comment How are Vinculum ratings impacted when pack members die or otherwise skip a Vaulderie ritual?
Thanks, I totally misread the lowering of Vinculum. I think I'm going to suggest that house rule to my group tonight, it makes total sense.

comment Repercussions of breaking a Tremere Blood Contract while being dominated or otherwise made to talk/act against the terms
@TimothyAWiseman I felt the same when I first read it, but it does give an explanation: "The need for eye contact stems from the aggressor Kindred’s need to see his victim’s soul, and the eyes are traditionally known as the windows to the soul. While the vampire needs to capture his target’s attention, the target’s eyes need not be present for such a power to work, they only need to find the soul of his victim laid bare." That's why I increase the difficulty by 1 or 2, depending on whether the target is blind or does not have eyes at all.

@TimothyAWiseman It's on page 152 in the V20 corebook. "A target trying to avoid eye contact can make a Willpower roll against a difficulty equal to Dominate user’s Manipulation + Intimidation (or other appropriate combination for other Disciplines or specific situations, at the Storyteller’s discretion). The difficulty may be reduced for mitigating factors: -1 in the case of the target obscuring his eyes slightly (such as closing her eyes or wearing dark sunglasses) up to a -3 for the eyes being completely unseen (such as with a thick blindfold or having her eyes torn out)."

Great insight, thanks for taking the time to share. Thinking about it, third party punishment might indeed be going too far. Extra/boosted power to make sure the contract is upheld sounds like a good idea. And like Rob states, it will take 5 or more successes for any type of dominate to succeed in this case. P.S. your suggestion of making their eyes catch flame won't actually work, blind kine/kindred can still be dominated. At least according to v20, not sure about earlier versions.

The resisting roll makes sense. The magic should be powerful due to it being a level five ritual. And seeing as this particular Tremere is the one that innovated Technomancy, I'd say the magic is indeed powerful enough. Thanks for the clarification and text!

You do have a point there, but that would mean that the magic would conveniently enough protect against all disciplines that would force someone to talk/act against her will. And then what about physical torture?

I like it, didn't even think of the third party getting involved in the punishment. The contract actually states that it must remain between the two parties. So the third party would most likely forget the intel or be silenced. Thanks for the idea!

comment In what way do characters regain Willpower through acting according to their nature in VTM/oWOD games?
Thanks, couldn't find anywhere if it was instantaneous or at the end of the session.

Thanks, I will re-read those parts of the book and let the group know. Usually we do most stuff at storyteller's discretion, but gaining Willpower is a bit too important to a Ravnos to take it that lighthearted. Thanks for the info!
