Toreador Confirmed as Third Playable Clan

Malkavians

What was that...? Say again? Oh that I am 3/5 for calling the playable clans on release. Why yes... yes I am. 😉 As you can see by the title it is the Toreador. Now granted I (and others) thought they would announce the Ventrue this week, but let's be honest that is a lock as is the Malks. So if my prediction success rate holds the 5 clans will be Brujah, Tremere, Ventrue, Toreador and Malkavians. So we will see... but let's not get ahead of ourselves, let's dive into the Toreador... All the gritty details and the reveal trailer below;
 







One of the largest Clans in Seattle, the Toreador’s history in the emerald city runs deep. Beauty-obsessed artists and architects, poets and songwriters, these Kindred have had their hands in shaping Seattle since its pioneer days. As the historic music venues and eccentric mid-century homes make way for expensive high-rise apartment buildings, some wonder if the Clan of the Rose is fading in Seattle. Still, members of the Toreador Clan can be found perusing an art gallery downtown or revelling in a Pioneer Square nightclub, and more likely than not, hanging on the arm of someone with social, political, or cultural power.

Head over to the Paradox Interactive Twitch channel now (9 a.m. Pacific / 12 p.m. Eastern) where the Bloodlines 2 team has just gone live with more details and a Q&A on the Toreador clan: https://www.twitch.tv/paradoxinteractive.

Toreador are creators with the ability to capture a room like no other Kindred, using the discipline of Presence to turn a crowd into an audience, distraction into rapt attention, and aggression into adoration. They also utilize Celerity to push their bodies to incredible speeds.

Presence

    Awe: Strike a pose that freezes all before you in adoring wonder. For a short time after, new admirers are oblivious to anything other than what they’ve just witnessed.

    Entrance: Form a group of admirers around the vampire, following along and distracting nearby enemies.


Public use of Presence abilities does not constitute a Masquerade violation.

Celerity

    Unseen Storm - Dash in any direction with such speed that you momentarily disappear from view, allowing you to land attacks, dodge around enemies, or get away before the dust has settled. Upgrades further enhance the effects of Unseen Storm.

    Accelerate - Move so fast that everything else in the world appears to slow down to a standstill. Assailants seem frozen in their attacks, cars crawl forward, bullets zip by lazily, and the vampire can perform stunts that, with an 80’s synth track in the background, would make for an awesome movie scene. Upgrades further enhance the effects of Accelerate.


Use of Celerity before mortals is a Masquerade violation.

Full biography

Harlequin aka Peter has been in table top RPGs since 1982 and took his passion online in the mid 80s by co-developing a BBS D&D style multi-player door game. In the early 2000s he ran his own role-play enforced Ultima Online server for several years, then moved over to running a Neverwinter Nights server for several years more after that. Later he opened up and ran NWN2News.net which was a site dedicated to the then in development NWN2. He did that for for 4 years with a peak of over 10 million page views a month. He then took a break from community building. When the WoD MMO was rumored he hopped on the bandwagon and for 5 years ran WoD News with over a thousand registered members and millions of page views a month. WoD News broke exclusive news and interviews during that time, was referenced by sites such as Blues News & PC Gamer.
