SummaryEdit

From the White Wolf catalog:

Absolute Power Can Corrupt
The thirst for the most powerful blood can drive any vampire mad with desire. Its taste, bouquet, smell, and texture are like nothing else the Kindred can experience. The feeling of it as it flows past undead lips is exquisite beyond belief. And the power it provides...
Even Those Already Corrupted
But its consumption destroys the predator as surely as the prey. The very soul of the victim is taken in the act and, as the victim dies, so does the Diabolist. None can take so completely without paying the price. None can first feel absolute power without first knowing absolute horror.

Memorable QuotesEdit

Gigantic Daughter of the West
We drink to thee across the flood...
For art thou not of British blood?
Lord Alfred Tennyson, "Hands All Round"

Dreams of war, dreams of liars
Dreams of dragon's fire
And of things that will bite.
Metallica, "Enter Sandman"

At last! The clear trail of the man. After it, silent but it tracks his guilt to light. He's wounded – go for the faun, my hounds, the splash of the blood, hunt him, rake him down.
Aeschylus, The Eumenides

I'm the evil in the Bible,
go to church but never pray
I'm a sister with a habit,
a preacher never saved.
- Lynch Mob , "No Good"

Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
- Lord Acton , Life and Letters of Mandell Creighton

Nor to slumber, nor to die,
Shall be in thy destiny;
Though thy death shall still seem near
To thy wish, but as a fear.

When the lamb opened the seventh seal, silence covered the sky.
- Enigma, "A.D. MCMXC"
