Clanbook: Assamite Revised is a sourcebook for Vampire: The Masquerade Revised Edition showcasing clan Assamite. It details both their history and the state of the clan in the modern nights, after they have broken the Tremere Curse.

Summary

From the White Wolf catalog:

A Cult of Killers...
The clans of Caine have only recently seen the true face of Clan Assamite. Once assumed to be mere assassins, the Assamites have thrown off the Camarilla's debilitating curse and their mantle of silence. A diverse clan of noble warriors, learned sorcerers and murderous diablerists, the Assamites have stepped forth to claim their legacy in the Final Nights.
Clanbook: Assamite Includes:
  • The classes and castes of the enigmatic Assassins, exploring all levels of their clan structure
  • A look at the wide-reaching influence of the Assamites, from the borders of the Middle Kingdom to the shifting tides of New World politics
  • New Assamite Sorcery, high-level Discipline powers and the fruition of the Assamite's plans in the modern nights

Unpublished Material

Some text written by Clayton Oliver was not included in the published sourcebook, and was released several years later as a kind of easter egg: Unpublished text from Clanbook: Assamite Revised.

Background Information

This book, along with the original Clanbook: Assamite and Blood Magic: Secrets of Thaumaturgy, dates the Treaty of Tyre to 1496. Other sources either date it to 1493, the same year as the Convention of Thorns, or combine it with the Convention itself, either of which is incompatible with the version of events here.
