Mens Sana In Corpore Sano
By Secrets of the Masquerade

Follow this Coterie’s unique situation as they are struck both with incredible luck and incredible misfortune and find out the source of these bizarre events that have been plaguing their nightly lives for far too long. 

This short supplement contains an easy to adapt one shot story to any city to introduce new players to Vampire the Masquerade, alongside premade characters and a descriptive of the situation they are involved in. The scope is small and oppresive to allow for a perfect “behind closed doors” personal horror tale. Most elements were left vague to give room for the storyteller to personalize and adapt the story to their specific needs.

Nerd Words Episode 139

NW 139.jpg

Hello all! We’re back with another stunningly adequate podcast! This episode, we try to tickle multiple fancies with a double shot of reviews. In hopes to lure all you Vampire: the Masquerade fans, we start with a Storyteller’s Vault review. We take a look at New Blood; a Dark Ages supplemental scenario by Jacob Klünder. We do this review FIRST, that way you don’t have to sift through part two. Part two is a spoiler-rich review of Avengers: Endgame (if the cover photo didn’t give it away.)

Avengers: Endgame review starts at 19:40 into the cast. Be aware of spoilers.

New Blood is a scenario that can be used as a one-off, a chronicle starter or inserted into an ongoing chronicle. A rumor states that a Tremere and a mortal alchemist have been able to create alchemical blood that will nourish a Cainite. Now, delegations from around the world arrive in Languedoc to join an auction to buy the secret of this new blood.

Inside, you’ll find.

  • A scenario that can be played as neonates, experienced characters or even elders.

  • A look at the troubles faced by Cainites when traveling in the Dark Medieval World.

  • A large gallery of Storyteller Characters to use in this scenario and beyond.

Madison By Night
By Bill Bodden

"It is said that Madison is 94 square miles surrounded by reality. Honestly, though, the reality out there isn't much better than what we have in here."

  -- Chopper, Nosferatu and Keeper of Information for the Baron of Madison

Part supply depot, part library, and part fast-food joint, Madison is a one-stop shop for Anarchs looking to take over a piece of ground to call their own.

With a small permanent population of Kindred, Madison is easy to overlook but for one thing: they supply or directly support over half of the Anarch insurgencies on the North American continent.

Madison by Night includes:

  • A brief history of Madison, Wisconsin, from the early days of European immigrants and the arrival of the first Kindred to the Anarch take-over in the 1960s.

  • A listing of some of the more important Kindred-related sites in the Madison area

  • An overview of the Anarch Kindred who currently call Madison home.

Note: There were some issues on the back end of the recording. If you find some parts of the podcast slightly disjointed, I am aware of those audio issues. I did my best to edit the podcast into a cohesive episode. Thanks for your patience if it’s a little jarring in some spots.
