PostSubject: Random rulings I've made during the game   Fri Dec 06, 2013 8:25 am

Meeeebe I should start listing them now, right ? Very Happy

I've reopened the books lately so I believe I should go and say what I've thrown away right ? Smile

- To "look human" (fake wamrth, pink skin, breath..), only one blood point is necessary (and not 8 minus humanity or whatever). However it's a conscious effort and the Beast doesn't like it when you spend blood on "useless features" (unless you feed it right away)

- I use Revised sheets, but if I write Alertness, it's the same as Awareness. Informatics = Computer as well.

- About the spoiler tags.. I use a narrative system, but basically it's like bloodlines : you need that amount or higher to get the info. When you're the ones writing the spoiler tag, follow this example :

Claudia is lying ; she has a total of Manipulation + Subterfuge of 5 (not true, just giving an example), but she is doing it under stress and to someone she trsuts ; this will lower the difficulty for someone to find out (this way add in or substract up to two points from your initial supposed dice pool depending on how you feel your character is able to portray, I trust your sense of balance ^^). To find out about lying, it's Perception + Subterfuge. So the tag would be perception+subterfuge > 3 to find out she is lying.
Of course further information on the truth would be at higher difficulty, as well as her reaons (if she is doing it out of love or fear, this information would fall under a new spoiler tag with Empathy ^^)

If it's to notice something that you're not paying attention to, and that's going just to be there an instant, that would fall under wits (think on your feet, react.. you may not be the best pespective guy, but that piece of shining metal that's the canon of a gun, yepe, you saw it and can act according to it)

If you're not sure about spoiler tags, don't worry, I'll edit them out Smile

I think she's just writing down what we've been doing for a while.  When we started, I had to ask if the > symbol meant "greater than or equal to."  So "Perception>3" means you only have to have a Perception of 3 for that spoiler, not 4.

Most ability checks in VtM need an Attribute combined with a skill/talent/knowledge.  It's mostly common sense; spotting someone's emotional state would normally require Perception+Empathy, unless they're hiding it really well, and then you might have to read their aura (Auspex>2).

Even if you don't have the stats to read a spoiler (the clueless Brujah has to pass on a lot of spoilers  for Perception+Empathy), the type of spoiler involved can tell you something about what's involved.  Anything involving Subterfuge usually means a person is hiding something... you just don't know what it is.

I didn't know about the Humanity & BP ruling, though.  Hmmph... I think old farts should have to pay to look human.  Of course, if my Humanity was low I might feel differently.  Smile

I knew, but nobody was using it really so I kind of just played along while not having to use BP XD

Duncan uses it. Although as you might guess from his actions, his Humanity is high enough that he wouldn't have to spend multiple blood points anyway, even without Claudia's ruling.

I think I've had to spend at least 1 BP a night when passing as human. You might not need it when walking through a public place without stopping; but if you're going to interact with humans, you'll draw attention if you don't spend the BP. ("Hey man, are you okay? You don't look so well. Want me to call an ambulance?")

It's per scene ; because we spend "shorter nights", I usually go with one bp per three or four hours Smile
Plus usually you interact with humans on the go ^^ And if outside, meh, people don't really care (unless they're caring XD)

I didn't mean to imply that it lasted the whole night. I just meant that Duncan has had to do that at least once per night since we started the game.
