Constantinople by Night
Written by Philippe Boulle, Joshua Mosqueira-Asheim,
and Lucien Soulban
1996

The greatest city of the medieval world, domed Constantinople is a lodestone for the vampires of the Dark Ages. Immerse yourself in intrigues ancient and contemporary as you traverse the labyrinthine streets and torchlit bazaars of Byzantium's wonderous capital. But beware: yours is not the only hunger in the East that demands to be sated.


Book of Storyteller Secrets - Episode 112

In this episode, Bob and Nate take a look at the Book of Storyteller Secrets for Vampire: the Dark Ages. This sourcebook collects information for storytellers left out of the corebook such as an atlas of Dark Medieval Europe, a plethora of Storytelling tips for running your own Dark Ages game, and rules for ghouls, antagonists, magical weapons and mythical beasts found in Dark Medieval Europe.

This book was written by Wade Racine, Matt Burke, and J.D. Wiker for White Wolf Game Studio and published July of 1996.

Vampire: The Dark Ages - Episode 111

Finally, we’re back at it with our very first Dark Ages review. I guess you could call it our second season. No? Regardless, this is a new chapter for our podcast and we’re glad to bring you all along with us.
In this episode, we review the corebook for White Wolf’s Dark Ages line. Vampire: the Dark Ages takes place in the dark, medieval World of Darkness in 1197. Dark Ages represents the first of three historical game lines including Werewolf: The Wild West (1997), and Mage: The Sorcerer's Crusade (1998).

This book was published in March of 1996 by White Wolf Studios. It was designed by Jennifer Hartshorn, Ethan Skemp, Mark Rein•Hagen, and Kevin Hassall.

This book is currently out of print.

Vampire: the Dark Ages
Written by: Various
March, 1996

A Storytelling Game of Gothic Horror
This, my childer, is the Long Night. The Age of Learning is toppled and forgotten. The Age of the Empire drowned in its own bile. This is an Age of Darkness. Look there, my childer, upon the lightless wild places, where no law exists save that of tooth and talon. Behold the human cities as well, where we may be as lords when the sun gutters and dies.

Beware, my childer, of thy eternal enemies: of the savage ones, the skinchangers, who hunt as wolves. Of the knights of fire and sword, the witch-slayers. Of the burning scions of the Pit itself. But above all, my childer, beware one another, for we shall always be our own direst foes.
This, my childer, is the Long Night. It is thine.


Clanbook: Lasombra - Episode 39

In this episode, we explore the clan with a giant "L", Clan Lasombra. Step into the shadows with us as we dig into the feared leaders of the Sabbat, exploring their origins, both within the context of the game, and our experiences with them.

March 1st, 1996
From their webs of shadows the Lasombra guide the destiny of the dread Sabbat. Unseen even by mirrors, these lords of darkness glide through the night they rule, orchestrating the rise and fall of Kindred and kine alike. From the Sahara Desert to the Spanish Main, from the monasteries of Seville to the mean streets of New York City, no other clan so embodies what it means to be a vampire.


Prince's Primer/ Blood and Fire - Episode 38

Two books for the price of one?!? You bet your sweet ass. In what may be becoming a bit of a pattern, we consolidate two books that might not stand on their feet for a single review. Anyways, we prove tonight that not all of our reviews are hopeless pandering to a game we love!

I mean, 18 dollars? Really? Like, how do you justify such an expense book that is this hard to read? Somehow, we ended up with 4 damn copies of this book. Shouldn't you get one, too?
