  • Bloodlines characters/events in V5?

    The Voerman sisters have been... well, "canonized" creates a rather misleading impression... in V5. And the events of Bloodlines (the Anarch ending, anyway), would make a perfect jumping-off point for a resurgent Anarch Free State in L.A.

    But one of the latest podcasts mentioned that the Bloodlines characters were (c) Activision. Does anyone know if WW are bringing any other Bloodlines elements into the V5 line?

    No, I don't, although there is a reference to 'innumerable Bloodlines' that exist, so they are still there, just not detailed (yet?).

      Well, the events were never NOT canon, weren't they?

        Individual elements have to be approved individually. If White Wolf feel there will be merit to getting that consent from Activision each time, then it's possible.

          How does that work? Do you need to ask permission to use a character every time you use them in a different book? Or if you get permission once you can use them in any book?

            If it works like standard licensing stuff, you'd get an agreement to use them for a particular period or time or a particular number of releases, or an indefinite period, depending on what was negotiated. No use like that would EVER make sense to do it on a book-by-book basis.

              It kind of bugs me that Activision ended up with the rights rather than White Wolf when it was Troika who created everything.
