Clanbook: Lasombra Revised - Episode 72

In this episode, we save the best for last, maybe? I guess than depends on your opinion about the Lasombra clan. Anyways, we find it enjoyable and hope to impart some of that upon you! This book delves into the clan's relationship with the Sabbat, the supernatural command of the Abyss, and Lasombra's roots in the Mediterranean and connection with the sea. This book was written by Bruce Baugh with development by Justin Achilli and released December 26th, 2001 for White Wolf Publishing. 

Notice! We will be taking a break until May 4th, 2018 while Nathan moves to his new location! Thanks for your patience, and we'll be back with you in two weeks!

 The Final Nights have twisted the nobility of the Keepers clan, turning them into the aristocrats of that diabolical sect.

New York by Night
Written by: Justin Achilli
November 21st, 2001

One Sect Falls, Another Rises

In the wake of the Sabbat's aggressive campaign along the East Coast of the United States, the sect has spread itself too thin.

But with established princes and entrenched elders claiming domains elsewhere, to which Kindred will this new prize fall?

Sins of the Blood
Written by: Angel McCoy, Matthew McFarland, Joshua Mosqueira-Asheim, Aaron Rosenberg and Lucien Soulban
August 21st, 2001

Even the Damned Have Taboos
The rules of the Kindred are many, varied and Byzantine. No two princes interpret the Traditions alike; one bishops treason may be anothers valor. Still, even in such precarious societies, heresies arise and sometimes flourish. From foul diablerie to inhuman codes of morality, some Kindred shock the sensibilities of their fellows.

Forbiddance Begins with Undeath
Sins of the Blood explores the crimes of the Kindred in the many forms they take. Blood cults, ideological heresies, autarkis and all manner of rogues populate the pages of this book, suitable as antagonists for coteries or as inspirations for players characters.


Gilded Cage - Episode 68

In this episode, we review and discuss Gilded Cage. This book is a definitive sourcebook for politics and influence for Vampire: the Masquerade, and a must have book for those looking to explore these concepts in their games or with their characters. This book was written by Ari Marmell and Michael Mearls and developed by Justin Achilli in 2001 for White Wolf publishing.

Gilded Cage
Written By: 
Ari Marmell and Michael Mearls
July 23, 2001
The Cities are the Kindreds Domain
The Kindred are hidden masters of cities, growing sated on the blood of the vessels within. Their domains are built on the backs of the mortals they prey upon, their fortunes made by proxies, their havens visited by the famous to the infamous. The night belongs to those who can take what it has to offer.

As Well As Their Prison
A handbook of politics and treachery, The Gilded Cage explores how it is that the Kindred make places for themselves. From the savvy prince to the raucous iconoclast, all Kindred are inextricably tied to the cities where they make their havens, and to the mortals within. This book looks at power and influence, as well as how to cultivate it and cripple others.


Midnight Siege - Episode 67

In this episode, Nate and Bob talk about the 2001 release, Midnight Siege. This book is one of the first in a series that details the modern conflict between the Camarilla and the Sabbat, and how they wage war against one another. This book is a must for anyone who wants greater detail into the Jyhad in modern nights.

Midnight Siege
Written By:
 Gavin Bennett, Robert Hatch, 
Darren MacLennan, Michael Mearls, Jon Wilkie
June 11, 2001
 
 From Graceful Salons to the Halls of the Consistory

For half a millennium the Kindred of the Camarilla have warred with the Cainites of the Sabbat. In the modern nights, though, the sect war can no longer be hidden behind the armies of kings or the fires of the Inquisition. How then do the sects resolve their conflicts without alerting the oblivious eyes of the kine?

Domains Topple and Vitae Flows Freely
Midnight Siege takes a look at conflict between the Camarilla and Sabbat in a real-world sense. In an age of instant communication, the Children of Caine must be ever more careful to keep themselves hidden from the mortals who would destroy them. This book explains not only how the struggle between the sects takes place, but gives character and chronicle advice for stories that take place in the midst of such conflict.

Clanbook: Ravnos Revised
Written: by Deird’re Brooks
May 14, 2001

The End Is the Beginning Is the End
Long held in ill regard by other Kindred, the Deceivers nonetheless claim one of the oldest legacies of all the race of Caine. A young, vibrant clan, the Ravnos adapt, making the most of a hostile world and turning it to their advantage as best they can. To that end, was their near-total annihilation a Biblical punishment or a rebirth from the ashes of the impending Gehenna?

Blasphemies and Debasement
As the next entry in the revised lineup of clanbooks, Ravnos takes one of the classic Vampire sourcebooks and brings it into a modern context. All-new information accompanies revised material, inviting you to add as much depth to your character as you like. The sheer volume of information contained in the new clanbooks (each with 32 more pages than the first-edition books) permits Storytellers to round out their chronicles.

 Blood and Betrayal
Embraced by a fallen clan during nights long past, the Giovanni have always had ambition. Now they bring that ambition to bear on a world they would claim for themselves. With vast wealth, the ability to command the spirits of the dead, and a strict familial hierarchy, the greatest enemy to stand against Clan Giovanni is itself.

Clanbook: Tzimisce Revised
Written By: Lucian Soulban and James Stewart
Feb. 19th, 2001

A History of Evil
From the antitribu who forged the Sabbat to dreaded Dracula himself, the Tzimisce have carved an indelible place for themselves among the society of the Damned.
