Vampire - The Masquerade: Bloodlines

Until the night of your Embrace, you thought creatures of the night were figments from an archaic era. Vampires and werevolves were just subjects of novels, Hollywood movies or campfire stories. But now, you realize that they are all too real. You are now one of the Kindred - a blood-sucking denizen of the night.

Seduced in a back alley behind a seedy nightclub off of Hollywood's infamous Sunset Strip, you have been unceremoniously sired into The World of Darkness and your existence will never be the same.

You begin your undead life as a fledgling vampire in the midst of a power struggle between L.A.'s vampire clans. At first you must follow the bidding of Princ LaCroix, the de-facto leader of the Camarilla, the largest set of vampires and upholders of the Masquerade. But you soon realize there are darker forces at work in this City of Angels.

Formerly an Anarch Free State, Los Angeles has become a city in turmoil. Caught in a power struggle between the vampire sects in the city, it soon becomes clear that you must take a choice-follow the scheming Prince, or ally yourself with one of the other vampire leaders.

The path that leads into the World of Darkness is littered with intrigue, subterfuge and danger, so tread carefully and choose your allies and enemies wisely.
