One of the primary features in Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 is the clans and political factions players will discover. In a brief new video, Paradox Interactive introduces the Thinbloods, the clan that players are part of on joining the game. Thinbloods struggles to survive in a city divided by more well-established, stronger political factions and clans. As a result, Thinbloods have an abysmal survival rate.
Thinbloods are a recent, weaker strain of vampire who face a constant struggle to survive in the World of Darkness. While they are often treated as second-class citizens by full-blood Kindred, Seattle’s leadership has been uncharacteristically tolerant of Thinbloods. As Seattle has only relatively recently come under Camarilla control, it remains a city of opportunity where Thinbloods can navigate their way into the higher circles of vampire society; however, they are rarely shown the same respect or legal standing that full-blood clan members enjoy.
At the start of the game, Thinblood players can choose one of three disciplines:
- Chiropteran - "strong affinity for bats allowing vampires to move through the air and summon swarms". Their signature skills are Glide and Bat Swarm.
- Mentalism - "vampires use telekinesis to manipulate objects and even pull weapons from enemy hands". Their signature skills are Pull and Levitate.
- Nebulation - "allows the vampire to summon and command mist". Their signature skills are Mist Shroud and Envelop.
