Mouseferatu: I really adore The Gilded Cage. One of the flat-out best Vampire supplements ever. How much do you use it in your home games? I'm still in the midst of a WW drought, but I'm hoping to get the LARP character spun up, unless the game PCS's out from under me.
Hotokegi: I thoroughly enjoyed Secrets of the Mantis and the Phoenix. While my bride has an unreasoning prejudice against the Mantis, I thought that whole book brought them a lot closer to being a viable PC choice (which, in a political game, the minor clans really aren't.)
Just doling out praise, I now return you to your regularly scheduled rants and flames.
