Character Survey: Part 3

Character Survey: Part 3

This is the third part of our Character Survey! You get 2 XP for completing this portion of the survey in addition to the XP for the other two.

Just remember to email your responses to storyteller@riversidelarp.com so you can receive your XP.

Again, All of this information is between you and the Storyteller. It will not be published for anyone else to see unless you wish it to be known (preferably after your character has been retired).

Since the XP award for completing this will be available to your current character and any characters you may play in the future, the XP is non transferable (as you can just earn it again by completing the survey).

  1. How does your character feel about each other Clan and the Caitiff? Do they have any strong feelings about any Bloodlines? Why do they feel that way?

This survey consists of only one question, but answers should still be of a decent length (a few sentences per). Your character doesn’t have to have strong feelings one way or the other about every Clan (they could even not know much about some of them, especially those in other Sects). The minimum requirements are that you must fill out a perspective on each of the Clans. Just make sure that your character feels positively about at least three of them and negatively about at least three of them.

Your character is not required to have any feelings about (or even be aware of) any of the Bloodlines.

Here is a list of the Clans for reference:

Assamite
Brujah
Caitiff
Followers of Set
Gangrel
Giovanni
Lasombra
Malkavian
Nosferatu
Ravnos
Toreador
Tremere
Tzimisce
Ventrue

And here is a list of Bloodlines in Riverside Opera as well:

Children of Osiris
Daughters of Cacaphony
Gargoyles
Kiasyd
Lasombra antitribu
Old Clan Tzimisce
Salubri
Samedi
