I bought the book Vampire The Masquerade V5 to be able to play this new version with my players. However, even after a dozen readings, I still do not understand how the half-bloods and their alchemy work.
To clarify, first, as I read it, the thin blood begins without any sense in the disciplines and no point in the alchemy of thin blood (if they do not take a merit that gives them others) that seems strange to me (at least for the alchemy of blood, because how they learn it if they have no interest). Secondly, it seems that blood-based preparations are only temporary, but I do not understand when the powers conferred by the formula disappear. Third, it seems that their way of preparing this formula is different, which makes it a different effect, but I do not really understand what these effects are.
