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.

And yet, I think they made one of the best RPGs of all time with a small line that came out after Vampire the Masquerade. Vampire, The Dark Ages is one of the most deep, scary, and intense games I have owned since Call of Cthulhu. It shows you that if you take away the modern sensibilities of tolerance, taking away the power of science and the light bulb, and the secular understanding of the world, the world can truly become a nightmare world where every shadow may have a demon and every corpse, even your loved ones, may become blood sucking monsters.
Set during the turn of the century, after many years after the Glory of Rome was shattered by its own decay and the hordes of barbarians, Europe is slowly changing. Feudalism is taking over the lands, where once a central government ruled Europe now its a patch work of Barons and Kings that fight each other over tracks of land and what little resources are left. Dark Age Europe, the one showed in this game, is almost post-apocalyptic in the way that it shows how hopeless and dark the old world has become.
In this darkness, the Cainites do what they do best with what is left of the Empire they help create. Vampires are creatures that are immortal and do not change...so what happens when the lands and society itself start to change around them....and its also affecting their own. Old clans are being killed off while out of the death of these clans, new ones rise. Its a time of upheaval, of drama, and of great roleplaying.
If you have the money and you want a great game that has a great setting, get this game...you will not regret it my childer.
