Nightmare is the Kindred Discipline of striking fear and dread into the hearts of others. Practitioners learn to manifest their inhumanity in their appearance or by letting unfortunate onlookers peer deep into their Damned souls. The Discipline can have a variety of effects, from shocking even the most jaded individual to literally frightening a victim to death. Nightmare is the signature Discipline of clan Nosferatu.

Powers Edit

As of Vampire the Requiem Second Edition, powers of Nightmare were refined and reorganized. (Source:

  • Dread Presence: The vampire exudes a deeply unsettling aura that reaches out to all those within his presence.
  • Face of the Beast: With a glance, one of the victim’s fears is magnified to the point of pure terror. The victim gains the Frightened Condition.
  • The Grand Delusion: The victim’s mind is twisted and perverted in ways invisible to the naked eye, instilling beliefs into him as false as they are frightening. The victim gains the Delusional Condition.
  • Waking Nightmare: The vampire inflicts upon his victim or victims a miserable hallucination, a touch of the kind all vampires suffer in torpor.
  • Mortal Terror: The vampire imbues his Nightmares with the sort of terror that haunts all vampires through daysleep and torpor.
