The Players Guide to the Sabbat is the first sourcebook to fully describe the Sabbat. Although the Sabbat is a major sect of vampires, they had previously been lightly detailed and were implicitly restricted to the ranks of Storyteller characters. Many prominent Sabbat-related elements of the setting, such as the antitribu and the Paths of Enlightenment, were introduced for the first time in this book. Additionally, the Lasombra and Tzimisce were described for the first time in this book; previously, nothing was known of those clans other than their names, as mentioned briefly in the first edition of the Vampire: The Masquerade Rulebook.


From the White Wolf catalog:

By Any Means Necessary
The Sabbat: a sect of diabolists and murderers whose sole purpose seems to be wanton destruction. These Night Fiends reject the ancient laws of the undead and revel in the fear and hatred they inspire, considering them tributes to their strength and courage.
The Prince of Freedom is Death
But there is a method to their madness. They are the true saviors of the undead, something only they can or will see. The Sabbat has gathered power for centuries, allying with the darkest powers of the supernatural, growing and expanding with only one purpose — the utter destruction of the Antediluvians.
The Players Guide to the Sabbat includes:
  • The history and secrets of the Sabbat, including it's myths and traditions
  • Rules on creating Sabbat characters for use by players or Storytellers
  • New clans, bloodlines, Disciplines, Abilities, rituals and much, much more
