[1]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.

We are free to create our own truths amidst the lies.

Lore of the Bloodlines [1] is a single volume companion to Lore of the Clans [2] that revisits some of the bloodlines in Vampire: The Masquerade 20th Anniversary Edition, providing story hooks, character concepts, history, and bloodline-specific rules. The secrets of the Baali, Daughters of Cacophony, Gargoyles, Harbingers of Skulls, Kiasyd, Nagaraja, Salubri, Samedi, and True Brujah are now yours.

Lore of the Bloodlines includes:

– The history, lore, and nightly practices of nine bloodlines, told from the perspective of the Kindred themselves.
– New combo Disciplines, powers, Merits, Flaws, and other rules specific to each bloodline.
– Revisions and updates of more classic Vampire: The Masquerade material to V20.

Lore of the Bloodlines was made possible by the backers of the Lore of the Clans Kickstarter campaign.

Lore of the Bloodlines is available now in PDF and Hardcover editions at the Flames Rising RPGNow Shop [1]!
