Dark Ages Europe is a setting book for Dark Ages: Vampire that details the powers of Europe, and of the European vassal states in the Middle East, as they existed in the Dark Medieval of the World of Darkness. Portions of the book update various cities and characters from their circa-1197 CE state (as seen in Vampire: The Dark Ages) to the year 1230 (the setting of the Revised Dark Ages line of games).

Summary[edit | edit source]

From the White Wolf catalog:

Shadowed Kingdoms
The peace of the Long Night is over, and we must fight for our very survival. Each of us, the so-called lords of the night, claims domains and influence across this fractured continent. Some of us stand as feudal lords, others as gods, but it is over these lands and these hearts that we do battle.
Bloodied Battlefields
Dark Ages Europe is the major setting book for the new Dark Ages line. All the nations and kingdoms of medieval Europe are examined, along with the vampiric monarchs and fiends who infest them. From the Languedoc rent by the Albigensian Crusade, to the vampiric Baronies of Avalon ruled by the Methuselah-God Mithras, Dark Medieval Europe is a dangerous place. Be sure to learn your way around.
Dark Ages Europe includes:
  • Plot and story hook for every region of Europe
  • Information on the mortal powers and kingdoms of the day
  • Vampires from every corner of Europe and beyond
