If you have any ideas for the list, post them over at the forum, email them to midnightexpresspodcast@gmail.com, or post on the Facebook page.

Episode 27 - White Wolf Magazine #40 [Storyteller Advice]

woman-1596956_1920.pngIn this second solo episode, BK focuses on one article in White Wolf Magazine #40 - namely one on Blood Cults for Vampire: the Masquerade.

He breaks the article down, offers advice and background for creating cults in your own Vampire games, and discusses the motivations of would-be cultists to make it more challenging for your players.  

As the community continues to rub off on him, there is even mention of cross-over games in this episode (without prompting).

If you'd like your own copy of this article, please visit our friends at Drivethrurpg using this link (every purchase helps the show).

As always, drop by the Forum, or our Facebook page to interact with the community, or send your emails to midnightexpresspodcast@gmail.com.
