I was sitting here thinking of two of my most popular articles. The first one was my best and worst clans from Vampire the Masquerade, which is still my most viewed article to this day, and what your D&D Class Says About You, which is right now in the top ten. With this being considered, I thought to myself, “Hell, let’s just combine them!” So this is me psychoanalyzing all of you once again with What Your Preferred Clan in Vampire the Masquerade says about you.
Basically, this is a series of observations, made by me, about my experience with playing Vampire the Masquerade and the people that I have played with. Knowing what a person enjoys playing the most says a lot about someone and where their general interests lie and this article is to commemorate that.
BUT before I get into this, let me set one ground rule. First and foremost, I will only be covering the thirteen main clans in Vampire the Masquerade. If you like playing a True Brujah, Cappadocian, or something like that for a modern day storyline, then basically you are a special snowflake who has a need to be special and different. No offense intended, but I don’t have time to write every clan and bloodline and I highly doubt that you want to read an internet article that could double as a doctoral dissertation. So with that said, let’s get into it. Continue reading “What Your Preferred Clan in Vampire the Masquerade Says About You”
As many of you may know, I am a huge fan of tabletop roleplaying games! As a person who loves to write stories and be apart of stories that has a true feeling of control, these games are right up my alley. As a player, I love interacting with a world, playing in it, and molding it through my actions. Unlike video games, there is no preset path that you need to remain on and the levels of imagination in the game are only limited to the Dungeon Master’s imagination. When it comes to being a DM, I love creating entire worlds, settings, and characters for my friends to talk to and influence. I create a grand story as I guide these players through this world that I have built for them and see how they react to new and complex challenges.
For those of you who have been following me since the VERY beginning, I wrote an article on general advice for DMs to follow way back in 2013. Boy does that feel long ago since I am fastly approaching my third year running this site. But, in either case, I have not done much with RPGs since that time, so I think it is high time we revisit this.
Over the years of playing and DMing games, I have noticed a set of patterns emerge between my friends and associates who play RPGs with me. Certain people tend to be drawn more to certain classes when they are presented to them and it tends to be that you can match a person’s personality to the corresponding class. Now granted, many people play many different things. I myself always love bringing variety when I come to a game and different parts of my personality come out in different versions of characters. But there always seems to be one that just screams ‘YOU’! So today I decided to have a little fun and put aside the movies and video games for a day and psychoanalyze all of you who take part in these games.
For the sake of time, I have decided to focus only on Dungeons and Dragons classes. Even though World of Darkness is my personal favorite and there is a whole slew of articles I can write on that, I will keep with the traditional game that got the cogs turning in this wonderful past time.
