You're a 6th gen tzimisce neonate, with a missing sire. Your sire has left you to manage your keep on your own, and in one moon cycle from now, a very important vovivode meeting will take place. Your sire's role was as an advisor in this meeting - something that's gonna be hard to replicate. On the upside, your sire had good relations with the southern Vovivode, Vasimil, and you've sent out your squire to arrange a meeting, and you've sent away a servant to improve the housing in the keep. You're also restoring the old tower- this would benefit you greatly. You're currently at:8/25 materials, and 0/15 work. You're also looking into improving the lightning in the keep - a hard task considering the fear of fire, rötshreck. You've been studying the journals of your sire to gather information about the earlier vovivode meetings, and so far you've understood what they're about, and your relationship to the local vovivode "lord". It seems like he's a master of the old, kuldonic ways - blood magic. The cellar is still sealed, as you're worried what may be there. From what you can tell(hear), it's something big, and alive, but probably hibernating. Pastebin with general info: http://pastebin.com/FUDrRALV

As you stand outside your keep, you glance over the nearby landscape. - Your keep is set on a hill, with all forage cut down. to the north is a larger forest, and a smaller woods to the south. Where do you head? Both seem silent from afar, but you can guess that there's a bigger chance of finding larger animals to the north.>Northern forest>Southern woods.

>>343996>>continiue the rest of the night
>>343996>>head for the village to find easier prey
>>344011Yes - you could create more parts - but it's used from physically sculping. For example, as stated in power 5(b) you could graft one of -your- eyes onto, example a hand, but that'd leave you with only one eye. >>344013Not really, you'd be more fed, but would reshape into the same form. Anyhow, most of this discussion is more relevant whenever we get some points into vicissitude, isn't it?>>344011>>344019>head for the village to find easier preyYou thread out of the woods, and down to the small village. with almost everyone sleeping, and in the dark of the night, it's a trivial task to enter a house and feed of someone. you decide it'd best that you'd only draw a little blood, loosing people that are yours is never good. (+2 blood, 28/30)
>>344022Do we have anyway to become a higher generation vampire?
>>344032Higher generation is worse, as the blood gets weaker from the source (generally speaking), there are a few ways to get a higher generation though, if very rare.Now i'm assuming you mean lowering generation, and while we're already low generation, lowering it further is simple in theory - drain a lower generation vampire of blood completely. Now, this is generally speaking, a crime worse that rapemurder. I wont get into it right now, but it's more or less the ultimate taboo. >>344022You return back up to the castle, dawn isn't far off, but there's still time left. >look into the cellars>try to do something about the situation about dim light.

>>344055>otherLets look for a potential fifth generation vampire that might be an easy target. Just because its taboo doesnt mean you shouldnt do it.
>>344067This is, strictly speaking, suicide. We're still very young and weak, and overall, most vampires of our age are of higher generation - the average 5th generation vampire we'd find would be centuries, possibly millennia old.Topping it off, it's not like you inherently know what generation a vampire is, some don't even know their own. >>344063>hunt you head out of the castle, looking out over your domain.

(+2 blood, 30/30)how do you spend the rest of the night?You're reminded how dark it is in your keep, something could really be done about this, but so far, no idea is feasible. one way or another, you'd end up close to horrors of fire.>try to come up with a solution.

How do you start off the discussions?>Ask about him and your sire's, Ozrov's relation.>ask if he wants your support.>ask about what will undertake in the meeting.>ask about his goals in the meeting. >other(also, for clarification, write-ins are highly encouraged; Creative ones will be rewared with experience.)
>>352712I'd like to ask him of other vampires he knows, how powerful they are, etc.Get a feel for the vampire "net"
>>352712Formal introduction maybe?>>ask about what will undertake in the meeting.
>>352723Before starting the conversation you introduce yourself - (as who? Your mortal name, full name, or other) and he introduces himself as simply Vasimil, Metamorphist.(pick one)>Human name - Jaroslav>full name - Jaroslav Czcszsh>another, new name. >lie about your name (manipulation+etiquette)>I'd like to ask him of other vampires he knows, how powerful they are, etc.Get a feel for the vampire "net"After the proper formalities down, you're one lord to another. You ask him about the relations of the other vampires he knows. He starts off by telling you of those that are going to be involved in the meeting: Lazlo, you and himself, Preben, Old Vuk, and Lyubomir. All of them are obviously of tzimisce clan. Lazlo is the one in rule - the lord vovivode and second oldest, a good bit over a half millennia, he too is a metamorphist. Preben is much younger, only a bit past 150, but is savage in nature, while his skill in the flesh-shaping arts is lacking, he makes up for it brutality and surprising knowledge and skill, especially for his age. Old Vuk isn't the oldest, even if he's almost 400 years now - his name stems from his companions when he was but a neonate - now he's the only one left alive, Old wolf. The oldest is Lyubomir and Vasimil is uncertain about it's age but it's powers run strong as a koldun: blood mages with tremendous and ghastly power. Lyubomir is said to cause storms, and even rain fire upon their foes - who knows how much of it's that is true, and what other knowledge it may bear.It's noted that Vasimil appears to carry a great deal of respect towards Lyubomir, seemingly for good reason. Apart from that, he says that in the deepest of woods may pass Gangrel - the bestial clan, they're fierce and free, but to some extent respect the Real lords of the land - they'd not live a confrontation on our terms. >Ask about him and your sire's, Ozrov's relation.>ask about what will undertake in the meeting.>ask about his goals in the meeting. >other
>>352762>>full name - Jaroslav Czcszsh>Ask about him and your sire's, Ozrov's relation.>ask about what will undertake in the meeting.
>>352783>Ask about him and your sire's, Ozrov's relation.You wonder how he and your sire was related, and he tells you that Ozrov was a metamorphist too, but that was not only the cause. It seems like Preben and old Vuk has some sort of cooperation. They're both a bit threatening in nature, as well as warriors. and they had opposed both of us for a some time, nothing too obvious, but the slight risk was always there.>ask about what will undertake in the meeting.He tells you that it's mostly formalities that always has happened, but it's a good excuse to publicly spy and announce, something that everyone is clearly aware off. However, bigger announcements are also made from time to time, if we need to be united outwards, for example. There is also a treaty of non-agression. weapons are not to be brought, and natural ones... shaped away. >ask more closely about Vasimil's and orzov's cooperation>ask about his goals in the meeting. >ask about Lazlo's authority. >other
>>352813>>ask more closely about Vasimil's and orzov's cooperation>>ask about his goals in the meeting. >>ask about Lazlo's authority.
>>352829>>ask more closely about Vasimil's and orzov's cooperationHe tells you that he works, or worked together mostly for metamorphosis procedures - while not about the integral parts, but rather about how flesh can be molded - specifics and ideas. for example, he holds out one of his hands, and you see a tiny eye on one one of his fingertips. After that he asks you, about what you're out after, apart from bare survival. this seems to be both related to the meeting, and unlife in general. >power>knowledge>safety>other(write-in)
>>352905>>knowledgeVasimil nods, apparently sated with your answer. While power is what matters, power without knowledge is loosely held. A good choice for one of your age. He asks about your knowledge of vissictude.>truth: None (write in answers)>Lie: some powers. (write in how to word this) (roll manipulation+expression 1d10)
>>352930>>truth: NoneI haven't read the previous threads so I don't really know if our sire gave us a sit down to explain our new life and shit.
>>352934( haven't read the previous threads so I don't really know if our sire gave us a sit down to explain our new life and shit.)He explained our state, how to create ghouls, blood bond, and has taught us in auspex, to see beyond sight- and we have developed potence on our own we have some years of experience as a vampire, but under our masters wing. We guess this is some learning experience - to manage on our own or die. Most curiously he didn't teach about vicissitude. )Also, don't forget to check the pastebin/our character sheet)>>truth: NoneVasimil looks a bit dissapointed, but not all too suprised, and he draws back a bit, growing more cold."A shame. It is our greatest gift, what makes us lords above all. However, considering your sire, it should be possible for it to wake on its own." You can tell that this isn't really going anywhere at this rate, and you signal for your keeper to bring in the meal. Presenting your meal. while not the most well fed, she'd still be a good meal."You may take however much you like, she wont be missed."Vasimil nods, and places a hand on her head, gripping it all around. With a horrifying shreik from the girl, vasimil makes it obvious that he's feeding, and not in a gentle way, but it's clear that he gains pleasure from it, as the veins on his arm bulge while she's rather quickly drained by her blood, falling down into a dry husk. He gives you a eerie smile, adding that he could send you some of his papers on modifications if you pick up the fleshcrafting arts - a obvious sign of gratitude, Vovivodes are rarely generous. You can tell that he wants this alliance to work - do you call him out on it?> Call him out, ask for his intentions.> Ask ask more about (x)> Ask if he has connections with someone that could teach you Latin.>other
>>352992(I'm taking a pause for making dinner)
>>352992>> Ask if he has connections with someone that could teach you Latin.> Call him out, ask for his intentions.
>>353037>> Ask if he has connections with someone that could teach you Latin.> Call him out, ask for his intentions.You call him out, and try to discern his motives, but he masterfully diverts the conversation elsewhere, and far too late you feel he's playing you here. The conversation has moved on, and you got nothing out of him. However, he seems to know someone you could speak a word about to learn Latin. he gives you a note, apparently writing on it with his finger. It seems like he's satisfied with your meeting, and he tells you he'd take his leave. Seems like he doesn't trust you, or doesn't want to rest in your keep - after all, it's rather rude. Tzimisce are hospitable, but staying overdue gives a debt. He leaves your castle fairly shortly afterwards.
>>353225(thread has hit autosage. I wont be here tomorrow, but can probably do some on monday.Should i put up a new thread now? We got xp to spend - and you should probably think over your choices.)
>>353233How much xp we got?
>>353333We got 10xp Costs can be seen in the pastebin.
>>353338Is viscitude an inclan discipline?
>>353352Animalism, auspex, vicissitude are clan disciplines. Potence/celerity/fortitude aren't, but learn-able inherently because of our strong blood. There are other disciplines too, but not that we can inherently learn - we'd need to find someone with it, and learn it from them.
>>353381Then we should start on viscitude. After all, this dude is going to give us some tips if we do.
