Faction Struggle

Author : salem

Description :
The sects have been losing members to the upstart Anarchs for too long. It's time to return order to the kindred and take back what they've lost. Of course, should the Anarchs be causing problems for the rival sects, well then there's no sense in not taking advantage of the chaos....

With the Gangrel gone and the Brujah being a prime recruiting ground for Anarchs, the Camarilla is even looking to the Assamites as a potential inclusion to their sect to add some much needed military power.

A storyline tournament (3+F) concept using random piles of promo cards (plus a few others) for a centre deck to represent the struggles of the various factions.

Each player plays with a standard tournament legal vtes deck. They must declare to all players at the start of the first round (and any time they are asked) what faction they represent. Factions are defined as: Any of the sects, Anarchs, Imbued, or Black Hand. Be reasonable. If your crypt is 75% Sabbat, don't choose Camarilla. If your deck only has titled vampires and no way to turn titled vampires Anarch, then don't choose 'Anarch'. The judge can force the player to choose something reasonable if they believe the player is being unreasonable.

In the centre of the table is the Faction deck; a library and crypt.

At the start of the game 7 library cards are turned face up from the Faction deck, and 4 crypt cards. These form the Faction hand and Faction uncontrolled region. Any player may play a card from the Faction hand at any appropriate time as if from their own hand. Any 'do not replace' clauses on Faction cards are ignored, the card are always immediately replaced from the Faction library. Use normal sequencing rules if more than one player wishes to play the same card.

During a player's influence phase, they may spend 2 transfers to claim a vampire by moving a Faction crypt card from the Faction uncontrolled region to their own uncontrolled region. Draw a new card from the Faction crypt to replace it in the Faction uncontrolled region. The claimed card is generally treated like any other card from the player's uncontrolled region for moving counters on or off, etc, except: it stays face up while in the uncontrolled region, and it only requires half as much pool as its capacity to move it from uncontrolled to controlled (round up). A player may also spend 4 transfers and 1 pool to merge a vampire in the Faction uncontrolled region with the appropriate vampire in their own controlled region, without it having to go via their own uncontrolled region.

Once during their untap phase, a player may discard 1 card from the Faction hand and replace it with a card from the Faction library.

Any Faction cards burned go to the Faction ash heap. Any Faction cards removed from the game are moved to the Faction ash heap after being removed from the game.

If ever the Faction library or crypt is empty, shuffle the appropriate cards from the Faction ash heap into the library or crypt, if any.

The faction represented by the winning player is the winning faction.

It stays face up while in the uncontrolled region, and it only requires half as much pool as its capacity to move it from uncontrolled to controlled (round up).

Just to be sure: the influenced vampire becomes controlled just with the before moved pool counters on it, not at full capacity?

That is correct. No free blood. Just what you've put on it.
