Children of the Blood (Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition)

Selected Option:

Do you know who considers faith among the dead a trivial concept — or worse, a new one?

Dullards and con artists.

These vampires want you to believe that religion is a new phenomenon among Kindred. They want you to believe only vampires on the periphery subscribe to the worship of higher powers or seek a greater cause.

They want you to believe this, because they want you to feel alone, without purpose, and disconnected from our true, spiritual — no, God-given — heritage and destinies. They’ll make you feel this way, and then they’ll be your friend, your only confidante, and they’ll have one hand in your pocket while the other measures your ribcage for the stake.

Do not trust these people. Trust us. Trust me. I didn’t survive for as long as I have through mundane means, through lack of conviction, or by fooling myself into believing there is nothing greater than myself in the world. Join me, and I can show the truth. I can be your friend and your confidante. There may be sacrifices along the way, but I promise, it will lead to your enlightenment. 

Children of the Blood includes:

A broad selection of new SPCs to introduce into your stories as antagonists and supporting characters, with many linked to strange and dangerous cult organizations — some new for Children of the Blood, others expanding concepts introduced in Cults of the Blood Gods and Forbidden Religions.

Ready-made characters for players, along with coteries for them to form, allowing you to take material from this book and immediately play with it.

New Bloodlines, Loresheets, Merits, and Flaws, all available to help expand your playable options in a chronicle of Vampire: The Masquerade.

Do I need this if I want more content or is this and the other expansions already included in a more recent printing of Cults of the Blood Gods? I know the core books had expanded versions later on with more lore sheets and other things left out of earlier printings?

In my opinion, it is not an essential book, but it is interesting. In general, all the characters are well developed, and written in deep, with many hooks to be introduced in your chronicles. On the contrary of Children of the Inquisition, they are not elders that are going to steal the spotlight, and they are not Princes, Justicars and political power players, as most of the characters in Children of the Night. They are believers, priests, sectarians and any kind of people that have ended being entangled by the webs of faith. Vampires can have superpowers, but they are as vulnerable as humans to manipulation and desperation, they need something to believe in.

Of the 27 characters, two are old characters from Milwaukee by night (Akawa and Anastasia), the other are brand new! I enjoyed these six the most: Faith Corrigan, Roberto Vega, Morawitz, Miss Fitzsimmons, Euan Dunsirn and Mari Jane Hollingsworth. There are some links to former chronicles and there are some characters that are going to make an...See more

why were the earlier comments removed?

not sure I want to do business with people that behave like that. The comments were not out of order in any way

DriveThruRPG sometimes remove comments, so you'd need to contact them. I didn't see your comment, but it would be helpful for you to email them with the nature of your comment so they can judge whether or not it was appropriate.

If you aren’t buying anything then, to be sure, you aren’t really doing ‘business'. Criticism of products is always useful. Commentary on products you have no intention of buying, less so.

Loved the new merits and loresheets, the spcs were a good idea but I like to make my own, the artwork was good, especially the cover with Matthew Dawkins in a dress.

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.
