I have previously mentioned that I am a fan of the RPG, Vampire the Masquerade. In relation to that I am a backer of the “Beckett’s Jyhad Diary” Kickstarter

Thanks again for your support!
Beckett’s Jyhad Diaries is a sourcebook based on the encounters of the Gangrel Historian, Beckett, who I actually don’t know a lot about. However I kickstarted this campaign because I like having plenty of fodder for stories, even if I corrupt them somewhat. Plus, it wouldn’t hurt to know a bit more about the mysterious Beckett himself.
I am also excited at the progress for Lore of the Bloodlines, and the Dark Ages Companion.
The Companion Books are always interesting adding just a bit more for storytellers and players to have fun with, though of the three I am probably most excited about Lore of the Bloodlines becoming available. Its predecessor, Lore of the Clans, is quite probably one of the most useful sourcebooks for a Vampire player or ST out there. Covering all of the 13 main clans, giving a light version of history and some of their special abilities, it is a good sourcebook for someone who doesn’t have (or want) to get all the clanbooks. Lore of the Bloodlines will hopefully be just as useful for the rarer bloodlines, which probably is more useful for Storytellers than players (In Much the same way the Changing Breeds Book is more useful for Werewolf Storytellers – though it is handy for players wanting to play a non werewolf changing breed game).
Lore of the Clans is available HERE
Vampire V20 Companion is available HERE
Changing Breeds is available HERE
