Succubus Club: Dead Man's Party
Written by: Richard Chillot and Christopher Kobar
June 2nd, 2003

Everyones Invited
The Damned are solitary monsters, contriving elaborate social situations for themselves to deny the prominence of the Beast. Parties and other social affairs from graceful soirees to brutal Sabbat ritae are the foundation of undead reputation. Hosting such affairs, whether as a pack priest or as a nascent prince, can be as arduous a process as claiming a domain.

The Beautiful and Damned
For players looking to enhance their characters status or reputation, Succubus Club: Dead Mans Party is an invaluable resource. Covering all the stages of planning a social affair from concept to implementation (and aftermath), this title is invaluable for players who want to participate in the grandiose social structure of the undead. This book contains information useful to Kindred of all clans, sects, ages and generations.


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!

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.

 


Mexico City by Night - Episode 71

In this episode, we discuss the city sourcebook for the capital of Sabbat, Mexico City. Known as "Black Babylon," this book is a must-have for any storyteller looking to take their players into the depths of the Sabbat. It was written by Written By: Philippe R. Boulle, Dean Shomshack and Lucien Soulban on August 5th, 2002 for White Wolf Studios. 

We will be taking a short vacation the weekend of April 27th - 29th. We will not be publishing any podcasts that week. Enjoy Spring Break!  

*Some of you may notice that this book is reviewed out of order. Yep. That's totally true. It's because my memory is shit and I misquoted our next book last week. So here it is, as promised. Next week, we review Clanbook: Lasombra as normal.*

Mexico City by Night
Written by: Philippe R. Boulle, Dean Shomshack and Lucien Soulban
August 5th, 2002

Stronghold of the Sabbat 
The city teems with over 20 million mortals.  Since the dawn of the New World, Mexico ity has been the bastion of the Sword of Caine.  In the modern nights it remains that way, though plagued by Cainite overpopulation and sundered from within by internal dissent.  Although it presents a bold faceade, how strong is the Sabbat's sprawling home?

The Storytellers Handbook to the Sabbat - Episode 14


Thanks for checking back with us! In today's podcast, we discuss the MAJORITY of The Storytellers Handbook to the Sabbat. Towards the back third of the podcast, our recording machine took a dump, so the podcast cuts abruptly. Anyways, we are essentially working with cans and string. Thanks for your patience. Without further ado...

Storytellers Handbook to the Sabbat is the second sourcebook to describe the Sabbat, and serves as a companion to the earlier Players Guide to the Sabbat. The Handbook fleshes out background elements of the sect, and introduces two new Sabbat bloodlines. The book advanced the characterization of the Sabbat as thoroughly infested with infernalists, which persisted until Vampire: The Masquerade Revised Edition. This book also introduced the notion of Vicissitude as an infection — a concept that was later revisited in a drastically different form in Dirty Secrets of the Black Hand.

The Players Guide to the Sabbat - Episode 11

In this episode, we discuss the book, "the Players Guide to the Sabbat." It is the first Vampire: the Masquerade sourcebook to fully describe the Sabbat. Many prominent Sabbat-related elements of the setting, such as the antitribu and the Paths of Enlightenment, were introduced for the first time in this book. Additionally, the Lasombra and Tzimisce were described in detail for the first time in this book. This is a much longer podcast than normal, and we hope you folks enjoy it. We tried not to ramble or get overly detailed, but clearly the Sabbat is something we enjoy as players and storytellers. Thanks for listening!


the Players Guide to the Sabbat - 1992
Written By: Steven C. Brown

By Any Means Necessary
The Sabbat: a sect of diabolists and murderers whose sole purpose seems to be wanton destruction. These Night Fiends reject the ancient laws of the undead and revel in the fear and hatred they inspire, considering them tributes to their strength and courage.
The Prince of Freedom is Death
But there is a method to their madness. They are the true saviors of the undead, something only they can or will see. The Sabbat has gathered power for centuries, allying with the darkest powers of the supernatural, growing and expanding with only one purpose — the utter destruction of the Antediluvians.
