Three crypt cards were left out from the original printing of Keepers of Tradition back in 2008. Black Chantry Productions have chosen to include these cards in their reprint bundles.
According to the 2003 Vampire: The Masquerade sourcebook “Succubus Club: Dead Man´s Party”, Hiram “Hide” DeVries is the current proprietor of the Succubus Club. It is no longer a permanent establishment found in Chicago, but instead a mobile nightclub, moving around between cities in North America.
“The new top dog of the SC is this Lick by name of Hiram DeVries. He´s one of these up-and-coming Blue Bloods who got the bite back in the early ´90s, when the Ventrue gobbled up all those start-up companies and were desperate for middle managers to run them. Hide – so they call him – was smart enough to see the writing on the wall and started for a new playground before the Internet bubble popped.” … “Hide´s the kind of guy who can talk both your ears off, just bury you in a huge pile of words until you give him what he wants just to get him to shove off. He´s also what you call a good networker, so he can get the club just about anything it needs with a phone call or two.”
Name: Hiram “Hide” DeVries
Discipline: cel pre
Camarilla: While Hiram is ready, actions to burn a location you control cost 1 additional blood.
Artist: Mattias Tapia
While not exactly a powerhouse, Hiram is a 3-capacity vampire with a corner-case ability that late game might deter others from attacking your locations. Sadly, his Succubus Club is one of the only four cards in the original 437 card Jyhad set that is banned from tournament play.
Let´s see how long it takes before a deck with Hiram is entered into the Tournament Winning Deck Archive. The challenge is on!
The artist Matias Tapia is an acclaimed illustrator and concept artist that has done work for Blizzard, Wizards of the Coast, Fantasy Flight and numerous others.
Hiram “Hide” DeVries is found in The Keepers of Tradition reprint bundle 2 together with other Ventrue cards and also cards for Toreador, Tremere and Caitiff. For a complete list of all cards in the bundle, check out the product page at DriveThruCards.com.
