From the formation of the Tremere clan to the creation of the Camarilla and Sabbat, to the war against the demon, Kapala, you’ll stand against the tide of destiny and the final nights.

An Epic of Tumult

Dracula stalks the night, Kupala rages beneath the cursed land of Transylvania and Paris burns in revolution.

The Sabbat are depraved monsters, reveling in their Damned state and herding the kine about them like cattle. Or so it would seem to the uninitiated.

Roses watered with blood
It has been over five centuries since the curtain of the Masquerade was drawn across the stage of the Kindred. It has been five centuries of secrecy, tradition and lies, five centuries of hidden elegance and terror.
It has been five centuries since anyone knew the truth.
Now, at last, the curtain will be drawn back. The lies will be exposed. And maybe, just maybe, the truth will be revealed to you.

Giovanni Chronicles IV: Nuova Malattia
Written by: Heather Grove and Matthew McFarland
1999 (Unknown date)

A New Sickness
An unhealthy development is taking place in Boston, Massachusetts - the ascension of the Milliner family of Clan Giovanni. From their surreptitious beginnings in the shadow of the Kennedy empire to their sinister prominence at the end of the 20th century, the Milliner history is one of treachery and cunning manipulation. Can the characters carve their own place out of Boston's dwindling resources, or will they be swept along with the tide of the Giovanni's inexorable conquest?

An Old, Unbeating Heart
The final installment of the Giovanni Chronicles resolves the mysterious ending of The Sun Has Set, including the significance of the sought-after Sargon Fragment. The story takes place in some of the most memorable and exciting periods of American history, from the Roaring 20s to the looming terror of the modern nights. Players get a chance to help or hinder the newest machinations of Clan Giovanni, including participating in Boston's desperate attempt to remain independent of Camarilla and Sabbat influence.
