Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines is a game for you if you like vampires, werewolves, demons, and other fantasy like creatures. This game takes place in the Masquerade universe where all of these creatures live but try to keep their true identities hidden. This RPG game is ideal for you if you like games that are similar to Fallout and Baldur’s Gate, it has a great story line and the characters as well as the world have depth.

When you begin playing Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines you are a member of the Camarilla which make up over half of the 13 clans. In this game there are 13 clans that are the descendants of Cain. As a Camarilla you believe that Cain is a myth whereas the bad guys in the game the Sabbat believe that Cain is their forefather and therefore the two of you do not get along.

The Antediluvians are a mythical group that believe they are the immediate descendants of Cain, the Sabbat oppose them and these two groups clash often.

In Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines you have the power to make choices as to which Camarilla clan you want to belong to. Each clan has a specific set of skills so you may want to decide based on that or perhaps you like vampires more than werewolves and that helps you make the decision.

There are groups that are good with blood magic but do not have good physical combat abilities, and others that are socially great but are not good in combat, and there are others that are made for fitting but are not good in other areas. You an experience and points as you complete quests and kill different beasts and monsters.

You can use these points to up different stats that you want to, and this is a good way to strategize during the game as you cannot likely become good at everything but great at a few things. You can put points towards combat which is a good choice as you have to fight frequently in order to complete your quests.

There are other skills that you may want to consider as well and therefore you have to really think about what you want to spend your points on. Depending on what abilities and what Clan you choice to be a member of can change the game for you as can how you distribute your points.
