"Lords of the Night" Preview #7: "Durga Syn"

(c) 2007 by White Wolf Inc.Being home somewhat late from work today, I managed to get only a glimpse of the 7th preview of the VtES expansion "Lords of the Nights", the "Ravnos" vampire "Durga Syn" during the day, but I was delighted to see this vampire.

O.k., a fatty again, but I like the combination of her disciplines, especially the combination of her superior disciplines "Chimerstry", "Obfuscate" and "Thaumathurgy", the first two finding their match in two other Ravnos, namely "Alexis Sorokin" and "Mata Hari". And her specials are not bad as well, a decent steal equipment strike (with first strike) and well as the do-not-tap clause against allies and small-cap vampires. You can either build a fine wall deck with her, e.g. with a "Sniper Rifle" and "Draba", or some more aggressive deck using "Sensory Deprivation" (with cheap OBF stealth) and the ability to get some fine equipment like a "Seal of Veddartha" or an "Ivory Bow" using "Magic of the Smith" to get it.

Now that I come to think of it, she very much resembles the G1 Tremere "Justine, Elder of Dallas", both with her disciplines and her special ability.
