Histories and Discipline Replacers of course~
IIRC, we did come up with some "Alternate Clan Histories", although there were no ideas for Tremere or Nosferatu.
Ventrue - Ventrue Antitribu (Auspex, Dominate, Fortitude)
Toreador - Ishtarri (Fortitude, Celerity, Prescence)
Brujah - Osebo (Auspex, Celerity, Potence)
Country Gangrel - City Gangrel (Obfuscate, Celerity, Protean)
Malkavian - Dominate Malkavian (Auspex, Dominate, Obfuscate)
For some more bloodline replacers, it seems that Gangrel has quite a few breeds shall we say, underneath their belt. To count, City, Country, Greek (which became City, Animalism instead of Celerity), Aquarius (Gangrel with aquatic animal traits), Anda (Asian Gangrel), Noiad (Replace Fortitude with Auspex).
On the Malkavians part, there's some derangements that could do well, but I don't know about changing their dialogue, since the usual Malkavian appears to have severe schizophrenia. I don't know how you feel on this, Malkav, but I'm going to put some Merits and Flaws for the ideas. Also, I'm going to leave the ideas as generic enough for it to be reasonably molded to any fold desired as I tend to make crippling flaws and OP buffs.
Regression - Regressing to a childish state in stressful times. Humanity is positively affected while it's harder to resist frenzy.
Masochism/Sadism - The enjoyment receiving/causing pain, physical and emotional. What I had imagined was that it makes Frenzy checks when getting hit much easier to resist. As for the downside...what I imagined was that Humanity suffered from the shame of enjoying it. A self-defeating cycle?
Compulsive Liar - Continual lying that's hard to break out of. Persuasion is suffers while Manipulation is buffed.
Body Dysmorphic Disorder - Someone who has issues with their appearances. Appearance costs more due to imagined ugliness. I don't know about a merit for this though.
Depression - Long lasting sadness. Humanity costs more, due to dismal view of life. Didn't know what could be a good merit....maybe increase in Perception to find the flaws of existence?
There's a tweak for the Nosferatu that I thought of. Why not eliminate the "Three strikes rule" for them?
Of course, there's always the status conditions of the embrace. And unless otherwise stated, I haven't imagined a merit or flaw for them.
Like Toreador Poseurs and Artistic Failure, Nosferatu Skins and Rugged Bad Looks, Disgraceful Ventrue, etc.
Poseur - Art is nothing more than a matter of perspective. But it's hard to do so when most see your art as an abomination.
Artistic Failure - You love your art more than life itself, but it's next to the definition of "fail". If nothing else, your passion drove you on, which gave you eternal life...which also locked your mind in your time. In other words? You cannot create anything more than your abominations.
Skins - Ugliness doesn't factor towards inner beauty, but it damned hurts you to loose your mortal life. You have a higher affinity to Obfuscate, wanting to master it as soon as possible.
Rugged Bad Looks - Nosferatu are usually damn near unbearable, but you're more bearable than the rest. *This gives the three strikes rule*
Disgrace - The clan of Kings embraced a peasant.
That's so far what I've thought. What do you all think?
