It is hard to express how good this book is without spoiling it for anyone who reads the review. Everything from the 2nd edition version is there with nobs on. It evokes such a feeling of separateness that you can finally understand the Nosferatu and the trials and tribulations they face both in and outside of Kindred society. The sections are well presented and the artwork has improved drastically from the first version. All in all the other revised Clanbooks will have a difficult time beating this one. Are you ready to face the darkness beneath the city?

As I said, even though it describes the book as "Like New", I would describe it as "Very Good", as there are a few scuff marks

At last, a deeper look 28 Jun. 2000
By Donald E. Marshall - Published on
The new Nosferatu Clanbook takes a new and novel approach by not presenting Nosferatu as being the be-all and end-all clan of Vampires. Taking a slightly more realistic look at the clan, it better illustrates their strengths and weaknesses then many of the books which have preceded it. While I personally find much of the charm in the book is to be found "between the lines", this may grate on some readers who would prefer outright statements of fact rather then having to deduce information by what is said and what is not. The information on Nosferatu living spaces (sewers throughout the ages) and social structure was much needed, though admittedly dry. On the whole, the clanbook is a valuable commodity to a storyteller or role-players, but is likely to be of little interest to those simply looking for new disciplines and methods to make yet another combat monster.

A improvement, but not a classic. 16 May 2000
By Christopher Derick Varn - Published on
It have MUCH more information than the first second edition clanbook, but it lacks the organic feel of the original. The new templates are great and the merit/flaws are really cool; however, some of the multiple perspective writing is a bit befuddling. All in all this is a good supplement for the white wolf line, but it's not perfect.
Good but I'll miss the old one.... 23 May 2000
By Odilon - Published on
First, you have to understand that I liked the old Clanbook Nosferatu so much, I gave a copy to a gaming friend as a gift. Like the original, this is still a very good book. It contains lots of material necessary for working with Nosferatu characters in VAMPIRE THE MASQUERADE along with much useful new material. Not all changes were improvements, however.
One thing that's missing is the way the art and layout of the original book captured the experience of visiting the Nosferatus' subterranean world. This book seems to have all new artwork and it is definitely top of the line but now the visual theme seems to emphasize more the grotesque horror of the Nos themselves rather than their environment. The humor seems to be mostly gone, too, and efforts to replace it just don't measure up. The new fiction, seems to be the same story as in the original but from the victim's point of view- which softens its impact somewhat.
In place of that, there's a lot of text spent on giving the points of view of different political factions within the clan. Unfortunately, parts of this are so long-winded that I got bored and skipped what turned out to be the important part. Editing problems aside, the new details in this book about Nos society- the work on the autarkis Nos, for example- are generally good. Merits and Flaws are included as in the original version- really helpful, I think, in custom tailoring your Nos character's deformities.
Missing is something that I would really expect in an update of this series: better intergration of material about the Sabbat. But here in the Nos opinions of other clans they are still just lumped together as "Sabbat". Also, all the character templates (all or mostly new) seem to be for characters with Humanity rather than Paths of Enlightenment.
That said, a definite improvement here is the new "Famous Nosferatu" section. This selection of important clan members does a much better job of integrating with existing material- here VAMPIRE: THE DARK AGES and the CLAN NOVEL series- than the old one. Also now included are MINDS EYE THEATER stats.
