Clanbook: Nosferatu Revised is a sourcebook for Vampire: The Masquerade Revised Edition. The book details the hideous, deformed Nosferatu Clan and their information network that keeps them a valuable asset to the other Kindred in spite of their horrific appearance.


From the White Wolf catalog:

Hideous Horrors
Of all the Kindred, the Nosferatu most resemble the Beasts they hide within. But the clan is far more than a motley assembly of twisted freaks. From their first nights to their modern incarnation as informants and spies, the Sewer Rats have as many secrets of their own as they have gathered from other Kindred. Up from the storm drains and tunnels they scuttle, but whether as ally or foe remains to be seen.
And the Creatures They Fear
Clanbook: Nosferatu complements the clan's appearance in the revised edition of Vampire: The Masquerade. All-new information accompanies a reexamination of earlier concepts, allowing players and Storytellers alike to add as much freakish depth to their characters as they like.
Clanbook: Nosferatu includes:
  • The history and society of the Nosferatu clan
  • Information on the clan’s underground kingdoms
  • New Merits, Flaws and Backgrounds
