In this episode, Nate and Bob take a deep dive into the upcoming 5th Edition of the classic Vampire: the Masquerade. In an unprecedented achievement, White Wolf has returned to their Classic World of Darkness and Utility Muffin Labs has gotten early access to review and discuss this reintroduction to an old friend.
Nate and Bob talk about a great deal of the new history, rules, character creation and systems of V5, and still hardly scratch the surface of what's included in this beautiful, modern game of personal and political horror.

Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition
Developed, designed, and written by Kenneth Hite, Mark Rein-Hagen, Matthew Dawkins, Juhanna Peterson, Martin Ericsson, Karim Muammar, Karl Bergström, Jennifer Smith, Jason Andrew, and Jason Carl
"The classic that changed roleplaying games forever returns! This fifth edition features a streamlined and modern rules design, beautiful new full-color art, and a rich story experience for players. Powered by the innovative Hunger cycle, the game also includes rules for creating system supported character coteries, Loresheets to directly involve players with their favorite parts of the setting and The Memoriam, a new way to bring the character's detailed backgrounds and expand on them in-session.
V5 is a return to Vampire's original vision, moving boldly into the 21st century. While the rules have been redesigned, this new edition honors the deep story of the original, advancing the metaplot from where it left off and detailing exactly what has happened in the world of the Kindred up until tonight. The terror of the Second Inquisition, the conspiracies behind the Gehenna War, and the rekindling of the War of Ages: these are the building blocks of the modern V5 chronicle. "
