->''It is a truth universally acknowledged that nothing is more successful at inspiring a person to mischief as being told not to do something. Unfortunately, the Chantry of the Divine Age had some trouble with obvious truths. Although it did not outlaw magic--quite the contrary, as the Chantry relied upon magic to kindle the eternal flame which burns in every brazier in every chantry--it relegated mages to lighting candles and lamps. Perhaps occasional dusting of rafters and eaves.''

->I also dug the scenes where [Count Orlok] was manhandling the coffins filled with dirt.

->Prowess, might, vigor, intensity, puissance - no matter what name you describe it with, [[SuperStrength Potence]] is an impressive Discipline. Too many neonates think of it as a simple, brutal combat ability, but it is actually much more: it's actually a sophisticated, complex and unpredictable combat ability - coupled with its uses in Nosferatu [[WickedCultured art and architecture.]]
-> [[TunnelKing Expanding a city's sewer system]] takes more than political influence and faithful ghouls. When making improvements to the labyrinthine underworld beneath cities, Nosferatu often use Potence to assist the ghouls with the most difficult tasks. [[FastTunnelling Tunneling through solid rock]], moving chunks of rock and concrete, or just collapsing a tunnel with a powerful blow are also useful skills in Nosferatu construction.
