There are 7 clans of vampires, all of which participate in the Masquerade. The Masquerade is the veil the vampires use to hide from humanity. It is how they integrate into the real world.

So, here's the OOC thread for the RPG. Please pick your clan on here from those listed below. If you get to the clan first, then you're the leader of that clan. I am Ventrue, leader of the Kingship clan and the Masquerade in the city. Tlieso is the leader of the Tremere.

So here are the clans.

The Brujah are anarchists who're categorised as wearing biker jackets, tattered jeans, combat boots and such-like. They use raves, punk and metal concerts for political gatherings and they're the most violent of all of the clans. For example, Spike would be a Brujah.

Extra powers:

  • Superhuman strength
  • Superhuman speed
  • Superhuman charisma

The Gangrel are gypsies, bikers and vagrants. They're connected to animals of all kinds and can turn into any predator or scavenger they choose. They're loyal, despite their wildness, but they're careful about who they associate themselves with.

Extra powers:

  • Control over animals
  • Increased health
  • Ability to shapeshift

The Malkavians are incurably insane but they see it as a strength, they embrace it whole-heartedly. They're also the prophets, if their mad rantings can ever be interpreted. For example, Drusilla would be Malkavian.

Extra powers:

  • Plague victims with insanity
  • Ability to vanish
  • Mind-control

The Nosferatu are hideous. They're deformed and twisted in appearance and so they hide themselves away in sewers, catacombs, cemeteries and other dark places beneath the sight of the human world. They're the information gatherers of the vampire world. They hoard it and use it to play the power games of vampire politics without ever being seen.

Extra powers:

  • Control over animals
  • Ability to vanish
  • Superhuman strength

The Toreador are the artists of the vampire world. They're obsessed with anything they consider beautiful and will surround themselves with beautiful things. It's therefore clear that there is a deep animosity between them and the Nosferatu.

Extra powers:

  • Enhanced senses
  • Superhuman speed
  • Superhuman charisma

The Tremere are the magicians and scientists. They're very isolated, preferring to remain completely loyal to their own clan than to mix with others.

Extra powers:

  • Enhanced senses
  • Mind control
  • Magic

The Ventrue are the leaders of the clans, the Kingship Clan. They use politics and wealth to gain power in the human world as well as in the vampire world. They consider themselves to be the most powerful of all of the clans because of their scope of influence.

Extra powers:

  • Mind control
  • Increased health
  • Superhuman charisma

Here there are two choices. You can either be a vampire hunter, one who knows about the clans and wants to destroy them. Or you can be a flunky, someone who knows about the vampires and wants to be one. You don't get extra powers if you choose to be a human.

Any questions, post here and I'll answer or PM me and I'll be happy to help. The main thread will begin tomorrow.

That's something we can work on in the RPG but traditionally, the Gangrel get on well with the Nos and the Nos get on well with the Ventrue. The Tremere are a law unto themselves. The Brujah hate the Ventrue and the Toreador get on with everyone except the Nos while playing their own power games in the background.

Tlieso, does that sound about right to you?

Pretty much. The Malkavians are the prophets while being ostracized by all the other clans

Known for their insanity and most other vampires don't talk with them unless they must. Aside from their insanity, Malkavians are privy to immense insight into things that would otherwise be unknown. These insights sometimes surface in whispers emanating from (but not spoken by) other Kindred.

I just have a few questions about the Gangrel. I know we drink human Blood, but do we drink animals or is it strictly against our nature? And we get along with the Nos but they don't like us?
