* BrokenBase: a number of scandalous events surrounding the upcoming 5th edition of the game, such as hiring an infamous harasser to write their first digital release and a player character in the 5th edition playtest document who was seen as a pedophile by fans, have resulted in a good portion of the fanbase turning against the post-Paradox buyout White Wolf.

* BilingualBonus: The Shadow Clan is called Lasombra. Also, "Bruja" (that is, Brujah) is Spanish for witch, although this has basically nothing to do with the clan.

At direct war with the Camarilla are the Sabbat, a sect of vampire anarchist religious fanatics who say to hell with hiding from humans. Oddly, there are only two clans wholly steeped in the Sabbat (with the rest of the ranks filled by outcasts from their parent clan): The [[EvilIsStylish wickedly stylish]] [[MagnificentBastard Lasombra]] and the [[BlueAndOrangeMorality cold, alien-minded]] [[BodyHorror Tzimisce]]. There are four clans who fancy themselves independent: The Assamites, middle eastern [[ProfessionalKiller vampire assassins]], the Followers of Set, [[TheCorrupter vice-peddling schemers from Egypt]], the Giovanni, an inbred [[BigScrewedUpFamily family of Italian vampire aristos]], and the Ravnos, [[TheTrickster nomadic, illusionist thieves.]]

* YourSoulIsMine: How Diablerie generally works.

to:

* YourSoulIsMine: How Diablerie generally works. The twist is that it's mostly "evil" because it's inefficient, not because of the soul-consumption itself (regular feeding on mortals is thought to involve some soul-nibbling in itself). The feeding vampire gains a maximum of one age category, and the victim must be two higher for the practice to reliably result in any gains. So thousands of years of valuable life experience are being lost, with most of the soul 'escaping', and the loss to the community and more importantly your prince's court is often crippling.

* CrazyPrepared: The best way a Tremere or Tzimisce neonate can survive fights (except for avoiding them altogether). Advanced Vicissitude turns a Tzimisce into a close-combat monster and Thaumaturgy can be used to set enemies on fire, but until then both clans lack any straightforward combat disciplines. Unless the right body alterations are made or rituals prepared beforehand, the vampire will be dusted.

** In general, this is the attitude of any vampire that doesn't fall in line with the bulk of their clan, with the general term ''antitribu'' used to describe them. It cuts both ways - just as a Ventrue in the Sabbat is considered ''antitribu'', so is the rare Tzimisce in the Camarilla.

The only in-game exception are the Lasombra: While outgame descriptions mark the Camarilla part of the clan as ''antitribu'', ingame they resent the appellation and consider themselves the 'true' clan.



* HolyBurnsEvil: Potent True Faith can do this. Areas with high Ambient Faith ratings generally cause great discomfort to Kindred; but vampires with low Humanity and self-control can actually be destroyed by them. The Baali's bloodline weakness makes them particularly susceptible to this.

* OneStatToRuleThemAll: Generation is a potent thing indeed. Once a vampire gets a sufficient number of Generational brackets over you, there's basically no way to beat them without resorting to downright unfair methods.

Once a vampire gets a sufficient number of Generational brackets over you, there's basically no way to beat them without resorting to downright unfair methods. On a more mundane note, few attributes are as powerful as Dexterity, which is used for attacking and defending in combat as well as most physical challenges.


Added DiffLines:

** And the fifth edition brings it to its logical conclusion: Technologically illiterate elders, neonates with weak powers and Sabbati with disdain for staying hidden can't keep up the masquerade in an era of ubiquitous public and private cameras and mass surveillance - the Second Inquisition begins.

* DumpStat: Since there are so many skills introduced by each book, this is pretty common. Do you really need that point in Drive or Camarilla Lore when you can invest in Intelligence or Melee? There are far more useless skills than these as well.
