    My Character regularly needs cash infusions to produce documentaries, movies and finance investigations into power abuses.

    So I have a question, if I take the lore sheet, Descendant of Xaviar, I am strongly considering taking 3 Dots for Loyal Hounds. Which means my Gangrel chose to remain with the Camarilla, his loyalty to Lodin returned by providing him 4 dots to spread between Domain, Herd & Status. Now, as a former Afghani Vet, and a recovering Addict, I see him as very street oriented.

    I am thinking of taking Retainers, a few loyal Vet's who he has bonded with who watch his back, writing off his nocturnal proclivities as some form of PTSD. However, for Domain I am thinking either a run down VA hospital or a Vet Help line call centre. My question is, which do folks feel is more appropriate? Secondly, is Domain strictly for feeding? Only because I plan for Elijah to take Prey Exclusion: Active or Retired Military. And finally question about Prey Exclusion, that only affects feeding, correct? If a retired Vet is on the payroll for a local mobster, and tries to shotgun my ugly face off, will I risk repercussions from my Flaw if I choose to rip his head off?

    If you want to be popular in Kainite Culture I would recommend the VA Hospital. You would have the possibility of offering other Kainites Blood Conserves.
    If people show up personally I can help you later by using auspex to see how people are doing even if they are lying or not talking at all.
    If we have multiple veterans should we all have been in the same war or even in the same unit? I would have no problem accepting one of you as ex- CO. In fact it would fit in rather nice with the characters shy personality. Getting contact to new people is not his favorite activity.

    My character holds to the Old School Laws. If you take a loan, you're family... if you do not PAY when agreed, you might get your kneecaps smashed.

    Think Godfather style character. It's about civil ettiquette and respect. if you say you will pay back and then can't.... eh, you then asked for it.
    But, my character'll still be a newcomer to chicago, and will yet have had the chance to establish a strong powerbasis... so it'd be more of a investment partner that owes a bit more than what I myself put into the place.

    From a Kainit Politics perspective that would make sense a business founded by multiple Clans might profit from more support then a business protected by one individual. And Auspex might have a tendency to keep nasty spies away.
    If the GM and you are ok with that I would gladly enter business with you?

    Most Toreador businesses like theaters would not really fit with my character concept.
    How vast should the empire be? Or asked differently how many Background Points should the two of use each invest?

    Well I intent on spending a few Dots myself on the Casino as a proper, later-to-be Elysium. Along with some retainers that are more or less servants that work there at the casino.

    Although if you OWE money, it's less that you spend dots there and more that you haven't been able to afford doing so.
    I'm also fairly certain my Sire got a hand in helping to ensure the setup of the Casino itself.

    Seeing as Vampire population is approximately 1:100,000 it seems unlikely to me that two people who knew each other in life, would both be embraced into Kindred society by different Sires. Now, a shared military background could be a commonality, or point of connect between two characters, but two people from the same unit who both just happened to get Embraced? No, that feels just too forced for my standards.

    As for my domain, I don't want the VA hospital to become a source of blood, as Elijah actively does not feed from Vets. So what I am thinking is that his domain is a VA Cemetary in the Chicago area. So some connections to Veteran's Affairs, maybe an old church converted into a community centre where there's an AA meeting twice a week, an NA meeting once a week, and a Vet Support Group that meets three times a week. And as for the Kindred, the Graveyard is likely sort of a neutral ground for the low clans (Brujah, Gangrel, Malkavians & Nosferatu) to meet and air grievances before they draw the attention of the High Clans, Primogen & Prince.

    Still needs to Add Convictions & Touchstones, as well as the Advantage points spent.
    Then there's the Fluff.



    Btw the Loresheets, when you pick them with Advantage points, do you get the effect of each dot level, or only the one at the highest dot amount? as in if you have 2 dots in something you do not get the 1-dot effect from the same lore?

    Saved Elijah to a PDF for your review! Link is as follows; Elijah Scott, Gangrel

    As for sharing Haven's, the Lantern Hill Crematorium & Funerary Services is open for business, but it is a little less upscale than a Ventrue may desire. But I do have Domain, because I am Lodin's go-to guy for disposal of evidence. :D

    My character got the 2nd floor of his Casino as his Haven. First floor is meant to later on be an official Elysium for Kindred with the groundfloor just being regular gambling locale.

    While Elijah isn't particularly fond of Ventrue, due to their proclivity for looking down on the low Clans. However, that is a generalisation and not necessarily accurate for Clan members on an individual basis. Elijah is particularly resistant to mental manipulations via his Unswayable Mind & 7 Willpower, so you might find him useful in your manipulations against rivals, human or otherwise. Plus with his access to a Crematorium & Funeral Service his ability to dispose of evidence can be as useful to you as to Lodin.

    So I can see the two of them possibly working together, or entering into some sort of mutually beneficial relationship.

    Is more of a modernized Ventrue. He enjoys his heritage and sees himself as higherstanding, but he doesn't look down on anyone that is worthwhile and have use.
    Sure he's not gonna invite the Sewer-dwelling Nosferatu for dinner, but he doesn't use slurs towards a wide group, but rather is specific on those he likes and dislikes.


    EDIT: Also, Lodin? don't you mean Kevin Jackson? He's the current leader, yes? and Lodin died in 1993 if I recall correctly.

    That works! I mean Elijah want's equality for the Low Clans in more of a political sense, like the Nosferatu being denied a seat at the Primogen Council because they are a Low Clan. Not being given an invite to your casino grand opening is your prerogative, BUT, if it is a recognised Elysium, denying access to a Nosferatu or a Malkavian would be viewed harshly by Elijah.

    Either way, looking forward to the game, seems like we have some solid connections forming, and I can certainly see Elijah and Deck working together sharing info and what not.

    As for Lodin, I don't have the 5E Chicago by Night, so wasn't sure.

    The Coterie, as it currently stands;


    Please note that the distinction between childer & Neonate was determined by whether or not the sheet posted had purchased a rank of Status. Also, while reviewing the submissions it became rather interesting, Violetta is so far outside of Elijah's wheelhouse that he likely doesn't know what to make of her, though the close-knit, secular vision of the Tremere might taint his perception, placing her among the High Clans, and flavoring that relationship with some rivalry. Jackson is someone he can work with, and likely does, but he does so with caution, so as not to end up owing the man any favors for fear of them coming due, so I see an uneasy alliance between the two. Deck is someone that, oddly enough, the Gangrel could likely let his guard down with, in that he knows the Nosferatu gather secrets, but he feels he can trust him to a small degree at least, which is more than he can say for most kindred. And Sebastian's role as a Cult leader for a hedonistic sex club, more or less repulses Elijah, striking too close to his own drug addictions from his mortal years, so that relationship, despite being within the same Coterie will likely be barbed and difficult.

    All in all, a wonderful assortment of characters and motivations! Looking forward to it!

    It's too new and not yet a prince-recognized Elysium, but he still treats it as an elysium and expects others to behave as if it was an elysium.

    my character wouldn't deny access to any vampire that approached him upon his domain and request access. He is very beholden to the old-school laws of hospitality that the old mafia and such held, as well as the more chivalric ways of showing hospitality to those that visits, etc.
    As long as they act with respect and a modicum of ettiquette, he will show the same to them.

    He WOULD deny access to specific Kindred if they are acting untoward or with harshly bad manners, or if they have a reputation that has been corfirmed as being overtly violent and horrid. My character's Domain, elysium and HAVEN is not a place for violence, psychopathic insanity or other such acts that'll invite the unwanted kind of attention.

    I've chosen the Pure Ventrue Heritage Loresheet from the Camarilla book.
    I've spend the free 3 dots in it plus an extra 1 from my 7 Advantage-dots.


    Oh btw, what Chronicle Tenants would we be having?

    Just so I know what to really avoid for my character's Touchstones and Convictions.
