The second one is more you
And it has helluva interesting plot. Following a cold trail can get noir af. But I'd play Arnold *cough* Conrald too. If there was enough violence involved
Ooooh the Ravnos' setting is tickling me right.
Well, there was only one character... nothing extra, pretty much the vanilla Assamite
First and only game. How I lone for another one.
I always have a few in my head. Concepts... I am creating a coterie of social retards, 'Bad Omens Pack,' based on, atm, fan made flaws; have the Assamite and !Salubri floating around. Will write more down later, I have to sleep now. Meanwhile, any ideas? Could have Pander there, too.
Later: I imagine the Assamite as a failed ganger: a bit power hungry, likes being in control; but something went wrong and he got beaten up bad. He's always been a bit frail. He chose to run from the city... with a circus
Cause he's throwing knives
Through effort of combined manipulation and cunning he later even becomes a principal, though in the end he's not happy with the place. Too much noise, too much lights. But he uses his position to develop a vast net of contacts, and because he does not shy from violence, people die when the circus comes. So he has that working for him, which is nice. His life ends when he comes to collect on the old debt.
He carries over his frailness into the unlife for some reason (flaw Damaged Blood). Have to work on his motivation there, though he definitely wants to run the pack. And climb further. To show them all!
The other one is Salubri antitribu. In life, he was a scientist, a little bit adventurer: historian and archaelogist (no Jones here). Idealist, enthusiast, maybe even a believer. His sire chose him because of his specialization, to continue his work (maybe Silas?). He was approached in the old way, and because he was in his... later life, and felt he does not have many trips and digs ahead of him, he agreed (good for him, because the other option, he was not told about, was death). He soon lost much of his idealism, when it became clear he developed a crippling flaw among his kind: his natural Valeren is full healer path (Disgrace of Adonai - pdf download). He is shunned among his clan, and the last time his sire spoke to him, he gave him an old roman sword - which broke the first time he had to use it and it almost cost him his unlife. He carries the pieces with him, to remind him where idealism leads.
Despite all this, he is determined to fulfill the goal he was embraced to achieve. What he thought to be a voice in his head developed into some sort of spiritual mentor (who could it be, who could it be), and helps him greatly in his endeavors. Also he wants to forge a better sword and stab his sire with it.
So I need one or two more characters and bring the pack together somehow. I will happily hear your ideas. Or about your characters, just let's talk about vampires for a change, could we?
Even later: Who could fit in? The Nossie bravo? The Malkavian executor? No... Oh, the 'Stool.' We'll see about him in the morning.
