Indeed, perhaps a Politics General thread should be created in Off Topic section of the forums?

Yes, please do so and keep this thread for the CQM!

The real question is how long the masquerade will last, since the kindred is bound to be discovered by the majority sooner rather than later.
In my humble opinion, since I lack the statistical information on the current numbers of sect devotees, I think that the kindred is getting too reckless. Camarilla is to my knowledge crumbling at a considerable pace, anarchs are a loose bunch and the Sabat, is well, Sabat. Maybe I will be harshly judged for this, but I would like WoD to have a definite end, since no masquerade can go on forever - if we apply the whole system of degradation to kindred as a whole, there must come a point of "global withering" when the blood becomes to weak to survive. Adding artificial length to the universe would be counter-productive in my opinion.

It's better to move that into a separate topic.

I'll start toying with the road soon, to see how the parts fit together.

spiffing up the diner now that I know where the other tutorial wall is used. have to add the original door to my texture until I can redo ALL the stainless in the diner at once to make it all match. also want to do the crates and fence from the tut since they look super fast and easy.

posted the first texture pack, for an hour or so lol.   Of course I found a mistake and have to fix it, THEN re-upload the texture pack. looks AMAZING in the tutorial too for the bits I did. it is a STARK contrast :O

have not really played since I started these textures and WOW.

Seeing jack talking and moving with quality textures behind him is AMAZING.

simply forgot to add a door to a texture from the diner used in the tutorial minus the door. forgot that for troubleshooting I copied and pasted the wall over the one like it which has a door on it. . . oops. so. no door. only more wall. easy fix after food.

Glad you're understood one of my points, though the main was that judging historical figures and their plans based on winners/loosers logic without giving a thought into the reasons for successes/fvckups or what and where exactly went wrong is prevalent, unfortunately.
It's not uncommon to glorify everything that had left on the winning side, even if plans/models by itself weren't any good, and, conversely, bash everything else without getting into details. That, probably, is one of the most glaring examples of ostracised, misinterpreted and purposefully obfuscated part of the history.

As an illustration, I wouldn't say "Hitler was a pussy", but "Hitler was a pussy for not finishing Britain off and using that success as a political bargaining tool".

Concerning Napoleon, I think that was both a sign of acknowledgement and an artistic statement to the whole world. Since Empire style was influenced by antiquity, it means he's a hero in ancient, not modern sense. Like, a hero of Greek tragedy who is doomed to be defeated by his own fatal flaw, the very same that pushes him forth.

In other words, the above could be interpreted as: if acceptance "as is", as a historical personality, not another scarecrow, means we should hail him as a hero (no other way around in our winnerlooser world), we will do right that. I think I've expressed my implications about Hitler a bit clearer.

Vampire 5th Edition comes out next month. A new concern for vampires is the "Second Inquisition": although society at large is still mostly ignorant, governments and some other institutions are aware of the existence of vampires, and use technology like IR cameras and "metal detectors" at airports and such in order to find them.

Pulled the rust discoloration out of the white paint.

If we assume the medicine cabinet is from 1950 or so (reasonable assumption) it is 50 years old minimum , assuming the medicine cabinets are not as old as the bathroom itself.

Still far newer than the building which the architecture suggests is older still.,
