Description: In Vampire: The Masquerade – Heritage, you play the role of an ancient vampire. You shape seven hundred years of vampiric and human history in pursuit of ancient secrets, while trying to evade the inquisition and attempting to save what's left of your humanity.
Heritage is a quick-playing legacy game. Each game, players gather characters from a common pool for their bloodlines. These characters influence different vampiric "battlegrounds" and help in fulfilling history-based missions. For example, a noble-born warrior might support Joan of Arc in ending the siege of Orleans, while at the same time changing the balance of an internal vampiric power struggle or attracting the unwanted attention of the inquisition. Aside from collecting characters in their bloodline, players can also use the unique intrigue cards of the clan they are playing — changing the rules of the game in ways that fit the character of that particular clan.
After any individual game, the players get to collect their achievements in their timeline, which serves as a chronicle of their actions throughout the seven hundred years of history and also influences the final outcome of the campaign.
Additionally, players may turn some mortals into vampires permanently by taking the cards out of their sleeves and turning them around, revealing their vampiric side and giving them new abilities and a name. These get put back in the common pool and can be additionally enhanced in future games. To allow for surprises when embracing mortals, all character cards come pre-sleeved!
In this fashion, players proceed through history as determined by the progression of historic mission cards, unlocking new challenges, characters, and rewards along the way.
Eventually, the seven hundred years will end with a climactic conclusion as players scramble to unravel ancient mysteries using the clues, allies, and power they have gathered throughout the campaign.
Welcome to Vampire: The Masquerade – Heritage. This is the Europe of the year 1300 - but not quite like in the history books: Behind the plots of the mortal rulers and the visible ebb and flow of history, there is another world to discover. A world of immortal, blood-craving monsters directing, guiding -and sometimes forcing- events ever more towards whatever corrupt intent they are pursuing.
And what’s more: You are one of them.
Experience being an immortal puppetmaster: Build your bloodline, scheme against your enemies and plot to change the flows of history.
Shape your game by selecting which characters to upgrade, which missions to fulfill and which secrets to try to uncover.
Gather your friends to follow a campaign that stretches through 700 years, all the way to the end of the 20th century - or play a custom game with whoever happens to sit at your table at any given time.
Vampire: The Masquerade - Heritage is designed by Babis Giannios and illustrated by Lukas Siegmon. Art Direction by Christian Schaarschmidt. With additional writing by Matthew Dawkins (The Gentleman Gamer).
Heritage is a game for 2-4 Players with a playtime of 15-20 minutes per player.

KS-Exclusive Addon: The Strands of Time
While there will be quite a few historical references in the game, there are some people who cannot get enough of history. If you are one of those, expand your game with 6 additional mission chains and 12 additional history based unlockables with this addon.
KS-Exclusive Addon: Twisted Fates
While we have tried to make a game for grown-ups, we decided to keep the truly dark tales and illustrations to their own seperate addon. If you do not mind looking into the abyss, experience another side of Heritage with these missions and characters.
KS-Exclusive Addon: The Gentleman's Story
Designed by a true connaisseur of Vampire: The Masquerade, this addon follows the story of one Roger de Camden from the early 1300s to the mid-twentieth century. If you would like to look deeply into the mind and soul of The Gentleman Gamer we recommend this mostly mission-based addon.
We already unlocked all planned stretch goals for the game:
