    They've announced three clans so far, and all of them have exactly 4 active abilities, even the Tremere, the sorcerer clan who you'd think have more (in the first Bloodlines, they could have up to 11 active abilities, 5 for each rank of Thaumaturgy and Dominate, and the one Auspex ability).

    The d-pad on a controller just happens to have 4 buttons.

    I think I'm starting to notice a pattern here. :negative:

    It just means the character has small tits. That's literally it.

    Even ignoring everything else, there's the breasts. I'm pretty sure even feminine males don't have breasts. (Oh lord, now I've done it. Don't hurt me, RPGnet.)

    I assume by "lack of" you mean small enough you'd confuse them for pectorals—but that's part of the things I don't understand. The two seem impossible to confuse...

    I actually know two guys who thought they were just fat until doctors told them that their estrogen levels are through the roof and they have moobs.
    But they don't care and are still fat.

    IDK. That last image of the dark corridor doesn't correspond with Gangrel. You'd assume it would be something like a forest or at least something that hints at 'animalistic'. If every clan turns out to be one of the base Camarilla clans, then my money is actually on Nosferatu.

    Although with the whole shadowy vibe of that image, along with the fact they have actually joined the Camarilla, my money is still on Lasombra.

    EDIT: After looking at the image again I'm not so sure. I remember it looking different for some reason. Maybe it's the Gangrel after all.

    Aren't Cleavers basically what the entire Giovanni clan is, though?

    Games already dumbed down from bloodlines. Stats gone, 4 disciplines only and specifically made with consoles in mind. I doubt there going to be Nosferatu cause it be too much of a hassle to model.

    Toreador are very one dimensional clan. They either good two shoes obsessed with beauty or psychos obsessed with macabre version of it.

    Rik delivered again, what an absolute madman, using 1's theme and making it sound more sinister is genius tier.

    Why she have short hair? Flat chest and tiny hips are enough, but when you have almost no chest, no hips and put in your head this hair, looks ugly. It' too androgynous. Why in Bloodlines 1 even anarchist girls look fine but here all the girls that have been presented look ugly or rare?

    The one in the trailer doesn't even look like a vampire with that uncomfortable face.
    The second woman look like a hooker with that ring in her nose.
    And this one look too androgynous.

    All tits are valid, what matters is that character creation has a breast slider.

    Absolutely incredible. It even uses the same dang samples and instruments from the originals. He was working with his original file.

    The guy ripped it from the stream.

    They don’t have to go full fishmalk. Give them a subtler form of insanity. Wouldn’t have to rewrite everything that way.

    Well not exactly, except maybe on a very small scale. Cleavers are generally parent or parents in cases, and probably in the best case scenario end up as a messed up family of vampires, but Giovanni are more like an extensive organization due to the size and wealth of the family where it becomes both self-perpetuating and (though IIRC Giovanni don't feed from the family, they have the mobster half of their family business for getting victims, the family is for recruitment and grooming for Clan operations). So I suppose it's a distinction like Cleaver and then Giovanni as Big Cleaver.

    According to WW wiki tho they're merging Giovanni, Harbingers of Skulls and Samedi into a single cult grouping of some sorts in an upcoming splat. Not a fan, since I rather liked all three as their own thing (Giovanni in particular), though I don't really have an idea what the Hecata is supposed to be like (aside from that it's not supposed to erase each of said bloodline of Cappadocians, but make them all part of some sort of necromancer cult).

    I doubt they'd risk it, people would be furious if it wasn't a fishmalk. Or well, 50/50 chance, depends on how much of an exposure we're talking about to VtM in general (just game sorts I figure want the same stuff they got last time, the Troika fishmalk). From my personal experience, people by and large play two kinds of Malks: Fishmalks (of the super-annoying lolrandom variety) or 1:1 Harley Quinns (also of the super-annoying lolrandom variety; in PnP I would say Malk is the Chaotic Neutral of VtM).

    It's pretty obvious. If VtMB was made today, Malk and Nossie would be DLC.
