Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    I still think that WW should run a Traitor Recycling Studio esque group that updates oWoD.

    I vaguely remember seeing a joke setup for a 'Pets: The Sheddening' game somewhere, and it might've even been on a WW site.

    Probably a joke ala Pimp: The Backhanding.

    Of course, Pimp turned into a card game and was actually sold.

    The sixth game was revealed in the puzzle on the back of Changeling: The Lost. It said, after being deciphered: "The hunters are coming 2008."

    So it seems likely that the sixth game will be Hunter.

    I was hoping for a Wraith or Demon update, personally, but I suspect we'll see them eventually. I'm also unsure how they're going to make a Hunter game distinct from the regular mortals line, but we'll see.

    Well, the Hunters were mortal, but they were never regular.

    I came so close to buying the Changeling book tonight. Not even to play, just to read over and over again.

    That and since they are working with the creators of EVE Online to make a WoD MMO, so I think their efforts are kind of slanted towards it.

    My favorite part is the title of the book. Mortal: The Dying

    I have done so.

    And Discworld GURPS.

    ...at full price. D:

    I honestly don't know, but apparently, and this is just what I've heard, its going to be that every 'area' is as big as the solar systems in EVE (which are big) and then you travel between the different areas of the city and do stuff. But like I said, this is all based off of small bits of information that I've heard from people, and may not even be how the final version works.

    Did they announce which titles will make it in?

    Mage is for sure in. They just give you blocks of code to screw up.

    It's not quite that bad. Mortals can be pretty dangerous in the nWoD, particularly if they're prepared.

    WoD mixed games are a pretty bad idea, just puttin' that out there.

    Only if your GM has a poor memory/poor understanding of the rules. The games are very compatible, the problem is having characters of opposing factions work together without killing one another, having them all be members of the Technocracy is a good way to subvert that.

    lolwut? Technocracy is open to non-mages too?

    Certainly. The Technocracy's beliefs can be used to explain all supernatural activity, not just magic.

    To be a Technocrat is to hold unyielding belief in scientific principle, over mysticism and 'magic'.

    The Technocracy is all about control. They will accept all into their ranks that will help them control the world.
    If that means convincing a Vampire that their blood thirst and vampiric traits are a result of an engineered virus or some sort of genetic aberration, or a Hunter that their Edges and foresight are caused by hypertech nano machines, so be it (though they are just joining to help destroy themselves, kind of counter-productive I suppose).


    While the Technocracy came in the form of a Mage book, it can be open to all character types given they adhere to certain Technocratic principles. Atleast, this is the way I have always interpreted the Technocracy.

    Anyone know of a WoD System Reference Document like the D&D one?

    ? I'm pretty sure Technocrats are pretty much all mages. Not that there aren't possibly non-mages within their number, but they're pretty dedicated to, y'no, destroying Reality Deviants.

    Not true. Check out some of the books. I'm at school, and am unable to reference them correctly, but I believe only about 25% are able to use the enlightened sciences, or are mages.

    Yeah, but what percent are werewolves/vampires/changelings/etc?

    The part of the Technocracy that aren't magi are normal humans.

    That is never stipulated, because for the most part the Technocracy is out to destroy them. However given the simple principles of the Technocracy, I see no reason that they cannot exist within the Technocracy as mere pawns to further their cause.

    But, of course, that is where your imagination and artistic license must come in. ;-)
