Renegade Game Studios has teamed up with Paradox Interactive to bring the Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition Core Rulebook to life on the Roll20 platform. What does that mean? Well, it brings all of the assets, lore, rules, and more to life in a digital virtual tabletop experience that lets fans all over the world team up to tackle the World of Darkness.
The Roll20 release of Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition Core Rulebook will feature all book assets, lore, and information fully integrated for the VTT, ready for you and your coterie to sink their fangs into on day one. This includes loresheets, player token packs, in-world lore articles that can be dragged into your game, and any storyteller characters, Predator Types, Advantages, and Disciplines with in-app drag-and-drop support.
In the Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition RPG tabletop game, 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, but it is vital that you keep up the Masquerade: no humans can ever know that vampires actually exist.
The story you weave with the help of other players and your Storyteller will challenge your character to navigate through their unlife – walking the razor’s edge between your lost humanity and the dangers of the Hunger that brings out the monster inside you, all while contending with political and social encounters and avoiding threats that are out to destroy you. This is the original and ultimate roleplaying game of personal and political horror.
“Our team is very excited to bring Vampire: The Masquerade to Roll20. With the Roll20 release of the Core Rulebook, as well as the Anarch and Camarilla Sourcebooks, players will finally be able to integrate the rules and lore of one of our site’s most-played systems directly into the Roll20 VTT. At launch, players can enjoy features such as lore handouts, tokens and art packs for players and storyteller characters, and character sheet integration including drag-and-drop for storyteller characters, Predator Types, Advantages, and Disciplines. Experienced Storytellers will be delighted to search for what they need and share it more efficiently, while new players will be able to dive into the World of Darkness in a way that’s approachable and easy to navigate. Get ready to sink your fangs into the fifth edition of Vampire: The Masquerade!” explains Emily Floyd, Director Licensing at Roll20.
“We are thrilled to be able to bring Vampire: The Masquerade to such a well loved digital platform with Roll20. Allowing players to immerse themselves in the World of Darkness along with their friends from all over the world is very important to us. Roll20 brings a breath of fresh and modern air into connecting in a virtual space giving players the tools to run and enjoy their games in the smoothest possible way. We are so thankful for their expertise and can’t wait to share this new way of experiencing Vampire: The Masquerade with the whole Vamily,” shares Sara Erickson, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Renegade Game Studios.
You can pre-order the Camarilla sourcebook, the Core Rulebook, and the Anarch sourcebook, with all three ready to launch on June 16th on Roll20.net. We can expect an all new Sabbat: The Black Hand sourcebook and the Storyteller’s Toolkit later this fall.
If you were inclined to see more on these, join Trivia Fox, Renegade Game Studios’ Associate RPG Producer, for a digital Roll20 workshop at 5:00 PM PST on June 11th during the digital convention, Elysium: A Weekend of Darkness.
