  • For setting material, I really recommend the Camarilla book. Less crunch and lots and lots of background on the setting changes.

  • I don't agree with everything you said, but I agree with those two statements. DAV20 was hit and miss, unfortunately. I would have liked to see a real anniversary edition instead of an evolved version of the rules and setting. Something a lot more like V20.



    VtM was never timeless. V3 especially was steeped in the millenialism of the 90ies. VtM captured perfectly the feeling of the last decade of the millenium. Today, you might not see that, but I think one of the reasons for the tremendous success of Vampire was that it built on the same themes as X-Files and other millenialist...

  • I completely agree. The DAV period was the best period of the Dark Ages game for vampires.



    I think that's the one thing we won't see. I think OPP had an additional reason for developing the Storypath system besides the "system requirements" for powering cinematic games. It's based in the Storyteller, and Storytelling system as well as the system originally powering Aeon Trinity and Exalted. But the Storypath system is its own game used on gamelines that belong to OPP exclusively. Both the Storyteller and the Storytelling system are tied up with properties that...

  • I think DAV20 is the most evolved the system got, and would be solid foundation if you continue with a rules kernel that at this time is almost 30 years old. Shadowrun re-invented its dice mechanics in SR4, D&D 5e (hugely successful) is a lot more innovative compared to the older core rules (AD&D 2nd Edition and earlier). Even Cthulhu 7th edition updated a couple of rules elements.

    The one thing that I can see improving in V5 is the base competency of the characters which seems to be lower compared with both V20 and Requiem. Also, the XP rate is a bit low. The dice system...

  • I think the earliest we can count on a revised version of V5 is after all clans and the Sabbat book are published. That's just common sense. The system itself isn't bad, it's just disorganized. Actually, the foundations are pretty strong. Even the concept of Touchstones can easily be expanded (as Requiem) shows. But with only three books officially published, it's a bit early for a revised edition.

    We have the core rulebook, as well as the Camarilla and Anarch guides. Chicago by Night is currently only available to backers. There is a complete manuscript for Cults of the Blood Gods,...

  • I've played Conan, John Carter, Star Trek, and even some Mutant Chronicles. I trust them as well. They may not be on time, but they get development finished, and books printed. Really looking forward to their stuff. I am also looking forward to Cults of the Blood Gods, and the printed Chicago by Night....

  • In the original announcement from Dec 20,2018 Modiphius communicated a much more optimistic timeline, Initially, they estimated a Summer 2019 release date for both the Player's Guide and the Fall of London Chronicle. The Starter Set was announced for Christmas 2019, and the Second Inquisition sourcebook for Summer 2020.

    On July 9, 2019 Modiphius communicated an update telling us that the Player's Guide and the Fall of London Chronicle should be available as physical products in Feb 2020, and we would get advance PDFs before Christmas 2019.

    Because of this update, people...

  • The new sect could turn out to be the Hecata. The Ventrue prince Marcel Guilbeau was killed by Hurricane Katrina, and the Tremere Antonio Calbullarshi is prince. The Camarilla is thinking about sending Aunt Bedelia (from Necropolis Atlanta) there to restore order. If those schemes succeded, is yet unclear.
