Onyx Path Publishing To Publish Cults of the Blood Gods for Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition


August 1, 2019 — Rich Thomas, founder and Creative Director of Onyx Path Publishing, announced the company’s next supplement for the newly-launched Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition corebook will be Cults of the Blood Gods.

“I’m tremendously excited to be developing Cults of the Blood Gods for V5! We’ll be seeing all kinds of faiths and factions, from the Church of Set to the Hecata, the Bahari to the Church of Caine, the Mithraic Mysteries to the Cult of Shalim, and more besides,” said Matthew Dawkins, the World of Darkness developer for Onyx Path Publishing. “Being able to provide rules for this edition’s Clan of Death is quite the privilege, and we’ll be looking to impress people with how they’re presented. I’ve got an excellent, diverse team with a range of experience on this book, and we’re all going to work hard to make it stand out.”

Cults of the Blood Gods is a new style of sourcebook for Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition that introduces the pernicious horror of twisted beliefs. Designed for players and Storytellers, this supplement will include:

  • Scary, esoteric vampiric cults used in modern nights that include churches, heresies, and warring dogmas. 
  • Kindred cults and faiths built around methuselah worship, including holy rites, in-character texts, and religious tracts.
  • Setting, advice, and rules to play the Hecata, the Clan of Death.

The manuscript for Cults of the Blood Gods is currently being written and developed using the new Vampire: The Masquerade Fifth Edition rules. A Kickstarter is planned for a prestige edition of this supplement and is expected to launch sometime in 2019. Standard digital and print editions will be released following fulfillment of the Kickstarter.

  1. That’s a wonderful bit of news! 🙂 I’ve been looking forward this for a while now. I’ll definitely be backing the Kickstarter!

  2. We, from Rio V5 Vampire LARP are very excited for this release, specially for Hecata, Bloodlines, Laibon (African Legacies) and, for our favorites: The Drowned Legacies!!! Count with our noise, support and appreciation!!!!

  3. This looks like and very interesting book.
    Really looking foward for expanded cults and bloodlines, such as THE DROWNED (beaitifully hinted on Beckett’s Jyhad Diary) and updates on the Laibon.

  4. I’m very excited about this. I hope we’ll get some good Stretch Goals from this too. The Abberant and Chicago by Night Kickstarters had some of the best I’ve ever seen.

  5. This 2019? Lollipop. Please close to Xmas. Aberrant told my last scheduled money for RPGs in Kickstarter.

  6. So..is this how Paradox/White Wolf is dealing with the….issues that had popped up with having an internal development team?

    I had heard Modiphius was trying to get the exclusive following the Camarilla book…issues. Glad to see Onyx Path is getting to benefit from all that.
