    A vampire sect with more style than substance - a Mephisto review

    Posted by Björn Lippold on Oct 30th 2022

    As a counterbalance to the Camarilla sourcebook, a corresponding volume for the anarchs has also been published. In a broad arsenal of articles, the perspective of the anarchs is presented here. The fact that this sect is less ordered than the Camarilla can be seen from the structure of the book because the articles are a colorful mixture of essays that cover a wide range of topics in very different styles. Basically, it showcases the opinions of individual anarchs very informally. There are introductory texts - almost manuals - for being a vampire, interviews with some free vampires, chat recordings and other articles. Of course - as expected for the anarchs - very different points of view meet here, which are sometimes more about the personal freedom of the vampires outside of the dominant Camarilla and sometimes a declaration of war on the Camarilla including a diablerie on the ancestors. Of course, historical events such as the Council of Thorns and the first Anarch revolt, but also the incidents surrounding Theo Bell in Prague and the departure of the Brujah are addressed. Analogous to the Camarilla book, the clans are introduced a little bit, but in a much more informal way and without rules (and of course with a focus on the anarch clans). Furthermore, a new clan is added, which was formerly known as Followers of Set, but is now only called The Ministry. As before, this clan consists of seducers who exploit the dark sides in their victims. However, they are no longer fixated on the Set myth. Also, their former clan discipline is changed, so that they now possess Protean like the Gangrel. Even though Anarch is easy to read, it seems to be much less relevant for the game than the Camarilla book. It is especially important to note that the anarchs include vampires who have never come into contact with the whole Camarilla background at all. This idea makes them vampires who can have their unique approaches, which opens up a vast new field of options. Unfortunately, this approach quickly fades into the background. In many cases, the texts instead consist of opinions, insults of the Camarilla and similar things without really providing concrete, reliable information. The problem here is probably most likely that the anarchs are not a uniform group, but a mixture of all those who do not belong to the Camarilla. Moreover, I got the feeling that it helps to know the former background of the game in order to better understand some of the topics. Even though The Ministry is now part of the anarchs, it seems a bit strange that you need this volume to get one of the former clans as a character option. Anarch is undoubtedly not a bad sourcebook and worth reading. It offers some interesting ideas, but it is not essential and for many gaming groups perhaps rather unsuitable, since it contributes little concrete to the game. (Björn Lippold)

    Anarch sourcebook

    Posted by Raine on Oct 27th 2022

    Watching the LA by Night series motivated me to get this book. Great options for players and storytellers alike. It's going to see a lot of use in the New York based chronicle my group will be playing soon.

    The book is amazing. The way the little stories of Anarch life are written gives me so many ideas about future characters or tweaks I can make on existing characters. The photography and art are also amazing. All in all an amazing product that I absolutely loved reading. I recommend it for anyone interested into a nice window into Anarch kindred unlife.

    As expected

    Posted by Sin Dolina on Sep 23rd 2021

    Premise: I did not have the time yet to sink deep into the content of the book so this review is purely for the PDF format, same review applies to the Camarilla PDF: it is perfect as expected. Pages are clear, extremely well sectioned and in general everything that you'd expect by a professional PDF. I'll probably jump between physical and PDF based on where I am reading without issue from what I tested so far.
