a game of vampires

You are duskborn, a young vampire closer to humanity than even the one who made you. This thin blood of yours separates you: vampire society wants nothing to do with you, but you crave blood all the same in your undeath. Humanity will not—cannot—take you back. So the duskborn live two lives apart and try to survive the night; survive the Establishment, who would rather see you burnt to ash under the sun; survive the Establishment and Reformist’s petty, cold war over ancient rules you weren’t ever taught; and try to survive everything else that’s worse.

They say there’s a way out of this, though. A way back to humanity if you want that or a way deeper into the darker parts of night...to claim the power other, older vampires hold over your head. All either requires is one last death and, well, what’s death to you anymore?

Duskborn is Powered by the Apocalypse and inspired by games like Urban Shadows, Vampire: the Masquerade and The Veil. Play as a vampire shunned by society and scheme your way to whatever salvation you want—if you can survive that long.

The Preview version available for free includes the bare ruleset. It does not include setting information or the expanded rules for Clan Curses or Disciplines. If you are familiar with VtM source material, you can adapt the preview version easily, but it is not necessary to use the ruleset.
