GameZone has an interview with Leon Boyarsky covering Vampire: the Masquerade - Bloodlines. Here's a little bit about modern versus dark ages stuff:
Question: Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines is a title that has thrived in the darkness of other times. What prompted upgrading the tale to the present day and why did you choose Los Angeles as the setting?
Leonard: Actually, the Vampire: The Masquerade system is geared toward the modern world, unless youâ€™re talking about the Dark Ages sourcebook. We wanted to make a game that reflected the feel of the contemporary World of Darkness, with all its political intrigue and challenges of Vampire society in todayâ€™s world. Also, we felt that there was no need to make this a Dark Age game, since there are so many fantasy RPGs in similar settings and this one seemed to lend itself well to different setting anyway. We chose LA as the setting because itâ€™s the â€œanarch free stateâ€ which fit into the story we wanted to tell nicely.
Yeah, but 1800s LA would have kicked ass.
