Ok, it's time for some Candy!

Ok, Boys and Girls!

I have been thinking about certain aspects of the game, and what I am looking to accomplish in it. My intention is to start you guys out as experienced members of the Sword of Caine, not high level, just experienced enough to get by in unlife.

Therefore, please add the following dots to your sheet, free of Charge:

  • 1 Dot of the FollowingLore: Cainites

  • Lore: Sabbat

  • Lore: Your specific Clan - (Yes, Dan, there is Clan Lore: Pander)

If you have already bought dots of these, add another. You cannot be brought above five. If you have already bought up to five, hold onto the dot for now, and I will tell you where to allocate it.

  • Additional Point of Willpower

  • 1 Dot in one of your In Clan Disciplines (Cannot bring you above 3)

If you have bought 0 dots in a discipline, you MUST spend this dot on a level of that discipline. Dan, you may buy a dot in any of the Core 8, nothing Clan/Bloodline Specific.

After that, give yourselves 50 XP to spend on your sheet. Note: These are to be spent as XP, at XP costs, not Freebies.

With that, I would love to sit down for an hour or two with each of you to talk one on one about your character’s background, perhaps run a little prologue before we get going.

If you have any questions, please drop me a line @ , or respond to this Blog Post.

One more thing I forgot from the prologue last night:

Standing next to Vykos when it congratulates you is this figure:

He looks intently at you for a few minutes, seemingly scanning you. He stares for long time at the messenger bag holding the "cold book". A moment later, he raises his head and smiles at you. "Good luck with that." he says.

He then turns and enters the rubble of the Chantry. Unearthly screams can be heard anew from it a few minutes after he enters, and another massive explosion can be seen about 5 miles to the west.

The Vykos looks on with admiration...

(More to come!!!)

Shared Dream

Your dreams throughout the day are troubled as of late. Every since your pack came to Mexico City, something seems to be calling out to you...

Images, fleeting, confusing, are coupled with a sensation of anger, horror, frustration, and despair. In your dreams you see two figures, one you cannot make out fully, only that he is tall and heavy set. The other comes into focus quickly enough, and you realize that you look upon the face of...yourself. You reach out to touch your face as it gazes at you, only to have your hand blocked by something cold, transparent, unyielding. The face sees your attempt, and chuckles as it turns its back on you and walks away. You scream in horror as the thing that has stolen your face leaves the room, still laughing...
