Thanks, glad to be hear. I haven't got all that many friends who are into WoD, but I'll put the word out and try and recruit a few people.
Well, I lived in London while I was working on my Bachelor's, but now I'm up in Saint Andrews. But I was born and raised in the US.
My favorite books? Well, that's a tough one. I'll preface this by saying that when it comes to actual history, none of the DA books from any of the ranges have ever been very good (but some are much worse than others; I'm looking at you, Jerusalem by Night!). However, since Vampires and Werewolves aren't real, I guess I shouldn't go too hard on them.
My favorite splat would have to be the Cappadocian Clanbook. Seeing as they were the least established of the Dark Ages clans, they definitely needed special attention the most. The coverage they received before Revised in the High Clan book was too skimpy. I also felt like the expansions to the Mortis discipline in the Clanbook were much-needed. Still, it's not a perfect book by any means. I also want to give an honorable mention to Liege, Lord, and Lackey. While the mechanics were mediocre, it was good food for thought regarding mortal-supernatural relationships in a Dark Ages game. Sadly, the history in it was bad enough to have a negative impact on the book. Shouldn't a book trying to give players a guide to medieval social relationships and responsibilities get those right? But again, I shouldn't go too hard on them. That book came out in 1997, before a lot of the shifts in the scholarship of medieval society had become available to the general public. But that does make it a dangerous book to use twenty years later if one is keen on historical accuracy in Dark Ages games.
My favorite regional book is much a much easier choice. Dark Ages: British Isles was well-written, decently researched, comprehensive, and and nicely tied together Vampire, Werewolf, Fae, and Hunter/Inquisitor.
What about you, Infernal Teddy? Which ones did you like best?
