There have been some fantastic announcements recently for Vampire: The Masquerade, however, there is a new book on its way focussing on the lore and backstory of vampire linage. The Book of Nod is coming to the game by Renegade Games Studios and looking to share in the history of the haunted fiends.

The Book of Nod // Vampire: The Masquerade

The linage of vampires is no more than a myth. A speculation of the first vampires to roam, to feed on humanity. Whether these tales are not widespread due to the fear installed, or the tales of the unknown have been buried over time. But the Book of Nod has come into fruition, containing the deep secrets to the unknown stories from Vampire history.

The story follows Vampires in their tracks throughout ancient lore, teaching all that was valuable in the past to an awakened audience keen to learn more:

Their stories begin with the Chronicle of Caine and the earliest nights of the vampire. The Chronicle of Shadow reveals Caine's hidden teachings. Finally, the Chronicle of Secrets unveils the deepest mysteries of the Damned, including the coming dread of Gehenna.

Have you ever used historical texts to fuel your current RPG? Concealed in a gothic faux-leatherbound case, the upcoming release of The Book of Nod will allow you to incorporate the lore and backstory into your current Vampire: The Masquerade campaign. So if you are one who loves to be immersed in the rich story a game system has to offer, you may want to take a look at The Book of Nod.

The Book of Nod was originally released in 1993, however, the re-print is ready for action and contains artwork that was originally printed in the first edition.

It would not be vampires if there wasn't an artsy factor to the spine-chilling book. The book can be used in many different ways. Presented in a poetic fashion, the texts have been overwatched and coveted by Elders and Scholars as sacred reading. Whether you want to use the new content to thicken up your story, use it as an in-game prop or delve into the lore to find clues to enhance your campaign. The Book of Nod provides a completely new insight rather than a new book jam-packed with new rules. I feel that Vampires do things so gracefully...

The Book of Nod is currently on pre-order, looking to be released later this year along with a Deluxe version later in 2022.

Do you like the idea of a lore-filled book to enhance your RPG campaign, or do you prefer to create this yourself?
