Vampire: The Masquerade

Vampire: The Masquerade was the first of White Wolf's "World of Darkness[?]" role playing games, centered around the vampires of a modern Gothic-Punk world. The Third Edition was released in 1998 and states, "The setting of Vampire is a composite of its populace and their despair." (VtM3 - 28). The title of the series comes from "The Masquerade", referring to the Camarilla's attempts to hide their vampirisim.

Characters within the Vampire setting are generally members of one, or another, of the various clans:

Kindred the Embraced[?], a television series based on Vampire, was produced by Aaron Spelling[?]. A video game based upon the Vampire milieu is Vampire: The Masquerade: Redemption[?], released in 2000.

Werewolf: The Apocalypse[?], Mage: The Ascension, Wraith: The Oblivion[?], Changeling: The Dreaming[?], Hunter: The Ascension[?], and Demon: The Fallen[?] are other RPG titles set in the so-called World of Darkness[?].
