Dark Ages: Vampire


The Long Night is Over

The diablerie of Saulot, the waking of Mithras, the destruction of Michael the Patriarch, the return of the Dracon - it all means the time of reflection is over. The Inquisition stirs and the time to act is now. Across Europe, monarchs of the night set princes and barons at each other's undying throats. Young vampires take to the field ready to claim their domain and become powerful lords in their own right. Blood calls to blood.

The War of Princes Begins

The Dark Medieval is a very different time than the modern Final Nights. Cainites group in clans high and low, swear fealty to ancient vampiric monarchs and follow their roads of enlightenment in the same way mortals do religions. Ashen priests and princes face off in a violent world lit only by torches and fear. Dark Ages: Vampire is your complete guide to this time.

Note: 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.

When will this title be available in print again? I purchased a soft cover a few years ago and would like to purchase another. The quality has been excellent I just want a second copy for the group. Thanks!

So big problem is that Dark Ages: Fae requires this book to play it even though it's essentially it's own line. Not having this as PoD is terrible.

I'm facing the same problem. I want to run a Fae game and can't do it because I need this one and it's so expensive.

There used to be a PDF for the core Dark Ages rules WITHOUT the Vampire rules. Ideally, they'd release THAT as a POD.

Where is the PoD option?! I had it on wishlist and I was going to buy it when all of a sudden there is only the pdf.

Vampire: The Dark Ages is the first core rulebook launched. This, Dark Ages: Vampire, is a new edition, with a later timeline, and new rules.

How does it compare with V20 Dark Ages?

Besides the difference in the rules and the timeline, the feel and theme of those two games is very different. In Vampire: The Dark Ages the theme is Gothic Horror and quite often pure Horror and the world works as a sandbox. There are no fixed organizations and princes and stuff like that. The GM can create whatever he/she wants and the atmosphere is dark and heavy. In Dark Ages: Vampire the theme is Dark Fantasy, moving away entirely from the Horror genre. Everything goes global, same as in Vampire the Masquerade, contrary to medieval culture of that age. Clans are separated to High and Low and most of them belong to specific political Courts. The game imitates too much human medieval organization. It's a total different game from different creators. My vote most definitely goes for the first game.

Stay as far as you can from DAV20! It's a total new game from an entire new team of designers. It's Vampire the Masquerade in medieval times and while i love the former game, DAV20 sucks big time! Also the art is pretty bad for a horror game and has way too much information even for stupid things such as African clans than never got published in a Dark Ages supplement. This anniversary book sold the least of all the anniversary books. Once people found out what happened with the game, they run away from it and for a good reason!

Is this a stand alone core rulebook?

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.
