From announcement to pre-order to release, the new 5th edition of Vampire: The Masquerade is taking no time (even immortal undead hate waiting). Modiphius has started taking pre-orders for the core rulebook (in three versions, depending on how luxurious you want the book to be), as well as Camarilla and Anarch sourcebooks, dice sets, notebooks, and various bundles thereof.
Vampire: The Masquerade is one of those venerable titles in gaming. You might not hear it quite as often as some others, but it’s withstood the test of time and is played by many all over the world. As such, it’s pretty big news when a new edition of it is looking to hit the streets. And that’s just what’s happening this year. The 5th edition will be coming out due to a partnership between White Wolf and Modiphius.
The hectic bustle of Saturday has given way to the smooth calm of Sunday (at least for me). Yesterday I got in some Guild Ball, some Warmachine, and some Ascension. How about you folks?
I think all of us could stand for some bite-sized gaming stories just about now. So let’s get to it.
Today we have: Red Box Games Launch Warbands of the Cold North Kickstarter, Kings of War unofficial historical supplements updated for Kings of War 2nd edition, and New White Wolf Interview.
As you know, recently, White Wolf was purchased. There was a lot of wonder about what sort of direction the company, and the very popular World of Darkness game setting, would go. Well, don’t worry about the setting languishing in developmental back-burners. Oh no, quite the opposite. They’ve posted up a video of what they plan on doing and it’s quite a busy year they’ve got ahead of them.
Well, it seems that Halloween is time for monster-related news of all type. Though this is a bit different than a sale or a new zombie mini. Paradox Interactive has announced that they are purchasing White Wolf Publishing from CCP Games. This means that World of Darkness, Vampire: the Masquerade, and Werewolf: The Apocalypse are now under Paradox’s umbrella. Paradox has said that White Wolf will remain an independent entity with its own dedicated team.
Onyx Path Publishing has released the 2nd edition of the popular RPG, Werewolf: The Forsaken. Originally released by White Wolf, Onyx Path picks up where the story left off. The idigam, spirits from beyond prehistory, are loose, and it’s up to you and your pack to stop them.
So put down that milkbone and get hunting!
