What stats should I give to a vampire who was just embraced? For example, if a player sought permission from the Prince successfully (no matter how he did it…), or if he is a Sabbat member who is mass embracing. Should I generate him just as I would generate a normal character?
Someone told me that Camarilla neonates/fledglings built at character creation actually aren't that young, they already spent some time being vampires. He also told me that Sabbat shovelheads typically have just Disciplines on level one, and are typically weak. I asked him to support his point by an official source, and he responded with "No, you!"
What do the books say about it?
If vampires get those 3 free dots of Disciplines when embraced, are they already familiar with them, how to use them, etc.? With things such as Potence, Fortitude or Celerity it's obvious, but can one understand how to use, say, Obfuscate or Thaumaturgy when just embraced? In the same case, why don't vampires ghoul potential embraces before it happens so they get 1 more in-clan discipline dot and Potence?
