It is all about energy (and telepathy)
The Bloodlines 2 staff has revealed one other vampiric clan: the Ventrue.
The fourth clan to be revealed for Hardsuit Lab’s sequel to Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines, the Ventrue are “identified all through historical past as kings and kingmakers, the Ventrue are Machiavellian vampires who make the most of their crafty, endurance and iron will to rule,” in response to a launch from the staff at Paradox Interactive.
The Ventrue clan depends on powers of psychological domination to affect the minds of mortals to realize and consolidate socio-political energy all over the world. In accordance with Paradox:
The Ventrue are the guardians of the Masquerade and Princes of uncounted cities. It runs of their blood to be obeyed. Utilizing their signature Self-discipline, Dominate, a Ventrue positive factors the ability to manage the actions and manipulate the reminiscences of others. Fortitude is the Ventrue’s Self-discipline of bodily resilience and permits them to outlast their foes.
Mesmerize – Permits the Ventrue to put one NPC in a short hypnotic trance. The individual so affected is oblivious to the world round them, ignoring sound, contact and even ache.
Command – Considerably extends the Ventrue’s management over the Mesmerized NPC. They’ll now be ordered to maneuver, take away obstacles, and even assault others.
Utilizing Dominate powers shouldn’t be a Masquerade violation.
Take in – Permits the vampire to take a short defensive stance through which they might deflect all assaults they’ll see, therapeutic their wounds for each would-be strike.
Private Armor – Hardens the vampire’s pores and skin right into a stone-like barrier.
Permitting a mortal to witness your Fortitude below assault is a Masquerade Violation.

JR is IGN’s Senior Editor of Options, and might’t wait to write down a political thriller primarily based on his Bloodlines story; he’ll in all probability name it “The Manchurian Candidate (Who Is Additionally A Vampire)”. You may inform him this can be a dangerous concept on Twitter.
