You think White Wolf are exaggerating.
You could not be more wrong.
I’m honestly not sure I should be reading this.

I find it endlessly amusing this is in there, should apply in general and should go without saying.

I personally think it’s bullshit to create pure deep black evilness in a world that’s is made out of a variety of grays (or greys, to my UK friends).
I always thought Vampire was about mature thinking and non-political correctness. You can have xenophobic and racist characters that actually have a high humanity. You must tackle all these social issues throughout the game, because up until fairly recently, the fact that women have souls, the right to vote or else would be total madness. Same goes for slavery and equality. Let alone other social stigmas our own societies are still struggling against.
Sunday bloody Sunday ffs.
Having the Baali as the “boogeymen” for the WoD is stupid. Everyone’s a jerk in the WoD, but in their own point of view, they’re acting like they should. Because it makes sense.
The “offensive”, the evil, vicious sadistic, demented, twisted and hateful.. this should be found in all characters and in all clans in some degree. Concentrating it all into one clan is just plain stupid.
There’s a great TV show that illustrates this perfectly. It’s Babylon 5. Look at G’Kar, look at Londo, look at the Shadows and Vorlons. Hell even check at Morden. Look at Sheridan and at Sinclair. Look at Mars’s rebellious corps, look at the Psi Corps. There’s no “bad guy”. There’s only what we, with our current state of morality, consider “bad”.

I always found Baali to be over exaggerated and simplified personally. I think as an npc they could work given the right circumatances but as a pc it’d be impossible because they’re a bit like Kyasid in that sense.
As for the whole darker than dark shit well, for me there’s nothing new in them that isn’t possible in any Clan. They just decided fuck it and threw it all in there.
Like with all things i’d just cherry pick if i was going to use one if i’m honest, and even that would be a rarity with this clan just because it’d be so damn difficult to place them in a story and have them be believable.

:3

Frankly I wouldn’t use them unless it made perfect sense as a concept or as a plot device. Even as NPCs.
 Rumors, maybe, those be awesome, but I find the horror to be best when in truth it’s “close to home”.. A member of your own clan being the monster is far more fun and engaging than “that bloodline of infernalists”. All about shades of grey right ? :p

@secretsofthemasqueradeVery true. However, I think on the whole i struggle because it takes a player quite into the realms of ott magic and all that jazz i quite like those elements to remain on the subtler side rather than blatent in your face kind of thing. Maybe i’m just being weird i dunno *shrugs*
