AVC,AVST,ADC etcMost positions can have assistants... thus ADC is Assistant Domain Coordinator, and so forth.
CheeseA slang term, generally meaning character abilites that are powerful out of proportion to the cost. No system is perfect, and most game systems have the potential to be rorted. WoD is no exception...
Cheese or Cheesing is not necessarily a bad thing, as long as it isn't misused... but building stupidly optimized characters and then using them to kill or dominate other player characters is frowned upon.
NewbieA new player. New players are encouraged...please play!! and it is club policy to actively involve new players in plot, and avoid killing off new characters until they've had a chance to get used to the game. This is not an excuse to abuse the the system, though...
