Vampire the Masquerade Core Rules (1e)
They stalk in the shadows¸ moving gracefully and unseen among their prey. They are the blood-drinking fiends of whispered legends - Kindred¸ Cainites¸ the Damned. Above all¸ they are vampires. Their eternal struggle¸ waged sicne the nights of Jericho and Babylon¸ plays itself out among the vampires' grand Masquerade is imperiled¸ and the night of Gehenna draws ever closer.
