Vampire: The Masquerade 20th Anniversary Edition now available at DriveThruRPG

Vampire: The Masquerade 20th Anniversary Edition I was actually a bit surprised when I noticed that the 20th Anniversary Edition of Vampire: The Masquerade was already available for purchase on DriveThruRPG. I haven’t actually expected it before late October. There will also be a print-on-demand version over DriveThruRPG later this year, so if you want to get this, you may want to wait a bit longer.

So what’s the big deal with V20? It contains all thirteen Clans, Clan variants and bloodlines from the oWoD, the rules have been slightly updated and there are rules for characters from Neonate to Methusaleh. All disciplines from level one through nine are included and the setting has been updated to reflect the modern times.

While I own all the nWoD core books, I have to admit I still prefer the oWoD setting. Back in the day I’ve played everything from a Caitiff vampire to a Stargazer Philodox in Werewolf. Both Vampire: The Masquerade and Werewolf: The Apocalypse are games I would love to play (or run) again. As far as I know White Wolf plans to rerelease Mage and Werewolf in anniversary editions, too, so perhaps I might get my chance.

The price of $29.99 is a bit above what I usually pay for PDFs and I wouldn’t mind getting the POD version, so I might wait until the holiday season before getting my copy, but from what I’ve read so far the 529-paged PDF is worth every penny.

The Genesys of a new game!

Miss me? Well that’s a deafening silence… I guess the interwebz is a harsh mistress. Before I plunge into the post at hand let me take a moment to tell the two readers left who remember me what I’ve been up to. My last post was almost three weeks ago about the Speak Out with my Geek Out. Since then I have been embroiled in a big project at work. It’s been some long weeks, some over seven days long. Mind you I am not complaining, I have a thriving job in this economy, and I have the privilege of working with educators and students, which I love. Still all this hard work has meant I have had little time to post here in the blog. The brunt of the work is done, there will be a lot to do in the coming months, but I hope to get back to the extracurricular activities I love… and posting, back to posting too!

Now, on to the post…

This one has been a long time coming. I met one of the creators of the Genesys Universal Roleplaying Game on the plane ride to Gen Con. It was a lively conversation about the games we love, how we played and the effect games have had in our lives. He told me about this game he was creating with his friends. When we stepped out of the plane I got to meet some of the other creators, we exchanged numbers and planned to see each other again during the con. But you know what Robert Burns said about plans…
