SotM's one shots - Mens Sana


Follow this Coterie’s unique situation as they are struck both with incredible luck and incredible misfortune and find out the source of these bizarre events that have been plaguing their nightly lives for far too long.

This short supplement contains an easy to adapt one shot story to any city to introduce new players to Vampire the Masquerade, alongside premade characters and a descriptive of the situation they are involved in. The scope is small and oppresive to allow for a perfect “behind closed doors” personal horror tale. Most elements were left vague to give room for the storyteller to personalize and adapt the story to their specific needs.

It includes more in depth details of the events as well as named NPCs of all sorts in order to allow storytellers to go and build this story seed into their campaign and show the horrors of a society of bored predators.

Made with 1st edition template and artwork to nod to the original concept and premise of Vampire:the Masquerade, but can be used in any edition.

What kind of story is it. I am looking for some kind of short intro adventure for new players to get them into the system and introduce it. Is ti a murder mystery or what?

Hi! Mens Sana is a one shot mystery for a young coterie of vampires who are friends and have noticed weird things happening around them, more or less targeting them. The players need to investigate the events and what's happening to their contacts, allies and resources to hopefully follow the clues back to their origins. It does require assembly because almost no stats are given, since the set up is meant to be "city-free" (as in it could happen anywhere) but I've added sample NPCs and motivations behind the events.
Any system works for Mens Sana but the ambiance is closer to 1st or 2nd edition VtM, doesn't introduce many supernaturals (as in, no fancy weird bloodline or super hidden artifacts, just regular vampire politics)
I created it with beginner players in mind.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
