[Modiphius] Vampire the Masquerade V5

Post by shesheyan » Mon Apr 30, 2018 4:32 pm

Looks like Modiphius is becoming a major player in the RPG industry. They now have the rights to publish the V5 version of Vampire. I've never played Vampire. Maybe the other GM of my group would be interested in this.

V5 is a return to Vampire's original vision, moving boldly into the 21st century. While the rules have been redesigned, this new edition honors the deep story of the original, advancing the metaplot from where it left off and detailing exactly what has happened in the world of the Kindred up until tonight. The terror of the Second Inquisition, the conspiracies behind the Gehenna War, and the rekindling of the War of Ages: these are the building blocks of the modern V5 chronicle

This pre-order includes the print versions of the corebook estimated to ship in the August. You will receive a download of official V5 Wallpaper immediately, and later a code to redeem on the World of Darkness website for the PDF version.

After talking to my group, one GM is interested in running a game with Vampire 1E. The story will be set in the 90s. That is kinda cool. What was contemporary (1991) then is now 27 years old. Dial Up modems, pagers, phone booths, prehistoric cellphones, VHS tapes... ;)

I've tried the alpha rules. Looked cool, and quite streamlined. I also fancied Hunger, which kicked in far more often than Frenzy of old editions. Thing is, my group isn't into Vampire (unless it's Dark Ages), so I don't think I'll see much more of it.

Interesting!

Are they operating on a lisence from White Wolf?

Will this affect Onyx Path's White Wolf lisences of Classic World of Darkness, New World of Darkness or Exalted?

I'm guessing its a lisence. At one point I was wondering if they had bought White Wolf.

It is great seeing some very talented designers on that list. I am not an expert on WW games though, so maybe they are all well known names?
