    I'm looking at starting a Vampire the Masquerade RPG. This would be an actual role playing game with character sheets and dice, not just free-form forum RP. Smut would be welcome and could certainly be a part of the RP, but wouldn't be the main focus. It would be a group RP, of course, but players would be free/encouraged to interact and RP in side scenes with each other.


    If you're familiar with the WOD/VtM already, that's awesome. If not, but you're willing to at least read the free information posted around the web, that's fine too. Complete newbies who know nothing about the world are welcome, but may have better luck with characters who are new to the world. That's not a problem because there are plenty of reasons why a character may not know a lot.

    Once we put together the players group (I have several interested already) we can decide on the specific setting. For those who don't know the world is fairly dark, and the world is one in which corruption is the norm. Role play tends to be socio-political with a heavy emphasis on machiavellian machinations. If you'd like to read an overview, you can find one on https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vampire:_The_Masquerade or https://whitewolf.fandom.com/wiki/Vampire:_The_Masquerade.

    I'm very new to VtM but I would be very interested if you do not mind a noob like myself. :)

    Newbies are totally welcome, And if you're familiar with VtM already, that may put you ahead of others. (So far, most people who are joining are experienced with the system, but I figure we may have others.)

    We've got a decent group, but I'm hoping for a few more. We particularly need males, by the way, in case any happen to be reading this post. :)

    Unfortunately I've taken to my female OC's more than my males for a long while now, so not me. :<

    No worries. I'm sure we'll find some male types. :)

    I might convinced to join this. I'm very familiar with WOD, especially OWOD and I've played VtM:MET and VtM table top, though I also have run a mortals, hunters hunted game and a gypsy game! So I can help quite a bit with things if you need (I have most of the clan books and the third edition rule book too if you need all that)

    Cool and would be glad to have you. I was going to sort out which edition to use once we have the core members, although I'd want to go with one of the more recent ones.

    I have a LOT of books, but they're incompatible across different versions. So it goes....

    All of mine are old word, 3.5 rules (the most recent 20th anniversary updated edition I think). I haven't ever played in the new world.....people didn't like it as much, so we always just stuck in the old world.

    Yeah, I'm talking about masquerade, not requiem, just one of the newer versions.

    I think the one I'm talking about is the newest, but it's been a few years since I was steeped in that world, so I'm not perfectly sure.

    I'm interested in joining but you'll have to give me at least a day to get acquainted with the lore and system. It all depends on how busy my Sunday will be.

    No rush. I'm giving it a few days to get responses from people before kicking off initial discussions, so take your time.

    I'd be very much interested in joining! I've created a few characters in the game before but I've never actually had the opportunity to play, unfortunately. I play male characters so that seems to fit as well.
    So, in summary, I'd love to join, if you'll have me.

    Awesome. Yes, definitely happy to have you. With the setup of encouraging breakaway side scene RPs, it's definitely a "the more the merrier" type thing.

    I'm giving people a bit more time to register interest and then I'll start a discussion of details.

    Great! Though I forgot to ask, if this does end up happening, what edition of VTM would we be playing? It would be nice to know beforehand, if at all possible to maybe get some of the reading and prep work done ahead of time.

    Most people who have discussed it (myself included) prefer the newer versions. I come from a LARP background so am used to running BNS and want to use that. It's pretty compatible with V5, although specific mechanics vary slightly. I'm happy to convert character sheets from other systems if people don't have the book but have some other book.

    Alright, so it turns out I have much less free time on my hands than I thought and I'm afraid keeping up with a complex rpg would take up way too much time and I'd only slow you guys down. So I'm afraid I'll have to resign.

    I'm sorry to hear that. If things free up later, give me a yell. I'm hoping the RPG will continue for a fair while.

    You can put me down as curious. Are antitribu acceptable or are we strictly sticking to Camarilla!
