World Gets Darker

Ken Cliffe at White Wolf asked me to write an adventure for Ghost Stories, an anthology of short adventures for the upcoming World of Darkness roleplaying game, the core rulebook for their reboot of their original games, Vampire, Werewolf, Mage, and so on. I jumped all over it.

Justin Achilli played mule for Ken and handed me a CD with a PDF of the new rulebook on it while we were at Origins. I read it over last weekend, and it’s good. It’s mathematically more rigorous than the original, and it gracefully streamlines a game system that had grown ornate with rules over the past decade.
