Sorry I haven't been responding here. I've had a very busy second half of the week (three graduation ceremonies to attend in three nights, in-laws' anniversary party yesterday, and earlier today a crippling migraine), but I will be jumping back into this game planning forthwith. Very sorry to see some people having trouble coming up with a character idea. If you'd like me to run a few by you, I'd absolutely love to do so.
For instance, a Brujah Crusader, or a Saracen Brujah defending his holy city. A Toreador troubadour, a Lasombra priest obsessed with theology and the nature of blood (perhaps a precursor to the Sabbat?), a Nosferatu cutpurse and saboteur selling military secrets to both sides, a French noble sired by a Ventrue along the path to the Holy Land who is attempting to find redemption for his cursed state, or an Assamite who is miffed at the thought of an influx of Cainites into his Domain. If you think these are too stereotypical, take the reverse role: Instead of the noble being sired by a Ventrue, make it a Gangrel. Instead of a Lasombra priest, go with Malkavian or Nosferatu ("the Hooded Priest will hear your confession now..."). Instead of a Nosferatu cutpurse, what about a Toreador cat burglar? Instead of an Assamite assassin, let a Toreador or Ventrue take on the role.
