Deluxe V20 Beckett’s Jyhad Diary from Onyx Path Publishing

Posted By Flames On June 24, 2016 @ 8:42 am In Features | No Comments


It’s ever been a loaded word among Kindred. Jyhad is in force everywhere from lofty, perfumed Elysium to cloying, smoke-filled blood feasts. Jyhad’s the eternal game played by elders, Methuselahs, and worse — it’s the agenda of beings so utterly beyond humanity, one such as yourself could scarcely understand its movements.

Luckily for you, you’ve picked up a copy of my diary. With my help you may just take a step on the first rung of understanding. Information worth having is information you must earn through blood, and oh, how I’ve bled for what’s contained within these pages.


    The Kindred are a race bound by blood and lineage, flowing back to the dawn of time and Caine, the First Murderer. The Clans descend from the Antediluvians, ancient vampires whose childer vie for power in a midnight struggle, using their own childer in turn as pawns in a game the world over. That game has a name, whispered by some, denied by others, and dreaded by all: the Jyhad.

    Beckett’s Jyhad Diary [1] is the written account of our skeptical Gangrel protagonist, as he travels through domains far and wide, embroils himself in the many plots of elders and neonates alike, and explores the mysteries of Vampire’s setting both wondrous and terrible. Scribbled in the margins are the notes of Anatole, Lucita, and Aisling Sturbridge – friends and erstwhile allies of our intrepid archaeologist, commenting on his journeys.

    Over the years, the plot of Vampire: the Masquerade provided a rich tapestry for Storytellers to use in their games. Onyx Path Publishing wanted to bring that tapestry to your table, and give a new generation of Storytellers the tools to weave that tapestry as they saw fit.

    Beckett’s Jyhad Diary [1] gives you canonical hooks and plot lines from the 1st, 2nd, Revised and 20th Anniversary Editions of Vampire, as well as Vampire: the Eternal Struggle and the Clan Novels series, both Dark Ages and Modern. We constructed those hooks as flashpoints – discrete events in the Jyhad that Beckett witnesses, comments on, and investigates, so that player characters and Storytellers can engage on a level that works for their home plot.
