camarillas

which camarilla clan should you fight
  • brujah: what the fuck is wrong with you? why would you want to fight the brujah? they kick people out of the clan if they don’t own enough switchblades and motorcycles. this will not end well. if you HAVE to fight the brujah, your best bet is to get them so mad that they start making bad decisions, but even then you’re probably fucked. don’t fight the brujah.
  • gangrel: these guys are all exactly as angry as the brujah but can also go full on animalistic fury at you. also they can melt into the earth and summon animals and shit. if you get lucky, you can distract them with some beggin’ strips or something, but don’t risk it. don’t fight the gangrel.
  • ventrue: if there are no consequences for this fight, then go for it. most ventrue got embraced straight out of the boardroom and have never thrown down a day in their unlives. however, if this ventrue has contacts, you had better believe you’re going to be hurting more than they will by the time they’re done with you. probably worth it, though. there’s a lot of people who want to see them punched in the face. fight the ventrue.
  • malkavian: honestly, you’ve got about a 50/50 chance with these guys. either they will melt your brain so hard that it’ll leak out of your ears or they will have no idea what the hell is going on. even if they aren’t entirely lucid, there’s still the possibility that they’ll socratic-method you into torpor. do it if you have to, but fighting the malks is not a good plan.
  • tremere: the bright side: if you fight the tremere, nobody is going to stop you. nobody fucking likes these guys. the drawback: if you fight the tremere, you are fighting the tremere. these guys can fly? they can summon fire??? they can give the laws of physics the middle finger if they want. however, if you find a tremere neonate, feel free to stuff that nerd in a locker.
  • nosferatu: this is an entire clan full of assholes with a chip on their shoulder. they can talk to rats. they can sneak around unseen despite being six feet tall and smelling like raw sewage. they probably know everything about you already. don’t let the sewer thing fool you: this clan could kick your ass and mine with their creepy hands tied behind their backs. don’t fight the nosferatu.
  • toreador: please. PLEASE. please fight the toreador. i don’t care what generation they are. i don’t care how many of them know celerity. punch them in their snooty faces. distract them with glitter. fuckin do it. i will pay you to fight the toreador. there are no downsides to fighting the toreador. if you win, you have beaten up a toreador. if you lose, everyone will probably still buy you a drink for trying. do it. fight the toreador.

Ohai everyone! Welcome new followers :D


How to get my attention

Send an ask or a fanmail, or tag me “secretsofthemasquerade” in your posts. Be careful that tagged reblogs do not show up in the research function, so either plain tag me with @ on the core text, or poke me an ask telling me to check up your blogs.

If I spot a reblog of yours on my dash which is tagged secretsofthemasquerade, or if you tag me somewhere, I usually either comment it with the reply function, or give it a like to show you I’ve read and seen it.

I speak French, Spanish, English, Latin and have a little Japanese knowledge.

I understand Portuguese and Italian.

Art and credits

The banner was made by TwinPhoton (http://twinphoton.deviantart.com/) so please do not use without permission. All my thanks to him and his amazingness :D

The avatar was painted by Ken Meyer Jr, for the Red List Supplement for V20. He needed some models so I gladly did test shoots ^^ Little did I know I’d made it to become the cover :D

Tumblr theme modified by me is Colorfall theme

The tags I use

secret reblogs: things I reblog from myself to give them new attention (sometimes when I edit the original). Please make sure to like and/or reblog the original link instead!

art: anything related to art, either discussion or characters.

any clan name: any post related or relevant to them

any npc name: any post related or relevant to them

my ocs: is a quick tag I use when I talk about the setting NPCs of the setting I’m playing with. My trusted friend made those characters, but I’m the one controling and giving them life. They are, of course, not free to use unless you ask me.

rant: anything that’s rant-related, not really hate posts, but criticals and wtfs.

resources: anything that I consider resourceful or especially useful for Vampire the Masquarade  players, STs or anyone interested in how role playing games may work.

unrelated: anything that’s unrelated

vampire the masquerade,vampire the requiem are both tags that relate to either game, for one reason or the other. 

questions is a tag I use to all answered questions you guys ask me. Some of them are tagged as resources because the anwser is lengthy or useful somehow.

artists: I try and tag everyone’s art either by their tumblr nickname or their deviantart one. If nickname has a dash on it (a -) I take it out because tags with - just don’t work for some reason. Search function works ok.

to read: things that are or aren’t VtM related that are things I recommend reading or watching. Manga, tv series, webcomics… I present them and tag them as “to read” for you all’s enjoyment.

I usually don’t tag trigger warnings, but I don’t enter into gruesome details. It is the World of Darkness, after all, so we’re talking about adult subjects, but it’s not an excuse to be gore and sexy at every other post.

And those of you with google, here’s the blogspot !

I will often edit the blogspots article as my research gets more interesting :D

Countess Svetlana Vladinova Zuyeva, 9th Generation (through diablerie) Camarilla Lasombra and Keeper of Elysium for Prince Valerie du Courdray of Savannah, Georgia as depicted by the talented @ultema.

Though our VtM campaign came to (an amazing) end, this character will always stand out as the one I was able to enjoy the World of Darkness with for the first time. Thank god for V20 translations and a patient ST.

Scooby Dooby Doo, where are you?

Set in the same verse as the siren AU of an AU (see here and here), in which Jade is a werewolf and Dave also gets to experience the wonders of a supernatural date friend.

@camarilla-intuition I about 500% sure this was not what you meant. But this is what happened.


You love Jade Harley.

You really, really do.

Like, cross your heart and hope you die. You look at her, and you just up and fucking know, because it’s like a musical in your heart and you wanna get all funky with the tap dancing and twirling around lampposts while yodelling about unicorns and rainbows and Obama —it’s just true fucking love.

So. Jade Harley. All the love.

But she sheds like a motherfucker. Shedding as in massive loss of hair. It’s almost like you have a dog. FYI: you don’t. Unless it’s an invisible ghost dog like Karkat’s invisible ghost fish he buys fishfood for. Karkat doesn’t have a fish. Anymore. Had one, years ago, but Gamzee ate it. Accidentally.

THE VAMPIRE CLANS  → TOREADOR  ♤  HIMCHAN 

The Toreador are some of the most beautiful and glamorous of the Kindred. Famous (and infamous) as a clan of artists and innovators they are one of the bastions of the Camarilla, as their very survival depends on the facades of civility and grace on which the sect prides itself.
Due to their inherent clan weakness, although lovely and seductive, the members of this clan are as much prisoners of their artistic vision and sensitivity as they are its beneficiaries. They are often overcome by the beauty they see around them, and become immobilized with fascination. Such things as paintings, neon signs, or even sunrises can captivate them. It requires a powerful willpower to break the fascination quickly; otherwise, the Toreador will stand, awed and helpless, for minutes or even hours. This trait explains why Toreador so often fall in love with mortals. However, it also bans them from ever reaching perfection in their chosen form of art and makes them callous and disregardful once the experience becomes banal.
