Organised Play for V5 is going to be a global event and we’ll be co-ordinating with our partners everywhere to bring you a series of fantastic free Chronicles tailor made for use at conventions, store events and in your own groups. We also want you to have your say in how it evolves too. So if you would like to get Chronicles in advances of release, help introduce the game to new players, grow the community and a chance to provide your feedback please sign up here: https://www.modiphius.com/organised-play.html

PLAYTESTING YOUR THING?

If you’d to be involved in on-going development of new V5 content please sign up for our playtest team for V5 and include in the comments that you’re interested in V5. We’d expect you to have a regular group playing V5 so we can give you certain content to try out as needed and give us feedback.

NEW RELEASES!

The Fall of London is in development right now. This will be the first official Chronicle for Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition and it’s being produced by Modiphius Entertainment.

“London is burning. As the Second Inquisition put the city’s Kindred to the torch, your characters wake from torpor. The sensible thing would be to flee now, but before you can leave the capital, you have one last job to do…”

This campaign is perfect to bring your Vampire players up to speed on the plot developments in Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition or as as a gateway for new players.

Lead Development of this project is in the capable hands of none other than Steffie De Vaan! Her team of writers includes a mix of industry veterans and rising stars, including a few actual Londoners for good measure!

Coming on its heels is the Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition Players Guide. An essential guide containing additional information on Clans, Disciplines, new tools plus some excellent playing advice and alternative ways to play. And finally, an overview of all 13 Kindred clans in one place! Find out everything you needed to know to play your best V5 game yet.

Last but not least, we’re working on the Vampire the Masquerade 5th Edition Starter Set which is aimed at your friends who want to get started as Storytellers. It’s the perfect choice for those wanting to dip their fingers in to the Masquerade without purchasing the core book. The Starter Set box will contain an abridged rulebook, a starter chronicle that will teach you to run and play the game as you go, dice, pre-generated characters: everything you need to get your first V5 Chronicle on the way!

We’ll be updating you via this V5 mailing list over the coming months and you can expect these to hit retail shelves by February 2020, however the Fall of London Chronicle and Vampire Player’s Guide will be available in advance PDF by Christmas."

A Title Much Cooler Than Anything on the Old Site
I've been interested in trying Vampire the Masquerade, mainly because it became big after I went to college and stopped playing TTRPGs, so I missed out on it. But I've heard a lot of negative comments from friends who played it back in the 90s. Most of the negative comments seem to be about experiences with the LARP form of the game, and the fact that the games attracted a lot of young, horny, edge-lord types that could lead to some uncomfortable situations.

Are the organized play games going to be tabletop, LARP-style, or either?
 
Hello, Jason Carl from White Wolf here. The Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition (V5) organized play program from Modiphius is for tabletop RPGs.

I’ve signed up to show my interest on their website. I’m really looking forward to it and I hope to meet new players interested in the game. Vampire does deal with a lot of mature themes and I appreciate the authors of V5 making a point of informing readers about the importance of making sure all the players are comfortable with the subject matter. I can’t speak for Modiphius but I hope to see similar sentiments in their Organized Play. And I suspect the content of OP material will not be as dark as it could be owing to it being difficult to judge the comfort level of so many different players.

One of my biggest concerns is lack of appropriate game space. I can play Vampire at home but my FLGS is generally raucous which isn’t conducive to a storytelling game.

Vampire is a very political and social game which lends itself well to LARPing. LARPs are like anything involving people, they will vary in content and quality. I have had many great experiences with Vampire both in tabletop and LARP form, so just look for a group that works well for you and give it a shot.
