Hollow Bridge Camarilla Character Creation RulesEdit
Character creation is as described in Vampire: The Masquerade (Revised), with some subtle differences. These are mainly in Backgrounds, and are mentioned below in fuller detail. All characters are relatively new arrivals in Hollow Bridge, and all are of Neonate power level. Please bear this in mind when determining the chronological age of your character.
Permitted Clans Edit
Banned Clans Edit
Please do not ask to play a member of a banned clan as refusal will be the result and may cause offence.
1 Free in each plus Primary 7, Secondary 5, Tertiary 3
Primary 13, Secondary 9, Tertiary 5
Secondary Abilities are banned.
3 dots in Clan Disciplines. No Out of Clan Disciplines permitted! Caitiff are further restricted in their choice of disciplines. They may not start with any of the disciplines listed below due to them being unique to a specific clan as this could give a hint as to the clan that sired them:
Chimerstry - unique to Ravnos
Dementation - unique to Malkavian
Necromancy - unique to Giovanni
Obtenebration - unique to Lasombra
Protean - unique to Gangrel
Quietus - unique to Assamite
Serpentis - unique to Followers of Set
Thaumaturgy - unique to Tremere
Vicissitude - unique to Tzimisce
N.B: There is a system in place for learning new disciplines. Feel free to read up on it here.
You have 5 dots to spend. Backgrounds marked "*" are unrestricted subject to a common sense approach being adopted in their selection. High levels of Fame, Mentor, or Resources should be accompanied by suitable justification. Backgrounds marked "**" are either City specific or Camarilla specific and require more than normal justification due to the power level of the characters and the fact that they are all recent arrivals to the city.
Status: Camarilla** (Caitiff are not permitted to have this Background at Character Creation, it must be earned during play)
Status: City (This is what the PC's will earn from the Prince.)
1 Free in each plus 7 to be divided according to taste.
Humanity is equal to the sum of Conscience + Self Control. All character will follow Humanity, Paths of Enlightenment are banned.
Willpower is equal to Courage
15 Freebie Points which are spent at the following rates as described in Vampire: The Masquerade (Revised) P104:
|Trait||Cost per dot|
Please provide details of how and where these Freebie Points were spent as it makes the character approval process much quicker. Also, please remember that Freebie Points spent on Virtues do not affect your Humanity and Willpower.
Merits & FlawsEdit
As a general rule, Merits and Flaws should not be taken, but neither are they banned. If you have a concept that specifically requires a Merit or Flaw, please check with the Storyteller beforehand.
