Yep, I'm the ST of the game.  I'm perfectly happy to have another player!   :)   

It would be nice to have another PC working in the city, then I'd pretty much have enough players to start setting up events outside individual storylines.  Are you familiar with the various vampire clans?

Also, of the various political factions, which sounds most interesting to you?  You don't have to be part of the Circle of the Crone to be part of the Prince's government, although he'll consider you less of a threat that way.  (if you keep your head down.) 

We need a Cathian presence, come on it will make things interesting.

I don't intend to make her disappear, I think we are about to have a party of a most interesting sort at my haven. :D

Actually, I've mostly decided that the Carthian movement won't be present in Seattle, since I don't find the Carthians terribly interesting and we've already got a pretty good dynamic going with the Invictus/Circle of the Crone alliance vs. the Lancea Sanctum.

The power dynamics I've worked out (which will be getting to those entitled to them soon, I promise.)  do include a small (4-5 vampire) Ordo Dracul presence, which mostly acts as a political spoiler and occasional ally of the Lancea Sanctum.  (since they happen to worship the same God.  They don't neccesarily beleive in the same God, but they worship him alright.    ;))

There is one faction your missing the Unaligned. I was thinking as I PM'd a traveling unaligned Daeva bedding the Prince might choose to Embrace my character to get back at her new rival the half-sister. What better way then to curse her own half-sister and unleashing her on the city as a Daeva. And one biased against the Covenant system after all Daeva do see themselves as the only REAL Kindred the rest are imitation of their perfection. mwhahahahahahahahahahaha

Its that or kill my character but I like Edna. So its up to the Prince if you want to kill her she would agree to work with him on the cover up for taking care of her mother and a gentle death, that would make it easier and maybe she could make love to a nice woman once before she gets killed.

The CLAN is Mekhet, the BLOODLINE is Khaibit so you should seperate them. I like the character if they are ever in the same haunting grounds and I have a Daeva we have to get them in bed.

And to get blood find a mortal and drain them there you go, or in HER case stray dogs or rats would do.  ;D

Your character looks good enough, although your pistols specialty actually provides a +2 bonus when using a pistol.  (although it does not stack with your firearms specialty.)

As a bloodline member you're supposed to have a blood potency of 2.  (This costs 3 merit dots)  You can submit your character as is, but before you buy anything else with experience points you'll have to buy blood potency 2.  (it costs 16 xp.  You can get 5 or 10 xp by dropping your humanity if you like.)

Since your character does not have any resources, I'll say that you start with 2 stolen 9mm pistols (a Glock 17 [17 shot pistol, damage 2L] and a Berretta Model 92 [15 shot pistol, damage 2L])  A hand me down motor scooter (in black), A heavy leather trenchcoat (armor 1, 0 against firearms), 40 odd bullets, and a pair of sunglasses.

Your character most likely relies on public restrooms, dumpsters (in remote locations on days other than garbage day), and sewers to stay safe from the sun during the day, due to her lack of a permanent haven or any money.

16 exp? Isnt it only 8? Thats what your list says. And yay a pair of sunglasses ;D

Oh and your humanity starts at 7 right? I might sell 2 points to get more ex. As a thief i dont think it will be that useful to have anything above 5, and i would lose them fast anyway.

The cost of blood potency is 8 times the dots you're buying, not the dots you already have.  (sorry, this is a change made from the old world of darkness to avoid the inconvenient old trait/new trait cost dichotomy.)

Well i will pay for it with 3 merit points, then use the 10 exp from losing 2 humanity to buy three merit points to buy the ability i lost for the blood point.

Good enough for me! 

You'll probobly start the game with a contract from the prince, possibly the same contract that Zayaah's character is working.  If your character is even remotely social, you should most likely do a breif introduction in the Elysium thread (and possibly go and PM one of the victims if you want to do some quick play.) before heading off on missions and such.

Should I start a new area for the prince in the Haven, his study or office?  I got Megs character there but I don't know that jumping into Elizas thread would be quite right.  Unless we want to go for shock factor for his guest :)

Doesn't matter but shock can be good its not like megs character won't find out everyone is a vampire soon. But why not do your own thread as a thread?

Sorry all,

Lost the story here and am just not able to get the character into my head any more.  The prince bows out to the land of NPC.

Nothing against any of you or anything that you did, want to be sure that you all understand that.
