  • Handing v5 to modiphius was a mistake.

    All of Modiphiu's v5 books are late. They don't do previews. In their Fall of London stream,one of the writers forgot the rules of game.
    White wolf should keep doing it internally or handing it over to opp,only those two truly know the World of Darkness.

        “People who knew the IP” defended a rapist and published offensive enough content to get their company dissolved. I’m happy to see new blood.

            So what are 'all' and 'late' here actually based on, when Modiphius haven't actually released anything of their own yet, and the release date hasn't yet hit?

            At last report, Modiphius said Fall of London and the Vampire Player's Guide would get advance PDFs by Christmas 2019, and full release by February 2020. These would be their first releases as licensees; the V5 core, Anarchs and Camarilla were done in-house by WW and released through Modiphius.

These would be their first releases as licensees; the V5 core, Anarchs and Camarilla were done in-house by WW and released through Modiphius.

                In the original announcement from Dec 20,2018 Modiphius communicated a much more optimistic timeline, Initially, they estimated a Summer 2019 release date for both the Player's Guide and the Fall of London Chronicle. The Starter Set was announced for Christmas 2019, and the Second Inquisition sourcebook for Summer 2020.

                On July 9, 2019 Modiphius communicated an update telling us that the Player's Guide and the Fall of London Chronicle should be available as physical products in Feb 2020, and we would get advance PDFs before Christmas 2019.

                Because of this update, people are probably talking about a delay.

                Without wanting to be too unkind to Modiphius, they are very often late in the RPG department. I think the only games that were published on time have been Star Trek Adventures and V5 for Gen Con 2018, but V5 was not developed by Modiphius at that time. But in their defense, other companies are also regularly running late on schedule. The only exceptions seem to be WotC, Monte Cook Games, and Paizo. And even Paizo goofed up on some of the PF2 releases scheduled for GenCon this year.

                If the advance PDF for the Player's Guide arrives around Christmas time, I'll be very satisfied. Really looking forward to the Tzimisce.

                  I too would have liked a V5 developed by Onyxpath, but I doubt Modiphius could do more harm than White Wolf even if they tried deliberately.

                        They changed the original release date. I hate when companies do that

                          Yknow what is the problem with making a mistake is? The Mistake is all everyone remembers. The three ww books are gorgeously illustrated, brilliantly written and are some of the best piece of vampire fiction published by anyone . Yet people are acting like the offensive stuff which was a accident was all there is to it. Its unfair

                            Also it's not Parawolf. Not Nww. Not "new" white wolf. It's White Wolf. Those names are just an attempt to delegitimize the company and making them something they are not,they are White Wolf simple as that.

                              But what the hell. I think I'll stop complaining and I'll wait to see if modiphius' books are actually good. Until then,everyone.
