Dementation, famous for the role it played in in the actions of Vampire: The Masquerade's Malkavian clan, has been renewed as a Discipline that causes dementia and insanity, much like its original. It may be taken by any Kindred inflicted with the supernatural disease, Malkavia; this means that it may be taken by members of any clan, covenant, or bloodline, though it is most common among the mad Ventrue.

At the storyteller's discretion, Dementation may also be available in the form of a Malkavian bloodline.

The full details of both Dementation and Malkavia are found in the Ventrue: Lords Over the Damned clanbook.
