Default bleed and strength for both vampires and allies is 1 (allies used to default to 0).

The term Action Card refers to all cards that are played to take an action, including equipment, ally, and retainer cards (returning to the original Jyhad usage).

Retainers no longer automatically heal at the end of combat.

A blood hunt is called automatically after every successful diablerie. It is not optional, and it is not the fifth step of diablerie.
