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! 


Psst. Did you know that we reward some of our Patreon backers with an online vampire game called, Curse of Caine? Even if you don't want to play (which deeply saddens me), there are links to the server so you can hang out, read some V:tM role-play, and make new friends!

Clanbook: Lasombra
Written by: Bruce Baugh
December 26th, 2001

 Born of Darkness
 The Final Nights have twisted the nobility of the Keepers clan, turning them into the aristocrats of that diabolical sect. Their legacy of shadows eclipses the light thrown by their packs ritual fires. But are the Lasombra truly the esteemed leaders of the Sword of Caine or do they simply abuse it to serve their own ends?

The Lords of the Sabbat
As the next entry in the revised lineup of clanbooks, Lasombra 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.

 


Clanbook: Giovanni Revised - Episode 65

In this episode, we review the Revised edition of Clanbook: Giovanni, for Vampire: the Masquerade. We discuss the role of the clan in the Final Nights, and how the events in the World of Darkness have impacted their family. This incestuous clan of Necromancers have remained independent, as much to evade politics, as to avoid scrutiny on the path to their final goal of 100,000,000 souls. This book was written by Greg Stolze with John Chambers, with additional material by Justin Achilli. It was published April 30th, 2001 by White Wolf Publishing.

Clanbook: Giovanni Revised
Written by: Greg Stolze with John Chambers
April 30th, 2001

 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.

The Curse of Caine Stolen
As the next entry in the revised lineup of clanbooks, Giovanni 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.

Noble Savages? Or Savages Unbound?
As rogues and wanderers, the Gangrel have always placed themselves apart from other Kindred. The Outlanders have no need for the petty Jyhads and useless sniping of the undead - they are vampires, the highest order of beasts! Now, Clan Gangrel prowls the night unfettered by the traditions of the crumbling Camarilla. They have finally called the night their own.

 


Clanbook: Ventrue Revised - Episode 51

In this episode, we go to great lengths and discuss the supremely superior revised edition of Clanbook: Ventrue. Spoiler alert: we really like this book, especially when compared to the previous version! Also, this is the first addition of LARP rules included in the clanbooks! Bonus!

Clanbook: Ventrue
August 16, 2000
Written by: Richard Dakan
Noblesse Oblige

Capitalists, aristocrats, crusaders, and criminals: The Ventrue have assumed the prestigious but demanding role of leaders. Forever in the line of fire, they have sacrificed their comfort for the good of all Kindred. Or is this all an empty ruse that excuses their excess and greed? The proud history and black secrets of the clan reveal the truth.

Clanbook: Ravnos - Episode 42

In this episode, we review and discuss the Ravnos Clanbook. Known for being wandering vagabonds and hucksters, the Ravnos are charlatans who gleefully practice their arts of deception and theft. 

This review marks the final Clanbook review of Second Edition. You may have noticed, this clanbook actually came out before Clanbook: Giovanni. That's because I messed up the order. These things happen. 

Thanks to all of you who have listened to us over the past year! We've had a great time doing this podcast, and all the kind words and support have been awesome and overwhelming! Here's to another great year of content, and to all the new White Wolf material coming down the pipeline! You folks are a wonderful community!

Clanbook: Ravnos
Written by: Christopher Walters
Feb. 20th, 1997

Gypsies, vagabonds and charlatans, the cunning vampires of Clan Ravnos roam the night as they indulge in the most dangerous of games — lying to the liars, tricking the tricksters, and gleefully receiving curses from the Damned. From Bel Air to Bombay, from Shanghai to Sarajevo, these nomadic vampires wander where their citybound Kindred fear to tread. Now learn of the Ravnos' secret arts, and the centuries of hate that can lie behind a jester's smile.

    July 14th, 1997

    Bury yourself in this book...
    You've matched wits with Malkavians and done business with Ventrue. You've survived the soirees of the Nosferatu and the dungeons of the Tzimisce. Now, in this final clanbook, descend into the nightmare crypts of the incestuous Giovanni.

    Written by: Richard E. Dansky and Elizabeth Ditchburn
    March 1st, 1996
    From their webs of shadows the Lasombra guide the destiny of the dread Sabbat. Unseen even by mirrors, these lords of darkness glide through the night they rule, orchestrating the rise and fall of Kindred and kine alike. From the Sahara Desert to the Spanish Main, from the monasteries of Seville to the mean streets of New York City, no other clan so embodies what it means to be a vampire.


    Clanbook: Assamite - Episode 37

    In this episode, we deep dive into the clan of vampire assassins known as the Assamites. We converse, discuss and totally geek out.

    Clanbook: Assamite
    March 15th, 1995
    Written by: Graeme Davis

    Feared by all yet courted by many, refusing outside allegiances yet willing to hunt Kindred for a payment of blood, the Assamites are among the most reclusive clans. Once hunted, these vampire assassins are now sought out by the Kindred to dispose of their enemies. Fearful takes are told of their skill in hunting the most dangerous prey, their bravery in combat, and their fierce loyalty to their clan. Yet the tellers of these tales do not guess at the truth: the millennia of warfare, the roots of the Jyhad, and the clan mysteries which no outsider has ever seen.


    Clanbook: Setites -Episode 36

    In this episode, we dive into the dark pits of vice and corruption that is Clan Setite. The followers of Set count themselves alone as being progeny of a true God, unlike their cousins in lesser clans.  Also, mummies, werewolves and vampires, oh my.

    Clanbook: Setites
    Feb. 11th, 1995
    Written by: Richard Watts
    We are the small voice that whispers to you in the lonely hours of the night. We call to the darkness within all of you. We came from the dark, and to the dark we shall all return...

    Called the corrupt by even the most crooked Ventrue, the Setites are almost universally mistrusted and feared by the clans of the Camarilla, and scorned by the Sabbat for their unwillingness to share in the Vaudalrie.
