Tell me this is not true. Please, for the love of all the Gods, Demons, Fallen, Werewolves, Changelings, Vampires, Antedeluvians, Wraith, Mummies, and all treatures of WoD that the MMO will not target 18-25 girls.

WoD is supposed to be a dark, inhuman place, not a playground for all those goth wannabees.

Goth girls & rock chics are the best.

But given the number of female avatars in EVE, good luck finding a real one in WOD

No denying that, I like them myself, very much, but I dont really think that they could pull of something like VtM:Bloodlines was. And WoD players are predominantly male, as are EVE players, and honestly, I fear that WoD could become seriously toned down abnd fluffied up, seeing as what passes as goth these days.


Man, I am grumpy today.

Same here. I loved it :)

Simple rules, easy to play and easy to GM.

Lots of fun no "rule bikering" like in D&D.

Maybe a wormhole opens up into the star trek universe and we get to shoot klingons or the borg

On further thought into this, i think it would be really sweet if there was a cross over. Capsuleers vs Star trek captains. kinda mute since we have clones

As this thread is now about WoD, anyone interested in a play-by-mail session in which all characters _must_ have non-humainty etchical paths?

It should clearly open up into the Pegasus galaxy - the Wraith have clones too :)

It's a reasonably good simile to convey to a lay audience the scale of the ships we command. I didn't read it as "the ships look just like" the Enterprise.

Actually, I thought the article was surprisingly good. Necessarily, it hugely simplified the nature of the game, but it described EvE very well to it's intended audience. It's good publicity for CCP too.

Gosh it almost made me think that this is a for profit endeavour that makes each and every decision based on how much coin it will generate for the shareholders regardless of whether you're a carebear or a pirate. Geee what were the odds?

I find this fact very disturbing...should I? Shocked
