Hello Ministers! I apologize for not posting recently, but I do have news to share with you all. As many of you know, Storyteller’s Vault has recently been opened to Vampire: the Masquerade Fifth edition content. Well, I’ve been working on a Sourcebook of my own for V5. It’s entitled Secret of the Serpents. It will be retailing for $10 USD.
What is Secrets of the Serpents?
Secrets of the Serpents is an expansion upon the ideology of the Ministry as Presented in Aanarch. It includes an alternative structure for Clan Ministry than what is presented in the official books. The photographer for the front cover is Jan Kopřiva.
What is in this Sourcebok?
As mentioned above the book will cover five different paths that make up the structure of the Ministry. There’s the Path of Montu warriors, Path of Quetesh Hedonists, Path of Set Priests, Path of Thoth Sorcerers, and path of Serket Assassins and Infiltrators. Below, you can find one of the covers for the Path of Montu. There will also be rules to create Paths for your own city. These Paths are not Paths of enlightenment. They are more way to operate within the living church of Set. There will also be loresheets for all of the Paths presented in the book.
Now, unlike the V5 Sabbat book there will be advice on how to create characters for these Paths. Additionally, there is advice for Storytellers ranging from themes to plot devices. While there are not any NPCs pre-made for Storytellers there is advice for how to use each of the paths within their respective sections. Additionally, for you Serpentis fans there will be two new Serpentis amalgams and two new Blood Sorcery rituals inspired by Setite sorcery of old.
Overall, I am Very excited to share this book with you all and I hope to release it before the end of the Month! I’m just waiting on my editor to review it and for the last piece of art I am commissioning. I can’t wait for you all to get your hands on it! Remember, Set lives within us all and soon, you can tell stories about just that.
Note: The promised new artwork before I edited this post on 10/22/2021 will not be in the initial version. It will be added later once the artist has the commission complete.
