Virtual Tabletops are a great way to game with your friends when you can't be there in person. I'm in a game that plays on Roll20 every weekend. And soon, if you're all about that Vampire life... err, un-life, you can play Vampire: The Masquerade on the platform. Pre-orders are being taken now.
From the announcement:
Renegade Game Studios is proud to announce an expanded partnership with Roll20, beginning with the release of Paradox Interactive’s Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition Roleplaying Game on the Roll20 platform.
Roll20 is the all-in-one solution for organizing and playing tabletop games online. The virtual tabletop contains a variety of communication tools including chat, voice and video. The flexible toolset and extensive Marketplace offerings allow you to play your tabletop games, your way.
The Roll20 release of Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition Core Rulebook will feature all book assets, lore, and information fully integrated for the VTT, ready for you and your coterie to sink their fangs into on day one. This includes loresheets, player token packs, in-world lore articles that can be dragged into your game, and any storyteller characters, Predator Types, Advantages, and Disciplines with in-app drag-and-drop support.
In the Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition RPG tabletop game, 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, but it is vital that you keep up the Masquerade: no humans can ever know that vampires actually exist.
The story you weave with the help of other players and your Storyteller will challenge your character to navigate through their unlife - walking the razor's edge between your lost humanity and the dangers of the Hunger that brings out the monster inside you, all while contending with political and social encounters and avoiding threats that are out to destroy you. This is the original and ultimate roleplaying game of personal and political horror.
