Part II Preview... the man himself

As winner of the first event, Brandon got to design the Old Guard faction leader. Where we left off, the Old Guard were split down the middle between the Tremere and the Ventrue.

Bay Area Storylines pt. 1 - Disciples (preliminary results)

Yesterday was our first event, and I have to report it a great success. 10 players in total from all around the bay area.

Congratulations to Brandon Haas for winning the final round with the clock running out and saving him from certain defeat. The Old Guard were victorious in fending off the first wave of the invasion, but their loyalties are split within the faction and infighting places them in a dangerous position.

Possible Revised Card Texts

After our first match, I've come up with a couple of ideas to revise the event cards. Nothing is final of course, but this is what I've come up with.
Power Base Oakland
Master. Unique Location. 1 Pool.
Each time a minion, retainer, location or item is burned, put a counter on this card. Any minion may take a (D) action to burn all counters from this card, for each counter burned the Methuselah who controls PB Oakland gains a pool. Tap this card to reduce the cost of a weapon by 1 (never below 0) or tap this card and burn X counters to reduce the cost of a weapon by X (never below 0). Any minion may takes control of this card as a (D) action. Anarchs receive +1 stealth on this action.

The Sabbat Invasion needs some help, so here are a couple of ideas for revision:

Holy Warriors of the Sabbat
You may not gain pool unless this card is untapped. Holy Warriors of the Sabbat begins play tapped and does not untap as normal. Untap this card when you gain control of the edge. You may not gain pool when you do not have the edge. Tap this card to give each unique Black Hand vampire your control a vote against the current referendum. During your discard phase, if you have the edge and control an untapped Sabbat
vampire, your prey burns 1 pool. During your influence phase, if your faction leader is ready and this card is untapped, you may spend four transfers and pay a pool to move your faction leader to your ready region.

Possible replacement for Hand Archives:

Rite of Vitae
Master. Sabbat Invasion.
Tap this card after a round of combat after one of your vampires successfully inflicts damage to gain blood equal to the damage inflicted. 

I'm short on time, but this is what I have so far. Ideas are welcome.

Faction Favors

I've considered not even making the favors Masters, but just went ahead and did. Each player will start with one of these in play. Some of the images are reused from other projects of mine, but most are photoshopped off of flickr commons.

A Work in Progress

Here are the powerbase cards that will begin the game uncontrolled and in play. 

 This is about the quality of cards I'll be able to make, so no complaining.
