Dust to Dust - Episode 95

Bob and Nate review the 2011 book, Dust to Dust. This is the first story material released for the Vampire: the Masquerade 20th Anniversary edition. This book is a soft sequel to first chronicle, Forged in Steel and the original Ashes to Ashes story from First Edition. It is also (as far as we can tell) the only Vampire: the Masquerade book which uses the Storytelling adventure System. It has a number of new characters, as well as updates to classic characters and settings from the original run of Vampire: the Masquerade.

This book was written by Matthew McFarland and developed by Eddy Webb for White Wolf Studios and released on 11/11/11.

Dust to Dust
Written by: Matthew McFarland
November 11th, 2011

When the ashes cool, all that remains is dust...

Gary, Indiana (cWOD) is a dying city. Its population has halved itself in 40 years, many of its buildings are burned husks, its citizens are disenfranchised and out of work, and even its predators have fled. Of the many Kindred who once hunted this small Midwestern city, only a handful remains. Modius, the Prince of Gary, continues his long rivalry with the Anarch known as Juggler. But their struggles are becoming increasingly irrelevant. If things continue, Gary won't have enough mortals to sustain even a small number of vampires.

The Kindred aren't willing to let the city crumble just yet, though. Juggler and Modius have hit upon a scheme to revitalize the city's importance for Kindred, though each wishes to claim the credit (and the rewards) for this renewal. While they snipe and strike at one another like two starving wolves fighting for the last scrap of meat on the carcass, the Giovanni Maria DiMatto seizes her chance.

Vampire: the Masquerade 20th Anniversary Edition - Episode 94

Wow, that is a really long title to a book, if you think about it. I know why we all call it V20 now! Anyways, this podcast is a tiny bit non-traditional. We definitely review V20, but more than that, we talk about how V20 has impacted us as gamers and podcasters. It’s no secret that V20 has been a major factor in revitalizing this game for many old school players. I don’t suspect anyone will be shocked about what we think of this game and book. This book was written by Justin Achilli, Rose Bailey, Matthew McFarland, and Eddy Webb for White Wolf publishing and released October 21st, 2011.

We’ve been doing this podcast for 2 years, this month. We are constantly overwhelmed by how much support we’ve gotten from the community and how much positivity we’ve received from you, the listener. We have a ton of things planned for the last quarter of 2018 and early 2019. We do have plans to expand our online store and provide some cool and unique extras to our listeners. Thank you to everyone that supports us here, on our Patreon and everywhere else. You may not agree with us all the time, but our hope is that you do find us engaging and entertaining!

Here’s to 25 more years of Vampire: the Masquerade and a ton more fun, gaming and the World of Darkness!

Vampire left on not just the gaming world but on modern vampire-related pop culture can be seen and felt at virtually every turn and in every medium today.

Vampire: The Masquerade - 20th Anniversary Edition 
brings the entire Classic World of Darkness experience full circle and will serve as the perfect anniversary milestone to celebrate two decades of gaming after dark. This is the original 
Masquerade in all its glory, and our way of saying thank you and welcome home.
