From the back of the book:
FEAR THE NIGHT FOR IT HAS FANGS!
The city is a place of nightmare and darkness, where the worst fears of mortals' hearts come alive. Creatures driven by their need to feed upon us like lowly cattle stalk the shadows. If you choose to come here, mortal, it will be your end!
Vampires have appeared in legend for time immemorial, throughout all ages of history. Vampire City represents a new voice in their tale, inviting you to make it your own. Romanticism and tragedy, sacrifice and avarice, diplomacy and betrayal, gift and curse, the struggle with mortality: this game is not for the faint of heart.
A roleplaying game for three to five players, Vampire City focuses on these dark souls. Without the need for a gamemaster, the game allows everyone to participate in a truly collaborative experience; giving free reign to pursue even contrary interests!
