Vampire: The Masquerade – Shadows of New York is a visual novel set in the rich universe
of Vampire: The Masquerade. It acts as a stand-alone expansion and a companion
piece to our previous title, Coteries of New York. While Coteries was a general
introduction to the world depicted in the 5th Edition of the hit tabletop role-playing game,
Shadows present a more personal and unique tale.
⦁ A visual novel tackling themes of personal and political horror, suitable for both
Vampire: The Masquerade veterans, and fans of narrative-driven games
who are newcomers to the setting.
⦁ A stand-alone expansion to Coteries of New York. See the familiar metropolis through
entirely different undead eyes. Expect new characters, new locations and an original soundtrack.
⦁ Play as a member of the Lasombra clan. Formerly vicious foes of the Camarilla, the Magisters
decided to search for safety in the ranks of their former enemies.
Master the shadows and communicate with the inhabitants of the Other Side,
but beware – Oblivion is always lurking out there, ready to devour you whole.
⦁ Explore the streets of the Big Apple. While you search for ways to satiate your bloodthirst,
catch glimpses of various fascinating vignettes and forge connections with the eccentric
inhabitants of the city. One playthrough won’t be enough to see it all.
⦁ Shape your mind, shape your fate. You used to avoid defining yourself and tried to stay neutral,
but given your situation, you can no longer afford to do so. The choices you make will alter
the way you think, and your thinking will alter the paths you take.
