And now, for that social anxiety flaw to come up. So easy to exploit in the right circumstances.

Reminds me of my old Vampire WoD, Maria Ivonar....
Yes it's a sonic reference, I suck with modern names.
She was a Daeva, and disputed not being the face, I completely overloaded her charisma because.... I felt like it.
She was uber compassionate and more "nibbled" then bit, as she put it.
I became the face's best pal as he was sort of a social dagger in the dark.... I was a social warhammer, utilizing the DM not expecting my socially inept ass to actually come up with any dialog, and my SEVEN dots of charisma.... And that was before blood points or willpower being spent.
Game may if lasted longer, but our ventrue did not seem to understand one can be a vampire WITHOUT BEING HITLER DRACULA... He kept insulting the other PC's for not "doing it right", Specially Maria the Compassionpire...
Even after we murdered his character for killing a nice guy who witnessed supernatural stuff that we were gonna make into a Ghoul(not as bad as it sounds, considering the alternative as our job was basically The Coverup Crew), when it was unanimously decided not to, the games Morale was Basically spent so it dissolved...
Don't ask why the Ventrue was not the face, it should be obvious from the story XD
One team mate was human because he was a Hipster, he was a Psychic the Camarilla re ruined cuz he could effect vampires n' shit via the DMs attempt to make the character WORK...
He had like five times the XP to spend then the rest of us... And he was still our weakest member.. He became Maria's bestie, as she was a Nurse before she was Embraced, and a a mature chef, and he was the only one who needed either.
I rambled again! Sorry!
A large dice pool in Shadowrun is hardly grounds for automatic success. Glitches happen.
this place needs more stories
Tell a story about broken charisma!
One of my early attempts at DMing had a player who used forged documents at lvl 1 to convince the townspeople that he was their rightful ruler and incited a rebellion against the king. Which they then won throughout the campaign resulting in him ACTUALLY becoming the ruler of a small nation. Fun times
