    ST stands for "Storyteller", White Wolf's preferred word for GM (Game master).

    And yes, the player was the one wearing a fedora. Though quite possibly his character did too, it was (of course) a Tzimisce antitribu. None of us knew enough to question it.

    I once managed to die in the Prelude (and not get Embraced), we had a big laugh.

    The reason that I ask is because I think that in Priest (not sure, as I typically don't consume vampire media told from the kine perspective), there was a vampire with a fedora... Or it might have been a cowboy hat. Again, I never actually fully read or watched it.

    In other words, an even worse run than the Shiki "run". Would that be called a d
    isaccomplishment?

    The main difference between Old Clan Tzimisce and current Clan Tzimisce is the use of Vicissitude, right? If so, is Uncle Vlad Old Tzimisce or current Tzimisce? I ask because his character sheet says Vicissitude 5.

    Vlad is his own man. Vampire. Whatever. Clans don't mean shit to him.

    With Vlad as the vampire, Count Dracula, I kind of figured that Nobu and Qin Shihuang would be Wraiths or Risen, but it's interesting that those 2 ended up in direct conflict with each other during WWII, but it is regrettable that Nobu apparently got final-death'd (from what I can see) before he ever met Vlad.

    Also, less to do with World of Darkness and more just legends, in general, but Sutekh has a hippo head, right, while the Serpent is typically associated with Apophis? I know that the Ministry is often called Serpents, but no one ever calls them hippos?
    Edit: Actually, the Set animal, sha, is often categorized as aardvark, antelope, ass, camel, fennec, greyhound, jackal, jerboa, long-snouted mouse, okapi, oryx, and pig, so... Yeah.

    Nothing because White Wolf could barely be assed to give them a book, let alone a developed culture.

    The Fascinate Arcanoi just instantly made me think of a certain idol group or a certain idol VTuber.

    https://whitewolf.fandom.com/wiki/Path_of_Caine What's the difference between 10 and 2, in terms of sins?

    As with all such things the real answer is "whatever the ST thinks the difference is", but if you want a random opinion, it's probably the difference between "failing to improve yourself" and "failing to acquire very specific knowledge that is needed to ascend".

    Never forget, Hierarchies of Sin are an RP aid. 10 should be near unattainable, and 2 should be super blatant.

    In that light, 10 should be something like "failing to live the TYPE-MOON autistic hermit mage lifestyle."
    IE, besides basic survival stuff, you can't do anything that takes time away from your all-important research.

    While 2 should be something like "refusing to investigate some obviously juicy lore the GM is baiting you with."
    Something like, this Noddist Methuselah is offering you a nice chat and it's probably a trap but man, the lore!

    Everything weird has to be D&D somehow.

    That said, the Ravnica book was actually pretty cool.

    Looking through Valvatorez's and Fenrich's backstory in Disgaea 4, how likely is something similar, at least to a lesser extent, to happen in World of Darkness? Like a Kindred and a Garou initially enemies (obviously), but shit happens, and said Kindred ends up taking a silver bullet for said Garou (which would obviously not be lethal to a Kindred). In other words, how would a Garou weigh a personal debt with the obligation to oppose even unknowing "servants of the Wyrm"?

    Lol, a Garou would rip their own brother to shreds if they turned into a Vampire one day. Rage is a helluva drug.

    Which is to say "doesn't happen, until someone wants to write a novel about it."

    Don't most abominations go completely feral, anyway? And this is counting ones that don't die by the next dawn.

Oh and those human-looking sunwalkers don't really have an equivalenr, a hyper high humanity Vampire on the parh of Golconda is the closest yet still very different.
    Oh, in terms of Shiki Jinrou, they might just be stronger than average revenants (ghouls who can produce their own vampiric vitae), especially given that the series labels them as "still alive".
