Vampire Chapter One
CHARACTER CREATION (1.0)Vampire characters are created using Laws of the Night: Revised, Laws of the Night Camarilla Guide, and Laws of the Night Sabbat Guide in conjunction with this supplement and with Prime.
Concepts (1.01)It is suggested that a vampire character’s age be appropriate to the generation at which it is made. Extremely old Neonates and Ancilla are very unlikely according to the source material, and should be discouraged or denied by Storytellers.
Concepts that include holding a sect position above the city level require High Approval. This includes, but is not limited to, Archons, Black Hand, Cardinals, Justicars, and Prisci. This restriction applies to characters that achieve these positions through game play, as well as those who had (or have) them as result of their history. High Approval is also required if the character used to be a member of the venue’s opposing sect, such as a former Camarilla member who joined Sabbat.
Membership Benefits (1.02)Characters may not normally take more than two Traits of the Generation Background at creation. Characters whose players have achieved Member Class 4 may take up to three Traits. MC 6 allows up to four, MC 9 allows up to five, MC 12 allows up to six, and MC 14 allows characters to take up to seven Traits of Generation. Further rules for Generation are found under Backgrounds, below.
