Onyx Path Publishing has announced a new project set in White Wolf Entertainment‘s World of Darkness.

Like its predecessor, the 1991 Chicago by Night sourcebook for the first edition of Vampire, Chicago By Night – Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Editionintroduces the vampires (Kindred) who occupy the blood-stained streets of Chicago. New loresheets and scenarios advance the Vampire metaplot and introduce a variety of new stories and characters. Chicago By Night also makes Kindred clan Lasombra playable for the first time in the V5 series.
Highlights of the V5 supplement geared for players and Storytellers will include:
- Clan Lasombra profile with Obtenebration rules. Playable for the first time in the V5 line!
- Loresheets to help players incorporate Vampire’s deep metaplot into character backgrounds.
- Urban legends, maps, characters, coteries, story hooks, and a complete scenario for Storytellers.
- Updated and new metaplot explaining the hierarchy of Kindred in Chicago and ways to incorporate characters.
The original Chicago By Night was a pivotal supplement for the original Vampire: The Masquerade. It really created the “society of vampires,” focusing on how the Clans functioned in a real city and became a blueprint for what came after.
The Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition corebook launched on August 2, 2018, propelling the roleplaying game of personal and political horror into the 21st century.
