I'm going to start a Vampire game soon. I'll have the Character Creation tutorial up soon. Plus a brief run down on the various clans and convenats, unless someone can find them online.

Hey Shaun, what will be the timeline of your game, and where will it be set at, like Australia or somewhere else?
I'm thinking I wanna play too! :vl

I was thinking modern day and in a Generic city, or NYC or Boston as I know those two cities a little, but probably a generic.

Oh great too see V:tR also hitting the PbP.
Too bad I can't participate. Hope you all have a good time!
NEW KID; this RPG is waaaaay cool!
I'm lucky to won the books myself, and the Werewolf book also.

Sure thing, Kid. Welcome aboard. People, please let me know how much you know about the WW Vampire game. Do you have the books, have you played the old system, ect? This will let me know how much detail to go into the Character Creation Document I'm writing up.

I know pretty much nothing about the game, although I like the sound of it. I do know about clans and convents from my rampage across the internet.
Orgaloth - February 17, 2006 01:31 AM (GMT)
No problems. I do write ups (or rip them from something) of the clans, covenants, and powers then.
Orgaloth - February 26, 2006 06:44 AM (GMT)
Sorry people, I had a hiccup in my scheduale. I should have the character creation doc done by next weekend. Otherwise just PM and i'll help you out.
Orgaloth - March 12, 2006 02:45 AM (GMT)
Ok. I still will be running the game. If you know how to create a character, go ahead. I'll open up a game thread and you can post some things there. I'm happy to get the game started, and have the characters made as we go through.
Orgaloth - March 17, 2006 06:21 AM (GMT)

Here is a breakdown of a City's heirarchy.
The Prince: The head honcho. The vampire in charge. This is usually the toughest, smartest and the biggest badass. Usually. Itís not always so. Sometimes they are just the smartest, or just the toughest, but these Princes donít last long. Princes normally rule their city with absolute power, but some are just figureheads.
The Seneschal: The Princes right hand. When the Prince isnít around, the Seneschal steps in. Heís usually responsible for the night to night running of the city.
The Herald: Very simply the Princes mouthpiece. When the Prince wants to announce something, the Herald will make sure you hear it.
Suspected to be Lyre (no formal appointment)
The Primogen: These Kindred speak for the benefit of their Covenant and serve as the Princeís advisors. If united, they can topple Princes, and in some cases they rule from behind the scenes. For the most part a Primogen is an elder.
Gabriel (Ordo Dracul)
Julius (Lancea Sanctum)
Sean McDonnell (Circle of Crone)
Richard Black (Invictus)
The Priscus: is the informal head of a specific clan. Generally it just happens to be the one vampire that keeps speaking up on matters for their clan, other times they are forced into the position. It has no actual standing in the court, but most Princes will listen to what a Priscus has to say.
Jessabelle Smythe (Mekhet)
The Whip: This is the 2IC of the Primogen, although they generally wonít be asked to sit on the Primogen council with their Primogen canít make the meeting. Some Priscus have Whips as well.
The Harpy: this is a very powerful position. The Harpy can make or break a vampireís standing in a city. Although a Princeís Harpy has more power then the Primogenís Harpy, you donít want to cross either. They officially represent a whoís in and whoís out, and what positions and opinions are popular this season. A well known Harpy can sway public opinion faster with a biting comment then some Princes can with a solid decree.
Again this seems to be Lyre
The Sheriff: The police investigator, enforcer, and inquisitor, the sheriff is responsible for enforcing the Princes Laws and dictates, for brining outlaws before the Prince for judgement and for carrying out sentences.
The Hound: Simply put, the muscle of the Prince. If the Sheriff is a policeman, the Hound is an assassin or leg-breaker. He doesnít investigate or question, he just punishes. Sometimes the role of Sheriff and Hound are merged into one position.
The Master of Elysium: A combination of Master of Ceremonies and groundskeeper. This fellow maintains the Elysiumís. He is also entrusted in enforcing the law of non-violence on Elysiae, and will work with the Sheriff and hound to help in this endeavour.
Sam and Ragman share this role.
