Paths of Storytelling: Vampire is an April Fools's Day release for Vampire: The Masquerade. It takes the form of a "Choose Your Own Adventure" style game book, allowing the reader to become a neonate vampire and get drawn into the Kindred affairs of their city.


From the White Wolf catalog:

Sometimes my job at White Wolf requires me to dig around in our archives. Mostly I'm looking for a long-lost CD with a particular piece of art or the layout files for an old book, but once in a while I stumble across old contracts, ad copy, and submissions.
A few weeks ago, I ran into this manuscript, in a folder labeled "Paths of Storytelling" and a hand-written note that said "No. Absolutely not. -SW." It looks like something we worked on right around the time of Vampire: The Masquerade Revised. The cover sheet appears to be missing, so I don't know who originally submitted it, or even if it was done by one writer.
Since it's the 20th anniversary of Vampire: The Masquerade, I thought it might be cool to share this strange piece of missing history. I scanned it as best as I could, and we used some old assets from our fiction archive to make a pretty digital version. Enjoy this glimpse into what might have been.
