Did you like Night Road? The expansion is now ready for testing! We need testers!
“Secrets and Shadows” unlocks five new clans, a new Discipline, and two sets of variant powers to explore. Play as five new clans:
• The monstrously deformed information brokers of Clan Nosferatu
• The ruthless schemers of Clan Lasombra
• The tempters of the Ministry, purveyors of vice and enlightenment
• The doomed Ravnos, a nearly-extinct clan now cursed to wander the world
• The necromancer-gangsters of the Giovanni family, members of Clan Hecata
Then unleash brand-new powers:
• Wield stygian shadows with the powers of Oblivion
• Conjure intricate hallucinations with the Ravnos art of Chimerstry
• Master the serpent-shapeshifting Protean powers of The Ministry
Finally, uncover the treasures and horrors of a whole new mission: the fetter of a powerful ghost has just gone up for auction and every vampire faction in Tucson wants it. Will you help the necromancers of Clan Hecata claim the ghost for themselves, or work with the Camarilla to thwart a dangerous alliance of the unbound? Along the way, you’ll have the chance to bid on (or steal) priceless occult artifacts, tangle with the dead and the undead, and either foster a new alliance or dash it to pieces.

There are definitely bugs. Don’t freak out when you encounter one. That’s why you’re beta testing. The game might be literally unplayable.
Things to focus on:
Play the new clans.
Play old clans, but learn new Disciplines.
Old clans, but play through the new Auction subplot.
A question the joinable clan will be Giovanni, Hecata or another of the death clans and anti tribu who joined the new clan of Death?
I think it is a good question for beta testers who know the lore, could know where the game stands to suggest new options. A Giovanni would certainly carry the heritage of the family ties That a Nagaraja, a Real Capadocian or a samedi doesn’t have.
Pls remember to follow the usual beta procedures and guidelines.

Will Chimerstry and Serpentis be wholly new disciplines or amalgams of Presence and Obfuscate/Protean?
Appreciate this answer, going to use this to rant quickly that Chimerstry being a Presence/Obfuscate amalgam, while logical, gives the Ministry Chimerstry for in clan prices, which I am not a fan of. Not a problem with the game, just V5
Auction mission option should disappear once the mission is done
Numerous minor bugs fixed
Oblivion xp/dots/stats page should be working properly
Oblivion “tentacles” should no longer be available at level 1
Per playtester request, it’s now possible to perform the auction mission after talking to only one faction. I added some extra text and code for this possibility, but it should be tested to make sure it flows properly.
