    replied to Why the HATRED for Ravnos?
    The first Clanbook Assamite has been retconned as being representative of only the Web of knives, the radical faction of assassins. So, yes, they were all male and fanatics, but that is no more "the clan as a whole" but a subfaction. Is the same strategy the have followed with the first Ravnos clanbook, but with more succes, I think. It helps that in the Libellus Sanguinis and the Dark ages setting, the Banu Haquim had a different perspective, there were introduced the casts and the "judge" archetype of the clan.

    EDIT: I have just read this section of the first...

    Well, probably the ethical of the Path of blood does not fit very well with the actual definition of enforcer. But what matters is Banu Haquim use to have the tradition of being the "enforcers" in kindred terms and long ago legends.

    EDIT: And may be more interesting, the Justicars were in the middle ages the persons in charge of enforce the law. In some countries, like mine, it is still a title or a charge given to some judges.

    I do not agree about Chimestry being a mediocre discipline, to me is one of the most powerfull in hands of a creative player. But it is true that Chimestry depends on willpower, and how it is won and regained depends a lot of the storyteller style. I use to give my players the chance to replenish their willpower at the end of every narrative arc, so every 5 or 6 sessions they could recover it. That gave the Ravnos player the opportunity to spend Chimestry once or twice per session of play. However, the power of Chismestry is that one player could make the same effects of Obfuscate, Dominate, Presence...

    In the background, Ravnos use to be problematic for the authorities wherever they are. They are not only nomads or pariahs, as could be a gang of Gangrels or a pack of Caittifs, they have the tradition and the culture to steal, to be troublemakers, to break rules of every domain. They even don´t have the support of the anarchs or other "low clans" because they do not cause this problems for political reasons or looking for profit, they have near zero political influence in USA and western Europe, and they don´t want this influence.

    Off game, they were very bad designed,...

    Another vote for the Malkavians as a clan, the seers of the game probably have the "truth", but there is no understandable revelation. And the templars, of course.
