Thank you guys for listening and your support. We’ll be off for the next few weeks over the holiday. Enjoy what ever it is you celebrate. Nobody reads this stuff. I’m nearly sure of it. If you do read it, the secret password is, “Hail Sithis!

Rites of the Blood
Written by: Alan Alexander, Jason Andrew, Matthew Sanderson, Ree Soesbee
July 9th, 2014

In the deepest crimson depths of their being, raw power waits to be brought to the surface. Through their force of will, Kindred can drag this power kicking and screaming into the open to perform miraculous feats and twisted blasphemies. These rituals have been developed to direct and focus this new force, unconstrained by the structure of the known Disciplines. As such, only one word has been seen fit to describe this power that has echoed throughout the ages. Magic.

Rites of the Blood 
is a collection of rituals practiced among the various Kindred sects and Clans. This isn’t just a collection of powers, but an examination of the sects themselves and how they use their eldritch mystical arts: the Thaumaturgy of the Camarilla Tremere, the bloody rites and patchwork sorcery of the Sabbat, the creepy and alien practices of the Tal’Mahe’Ra, “street” rituals from the Anarch contingent, the sorceries of the Assamites and Setites, the necromancy of the Giovanni, and even some of the mysterious ways of the Inconnu.


Blood Sacrifice: The Thaumaturgy Companion - Episode 73

In this episode, we discuss the idea of canonical characters, as well as, the "Blood Sacrifice - The Thaumaturgy Companion." This book contains additional paths of thaumaturgy not found in the original blood magic book. Blood Sacrifice focuses on other, non-Hermetic forms of blood sorcery. The book features the disciplines of Akhu (Setite sorcery), Dur-An-Ki (Assamite sorcery), Sadhana (Indian blood magic), and Wanga (Vodoun blood magic), and introduces the Tlacique bloodline and their Mesoamerican blood sorcery Discipline, Nahuallotl. 
This book was written by Dean Shomshak and Ari Marmell, and was released January 14th, 2002 by White Wolf Publishing. 


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!

Blood Sacrifice: The Thaumaturgy Companion
Written by: Dean Shomshak and Ari Marmell
January 14th, 2002

 Hidden Sorcery
While the Tremere have potent magic at their command, Hermetic tradition isnt the only source of mystic power. The ancient ways of Egyptian magic, the Sufic trances of the Middle East, sacrificial Hindu rites and the natural magic of Caribbean craft can all be used to affect the Final Nights. But what are these thaumaturgies capable of?

Or Abandoned Witchcraft?
Expanded information on non-traditional Thaumaturgy comprises Blood Sacrifice. This book includes four new styles of the Discipline, as well as paths and rituals for each. It also looks into the rare but unforgettable magical 'anomalies' that populate Vampires World of Darkness, those strange mystic artifacts that just seem to happen.

Blood Magic: Secrets of Thaumaturgy - Episode 55

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.

Jan. 12th, 2000
Written by:

Bruce Baugh, Chris Bjork, John Goff, Alan I. Kravit, Robin D. Laws and James Moore

Eldritch Texts and Kindred Blood
Blood magic, the jealously guarded secret of Clan Tremere, has long been observed with a wary eye. Is it the power of summoned demons? An application of the Blood's mystic properties? The will of spirits? Or is it something else altogether? Only those who master its dark secrets can know.

Hidden Lore Revealed
Blood Magic: Secrets of Thaumaturgy provides the answers to long-asked questions about this most powerful of Kindred Disciplines and explores a gamut of new possibilities. Included in the book are new paths and rituals as well as details on the lesser known but similar arcane practices. What is it about Thaumaturgy that has allowed the Tremere to ascend to prominence in the modern nights? This book examines the answer.
