This is a tough game. Multitasking is definitely a must. Rowan I think played as a Toreador. Lucca and myself also played as a Torry. The game goes so differently depending on how you spend you xp and money. I agree with Rowan about melee, if it fits your personality and clan. I forgot about potence and my range was low. I didn't spend xp there because I was so good at melee. I could sneak up anyone and steal right out from under them. Zanthia, your playing a Tremere? I think that would be interesting because they are into blood rituals; Thaumaturgy. I thought this game is so complex I didn't need to deal with magic. I will be following your progress to see how the experience is. Rowan, don't give up. Did you play Redemption. It is hard to keep these games straight.
Always tell the truth; you'll have less to remember!
