Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines Wiki

You Only Die Once a Night is a quest available in Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines.


This quest is given by Romero, the caretaker of the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. To acquire it one has to enter the cemetery through the hole to the right from the main gate and enter the shack down the hill. Romero will ask if the fledgling is willing to keep watch while he's out doing some business, offering this quest. By asking him if he needs help with something else he will also offer the Pimpin' for Romero quest. Choosing this quest makes it impossible to do the other and vice versa.



  1. Speak with Romero.
  2. Agree to keep watch.
  3. Exit the shack after Romero has left.
  4. Kill any zombies attempting to escape the cemetery through either of the two gates.
  5. Speak with Romero once he has returned. (+1 to Firearms) (Experience Rewarded (Icon).png 3 XP)
  6. Quest Complete (Icon).png Quest Complete

  • Failure to prevent the zombies from escaping will result in a Masquerade Violation (Icon).png Masquerade Violation.
  • It is possible to skip this quest and still earn +2 exp if the fledgling has sufficient seduction skill (unsure level; I had a 7, I think) and is willing to be Romero’s date. No quest appears, no items gained, no skill bonus either.
