Greetings fellow Methuselahs
Cold autumn winds chill my old bones, and I huddle in my coffin and order my chief ghoul to microwave yet another cup of cardamom-flavoured type O. What has happened this moon cycle, you wonder? Not much I´d say, as I am getting numb of age. I know some who call themselves “players” would disagree, and insist they live in exciting times, with “more activitity than ever”. No, it is all the same. The Eternal Struggle rages on. All is as it should be …

We recommend all members, especially tournament organizers, to read and re-read the new Vampire: Elder Kindred Network Code of Ethics, published on September 9. Created by the VEKN Inner Circle together with VEKN National Coordinators, the document is foremost a guide to help all involved parties to look after each other and be respectful of each other's differences. Keep it in mind!


This year´s Australian/New Zealand Championships are being played at Brook Hotel in Mitchelton, Queensland, Australia on October 5. Head organizer is Stephen Harris.

Like all other continental events this year, Black Chantry Productions has created a special promo card awarded to all attendants. For this event it is the Brujah Baron of Canberra Leumeah, with artwork by the great Lawrence Snelly. This exact printing is exclusive for the championship, but the card will appear in a future Black Chantry product. calendar:


Happy finalists Henrik, Lauri, Esa-Matti, Erik and Kristofer. Congrats Esa-Matti!


The Swedish National Championship 2019 was played at the Dragon´s Lair store in beautiful Stockholm on September 7. 42 players turned up for battle, including world top ranking Martin Weinmayer of Austria and no less then 13 invading, very bloodthirsty Finns!

After the three preliminary rounds, these were the standings:

1. Esa-Matti Smolander (FIN) 2 GW 9,5 VP
2. Kristofer Åkesson (SWE) 2 GW 9 VP
3. Henrik Klippström (SWE) 2 GW 7 VP
4. Lauri Salmi (FIN) 2 GW 7 VP
5. Erik Mossberg (SWE) 2 GW 6 VP

VTES SM 2019 final table layout

Lauri played at least one Anarch Revolt each round the first five rounds, which practically cross-table ousted Kristofer all-titled Lasombras, and also damaging Henrik a lot. A long, wavy struggle followed, were Lauri tried to rush down Erik's anarchs, while the top seeded Esa-Matti tried to balance the table with both helping Erik to survive and preventing him from building enough Legionnaires to be a threat, while at the same time setting up for ousting the crippled Henrik (who made poor attempts to damage Lauri) and preparing for a potential heads up against a very strong and dangerou
s Lauri. The balance act worked out and eventually Esa-Matti won on time with 1.5 victory points. Congratulations!

VTES content Sep 2019

As the game slowly rises from a kind of torpid situation, we notice more excellent VTES content. It´s actually more than we can keep track of, in various languages, but a couple of real gems deserve extra attention:

Bindusara´s Jyhad Diary baffles – soon the blog will have problems improving! In just the last weeks, we have read excellent interviews with (among others) Ben Peal, Selen Turkay, Steve Wieck, Andrew Greenberg, Richard Garfield and Skaff Elias. Keep up the great work! Check out

Struggle, Interrupted is 2019 NAC winner Corwin Brindley´s Twitch show, where he discusses VTES deck building and strategy, giving insights and opinions on decks shown on screen. Entertaining and helpful! Visit (Also available on Youtube)

• It was announced that the five First Blood decks will appear in stores around October 1, in Spanish as well as in English. Sadly, there was a printing issue in one of the decks, but replacement products are coming.


• On September 16, Black Chantry rules director Vincent Ripoll made a statement regarding updated card texts, discontinued Beta card texts and translations.

• Some exciting art concerning First Blood was announced: New art for Bonding has been created by Black Chantry´s own Ginés Quinonero for both the Tremere and the Ventrue deck, and the original artwork for Aching Beauty (by Dave Roach and Pete Burges) returns in the Toreador deck.

Round 2 of Fifth Edition playtesting has concluded, and reports are collected and a report is compiled by playtest coordinator Darby Keeney. After adjustments, Round 3 will begin.

Greetings fellow Methuselahs
I have been travelling. I seldom do so, because it tend to involve complicated arrangements with night time flights in a lead casket guarded by armed ghouls. But sometimes its needed. This time I was challenged by some young, cocky Methuselahs and the duelling grounds had to be Paris, France. I haven´t been there since the late 18th century, when some of my less talented minions happened to involve themselves in some very unnecessary events. Harsh words were said. Blood flowed on the streets. Heads were severed in complicated ways. It was a mess and I barely escaped with my unlife intact! Just like my recent visit…

The EC of the 25th year of VTES existence was celebrated in great style in Paris, France. It wasn´t only a weekend, but a whole week filled with tournaments all over the city. The main events were played at Paris Gaming School in Montreuil, a most appropriate place, because many gaming lessons were taught!

Below follows a brief summary of winners with some pictures - thanks all that contributed with photos, especially Marko Saari who shot the beautiful black and white ones - click to enlarge!

Monday constructed (25 players): Randal Rudstam (SWE, #4 in the image above), playing Tzimisce Sasha Vykos vote-toolbox (Card cycling is strong!)

Tuesday constructed (32 players): Maxime Socroun (FRA, #2 above), playing Nosferatu Cock Robin toolbox, after a very exciting heads up versus Samedi rush.

Wednesday sealed deck (10 players): Vincent Ripoll (FRA, #4 above), playing Toreador antitribu “Libertine Ball” breed-boon (without the boons!)

Wednesday constructed (12 players): Mathias Olsson (SWE) playing Black Hand stealth-bleed.

EC 2019 Thursday finalists
Thursday constructed (27 players): Aapo Järvelin (FIN, #3 above), playing “Girls will find” MMPA stealth-bleed.

Friday European limited championship (35 players drafted Jyhad/3rd Edition/Heirs to the Blood): Christophe Baltazar (FRA).

Friday constructed (65 players): Łukasz Ho Thanh (POL, #4 above), playing Goratrix wall. A very political final, but with no political decks!

Saturday Grand Prix final: Orian Gissler (FRA, #3 above): ANI+POT anarch Enkidu rush.

Sunday Brighter Future constructed (66 players): Tomas Wallmur (SWE, #3 above), playing Harbingers Emerald Legionnaires.

Otso Saariluoma EC 2019

Congratulations Otso - well played! One more final table for you with ANI+POT MMPA rush (see decklist above), and this time you are the champion, like in Warsaw 2011. Did you play the same deck on Day 1 too?
No, on Day 1 I played a bleed variant of Girls (i.e. Cybele + Aksinya multiple master phase shenanigans). Preparing for the EC that was the only deck I was really happy with and had thought I might play it on both day 1 and 2. On Day 1 I swept one 4-player table and timed out two more for 0,5 VPs each and a grand total of 1GW 5 VPs for the day. I was relieved getting to Day 2, but not too happy with the performance, so for day 2 I chose to go back to my last year’s deck with Nana + Nangila master heavy beatdown.

How were your preliminary rounds Day 2?
In this year’s preliminary rounds the tables were collapsing really nicely. There was at least one other heavy combat deck in each table (round 1 Otto’s Anson guns, round 2 Orian’s Nana animalism, round 3 Darby’s Imbued chainsaw massacre) which sped up the tables considerably. I also managed to shut down my initial preys really fast with forward rushing and torporizing their first vampires (apart from round 2, when Janne’s Stanislava was Archoned before I even had a turn to act) and Anarch Revolts did the ousting for me. In all of the rounds I got to the heads up with the other heavy combat deck. Round 1 and round 3 were really close calls with only a few seconds on the clock determining the outcome one way or another. In round 2 I made a deal with Orian as my predator for a 3-2-split, getting a game win of the deal and the game ended in about one hour. The games were super fun and intense and I was really happy with the result.

Why do you think this deck was a good pick for this Day 2 tournament?
I’ve played a variant of this deck three times on EC Day 2 and gotten great results each time. I’ve obviously had some luck with the tables, but I feel this deck is at its best in the super-grindy meta of EC Day 2 as it couldn’t care less for most block decks (nice Goratrix you have there!), and goes one-up against most combat decks I’ve seen there, like mono-animalism, mono-potence or Rock Cats, even celerity guns. This deck has a hard time in a fast, pool-damage oriented meta or in combat against aggravated damage. Also, the real reason I initially hesitated playing this deck on Day 2 this year was the influx of Emerald Legionnaires. The thought of recurring allies with FBI and a strength of 2 didn’t really sound inviting. I fully expected to see at least one Legionnaires deck in the finals. However, as I didn’t want to play Liquidation + Ashur Tablets for two days straight, I ended up sleeving up this combat monster for the fun of it.

You were top seed before the final, with 2 game wins and 8,5 victory points. What were your thoughts when choosing seat? (See table layout in the EC summary above!)
I wasn’t really sure where Tommi (3rd seed with Nephandi and Tupdogs) would sit in relation to Orian (4th seed with Nana animalism) and Radoslaw (5th seed with !Ventrue grinder), but he made the classic choice of not having DOM on his back instead hunting the stickmen. I fully expected Selim (2nd seed with Obedience-heavy Arika) to sit cross-table from the Tupdogs, but he instead chose to be their predator. I heard after the finals that he might not have known Tommi’s deck, in which case I feel really angry for him. To me, the practice of players choosing their seats in order of their performance is really interesting and often skillful part of a tournament, but the mandatory scouting is just silly – when can we have at least some information from the other players’ decks before choosing the seats? Like 4 random crypt cards from each finalist or whatnot?
  Anyhow, I was confident in my combat against Orian’s, though it could be dangerous should I ever run out of Crows or ranged strikes. I knew I couldn’t handle Tommi’s combat, and it was really good for my game that Akseli with another Tupdog deck lost the die roll for the 5th seed, though I would have loved to see three players from the Turku playgroup of ‘ore, battling like we did three days a week in 2007. I would also prefer to not have a DOM predator, so my choice was to sit as Orian’s prey and Selim’s predator.
All in all, three combat decks in the finals was great for the combat decks, keeping the two dominate decks on a really short leash. As for the other decks, I really liked Selim’s choice with DOM/votes for payload, OBF for delivery and Obedience + Metro Underground for defence – it demonstates understanding of the highly specialized meta that is EC Day 2.
EC 2019 1 hour
You have played this deck, or rather similar variants, for a very long time. What is your most recent addition and why did you make that change?
This version of the deck, just like my previous EC winning deck hails to the machinations of the Finnish combat master, Ville Kaijasaari. This list derives from his Finnish Nationals winning deck from 2013. I tested it out quite a bit before last year’s EC, where I played basically the same deck to the finals, and didn’t test at all before this year’s competition. The only change I made from last year was removing one Anarch Revolt for a second Pentex Subversion, after losing the finals because of Vincent getting my two high caps on lockdown with Pentex and Unleash Hell’s Fury. After this EC experience, I’d probably also add one more Immortal Grapple – I was never unhappy to draw one. Weirdly, Ashur Tablets weren’t that big of a deal this year – in all of the four rounds, I believe I completed a total of one set of Ashur Tablets.

Without revealing too many secrets, if you would name one thing that you do, while playing this deck, that makes you succeed, what would that be?
I don’t think there are any secrets, just experience with the archetype. But at least in this tournament shutting my prey down real hard worked wonders saving a lot of time on the clock. Obviously that might not be the correct line all the time, because your grand prey will obviously have a flying start.
Another thing that an outside observer might not realize watching this deck perform, is how much it is about managing and sculpting your hand, which dictates the rhythm of your actions when playing the deck.

EC 2019 Six winnersSix winners: Orian (Grand Prix 2019), Randal (Monday constructed), Tomas (Brighter Future),
Łukasz (Friday constructed), Otso (EC 2019 champion) and Christophe (Limited).

What are your general thoughts about the current top level tournament environment, and the future of VTES tournament play?
Well, with Black Chantry on the wheel the game is really thriving. Our local playgroup is livening up, old metuselahs are joining the Jyhad again and new neonates with unbelievable, admirable enthusiasm for the game are joining the fray. Metuselahs around the globe are also warring over the internet and the results really show – at least some of our local players are improving in leaps and bounds because of Lackey play.
When I attended my first EC in 2010, it was because we had received the news of discontinuation of the game. I wanted to go to EC at least once before the game inevitably fades away. Now, with ten EC attendances on my belt and countless great, fun-to-be-around, heartfelt friends scattered across Europe and even further, I have to say, I could not have been more wrong about the game at that point.
Apart from all the good things, I do also have some criticisms. Besides the mandatory scouting/spy network silliness during tournament play, I also feel that the Tournament Winning Deck Archive is somewhat oppressive on the global meta. TWDA is a great tool to learn the game, find ideas and claim your fifteen minutes of fame. But at the same time the TWDA decks from the last 6 months are represented a lot more in tournaments, which leads to self-perpetuating cycle of Stanislavas and what-nots (no offence, Martin Weinmayer!). I think we’d need also some other method of sharing ideas and decklists from tournaments that would complement TWDA, like sharing all the finalist decklists of tournaments in picture format, deck splayed out, as I heard someone suggest at the EC. There is still a lot of space to explore and experiment in V:tES. With that being said, I’m going back to the drawing board with my Nahum Enosh & Santaleous deck. Thanks for all the congratulations and I hope many of you can come to the EC in Helsinki next year to show us an alternative to our petty Finnish Politics!

Thanks for the interview Otso, and again: Congratulations champ!

Design Director Ben Peal was recently interviewed by Bindusara´s Jyhad Diary – recommended reading if you want to learn more about his VTES background and design philosophy.

A new Vampire: The Eternal Struggle FAQ was published, to add to the Black Chantry FAQ.

VTES celebrated 25 years, which Black Chantry brought attention to with this posting (including future plans), a personal comment from CEO Hugh Angseesing and of course the 25th Anniversary set. Note that the card changes in the set are legal for tournament play on September 15 2019.

A rare meeting took place in Paris on the EC weekend: All five Black Chantry partners met in the flesh (image above: Ginés, Ben, Vincent, Hugh and Henrik). As they live in five different countries on two continents, this will probably not happen very often!

Sadly, two card text mistakes had to be acknowledged this month: Murmur of the False Will in 25th Anniversary and Dabbler in Heirs to the Blood bundle 2. Both will be corrected in later printings.

Round 2 of Fifth Edition playtesting has begun, coordinated by Darby Keeney. Some cards have been switched and some have been changed since round 1. Many thanks to everyone involved for your hard work with testing and writing valuable comments!
