    Can someone help me remember how feeding/blood pools work?

    Are we losing from our blood pool each night? I thought at one point we rerolled the pool at the start of the night possibly but I'm not sure if it's only power use that drains it or if it's something that needs to be replenished every few nights (and my rulebook pdf is on my computer at home)

    I believe we lose one blood point a night, but I think a bunch of people hunted night before last. Not sure, though

    Some abilities use blood as well, namely augments like Potence and Celerity. Otherwise, yes, one per day.

    Going to burn my stored XP to bump Celerity to 2 after much debate. As Deke doesn't currently have any dots in Intimidate bumping Presence doesn't make a lot of sense.

    Also I suppose with some time off Deke would examine the fangs from Emmett's box. Would he have a chance to know what it means without a Sire who is talking to him?

    Depending on what he does, maybe.

    Probably better to just ask before making a roll that doesn't make sense.

    Does feeding have to be dex and stealth? Or can you get someone separated to feed as long as it's not something they could easily prove was a vamp (e.g. too drunk to remember, etc...) as to not break the masquerade?

  • cj iwakuracj iwakura The Rhythm Rogue The 25th WardRegistered User regular
    You can definitely use a social approach if preferable, but it carries its own risks.

    It's also permissible to borrow someone's Domain for your roll. Usually you need to ask, though, or it's a grave insult.

    I decided to go with Subterfuge 3 and Firearms 3, I figure I'll ask one of the crew for Auspex tips in the hopes of getting it eventually

    I'll write something up tomorrow for Lizzy. RL is still brutal on me, atm.

  • Grunt's GhostsGrunt's Ghosts Registered User regular
    I'm going to assume based on Lizzy's background as a former Anarchy Rebel poster child that she knows or believes that Kenneth's press conference was actually a declaration of war.

  • AustinP0027AustinP0027 Registered User regular
    Can I just say....I feel like Ardent and I are playing different games.

    I'm all "Vampire! Let's play! Oh no, bad guys!" while he's over there spouting lines that would come out of any novel with ease.

    It's like I'm playing checkers and he's over there doing quantum physics.

    Well done sir!

    Pretty much anyone familiar with the city politics right now, or vampire politics in general, can probably figure that out.

    Also, I'm going to improvise whatever was said in the letter, unless you have specifics.

    I have been known to write professionally, but thanks, it's always nice to be complimented.

    I'm not sure if Deke's happy about how this turned out or not. It exposed Julia's weakness before the entire Court when she threatened a neophyte coterie (which is something no Primogen should stoop to, let alone the Prince), but with any luck that particular misstep can be covered for at least until there's some kind of other plan in place.

    Probably doesn't matter because the roll failed miserably, but for my roll I didn't use the friendly face success of 7 as I wasn't sure if that applied or not.

    Also, more of a clarifying question, I see that my Etiquette has "acting" tagged, but I think that was actually supposed to be for the "expression" skill.

    By the way, Ghosts, was calling him bullshit on purpose or autocorrect?

    On purpose. She has no respect for Bulldog at all.

    Probably an error, but it would go without saying. Though come to think of it, acting would also work for Etiquette...

    Yeah, does there need a tag at all? I feel like the rule books contradicted each other in that one.

  • ArdentArdent Registered User regular
    Etiquette is using the rules of society against society. That's definitely what Deke was trying to do. I'm not sure if Alex wasn't trying to do the same.

  • AustinP0027AustinP0027 Registered User regular
    Yeah, I rolled etiquette (poorly)

    Just when looking at my sheet, I stared for a while to figure out why it had a tag of acting, which prompted my comment above.

  • cj iwakuracj iwakura The Rhythm Rogue The 25th WardRegistered User regular
    All the successes feel like they'll add up to a practical mutiny.
    (I don't think she's being too out of line, but maybe I'm biased.)

    Unreasonable? No. Clumsy? Yes.

    Everyone understands that you work to move your rivals off the board. But nobody respects sloppy gamesmanship.

    Question: Wasn't everyone's titles temporary until Kenneth's return?

    Not when the Prince needs an excuse to screw us

    True, they haven't been rescinded yet though.

    Part of me wants to spend Will to escape but part of me is like "Let's see what 0 success gives me to deal with."

    I thought about it and I want to go with the 0.

    Assuming no one has any further Elysium business, I imagine they would be going to Emmett's meeting place.

    I suspect the conversation with Kenneth has run its course. At some point Max and Deke will need to figure out how they're going to secure their power base, but that seems far less pressing than a Nictuku.

    Yup. Plus, fighting the Nictuku will help with that

    If we're skipping ahead, I guess Danny would have to be wherever Lizzy is, so the only question is whether we were able to convince Lizzy to come to the meeting.

  • Grunt's GhostsGrunt's Ghosts Registered User regular
    Since looking up all that information would have taken a while, Lizzy would still be at her office if Danny came looking for her.

    We should also establish the carpooling method, though I assume it's Alex on driving duties again.
