Cainites The Basics: The Race of Cain functions just as Kindred do on the purely physical level.

The following are changed. Predators Taint: Cainites do not suffer the Predators Taint. Blood Potency: The Vampires blood potency varies depending on the vampires age and how many generations he is removed from Cain. Only generations 15-4 are quantifiable. Trait Maximums, Vitae Maximums, and Vitae expenditures are unchanged. Feeding requirements are variable. Vampires begin at a Blood Potency depending on their generation, and can increase to a maximum Blood Potency dependent on generation. Here is the chart. Generation: 4 Beginning Blood Potency: 7 After 25 years active: 8 After 50 years active: 9 After 100 years active: 10 Generation: 5 Beginning Blood Potency: 6 After 25 years active: 7 After 50 years active: 8 After 100 years active: 9 After 500 years active: 10 Generation: 6 Beginning Blood Potency: 5 After 25 years active: 6 After 50 years active: 7 After 100 years active: 8 After 500 years active: 9 After 1,000 years active: 10 Minimum Humanity to Feed on Animals Humans 8 3 9 4 10 4 5 Minimum Humanity to Feed on Animals Humans 7 0 8 4 9 4 10 5 5 Minimum Humanity to Feed on Animals Humans 7 0 8 0 9 4 10 4 5 6

Torpor works in the reverse of age category. Torpor can put a vampire below blood potency minimums for their generation at the rate of 1,000 years per point of blood potency. Vampires below 13nth generation can go no lower than blood potency one. 13nth generation vampires and younger fall to their starting point.

Diablerie (which otherwise is as explained in VtR) lowers the diablerists generation at the following rate. The vampires blood potency goes up by one, if the consumed vampire had a blood potency higher than the diablerits, or to the minimum for the new generation. The diablerist can have problems. The consumed vampire rolls Presence+Blood Potency opposed by the diablerists Resolve+Blood Potency. If the consumed vampire gains more successes than the diablerist, then the diablerist gains a form of Sanguinary Animism involving the victim that has a chance of manifesting each time the vampire awakens. If the victim gets five or more successes than the diablerist and the diablerist gets no successes, then the victim is essentially in control of the attacker, but suffers Sanguinary Animism from the attacker with the same stipulations. # of Generations raised by diablerie, only applies if the victim is of lower generation than the attacker. Difference between 1 and 3: 1 Difference between 4 and 6: 2 Difference between 7 and 9: 3 Difference between 10 and 12 (ridiculously, theoretically possible): 4.

The weapon then need only make contact for a splinter of it to come loose in the target and begin working its way to the heart. At this point, each round after penetration the stake splinter deals 1 level of Lethal damage per minute as it makes its way to the targets heart. It does this once the initial attack damage plus the damage per round equal 5 (+1 per point of active Resilience). Mortals at this point, must roll Stamina+Resolve each round or take a point of Aggravated damage until death. Vampires react as if the stake were driven directly into their heart. This

process can be averted by a surgeon going after the tip, which is an opposed Intelligence+Medicine vrs Thaumaturgy roll.

Mortals at this point, must roll Stamina+Resolve each round or take a point of Aggravated damage until death. Vampires react as if the stake were driven directly into their heart. This process can be averted by a surgeon going after the tip, which is an opposed Intelligence+Medicine vrs Thaumaturgy roll. This doubles the amount of Lethal damage done (if it doesnt happen in a hospital setting) in the turn, but once (if) the surgeon wins the splinter is retrieved preventing further harm. Each shaft is good for one successful attack. Cost: 2 additional Vitae. Action: Extended, each roll requires 3 hours. Roll Results

Dramatic Failure: The shaft will not function, unless the wielder gets a Dramatic Failure on an attack roll, and therefore gets a splinter Failure: No result. Success: Things go as planned.

Success: Things go as planned. Exceptional Success: Additional successes are their own reward. Voice of Command Description: The vampire can attempt to order about any spirit that she can see and can communicate with. The spirit cannot be made to violate its ban, or do anything directly against its nature (spirits of healing are not likely to make good assassins, for example). The order must be a single task (though their can be multiple steps), and it must be something that can be completed by the next sunset. Action: Extended, each roll takes 1 Instant action, Spirits can resist Reflexively with Resistance. Roll Results Dramatic Failure: The spirit cannot be affected by this ability for one lunar cycle, and is apt to be angry. Failure: No result, the spirit is probably pissed. Success: Things go as planned. Exceptional Success: The spirit will do anything that does not violate its ban.

Roll Results Dramatic Failure: The ritual is believed to work, but does not. Failure: No result. Success: Things go as planned. Exceptional Success: The newly minted vampire gains +1 Vitae. Entrap Ephemera Description: This ritual creates a Fetish, as discussed in W:tF. The fetish must be activated with a Manipulation+Occult roll, which does not benefit from the 10 and again rule. It always costs 1 Willpower and 1 Vitae to activate. The fetish lasts until there are no successes on an activation roll. Action: Extended, each roll costs 1 minute. Resisted, resistance is Reflexive. Roll Results Dramatic Failure: The spirit is free to do what it wants to, this is likely to be nothing good. Failure: No result. Success: Headway is made. Exceptional Success: The 10 and again roll does apply toward activation. Suggested Modifiers Modifier Situation See fetish creation rules in W:tF

Merging of Souls Description: The vampire summons a spirit to join with one of his ghouls making a Claimed in the process. The result is still a blood bound creature, and one that is radically unpleasant and subject to strange drives, but likely more powerful than what existed originally. This requires some negotiation with the spirit. Action: Extended, 1 hour per roll. Roll Results Dramatic Failure: The creature is free willed, and apt to be a hostile blood addict. Failure: No result. Success: Things go as planned. Exceptional Success: The creature is unusually stable and devoted. Roots of Vitality Description: The subject must be buried by the Koldun. For every success on the activation roll, 2 Bashing, 1 Lethal, or .5 Aggravated levels of damage are healed.

The creatures statistics are as follows: Power: 2, Finesse: Thaumaturgy, Resistance: 3 Size: 2, Speed: Power+Finesse+5. The critter has +2 Defense over what it should have due to small size and jerky movements. It can jump the same distance as a man sized creature, and it will always try and strike the heart.

Exceptional Success: Additional successes are their own reward. Stone Slumber Description: The vampire must cover herself in the blood of a 12 hour old corpse, and then stand stock still facing east.
