Which clan you're playing, tell us about your build
>>2850625Brujah! Focus on melee, celerity and potence, and it's helluva fun.
>>2850634going anarch or cammy?
>>2850625Playing a persuasive Malk. Obfuscate is incredibly useful even though I've put all my points into persuasion, dementation and a little bit of auspex. Still in the relatively early-mid game but I feel my brawling Brujah from the last playthrough had it a little easier when it came to combat.
>>2850641This time gonna commit social and actual suicide by going solo, and flipping the bird to all of the game the factions.
>>2850625Tremere cheese best
>>2850651>This time gonna commit social and actual suicideShit. IN THE GAME. Going for Lone Wolf ending. Gonna kill the character, not myself.
>>2850625this game is so awful lol
>>2850660your taste is awful
>>2850664no, these heavily narrative driven "insert character spreadsheet, receive story" games exclusively attract people with shit taste and people will excuse the buggy snorefest actual player driven bits because of something as trivial as branching dialogue
>>2850625Gangrel+meele+intimidation. I'm a lone wolf.
>>2850625First time playing Malk and having a blast. Having your character call Chunk her beloved jelly-donut is priceless>>2850660Filtered.
>>2850671>FilteredBy what? The game isn't hard or complicated, it's just another tranny darling like NV thanks to its abundance of sultry lesbians, edgy bdsm aesthetic, and emphasis on character drama and being a special snowflake.
>>2850651>and actual suicideWhy? The PC can go to any territory not held by Sabbat and just chill there if they behave. Neither Camarilla nor Anarchs have reasons to hunt them down.
>>2850625Smooth talking qt as fuck Tremere girl with a katana and a 44
>>2850625Tremere full gun/persuasion/bloodmagic 0 meeleCamarilla ending
>>2850757In Lone Wolf ending pc is well, alone. Lone wolves don't survive in the wild without a pack. Vamps are social creatures, and without backup in any form of some social organization, be it a sect or even a cotarie usually don't survive very long. The World of Darkness is a very dengerous place, full of ancient iluminati like organizations, plots and conspiracies and no matter how baddass someone seems to be, alone they are fu*ked.
>>2851039Autarkis do exist and the game makes it clear that you can survive without pledging yourself to a sect or clan. Beckett? So yeah, as long as you're powerful and earn enough respect, it's quite doable, though still very risky. I'd say the neonate has earned quite a bit of respect, doing all they've done not long after being embraced, so they're on the right track.
>>2851062Pc is a fresh fledgeling, they are not Beckett. It is highly implies that fledgeling successes happened mostly thanks to Kain fuckery. For me the flipping the bird scene in the Lone Wolf ending was signifying that pc had enough of everything that happened in their short unlife, pc fought sabbat and camarilla both, so that bridges are burned, and then from own valition thrown away their last lifline in the form of anarchs. Basicly its the f this shit, im out ending.
>>2851059VTMB is zoomershit, its not remotely old lol.
>>2851085He's right. Between Jack viewing the PC favourably, Mercurio being a potential ally who has nothing to lose with moving out, Gary definitely being willing to trade info and favours, Anarchs possibly considering the PC a decent person? Plausible. Word gets around.>pc fought sabbat and camarilla both, so that bridges are burnedThe new temporary (?) Camarilla bigwig most likely bears no ill will towards the PC unless you have deliberately pissed him off.>and then from own valition thrown away their last lifline in the form of anarchs.You believe that Anarchs of all people would take grave offence at being flipped? In THAT particular scene, after everything that has just happened? Please.
>>2850651The taxi driver would be displeased
>>2850625>>2850775>>2851062I very much enjoyed my Tremere playthrough, was right about everything I expected with one detail - I was very dissapointed that there was no option to call out Strauss for not opposing the execution. Like sure, makes sense for a Trem to pick the Cam ending in the Clan first, Camarilla after logic ... But considering a Tremere PC has a lot of dialogue unlocked with Strauss, I did expect an OPTION to say "why no help?" Particularly since it meant doom for both the PC and the Tremere Sire, if Nines didn't intervene.I'm amused by the idea of pic related shoving Strauss a pineapple up his ass for his mishandling of the situation.
>>2851229Interesting idea here. Mercurio has a lot of reasons to help the PC. If he's still "employed" by the Cam, business as usual. If he supplies Anarchs, it's the same difference. If he's unemployed, that means he lacks a source of vitae, which is something a PC may help the guy with, and without the BS other control freaks may require.As for Beckett, he clearly cared enough to WARN the PC, so there may be some polite respect in the future.
>>2852100which ending would fit the nosferatu PC more? please help
>>2850634>Play a Brujah>Do the mission with the serial killer>Get to the fight>Activate celerity and all that other good shit>Air juggle him out of the map
>>2852225Anarch>but they are Cam, that's why they were targetedClan first, factions second, as Bertram said. Plus their haven is underneath Hollywood, and they are on relaxed terms with Isaac, considering he said they usually answer and the entrance to their Haven has his trigger-happy ghoul guarding the place. There's also the part where you can snitch on Strauss to Isaac after you convince the weeb in the theatre to help anarchs.Bertram helps you either way, and the Shitpost Chamber in Hollywood is comfy af
>>2852225There is the option to persuade the guy to be Punisher-lite but lmao. Nice to have some vengeance after making people no-clip due to his cars making the level unbeatable
>>2852113Pretty much. Even if the PC didn't go out of his or her way to be nice to others who survive, they have no reason to treat the PC badly or tell others that he/she sucks. And if you actually were diplomatic and helpful enough the only significant threat in the nearest decade or two would be Sabbat. And Pisha, maybe. And Gehenna.
friends im torn between nosferatu and malkavian for my rp playthrough, im your basic 4channer, loner, virgin, and schizo irl, which clan would embrace me, i dont have any skills, but im always that tech friend my friends come to me with tech issues
>>2852100>no option to call out Strauss for not opposing the executionHe is a very much by the rules guy. He did not have authority to oppose a Prince publicly.Or it might have been a very calculated cynical play. Wait for the Prince to make enough blunders to dig his own grave.
>>2852308In the Clan Quest Mod where he sends you on a very fucky mission with little preparation, you can actually confront Strauss on this. While CCM is fan content, his reply is very ... lore-friendly. He apologizes, stating he did not send you poorly prepared on purpose, but rather he didn't even think to prepare you because he's used to apprentices who obey (via blood ritual, one may assume).In other words, he wasn't remotely concerned about you out of habbit.
>>2852307>im your basic 4channer which clan would embrace menone whatsoever
>>2852313>apprentices who obey (via blood ritual, one may assume)Of course. The Pyramid.
>>2852326One scenario I like is that even if the PC goes Anarch as a Tremere, you can still pull it off without being marked as a traitor to the clan if you pick your words right. Essentially, say that you're a spy, or a diplomat, or even the true leader of the Anarchs or some such Machiavellic bs that he cannot refuse your reasoning. Even if the Pyramid leadership may be getting anal cramps at the idea of a free-roaming Tremere, the idea of enlisting Anarch help at the drop of the hat may be too enticing to pass up.Plus Heather lives in the Nerdhaus and Strauss may think that will assure some loyalty, particularly if the PC cares about Heather. Thanks for reading my fanfic. On a sidenote, how do I post links here?
>>2852319>>2852307Nosferatu to win an internet argument about vamps being real and knowing nobody will bother to look for you.
>>2852344Sure, they'd let the PC go as soon as he or she is introduced to the wonders of never having true privacy again. And pretend that whatever you were trying to sell them is legit, to the outsiders.Links to what?
>>2852356It's not like the Pyramid lasts much longer, if you take SOME of V5 as canon.Also, how to post embed links so I won't get a ban. Pls.
>>2852358>embed linksLolwut? Are you at least 18?
>>2852362Yes. I simply haven't used this site as much as ... maybe everyone else in this thread? So I realized I have no idea how to do so.
>>2852344>how do I post links here?Copy url, paste. Done. If your using some shit tier website you'll get an info that what you trying to post may be a spam and 4chin will block you from posting links.
>>2852366Only mods can embed googletube links. I don't think they can embed anything else, doubt the website supports it as is. Maybe an admin could add it quickly enough but Hiro obviously will never bother.
>>2852367I was thinking of linking a youtube VTM song but I heard people get b& due to some ancient abuse of the system that never got patched out. So whenever someone posts a catbox or moe, it's embedded.
>>2852367He (?) is asking about embedding, mate. In times long gone that anon would have been shouted into coma for not lurking 2 years.
Haven't done yearly Bloodlines playthrough for the first time in like a decade. I'm gonna be out of a PC soon for who knows how long. Should I play just in case I die anons?
>>2850693>game isn't hard or complicatedFiltered
>>2852399Play it, and don't die anon.
>>2852399Yearly? How many have you done? Any clan left unplayed? Any playstyle that you'd regret if not done? Hope you get out of your predicament quickly, and cheap, Anon.Chin up, fren.
>>2852408Noticed this rant was stupid long and unecessary so disclamer for what's ahead - I have unironic autism:>How many have you done?First run was Tremere, then Toreador (twice, got burnt first time around due to playing right after Tremere and repeated later), then Malkavian.Then I started recording conversations that I liked in games, plus taking screenshots, so I repeated Toreador third time and then played Nosferatu.Therefore I guess that makes it 6 times, first 2 starting around ten years ago, but the other four were a yearly thing until this last year in which a lot has happened.>Any clan left unplayed?I haven't played Brujah, Gangrel or Ventrue yet. But I want to play male/female versions of all clans for my obsessive screencap archiving purposes, so the ones I mentioned I'd still repeat them with the opposite sex once. I call it the Eternal Replays lol, this game never gets old for me.>Any playstyle that you'd regret if not done?I'm thinking about this. Don't have a clear idea yet.>Chin up, fren.Thanks anon.>>2852407Yeah I think I will, I've been thinking of playing something before I run out of time, I don't think it can be any other game.
>>2850625Amazing game, happy this was made before fun was censored for a decade and happy game is playable on modern systems.
>>2850625I only did two playthroughs.First was Toreador with Celerity abuse which was kinda boring but really powerful.Second was Malkavian with a ninja style build which was a lot more fun to play.
>>2850693>everything I don't like is trannies!My dude you're getting filtered by life.
>>2852510there is a tranny threatening to kill itself for attention in this very thread lol
>>2850625finished an incel sabbat nosferatu run recently, was pretty fun
Anyone else get the thing where stuff all turns into fridges?
>>2852547In the malkavian version of that glitch, everything turns into toilets
>>2852547Never had it. Also no longer remember what causes this, from what anons have posted about it.
>>2852547It's a memory leak, I think. Save, quit, reopen.
>>2850625Everytime one of you niggers posts something about this game I get the itch to play it again.And I don't even fucking like vampires. They're kinda gay.
>>2852570I'll avoid a food analogy and instead say this is kinda like a 5/10 girl who you like thanks to how she makes you FEEL. At first it sounds kinda gay until you realize that 50% of women don't make you feel anything, and others varying degrees of cringe. This girl is cool, unique, and does that kink you like, so you value her above a platinum blonde slut who's only achievement is being a mattress actress.
>>2852100>I'm amused by the idea of pic related shoving Strauss a pineapple up his ass for his mishandling of the situationIs Aislingfu was in LA instead of Strauss, this whole conlict would've unfucked itself within 5 minutes. The girl's getting shit done.
>>2852904>My apologies for not arriving earlier, Neonate. I hope you can overcome this sordid first impression."I was never upset with you, or Strauss.">Being polite is fine, but you shouldn't lie just to impress me."I'm serious. The Regent was just following his rules, what dissapointed me is that there ARE no rules of conduct for my Embrace, therefore he couldn't act.">Huh. On this, I agree with the regent. You'll do well in our Clan.Something like that. Gosh, the only thing that gave me hope for BL2 was the original composer being on board. Was wide to be reserved.
>>2852904>>2852945I just realized that Tremere are the lawyer clan.
>>2852951>Strauss says Clan, pauses a bit, and Camarilla>PC asks if it's in that order>Strauss laughs and compliments, without directly answering
>>2852951Tremere are the Wizard Jews. Always have been.
>>2852100I feel like I'm one of the few that think that Lacroix didn't plan to execute the PC before Nines intervention. Sure, it makes sense to kill a fledgling that has no sire, but I feel like people like Lacroix always have use for people like that.
>>2852975Let's say that's true ... feels like a "I wanna clean the house" mood, then someone tells you to clean the house and now you're like "I don't wanna". Is that why he sent the PC on suicide missions? Someone slighted by that wouldn't be a good boss in the long run either.
>>2852975LaCroix isn't a sharpest knife in the drawer. He just wanted to swing his dick around by bullying some random newly embraced schmuck.
>>2852527>everything i don't like is a trannyVtmb is popular in slavic countries. Bad shit is happening right now there. Anon mentioned that he would not have access to pc and might die. Anon could get a war ticket.
>>2852992I swear to god, if I'll get hit by a stray AA rocket again, I will demand our Krabs back.
>>2852992>Vtmb is popular in slavic countries. Bad shit is happening right now there.So fags and trannies? Don't make me post the BJ webm.
>>2852968I have interacted with them once in my whole life.
>>2852997Uh, I don't get the meaning of this reply. You're saying you lack interactions with lawyers, or saying that I do? There was no disrespect Anon. In VtM there's like two Tremere chars and one is an enemy so
>>2853000The former. In retrospect it is obvious from precisely that in-game conversation, I did find it clever even but have not associated it with lawyers for some reason.
>>2852100Why would Strauss give a fuck about you or your sire? Tremeres aren't supposed to embrace without explicit consent from the local regent, he would have been as ticked off as Lacroix about the whole situation.
>>2853056Internal investigation and not wanting to have his clan (already shit PR) get shat upon any further.
>>2852100>I'm amused by the idea of pic related shoving Strauss a pineapple up his ass for his mishandling of the situation.How would Strauss actually compare to her power-wise? LA is not some bumfuck nowhere, his Chantry must have some weight to throw around.
>>2853075>LA is not some bumfuck nowhereLA is anarch territory and tremeres are pretty firmly camarilla. Politically speaking NY should be so far more important it's not even worth comparing them.Also Aisling is not just a regent but a high regent, and on top of that she's a signature character so a max level writer's pet. No comparison at all.
>>2852344The pre-V5 Tremere would have just put out a hit on you if you joined the Anarchs, regardless of whatever pretext you gave. They might pretend to play ball long enough to get you to assassinate another Tremere renegade just to get some utility out of you before doing you in, but only if it didn't take too long. Their monopoly on thaumaturgy is their clan's most valuable asset and they cannot risk the possibility of you teaching it to your Anarch buddies.
>>2853075>How would Strauss actually compare to her power-wise?In terms of personal power-level, Strauss fucking owns her, he's an ancient Tremere, she's just some 150-year old kid with unorthodox ideas. She's way younger than Beckett, amusingly enough, and Beckett isn't all that old by comparison. Aisling just happens to be VERY competent. I guess it's the game's fault for now showing how truly powerful an ancient vampire like Strauss should be.
>>2850668Why are you here?
>Toreador>become enraptured by Jeanettes feet
>>2854010>I guess it's the game's fault for now showing how truly powerful an ancient vampire like Strauss should be.He got a retarded Prince removed, the Kuei-jin and Sabbat pretty much gone extinct in LA, Anarchs knocked down a peg, clan Ventrue severely weakened, all without lifting his decrepit ass off of his chair.
>>2850625Most fun run for me was Toreador with beautiful monster history, using the Lestat reskin. Low humanity, high seduction and persuasion. IRL i'm a kissless virgin.
This game is for people who get filtered by RPGs.
>>2850625>Which clan you're playing, tell us about your buildLast run I went h2h ventrue since I wanted to see what extra options I got for full dominate in dialogues.Made little difference, and dominate/presence were frequently redundant too.On the other hand, the guy was a combat monster. Between fortitude and presence I was pretty much invulnerable, easiest playthrough ever (if a bit boring).
>>2850625What clan would best fit Alucard from "Hellsing"?
>>2854306Tzimisce diablerist, omnomnom.
>>2851199wtf are you talking about? it came out in 2004 when the oldest zoomers were still in preschool
>>2854306Given that he's literally fucking Dracula, that would be a Tzimisce.
>>28543902004 is the era when RPGs blinked out of existence thanks to bioware. Most people from this period don't know what a rpg is, because they grew up with action "rpgs" and generic bioware slop.
>>2854399yeah then how tf is vtmb zoomershit
>>2854410because it's for clueless consumers that got into vidya after it became a generic blockbuster form of entertainment, the zoomer era of media. things are just starting to heal now because the divide between this and actual vidya is so large and apparent that niches can form.
>>2851199>not remotely oldBaldur's Gate 2 was released in 2000 (22 years ago). VtM: Bloodlines was released in 2004 (18 years ago).
>>2854306Tzimisce with Alucard's ability to morph into literal blob fanged monsters.
>>2854306Trick question, he's too manly for World of Darkness.
>>2854241please consider a nosferatu run, it fits you more
>>2854417Anon, you are full of shit. I played those games 20 years ago. The word zoomer came in how many years ago? Stop trying to pretend you are right and just be quiet.
>>2855333>Stop trying to pretend you are rightI'm not pretending, I am right. This game is for fart huffing idiots. Just look at the "discussion" in the thread, this is no different than skyrim discussion.
Does anyone know how old Damsel is? I always though she was pretty young.
>>2856623Between the cheguevarian looks and the nam veteran vampire talking down to her, it's hard to imagine she could be any older than 30 years tops. 50 if you also count her living years.She's old enough to have beef with Lacroix personally though, so I doubt she can be less than ten years old.
>>2854306Some ancient Tzimisce that cannibalized a number of diffrent clan vampires.
>>2852547even the bugs on this game are full of SOUL
>>2854306His "turning into shadows and devouring people" shit is very Lasombra imo
Does anyone else always screw over Strauss with the Hollywood Baron? I mean come on, it’s 3 XP. Fuck Tremere.
>>2859772The charm is situationally better than the xp.And really, Tremeres are cunts, but so is every other vampire.
>>2850625>tell us about your buildYukie's undead gaijin orbiter
>>2850693>VTM is soooo like totally tranny and pozzed sistersMaybe in the current year because faggots like you obsess over it and force it into marketing, but it certainly wasn't back then.
>>2861214I agree with you but don't go overboard by saying thanks to some people they put that shit into the game/marketing.
>>2861214There are homosexuals relationships hardcoded into the game. "Marketing" at the time forced the devs to disable the male on male ones at release, but don't worry, the unofficial patch fixes that. Tell me again how le epic and redpilled the game actually is, though.
>>2861214Only in this den of mouthbreathers I've seen people taking such characters seriously. WoD was always "pozzed", but dumb faggots like you who never touched any of their games insist in larping as a player.
>>2861214>it certainly wasn't back thenPic unrelated?
>>2861214>trannies are "le based and redpilled" nowwew lad
>>2861318>Pic unrelated?PIc very much related. Troon isn't humanized here, it is presented as an abominable freak.
Why must her fate be so cruel, bros?
>>2862041He's a NAZI, dehumanized and presented as an abominable freak.It's just like the other anon said, WoD was always pozzed.It's just that what passed for extremely pozzed 30 years ago would get you called a right wing terrorist today.Making a character a tranny or a faggot to make it look bad was acceptable even among far lefties in the 90s, don't kid yourself.
>>2862041>tzismize, the tranny clan, have several trannies>all mary sues and/or portrayed in a good light or with high "cool factor">all but the naziSo "nazis bad" is the real redpill? Now that's an interesting turn of events.
>>2862053My AI art senses are tingling
>>2862041>PIc very much related>mtf tranny called "she"Lmao. White wolf always was made up by far lefties.
>>2862062If your criterion for "pozzed" is just "Nazism sucks" then yeah, but you're also a fucking loser.
>>2862175No, just an artist who can't draw faces
>>2862234My criterion for for political bias is going out of your way to attack a specific political ideology way outside of any political context. Vampire has a long history of this, it's not really something you can contest.The specific criterion for pozzedness is the very peculiar frothing at the mouth extremity of their political bias. I mean really, it's not even a malk and they still went out of their way to make it insane and self contradictory, they're not in the slightest subtle about it.
I played the clan quest add-on stuff and it felt way too out of place, it was passable, but I probably wouldn't play it again. How are the Antitrubu and Final Nights mods? Is it worth playing them? I don't hear much about them.
>>2852100The Tremere are supposed to go through a long ritual when they embrace where they bloodbond the Childe to their pyramid structure. Given that this didn't happen to the PC, it can be assumed that your sire didn't even ask Strauss for permission to sire. So in Strauss' opinion, the fledgling is just a rogue Tremere, outside of the pyramid structure and with questionable loyalty.
>>2852547I remember having the glitch but things were progressively turning into dartboards. On my first playthrough going to the downtown haven the doorknob was a dartboard and I was so fucking confused until I played the game the next day and realised it was a glitch.
>>2865567sabat path from clan quest is pretty good imo antitribu was kind of shit i've no memories from final nights but from what i recall it came with some cool arsenal mod which had some bustet tools
