Vampire Twentieth Anniversary Edition: The Dark Ages (also Vampire: The Dark Ages 20th Anniversary Edition, or simply V20 Dark Ages) is a game book published by Onyx Path Publishing, depicting the V20 version of the Dark Medieval setting of the Classic World of Darkness.
From the White Wolf catalog:
- It’s 1242. The Mongol army crushed Baghdad, then Russia under its heel, then moved on to devastate Poland and Hungary. The Holy Roman Empire stood to war with the Papacy. The second Lombard League wielded the word of the Pope and fought off Frederick II.
- The War of Princes rages. Patricide looms. Young powers look up the ladder to the next rungs, and see stagnation and hypocrisy. They see targets. When they look down, they see humanity. They see a power that could change everything. They see mortals organizing into universities and empires.
- In the mortal world of 1242, power shifted at the rate an army marched. For the undead, power shifts faster than a fire overtakes a haven. To the Damned, power flows as fast as blood from an ancient heart.
- Vampire 20th Anniversary Edition: The Dark Ages is a storytelling game of horrific power.
