The Players Guide to High Clans adds more details on the High Clans of the Kindred during this stage of the Dark Ages: the Brujah, the Cappadocian, the Lasombra, the Toreador, the Tzimisce, and the Ventrue.
From the White Wolf catalog:
- In the Blood Is Power
- The Salubri have fallen. Now we are only six, although we do not stand united. Indeed, kings seldom do. But we are the rulers of the night, by divine ordinance and by the power of Caine's blood. If the Low Clans have forgotten their place, surely it is time we reminded them. The War of Princes will not end with madmen on thrones!
- The Learned and Lordly Dead
- The Players Guide to High Clans contains detailed information on the Brujah, Cappadocians, Lasombra, Toreador, Tzimisce and Ventrue. It includes hints on running all High Clan or mixed chronicles; how High Clan characters develop over time; the mythology, heraldry and history of the clans; and new Merits, Flaws, and Discipline techniques. You'll also find details on High Clan secret societies and on the High Clan Cainites who command the Dark Medieval world.
Prelude: When the Waters StopEdit
A recently embraced Caitiff is batted around the High Clans that wish to claim her.

Chapter One: Once and Future KingsEdit
More information on each of the clans, including their history and what they stand for in the era of the War of Princes. Also includes where each clan calls home, and who they ally themselves with to achieve their goals, and the blasphemous way they treat the sacraments.
