Happy New Year, everyone! In this episode, we discuss the awesome, under-rated and often overlooked "Secrets of Thaumaturgy" Sourcebook from the Vampire: the Masquerade game line. In this guide, you'll find the histories, concepts and modern practices of blood magics. Often assumed to be the sole purveyance of Clan Tremere, this book sheds light on the paths practiced by other clans, as well as the dark arts of Necromancy.
