Berlin - Brandenburger Tor

Greetings fellow Methuselahs!

While we hope all you lovers of V:TES are enjoying the holiday season, the V:EKN is not resting in our tombs. Nope, we are more active than ever doing our best to promote the game, and it looks as hard work will REALLY bear fruit next year:

Our beloved game is returning to print in May 2017. In cooperation with White Wolf Publishing and Participation Design Agency a card set called Anthology will be printed for attendees at the European Championships held at the World of Darkness Berlin convention. Read the full announcement.


As mentioned above, the European Championships will be held in Berlin, Germany 12-14 May. Unlike previous years, this will be a open tournament – you don´t have to qualify to attend. More information on this will follow.


Round 1 of playtest of the next official V:EKN expansion set is underway! The set includes 40 cards (20 crypt, 20 library) covering Blood Brothers, Gargoyles, Harbingers of Skulls, Salubri antitribu and Samedi. Most vampires are in Groups 5 and 6 but a couple are in Group 3. Round 1 will conclude at the end of January. If your playgroup is interested in participating in the playtest, please contact our playtest coordinator Hugh Angseesing.

The Design Team is also working on a number of totally new cards for the upcoming Anthology Set for the World of Darkness Berlin convention. These cards will portray characters and locations from the End of the Line and Enlightenment In Blood live action role-playing events.

As always we are looking for artists for the new cards - contact Ginés Quiñonero about that.


Rules Directors Pascal Bertrand and Vincent Ripoll are pondering a number of interesting changes, both to the actual game rules and the tournament rules. For example some Anthology reprint cards might need rewording. Stayed tune to for announcements!
