    Using the labelled pages in book and not the pdf pages so might be off by one.

    P21, catss-paws should just have one s in cats
    P52, progrenitor should be progenitor
    P60, preditcable should be predictable
    P60, thebloody-handed needs a space between 'the' and 'bloody-'
    P77, insescts should be insects
    P93, psuedo should be pseudo

      Page 77; a dice pool refers to Deception. Should most likely be Subterfuge.

          The same picture appears on pages 97 and 120.

            p. 9: Vampire in Brooklyn, Blade, Angel, Let the Right One In, and Only Lovers Left Alive should be in italics instead of quotation marks (or in bold to conform with the other entries)
            p. 12: "— George R. R. Martin, A Game of Thrones" -- A Game of Thrones should be in italics
            p. 20, 32, and 107: Instances of "World of Darkness" should be Chronicles of Darkness
            p. 47: "...werewolf Kinfolk..." -- should be Wolf-Blooded
            p. 50: "— Dante Alighieri, “Inferno”" -- Inferno should be in italics rather than quotation marks
            p. 52: "Smile. Bow. Look pretty..." -- I think the italicized paragraph is supposed to be in the section below ("Uplifting"). It awkwardly breaks up the Mikhaili backstory, and it doesn't make contextual sense for it to do so.
            p. 53, sidebar: The Mikhaili Banes don't tie to Humanity degradation (though neither do the Jiang Shi's in the core as they aren't "Kindred" so this might be intentional?)
            p. 53, sidebar: "Favored Attributes: Stamina, Manipulation" -- should be "Manipulation or Stamina"
            p. 53, sidebar: "Disciplines: Animalism, Fortitude, Bereschligost" -- Fortitude should be Resilience, the list should be alphabetical, and Bereschligost should be italicized like other unique clan disciplines: "Animalism, Bereschligost, Resilience"
            p. 105, sidebar: "Drawbacks are often, but not always, derangements or physical flaws." -- derangements aren't a thing anymore, so it should perhaps be mental Conditions?
            p. 116: "Mandragora have access to Celerity, Majesty, Resilience, and Vigor as Disciplines." -- The Large Mandrake on the next page has Auspex as well. The Large Mandrake also doesn't have the Skills for rolling Majesty 2 or Auspex 1 (though perhaps by design as it's just a big ole plant...)
            p. 116-117: Are the plants gaining Health/Defense boosts from Resilience/Celerity? It's not quite clear from the stat blocks.

              pg. 47: "He finds common
              ground with others who feel like they exist only at the behest of
              uncaring masters, like Proximi and werewolf Kinfolk"
              Kinfolk aren't a thing in CofD, probably need to change that to Wolf-Blooded (likely replacing 'werewolf Kinfolk' as a whole with that).

                p39, Perdition and Doom's Behest are both missing the 'header' formatting, and are instead written into the description of the preceding Twist

                Throughout, probably a stylistic choice and not an errata: The Ghoul & Dhampir merits are all listed with headers formatted the same way as the Condition and Power ones are (similar to Numina, Dread Powers, and Conditions in ChroD core), which causes mild clarity issues - throughout the rest of Vampire (and most of 2E, I believe) merits follow a more recognizable format.

                  yes please as there was so much confusion about it from the Core Book.

                    Pg.74 last paragraph: "...hunting and feeding, which happens almost night." Should be "nightly"
                    pg.77 " Less Damnedtonight" needs a space.

                      p. 98: "Ghouls who use mortals as Touchstones..." -- Ghouls don't have Touchstones; they use Integrity
                      p. 105, sidebar: "...every member of a ghoul family has one or two Touchstones..." -- Related to the above: if ghoul families have Touchstones, it's not quite clear what the mechanics for this are (i.e., humans have bonuses for breaking points already, what level of Integrity do they attach at, etc.).

                        The dhampir chapter is a bit all over the place on the issue of procreation.

                        On p13, it says the following:
                        "In the oldest and still most common way of creating a dhampir, a mortal and a vampire have sex and a child is conceived. It’s rare, but it can happen, especially when the vampire approaches intercourse with the intention of having a child."

                        Also on p13, it says this:
                        "In the mortal imagination, the mysterious hooded figure who enters a young woman’s bedchamber at night is perhaps the archetypical image of a dhampir’s conception. [...] This myth is misleading, as a vampire’s seduction (or horrific lack thereof), no matter how erotically charged, remains impotent in regard to procreation."

                        Later on p22, it says:
                        "No dhampir is an accident. A vampire must deliberately commit an act of monstrous occult significance to even try to conceive a human child."

                        So, which is it? Can vampires procreate with humans or are they impotent? If they can procreate with humans, then accidents must inevitably happen (particularly if the natural expectation is that they can't get people pregnant because it's so rare), so then p22 is hyperbole at best.


                        The Yozis are right (and you should suffer and obey for all eternity).

                          impernious: Please also include a sentence making it explicit what order blood and Vitae are removed from a ghoul when fed on--first blood? First Vitae? Vamp chooses?

                          Revenants' discipline give them clear flexibility but it is unhelpful to have the issue, um, obfuscated for full vamps.

                            The bottom edge of the cover looks as if a couple of art assets haven't been merged correctly. There's a definite line visible.

                              p. 62: "...accept the Blood Oath..." -- should be blood bond or Vinculum; Blood Oath is a Masquerade term.
