I wrote Chapter One: The Ivory Tower and and part of Chapter Seven: Secrets of the Blood for the V20: Rites of the Blood supplement.
In the deepest crimson depths of their being, raw power waits to be brought to the surface. Through their force of will, Kindred can drag this power kicking and screaming into the open to perform miraculous feats and twisted blasphemies. These rituals have been developed to direct and focus this new force, unconstrained by the structure of the known Disciplines. As such, only one word has been seen fit to describe this power that has echoed throughout the ages. Magic.
Rites of the Blood is a collection of rituals practiced among the various Kindred sects and Clans. This isn’t just a collection of powers, but an examination of the sects themselves and how they use their eldritch mystical arts: the Thaumaturgy of the Camarilla Tremere, the bloody rites and patchwork sorcery of the Sabbat, the creepy and alien practices of the Tal’Mahe’Ra, “street” rituals from the Anarch contingent, the sorceries of the Assamites and Setites, the necromancy of the Giovanni, and even some of the mysterious ways of the Inconnu.
This book includes:
- A look at how the various Kindred factions view and utilize blood sorcery in the modern nights.
- A number of new rituals, Sabbat rites, and other powers for the various blood sorceries of the Kindred.
- Revising and updating more classic Vampire: The Masquerade blood sorcery material to V20.
