Bloody Hearts: Diablerie Britain is a supplement for Vampire: The Masquerade about the dangers that await those who wish to commit the forbidden art of diablerie in Great Britain, as well as the secrets of an ancient demon that sleeps.


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 Diablerist. None can take so completely without paying the price. None can first feel absolute power without first knowing absolute horror.

go to church but never pray

To thy wish, but as a fear.
