Press Release from Onyx Path Publishing:
October 30, 2018 -- Rich Thomas, founder and Creative Director of Onyx
Path Publishing, announced the Kickstarter has launched for Chicago By Night, the company’s first supplement for the newly-launched Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition corebook.
“I’m beyond excited for how the Chicago by Night Kickstarter will go!
I truly think this is going to be one of the finest sourcebooks Vampire: The Masquerade has ever had in its run,” said Matthew Dawkins, the developer for Chicago By Night and contributor to Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition published by White Wolf
Entertainment. “It’s a perfect supplement for players and Storytellers who have just embarked upon the fifth edition of the game, and it includes city building materials, over 40 characters for inclusion in your chronicles, chronicle hooks for Storytellers, and the clan a lot of players have been waiting for — Clan Lasombra. There's even more than that, but for that you'll need to check out the Kickstarter!”
Chicago By Night, which was announced during Gen Con: Indy 2018, expands, refreshes, and offers detailed information on one of Vampire: The Masquerade’s signature cities.

- Dedicated chapter to help Storytellers build their own city with characters, coteries, story hooks, and more.
- Updated and new metaplot explaining the hierarchy of Kindred in Chicago and ways to incorporate characters.
Chicago By Night will employ the new Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition rules, and the manuscript is in its final stages.
