What can we expect from Modiphius going forward?


When can we expect popular content like:

Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition: Fall of London

Vampire: Chicago By Night


What additional game guides are planned?

Now we just neeed someone to make a working V20 based on this and we'd get a actually working V20/W20/other WoD conversion going again. (yes I know there are I think 2 V20 rulesets, aged, nonsupported, ab actually broken on FGU :P)

Camarilla is in developement, and Anarchs will come soon after Camarilla release. Maybe Fall of London will come after them, but I cant give you a ETA right now.

Just a note on the Camarilla book. It introduces the best system Vampire has ever had for influence: Institutional Conflict. Now that system uses dice pools made from Institutional Attributes + character abilities. But since you can't roll dice without using character attributes... that is a bit of an issue.

I hope you're on top of that, cause that system is actually quite amazing.

Glad to hear Cam and Anarch are on the way :)

I am curious on will there be support for the Onyx Path Publishing made supplements? Huge chunks of game world mechanics are in their books. Such as Clan Lasombra and Oblivion discipline in Chicago by Night 5th edition, and Clan Hecata in the in development Cults of the Blood Gods.

Taking note of it. Thanks much for the imput about it. The truth is that Ive been thinking on it for some time. It wont be very complicated, but Im not sure where to place it.

Yep, Im also intrigued on this. I will ask some people about it. My "dream" supplement to produce for FG is Chicago by Night. I finished reading the KS version of Cults of the Blood Gods some days ago and Im really impressed on how they made the Hecata and the Cult of Death. Additionally, theres one pregen in Fall of London of the Hecata clan, soo...

Based on the book itself I would assume that you will get the book content: descriptions (mainly updated lore and Camarilla structure), pictures, Lore sheets, and Clan Banu Haqim specifics (bane, clan compulsion, clan token, 2 additional rituals).

The general consensus that I have heard around me is that the price requested (almost the same as the one for the base ruleset) is too high compared to what it is expected to offer.

Rulebook is 420+ pages / Ruleset is offering the whole game mechanics in FG on top of the content + tables + NPCs.
Camarilla book is around 200 pages.

There are 2 quick-start adventures available for V5: "the Monsters" and "The New Blood Starter Pack". Have there been any plans or discussions to have them officially converted to Fantasy Grounds?

The New Blood pack (I have it) isn't really worth it, in my opinion. It's got some pregen abbreviated characters with simplified dice pools and is really just a short adventure to handhold you through teaching the ideas and rolls.

It could be used with other characters, but there's no lore there to make it worthwhile. The pregen characters as abbreviated SPCs wouldn't be useful currently as abbreviated SPCs don't import into the combat tracker, at the moment.

Ultimately I didn't find it to be worth the $5 I paid for it as the hooks were generic and really narrowly focused on these pregen characters.

I find New Blood good for a one shot testing players and allowing them to discover the world and the game system.

I have created a module for personal use, it is relatively quick to create as there are few NPCs for combat interaction and more dialogue with the other NPCs. What took me time is to find sounds and develop a soundboard as well as finding pictures for NPCs and locations.

I doubt an official FG module will be created for New Blood seen that there are other priorities such as Chicago by Night and the Fall of London.

I did not like Monsters so much as it is, I had to adapt the story, and, again, it is a one shot scenario.

It can certainly seem like it, but it's getting better. We got a couple bug fixes this past week on it. Also, the system is so flexible that if you have any of the V5 sourcebooks, you can import any of the stuff you want. I created a homebrew Chicago by Night module for it so my players can play Lasombra and encounter many of the NPCs and locations from that sourcebook. I'm looking to do the same thing with the other sourcebooks.
