Thank you for everything you do that we see and that we don’t see to make this game great. I appreciate the work all of you put in to make the experience what it is.

Nora grins, laughing softly. " No. Do you think that we could?"
TJ “nah, the girls scouts got that racket on lockdown. they ain’t lettin nobody get in”
tl:dr you have 5 days left if you want to support the CbN kickstarter https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/200664283/chicago-by-night-for-vampire-the-masquerade-5th-ed/
As many of you probably know there’s a Kickstarter by Onyx Path to produce Chicago by Night, which will be the first v5 supplement. If you’ve thought about backing it but haven’t yet, you have until Thursday to do so. Even a pledge of $5 is enough to get access to the sneak-peak manuscript, so you’ll have access to a lot of material that will end up in the book (-minus the art and formatting)
I’m just shy of halfway through the manuscripts and I can highly recommend it if:
You like the city of Chicago and want to see how it gets implemented into the World of Darkness (shout out to the Neo-Futurist Theatre!)
You’re into WoD/VtM Metaplot
You enjoy reading about character descriptions (7 of the 11 currently available manuscripts are Kindred of Chicago)
You’ve finished the Corebook, Anarch book, and Cam book and are hungry for more V5 content (guilty)
Your in need of a new VtM related T-shirt and want access to the limit one that’s available for hitting the stretch goal or any of the other bonuses you get from pledging (there may or may not be an NPC Ventrue by the name of Joseph “Joes” Mendoza in an upcoming supplement.)
Personally 2 more funding stretch goals that I’d like to see the campaign acheive, $96k for a 4th chronicle entitled “Let the Streets Run Read” and $105k for a 4th Chicago Folio for the Church of Caine perspective. If you’ve been wanting to be a part of it and either have been procrastinating or just on the fence about it, you have until Thursday to pull the trigger and do it. I think you’ll find it to be worth it.
Sticking with Sandman, Obfuscate 1 Silence of Death instead of Cloak of Shadows means you don’t accidentally wake anyone up breaking in.
The problem is, you can’t universally apply it. Consenualist literally can’t use any discipline as those that would remove the free will of who they are feeding off of. Others could easily have 3 o 4. Giving discipline powers a bonus to feeding roles could make things unbalanced.
Fall: Thanksgiving day. All feeds other than Cleaver type at +2 difficulty as people stay home.
Fall: Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving. All feeds at +2 difficulty as everyone either stays home or goes crazy shopping. All resonances are Choleric, cuz those crowds are stressed to the max.
A) people still going to be lined up for those black Friday sales by 5pm
B) Branton being sizeable enough to have a casino and multiple other entertainment venues, there will still be plenty of establishments open (bars open so you can come get a drink away from your family) not counting the 24 hour establishments that never close.
C) Animals don’t really celebrate Thanksgiving so the Vegans out there are all set.
