VtES History: White Wolf Announces Sword of Caine

On December 1st, 2006 the now defunct website Gaming Report reported on White Wolf's plans for the next VtES expansion Sword of Caine (after the Third Edition which was released about three months earlier):
White Wolf Publishing has announced that the next expansion for the Vampire: The Eternal Stuggle collectible card game will be Sword of Caine, a booster-only set scheduled for February release.

Sword of Caine holds close to the Third Edition base set. The 60-card expansion focuses on the same Sabbat clans found in Third Edition, but this time with a special eye on the Black Hand. It introduces more Black Hand vampires, including new Seraphs and an Abomination, to V:TES, as well as new toys for Black Hand vampires and new ways to become Black Hand.

The set also includes cards for other vampires to use (Sabbat or otherwise), including new Discipline-based cards, clan cards, sect cards, and general-use cards. Even Joseph Pander, the "founder" of the Pander clan, puts in an appearance.

Sword of Caine contains no reprints. As with Third Edition boosters, Sword of Caine will feature cards with special draft effects to aid deck construction in draft and sealed play.
In early January 2006 it then become known that the actual release date was moved to March 19th, 2007 by White Wolf.
