If you have no choice but to destroy a Nosferatu, do not, under any circumstances, confront him on his home territory. We will never find your ashes.
al-Ashrad, Vampire: The Masquerade - Clanbook: Assamite (Revised)
While our enemies, including the Muslims and the arrogant Technocrats - may their souls roast on a spit in hell - have pushed us into the wastes at every turn, we are now the rulers of the wasteland and our enemies are not welcome here. In this place, our magic and mastery of the Djinn assures our superiority. Do not believe that the arrogant Technocrats - may their souls roast on a spit in hell - have not tried to make incursions. Within the Empty Quarter, the paradigm is not theirs, but ours. Reality will not burn me because I fly on a carpet, because I call down fire from the sun or because I catch storms in a bottle. And it's amazing how often your precious technology fails out here: sand chokes engines; lines go down; batteries go dead.

Never try to catch one at home: that's pretty much sticking your hand in a rattlesnake pit and trying to grab one safely. If you have to deal with the Tremere, try to draw them out to neutral ground, if you can make such a thing exist. They're powerful in their lairs, and their magic can kill you dead. Just so you know.
