Now that Sekrit Project has been approved and is due out next month (don't have release date yet, but guessing soon), I have carte blanche to talk about it. Amongst the many new things that I've been tackling this year (and there's been a lot), I tried my hand at a spot of gaming tie-in writing, specifically a short story for Onyx Path Publishing's Vampire the Masquerade 20th Anniversary Edition (Dark Ages, as opposed to other parts of the gameverse) tie-in anthology, "The Cainite Conspiracies." "Incarnadine Seas" is set in the late 13th century and is about the unlikely alliance between a Jewish sorceress (exiled from England - an actual historical event, I might add) and a female Gangrel from France, both under attack by a Tremere thaumaturge. Gangrel and Tremere are vampire clans, for folks not familiar with the game. I did a lot of research for this, including 400 + pages of gaming manual, a bunch of V20 Wiki and game-related stuff as well as what I could find on Jewish medieval history. Hopefully, I did a good job! Cover and release date when I have them. :-)

Congrats! (I'm glad you clarified about the 20th anniversary for Dark Ages because I was going to be utterly baffled, since I ran my first VtM game a week after the first book came out in 1991. I don't think I had anything in the original Vampire: Dark Ages book (never got on board the Vampire train), though I had a blurb on medicine of the time in Sorcerer's Crusade, the Mage historical. Hurrah for more cool historical research in the game line!

I'm glad the worldbuilding looks good! I stopped buying tabletop games about ten years ago, after I bought the full series of Blue Rose books, because all my tabletops are homebrewed now, but I occasionally bust out the old books for nostalgia games. It's always good when a game's new editions are solid improvements.

EEEEEEEEESQUEEEEE! I am a dedicated old-school VTM fan even though I was late to the game, and I'm excited to read this.
