  • Alright, this is an interesting idea for a thread. Here goes nothing...

    The Lasombra and Tzimisce should be in the Camarilla as full fledged Clans. I'm generally for the Camarilla being more inclusive - except for the Assamites ironically. They should have no place in the Camarilla and including them was silly.

    The Giovanni ripped off the Tremere idea. They also shouldn't be a full fledged Clan. Bring back the Cappadocians and make the Giovanni a Bloodline. Oh yeah, and put the Cappadocians in the Camarilla too.

    I don't like crossovers, in fact when playing...

  • I agree with all that you've said here. That doesn't mean that criticizing some elements of the WoD is wrong or that some of those complaints aren't valid, but I think that it is important to not get carried away with our reactions. It's also good for creative people to have the courage to occasionally write things that will make people mad....

  • As has been said, I really did mean WASP as White Anglo-Saxon Protestant, or at least that was the general idea. WW stereotyped some other groups of white people.

  • That sort of thing was nearly ubiquitous in the original WoD material. Native Americans and East Asians got a lot of that treatment too, actually, probably any group which wasn’t pure WASP....

  • This entire tangent about the word "Gypsy" got started because someone suggested that the fact that some people at WW were considering an updated version of World of Darkness: Gypsy was evidence that the people at WW are somehow "Alt-Right" or something along those lines. While I do believe that revisiting that book would be a mistake, neither the consideration nor the original book were in any way right wing nor would they appeal to white racists. The WoD:G book was a work of left leaning people whose writing was very strongly informed by their leftist sensibilities. Of course,...

  • In my opinion, doing it right would probably mean not doing it at all. If I want to learn about the Romani people, I’m sure that there are numerous good resources that aren’t RPG books, especially considering their bad history on the topic....
