Enlightened Grimoire

Enlightened Grimoire A fantastic book containing many (but not all) official rotes from 1st - 3rd edition. It gets 4 stars from me because while the artwork and the job on the book is absolutely amazing, it leaves out the Masters of the Art book that is 3rd edition. While the Masters of the Art book focuses on Sphere scores of 6+, the translation for Sphere's at 6+ would've made a fantastic 'final chapter' or 'last bit of information'. Adding in the 'Masters of the Art' information would have gained 5 stars from me. Edit: (Seems I can't directly reply to your statement so will just edit this) There were a few rotes that I had not seen from some of the miscellanious books. I also noticed that many rotes simply noted a page reference and no description what so ever of what the rote did, while other rotes gave full descriptions as well as references for what book they were from. I'll make a list in my spare time and (probably this weekend) update thi...

Mage: The Ascension 20th Anniversary Edition

Mage: The Ascension 20th Anniversary Edition My favorite White Wolf game of all time! The 20th Anniversary is a FANTASTIC combination of so many of the amazing qualities of the game. They include the core game along with rules for Technocratic mages as well as other 'independents'. They've taken the time to refine the Sphere's and a way to keep track of Rotes and even explain ways to make more common spells / rotes more refined so players can have a 'specialty' in the game. Artwork is as always beautifully drawn. If you were a fan of Mage: The Ascension in the 90's and early 2000's, you will absolutely love the 20th Anniversary Edition....

Masters of the Art

Masters of the Art Fantastic write-up for M:tA by White Wolf. Focused around Arete 6+ and Sphere's at 6+ and how Mages would theoretically work at that level! A definite buy if you're looking for higher end power for that game system! Keep in mind it's 3rd edition, and as of currently to my knowledge there is no 20th Anniversary translation. With that in mind, it's -still- a fantastic buy! The pdf has all the pages pristine, crisp, and easy to read, and is definitely worth the cost of getting....

England Will Burn
by Venka M. Z.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 04/28/2020 13:32:44
England Will Burn With all the various background information on the British Isles available in several editions and supplementary books, there is a lot of lore about Cainite history here. To me as somebody new to running a WoD campaign, this is a wealth of stories (which I enjoy), but sadly too intangible to be of much help in actually running a game. Cities like London may (in official reckoning) teem with Vampires, but to keep their complex web of of relations straight overwhelms me. Also, as this book argues, the first Dark Ages edition suggests much lower vampire population counts. Therefore, the cities presented are less densely populated as well. In return, all Cainite inhabitants are fully developed, including full stats and relationship diagrams. Add to this beautifully researched city maps, and a treatise of the background and history that is somehow a few levels more local, more hands-on and more directly related to the Vampires the characters will actually meet, and this book becomes the...

Monstros da Mitologia Particularmente, gostei do conteúdo mostrado, embora acho que ele poderia ter sido melhor trabalhado nos sistemas já existentes. Anjos e Demônios são abordados no cenário de Demônio: A Queda e mostrar um lado mais avançado em escala de poder, usando este cenário como base seria excelente. Acredito que as qualidades também estão bastante poderosas, poderiam ser um pouco mais fracas. No geral, gostei. Tem qualidade. É um conteúdo bem bacana e com certeza usarei em minha mesa. Vale o preço pago! ...

Changeling: The Dreaming 20th Anniversary Edition

Changeling: The Dreaming 20th Anniversary Edition **A return to the most colorful World of Darkness - a Mephisto review** # **Changeling: The Dreaming 20th Anniversary Edition** The fifth of the original systems of the ***World of Darkness*** presented a new kind of supernatural beings with an unique background: the changelings. On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the system, an anniversary edition was also published for **Changeling: The Dreaming**, which with about 500 pages offers a very comprehensive introduction to the most colorful ***World of Darkness***. **Changeling** revolves around the world of changelings - fairy creatures fused with human bodies. The fairies are originally creatures of dreams and were long present in their original form in the world of mortals until several disasters closed the connection to Arcadia, the realm of the fairies. Many of the fairies, especially the noble Sidhe, fled from the suddenly hostile world back to their own realm. While the nobles succeeded in this escape in many cases...

Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition I've played three sessions of this game as Storyteller. I will list complaints given to me in general by new players at my table. -The book is not well laid out for easy character creation, its rather scattered. (Flaws/Merits grouped together by concept rather than just by all flaws/ all merits, a lack of 'flow' between chapters that follows the steps in character creation.) -The rate of XP gain and the XP costs are absolutely glacial. At suggested rates of XP; it would take a tremendous amount of time to level up. My group is concerned that as fledgelings having survived several fights and strenuous encounters, they cannot improve themselves without more time passing. -The lack of an equipment table *at all* in this edition threw off my players who are used to having them, or at least a rubric for how much things should hurt. -Disciplines representing a significant XP sink, while yielding very little tangible benefit. -Overall, the group was confused by the Reson...

Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition **Rebirth of the vampires - a Mephisto review** # **Vampire V5** While in the late 90s the roleplaying game **Vampire - The Masquerade** was one of the most exciting game titles of its time, the game was eventually discontinued together with the entire World of Darkness. For Vampire, the metaplot introduced Gehenna - everything ended with the vampiric apocalypse. For a long time, it was quiet around Vampire, but with the success of the anniversary edition, the foundation was laid to let the game return in a completely new 5th edition. Even though **Vampire V5** picks up where its predecessors left off in many places, the game often goes completely new ways - and shows that the time of the last almost 20 years has not stood still in the world of vampires. **The world of the Vampire** The basic background of **Vampire** still remains: Players take on the role of vampires in a world that, on the surface at least, resembles ours. In the background, however, there are the so-ca...

M20 How Do You DO That?

M20 How Do You DO That? This book is a great idea, and while I love getting my mind around the idea that anything can happen in Mage, its very good to at least set some procedural ground rules. I needed this in order to circumvent power-gaming from one or two of my testier players. It is perfect in this way, as well as, being an avenue towards guiding players into what kind of magic they want to make. I do not like to think of these as hard and fast rules....more like guidelines! The book itself came with some notched edges, and I noticed the glue wasn't evenly coated on the spine(maybe I spend to much time around books to notice) but still I would say more than worth the price. The coloring of the premium print was very sexy and had great color blending the Classic World of Darkness books wish they had, definitely worth the upgrade right out of the gate! Thank you Drive Thru!...

Mage: The Ascension 20th Anniversary Edition I knew exactly what I was getting 5 stars for what was in the Mage 20th book. I love Mage and was amazed that they were printing off Premium editions. I purchased one, and when it came into my house and opened it, I was more than mildly dissapointed. The pages slipped out of the case and found out that the thing had split from its cover during shipping and might as well be a book that was faxed to me on a color printer(They are sending me a replacement!). The book and content is amazing, by far one of the most interest RPGs out there. The printing I will say is very pretty, I cannot deny that, the Printer's color makes the pages come to life in a way I know can hook players with just images and ideas. The delivery, as well as the quality of what was recieved was not worth roughly 120, however, I put in a ticket with DriveThruRPG to get this fixed. I have recieved contact with them within 20-40 minutes of my ticket, while I was intitally in doubt, the Customer Service he...

100 Wendigo Kinfolk 100 Wendigo Kinfolk 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 Wendigo based games with little work.

Anarch (Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition)

Anarch (Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition) **A vampire sect with more style than substance - a Mephisto review** # **Anarch** As a counterbalance to the **Camarilla** sourcebook, a corresponding volume for the anarchs has also been published. In a broad arsenal of articles, the perspective of the anarchs is presented here. The fact that this sect is less ordered than the Camarilla can be seen from the structure of the book because the articles are a colorful mixture of essays that cover a wide range of topics in very different styles. Basically, it showcases the opinions of individual anarchs very informally. There are introductory texts - almost manuals - for being a vampire, interviews with some free vampires, chat recordings and other articles. Of course - as expected for the anarchs - very different points of view meet here, which are sometimes more about the personal freedom of the vampires outside of the dominant Camarilla and sometimes a declaration of war on the Camarilla including a diablerie on the ancestors. Of...

Camarilla (Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition) **A new view of an ancient but recently changed vampire sect - a Mephisto review** # **Camarilla** The **Camarilla** book is the first sourcebook for V5 and focuses on the great sect that claimed to be responsible for all vampires. Written from the perspective of the famous Toreador Victoria Ash as a guide for her childe, the book first deals with the Camarilla as an organization. It explains the structure of the inner circle, the justiciars, the archons and the princes. Later on, the various roles and posts within a city are also explained and illustrated using selected exemplary personalities. Cults within the Camarilla are a new aspect, as the sect no longer denies the existence of the Antediluvians. Therefore, there are also cults worshiping Caine and his descendants. Of course, there are still various other cults, heresies, orders etc. A large part of the book is devoted to the objectives of the Camarilla and its most important tool, the Masquerade. The dominance of th...

Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition I want to preface this by saying I love the machanics and the actual crunch behind everything. What I hate, loathe with a passion, and cannot stand, is the layout. I either have to full screen this pdf to cycle through it or risk it skipping pages. The color palletes for their tables make it even more difficult if I'm trying to find important information, and in general parts of the mechanics are buried so deep in fluff that I often end up getting corrected by my ST about something I thought I knew. The bookmarks are also remarkably lacking, but that is pretty minor compared to whatver this double page layout fad is. ...
