Dark Ages Vampire - Bloodlines

Game Master Dennis Harry

Bloodlines is a continuation of the now defunct table top Dark Ages Vampire game wherein the PC's have created lineal descendants throughout the ages.

FYI Alessandro, in case you were wondering, the NPC you are now currently encountering was a PC in my former table top game from which this PBP was spawned. The player, who was controlling the Volkov's before he stopped playing in this PBP, diablerized BOTH Gesu and Michael the Archangel, fully played out as part of the Bitter Crusade module a few years back. It was quite an intense chronicle...


I actually typed Michael the Archangel, then erased. Didn't want to push.

Having terrified fun with it since I've got no powers.


Yes, in game you should be terrified of this creature who seems to embody multiple people each of which is likely over 1,000 years old...


Hey! All those guys are supposed to be hiding behind the scenes, trying to gain advantage for the end when they eat us all like a big bucket of pop-corn.....

Oops, someone ate them already.... :-)


I will grant all players 4 XP for excellent roleplaying in the by Day session of March 10th and for the determination to stick with an ST who posts sporadically :-)


Most gracious...

Do you feel I should add a dot to Manipulation? From 1 to 2?

Or is Charisma + Subterfuge enough?


A manipulation bump makes sense for sure.


Done. 4xp on Manipulation.


I have recruited a 7th player. He will be joining us this week.


The thread has been updated for everyone.


going to spend 4 exp to bump my willpower up to 5.


OK, if you think it will help..... :-)


LOL 4 willpower was kind of pathetic :)

As a side note, remember that you are still holding a number of your freebies from character generation and willpower is 1 freebie per point.

I have restricted Willpower increases with Freebies. Sorry if I did not note that in the Discussion thread anywhere. Willpower is too useful to be so cheap, a houserule I have had for some time....


Lord Andrew checks himself into anger management class.......


LOL. That was pretty funny.

No worries. I do not recall seeing anything about that in the thread. Could you tell me what the restriction is, or is it an outright ban?

Could explain the company you keep... :)

Not a ban. The cost of raising Willpower is 4 per dot not 1 per dot. I will allow raising of Willpower with experience points though s the game progresses. The reason for the restriction is due to years and years of running Vampire games where players would max out on Willpower with no story rationale for it. I know, I am punishing current players for past players bad behavior but still, it is my ST policy.

I have known Xing for a long time outside of game, so certainly, he keeps bad company :-)


Surprisingly busy today. Will post either tonight or tomorrow.


I will respond to your post in the evening Algar, I need to think through Grima's response some more based on your PM's....


Sure take you're time DM i am in no hurry. I just wanted you also to have an idea of the overall game plan :)


Apologies gents, work has been busier than expected. I will probably update all threads for each of you tomorrow afternoon, at the latest Saturday afternoon.


No worries dm :)


Been sick will post when I can.


Feel better!


Indeed..


Assuming work is slow tomorrow I should be able to update the thread. Xing, give me another day though to update your "new" stats.


Thread updated.

Xing I will try to have your character update ready in the next few days to get you back in the action.


roger wilco! Gimme a buzz this weekend if you want we can chat.


Storyteller Shadow gave me permission to post this here. I'm currently running a Dark Heresy game that is wrapping up soon and will be starting a Black Crusade game here on these forums if anyone is interested in joining. I have 3 active players right now. If your interested let me know. Below is the link to the information page.

Black Crusade Link


I have been playing in Xing's games for a long time. The Black Crusade game should be pretty interesting I would recommend it if you like Dark Heresy/Warhammer 40K games. Michael Santo from this thread is also a player in that game.


I all already PM'ed Xing with questions :)


This is Alessandro, I'm in if you'd have me.

We first met in your 11th Hour game.


The Black Crusade game won't be starting up until I'm done with the current DH game which will probably be 2 months or so but if your interested can start getting characters together.

You mean until you are done killing the current crop of Acolytes...


Michael Santo and Andrew the Hardy, I will give you guys a few more days to post any potential reactions to the current thread you are in before I move on with Pietro's response.


The Great Thread Migration

Clearly, I was never able to get to this in mid-May as I was hoping I would.

My plan at the moment is to try to get this done over my Christmas break.

Once I have accomplished this feat, I will let you all know.

The idea is to convert the thread (up to that point in time) to a Word Document to make it more easily searchable. I will send this document to anyone who wishes to PM me their email address. Once that is done, I will create a new thread from scratch where I will try to keep up with the migration on a more regular basis.

Because of the detail and sheer number of NPC's I have introduced it will make life easier for me and hopefully for all of you.


Crossing Over

One of your ilk has finally crossed over into the world of the Kindred.

As the thread moves forward, more and more of you will be embraced. I hope the fact that the Embrace has been delayed in favor of the back story is ok with all of you. I suppose it must be or else I would have had a revolt by now!

That player will obviously lose time during the by Day portions of the story. As less and less of you are human, there will be less and less day time activity until this thread becomes a by Night thread. At that point I believe we will have a coterie and the more traditional playstyle of a collective group will make posting a bit easier for me and so the game will start to, I think, move at a quicker pace.

In some ways, I think the game as a PBP has made for a more robust story as you are all able to achieve individual goals which in a table top format would never be achieved, at least not in this much detail.


I am still semi-vacationing, though I did manage to get a post up....

I am hoping.......to get Fedirico's pipeweed farm purchased and run into my " missing" countryman.....


I am hoping that those who have already become don't get left out of too much of the day-time activities.

Of course I have no idea who has or hasn't been embraced.


Eventually, you will all be left out of daytime activities :-)


I will update tonight or tomorrow, sorry for the delay!
