    The EU isn't weak and pathetic, they've been very successful in their quest to destroy Europe for decades now. They're evil as fuck but they effectively control almost all of Europe with an iron fist and will continue to do so for years to come.

    You know, you are right about the rank. But I believe the premise still holds.

    The French Revolution created many social changes within the army. The title and birth right of nobility was forbidden by the National Assembly. The officer corps thoughout Europe primarily consisted of nobles or men who had attained noble stature or station (Elting, 1988). The reorganization of the officer corps within France had actually assisted up and coming officers such as Napoleon." - cite


    Unfortunately, I can't find my main citation, but I'm by no means a history buff. Just remember reading that most generals and officers prior to the French Revolution were aristocracy, but post Revolution were made of rapidly promoted sergeants and their ilk. There are probably better read folks on here who could confirm or shred this.

    Dam from this pre-rendered video or concept art looks fine. Either way, you can't claim that they made every female look offensively ugly.

    That pianist(?) knows what I'm talking about.

    I doubt many could claim they had a choice, excluding members of Ventrue, Giovanni and Tremere perhaps. But least of all members of clan Malkavian, it would make sense if Malkavians were naturally drawn to the already unstable types, with predictable consequences.

    If Malkavian insight provides accurate, albeit covert, information of reality, then Malks would be closer to reality than other clans. You could even say that they are sane, and member of other clans are the lunatics.

    Well, he never even claimed to be noble. His Sire was. Still, the story and the accent *could* have been false. Or maybe he just decided he *likes* the English accent. Weirder things have happened in WoD.

    And the story of his supposed Sire would be of his actual Grandsire? Perhaps, perhaps.

    Maybe 'LaCroix' is an ancient Camarilla title meaning 'whipping boy'.

    I suspect that we are simply seeing what played out every day in HSL's daily standups.

    Its like a bunch of fundamentalists who make up their holy scripture as they go along. Gotta keep up with the fad dogma of what you are supposed to chant or you get canceled on a cross by the career special victims acting as clergy!

    Even something meant to be supporting is declared "Hate" and "Violence" by the nutters because you used the wrong terminology for their mythology.

    He said he graduated from the royal military academy (École Royale Militaire?) and joined Napoleon's army. After Waterloo he was embraced by a Belgian noble. It doesn't say straight if he was a noble or just rich enough to be allowed into the academy and I can't find anything more on him from his lines (source).

    But you are correct about how the organization of the French army changed after the Revolution (and with Napoleon). In fact, it was possible for a commoner to become a high ranking officer and then be granted noble title, because your capability as a soldier was more important than your social background. This was the case for many of the Napoleon's Marshals.

    Not officially, but there in an underground clubbing. You just need to know someone who is on the inside to get on a private list of guests. I heard the places are packed full.

    I recognize the words and can read them, but not understand them. It's like they are speaking in one of those Lovecraftian eldritch languages.
