Storytellers Handbook to the Sabbat is the second sourcebook to describe the Sabbat, and serves as a companion to the earlier Players Guide to the Sabbat. The Handbook fleshes out background elements of the sect, and introduces two new Sabbat bloodlines. The book advanced the characterization of the Sabbat as thoroughly infested with infernalists, which persisted until Vampire: The Masquerade Revised Edition. This book also introduced the notion of Vicissitude as an infection – a concept that was later revisited in a drastically different form in Dirty Secrets of the Black Hand.


From the White Wolf catalog:

Are You Afraid?
One cannot know the vampires of the Sabbat. They are the darkest of the dark, the vampires other vampires fear. Whether they are rabid packs or silent assassins, all undead quake at the thought of their dark ways.
But there is more to this deadly sect than its followers' atrocities. Its secrets go deep, deep into the night. Its intrigues and feuds are as real tonight as they were centuries ago. Surviving against the Sabbat vampires is almost impossible. Surviving as one of them is even harder.
The Sabbat Storytellers Handbook includes:
  • Complete details on running chronicles and stories involving this sect, as well as five stories involving Sabbat characters;
  • Two new bloodlines and the truth about the vile ghoul families who "serve" the Sabbat; and
  • An in-depth look at the Infernal powers corrupting the sect, including a detailed description of the Path of Evil Revelations.
