  • Nu-White Wolf considering a new edition of Wraith

    So from the official nuWW Facebook, apparently they are considering a new edition of Wraith after Wr20...



    Oh boy, I can't wait to hear their explanation of how the Underworld/Dark Kingdoms come back from being magick-nuked.

    Those are great news, but I'm still holding my breath on seeing what they are going to do for Mage without Phil Brucato (who, as far as I know, is not working with White Wolf). Additionally, will this open the doors for a new edition of Changeling: the Dreaming?

      IF we assume every 2 years between lines... so 2020 werewolf, 2022 Mage, so... 2024?

              ...wouldn't they have already received money to begin with?

              --------------------------------------------------
              So yeah...they probably are going to do some retconning with the spirit-nuke. Since in WoD5e didn't retcon the Week of Nightmares, however, it probably won't be completely removing that it happened. At best, just that it didn't do as much damage to result in completely destroying the Underworld.

              Now the funny thing being that the sweeping changes made to the setting in V5...some of them would make more sense

              Dramatically changing the wraith factions. While I've only just started with Wraith as of Wr20, I'm left with the impression that no one is as...attached to the Hierarchy, Renegades, and Heretics the same way people are to the Camarilla, Anarchs, and Sabbat. So the idea of, say, the Hierarchy being in complete shambles but Renegades and Heretics having even more power is more palatable.

              Cities/necropoli being more cut off and isolated. From my read through in Wr20 corebook, I'm left with the impression that the necropoli generally keep to themselves and didn't talk a lot to other nearby necropoli. That they generally kept to themselves doing their own thing. So an individual necropolis being on their own makes more sense.

              And in the end, fresh wraiths have to go SOMEWHERE.

                REALLY curious to see how they modify the different lines with the 5th edition model to the rules. In particular, I'm curious to see how they handle the Shadow.

                  Hunger Dice are basically a modified form of Shadow Dice but without the benefit. I hope they keep Shadow Dice as is.

                  A setting either post- or during the Sixth Great Maelstrom might be very interesting. I always thought The Great War was produced to give us a clue to how death might be during or after the 6GM.

                    Honestly, I'd like a newer take on how to handle the Shadow that is more mechanically based. Not to say I want to take away from the RP of the Shadow, and I like the Shadow as it is, but I've had too many players that feel intimidated by the idea of needing a Shadow Guide that it would help with getting more players if I didn't have to worry about that. Wr20 gave a suggestion for it but I think even that is more of a bandaid than a solution.

                      The Shadowguide is sort of integral to the game, though. It's easy enough to hand those duties over to the Storyteller if players don't want to do it.

                        I don't think it's a leak (since a dev has already sketched the book's outline) to say that Book of Oblivion will include some interesting and varied Necropoli.

                        Hmm.
