Geek & Sundry Hosts Vampire: The Masquerade this Friday
(Los Angeles, September 13, 2018 ) This Friday, September 14, 2018, gaming network Geek & Sundry will host their first live-streamed play session of Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition (V5) — the newest entry in White Wolf Entertainment’s iconic tabletop roleplaying series.
The Vampire: The Masquerade - L.A. By Night live play series will consist of eight weekly episodes, streamed Fridays at 8:00 PM PDT, culminating in a final episode on November 2. Jason Carl, White Wolf’s Head of Community — whose work previously included designing adventures and supplements for Dungeons and Dragons, Vampire: The Masquerade - Mind’s Eye Theatre, and other RPG titles — will guide play sessions as the storyteller (Vampire’s “Dungeon Master”). Geek & Sundry viewers will be transported into a nocturnal world rich with danger, intrigue, and political machinations, as the creatures of the night battle (or bargain) for supremacy in modern Los Angeles.
The Vampire: The Masquerade - L.A. By Night chronicle follows after the events of the Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines video game, in which the Camarilla clan failed to install a new Prince of Los Angeles. Since then, they never stopped their attempts to reclaim the city as their own. Another player in the power struggle is clan Ventrue, led by Vannevar Thomas, who has declared himself Los Angeles’ new Prince. Blood, politics, and betrayal sit at the foundation of the City of Angels.
The cast of Geek & Sundry’s Vampire: The Masquerade - L.A. By Night live show includes Erika Ishii (as Annabelle), Cynthia Marie (as Nelli G), B. Dave Walters (as Victor Temple), and Alexander Ward (as Jasper Heartwood). Each player will represent a different character from a different clan — each with their own motives and moral drivers. Carl and the players have already created a backstory for each character in the game, each with their own beliefs, ambitions, and secrets. The story also includes vital NPCs to help enrich the game world, drawn from the rich lore of the World of Darkness.
