Fangs is a rules-lite vampire RPG. Want to play as vampires, but don't have time to read hundreds of pages, this game has got you covered! I love the 12 lineages in this game, each with unique traits, flaws and gifts.

THE WORLD OF SHADOWS
This place has very little to do with the world as we know it. Vampires Werewolves, Specters, and Demons are all real. The world is dark, twisted, brutal, and gothic. There are schemes and secrets everywhere. The true powers are those that thrive in the shadows. Surviving is an art and not at all guaranteed, even for Vampires.
The only reason humanity lived this far is numbers. The Vampires try to hide their existence from the world as to not draw undue attention. Attention gets you killed. Hence a council was established a long time ago to uphold the carnival, the thin layer of deception, and secrets that keep the vampires safe. Only some of the many vampire lineages submit to the authority of this council: The Beautiful, The Grotesque, The Highborn, The Mad, The Sorcerers, The Untamed, and the Warriors. The rest claim independence. But even they can appreciate the usefulness of the carnival from time to time.
It is best to keep your head down and not be noticed, but when did that ever work for long? Journey into an abyss of the afterlife, un-death, and blood.
This game is a homage to a certain other game of Vampires and I hope you enjoy the darkness within. It is a complete game and contains everything you need to play beside some friends, pen, paper, and dice.
Compared to core minimald6, Fangs adds a "Coterie" for the player characters, the group itself has traits that could be used for or against them. There are of course also rules about the monster inside, powers, and the use of blood. Everything a fledgling vampire needs to grow.
- Play a Vampire from one of the 12 different lineages including The Assassins, The Grotesque, The Mad, The Untamed, and others.
- Each lineage has unique traits and access to powerful, blood fueled gifts.
- A small adventure generator to jumpstart your imagination and character sheets are included so you can start to play in minutes!

Hello ! I'm translating the game into the French language.
The translation will be very faithful to the original, except I'll probably add a glossary, a few NPC's (for example half a dozen vampires and other supernaturals in a sample small town), and some advice (damage & fear caused by sunlight and fire).
I just have a small rule question: to rank a beginning character's 4 attributes, you either roll d6 for each, or share 11 points. 11 points is really below the average 4d6 roll (which is 14). Is it a choice?
Thank you for your interest! When I wrote this it was a deliberate choice. You can have full control and be weaker or roll randomly and have a chance to be stronger but with the risk or being weaker. It is meant to encourage random rolls.
Makes sense ! Here's a first draft of my transation, by the way : https://drive.google.com/file/d/1DrcfZYDFIZ91E7gfey0hXG7Fjo1tkCy-/view?usp=shari...
(very rough, awkward DeepL-isms, etc.)
Things I've added :
- sample NPC's
- campaign set-up synopsis
- houserules :
- fire & sunlight (direct exposition : damage, indirect exposition : resolve roll not to panic)
- supernatural energy (Mage's inspiration, Spectre's spite, werewolf's wrath...) = works like "blood" (healing & fuel for Gifts) = highest number between Monster and Generation Effec
- I may also add some other play aids (a chart of lineages & gifts, a sample coterie...)
Sanguinaires (French Fangs) is out !
