** It's part of the Camarilla's myopic hypocrisy. They have their Traditions, their vampire laws, and do anything to prop them up, including publishing translated compilations of recovered fragments of the Book of Nod, supposedly written by Caine himself, and portraying the Traditions as his personal vampire laws, to give them extra legitimacy, since they were handed down by vampiric God himself. But those Antediluvians? Pa, fairy tales. . . never mind that the whole last third of the most complete Book of Nod is nothing but prophecies about the time the Antediluvians rise and start killing everyone.

** VillainDecay. The Sabbat were originally pure antagonists, so their "Fuck the Masquerade" mentality worked. Players started finding them more interesting than the DesignatedHero Camarilla, so they were retooled to be playable, and the emphasis on discarding the Camarilla Traditions was downplayed to keep the game from breaking wide open.

** In game terms, if memory serves, a cow, notably larger than a human, has five blood points, ''half'' what an adult human has. ''That's'' how UN-nourishing animal blood is.

** Like many V:tM headscratchers, you can dismiss it by saying [[AWizardDidIt it's a magic-related]]. Just like another Lasombra, Marcus Vitel, who had a magic clasp that negated his clan weakness. [[GameBreaker Try to think about that for a second]].

* It bugs me that in oWoD VtM, there was any doubt about the existence of Antediluvians. Two clans came up out of nothing through Ante diablerie in the last few hundred years, and a major faction is saying "yes, they're out there, controlling us". So why does the Camarilla deny their existence to a man?

*** I hate to unsolve this problem because that is a good answer, and works for vampires in the Blade or Underworld universes who are harmed by UV light......but Kindred aren't. As shown in the video game, [[VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines Bloodlines]], UV light doesn't hurt them, it is a magical curse.

* According to the Clan Novel Saga, Lasombra signature character Lucita has a tattoo in the shape of a black rose on her breast. How is this supposed to work? Lucita was a medieval Aragonese princess, tightly surveilled by her father and his retainers. She couldn't exactly run off one night to get a tattoo during her mortal days. But modifications made to the Kindred body disappear within the night, or within days, at most.

*** Animal blood gives a lot less energy than human. I for get the actual rules but basically you need to drink much more from an animal to get one blood point. As such you have to be pretty dedicated to feed on animals only, since you'll need to spend a lot longer each night feeding. Also the Beast wants human blood; stick to animal and it's harder to fight off.


Added DiffLines:

*** The Sabbat internal logic seems to go "eventually we will rule over the pathetic humans openly but right now we're fighting the Camarilla so best not start a war on two fronts." Tacitly admitting that humans are genuinely threatening but hypocrisy is part and parcel of the Sabbat. Note that they rail against the elder oppression of the Camarilla while mostly doing that their elders say anyway.

** The Sabbat unofficially agree with the Masquerade in principle, as they've also seen first-hand what happens when the kine are riled up, but they still hold the Camarilla and their methods in contempt - as much because of old hatreds between specific clans (like the Ventrue and Lasombra, or Tzimisce and Tremere) as actual philosophical differences. The Sabbat see the whole structure of the Camarilla as a giant pack of puppets serving the elders and maybe even the Antediluvians, and the fixation on Humanity as a weakness. Plus, for all the Sabbat go on about their contempt for the Masquerade, at the end of the day they're all still territorial, paranoid, opportunistic predators who can't help but ultimately be hypocrites forced by their nature to play some of the same games for which they condemn others. Though they'll still occasionally violate the Masquerade just to make the Camarilla waste time and resources covering it up.
