I've been involved in one aspect or another of the adventure games hobby for the past twenty-five years. Started playing in 1987. (First game? Champions, followed by CyberSpace, the Iron Crown cyberpunk game for Space Master, their sci-fi Rolemaster spin-off.) Was hired by InQuest Magazine in 1996, where I started my editorial career. Since then, I've done work for Green Ronin, Malhavoc Press, Dream Pod 9, and White Wolf. I managed two different game stores in the metro Boston area in the 2000s, and am now working primarily freelance. Still gaming after all these years.

I have a weakness for good coffee and bad puns.

@xenoterracide The HtR hunters don't have any of the Vigil factions; they have Creeds, which are splats based on their approach to their supernatural hunt. I'll add more about that.

@arthexis Indeed. That's why my answer says "may," rather than "do," when it comes to Vigil Hunters.

comment How to avoid having Dominate or Devil's Advocate dominate play
It doesn't address the subject of your question, but I must know -- when the Demon commands the Vampire to commit diablerie, how many Breaking Points is that? It sounds like the kind of thing that would cause Humanity to plummet.

comment Is Carthian rule more like democracy or anarchy?
@xenoterracide Well, as a start, you'd probably have herds maintained in common, so that consumption could be regulated and the area not overtaxed or degraded. Rather than red rent paid to a Prince, you'd have a council of some sort where officers made decisions collaboratively and were chosen based on merit rather than connections or power or age. Granted, it would work about as well in practice as most kinds of vampire government, but if you're young, eager, and creative, you could see the advantages.
