I adore Vampire: the Masquerade. Been playing it for a couple of years now (all LARP), and have gone through only a few characters. I'm from Florida, and part of the OWBN scene, but only a very minor player (sometimes life overcomes the need to game). I've played a bit of Werewolf: the Apocolapse, and have "inheirited" a whole bookshelf of gaming books from my fiance (yay for finding love at game!). With the new books, I'm able to look at other systems, too. I'm a little upset at the Apocolapse, but it's a game, and I understand that it's not the end of the world. Well, it is, but not of... well... you understand.
Feel free to ask me questions! I have to cut this short (fortunately for you guys).
