 Osric Vladislav

Osrics letter

Back in 2008 when the Keepers of Tradition expansion was originally published, three crypt cards never reached the printers. Black Chantry Productions have chosen to include these cards in their reprint bundles.

One of the cards is Osric Vladislav, a Malkavian mentioned in the Vampire: The Masquerade sourcebook “Gehenna”. In the letter depictioned above he claims to be of the 8th generation, and the grandchilde of Santaleous and the greatgrandchilde of Louhi.

Name: Osric Vladislav
Cardtype: Vampire
Clan: Malkavian
Group: 5
Capacity: 7
Discipline: cel AUS DEM OBF
Camarilla: Osric can burn a location you control to get +1 stealth for the current action.
Artist: Peter Bergting

While not titled nor with a very spectacular special ability, Osric has all the Malkavian clan disciplines at superior level and also basic celerity. His ability may seem weak, but it might very well be what gives you that crucial extra +1 stealth to make the oust. And just imagine what might happen if you borrow Powerbase: Montreal or The Rack?

The artwork is by Peter Bergting, a Swedish artist credited for no less than 72 cards for Vampire: The Eternal Struggle. He is more known for his comic book collaborations with Mike Mignola, Image Comics and Dark Horse, and own graphic novels such as "Portent" and "Domovoi".

Osric Vladislav is found in The Keepers of Tradition reprint bundle 1 together with other Malkavian cards and also cards for clans Brujah, Gangrel and Nosferatu. For a complete list of all cards in the bundle, check out the product page at DriveThruCards.com.

Sheela Na Gig



"You intrude on master's property. I count to 10 - you leave or I feed the earth with your entrails. One. 10."

In the early days of the Middle Ages, the newly founded Tremere line was in grave danger. Hounded from all sides by agents of the Inconnu, even the power of the recently created Circle of Seven did not seem enough to save the line from extinction. Though they were  individually mighty, they simply did not have the hordes of lesser shock troops that they needed to fend off their enemies.

It is rumored to have been the Clan founder himself who thought of a solution. Capturing several other Vampires and mystic creatures, including a Gangrel and a Nosferatu, Tremere and his Circle used their extensive alchemical knowledge to synthesize a race of new Vampires, ones which would serve the Tremere. Deep beneath the Carpathians, the first Gargoyle rose from the steaming ichor of their cauldron. In a mocking parody of the Bible, they commanded it; "Go forth and multiply."



Rules and clarifications:

Rule change: Anarch is a sect
The anarch trait was tightly associated to the Independent sect until now: if an anarch vampire changed sect, it would lose the anarch trait, and some titles are anarch titles.

Anarch is now a sect on its own (alongside Camarilla, Sabbat, Independent and Laibon). For compatibility, all cards that were previously available to Independent (except for Rise of the Nephtali*) will now also be available to Anarch: Banner of Neutrality, Community Justice, Exclusion Principle, Free States Rant, Haqim's Law: Judgment, and Reckless Agitation. Future cards that require an Independent vampire will not be usable by an Anarch vampire (unless if it is explicitly stated that they can use it too).

*The title of liaison provided by Rise of the Nephtali is an Independent title: only Independent vampires can hold that title.

Effects that would affect (or ignore) Independent vampires now affect (or ignore) Independent and Anarch vampires:

Banner of Neutrality
Requires an Independent or Anarch vampire. Only usable when a Camarilla or Sabbat vampire is bleeding you. Reduce the bleed amount by 1.

Community Justice
+1 stealth action. Requires an Independent or Anarch vampire. (D) Burn a vampire who has diablerized a vampire of the same clan as this acting vampire since your last turn.

Exclusion Principle
Successful referendum means each Methuselah gains 1 pool for each ready Independent or Anarch vampire he or she controls.

Free States Rant
Requires an Independent or Anarch vampire. Allocate X points among one or more ready vampires, where X is half this acting vampire's capacity rounded up. No 4 or more points can be allocated to each vampire. Successful referendum means each vampire burns 1 blood for each point assigned. In this referendum, non-priscus titles are worth 1 less vote each, priscus title is worth 1 less ballot, and burning the Edge is worth 1 additional vote.

Haqim's Law: Judgment
Contract. Trifle. Lock a ready Independent or Anarch Assamite you control to put this card on a younger vampire. Every Independent or Anarch Assamite is considered chosen for this contract. Any Independent or Anarch Assamite can enter combat with the attached vampire as a +1 stealth (D) action.

Reckless Agitation
Requires an Independent or Anarch vampire with capacity 5 or more. Allocate 6 points among two or more other Methuselahs. Successful referendum means each Methuselah burns 1 pool for each point assigned. Count Germaine Independent. Red List: Germaine gets +2 bleed against a Methuselah who controls a titled non-Independent, non-Anarch vampire.

Hillanvale
Once each action, Hillanvale can burn 1 blood and discard one card requiring Melpominee to get +1 bleed. She gets -1 intercept against non-Independent non-Anarch vampires.

Jan Pieterzoon ADV
Independent: Jan can burn 3 blood to cancel a Gehenna card as it is played. While Jan is Independent or Anarch and there are any Gehenna cards in play, he gets +3 votes.

Matthew Romans
Sabbat: During your unlock phase, Matthew can burn 1 blood to lock a younger non-Independent, non-Anarch vampire controlled by your prey.

“To discover a saint, you must first look into a tomb. Remember this when you go chasing after Saulot´s childer.” - Boukephos

The Salubri antitribu serve the Sabbat as reluctant warriors, easily distracted by their own internal quests. The rest of the Sabbat considers them anomalies, useful allies in times of war, but intolerable proselytizers when not in combat. To the Sabbat Salubri, this is fine – unlife is a hell of endless torment, ameliorated only by glorious death or victory in battle.
