Lair of the Hidden is a Time of Judgment book for Vampire: The Masquerade about the Inconnu, the hidden sect of kindred with their own agenda in the Final Nights and their sinister leaders, the Twelve.
From the White Wolf catalog:
- High in the Romanian Mountains...
- Hidden from time and prying mortal eyes, Hunedoara Castle lurks amid the mists of the Carpathians. Home to a cabal of scheming Inconnu, the castle is the site of hideous rites. Who do these terrible rituals empower? Or, worse, who might they protect? Secrets revealed -- Lair of the Hidden is a setting sourcebook and chronicle that examines the plans of a forgotten cult of Inconnu. It covers the cults aims and goals, as well as presenting a terrifying haven of powerful elders for players characters to explore -- should they dare.
