Cloak and Dagger

4 minute read

Battle cloaks have now been available for over a week, but still a clear picture fails to emerge regarding which clans will adopt the item. At the moment, The Inner Circle appears to be the only large clan to have adopted the cloak en masse. Lady What The has been sporting the blue attire for some time. One notable exception, however, is Vermathrax-Rex who remains infra-blue.

Reports are sketchy, but it seems that Capadocious clan and the House of Heorot are ignoring the cloak entirely, as are the Church of Blood. The most interesting situation lies with the Shadow Court: after deciding democratically to adopt the cloak, a schism has occurred. At the time of writing, the vast majority of the rank and file have turned blue, but none of the leaders.

While they could clearly don the cloak at the drop of a hat, it smacks of poor leadership in not setting the example for others to follow, especially as the decision was made by the majority. It seems that in the Shadow Court democracy all are equal, but some are more equal than others.

Taken with the recent resignation of two of their Chancellors, and evilve_inc’s eschewing of Shadow Court matters to pursue a personal vendetta with Lucius, cracks are starting to appear in the clan designed to last forever. Their enemies will no doubt be watching events unfold with interest.

Though the cloak’s magic had been altered for better, the Capadocious Clan dislikes the fact that resters should depend on a piece of cloth, instead of honor, to keep their word. Also, the idea behind resting is to “rest”! Humans can help a powerful vampire reach 250 blood in less than 3 days. What kind of rest is that? We’re not donning that cloak, it’s not on our short-term nor middle-term plans.

NONE of the SC leaders are wearing the cloak?


Then whats this blue thing I have on ? twirls around And certainly I’m not the only leader who has been wearing one…I could name a few to start with … but of course.. it does look better on me .. ;)

Anyhow, I can assure you .. myself and my clan are happy blue campers right now…

I realise the last two are not current leaders, but surely they should still set an example to provide continuity? So, you are indeed a Chancellor? Our poll was “right”? laughs And you are flirting with a senior Capadocian grins evilly, thinks of the headlines


ophelia and nemesis_wings are on … hiatus atm

Phoenixxe is on a personal leave… :( (OOC:death in family)

and no… I’m not a Chancellor…

Just clan leader of CdV … and flirting shamelessly with a senior Capadocian ;)


obsidian the blue angel ;)


Hear hear, I agree with this, however, it does not take into account that dishonorable’s would take advantage of those trying to remain honor-bound. I have yet to make a decision myself, nor has the CoB. I do not speak for the CoB, however, I assure the City…we will not be rushed into such a decision.

…that some people is blue. I would love to hurt them real bad. Well… now that I think better… I might make some of them bleed a bit… we’re still allowed to bite them, right? Guess I’m going to bite some blues… although maybe that won’t hurt, but cause pleasure… who knows? ;) winks to an angel

Thank you obsidian for explaining what I couldn’t before.

So yeah I’m blue now. shows off nice new blue cape 8)

However I can’t seem to decide if it’s flattering to know that people are watching me, or just plain creepy.

Well if it weren’t for the one blue vamp you want to hurt real bad, we never would have started…ahem…talking.. ;)

So truly … you should thank him….


And you can sink your fangs into me at any time… in fact I look forward to it…

sighs wistfully

obsidian the blue a true angel ;)

Lord BubbleKnight

Well, that’s right… and I should say our… conversations… are rather… interesting… so yes, I guess I have to thank the great God RavenBlack for introducing the cloaks into the city and blah blah blah… So tell me, dear angel… if I go and bite you… would you take me to Heaven? ;)

And I think a lot of people are playing the let’s-wait-and-see-who-else-gets-one-first game… Which means they’re all sitting around waiting for each other to get them, hehe

Hmmm … you two are beginning to transcend the bounds of good taste. I implore you: GET A ROOM!!!

Lord BubbleKnight

…we haven’t already?

At the end, blue or not blue, resting will still be a matter of honor than other thing. If the cloak does not help truly separating this… why should we don it? Maybe at one time we will do, in order to interact with blue ones… but it’s not on our current plans.

Anyway, you can interact with blue in other, more pleasing ways ;)
