You're already in pretty good shape: Thaumaturgy is, by default, not resisted by Fortitude. What's more, even though Cauldron of Blood allows Fortitude to defend against the damage, it's just the levels in Fortitude that get rolled, not the 6th-Gen's elder-level Stamina plus Fortitude. Four dice to defend against aggravated damage isn't so great for him. You ...

Trying to answer the actual question I have looked at the V20 necromancy paths. I suppose there are other paths on the splatbooks, but I don't have the time to make a research. Generally speaking, necromancy paths seems not oriented to combat. I suppose that's for a reason. A Giovanni necromancer is supposed to be subtler than that and not effective on ...

First off: The Discipline Fortitude can't be bypassed. At least not that I know of. It's the only way for a vampire to soak aggravated damage, and not even a reliable one.

The first few things that come to mind are the ability to conjure and control Wraiths. Wraiths / spirits them selves can be a weapon. Consider if your story teller is nice, you take your time calling different spirits and find just the right one, a skin walker perhaps. Providing you either have a good relationship with it or you can command it, the ethereal ...

Invest in rituals. As a young Giovanni, you probably don't have a strong storyline justification for taking the paths of Necromancy that were associated with the Cappadocians, like Grave's Decay or Corpse in the Monster. Those would suit your needs, since they were designed for a Clan that had no built-in combat discipline. (The Giovanni, as you know, have ...

I don't know of any official rulings but I would say that it is conjured on their person, usually held in their hand or in the case of bigger things on the floor in front of them, I would however allow them to conjure a stake in the other vampires heart if they actually put their hand on the other vampires chest, again not an official ruling just what I ...
