The gameplay itself ran like clockwork. I say this because it is important to understand that I went into V5 as a new player to the game, but not new to lore and ideology of Vampire The Masquerade. And all I’ll say about blood sorcery is that it’s not as super as it used to be. Vampires hide in the shadows to protect themselves and their lineage. No matter what kind of character you create, there's always one defining trait you do not get to escape: you are cursed. Each time a vampire has to use certain powers they have to quell their hunger. Loresheets are merits (advantages) that you can purchase, ranging from 1 to 5 dots, with each being tied to a specific person, belief, or group in the overarching canon of the metaplot. A good chunk of the book also delves into the politics of the underworld of which you are a part of. Together my players and I spent about 6 hours total going over every detail we can find and creating characters. Given that rouse checks are usually made with one dice and players may feel a little weak without being able to soak damage, I wonder if most players will rush higher blood potency and later levels of Fortitude. Draining a human of their safe limit of blood (2 hunger slaked) takes a scene to accomplish. There’s a focus on feeding scenes, how you hunt prey, and the benefits you get as part of being that hunter type. I don’t think that’s true, because v5 incorporates everything from the older versions of the game – including the cherished metaplot – while allowing for the street-level play in a more magnified way. When you took Bashing damage, you put a little “/” in your health box for each damage taken. Failing a roll when I’ve got 10’s showing is something I can’t agree with.
If you succeed, your hunger stays where it is; fail and it goes up by one. Portillon is how well-defended your domain is, subtracting one die from an intruder’s dice pool on any action taken against the domain without the coterie’s knowledge. Knives, claws, swords, and other bladed weapons dealt lethal, which was about par for combat against other vampires. Regardless of which side you take, secrecy is still their ultimate goal as they don't want the world to know of vampires and would rather leave them to myth, games, and poorly written romance novels. So let's start off with the book itself. There’s this amazing collectors edition with the core rulebook, two extra supplemental books, and the most beautiful vampire dice. I haven’t played Vampire The Masquerade since 1991 so I wasn’t around for the rules changes nor can I tell you how much is different from the original version. If you want to do it violently, you can make it faster, but it could kill the vessel.
A self-proclaimed geek, Rob loves all things toys and games and even helps raise his four kids in his spare time. Vampire: the Masquerade, the premier horror roleplaying game (sorry, Call of Cthulhu), made its biggest appearance since V20 with the launch of a new edition at Gen Con 2018. It is also known as the Second Inquisition. When the opportunity to take a look at 5th Edition before it came out popped up I jumped at the opportunity, though I have to admit it’s been a long time since I’ve spent time in the World of Darkness. Because messy criticals and bestial failures can be bad for you, using willpower to re-roll your regular dice can help stave off disaster. Dungeon in a Box: Caravan of Peril Review, Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition Review. Every time you call uppon the blood to assist you in some way, be it using a discipline, heal yourself, boost an attribute, you make a rouse check.
