About the adventure

New Blood is a v5 module specifically designed to introduce players to the mechanics and lore of the setting as it unfolds. You choose a pre-generated character sheet and the game starts right as your character wakes up in a strange room right after the Embrace. The last thing you remember was you and your sire being attacked before you faded into darkness, and you need to figure out what happened to you and where you fit into this new, bloody life. Because the character sheet and the story beats are designed to slowly introduce the different elements of the game as they come up, it is a simple, fun, and approachable way for anyone interested in trying VtM v5.

Additional Details

How to prepare

Because this is a written module using pre-generated characters, next to no prep is needed other than filling out consent checklists beforehand. I use Roll20 to host the game and Discord for communication, so you should have accounts on both those platforms. I prefer using voice and video, but don't mind people just using voice if that makes them more comfortable.

What I provide

I will send PDFs of the character sheet and the player's guide during the first session.

Gameplay details

VtM is, by its own nature, a highly political and horror-themed urban fantasy game, but the violence and oppressiveness of it can be toned up or down based on peoples' preferences. I use the Monte Cook Games Consent Checklist, so any preferences or needs can be listed there. In-game, I also use cards available to all players as a safety mechanic. However, you will be playing a newly made vampire just grappling with their powers, so expect to be fighting for survival rather than glory.

How will character creation work

The module comes with seven pre-generated character sheets, one from each Camarilla clan. I'll send you a blurb describing the basics of each character, you choose which one you want, and then I'll send you the PDF. The character sheet is split up into three pages that give you your stats as they become relevant to the game, so don't look past the first page until the story calls for it. Keep in mind, the pre-generated character sheets are a good jumping point to help you focus on getting into VtM, but they shouldn't be limiting. If you want to embellish your character with little quirks and such, feel free to improv them as the game goes on.
