PRESS RELEASE – The World of Darkness Befalls Austin, Texas in Gruesome Live-Action Roleplay Event – The Night in Question

White Wolf Entertainment — creators and publishers of the World of Darkness storytelling universe — will soon host a live-action night you’ll never forget.

On November 17, 2018, the dark and conflict-ridden world of the iconic tabletop RPG Vampire: The Masquerade will come to life in Austin, Texas for a realistic and gruesome live action roleplay (LARP) experience.

Set in the year 1998 at an illegal rave in the woods outside of Austin, Texas, The Night In Question features an engrossing story and horrifying, professionally created sets, costumes, and — of course — blood and gore. The fully-immersive event explores the monstrous nature and conflict of vampire clans from White Wolf’s supernatural World of Darkness. Participants will take part in an intense LARP — as either nefarious vampires who are at war with one another, or unknowing humans caught in the blood-drenched frenzy. Fans of the Vampire series can expect a classically-themed reflection of the vicious Sabbat faction.

Jackalope Live Action Studios is an experienced host of LARPs that enforces strict guidelines about player consent and safety, allowing participants to opt-out of interactions with content and characters of their choosing. The team is advised by Bjarke Pedersen and Johanna Koljonen from Participation Design Agency (PDA), creators of the Diana Jones Award-nominated Nordic Vampire game End of the Line and the immensely successful Enlightenment in Blood.

Storytelling Gets Stylish with Stunning Vampire: The Masquerade Official Gaming Gear

Ever finished a Vampire: The Masquerade tabletop session and thought how great it would be to have a unique, and super stylish, way to store your gaming gear? Perhaps it’s time for you to upgrade that printed cardboard Storyteller’s screen to something a little more thematic (and magnificent).

If a physical upgrade to your game nights is in order, gaming accessory craft-houses Elderwood Academy and Dog Might have just what you’re looking for with their new Vampire: The Masquerade-themed accessories, which feature both elements of the game itself, and the newly launched Geek and Sundry L.A. by Night livestream campaign.

Accessory crafter Dog Might has created a line of authentic hardwood accessories, featuring gorgeous Storyteller screens showcasing two designs — Rust and Death — that are both full of personality and practicality. The storyteller screens have three African Wenge hardwood panels and a catalyzed lacquer finish.

Elderwood Academy has something special for those especially diehard Vampire: The Masquerade fans: the Tome — a spellbook-styled game box with plenty of room for dice, pencils, notes, and cards. These one-of-a-kind spellbooks are carved out of dark walnut, bound in onyx leather, and adorned with your clan’s sigil.

Each of these elegant items can be seen on Geek and Sundry’s newest live show, L.A. by Night, a live-streamed tabletop RPG series featuring the newly released 5th edition of Vampire: The Masquerade. The eight-episode series streams every Friday night until November 2, 2018, on and

PRESS RELEASE – Vampire: The Masquerade – L.A. By Night Live Series Hosted by Geek & Sundry Begins This Friday

This Friday, September 14, 2018, gaming network Geek & Sundry will host their first live-streamed play session of Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition (V5) — the newest entry in White Wolf Entertainment’s iconic tabletop roleplaying series.

The Vampire: The Masquerade – L.A. By Night live play series will consist of eight weekly episodes, streamed Fridays at 8:00 PM PDT, culminating in a final episode on November 2. Jason Carl, White Wolf’s Head of Community — whose work previously included designing adventures and supplements for Dungeons and Dragons, Vampire: The Masquerade – Mind’s Eye Theatre, and other RPG titles — will guide play sessions as the storyteller (Vampire’s “Dungeon Master”). Geek & Sundry viewers will be transported into a nocturnal world rich with danger, intrigue, and political machinations, as the creatures of the night battle (or bargain) for supremacy in modern Los Angeles.

Carl has set the stage for Geek & Sundry’s V5 play sessions in contemporary Los Angeles — a city that’s become the center of fashion, art, and entertainment. It’s also home to the Anarch Movement. Once ruled by the Elders, the Anarch vampires claimed the city for themselves to make a mark in Kindred history. The city was a model of freedom and equality to Kindred across the world, but many territorial-minded local leaders carved the land into bite-sized communities controlled by “Barons,” where the rules and local culture differ greatly.

The Vampire: The Masquerade – L.A. By Night chronicle follows after the events of the Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines video game, in which the Camarilla clan failed to install a new Prince of Los Angeles. Since then, they never stopped their attempts to reclaim the city as their own. Another player in the power struggle is clan Ventrue, led by Vannevar Thomas, who has declared himself Los Angeles’ new Prince. Blood, politics, and betrayal sit at the foundation of the City of Angels.

In the livestream sessions, the Geek & Sundry cast will portray young, impressionable vampires surviving amidst this political turmoil as they do their Baron’s bidding and protect their territory.

The cast of Geek & Sundry’s Vampire: The Masquerade – L.A. By Night live show includes Erika Ishii (as Annabelle), Cynthia Marie (as Nelli G), B. Dave Walters (as Victor Temple), and Alexander Ward (as Jasper Heartwood). Each player will represent a different character from a different clan — each with their own motives and moral drivers. Carl and the players have already created a backstory for each character in the game, each with their own beliefs, ambitions, and secrets. The story also includes vital NPCs to help enrich the game world, drawn from the rich lore of the World of Darkness.
The Vampire: The Masquerade – L.A. By Night live show will be available on Alpha, Legendary Digital Networks’ streaming service. New Alpha members can sign up with the special promo code “BITTEN” for a 60-day free trial at

PRESS RELEASE – DarkCoast Unveils All this September with the White Wolf’s ‘WORLD OF DARKNESS’ Documentary

DarkCoast Unveils All this September with the White Wolf’s ‘WORLD OF DARKNESS’ Documentary

It Could Barely be Predicted that the White Wolf Founders, Mark Rein-Hagen and Stewart Wieck, who Started Working Out of their Garage Would Change RPGs Forever. 

LOS ANGELES, CA (SEPTEMBER 10, 2018) – DarkCoast and White Wolf Entertainment presents WORLD OF DARKNESS: the Documentary – coming to the USA this September.

Directed by award-winning Giles Alderson (The Dare, The Heart of the Forest), WORLD OF DARKNESS is a documentary that unites millions of worldwide fans through the evolution of one of the most prolific and genre-defining role-playing franchises capturing audiences worldwide since its inception in 1991 while exploring the most legendary role-play universes since Dungeon & Dragons. Deemed “the most extensively developed vampire mythology ever with the RPG game Vampire: The Masquerade,” by Imagine Film Festival, WORLD OF DARKNESS explores the continuing legacy that still remains popular today.

“It is an excellent story, which has never been told before and can introduce the world to old and new fans alike,” divulged the Huffington Post.

Written and produced by Kevin Lee (Gaming the Real World) from Luckyday, White Wolf’s WORLD OF DARKNESS charts the rise and fall of one of gaming’s most significant role-playing games and the development of modern vampire culture, as we know. As an in-depth look into the universe of WORLD OF DARKNESS, the documentary exemplifies its primary influence from its first book, Vampire: The Masquerade, and innovative gameplay that focuses on its extended universe and making relationships within this universe rather than the traditional tabletop questing. The talking-head interviews, archived footage and video from LARP (live-action role-playing) events are used to showcase the World of Darkness’ influence over the years. From influencing club culture, fashion, literature, film, television, entertainment platforms and publications, the World of Darkness has become an unstoppable cultural force. “The most important point Alderson makes is why Vampire: The Masquerade was so important to the culture at large and how it changed not only the world of gaming but how it helped to shape pop culture altogether,” wrote Quiet Earth.

WORLD OF DARKNESS showcases the large cultural impact that White Wolf continues to capture in its worldwide audiences. It could barely be predicted that its founders, Mark Rein-Hagen and Stewart Wieck, who started working out of their garage, would change RPGs, as we know them entirely. Entertaining and enlightening WORLD OF DARKNESS “celebrates the crazy loyalists to these games who made it a part of their lifestyles and mode of dress,” wrote WonderWeek. The gaming industry is three times larger than film industry; Alderson’s game doc qualifies for equal mainstream media, as WORLD OF DARKNESS “is a detailed, in-depth documentary that explains the social phenomenon on the one hand, and the behind-the-scenes business machinations on the other. A must-see for all avid gamers.”

The game doc’s evolution and worldwide popularity is told through notable celebrities including White Wolf founders, Mark Rein-Hagen and Stewart Wieck, alongside Vampire: The Masquerade artists, Andrew Greenburg, Justin Achilli and Tim Bradstreet. Supporting interviews come from worldwide fans and their fan clubs that also assisted in the evolvement of the franchise into the true phenomenon it is today.

DarkCoast will bring White Wolf’s WORLD OF DARKNESS to the USA on September 18th, 2018 for its online digital release streaming on various VOD platforms (Amazon, InDemand, iTunes, Fandango, Dish, FlixFling, Vimeo on Demand, Google Play, Sling). For more information, please visit:
