Hi, I noticed that you put some of the pictures of Vladimir Rustovich into a gallery at the bottom of the page. That was a great idea, and it uncluttered the article, but when you make a gallery, its a good idea to add captions. If you check the article now you can see that I've added captions to the gallery and you can learn how to do so by seeing what I did. Keep up the good work!

That is a very good question. One such method is bracketing. If you click on the source tab of this page, you can see that I created a link to Rustovich by retooling how "Rustovich" directs itself by moving the source into the brackets. Another method is to create a redirect page. If you want Rustovich to redirect to Vladimir Rustovich, create the page Rustovich, and put nothing in it other than #REDIRECT Vladimir Rustovich. That way, anyone who clicks upon Rustovich will immediately redirected to the Vladimir Rustovich article. I hope that clears it up! Asarelah (talk) 15:50, January 13, 2014 (UTC)
Of course. I'm actually counting on it.
Yeah.. he's the Archbishop of Rio de Janeiro.
Clan Novel Trilogy: Lasombra (Book 2) - Shadows.
Page 214 or 215, if I recall correctly.
Your's truly, Russel Hammond.
Dr. John Dee
I'm not a VTES player, but according to my research, the "Keepers of Tradition" VTES base set was published in 2008. The books you mentioned are from an earlier date, therefore 'KoT' is a scenario update on London (which is consistent with the information given in the previous works, as it was stated that Dr. John Dee was the most influential Kindred in the area, despite Lady Anne rising to the position of Prince before him).
Queen Anne VTES cardEdit
The lattest version of her card was released in 2002.
Yes I can do it. You could do it as well, but know that I'm at it, I'll insert these bits of information as it was discussed here.
hey pal you know some active VTMB forum?
I don't know Sharth... It seems kinda excessive to me. I mean, VTM has gone through many changes from the 1st edition up until today, but we don't usually write a special sub-section for each edition in the articles do we? Ok, ok, the V20 is not a new edition per se but you know what I mean right?
Therefore, it is my opinion that the approach you proposed to the V20 line seems inconsistent with our work so far. While I agree with most of your concerns, in my opinion we should use the "Version Differences" section to address these issues. Be that as it may, I'll respect you suggestion to wait until Lore of the Clans is published, to pursue the matter further.
Re: Breed SymbolsEdit
The approach I adopted is that the first part of every article should contain as much information as possible, condensed, optimizing the space. A person enters the page, reads a short description, sees the picture and goes like aahh, so that's what a Gurahl is. I noticed that because of the "Contents" infobox, there was an enormous waste of space and information using the symbols in that part of the article, that's why I removed them to the gallery.
3. Partially agree. If need be, we'll change the pictures.
You have a fair argument. I was wondering what to do with the symbols, but my excuse is I was doing so many things at the time that I got sloppy. I recognize I have failed to address them properly, although I don't agree that they belong to the abstract of the article. Instead, I suggest we place them in a highlighted location at the Overview section of each article. I hope this meets with your approval. Russel Hammond (talk) 17:12, December 11, 2015 (UTC)
UPDATE: I have just modified the articles. Apart from changing the location of the Breed Symbols to the section Overview as I suggested, I have also included the symbols in the article Fera. Tried to add the picture of the forms next to the Forms section but it didn't worked, so I kept it as it is. Russel Hammond (talk) 21:04, December 12, 2015 (UTC)
Re: List of Combo DisciplinesEdit
I want to make individual combos into individual pages (kinda like what I did with Changeling's blessings - Example: Heart's Desire). Please proceed as you wish, but I should warn you that your approach seems like a lot of work. Russel Hammond (talk) 14:37, December 31, 2015 (UTC)
I see what you mean. I think a short description would definitely help, saving a lot of time for our reader... but to add the entire description of the Combo Discipline in the article would make it simply too big and exhausting (that's why I broke it into smaller articles). But, by all means, try to do it your way. If things get messy we can always change it back.
In light of recent developments in the article List of Combination Disciplines I come to your talk page to suggest a slightly different approach. In my opinion, the original approach I proposed was too simplistic, while your approach was too messy. That being said, your idea of organizing the Combo powers according to the dominant discipline level seems better (less confusing) than the way I was originally doing it. However, it still didn't felt right (too messy, as I said before), so I was thinking about a cleaner version and this is what it looks like:
Level One CombosEdit
|Stone Sight ||Auspex Visceratika||See through stone as if it were glass|
Level Two CombosEdit
|Doubletalk ||Auspex Celerity Obfuscate||Speak a a full sentence very quickly and softly, between works spoken normally. To listeners, the sentence appears as a regular conversational placeholder.|
We'll do it together. You can start doing it with the stuff you already published (and the stuff you will publish in the future), and later I'll slowly convert the stuff I published into this new format (but that will take a lot of research, so give me some time please). Russel Hammond (talk) 23:20, January 1, 2016 (UTC)
Just to be clear, I'm not currently working on List of Combination Disciplines because I don't know how to create that fancy reference box you do. I'm not being lazy or anything, I just want the article to follow the pattern you established. Hope you forgive me. PS: good job! Russel Hammond (talk) 14:32, January 5, 2016 (UTC)Hi there! You requested I send a screenshot of the page I referenced regarding the combo discipline: The Bloodsoaked Saint´s Resurrection. Here it is. I also know why our versions differ in that regard. It appears that the lead developer for V20DA switched the list of combo disciplines in his first edition of the corebook, this was later fixed and an updated version should be avaible for free at drivethrurpg, just download the V20DA Corebook again and you should have the same version I have. The remaining combo disciplines that was removed from the corebook will return in The Tome of Secrets pdf ones it is published. Hope this helps :)Daniel P86 (talk) 20:41, February 11, 2016 (UTC)
