    I forgot about our degenerate Biowarean furry romance with Erika. :love:

    As far as G), well, maybe their opinion of us has changed over the past six months. Maybe we have the respect of the Barons at this point. Besides, even if they don't like us, what they like even less is the prospect of some outsider coming in and trying to eliminate "rogue elements" within the Camarilla. It would be better for all of us to make sure that a local becomes Prince.

    B) seems interesting but I have the feeling somebody wants to us to look for Mandrake. We have to outfox the fox if this is a trap. D) looks like something we should do eventually but there is no need to rush it, we have an eternity ahead of us. If we are lucky that is. Politics should not be ignored, but delaying a decision may prove prudent provided we use that time to dig up some info which will help us make a choice. I think learning more of the Gangrel before making a choice would be a good idea. We need to be sure he is not playing dumb and that he will be easily manipulated. Furthermore while he is an outsider, which may anger some, this makes him an excellent scapegoat should the whole thing backfire.

    I'm voting A) because in a worst case scenario we waste time while in a best case scenario we learn something useful. Knowledge is power after all.

    I dont remember how many actions can we take a night, so I will recommend on priority.

    Priority One: Protect our powerbase, which means our position in Whitehall. The damn event could just be one engineered by a baron to draw Anthony out, but trap or not we do need to investigate this shit. Frankly, this could seriously limit our influence and scope of actions regard to Whitehall, which could prove disastrous. That's why 1st priority action should be BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB.

    Priority Two: Explore our new home. It would be funny as a graveside's chuckle if we get ambushed by some assassins get in through secret tunnels or such. aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa if and only if there's a second action allow.

    Why not visit candidates, you asked? Well, Tony is a :obviously: character. You do remember he didnt even keep timely appointment with the old prince, da? Why would he curry favour with some new and uncertain Prince?

    As for London candidate, well, he's a newcomer. I doubt he has enough credit left to convince other barons to his side, considering he lost Tremere, and Erika went into hiding.

    Sire a childe pose its own risk: You have to invest considerable effort into that project to expect acceptable returns, ie a useful aide. But that could reduce your attention to this turbulent time. best do it when things settle down a bit, and when Tony level up a lot.

    As for using that secret weapon, no. You need it for certain, very carefully selected targets, not throw it up for some random Sabbat dens. To be frank, I am thinking about an assassination/assault on the new Prince on his way to London if chances appear. We may or may not do that, but secretcy should be absolute.

    A, why go to the others when they will come to us? It will also be satisfying to see those little pricks now needing our help.

    I'd also suggest we spend some time working out or weapon training like we had the chance too way back. D isn't a bad idea either.

    Oh shiiiiiiit!

    (A) Witanhurst is too idontknow.
    (B) Mandrake is not important enough yet.
    (D) Sire'ing a childe is truly fucking gay. Worse than all of Bioware garbage combined.
    (F) Tremere are wizards. Death to all wizards.

    I am fully behind the Gangrel dude. Sunglasses at night and all that. :lol:

    [​IMG]

    And Costello said that Vogler is aksing about us, so we wait for him and do a double play meanwhile. We pretend to want a local Prince officially and go after the Sabbat to gain some favors among the southern Barons. We can call in a conference among the Nobility after the successful operation and if Vogler doesnt come forward.

    Voting CCC - I’ll call Fellowes. It’s time for the Operation Wistman team to prove themselves at last – let’s send them in to take out a Sabbat den south of the river.

    I like this, but I think we need some insurance first. First of all, we need to dig up more info on this Vogler guy - we want a candidate who holds us in high esteem and favours our interests over that of the other Barons, but not some inept fool who is easily manipulated by everybody else around him. Remember, someone who is can be manipulated like that can just as easily be used against us too. Basically, we want to be what du Marchais was to Prince Kirkbeck - the King's favourite member of the court. But if he's a moron who could fuck up an order of fries, then that's worthless as far as I'm concerned. We want a strong candidate whom we hold some degree of sway over. The update mentioned that Vogler "had someone's ear", I'm curious who that person is.

    If we find Vogler to be a suitable candidate for Prince (which I'm still skeptical about; Gangrel typically are not Prince material), then there's still the problem of support. Nobody knows who the fuck this guy is, and so far, his resume doesn't look really impressive. That's where your idea with the favour-currying is nice. In exchange for clearing out the Sabbat in the south, the Barons in the Southern parts of the city will throw in their lot with Vogler. Given our track record with Sculptor Angelos, they would likely see us as the right man for the job. It's a good plan in theory, but something tells me that fighting the Sabbat will be much tougher this time around. They know what we're capable of, so we don't have the element of surprise anymore.

    The plan is a bit risky, because it depends on us making lightning strike twice. In the end, it depends on how much we think having a favourable Prince is important to us.

    Your analysis is fine, Esquilax. My only problem with that is in showing our possession of Kine elite squad. Secret weapon's importance will be reduced if it's exposed. We dont have enough spare muscles to spend, as Fellowes is in command of that squad.

    Bros, I know this is alot to ask, but could we please start a new thread for this titled VtM Empire?

    That way we could have a contents page linking this thread's old posts, and a new thread for a new story.

    Also, I'm not sure how to vote yet. I'm thinking either A or C.

    A because we should know what secrets our home contains and C because we need to test our squad of ghouls in battle to make sure they'll be effective in a pinch.

    Depending on further arguments, I'll sway to one or t'other.

    Sorry for double post- but also, and sorry to make demands, Grotsnbro- could you give us a brief summary of the events that happened between the last update and now? Has there been some flow of time/change? Or is this direct continuation from last post?

    Thanks bro.

    I don't mind making this a new thread if people prefer- all the links in this one are defunct now anyway. Will try and put together some character/contacts/backstory in the next few days, too.

    I would like a new thread, but if no one else does, I'm cool with this. It's just been so long and this thread is already so big that a new start would feel cleaner for a new narrative thread.
