The Gamer interviewed the President and CEO of Modiphius about Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2.

Modiphius Entertainment is the company that is responsible for publishing the latest edition of the Vampire: The Masquerade tabletop game. TheGamer had a chance to talk to Modiphius President and CEO Chris Birch during the recent PDXCON event in Berlin, where he discussed the future of Vampire: The Masquerade. 

Chris Burch: The first key product is The Fall of London Chronicle. Time has jumped forward a bit and the Second Inquisition is cracking down on vampires and they have the technology and secret information they need to actually find and deal with vampires. So, London is a big flashpoint and they really are scraping vampires out of London. There is a huge hit going on. You basically wake up out of torpor and all hell is breaking loose, there is like… gunfire, madness, and Mithras is there with one last job for you before you leave. So it’s a great way for old players to get updated on the setting and what’s going on because you start as if you are from the past and you get to find out what’s been going on. The new players get to do all the cool stuff that vampires should do, there is a bit of action and drama, there is a big high-class party in The Shard in London.

We've got a Player's Guide and it's all about the clans and has lots of new information, but it's a bit of a bridge as well because in this edition of Vampire you are the monster that's trying to cling on to your humanity through a loved one. Whereas in previous editions of Vampire you were more of a human whose got this monstrous feelings and tendencies inside you and you're trying to fight the monster within you. So, what we've done is try to show people who are like "But that's how I like playing Vampire and that's the mental state I like to use" and that's fine, that's how you can do it with V5, so here's what you need to know about rules and what might need to be tweaked if you want to play it that way. It really is trying to embrace more of the community and give them a doorway into V5.


Thanks Farflame!
