VAMPIRE: ELDER KINDRED NETWORK® ANNOUNCES NEW RULES DIRECTOR

Official V:TES Players' Organization Selects New Rules Director

Paris, France – July 6, 2011 – Vampire: Elder Kindred Network has
selected Pascal Bertrand as its new Rules Director. Pascal began
playing Vampire: The Eternal Struggle eight years ago with the Paris
playgroup and some of its legendary players. Most recently, Pascal
has been serving the player community through his role as the National
Coordinator for France, answering rules questions on a regional level,
and by judging large tournaments including the 172-player Last Chance
Qualifier at the 2010 European Championship. You can find Pascal on
the www.vekn.net website where his rulings will be the one and only
official source for V:TES rulings.

Pascal succeeds the venerable L. Scott Johnson who first began his
V:TES service by collecting official rulings made on mailing lists and
Usenet. Scott went on to become the game's official rules guru for
Wizards of the Coast® and then added Game Designer to his credits when
White Wolf selected him to design 19 expansion sets beginning with
2001's Sabbat War. These days, Scott can be found frequenting the
Boardgamegeek.com website including its V:TES forums.

Congratulations to Pascal, it is good to know we will still have a
rule monger to refer to in the future.

I too want to add my own heartfelt gratitude to LSJ for all the
dedicated years of support and input he has given us and the game over
the years. (and my apologies for all the stupid rulings I probably
asked him about way back when :)

First batch of expected rulings:
* Seeds of Corruption is banned.

* Nosferatu Hosting allows you to "mark" an uncontrolled minion you have seen.
It is also a free trifle that gains you 3 pool when played.

* Patrizia Giovanni is now group "ANY" and non-unique.

* Patrizia may take a cardless Reindoctrination action to make Qadir ul-Ghani
into a Giovanni slave.
