This is a beatifully and well written supplement to Vampire the Masquerade's 5th edition by night series. Ive been comparing this to Chicago by Night 1e and Im telling you that the writers went in a direction that brings the setting to our modern nights; a new prince, a new primogen, old threats and new obstacles (Lasombra) make it a perfect combination for storytellers wanting a vast city as their stage. The Loresheets are uniquely 'Chicagoan' and full spreads on all the Kindred SPC's you could need. What I particularly love is that the book is written with the idea that your coterie will make an impact on this city and that is how a 'by Night' book should be writter; that and the fact that its obvious that the writers actually have been to Chicago or live there. Bravo!

Okay, so I am not a V5 guy. But, Vampire is my thing, the folks at Onyx Path are great, and I have been telling stories about splashing Chicago in blood since the 1990s. So, I needed to at least read this book.

Wow, it really is great. Perhaps I will mine the book for ideas in my games (quite likely, should I have the time), or perhaps I will use it as inspiration for other games. One way or another, there is no way to avoid incorporating some aspect of the book into future games. I was impressed by the mixture of information regarding Chicago the City vs. Chicago the home of lots of Vampires. I thought the storyseeds throughout the book and at the end were just fantastic...there is enough material to keep newbie vampires and their Storyteller busy for years.

Most impressive to me, and the part that I will get the most use out of: the characters. Fantastic on every level! Useful, interesting, they contribute to the setting, the provide even more story ideas, and even the portrait art is amazing.

Based on how good this book is....it is possible that the Blood Gods book just might rope me into playing V5. You hear that, Paradox? Onyx Path is where the soul of this game still lives.

Continuing a tradition of Chicogo By Night campaigns from the 1st edition in the early 1990s, this is a model for how to organise a city campaign as well as being a great sandbox for the Chicago setting. The addition of the Lasombra is welcome, although I'd prefer to see this in a more core rules book, but each Clan gets a good write up. You could literally use just this, along with the core rules, to be able to run campaigns for years - and the various NPCs write ups are full and varied, along with a selection of Loresheets which are becoming an increasingly useable game aid at the table. The art/layout is excellent too and it's both easy on the eye and easy to read.
