is it possible to make them spawn behind the pc, like from your shadow
lf it's possibe to make a "spawn point" behind the npc that moves with you or at when you pass a certan points it spawns one/many Lasombra vampires from a set point some where close
what do you think?(technical and other thoughts)

I think it could be possible to make a trigger in which, after the pc has gone thorugh a specific place, you could spawn lasombra somewhere close and facing the back of the PC. But i'm not sure about a moving trigger that moves with the player.

I'm sure the mechanic for this is in the game somewhere, since the Sheriff does that very thing... disappear and reappear behind you. Then again, after the first few times, it's predictable.

I remember the very first time I played Bloodlines (Brujah character, named 'Esteven') -- when I met the Sheriff, and he began appearing behind me and slicing me with his sword, it only took about 3 times before I turned the tables. As he disappeared, I spun around and sliced behind me. Once I got the timing down, he was unable to get an attack in before I hit him.

I wonder if it would be possible to randomize wether they appear behind, in front, or to the side of you.

if you have multiple spawn points and then randomly chose one or something

Well, in the game there are about six different "appearing points" for the Lasombra to be teleported to. If one of them teleports, one of the free points is randomly selected. But there is no real tactics or whatever involved. Just choose a random point, look if it's occupied by another Lasombra, and if not spawn. Basic python stuff.

Souns different than the Sheriff then, because he appears behind you, no matter what your location or orientation.

From the point of view of the game mechanics, it's completely different.
If it's not too hard to do, I'll probably at least make them swap their places more frequently, so it's not so easy to creep up on them and cut their throats.
Btw, what other disciplines do Lasombra have? Anything usefull to make these chicks a bit more interesting? I have already switched their guns from Glock to Desert Eagle for CE 1.4, but that doesn't help if they don't see you coming...

Dominate, Obtenebration, Potence.
By attitude, they are like Ventrue with megalomania, and no fear to get their hands dirty.

Obtenebration can be tentacle fun. I guess it's not possible to have something like DnD's Entangle with shadows?
Hmm, since it would be stupid to cast darkness for PC to move around with black screen, what about some gooey shadowy slowdown, something like those sewer Tzimisce buddies cast?
Lol what did I write...

Well then there needs to be some sort of way to use Yukie as a shield against them, otherwise it's not realistic.
