host Lore is more general and vague than Restless Lore, with usually a lot of misinformation. While Restless Lore represents what insiders (Wraiths) know about themselves, Ghost Lore represents what outsiders (ghouls, mortals, hunters, Garou, Fae, Kindred, etc.) might know about the system.
Second, a non-Wraith character that possesses Ghost Lore might be hunted and killed for their knowledge by those wraith groups who desire secrecy. So taking this lore, at any level, can lead to your character's death. However, allowance are usually made for Allies and Fetters, as long as they remain loyal to the Wraith.
