From publisher blurb:
Curses of the Clans
The diverse Curses of the thirteen Clans and their bloodlines in many ways define them, shaping their mindsets and cultures even as they suffer under them. From the fury of the Brujah to the ravenous hunger of the Assamites, from the Toreador’s irresistible fascination with beauty to the Malkavians’ broken minds, these are infamous and well-documented.
Passed through the Ages
But these are not the only Curses known to the race of Caine, nor are they static and unchanging. This installment of the first volume of a four-part series expands on many areas of Vampire: The Masquerade, unearths new Curses, and builds upon the existing ones.
Curses of the Clans includes:
The expansion of each Clan weakness into progressive Curses, most of which develop in three stages.
Two additional detailed Curses for each Clan, to use alongside or in place of the main Clan Curses.
Variant Curses for antitribu, Giovanni Families, Nosferatu factions, and other offshoot bloodlines.
Though not all Kindred bear the brand of corruption upon their flesh and within their minds, those who do suffer greatly under its presence on a nightly basis. The horrific forms of Clan Nosferatu, the beastial Marks and Urges borne by Clan Gangrel, and even the Signs of infernal damnation flaunted by Kindred of Clan Baali all exact a great toll upon the unliving form and consciousness.
Of Body, Mind, and Soul
The forms by which the brand of affliction takes is truly boundless, much to the disgust of other Kindred. This book, the second of the first volume of a four-part series expands on many areas of Vampire: The Masquerade, detailing the abhorrent characteristics of Clans Nosferatu, Gangrel, and Baali.
Abhorrence, a new Attribute to replace Appearance for characters otherwise limited from using Appearance, with over twenty features to use in visualising them (each split into multiple levels of severity).
200 atavistic Marks and Urges of Clan Gangrel.
160 Signs of physical and spiritual corruption for Baali.
