                You are vampires in the coastal town of Hawkport.
 
 The town has a relatively small population of vampires but most of them have met on occation exept for the new arrivals from the other towns in the area, driven to relocate for various reasons. Those who live here have survived in their supernatural form for some time now (I'd say anything from a few months to a number of decades) and they know why. Humans fear what they do not understand and they hate what they fear. Because of this, rules of survival has become common knowledge. Basically you do not endanger the existance of your fellow vampires with your actions. No one wants to be seen on the news for feeding in public for example.
 
 As vampires, you are set above mortals in many ways.
 
 1. You have unnatural strength. You might be able to lift a man by his throat but lifting a car over your shoulders is impossible.
 
 2. You can heal yourselves by redirecting the blood stored in your body. Regeneration. It's not an instant full heal and will take time. Usually one night or more for slashing wounds, gunshots and broken bones. In the case of lost limbs a week will work fine.
 
 3. The Dark Gifts. All vampires carry bloodborn gifts of a mystical origin. These include a limited measure of mind reading and control. Animals are easier to read because of their simple minds. Some have been known to turn this power to devestating ends by unlocking the subconcious of their victims, twisting them to insanity. More often by accident than by effort.
 You also have a mesmerising ability that manipulates the emotions of the victim, making deception (and seduction) all the more easy. Those aware of it might resist, though...
 Alternative powers can be discussed.
 
 Naturally, these abilities don't come easily and should never be taken for granted. Those capable of these feats have learned them through deliberate effort and I'd like to know the reasons behind your particular powers (if any).
 
 4. You can also create Ghouls by feeding a living creature some of your blood. Ghouling a human is generally looked down upon since they become a liability fast. The blood becomes like a drug to them and they crave it. Sometimes to a dangerous degree. Careless masters have found themselves victims of assault or even crimes of passion by their servants. The Ghouls generally mean well. It's just that their craving turns into an obsession and most cannot be considered "sane" by society's standards. They often adopt vampiric mannerisms and consume lives (like bugs) in an effort to sustain themselves. Submissive to the point of self harm and fanatic to their last breath, Ghouls require a lot of control and responsibility.
 The upside of Ghouling something is that it creates a bond of loyalty. A servant or bodyguard during the day. It also keeps the creature alive much like the vampiric condition but left without blood, the Ghoul will turn back into normal and revert to it's natural age, possibly killing it.
 
 5. On top of Ghouling, one can also create another vampire by draining the human dry and feeding the body a few drops of vampiric blood. This must be performed while the victim is still alive. A corpse will not reanimate even though the vampire technically dies a clinical death during it's following transformation. This is normally restriced since many shun the responsibility it brings. Depending on the rulers of the city in question that the maker lives in, it may be entirely forbidden on penalty of death due to population control. In Hawkport, the population is relatively low but each new arrival must be recorded before transformation.
 Some still do it out of need, companionship or even love.
 
 6. Feeding is handled pretty much the same way as vanilla VtM with the euphoria and woundlicking. Enjoy that kinky stuff, you little beasts!
 
 Of course, there are downsides.
 Sunlight burns your skin badly and will kill you almost instantly.
 Piercing the heart will induce a deathlike sleep that can be "cured" by removing the object that caused the injury.
 You must also feed regularly. Every night, some of the blood you've ingested will be used to sustain your existance and without it, you will shrivel up, become more and more corpselike and weak and eventually mummify. Reverting this is nearly impossible and you are effectively considered dead by vampiric society.
 And eternal life gives a certain detachment. The young still think and act like humans but the older vampires have likely seen too much and become jaded, regarding humans as little more than cattle and a nessecary evil.
 
 You have lived in this city for some time now and you are familiar with it's streets. You have most likely establised an identity to hide your natures from the mortals be it late night security guard, drug dealer, club owner or reclusive author. Others might be simple drifters. In any case, you know where you are and how to survive.
 
 The city consists of the Downtown area, housing the local police station, a few bars and questionable clubs. The Winston Discrict, named after a prominent local political figure houses most of the more fortunate individuals in the city, the local mall and the bank. The district mirrors its affluent inhabitants with expensive architecture, hotels and the Lucky Dog casino. A recently renovated building with a darker history than its shiny exterior will admit.
 Then comes the Old Town. Pretty much a slum these days but still contributes to the city since it also acts as the industrial area with it's various factories and storehouses. Most of it is run down and in a state of unforgivable disrepair. It also holds the only remaining entrance to the old subway system. Seemingly empty, the tunnels still house some life being a safe haven for the homeless. A solution carved from the ground by themselves when the city decided to ignore and forget.
 Finally there's the pier. What Downtown spits out ends up here. Some people live on their boats. Others live on the beach. Some don't live at all...
 
 Before the arrival of the vampires, Hawkport was a Mafia city capitalising on the ban on alcohol through the smuggling in the docks. When the bloodsuckers arrived, their connections to the outside drew away the mortal predators of the city, leaving the city in a broken state. With its mortal rulers gone, the city has been a sinking ship, a headless snake ever since the late 30's.
 It is now more riddled with more crime and corruption than ever before and the few legit officers of the police department are little more than mice fighting a lion.
 The vampires on the other hand thrive in this enviroment, manipulating humanity to serve their needs.
 The current council consists of Nathan Brown, former mafia advisor, Angelica Priest, Ivan Vasilyev and Julius Shepherd. Internal conflicts in later years have caused their power to deminish and some call them detached and out of touch. Talk about a coming change of power is heavy in the nighttime air and all that is needed now is a catalyst.
 
 Recently, a newly turned vampire refused to accept the gift and commited suicide by facing the sun. Unfortunatly, this event was witnessed by mortal bystanders and while their accounts of the event have been brushed off as lies and insane ranting by the general public, it has attracted the attention of the enemy. Vampire hunters have come to the city and no one is safe. Covering up their kills and moving from city to city, these soldiers of the Church attempt to hunt the vampires to extinction. Will you allow this to happen here?
 
 Questions and details will be worked out as we go along. We'll discuss the personality and backgrounds of your characters and set the scene.
 
 If you swallowed the bait I'd like your character sheets to look something like this:
 
 Name:
 Gender:
 Age:
 Appearance: (Including defining features and clothing.)
 Possessions: (Think fancy car, apartment and so on.)
 Personality:
 History:
 
 Do excuse if it seems full of holes. I've rewritten most of my old material and I haven't slept at all tonight so my brain is elsewhere.

                Excellent.
 
 I have a question though - I want to start off as a Kine, perhaps one of the innocent bystanders who witnessed this accident.
 
 I figured it would make an interesting contrast seeing as how it's likely everyone else will begin as Kindred. I also thought it would add some interest to the plot if my Kine character somehow ended up serving as a Ghoul, or simply turned into Kindred by one of our players.
 
 what do you guys think?
 
 If the idea is difficult, then I'm happy to start off as Kindred if that makes it easier for everyone.

 Depends on you, really. It might be fun but (there's always a but) you'd have to be willing to start entirely from scratch with the persona and roleplay the transition accordingly. The initial shock from being transformed and accepting this new life and a general depandancy toward your new "parent" even as the hunters start stirring up trouble. Being a Ghoul requires a different mindset too. You'll change a lot. Even the toughest gang mebmer becomes a meek servant who lives to serve (and eat bugs).
 The idea isn't difficult if you can make it easy. It's up to you. Good luck.

 Name: Mei
 Gender: Female
 Age: 23 (human years) 3-4 (vampire years)
 
 Appearance: Of Asian descent. Straight jet black hair down to the back of shoulder-blades, dark brown eyes. Slightly above average height, compact body. Well-formed limbs. A little more physically fit than your average girl. Most distinguishing facial features are a pair of full lips, naturally rosy even without lipstick, and a healthy slight flush of the cheeks. Usually seen in a baby T-shirt, worn blue jeans and a pair of scuffy sneakers. Favors woolen turtlenecks on colder days. Possesses a golden tattoo of a serpent from the top of her spine, all the way down to the small of her back, where the serpent's tail end touches the cleft of her buttocks. Even in dim light, the tattoo shimmers with a mystical aura, not least due to the gold ink.
 
 Possessions: Lives alone in a small, average one-roomed flat overlooking Downtown. Does not own any mode of transport. Her possessions are few, indicating her income level. The apartment is simply but tastefully furnished with scattered cushions and beaded curtains dividing the living space from the kitchen. The smell of musky incense always lingers heavily in the air, and a small rosewood altar stands along one wall, upon which sits a carved image of an erect cobra, lit around by a dozen candles. Evidence of her love for gardening is found in the small planters lining the tiny balcony, where yellow and white roses bloom abundantly despite the lack of sunlight. Her only weapon is a small dagger, often concealed somewhere about her person. It has a silver hilt and scabbard featuring a snake coiled around it, and its blade honed to chilling sharpness.
 
 Personality: Quiet, reserved, often appearing aloof. She cares more than she lets on, favoring action over words.
 
 History: Mei was born Chng Mei Lan, 1 March 1983 in Shanghai, China. At the age of six, her family, along with her grandmother, immigrated to Hawkport in search of a better life. They made their way to the small Chinatown district of the coastal town, where her parents set up a laundry shop. Young Mei, as she was fondly called by her grandmother, spent most of her childhood playing with other immigrant children along the streets. For the better part of her afternoons, however, she would help her grandmother in her herbal remedies shop, often running small errands such as delivering Grandmother's potions to clientele. Most of the family money went towards Mei's education. After classes, she would head to Grandmother's store and resume her errands, often spending the nights finishing her homework in the shop while Grandmother rested upstairs.
 
 One evening, a stranger appeared, enquiring about a special potion he insisted that only her grandmother could offer. Mei tried to turn him away, as far as she knew in all her life spent with Grandmother, she never dispensed remedies utilising such formulas. Most of her medicine were made from herbs and small marine-life, and the harder Mei tried to turn him away, the louder their argument became, until Mei lost her temper and pushed him into a wall. The man's eyes glowed with a scarlet light, and as his mouth opened in a feral smile, he uttered the words that Mei would never forget: "Because of your foolishness, child...your Grandmother will never again see the dawn, and neither will you." So saying, he launched himself at her.
 
 Mei awoke on the floor of the shop several hours later. As the events of the evening rushed back to her, she ran upstairs to find her grandmother cold and lifeless on her pallet. What was more horrifying were the changes in the young girl's body; her flesh had lost its human glow, and she felt an overwhelming urge to feed. Before she knew what she was doing, Mei had leapt upon the still figure of her grandmother, and drained the blood within.
 
 Horrified, repulsed and confused at what she had done, Mei stole back into her own room, grabbing some clothes and raiding the old biscuit tin where her parents kept some money for a rainy day. She ran and ran, never knowing where she ended up, not caring. Eventually she found herself at the docks, where she spent herself crying.
 
 Estranged from the only family she ever knew, Mei had no choice but to find herself shelter for the time being. For the next half a year, she occupied a small corner of an abandoned warehouse. Realizing she needed money if she was to get out of this decrepit hole, the sixteen year old tried looking for work at several eateries, but none were willing to take her in. Out of sheer desperation, Mei relented when a "talent scout" approached her at a street corner one night, offering her work that would pay well if she was obedient to the rules. She was soon to discover that the rules included pleasing every client that came into the place she worked at, and that she was never to remove the leather collar around her neck. Training was provided for every new employee, as a way of ensuring quality control, and with her exotic looks, Mei was soon tucking away tips amounting to $1000 at least twice each night.
 
 Despite her apparent success, there was never a night that Mei would not cry herself to sleep when daylight approached. By then she had resigned herself to the fact that she was something unnatural, a creature of the night. She fed only when necessary, though she was never lacking nourishment given the nature of her job. She also knew how dangerously she wielded life and death, after almost killing a client by draining him, to fill her belly and sate her anger when he had violated her one time too many.
 
 Gradually, it occurred to Mei that not only could she conceal her fangs by will, but that tiny indents had formed at each tip. When she was hungry, she would taste a bitter liquid that leaked from her fangs. It was later, when she tried to save a blind man from a street thug, that she discovered she was immune to the poisonous liquid, but that others were not.
 
 At twenty-one, Mei was turned out of the club when she threatened a client with her knife after he promised to insert a burning candle in her nether regions. By then she had enough to purchase a small flat in the heart of town, and opened a tattoo parlour some distance away. Her services soon grew to be popular, for Mei's tattoos were infused with a concoction of herbs to soothe away daily stresses, even if only in small amounts, and for an exclusive price, a customer could ask for his or her tattoo to be infused with gold or silver dust.
 
 While she has carved a name for herself and lives in relative solitary peace, Mei's soul is forever tormented by the events surrounding her grandmother and the mysterious stranger those many years ago.

 I'll read through it thoroughly in a while. I've been sleeping all day again and I can't think to save my life.
 
 (later)
 
 Well your vampiric "parent" made you without permission so the rest of the community wouldn't know about your existence. You'd probably have to change the backstory to include a meeting with a fellow vampire to know that you're not alone and an official "registration" with the Council. Could have happened anytime. Take your pick.
 
 I don't know what use you'd have for the snakebite Dark Gift thing but you might have some idea. I don't know where it'd come from, though. Any suggestions? Some exotic bloodline? I did state that the usual clansystem isn't in place but there are a whole bunch of vampire myths around.
 It's not worthy to be called a problem, really but give it some thought.

 1. Banes as in spirits or banes as in vampiric weaknesses?
 
 2. Think Quinn from the movie Blade. He loses his arm serveral times over the course of the story and it grows back. I took my inspiration from that. Removed limbs evaporate into ash so there's nothing to reattach.

 A stake in the ticker turns you into a veggie.
 That goes for stabbings and gunshots too provided that they hit that precious organ. Hunters would use fire to prevent proper regeneration too and chopping off the head kills pretty much anything that isn't a cocroach.
 
 As for silver, that has applied to vampires for longer than any werewolf. With this being based on "classic" vampirism, I could go for most classic harmful stuff but I'm not going to use anything people won't want.
 I'm willing to use holy symbols/water and possibly silver if others allow it. Otherwise we could just use the basics in the upper paragraph. It's all good.

If you noticed, I kept my story quite open to the end. Bearing in mind too that Mei was turned vampire not so long ago. There is a lot of potential for her to grow, and I left it that way as well. Whether or not I choose to further develop her is up to me.

                ((Dare I enter? ah what the hell. my fisrt attempt at being anything but a toreador-esque kind of vampire. tell me what you guys think))
 
 Name: Antonio Fabiano
 
 Gender: Male
 
 Age: human age 31, blood age 74
 
 Gifts: due to the nature of his work, Tony is gifted with super-human speed and reflexes, as well as stealth skills bordering on literal invisibilty. people will literally look right at him and not even notice hes there if he wishes it. this gift has no effect on cameras or other forms of survailence however.
 
 Appearance: Italian decent. Large roman nose, short dark brown hair, dark eyes, ready smile. Handsome. Not slight of build, nor particularly buff,but fit. average height and weight.  Usually wears well cut but dark colored suits, Armani or the like.  
 
 Possessions:Well appointed apartment in the Winston Dist.(provided by council). Various firearms, vintage an modern (most commonly a pair of nickel plated baretta 9mm, a 9 in. k-bar, and an antique but heavily modified Thompson A1 sub-machine gun. tools of the trade). A black lamborghini (also provided by council). Tony needs nothing else. ((im sort of like a sheriff, if you didnt guess))
 
 Personality: Cold, quiet, and efficient. Charming when he wants to be, some rare outbursts of tremendous violence. Gentleman death in a suit and tie. some things never change.
 
 History: Working for peanuts as a mob hitman has its perks. Free food wherever I went, all my wants and expenses taken care of, fear, respect, all i could ever want. Sure it was a dangerous living, but thats why i loved it right? Yeah, life was good. Until the sent me after her.
          I had never seen anyone so...perfect. Enough to make a vicious bastard like me cry. I approached her at the bar, we spoke, i bought her a drink, we danced, i kissed her, and we went to her room. i shut the door quietly behind me. she had stepped out on the balcony. so beautiful. so...delicate. It broke my heart, what i had to do. I walked out to her, took her in my arms. she was shaking. i asked her "whats the matter, doll?" she smiled, told me they were after her. she was scared. I told her it would be all right, told her, id protect her, kissed her and held her tighter. then, bang.
          I dropped the gun, and held her as she fell. she looked into my eyes, not confused, or hurt, not afraid...just sad. I held her till her eyes closed. then got up and fixed myslef a drink. quiet. it was so quiet. i downed it in a single gulp. then i heard a noise. i started to turn, blackness.
          I woke up on the bed. she was in the chair. smiling, laughing at me. said, "now you can protect me forever" i was scared, i felt...strange, then she told me. a vampire. a fucking vampire. i laughed. she was joking. her, me , vampires? imsane. "This is 1931 babe", i said. " the dark ages are over." she laughed at me. such a beautiful laugh. then i started to feel it. the thirst. boiling, screaming inside me. i asked her what shed done to me. she said she already told me. I got mad, madder than id ever been. i grabbed her. she was so light. i slammed her head into the wall, and she screamed. i slammed her and slammed her until she went limp, then i threw her off the balcony. she burst into flames on the way down. i cried then, i think, maybe i was just bleeding. i ran and ran until i was in some alley with a bum in my mouth, struggling as i drank him dry.
          I went on for nights and nights, maybe a month, confused, angry...then i met another. beat me over the head. i woke up in a dark room. "nathan, we thought you were dead". "I am dead tony, i am." and thats how it started. i was gentleman death again. only now i was with a different outfit, stronger, better funded. eternal. ill never get used to that. I'm immortal. I'll live forever. And i hate myself.

 Well "unsanctioned" vampires are bound to pop up everywhere and I'd guess that leaving out the introduction to mainstream vampiric society would cause the Council to consider your character something of a mutt but maybe you wanted to have that independence? It's not that important. Just a detail.

If you noticed, I kept my story quite open to the end. Bearing in mind too that Mei was turned vampire not so long ago. There is a lot of potential for her to grow, and I left it that way as well. Whether or not I choose to further develop her is up to me.
 

 
 Earlier I wrote about the basic setup of gifts that tend to manifest based on books and stuff I've been reading and while that's the safest setup to go with in term of recognition (think Dominate, Auspex, Presence) to be nice to those used to VtM vampirism, I don't mind some creativity. I was just juggling some ideas around, checking if you had something special in mind.

 Yep, I'd guessed we were going to use the basic Disciplines (Auspex, etc) as a sort of template for our behaviours. I never intended to overwrite that at all. But I thought to include additional stuff, things that aren't even vampire canon, but close enough to add some pizzazz to the usual bite-n-feed. I don't own any books on WoD or vampires, so I'm writing stories as I go along. I'm not an uber-player, and I don't believe in giving my characters abilities that are too ridiculous. Unless of course the DM/Storyteller has a problem with it.
