5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant
This book is full of atmosphere and very well writen and illustrated.

There's plenty just in here for many a game, though it's the only Whie Wolf game where i'd say all the supplements are worth having, purely because they are all so well writen and full of usefull info.

There's a few gaps in the rules in this book, but nothing to serrious, and if...

3.0 out of 5 stars What exactly were WW aiming to do?
Dark Ages holds together as a rules system, and has alot to say on the "old" clans, such as Salubri and Caps. It aims the player at attempting an overthrow of the existing order story, or an elders game political chess. However, it is too early in it's setting. I know they wanted a game pre-Pope Innocent, but the world as it stands at that point is not...

This review is from: Vampire: The Dark Ages (World of Darkness) (Hardcover)
Dark Ages holds together as a rules system, and has alot to say on the "old" clans, such as Salubri and Caps. It aims the player at attempting an overthrow of the existing order story, or an elders game political chess. However, it is too early in it's setting. I know they wanted a game pre-Pope Innocent, but the world as it stands at that point is not exciting enough. The Age of Reason is too far off and the people no true challenge to control. The game is an extended backgrounds setting, and there is little there that a good player could not have extrapilated from the main Vampire setting. A great shame, and a chance to play a radical pre-inquisition game, with "lost" powers and traditions squandered.

There's plenty just in here for many a game, though it's the only Whie Wolf game where i'd say all the supplements are worth having, purely because they are all so well writen and full of usefull info.

There's a few gaps in the rules in this book, but nothing to serrious, and if you know Masquerade then you'll be able to fill them in.

This edition is by far superior to the second version, Dark Ages Vampire [released in 2002]. The rules in this edition [despire gaps] work far better in prectice, and the core book and supplements for this edition are far better writen and illustrated, and in amuch more gothic style.

Not to mention that this was one of the last game that the actual creator of the World of Darkness [Mark Rien-Hagan] worked on.
