Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition

Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition BLUF/TL;WR- If you can stomach the "edgy Orwellian" SJW garbage, and you don't mind the metaplot being even more hard-welded to the rules/releases, then perhaps it's worth a gamble. Would I purchase it again? No, because I don't like fueling idiotic philosophies and isms. Will I purchase future products in this line? I'm not sure, in light of the above, but now I've got yet another digibook as a spawning ground for electronic dust-bunnies. I'll try not to be overly redundant, but to reinforce/reiterate that already stated. 1. Aesthetics: too cluttered. I wish they'd come out with a bare bones/no art version. It's ~uselessly ~pretty. (mixed bag. not a fan of ~post/modernism, and some of the photos scream "fanboy/larp"; in short, they don't jibe with the tone, nor with the setting. Gothic = dark AND light, not just some cartooney/comic bookish, sophomoric black to the point of comedic. Also, such as with the "fashion" illos, it looks more like Shadowrun, than WoD. These vampir...

Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition

Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition Vampire: The Masquerade is an RPG that was popular through the 90s and early 2000s, focusing on modern-day vampires and the struggles of their afterlives. Vampiric characters had 'disciplines', which are vampiric powers determined by their membership in a 'clan', a group of vampires who trace their lineage back to the same vampiric sire. A large part of the game centered around the debate amongst vampires whether to silently coexist with humanity, and use their powers to rule from the shadows (the Masquerade--advocated by a group called the Camarilla), or to give into their monsterous, beastial nature and use their vampiric powers to crush humanity and feed off of mortals as if they were cattle (advocated by a group called the Sabbat). In previous incarnations of the game, this conflict drove much of the story. The Sabbat made trouble for the Camarilla, who sought fight off the Sabbat and cover up any sign of supernatural conflict (upholding the Masquerade). This new edition brings us...

Cheat Sheet for Chronicles of Darkness Rules

Publisher: White Wolf

Cheat Sheet for Chronicles of Darkness Rules Similar to this creator's Storyteller's Screen, they included some of the main mechanics & systems you might want easy access to during a game. This collection expands upon the ST screen, which provides a nice way to customize my screen based on my needs. Core book (CofD) page numbers included for quick reference. There's a lot of information packed on each page, but it nevertheless reads well. The only thing I'd want added is a summary of Ephemera abilities (Influences, Manifestations, etc.). Here's hoping this creator will make more cheat sheets and screens for some of the splats that are still lacking them!...

Chronicles of Darkness Storyteller Screen

Chronicles of Darkness Storyteller Screen This creator thoughtfully included some of the main mechanics & systems that a storyteller would want on a screen. Core book (CofD) page numbers included for quick reference. The main mechanics included are: actions/dice rolling, beats/XP, breaking points, combat summary, social maneuvering, conditions, and investigations. There's a lot of information packed on each page, but it nevertheless reads well. Glad to finally have an updated CofD ST screen, and I'm hoping this creator will make more for the splats that are still missing theirs! I also purchased the "Cheat Sheet" by the same creator, which provides a nice way to customize my screen based on my needs. Well done!...

W20 Cookbook

W20 Cookbook I have always been a fan of Werewolf the Apocalypse and I love to cook! So when I discovered that there is a Werewolf Cookbook, I had to check it out... I only got the book yesterday and have already made three of the dishes and while I would love to go into detail about the awesome lore associated with each tribe and sing the names and virtues of each recipe, I think I'll leave it to the potential buyers reading this... and let me say, you won't be disappointed!!! **Quick Note** If you're like me and like to have your books in the best condition possible, I strongly suggest that you purchase a second copy for reference only and not to used in the kitchen... the ink tends to smear with apple juices, and I'm sure with other liquids too....

Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition

Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition The system looks quite interresting, the way that the world has changed is compelling and the idea of the whole second inquisition, that is just superp, gotta admit. I like it. I like it a lot, actually. If only the lay-out had been better, this nearly reads as the old Malkavian clanbook, and if the Sabbat Clans had been included (Pappa needs his Lasombra!) then this game could have gotten 5 stars. And now for the things that bug me, that has nothing to do with the game, but must be adressed. In this game, we play as monsters. Monsters that were once humans. The very point of this game is to, at some point in time, to kill people. Not just bad people, but just a random stranger and then having to live with the consequences of what you did, all the while you struggle with the fact that you dont feel bad for squeezing every sanguine drop from that poor single mother you ran into on the bus as she was coming home from an 12 hour shift to feed her 3 children (All of which you foun...

The Monsters: A Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition Quickstart
by Chris G.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 11/29/2018 23:33:34
The Monsters: A Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition Quickstart I am a D&D5e player that is starting to branch out to other games. It was nice to find that VtM is starting a new edition, as I was looking for a jumping on point myself. The story is very interesting, however I had to improvise a few changes to make the characters more personally involved in the story. *Spoilers ahead* For instance, I made Webber secretly hire the "monster hunters" with AR-15s as he was looking to get out of involvement with the kindred. Additionally the flashback section needed to be removed entirely as it completely disregards player autonomy. So I had Sam reveal the necessary information from the flashback to them as they didn't remember their first few foggy days as vampires. It was also important to give the scapegoat/red herring character more of a backstory and reason to be hated by the town. In the end it felt like it needed a lot of tweaking but was still a solid premise. Guess I can't complain too much since it was free. Mechanically speaking I can't compar...

Enlightened Grimoire

Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 11/29/2018 23:20:07
Enlightened Grimoire With all of the positive reviews, I was excited to get this book. Unfortunately, I felt a bit disappointed by the content. First, a few nit-picky things. If you are going to charge $15 for a book, make sure someone other than yourself has checked for typographical and layout errors. While the errors I found after just a brief glance are not significant enough to impact use, it does diminish the overall quality of the book. As for the content itself, a cursory view found some discrepencies between this book and the rules as presented in M20. The author acknowledges the differences between editions, but a bit more time comparing the sphere levels found in How Do You DO That and M20 appears to be needed. The lack of due diligence means that the purchaser is left having to do additional legwork to fix the sphere requirements. The system presented for learning/creating rotes is unnecessary. The idea of rotes should not require the expediture of xp and M20 makes it clear taht rotes s...

V20 Beckett's Jyhad Diary This is now one of my favorite vtm books There are so many characters and places with well thought out stories. Great detail was taken to write about every clan/sect and gives you an idea about what's happening in the metaplot. Many chapters have addition rules or plots you could use or modify to your game. Thank you to all involved in writing this.

Weighing the Cost

Weighing the Cost Weighing the Cost is a moving story. The depth of this short adventure is in some ways heart wenching. Unlike a lot of scenario's the antagonist of this scenario is in many ways a relatable character driven by pain and lost. Mage like most WOD games is suppose to focus on the story of people rather than just a quest for power, and this adventure captures that dynamic wonderfully. Weighing the Cost is an amazing story to play threw, and if your Storyteller likes to run pre-planned scenarios that your group gives this adventure a try. ...

Sorcerer's Companion

Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 11/28/2018 18:01:13
Sorcerer's Companion The Sorcerer's Companion does a wonderful job, updating Sorcerer's to M20. The book does a wonderful job describing how sorcerer's could be intergrated into other WOD lines such as Vampire, Werewolf, Wraith and Changeling. The four paths presented in the book are well done. Chronomancy was our favorite. With all the paths, none seemed overpowered, or to complex. Our favorite part of the book was the section called "A Sorcerer's Grimoire", which presented us with tons of rituals for each of the paths. This was an area that the original Sorcerer book was lacking. The DSC Tabletop Gaming Club feels that the Sorcerer's Companion is a must have for all Sorcerer players. It fills in a gap that was missing for the Sorcerer character type....

Legends of the Clans
by DSC T. G. C. _.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 11/28/2018 17:37:46
Legends of the Clans Legends of the Clans has 13 chapters each chapter focusing on one of the 13 major clans of VTM. In each chapter, the author details three different "Legends" that most clan members have only heard rumor or stories about. Some of the Legends detailed mystical items. Some of the Legends detailed mythical places. Some of the Legends details people of legend. And some of the Legends detaileed obsure bloodlines. Overall the book was well put together and every "Legend" presented was interesting to read. We particularly enjoyed the new bloodlines "The Knights of Ares" and "The Shadow Hunters". The new revenant family "The Fallen" was also interesting and would make great antagonists for a story. Our personal favor "Legend" presented involved the sister of Augustus Giovanni. The DSC Tabletop Gaming Club strongly recommends this book for all VTM fans....

Rose City by Night Rose City by Night is an amazing piece work. It details the history and current setting for Portland, Oregon, a city that was in desperate need of a sourcebook. There is a section that expands on how vampires feed, which introduced a few new mechanics which are very interesting and effective. The NPC's introduced are rich but don't overshadow the setting. The DSC Gaming club recommends Rose City by Night as a must have for any storyteller setting a game in the US northwest.

Guide to the Night

Date Added: 11/27/2018 08:26:07
Guide to the Night When I picked up this book, I really didn't know too much about it, and other than my group is in the middle of playing a Vampire game right now and we were all for getting new books for it. I heard about the new social combat rules, and were interested in giving it a spin; Social Manuevering is rather limited in that regard. Sadly, this book didn't really do much for me. The book starts off in the Introduction giving you roleplaying tips, how actors get into character, and more. Nothing really exciting; either it matches with how your table likes to play and have fun, or it doesn't, and isn't a big help. Different people have different playstyles, and this definitely favors a specific style over others. Chapter 1 got into a big Mirror-shard like analysis of different games in different settings. Space, in the past, etc. Can be cool, but not really something that will help you with a regular modern day game, and we were already inside of a game. Not that helpful for something to ...

Changeling: The Dreaming 20th Anniversary Wallpapers

Changeling: The Dreaming 20th Anniversary Wallpapers I love Changeling the Dreaming and its art. I bought the wallpaper thinking it is a pack containing multiple designs, but there is only one design with different sizes. The problem with the wallpaper is that there is so much going on, and it is difficult to see the icons on my desktop. This can easily be fixed by leaving some space on either side of the wallpaper. As a wallpaper, it is not really suited for its purpose, which is why I rated it 2 stars.
