"Heirs to the Blood": More Weirdness & other notable things

Here are some more notable things about the latest VtES expansion "Heirs to the Blood" which are worth mentioning:
  • The Rising is a card that originates from the Build-Your-Own-Storyline event "What Lies Beneath", which took place in Melbourne, Australia in March 2009.

  • Toy is the first non-Gargoyle slave.

  • A number of prominent VtES players are depicted on both crypt and library cards:

  • A whole lot of cards requiring disciplines (including those requiring Maleficia and Striga) are drawn from Vampire Dark Ages books, namely the "Dark Ages Companion" (WW2804) and the "Storytellers Companion" (WW20003).

And Toy originates from the official storyline Black Miracles and Lies.

You forgot to include the fact that Toy was first featured in a North American Storyline (Black Miracles and Lies). His artwork hasn't been changed for the official set.

Also note that while Amulet of Temporal Perception shows Robert the item itself was submitted to LSJ by our Hanau Vampire roleplaying playgroup as he wanted to get input for Vampire Characters.

This item (named so by ourselves already) was in our possession and grants the effect of temporis 1 for a scene at the expenditure of 1 Willpower. Not too powerful I would say, just like the item here.

To be honest...I did not recognise Robert on it :)
