Vampire: The Masquerade


From announcement to pre-order to release, the new 5th edition of Vampire: The Masquerade is taking no time (even immortal undead hate waiting). Modiphius has started taking pre-orders for the core rulebook (in three versions, depending on how luxurious you want the book to be), as well as Camarilla and Anarch sourcebooks, dice sets, notebooks, and various bundles thereof.
Vampire: The Masquerade is one of those venerable titles in gaming. You might not hear it quite as often as some others, but it's withstood the test of time and is played by many all over the world. As such, it's pretty big news when a new edition of it is looking to hit the streets. And that's just what's happening this year. The 5th edition will be coming out due to a partnership between White Wolf and Modiphius.
Well, it seems that Halloween is time for monster-related news of all type. Though this is a bit different than a sale or a new zombie mini. Paradox Interactive has announced that they are purchasing White Wolf Publishing from CCP Games. This means that World of Darkness, Vampire: the Masquerade, and Werewolf: The Apocalypse are now under Paradox's umbrella. Paradox has said that White Wolf will remain an independent entity with its own dedicated team.
Onyx Path Publishing is running a Kickstarter for their Deluxe V20 Lore of the Clans book. They're going all out for this one. The book will be embossed with an integrated bookmark, in full color, and with a "unique deluxe treatment." The book, part of their 20th Anniversary series, goes into a detailed history of each of the Vampire clans and why they don't always get along so well with one-another.
The campaign is already funded and closing in on being 2x over their goal. They're set to run for another 22 days.
