    The Sabbat also haven't been nuked since they play a large role in the Lasombra defection and show up in THE CHICAGO FOLIOS.

    Hell, while it's a minor role, they also play a role in THE FALL OF LONDON given Monty Coven's followers are all Sabbat.
    It is not obviously a darker setting, in face I can't see how you reach the conclusion that it is.

    Also, being mentioned to that parts of the sect can be torn away to be given to other sects is not really playing a large role. On Fall of London, haven't read it so can't properly comment.

    Bluntly no, I don't think any of your descriptions make for a better Path player. The Path is about the PHILOSOPHY behind it. It's why I always preferred Roads. The Tenets and rules are less important than the mindset.

    It's why I always preferred the Path of Caine and Path of Heaven.

    Lore heavy and PHILOSOPHY heavy rather than tenants. It's about how you ROLEPLAY not what you roll.

    Oddly, I think you could do all of that in the game better than before now. The players just have a lot more roleplaying freedom about what they think their Paths are about.

    A bunch of vampires with 0 connection with the rest of the sect and dont have any relevance to the metaplot.
    The metaplot of that book is the Rise of Mithras or his Fall. They could be Sabbat who end up taking down a 4th generation Ancient.

    9 clows acting on their own is not sabbat

    They are just goblins to the Pcs smash
    The PCs can actually work with them to diablerize Mithras.

    Right now for Sabbat:

    * Monty Coven: Utterly consumed by Mithras now.

    * The Harbingers of Skulls: Defected to the Hecata and have left the Sabbat.

    * Carolina Vasquez - Killed by traitor Lasombra.

    * Talley - Defected to Marcus Vitel and the Amis Noctis (for some value of defected), now a rogue.

    * Marcus Vitel - Current Baron/Emperor of Washington D.C.

    * Washington D.C. - Fallen to the Anarchs (for some value of the word)

    * Montreal - Fallen to Camarilla, Sabbat still present in the city.

    * Mexico City - Fallen to Camarilla.

    * Seven Fires: The Midwestern Sabbat, functioning autonomously as it's own Gehenna Cult.

    * The Amis Noctis: Defected to the Camarilla

    * Lucita - Possibly killed by Talley.

    * Polonia - Fighting the Gehenna War.

    * Vykos - Last seen being freed from the control of the Dracon.

    * Ecaterina the Wise: Defected to the Anarchs with Cristof.

    * Vasantasena: Defected to the Anarchs.

    * Doyle Fincher: Defected to the Church of Caine.
