Vampire: The Masquerade 20th Anniversary Edition
by Björn L.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 02/27/2019 06:59:31
Vampire: The Masquerade 20th Anniversary Edition *The following review was originally published in **Mephisto 62** and translated from German (find orignal German review below).* # **Vampires V20** 20 years ago, **Vampire: The Masquerade** was one of the most popular role-playing games. The concept of letting players slip into the role of monsters - in this case vampires - was still new at the time. The ***World of Darkness*** quickly grew to include werewolves, magicians, fairies, ghosts, demons and other creatures. A special aspect of the role-playing game has always been the great metaplot, which stretched from the origins of the vampires to the modern game world. This metaplot eventually led to an apocalyptic scenario in which the game world was destroyed - and at the same time the role-playing system was discontinued. In short: After the 3rd edition of **Vampire**, it was finally over (if you see *Vampire: The Requiem* as a system in its own right). 20 years after the first edition **Vampire: The Masquerade 20th Anniversa...

The Cainite Conspiracies Anthology

The Cainite Conspiracies Anthology *The following review was originally published in **Mephisto 64** and translated from German (find orignal German review below).* # **The Cainite Conspiracies** **The Cainite Conspiracies** is an anthology of short stories from the world of ***Vampire: The Dark Ages***. Not surprisingly, each clan gets its own short story, which illuminates the atmosphere of a clan, its secrets or even the intrigues and conflicts of the medieval nights with the help of a well-chosen character. The stories are as different as the clans themselves, and the way the story is told also varies considerably. Thus some examples illustrate vividly the conflicts between the clans and the intrigues at the medieval courts, while others refer to great events in the past and in the future. In the case of the Assamites, there is even a tale of an event that has serious implications for the entire clan. As different as the themes and the narrative styles are, as different is the quality of the stories from...

V20 Ghouls & Revenants

Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 02/26/2019 01:35:41
V20 Ghouls & Revenants *The following review was originally published in **Mephisto 62** and translated from German (find orignal German review below). * # **Ghouls & Revenants** **Ghouls & Revenants** is the source book about ghouls and revenants for **Vampire**. The source book begins by describing the themes and moods used when playing with ghouls. Then there follows a long chapter describing the different roles of ghouls but also of the revenant families. The chapter explores the origins of the ghouls and gives some hints on the bigger background story of Vampire. The fact that ghouls are given a more important role can be seen, for example, in the four age groups, because ancient ghouls are also mentioned, which are very powerful and initiated into many secrets. The second chapter is dedicated to the rules and above all to the blood bond that determines the existence of many ghouls. However, other mechanisms such as the handling of disciplines, aging, healing, frenzy, clan weaknesses etc. are a...

Clanbook: Tzimisce - Revised Edition Sadly the mail carrier left the package in the rain so it got soaked all the way through. I've read this clanbook before and it's amazing and very helpful. Fantastic print job. Definitly worth your money. DriveThru will always have my business.

Weighing the Cost

Weighing the Cost I enjoyed reading this story, and I would definitely use this in one of my games. It is rare for me to use a prepared story as it is written, normally preferring to chop bits out or add bits in to fit "my style" of playing. This story would need no such modification. I really appreciated the focus on normal people in normal situations. Mage can be about very magical, wondrous topics, but there really needs to be room for personal and relatable stories we can all identify with. This story provides exactly that. The characters are all believable, the situation does not break suspension of disbelief (I know...this is Mage, but some scenarios can be pretty "out there"), and it can be used to remind players about consequences of their characters' actions. On another note, I am also creating some Community Content for Mage. I bought this to get another author's take on structuring a Mage story and its many components. I was not disappointed in this aspect, either. Surely, this will se...

Bordeaux by Night - Players Guide
by John M. S.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 02/21/2019 18:28:58
Bordeaux by Night - Players Guide This is a detailed sourcebook that, as a storyteller, I feel I could use to run a short stopover game where players in a french campaign make a stop for a short time in Bordeaux before moving on. As it is a player's guide, it alone isn't necessarily enough for a storyteller to run an off the shelf sort of game as only the public face of the NPCs is covered. That being said it is a good resource for players and will make a good companion to the Storyteller's Handbook for Bordeaux when it comes out. I have a much more detailed review [HERE](https://itsmorethanjustgaming.com/2019/02/21/bordeaux-

Ephemeral Influence
by Justin S.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 02/20/2019 14:49:23
Ephemeral Influence One of the things a lot of people have had trouble with in Chronicles is the Influence system. While assorted books get into the basics of what dot of an Influence can do, they're meant to be mostly plot devices. This doesn't help some of the more mechanically-minded storytellers, or players (as PCs are capable of getting Influences). Ephemeral Influence breaks down the mechanics, still leaving some open to plot device but giving you a sturdy framework to build off of. It starts with breaking down each dot, similar to how Mage has its Practices, it offers you some rules capable at each dot of Influence. Then it goes into specific Influences, covering Air, Authority, Death, Dogs, Disease, Earth, Electricity, Emotions, Fear, Fire, Information, Location, Time, Vice, and Water. Each Influence has many individual powers beneath it, offering rules and Tilt suggestions for them, including multiple options at different dot levels. There's a wide variety of powers here, and they're under sui...

M20 The Art of Mage: 20 Years and More
by Charles S.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 02/19/2019 01:20:29
M20 The Art of Mage: 20 Years and More I love this book. It has all the great stuff of the Revised Art of Mage book, but updated. Similar amount of art, though slightly less dense. But that lower density is replaced by words describing the process and discussing the art, which is excellent. Best of all, most of the artists have links to their websites, in case anyone has it in them to commission or even just buy prints of pieces they love. Also, though the Matt Korteling entry, I learned that Mage Minis exist, which...rather surprised me (WoD never seemed super great at tactical combat stuff that minis are good for) and I just hope that someday, whoever has the rights to them at the moment sells them or the files required to 3d print them. The discussion of signature characters is excellent, covering characters from the beginning of Mage all the way through new ones created for Mage 20. Particularly nice given the lack of a Mage Who's Who book. Overall, I recommend it even for people who aren't big into art book...

Cambridge Security

Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 02/18/2019 17:59:12
Cambridge Security Cambridge Security is a follow up book to Bloodline Cambridge, though that book isn't really needed to make use of Cambridge Security. The book details the founding of Cambridge Security, a company that provides security services thoughout the world of darkness while fighting a secret war against the forces of evil. Although the mudane actions of the company are glossed over, the details of their covert operations division Black Aegis is well presented. The best part of the book is the vast number of characters detailed in the book. The Tabletop Gaming Cclub recommends this book be part of every storytellers library. ...

The Art of Mage the Ascension
by Charles S.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 02/18/2019 17:39:33
The Art of Mage the Ascension This book is exactly what it says: the art of Mage: the Ascension. Overall, it has a decent selection of pieces (taste varies, of course, I would pick different ones most likely, but the choices were generally good and from a proper variety of Mage artists. The text included was generally ok, nothing particularly special, though there were a few weird layout quirks (extra spacing in words) and the section on the Mage Tarot was a bit of a mess, despite being simple (withthe Traditions and Nephandi established as corresponding to Rods/Questing and Cups/Primordialism, but no such thing for Dynamism/Pattern, despite Pattern particularly being obviously the Technocracy....

Beckett’s Vampire Folio 25: Death Has Many Faces Beckett's Vampire Folios do a great job of distilling material from Beckett's Jyhad Diary into something that is easily useable by Storytellers.
