“Evil is always possible. And goodness is eternally difficult.”
― Anne Rice, Interview with the Vampire.
“There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right.”

You are the Regent of the Mordhaven Cloud – the gathering of vampires in this city in Michigan. The year is 2017, and a shadow of poverty and recession haunts the lands and corrupts the extinct American Dream. You will have to employ your cunning to survive the nights and keep yourself as the dominant force in the dark, crime-infested streets. How will you pull the strings amidst the clashing armies of vampires, gangs and hunters?
The Vampire Regent is the night child of a relationship between Vampire the Masquerade and House of Cards. You are a vampire and a politician, a bloodsucker and a conspirator. Will you have the strength, wisdom and persuasion to rule your Cloud and resist the external (and internal) threats?
From the producers of Highlands, Deep Waters, this game follows a “random scene structure”, also seen on The War for the West. This means that every gameplay is randomly generated to form a singular experience, and it is impossible to complete every quest in a single playthrough.
This interactive novel features:
Four playable vampiric Lineages. Will you be an ancient Balkanic, a mysterious Saharian, a future-sighting Aznuit or a charming Merovingian?
More than 60 random events (some still not finished) including scenes at the Auditorium, the Fencing Club, bars and poker nights.
Political relations. In the eternal power struggle in Mordhaven, will you favor the Cloud above all else? How will you deal with the Outlaws? Will you hear the City Hall requests?
