Vampire: The Vendetta - Powers, Abilities, Disciplines

"The strength of a hundred men, the speed of a falling star, dominion over the night and all it's creatures - to see and hear through their senses; even heal grevious wounds."

This page is concerned with the vampiric powers - known as disciplines in both WoD and CoD. Certain powers are more common among certain families, faiths, or factions. A vampire may use any power, even those he or she is not learned or skilled in, by making an exertion (paying two pool, plus one pool for each rank required by the particular power.)

Each power has three ranks, Basic, Advanced, and Master, denoted 1, 2, and 3, respectively. While this list contains all the powers, it doesn't contain all instances of each power. Rather, each power is given four instances of its use.
