V20 Dark Ages Companion – Sean’s Pick, 052517

The Dark Ages as only the World of Darkness can express them. Lots of information specifically about domains, how to build them, and how to keep them from disappearing in a wave of terror and death.

Travel the long roads and deep seas in search of power and experience danger, or tackle the wilderness to hunt monsters and face death. Settlements large and small dot the black expanse with the promise of sanctuary, life, and community. These bastions of civilization present cold comfort, when playing host to vampire warlords and sadistic Cainite faiths. Whether led by a Prince, a coordinated belief, or hounded by monsters from without and within — no domain is truly the same as another.

Dark Ages Companion includes:

• Domains scattered across the world, from small fiefdoms to massive cities. Bath, Bjarkarey, Constantinople, Rome, Mogadishu, and Mangaluru each receive coverage.

• Apocrypha including plot hooks, new Paths, and mysteries to explore in your games.

• A how-to guide on building a domain within your chronicle, including events and servants necessary to make a domain as functional or dysfunctional as you wish.

• A study on warfare in the Dark Ages period, so combat in your chronicles can gain authenticity and lethality.

    Why? What does it have that makes it better than Magical Medieval Society? How does it build on the material? What’s the ringer in the book where you went, “yes. This is why I needed this.” ?

      Fairly certain this book deals with the subject matter in a way that best serves V20 Vampire players. I’ve done no comparison with the other book you mention.

        No, that’s just it– you’ve done nothing comparative or expository at all. It’s just not very helpful. *shrug*
