Vampire text is really like a character sheet. I can't think of a clever way to split all the characteristics in two parts only. Title has nothing to do with strength bonus. Strength bonus has nothing to do with bleed bonus. Etc.
So there won't be any clever rule, and all rules will be arbitrary. Perhaps the best way is too keep all the text together.


The thing is that by using bold text, you already are splitting the cardtext.

Let's look at this vampire :


If we follow the rules you linked earlier (www.vekn.net/output-changes#R0213), his new cardtext would already be :

Independent. 2 votes (titled). Blood cursed. Redlist : Jamal gets +1 strength in combat with allies and Camarilla vampires. +1 bleed.


With Ke's layout we can have the exact same thing but instead of having bold text, those information are written in a black box (with the addition of clan at the beginning).

I know it's already the case, and it's arbitrary. The advantage of using bold is that you can put the two texts aside, which reduces the space wasted by a new line.

For reference here is Jamal solely using the new text without extraction:



All the cards use the new text.

At least the sect should be in the same block as the clan, since those are the two traits that all vampires have.
