    Help where to start in World of Darkness?

    Hi everyone, so I've never played a World of Darkness game, but I am growing more interested in them. I've read a few of the books about a decade ago: World of Darkness, Mage: the Awakening, and Hunter: the Vigil. I enjoyed reading them many years ago, but I haven't been keeping up with the...

    [Chronicles of Darkness] Discrepancies in the Social Maneuvering Rules for the Game Lines

    I just noticed the rules for Social Maneuvering are somewhat different in all of the CofD rulebooks. Social Maneuvering is CofD's equivalent of combat: the standard way of rolling in 1e is now the equivalent of Down and Dirty Combat. However, many of the game books fail to explain when you are...

    [Bundle of Holding] Rundown of Chronicles of Darkness vs. oWoD

    I've been looking at the current BoH offer on Chronicles of Darkness but I'm not sure it's a good buy for me yet. I used to have a fair few oWoD core books (Vampire, Werewolf, Mage, Wraith) and some supplements, all of which I gave away during an RPG clear out. Is there a relatively concise...

    [VtR 2e] So... what do you do?

    I've been invited to participate in a VtR2e game. I know VtM, and I am passingly familiar with the rules of VtR, but the ins and outs of what vampires are up to in the new World of Darkness is unknown to me. So what do Kindred get up to in the Modern Nights?

    For Sale [USA] Various FIRST edition "NEW" World of Darkness titles

    I am selling my collection of FIRST edition New World of Darkness titles. Willing to sell them individually or in a package deal. Make me an offer, taking into consideration the fact that you will have to pay for shipping and books are heavy. These books run the gamut between "good" and "like...

    A question from a decade ago - why was the nWoD considered a 'toolkit'?

    The start of my time on RPGnet roughly coincides with when my gaming group decided to give the WOD a try after stopping playing DnD or freeform games, a little bit after nMage was released. Around that time, and looking back at the hosted reviews, it seems that nWoD was often described as a...

    Introducing The Lightning Chronicle

    I have recently been working on a fairly comprehensive setting/theme hack for Promethean that also features some mechanical alterations. The goal of The Lightning Chronicle is to remove the dominance of the Pilgrimage and becoming human. The New Dawn is similar to Golconda or Hell in DtD: it's...

    [Chronicles of Darkness] What's not in the free supplement

    I have an academic interest in the chronicles of darkness rules and I was wondering what am I missing with my current library of the (new) World of Darkness rule book and the free God machine chronicles rules update. I also own all the world of darkness books like mirrors, armory, second sight...

    [Mage] What do you do? [Both Awakening and Ascension]

    In Vampire you're part of a clan, and there's lots of political back stabbing and social warfare. There's badder guys, the sabbat and you strive against (or perhaps not) the beast. What do you do in Mage, what's its thing? Specifically the latest version on Mage

    [nWoD / CofD] How important is the Chronicles of Darkness corebook?

    I purchased the WoD core book a week or two before CoD was released, and I'm loathe to drop another $20 on a book of mechanics. I have Demon, which has an extensive rules revision section in the back. Is that sufficient to get by in a Chronicles game?

    [nWoD/CofD] Geist: The Sin-Eaters Rewrite

    Short version: Geist: The Sin-Eaters is a great concept of an RPG, but the execution for the game mechanics is horrendous. I actually found out recently from someone with social ties to the old White Wolf company that, due to deadlines, what when to press was exactly what I had...

    [Mage: the Awakening 2nd] What Skill(s) are for psychiatry/psychology?

    So, in a possibly underwhelmingly creative move, I'm making my repeated psychology and psychiatry student drop-out into a Warlock. But I'm not sure what Skill pr Skills properly represent the scientific understanding of the human mind. Science might be okay, except it covers everything sciency...

    [Mage: the Awakening] How do fledgling cabals form, in-setting?

    So, as I mentioned in another thread, I'm currently in the planning stages of my second Mooj the Awooj game, which is also my first with this particular group of players, who are all new to the system (and most of whom are new-ish to the World of Darkness in general, as well). A perennial...

    [nWoD] Siren the Surfacing Fansplat Ressurection

    Hello everyone. I've been on these forums for quite abit, mostly lurking and on the PtH thread. I've loved the idea of nWoD fangames that have sprung up here and on the Onyx Path Forums. But I've found a few splats have slowly died down through their development, and I feel that these games have...

    CofD vs. NWoD - Sell/Unsell Me

    I've been a big fan of the NWoD since it began, and I have collected most of the books for its various product lines (my bibliophilia is stage four). I love just about all of it, warts and all. After recently purchasing the Chronicles of Darkness core, I find myself wondering if I really want to...

    💯 {Staff Pick} [nWoD2/CofD] Stuff that bugs me

    I generally like the Chronicles of Darkness (formerly known as "World of Darkness, Second Edition"). I think the new editions have done a lot to improve the games both mechanically and stylistically, but god-damn some of this stuff disappoints or annoys me and I have to complain about it. I...

    [Mage: the Awakening 2e] Let's talk about Mysteries.

    So I'm in the middle of planning a new Mage game - my second MtAw game ever, and my first stab at the new 2e - and this thread and this one have kind of crystallized a thought that I've had bouncing around in my head for a while: I'm not sure how to make a good Mage mystery. I was hoping for...

    [W:tF Setting Riff] The Lunar Interregnum

    So, one of the most interesting things (to me anyway) about the CoD spirit world has always been how unsentimentally Darwinian it is, and especially how that extends to the more powerful spirits. That is, the Spirit of the Thames is not powerful because it's the Spirit of the Thames. Instead...

    Chronicles of darkness: "normal" experience rate?

    I am currently running a world of darkness game, using parts of the god machine chronicle update. I want to use all the rules, but I have a fairly demanding job, so I'm learning bits of the rules through play as well as by reading. We tend to have a number of scenes in the game without dice...
