Soon after the Bloodlines 2 reveal it began the anti-SJW brigade (as I call them) came out of the shadows and started going ballistic over some of the quotes from Paradox and Hardsuit Labs. Just going to notably toxic sites like RPGCodex or even the Steam forums and you got people all up in arms jumping to the conclusion this is going to be about vegan vampires holding hands around the campfire singing songs and not a dark, gritty world.
Now the easy fish in the barrel to shoot is if I quote and then dissect some of these posts in various forums. But this is 2019, not 1999. So rather then do that I am going to counter some of the anti-SJW videos on YT. As let’s be honest it’s a bit more entertaining, at least for me and hopefully yourself.
Now before we get into this foxhole allow me to clarify a few things. We have not seen ONE line of in-game dialog yet. NOT one. Most of these people like to talk about “red flags”, you know what a “red flag” to me is? Commentators commenting on something they haven’t even fucking seen, heard or read yet. Taking developer quotes who are talking on a macro level and trying to shoehorn those comments into a micro level and using that to perform logical gymnastics to create artificial outrage on their part. I’ve seen drama queens be more self-composed then some of these people in the forums or YT.
I will be adding a new page to the site called "Info" this is where a single page of compiled info about the game will be for easy reference. Look for that shortly. None the less more info after combing though ALL the other articles.
The Story -
Takes place 15 years after Bloodlines, you are mass embraced then captured by the cities kindred to be put down in the final death, you escape and taken in by another kindred named Dale who sets you up with a haven and shows you the ropes and you must come to terms with what you are. The character’s journey will take them across Seattle, a city once known for its music culture and progressive ideals that’s been overtaken in recent years by big tech companies and billionaires.
The plot will lead you to the city's underground ruins. These sections are said to be inspired by the real-life locations that were paved over after intense fires during 1889, and the ruins house a number secrets pertaining to the lost history of Seattle, and how vampires played a part in it.
You will meet (or hunt down) the other thin bloods of the mass embrace for good or ill in a "massive" side quest.
