Clanbook: Ventrue is the sourcebook on the Ventrue clan for Vampire: The Masquerade Second Edition.


From the White Wolf Catalog:
Eternity is not merely about power. Power makes up only one part of the Ventrue's world, though it is an extremely important part. The vampires of Clan Ventrue understand that power has value only as a means to an end, not an end itself. Thus they use their vast resources to extend their reach, all the while watching and waiting for the right moment – the right moment to strike. For there are even worse things in this world than vampires, and the Ventrue know they are the only hope.
Clanbook: Ventrue includes:
  • The effect Ventrue have had on the world's history
  • 10 sample characters suitable for players and Storytellers
  • Additional information on how the Ventrue control both mortals and Kindred – and whom they most fear.
