Succubus Club: Dead Man's Party
Written by: Richard Chillot and Christopher Kobar
June 2nd, 2003

Everyones Invited
The Damned are solitary monsters, contriving elaborate social situations for themselves to deny the prominence of the Beast. Parties and other social affairs from graceful soirees to brutal Sabbat ritae are the foundation of undead reputation. Hosting such affairs, whether as a pack priest or as a nascent prince, can be as arduous a process as claiming a domain.

The Beautiful and Damned
For players looking to enhance their characters status or reputation, Succubus Club: Dead Mans Party is an invaluable resource. Covering all the stages of planning a social affair from concept to implementation (and aftermath), this title is invaluable for players who want to participate in the grandiose social structure of the undead. This book contains information useful to Kindred of all clans, sects, ages and generations.

Nights of Prophecy - Episode 54

In this episode, we dive into some of the canonical metaplot of Vampire: the Masquerade. This book serves as an update to the constantly changing World of Darkness. If this came out ten years later, we'd call it a 'patch'.

Clanbook: Ravnos - Episode 42

In this episode, we review and discuss the Ravnos Clanbook. Known for being wandering vagabonds and hucksters, the Ravnos are charlatans who gleefully practice their arts of deception and theft. 

This review marks the final Clanbook review of Second Edition. You may have noticed, this clanbook actually came out before Clanbook: Giovanni. That's because I messed up the order. These things happen. 

Thanks to all of you who have listened to us over the past year! We've had a great time doing this podcast, and all the kind words and support have been awesome and overwhelming! Here's to another great year of content, and to all the new White Wolf material coming down the pipeline! You folks are a wonderful community!

Clanbook: Ravnos
Written by: Christopher Walters
Feb. 20th, 1997

Gypsies, vagabonds and charlatans, the cunning vampires of Clan Ravnos roam the night as they indulge in the most dangerous of games — lying to the liars, tricking the tricksters, and gleefully receiving curses from the Damned. From Bel Air to Bombay, from Shanghai to Sarajevo, these nomadic vampires wander where their citybound Kindred fear to tread. Now learn of the Ravnos' secret arts, and the centuries of hate that can lie behind a jester's smile.

    From White Wolf Wiki:
    Chicago by Night Second Edition is a revision of Chicago by Night, the sourcebook about the city of Chicago in the Classic World of Darkness.

    This Second Edition incorporates changes both to the game rules from Vampire: The Masquerade Second Edition and to the Chicago setting from the Werewolf crossover story Under a Blood Red Moon. With the death of Lodin in that story, the office of Prince of Chicago is now available to the most qualified — or most cutthroat — candidate. Now, the players' coterie might find themselves in a position to play kingmaker, or even to take the princedom for one of their own.

    The Succubus Club, Ashes to Ashes, Chicago by Night

    In our third episode, we step up the podcast a notch and review three releases from 1991: The Succubus Club, Ashes to Ashes and Chicago by Night first edition. The three of these releases are bound together in story and setting, and it seemed appropriate to review them together for additional reasons that are made clear in the production. These books make up a large part of the "Forged in Steel" chronicle.



    Succubus Club - 1991
    Written by: Andrew Greenberg, Graeme Davis, Bill Bridges, Lisa Stevens, Nigel Findley, Steve Crow
    "The Succubus club is a Sourcebook detailing the most notorious nightspots in the Chicago Rack. This book includes not only a complete description of this infamous club, but six complete one-chapter stories, each of them set within its confines. Cainites know of it as a huge and extravagant dance club where mortal vessels are easily obtained, friends and enemies meet and intrigues and plots are hatched. only a few know of what ancient secrets it contains. The Succubus may well become the central meeting spot for your characters, for so many stories start and end there. It is the nexus of this dark city. It is the place of dreams, the place of nightmares."



    Ashes to Ashes - 1991
    Written by: Stewart Wieck
    When the Fire Burns Low Only the Ashes Remain...
    "Ashes to Ashes is a story supplement designed for use with Vampire, and it continues the story begun in Vampire: Baptism by Fire. It includes all the characters and information you need to tell a complete four chapter story. This book also presents an Advanced Storytelling - the Villain's Flashback - to accentuate the theme and mood of the story."






    Chicago by Night first edition - 1991
    White Wolf Publishing
    Chicago by Night includes:
    Descriptions of most of the Kindred inhabitants of Chicago - 70 powerful characters in all.
    A chapter on the "real" history of Chicago.
    Detailed maps of the city and a complete geography chapter.
    A number of innovative "character interaction" charts used to define the relationships between these immortals.
