Character Sheet Pad (Vampire: The Requiem) (World of Darkness) (White Wolf, World of Darkness: Combat: The Big Book of Beating Ass by Steve Long, old. dates are not known at this time. WOD: A World of Darkness. WOD: Outcasts: A Players Guide to Pariahs · Bullet-pdf · December 1: WOD: City of. World or Darkness Gypsies are trademarks of White .. shall learn a great deal more of your heritage than We are an ancient people, and we have many.

Book of the Dead Think the Book of Spirits mixed with Geist and the result is poured into a sourcebook. The Mirrors supplements and Translation Guides Modifications for the Storytelling System itself as well as hints on adapting it for different genres the former while the latter guides allowed mix-and-match rules from the three main game-lines of oWoD and nWoD. It's notable that the Guides not only go through the crunch but also have chapters with suggestions of how you might fluffwise justify having one nWoD Mage order here or an cWoD tribe of Werewolves there for both New and Classic World of Darkness games.

So if you for example really miss Clan Tzimisce in Vampire: The Requiem or think Requiem did the Nosferatu better but you still wanna run Vampire: The Masquerade, have a look in the Vampire Translation Guide and you'll get separate chapters covering both the fluff and the crunch for porting them over from Masquerade into Requiem or vice versa.

Expect lesbian stripper ninjas, katanas and trenchcoats, magical gays, a more traditional XP system and loot drops from everyone you kill. It's a good laugh and might make for the ideal supplement if you're into that sort of game.

Unfortunately White Wolf started to take itself way too seriously since and we'll never see a supplement like this one again. Since the advent of Chronicles of Darkness only a few core books have been released specifically for that ruleset: Dark Eras A page behemoth of a tome detailing a variety of historical settings in which you can play Chronicles of Darkness.

From the advent of the world where you play werewolves babysitting humanity so that it won't get eaten by the monsters of the wild, all the way up to to werewolves in the New York of the 70s.

Contains settings for every gameline out there, but they are rather fixed: so if you want to play a Hunter during the Great War or a Mage during the fall of Constantinople you're out of luck. Hurt Locker A book on pain and violence, as well as a half-dozen templates to make normal mortals a bit more attuned to violence.

It takes a rather mature take on violence and injury You can defuse a violent situation by getting punched in the face then telling your attacker that he just hurt a fellow human being and that he must feel terrible about it. The Contagion Chronicle[ edit ] Formerly referred to as The Crossover Chronicle, this series will add a new set of chronicle hooks, potential settings, and cross-template factions geared specifically around allowing parties composed of multiple types of supernatural beings to cooperate without killing each other.

Details on the metaplot are fuzzy right now, but the basic premise seems to revolve around the various supernatural being forced to form new alliances with each other in the hope of fighting against the mysterious force known only as the Contagion, which is threatening to destroy the fabric of reality itself.

Vampire: The Requiem 13 Clans with fleshed out, restricting histories become 5 clans with vague, open-ended histories and multiple Bloodlines sub-clans.

The Camarilla becomes 5 Covenants with mutually exclusive goals. Arguably the biggest difference is that you can't just make someone a Vampire by draining them and feeding them your blood, now you have to permanently spend a dot of Willpower to do it.

An alternate setting in ancient Rome also exists, which contains a history of the Carmarilla and how it collapsed with the rest of the Roman Empire.

Additionally, a new set of antagonists in the form of the Strix, which are demonic owl-like creatures bent on purging every last trace of Humanity from vampire society to the point where even a Humanity 0 vampire is too human for them and can possess corpses and vampires to lash out at mortals and undead alike.

Werewolf: The Forsaken A slightly more "balanced" version of Werewolf. You can't run around in 8-foot tall invincible war-form all the time, and you see humans as a flock of idiotic sheep that you have to protect from malicious spirits due to a vow sworn by your ancient ancestors as punishment for divine patricide.

The "adjustments" resulted, possibly intentionally, in the average werewolf no longer being a match for the average vampire, a criticism invariably met with statements regarding the relative level of coordination between werewolf packs and vampire coteries. It is written in novel format for ease of reading, played over Skype. Mechanically simplified and involving more magic usage than M:tAsc , M:tA's biggest criticism is that it doesn't have as compelling a plot — specifically, the revised political landscape is the most frequent target of attack.

You're a scorned mockery of humanity, most likely abandoned by your creator, left to fend for yourself in a world that wants you dead. You're perpetually dazed and confused, always trying to pick up the ways of humans, but that's not happening because you have a disquieting aura that makes every sentient being in the world eventually hate you and the places you stay in will turn into an uninhabitable hellhole if you linger too long, so you can never make real friends and have to live as a nomad.

Only five books long, but it pretty much covers all the bases. Surprisingly, it's actually rather optimistic since in theory you can make like Pinocchio and become a true human under the right circumstances. Changeling: The Lost No longer are the Changelings faeries, but humans kidnapped by the True Fae and twisted into something not quite mortal. Managed to do the exact opposite of its predecessor and sell enough copies that they extended the series instead of cutting it short.

It completed its run with nine books and a long-awaited web enhancement. Hunter: The Vigil Hunter, without the ridiculously overpowered gifts. You're just an average Joe with more information than other people, and on occasion ties to people with some special toys that let you use powers that can border on the supernatural themselves.

For instance, you might channel the power of your demonic heritage to smite people with hellfire, you might have bullets that are extra-effective against vampires, or you might have access to religious rites that bless your weapons with the power to hurt ghosts. That, and you can break every conceivable human moral code without going insane, provided you can justify it in light of your "Vigil.

Well-known for its antagonists - Slashers - who are the World of Darkness take on serial killers. Once again had "lite" versions of all the other supernaturals, which tended to be more singularly powerful than the real thing, but not as versatile or player-character-friendly.

Geist: The Sin-Eaters People who die and have ghosts decide to resurrect them, getting stuck with said ghost riding shotgun to said person's body and giving them all manner of powers depending on the way the first party died, all to accomplish the ghost's goals.

Instead of humanity, you have "synergy" which is how in sync you are with your spirit. The Underworld is finally fleshed out, but somehow far more foreboding than expected. But the city is dead and gone, and the Sorcerers who made you into what you are now live in the lands of the dead and tell you what to do. Most Arisen remain active for about four months, at best. And then they have to come back to life and do it all over again. From the God Machine Chronicle, and the start of the core book?

Yeah, turns out it has robo-angels. Sometimes, one of them decides it doesn't particularly enjoy its function. Or it fails to perform. Or ends up getting saddled with an order it can't actually carry out. Instead of returning they go on the lam, becoming 'demons'. The God Machine sends its angels looking. You don't want to go back, so you become a robot secret agent, pretending as hard as you can to be human while ruining the occult plans of the Divine Calculator; luckily, you retain the ability to hack reality thanks to your former connection to the God Machine.

The angels are still Cthulhu-robots in service to the Fortunately Demons are very good at hiding their true identities- so good that even supernatural beings and other demons, at that matter can't see through their disguises if they don't want to reveal themselves. Beast: The Primordial The most recently published game, and another one with absolutely no tie to the Old World of Darkness.

The setting can only be described as the modern world, but worse in every aspect. Every creeping suspicion you have is probably true, and the world is as dirty and corrupt as it often seems to be.

In the old World of Darkness , each game was meant to be played separately; as a result the games often had conflicting metaplots and, despite using the same basic "Storyteller System", were incompatible when it came to various supernatural powers.

The release of a new World of Darkness with an updated ruleset, the "Storytelling System" features a core book that contains the basic rules for all the games, and focuses on normal human beings in horrific situations that may or may not be supernatural in nature.

The new games interact in a modular fashion and also have little established fluff, making it more malleable for Storytellers the in-game term for GM ; abbreviated as ST.

Series: World of Darkness

The new line has also been trying to avoid the old Gothic feel for which it was known specifically with Vampire: The Masquerade in favor of a slightly more traditional form of horror. As of December it has been renamed Chronicles of Darkness to allow its setting to exist separately from that of the setting of the relaunched oWoD which is itself now called Classic World of Darkness or cWoD.

The basic system in both the new and old World of Darkness revolves around a dicepool of d10 's. Your dice pool consists of a number of dice equal to your relevant ability score plus your skill and other relevant modifiers. A success is a roll of that difficulty or higher 7 or above, on most rolls.

A roll of 1 is called a botch. If any number of 1's are rolled, they cancel out a single success. No more than one success can be cancelled out in this way, so critical failures A botch with zero successes are relatively rare. The net number of successes determines how well you succeed, with one success meaning that you are barely able and a greater number indicating better achievement. When you get zero net successes if you get no successes or if your 1s cancel out your successes, or if you get at least one success and more ones than successes , you fail the roll.

When you get zero successes and at least one 1, you botch-- a critical and spectacular failure. If you have a specialty in either your attribute or ability that is relevant on the roll, you may reroll all 10s to gain extra successes, and rolls of 1 on these rerolls do not count. A critical success is made when you get five or more successes. Instead of altering the target number of the roll, difficulty and circumstances increase or reduce the number of dice in the pool.

When your dice pool is reduced to zero or less, you get a chance die.

You roll the die normally, but only succeed on a ten which still explodes and if you get a one you get a critical failure. All other rolls are called simple failures, although any simple failure can be turned into a critical failure by the player in return for bonus Beats basically XP.

These books are, in order of release:.

World of Darkness

Since the advent of Chronicles of Darkness only a few core books have been released specifically for that ruleset:. Formerly referred to as The Crossover Chronicle, this series will add a new set of chronicle hooks, potential settings, and cross-template factions geared specifically around allowing parties composed of multiple types of supernatural beings to cooperate without killing each other.

Details on the metaplot are fuzzy right now, but the basic premise seems to revolve around the various supernatural being forced to form new alliances with each other in the hope of fighting against the mysterious force known only as the Contagion, which is threatening to destroy the fabric of reality itself. Even without getting into the specifics of each game's interpretation of one archetype say, Masquerade vs.

Requiem for vampires , the two games are very different beasts. World of Darkness takes place in a "Gothic Earth". Which basically amounts to an 80s-style at least in 1e grimdark interpretation of the world; monstrous conspiracies are involved in most major events except World War 2, for some reason , the "Neo-Gothic" art style is popular so there's lots of gargoyles and stuff everywhere, all forms of crimes are up, and the world is just generally a very shitty sort of place to live.

World of Darkness books

Humans are generally unimportant; sheep to be fed on by vampires, slaughtered by werewolves, pushed around by mages Even Hunters are only viable as a threat because they have some supernatural patron giving them all kinds of nifty powers specifically to fight monsters. Or probably was a powerful Celestine with influence around Middle-East.

This doesn't mean that this setting, old World of Darkness, shortened as "oWoD", didn't have its merits. The struggle between Technocracy and Traditions had amazing locations, technologies and ways to make a game session fun, vampires themselves had a long and rich history and full scale war between sects, and bloodlines themselves granted an exotic and diverse Fluff.

However, said separate games, like Vampire and Mage, overlap each other's territories so badly it's illogical not to clash with each other.

We have Technocracy on one hand, that has a mission to root out "Reality Deviants", and have technologies that border and cross to supernatural, yet Technocracy protected the world from the vampires' depradations ONCE, yes, just ONCE around the 90's. We have wars of Tzimisce and Tremere across the streets of Medieval Europe like its the Lord of the Rings on crack cocaine with a cast of freaks, yet mages and their ilk, plus mortal rulers SOMEHOW ignore the supernatural conflict, which is even funnier in modern era with insane levels of Sabbat atrocities across the world ignored by virtually every non-vampire organization which number in the millions and have missions that concern the welfare of the people.

For example, with the power Technocracy is wielding and that's not even saying Traditions by themselves are weak , how can Sabbat conduct horrid festivals in EVERY major city named La Palle Grande, kidnapping hundreds of girls and conducting snuff festivals on open techno parties with elaborate torture theatre without alerting the Technocrats, Mages, Werewolves, one of the millions of Hunter organisations, Celestines, some random Spirit, a sympathetic fairy, the President and Your Mom?

How can Camarilla apply mass blackouts and downloadouts of presidents without the NWO coming down on a bunch of bloodsuckers? Every year? Unless the readers liked to fap to Hostel 2 bloodbath faggotry, it simply doesn't make sense to put it. And that's just about the consistent Fluff, not the conflicting ones.

Here is an example concerning Gilgamesh, a Sumerian king And that's without even mentioning the End Times chronicles, which are impossible to play out without fucking the lore in the ass concerning a neighboring setting. Mage's End Times Scenario Hell on Earth simply ignores every other gadzillions of lore and creatures with one Nephandus Nephandi are Mages who are edginess incarnate destroying everything.

That's it.Croatan Song by Bill Bridges. Xerxes Adrianopolous. Breathe Deeply by Don Bassingthwaite. Gary, Indiana is a dying city. Like that book I want to download this one also the premium heavyweight Of the many Kindred who once hunted this small Midwestern city, only a handful remains. Thieves in the Night by White Wolf Publishing.

For better or worse depends on how you look at it. World of Darkness.
