Anybody out there have Clanbook Gangrel Revised? I was thinking of picking it up today after work, and I was wondering if the new clan books were any good.

A hello from a new community member

Hello all. My name's Mike, and being a fairly recent inductee into LJ, it took me a while to find out where all the gamers were at.

Just a little about myself and my history with gaming: Been doing this stuff since I was 12 (so that's... yikes, almost 14 years). Started out with D&D and Top Secret, moved on to AD&D1 (for only a few months because AD&D2 came out just around the time I started playing). Did AD&D2 all through high school: three campaigns, one in Greyhawk, two in the Realms. Strangely, I didn't play a whole lot in college, mostly on breaks with my old group, but I found some players my junior year who inducted me into all sorts of new games: Call of Cthulhu, Star Trek FASA, Feng Shui, and some more AD&D2!

Took a year off and worked after I graduated college, and then went to Toronto for a year for grad school where I discovered White Wolf. Mage first, but soon afterwards Vampire and Changeling, Werewolf and Wraith more peripherally. I also played Delta Green/Call of Cthulhu periodically in Canada. Picked up Unknown Armies at this point, too, and fell in love with it.

I came back to Boston (my hometown) and found some new players along with a buddy of mine from high school, and ran a Planescape game (my last AD&D2 campaign), Mage: 1890s and Vampire: Dark Ages mini-campaigns, and countless one-shots. I also started an irc Changeling game set in modern-day Tucson which is still going strong.

Now I'm in Illinois and running a Dragonlance 3E game (my first D&D3 campaign) and looking desperately for another tabletop group so I can run either a Delta Green game, Forgotten Realms 3E campaign, or something completely different. I also recently started a Mage/Changeling play-by-email game set in Renaissance Florence.

Whew. That's it. Oh yeah, I also play GURPS, but reluctantly. :)

Hope to be seeing you folks around! I see lots of people post adventure summaries, maybe I'll do this myself. Till then, check out the websites above for info on some of my previous games.

Tips on Setites

I've been playing a V:TM LARP for the last seven months, and just recently joined another one, where I will be playing a Setite (Follower of Set).

As a habitual Tremere player (The characters that I have had in the other game I play have all been Tremere), this will be a new experience.

Any tips on Setites, the Setite mindset, etc.?
