What is Vampire: the Masquerade?
Vampire: The Masquerade is the original roleplaying game of personal and political horror. You are a vampire, struggling for survival, supremacy, and your own fading humanity - afraid of what you are capable of, and fearful of the inhuman conspiracies that surround you.
As a vampire, you suffer the pangs of the Hunger, the relentless and terrible thirst for human blood. If you refuse to deal with it, it will overcome your mind and drive you to terrible acts to slake it. You walk this razor's edge every night.
Vampire: The Masquerade is a tabletop RPG both intense and intimate to play, for it is a game of consequences. Delicious, dreadful consequences! In VTM, you play as supernatural beings both powerful and damaged, inextricably tied to the mortal world while cursed to never truly be part of it. Sessions play out like a high-budget TV drama crossed with a Greek tragedy, all boiled down to some basic dice-rolling and conversation.
