This is a lexicon of terms from Vampire: The Masquerade.

The terms listed are aren't meant to be representative of every possible term used in the game, merely those that are listed in one or more versions of the game's lexicon.

Core termsEdit

These are terms that appear in the core rulebook (First, Second, Revised or V20 Editions), as well as Guide to the Camarilla, Guide to the Sabbat, Guide to the Anarchs and VTM: Time of Thin Blood (book) Bullet-pdf Bullet-nip. Camarilla-specific terms are marked with a (C), Sabbat-specific terms with an (S), Anarch terms with an (A), and thin-blooded terms with a (TB).

Note that several supplemental books (notably Book of the Damned, VTM: Book of the Kindred Bullet-pdf Bullet-nip, and various fiction anthologies and Jyhad-related works) partially or fully copy the lexicon from VtM Second Edition.

Several of the most common terms listed here (namely, Caine and the clans) aren't listed in the lexicon of the core rulebook, but are listed in the lexicon in the Clan Novel Saga.

Common ParlanceEdit

Old FormEdit

Vulgar ArgotEdit

Other Sabbat termsEdit

These terms appear in the lexicons in the Players Guide to the Sabbat, Caine's Chosen: The Black Hand, or the Clan Novel Saga, but aren't assigned Common/Old/Vulgar status.

Other Tzimisce termsEdit

These terms appear in Clanbook: Tzimisce Revised or in the Clan Novel Saga, but aren't assigned Common/Old/Vulgar status.

AssamitesEdit

These terms appear in Clanbook: Assamite, Blood Sacrifice: The Thaumaturgy Companion, or the Clan Novel Saga, but aren't assigned Common/Old/Vulgar status.

RavnosEdit

These terms appear in the lexicons in Clanbook: Ravnos, Clanbook: Ravnos Revised and Libellus Sanguinis 4: Thieves in the Night.

Other Anarch termsEdit

These slang terms appear in the second appendix of The Anarch Cookbook.

Tal'mahe'RaEdit

The lexicon of the Tal'mahe'Ra (the "True Black Hand") from Dirty Secrets of the Black Hand. Some terms are representative of other Classic World of Darkness games, thanks to the large presence of crossover material in that book.

Kindred of the Ebony KingdomEdit

The lexicon of the Laibon: the VTM: Kindred of the Ebony Kingdom Bullet-pdf Bullet-nip.

AshirraEdit

This is drawn from the lexicon of the Ashirra in A World of Darkness Second Edition, VTDA: Veil of Night Bullet-pdf Bullet-nip, and State of Grace.

Other termsEdit

Dark AgesEdit

This Dark Ages lexicon is drawn from Vampire: The Dark Ages/Dark Ages: Vampire. Dark Ages games other than Vampire are not included here.

Core Dark Ages termsEdit

These are terms that appear in the core rulebooks: Vampire: The Dark Ages Rulebook, Dark Ages: Vampire Rulebook and Vampire Twentieth Anniversary Edition: The Dark Ages. In VtDA, these terms are divided into the two categories of Common Parlance (CP) and Old Form (OF), and the distinction of Vulgar Argot is unused; none of these distinctions are used in either DA:V or V20 Dark Ages.

Other Dark Ages termsEdit

These are terms that appear in the lexicons or glossaries of other Dark Ages books (aside from the Dark Ages adaptations of other game lines).
