As in The Council, great autonomy will be left to the players. From the start, you will have to choose, for example, which vampire to incarnate among the three proposed (Leysha, Galeb or Emem), which will have consequences on your abilities. And improving your vampiric skills and disciplines will then open different paths depending on the choices you make, which will have impact on all elements of the game.
Inasmuch as Narrative RPGVampire: The Masquerade – Swansong will indeed offer different script branches in line with your decisions. You will therefore approach the game differently depending on the directions you give it and the way you develop your character through its sheet full of statistics.
Adapted from 5th edition of Vampire: The Masqueradethe soft, which wants to be loyal to the Dark Worldcertainly puts you in the shoes of a mighty camarilla vampirebut that does not exempt you from respect The Masquerade and therefore to hide your true nature from humans. To you then, in the heart of conspiracies and complex political intriguesbased on murder and power struggles, to protect your clan and discover the truth while respecting this imperative and quenching your bloodlust.
The title will be based primarily on the social interactions and “dialogue fights” against NPCs with stats just as detailed as yours.
