Clanbook: Nosferatu is a supplement for Vampire: the Masquerade, detailing the hideous, deformed Nosferatu Clan, and their information network that keeps them a valuable asset to the other kindred in spite of their horrific appearance.


From the White Wolf catalog:

Chapter One: Abandon All HopeEdit

This chapter tells the tale of a whiny artsy type being vindictively embraced by an existing Nosferatu kindred.

Chapter Two: Back StoryEdit

This chapter starts with an excerpt from Claudius Maximus, of clan Tremere, on the Nosferatu clan.  The manuscript is stated to have never been finished, ostensibly due to the final death of Claudius (presumably by a Nosferatu).  The rest of the chapter has some history of the Nosferatu, and a section about the Nictuku.

Chapter Three: SubcultureEdit

This chapter discusses the the Nosferatu clan curse, a memo that gives an insight into the Nosferatu approach to urban renewal, discussion on the types of mortals that are selected for the embrace, merits and flaws, Nosferatu stereotypes of the other clans and supernatural creatures, clan hierarchy, feeding practices, discussion on their spy network, urban decay, Nosferatu ghouls, R&R, scavenger hunts, Nosferatu art, the underground, details on the different sections of Nosferatu warrens, a short story entitled "Night of the Toxic Vampires", and a level 6 power for the Animalism discipline.

Chapter Four: LowlivesEdit

Different character templates are shown in this chapter, as well as an appendix on the who's who of clan Nosferatu: Sergei Voshkov, Prudence Stone, Pusfinger, and the "Bat Child".  There is also a character sheet listed in the back.

Background InformationEdit

Memorable QuotesEdit


  • Sergei Voshkov - Servant of Baba Yaga.
  • Prudence Stone - A seer with "Second Sight" that was embraced after being hanged for "witchcraft".
  • Pusfinger - A typical neonate until he rescued a pompous Toreador (Empedocles) from lupines and thus earned a lifeboon. Rather than claiming one mighty or great boon, Pusfinger drew out his repayment bit by bit to humiliate Empedocles (and unintentionally created grunge fashion by doing so).
  • Bat Child - An unknown Nosferatu, seemingly responsible for all of the "bat child" stories and photographs in trashy tabloids.  The Camarilla wants it captured at all costs over fears of jeopardizing the Masquerade.
