Lore of the Bloodlines
Written by: Various
April 26th, 2017
The Clans are not the only vampires that strut, if I might steal from the Bard, upon this great stage of fools. There are the errant Kindred inaccurately collected under the sobriquet of "bloodlines." While their role in the eternal conflict between the childer of Caine is small, it is often incredibly impactful.

As such, I provide this corollary to my original study. It would be the work of several lifetimes to find and document every tiny aberration or fleeting dead end that constitutes a variation from one of the thirteen. Instead, I have focused on nine that I know for certain have an impact in our little culture war of the dead. From the brain-washed abominations of Tremere magic to vampires twisted by demonic will to the remnants of Clans long thought dead, each of these so-called “bloodlines” have their place in society. There is no larger picture for them — for us — to be a part of. Here on the fringes, each vampire’s experience is unique.


Clanbook: Brujah Revised - Episode 56

In this episode, we talk overly long about one of our favorite Clanbooks, and, well, clans: the Brjuah. For many of us, our first experience with Vampire: the Masquerade involved playing this clan directly, and they've shaped our perceptions of the game, pop-culture and vampires as a whole. Thank you for listening, as well as, your continued support!

Clanbook: Brujah Revised
Written by: Justin Achilli
May 1st, 2000


Brutes and Bravos, Intellectuals and Idealists
Since the clan’s first nights, the history of the Brujah has been one of struggle and passion. Whether challenging the tyranny of feudalism or rallying against stagnant institutions, the Brujah take their fight into the modern nights. Philosopher or thug, a Brujah wears her emotions on her sleeve; woe to those who get in her way.

Intellectuals and Idealists
As the second entry in the revised lineup of clanbooks, Brujah 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.

Vampire Storytellers Handbook - Episode 52

In this episode, we converse about the Revised Edition Storytellers Handbook. Spoiler alert: we dig it a lot! This book contains material to help storytellers iron out their worlds, story-tell in the World of Darkness, as well as, strategies for every kind of road block they might face. This is a truly invaluable tool for anyone running a game in the Classic World of Darkness.

Vampire Storytellers Handbook
January 2nd, 2000
Written by: 
Bruce Baugh, Anne Sullivan Braidwood, Deird're Brooks, Geoffrey C. Grabowski, Clayton Oliver and Sven Skoog
The Final Nights Hide a Million Stories
From the hidden horrors of the Camarilla to the naked fiendishness of the Sabbat, vampires play at the eternal Jyhad. Elders, ancillae, neonates, and... others... prowl the nights. Only one individual knows all the secrets of the World of Darkness.

And They Must All Be Told
The role of the Storyteller is a daunting one, and this book is an invaluable aid for those who orchestrate Vampire chronicles. It includes a myriad of information, including enigmas best left out of players' hands, to create stories and populate the casts of epic tales. The Vampire Storytellers Handbook revised edition leaves no stone unturned — except those that hide secrets no mortal should know.
