Chicago By Night (Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition)
by Rory H.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 02/19/2020 20:04:27
Chicago By Night (Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition) 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. ...

The Longest Night

The Longest Night The Longest Night is a collection of works that covers quite a few different gamelines. Each entry within the book is very well written and presents new and interesting material. Typically we keep our reviews short as not to reveal to much, but this time we are going to try to break things down by chapter/author. Wrapped in Winter's Blanket / Alfar: Northern Fair Folk presents us with a short story and setting for Dark Ages Mage. The short story takes place in to time periods, the dark ages period features Alfljotr the Elf Councilor while the modern period features a group of mage that centuries later retraced his Alfljotr's journey. Fans of mage will really like this story. The setting introduces us to Alfheim and the elves that live there. These elves refered to umbrood by mages are a kind of fae, so these might make for interesting crossover campaigns with Changeling. Adlivun The Snowglobe presents us with a setting for Wraith the Oblivion. Andlivun known as the L...

Night Horrors: Spilled Blood
by Nicklaus E.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 02/18/2020 09:37:32
Night Horrors: Spilled Blood There are a number of antagonist options here, being a Night Horrors book, but most of what I really dig into is the clans and bloodlines that one can use to expand upon their own games. There are a number of very specific strange things going on with it that one could form a chronicle around, but don't really fit in many situations (IE - if you're running an ocean-based chronicle, pick this up). Overall, I really enjoyed this much needed drop of blood to rouse me out of the vampire torpor the line's been in without additional content....

Book of Madness: Whispers Without, Chaos Within
by Charles S.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 02/16/2020 13:21:35
Book of Madness: Whispers Without, Chaos Within This book is pretty good, though it shows its age and has largely been superseded by more recent books, like the Revised Book of Madness, Infernalism and Book of the Fallen. Still, it covers a lot of ground. It seems to less be about "madness" and more about "antagonists" as it has a whole chapter on Paradox, listing spirits, clarifying Realms and giving several theories as to how Paradox works from random mages. The Nephandi chapter gave a bit of meat to formerly vague antagonists, and the Marauders chapter inched away from "Mage dedicated to dynamism that appears insane" to "Metaphysically mentally ill mage" though with a subconscious devotion to Dynamism. The Demons and Demon Cults chapter doesn't really have a strong analogue anywhere else, with parts of it overlapping with future books, but still might be one of the better sources for infernalism in Mage. And the final chapter on Umbrood was surprisingly concrete....

100 Fianna Kinfolk
by Jacek W.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 02/16/2020 10:26:45
100 Fianna Kinfolk A solid suplement, very useful among many others. It gives STs a chance to focus on a story rather than NPCs. But it has 3 major flaws: -Many of those kinfolks have been wrongly assigned as male or female at birth. As far as I know it doesn't happen so often. And in these books (the same flaw can be found in other books from this series) you can find at least one character like this. The same is for LGBT Kinfolks. I have nothing against homosexuals, but they are no more than 3% of world's population (according to Google and Wikipedia) so putting at least one in every book is a little too much for me. -It appears that many of those characters were created by copy/paste method. Their bios and sometimes names are similar in different books. -Many of them also have brothers and sisters (sometimes a few of them) who undergone their First Change. If I remember correctly Garou are a dying species so it shouldn't happen so often. Of course, if a ST follow the rules to the core it can be a...

Guide to Coteries [BUNDLE]

Guide to Coteries [BUNDLE] Probably my favourite Secrets of the Masquerade product (and they know that I am very stingy when it comes to 5 ratings). I found the sample coteries interesting, however more interesting and useful to me was the mechanic for creating characters and coterie dynamics.

The Player's Grimoire
by DSC T. G. C. _.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 02/13/2020 11:32:53
The Player's Grimoire The Player's Grimoire is a handy little product. The book mostly consists of fillable pages that allow players to have a quick and ready reference for commonly cast spells that their Mage characters use. The book does contain a few pages that serve as examples on how to use the filliable pages. The tabletop Gaming club liked this product a lot. We found it very helpful in our games. We did find printing the book not as useful as using it digitally.

100 Silent Strider Kinfolk 100 Silent Strider Kinfolk is another solid contribution to the vault. This product is a useful tool when looking for quick npc with a little personality and background. The book gives us a 100 different character names with about a paragraph of background and personality information for each. The Tabletop Gaming Club found the book useful during their weekly game and recommends this book to storytellers who want to flush out their Silent Strider based games with little work.

The Memory of Trees

The Memory of Trees The Memory of Treesia reminds us of the author's previous work [Fettered Ambition](https://www.storytellersvault.com/product/298175/F-
ettered-Ambition). This book has three seperate chapters that each details npcs and gives background and plot hooks for that can be used to develop a campaign around the characters and ideas presented. The Tabletop Gaming Club enjoyed this product, and used many of the ideas in their campaign. We recommend this product to more advanced storytellers looking for quick campaign ideas. Though the lore presented in each chapter is very interesting and makes a good read....

Fettered Ambition

Fettered Ambition The Fettered Ambition is a wonderful product. This book consists of three chapters that each details one NPC. Each NPC is fully detailed with stats, background and moviations. The fourth chapter of the book provides suggestions on how to link the various story elements provided in the previous three chapters into one comprehensive chronicle. The Tabletop Gaming Club had weeks of enjoyment from using this product. We found Black Soul's Mirror to be the most fascinating of the three NPC's and she made a great adversary. We recommend this product to storytellers of Kindred of the East....

The Iscariot Conspiracy

Publisher: White Wolf

The Iscariot Conspiracy The Iscariot Conspiracy dwells deep into what is effectively a cult, based around the myth of Judas. Its a wonderful example of how a master manipulator can weave half-truths into a history. This product gives us background on the conspiracy, details on some of the major npcs involved in the conspiracy including the vampire behind the scence along with npcs seeking to oppose the conspiracy. The tabletop Gaming club used this product in their Victorian campaign and the story hooks provided many hours of fun play time. We recommend this product to storytellers of Vampire and other WoD games. ...

Book of Shadows: the Mage Players Guide
by Charles S.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 02/10/2020 02:03:10
Book of Shadows: the Mage Players Guide This is honestly the second half of the Mage 1e Core book. It finishes almost every thought that that book had, and opens the doors to further elaboration, moving the game towards 2e and softening the black & white feel of the original core. The lease interesting section is the first chapter, which is just a pile of new Abilities, Archetypes, Background and the introduction to Merits and Flaws (which had been circulating in the other lines by this point.) The merits and flaws are particularly fun because some of them seem radically incorrectly priced. I admit, I'm also down on the extra Abilities, because I'm anti-secondary abilities in general with a very, very small number of exceptions. Beyond that, the book really starts delving into how Mage works and how to actually make it work in practice. Chapter 2 just goes faction by faction, interspersing fiction with a discussion of each one's philosophy. It also includes the first hints of sympathetic Technocrats in the line, which ...

Mage Chronicles Volume 2
by Charles S.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 02/08/2020 11:58:00
Mage Chronicles Volume 2 Ascension's Right Hand (4/5) This book fits into the frame of the Vampire supplement Ghouls and the Werewolf supplement Kinfolk. Somehow, in the minds of most, it hasn't become as iconic, and people out in the wild need to constantly be reminded that it exists. I recommend it regularly, and it's a solid book, though largely superseded in ways that the others haven't been. The sections covering mundane allies and companions for mages has been largely subsumed into Gods and Monsters, as have the sections on Familiars, though it has valuable discussions of how the various factions handle these things differently. The discussion of more aware allies sits in the Sorcerer books, which present many more varieties of Numina. Honestly, the main problem is that the book is dated. An update to it would be essential reading for running a Mage game. Halls of the Arcanum (4/5) Who are the biggest nerds in the World of Darkness? The Technocracy? The Order of Hermes?

Halls of the Arcanum

Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 02/08/2020 11:57:05
Halls of the Arcanum Who are the biggest nerds in the World of Darkness? The Technocracy? The Order of Hermes? None of them hold a candle to the Arcanum. Normally, I'm not a huge fan of the 1st person style for game books: though ambiguity leaves room for creativity, often clarity is what's needed. Here, though, it worked quite well. The story is told through the notes and letter, primarily of a new member joining the Arcanum and learning about it, but also from the founders of the society. The section on the Arcanum's secrets is told from the point of view of a Hermetic mage who has been investigating them. Fitting for such an organization, it leaves everyone in the dark. Generally well-written (though there are a few cringe moments, like when it describes people with the G-slur, as WoD often did back in the day) the book is a useful companion to Ascension's Right Hand, showing what happens to occultists who don't end up attached to a Tradition but still have a burning need to know....
