Requiem for Rome is a sourcebook for Vampire: The Requiem. It is the first historical setting for the new World of Darkness. It depicts the Kindred society of the Roman Empire, including the Camarilla and the Julii clan.

Summary Edit

From the Onyx Path catalog:

Glory Reigns Above
The living world is civilized by the vision and the power of Rome.
But not all that walks is living, and not all that falls will die.
We Do Not Live.
We are but shadows and worms, consigned to the earth and shamed by our incompletion.
But We Are Creatures of Rome
And that which is not conquered by the children of Romulus shall submit to his brother's get.
In the name of the Republic.
In the name of the Camarilla.
--S. Julius Macellarius Corbulo
This book includes:
  • Everything you need to play Vampire: The Requiem from the earliest nights of Rome to the ruination of Kindred society, including new blood magic and a new clan!
  • A grotesque and beautiful new vision of Ancient Rome through the eyes of vampires - full of bloody passion, mystical intrigue, and glorious battle.
  • The secrets of the ancient undead, revealed at last! Learn the truth about the Camarilla, claim rule over the vampire city called Necropolis, and confront the wicked and terrifying monsters that prey on the undead - the Strix!
Requiem for Rome is a supplement for the World of Darkness game Vampire: The Requiem.
