    Really great review and I loved the Bayou Billy shout outs. The Heather section of the game, despite being tiny, remains the most powerful of Bloodlines for me. Because it’s an intimate portrayal of how a vampire can ruin or save the life of a single mortal. It’s also why I believe Touchstones are a great idea.
