Vampire: the Masquerade New Blood

Modiphius Entertainment has helped push Vampire: the Masquerade back to prominence in tabletop gaming, and now they’re looking to attract new and lapsed players with a “starter pack” PDF. The gaming publisher has released the “New Blood” starter back bundle designed with new and returning players and Storytellers in mind, which includes a story that teaches gamers how to play the Fifth Edition version of the game along.

The story kicks off in traditional fashion with a group of newly-Embraced vampires, and is described as follows:

You wake up in a meat locker with vague memories of what happened last night. Something about you is not quite right. As you come to your senses, you realize that you have a hunger you’d never experienced before. Gradually, you’ll come to realize that you’ve been Embraced into the world of Kindred – or vampires to those not in the know.

In addition to the story, the pack includes a rules reference guide, printable enemy and victim cards, 7 player characters, and a relationship map which is used in fifth edition to establish the characters’ connections to each other and NPCs both before and during play. The pack comes with a mature content warning, noting that it “contains graphic and written content of a mature nature, including violence, sexual themes, and strong language. Reader discretion is advised.”
