- May You Gain the Notice of Those in High Places
- For centuries the exotic realm of Asia has defied the Kindred's incursions. Those few Children of Caine dwelling in Asia whisper of the monstrous Cathayans -- the shadowy vampires native to the East. For too long, the Cathayans have lain like sleeping dragons, allowing the Kindred a façade of omnipotence. Now, the new Age is at hand; Yin-daggers tremble in the talons of the Resplendent Cranes, and the Devil-Tigers howl for souls in the dark.
- May You Live in Interesting Times
- Kindred of the East is a giant hardcover sourcebook describing the unique and deadly vampires of the East. This mammoth volume includes new character creation rules, new powers, descriptions of the Eastern spirit worlds (plus rules for travelling there), and two chapters full of setting and cultural information.
