    Inconnu language ritual?

    I recall there being a blood magic ritual that the Inconnu used to teach their members some mystical language but it's not on any of the common wiki lists.

    Does anyone know it's name and source?

In my games, it's a (not insignificant) part of why the Tzimisce, Nosferatu and Gangrel have a close relationship in the Dark Ages setting, above and beyond their shared hatred for the Tremere. Having an ancestral "Langua Franca" in Animalism helped to inform their relationship with each other. I've also, by extension, used it as a way for the Byzantine/Eastern European Tzimisce and Nosferatu to slightly mirror the Lord/Vizier relationship between the Latin/Western Ventrue and Malkavians.

    It can be an interesting jumping off point for stories, too.

    Fun example story hook: A socially inclined, multilingual, vampire suddenly needing their Gangrel acquaintance to help translate for a bestial ancient that just rose up to find the human languages they knew are now discarded relics.

    Good to know i'm far from the only toynig with that kind of weird alternative uses of disciplines and other stuff.

And look quite esoterical/primal/weird in doing so to those without the power.

    Kashaph, on p.100 of Rites of the Blood. It's not a ritual, per se, but a Merit that is fluffed as being the result of the ritual mentioned wherein "the language of kashaph is inscribed upon their soul", which is left mostly vague and without actual mechanics. As is, it's a matter of ST fiat.

    And thus why I couldn't find it, didn't even think about looking at merits. Thanks.
