I'd certainly like to see Yukie again. She was quite the heart-warming hunter. I get pretty friggin' tired of the Society of Leopold (SoL) types. Full-on zealotous hunters are good for morality-free kills, but they're narratively boring. I want hunters with whom I can have dialogs with, get threatened, vice versa, have uneasy alliances with, or even kill or ghoul not-so-bad ones to please my Kindred superiors.

But yeah, Yukie and/or lots of non-SoL hunters would make me quite happy.

Excellent point, I loved Yukie as well.

That's the problem right there! The game waits for you to deal with the guy and if you don't you only get to that dialogue section. Was he moved to the new have as well or did you loose him when moving? Anyway, I have build in a fail safe now for stupid things like this ;)!

Haha, I'm still finding stuff that needs fixing after all these years...though I didn't have to list dozens and dozens of issues on a page in tiny handwriting to report on a single run of the game like I used to. It's so close to "perfected" (as far as is possible, anyway).

The only conditions for that are G.Regent_Pissed != 3 and G.Regent_Introduced == 1 and G.Isaac_Please == 0, but you need to talk about the Anarchs with Caine first, which is a little bit confusing. I have added some more lines for the Camarilla ending there now...

What?! Seriously? I specifically didn't talk about the Anarchs with him because I was 100% not wanting to join the Anarchs and wanted to be sure I could join the Camarilla. XD  So do the new lines you've added let the player choose non-Prince Camarilla without having to choose the Anarch dialog options? If so, that's great. =)

That was already hidden in the game files, but I had to restore it :)!

That's some damn fine work. It's insane but positively glorious. <3

Hey, do some of the files improve the graphics of characters' eyes and of the menus and things? I noticed that a lot of characters' eyes looked REALLY good now, and the main menu is incredibly "crisp"/clear. :D

I think it's insane to suggest that criticism of books and writing can only come from writers. Most people can tell a good story from a bad one, because humans tell story to each other all the time, and are exposed to narrative on a daily basis (even those who run away screaming in fear at the mention of books).

People with bad taste still exist, of course, but you don't need a doctorate to recognize good/bad writing.

I never said non-writers didn't have a right to criticize, I myself am an amateur and wouldn't rank myself as a professional at this moment and I do have my own issues with videogame writing these days.

However, I always make sure not to be destructive about other people's hard work and effort, which is something that people in the videogame community do more often than not. It must deffinitely be quite the annoyance to spend hundreds of hours writing and polishing and editing story to then have some asshole in front of his computer writing "I HATE YOUR SJW BS. YUR WRITIN SUX"

Bioware is a goddamn paragon of the videogame industry. Most of the people in the CRPG community had their childhoods and adolescent years FORGED by Bioware videogames. So excuse me if I find it a tad annoying when they disparage a good game like Dragon Age: Inquisition, as if they had spent ANY time on a single page of a screenplay in their lives.

Do you legitimately believe that Bioware did the best they could with the writing in Dragon Age Inquisition and ME: Andromeda, though? Really? I mean obviously it's all opinions, but those games - especially ME: Andromeda - were markedly inferior to past stories. KotOR has one of the best plot twists I've ever seen anywhere, movies and television included.

Before the kuei gin where conceived, it was introduced one vampire clan/bloodlines from the far east (now not only is exinct but very probably also decanonized....)

From what I understand, there are still small populations of Cainite vampires in the East despite the existence of the Kuei-Jin.

Maybe some Tal'Mahe'Ra ?

Yes, such as some of the Nagaraja, which is the bloodline Pisha belongs to.

People this is 2019. There's no such thing as checkpoints anymore.

We hope.

I'd guess Jeanette's outfit - it seems to be the most famous.
For Jeanette and Jack Outfit you have to buy the Unsanctioned Edition or Blood Moon Edition.

Malkavians will have a fun time with that stop sign.

In "Beckett's Jyhad Diary", which basically explains the transition from V20 to V5 VtM, there are Thinbloods mentioned that suddenly got their full clan power, so this would even be canon.

Suddenly ?
