Vampire - Saturday 2 / 4 / 6 / 8th Week, Venue varies.

The game is based on White Wolf's Vampire the Masquerade ™ and set in modern day England. If you think your wit is stunning then come and try your luck with Clan Toreador, and for a Kingdom at war there is also plenty for the more physically minded characters to do, this is definitely a game which caters for many types of character.
