Clanbook: Assamite Revised Clanbook Assamite: Revised - WW2359
This is the one true Must-Have for all players of Assamite characters. It brings the Assamites into the modern nights, giving the clan a depth and quality to surpass all previous editions. If you don't have it, GET IT!
Vampire: the Masquerade Revised Vampire: the Masquerade Revised - WW2300
The V:tM core book is of course a necessity if you want to play the game. This Revised edition is an improvement over previous releases in almost every way. The two-page description of the Assamite clan still places emphasis on the warrior caste, but it hints at the changes to come in the revised clanbook.
Children of the Night - WW2023
This book is basically a Who's Who of Vampire: the Masquerade. The characters listed in this book range from Seraphs and Justicars to lowly neonates. Quite a few Assamite characters are found within its pages, among which are Al-Ashrad, and the first appearance of Ur-Shulgi. Read his (its?) write-up, and shiver...
Blood Magic: Secrets of Thaumaturgy Blood Magic: Secrets of Thaumaturgy - WW2106
This book on blood magic gives us an in-depth look at Thaumaturgy and other blood magical practices such as  Assamite Sorcery. The book describes the Sorcerer's paradigm and pragmatical approach to their craft. Also included are many new paths and rituals.
Blood Sacrifice: The Thaumaturgy Companion Blood Sacrifice: The Thaumaturgy Companion - WW2423
Even more info on blood magic is contained in this companion book. One of its chapters is an elaborate description of Dur-An-Ki, an esoteric Middle Eastern form of blood magic practised by many Assamite Sorcerers.
Clan Novel: Assamite Clan Novel: Assamite - WW11107
The eight book in the Clan Novel series, this novel tells the story of Fatima Al-Faqadi and her continued rivalry with her lover, the Lasombra Lucita. The book gives a rather outdated view of the Assamite clan, focussing mainly on the warrior caste.
Libellus Sanguinis 3: Wolves at the Door Libellus Sanguinis 3: Wolves at the Door - WW2823
This three-in-one clanbook for Vampire: the Dark Ages gave us a first view into the true depths of the Assamite clan. Here the three different castes are first introduced, as well as Assamite Sorcery. Highly recommended.
Veil of Night Veil of Night - WW2832
This Dark Ages resource book provides us with a very thorough look at (un)life in the Middle East of the 12th and 13th centuries. If you want to understand the roots of the modern Assamites, this book is a very good place to start.
Dark Ages Clan Novel: Assamite Dark Ages Clan Novel: Assamite - WW11206
The second book in the Dark Ages Clan Novel series, this fiction book tells the story of Amala, a female Assamite warrior, and her struggle with religion in the face of a Cainite Crusade. All three Assamite castes are represented, and it is a very difficult book to put down. Recommended.
