    So what’re you’re saying is John dies at the end?

    Any hints to when we’re going to find out Al Capone’s fate? 🙂

    Concerning Samuel Height, at the time he and the associated material was despised by fans because it seemed like he was someone’s wish fulfillment, a ‘Mary Sue’ – though the term hadn’t been created yet.

      Sure, some fans probably thought that was the case. Not universally, however.

    You can’t be a famous vampire because people will recognize you? Seriously? 🙂

    ABout the Hardestadt issue:

    In “Who’s Who Among Vampires: Children of the Inquisition” said that the Camarilla was officially formed in 1435, after Tyler, born as Patricia of Bollingbroke, made a diablerie in one of their Founders in 1395. But in Giovanni Chronicles I: Last Supper he’s still exists in 1444 and 1666, in Giovanni Chronicles II: Blood & Fire. So Transilvania Chronicles II fixed that, telling that the Founder was actually his childe Hardestadt the Young posing as his sire. He’s generation was only fixed in the revised edition with the first apperance of Jan Pieterzoon, the childe of Hardestadt the Younger.
