Hell, yes. I’ve always been a fan of the Malkavians. Who doesn’t love deranged maniacs?

I’ve toyed with the idea of vampire in the past, but was never sure I could get my players into it as the focus always seemed to story based… and they like their tactical combat.

Not sure if 5th changes this at all.

I’ve always been intrigued by this game but never had the chance to play it. I read the rulebook for I think 2nd ed in my youth as well as werewolf and wraith but never played any of them.

I won´t delve into this unless Nosferatu is included and the miniature looks like Klaus Kinski in the fabulous movie.

Super excited to see V:tM Back in print! I’m a total sucker for such a meta-rich game.

Long time casual lurker, first time commenting! I’ve been able to look at the PDF due to a friend having purchased the book and letting me have a look on his computer, but I would rather have the physical book in hand because the layout is just not good for digital reading (colors + column switching + neon isn’t keen on my eyes).
I’m really digging the new mechanics and the new approach to core games, I’m already porting my settings to this new rendition.
I’m not buying the new art (I mean, “everyone has alternative fashion style” photography) at all, but hey, can’t have it all :p

In their panel they had a really good answer for the photography. They want people to be able to create their own fan content, and photography these days, compared to other forms of digital art, is highly accessible.

That I need to agree, and it is a good argument, but those photos are just bad and badly integrated into the book, pandering to LARPers who want to dress up the most outrageous way possible and, well, to me it misses the mark on what a gothic punk game is (and, shocker, it’s not clothes). Vampires should look normal, mundane even, after all, “Masquerade”. In my games more often than not, the casuals wear a tee and jeans, the formals wear a well made suit (and not shiny satin blue horrors), and the extravagant wear expensive timeless elegance. Adding three hundred belts like if it’s FF is not elegant. If you really want, even, a guy wearing a Team Edward Tee, or a Sesame Street Count is far more applicable than the “who can be the most Alternative?” contest we seem to have. We’re talking about elite society, after all, not teens going “daaaark Rebel Phase”. Those pictures don’t age well, actually plenty of them are already out dated. Vampires are timeless, not trendy, and when they’re trendy, is by little touches and for the smallest effort. I mean, it’s not like EVERYONE has an innate ability to understand, invest time and money, and have the bother to care that much about fashion looks. It’s not like vampires have the time to spend 3h every week picking up their style, doing their make up, when they’re effectively useless 50% of the time. After all, can you, if you’re not deep into music and following music news, quote 15 of the top 100 songs playing currently in hype clubs, if you’re not 18? Can you name 20 fashion influencers, current edgy trendy tv series? Stranger Things is already out-dated :p Vampires ain’t got time for any of this shit lol

If you want to have a laugh, grab the book, check page 232, and notice that this very classy guy has his pants’ zip down. That’s just unacceptable for professional photography, professional modeling (because these are professional models, we’ve been told), and they might go ahead and explain it away as being intentional, I know it’s not.

I’ve been playing WoD games since the early 90’s, I’m definitely interested in a new edition.

I am a fan of the Ventru as well. Really looking forward to a new edition of Mage the Ascension. The whole world is amazing.

I didn’t know that this was still a thing.
Not played this since 1991/92: clan Tremere.
Wow!

World of Darkness was excellent, new World of Darkness wasn’t

Hopefully this new one will re-kindred the fires so to speak although I’m nervous, will the Tremere return to their rightful place

Fortunately New World of Darkness, aka Chronicles of Darkness has many games out now in their second edition and many more are getting second editions soon. In fact the new edition of Vampire the Masquerade borrows some systems from Vampire the Requiem 2nd ed.

My first (and longest) experience with being a GM (or Storyteller) was with Vampire the Masquerade Revised Edition when I was a teenager. Vampire will always hold a special place in my (gaming) heart, and I hope to run this edition with my current group (which includes atleast one member from the days of yore).
