          First, the little disclaimers.  Anita herself proves to be the most obvious exception to almost every metaphysical "rule" in the books.  It keeps her full of awe and wonder to be sure, but it also keeps the spotlight firmly upon her and makes her vastly powerful (if complicated and busy)...  (Do we each get "surprise powers," or is that more an NPC edge? Heh.)

Check, I got that part :)  As for the surprise powers, I was thinking about people putting up ideas of powers(within limits) that they wouldn't technically want for their own characters, and I would randomly throw them at people as time goes by.  So the powers could be the proverbial wrench in this game that people get and gain randomly.  Ehhh even as I write this it sounds too complicated, so I'll be thinking about this, and of course everyone's opinions are welcome here.

Next, there is only a limited and experimental understanding of what sorts of triumvirates are possible.  There are only a few in the entire series.  It's one of the ongoing mysteries, revealed in bits and pieces here and there.  They do seem to all involve vampires (or similar leaders), weres, and a servant or follower of the vamp...    I don't remember all of the details so well now, but the triumvirates are mentioned on various web pages.  Doing the best I can...           

I'm not entirely clear about the question.   A servant can have marks without joining a triumvirate.  The marks just add power (and usually, control from above).  Of course, that would be useful (probably necessary?) for a triumvirate to form, too.  But a triumvirate isn't the only or even the main use of the marks, as far as I can remember.  I don't think there is any automatic connection between number of marks and triumvirate, except that those most likely to become triumvirates share a certain common ground and power level.  Thus they are rather more likely to share more marks than others, just on those grounds.  Other than that... 

I can understand that, I haven't read the books, but I know enough spoilers in the series that I know for sure that the marks technically are not related to having a triumvirate.  Which is something I should have remembered before asking this question lmao.

Quote
Leaving alone the general usefulness of the marks...  I don't think many plan out a triumvirate per se.  I got the impression that sometimes, they just find that they relate and can share power in ways that count as one.  I think some might also wish to have one and not be able to, or not imagine it possible for their joint personalities or power levels.

Technically, it also depends what you count as a vampire mark.  Anita isn't precisely a vampire, but she can feed on sexual energy and exchange energy with Damien.  Jean-Claude considers this basically vampire power.  I think, she eventually has her own second triumvirate with Damien and Nathaniel.

See I figured the Anita getting 'vampire powers' where directly connected to the fact that she was in a triumvirate with Jean Claude, but than if that was the case, I guess Richard would have had the same powers bestowed on him.  And without giving too much away, she does eventually have a second triumvirate with Nat and Dam. 

So all in all, I'm thinking in this game, Yes the MOTC, and any vampires(although I don't technically know if this is only pertaining to high level vamps) could have a relationship(both romantically or not) that involves marks, that is not exclusive to a triumvirate.  So I guess what I'm getting at is, that the MOTC's Pomme de sang could have marks with her master; and in affect become his human servant. 

Wow I don't know if everything I've said above makes perfect sense, if not I'll try to stop myself from rambling and clarify anything that was unclear.  Thanks a lot Kylie, for clearing that up for me. 

Chloe and BrumakI agree, Ryan Reynolds is very very yummy!

          I don't know...  I understand it's inspired a bit by the books but...  Personally, I get a certain flavor in mind for my characters.  It might change, but I'm in no rush and I prefer that to be through something to do with them too, not just dropping in from outside.  I don't really care for them to be pushed in random directions that I didn't get to decide.  And I just tend to think if one person sees a situation as trying, there's a fair chance someone else just won't want to mess with it.  Others may like to have things tossed up more for themselves...  I'm kinda fussy.  ::)

I agree, which is why I was like 'ummm yeah' no about it, right after I wrote it down.

Hello all! :D

It looks like we now have an Ulfric. Are there any other slots that still need to be filled before the rp starts?

Offline auroraChloe

i am out of town for a week starting saturday... so my entrance into the game will be later.
hope that vampire master doesn't get too hungry   :P

Offline Random Civilian

Ooo, have fun while you're out. :D

And I'm sure we'll find some way to keep him occupied if he starts to get... bitey. XP

Okies Chloe, the game wont be starting for a bit, so no worries.  Have fun with wherever/whatever your doing :)

And yay, we now have two more characters added to the list, which is awesome!  I really want to fill in some of the WereRat spots, but if no one is interested, than I could change it to another were group.  What do you all think?  Check in here with your opinions on if I should change the wererats to another group, and suggest what were group you would like to take their place.  There's a list in the first post of this thread, but keep in mind there might be more than what's listed there, those are the ones I'm aware of.

We now, technically, have enough to start the game, but it wont be up for a bit.  I'm thinking after Chloe get's back.

If you're still looking for a Usurper I would be more than willing to write up a profile.

Considering tossing in a hat for a Tiger Queen's bodyguard. PM me what I need.

That.Would.Be.Awesome! 

I was actually cementing it in my mind that the Usurper would end up being a NPC, but it would be so much better if it was character played.  So feel free to write a profile up and send it to me via PM, if I approve it I'll give you the go ahead to post in the character thread :)

Which now brings me to another topic.  We now need at the least one other vamp who sides with the Usurper, so if anyone is interested please tell us.

Villain, I'll definitely be sending you a PM.

Sweet, we now have our Usurper!  I was thinking of changing the rats to Hyena's, what do you all think?

Offline Random Civilian

Yay for having an Usurper! :D  Having Hyenas instead of rats could be interesting.

Yups, of course we do, But I'm not going to be opening the game until next week.  So I figured advertising for more characters until than, would be a great way to spend the time.

I also want to talk threads.  Lately all my games have focused on one thread, which is something I prefer so that a game doesn't end up being too spread out.  But for this one I'm thinking two or three might work out.  I want one specifically for Sid's house, which will house all/most of her tigers(at least the PC's), A thread for the Vampires main base(Which needs to be determined), and a thread for Vagas itself. 

In the Anita Blake books, the vampire head quarters is the Circus of the Damned, I'm sorta thinking that in  this game it could be a casino that's vampire themed maybe?  It's up to those playing vampires.  When this arc ends, and we have some character development, I can open up another thread for the wolves, since the second arc focuses on them.

Thoughts, questions?
