I'm interested in running a V:TM Game for people. It wouldn't be that big (I hope) maybe 10 people total. It would be a self run game, IE the players run it while I watch and make sure things don't get out of hand. :3 It'll take place in my birth town of Rochester, New York.

~~MAKE YOUR SHEET AS LARGE AS POSSIBLE~~, include history, equipment, concepts and the likes; please this is vital if we are to come up with good and fun Story Lines. Please post at least one goal your character would like to accomplish while in Rochester. This will help both you and the STs figure out things to do in the future. The more detailed the goal the better.
~You must start out with all of your in clan disciplines as a starter character unless you take the merit Additional Discipline. Please talk to the ST before taking this merit. We do not want to see things like Serpentis, Quietus, etc at all on your sheet. You can only use the merit for physical disciplines.
~I want to see people playing more then one clan. IE, it would be a bad thing if there was 14 brujah and 2 Pander.... I think people can play more then what they just see as combat junkies...remember you do get XP for role playing and not just Combat. This is Vampire and not Dungeons and Dragons.
~When you make your character feel free to purchase 1 extra Discipline only but it cost and it can not be paid for out of the 4 points you get unless you take the merit Extra Discipline, where you then have to get ST approval as well as putting it in your back ground when purchasing it.
~We do not want to see a character with many stats of 5. Please keep in mind a stat of 5 would be an Olympic athlete or something similar. It takes years and years to get one. One unexplainable 5 or a few on your sheet will restrict approval. Round the character out. Don't take what you think will be rolled and ignore the rest, pretending you have it. It is poor role playing and won't be accepted. (IE: Acting like you have a good Etiquette when you have none posted on your sheet).
~Secondary Thaumaturgy paths cost five Freebie points each dot, your primary path equals your Thaumaturgy rating.
~Willpower can be no higher than 7 to start for standard characters. Recommended Willpower is in-between 5-7 from how stressful the existence of the Sabbat is.
~ No more then 2 dots in a blood magic path on creation. Also speak to an ST before taking some of the rarer paths giving a good explanation why they should be allowed. At the moment, blood magic paths are being restricted due to how rare they are within the sect.
~ The Sabbat is the sect of the thin blooded. Because of this we do not want to see anyone above 10th generation. This is what diablerie is for. Also, from how many high powered characters there are on the chat you can only legally diablierize your way up to 8th generation unless you speak with an ST about it first.
~Sabbat normally don't become Influential in mortal society. For this reason you must have ST approval before owning any kine, establishments or holding an Influence.
~Keep in mind you have very evil STs who relish in making things difficult for you IC when you take flaws. We-will- be using them to their fullest potential and then some. So by taking Hunted or Enemy or anything else be prepared to pay for those freebies you get.
~A mortal or ghoul who is Embraced gains no immediate Attribute, Ability, or Discipline gains as a result of the Embrace, they are simply a vampire. All changes will be as a result of XP gain/expenditure (which should be accelerated as the childe is now in a sink-or-swim situation).
~Keep in mind ghouls and mortals will not be treated with any respect what-so-ever. They are nothing more than objects to be used and tossed away. Because of this we discourage creation of either. If you would like to play one we won't disallow it - but consider this your warning that what happens, happens.
~We want to see realistic character here people. Please read the books you have and learn the way to play something you want to.
~Characters may start on a path but some are restricted like The Path of Cathari, The Path of Lilith, and The Path of Caine must be gained IC.

~Night Clubs in the city must have ST approval and must have the lay out and the security system to go with them. Rochester is a hostile city.
~Havens must reflect the resources of the vampire. Nor does it mean that a vamp with resources 5 have to live it up in the Ritz sections of town. A person with resources 1 can not live in a mansion on Park Ave unless given a room by someone with the resources to afford it. Also on your character sheets we would like to see monthly expenditures for your resources and yes if you have money left over it does carry over.
Combat on the street
~Like every other city there ARE cops out and yes they are on foot even at night (this knowledge comes from living in the city for 21 years). Not all beat cops can be every where all the time though. Do not be surprised if the cops get called should a fight break out, there are citizens around. Be prepared to be disciplined for using your disciplines on the street. (WE DO NOT want the Cammerilla knowing where we are!)
Will be posting more if I get an interest. :3
