Requiem 2e Bloodlines


  • Pitcrew

    So I'm looking at, instead of investing a lot of work into Wild West right now, simply re-launching NOLA (with some changes). I want immediate results instead of something I'll have to do a lot of work for, I've decided.

    One of the most requested features on NOLA were vampire bloodlines. Is there a big repository of converted bloodlines somewhere?

    Anyone have any bloodlines they super love and want to see?


  • Pitcrew

    IIRC, there are a number of converted ones on the OP forums.


  • Pitcrew

    I should go check that out, @Auspice, thank you!


  • Pitcrew

    I have a few of my own you can do whatever with, RDC.


  • Pitcrew

    Got a link, @SunnyJ? Would love to cut some of this work I'm making for myself.


  • Pitcrew

    @rdc Ask @coin if he is willing to share the shit we did for Reno. I don't have sole ownership but it was clearly dope.


  • Politics

    As I said elsewhere, I also have plenty that I've written up. And, again, make sure your chosen bloodlines are tied to the theme and setting.


  • Coder

    If you’re using my stat system, I came up with a way to add bloodlines to it.

    Originally for Descent, available to all:

    Would love to see them, @Ganymede !


  • Coder

    @rdc I'll msg you a link. @Ganymede and I did a lot of these for a different game. I don't know if G has worked on more since then, but I can send the ones I have.

    I did the ones for The Descent, I did a bunch for the Dark Ages game I was working on, and I have a handful more from here and there. I'll send over whatever's appropriate for the theme and setting, although I generally recommend 3 for each Clan, and no more than that.

    Which 3 would you recommend, and why?

    It depends on the game's theme and setting, as I said.

    Since the game is in NOLA, Les Gens Libres and the Apollonaire should be considered. The Rotgrafen might be added too, as sea pirates play heavily into New Orleans' backstory. As NOLA is also a ghostly place, I suggested to RDC using the Sta-Au and Dragolescu from The Descent, which were heavily-tied to ghosts.

    Just some thoughts.


  • Pitcrew

    I am eternally aware I fell into the same trap on Eldritch and thus is not a critique of anyone, but I really wish that games would cosnider using (on top of theme/setting appropriate Bloodlines) theme/settign appropriate custom Covenants, or Covenant off-shoots (in the case of the Sanctified and the Acolytes).



  • @Coin

    That level of local flavor would be awesome. I mean, I'm not typically a Vampire player but it is a little disappointing to browse a wiki and see setting info like, "This is the Hierophant, this is the Maiden, this is the Father, SPOOKY FONT OOOOOOOOOOOOOH rattle chains"

    I mean, again I don't play, but just based on public info like that it seems like Covenants are a blank slate in the books with lots of customization options out there, but most games just play them 100% straight.

    When @skew, @tragedyjones and I were planning on doing a Las Vegas game, I was doing a lot of work to make the Sangiovanni a local Covenant. I had a lot of fun with it and it fit really well into the setting/theme of the game (Las Vegas? Casinos? Mafia? VAMPIRE Mafia? Yes please. And as a Covenant it meant every clan could get in on that action).


  • Pitcrew

    Would recommend:

    Architects of the Monolith for Venture, due to the awesome French Heritage and famous landmarks of the City.

    Mara for the Gangrel, because of the Gulf being /right there/.

    Anvari for the Daeva because of the fairly well known drug trade and decadence of the area.

    Cockscomb Society to represent the genteel social monsters among the Nosferatu.

    Sangiovanni for the Mekhets, one of the city's most well known landmarks is a cemetery.

    Additional bloodlines and why:

    Apollinaire BC voodoo. Shepherds BC of the sheer amount of vampires the city calls to would probably draw them to keep track of the herd. Fisher Kings BC of all the religious memorabilia, the age, and the connections to Old Europe. Dollies BC it seems so in keeping with the undertones of something hideous bathed in a fresh layer of blood to look beautiful once more. Duchagne and Toreador, the first again because of the French connection, the second because of all the art and museums and ornate architecture, etc.


  • Pitcrew

    @coin This is still a good idea.

    Also the Ventrue need a better martial bloodline than the Sons of Cade.


  • Pitcrew

    Khaibit = good balance to Dragolescu and their terrible ghost enslaving ways. ;) (Plus a great martial Mekhet bloodline)

    Here's a link to an alternate form of The Descent's bloodlines:

    @tragedyjones, I re-wrote the Icarians into crazy crusaders. I like them better than the Sons of Cade, but I'm partial to my shit, for reasons.
