Vampire: The Masquerade exploded into hobby games in 1991 and inspired a generation of fans the likes of which the game industry had never seen before or since. The cultural significance Vampire left on not just the gaming world but on modern vampire-related pop culture can be seen and felt at virtually every turn and in every medium today.

Vampire: The Masquerade - 20th Anniversary Edition brings the entire World of Darkness experience full circle and will serve as the perfect anniversary milestone to celebrate two decades of gaming after dark. This is the original Masquerade in all its glory, and our way of saying thank you and welcome home.

  • All thirteen original Clans, Clan variants and bloodlines, with their signature Disciplines
  • Classic rules updated from Vampire's Revised Edition
  • Character creation and advancement from Neonate to Methuselah
  • All the Disciplines from level one through nine
  • Updated setting to the modern nights
  • New full color original art by Tim Bradstreet and other classic Masquerade artists

About the Now in Print editions:

1. The Black & White print editions of this book are not full-bleed. Because of printing requirements there is a small white border around the edge of the pages.

2. Standard Color uses a thinner paper stock than Premium Color. This usually means the colors are less vivid, but it also means the price drops a bit per page in the production process. Examples of pages: Premium Color vs. Standard Color.

Does anyone know if the PDF version of this contains hyperlinks within it? For exam if it was to says "Refer to page 82" you could click that and it would go to page 82.

No hyperlinks I found - unless it's a PDF setting I don't have enabled. Seems you would be stuck with having to manually change to a reference page.

Random question: will this work with the Gehenna book? I want to run a VTM game centred on the end of the world and I just want to make sure before I buy this that it syncs well with that

I'm thinking of buying this book, but I had a question.
What's the difference between the standard hardcover book and the premium heavy weight version?

The Premium Heavyweight book is so awesome! Thickest RPG book in my collection. The quality of the paper, print and binding is top notch; though the binding's quality will probably show after extensive use. It did not make those cracking noises books with poor binding make. Compared to Revised edition, which fell apart almost instantly, this product seem a lot more sturdy.

Repeating vegar F's concerns. The file is corrupt and can't be opened.

Worked fine when I downloaded it again just now. Try re-downloading it. Sometimes DTRPG's fulfillment servers fart a bit and it gives you a corrupted file. A second attempt (maybe after waiting for traffic to die down a bit) usually works fine.

Is this now printed as one big tome or is it still in two parts?

Is the standard color hardback book's binding high enough quality to tolerate lots and lots of flipping?

The binding on all the old WoD POD books (which are all hefty volumes) is downright horrible. I own them all, and I dare not open them more than for show (I have a big RPG collection). Not recommended. Get the PDF if you don't mind. Vampire the Masquerade nth edition is coming out some time soon anyways.

I received mine today. I bought the premium heavyweight edition. The binding seems really good, actually much better than Revised Edition.

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.
