Since I couldn’t find the explicit card texts (other than on card pictures) for the 2010 VtES promo/storyline cards, and the White Wolf webpages on card lists hasn’t been updated in months, I am posting them here:
Claudio Severino [Promo]
Discipline: cel obf AUS DOM THA
Camarilla: Combat cards cost an opposing vampire an additional blood. During your untap phase, burn 1 pool if there are no Gehenna cards in play.
Artist: Ginés Quiñonero
Guide and Mentor [Promo]
Master. Put this card in play. A vampire you control may search your library for a master:archetype and move 1 blood from the bank and that card to himself or herself as a +1 stealth action that costs X pool where X is the number of copies of that card on minions you control (requirements and cost apply as normal).
Artist: Michael Gaydos
Infamous Insurgent [Promo]
Unique master. Put this card on a Red List anarch vampire. This vampire is infernal, Bahari, and gets 2 additional votes. During this vampire’s minion phase, his or her controller may untap a ready anarch he or she controls.
Artist: Erica Danell
Lilith’s Blessing [Promo]
Cost: 1 pool
Master. Put this card in play. As a master phase action, you may tap this card to search your library for a Master:Discipline card and choose a ready non-Bahari vampire you control who has no blood. That vampire gains the Discipline card (if any) and 3 blood and becomes Bahari.
Artist: Matt Smith

Camarilla: Karsh may play a Blood Hunt card from your hand or ash heap as a prince. He gets 3 additional votes in blood hunt referendums. He cannot block infernal vampires.

A majority of the readers (52%) think that the current Trading Card Game (TCG) model is still the best option for the game. While only a rather small minority (15%) think that the Living Card Game model is the way to go.
