The Endless Ages Anthology
With the revival of the roleplaying game Vampire in its 20th-anniversary version, novels and short story anthologies based on this game setting get published again. The Endless Ages Anthology is a collection of short stories, which, in contrast to the anthology volume Dark Ages: The Cainite Conspiracies, is set in modern times. The different short stories illuminate different facets of the vampires' unlife and offer exciting and amusing insights into their world. As you would expect from such a volume, the stories cover a wide range of topics, but basically, most of the stories are well written and entertaining. It is striking how often the conflicts between vampires are the central topic and that the focus is on the Camarilla. As expect, the different clans and their features stand in the foreground. But also bloodlines like the Gargoyle have their appearance.
If you plan to start with the roleplaying game Vampire again and like to take in a little flair and atmosphere, The Endless Ages is a good choice to get back into the world of Vampire.
