You’re reading these words because of the show Kindred the Embraced. Yes, that Kindred the Embraced. The one where Aaron Spelling took the rising star of 1990s tabletop role-playing games, Vampire: The Masquerade, and turned it into a spectacular mess of a television drama. When it first aired in April of 1996 a teenage boy not yet old enough to drive watched it with his stepbrother. He asked enough annoying questions until his stepbrother brought him along to play. Down in the basement, a group of teens met to play Vampire: The Dark Ages. He made a Gangrel, diablerized his way to 7th generation, and it only fueled his interest.
