White Wolf Wiki

Libellus Sanguinis: Masters of the State is the first in a series of sourcebooks that detail the clans of Vampire: The Dark Ages. Volume I covers the Tzimisce, Ventrue, and Lasombra.


From the White Wolf catalog:

Born to Rule
These lands are mine, childer; mine for as far as your Cainite eyes can see. Who defended them when the barbarian hordes clamored to the north? Who fought off the howling infidels to the east? Who put down countless insurrections, both of Cainite and kine contrivance? It was I, my sons and daughters. I, who gave myself wholly unto my lands and their people; for their people are my people. My service is both a privilege and a responsibility, childer – as I am a master of the state.
