"Lords of the Night" Preview #10: "Strike at the True Flesh"

(c) 2007 by White Wolf Inc.The 10th preview of the VtES expansion "Lords of the Night" is the "Quietus" combat card "Strike at the True Flesh".

My first is impression was, that this sadly continues the "not-so-great-cards" tradition of "Quietus" (o.k. there are a few exceptions to this). Sure, it foils damage prevention like "Rolling with the Punches" or "Flesh of Marble", but this wasn't the problem with the "Quietus" discipline in the past. Some "Quietus" card would have been nice, that didn't allow the opposing vampire to play "Strike: Dodge" or "Strike: Combat Ends". This new card is sub-standard, also since it only applies to non-aggravated damage this vampire deals, so "Baal's Bloody Talons" cannot be used in conjunction with "Strike at the True Flesh".
