White Wolf Wiki

Alien Hunger is a jump-start story, meant to introduce new players to Vampire: The Masquerade.


From the White Wolf catalog:

A Taste for Death
Ripped from your comfortable mortality, thrown into a pit of blood and death, you strive with every ounce of your being to hold onto the last bits of your humanity, all the while feeling the inexorable pull of the beast within.
A mile high where the air is thin, an ancient genius has been snuffed out by an even older evil. Now you are alone, your old world stolen from you and your new one most horrible to behold. And ruling all is your dread thirst.
An Alien Hunger is a jumpstart kit for Vampire, designed to allow you to start playing the game within five minutes of reading the rules. It includes:
  • Five pre-generated characters, complete with detailed backgrounds and personalities;
  • Source material for the Gothic-Punk city of Denver;
  • A complete adventure to guide both the Storyteller and Players through the transformation from human to Vampire, in which they learn the true meaning of fear.




Chapter One: First Nights

While still mortal, the characters find their nightly routine interrupted by a breaded wildman, who assaults them and brings them to his lair. They awake in the basement of a building being quickly devoured by flames. They escape the fire only to find themselves the captives of strange, nightmarish urges.

Chapter Two: Life in Death

As the characters try to come to terms with their new state, they find resuming their normal lives exceedingly difficult. Reported missing by friends and families, the characters find themselves the focus of a police investigation and the targets of the same Vampires who slew their Sire.

Chapter Three: On the Offensive

The characters are given the chance to seize the offensive as they begin to gather critical information regarding their condition. With new knowledge of who and what they are, they are able to find out something about their Sire and discover that the possibility for a cure exists.

Chapter Four: To Live Once More

The search for a cure brings them into contact with a powerful mortal who has been living on Kindred blood for more than a century. He not only holds the key to giving the characters back their mortality, but he also has critical information regarding why the characters were turned into Vampires in the first place and about an ancient evil which may soon be hunting them.
