Clanbook: Ravnos is the sourcebook covering Clan Ravnos for Vampire: The Masquerade Second Edition.


From the White Wolf Catalog:
Gypsies, vagabonds and charlatans, the cunning vampires of Clan Ravnos roam the night as they indulge in the most dangerous of games — lying to the liars, tricking the tricksters, and gleefully receiving curses from the Damned. From Bel Air to Bombay, from Shanghai to Sarajevo, these nomadic vampires wander where their citybound Kindred fear to tread. Now learn of the Ravnos' secret arts, and the centuries of hate that can lie behind a jester's smile.

Chapter One: The RavnosEdit

Chapter Two: The PersecutedEdit

Chapter Three: The LostEdit

Chapter Four: CharactersEdit

Appendix: Ravnos of LegendEdit

Background InformationEdit

  • Like most pre-Revised Edition depictions of the Ravnos, the Clanbook depicts the Ravnos as stereotypes of thieving Gypsies. Later interpretations, especially in the case of Clanbook: Ravnos Revised, excise the gross ethnic stereotyping from the clan.

Memorable QuotesEdit
