, usually referred to properly as The Players Guide , is the Players Guide for the first edition of the The Vampire Players Guide Vampire: The Masquerade rules. The book introduced a number of new traits and systems that were later reused in other World of Darkness and Storyteller System games, among them Merits and Flaws, Secondary Abilities, sub- splats (in this case, bloodlines), rules for trait ratings above five dots, and an expanded and detailed list of equipment (mostly firearms and melee weapons). Much of the content of the book was later adapted into the under the Vampire Players Guide Second Edition rules.

White Wolf catalog:
"They drove me down, used me as their pawn. Never again, never more shall I be used by another. They thought they had all the power, that they pulled all the strings, but now their strength is mine. Now, with the new might coursing through my body, I will have vengeance."
