The Revised Edition splatbook for Clan Assamite, or the "Children of Haqim" as they call themselves. It details both their history and the state of the clan in the modern nights, after they have broken the Tremere Curse.

SummaryEdit

From the White Wolf catalog:

A Cult of Killers...
The clans of Caine have only recently seen the true face of Clan Assamite. Once assumed to be mere assassins, the Assamites have thrown off the Camarilla's debilitating curse and their mantle of silence. A diverse clan of noble warriors, learned sorcerers and murderous diablerists, the Assamites have stepped forth to claim their legacy in the Final Nights.
Clanbook: Assamite Includes:
  • The classes and castes of the enigmatic Assassins, exploring all levels of their clan structure
  • A look at the wide-reaching influence of the Assamites, from the borders of the Middle Kingdom to the shifting tides of New World politics
  • New Assamite Sorcery, high-level Discipline powers and the fruition of the Assamite's plans in the modern nights

Introduction: From the Treaty of TyreEdit

An brief excerpt from the Treaty of Tyre, signed by the Assamites and the Camarilla in 1496.

Chapter One: How Quickly We ForgotEdit

The history of the clan, including excerpts from the "Chronicle of the Heartsblood" chapter of the Book of the Final Nights, and the Parables of Blood.

Chapter Two: Prayers to Broken StoneEdit

The structure and organisation of the clan, including the three Castes (Warrior, Sorcerer and Vizier), as well as the Disciplines and blood magic employed by Assamites, including high-level Quietus powers.

Chapter Three: Sons and Daughters of HaqimEdit

Character templates and notable Assamites.

Background InformationEdit

This book, along with the original VTM: Clanbook: Assamite Bullet-pdf and VTM: Blood Magic: Secrets of Thaumaturgy Bullet-pdf Bullet-nip, dates the Treaty of Tyre to 1496. Other sources either date it to 1493, the same year as the Convention of Thorns, or combine it with the Convention itself, either of which is incompatible with the version of events here.
