Clan Quest Mod is an add-on for Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines that not only adds many new quests along with a myriad of other new features, but also integrates several other mods for the game, including the Arsenal Mod, the Camarilla Edition Mod, Companion Mod, and more!

Report RSS New Humanity and Diablerie System

Clan Quest Mod 4.0 will feature a new system for humanity as well as a new feature allowing players to diablerize other vampires.

Posted by on

Diablerie, drinking another vampire's soul to gain her strength, in normal Kindred society is a four lettered word; in the Sabbat it is common practice. Likewise, while members of the Camarilla struggle to hold on to their humanity, the Sabbat openly rejects it, harnessing the Beast rather than denying it. Both of these themes will be represented in the next edition of Clan Quest mod.

The ability to diablerize other kindred will be an option available to those that join the ranks of the Sabbat. A number of characters in the game, when caught alone or off guard, can be attacked, and once bested, their strength stolen. There will be a wide collection of NPCs that can be eliminated this way, some old, some new. Each such soul taken must be bested both physically and mentally. However, this doesn't come without consequence! Killing another Kindred this way leaves a permanent scar on the soul and if the spirit of the consumed is not subsumed completely, the player is left open to fits of rage and other unpredictable behavior.

And what exactly does diablerie gain the player? The main benefit is a random dot in any discipline the consumed NPC was proficient in; this includes out of clan disciplines. Likewise, you gain some of their skills and knowledge, gaining a random dot in a talent, skill or knowledge the deceased possessed as well. However, you cannot increase your dots in a T/S/K or discipline in excess of what the departed possessed - this opens the door to injuring your soul for no tangible gain.

Additionally, the humanity system has been changed completely to more closely match the pen and paper system, i.e. minor sins don't affected the truly damned so acutely. Furthermore, in the new humanity system, it is possible to allow your humanity to fall below three, and players reaching a humanity of zero may find they lose themselves completely.

Other paths of enlightenment are still not available; the spiritual change required to accept an entirely different world view doesn't come quickly or easily and simply cannot happen in such a short span of time. As the newest member of the Sabbat, the player may find himself struggling to hold on to their soul, while at the same time embracing the virtues of the Sword of Caine!

Stay tuned to more new features and NPCs coming in the next version of the mod by following me on Twitter or YouTube!

Excellent work! This is certainly a major step in the world of Bloodlines, and will definitely encourage me to give Clan Quest 4.0 a try! VTMB players have been waiting for a diablerie system since 2004.

I really can't wait to sink my fangs into VV...Just to punish her for her arrogance

I love your work. I just hope you will think about a truly evil ending, if possible. I see that many overlooks such a chance, but Diablerie should open you to new 'avenues', I think.

Finally! A Soul Reservoir. Will you be able to summon them as familiars? Or maybe, occasionally, take their likness to perform infiltration?

Like for ex. take Ash likness and feed on Isaac.

Nah, but they will haunt you if you don't handle them correctly and mess your unlife up =)

Btw, will there be any form of 'Madness' level when you will Diableriez Malkavian, one below your generation?

Tremere quest is, in my opinion, best of Clan quests. It will be fun to force others go through something similar.

As far as i understand, Voerman sisters are below character's generation level ( unable to Dominate them ). This makes them stronger than player's vampire.

Please have voice overs for the spirit form of Ash and other characters, and have them speak kind of like Ash did at the end of the video.

Man, I am doing my best to fully voice act version 4.0, but I think I have to skip it for that part of the diablerie sequence. Clipping together existing dialog just isn't diverse enough for this kinds of dialogs you need to have, and finding sound-alike voice actors is difficult at best, impossible at worst.

I think the mod is great as it is, but if you did want to include full voice for those sequeneces then just get VAs who don't sound like them and use voice changing effects to make them sound echo like and creepy to mask the change, they are no longer living after all, whos to say they would retain their old voice
