The Encyclopaedia Vampirica is a sourcebook for Vampire: The Masquerade. It serves as a source of information on both famous and notorious Kindred, as well as terms and elements found in the nights of the Kindred. It can also be used as a prop in a Vampire: The Masqueradechronicle.
For centuries, the Kindred have hidden from the wary eyes of mortals. Enigmatic creatures, the Kindred's efforts to uphold the Masquerade have often succeeded even beyond their own desires, and few of the Damned in the modern nights even know those outside their immediate domains. But the long and terrible history of the undead is as broad and sweeping as the myriad Kindred who make it.
