Cults of the Blood Gods (Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition)
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
by Marc T. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/09/2021 05:53:26

By far my favourite Onyx Path book. Introducing the Cults and Cultists of Kindred kind, and of course Clan Hecata, in all their glory. For those seeking context on beliefs, (sometimes blood) rituals, the structure, and favoured new powers of the following factions, please consider this book:

  • Ashfinders (Duskborn/Thin-Blood).
  • The Bahari.
  • Church of Caine.
  • Church of Set.
  • Shalimites.
  • Mithrists.
  • Nephilims.

Cults of the Blood Gods break down each, showing just how they fit and operate in the modern nights. It supplies you with additional examples and the tools to create your own, drawing from elements both living and dead.

As for the Cult, -I mean.. Clan of Death:

Initially I wasn't entirely sure how the Hecata could or even would work given the clan/bloodline’s history. Reading over the material, I was pleasantly surprised. They can and do cooperate well as V5’s big “happy” family.

So much so, that I can honestly say that the Hecata has become my favourite.

They feel unlike any other clan in V5. The approach to the various faces featured in the family gives a unique outlook and perspective for the members that make the whole. It adds depth and gives credence to the familial feel. You can hate one-another, hurt one-another, have done terrible things to one-another... but at the end of the day you’re still family. Something to keep in mind when you’re walking the line between sects, and have plenty of enemies who might want to see you fall.

--

In addition to all this, Chapter 8 introduces Styx and Bones. The first foray into Munich, bringing back some old names and faces, providing adventurous stories to tackle, antagonists, and ready-made characters.

Onyx Path has really put love and care into the material. You can see, feel, and experience it. At least, I hope you do. Please give this book a try, because I truly love it and revisit it often. There’s always more to find and uncover between these pages.

Chicago By Night (Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition)
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing

A welcome return to Chicago. The city provides the perfect backdrop for 'The Sacrifice' and the player influenced outcome to the Lasomba's defection from the Sabbat. This setting and its characters becomes far deeper bringing with it, the many supplements which followed; Chicago Folios and Let the Street Run Red. Oblivion (Obtenebration) returns to Vampire and does so, in style. Truly a beautiful book, its quite the love letter to the series and the best starting point for Vampire: The Masquerade V5.

Power Prey opened and introduced my 4 players to Chicago and Vampire: The Masquerade 5th edition. They were swept up in the narrative causing chaos in their wake. So in all, a great beginning! New SPCs, 4 strong stories and locations, plenty of antagonist stats, loresheets and rituals, lore and an additional Predator Type. What more could you wish for??

The Chicago Folios (Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition)
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing

Fantastic supplement for Chicago by Night. Its given a great many plot hooks to interweave among my Chicago by Night chronicle. The Anarch, Camarilla, Independent and Mortal stories give players a chance to experiene and explore far more content with a whole new list of cast characters, and reward them with fresh loresheets and bloody (great) Rituals.
