Vampire: The Requiem Rulebook is the core rulebook for the Vampire: The Requiem game line. It is used in conjunction with the , and focuses on the CofD: World of Darkness: Storytelling System Rulebook Kindred, vampires that stalk the night.
From the Onyx Path catalog:
Welcome to the Danse Macabre
Since time immemorial, the
Kindred — vampires — have stalked their prey, unseen by the mortal masses. Their world is a xenophobic nightmare, populated by tyrannical despots, wild-eyed heretics, bloodthirsty rogues and scheming manipulators, all unified by the mysterious curse of vampirism. And you would join them? You would live forever? To play the lusts of mortals like a violinist plays the strings? Then beware, the price is steep to enter the neo-feudal hell that the Damned have wrought.
Welcome to Undeath
Join the revival of the
Storytelling tradition. Vampire: The Requiem invites you to tell your own stories set within the world of the Kindred. This book includes rules for using vampires in World of Darkness chronicles, covering everything from the five clans to covenants to the Disciplines, bloodlines, storytelling advice and a complete spread of game systems governing the undead. Hardcover. Requires the World of Darkness rulebook for play.
