    That is one seriously ugly vampire on the table stakes opening page. I've always wondered whether people use the lateral incisors or canines for their vampire fangs, and whether their existing teeth grow, or new ones slip out behind existing ones.

    I knew the 'bucktooth' vampire was a thing but still find it a little weird to look at.

    Observation, not a criticism, he's a nosferatu and his image is part of him.

      I actually really liked that one, just because it nails the uncanniness of the Norsferatu right on the head.

      It looks like there is a brief section on Elders and crossover at the end of the book.

        Some really nice mortal-ish antagonists in this. I love how Vampire is so great at making antagonists out of really good people, even walking miracles. Deborah's great.

        No werewolves in the crossover section, I'm guessing and hoping because of the Pack?

        There's some information on the Lost Clans, the Akhud, Julii, Pijavica, Hollow Mekhet, their curses, attributes and Disciplines. Also an updated Praestantia Discipline for the Akhud. Various new Elder Devotions and what it's like to be an Elder, obviously, and specifically what it's like to have Elder-level Attributes and Skills, which is going to be incredibly useful.

        The Table of Contents should be available in the previews underneath the book's image on DTRPG.

        Love the Undeniable Aura Merit.

        And the Pijavica.

            Julii have resilience, vigor and dominate? Neonates don't know about my Colossus. Overall like the Lost Clans stuff. Art gets better in later chapters

                    It's basically a Physical Discipline for Dexterity. The VII Akhud had it in first edition too. There's more to it fluff-wise. The active powers are pretty cool.

                      Anything on the lost covenants?

                      And what are the Inamorata, Empusa and the Lamia? What is That Which Does Not Die and King Kitamba? And what is a Dvora?

                        Oh, this sounds nice. I'd buy it just for a single one of the clans in it or the Elder powers. Having all that stuff togethers means I'll add this to my cart immediately. Now I just have to find the money

                          Ah, thanks much for that.

                          Definitely something to look forward to when I get paid.

                            Only a few mentions. There's one new covenant, the Cerberus Pact, and one new but hidden pact, the Body of a Nation. And it's implied that there are more..

                            And what are the Inamorata, Empusa and the Lamia?
                            Non-vampire but vampiric antagonists. Things like those in Night Horrors: the Wicked Dead. I wouldn't really say proto-vampires, though.

                            What is That Which Does Not Die and King Kitamba? And what is a Dvora?
                            I thought this section was strangely labelled in the Table of Contents, it doesn't seem like the subsections are subsections. The section is 'That Which Does Not Die,' and King Kitamba, Dvora and the Sons of Phobos are examples.

                              Oh fuck, I might have to shuffle some budget stuff around if this book has Prestantia...

                              EDIT: Only fifteen bucks? I can swing that.
