Golconda is a state that some Kindred can achieve by having true peace with their beast, which eliminates part of their Hunger Smile
It's not a city or a place, it's like enlightement of Bouddha and so Smile

It is a city. In India. Southern Deccan penisula. Capital of quite prosperous sultanate untill late XVII century, then conquered by Great Mogols, some local princes, then British. Link:

Also a town in Nevada:

Salout's putative enlighment took place in the former, of course Laughing Hence the name given to it.

EDIT: mayby we could go sightseeing after TFN is out? lol!

Feral wins 2 points for VtM Lore!

He's right though, Saulot took a journey to the city of Golconda where he reached inner peace with his Beast. So now, the term "Reaching Golconda" is used when a Salubri in turn reaches inner peace. Very Happy

Oh I didn't remember it was an actual city !

I knew Saulot had reached Golconda between India and China, but about the name itself...
I've learnt something, yay !

It's an honor for a mere Methusaleh like me to enlighten an Antediluvian. Laughing

It's called recycling, and it's good for the environment. Razz Another trick is to slap the word 'New' on the beginning, and it's a brand new name.

Spanish, too. The province of Nuevo Mexico eventually became the state of New Mexico. (Which some people from the East Coast still think is another country. Education in this country...)

All this talk about yankee name-thievery makes me want to found a town called "New-new-nuevo-neo-York-Hampshire-Orleans-London-Berlin-Toledo-Porto-PortPetersburgsonvilletown" from a city that belongs to someone else that is already doing well. tongue

"El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Ángeles del Río de Porciúncula" has a ring to it.
