Rewards: There are numerous awards available for adventure logs-
- Information- Vampire is a game of secrets and maneuvers. Writing a log may reward you with new information about the other vampires in new york and their schemes and plans.
- Backgrounds- In most adventure logs something happens. This may alter your backgrounds for the better. (Don't try winning the lottery. It never ends well.)
- Experience- Rarely given you may earn XP for completing a log.
- Casus belli – You do something not for any direct benefit to you, but solely to force another kindred to act.
Can I create a new vampire in the City? Yes, you can create a vampire from any of the five playable clans, and from the 11th, 12th, 13th, or 14th Generation.
Can I use existing NPCs? Yes, just avoid doing anything permanent or out of character. You can certainly use Scroll Keeper for exposition or as a middle man, but probably not as a motorcycle riding chain swinging anarch.
Can I use other characters? Yes, just avoid anything permanent or anything they'd wildly object too. Ask the player if you aren't sure.
You guys have a lot of leeway, so have fun.
