A Storytelling game of personal and political horror.

You are a vampire, struggling for survival, supremacy, and your own fading humanity—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 deal with it, it will overcome your mind and drive you to terrible acts to slake it. You walk this razor's edge every night. This is the original and ultimate roleplaying game of personal and political horror.

Fifth Edition is a return to Vampire's original vision, moving boldly into the 21st century. While the rules have been redesigned, this new edition honors 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.

    VtM 5th Core book

    Posted by James on Jul 10th 2022

    The purchase was very easy and the PDF access was quick. As for the book contents, I am concerned that they presented a generic list of Clans but the Lasombra & Hecata who are part of the Camarilla are not included. PSA: Vampire: The Masquerade Companion is a sourcebook for Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition. The book is only available in PDF format, and can be downloaded for free from the official World of Darkness website using a Paradox Account. (This has the Ravnos, Salubri, Tzimisce) Hopefully they do small books like past editions for each Clan/Bloodline.

    Vampire 5th Edition

    Posted by Jeremiah McCoy on May 18th 2022

    I have played Vampire the Masquerade for around 30 years, since 1st edition. I might leave for a time but I usually come back to it. This latest edition is excellent. It incorporates new mechanics to empasize one of the more compelling aspects of Vampire, Hunger. It is less handwaved than earlier editions and that pleases me. The production quality is excellent and the updates to the story are great. Good Work!!

    Good Quality in compression well organized and a great game to play, I would have ordered a paperback but there is no shipping to canada which is disappointing.

    Great read

    Posted by Giovana on Dec 8th 2021

    The contents of the book are amazing and the photos and pictures are nice to look at as well. I just haven't found an audio version of it (which would be amazing), but I love the fact that the PDF comes with the physical version. That is a great attention to the needs of a group of friends that want to play and the team is highly deserving of congratulations.

    The artwork and layout of this book is stellar. Lore first, rules last, as it should be. I cannot wait to get my hard copy!

    VtM 5E Core Book PDF

    Posted by Mona Juntunen on Sep 10th 2021

    Up to date, without the errors of the old Modiphius print run, but at the time of writing there are no bookmarks, you have to manually find the right pages.

    Lacking Bookmarks

    Posted by Jacques Costa Ortiz on Jul 31st 2021

    The book is already difficult to consult on the go and the PDF version without bookmarks, makes it annoyingly difficult.
