Not necessarily in that detail, however in later versions we will start making this editions. We will patch the game several times during the course of the year. as you report in stuff we will try making those justifications.
I like the fact that the non-essential things are not delaying the first release, oh thanks Kupala. I'm too much excited xD
Hum, I think I didn't say before but I like the Helicopter detail a lot, it gives life to the scenario as you said. It remembers me to Duke Nukem 3D an old game which had those kind of details.
Ice, the rogue Assamite sounds awesome.
Nasty, your question arises an interesting subject. In truth, sometimes the Clan of a vampire is a guess made by the players. For example, Brother Kanker is a pretty obvious Nosferatu but guessing that Jezebel and Vick are, respectively, a Toreador and a Brujah is really a guess, the two could be Toreador or Brujah, one of them be a Caitiff, or both, etc.
