The Vampire Retrospective Project

Posted on October 3, 2011 by Flames

Flames Rising is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Vampire: the Masquerade. We have reached out to the community of fans and asked them to tell us what Vampire means to them. We know that this game has brought friends and family together, changed lives, and created lasting memories in the minds of players and fans around the world. The Vampire Retrospective Project is not only a chance to hear some of those stories, it’s an opportunity to record them for future generations.

Since our original post about the project, we have received essays from several people ranging from people who’ve worked on Vampire: the Masquerade, played a character in the Camarilla, or who remember how this game has influenced popular culture. We know there are a lot more memories waiting to be unearthed and shared. Poignant and powerful, it’s clear that this game not only means something to all of us hear at, but to many of you, too.

We invite you to take a stroll with us in the darkness. If you’re interested in following the project, subscribe to our RSS feed in your reader or by e-mail. You can also bookmark this post and visit it as we update a growing list of essays.
