Vampires, Witches, and... Djinn?

So, one game every other week is just not cuttin' it for me. 
I wanted to do something very different from Troika (which is still going strong.)
I decided I wanted to revisit the roaring 90's. 
I'm teetering between running Vampire: the Masquerade 2nd edition using only the main book and some selected stuff from the Player's Guide. 
I might also do the Eden version of CJ Carella's Witchcraft. 
I might also do a mini-campaign of one and switch to the other. 

Delving back into VtM marks my first attempt to do so since undergrad, a relic of my super cringey ivory-tower-gaming phase. It's also my first attempt at anything White Wolf since 2016, when I threw up my hands and gave up on the super awful Beast: the Primordial. 

 My gaming sensibilities have changed, almost beyond recognition, since college. Fuck all that highbrow shit, I'm taking cues from The Crow, Blade 1, and the wonderful VtM computer game from 2004. 

I'm still considering Witchcraft, which I have not run, though I have run three other Eden Studios games and I know my way around the Unisystem. 

Unrelated: I am reading through GURPS Arabian Nights. No, I don't know why.

  2. I dig on anything “Arabian Nights.” But
    My general experience with all things GURPS has been, well, bland. Just bland.

    Still, I’m tempted.

    1. GURPS Arabian Nights reads like a chapter from a history textbook. I'm about ready to tap out.

      ...and yeah, that seems to be the general vibe of GURPS. Lots of good information, but about as exciting as unbuttered toast.

      Next up is GURPS Martial Arts. It was written by the guy who wrote Witchcraft and Palladium's Nightbanespawn, so certainly it will have a little bit more life in it... surely...
