Ha inoltre analizzato le recensioni per verificarne l'affidabilità.
Very happy to see this book released on Kindle!! This collection of short stories are all set within the Vampire the Masquerade role playing game universe from the early 90s. For those that remember that rpg, great!!!! For those of you that night be new to this genre, welcome! The stories are rich in content and steeped in the deep, dark, flavorful environment of a world populated (ruled?) by vampires.
The downside is that with a little digging I noticed that not all the original stories were included in this collection for some reason. What disturbed me is that there was no mention of this when I purchased the book. The price is excellent but I felt a little cheated hoping to revisit ALL the stories from the original book. I sent the publisher a message asking what’s up but have yet to hear back from them.
The verdict is yes! If you’re a fan or vampires, complex political machinations within the assembled clans all nestled in the City By The Bay then by all means pick this up now! If you had hoped for a complete collection of the original short stories. Buyer beware.
A fairly entertaining series of short stories set primarily during the reign of Vannevar Thomas (now seen in LA BY NIGHT the webseries) in San Fransisco. They're serviceable stories but only a few of them stand out in my opinion like an interview over the death of Marcus Vitel during the Clan Novels and a 5th Generation Tremere who has fallen in love with a mortal woman, only to be tempted to join the Sabbat to save her. I also felt a lot of emotion while reading about an Aztec vampire coming out of torpor in the modern era. Overall, I recommend picking up the Clan Novels before this but this is a fun read and I'm glad it exists.
Good mix of various stories from a range of clans and backgrounds mostly focused around San Francisco. Reminded me of the old Kindred the embraced tv show. This would be a good primer to share before a game so a player would have a glimpse into the WoD from the pov of one of the damned.
Some of the stories are a little trashy but VtM is a little trashy itself. The nature of the vampire is eternal misery and consistently falling to the lower rungs of society. Over all it's a pretty good read..
