This is the Deluxe edition version of the core Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition book, which comes with a beautiful special marbled faux leather cover finish with red foil print.
Vampire: The Masquerade is the original and ultimate roleplaying game of personal and political horror. You are a vampire, struggling for survival, supremacy, and your own fading humanity. You are afraid of what you are capable of, and fearful of the inhuman conspiracies that surround you.
As a vampire you suffer the pangs of the Hunger, the relentless and terrible thirst for human blood. If you refuse to address it, it will overcome your mind and drive you to terrible acts to slake it. You walk this razor’s edge every night.
Dark designs, bitter enemies, and strange allies await you in this World of Darkness.
The classic that changed roleplaying games forever returns!
This fifth edition features a streamlined, modern rules design, beautiful new full-colour art, and a rich story experience for players. Powered by the innovative Hunger cycle, the game also includes rules for creating system supported character coteries, Loresheets to directly involve players with their favourite parts of the setting and The Memoriam, a new way to bring the character’s detailed backgrounds and expand on them in-session.
V5 is a return to Vampire’s original vision, moving boldly into the 21st century. While the rules have been redesigned, this new edition honours 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.
