What motivates an undead body to go on walking, talking, plotting, and biting?

The Hunger is an obvious motivation. It drives all vampires to commit foul acts in the name of sustenance.

The Beast, too, gives a Kindred drive. Whether in fear of the Beast within or in attempts to master it, that constant nagging growl makes an undead monster march on.

Touchstones — those throbbing links to mortality so many vampires hold dear — might drive a vampire to kill just to protect someone none the wiser to their guardian’s bestial nature.

Politics. Philosophy. War. Brinkmanship. They make a vampire think, feel, and fight for something, whether it be tangible or ethereal. These things give a Kindred meaning.

Whether letting the Beast rage in the gun-happy South Side of Chicago, chasing prey around the Loop, plotting out in Gary, or fleeing the Inquisition into the murky swamps of rural Illinois, Chicago always gives a Kindred an activity or two to fill up their nights.

The one certainty is that blood will flow. It will flow, and the streets will turn red by the dawn.

Let the Streets Run Red includes:

  • Four full stories for play over multiple game sessions, each handling a different core theme from Vampire: The Masquerade. These chronicles can be played independently of each other or in sequence.
  • Deep coverage of the vampire domains of Chicago, Milwaukee, Indianapolis, and Gary and some of those cities’ undead inhabitants.
  • A cast of Kindred with biographies, ambitions, intrigues, links to other characters, and ways to include them in any chronicle, whether as antagonists, a supporting cast, or inspiration for playable characters.
  • New Loresheets for inclusion in your game, allowing player characters to start with a foot, claw, or fang already planted in the roots of the chronicles within this book, and beyond. 
  • Nine ready-made characters so you can start playing any of the chronicles in this book immediately.

I have to say that I'm really impressed with this volume. It has more LGBT and minority characters than I think about any volume of the franchise since the original Chicago by Night. I also appreciate that Evelyn Stephens has risen to become Baron of Gary as she strikes me as the kind of leader that Anarchs need.

One of our club members bought this book to a club meeting to share it with the group. We aren't going to do review its contents but after reading it we think we need to make a comment. V5 has had a poor reputation for how it portrays members of the LGBTG community. The transgender woman presented in this book fits every negative stereotype of transgender people. Its like someone wrote the character with out any understanding of transgendered individuals. The Tabletop Gaming Club hopes that in the future official products won't be so offensive

Please, explain and enlighten us as to how "the Transgender" woman in the book, fits every negative stereotype? I swear, its like nothing pleases the masses and the court of public opinion in this age of sharing every single thought every human has ever had with then entire world. That poor reputation is without warrant by the way, as the older edition from the white wolf games studios were amongst the first game studios to embrace cultures outside the majority, but I suppose that doesn't fit with outrage culture and their narcissistic prattlings. There are quiet a few terrible characters in the book of all genders and sexual persuasions, its the world of darkness. Most characters are VAMPIRES.

I am literally a 41 yo transwoman who has been a WoD purchaser since age 15. It's not just "outrage culture", it's real people, like me, who work hard not to be stereotypes. I'm celibate by choice for 10 years and don't do illegal drugs or drink and I don't get pleasure from wearing heels or pantyhose (I don't even own either), so I'm not a stereotype and I would appreciate if WoD wouldn't punch down.

Just because one character has several character flaws in a game about dark and brooding personalities, doesn't mean they are promoting a negative view of the gender/culture they belong too, people. Ted Bundy does not represent me as a white male, no more than Theo Bell Represents Black Males. What you are doing is killing art and expression. ITs an NPC, it is not a take on a movement/culture/identity. I assure you, WW was not punching down when they wrote in a Transgender NPC, you are just angry because this Transgender NPC isn't some paragon of all the virtues you wish and hold dear. Look guys and gals, this knee jerk reaction of calling for people's heads on a platter has got to end. Do you really think this was their aim? I assure you, their aim was altruistic. The truth is, behavior like this makes developers afraid to add NPCs or characters to represent diverse sexual identity and cultural minorities because if they make them flawed and believable, everyone wants to cancel them. Would you be happy...See more

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
