This series will review the new cards in the upcoming Fall of London set. Today, we'll go over the new Nosferatu, revealing the remaining Nosferatu from the set. Thanks to BCP for allowing me to share these with you. Oskar Anasov Oskar was previewed by Black Chantry during the initial round of spoilers. Disciplines For an 8-capacity vampire, Oskar has a somewhat subpar discipline spread, having p and c instead of P . As always O will allow Oskar to succeed at whatever actions he wants and I has perhaps the single best short-chain combat. How do p and c fit in then?

Most will probably play what comes int
