The Camarilla, The Anarch - Episode 100

It has been a few weeks since our last podcast. Since that time, White Wolf released their first two sourcebooks for the new 5th edition of Vampire: the Masquerade. What was first excitement from the community quickly turned into overwhelming outrage. Much of the anger was due to the inclusion of a chapter relating to kindred involvement in an ongoing conflict in Chechnya.
Needless to say, there has been massive backlash because of this chapter. Over the course of our two week vacation, the books have been released, pulled from the market, White Wolf’s structure as a company has changed, and the future of the World of Darkness property is in question in the eyes of many fans.
Never the less, we’ve been asked by many in the community to review the material as they were originally presented. Also, many have asked us to speak on the situation with White Wolf as a whole. Please remember, we are commentators and not contributors. We know as much (and maybe less than many) as any other fans when it comes to industry specific stuff. In other words, a lot of what we present is simply speculation.

A word of caution: What we present is our opinion - and it’s an opinion that some people may be put off by. We offer no apologies for how we feel about the exploitation of human suffering for profit. We believe strongly in the sentiment of people over games. If that turns you off from our podcast, so be it. Fun should never be had from the real world misery, suffering, and death of others. We welcome all civil discourse about this topic but will not tolerate disrespect from any party. We’re all in this together.

As a vampire you suffer the pangs of the Hunger, the relentless and terrible thirst for human blood. If you refuse to deal with it, it will overcome your mind and drive you to terrible acts to slake it. You walk this razor's edge every night.

Dark designs, bitter enemies, and strange allies await you in this World of Darkness.

The global blood opera of the Camarilla story continues. As the eldest vampires begin to vanish, the Ivory Tower starts to crack under the weight of its own decay. Once it was the mightiest faction of vampires in the world, a stronghold of immortality. Now it retreats into a maze of neo-feudal conspiracies to protect itself against the deadly threat of the Second Inquisition, struggling to enforce the Masquerade in the face of modern technology. Featuring insights and perspectives on unlife in the Camarilla from Mark Rein-Hagen and Matthew Dawkins.

As a vampire you suffer the pangs of the Hunger, the relentless and terrible thirst for human blood. If you refuse to deal with it, it will overcome your mind and drive you to terrible acts to slake it. You walk this razor's edge every night.

Dark designs, bitter enemies, and strange allies await you in this World of Darkness.

Welcome to a blood thriller on the streets of the modern nights. For centuries the Anarch Movement enjoyed an uneasy truce with the Camarilla, but no longer. Now, the Unbound refuse to bow to the sickening hypocrisy and tyranny of their former allies. Claiming the nighttime streets as their own, the Anarchs seek independence from the despotic Elders, by any means necessary. Only the toughest and smartest of self-made vampires will survive. Featuring all-new essays on nocturnal survival and politics from Juhana Pettersson.
