What is a tabletop roleplaying game?

A tabletop roleplaying game is an interactive storytelling game and experience for a group of players, one of whom takes on the role of Game Master (referred to as Storyteller in Vampire: The Masquerade.) The Storyteller directs the gameplay, and each other player assumes the role of a character within the fictional setting described by the game and the Storyteller. The Storyteller describes the setting and the scenario and the players describe the actions that their characters take in response. Through this process, players navigate a multi-faceted, dynamic story.

What is a digital toolset?

A digital toolset is a term we use to describe the comprehensive set of features that you’ll have access to through Vampire: The Masquerade Nexus. Our digital toolset includes a collection of official books that have already been released for the game, and will expand in the coming months to include all pre-released material. Released material is available in a Digital Reader and a fully-searchable Game Compendium, all of which is integrated with our Group Video Portals on Demiplane!

Is there any word on whether already owning a copy of a book will give me access to the sources on here? I bought three digital books without knowing about this website, and I can’t use any of the tools without buying more copies?

Hi oddsocksr, we did have a discount code that was active for the first few months when Vampire NEXUS launched, but I don’t know if it’s still active. The code is VITAE2022. You’re welcome to try it and report back, since I don’t recall off the top of my head how long it was supposed to be active for. The intention there was to let existing VTM players get their books here without paying full price, but we don’t have any plans in place beyond that code at this time.

okay well I guess I’ll have to wait till I decide to get a bit more serious, and buy digital copies here maybe when I decide to get the other source expansions like blood gods, and Sabbat when that comes out.
