Venice Eternal

Postby Hephaesteon » Sun Jul 13, 2014 11:36 am

Hey folks! I know several have asked me about this sim, and I'll say first and foremost that I'm just a player there - not an admin in any way, shape, or form (never again! ;)), so I can only answer questions from a player perspective. BUT, seeing as they're opening soon and letting folks come in and take a peek, I thought it wouldn't hurt to give people a little info about this beautiful new sim that's opening.

Venice Eternal is based on classic World of Darkness, in particular Vampire: the Masquerade, and is set in the titular city of Venice. That means it's a city of mostly humans, with a dappling of vampires that your character may be one of. For more information, peruse the site and our landing area in-world.


Website: http://www.veniceeternal.com/ (please note registration isn' up just yet!)

In-world: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/V ... /66/126/22 (they're finishing up the last bits of the build now, but the admins have told me it's fine for folks to come peek around. The red glowy bits show where various rentals will be)

How would someone who knows nothing about V:TM go about bluffing their way through roleplay there?

Astonishingly easy, Darby - I never played before, but all of the info you need is on the website. It's basically standard vampire RP with different "clans" that have different traits, and there's a masquerade in place - meaning you aren't "out" about being a vampire in public. I'd suggest reading the sim lore (here: http://www.veniceeternal.com/sim-lore) and then perusing the list of clans from the top, if you thought you wanted to be a vampire (there will be lots of humans too, and ghouls). I can tell you a good deal about Gangrel and Tzimisce since I've been RPing them leading up to the sim opening and I'm the Tzimisce contact; if you have questions about anything else though, feel free to ask and I'll find someone who knows.
And that was that.

Yay! Been waiting for this. Beautiful pics. Now to figure out what to play....

Looking over the website now, but I'm curious about the admin names. They all have themed names, so does that mean they're all anonymous to the players?
There used to be a gif here. It was awesome. But it's gone now.

I think so, yeah, Harlequin - mostly so that they can also get "down" time to RP and not get burnt out. That said, they're all on pretty often so I don't imagine it'd be an issue with getting in touch with them, and the few interactions I've had they've all been very friendly. If you have particular questions about admin stuff though I can pass 'em along and try to get answers :)
And that was that.

I personally am extremely excited about this sim comming up because i have been a die hard VTM fan for most of my life. Table top and even LARPS. So im curious to see if this sim does well or ends up dead like the others who have come before. For anyone who wishes to read up on the way the game works, here is the core book for it. Generally i would imagine it should be going off either these rules or the mind's eye theater, i need to get in touch with some of the admins there and find out.

Are the hunters just humans who hunt vamps? Or are they Hunters? Like, do aggravated damage with a phonebook and throw off Domination Hunters from The Reckoning?

(Please don't take my description as pejorative, I kinda hope it's the latter because we need more Belmonts)

I am so playing my Lasombra of the Sabbat. The game can get complicated, there are a good bit of things to understand about VTM if they are going purist (Which god i hope they do).

I've only been unwillingly exposed to the first Twilight film. And some vague recollections of that old 90s film Blade. You think I can wing it there okay, Heph? ;)
