Stealth on Vtes

It’s been a long time since I brought you anything new, but here I am with a series of new articles that hopely will help us think about the game more effectively.

Sometimes we have the conception of if such or what discipline is used to do X thing … potence grants combat, the auspex is for intercept, the obfuscate stealth and chimerstry is totally disgusting.

Here it is a recount of the cards that provide stealth, subtract intercept, deny the block, cause failure after blocking or are strike combat ends and continue the action. There are also some comments about their efficiency.

By disciplines: 

 

In addition to these 82 cards, there are 16 more, each with the following requirements: ANI AUS, ani pro, aus chi, AUS DEM, black hand, CEL FOR, cel pro, dom obt,, flight, istarri, OBF POT, OBF PRE, sabbat, seraph, gun and imbued. You could always get to have one if it suits us.

I hope that this list of the cards that have been evaluated with some important notes we come well to all to have a clear idea of the secrecy we have in this game.

4 thoughts on “Stealth on Vtes

  1. Thanks for all the work. However, there is a parameter that is really important in Vtes considering how the action modifier works : the possibility of playing different stealth cards in succession. Discipline X can have a very cool stealth card, but if it’s the only one in its discipline, then you can never gain more than +1 stealth.
    That’s why for now there is nothing that beats OBF and OBT, even if some of them are crappy, for the simple reason that if your stealth is matched by a blocker, you can play another, different card in the same discipline.

  2. Few more to add:
    Best meld at superior, AM, 2, ANI PRO, block deny, non bleed only
    Memory Rift, AM, 0, dem, block deny, anarch & only agaist titled or younger vampires
    sleeping mind, AM, 0, dom, block deny / deny unlocks, locked targets only
    Daring the dawn, AM, 0, for/FOR, block deny, acting vampire takes 1/2 aggravated damage
    Day Operation, AM, 0, for, block deny, acting vampire goes torpor after action
    Virtuosa at superior, AM, 3, MEL, block deny,
    Ex Nihilo, action, 1, 1, nec, costs 1 blood per turn to keep
    Shroud Mastery, AM, 0, nec, give 1 to wraith,
    Black Mail, action, 0, OBF, block denial, 1 target only
    Blithe Acceptance, Action, 1, obf, 1, burn the card or 1 blood if combat occurs
    Approximation of Loyalty, AM, 1, pre, block denial, ally or younger vampire with capacity <7 only
    Gear Up, action, 1, pre, 1, anarch
    Horrific Countenance, AM, 4, pro, block fail & block denial

    Blood Bond, action, 2, none, block denial, 1 target only
    Priestess of Sekhmet, retainer, 1, Follower of Set, +1 bleed & -1 intercept, against camarilla only
    Giuseppe, Gravedigger, retainer, 1, Giovanni, 1, on nec actions only
    Marijava Ghoul, retainer, 2, none, 1, on pre actions only
    Clan Loyalty, AM, 1, block fail & block deny, against same clan only
    Anarch Manifesto, equipment, 0, anarch, 1, only on actions requiring anarch
    Catacombs, equipment,1,1, on rescue from torpor actions
    Dartmoor England, equipment, 2, 1, on actions requiring ani or pro only
    Unlicensed Taxicab, equipment, 0, 1, on hunt/employ/recruit actions only
    Incriminating Videotape, equipment, 1 pool, block denial, 1 target of prey's only
    Notorious Brutality, AM, 1, sabbat with cap 8+, block denial, non infernal vampires with cap below 6
    Momentary Delay, AM, 0, cap 7+, continue action, too many requirements

    Then there are the various locations, other masters that give stealt and bunch of clan/sect cards that make you burn blood to attempt to block.
