Cults of the Blood Gods (Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition) by Onyx Path Publishing Book Review 16, Mar


I am a stalwart defender of Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition. I believe it is the best edition to come out since 1st Edition and the original Chicago Chronicles. However, I'm going to be honest in that I also feel like it is best done by Onyx Path Publishing. The two best things to come out of 5th Edition so far have been the LA by Night web series and Chicago by Night as well as its supplements (The Chicago Folios, Let the Streets Run Red). Well, only the latter is a game supplement and by OPP. OPP has already an established reputation for making awesome supplements for the World of Darkness (Beckett's Jyhad Diary is my all time favorite V:TM supplement period) and just "gets" the material. But does their latest supplement continue this trend? I'd say yes. It comes with a few minor caveats but it is definitely top tier material for the setting.

Vampire: The Masquerade: Winter's Teeth (Winter's Teeth #1) by Tim Seeley, Blake Howard, and Tini Howard Book Review 10, Mar


VAMPIRE: THE MASQUERADE: WINTER'S TEETH VOLUME 1 is a collection of the first five issues of the Vampire: The Masquerade comic book by Tim Seeley, Blake Howard, and Tini Howard. It is set in the World of Darkness universe, popularized by the Vampire: The Masquerade tabletop and video games. I've been reading every issue as they come out and think it would be inappropriate not to cover the graphic novel that was recently released. So, how is it?

Vampire: The Masquerade Companion (Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition) by White Wolf Book Review 01, Mar


The VAMPIRE: THE MASQUERADE COMPANION is a relatively short sixty-five page book that was released for free by the folks at White Wolf and Paradox Interactive. I have the suspicion it was what was written up for the Vampire: The Masquerade Players Guide that was going to be released by Modiphius Entertainment but was delayed until the point of cancellation. If so, I think it was very nice of them to release it. Certainly, it helps keep the updates flowing into the setting and helps motivate the fan base into continuing to play the game.
