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
Have a look at the Kickstarter Campaign HERE

We’ll also be posting the exclusive for backers Deluxe V20 Beckett’s Jyhad Diary KS t-shirt on our RedBubble store at the special backer discount price for one week.

After that, we’ll replace the shirt with a similar design at the regular price.
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

I haven’t played this (or heard of it) but I’ll definitely have to check it out … also, love the shirt!
It’s my favourite rpg. Theoretically the only things that separate it from things like dungeons & Dragons are setting and dice mechanics. In my experience you get a more involved story driven game. My posts, the mycroft journals are a serial written in the dark ages version of the game told from my character’s perspective. Would love for more folks to read. Yeah I love it too but it shrank:(. I do still have my single/taken/burdened with glorious purpose one
I love D&D. I never really got into over table top RPGs though. Most felt like rip offs of D&D. I’ll have to sit down and read your journals when I can. It definitely seems interesting since it has it’s own plot and mechanics, etc.
Sad that your shirt shrank ):
Its definitely not a rip off. The core set, called Vampire the Masquerade is set in alternate, dystopian, earth. I run two of those games. The dark ages one, same earth but in the dark ages. Much darker themes and more emphasis on character (DnD should have haracter development but the games I have joined rarely did)
Ooooh. That sounds really interesting. I’m at work currently, but I’ll catch up on your journals when I can. If I don’t comment/mention them, ping me and remind me. I get super busy between working full time, blogging and youtube. SO I can easily forget. BUT, I do want to read them. (:
I will hold you to that. Thanks for tweeting, and I will bother you later
I have another tweet scheduled I think tomorrow. (:
After I read your journals, I’ll schedule more.
