Celerity... Empty
PostSubject: Celerity...   Celerity... I_icon_minitimeMon Nov 02, 2009 10:25 pm

The embrace gifts some vampires with startling speed and reflexes. They can use Celerity to move with amazing swiftness in times of stress. Mortals, and even Kindred lacking this discipline, move as if in slow motion compared to the astonishing blur the vampire becomes. Celerity is commonly among the Assamite, Brujah and Toreador clans.

The Assamites use this ability to strike down their foes before their victims are even aware of the attack. Brujah delight in the advantage this discipline gives them against superior numbers of opponents. Toreador are more likely to use Celerity to lend preternatural grace to live performances such as dance or extraordinary speed when creating sculptures or paintings – however, they can be as terrifying as any Assamite or Brujah when angered. System: The character spends a single Blood Point. The next turn, she gains a number of additional full actions equal to her Celerity rating.

These additional actions must be physical (e.g. the vampire cannot use a mental discipline like Dominate multiple times in one turn). So a vampire with Celerity 4 who spends a blood point may perform a total of five physical actions in her next turn. The actions occur at the end of the turn (the vampire’s regular action still takes place per her initiative roll). Normally, a character without Celerity must apply a dice pool penalty if she wants to take multiple actions in a single turn. A character using Celerity performs his extra actions (including full movement) without penalty, gaining a full dice pool for each separate action. Extra actions gained through Celerity may not in turn be split into multiple actions.
