    Is Anyone Still Playing Vampire 5th Edition?

    I aim to fix that hopefully And I've ran a few one-shots IRL back in the day.

    Is Anyone Still Playing Vampire 5th Edition?

    Nah, it's 3e. Revised was Third Edition, not Second. You want specific titles from 1st Edition and 2nd Edition that are more T&K and less "woe is me" personal horror wangst? Elysium: The Elder Wars Dirty Secrets of the Black Hand (at this point, it's only hated because WW/Onyx Path has spent...

    Is Anyone Still Playing Vampire 5th Edition?

    Mainly because White Wolf and forums like RPG.net have been demonizing that playstyle for the better part of two decades and declaring it to be "the wrong way to play". It used to be one of the main playstyles back in the day, otherwise you wouldn't have a lot of the 2nd Edition books that came...

    Is Anyone Still Playing Vampire 5th Edition?

    1. Some of the LARP'ers are the ones I'm on good terms with. The others who I'm on bad terms with are the ones I insulted. 2. Mark Rein-Hagen was probably wanting to have his cake and eat it too when it came to "Personal Horror vs. Cool Badasses" at the time Years later, when he was older and...

    Is Anyone Still Playing Vampire 5th Edition?

    Part of my views on the history of Vampire comes from reading the actual books from 1st Edition and early 2nd Edition and how starkly different they were from the Achilli era or the later stuff from Nu-White Wolf and Onyx Path. Reading 1E, it really feels like MRH wasn't entirely sure what he...

    Is Anyone Still Playing Vampire 5th Edition?

    Actually, my own "peculiar take" on Vampire didn't emerge until after I had my disagreements with the pretentious goth LARP'ers.

    Is Anyone Still Playing Vampire 5th Edition?

    True, and that cuts both ways. Especially with all the revisionism on the part of later iterations of White Wolf and Onyx Path

    I was a total noob to the new system and I picked it up fairly easily. Granted, I have a really good GM who easily walked me through character creation

    BESM

    I have! I've been playing a weekly game on Discord with a homebrew fantasy setting. As a player, it's pretty good. Character creation takes a little longer than BESM 1st Edition but that edition was notoriously barebones. I don't know what it's like to GM BESM 4E, but as a player, it's pretty...

    Is Anyone Still Playing Vampire 5th Edition?

    Justin Achilli worked on Third Edition/Revised Edition for the most part. He hated Second Edition and First Edition and used the metaplot in Revised to wreck all the shit he didn't like. Achilli's only real major contribution for 2nd Edition was Clanbook Giovanni, which was unusually decent for...

    Is Anyone Still Playing Vampire 5th Edition?

    Well, I also like 2nd Edition as well V20 is good because it's thematically and metaplot neutral I've actually read V1 and I find it to be a lot closer to the "trenchcoats and katanas" than the shitty pretentious mess of V5. The difference is that V1 paid lip service to "personal horror" and...

    Is Anyone Still Playing Vampire 5th Edition?

    I really shouldn't be posting this, but I need to get it off my chest. Fuck Clan Hecate. It's a bullshit clan and I honestly prefer the Giovanni to that goth Wiccan bullshit and it's bad enough what they did to the Ravnos and the other clans. Seriously, I really do feel like V5 is a disgrace...

    I've been trying to get into writing original fiction but man, I suck at it. I need to hone my skills but I just can't seem to get it.

    Real Life and What's Happening...

    Been trying to get back into writing by focusing on original fiction instead of fanfiction and I've been realizing I'm doing it all wrong. Like, I know I'm a bad writer but I've been making a lot of rookie mistakes left and right since I've started trying it again. Apparently, it's considered...

    Wizards of the Coast for Sale?

    Why not both? I'd like to see that. Hell, I'd be glad to work for WOTC if it was run and staffed by guys from the Pub Not gonna lie, I've honestly contemplated the idea of using crowdfunding to buy the IP or at least the license to Chronicles of Darkness from Paradox. Not as a joke, not as a...
