    I think it's a matter of interpretation but the Sabbat of V5 seem to have a very strong Loyalist bent to them. They've done away with most of the Sabbat's heirarchy, eliminated the status difference between the Lasombra/Tzimisce and Antitribu (which the Panders were all about), and now are enforcing the war against the Elders that was the original sect's goals to the exclusion of all else. Yes, there's an irony that they're all cannon fodder for the sect now but they're EQUAL as cannon fodder!

    Because change is exciting.

    The whole purpose of metaplot is to give your characters something to react to.

    To use an example:

    "Saruman comes to Hobbiton" is objectively bad for your Hobbit PCs but now your Hobbits have something to play against. It's a creation of adventures and gives your PCs something to have opinions on.

    As a Sabbat player, this is a crucible for the sect. What do you do in the face of so much change?
