Considered giving the server a chance. Got a few friends lined up to join. They may not be VWH veterans, but they're knowledgable in the WoD lore. Might invite them. That is, if you convince me that the server is redeemable.

Vampire Application

General questions:

1. What comes to your mind when the word vampire arises? What is a vampire in a human view and what is it from a vampire's own view? How different are standard folklore and World of Darkness vampires?

Whenever I hear the word "vampire", I usually think about bloodsucking monsters who lurk in the darkness and walk amongst us. That was before I read what White Wolf Publishing had in their minds. After reading and understanding Vampire the Masquerade, created by White Wolf Publishing, all of my thoughts about vampire before were revised. After reading the VtM book, I now think of pale, bloodsucking spawns of Caine from different clans and bloodlines with their own powerful Disciplines or abilities who follow a set of rules, the Traditions, to keep their existence.

A vampire in another vampire's own view depends on them. A territorial vampire may view another vampire who resides in his "claimed" territory an enemy and should leave immediately, while a monstrous and greedy vampire may find his kind an enemy, hoping to be the only vampire world-wide. An optimistic vampire may find men of his kind a brother from the same father, Caine, and a vampire may find men of his kind strangers and would act violently when slightly pissed.

If a vampire may find one of his kind a friendly, humans have their own opinions, and its hostile. Humanity in the modern age tend to be overprotective and would kill anything or anyone they don't know. If they see an alien from outer space, they'd assume it's here to initiate war and it would be brought up to NASA for questioning then possibly killed after. The elders of the Kindred society know about this fully well hence why they think its important to uphold and obey the Masquerade.

Folklore vampires are different from World of Darkness vampires in numerous features. Folklore vampires may have a weakness on garlic, running water, and holy symbols, while most World of Darkness vampires can resist these unless cursed. Folklore vampires die when staked to the heart, while World of Darkness vampires suffer complete paralysis when staked to the heart. Folklore vampires rest in their coffins and wait for the moon to rise and the sun to set to wake up, while World of Darkness vampires aren't that weird and would usually hide in their havens where the sun's rays won't hit them. A good example of a haven would be a dark cave or a basement. Folklore vampires act normally with fire(only Frankenstein goes crazy with it), while World of Darkness vampires frenzy on the sight of fire(that is if they fail to control the Beast within). With all these differences, folklore and World of Darkness vampires have a lot in common. Their weakness is the sun, they look pale(Assamites are an exception, wherein their skin grows darker as they age) and feel cold, they have supernatural powers, one includes commanding through eye-contact and quick speed and reflexes.


2. What kind of consequences could possibly arise were a vampire be outed to the general public? What sort of action would be taken by various governments and the people? For this reason, do you think vampires should take the chance of coming out clean or should they rather stay hidden?

In my opinion, the consequences of this scenario would be very dire such as the extinction of the race or even the horrific destiny of Gehenna each and every vampire fear to happen. If the government gets news about the existence of our race, they won't hesitate to drive us away just to create a safe environment for the city. If they don't, citizens would leave the city. It would be a ghost town and vampires have no more food. Vampires must always know that the population of humans are always greater than the population of Kindreds (( not in this server, though )). If the people would hear news about this, it's most likely they'll help the government drive them out or worse, start an anarchy that would make them distrust everyone except for themselves which would end up in humans killing other humans, and vampires may even perish through this. So in conclusion, I am a hundred percent go on upholding and obeying the Traditions.

3. What are The Traditions? Who enforces them and how do the vampires view it?

The Traditions are the set of rules for Kindred society that was supposedly made to preserve the existence of vampires. These Traditions are so strictly enforced by the Camarilla that should anyone plan on breaking a single rule, he should face Death immediately. The Traditions are important aspects that shaped the Kindred history and psychology. History in a way that the founding of the Anarch Society happened because a Brujah stood up for the helpless neonates and psychology in a way that they are one of the causes of the start of the longest war in kindred society: the Jyhad.

Different personalities of different vampires from different sects have different opinions on the different Traditions. Sabbat members are the more monstrous vampires who reject the Traditions and favor power more than their own existence. On the other hand, Camarilla vampires aren't technically the "good guys" but they are the ones loyal to the Traditions and obey them to preserve the race's existence. Anarchs may be rebels, but they still respect and uphold the Traditions. They just don't like the elders managing it.

4. What is a Clan?

A clan is a vampire's lineage or some sort of "family". A vampire who shares the same clan of another vampire shares the same blood and respect the same antediluvian. There are 13 clans that divides the Kindred society, and these clans were founded by an Antediluvian from the third generation. When a vampire embraces someone, his childe receives the same clan he is in.

Each clan has a set of 3 different Disciplines. These Disciplines may be common ones like a Ventrue who has Dominate, Fortitude, and Presence. These three disciplines are common to other clans as they have it too. Although there are other clans who knows Disciplines no other clan know like a Tremere who has the Disciplines of Auspex, Dominate, and the unique Discipline of blood magic which is Thaumaturgy. These "rare Disciplines" are the Disciplines they try hard to keep secret.

5. What is a Bloodline?

Bloodlines are just like Clans, it is a vampire's lineage. They only differ in ways such as how some don't have an Antediluvian to start with, some were just experiments, some were antitribus of their own clan, while some were flawed during their Embrace. There are numerous bloodlines in the Classic World of Darkness.

6. What sort of process is an embrace? What's diablerie? Why are both of these practices so commonly heard about? What's the view on these two?

The Embrace is a process of "reproduction" for vampires. It is done by draining a mortal's blood till it's empty and replacing it with a drop or two of the vampire's own. With this, a new vampire is created. When one Embraces, her childe is always a generation(see below) higher than her sire's.  For example, a ninth generation Embraces a mortal, she (the victim) would be a vampire of the 10th generation. Different clans and bloodlines have different ways, practices, and choices when Embracing a childe.

Diablerie, or Amaranth for old-school vampires, is the process of consuming the blood of a vampire till its last drop and taking in her soul in the process. This is a very dangerous and horrific, yet beautiful, practice. It is the only way a vampire can become more potent while becoming closer to Caine through blood. This process requires full concentration and even a teeny-tiny distraction could end the process forever. This makes diablerists prone to attack while diablerizing. There are also consequences when committing diablerie like a diablerist being controlled by the soul of her victim and the history and behavior shift of a clan when an Antediluvian is diablerized. For example, Troile, the progenitor of the Brujah clan, diablerized Brujah, the progenitor of the True Brujah clan, and it changed the course of vampire history. Diablerie also leaves black streaks in one's aura. If a Camarilla, a sect who strictly disallows diablerie, member would see these streaks, she would be reported immediately to the authorities where a blood hunt would be directed to the diablerist. Sabbat, on the other hand, encourages this practice, making their neonates stronger and as powerful, preparing them for the coming of Caine.

7. What are the vampire generations? How far do they stray from the original? What are these generations? Does generation measurement exist within the society?

The vampire generation is the unit of measurement to how far a vampire's blood is from Caine, the father of all and the original vampire. Generations are part of the vampire lore, but aren't technically a thing inside the World of Darkness. It's just a measure of how far one is from Caine.

To start it all, Caine is the first generation vampire. His childer, Enoch, Irad, Zillah, and the rest, became the second generation vampires. Their childer, the Antediluvians, became the third generation vampires. The progenitors of the vampire clans and [some] bloodlines. Then came the methuselahs, the fourth and fifth generation vampires, and the elders, the sixth, seventh, eighth, etc. The farthest generation recorded was the sixteenth generation. They, and the eleventh, twelfth, thirteenth, fourteenth, and fifteenth generation vampires, were considered as warnings and symbols of the coming of the Gehenna, the apocalypse for vampires.

8. What are the two notable Anarch Revolts? What sort of effect did they have upon the vampires?

The Anarch Revolts were events that transpired when the younger vampires rebelled against their elders after knowing they were just controlled and manipulated by them.

It all began when elders started sacrificing their young to the Inquisition of Middle Ages. A Brujah who had a voice in the Ventrue Council, Patricia, who then changed her name to Tyler, wanted to stop this and fight the mortals. The Ventrue, as their dedication to upholding the Traditions, especially the Masquerade, objected her, knowing fully well that hiding was better than fighting. The disappointed Patricia left the council and joined a group of Brujah rebels (this was when Patricia changed her name to Tyler). She started a war against the elders in the Hardestadt Castle and was successful. Patricia then proceeded to commit Amaranth on Hardestadt.

The Second Anarch Revolt happened on the last years of World War 2. The revolution of the mortals started its conclusion. The Camarilla authorities made Don Sebastian as Prince in Los Angeles. The Camarilla wanted to improve their area of influence, hoping he'd end the continuous rise of the Anarch members. What Sebastian did was the complete opposite of what he was ordered. He ignored the rising numbers of the Anarch society. When it hit him, it was already too late. They were outnumbered. Sebastian then ordered the immediate execution of Anarch leader Jeremy MacNeil. MacNeil, thinking smart, didn't counterattack the Camarilla immediately. Instead, he and his soldiers studied the havens of the local elders.

On December 21, 1994, the Anarchs declared the start of the Second Anarch Revolution. Sebastian was killed and the surviving elders fled the city. After this revolt, the sects have been planning different ways to conquer Los Angeles, but after the event, they fear of their own death, hence making Los Angeles a Free State.

Character Story:(Min. 300 words; Max. 3000)

Spoiler for Story:
1990

A heart-shaped restaurant. Does it even exist? How does that look like? Architect Blaine spent all day trying to figure out how a heart-shaped restaurant looks like. Even a brilliant architect like him couldn't see a possibility of a heart-shaped structure. "I dreamt of building a very tall skyscraper on the grounds of the Manhattan skyline, but here I am, stuck in designing a heart-shaped restaurant." This project was given to him a few weeks ago. Needing a lot of money to support his family of 4, he had a plan to take 2 to 3 projects simultaneously, hoping that they wouldn't be that hard. And by "not that hard", David didn't mean a heart-shaped structure. He already had 2 more unfinished projects on his hand. He was required to do a presentation the day after the next, but David couldn't find his self going anywhere near success on this f*cked up heart-shaped restaurant.

How did this happen? Where did it start? Why did this mess happen in the first place? Well, it started on 1980. 19-year-old David saw the rise of a new popularity: buildings. He thought much on how buildings reflected his life. Strong and sturdy on its first days, weak and vulnerable to destruction on its last. David's youth was an exciting one. He was born into a wealthy family, able to provide him the needs and wants that sprouted from his mouth. Like how most kids from wealthy families, he became what most people call a "spoiled brat". This was to be proven on 1883.

He was still 12 when both of his parents died due to a flooded ship. Although spoiled, he respected his parents. He mourned for their passing and suffered a state of depression so deep that he craved for his death. Then, he met someone that would change his path and vision of life.

For four consecutive years, David has been going in the same library. Although old, he favored it the most among the other nearby libraries for he had a lot of treasured memories. He was well known among the librarians for his loyalty to the library.

1992

One day, on a rainy night around Paxton Library, Maggie, the head librarian told David that the library would be demolished on the next 3 weeks. David felt broken, knowing that all of his past memories he dearly loved so would be nothing but stones.

That night, David continued thinking about ideas on how to stop the demolishing of the library for a couple of hours already. Till finally, he got a plan. David burst out his house and started running towards the library in the middle of the heavy storm, hoping someone would still be there to hear his ideas. When he arrived there, he saw a dim light coming out from the storage room of the library. He tried the door and successfully opened it. He thought the librarians were still expecting visitors or they just forgot to lock the door.  He wanted to make a sound, let the librarians know he was there with an idea, but something just made him shut up and check out what's going on in the storage room.

As he came closer to the room, he could hear voices that were speaking something David couldn't figure out. When he came too close, he noticed that all of the librarians were squatting on the floor, forming a circle. With them were faint flames from candles and different symbols on the floor. Then it hit David. They were doing a ritual. They were clearly chanting a ritual. But a ritual for what? Do those even work? How did they know these?

David continued watching for a few minutes and became tired eventually. He did an attempt to bring a chair by the door without making a noise. He was halfway there when he almost tripped on a wire, creating a loud bang from the fallen chair. David looked at the door of the storage room, only guessing that that loud of a bang would catch their attention. He looked around and found a bookshelf that wasn't leaning on anything and hid behind it as he heard footsteps approaching and Maggie's voice calling out, "Who's there?!" After a few minutes of chairs creaking, tables and shelves making annoying noises as the librarians searched the whole library, it came a dead silence. When David could only guess they were gone, he peaked from behind the shelf and shrieked.

It was Maggie staring at him directly. He wanted to run but someone grabbed him from behind and started dragging him towards Maggie. He started talking to Maggie, but in a different language David didn't know, but it sounded a bit Latin to him. David, creeped out by the group, could only stare at Maggie with a look of a frightened coward who's faced-to-face with Death, himself. He heard her reply to him with the same language. David's previous frightened face eventually became a curious face as they spoke in the same language fluently. Maggie finally looked at David and said, "You're loyalty has been awarded." The man then released David. David ran for his life but Maggie caught up with him and tackled him. He then felt two sharp pairs of objects that sunk in his throat and felt the most ecstatic pleasure so satisfying that it made him wait for Maggie to finish what she was doing, hoping it would never end. He then felt a strong numbness and felt dizzy as he fainted.

He woke up on a different bed in a different house with different people and felt a different and ineffable feeling. Maggie came in the room and smiled at him.

The sun was about to rise. Listening to Maggie's advice of avoiding the sun as he's a different person now, he decided to move to a more dark room with its heavy curtains that blocked the sun's light to reach the interior of the room. Maggie followed him and introduced him to another favor.

Maggie, the Regent of the chantry, offered David a job in exchange for knowledge and teachings. The job was simple for David. Design another library in Montgomery with a more secured room that serves as the chantry. David agreed and worked for it for weeks. Finally, Maggie found the perfect structure. Maggie told David that they would think about it, but in reality, David was just tested for his loyalty and obedience even though this was already shown in his mortal days when he stayed loyal to the librarians and was obedient to them. This was one of the main reasons why Maggie chose him. Maggie brought David to the Inner Council of Seven and introduced him. After then, Maggie went with the deal and started mentoring David in his lores.

1994

Maggie decided to release David from her watch, removing his status as a fledgling, making him an independent neonate. But this didn't mean the end of mentoring David. She continued mentoring him with his paths and other basic needs in his new life like defensive and offensive skills. They, together with the other former Tremere librarians, resided in Montgomery where the new chantry was also set up

1999

Maggie gave an order to David to move to Palomino Creek and find others of their clan and befriend them. Or even those who aren't of clan Tremere. Having no other choice, David moved in Palomino, hoping to make new friends, although he was always welcome to return to the chantry if ever he needed help.



Out of Character:

1.What kind of powers are you allowed to use in public? What stops you from using them?

Blessed with the powers of Auspex, Dominate, and especially Thaumaturgy, no power is supposed to be used in public. Well, except for Auspex, it's a passive discipline, and by "passive" I mean invisible to the human naked eye. Auspex is all about supernatural senses. Dominate is pretty much breaking the masquerade. It's commanding people and removing their will and liberty. It's basically making mortals into servants and puppets. Using Thaumaturgy in public is like shouting to a city of Inquisitors that you're a vampire who does blood magic and they should hunt you just like how they hunted and burned witches before. Thaumaturgy is possibly the most dangerous discipline to use in public. Within the three, the only discipline safe to use in public would be Auspex. Dominate and Thaumaturgy are out of that list. Even if there are no mortals, one could not really be so sure. The first second he can conjure flames out of thin air in an alley where he thinks he's alone, the next second he'd be burning from his own conjured flames.

2.Someone has discovered you. He's planning on making a statement within a week, you have all the time to prepare. What do you do? Consider consequences of every sort of action. Putting down more than one option increases your chances of getting accepted.

Clan members of clan Tremere are possibly the best in covering their tracks. They know history. Why? Because once you've been Embraced as a member of clan Tremere, that means you're an educated student. Members of clan Tremere, which would henceforth be known as Tremeres due to its long name, are known to be really educated, gifted with the intelligence attribute.

Tremeres are given the Dominate discipline which makes it easy for them to cover their tracks. Even the first skill of Dominate can make an eyewitness go bye-bye. Vampires with the Dominate discipline can play with a mortal's mind like dolls in a tea party. It's just too easy for them, especially if that mortal is weak-willed.

And of course, you have Thaumaturgy. Possibly the closest you can relate to witchcraft. With its awesome rituals, a Tremere can threaten, or possibly even curse a mortal with a few key ingredients.

Besides, these Tremeres are very intelligent. They wouldn't just make every secluded place a shooting range. And with their intelligence, if they do get caught, they have a few manipulative tricks they can do. They can convince the witness that if he/she would be on his side, he'd make him the most powerful mortal in the world. Of course, that would be deception, but it's worth a shot. Then there's bribing, threatening, then last of all, actually kill through physical or supernatural means like rituals.

3.An officer walks up to you and tells you to stay put, you are a wanted individual. In the struggle you both shed a good amount of blood, what could possibly happen in this scenario and how further can you avoid these dangerous encounters?

Of course I'm not gonna use my precious disciplines and risk myself getting killed just because of a speeding ticket. Whatever my offence is, I'd gladly take it and spend a few time in jail. I've lived for years, heck, decades. My jail time would just be like one of those boring years. But of course, that doesn't mean I should actually get myself arrested. In prison, it would be hard to get a source of vitae. I'd try my best not to involve myself in criminal doings and go home, study occult books, practice on my Thaumaturgy, and I'll be out of danger's way.

4.You mutter around town and notice a rather viscous looking hairy beast with claws stretching out of his arms. What could it possibly be and what could you possibly do about this?

It may be a wolf, a werewolf or another shapeshifter(includes Gangrels). It is completely harmless when untouched. So, to avoid any danger or possibly violence, it's best to leave it alone. This changes the entire scene if the animal is attacking, in which case, nothing is better than to run, escape and hide, especially if there's a pack of them. But if one has that fighter spirit, he/she would attack back, but if I were to consider every consequence, I'd rather keep myself away from any danger. One thing I learned about werewolves are that they are machines fueled by desire, lust, and rage. And that even the youngest of werewolves can kill a neonate or, if in a pack, an elder or methuselah. So, to avoid Final Death, it's better off to not attack or do anything stupid, cause god knows what will happen.

5.You've been at the game for quite a while now. You are walking down a dark alley with your partner and three thugs come out of the shadowy corner, aiming their mundane weaponry at you. Should you be scared?

Well, I've been at the game for quite a while now so that gives other players a chance to rob me. Having to notice each detail in this scenario, there are three armed enemies in a private place. As a normal person, yes I would be scared and I would do anything to keep my body alive, meaning I would comply with everything they say, even if it means losing my wealth and my stuff. I mean, who ain't scared of three guns pointed at their heads? But if I were a vampire, there's enough to kill for three guys. If I were to have that Brujah spirit in a Tremere body, I would finish each and every one of them through Thaumaturgy alone. But my character ain't one of those. My character shows empathy and a peaceful surroundings, although ironically he seduces people, and suck their blood, but it's for his good. What other choice is there than to suck blood? So, considering the traits of my character, I would comply like a regular guy and be scared. It's for everyone's sake.

6.Considering your bloodline or clan, what sort of job would you be good at? Make a priority job and a side job in case you need one.

Considering what I am and the concept I've planned for this character, I'd do well as a hermit. Of course, go out a little for vitae, but mostly stay indoors, avoid the sun, and study occult. But if I am forced, I can be good with a street magician with Path of Conjuring, making rabbits pop out of a magician's hat and that hat being withdrawn from an empty pocket (folded hat, ofc).

Player information:

1.For how long have you been playing on Vampires, Werewolves and Humans roleplay?

According to my forum profile, since 2016.

2.Make a list of your current and past characters.

Emily Aldrin
Oliver_Whitestone
Phoebe_Anderson
Ava_Tremble
Nicholas_Grey
Dean_Washington

3.Do you understand that by taking part of this race, you can be changed by the race moderators (or even admins) for the most simple reasons? If you are to apply and get accepted, you are to follow the race rules to the fullest extent and upon reaching zero masquerade points, lose your character. Have you read all of this and understood what's your part?

Yup.

4.Post a screenshot (embedded with  code, no links) of your admin record and activity (include each personal account):

Spoiler for Dean:



5.If there is anything you would improve/change regarding the vampire race, what would it be? Nope

Vampire Application

General questions:

1. What comes to your mind when the word vampire arises? What is a vampire in a human view and what is it from a vampire's own view? How different are standard folklore and World of Darkness vampires?
A Vampire is a certain past human who've gone through the embrace and got turned into what he is now. While Vampires are said to be immortal, however they can be killed, and they do not need to eat, drink or breath to maintain their "lives."
They do not age, and most likely do not die from natural causes.
A vampire can resist a lot of pain, but after all, he's not invincible, and he can suffer the final death. The final death is when a vampire ceases to exist and is clearly stated at dead, as his body turns into ashes.
After the embrace the vampire's fluids turn into blood, his skin keeps to get paler as he ages, but he looks the same. Hence why a nervous vampire sheans blood, while crying he rather drops tears of blood.
Vampire's body does not function the same; he can't eat food as he vomits it almost up instantly, as mentioned above only blood manages to sustain him. As of their social lives, they use their lexicon to define their ranks and the supposed knowledge. Such as Fledling, Neonate, Ancilla, Elder etcetera.They're supposed to follow custom rules and protocols so they can maintain order.However, some of them prefer to blend in with the humans, while others get just to hide around and find the perfect moment to strike.
While vampires in the real world mythology are said to be propelled by garlic, killed by a cross right across the heart, instantly killed by the sun and have no reflection what so ever, in the world of darkness; garlic has no effect what so ever on them, a cross or any huge item through the heart could torpor or paralyze the vampire but could however not instantly kill the vampire, they do mostly have reflections unless we're speaking Lasombra or any sort of flaw or merit, and the sun may or may not kill them, but clearly weakens them at a point, but there're always expectations as in "fortitude".


2. What kind of consequences could possibly arise were a vampire be outed to the general public? What sort of action would be taken by various governments and the people? For this reason, do you think vampires should take the chance of coming out clean or should they rather stay hidden?The consequences of a vampire being outed to the general public would have a very big impact on the vampire itself as well as the whole vampiric society. A scenario we could imagine very easily would be if someone would record a video of a vampire feeding on somebody in an alleyway without the vampire noticing at all. Shortly after the incident the video would pop up on all websites and news channels where thousands of people are able to see. The Government would probably send out special agents after the vampire, the Camarilla would immediately try to cover the incident and make it seem like something else while also running a blood hunt, trying to capture the vampire who violated the Masquerade and eliminate it, other sects like Sabbat would probably not do anything because they don't uphold the Masquerade as strictly as the Camarilla. The Masquerade wouldn't exist if it wasn't necessary to keep the Kindred society functioning, but since it's very important, every vampire must do their best to remain unexposed to the mortal society.

3. What are The Traditions? Who enforces them and how do the vampires view it?
The fundamental laws are a set of codes created by The Camarilla in order to maintain their secrecy and not to show it to humans. Humans are not to know of vampires, and it's the best to be kept that way if one is to breach the laws he's to be punished accordingly.
The traditions are as listed:

The First Tradition:
The Masquerade
Thou shall not reveal thy true nature to those not of the Blood.
Doing such shall renounce thy claims of Blood.

The Second Tradition:
The Domain
Thy domain is thine own concern.
All others owe thee respect while in it.
None may challenge thy word while in thy domain.

The Fourth Tradition:
The Accounting
Those thou create are thine own children.
Until thy Progeny shall be Released, thou shall command them in all things.
Their sins are thine to endure.

The Fifth Tradition:
Hospitality
Honor one another’s domain.
When thou comest to a foreign city, thou shall present thyself to the one who ruleth there.
Without the word of acceptance, thou art nothing.

The Sixth Tradition:
Destruction
Thou art forbidden to destroy another of thy kind.
The right of destruction belongeth only to thine Elder.
Only the Eldest among thee shall call the Blood Hunt.
From my point of view I think that the masquerade laws are supposed to be as they are, as without them the vampires would have gone extinct due to them not holding themselves and showing their true predatory nature leading to their actual secret being gone, and hence why humans hunting them would not be the best option.

4. What is a Clan?
A clan is the lineage of a vampire, the vampiric family in which he was introduced in, there are total of thirteen clans with thirteen different Antediluvian, the founders of these clans. Each clan is distinguished by trademark disciplines and political views.
Clan Assamite - they are known for their amazing hunting skills and are known for  notorious assassinations across the World, their origins were said to be in Middle East. They are known to do blood rituals and follow the Path of the Blood.

Clan Brujah - Once known to be new Aristocrat in the days before the Christ, but after Christ came they come to be great warriors who were sung in the myth and legends. But after the time passed by they became with very short fuse.

Clan Followers of Set - They worship the old ancient Egyptian god Seth and they denounced their belief that Caine was their creator and instead they believe Seth created them all. Their love for ancient artifacts are priceless and they’ll even protect it with their own life to save them.

Clan Gangrel - Prominent in their skillful disguise they often walk around the numerous cities as local animal resemblance, praying on people who take them to their homes. They’ve also mastered their discipline called Protean

Clan Giovanni - In recent years they usually became mobsters who racketeer the city their in, oftenly they don’t Embrace outsiders who are not part of their family. Rumors state that they command the dead.

Clan Lasombra - Noblemen who hold the darkness in their fingers commanding them whenever they want to do.

Clan Malkavian - Desperate ones who got consumed by the insanity and madness as they often speak about the End of the World and how Caine is going to kill them all.

5. What is a Bloodline?
A bloodline is somewhat similar to a clan, but it wasn't founded by the Antediluvian, they are created in rather different methods, such as blood rituals or when a vampire simply doesn't inherit any of his sire's clan's features.

6. What sort of process is an embrace? What's diablerie? Why are both of these practices so commonly heard about? What's the view on these two?
The process of Embrace is when a vampire turns a mortal into another kindred by draining the mortal’s blood as they give them a few drops of their own, replacing their human blood with vampire one. This process is restricted by certain Sects and more freely used by others. The Camarilla forbids the embrace from happening without prior permission, while the Sabbat practice it more commonly to achieve superior numbers.The Sabbat’s ways of embracing their mortals are considered savage in a way, while the Camarilla’s are less violent and more ceremonial. Diablerie or Amaranth is a process of consuming other Kindred’s blood and it’s soul in order to become stronger. Camarilla strongly forbids this act, strictly upholding the Traditions and punishing anyone who does it by death.

7. What are the vampire generations? How far do they stray from the original? What are these generations? Does generation measurement exist within the society?
A generation is what marks how far a kindred is descended from Caine, supposedly the first generation of vampires. Each time a kindred embraces, the embraced generation is one more than his sire's. So if an eighth generation embraces someone, that someone is nineth generation.

The first generation was Caine, supposedly.
The second were his childer.
The third were the antedullivian, founders of the thirteen clans.
The fourth and fifth are the methuselahs, they are supposedly the most powerful kindred that roam these modern nights.
Sixth and seventh are considered by many to be elders of vampire communities.
The rest are ordinary titles with the exception of those 13th and below, as they are considered to be thin-bloods, as they are strayed so far away from Caine, the curse in their blood is weak. They are usually hunted down and ran off due to them being supposedly a sign of Gehenna, what vampires consider the end of days.

8. What are the two notable Anarch Revolts? What sort of effect did they have upon the vampires?
There were two Anarch revolts that reign a great impact. The First Anarch Revolt or The Great Revolt was propelled during the epoch of The Inquisition. Clan leaders were thirstily dismaying their neonates to The Inquisition, until one day a Brujah by the name Patricia expressed her opinion on this matter during a Venture Council meeting where many of the Elders didn’t share her stand on this. However, Patricia held onto her beliefs and formed a group of rebellious neonates in order to get her message across to the elders. Despite suffering heavy losses in this war, she successfully performed diablerie on Hardestadt who was one of the key players in the opposition. It’s a fact that through history, revolutions always devoured their own children, this time was no different and the revolt in Spain was put down due to poor communication and lack of resources among the rebels. The fight continued in Italy and Romania where Antediluvians of clans Lasombra and Tzimisce where diableried. The rebellion ended in 1493 with the Convention of Thorns after which Lasombra and Tzimisce formed the Sabbat.

The Second Anarch Revolt started in 1944 in Los Angeles after a Brujah called Jeremy MacNeil killed the LA Prince with his group of Anarchs that claimed territory from Mexico to San Jose which they called the Anarch Free State.

Spoiler for Story:
First Chapter.

Ashada was a very loyal girl, and by how the tradition works in Siria, someone had to pay her father a lot of money to marry his girl, so her father gave permission to a shady guy to
marry her, so she married at 18 years old.Her husband was hiding something away from Ashada, which made her curious of what he was hiding. One night she found some books about black arts and rituals, she got really interested in them and started reading the books. 1746, November, Ashada stood in her house as she was studying and practicing the black magic trying to learn it properly and perhaps even start trying her first ritual, she has been studying black magic for several  years now.Ashada might be shady, but she still had a good heart, and because of the books she had she was able to help the villagers with medicine and healing.The next day she had found her husband and parents dead.All she felt was anger, nothing else...She went back to the shop her father made, as she found his father’s shop being destroyed, Ashada heard some kids around the shop, she went inside,as she found three teenagers who were destroying the shop, the teenagers ran but Ashada cornered one of them and begun beating him down with her own fists , she bruised him a lot, and she did not stop until some villagers grabbed her.She was not caring much outside, but inside she was, she hated the fact that she was being ignored and loathed, which caused her to spend her time to learn and expand her knowledge about ancient occult and herbalism.She was colder day by day, she saw absolutely no point in any emotions.Ashada kept learning and gathering herbs.
The villagers did not want to kick her out of the village for one reason, she was the only healer from the whole area, some of them even started calling her “Witch of Damascus”.

Chapter Two.

Several months later, a woman wearing a black robe and nothing else on her was looking through the window straight at her for 3 minutes, Ashada was wondering what she was doing.Ashada knew that no-one would come and help her or rescue her and Instead she looked back showing absolutely no inferiority to that stranger.The next day, the stranger came again and was looking at her, and the third day   Ashada had enough of that and she yelled at the woman”WHAT?!”, the woman approached the door and entered the building, the woman asked her”Are you the Witch of Damascus?” Ashada responded with a nod.She presented her a scroll and asked for her input on the matter, given her reputation as a sorcery practitioner. She gave her insight on what appeared to be a ritual of sorts, the woman put a pouch of coins on the table and left.For years she felt like being watched, she did not see anything but her instincts made her cautious.She avoided leaving the house at night.
When Ashada hit the age of 30 the strange woman appeared once more near her shop,she greeted her by waving. She nodded back, waiting for the strange woman to come closer:”Hello there, I am Ajlal Azul, and I have came from a long distance, I’ve been watching you for a lot of time, and I came here to offer you something, I myself carry a curse and a gift and I shall give you both of them.” That offer intrigued Ashada a lot and she invited her inside- “What is your name?” the woman asked ”Ashada” she answered to her” My name is Asha…” Ashada did not even finish her sentence as the female grabbed her, Ashada tried to scream, but she wasn’t able to...Ashada tried to break free but her attempts weren’t successful. The female then sunk her fangs inside her neck, Ashada was able to feel the fangs piercing her skin. She felt tired, powerless so she let go of her arms...The female did not stop, she continued till all her blood was drained out of her system. The female put her down slowly as she fed Ashada a small bit of her blood...Ashada felt the pain, the change, it begun suddenly, her organs withered, she became undead, all her system was replaced, everything was just about blood.
After Ashada woke up after the embrace she quickly rushed into the town, looking for something to feed on, fortunately, the neighbours did not hear a thing. Ajlal Azul silenced the area so they wouldn’t get noticed...Ashada saw a knocked out man by her house, she rushed towards him as she sunk her fangs into his neck, Ajlal stood by the corner watching the scene in silence...Ashada was stopped moments after as she got thrown into a wall by her sire, the man was still alive, she could hear the heart pumping the remaining blood.The first nights were spent at the shattered shop, learning the  basics of unlife. How to survive the curse, how to control the inner beast and how to cling on to humanity.
  After months of traveling, they arrived at Alamut. She felt welcome there, and the feeling of being lonely disappeared completely. Ashada finally felt like she belonged somewhere. The Tremere blood curse had been cast on the clan a while before she was embraced, and her primary focus when she arrived was to help her brotherin’ to get rid of the curse.Ashada spent one more century in the fortress, expanding her knowledge of the occult, learning rituals and perfecting her disciplines.

Chapter Three.

While being in Alamut Ashada  and her Sire had received a quest from a primogen, they had to find an ancient book  regarding some information about the Tremere curse. The book was in Romania, in Transylvania. She was travelling for some nights and she was sleeping in a Motel. Once she arrived at the place she needed to she woke up and went outside as she saw two males awaiting for her outside:”Mind if you follows us?”The men asked:”I don’t.”Ashada responded as she begun following the men. She entered a house and she was lead by the men underground as she entered a shady room. In the room that she stood in she saw 5 other men at a table, with cups full of blood.Ashada nodded to them as she was looking at the man in the middle of the table.The man in the middle of the table nodded back as he speaked:”Hello there, I believe you’re one of the assassins, I have some tasks for you…”The man then reached his pockets, taking out a notebook full of quests. Ashada went near the table as she grabbed the notebook.Ashada didn’t do many quests at all, in fact she has done just some, Ashada was mainly focused on finding the book that she’s been sent after.She had spent several years trying to find the book, and after she did find the book and an ancient blade she met with her sire.Ashada went to a dark alleyway as she says: “ I found something, but I don’t think it’s enough…”Her sire emerged from the shadows as he grabbed the book from Ashada.”Good job my childe... Now you need to go back to the Fortress”After Ajlal Azul ended her sentence four men appeared in the alleyway as one of them said.:”The Baron knew that you’re not here to help us, assasins, now you may receive your final death!”one of them said as he withdrew his blades.Ashada quickly moved her hand to her back as she quickly withdrew her ancient sword. Her sire summoned two other small daggers, one of the vampires gave the other the “go ahead” sign. Ashada’s sire shouted:”Take the book and go back to Alamut, I will hold them off, go my childe, go!”, Ashada quickly ran from the scene as she hitched a ride going back to Alamut as fast as possible.Unfortunately for Ashada, a bloodhunt has been called for her, when she arrived to Alamut The Primogen told her to depart from the Fortress so they won’t get problems, she nodded as she left the mountain. She went back in Romania and went to the airport as quick as possible and took a flight to San Andreas. After her landing she called a cab and went into Red County, to Palomino Creek:”Well… This place might be nice, I hope no-one is gonna come for me.”She then went to the parking lot as she saw a sign”Motel here” she then proceeded towards the motel and bought a room.


Out of Character:

1.What kind of powers are you allowed to use in public? What stops you from using them?
Some powers are allowed to be used in Public while the others are not allowed to be used at all. Powers like Auspex, Presence and Dominate are allowed to be used in public because they aren’t visible, meaning that they won’t violate the Masquerade. Mental powers are often used by Kindred in order to get something that they want without breaking the Masquerade. The Masquerade is followed by Camarilla and enforced in regions of their rule, while Sabbat breaks it and discourages its members to follow it. Breaking the Masquerade will result in punishment for your actions against it. Powers like Celerity and Potence are not allowed to be used in public because they can draw suspicion by mortals.


2.Someone has discovered you. He's planning on making a statement within a week, you have all the time to prepare. What do you do? Consider consequences of every sort of action. Putting down more than one option increases your chances of getting accepted.
For me, there are 5 plans or options I can do in such circumstances. To think ahead, first of all, if that someone had made their presentation to whoever he presents his documentary of some sort, chances for him are being labeled as mentally ill regardless of how accurate his presentations are or perhaps listened to but disregarded afterward as the existence of vampires may sound ridiculous without a proper proof. Sure, those are the chances, but then when the word spread about it, delusional people would start to make connections, the witch-hunters will then take part of this quickly and hunt down the origin of the rumour. Nevertheless, what might actually happen is unpredictable and it is best to take action as possible. Here are my plans or options:

The first plan would be to approach the person that had "discovered" me. I would try to speak with the person and reason with their action. It may come in fishy at first, but if logic hit their head, the fact that someone wouldn't want to be accussed as something and have their name tainted because of those rumors, supposedly, then maybe they would drop the case and move on.
If Plan A didn't work, I'll move to Plan B: I would track the person's house and break in when they left, searching for their documents or clues regarding their findings about me, then destroy it. Or even better, burn the house down to make it seem as an accident without leaving any marks.
Plan C may be an extention to Plan B. I'd track the person down and ghoulify them. As soon as the bond kicks in, I'll manipulate them to drop their case on me.
Plan D would be to utilized Presence or Dominate. If my character don't possess any of such disciplines, I would ask an associate to do the work instead. Either use Presence convince the person to drop the case or use Dominate to do it and erase his memories after.
Plan E is the last resort, which is killing the person.


3.An officer walks up to you and tells you to stay put, you are a wanted individual. In the struggle you both shed a good amount of blood, what could possibly happen in this scenario and how further can you avoid these dangerous encounters? I would try to use my disciplines to persuade him to leave me alone. The situation also depends on how many people are in the area, and if some of them would possibly assist the officer I would comply with him until we were alone which would be the perfect time to break out of the cuffs by using a discipline. Making it easier for me to slip away without him calling for backup, since we both spilled an enormous amount of blood, I would attempt to run away as quickly as possible to a hidden location where I could heal. As for avoiding these dangerous encounters, I would start retracing every step I did to make sure that I have not done any mistake that would lead to me into another dangerous situation.

4.You mutter around town and notice a rather viscous looking hairy beast with claws stretching out of his arms. What could it possibly be and what could you possibly do about this?
I would just turn around and run, because I know that the werebeasts are capable of immense distruction and are born warriors.
5.You've been at the game for quite a while now. You are walking down a dark alley with your partner and three thugs come out of the shadowy corner, aiming their mundane weaponry at you. Should you be scared?Mundane weaponry isn’t something that I should be particularly scared of, however it is something that I should definitely consider dangerous despite my ability to soak bullet damage rather efficiently. Of course, this doesn’t mean that I should engage the thugs in a head on fight just because I’m more powerful than they are. The smartest move would be to see what they want from me and grant them their wish because petty crimes like this don’t in any way justify a possible violation of the Masquerade.


6.Considering your bloodline or clan, what sort of job would you be good at? Make a priority job and a side job in case you need one. Well, my main job would probably be a business owner and my side job a hitman.

Player information:

1.For how long have you been playing on Vampires, Werewolves and Humans roleplay? 4 years.
