Fortunately for the two of us, Tremere bloodcookies aren't fattening -- just enchanting! Wait, oops.

On another note, I just got back from my game. We got a new player: a gothy chick who's playing a Malkavian (Dementation focus) very much inspired by Alice in Wonderland. Kinda cliche, I know, but she's having fun with it for a very first time gamer. Her derangement is schizophrenia and she thinks cats talk to her. So far, she's met a kitten who talks like this:



They finally got passed creation, and have already met Lacroix and Jack. I pretty much just did the intro out of Bloodlines; it worked. But does anyone have any suggestions that I can throw at Alice (the Malkavian) other than a talking street sign? He he.

Hmm...
When she enters sewers, you can make her to do a roll. If it is not successful, then she may fall asleep dreaming of falling down the rabbit hole. =)
Also (ah crap, I'm stuck with American McGee...) she can be more lovely with melee weapons like Vorpal Blade...
Well, you can make her entrance to MMN like a talking to a Cheshire, and Cheshire has a very good phrases (like Yoda from SW) - look into McGee's Cheshire words in the game. They are pretty puzzling and nasty.
Ah well - remake whispers to Cheshire's whispers maybe?..

IMPOSSIBLE! The tong-problem in this barony has been cured long ago. So no mission impossible...

@Voraxith:
For Alice, hm she'll probably want to see the mad hatter.
Queen of Hearts (Therese maybe). So she might be frightened to near final death when she meets that Malk bitch for the first time.
Let her see a white rabbit every now and then, and make her try to follow it (can be fun if she sees a concrete wall as a hedge Twisted Evil )
If there is a new, and possibly dangerous situation, make her roll a die to see if she can cope with it, or just stands there wringing her hands like Alice does so often in the story.
Can't remember a lot more of this story about the most stupid and annoyingly helpless girl in the known universe Evil or Very Mad

The Caterpillar in there and in the story he's quite rude and short with Alice but in essence what he does is try and define Alice you could use the smoking till lady in the diner for that possibly?

Knave of Hearts is a nervous character who gets put on trail for stealing tarts. Tung might be a good character for that since he's on Therese's shit list.

The March Hare believes the Hatter murdered time I think possibly Rosa would be a good idea for this one because she is in a sense outside of time with her ability to see the future.

The Cheshire Cat raises philosophical points sometimes making her think about her POV maybe Nines would be a good option here.

The Hatter is basically insane so possibly Grout maybe?

The Mock Turtle is like Carroll's running joke at Victorian etiquette & fashion. So maybe someone like ViVi who always keeps up to date on those things.

The Duchess is another important character which is left out of the Disney version but she swings from dark aggressive moods to pleasant and charming. She is known for being grotesquely ugly so maybe someone from clan Nosferatu?

The King of Hearts is pretty much the opposite of the Queen he's kind and tries to reel back the Queen's bad moods on others but does so in a subtle manner.

The Dormouse falls asleep everywhere and can't keep up with what goes on in the story.

The Gryphon is lazy and doesn't care about other people he's used to getting his own way.

The Dodo is a caricature of Carroll because he had a stammer and used to introduce himself as Do-do-dodgson.

That's a run down of most of the characters there are a few others.

My gods, man, but that was epically hilarious. I don't think I've ever laughed so hard before without being... hmm, shall we say medicinally enhanced? Smile And in the library, at that. Well done, sir; well done.

Thanks for your ideas. You've given me quite a bit of food for thought, meo, Malk, and especially you, eye of the divine. I think I will give this virgin RPer loads of fun with her Alice Malk character. I might even have to finally go watch the new Alice movie with Johnny Depp (speaking of whom, anyone gonna go see Dark Shadows?).

Well I'm glad I made you laugh. Did I spell it wrong or something?

hehe no worries it took me ages to come up with that post because I had to do a bit of online digging to refresh my memory on some of the more obscure characters but if you ever want to bounce ideas or anything PM me ^_^. I'm quite an Alice in Wonderland fan.

The film is nothing like the original it is in fact a completely new story of Alice returning back to wonderland years after her first visit but it is a really good film. I have the book knocking about somewhere I should really get to reading that XD my reading list feels never ending atmo.

So, I forgot to post about my game this Wednesday. The Gangrel and the other Torrie showed up, so we had five players.Basically, they survived their first Sabbat encounter before Jack could even finish explaining anything. And then, one of the Toreador accidentally diablerized one of the Sabbat survivors who was in torpor. No one but Jack knows what happened, and they can't figure out why he won't stop laughing. Very Happy

Oh, I dunno. Her character's name is Mojo Jojew. Yes, that's right -- that is her actual character's name. A male amnesiac Toreador with App 5 who is obsessed with kittens and hates fighting. Decided to take a drink from a body they thought was dead, but was actually a Sabbat in torpor. And now Jack has decided that he just can't take this shit anymore and is laughing his shaggy fucking head off. Very Happy

Jack's head isn't the only one that will come off from laughing! bounce

Drinking from dead bodies? I have no stomach, but I must vomit. (Well, that is the way to recognize a Torrie.)
What comes next? Buy a sunlamp to get a bit of a tan?

Depending on one's Nature, I think you could resist the temptation even when under the Beast's influence. At worst, you should have to make a Self-Control roll, with modifiers if you have a Nature like Monster, Deviant, etc. The pursuit of power depends on your personality, and the Beast doesn't have a lot of rational thought. If you are in frenzy due to bloodlust or hunger, then I would think you'd drop your victim when they ran out of (regular) blood points. Diablerie is described as being pretty difficult, requiring a dice roll every turn you continue to suck out the person's soul; I have a hard time believing you could do it by accident, unless your Nature is fairly nasty to begin with.

It's a fucking "effort" to diablerize ; this is why there isn't accidental diablerie Smile You don't kill, skin, bash, and cut someone into proper pieces on "rage" Wink

So that shovel probably still isn't finally dead. That makes one of your group partly bloodbound to a Sabbat. Even more precious lol!

Oh yes, poor poor Noelle (the player's name). I told her about our little discussion on the forum here, and her face turned beet red. I also told her about Malkav's idea, but then said that everything went down as she believed it did. I have decided that the random bloodstain that was a faceless Sabbat is actually a Ravnos antitribu, and they used Chimerstry to trick-sack the deluded Toreador into thinking that they were dead. This is why Jack laughs his ass off every time he sees her (or him; I sure wish female players would play female characters, and visa-versa -- makes things easier on proper pronouns).

So she's bound to a Ravnos? I wonder what they'd get him to do? What kind of standing do they have in L.A.?

I'm gonna have to think about that one. It was kind of a on-the-fly decision (also, only way I could really rationalize exactly what happened both in and out of game). I've never really thought about Ravnos antitribu before, aside from that one pesky motherfrakker that lurks about here somewhere. Maybe he can give me ideas. Very Happy

I don't think she'd be bound; that takes three drinks (1st Edition VtM specifically said "on three different nights", although Revised Edition is maddeningly uninformative on that detail... but I'd say three different 'drinking sessions' at least). But she's 1/3 of the way there; so should they meet again, she'd be drawn to him.

I whole-heartedly concur with Mr. Oliver. I have always stood firm on the "three different nights" rule for Blood Bond. Either way, though, one drink is supposed to be kind of like a permanent Awe effect (Presence level 1) toward the vamp who was sipped from.
