On March 30th, 2017 the VEKN has published its latest newsletter (for March 2017). The newsletter covers a number of topics, ranging from news on the Anthology Set, two new Storylines tournaments coming up, and news on the upcoming VEKN expansion (based on the Bloodline clans). In summary, the Anthology sets new cards will be revealed on the VEKN website during the next weeks prior to the EC 2017 in Berlin. Also new cards (as published by the VEKN) are now tournament legal directly upon release (so no more 30 day waiting period). Mike Nudd has announced two new Storyline tournaments named Ascension of Caine and End of the Line, which both reference the Berlin (by Night) setting and the LARP event End of the Line (which is taking place during the World of Darkness Berlin convention). The upcoming VEKN expansion for the Bloodlines is well under way, but the round 2 of the playtesting has not (yet) started.

A new VTES blog named Thoughts Betrayed has shown up on the interwebs .. it is written by Ankha, a long-time French VTES player, with tons of VTES experience. There are already two articles on the blog, one regarding the details how Ankha is currently maintaining the VTES tournament winning deck archive (TWDA), and the latest one on the (graphic) redesign of VTES cards.
Here’s the full announcement of the new blog (as written on vekn.net on July 8th, 2016):
Because I’ve got plenty to share about V:TES, and mostly what’s around V:TES, I decided to create a blog which is more convenient than posting random thoughts on the forum.
There are two other articles being written (one of them being quite long). They’ll talk about old facts (because I’m getting old and senile), technical matters such as vtes-related programming, websites, or game design.
Feel free to comment, and happy reading.
The news summary for this week with regards to VTES:
For those interested in playing VTES online, here are two videos showing two full length VTES games on the Lackey CCG platform. The first video published by the House of Commons Table Top Gaming Podcast team, is kind of a 4-player demo game with extensive commentary during the game. The second is a five player game, actually the final round of the 1st VTES tournament on LackeyCCG. But see for yourself:
