Well there is enough interest, so puts on my Storyteller Hat.
(Note if the Supreme Court rules for lifting gay marriage bans I'm eloping asap, to get married, so it might delay starting the game.
Anyway we will be using Vampire using elements from earlier games but V20 ,the 20th Anniversary, do a standard Camarilla Sect character this can include ONE Independent including Old Clan Tzimisce who must be in the Camarilla with a tested bloodline as in your line is known to be with the Sect for centuries.
Okay two house rules:
1. You can use Obfuscate while in combat, and try to maintain it, this gives clans with it a very big advantage, but before you get ideas it has limited use with Celerity as in you can but the Celerity is limited to three dots under the Obfuscate so Obfuscate 5 can use Celerity only at 2 Dots.
2. You cannot start with out of clan disciplines. Caitiff must explain why they have certain disciplines usually it must be from the media so vampires in modern genre are different than hammer film ones or ones from legends. But you my make up your own and spend up to three dots in it, work with me on that. I suggest only do one dot in a new one and find two others you like.
3. No Background can be higher than 2 Dots save Mentor (Sire or someone in power likely your clan Primogen) and Resources and the Dark Adepts below have an Elder and a small number of Kindred enough to hold some position but are not in any office, its not their normal route to power however.
The major clans have members here and quite a few Caitiff many came in forming Coteries with some Camarilla Ancilla and one old enough to be an Elder Mary Abbey not strong in blood but is old, quite old, so wields lots of brute power.
1. Baali actually are fine in my game, but must be discrete so I have a variant bloodline for you but no regular Baali.
Are an offshoot started recently in the 20th Century that gave up the usual paths to power for honoring the Dark Majesty using scholarly aims and corrupting society, with style, and reveling in their immortality. Most are wealthy, gain wealth to gain influence in society and in promoting immorality until the Final Battle with god.
Concepts: Cult Figure, Porn Mogul, Prostitute, Influential Horror Writer, Idol of Sin (famous sinner), Archeologist
Disciplines: Dominate, Presence, Thaumaturgy (is not as formidable as the Tremere they are a clan but aren't bad at it)
Clan Weakness: Same as the Parent Clan, they are seen as Baali just a different approach.
The Camarilla has two elders of this line and their offspring, they don't wield much overt power the Tremere tend to hold them down as do their ally clans but their influence can be like a shadow web slipped into many areas they can tug when needed, at least when they reach Ancilla status. Only one has any real power and in the newly reclaimed New York City the mysterious figure Shadowbraid who managed to undermine the Sabbat for the onslaught by the Camarilla. He is said to be of the sixth generation - now - after diablerie.
He's not the Prince who is a Ventrue but his position is very - interesting. And he Sired his butt off during the chaos so you could be one of his children. Note you must learn Thaumaturgy largely on your own so a high Occult with Blood Thaumaturgy is likely vital to advance in your Art. On the plus side you can innovate new Paths just no Dark Thaumaturgy or Pacts its against the founding circles core philosophy.
Your not going to start in New York but in another retaken city, Tijuana, as part of a Camarilla offensive to push out the Sabbat from the United States so if that floats your boat let me know.
