The Inquisition is a supplement for Vampire: The Masquerade that reveals the secrets of the Society of Leopold, who continue the medieval Inquisition against the supernatural denizens of the modern world.

But the Inquisition did not die in those dark ages. Its soldiers still roam the earth and the Damned fear it more than any other group of mortals. Begin your search for those elusive spirits known as the Restless Dead.
