* ''VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'' had a few saddening moments, not least of which was Heather Poe's [[spoiler: death at the hands of the Sabbat.]]

* And just to make sure you still haven't lost sight of your guilt, you have Julius the Thin-Blood begging for his life, begging you to find your heart.

* And just to make sure you still haven't lost sight of your guilt, you have Julius the Thin-Blood begging for his life, begging you to find your heart.heart as you prepare to kill him for leaking secrets of the Masquerade to an aspiring film writer.



* The chance meeting with the PC and Samantha can be quite depressing, even more so if you use the persuasive route. Samantha, a friend/relative of the PC before he/she became a vampire, tells the PC that his/her family's basically worried sick and have been looking for him/her ever since he/she disappeared. After showing great concern for the player, Samantha tells him/her that it's alright and offers to call the PC's family. The problem is, that's a Masquerade violation and you can't let her call them. If you try to persuade her that you're someone else, she'll almost ''desperately'' insist you ''have'' to be her missing loved one, you just have to be. If you're successful at convincing her, Samantha gives you ''very'' down-hearted apology of her mistake before sadly walking away. This is arguably doubles a player punch and a meanly subverted crowning moment of heart warming.
** The encounter really brings home something that isn't touched upon at any point in the game: You are a fledgling and the Embrace was forced on you. As far as your human friends and family know, you just fell off the map one night.

* Arguably the fact that the world will end after the events of the game meaning everyone dies.

to:

* Arguably the fact that, in the main OldWorldOfDarkness canon, [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Gehenna]] is not only proven to be real, but eventually ''occurs''; [[DoomedByCanon making everything that happens over the world will end after course of ''Bloodlines'' meaningless]]. In particular, we have [[AdventurerArchaeologist Beckett]], who researches relics of vampiric history and yet fervently ''denies'' that Ghenna, Caine and the events of the game meaning everyone dies. Antediluvians are real.


Added DiffLines:

** Even worse, if you give the diary and the wife's amulet to Jeanette, [[spoiler: she throws both into the ocean to spite her sister (who had wanted to clear the ghosts out and sell the property), ensuring that the ghosts will be forever trapped in the hotel, unable to move on.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Reading the Ghost House Diary found in the kitchen reveals the husband killed everyone over a misunderstanding, believing his wife was cheating (she wasn't). This detail only becomes more unsettling as if you read, it clearly states the wife was killed in a bathroom she locked herself in, but you find the Diary next to an empty bottle of booze in the kitchen, meaning he most likely figured out what happened from reading and got drunk. It's also never stated in the diary the fire started before her death, meaning he possibly committed suicide after having a WhatHaveIDone moment.

* Trying to coax V.V. on the subject of her past as a human - specifically, by calling her [[spoiler:Susan]] - will result in you being given the saddest, gentlest brush-off, even if she's in love with your character by this point:

** It's even ''worse'' for a Malkavian fledgeling. The fact that Samantha, and others, cared about and were looking for the fledgeling shows that before their embrace, they were probably (relatively) fully functional human beings with friends and family. Now they've become little more than gibbering [[CloudCuckoolander Cloud Cuckoolanders]] who can barely hold a decent conversation without descending into madness.

* At the end of the Voerman questline, [[spoiler: if Jeanette dies, just look at the expression on Therese's face. Pure heartbreak out of the Ice Queen we thought she was.]]
