Last Sunday my RPG group began a Vampire (DA) campaign.
We are set in Turku and bound for Aland (you know, with the little “o” on the capital “A”) because Marc wanted to try his hand at a campaign where the players had to sail and survive.
I am, yet again, a gangrel clan member. I get to turn into a tiny grey fox and I can be a bit intimidating, Granny Weatherwax style.
[note: btw, this is why I am basically jelaous of pretty handwriting]
If Vampire Authors ran VtM Games
Bram Stoker: Fuck you, Vlad. I don't care how many points of Retainers you have. You've min-maxed your way to Protean x5 and now you're up the creek without a Common Sense Merit.
Anne Rice: I know it's from another game system, but please mark an "Angst" rating on your sheet. Also, I looked over your character concept and noticed you selected a Clan other than Toreader... could we talk about that?
Stephanie Meyer: True Love costs 0 points. Everyone feel free to take it. Also, I'm not a big stickler for Humanity mechanics, ignore all frenzy rolls for this chronicle. Actually... come to think of it... ignore all rolls, I'll just make them for you and let you know how much of a winner you are.
Barnalúdicas is starting tomorrow and I plan to be there for the whole weekend. Barnalúdicas is the biggest event about board-games/role-playing games in Barcelona (maybe even in Spain?) so I am considerably excited.
I have a few friends who LARP a vampire game (the name of which escapes me at the moment). This goes out to them.
In my last big Vampire game half the team looked like gothwashed Gambits. All of them: the French ravnos, the assamite assassin, the obvious lasombra… My gangrel spy character looked like female Gambit. Cliché vampires much? Not going back to that: I’m done with “kick ass” characters.
Fantasy blog masterlist: books, fashion, LARP and art.
REBLOG IF YOU’RE A ROLEPLAYER
The Victoria Francés artwork is a bit too refined for the Gangrel clan. But of course this is just my opinion. Digging the boots and the messenger bag. Comfort over looks: Ennoia herself would be proud.
