  • After much speculation: some new W5 official information

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=2L9Cj3VMHzw

    There you go:

    -11 playable tribes in the crb
    -2 tribes who are no more part of the litany. One because it feels like the Garou nation was not doing it right (Stargazers?) and another who fell to its own rage born out of desperation (Red Talons?)
    -A new condition opposite to harano
    -The umbra becoming much more hostile to werewolves
    -No more metis
    -The notion that the apocalypse has POSSIBLY come and gone and we are now living in a post apocalyptic world… and it’s not what we expected
    -A stronger focus on renown as the core concept of Werewolf

    Thoughts? Opinions? Unbridled rage? Gloomy melancholy?

    A google search will reveal the complicated history of the term and how it is appropriation. The tone here is also dismissive when it has been complained about First Nations gamers as well as Native peoples in general.

    Please leave the thread.

    Apparently some Native American people consider it offensive, even taboo (emphasis on the "apparently", since I don't know this for a fact, I just read this on the forums). Anyway, even if it is really the case, not ALL Native American people that play the game are bothered by the name, so I don't know how big of a deal this really is.

    Whatever Disney did with Star Wars, do the opposite... kkkkk...

    The spectacular successes only happened when the existing fanbase was respected. Ignore what you have to chase what you don't have and it's likely you'll end up empty handed.

    To think that W20 was going so well...

    Well we've seen spectacular successes and horrible failures, as well as a endless treadmill of reboots and revamps of things that used to be cool. So far we've not seen a mainstream success from Parawolf, and I'd be quite wary of applying the same rules of how you build a fanbase for a mainstream property to the RPG's. Their big and brave multi brand initiative has so far created a number of middling computer games, a bunch of promises of big multimedia content and a divisive RPG that caused a international incident and had its dev team buried in the backyard, and didn't even have a big impact on any of the sales charts.

    6 years in it's not looking like the best plan ever.

    RE: Star wars and deleting canon.
    Disney definitely did the right thing in demoting all that expanded universe stuff, especially as they intended to bring the better ideas forth. People tend to remember the greats and forget the awful, and the EU had a lot of awful. If Disney had a half decent replacement for it, it would've been a 10/10 decision. Alas, they shat the bed and the stains will last a hundred years. But if WW wanted to delete the metaplot while keeping with the core game and come up with something better, I'd welcome that.

    That's sad. Matthew certainly knows and loves the game, and seems to seems to communicate well with the fanbase...

    Yep, that's what I meant. Use the idea (the tribes fighting together), expand it (the camp grows into a unified tribe) and change it's name (to respect any religious sensitivities) from Ghost Dance to Ghost Council.

    Ghost Council = Ghost Dance on steroids

Maybe they'll go with this camp's idea and say the two tribes merged into the Ghost Council Tribe because of depleted numbers. It can be interesting and I admit this is a very well thought way to get rid of the Wendigo name.

In fact was going to ask you if you can tell me the name of the people currently working on W5. I just know of Justin Achilli and I guess Matthew Dawkins will be on board, but I know of no one else and I'd like to do some research to know what I can expect. Feel free to private message me if you prefer...

    PM incoming.
