The Story

Vampire: The Masquerade is the original roleplaying game of personal and political horror.  Since 1991 it has captivated a global audience through its tabletop roleplaying games, video games, comic books, live-action events, board and card games and more. The tabletop rules are now in their 5th edition, and it’s time to bring the live-action experience in line with this newest chapter in the Vampire story.

By backing this project, you can help us achieve our goal of creating an exciting new experience for Vampire: the Masquerade live-action roleplaying by adapting the fifth edition Vampire tabletop rules to the Mind’s Eye Theatre format. Thanks to an incredible team of writers, editors, artists and fans, this goal has been achieved and exceeded - please join us as we present Laws of the Night.

This new release will feature updated rules for live-action play, original artwork, and unique content that will support and promote a seamless transition for fans from  Vampire fifth-edition tabletop to live-action gameplay.
