Ventrue Clan Reveal Trailer

As we stated Ventrue is the next revealed clan. Here is the trailer which shows a very blood thirsty Ventrue kicking ass and taking names, as well as the write up of their powers, post your thoughts below;
 


The blood of rulers flows through the Ventrue’s veins. While that once meant embracing high-priests and aristocrats, they now recruit from investment bankers and corporate executives. The “Clan of Kings” see themselves as the architects of vampire society who hold lineage and loyalty above all. Unusually for the clan, the Ventrue of Seattle were drawn to the dream of building their own power structure without oversight from elder generations. Now that the Camarilla has gained control, many Ventrue have realigned to join these new rulers, or have doubled down on their autonomy. Enterprising Ventrue have entrenched themselves in the business of the 21st century, paving the way for a prosperous future and making enemies of anyone who prefers the old ways.

The Ventrue are the guardians of the Masquerade and Princes of uncounted cities. It runs in their blood to be obeyed. Using their signature Discipline, Dominate, a Ventrue gains the power to control the actions and manipulate the memories of others. Fortitude is the Ventrue’s Discipline of physical resilience and allows them to outlast their foes.
 

Dominate
  • Mesmerize - Allows the Ventrue to place one NPC in a brief hypnotic trance. The person so affected is oblivious to the world around them, ignoring sound, touch and even pain.
  • Command - Significantly extends the Ventrue’s control over the Mesmerized NPC. They can now be ordered to move, remove obstacles, or even attack others.

Using Dominate powers is not a Masquerade violation.
 
Fortitude
  • Absorb - Allows the vampire to take a brief defensive stance in which they may deflect all attacks they can see, healing their wounds for every would-be strike.
  • Personal Armor - Hardens the vampire’s skin into a stone-like barrier.

Allowing a mortal to witness your Fortitude under attack 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.
