Ventrue (not) Live Stream Discussion

Some interesting new tidbits. As we speculated for weeks the idea of non core 7 clans on release is slim to none, BUT fear not he was quite optimistic of obscure clans and bloodlines down the road in DLC and other future games. As always we have a bullet point recap below, post your comments and let us know what you think;

 

 
  • No rules as to what clans will eventually be in the game at launch
  • Lore, play styles and business reasons for what clans will ship
  • toreador most plentiful clan in Seattle
  • Non-cam clans while interesting are just variations of the core 7 which does not make sense to add right away
  • They want to add and expand on clans via new games and DLC for years
  • In modern nights Ventrue has moved to embracing strictly blue bloods to simply people in power to some degree
  • Ventrue clan of privilege however they generally don't lie
  • Ventrue weakness is refined palette, can only drink from mortals without weak blood
  • Dominate and Fortitude are their powers
  • Dominate not a masquerade breach, however using fortitude in front of kine will be
  • The 3D character models released with clan reveals are actual NPCs in the game
  • Rik Shaffers released BL2 theme music is the official theme of the new game
  • Guns and melee weapons as of now have a durability rating but subject to change
  • Guns are throw away items when empty
  • Blood heal is built in with a button push
  • Blood buff is "always on" so no real need for it as an actual ability
  • They are looking at different text translation options, however no voice other language options
  • Will have pen and paper stats but won't work exactly like the paper rule book however
  • Character creation will use options not sliders (as he told us in our interview a few weeks back)
  • They have to ignore some current questions as they simply don't have a firm answer as of yet

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.
