From the White Wolf catalog:
Prelude: Tricks of the TradeEdit
A brief word on the nature of blood sorcery, the contents of the book, and a lexicon of blood sorcery terms.
Chapter One: The History of Blood MagicEdit
Starting with possible origins with Caine and the First City, this chapter is a scholarly work on the history of Blood Sorcery written by the Malkavian antitribu Demetrius Vance (if that is his true identity). The chapter includes scathing commentary on the text by two unnamed Tremere and an Eastern sorcerer, possibly of Clan Assamite.
Chapter Two: The Rites of BloodEdit
A detailed treatise on the practice of Thaumaturgy in the modern nights, written by an unnamed young Tremere Anarch in Chicago with the intent of disseminating information which would weaken the mystery and fear surrounding the clan. Nearly all the copies were captured, and there is commentary on the text by an elder Tremere named "di Zagreb".
Chapter Three: The Ways of MagicEdit
A collection of Thaumaturgy Paths and Rituals, as well as brief rules for creating one's own Paths.
Chapter Four: Eldritch SorceriesEdit
Appendix: The Faces of MagicEdit
Rules and character templates for creatures created or intimately associated with blood magic, including Blood Brothers, animated corpses, Gargoyles and even two Revenant families: the Ducheski and Rafastio.
"Actually, the 13th descendant of a hanged heretic was the easy part. The hard part was finding a real Gypsy in this town."
