[sblock=OOC]I'm experimenting a bit with the posting style, see if I can give info without slowing things down too much[/sblock]
[sblock=Archer]You sleep OK in the tank on the second night; regaining Willpower normally. Your next roll will be at -2.[/sblock]
[sblock=The nights events up till now]The group awakened in the tank without disturbances this morning. Without exception you're all hungry.
[sblock=Auspex - Archer & Beth]
The rats are loud again. Slithering about in the walls.[/sblock]
As you awake you catch a glimpse of Diego in the corner of your eye. He's sitting at the edge of his cell, looking at you, and eyeing you with a hungry, malevolent look.
You turn to look directly at him, but he's looking away, with a bored expression on his face.
[sblock=OOC]Just in case people are curious Out of Character; this was a random effect.[/sblock][/sblock]
A few minutes after dawn, Nice sticks his head in and looks around.
[sblock=Auspex - Archer & Beth]
You can make out snatches of conversation.
...no blood delivery... look hungry...
...feed the vegetarian...[/sblock]
Nice returns and leads you on what looks like a hike through the woods. The night is brisk.
So, looks like you get to graduate to living food, he says.
After a good forty five minute walk through the woods, crawling over trees and through the underbrush the group emerges into what looks like a cow pasture. There is a small dirt road nearby with two cars parked.
Blackcoat is standing near cluster of cows, with another man. A short pudgy Indian, he is dressed a bit like a college professor, with a sweater vest and dark slacks. Your beasts are quiescent at the sight of him*, but from the way he's grappled a large Holstein and is sucking at it's throat he's obviously a vampire.
[sblock=*]Sentences to this effect almost always indicate that that vampire possesses Obfuscate **.[/sblock]
As you approach he turns to you licking his lips clean of blood and his mouth twists up in a smile at the sight of you.
Raghunandan, Nice greets the man warmly.
Good evening Nice. The Indian man responds in English tinged with French. You've brought friends.
It's always pleasant to have dinner companions. If the Indian man, standing in cow poop, is bothered by the situation, it doesn't seem to show.
Yeah, easing them into feeding.
Blackcoat stands away from everyone, she turns her back to the group and stares at a herd of cows off in the distance. She lets out a long baying moo sound. A ripple of moo's rolls through what had been a quiet cluster. The herd, close to a hundred animals, begins to walk toward the group.
Magnificent idea! I started on altar boys myself. It was terrible. By the end of the first month my sire had to created half a dozen ghouls. Didn't make a whole of lot sense. I'd take blood out and he'd promptly have to put it back in. Not efficient, and tough on the herd as well. Eventually I persuaded him to bleed them into cups first.
The cows cluster around Blackcoat . The whole group is quickly surrounded by a sea of grunting bovine flesh as the beasts gently jostle to get closer to the diminutive kindred.
A Cow Pasture -- A few km from Blackcoat's Mansion
You are all standing in the middle of a pasture. Around you a small horde of cows has gathered, mooing and stomping about. Up close you're surprised how big the docile creatures are.
Nice looks at the group. So this is dinner. Try not to kill any of them.
The Indian man, Raghunandan (or "Reggie" as some people know him) stands next to Nice.
Blackcoat has disappeared completely, her small form dwarfed by the bovines she's called.
[sblock=Feeding when hungry]
Everyone will have to make frenzy checks, either when you start feeding, or when someone around you does and you see the blood from their feeding.
Resisting Frenzy (except Predator's Taint, which is one success) is generally an extended action that occurs over several rounds.
The sight of blood, when you're hungry, will trigger a frenzy that requires 2 successes.The first taste of blood, when you're hungry, triggers a stronger frenzy (requires 3 successes).
You can keep rolling each round, but if you fail at any point you frenzy. If you fail, you fall into a hunger frenzy that lasts until you drink the vessel dry.
--I know it's just cows think of it as a warm up.
