That works just fine, and you've already got your character sheet, so you're good to go.  I'm still waiting on SteveJ101 to get back from his absence and complete a character sheet, and I'm also waiting on character sheets from Ananasi and Shadowz.

Once I get all that squared away, and determine whether the game goes in noncon or extreme, the game can begin.

We'll be getting started once two players, Shadowz and Stevej88, get their characters in.  I might be willing to start the game earlier if I can get some support from Seraph and Meggymagos, who will be playing against those two and will be most affected by starting without them.

I don't mind when we start. Will my character just notparticipate until Stevej gets back and can start too? how would that work?

You would most likely end up playing with the circle of the crone vampires as they hemmed you in for the pleasure of the prince.

I'm not sure how Seraph feels about starting without Shadowz though.  We'd also need a final word about an extreme rating.

Alright, do any of the clans and/or political factions interest you?  Would you like to play a vampire, a ghoul, or a mortal?  If you're playing a ghoul, you don't have to decide on a clan, and if you're playing a mortal, you can skip out on vampire politics completely until you become lunch.

Depends on the theme/focus of the rp.

Though i do like lawful, dutyful Vampires. I believe one of the Clans in the setting was like that no? Honor and the likes were valued. A civilized clan.

The theme is political conflict.

As for civilized vampires, there's two political factions (covenants) of that nature in the game, the Invictus, who believe that vampires should rule from the shadows by a hierarchical system, and the Carthians, who believe that vampires should form a symbiotic community with humans. 

As for a civilized, honor based clan, the Ventrue clan is most focused on honor, a tendency reinforced by their trademark power of dominate, a mind control power.  The toreador bloodline are also into honor, and I'm sure there are a lot of honor focused bloodlines if you wanted to get really specific. 

In the setting though, of being civilized and feeding on humans, a vampire can only accomplish one of these things, since a careless vampire is a dead vampire.  If duty appeals to you, you may be interested in the covenant of the Lancea Sanctum, a Catholic vampire faction who focus on herding humans like cattle and making sure vampires use their immortal lives responsibly.

The Invictus and Carthians seem quite interesting.
Is there one that is best described as fascist (conservative, disciplined, expansionist)?

That would be The Invictus.  Everything means something to them,  the clothes they wear, the flowers they carry,  jewelry,  everything conveys some hidden meaning.

Pretty much, although expansionism goes against traditional Invictus mores and makes you into more of a young turk type of character.  That can provide conflict and spice to the game though.

I've read up a bit on the factions. The Order of Dragul seems interesting (sworn of the Axe) but above all the Invictus. They seem quite Machiavellistic and pragmatic and anti-anarchy. I like that.  ;D
I think i'll go for that faction. Are there already other players planning or having made a char in that faction?

Currently, RubySlippers is playing the future food source of the leader of the Invictus.  The Invictus are the number 2 faction in the city, their influence far outstripping their rather paltry numbers.

Yummie. Lol.
I'll try to read up a bit more on powers/atmosphere etc.
I remember having a 2+hour conversation with some rpers of the pre WoD setting. (they played Werewolf and Requiem) And a lengthy one just about Requiem with a larper that worked at the hobbystore i go to.
I found it quite fascinating.

Food source, consort, lover and likely somewhat useful asset vassal she could get a meal from any rabble thank you very much.

 >:(

LOL

Another Invictus- excellent.

And I was thinking of a role for my character I was kind of thinking of exploiting new markets I can't gain power in the game stealing assets from Elders and it might threaten their other interests, so I will likely focus on her. First she needs a herd eventually animal blood will not suffice and it tastes yucky anyway and she need ample retainers for her duties to be fulfilled. And of course hone her skills perhaps earning a college degree and develop a modest asset or two. I have a few ideas of good accredited schools that offer bachelors degrees so that might be a good option, a non-traditional distance learning education for role-playing purposes.

She can't the structure makes her the vassal of her Sire and your the vassal of her and then your character Sire if he is in the city. So she would not likely want to attack another Invictus they have mediators for that to avoid such messy problems. In any case she is not overly ambitious her role is to keep her Sire well fed, happy and have one vampire she can utterly trust.

Odds are your character and mine could be friendly enough with each other.
