The Path of Sutekh is Mid Approval for Followers of Set and High Approval for other vampires. The more rare Paths of Enlightenment Ecstasy and the Warrior are both High Approval for Followers of Set, and Top Approval for others.
Alternate Paths of Night are Mid Approval for Lasombra, High Approval for others.
Malkavian Time is not used in the Sanctioned Chronicle.
Membership in the Astors requires High Approval.
The Flavoring Blood Bonds Optional Rule is not used in the Sanctioned Chronicle.
Flavor text on page 49 aside, Ventrue cannot gain any special knowledge from tasting blood, except to determine whether or not it is blood allowed by their feeding restriction.

Animalism, Drawing Out the Beast [Ravnos]
The Optional Rules for Drawing Out the Beast are not used in the Sanctioned Chronicle.
Animalism, Quell the Herd [Gangrel]
Quell the Herd works on vampires, but requires a Willpower Trait to be spent (before the mob challenge is made).
Assamite Sorcery [Assamite]
Assamite Sorcery (a version of Thaumaturgy developed by the Assamites) is a High Approval Discipline for any but Amr caste Assamites. Assamite Sorcery uses the same rules and approval levels as Thaumaturgy. The primary path for Assamite Sorcery is Lure of Flames (instead of Path of Blood).
Assamite Sorcery, Awakening of Steel [Assamite]
This path requires High Approval for practitioners of Assamite Sorcery, and is not available to characters practicing other versions of Thaumaturgy.
Dominate, Oberon's Grail [Tremere]
This is an Elder level Discipline, not Master level. Only vampires who possess Oberon's Grail can restore memories lost to Oberon's Grail. In that case, the memories can be restored using the rules outlined under Forgetful Mind.
Koldunic Sorcery [Tzimisce]
The Tzimisce Koldun bloodline practices Thaumaturgy, not actual Koldunic Sorcery. Possession of Koldunic Sorcery (such as the Path of Sorrows) requires Top Approval.
Necromancy, the Maelstrom and Nigrimancy [Giovanni]
These rules are not used in the Sanctioned Chronicle.
Obfuscate, Mental Maze [Followers of Set]
It costs a Willpower Trait to use this Discipline on a supernatural creature or a Partially Awakened mortal. The effects last no longer than one scene (or three turns if the subject is engaged in combat).
Obtenebration, Special Effects and Optional Rules [Lasombra]
These rules are not used in the Sanctioned Chronicle.
Obtenebration, Shroud of Absence [Lasombra]
The Shroud of Absence has no effects on mechanical recording devices, acting identically to Obfuscate in that respect only. A maximum of three Social Traits can be spent to raise the user's Willpower for challenges to the Shroud of Absence. They must be spent when the power is activated, and they last for the duration of the power’s use. Any attacks made out of a Shroud of Absence allow those around it to immediately test against the Shroud, even if they have recently failed to pierce it.
Presence, Temptation and Phobia [Followers of Set]
Effects of these Disciplines are not permanent. Instead, they last until the victim spends as many Willpower Traits as the user spent to activate it. Each time the victim spends Willpower to resist, they stop the effects of the Discipline for ten minutes (or one turn of combat). Temptation and Phobia are High Approval for non-Setites.
Presence, Corruption [Followers of Set]
The Setite must spend at least as many Willpower Traits as the target's Morality rating for this power to be successful. It will then last until the target spends as many Willpower Traits to resist this discipline as the Setite has permanent Social Traits. Each time the victim spends Willpower to resist, they stop the effects of the Discipline for ten minutes (or one turn in combat). Corruption is High Approval for non-Setites.
Protean, Shape of the Beast [Gangrel]
The Sanctioned Chronicle allows the flavor text for different shapes (“Animal Forms” on page 67 of Clanbook Gangrel) for use with Gangrel characters. Non-Gangrel do not have the option of choosing different shapes, but default to the 'wolf' and 'bat' as described in Laws of the Night: Revised. However, the rules mechanics found in the Clanbook for Shape of the Beast are not used in the Sanctioned Chronicle. Use the rules in Laws of the Night and Vampire, Chapter 3 to define the capabilities of your animal forms.
Protean, Animal Swarm [Gangrel]
The animals created by this Discipline can have from one to four Blood Traits each (divided evenly between the creatures). Each creature has Physical Traits equal to three plus the number of Blood Traits it started with, and health levels as follows: Healthy, Bruised, Wounded, Incapacitated, and Dead.
Protean, Mythic Form [Gangrel]
This Discipline and all the mechanics involved are High Approval.
Quietus, Blood Sweat [Assamite]
To use Blood Sweat, the character concentrates for two turns, doing nothing more than walking a step each turn, and then initiates the challenge as his action on the third turn. He expends Mental Traits (up to a maximum of three) and makes a Simple Test for each Trait expended. Each Simple Test won will cause the victim to lose three Blood Traits. Each tie causes a loss of two Blood Traits, and each Test lost will cause the victim to lose only one Blood Trait.
Quietus, Baal’s Bloody Talons [Assamite]
Additional damage caused as a result of winning the Simple Tests is also aggravated. A weapon may hold a maximum number of coatings equal to its normal bonus Traits. Other special enhancements of the weapon (other Quietus blood powers, wards or any other special enhancements) are destroyed as soon as the weapon is coated with Baal's Bloody Talons. As each Blood Trait degrades, the weapon loses one bonus Trait. When reduced to 0 bonus traits the weapon is destroyed as per the description.
Serpentis, Cobra Fangs [Followers of Set]
After activating this discipline, a successful bite by the Setite inflicts an extra level of aggravated damage, plus one additional damage level per Blood Trait expended at that time (up to a maximum of three Blood Traits).
Serpentis, Heart Thief [Followers of Set]
To use this Discipline successfully, the Setite must win a Physical Challenge and then win or tie two Simple Tests to steal a vampire's heart. These may be retested with Brawl.
Setite Sorcery [Followers of Set]
Setite Sorcery (a version of Thaumaturgy developed by the Followers of Set) is a High Approval Discipline for which all characters (even Setites) must pay out of clan Experience Traits costs. Setite Sorcery uses the same rules and approval levels as Thaumaturgy. The primary path of Setite Sorcery is the Path of Corruption instead of the Path of Blood. Followers of Set and Serpents of the Light who know Setite Sorcery may teach it to others as if it were an in-clan Discipline.
Abandon the Fetters, Blood Certámen, Inscription, Mark of Amaranth, and Night of the Red Heart require High Approval. Curse Belated requires High Approval to successfully use.
Bone of Contention [Tremere]
This is an Elder level ritual.
Deny the Intruder [Tremere]
Influence endeavors directed at a chantry protected by this ritual require twice the normal level of Influence, and twice the number of Influence actions expended. Failure to meet these requirements causes the endeavor to fail.
Inscription works on Basic rituals only. A character cannot use this ritual if her effective maximum blood pool has been reduced to five or less.
Rutor’s Hand does not establish line of sight for the purpose of using other powers.
Transubstantiation of Seven [Tremere]
This ritual is only effective if the subject is Tremere.
