Anarchs Unbound - Episode 102

Ever the popular theme for Vampire: the Masquerade, we review the V20 update to the Anarch Movement with Anarchs Unbound. This book takes a look at how the Anarchs have evolved and exploded (Pun) in the modern age with the growth of technology, political awareness and that one important question, “Why do you obey?”

This book was written by Justin Achilli, Alan Alexander, Jason Andrew, Sarah Roark, and Matthew Sanderson for Onyx Path Publishing and released June 23, 2014

Anarchs Unbound
Written by: Justin Achilli, Alan Alexander, Jason Andrew, 
Sarah Roark, and Matthew Sanderson
June 23rd, 2014

Tear down the tyrants!

Paint the streets with the blood of Princes and Archbishops!

With Anarch domains increasing their hold over new territories every night, the Kindred can no longer afford to consider Movement an unruly mob of wayward childer. As the doomed tactics of the past have made way for a sleeker, wiser Anarch Movement, the nights are numbered for outmoded elder vampires and their weak-blooded lackeys.

Anarchs Unbound takes the bomb-tossing, rabble-rousing revolutionaries of the Anarch Movement and updates them as one of the most energetic and fast-growing sects, gaining ground as they use technologies and mortal agents to advance their agendas in the modern nights. With the Movement revitalized, the time is right to tell the stories of the Anarchs as they topple the old regimes and seize praxis with a promise of egalitarian rule and an end to the oppression of centuries best forgotten.

The Hunters Hunted II
Written by: Justin Achilli, Jason Andrew, Martin Henley, Matthew McFarland, and Matthew Sanderson
July 17th, 2013

Most mortals turn away from the darkness that preys upon them, going about their lives in despair of the Damned and the evils they visit upon the world. But a precious few wage a personal war to shine light on those shadows and diminish them, like solitary candles shining in the night. The path of the hunter is lonely and fraught with danger, at once beset by the monsters they hunt and looked upon with suspicion by their fellow mortals they thanklessly seek to protect.


Children of the Revolution - Episode 98

In this episode, we run a little shorter than usual. However, it’s more due to the nature of this book and less about our opinion. This book is very similar to books like Children of the Night and Children of the Inquisition in that it is a character-specific sourcebook. Bob and Nate review it as a modern version of the style and talk about some of the characters they find most interesting.
This book was written by, Justin Achilli, C.A. Suleiman, Eddy Webb, Joseph Carriker, and Christopher Kobar for Onyx Path Publishing and released October 26, 2012.

Children of the Revolution
Written by: Justin Achilli, C.A. Suleiman, Eddy Webb, Joseph Carriker, and Christopher Kobar
October 26th, 2012
Children of the Revolution
 tells the stories of noteworthy or notorious Kindred of the modern nights whose Embraces came in times of unrest, rebellion, or open revolution. The circumstances of these revolutions might have been mortal or undead, martial or cultural. These Kindred joined the ranks of the Damned under tides of war or cultural upheaval, and their blood bears the mark of change from one paradigm into another. Sometimes they are the agents of change. For others, their revolution drags them in its wake.

The world of the Kindred is always fraught with blood and danger, and Embrace amid the fires of revolution only heightens that fact. Here are Kindred who have risen to guide the Black Hand, who have led the armies of Alexander, who have earned the Lextalionis, and who have been reborn in the fires of the Arab Spring. Their histories have been forged, but their futures remain to be determined by your troupe.

V20 Companion
Written by: Justin Achilli, Eddy Webb
August 23rd, 2012


Can a Prince command a Priscus?
How have the Anarchs fared during the modern nights?
Can the Harpies declare a boon null?

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!

Vampire: The Masquerade
 exploded into hobby games in 1991 and inspired a generation of fans of which the game industry had never seen before or since. The cultural significance 
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.


Beckett's Jyhad Diary - Episode 59

This review is NOT a deep dive and it is SPOILER FREE! If you haven't read this book, you should be just fine to listen to the review!
Well, it's time to step up our game! In this very special episode, we review the latest release by White Wolf and Onyx Path Publishing - Beckett's Jyhad Diary. It's been many years since we've had an update to the Classic World of Darkness. In fact, this is the first advance of metaplot since the conclusion of V:tM in 2004. 

This book is massive, colorful and updates a TON of stuff! This book, in many ways, is the bridge that will cover the gap between V20 and V5. 


Psst. Did you know that we reward some of our Patreon backers with an online vampire game called, Curse of Caine? Even if you don't want to play (which deeply saddens me), there are links to the server so you can hang out, read some V:tM role-play, and make new friends!

Beckett's Jyhad Diary
Written by: Alan Alexander, Matthew Dawkins, Steffie de Vaan, Joshua Doetsch, Renee Knipe, Matthew McFarland, Neall Raemonn Price, Myranda Sarro, Malcolm Sheppard, and Monica Valentinelli
Jan. 10th, 2018

It’s ever been a loaded word among vampires. Jyhad is in force everywhere from lofty, perfumed Elysium to cloying, smoke-filled blood feasts. Jyhad’s the eternal game played by elders, Methuselahs, and worse — it’s the agenda of beings so utterly beyond humanity, one such as yourself could scarcely understand its movements.
Luckily for you, you’ve picked up a copy of my diary. With my help you may just take a step on the first rung of understanding. Information worth having is information you must earn through blood, and oh, how I’ve bled for what’s contained within these pages.
— Beckett

Beckett's Jyhad Diary serves as the definitive book of setting and plot for Vampire: The Masquerade, containing 30 chapters spanning different geographical regions, encountering vampires of every clan, profiling obscure and profound segments of the mythology, and providing countless story hooks on every page.
