I've owned this book for some time now and I'm recently re-reading it as I prepare for an upcoming campaign. I've played all the versions of Vampire, including the latest version of Masquerade. Vampire the Requiem 2nd edition is my favorite version and I think the best version of a Vampire RPG.

Likes:

  • This game is versatile. Out of the box, you get a classic Vampire RPG setting of a hidden society of vampires scheming to get through the night. Tweak is some, and you can get a pathos filled Anne Rice style vampire game, or a Game of Thrones style game of deadly court intrigue, or a slow burning, street level drama of surviving the night or even a Blade-esque dark action and adventure. Play in the default setting or play with the tools in the box to easily make the game what you want it to be.

  • Touchstones. Vampire were once alive people living out their lives. The touchstone represents that connection to that previous humanity. Could be a loved one, a favorite place, something that represents your life's work or anything meanfully connected to your previous life. The touchstone rule provides the mechanism to tell dramatic stories. It's no wonder Vampire the Masquerade 5th edition adopted the Touchstone rule for that version.

  • The five Covenants and five Clans. Covenants are the social/political/religious faction your character can be part of. Clans are the familial liniage you are part of. The mixing and matching of Covenants and Clans for the game setting or character creation make for much depth in what the game can be.

  • Plug and play settings. In the book, there is a handful of plug and play settings that you can set you game in. These settings reflect the many different ways Vampire the Requiem can be played.

I've enjoyed reengaging with Vampire the Requiem. After some time away from this book, coming back to it reminds me once again why this version of Vampire is my favorite.
