Title: Re: Raven's Call Discussion and Kickoff
Post by: [archive] Signothorn on March 02, 2005, 09:23:00 AM
                Ravenmill is a medium-sized city, not far from the South Branch Reservation, in Hunterdon, New-Jersey. The name of the town reputedly came from an Indian tribe that held these grounds in times past.  Growing from a small logging town to a large industrialized city after the turn of the 20th century, Ravenmill began attracting new citizens. The Cainite society soon followed. The Sabbat was the first to enter the city, taking over the industrial area and the slums as it's own. The homeless soon began to disappear, but few paid attention. These things happened. No one really cared. The Camarilla made a pitch at the town pretty soon after the Sabbat expanded it's breaches of the Masquerade to unacceptable grounds. Unfortunately, they were too late to prevent the escalating damage. Several groups of hunters, the Society of Leopold being the largest, set up bases in the city, and began decimating the Kindred of the city. The aftermath of this three-fold battle resulted in the Sabbat being driven out of the city. The Camarilla ordered that a low profile should be kept, as the hunters weren't likely to leave a city they have marked as a 'den of evil'.
 
 The battle for the city ended 20 years ago. Today, it is all different.
 
 The city of Ravenmill is no longer prospering. The industrial boom is over. The decline set in ten years ago, and no improvement is in sight. The industrial area and the warehouses are half-abandoned, as business interests left the area, to look for cheaper labor abroad. The Kindred community has been having some recent overtures, as well. The Anarch movement has taken control of the slums and lower-class residential areas, and while it is not in open warfare with the Camarilla, the rumbles are already heard. The arrival of the Kuei-Jin to the town is not a good sign for the things to come, either. For now, they keep themselves within the confines of Ravenmill's small Chinatown. Attempts to discern the goals of the Kuei-Jin have so far met a fatal end, and few would agree to try, these days.
 
 People of Note:
 
  Faleramo Benedict
 Embrace: Unknown. Estimated to be around 1300 AD.
 Clan: Lasombra antitribu.
 Generation:7th.
 Description: Faleramo came over to the Camarilla in 1734. The suspicion about his defection was greatly cleared by the information he supplied, and by the zeal he then took the Camarilla's goals as his own, but a few of the elders still suspect his defection. As far as the Sabbat is concerned, Faleramo knows more than most, and can expect the moves of several of their elders he had known in his time with the Sabbat. He had personally planned the eradication of the Sabbat in Ravenmill, and became Prince for his abilities more than for his age. He tends to wear dark, expensive, suits, sometimes of a style several centuries out of date. He has a small beard and moustache, and tends to wear a dark  hat at most social occasions. Like all Lasombra, he casts no reflections, and has several self-portraits of himself scattered over the Benedict Foundation building.
 Portrait:
 
 
 
 Halton
 Embrace: Estimated to be around 1920.
 Clan: Nosferatu.
 Generation: 10th.
 Description: Halton's an unknown. No one is sure who sired him, or where, but the few rumors that have reached the other Kindred's ears point to the vicinity of Chicago. For the disadvantages of his lineage, Halton has achieved much in both the Camarilla and Ravenmill. No one is sure when he met Faleramo, but he appeared in Ravenmill at the same time as he, and took an active part in cleaning the city from the Sabbat's presence. He soon became both the Prince's Seneschal and Sheriff, both roles being extremely uncommon for a Nosferatu. Halton's got his ear to the ground, even if the local Nosferatu aren't on the friendliest terms with him, and he mostly knows what's happening in Ravenmill before his clan-mates. He gives good, but rather straightforward advice, to the Prince, and takes the physical part of Sheriff seriously. If someone needs to die, then he dies, and usually few know of it. Halton prefers to keep his work as silent as possible. If he believes someone needs to be dragged to the Prince, then that someone will either be knocked out or staked, and brought to the Prince. If that someone is still capable of resistance, and tries to, then what is left, if there is, is dragged to the Prince. Halton might be a complicated person, but he prefers to work in uncomplicated ways. Simple works best, is what he always says.
 
 His clothing varies, although it tends to be flashy most of the time, but most can recognize him by the lack of his left ear.
 Portrait:
 
 
 Revikal
 Embrace: 1862.
 Clan: Tzimisce.
 Generation: 10th.
 Description: Former Bishop of Ravenmill, Revikal has been trying to restore the Sabbat's power ever since he was driven out. His failure to keep Ravenmill in the Sabbat's power, which resulted in him being one of the few survivors of Ravenmill's Sabbat, and several subsequent failures to retake Ravenmill, have left Revikal a bitter man. It has also left him a worried one. His Lasombra superiors have told him that destroying the Prince will earn him much prestige within the Sabbat. They left him to figure out the consequences of failure for himself. Revikal knows that his next chance might very well be his last.
 
 Revikal is an expert of the Tzimisce Discipline of Vicissitude,  and his appearance shows it. From the bone protrudes on his hands to the prolonged skull, Revikal has reshaped his body to fit his needs.
 
 O'Neil
 Embrace:1973.
 Clan: Brujah.
 Generation:11th.
 Description: O'Neil's loud, charismatic, and extremely paranoid. The ideal Brujah Anarch. Formerly a member of the IRA, he was on a fund-raising trip in the US when an Anarch saw the abilities O'Neil possessed, and decided they would better serve the Anarch cause. O'Neil leads the Anarchs in Ravenmill, and often talks loudly of trying to reshape it in the image of LA. So far, it has been mostly talk, and there have been only a few clashes between the Anarchs and the Camarilla. O'Neil is a large man, with a striking personality. If he can convince you to join the Anarch cause, so much the better. If not, then he'll likely strike you.
 
 Places of Note:
 
 Industrial Area: From run down factories, to abandoned warehouses, the industrial area is a Kindred's dream if he wishes to stay undetected. It was formerly held by the Sabbat, and there are rumors that several warehouses and underground complexes still hold undiscovered… experiments.
 
 
 The Hole in the Wall: A large biker bar on the fringes of the slums, this place is the watering hole of the Anarch Movement.
 
 The Slums: The poorest area of Ravenmill, this area is filled with poorly-built and half-ruined residential blocks. The homeless fill the alleys and streets, and few would reside here by choice.
 
 Residential Area: Residential blocks, a few stores. Nothing fancy, really.
 
 Downtown: Corporate sky-scrapers, office buildings, nightclubs. This is the heart of Ravenmill. Melbourne Museum, a large attraction for both locals and visitors, has it's place here. Few know about the large underground complex, marked in the blueprints as 'storage', which holds the city's Tremere Chantry. This area is also the location of the seat of the Prince's power, the Benedict Foundation sky-scraper.
 
 Pete's Gun Shop: "Come right in, kid. Don't worry, I know the deal, and I ain't got a problem with serving your kind. So, what'll it be today? Desert eagles, MP's, precision rifles, AK's, and I've got a few grenades in the back. Careful with that one, kid, that's imported. Where do I get all this, kid? Echoes of the cold war…"
 
 Moor Avenue: The high society residential area, this is where the richer people of Ravenmill live their lives. Or Un-lives.
 
 Outskirts: Few of the city's Kindred choose to live in the outskirts of town, as the close proximity to the reservation, grounds overrun with werewolves, makes all but few of the Cainites extremely nervous. The outskirts hold the Ravenmill Mental Institute, an old, run-down, insane asylum that is now the home of the Malkavian Primogen and his bizarre experimentations.

 This is the setting of the story, if you haven't figured that out yet. ;-)
 Please post your characters here for my approval. If you believe you need to ask me something about your character, please PM me. I'll only allow a character from a Bloodline or independent Clan if you can convince me that this char would have a reason to be in the city. For example, setting up a backround for a Giovanni character isn't too difficult, as the Giovanni have business interests just about anywhere. Playing as Nagaraja, on the other hand, will be a bit more difficult. Just so's you'd know, I don't allow the players to be members of the Sabbat. Plot reasons, you understand. You can forget about True Brujah and Old Clan Tzimisce, too. If it's any consolation, I'll probably allow a Lasombra antitribu.
 
 Anyways, I'll be writing down the first post of the story, and start it officially in the next few days, possibly tomorrow even. For now, post your characters.
 
 I'm adding a Clans Link and a Discipline Link, so you will know what your character will be capable of:
 
 Clans and Bloodlines
 Vampire Disciplines
 
 A good character template would be the following:
 
 Name:
 Gender:
 Clan:
 Sect:
 Age\Embrace:
 Generation:
 Appearance:
 Personality:
 History:
 Disciplines:
 
 In the Disciplines section, you need write down what disciplines your character is focused on. What's it capable of, sort of thing. Other capabilities, such as focus on melee over guns, likable personality and so on, should be written down in Personality, or  History.
 
 Get to it. ;-)

Post by: [archive] Grendel8101 on March 02, 2005, 02:45:00 PM
                Name: Dustin Walking Hawk
 
 Gender: Male
 
 Clan: Gangrel
 
 Sect: Anarch sympathizer
 
 Age/Embrace: b.1960, embraced in 1985
 
 Generation: 10th (unknown to him; see history)
 
 History:  In life, Dusty was born on the Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota to a white mother and an absent Lakota father.  He ran wild in the dusty prairie all through childhood.
   
   Dusty briefly joined the American Indian Movement before falling out with the organization, and with Indian society in general.  He viewed his people as having a broken spirit and this disheartened him.
   
   On a winter day nearing dusk he was out hunting.  He was tracking what he believed was a coyote when he was attacked.  He awoke embraced, though he didn't know this word, and alone.  His sire, like many Gangrel, had abandoned him.
   
   For the next 20-odd years he haunted the plains, living wild and hunting deer and small animals for blood.  Occasionally he would feed off a human, but generally avoided contact with them.  Rural adolescents constructed the myth of the Coyote Man around encounters with and sightings of him.
   
   Brief encounters with other kindred have given Dusty vague impressions of vampire politics and practices, but for the most part he is ignorant of these things.
   
   *In late 2004, Dusty started receiving messages from someone claiming to be his sire.  These messages have lead him to Ravenmill.
   
   Since coming to the city, Dusty has had a difficult time adapting.  As he has learned more about the politics of Kindred, he feels drawn to the Anarch movement, preferring their love of freedom over the cold rule of the Cammarilla and the sadistic practices of Sabbat.
 
 
 
 Appearance:  Dusty has yellow eyes and dog-like fangs, curving back rather than pointing straight down.  He has black hair.  His face has started to become more dog-like.
   Years of living wild have marked him.  He occasionally forgets to wear shirts and shoes, and will run on all fours if he forgets he is in a city.
   He paints his face black when he knows he will be in a fight.
   His Protean wolf is tawny, looking more like a coyote except for the size (part of the myth behind Coyote Man)
   
 Personality:  Dusty is plane-spoken and dry.  He keeps his thoughts to himself for the most part.  He does have a mischievous streak that can get him in trouble.
   He has a peculiar relationship with his Beast.  He recognizes it as a part of him, and allows it some influence in his thought.  The Beast's Frenzy and instincts have saved him numerous times, but surrendering to it would get him killed.  If he feels the need to Frenzy, without cause, he will hunt down animals and act out the Beast's brutal desires.
   Dusty's theory is that the best way to deal with the Beast is not to overcome it and drive it out, nor to give in to it totally, but to someday merge with the Beast until there is no separation.  Whether this is wisdom or idiocy remains to be seen; however, he has unintentionally Frenzied relatively rarely in his life.
   
   Dusty is good with a knife or a gun, but best with his claws.  He carries an old Colt SAA revolver, passed down and rebuilt for several generations of his mortal family.
   
 Disciplines:  Protean(4) Dusty can turn into a wolf or a black vulture.  Animalism(5).  Fortitude(3).

                Lars Mahn
 Clan: Toreador
 Sect: Camarilla
 Embrace: sometime in the late 1910s
 Generation: 9th
 Appearance: tall fellow, wears hair in a braid, simple garments, reasonably good looking, kind of "Joe Average" in a crowd.
 
 finally finished portrait
 
 (edit - no use in reposting it again, just go to the artwork thread instead)
 
 History: Eastern culture enthusiast, born in 1882 in Vienna, Austria. Fascinated by the recently abolished at the time samurai philosophy traveled all the way to Japan in order to study the philosphophy behind martial arts.
 Embraced in the first years of the XX century by his sensei, the meanwhile deceased Nakamura Yana. Interested mostly in the (sword) arts, kenbu (a style of swordplay closer to dancing than actuall combat) in particular, doesn't concern himself with Kindred politics, though seeing Camarilla's code of conduct as a honorable path (more than the Anarchs or Sabbat alternatives anyway) abides by the rules and aids the Prince's people without much arguement. Currently owns the Kenjutsu Ryuha martial arts school located in the Ravenmill Residential Area.
 Disciplines: the typical bunch - Auspex (6), Presence (4), Celerity (3), with an emphasis on Auspex, for the insight it provides.
 Personality and Traits: Likable fellow in general, if a bit aloof. Takes the "self perfection" element from Iaido philosophy seriously, though not quite to the point of egomania. Occasionally spends entire nights meditating, or quite frankly, doing nothing. At such times all calls and interesants are redirected to his secretary Martina or personal assistant Markus.

                Name: Jacob Saunders (?)
 Gender: Male
 Clan: Malkavian
 Sect: Camarilla/Undecided
 Age\Embrace: 22/1996
 Generation: 12th
 Appearance: Jake has long brown hair that is just left messy and unstyled, his face is a little chubby with many imperfections, but he is by no means unattractive, he just doesn't care much for his appearance. He has blue eyes that many have commented on and said look almost hypnotic. He is of medium build and is 6'1" tall, he looks a little weak, but his strength is deceptive. His clothes do not tend to differ much from day to day, he wears scruffy t-shirts and jeans and not much else.
 Personality: Because Jake carries the cursed blood of Malkav, not only must he prowl the night feeding on the blood of others, but he is incurably insane. His derangement is Multiple Personality Disorder, and so does not appear to have a single personality, he appears to suffer from random mood swings, either when provoked or seemingly pointlessly, at times he can be very aggressive and has been known to kill in fantastically brutal ways, he prefers to fight, a hammer being a favourite, with a melee weapon over a gun or his fists, but he often does not seem at all violent. His most prominent personality is very inquisitive and questions the very fabric of the world around us, he may often see things that others do not, but it is often unknown as to whether this is a hallucination or if it is real. His (or their?) name is thought to be Jacob Saunders - he has been recognised by some mortals - but often doesn't answer to that name. Apocalypse, Black Jack, The Screen and Vitreous are thought to be the names of some personalities, but there are thought to be a great deal more.
 History: Jake's first memory is his embrace, the whole of his life is a mystery, although he has met some people who claim to have known him in life, they are quick to get away from him when he starts to talk to them, he makes them feel uneasy. His embrace was brutal, his sire used many implements to drain his blood, blades, power tools and even guns were used to break the skin away. His sire was experimenting with the embrace and didn't realise the terror he was unleashing on his victim. His ignorance was his demise, as shortly after becoming a vampire, Jake frenzied and fed on his sire to final death, an act he has not spoken of to anyone. The trauma left Jake with multiple personalities to cope with the pain and humiliation. Jake then wandered the streets of London for almost 9 years, having been cast out of both mortal and Kindred society, feeding on rats and the homeless to survive. He knows only of the masquerade, and the history of Kindred by what the odd Nosferatu told him. He has been told that he is a Camarilla and must report to the Prince, but he has never wanted to be a part of the Kindred society. Recently he heard The Call and became aware of The Cobweb, from then he found himself obliged to travel to the US and Ravenmill, but is he the one who controls his own feet?
 Disciplines: Obfuscate, Dementation, Auspex. All disciplines are equally concentrated on as Jake has little use for disciplines, he uses Obfuscate when needing to hide, Dementation when manipulating foes and Auspex when in his inquisitive mind. His disciplines are not used very often and so are underdeveloped.

                Name: Khalid Al-Mufrid
 Gender: Male
 Clan: Assamite
 Sect: Independent
 Age\Embrace: 27\1997
 Generation: 8th
 Appearance:
 
 
 Khalid looks like the kind of person you don’t want to meet in an dark alley, especially once you’ve found out that’s exactly where he hangs out a lot. Though, with his eastern features, length measuring five foot and thirteen inches, his pale green eyes and the ‘sleek’ look, some women would consider him handsome anyway.
 
 That is, the few that can make out his features under the dusty, brown hood he usually wears, pulled down, to hide as much of his face as possible. You’ll rarely see him in non-functional clothing. His own appearance is important to him, but not all too important. He makes sure he keeps sufficiently shaven, as to not develop a beard. Most of the time, he does his own hair, merely making sure it’s not obstructing his view or is irritating in any other way.
 
 Personality: A cold blooded killer. That’s how most of Khalid’s business associates describe him. People don’t easily like him, and he doesn’t easily like people. He’s a bit of a loner, a loner who doesn’t allow himself to show any weakness. This is partly because of the criminal underworld he’s in and a big part of it, is the Masquerade he still upholds, unlike some of his brethren.
 
 His strong will, coupled with the disability to be lenient towards most other Kine and Kindred, has a strong effect on how he approaches his unlife. He solves problems by simply eliminating what’s causing him the problem. If it’s impossible to do this, for instance if bound by honour or other rules, as a last resort, he’ll try to negotiate, but even then he’ll budge as little as possible.
 
 And even with all this, he isn’t truly evil or cruel towards the whole world. He still has respect for some. Often it’s the case that those he respects are just as harsh and straight-to-the-point as he himself. Also, his fairly harsh and uncaring character doesn’t disable him to see beauty in others, especially women. Some would claim that women are indeed his weak point.
 
 The effect of a beautiful woman on Khalid is dulling his senses, and will get things easier done with him. When it comes to the innocent, the old, weak, the children, he’s not cruel either. He’ll just ignore them, and think they’re not worthy of his attention, or too time consuming. Then again, with a suitable contract, he’d kill them without a second thought.
 
 History: The Assamite Khalid Al-Mufrid was born in the underbelly of Cairo, Egypt, to a gang leader and his latest ‘love’, in their own house. Growing up amongst violence, Khalid didn’t knew any better then to do what his father did: he waged war with other gangs, the cops…basically everyone that got in his or his dad’s way. When he grew older, he started to display qualities greatly appreciated amongst the local criminals, and in particular this gang: strength, endurance, willpower and great skill in hand to hand fighting.
 
 Not surprisingly, those qualities didn’t come out of thin air. The roughest and toughest of his father’s gang were always there to bully them...and to teach him. Whenever he would try and run of to his old man, that same man drove him back onto the streets. It was a tough and rough life, but like no other, his parents knew that you had to be strong, enduring, skilful and have great willpower.
 
 Of those four, his willpower was most impressive. In fact, he’s known to refuse to acknowledge that he’s mortally wounded, until well after the battle.
 
 This willpower, this stubbornness, got him in the problems that would change his life for the good. And the worse…
 
 His prowess surely but slowly got him in the chain of command of his dad’s gang: the Darksteel Lords. After some years of backstabbing, bribing, assassinations and duelling, he finally made it to second hand man of his own father. The way towards that position had been paved with problems, but with overcoming every major problem, came a lot of money. With the money, he had been able to buy himself quality equipment unavailable to most of the ‘competition’, which meant he had an edge. Most infamous was the acquiring of an traditional Egyptian weapon: the kopesh “Arrakisâ€?.
 
 One day, all that remained was becoming gang leader of the Darksteel Lords. But unlike others, he was resentful to kill his own dad. Luckily, his dad soon retired, as peacefully as could be expected from a veteran gang leader, allowing his son to take over the reign of their gang. That was the change for good.
 
 The change for the worse, however, came fast as well. The Darksteel Lords had drawn the attention of other gangs, who’d like to assimilate them for their men, territory and resources. Almost all gangs were beaten back in brutal street wars, or assimilated themselves, until the Bloody Hands gang struck…
 
 Their leader, Kael Malone, challenged Khalid Al-Mufrid into an honourless duel: a duel with his champion. Khalid accepted, not thinking of the consequences, but only of showing that a mere champion shouldn’t represent Kael Malone. His own second hand man tried to convince him to just turn over, but Khalid simply scoffed the old man, saying he was a coward, and fought out the duel later that night.
 
 It was true that Khalid was very capable, but the champion was no match for him: the Assamite Kindred, for that was who the champion turned out to be, finished Khalid in a few hours. Only his fabled willpower granted him enough power to survive.
 
 Although in the end he had been defeated, Al-Mufrid managed to wound the Assamite, and as he literally dragged himself outside, the Assamite followed, leaving Malone and his gang to the assimilation of the Darksteel Lords. His contract had been the elimination of Khalid, and with that contract fulfilled, he no longer was bound to Kael.
 
 So it came to be that he decided to turn Khalid into a Ghoul and put him on the path towards becoming an Assamite: Numair had been thoroughly impressed by Khalid’s performance, not only in the duel, but also in the years that he had observed his ascension in the gang.
 
 Numair’s decision turned out to be a good one. The first seven years, Khalid prospered: finally free of the strains of leading a gang, he could concentrate on the art of killing, under his would-be-Sire’s tutelage. Finally, after those seven years, came seven years of servitude as a Kindred. Numair found the decision of actually Sireing an easy one: the seven years as an Ghoul, Khalid had performed exceedingly well, and the Assamite Elders supported Numair introducing him to the mysteries of the Clan, fighting techniques such as the Egypt-specific sebekkha and teaching him the advanced techniques of assassination.
 
 The final test came at the end of the seventh year. Numair had decided Khalid needed new hunting grounds, and send him to the United States of America, with the mission to bring as much honour to the Clan as he could.
 Khalid Al-Mufrid accepted this mission without hesitation and promised that he would follow his Sire’s last instructions. Once in America, he wandered along the east coast, and after a year, he ended up in Ravenmill. War was afoot and he smelled business opportunities...
 
 Disciplines: Celerity, Obfuscate, Quietus. Khalid has concentrated on Celerity the most and he’s able to increase his speed to the point he can run across water or run up walls. After that, he concentrated on Quietus, to the point where he can transmute his blood into a virulent ichor that destroys any living or undead flesh it touches. Lastly, he concentrated on Obfuscate, which he can use able to move about unseen and unheard.

Post by: [archive] Miyo34949332 on March 04, 2005, 08:06:00 AM
                Name: Miyo Hoshimaru
 
 Gender: Female
 
 Clan: Malkavian
 
 Sect: Camarilla
 
 Age/Embrace: Born 1962, Embraced 1981
 
 Generation: 10th
 
 Appearance:  Miyo is 5’7, half Japanese and half German.  She looks more on the German side with her reddish brown hair.  She has a slender build.  Miyo wears a white shirt that cuts off at the stomach.  The sleeves go down just a little past her elbow.  She wears lightly platform boots with her jeans.  She also has a light brown coat that comes down to her thighs.  Miyo looks quite normal for a Malkavian.  She has a likeable smile but there’s still something about her that makes you want to keep your distance.  Perhaps it’s something in those dark eyes or maybe, its just a gut feeling.  
 
 Personality:  Miyo is quite easy to get along with.  You wouldn’t want to upset her though.  Even though she may not show it, but on the inside, it’s certain that she is plotting revenge.  Over the years, Miyo has become quite good with Asian style swords.  Her weapon of choice would be a Japanese tanto or katana.  Miyo suffers from Schizophrenia.  Often she hears the voices of her mother and sister.  Along with also hearing other voices in her head, she also suffers from hallucinations  Sometimes, she becomes very paranoid and suspicious.  People sometimes have a hard time understand what she’s trying to say. Miyo, however, can be quite seductive or persuasive when she wants to be.  
 
 History:  Miyo was born to a German mother and a Japanese father.  Two years after her sister Marlis was born, her mother died.  After an investigation, Miyo’s father was charged for her mother’s death.  He was never convicted.  At this time, Miyo was four years old.  Miyo grew up without her mother and with an abusive childhood.  She was never hit on the face though.  Miyo tried to commit suicide many times but never succeeded.  Often, she cut her wrists or tried to take pills or tried to hang herself.  Each time however, she didn’t go through with it.  No one outside had suspected anything like this was going on in her house.  She grew up with her only friend Marlis, her sister.  It was at the age of 13 when everything changed.  Her sister Marlis was 11.  One day, her sister didn’t come home.  
 
 Miyo was totally devastated.  She didn’t know what had happened but she was convinced her father had done it.  Finally, with some help, Miyo made up her mind.  She took a knife and went to her father’s room when he was sleeping.  She let him experience the pain that he had given to her and her sister so many times before.  She made sure that he would die slowly and painfully, the way her mother and her sister must have died.  
 
 During Miyo’s trial, she told everyone her mother had convinced her to kill her father for her own safety.  In the end, Miyo was sent to an asylum where she stayed for 6 yrs until she was 19.  There at the asylum, where she was constantly given treatments, she was embraced when she was on the verge of death after going through shock treatment.  Miyo’s sire was with her only for a few months.  She disappeared leaving Miyo all by herself.  For the next 23 yrs, Miyo wandered the country meeting various kindred.  Finally, she ended up in Ravenmill.   
 
 Disciplines: Auspex, Dementation, Obfuscate
 
 Miyo’s focus has been on Dementation.  She can inflict her emotions onto another person.  These emotions are felt much more intensely by the victims.  Extreme cases are when the victim starts to hallucinate suffering from paranoia and dies from a heart attack or something of the sort.   Miyo’s second focus is Auspex.  Lastly come Obfuscate.  Miyo isn’t the greatest at Obfuscate but can hide herself in the shadows effectively when she needs to.

                There's no list per se, so choose any illness that you feel suits your character, from anxiety disorders like paranoia, manic depressions, O.C.D., schizophrenia, panic to autism, hyperactivity and borderline sucidal tendencies, to name a few (or combinations thereof).
 
 From your character's history PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and Schizophrenia (hallucinations, hearing voices, etc., not Multiple Personality) seem the obvious choices.

 Date? Oh... say 2005, other time to be decided at your leasure? wink
 
 I know a few might not like the date, because of the Gehenna novels, but quite frankly I prefer, like several other ST's I know, to simply postpone Gehenna indefinitely.
 
 Otherwise, the old WoD is barely usable.
 
 Just a small note, though. Please don't post the time of day (or night, in this particular case). It causes too many limitations on a night's duration.

 Sure thing. However seeing as no interaction between characters took place as of yet I don't think my first post can cause any problems, can it? I mean he could've been up there sparring even a few days ago from the story's standpoint :] I got you loud and clear though. No dates from now on. :]

                Judging by the number of views for this thread I think it's safe to say that there are at least a few folks interested in particpating, but are unsure how things are supposed to work and wait to see how the story develops.
 
 So we come full circle waiting for people who are waiting for us. :]
 
 Well, regardless, I believe Hellwolve's intro post is still due (hint, hint :]).

 Seriously though, while it's pretty obvious everybody's got a thousand and one things to do beside burning their eyes out in fron of their computer, if the story keeps progressing at this rate we may not live to see chapter 2

 I'm afraid this character is a leeetle too powerful. That generation is way too low, since a 6th generation vampire is pretty close to being Hell Incarnate. A 6th generation vamp that's also had eight centuries to get good at it can basically do as it pleases.
 
 A good way to see if your character is too powerful it to compare it to the NPC's. For example, the Prince is a 7th generation vampire, and over 700 as far as age is concerned. You can't be stronger that Ravenmill's Prince, can you? wink
 
 And please elabourate about this 'time and space manipulation'. Again, I suspect it'll need toning down.

 You got your generations screwed up.  The lower the generation, the more powerful the vampire.  4 gen is waaay more powerful than the 6th gen you had originally.  It really doesn't have much to do with how old the vamp is.

 To further elaborate on what Grendel said - "Generation" describes how far a character is removed from the vamp forefather Caine. Therefore a 4th generation Kindred is Caine's grand-grandchilde, while a 10th gen suckhead would be Caine's grand-grand-grand-grand-grand-grand-grand-grand-childe.
 
 Age has little to do with it, as a 11th gen vam can have centuries of unlife behind her, while a methusela could embrace a childe in 1999 and create a low generation fledgling.
 
 Concluding: the lower the generation, the fewer Kindred separate a character from the original first vampire.

 Um, one problem. You've updated your embrace/birth dates, but your history is unchanged.
 
 edit: Correction, your history is unchanged as far as the new dates are concerned. wink

 I think Roman wants to know more about that 'time and space manipulation' stuff. I can imagen how he'd want to know about that; the only ones doing that are True Brujah, and those are really rare.

                In case anybody actually cares, I've edited my char to be slightly more powerful (he was looking a little inadequate), and I added a generation just for the hell of it.  The reason is that I posted him before reading the V:tm sourcebook and Clanbook: Gangrel, so I wasn't real clear on what I could do with him.  If this is a real problem, just let me know.

 Almost, yes. I'll accept the character, no problem there, but what I now have in mind is in the History section. It now appears that your character had a mortal life-span of almost two centuries. See the problem?
 I'll just change it to 'late 14th century', and hope that you won't have a problem with it. That way, your character would have been embraced when she was relatively young, and not 200.
 
 Check your character, and tell me if it's okay from your end. If there's no problem, then your character is approved. Post your introductory post, and I'll drag you kicking and screaming into the story. :-D

 Roman K, I loved the babbling of the Malkavian primogen, very well written.
 But at the moment I am unsure of how to approach this, will the story continue like a conversation, between me and you, or will I, alone, post the comments of Dr. Steiler, because I'm not sure I could!

 I just found this forum yesterday, but took the time to read through all the posts and other character profiles.  I hope mine is okay.  
 
 Name: Lauren McRae
 Gender: Female
 Clan: Ventrue
 Sect: Camarilla
 Age/Embrace:Born 1966, Embraced in 1990
 Generation: 10th
 Appearance: Lauren tries to stay with the traditional appearance of her clan, but unfortuanatly green hospital scrubs and white labs coats don't come in designer labels, so she tries not to appear in public in her work clothes.  Out of work, she designer preppy looking suits, after all, she never knew when the opportunity might arise to climb the political ladder.  Long mahogony colored hair she kept about waiste length, but was rarely seen with it down, preferring instead to keep it in a ponytail for work, or pinned back in some time of fashion at all other times.    
 Personality: Quiet but friendly, she would rather sit and talk about problems than fight.  She goes out of her way to avoid physical confrintation if at all possible. She does a lot of political manuvuering, with the police, mayor, and various doctors, as the medical examiner, she was the one who decided what had happened to victoms of violence. She does have a few personality quirks, she can only drink from men who have killed or mutilated more than one woman.
 History: Her great-grandparents where immagrients from Scottland, and started life in America.  Her grandparents were the ones who first got involved in the different types of politics, mostly medical and law enforcent.  Her father was the administator at one of the hospitals in the city, he and her mother died shortly after she graduated from college in a car accident.  To this day no one knows what caused them to go through the gaurdrails and into the river.  Lauren graduated from college early, at only 22 she was already working in the coroners office, at at crime scenes, and was climbing to a lead position fast.  She was embraced shortly after becoming the medical examiner.  This position gave her more flexiblilty with crime scenes, and the bodies.  Helpfull if one of the kindred made a mistake, that needed covered up.
 Disciplines: Domination, Fortitude, Presence

           The good thing about working mostly in a morgue.  You can talk as much as you want, about whatever you want, and the bodies won't ever complain.

                I figured you needed someone to breathe a little death to the story so I present to you Davos Gregorian a "stick-man" Nosferatu, awaiting approval:
 
 Name: Gregorian “Dregâ€? Davos
 
 Gender: Male
 
 Clan: Nosferatu
 
 Sect: Camarilla
 
 Age\Embrace: The word in the Warrens is that “he’s been aroundâ€?
 
 Generation: 10-th
 
 Appearance: Dregs ancient-parchment-dry skin is cracked like the dirt in an old dry desert, he has very long and pointy ears and a mouthful of fangs. There’s a story in the Warrens that a young fledgling started to call Dreg hotlips, after Mick Jagger, because of Dregs fleshy lips and large mouth. Dreg didn’t mind as he is a rather absent minded Nosferatu, until he heard someone call him hotlips directly, he was amused by this and he smiled. The smile nearly made a Malkavian of the poor Nosferatu as he still has nightmares of that mouth...
 
 He dresses in earthen colours, meaning beige, brown, green and all the colourful nuances of said colours. Usually in baggy military pants or heavy-duty sailcloth pants with a woolen pullover.
 
 He wears glasses, as he was embraced nearsighted.
 
 He is of a rather short stature and bone-thin. The end-bones, like shoulders, elbows, fingers, knees and heels are elongated and distorted, making him look like a stick-man.
 
 The Nosferatu curse dried his body and cracked his skin, but jumped over the diseases for this one. He is very clean for a Nosferatu. Which means a slightly odd scent when he is present in the room. As opposed to the normally nauseating stench that makes Kindred eyes cry blood, of other Nosferatu.
 
 Dreg is also a master user of Mask of a Thousand Faces. As he has used it so often and so many times that it is almost second nature for him. Many times he even forgets to turn it off. He mostly uses a short balding man in his late twenties with glasses. It doesn’t require a very perceptive mind to imagine that it could very well be the way Dreg used to look, before his Embrace.
 
 Personality: Most Nosferatu are a practical bunch as they know how to build and make stuff work, how to get information and more importantly, how to use it. They also have a tight community of free sharing and helping amongst themselves. Dreg is nothing like that. Dreg is an introvert and unpractical as the most clumsy waif. He doesn’t even live in the Warrens, but in an abandoned part of the old waterworks sewage. Where he treasures a big library of moldy old books.
 
 Dreg studders and clears his throat compulsively when excited.
 
 If you manage to make him look up or speak, you will find out he knows many stories, urban legends and folklore as well as having something to say about the latest books and movies.
 
 As he doesn’t get out much he doesn’t know much about the layout of the city and has probably got lost in the backyard of the waterworks, on several occassions.
 
 He has also been seen fighting shadows, brandishing a wavy dagger.
 
 History: As he is such a clumsy Nosferatu, the clan would rather have him be something else or somewhere else. But someone or something is protecting Dreg. He was sent to Ravenmill 10 years ago from Europe. No one but the Primogen knows why. But Nosferatu whisperings say he was sent away because of his notoriously bad luck and all-round clumsiness.
 
 When he arrived in Ravenmill, he was assigned to help supervise the spawnpools, because he apparently had no skills to speak of. He held that assignment for a total of three nights. On the third night, The Nosferatu Primogen was the host of the Council of Primogen and as the meeting progressed, Dreg ran in screaming “It was not my fault!â€?. Well that was how the incident with the ghouled rats running amok in downtown, started.
 
 After that the Nosferatu found a nice safe place for Dreg at the local waterworks, to stay. Which just happens to be rather far from the Warrens. The Nosferatu Primogen calls upon Dreg occasionally as a courier and diplomat, as those are skills that he seems to manage somewhat.
 
 Dreg has also been seen to frequent the museum and the local Tremere Chantry, as well as the local Setite snake-temple. He is tolerated there for some strange reasons.
 
 Information on Schreck-NET places Dreg (or at least a stick-man Nosferatu) several times at the Valley of the Kings, Egypt. One account as early as the turn of the century and one as late as last year... but Dreg hasn’t left Ravenmill the last 10 years... or has he?
 
 Disciplines:
 
 Animalism:
 Feral Whispers
 Beckoning

 
 Obfuscate (high levels because of his time spent with the “snakesâ€?):
 Cloak of Shadows
 Unseen Presence
 Mask of a Thousand Faces
 Vansih from the Mind’s Eye
 Cloak the Gathering
 Soul Mask (because he has no experience with Auspex, he can only choose to not show an aura at all)

 
 Potence:
 Level 3-4, most Kindred use Potence as an agressive discipline to augment their strength to inflict more damage. Dreg has concentrated on using Potence to boost the strength in his legs, which he uses to move faster or his trademark Potence usage: jumping straight up on a building (storytellers discretion on how tall the building can be)

 Uh, Dark Angel, i've noticed you've changed your clan from Ventrue to Lasombra and now to Giovanni, but you still use obtenebration as one of your disciplines.  Have you read the clan backgrounds carefully?  Giovanni only embrace those within the Giovanni family, and I was under the impression that Necromancy was their signature discipline.                        

 

                                                  
Title: Re: Raven's Call Discussion and Kickoff
Post by: [archive] Year_of_the_Scarab on March 25, 2005, 05:27:00 PM
                Yeah, Giovanni antitribu is a bit problematic. They're as closely knit clan as any, and, like it's been said, incestous one at that - only those of the Giovanni family are Embraced, exceptions are rare as hell.
 
 On another note, the biography is now just a mess - "With her new found techniques and abilties, angel found herself in the mist of the Ventrue Elders" What are Ventrue elders doing here?
 
 Not to be nittpickish, but:
 
 She has also mastered a skill that none of her clan has. The ability to control the mind and bring fear to others. That's Presence and Dominate. Both are native to the Ventrue clan, though your character may have learned them over the course of her unlife, so I don't think this will pose a problem. Just name them for my sake, hm? :]
 
 So, make up your mind about the clan and adjust the history accordingly (the current doesn't work for a Giovanni unfortunately). And I believe Obtenebration has got to go either way, though Roman K may decide otherwise.

                And can I offer a suggestion?  I don't like telling people what to do, and this is just a suggestion so feel free to tell me to f*ck off, but maybe you want to make a char that's just a little bit...weaker, and kind of learn what you can do with it before you make a really big, really old, really powerful character.  'Cuz right now your char is an elder with like 5 disciplines rather than the usual 3, and with quite a few centuries under her belt.  That's one powerful vamp.

 Okey ill fix some stuff up, just trying to play around with it.  I really dont know which clan I want so I guess I will stick with ventrue.  Another thing umm I only said that my character was infront of the elders in the past, not the present.  Just something I ought to clear up.

 I didn't even notice that bit. Dark Angel, please edit those bits out, since they are doing nothing but:
 A. Repeating information already stated.
 and,
 B. Creating a something resembling a paradox in your history. Your whole clan has it, yet you have it while your clan doesn't? Please read about the disciplines in question.
 
 <Quote By = "Lancea Sanctum">"With her new found techniques and abilties, angel found herself in the mist of the Ventrue Elders" What are Ventrue elders doing here?
 </quote>
 
 It doesn't actually say which Ventrue elders, where, or when, so I'm letting this one slide.
 
 As for the character age, I thought about this for quite some time, and since Dark Angel's character didn't actually do much in those six-hundred years other than learning various forms of hitting things, I'm letting this slide, too. A bit grudgingly, though. Dark Angel, I believe this is where I mention something about character balance. A six-hundred year old vampire has to have some weaknesses. For now, your character is old, and is a capable fighter unarmed, or with various metallic objects of sharp nature. See to it that she doesn't exceed that.
 
 And what's this about Ventrue Antitribu? Could I please make this teensy weensy request of returning your character to being just a plain Ventrue?

 Two requests. One, please elabourate as to the nature of this particular 6th level Auspex Discipline. </quote>
 
 Telepathy. Thelepathic Communication to be exact. The 4th level discipline also called "telepathy" is actually empathy - as in reading minds - and I've had real telepathy in mind (uh, pun not intended) from the start. That means two way communication, as that is the main supernatural focus of this character.
 
 <quote by="Roman K">
 Two, I'd like that lame but elabourate justification now. wink

 
 Well you see, back when nothingness became substance and god looked down upon his creation... just kidding. The boost to Auspex is supposed to set him a bit above the common Auspex-user, since, like said above, that's his focus as far as disciplines are concerned, hence all those years under his belt - he IS well over a hundred now after all - would most likely allow him to surpass the level of competence of a regular Auspex-using-Kindred. Elaborated - check. Lameness - check. Moving on.
 
 As for Presence, it's just emphasizing the telepathic aspect - level four grants the power to Summon a person which the Kindred had contact with - as I'm sure I needn't really explain - and compliments the mind reading/thoughts projecting/ass kicking (scratch that last one, it's just for the lameness :P) abilities.
 
 Besides he's an acilla with over a century of unlife. Would you prefer if I made him attend galleries and practice sword fighting during the entire hundred years? Do you realize what a mother-of-a-sword he'd be right now? grin
 
 Ok, I'm quite satisfied with the lameness of the above. This should do. :P

 So am I. No problem with the 6th level discipline.
 
 edit: Oh, and a small note to everyone. I like correct spelling. It's this problem I have. I like to be able to read without wincing. Everyone, Word is there for a reason. Please use it, else I will be forced to correct your spelling in extremely amusing ways. This request only applies to the story thread, of cource.
 
 Now, I'm not saying not to make any mistakes at all. Just make an effort, is all that I'm asking.

 Neat-o. Hello RomanK. I guess I'll post an introduction and after that you'll write in Halton.
 
 And I'll need the name and info of the Nosferatu primogen, if you have something in mind for him. Otherwise I'll make him up myself.

                Ummm Jion, I understand the concept.
 
 What I've meant with "the warning" was that bit about the bear trap. That WAS the only line Miyo said out loud, and that's what I've referred to. The stuff written in italic the other characters know nothing of, since only you hear it (thankfully :P - just kidding).
 
 Seems that, once again, language is a barrier. Well, that and the inner voices of a Malkavian happy

 Merius Lunshil
 Embrace: 1830's.
 Clan: Nosferatu.
 Generation: 9th.
 Description: Some Kindred, especially those that have more than a couple of centuries of unlife, are said to live in the past, at least in part. In the case of Merius, it is more than just in part. Be it in the way he dresses, speaks, acts, or even walks, he is still in the Victorian Era. It is known that he was Embraced into the Nosferatu Clan in London, and has risen quickly in the loose hierarchy of the Clan, gaining recognition and prestige with the Camarilla in the proccess. It is also known, at least to those that should know, that Merius always preferred the personal approach to information gathering, be it by using the old-fashioned Nosferatu methods, or by putting on his face a mask that would best suit the occasion.
 His exact arrival date to Ravenmill is uncertain, but the fact that he was fully in charge of the Nosferatu in Ravenmill three years after the Sabbat was driven out of the city is common knowledge.
 Like all Nosferatu, he is hideously disfigured, making his features too ghastly for a normal person to look at. Yet, he still acts like the vain man he probably was before his Embrace.
 
 Here you goes. Have fun with him. Not too much fun, mind you. I think I'll be writing his part for you, and not Halton's. Methinks the Nosferatu Primogen will have a little assignment for Dreg.

 [added Mar 27 2005  8:59PM]
 
 Dark Angel, I just read your post.  Who are you talking about when you say shapeshifters?  Because if you mean werewolves we have a problem, because werewolves hate vampires and attack them on sight, and usually don't live in cities.  If you mean Gangrel then that's another thing.  This really isn't anything like Laurel K. Hamilton's novels, and I'm seeing a lot of...barrowing from that series.
 
 And I've noticed your character slips in and out of first person viewpoint, and could you please clean up your spelling and grammar?  I'm not sure if English is your first language but word processor software and dictionaries can guide you along.  I say this because I'm having trouble trying to follow what's going on in your posts.

                Oh and Roman, just to let you know, my character has no idea that he is a multiple, he just thinks that he has mood swings and black outs becasue of his vampire condition and thinks that this is common among vampires, also when another self talks within his mind, he sees that as himself thinking. Most others also do not know that he is a multiple.
 I'm not saying that I don't want Dr. Steiler knowing about my character's condition, indeed those with insight may be able to see the many minds, just that you should consider this.

                There, intro posted but I had to leave the primogen part out, for you (Roman K) otherwise I would have hit 10 000 words, easily.
 
 I know it's a tad long but I thought a moody introduction would serve my purposes best. I'll try to be briefer in the future, but as I am a tale-spinner... what do you guys think? Do I keep you attention throughout or do I lose you halfway through? I will of course bend to the will of my co-players.

 I can almost visualize Dreg sitting on that peculiar sofa in his haven. That Anja part spoke tomes on his personality (far more than the character bio, in which, to be honest, you lost me at some point). So yeah, I'd say it's well written indeed. No one messes with the bike, hehe.
 
 In general, I'm really content with the level of writing here (as I feared we'd get a lot of "SO He enters tEh bar and ShOotz 'em all dead!!1 roxxor!!! PWND!!").
 
 Three things though, all adressed to Dark Angel.
 
 One: the first-to-third person perspective shifts really make it hard to follow the story.
 
 And second: I see you've thrown some big figures into the story, that Emelia woman (apparently dead), FBI vampire agents (that's a little hard to pull of, but that's not my call), shifters (as in what?) which Roman will now have to incorporate into the story. You might want to turn it down a little, as to not complicate things for the Storyteller too much. Although that's just a thought :]
 
 Finally: fix your spelling, pleeeease.
 
 Other than that we'll be perfectly fine.
 
 peace

 I think your character is one of the more original, working in a morgue and all. It could provide some great oppurtunities for Roman K, with the dead that have been left by kindred. I think you could also do something about the body left by Jion's character, maybe the prince could ask you to somehow take care of it.

 Great intro, I really felt a little empathy for your character, how edgy and nervous he is, shows he's not just one of the other hard-as-nails vampires. Great character, and I love the bike!
 For some reason, Dreg reminds me of the one-time prince of New York(?), Calebros, for some reason, can't think why though, maybe its because he's another of the Nosferatu you sorta feel for.

 I am almost finished with the Clan Novel Anthology vol 1 - The Fall of Atlanta so I haven't met Calebros other than a couple of chapters. But indeed, they are both hideous Nosferatu, in constant pain and wishing they were someplace else and that they didn't have all the responsibilities that are bestowed upon them by others... as well as having a touch of melancholy... then there is also Daedalus from Kindred: The Embraced series with partly the same traits... and Max Schreck, the original Nosferatu... all of them contributed to Dreg. Unfortunately I am not a skilled enough writer to make Dreg stand out and apart from the others, but I am trying and hopefully I'll improve.
 
 As Lancea Sanctum wrote, I am also very impressed by the level of writing, very good work from everyone. Personal touch is very important and I think that everyone got it down good.
 
 The two Malkavians are clearly defined, was worried they would be carboncopied but Archy-bold and Jion are doing a good job of defining and personalising their lunatics.
 
 I am worried about the power-gaming in DarkAngels posts though, as Kindred FBI and dead Camarilla Negotiator, makes for huge-level politics that I myself am not sure if I can deal with (note to DarkAngel: Pretty please keep it low-key, lower key than it has been so far, please please... please).
 
 I am also sure that the Gargamel - Lars - Ass Mite league will lead to some unavoidable comic-relief situations, looking forward to it.
 
 Laurens intro I felt like reading a physicians journal, very nice! Very convincing. Very good.
 
 Now if only coding will be repaired so my quotes, bolds and italics show up properly, it would be great.
 
 Also, I am interested in how combat will be played.
 
 ...now I've done it again... huge post... sorry everyone... gotta get a grip...

 That's just it, YOU are going to handle the combat. Involve dice or anything of this kind in a forum RP and we'll all be shooting ourselves in the leg. Simply enough, make it realistic. Your characters are NOT invincible, even if they're vampires. You grasped it quite well in the post where your character was collected by the Camarilla roughs, Grendel. Keep to your abilities, and we'll all be fine.
 
 If it's combat between two PC's, then it's customary to decide the way the outcome via PM's. When I say customary, I mean it's there somewhere in the unwritten rules of Forum RP's. Right under the cofee stain, if I remember correctly.

 I'll take it into consideration.
 
 In Reply To Dark Angel
 
 I've just had an interesting time reading your post, if I may say so myself. Here's the run-down of the problems I have with your post:
 
 1) While it's possible that the 'envoy' to Angel from the Camarilla is human (even then, only a ghoul), it's unlikely. Envoys to rich/influential Cainites from the Camarilla are mostly vampires themselves. Ghouls aren't that much in-the-know most of the time, and sending a ghoul for such a thing would be a sign of lack of respect. Although a low-end Camarilla envoy would be appropriate if we don't want to get too complicated... But this isn't the main problem. I could live with this, you see. It's the rest of it that's problematic.
 
 2) Since when does the Federal Bureau of Investigation handle a simple murder?
 
 3) Since when does the FBI hire shape-shifters of any form? The only supernatural connections the FBI has in the World of Darkness, to the best of my knowledge, is the Special Branch, which is a branch of hunters, with connections to the Technocracy, which is a group of Mages who control reality, and I'm writing in italics...
 
 4) Oh spelling, oh grammar, oh capitals, oh my...
 
 5) What do Mind Control and Necromancy have in common? No, really. I actually want to know this. This could be an interesting and hitherto unknown discovery, so please enlighten me.
 
 6) In and out and out and in... Y'konw, role-playing isn't what I would normally associate with this proccess, at least not this kind of role-playing. Stick to one perspective in the future.
 
 All in all, quite a bumpy start. The last post is quite frankly unacceptable, and I will ignore it pro tem. Please edit it, or better yet write a completely new one. Writing a fully new one will be more convinient for all involved. This isn't Laurel Hamilton's world, this is the World of Darkness.

   Jordan's not a bad character to be compared to.  But since I work at a morgue in real life, I suppose it's not all that surprising.
   Sorry about the spelling, for some reason I can't get my spell check to work on this site.

           The good thing about working mostly in a morgue.  You can talk as much as you want, about whatever you want, and the bodies won't ever complain.

                It's starting to become ridiculous how much I enjoy this story. (Go to the mugshots offtopic thread to see just how much hehe)
 
 Lauren, somehow I get a strong Jordan Cavanough feeling from your character, and NOT just because she's a pathologist. And I mean this in the best way possible, since "Crossing Jordan" is one of the few series I watch. Good job. Mind your spelling though :]
 
 Roman - I believe we need a guiding hand at dealing with the Anarchs, since we should prolly learn something about O'Neil's whereabouts there, and I don't think we can come up with this by ourselves. I say this 'cos personally I have no clue as to where this confrontation should go. Unless that's been taken care of by PM or something, disregard me then :]

 Simple, but classy :] White shirt, gray creased pants, black leather shoes, light leather jacket with a fur collar - pretty much like the one the Tremere male is wearing (heavy leather armor).
 
 Something like this:
 
 
 Pardon the sketchiness, gotta run.

 ps. Yeah, I'd like to know who was driving too. I'm guessing we had a driver, since nothing else makes much sense to me now.
 
 pps. Dreg does share a few personality traits with Calebros, but it's mostly the, uh, ambiance, je ne sais quoi or however you call it that reminds me of him when I read about Dreg. A very deep character. Nicely done.

 I guess I should have said something about that, since I was the one who decided we were all driving together.  It just made sense to me that they would have to go together, and allowed us to write in those fun observations of each others characters.
 
   I kind of assumed the char's were in a (relatively nice) 4 passenger car with one of us driving.  Actually, I think that would fall to Lars or Khalid, 'cuz Dusty probably forgot how to drive if he ever knew, and Miyo is crazy and no one would trust her.
 
   Or we could just pretend this particular plot hole never existed.

                Okay, made my post. A little for everyone I hope, although not enough for the ones with the Anarchs, I admit. I just decided to write Loco's answer to you according to your reactions, instead of writing those myself.
 
 As for the car, as far as I'm concerned you had a driver. It's the only thing that makes sense, and fits Lancea Sanctum's post concerning the car perfectly.

 I'm sure Roman will be happy to let you join, providing you can contribute in a creative way, without attempting to completely alter the story. I think a Malkavian would probably be fine, many have mentioned the fact that there has been a recent influx of Malkavians. Just post a character and Roman'll let you know what he thinks.
 Oh and about the spelling, so long as you have Word or any other word processor with a spell checker, you should be fine (I think Outlook Express has one, so that could even be a last resort for spell checking), nobody has perfect spelling.
 
 Oh and having this hunter around could prove to be quite interesting.

 I have a feeling Roman wants to leave the story up to us. So the question would be: What do you think? Should they meet in his office or on the way out? Or maybe we should take this over to the private messages and work something out, unless Roman indeed has a plan. What say you Roman

                Yes the hunter will definitly spice things up.  I didn't think I would need to get rid of that body so soon, other that to a funeral home, but I was wrong.   It least cremating it was cleaner and neater than blowing up my morgue.  I think Lauren has a cleaner fetish, it would kill her to clean up that kind of mess.  lol.

                How do disciplines work versus higher, lower or equal generation kindred?  For instance, when Miyo works her Dementation on everyone in the back room of the Last Round, how will it affect Lars and Khalid (who are lower gen), Dusty (equal), and anyone in the room with a higher generation?

 Just met the man and already plotting his downfall? Ventrue indeed.
 
 As for Dementation affecting the Kindred gathered in that room - hard to say. A low generation doesn't make a Kindred immune to the effects of Dementation (unlike, ie. Dominate), but a high Humanity as well as Willpower may. It also depends on what particular discipline Miyo used (I'm guessing "Passion" or a slight alteration of "Voice of Madness" perhaps?).
 
 However since we ditched all dice rolls altogether and assume disciplines just work I guess it's Roman's call to decide to what degree the gathered individuals will be affected.

                Roman K:
 "Overdoing it? How?"
 
 Well, Lars HAS been reading just about everybody’s mind sofar, just making sure it doesn‘t bug you with the semi-permanently active discipline... Our PnP ST has the habit of hiting you over the head with overabused disciplines... wait, why am I arguing? You already said it was ok... *cough cough* moving on.
 
 Roman K:
 "You've just wasted a fair whack of blood, if I'm any judge."
 
 Blood? Au contraire, not a single blood point as of yet. What I may have been spending is the occasional Willpower point, but Auspex requires a roll, no bloodcost (3rd Ed... not too keen on the previous WoD editions) UNLESS the ST decides othwerwise of course, I’ll adapt then. Just let me know if so, before I unknowingly overauspex myself into Frenzy :]
 
 Roman K:
 "If you have the time to do some more sketching, that is. Your work is exceptional."
 
 Gracias. Doing a sketch takes about ten minutes in total, so time shouldn't be an issue. PM me if you have anything particular in mind.

                Strike that about the post. Enough is enough. Lauren, you just got a disposable side-kick. He did his role quite well.
 
 Get posting, people.

                I never played any rpg before, and I am not sure if/how frequently I am going to be able to post, but I always had some interest in the vampire the masquerade universe, and id plan to try to learn as I go.
 
 This is my idea for a character:
 I’m waiting for approval before posting on the story.
 
 Blake
 
 Clan: Toreador
 
 Sect: Independent
 
 Embrace: Sometime in the late 1970s
 
 Generation: 8th
 
 Appearance:
 
 
 
 Tall, pale skinned, brown hair, bright green eyes (close to yellow). Athletic body.
 Has a scar across his left eye, acquired before his embrace in a car accident and a toreador clan symbol tattooed on his right shoulder.
 Dressed always in dark stylish garments, attractive fellow.
 
 History: A talented guitar player of some fame, with a hothead. Easy to anger, Blake had soon to learn to defend himself. He practiced boxe and can hold his own well in a hand-to-hand combat.  
 Blake was embraced in the late 70´s by an attractive and mysterious toreador women called Brianna Xavier and abandoned after, he was forced to figure out his new reality on his own account.
 He managed to keep some of his family wealth and possessions and become somewhat a patron of arts.
 
 Disciplines: Auspex (4), Celerity (6), Presence (3+), with an emphasis on Celerity, which he usually uses in combat and if a really needed retreat is needed.
 
 Personality and Traits: Blake can be a charming and likable guy, unless his temper get in the way. An appreciator of beauty, music and arts, with a soft spot for women, he is very passionate and enthusiastic of humanity advances and has somewhat taken the role of its protector. Blake never killed an innocent human, and under the excuse of upholding the masquerade, he has been known to take action against other vampires if he fell they are treating humans cruelly. Prone to take action on his own and with some fame as a trouble-maker, he usually tries to keep himself from calling attention, which usually fails, and he ends up with more trouble than he could ask for.
 Blake tries to stay away from kindred politics, he might do not know much about it, but he knows kindred are always scheming.
 A bit of paranoid, he got fairly confident with a katana that he usually carries around, also got reasonably good at aiming with a berretta pistol he keep concealed (he keeps an extra clip of silver bullets in case any werewolves come by).
 
 Background: Blake came to Ravenmill to accompany his ghoul, a talented and young painter, by the name of Jenny Simmons, who is working on a mural at the Melbourne Museum.
 He came to the industrial area in an attempt to remain undetected by the city kindred.

                Whilst writing for the story, I realised that sometimes what I write can be a little confusing, having Jake in first person, but the other personalities in third makes reading it a little difficult at times. I have tried writing purely in third person, but I can't get as many 'we' and 'us' references in and the confusion of being a multiple isn't conveyed quite so well. The point of this is that I apologise if some of the things I write get a little confusing, but its all in the name of story, so I hope I can be forgiven!
 
 Well on another note, I decided I might dabble in the colouring of Halton, so here it is:
 (Please note this is the first time I've ever done this sort of thing, so it's not perfect, I just thought you people might want to see it.)

 I've personally never been confused about your writing, Archy, I've always understood why you used the different perspectives.  You seem to have one personality that's a sort of narrator (Prodigy?) and then you switch to first person when you're using the POV of an individual personality.  Correct, or am I actually confused?
 
 I like the coloring, too.

 No need to apologise, Archy. I enjoy your writing, and would have it no other way.
 
 You did good with the colouring, too. I'll take it. I'll still keep the original sketch, so if anyone wants to give it another try let me know and I'll send it to you.

 Your writing is clear and defined to me. No explanations necessary I believe.
 
 The coloring's apropriate.

 Uh, I think that's wrong. The personality written in first person is Jake, all the others are narrated in third person. If I'm wrong than scratch the first sentence in this post :]

 Thanks. Done.
 I wanted to get a character somewhat like the Anne Rice’s "The Vampire Lestat", so toreador was a natural choice, but I felt it alone wouldn’t fit well in an action rpg, so I gave it a little 'dark side´, hot temper and violent prone, so he could still kick some ass. Although he can hold his own, the character isn’t the killing machine he think he is wink
 Btw, excuse in advance for any grammar errors, english isn’t my first language.

                Yeh, Lancea's right about my writing, Jake is in first person, with an occasional switch with reference to third when another personality is in full control or there is a changeover of personalitites. It gets to be quite difficult to write the way I do (why the hell did I have to go with multiple personalitites?!).
 
 And glad you like the colouring people.

 Welcome to the group killer.   What is your first language if you don't mind me asking?
 
 And just thought this was funny so thought I'd share.  My daughter has decided she's a vampire (she's five, and watched a vamp movie at grandma's house)  So now she's running around the house with a pink blanket tied around her neck singing I want to drink your blood.  I wonder if this is a normal kid phase.... oh well, just thought ya'll would get a laugh out of it.
 
 Now for me to go post.

 Hmm, this is very disturbing... I think you must have serious talk with your daughter and explain to her... that a vampire would never be caught dead wearing a PINK cape! I mean, I am all for childish imagination and all, but still a PINK cape... that is just... disturbing...

                I actually did point that out, but she very firmly pointed out "but I'm a princess vampire, and it corbinates with my clothes"  lol, I'm just glad she hasn't bitten anyone yet.  At least its better than last month, she was convinced that her baby cousin was a werewolf.
 
 
 Oh, almost forgot, do we have a drawing or picture for our hunter?  If not I found a few that might work, for him, or for other characters that need a picture.

                I'm an Engerlish person through and through and I must comment that everyone has great writing skills considering its not their first language. Us English are lazy buggers and just expect everyone to learn our language and know it perfectly, so far the plan's working great! I also studied French 2 years ago (but have promptly forgotten everything through lack of use) and German (very vaguely) more than 5 years ago (and have forgotten all but the odd words). Again, us English are lazy!

                Since we're so close to the mexican border, most people around here have learned enough spanish to get by.   That is correct, if you couldn't tell by the ya'lls, we have a southern American in the group.  So please no United States bashing...

                Well, apparently I was confused about your writing, Archy.  Or I didn't read carefully enough.  Either way, sorry.
 
 I speak English only 'cuz my high school German teacher was a b*tch and my Spanish prof was really hot and I couldn't focus on what she was saying.  (I have ADD by the way)  I thought about taking Lakota a few times, but then I got distracted by something.  (did I mention the ADD?)

                A kid playing she is a vampire is kind of cute, but I have to agree with montnoir, the pink cape is mostly disturbing.
  kidding.
 My first language is portuguese, since I am brazilian, I also know english and some spanish...but I don’t like to brag
 
 Btw Lauren, you wont be upset if my character shows up at your confrontation with the hunter right? Roman K? I think he was too outside the story, so I thought it might be neat if he "accidentally" found himself in the theater.

 Technically my first language is Russian, but since I can barely write in it these days I'd say Hebrew wins the title. I live in Israel, so that's understandable.
 
 Other than that, I know English, and while I did study French at one point, I forgot most of it by now.

                Polish, German, English, in that order.
 
 While I do know some Russian (it's kinda similar to Polish in some aspects), I can't write or read it for shit. The Russian written word remains black magic to me. What cracks me up though is how Americans write Russian words :]. Eh, eh? Gawarishch pay Roosky Tovarisch? Hee hee.

                Ok, what I am going to tell you remains on this board and it is only between us. M'kay?
 
 I have a romanian father and swedish mother. So those are my first languages. Romanian - a latin grammar, russian wording based language and swedish - a nordic grammar, germanic wording based language. English I've learned from books and movies. As a child in communist Romania I learned russian. But we moved to better greener places, so I forgot everything that had with russian to do. Minya zavut montnoir, or something like that and MUT, is about everything I remember.
 Then I learned some german and some italian as those 2 languages lie very close to romanian and swedish, which came very easily to me and it helps that I maintain german and italian friends.
 
 For the future I plan on learning at least an asian language and spanish ...and that's about it.

 Anyway, in regards to the pic of the hunter you asked about earlier, we've talked about it with Roman and I've already sent him a sketch, so that one's taken care of (if R approves it, that is).
 
 Oh, lookie here, Hellwolve escaped the Sabbat siege and is back with us. Heh. Just kidding, no stabs intended.

 ps. Roman, now I remember why I asked about the current date in the story (quick one aren't I?). Since we have a childe of Haquim in the coterie, I'd like to know if we're before or after the breaking of the Warlock curse by al-Ashrad? In other words, are the Assamites still unable to drink Kindred blood?

                montnoir, is it possible that you could be a bit less liberal with the facial changes that Jake has, they're meant to be subtle, and only the most observant can notice (Dr. Steiler only just noticed it), I don't mind you occasionaly noticing a slight change, but don't make the changes be that obvious.
 I'm sorry to moan so much, please slap me round the face if you think its a little pathetic.

 No prob, now that I know. I just figured he had a different speech pattern, thought pattern and also different faces for his personalities. I didn't know he was so subtle. Anyway, from now on, no more face-change, promise... but if it's ok with you, I'll leave the last post as it is... accredit it to Dreg's love of details and the bad vibes he gets in the institute.

                The post is fine, I don't mind if you leave it like that. He does have slight changes in facial features, I described some of them in a conversation with dr. Steiler, his voice also changes, but I think I've only mentioned a slight deepening before. The way he thinks is what changes the most, after all, they may as well be completely different minds. I've done a little reading on multiple personalities and the way it was described, the changes are subtle and only noticed by the observant or those that study them in depth, it also seems as if the personalities learn to blend better and try not to change too much. I wanted the multiple personalities to be an advantage, whereby others were suspicious of him, but couldn't think what it was that unnerved them, then certain persoanlities would use this control to their advantage.

                Grendel made a mighty fine post, filled with possible plot-threads, awaiting Lanceas response to that one.
 
 As for my bits, I am not quite satisfied with my latest writing as it seems more like scribbled down, meshed together thoughts and ideas, rather than actual writing, but I think it, kind of, fits in the institute. I'll try writing in daytime with coffee in my blood, maybe that's going to make me more cohesive..

 Keeping Hellwolve's concerns about not keeping up in mind, I am currently waiting for his post first, which reportedly is underway.
 
 I do hope though that over-two-week-intervals between posts are not going to become a habit.
 
 Meanwhile, two things.
 
 First, Dark Angel, I do believe you've been around here once or twice, are you going to fix your post(s)?
 
 Secondly, Killer, fix your mishuggah spelling.

 Oh and Killer, just put your posts in Word, or any other word processor with an English spell checker, I'm sure you'll be able to get rid of most (in not all) of you spelling errors.

                Sorry guys. My english isn’t that bad…honest! I learned english on my own (movies, books, tv and games). I never really cared for the classes I had in school.
 The fact that I am usually half at sleep when I manage to post, the fact that I typed faster than I should, and that I didn’t wrote anything in english over an year doesn’t helped at all. Rest assured they are more typos than bad spelling from my part.
 Still, that’s no excuse! I noticed several mistakes I usually don’t make.
  I am truly ashamed.
 
 I will be more careful and try to not let it happen again. I checked all my previous posts and I believe I got all the problems (or at least most of them) fixed.
 
 I will wait for Lauren and Roman to resume their stories to continue on my part. Hopefully it will be free of the spelling problem.

                Well, Angel has lingered around a few times, so I thought I'd ask.
 
 The spelling isn't that terrible, Killer, but since you can in fact do better - do so. Errare humanum est, but still... you know :] I'd just advise to read through your whole post before submiting. Works for me.
 
 I assumed Dusty knows little or nothing about Setites, Grendel, hence the little speech. It fills a gap, and still leaves a window for Hellwolve and Jion by not progressing the story much (since when is that a good thing, eh?). Should Dusty know all of that already, just tell me to shut up (in the story :]) or something.

 Yeah, that was the point of him asking, Dusty's completely ignorant...Of vampire clans, that is. wink  
 
 I was worried about progressing the story, too, but I wanted to answer that question from Lars, so I kept my post short and tried to focus only on that question.  Hopefully this doesn't interfere with Hellwolve or Jion's posts.

 Err, no. No we're not. That's a pretty bad idea that could put us 'on hold' for a long time to come. No one has to roleplay Jion's character instead of Jion, just mention the character from time to time, if only to note that she is still there. If someone wants to write Jion's character doing something, then try to write something that agrees with the character as Jion roleplayed her as much as possible.
 
 If all else fails I'll mention her in my own posts.

 Get used to it, Neonate. Being Toreador means facing critique nigh constantly. Usually from other Toreador :]
 
 Seriously though I wasn't rubbing it in, twas just a pointer. You did it again by the way ("BAVO!" hee hee), but don't worry, happens to everyone (I misspelled "Setites" about three times recently, and even after correcting the post it's still wrong in one place, sigh).
 
 On another note I'm really curious how your characters will deal with the current situation WITHOUT killing that hunter now. Or trying to, anyway. :evil grin:

                Ok killer, you might want to relook at your posts.  It was clearly stated that the theatre was empty in both mine and Roman's posts, and Lauren and the others would have noticed him.  Second, he wouldn't be able to tell that Lauren was kindred, unless he knew who she was, she passes for human.   Plus, if he knew what Victor and Lauren were, he should have been able to tell that Alex was a hunter.

 Huh? Not necessarily. Perhaps the hunter would, but he may have been to focused on trailing Lauren (Lauren the vampire).  
 
 <quote by="Lauren">Second, he wouldn't be able to tell that Lauren was kindred

 
 Yes he would. Auspex. Which doesn't automatically mean he'd know what the mortal is, since hunters auras usually become easily distinguishable only when they actually use Numina (their "discipline" of a sort) so it's not easy to spot one for an unexperienced Auspex user.

 Actually, there are several ways of solving those problems, Lauren. Here's how I saw it.
 
 "It was clearly stated that the theatre was empty in both mine and Roman's posts, and Lauren and the others would have noticed him." - As far as I'm concerned, Killer's character entered from some rooftop access after Alex was on his way out. The rest might have been conclutions his char could have reached. That's a bit far fetched, but possible.
 
 "Second, he wouldn't be able to tell that Lauren was kindred, unless he knew who she was, she passes for human. Plus, if he knew what Victor and Lauren were, he should have been able to tell that Alex was a hunter." - Auspex. While Killer didn't state he used Auspex, I pretend that he did. Makes it easier for me. wink
 
 edit: Most of what I said was mentioned by Lancea a moment before I posted. Crossposts are fun, aren't they? Anyway, I agree with Lancea's insights.

                I can see your point, but if he entered from entered from the rooftop after Alex exited, then he wouldn't really know that there was a setup for Alex, because he wouldn't have seen the stage being set, for all he knew it would be one kindred attacking another and a human just stumbling across it.  There are kindred that have to drink kindred blood, so as far as killer would know that would be the case.

 Just let me know if I bored someone into coma (when you wake up from it that is).

 Imagine the music being muffled a little, a staccato of voices and cell phones mixing with it, the occasional curse or name shouted over your ear, and Voila! Instant In-Front-Of-The-Club Feel :]

 Although I am not as familiar with the vampire the masquerade universe as everyone else here might be, I believe I read somewhere that vampires could tell if they were in presence of another…
 Thinking about it again, it might have been from vampire the requiem universe. Sorry.

Lauren posted:

 As I tried to show on my character profile, he wasn’t  supposed to know very much about kindred ways, he was never instructed by his sire, and any contacts he would had with other vampires, either they would had tried to manipulate or kill him. He would not have many allies between kindred.
 I believed that as the hunter had several weapons, and a stake belt, he would know he was facing vampires. Also I figured that my character would see them (Lauren and Victor) partially set the stage for a trap if he was hiding above them, still he wouldn’t had any idea of what was going on, and that hunters existed. I tried to express his confusion on my post.

 But to the meritum - what makes me post this is your (Killer) statement about not being sure how things work in the World of Darkness. Do read up, please. In other case we'll be struggling with such misunderstandings as the above on a regular basis.

                I will try to make a post soon. Unfortunatly, it'll be Khalid leaving. I can't put enough time in creating posts that fit my own (high) standard, and therefor, I'd rather not post at all. My apolagies.

 Oh yeah, just a quick note - I recommend having Rik Shaffer's "Original Vesuvius Theme" playing in the background, while reading that in-front-of-the-club post.
 
   Darn, I was hearing AC/DC Back In Black playing.  lol

 Sad to see you going Hellwolve, but if you just can't find the time, then that's fine.
 
 On that note, I'd like to say that I'm sorry I haven't posted recently, as some of you may know (from the Complaint thread!) I've had a lot of coursework deadlines to meet and so have been a little too busy to keep a track of the story and post my next installment, I've not been holding anyone up so I don't think it's too bad. I've got a lot less work now, so I'll start writing and it should be up within a few days. So sorry if anyone was anticipating my post.

                Yep. Tis a shame you decided to write Khalid out entirely, Hell'. But if you know you'll have no time to post at all, then I suppose that's fair. Been nice while it lasted.
 
 On the bright side, good to see Jion managed to find a moment to post. Plus I'm looking forward to your bit, Archy.
 
 On another note, I'd like to write a few words about hunters in the WoD, in regards to the one in the story.
 
 Bloodlines simplified and weakened them quite a bit. The WoD version is pretty much a walking-vampire-disposal-automaton. Don't think "generic hunter-gunman outside the Society building in Bloodlines". Think "beefed up Grunfeld Bach, with way more stopping power and holiness about him".
 
 My point is - trying to reason with a hunter is futile. He won't believe a word you say, and won't think twice about killing you. And he'll most likely succeed. No, seriously, that weak fragile human will dust a fledgling vamp sooner than you can count your generations back to Caine.
 
 Not intending to cramp nobody's style, just a word of warning for future reference. :]

                So next time (if) I see him I should kill him? I don’t know if I am allowed to kill the hunter, so I choose to take him down and go with something like a “I am not an animal, my name is Loganâ€? routine (If someone doesn’t know, Logan is Wolverine from marvel comics).
 Although I think my character wouldn’t know a hunter won’t listen to him, after all he supposedly never met a hunter before. I think it worked ok for my character exit, and Lauren alternate plan could continue…that is if Roman decides the police gets the hunter.
 I felt bad for messing with her story back there, sorry Lauren.
 Could I kill the hunter if I see him again?

 I think he means more like your going to have REAL trouble killing the hunter, a hunter (especially one with true faith) is immensely powerful and could take a (high generation) vampire down easily. The problem was that you tried to reason with the vampire and its unlikely a hunter would ever listen to the 'spawn of satan' no matter how 'good' they are. I think another problem was that you knocked the hunter down, getting too close would cause the vampire to be burned by his faith, similar to the effect from the sun. Just try to act more afraid when you come in contact with a hunter and you should probably run immediately.

                Archy's right. Exactly what I meant. Next time you see him, Killer... run.
 
 Seriously though, If you weren't using Celerity while knocking him down I'd be arguing that your character is toast by now.
 
 An excerpt from Clanbook: Toreador on hunters, as told by Ferdinand Chu, ancilla:
 
 "Annabelle out in Vancouver managed to capture one. She overwhelmed him with Presence, fucked his brains out, blood boud him - the whole nine yards. He should have been willing to kill or die for her pleasure, and it seemed like he was. She invited me to take a look and talk to him myself. Unfortunately, before I could get there, all hell broke loose.
 
 Annabelle was going to do some negotiating with a local anarch's ghoul. She didn't trust the ghoul, so she told her "pet hunter" to be alert and watch out for treachery. He nodded, and it seemed like he wanted nothing more than to serve and protect.
 
 Now, Annabelle was old and cunning enough that no mortal ship-rigger could fool her with a simple lie, understand me? But as soon as the ghould walked in the hunter blinked, shook himself, and attacked her. He was armed with nothing but a candlestick, but the candlestick set her clothes on fire when he hit her.
 
 So in about thirty seconds, this blood bound human had shaken off the Presence of an eight-generation Toreador and killed her with a single blow."
 
 So I guess my point is: fear the hunter :]

                Ok, I think I got the idea now. I was under the impression that the hunter was something like the nightstalkers on Blade 3. Had no idea hunters were terminators with a holy than thou attitude. I am rewriting my post to better accommodate those concepts. If a kindred is burned only by touching a hunter, it surely means I have to rewrite!
 As I said in my first post, I am trying to learn as I go.
 Thanks.

 Well, that's the only thing that makes sense, if you ask me. If I only have time to write short posts like this one (e.g. only a few sentences) it makes little sense to me that I keep him in; I'd only put in "And Khalid followed, dusted one of the Vampire Hunters." etc. ;-)

 I sent Roman a message last week, requesting some information that would progress my story, but I'm yet to receive a reply, which suggests he hasn't been on the site sonce the middle of last week.

 As far as killing the hunter goes, it's no for now. You can try, and you can even hurt him, but he's not exactly a Care-Bear. Hurt him, and he'll hurt right back. Not all hunters in the WoD are as powerful as Alex, but he's very good and what he does, and don't forget the True Faith. So basically, while you might be able to kill other hunters, Alex is a big no-no, at least for now. I've got plans for this one.
 
 In Reply To #216
 
 Actually, no. I've got my finals more than a month away, so that's alright for now. Quite frankly, my connection at home is currently non-existent, and since it's Passover right now I spend most of my time at home. I'm at the university right now because I have five assignments to finish, and I can't do them all by myself. You lot are the bright side of the day, actually.

 If you, I or someone else can think of a way for me to catch up without much difficulty, and if I'll find time, I'll certainly reconsider. I don't see either hapening anytime soon, so that's why I considerd leaving in the first place.
 
 It's either that, or I and the rest of the Coterie will have to do with a post once or twice a week.

 Yep, that's the code errors for you. I'd link to the thread where I went out of my way to confront it along with the matrix ad (which, I may mention, is no longer here - thanks to who? Hm? Eh?), but since links wouldn't work... :]

 I really don't think you need to react to everything that happens in the story (as in flashback to where your last post ended, and give Khalid's take on all the events), that'd be taxing, agreed. I don't think any of us could pull that off, not to mention the posts would be a few thousand words each 8).
 
 A post once a week is enough (more than enough at the current speed, actually *cough cough*), and should more intense situations present themselves we'll (probably meaning "I'll" grin ) just give you a buzz via PM or something and you'll contribute if you find a free moment. How's that sound?

 I am trying to show my character paranoid/crazy tendencies in my last post, but I think revealing the contents of the package would spoil the surprise. My character won’t use it unless he is facing certain death although. I hope it wont come to that.

 Thinking about it for a bit, I'd say sixty or so, at least at the moment. That's just the official number, of cource.

                Hello
 
 I'm still getting my post together but will post so o very soon.  =)
 
 Just wondering, would anybody like to draw a picture of Miyo?  I can't draw at all.  I have a nice picture of her in my mind, but unfortunately, its just going to stay there.

                OK, since Roman K said there was still a chance of joining in, here's the mad Miss Dane. She's just visiting, so she won't be causing too much trouble - unless someone tries messing with her! It also gives her a plausible reason why she's coming into this quite late.
 
 Ariana Dane
 Sex: female
 Clan: Tremere
 Sect: Camarilla
 Age: over 100 (only she knows exactly and she won’t ever tell her age; no-one even knows when her birthday is!)
 Generation: 7th or 8th (As far as she knows anyway – she’s diablerised a few since then!)
 Sire: George
 Disciplines: (in the order she uses most): Thaumaturgy, Vicissitude, Dominate, Celerity, Auspex, Presence
 
 (Yeah, I know that’s a lot, but she has some whopping weaknesses too that balance her out.)
 
 
 Appearance: Average height, slim and elegant, with long, tapered fingers. Very white skin and long black hair which she often wears piled up and very dark brown, almost black eyes. Always wears dark colours or black, and always the finest clothing. Fond of gold jewellery, one of her few concessions to modern fashion being a gold stud in her nose. Because of her appearance and expensive tastes, younger Kindred sometimes mistake her for a Ventrue or Toreador. She has recently enhanced her appearance with subtle use of Vicissitude.
 
 Personality: Calm, persuasive and cultured – at least outward appearances suggest so. To those who don’t know her, she seems coldly aloof and rather austere, but appearances are deceptive; she actually has a dangerously hot-headed and volatile temper that makes her careless. Born and raised in the latter half of the 19th century, into a well-to-do family, she is well educated and also a classically trained pianist. She still prefers classical music over more modern stuff, though she likes to keep as up to date as she can. She uses her music and love of the arts to cling to her former humanity, though as she ages, she finds this harder to keep up to and is prone to becoming hopelessly enthralled by feeding. Ariana can barely remember what it was like to be mortal anymore, using her cultured elegance as a thin façade behind which she hides her true nature. She tries to maintain a well-fed state to avoid frenzy, which she is alarmingly prone to. She also prefers to take her ‘food’ as fresh as possible, straight from the veins – as she will often tell other Kindred, ‘I like to bite!’
 
 
 
 She embraces younger men who help to keep her up to date with the modern world, but she only does this when she is 100% certain of the man’s arcane potential and total loyalty to her and the Tremere clan. She is VERY choosy and because of this, she is usually granted permission to sire others. Her ghouls are always male and many are later embraced by her into the clan if they show arcane aptitude, and she will drink only from male victims; sometimes she has had more than one ghoul beholden to her at a time. She would never consider drinking from women or animals. She is very proud, and especially so now that a fellow Tremere is the prince! She is slyly manipulative and can be very aggressive in the pursuit of both her clan’s and her own personal goals.
 
 She always insists her new childer drink from her (she loves blood-sharing!) as soon as they awaken into their new life, thus passing on some of her own power to them, and she will sit a vigil over each one until they wake. She is one of only a few women in the Tremere clan and is a very adept sorceress, wielding her blood-sorcery with deadly precision. She is also very fond of blood-sharing for pleasure, even been known to enjoy mortal males (she does a lot of her feeding in this manner!), being deliciously decadent behind closed doors! She doesn’t view being dead as a handicap to enjoying her existence, instead she considers it an advantage! Her embracing is almost always done this way. She is also devoted to her Malkavian lover, Mephisto, who has been her guide and support through the darkest moments of her insanity.
 
 She is totally devoted to her clan and the furthering of her arcane arts, which she then teaches to her apprentices, and has always been a loyal Camarilla member. Winter is her favourite time of year – as the nights are longer! She has been chased down several times by vampire hunters and knows they are just waiting for her next slip-up. She likes to travel when the opportunity occurs, hence her arrival here.
 
 She has a few quirks unique to her, including having no reflection, like a Lasombra; this means she cannot be captured on film either, and as a result has a few portraits of herself dotted around her rooms to remind herself what she looks like, often commissioning new ones from Toreador friends with artistic skills. She relies on her ghoul or childer to make sure she always looks her best! Because of her tendency to blood-bind them, they may also share some of her flaws and quirks. She does not know why this is, and could be linked to something one of her grand-sires once did. She has since been introduced to digital cameras which fascinate her for the obvious reason!
 
 Any vampires with Auspex abilities can see her darkest secrets – her aura is the tell-tale black of one who has diablerised other vampires. No-one is sure exactly of the situation that brought this about as she refuses to talk about it, but it serves to make all those around her that much more distrustful and wary of her.
 
 Since events detailed in Twilight Sonata (where she first appeared), Ariana is quite insane, in a dark and sinister way. She acquired Vicissitude through the blood of her former ghoul and now youngest childe, Solomon Kar, passed it through blood-sharing to about half the Tremere. She also diablerised the childe of Brujah Primogen, Corick, while in the blood-frenzy, and the following night did the same to Razvan, the Tzimisce Bishop of Twilight’s Sabbat, but this time under perfect control and by her own choice! She is now incurably mad, stuck with the chirpy, taunting voice of Razvan in her head; his presence there had a benefit though – he has taught her how to use her Vicissitude with a skill that matches a Tzimisce!
 
 Most Kindred fear her for the obvious reasons, she’s mad, powerful and a diablerist on top of all that. Known by the vampire hunters as the ‘London Witch’ and by Twilight’s Kindred population as the ‘Black Dane’, she is not to be trifled with.
 
 I hope this meets with approval while I read up on the story! Still can't believe I'd missed this, I love this sort of RP!

 Augustus Wesley perchance? Great! Once I'm done reading through the story, I'll have her delivered to the Tremere Chantry (I assume there is one), then see about her going to see the Prince. Like Wesley did, she travels in a box as she has severe daytime problems!
 
 If it is Wesley, Razvan's met him! Razvan is a part of Ariana now, so it should be rather fun!

 Great! I love getting graphic with it! Hellwolve can vouch for this! I think some of my pics were creeping people out, especially when I started getting kinky with it! wink
 
 Is there anything I should know about the Tremere regent here, or can I just make something up on the fly as I go along? Being a Tremere of course, the 'Black Dane' will be residing there while she's in town.

                The Regent's been mentioned by a few characters a couple of times in the story, as you've probably read already (if you did not then you still have 6 pages of the story and 16 pages of the disscussion to get through, hehe). The fact he's gone AWOL is the only thing known to most.
 
 As for going graphic - I've personally come to absolutely loathe Vicisstude ever since the Eye of Hazimel thingy. :shrug: You did ask. Don't let me stop you though.
 
 Anyway.
 
 I have to say, Adriano Giovanni takes the CUP ("Coolest Undead Person") spot from Halton as far as I'm concerned. Funkiest mafiozo-turned-vampire up to date :]
 
 Jion, I can be of some assistance with the picture, if a sketch suits you. PM me with the datails (and I mean any single detail one can think of happy ).

 Ahh, right. I'd better check those over again then - read the whole thing this afternoon while cuddling my ill cat! If he's missing, she'll have to talk to whoever's in charge in his absence. happy
 
 Eye of Hazimel thingy? I'm not familiar with that. I mentioned the flesh thing as Ariana can get quite inventive and sadistic with it!

                Eye of Hazimel came up in the Clan Novel saga.
 
 Fear the spoiler, incoming!
 
 A mortal scultptor Embraced by a Tremere antitribu, was led to believe himself Toreador, went insane and killed a lot of people, while equipped with the eye of a 4th gen vamp.
 
 The whole story actually stretches over the entire series, so the above explanation is *beyond* brief.
 
 peace
 
 ps. There really isn't *much* info on the warlock regent in the story, so if you did read it there's no need to re-read it only for the few lines.

 Ahh, you needn't worry too much - Ariana has only reached the 4th level of Vicissitude thus far and restricts it mostly to rearranging people's faces or bodies if they are daft enough to get near enough for her to touch them while she's pissed off! I'm actually quite a noob to the WoD universe, discovering it only when I bought Bloodlines, though I make up for my noobness with my vast knowledge of vampire lore.
 
 Ahh, yes - found the reference to the missing Tremere regent. I'll have her talking to another elder instead then! She's an elder in her own right in the chantry at home. happy

                Great to see you giving this a go AlienSlof, it will be interesting to see Ariana involved in the story and I'm looking forward (should I be?) to seeing you use Vicissitude in the story.
 
 Well I've finally got around to posting my part of the story, it's quite long, but I'm not sure about the quality, it was a bit rushed y'see. I should have split it into two posts, but I thought I needed to play catch up.

 I enjoyed it! Gotta love totally loopy Malkavians! I should have Ariana's first intro post up soon once I've checked it over and made sure the details are right. Once someone rubs this woman up the wrong way, I hope she won't disappoint with the fleshcrafting!
 
 And that's my first Ariana Dane post up. Rather a longish one, but I have a tendency to ramble on quite a bit!

                Welcome Slof.
 Just a note, Halton and the prince are in his chamber interviewing Blake, I am not sure, but as you mentioned Ariana was sent to the prince by Halton, it may create a paradox at this point…

 Good. I had this idea from playing bloodlines, when I meet Pisha. My first instinct was to kill her for eating humans, that’s evil. But she did a good point of defending herself. She “wasn’tâ€? being evil; she was doing what she needed in order to survive.
 
 Pisha´s words (somewhat):
 "You drink blood, yes? I suppose you call yourself damned. What if I need to eat flesh to sustain myself, what would you called it? Twice damned?...
 And after you kill me, you will endure a crusade to destroy all of those who don’t fit in your idea of right?â€?
 
 I think one who is full of righteousness, but its not so righteous himself, would become a little crazy after a while, with a bit of twisted sense of right and wrong, and become paranoid. That is the idea I was trying to get.

                Grendel, Jion, Hellwolve.
 
 After our bussiness with Adriano is concluded, I would ask that whoever takes the kindred out of the club doesn't put them into the car right away. Basically I've got a little episode in mind, taking place while the group is walking towards the parked car.
 
 So if you folks aren't averse to a little complication, and of course if you don't mind Roman, I'd ask that the group be left somewhere at the entrance to the club.
 
 peace
 
 ps. Like that last post a lot, Archy. I'm actually looking forward to your and Jion's characters meeting. That can't go wrong :]

 I've sorted the bit with the Prince too, so as she's come in, she's noticed Blake talking to him, and looked him up and down a bit, and now waiting patiently for her turn!

 I find it a bit too hard to follow - I prefer this kind of story-telling where I can really flex my writing muscles. Ariana is very challenging to RP - although there is a lot of me in her, there's also a lot of her that isn't me, and that's the tough bit!

                I think she may have to pick the lock or something if Monitor isn't back soon.
 
   And since most thought my daughter the vampire was funny, an update on the little monsters, lol.  That and I'm a very proud mommy.   My son's final grades just came out for the year (he's seven) all A's again!  And my daughter graduates from pre-k next week and made it all year without getting suspended! (a bit of a tom boy, she likes to fight.)  Like I said proud mommy...now back to the story!
 
 Almost forgot, she's no longer convinced she's a vampire, this week, she's decided she's a bat.

 Oh, yes, that black aura is diablerie alright! Blake will be able to see that no problem! Ariana at this point has done the deed 4 times, 3 times while in frenzy and one in cold blood and perfect control (Razvan, the Tzimisce in her head!). happy
 
 On the surface she seems to still hate herself for it, but deep down, she revels in it. Naughty girl!

                Greetings all.
 
 Few things:
 
 1. disregard that shtick about "idea for an episode in front of the club" from my previous post, neither did it make sense in the long run, nor do I have the time to do it.
 
 2. it'll prolly be a while until I get around to post again, sorry for the delay in advance. I'll try to reply to Adriano ASAP, to avoid holding everyone down (is it just me, or did that just sound a lot like the couple last posts from Hellwolve? :])
 
 3. Slof, I have to ask - your character hasn't yet been dealt with by the Tremere fatherhouse in Vienna... why exactly? insane diablerist Tremere aren't allowed to walk around freely, period. forgive me for being a spoilsport, but I just don't understand.
 
 4. Killer - backtalking to the sheriff? Your character is also suicidal then? No, seriously, he's treading on thin ice already. Well, whatever. If Roman doesn't have a problem with it neither should I prolly. :shrug:
 
 Nag a lot, don't I?

 Good question and the reasons why they haven't taken action against her are many and involved! She was embraced at her own request in Vienna and was initiated in the traditional way, drinking from each of the Council of Elders. The details of the mess she has since gotten herself into can be found here if you can be arsed to read it all! Despite her faults and bad deeds, she is fiercely loyal to the clan, and has never even entertained thoughts of doing the Tremere harm, either by diablerising any of them or whatever. This isn't to say that they won't take action against her at some point - that will be something she will have to deal with if/when it occurs! She also has a very close friendship with the Regent of her main chantry home, and as he just happens to be the Prince too, she's been favoured slightly!
 
 Most of her problems have come about though her own inability to control her frenzy - and her aquisition of Vicissitude really was pure accident - diablerising the Tzimisce came later, she already had Vicissitude by then. She does try to be a good girl, but somehow her errant personality lets her down!
 
 I hope that clears things up a little bit. I said it was involved! Roman K knows the history as he took part in that RP too. happy

                He didn't specify in his earlier post so I didn't either, but I don't see any reason for it not to be unless any of you have objections.  This might be a good way for some of the characters to meet each other even if only briefly.

                Hello all. Sorry for the inconvenience caused by my absence. You see, my motherboard got fried so I had to take my computer to the doctor. Until it is fixed, I can't make a post. I need the peace and quiet of my haven to write Dreg back in the fray, the univeristy computer madness won't do.
 
 I've been with planetvampire since Dan took over so y'all won't be rid of me that easy. Unfortunately I have several works for school and right now they are stuck in the computer so those will get priority, which means I'll be longer still with making a post.
 
 And with a shorter explanation: "Life got in the way".
 
 I'll be back!
 
 Love y'all!

 Funny you ask that. I created a background story for my character that led him to his embrace, although I haven’t managed to fit it into the current story yet.
 He isn’t suicidal anymore, well not that much, he just doesn’t know how to keep his mouth shut.
 I was thinking something along the lines ‘Stop shoving me idiot, or this explosive under my shirt may blow up’
 Actually…I think Halton is the coolest kindred in the story, and I couldn’t resist messing with him.

                My problem is, or at the very least seems to be, ladies and gents, that I'm a die-hard procrastinator. I've got school work up the wazoo and if I do find time, I more often do something 'easy', like watching some TV or gaming a bit, instead of something as 'hard' as writing a well thought out post.
 
 I know I've touched on the subject of quantity versus quality before, but as of yet, I can't bring myself to make posts that are just as long or even shorter then this post.
 
 I know I planned to type that I'll try to post soon, but I also know that's not a promise I'll keep easily. So, the feature is...uncertain.
 
 Oh, and one last thing...Lancea Sanctum, stop stealin' my lines! ;-)

                Goddamn. Something funky happened to my account for a second there - that "delete this" post is mine. To be deleted, of course.
 
 Anyway, I was away for a short while, so there's some overdue complaining I have to do.
 
 Does Blake have Dominate? If not, than controlling that woman (at the club) in such manner was beyond his abilities. Presence doesn't work that way, if that's what you've had in mind, and Auspex allows to read or project thoughts or images (though not the levels Blake would have, I imagine), but doesn't grant mind control. That is Dominate. Didn't we have a talk about reading up on stuff? :]

 Ok I believe I may got a little confused there. Blake wouldn’t actually dominate her mind; I will rewrite some pieces of the post. But I thought his presence, allied with a fragile mind would allow him to order the woman to kill the hunter for him. It wouldn’t be something the woman wouldn’t be used to.

 You may want to confer with the other players/writers either through private messages or in here and figure out how you want the story to play out before making a post, it just keeps the writing quality up and avoids constant re-writes.  I'm not saying don't surprise anyone, plot twists are always fun, but the less changes after posting the better.

 Seriously though, we've got ourselves a situation now with Khalid and Ariana meeting. It's not that the clans simply hate eachother. They *HATE* eachother. And as for the Assamites - they usually shoot on sight. That's not the issue though. That's all cool. So far so good, right?
 
 Thing is, Hellwolve would really need to post right now.

 But does Khalid know Ariana is Tremere? After all, Lauren currently thinks she's a Ventrue because she's dressed all posh and used dominate while feeding. Just how easy is it to determine some of the less obvious clans? For example, vampires in Morrowind can smell the difference, but that doesn't seem to be the case in this. However, once she says 'I'm Tremere' then all hell breaks loose, yes? wink

 Unless someone tells, I would have thought she won't know - and Ariana isn't likely to say 'Hi, I'm a diablerist, you know!' It's a subject she's far from happy about since they were accidental, done when she was frenzied (apart from Razvan, whom she ate on purpose!). There's nothing stopping either of the Torries mentioning it to her though, as they've both seen it.

                The hunter is part of a particular group of hunters that benedict told Ariana about earlier, the Society of Leopold.   Lauren had a knife thrown at her by the hunter hitting her shoulder.  The other injuries where during the setup that failed to capture or kill him, not made by him, but by her helper who got a little too into the part.  Lauren doesn't know for a fact that the hunter belongs to the society but with his behavior it is a pretty safe assumption that he is one of them.

 Sounds good enough to me - Ariana's also familiar with the SoL as she's had them chasing her most of her unlife (hence her intense hatred of hunters). They know her as the London Witch, as that's where she was when they first saw her using thaumaturgy. She recognised the name on one of Benedict's files, which is why she asked him about his hunter problem. Mentioning them will definitely get Lauren an ally!
 
 She's not met one as tough as this guy before though! happy

                Hold on sugar.
 
 "Lars looking hostile"? Who do you take him for, a decade old neonate? And what's this about you writing Lauren's deductions? Isn't that her part?
 
 Pls edit that hostility part, as it's not how he'd react. He noticed the aura, that's all.

 Sue me then, I guess. After all, twas me who started the "complaint thread" in the off-topic section. Still, if I complain a lot, what does that make you - complaining about my complaining? Eh? Eh? :]
 
 I don't really feel like justifying my "moaning".

 I am waiting for a pm from Roman before posting in the story.
 Since my character is away from the main action right now, I thought a little intermission would be nice to explain a bit his untrusting manners and hatred for nosferatu.  
 But if Roman doesn’t reply soon, I will have to cut it down a bit and post, it wouldn’t make much sense posting it much later in the story.

 Soon to be dawn, actually, as my forthcoming post will say. Something like an hour before dawn, to be exact. In fact, I suggest you start thinking about day-wrap-up posts. After all, you lot have to hide from the sun somewhere, right? Archy, if you won't be posting soon, Wesley will arrange for a room for your character to pass the day in after he collapses at his desk. Wesley's Humanity is high enough for him to work through the day, albiet a bit less effectively than during the night, and that post will give me a chance to reveal some information about him that will make things a bit clearer. Pesonally, I'd prefer your char to actually do something before day sets in, Archy. wink
 
 As for Hellwolve and Montnoir, I hope at least ONE of you posts soon. Please? wink
 
 Also, PM's will be replied to shortly.

 Hello all!
 
 Motherboard wasn't the only thing fried. Apparently my RAMs and my harddrive also had some electrical backlash issue, so the motherfu#%ers formatted my harddrive! Without my consent! All my works for university were on that drive so if I don't get those back I am SO screwed! I have left my computer with a new doctor to see if he can salvage any documents from the formatted drive. It's unbelievable!
 
 ...taught me a lesson though...
 
 So there you have it. In the meanwhile, I'll try to make a post, as per the request of our storyteller/dungeonmaster/fearless leader, Roman the K, from the first computer I manage to hijack.

                Ladies and gents, despite my previous optimism, Khalid will exit this story. I won't tell how, as I want to keep it a slight surprise, but it'll be IC.
 
 Perhaps I'll have more time next time around, because with a bit of luck, I'll be able to concentrate on "Raven's Call 2" alone. Sorry Roman and all others, but I don't have the time I'd want and IMHO it's only fair I spend the time I do have to the story on the Summit, which I started to participate in sooner then Raven's Call.

 Just a little graphical update, there was a thick rain last night and I got bored. With almost nothing to do, I decided to rework Blake’s appearance picture. I believe the result is far better than the previous one. It now includes his weaponry, as well as his trusted ghoul.

                I'm not sure the Tremere would allow a non-Tremere to just wander around freely inside their chantry - most chantries are impossible to find unless the Tremere want it found! Certainly Blake could expect to be stopped and told to leave - forcibly if needs be, if he can't explain his reasons for being there. Their Thaumaturgy and other magic rituals would be conducted well out of sight or sound, behind locked doors. They are a secretive bunch - half the reason no-one trusts them!

 Oooh, oh, ok. *That's* what you've had in mind. Heh, alright. For some reason I thought we'd get the letter some time later, and are left with Khalid's mysterious absence for now. Don't ask why. To quote Jion "I must've been on crack or something".
 
 Anyways, nice work on handling ^that^ in that last post Grendel.

 ps. Slof's right for the most part. You can't just *stumble* into a warlock chantry. It's not that they're invisible, it's just that the security systems would obliterate Blake before he knew what was going on. Bottom line: even the Nosferatu won't as much as *try* to infiltrate a chantry, knowing it's suicide.

                They might have a few limited areas that they consider 'public', much like the one in Bloodlines, but most areas would be out of bounds to all but Tremere. Intruders in Ariana's home chantry in Twilight have never managed to get beyond the front lobby before dying horribly! happy

 My idea was just to find a couple more rooms, mostly empty, and then a heavily guarded area (or even nothing, maybe hiding a secret passage) and leave, but since you guys have a problem with it, I just changed from was in a chantry to had to be a chantry somewhere. Sorry if I upset anyone.
 
 Just to be on the safe side, what about the Sabbath?  There have been some mentions in the story, so it would be fine to find and destroy one or two?

 We are not upset. A mistake is a mistake. Once corrected, we will try to forget it.
 
 The Sabbat you can, indeed, meet. In fact, you will probably be meeting many of them pretty soon. At the moment they tend to keep to the sewers and to some murky warehouses, though.

 Thanks, I wasn't sure if that's what Hellwolve had in mind originally when he sent the note via PM, however this seemed to make the most sense.  Plus it pulled Dusty out of that grump he was in. happy

                I got a little story done, and I was about to post it, but I remembered of our resident leader of the complaint department, Lancea. So I am going to pm it to you first and see if you have any problems with it, so I won’t have to deal with your moaning later.
 Slof already took a look at this and approved, so I hope you wont get much trouble with it.
 Which remember me, Slof, can you pm the grammatical errors you mentioned? I hope I got all, but you never know…thanks.
 It’s an interview with the vampire kind of story where Blake reveals stuff about his past. Its mostly narrative, and I tried to capture some of the romantic fell of the book. I think it suits well for a toreador.

 Hehehe now now, gringo, you seem to be in need of a lesson on how to ask for favors.
 
 However since you already threw the story at me so ostentatiously, I did skim through it - nothing strikes me as drastically out of place – you’re free to post away. You've got my "permission" if that's what this is about.
 
 Your grammar is taxing nota bene, but not another complaint from me from now on, so don’t ask, howgh.
 
 Anyways, on to greener pastures, or, uh, whatever.
 
 Fellow Kindred! (-insert devious snickering here) I've been toying around with the sketches in Photoshop recently. Your thoughts on the results (only posting Dusty now, since quotes, inserting images et al doesn't work currently):

 Ã¢â‚¬Å“Hehehe now now, gringo, you seem to be in need of a lesson on how to ask for favors.â€?
 
 Ok…how about this:
 Oh great Lancea, thanks for blessing my story by reading it. And many thanks for your “approvalâ€?
 
 Kidding aside, thanks a lot, REALLY.
 I was curious about any problems the story may present in the wod universe, and since you have far more knowledge in it than me, I thought it would be fit to ask you to read.
 Regarding the grammar, I never had any english lessons, so unfortunately I will make mistakes. But you have to agree that the grammar problems reduced drastically once you pointed it out. I hope to get all, but some always slip by. Even word couldn’t find any grammar errors on that story, but after re-reading it this afternoon I found a few.
 And complain away, really, I may get a little upset, but it is with myself for making mistakes. I believe it’s important to hear another critic if it helps you to improve, and in that you certainly helped.
 Thanks also for Slof for taking the time to read it also and pointing some errors on it. Since I am not a writer, I was afraid my story would be…well…terrible.
 
 Btw, I really like the sketch.

                This is so wierd it's just creepy.  I just found a reference in Clan Novel Saga #1: The Fall of Atlanta to a Gangrel named Dusty.  
 
   The only thing it says about him is that he saw a Malkavian called The General awake from Torpor.
 
   Man, I thought I picked a non-vampiric name for my character, but apparently not.  I never read any WOD material at all before creating this character.  Anybody know anything else about this?

                I am not particularly happy with leading the hunter into Blake’s haven, but since my last attempt on leading him away caused such a commotion, I wont argue with it. I can live with it.
 I just ask that Lauren and Roman don’t progress with the story before I get a chance to make a post. I already have an idea in my head, just not the time to post it now.  I am not fast at typing with just one hand, so it will have to wait until I get back from work. I hurt my right hand, and unfortunately it’s immobilized until next week. (I still cant believe I am forced to work with my hand immobilized)
 
 Btw, Roman the hunter is still untouchable, or he can be killed?

 It's easy enough for me to lead him somewhere else - Ariana just wants him off the street before she starts throwing blood-sorcery around or fleshcrafting him, plus I think Lauren was eager to slap him around a bit! Yes, we will need to know how woundable he is - do we just slap him around and get slapped, or can we kill him? There's good eating on vampire hunters!

 Now then, a bigger problem. The story will, for the next month, go on a slower pace than I would like it to go. This is due to me having tests. I'll try to online as often as I can, but I make no promises.

 We can slap the hunter about though, can't we? After all, he was curious about Ariana - she's more than happy to satisfy his curiosity!

 It's exams, so it's the least of two evils.
 
 As for slapping him around, yes. Be aware that he is quite capable of doing some slapping himself. Oh, and the use of Presence was a nice touch, Sloffy. Too bad it didn't do anything.

 Yep, so he is. Tricks of the mind cause little beyond a very mild headache. A vampire using Obfuscate in his presence, for example, is in for a short, sharp shock.
 
 Where was I? Ah, yes.

 So, I guess using dominate is out too? She'll have to resort to sorcery and vicissitude then! Of course, she has to learn about his immunities first!

 As far as Dominate is concerned, if we go by the source book, then the answer is an extremely tentative and bewildered 'maybe'.
 
 If we go by me, then yes. I prefer me. wink

 You're in charge, therefore I'm happy with that! Blood-sorcery, vicissitude and celerity it is then! This should be enlightening for Ariana at least, though she already has some knowledge of his faith from his aura, so she's not expecting him to be an easy fight.

 She kind of stole a few - I did mention them in her bio. She doesn't have the skill with most of them as their original 'owners' would, with the exception of vicissitude (Razvan teaches that to her!), so her use of presence for example is not as good as a Torrie's. Same goes for celerity - Lars would outrun her easily.
 
 She relies mostly on thaumaturgy (her main specialisation), auspex and vicissitude with a bit of dominate (probably useless on this hunter).
 
 She also has problems with running out of blood with all those, as you can imagine... then she frenzies! I try to balance out strengths with weaknesses - she makes a lot of mistakes when frenzied! happy

 Fair enough with the disciplines, though I do have a, hm, request to make.
 
 Oh, and Lauren, Jion, Archybold and Killer - this applies to your characters too:
 
 Could you specify exactly which levels of each respective power the characters posess? Would make things easier in the future when determining what the character can and cannot do. Thing is for instance Lars' sixth level of auspex or Dreg's sixth level of obfuscate have been explained and justified. If a character's particulary well versed in a given discipline... it'd help to know. Pretty please, heh.

 OK, I'm not too clever on numerical values but I'll try to give an idea of it for you:
 
 Thaumaturgy - probably 6+ - she's an elder in her own chantry and teaches apprentices, and she's strongest with this. She tends to use this first, by choice.
 
 Vicissitude - about 4 - the Zulo form. She gets help from Razvan with that which is why she's good at what she can do of it.
 
 Auspex - 2 - she uses it to heighten her senses and see auras, not much else.
 
 Dominate - 3 - She uses it mostly for entrancing her food and getting her own way in political wrangling.
 
 Celerity - 2 or 3, not much else. Most use for escape or when fighting mortals.
 
 Presence - 2 or 3, again, used mostly for softening up a target in a fight, sometimes uses it in conjuntion with Dominate when she needs to get her own way in a political argument.
 
 Hope that helps you out a bit. She's strong yeah, but she's weak too - she gets hungry quickly and then frenzies (which is how most of her diablerie came about). She's a politician and sorceress first and foremost and I hope those reflect that to some degree.

 Whoa. Heh, no, no, no. Bloodlines screwed up Dominate in a fundametal way - it's definitely *not* a combat discipline. In fact, it's quite impossible to not only inflict damage, but even make the victim hurt herself.
 
 I believe levels up to 3 should do what you need.

 You gotta understand, I'm not the WoD die-hard that you are, my first intro to it is in fact Bloodlines, so if I make a mistake, that's most likely why. I'm playing a lot of it by ear - and even running my own RP on another forum. Apart from the vicissitude, which I had to do some extensive reading on since her having that came about from another RP she was in, the rest is pretty much based on a combination of Bloodlines and my own large knowledge of vampire lore, etc.
 
 I did say my idea of numerical values is a bit hazy, so I'm happy enough to go with your amendments there. She pretty much uses the offensive stuff in combat and the passive stuff in her more political dealings. You will see once I get her into a fight! happy
 
 
 I know you haven't RP'd with me before, but I often play down a powerful character by my own choice. She will fight, but she will hurt too, just as much! I quite often have as much, if not more, fun playing the weaknesses!

 Most Disciplines go up to 10, but the vampire has to be extremely powerful (like antedeluvain or methelusah) to obtain a rank this high.
 
 Here's a link describing some

I don't see myself as The Highest Authority On Vampire Stuff, chill. If Roman is ok with Ariana's abilities who am I to argue? Twas just a question for my own reference.

 Anyways, in addition to the tripod site I recommend Patman's Site to all; it basically covers all clans & bloodlines along with their disciplines. It'd help to look up at least the disciplines your individual character has, since Bloodlines altered them quite a bit.

 I've just noticed you already stated which levels Blake has mastered in the biography post Killer, my bad. Wait, those scores don't match the recent ones... Make up your mind :]

 I readjusted the discipline levels because I thought it was only possible to go to level 5. Since it can go up to 10, I rearranged it to fit with what I had used in the story that made you nag about the discipline levels. I will change the bio.
 
 As far as Blake acting like a 'soldier', I think you're attached to much stereotypes. Playing a toreador writing all the time the character spent all night watching the pretty colors on a painting would really be a pain, much like playing a brainless brujah that kick everyone’s ass, and all he can say is "I am going to kick your ass"
 Stereotypes are a pain. Not every one is the same, and I think not all torries should be.
 The bio and the background story I made focus on certain details only. The story for example talks about one night and then another one ten years later.
 I put on the bio that he was a hot-head and tried to show it on the story so far, this by itself lead to a more violent personality, which is what I had in mind for him when he was a mortal, and I believe there would be true to the first two years after his embrace. The next ten years he would be more on the pacifist side, and then became violent prone again after being left, fought the camarilla and spent the last two decades fighting off sabbats, and living around anarchs as well.
 I will certainly try to stick around the baselines I got for my character, if I ever write something like: ‘Blake put on the iron-man armor and left for a parallel universe’ hehe, please, nag away.
 As I know about the wod universe, Slof character would have to be destroyed for being a diablerist. But you don’t see me complain about it, do you?
 Having something different and unique is what makes it fun for me. But if I would have to play a stereotype, then id prefer not play it at all.

                Hehehe, not what I meant and you know it, Killer.
 
 What I *did* mean was that Blake, a former guitarist, is a young yet powerful vampire who's also proficient at swordplay, firearms and holds "several caches" of weapons hidden at different places in his haven, along with silver bullets no less, to name a few. I didn't enjoy any of the "Blade" movies, and, well, that's what you've got going there.
 
 What I *didn't* mean was playing along the lines of stereotypes, hah, really, way ahead of you gringo. It was me after all, who started  
 THIS discussion, which pretty much revolves around the things you just hinted at.
 
 Bottom line - the character's been approved and I wasn't contesting that. To each their own, and if such a character suits you then, by all means, continue. My "complaining" just seemed to bug you, so I gave the reasons for it, that's all. Live with it, as they say, eh?

 There is quite a long story behind that which explains it. Roman K knows it as he was taking part in that (and still is I hope once our DM's back up to speed). If he had a problem with her, I'm sure he would have said so, or asked me to create a new character. Many of her deeds were detailed in that other story! It helps that the prince of her home town is a fellow Tremere and her friend! wink
 
 Basically, it comes down to this: Roman K said she was fine, so that is good enough for me. I'm an experienced RP'er and won't overuse her power. I've played tougher vamps than her before!

                If you think I was complaining, you’re mistaken, that’s Lancea´s thing. I was just pointing out the singularities to him...and trying to bug him a bit for a change...hehe (no offense meant to anyone)
 I mean, why a former guitar player can’t know how to use weapons after all? I admit I was a bit inspired by the Blade movies when I created my character…that and the vampire chronicles to name a few, and I mixed a bit of both.
 The pistol pic I posted is inspired on Reinhardt pistols on Blade 2 after all…
 I have no problems with your character Slof, I find it interesting actually. And I agree with what you said in a previous post about Lancea being a die-hard wod fan.
 But he is entitled to have his opinion…but it isn’t like they say, “live with itâ€??

 It wasn't aimed at you specifically, more just a general explanation why she's still 'alive' even though she's a diablerist. In a similar way, I have no problems with Blake being a fighter type - after all, Ariana is a classical pianist, but she's also a blood-sorceress and fleshcrafter!
 
 And anyway, I liked the Blade movies. happy

 Alex saw her at the time, if I'm not mistaken. She was outside, near the car, and thus in his line of sight.
 
 Now then, everything with Sloffy's disciplines cleared up? Without my intervention, even, I must say. Actually, with the numbers as they are now, your character isn't too powerful, Sloffy. Nice.
 
 Jion, stats are fine. Miyo's only ability in the whole wide world is Dementation, so a level 6 ability is no problem.
 
 Killer, playing a weak vampire can be very fun indeed. Roleplaying is less about combat and more about character. You should focus more on playing the role, and less on playing the role of Blade. wink
 
 Oh, and I like Lancea's complaints. In fact, I very much approve of them. They clear up issues. Carry on, Jeeves. wink

                Bad choice of words on my part, I meant defenseless...
 I admit I inspired myself in Blade to make the fight scenes, but my character kill a couple of weak vampires, and another one, distracted, from his back, and suddenly he is Blade? Oh well...I will tone down on the combat posts (only 2 out of 20 so far though), but I think there will need at least one more for now, since the hunter is near?

 It suits me too as the ones she uses the most are thaumaturgy and vicissitude - the lower levels of all the others suit me just fine - keeps things simpler for my old brain cell! She only needs what she's already used the lesser abilities for.

 Your character was fine so far, have no worry about it. No need to tone down the combat posts. The reference was only to what you have planned now.
 
 Again, the problem is not with the amount of combat posts, but with the content of said combat posts. So far, you've done good, and the character of your... well... character, shone through well enough. Personally, I'm just a bit worried about the future, what with the Blade theme hitting in too much. It's just a little inconsistent with your character up till now, is all.

                We'll need his combat skills for hunter-slapping! As long as she doesn't frenzy, Ariana is considerate of her allies when fighting, so will give 'spell coming in' warnings where appropriate! If she frenzies, she won't be casting spells anyway, she'll be fighting with teeth and claws, but don't get in her way - that's when she makes diableristic mistakes... or rearranges people's anatomy by accident... wink

                I thought of a couple things since my last post, and I was wondering if those bone blades did aggravated damage, i.e. Is Dusty going to be able to heal that hole in his torso anytime soon, and does Kuei Jin blood have any special properties?

                The Blade inspiration is only to when it comes to combat, and I wanted him to get those new pistols. wink  
 For character personality I prefer something like Anne Rice's books. I like the idea of blending those styles.
 If I was going for a Blade personality, id have my character killing any vampire in sight without a scratch, the hunter too.
 And that's not what I am looking for, I assure you, no need to worry.
 Btw Slof, I wouldn’t advise fighting the hunter with claws or teeth, since doing so, the character would be burned to death getting so close to him. Someone correct me if I am wrong...
 ...And you would get Lancea complaining again (sorry, couldn't resist to bug Lancea) happy  
 
 I agree with Roman, Lancea's complaints are always welcome; it certainly made me learn more about the wod universe. I just can’t hold myself sometimes form bugging him. No offense, it's just fun.
 
 Btw, about auspex, I know it can allow reading minds, but it can allow a vamp to send images to another person? And if so, would be something Blake could do?

 I agree - but a frenzied vampire isn't going to care! I'm not saying she will - I tend to quite often frenzy her on my own whim depending on how a fight scene plays out. Sometimes she's controlled and using magic. How the fight goes will determine Ariana's behaviour. happy

                Dusty'll heal aggravated just fine by directing blood to the wound, Grendel, though it'll take more of it than for healing "regular" damage; beats me if the bone stuff would deal aggr though. To be decided at storyteller's discretion? :]
 
 In Reply To #413
 
 Yes and no, in regards to reading minds, in that order. I linked the Auspex description page for Slof a few posts ago, go read up. Basically though, it works like this:
 
 Auspex 4 - "telepathy" - allows to read the target's current thoughts at the moment; this is actually empathy and more of an extension of "read aura" than real mind-reading; can be resisted.
 
 Auspex 6 - "telepathic communication" - grants the power to actually read the target's mind, project thoughts, sensations et al, meaning telepathy "proper"; this level can also be resisted though, as it happened to Lars, hm, somewhere around the visit at the Hole.

 The bone blade was usage of one of the Kuei-Jin 'disciplines', called Bone Shintae. I'm not evertly familiar with the Kuei-Jin myself, but if memory serves me correctly, those blades do not deal aggravated damage. Just very sharp bone, is all.
 
 As for the blood, as far as you're concerned, it's not magical. There is Blood Shintae, but that's really just shaping weapons out of a Kuei-Jin's own blood.
 
 Anyway, you will soon be familiar with something quite different - Demon Shintae. Fun, fun, fun.

 Oh, two announcements I forgot to make:
 
 Montnoir needs to finish at least one thesis right now, as per his mail at the 14th. He might post during this week, but I don't believe it to be likely. He will return.
 
 Archy moved house, and his ISP is screwing him around, so no home connection for him at the moment. He's got exams right now, so no mahor access time at college. He will post once he is able to.
 
 Oh, and a post from me will appear today. That is all. happy

                I apologise for my absense, my internet problem should be sorted very soon, I've caught up on all the story and am currently considering my post, I should be back and sorted by monday (according to Tiscali, but they can't be trusted).
 
 As was requested, I've considered my disciplines, it should be noted that Jake diablerised his sire upon being embraced so there's a difference between what he's capable of and what he can perform (having been dangerously close to being a caitiff), and on that note, I think I should state that his generation should be projected to 11th.
 
 Obfuscate - lvl 3 Mask of a Thousand faces (though the nosferatu have only had the chance to teach him as far as lvl 2 Unseen presence)
 Auspex - lvl 4 Telepathy (having never really used the discipline, except by accident, Jake can only perform lvl 1 Heightened senses)
 Dementation - lvl 6 Babble and The Call - not sure if two at the same level is possible (where Jake's sire really shone - he was able to utilise the 'Network' to communicate with other Malkavians, but Jake, having interacted very little with other malkavians has only ever performed lvl 2 The Haunting)
 The reason for his underdevelopments is not only because of his lack of teaching, but also because Jake has no intention of using disciplines, they take him further away from his human side and closer to being a vampire, Prodigy has other plans... Dr Steiler should be able to teach Jake how to utilise his abilities.
 
 I hope this is alright, and I'll be back as soon as possible.

                No problem with me. I thought id post something, since the story hadn’t moved in almost two weeks. Just to see if I could get people to post again.
 Lauren outdone me though, trying to lure Lancea in.
 
 Roman are you there?
 
 Since I can’t seem to get people to answer me if a werewolf fang has any effect on kindred whatsoever, I am posting a new chapter on my interview with the vampire thread.
 This little piece with the werewolf I created to be the base idea for a new story, but realized I don’t have the time or enough knowledge (wod universe) to run it.
 Just thought it may mike a nice story, and it also explains the part about the “Witchâ€? mention on my Raven Call post.

                Lauren - I had your character send Lars a message, since she never let him knew she won't need that ride in your post, and I didn't wan't to drag the coterie halfway across town for no reason.
 
 Since we're still figuring out how exactly to proceed, and either way we decide (though we're pretty much agreed as to the next step, right?) I've sent our characters on a break from the go-ask-the-next-vampire routine.
 
 I took some liberties with the characters as well as with the city in that post, though I don't think I overdid it.

 Also I was bored, so I did some images. Blake with his sire, Brianna. Blake with Julie. And Markus, the grangel (I tried to do something like sabertooth to him, but I don’t know why he looks a bit like Bruce Willis to me)

                I would assume that would be the case, the sequel would probably open up the chance for a new story (obviously), new PCs and the chance for the return of the old ones too. Like starting again, but with a lot more established background story (i.e. the current story).

                I was thinking about making my character meet yours at the bar, but was unsure about it and choose a different bar for the story.
 They encountered each others very briefly, and didn’t interact. I was curious to see how they would get along…
 They could still meet outside of the bar, what you guys think?

 Hey Lancea. Dreg seems to have a lot of things going at the same time and I think I need to finish at least a couple of them before he can get involved with others.
 
 As a sidenote, I'm still trying to puzzle out how he's supposed to do that "thing" with the gas and the light... trying to make it interesting...

                Hey all! My PM is acting weird so I'll use this for the time being.
 
 First of all, what has happened to Roman? Where is he?
 
 Then for the questions. I'd agree that we shouldn't continue without Roman, because it's his story. Even though he might not have had so much planned and possibly winged it, he still had a general purpose and a general idea. So it should remain his.
 
 Now Raven's Call has progressed rather far, we have quite a backstory, we are used to the characters and we have Lancea's slick pics.
 
 Personally I feel that getting Roman back would be for the best as I am not really into doing a new town with new characters and new sketches and new backstories and so on and so forth.

                Yeah, we can just as well talk here.
 
 "What has happened to Roman?" is the key question, to which - I think it's already established - we've no answer, mont. Ya sod :P
 
 But seriously now, for all we know he could be enjoying his summer, suffering amnesia or be abducted by pink aliens. It's only been two months since the last story post after all. But, then again - it's been TWO. FREAKING. MONTHS. (random hollering)
 
 As I said, continuing without Roman (whether with a new ST or with none at all) would feel weird and prolly wouldn't get us far either. It's his story & setting. And it's the story & setting that keeps the characters going. Kept. Whatever.
 
 Starting anew with the same characters doesn't make sense in the long run - unless we go all Jason Bourne and pretend Raven's Call never happened that is (which is one of the worst ideas ever, not even limited to this board).
 
 So, here we are, or here am I at least - can't continue, but don't want to move on. The horror. The cruelty. The angst.
 
 still cheerfully yours,
 Lancea

                Looks like we can't continue with Raven's Call without Roman.  I still would like some sort of closure for Dusty, I had his ending all planned out, so I'm not quite at option D (just give up) yet.  Does anyone know Roman's personal e-mail, or any other way to contact him?
 
 Well, I'm game for a new story, 'cuz I got characters I want to try out, but I'm hesistant to try to start my own story what with limited expertise and a tendency to trail off...

 You want to do me a solid and send it to me, please?
 
 For anyone interested (or having PM probs), this is the message I sent out to all the Ravens Call people.
 
 <orange>By now I'm guessing Roman's out of the picture. (Unless someone's heard something different..Roman, you out there?)
 Do we try to...
 A)continue without a storyteller,
 B)nominate a new one,
 C)[INSERT BRILLIANT 3rd OPTION HERE], or
 D)Just give up?
 
 Lancsters, you're the most well-versed WOD-dude we got in the story, would you be interested in taking over storytelling duties?</orange>

 -Update:
 
 I recieved an e-mail from Roman a few minutes ago that explains his situation.
 
 Roman:<orange>I am currently patrolling the perimiter of a small Israeli military
 base, and the mobile phone I am currently holding, along with being
 the means of writing this, is also my only connection to the outside
 world.
 
 About one week from now I return to something that can be described as
 a normal life. Then I'll do my best to get the story wrapped up.
 
 Cheers.
  </orange>
 
 So anyway, this explains a lot and gives us hope for the future.

                Well, I apologise for my lack of response to this important discussion on the future of the Raven's Call story (well, it seems to be sorted out), but I haven't been receiving any notifacations of PMs to my e-mail, and this site has become a passing thought to me, only being checked every week or two (sums it up really) because I've been busy getting sorted for uni.
 That brings another problem, I won't have access to a personal computer until once every month, whilst I can always type a response up in a computer room, I prefer privacy for it. But, anyway, I'm eager to rejoin, once Roman returns, of course.

 At all. Clicking on the login link doesn't go anywhere for me.
 
 So, just to reassure you lot I'm around and planning, I've sent this here email. I'll be printing a few posts to review later, and I'll try to get something done.
 
 Again, apologies as to my absence, but you don't say no to the green envelope. I should've tried to get online and let you guys know before I left, but that just didn't work out. I'll do my best to make it up for you.</orange>

                Glad to hear Roman is back. I too have the exact same login problems with the forum, but I found a workaround. So Roman, if you are reading this:
 Instead of logging directly at the planetvampire forums click on the “powered by forumplanetâ€? (button on the top left of the screen).
 Then login there. Reenter planetvampire forum address and presto! You should now be logged. I hope…it does work for me, I promise!

 After taking Killer's advice to heart (thanks), I have managed to log into the forums once more. Again, apoligies for my long absence. If such a thing ever happens again, I have Grendel's email to notify you.
 
 I have started writing a post, one which will hopefully get the story moving again. Lancea and company, your path is your own. Once you reach whatever it is you reach, though, I will handle that end of the matter.

 I was thinking, some burning sewerholes and firetrucks driving around, people in the streeets in their nightys (big boom gets people out), but the fires ought to be contained in the sewers... maybe the odd burning building. I bet the fire didn't even spread to all sewers, just a certain portion.
 
 So it should be rather free for everyone to make up their own size to the fire...
 
 ...did that make sense? Anyway, ultimately it's up to Roman. So ask him

                Eh Lancea, I haven’t posted anything since I had the impression Roman was sending the hunter my way. I am waiting to see if it does happen.
 Plus Lauren and Slof are MIA, the characters Blake would likely interact with.
 Blake hadn't enough "solo" adventure for now?
 Ok, Lauren’s last post came after mine, but in pm she said that last post was to be previous to Blake leaving the chantry. So again, I am waiting.
 
 In any case, I don’t think Slof visits the forums often anymore. If someone has her e-mail, it would be a good idea to let her know the story has continued.

                I still lurk and keep up to speed on the story, but there's nothing really affecting Ariana right at this moment. She's just busy fixing up her face in front of the computer! The hunter is still wounded from her vicissitude and blood-slurping, so he's kind of out of it for the moment!
 
 I don't post here as much, but I do still lurk. Most of the current topics just don't interest me at the moment.

 I'll be writing a post withing the week, though I'll need to get to the uni to post it. As the semester hasn't started yet, this will be problematic. I'm using a wireless modem at the moment, but that isn't cheap or, for that matter, available to me at all times.
