So I decided to buy a fire-axe since it's Lethality is 12 and my highest melee weapon is only 9.

I was asked by Fat Larry to go steal a suitcase from the Tong [he said he noticed I was buying from him regularly and not just like someone trying to guard their property). I loved how he discribed what he was looking for! It was this convoluted discription that ended in 'yojimbo' :D I said sure!

  
So I snuck-in. I love using the ventilation man! Seriously I'm glad I play MGS.

 
So I made it to the brief case. I first thought I may have to steal it from this thug via a steal kill, but I decided to explore further since I could see another group on the other side of the 4th garage level.

  
I'll be taking your carelessly left breifcase tonight~♪

I did it undetected :3


Well almost 100% undetected. I did slit some guy's throat who was smoking as I didn't see a way around him at the time.

 
So I also with my madd-skillz-yo manage to sneak-out -not via the ventilation- without being seen!


Seriously Fat Larry made me crave a steak sooo bad. Like if I have one in the freezer I need to cook it this evening for supper. If I don't I need to make some-sort of hamburger-patty (not junkie Patty) dish. I was literally on the brink of drooling. I so wish I could have taken him up on his offer ;____; *le sigh*

I think I'd like to re-play this quest just to see if I could get around killing the smoking-guy. I may just since I saved just before entering :D 

I'm debating taking Pisha's quest now while I'm back in the Downtown...should I? I still don't like the idea of sending the poor man to be eaten just because she slipped-up in her 'food harvesting'...

[will continue after I get back from shopping] 

Did Trafik again :D 5mins to get to the man I have to kill [didn't slit his throat this time, I broke his neck instead...no blood ^^;]. 10mins after that to steal the briefcase. Then the hard part...escapeing unseen. Took me almost 35mins -___-; but I bet the looks on the faces of the Tong & the gang were priceless :D 

"Where did the briefcase go?" 
"Wait! A Tong is dead!" 
"You planned to steal the case all along right? Didn't want to pay!" 
*firefight*

So now I am taking a break since I am weighing doing Necromatic or not...

[will continue once I decide what to do...] 

EDIT---
Tried playing a character with only 1 Seduction...how the hell do you feed in Santa Monica?! My only plan was to follow a chick down to the Gimble entrance and then I only got like 1/3 full. After I did the medical clinic area I was short after using Blood Buff a lot so I had to resort to crawling down to the sewers and finding as many rats as I could D: [as you can see if I can't seduce I'm useless playing this game] I was scared I was going to Frenzy (I have no idea what triggers it, but I'm guessing going a long-time without feeding while low on blood). I'm glad my main game is a 6 Seduction Toreador~

I never did this sidequest. Of course, with dev or Kyrie, if I can't see a way to sneak past someone or don't feel like taking the extra time to be sneaky, I just turn on Obfuscate.

Tried playing a character with only 1 Seduction...how the hell do you feed in Santa Monica?!

Rats, my friend. Rats and blood packs. None of my characters have ever had seduction ratings higher than three. dev doesn't mind rats and Nosferatu are expected to feed off rats and gain two blood points per rat instead of one. As for Sonjya, level one Thaumaturgy takes care of that; Blood Strike does damage to your opponent while also giving you back two blood points for every one you spend until the opponent dies. You can probably play the entire game just using Blood Strike.

I also almost never use Blood Buff; spends too many blood points for such a short duration.

The one character type I tried that I couldn't stand was one with a low hacking and lockpick rating.

I was scared I was going to Frenzy (I have no idea what triggers it, but I'm guessing going a long-time without feeding while low on blood).

Frenzy happens when your character is low on blood and there are people (or vampires) you can feed from nearby. A low Humanity rating increases the likelihood of frenzying. In Bloodlines, what happens is you lose complete control of your character and your vision goes red. My dad was playing with it and for some reason used up all his blood; when he got to the beach, he frenzied and killed every single one of the Thin Bloods there.

Frenzy is a lot more common in Redemption. All of your characters even have a separate frenzy rating. Frenzy doesn't have quite as drastic effects - you still lose control of your character - but he'll just feed on one of the other members of your coterie. It almost always happens while fighting against Nosferatu since they made inducing frenzy a feature of Animalism.

I'm very sneaky >:3 [as I play Metal Gear Solid games]! Ventilation is my friend :D

Rats, my friend. Rats and blood packs.

Blood packs cost so much D: [I do use them like potion when 'on the battlefield' though] I'm just going to stick to hitting-on whatever has higher blood points and moves >.> [however no bestiality..."you'll find me in da club♪"...] I don't mind rats, and I even told Jack that "they can be polite and pass me the salt for my rat then" when told that most frown-on those who feed off rats. Lucky Tremere!

I used Blood Buff at the start to pick-locks until I leveled my Dexterity and such some. I now use it when in melee combat though since I am not good with it. I love the Blood Star (sp?) that I got from Strauss!

My Toreador has 3 in Hacking, and 4 in Lockpicking.

Ah! I figured as much. I'm glad it didn't happen, but now I'm curious to see it...

My dad was playing with it and for some reason used up all his blood; when he got to the beach, he frenzied and killed every single one of the Thin Bloods there.

Didn't he realize he needed to feed? What was his reaction to losing control and such? I feel bad for E ;_;

but he'll just feed on one of the other members of your coterie.

Did that cause them to all be Blood Bonded? I think it would not be fun to be part of your coterie D:

It almost always happens while fighting against Nosferatu

Aslong as it didn't happen just by seeing a Nosferatu! [it would be like a hate crime or such]

Thief is sneaky, too, but it's set in a Victorian steampunk world and there is very little ventilation.

Blood packs cost so much D:

True that. Hence the rats. And feeding off of random homeless people (not Downtown, though) without killing them. And feeding off of enemies during quests. But I try to limit my blood usage.

Didn't he realize he needed to feed? What was his reaction to losing control and such?

You would think he'd feed first instead of killing them all, but apparently not. I think he got hit with a Humanity loss. I was shocked.

Did that cause them to all be Blood Bonded? I think it would not be fun to be part of your coterie D:

I had that same worry, but that was before I realized that they ignored the Blood Bonding rules in Redemption. (Redemption and Bloodlines both pick and chose which rules they follow to a certain extent.)

Coteries in Redeption were . . . interesting. I liked my Medieval one much more, though.

Medieval: Christof (Brujah; main character), Wilhelm (Brujah), Serena (Cappadocian; favourite character!), Erik (Gangrel)

Modern Nights: Christof (ditto), Pink (spoiler, but acts like a Brujah), Lily (Toreador), Samuel (Nosferatu)

Aslong as it didn't happen just by seeing a Nosferatu! [it would be like a hate crime or such]

I don't think Kindred care much about political correctness. Or, rather, political correctness doesn't matter unless you're insulting a Kindred who's more powerful than you.

It's fairly common knowledge that some Clans only interact with Nosferatu if they have to and are repulsed by them, but some Nosferatu sort of enjoy that reaction, I think. Certain Nosferatu particularly enjoy scaring other Kindred and playing up their disfigurement.

Besides, I don't think you can go very long as a vampire without seeing at least a few hideous things that challenge your previous mortal standards of beauty. Sooner or later, you just get used to it. And thus goes the almost inevitable path toward apathy that some Elders are particularly touched by.

Besides, if the other clans decide they don't like the Nosferatu, it's just more fun for the Malkavians. They keep each other company like that, both being considered the anti-social crowd of the Camarilla.
