Introduction

Welcome to the V20 PEN & PAPER MOD, a collection of tweaks and additions designed to approximate the mechanical flavour of the VAMPIRE: THE MASQUERADE 20TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION tabletop rules within the framework offered by Bloodlines.

Due to the limited nature of the Bloodlines engine and how much of it is accessible to modders, this is not and never will be a 100% accurate translation of the V20 pen and paper rules. While an accurate translation of most basic mechanical elements such as feats, soak rules, frenzy rules etc. has been achieved, the Bloodlines engine simply does not have the capability of completely simulating the VAMPIRE tabletop experience. Where I've been unable to implement something exactly as written in the rulebooks, I've strived to at least maintain the "spirit" of the 20TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION to ensure that any additions to the game at least feel like they convey the flavour of the tabletop game.

Features

The V20 PEN & PAPER MOD contains a number of gameplay tweaks designed to approximate the flavour of the V20 tabletop game:

  • Generations, replacing histories. During character creation, players can choose the generation of their vampire, complete with blood pool and attribute bonuses as per tabletop rules.
  • Overhauled character creation with revised attribute, ability and discipline assignment in line with tabletop rules.
  • Updated rules and mechanics such as feats, soak rules and frenzy rules that function as closely as possible as their tabletop counterparts.
  • Tweaked disciplines that evoke the flavour of their tabletop versions, including using telepathy with Auspex, being able to use Presence in dialogue and more flavourful implementations of blood buffing and healing.
  • New gameplay mechanics such as bloodloss and overhauled feeding which simulate elements of the tabletop game.

Requirements

The V20 PEN & PAPER MOD requires any version of Bloodlines with Troika's official 1.2 update installed. GoG and Steam versions should come pre-patched. Retail versions may have to download the patch separately.

The V20 PEN & PAPER MOD incorporates version 9.8 of Wesp's Unofficial Patch. No other mods are required.

Mods such as CAMARILLA EDITION, FINAL NIGHTS or any other mods that contain overhauled gameplay, are not compatible.

Your mod seems to use vamputil.pyc from the /vampire directory, not from /v20. How did you manage that?
This causes the "no hands bug" to reappear and will most probably cause a lot more problems if the player cheats himself through the tutorial via console.

After a look into the fiels it seems you have taken some stuff from Camarilla Edition and The Final Nights. In that case modding ettiquette is that you give credit.

is this mod a split install like most other major VTMB mods these days? I would hate to have to uninstall everything just to try this mod out.

Hi. It'll install into its own V20 directory and doesn't overwrite any existing game files.
