But yeah, Bloodlines does a good job of introducing people into the World of Darkness, but I think extra reading and a little tabletop viewing is needed to learn some stuff that Bloodlines doesn't fully reveal to us: like the Camarilla not just being "uncool" of "stuffy," but genuinely pretty twisted when it comes to the rights of humans...which is to say they're virtually non-existent for Camarilla law. The only time they're going to care if you kill a human is if you violated the Masquerade/attracted Hunters by doing it, or if it was someone important to another Kindred of high standing...like killing a Primogen's ghoul, killing the Prince's great, great, great granddaughter, killing the mayor of a city whom the Camarilla was manipulating or had deals with (posing as humans if he/she isn't a ghoul, of course), and so forth.

Very true regarding the Camarilla.  That being said however, I don't think its just them that feel that way.  I mean Jack, who's an Anarch, feels pretty much the same way as the Camarilla regarding humans, all you have to do is ask him to find this out.  To him they're just cattle.  And Skelter, who sends you after Patty does NOT care if you kill her to get rid of her.  He just wants her gotten rid of.  I think its pretty much a common vampire trait in general for the most part.  Clearly not universally so as Toreador VV cares about the lives of humans she personally knows, though that really is a Toreador trait.  At any rate, I don't think you can really pin the attitude as solely a "Big bad evil Camarilla trait".

I think you can actually turn her, and Yukie :)!

Can't imagine Yukie agreeing to that.

You talk her into it by convincing her it would make her job hunting demons easier and give her even more power.

Actually it's depending on your romance state: both of you came to the conclusion you won't live without the other, so eternal love and stuff

Hmm, Yukie waifu is good Yukie, though for some reason, I'm a hell of a purist with my games. The Unofficial Patch's Plus version is as different as I tend to be comfortable going with modifying stuff in games...especially when it comes to dialog and characters. =p

So you could walk into a small city that has ten independent vampires in it, declare yourself the Prince, and now per Camarilla law, you run the city unless someone can "dethrone" you and become Prince in your place.

This sounds pretty much like the Anarchs do it with their Barons, so there is less difference as I though. I always go solo or with the Anarchs anyway...

I need to look into that, but I think you're right. However, the big difference between Camarilla and Anarchs here is that Barons don't have the legal authority to declare Blood Hunts or even to order anyone to do anything. If your Baron asks you to fight for him/her, you can say "no." The Baron acts as a Prince but does not have the ability to enforce his/her will through executions and law. He/She needs some serious Charisma, lol.  https://whitewolf.fandom.com/wiki/Baron_(VTM)

Or if you're name is Therese Voerman, you hire hit men to try to blow away the one who disappoints you.  :D

Haha, this is true. I mean "technically" if they succeed, no one will no the wiser!

Lets hope that we will get atleast one new clan for Bloodlines 2.

Those are some ambitious options further to the right, considering they don't even have Assamite, Giovanni, and Ravnos on there. =/

Ok but isn´t that bit pointless if we are talking about the same vacuum tubes which were used and disappear immediately in the libary?

I thought it would be illogical that the whole box magically disappears if you use one tube. Like we discussed before, it's no cutscene there!

Yeah these are clearly battle sounds but can´t they be used in the game?

Some are already used. I didn't test it completely, are these not their death sounds already?

Well, if you mean copying them as new lines (instead of using these which really probably will screw the game) to add more dialogue then yes it's possible and no it's outside the concept of the UP
I don´t want them to be dialogues with playeranswers. I thought that they could used more as automatic floats.
Yukie battle sounds would also make her fights more atmospheric.

I would guess that these are played when you are fighting them or with them. These are no real sentences anyway and there is a line to draw...

Especially the deathsounds from Yukie and Mandarin?
