Demiplane launches Full Access for the Vampire: The Masquerade NEXUS
Experience a world of personal and political horror like never before with Vampire: The Masquerade’s first official Character Builder and Character Sheet Tools on Vampire: The Masquerade NEXUS.
GREEN BAY, WI (October 10, 2023) – Today, Demiplane launches the much-anticipated full release of Vampire: The Masquerade NEXUS, including the official Character Builder and Character Sheet Tools for Vampire: The Masquerade v5. With Early Access complete, players and Storytellers alike have potent new tools for the world's most iconic modern horror tabletop RPG.
Demiplane and World of Darkness announced their partnership in 2022 with an Early Access set of game tools. Today, the companies have released the complete, official, seamless, and integrated digital home for Vampire: The Masquerade’s Fifth Edition. One major new addition, the Character Builder, redefines the character creator experience–online and at the table. The guided system walks players through each aspect of the process, providing instant access to the game’s many unique elements - including clans, attributes, skills, disciplines, predator types, and more.
“World of Darkness has been home to my most compelling and memorable characters through the years,” said Adam Bradford, Chief Development Officer at Demiplane. “The game states that your characters are a powerful way to shape stories, but I’m surprised at how much they have shaped me. I’m thrilled to see fans sink their teeth into Vampire: The Masquerade with a level of digital tools support they’ve never had before.”
"Demiplane's digital tools opens up a world of possibilities for Storytellers, allowing players to spend more time enjoying their game and making Vampire: The Masquerade more approachable to wider audiences," Jason Carl, Brand Marketing Manager at World of Darkness, said. "Their Character Tools streamline the entire character creation process, enhancing the overall experience for veteran and new players. Demiplane's platform has something for all Vampire players, whether you're freshly Embraced or an Elder Kindred."
As a companion to the Character Builder, the new Character Sheet offers unmatched convenience and organization to keep game sessions focused on the story, rather than searching for rules. The Character Sheet is accessible from any device that can connect online. The Character Sheet is more than just mobile-friendly: players can update stats, track experience, build and roll dice pools and share their characters with Storytellers or fellow players. Rules, related lore, and other resources are just a click away. Combined with the Character Builder, the Character Sheet brings elevated convenience and immersion to long-time players and neonates alike.
The joint World of Darkness-Demiplane announcement comes at an exciting time for the two companies: World of Darkness is in the midst of its “Month of Darkness” Celebration - an annual event that features the brand’s leading announcements for the following year. Meanwhile, Vampire: The Masquerade marks the third game system supported by Demiplane since June of this year - a pace the company says is increasing at an increasing rate.
Vampire players new and old will find a host of powerful tools on the newly launched Nexus:
Streamlined Character Creation: Easily navigate character options and explore the deepest recesses of creativity to bring the perfect Kindred to unlife.
Character Sheets Built for Play: Perfect for ensuring a smooth game session, “Click-To-Know” rules provide fast access to the information players need, when they need it. Click on any element and get its details—rules, mechanics, supporting tooltips, and cross-references.
Powerful Platform Features: In addition to Character Tools, the toolset offers official NEXUS edition Vampire: The Masquerade online books, a quick-reference game rules compendium, matchmaking, and game session tracking.
Collaborative Gameplay: Players can share character sheets with their coterie or Storyteller, making it easier to weave a compelling in-game story. This also allows experienced players to introduce the game to newcomers by making a character on their behalf.
Accessibility and Cross-Device Compatibility: Vampire: The Masquerade NEXUS supports the way players want to play, whether around a table with friends, in a live-action game, or alongside their favorite VTT.
Vampire: The Masquerade NEXUS is available to everyone. With a free Demiplane account, users can craft up to 7 characters and explore core features. For those seeking expanded capabilities and unlimited character creation options within the World of Darkness, diverse options await. Dive deeper at www.vampirenexus.com.
