    I interpreted "reasonably high" as being 4 Dots in Perception personally.

    I think reasonably high would be 3 dots, but that's just me.

    Well, Daelrog did say "notably high"...

    Amy is at four dots, just FYI, but ultimately, it is Daelrog's call.

    Oh, well, notably high is definitely 4+.

    An argument could also be made for something like a Perception+Empathy (reading people afterall) since its reading people, just wouldn't be automatic. I may have Claire start doing some of those.

    No need for that. It goes to show that he has everyone exactly where he wants them Also, I enjoyed the laugh.

    Got it backwards there: 4+ is definitely notably high.

    Also, a question to our esteemed ST: Do our characters actually know the (precise) date and time? I don't think it's been mentioned so far, but it would be good to have a rough idea of the day on which they were embraced. Mainly asking because I kinda imagine Faruq as the type to occasionally watch the news, and you can always make interesting references out of those when in... historical settings like this one.

    If I'm correct, Danielle is close to graduating high school, making it Spring. Let's say it is April 11, a Wednesday.

    Yes, I meant 4 dots of perception when I said notably high. Pick and choose a couple for three dots. Two dots or one and you see a bunch of scary people.

    If Claire's at the end of her post-graduate education, she should be fully in the dissertation phase. All she'd need to do is submit her dissertation and defend it.

    Heh daelrog that turn of events was great by the way. I suppose depending on what Rogan does Claire will have something to put against him

    Oh yes and I've given the matter some thought too.

    She's in the middle of writing an OS to demonstrate several coding philosophies as a sort of hands-on practical thesis. With accompanying papers and such. Since Doctorates are supposed to advance their fields it seemed a good idea for Comp Sci.

    I can slide that between "in progress" and "final debugging" easily enough though. This greatly simplifies matters since she doesn't have to maintain the illusion of being a student for nearly as long.

    Well, I figured there were at least four Promogen and several others who wanted it. However, Rogan was the most likely to threaten and bluster the most for it.


    Now that we're under way a bit, I'll share with you all some of the thoughts behind the preludes. More than anything, my inspiration for most characters was "how can we make this a little harder?"

    For example, I wasn't going to give Faruq the benefit of having his close allies be his Clan. Way too easy. After reading up a bit I saw that Clan Assamite and Ventrue do have a heated rivalry since the Dark Ages, though it's mostly subsided by now, seemed too good an opportunity to pass up.

    Also for Amy, her whole internet date was too good to pass up. I already had Claire doing the whole meeting a stranger and gettign abducted, so Amy got a bit more history. As for Mike having no confidence... well, how many Nosferatu who overuse mask of a thousand faces are?

    Claire was pretty straightforward to do. It took me by surprise when Claire started to dig Rogan, but then again Rogan is sort of a tall, dark, powerful, and handsome man.

    Danielle was the only one without the mentor background, so she automatically got the Jackal prelude. Someone's sire was getting killed.

    Erica was my attempt to make at least one polite embrace. Her generation, her clan, her dots in mentor, even her backgroudn suggested that unlike the others, no torture, no violence, no abductions.

    And then there was Rick. I wanted someone to run afoul of Harry O'Fallen. And come on, who doesn't want to mess with the good guy in the oWoD? However, Rick did handle the whole thing well considering, and as a Tremere, he did get some of the same benefits that Erica did.

    That's... not really what doctoral dissertations are about. One doesn't just advance the field, but contributes to the sum of its knowledge. As written, Claire's just demonstrating mastery of extant theories and eating up a lot of time with this monumental coding effort.

    If you're looking for some ideas, hit this page and search for 1990.

    Not when its meant as an argument for how a monolithic kernel structure can be coded to be more efficient and flexible with regards to upgrades and modifications.

    IE advancing coding concepts that can be used to make computers run better because their OS is designed to be less ponderous.

    Thank you for the link though.

    Worlok, if you want to overhear Quenton's whisper, roll for it.

    Perception + Alertness, difficulty 7.

    One success he knows Quenton said something.
    Two successes knows Quenton is talking about Faruq.
    Three or more he hears it.

    The internet date was there precisely for that reason, so that I expected. I didn't expect the dead reporter, though.

    As for Mike having no confidence... well, how many Nosferatu who overuse mask of a thousand faces are?
    Didn't think her sire would be the kind to overuse it, and I already know Amy will be very different in this regard. Well, I've found one of Amy's goals in the story, it seems. Convincing her sire to grow a spine.

    The dead reporter? Oh yeah, we couldn't let the date go well, could we?


    So this trial should be a good chance for everyone to take notes. Let's see how the Primogen feel about it.

    Rogan: "I'm a big, tough Gangrel who's all about strength. This girl's weak and a liability."

    Hayden: "My childer's dead because of Al and this girl. They both can be damned."

    Henry: "Why should we be burdened with this problem? Let others handle it and wipe our hands clean?"

    Sean: "Ooh, this is terribly fun!"

    Josef: No opinion given yet.

    Cassidy: *Stares*

    EDIT: And yeah, I think I saw the rolls you had. Didn't you have a 7, 9, and 1, and a couple small nubmers that weren't 1? That would be one success. So all he knows is that Quenton is whispering stuff to his childer, which seems natural enough.

    Granted, just under her breath at the moment, but give her another five minutes of this, and she's definitely not going to hold her tongue anymore.
