Clanbook: Tzimisce is the sourcebook on the Tzimisce clan for Vampire: The Masquerade Second Edition.


From the White Wolf catalog:

Called "fiends" even by other vampires, the Tzimisce are the masterminds behind the dread Sabbat; their atrocities have given rise to the mortals' legends of vampires stalking human prey in the night. In rejecting their humanity, the Tzimisce hope to attain something far more wondrous. Should they achieve their aim, Kindred and kine alike will have reason to fear.
Clanbook: Tzimisce includes:
  • The history of the clan and its role in the formation of the Sabbat
  • Details on the clan's mastery of Vicissitude, sorcery and the Blood Bond
  • A nightmarish array of grotesquely transformed servitors.


Chapter One: Into the House of FiendsEdit

The Fiend Alexei inducts his childe Julia into the ways of the clan.

Chapter Two: Fiends Among UsEdit

A history of the Tzimisce, from the Anarch Revolt to the modern nights.

Chapter Three: To Sup with FiendsEdit

Perspectives on the Tzimisce Embrace, the clan's factions, the clan's views of outsiders, the blood bond, and the various fleshcrafted ghouls found in service to the Fiends, as well as new Merits and Flaws and Vicissitude powers.

Chapter Four: A Cavalcade of FiendsEdit

A selection of Tzimisce character templates.

Appendix: Fiends Most InfamousEdit

Profiles on several notable and notorious Tzimisce.

Background InformationEdit

The back cover illustration depicts a Tzimisce whose face is fleshcrafted to resemble pierced female genitalia; this fact caused the Clanbook to be distributed in a brown paper wrapper once it was noticed by retailers.
