Vampire: The Masquerade - Redemption - Retrospective @ Big Download
"Retrospective" is probably a bit grand for this short article (despite being spread over five pages) but it's always interesting to read about these games:
Character development for Vampire Redemption is vastly different from most RPGs. Rather than having levels that you gain, you spend experience points as a form of currency to upgrade your character's disciplines and attributes. As the attributes get higher, the cost of raising them grows as well. The game keeps track of the total number of experience points you have gained, while the actual number you have available is right underneath that. Attributes fall into three categories, each of which has three attributes: physical (such as strength), mental (such as intelligence), and personality (such as charisma). Certain disciplines use certain attributes, and specializing is incredibly important if you want to finish the game.
