    V5 list of upcoming books

    I know there's the main book, the Camarilla book, and the Anarch book on their way right now, I know there's a Chicago book being done, but do we have a list somewhere of all the books we know are coming and about what time we should expect them? I'm dying to know more about the other Clans and their status. In part because I've seen some hints that the Cappadocians are going to be more prominent in this setting and I'm extremely eager to know more. Thanks in advance and sorry if this had an obvious solution but I just haven't seen one and I've tried looking already.

    But after that? Bloodlines? It gets old quick.

    This is where its going for a 2e feel!

    Now if only each new bloodline were more brokenly powerful than the one before it!

    Come on Dirtier Secrets of the Blackhand 5e....

    Chicago by Night also notably is a book where I often mine Kindred. Unless I'm adapting a really small city, there's no reason you can't use most of the NPCs there.

    I actually am kind of amused at the frothing rage of people who said, "I WOULD *NEVER* BUY A CITY BOOK! HOW DARE YOU PUT MY BELOVED LASOMBRA IN CHICAGO! NOW I HAVE TO BUY A BOOK I DON'T WANT."

    I'm like....isn't that the point?

    You can't copyright Hecate.

    You may find SOME mention of them by this name in the V5Camarilla book... For what that's worth.

    not my words, I only translated

    Hecata is also a genus, not that it matters exactly in this case, but I just took it to mean they are calling themselves the Hecata as in they associate themselves with her.

    Uhm... apparently English Wikipedia miss something present in the italian one...
    Here's the first lines of the italian entry for Hecate
    "Ecate (in greco antico: Ἑκάτη, Hekátē) o Hekate o Hekat (in latino: Hecata o Hecate) è un personaggio di origine pre-indoeuropea che fu ripreso nella mitologia greca e romana e trasportato poi nella religione greca e romana."
    which translates roughly in
    "Hecate (ancient Greek: Ἑκάτη, Hekátē) or Hekate or Hekat (Latin: Hecata or Hecate) is a figure of pre-Indo-European origin that was later introduced in the Greek and Roman mythology and then carried to the Greek and Roman religion."

    which isn't necessarily a bad thing, if a parallel civilization proliferates just 2 steps away from the human one, makes sense for them to come up with strange names just a step or two away from the "real world" 's ones...
    (unless when is just a case of questionable translation... at night I still shiver for the names of certain Giovanni's rituals...)

    Wouldn't it be the Hecate according to the goddess?
