*cracks knuckles and tries to slip back into oWoD mentality*

first of all, a bit on the Clans...

Clanless are not exactly numerous in the Dark Ages, but they still exist... both Caitiff (Camarilla Clanless) and Pander (Sabbat Clanless, named thus much later than the DA) can range from cannon fodder to powerful princes (naturally those are rare) and the vast majority of them is of high Generation (which is a bad thing) ...most don't like them much and this leads some of the elders to speak about the Time of Thin Blood (which eventually builds up to Gehenna)

Lasombra... a cynic might say they are simply Ventrue with shadow powers... and if we were talking about new WoD, that would be true... but in old WoD, Lasombra are what few Ventrue dare to be, usually with a religious twist

now, regarding mythology and customs...

Gehenna has been prophecised to happen when the Antediluvians wake up and practically eat everyone else, but as Baklava said its a modern nights thing (and its actually one of the events that DID happen when the old WoD came to an end)

most Sabbat members (especially those recruited from Camarilla) have to dig themselves out of fresh graves... after being tossed there unconscious (which is why in modern times new Sabbat recruits are referred to as "shovelheads" ...you can fill in the blanks)

and a bit on mechanics...

Fortitude (damage reslience) means they have less chances of getting hurt, pain tolerance is, i suspect, much like with normal people... some feel pain easier, others can handle more... but a vamp with Fortitude can survive for a second or two in the sun (and hurting like hell) while one without will be like Twilight vamps and go sparkly... just before they burst into flames

Protean (the shapechanging discipline) comes with two default forms, wolf (fight) and bat (flight) ...my oWoD-fu is a bit rusty, but i think even then you could learn new forms


as for my Fiend?

heh Father

oWoD comes with a pretty... complex overarching story, the dreaded Metaplot... most setting stuff is dictated by it

which reminds me of a saying among us WoD vets

"owod reads a lot better than it plays, nwod plays a lot better than it reads"

Well you can choose your own disciplines if you play with Caitiff, yes. But they will most probably be rather limited, and you will have a severe social stigma from other vampires - they usually tend to either kick the Caitiff for fun or, at best, pity them.

And yes, Dark Crystal, damage resistance means that they receive less damage, like Lith said. Vampires can feel pain like everyone else. Whether they got used to it is another thing.
Though I think they feel less pain from things like batons and bullets, and more from, for example, fire (all vampires also have Rotschreck - the fear of fire and sunlight).

Ok, how about this then:

A vampire outcast (I still have to think of a name... as usual) who was embraced by a Tremere vampire. However, something went wrong in the embrace and his sire chose to abandon him because he had no use for the abomination he created. Left alone the poor outcast soon discovered he maintained his sire affinity to some of the Tremere disciplines. Off course he could not learn the clan's blood magic on his own but in his long travels he encountered another Caitiff who taught him the ways of a special Caitiff discipline - Kinetisicm.

Now he wonders the world in his pursuit to gain enough knowledge and power to become an important part of society despite his thin blood.

Disciplines:
Auspex, Dominate, Kinetisicm.

Well, start from determining where you wanna be from. Develop your character well in your mind, and the name will find itself.

Well I was thinking that you could start wherever you like and make up your main quest by yourself, at least in the beginning. It's not like you can't travel around. You can get the storyline going anyway, and meet around during your chases, travels etcetera (I recon that in these sorts of RPs the players make the plots themselves, and that all those plots will almost certainly turn into a single global main plot after a few pages).

@Father
There's always Lith around as the co-boss of the RP

Alrighty then, I finally found some free time to start
Hope you like the first post. It's of course only the prologue, none of the persons mentioned would be my character. Though I might write about them from time to time.

As well as my charming sidekick Lith.

The way I see it, you don't need to respond to that. Just write your own story, we'll find a way to meet you up with the others later.

Exactly. You don't need to get involved with the main storyline yet, write about some smaller adventures until the big stuff happens. And until you get the "feeling" for roleplaying There's really nothing to it, you just write about stuff that happen to your character. Like a diary or short story or something. This first post can be regarded as an introduction cinematic or something.
You don't have to know the lore any more past what I wrote in the first post of this thread. And even not all of that. Remember, we're not making some canonical novel here, we're primarily having fun. There's no reason to be afraid or to think we're better equipped to roleplay than you.
