Disciplines

Main article: Discipline

Each clan has access to only 3 Disciplines. They are very powerful and expensive to improve. They all cost blood to activate. Some may break the Masquerade if seen by humans.

Masquerade

Main article: Masquerade

The Masquerade is the code of secrecy that hides vampire existence from humankind. Violations of the Masquerade will lead to ambush attacks from human vampire hunters, and scorn, contempt or worse from your fellow Kindred. If you lose all Masquerade points, you will lose the game.

Humanity

Main article: Humanity

Humanity is a representation of how far a vampire is from the Beast within themselves. When the Player's Humanity is at zero, they go into a frenzy and attack anyone or anything in their way. Humanity can be Increased and decreased depending on the Player's actions, or spending experience points.

Histories

Some patches/mods will change the list of histories on offer, as a result the below may not be a full list of what you will see in-game.

Brujah

True Brujah

Many blame the stereotype of the rebellious Brujah on Troile, the hot-blooded Methuselah whose progeny comprise the bulwark of modern Clan Brujah. You share no blood with Troile. As such, you are predisposed to learned idealism instead of belligerent iconoclasm.

Anda Gangrel

Descendant of nomadic vampire warriors, you were bred for extreme trials of endurance. You start with extra points in Stamina and Fortitude. Anda blood is not of this land, however, and your spirit is not linked with the native fauna, so Animalism costs you more experience to raise.

Mortician

The irony isn't lost on you now. All those nights in the echoing silence with the husks of former humanity. You always thought it was your fate you were staring into. Then one night it happened. Finally. One of them – a hell of a fine specimen, you were thinking – woke up.
―Flavor text
  • Gender: Male
  • Bonus: Swap the priority order of your Abilities to Skills, Knowledges, Talents.

Chupacabra

Rumor has it you are descended from the legendary Chupacabra – the blood-frenzied devil that has haunted the Mexican countryside for generations.

―Flavor text
  • Gender: Male
  • Bonus: Protean +1
  • Penalty: Max Fortitude of 3

Insectoid

Maybe it's the vague compulsion to spin a web, or when you catch yourself trying to use your imaginary feelers, but something tells you your Gangrel blood is exceptional.

You can't raise Wits, Charisma, and Appearance above three.
―Flavor text
  • Gender: Both
  • Bonus: +40% Fortitude and Protean duration
  • Penalty: -1 to Wits, Charisma, Appearance, and Animalism

Eerie Presence

Most mortals have no problem fitting in to mortal society. You don't know what it is, but you just can't pull it off.

In undeath your now-stunted sexual appetite has reemerged in a curious way; you more readily digest the fluids of the opposite sex, and therefore gain extra blood when feeding on men.

―Flavor text
  • Gender: Both
  • Bonus: +1 Brawl and Melee
  • Penalty: Max Firearms skill cannot exceed 0

Doomseer

The paralyzing fear of eternal death has an iron grip on you. Doom is just around the corner, for you, for everyone, you just know it. And you lack faith in your vampiric abilities.

  • Gender: Both
  • Bonus: +1 to Dementation.
  • Penalty: Dodge maximum of 3.

Occult Nut

Who would ever have thought that any of it could be real? You loved dark fantasies and considered yourself Occult-savvy.
