Scenes of the Embrace isn't a title that I find particularly useful at all. The product sets out an anthology of fourteen scenes (two per sin), which has an Embrace as the centre piece. Whilst it mit work for some groups, I simply can't see any character in either of my two gaming groups following along with some of the actions.
The sevens could be best used as story hooks or as drivers for NPCs, but I don't see any worth from a PC angle.
Also, there is a Covenant Reaction to each type of Embrace that is a simple two-line statement about how the Covenant as a whole (that right - the homogenous mass effect again) would react to the actions in the scene. They are deplorably shallow and almost completely useless; in fact they feel as though they have been hastily tacked on. Are the Carthian Movement honestly that dull? If the Covenant can be summed up by the reactions in most of the scenes, I don't see why anyone would play them. This homogenization of the Covenants makes no real sense and very few of the suggested reactions easily translate into engaging role-playing.
To be honest, I'd be investing in a copy of 'The Last Supper' instead which offers far richer, and well-thought-out material covering scenes for the Embrace.
