So, V5

This may not be the only V5-related comic I do, so I'll spare you a full review. However, conscentious consummers will be relieved to hear that neither the lead design nor the witing were done by that horrible person named Mark Reinhagen, so you can buy it free of any guilt of potentially encouraging fascism (also, the lead designer is Kenneth Hite, and I support his work).

Setting-wise, the main change for those only caring about the vampiric society is that the glass ceiling left along with all elder vampires. For those caring about the whole picture, however, the Second Inquisition is too much of a game changer, but at least Hite allowed for the possibility of just leaving it in the background (otherwise, the game's premise transforms from Vampire to Reverse Secret Word).

Rules-wise, Hite fixed LOTS of things. There will be a couple things I may do different at my table, but overall I'm much, much happier with the new system.

This game makes me happy, I've been itching for a while now.

Peace.
