This is a pre-order, books will ship in mid 2023.
Mind’s Eye Theatre Vampire: The Masquerade - War of Ages is a Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition ("V5") live-action setting book that includes — for the first time — a focus on collaborative live-action roleplaying ("Larp"), and features the writing of Finnish novelist and game designer Juhana Pettersson of the award-nominated Vampire: The Masquerade Nordic-style Larp “End of the Line,” as well as the Vampire: The Masquerade Anarch V5 book.
MET Vampire - War of Ages will include practical sections that highlight the “Nordic” styles of gaming and that delve into how to bring the Larp experience to one’s game through both in-person and online play, and will include suggestions and guidelines for Storytellers and players alike.
MET Vampire - War of Ages offers insight into the mysterious Ashirra, guidance for using the Sabbat as antagonists in Larp, a deep dive into the authority given by holding Sect Positions such as Prince or Baron, and more! While this book is intended primarily to support Mind’s Eye Theatre - Vampire: The Masquerade Larp chronicles, it is also a valuable asset to anyone interested in elevating their Vampire roleplaying experience in any kind of chronicle.
In a world where we are increasingly interconnected online but not always able to gather in-person, traditional Larp and online roleplaying are seeing a lot of overlap in their approaches to playing Vampire: The Masquerade, and we think that they have a lot to learn from one another! MET Vampire - War of Ages will include a case study on the highly successful Vampire: The Masquerade virtual game Seattle By Night as well as sections on how to run and manage a successful online roleplaying community, user friendly interfaces, user inclusion, staff presence and behavior, server safety, Storyteller cohesion, and adapting mechanics.
MET Vampire - War of Ages provides inspiration, guidance, and tools for developing immersive V5 games with a focus on setting and fiction. The book is written using various "in-game" voices and supplemented by “designer voice" sections that concretely lay out how to utilize the information and ideas presented. The book will also include amazing new art work from Kamila "Louve" Maślak (BNS Vampire: The Masquerade Volume 2 and BNS Changeling: The Dreaming), Krzysztof Bieniawski (Vampire: The Masquerade V5 Sabbat), Kera Now (BNS Vampire: The Masquerade Volume 2), Mars Howard (BNS Vampire: The Masquerade Volume 2), and introducing James Johnson!
