Default White Wolf is out of the game

Looks like white wolf has had a bad year and so they are going to be closing down World of darkness.com This was sent out to subscribers of White Wolf's online book reader service. White Wolf will be folded into their parent company Paradox. Additionally, they are also looking for a brand manager

And I was just hoping for a rebirth of the WoD/WW in the form we knew it during the golden age thereof.

Also ironic that WW, which gained much of its street cred from writing stuff considered outrageous at the time, has also been brought down by outrage when the tables have turned.

Yeah, that would be them. I believe they bought WW from CCP (Eve Online), who bought WW in 2005ish.

I'd just gotten back into playing WoD games, but their adversity and fragmentation sent me exploring and I ended up here. A friend had given me a slew of GURPS books some years back, I'd never used, so maybe now's the time to give them a whirl.

By fragmentation you mean the splitting produced by the Chronicles of Darkness? What do you refer to as adversity in this context?

So, that's sad. I hope that they figure this all out. I have a lot of nostalgia around White Wolf games. As a 2nd year grad student, I desperately needed a break from studying for the Prelim A exams for a PhD in Genetics. I ended up walking down the street to the FLGS and picking up a copy of GURPS Basic, and GURPS Vampire:The Masquerade (3rd Ed). I gave myself 10 minutes of just looking at all of this gamer stuff I bought before shifting back to studying. Before the end of 5, my entire grad class was assembled behind me asking if I would be running a game for them when Prelims were done.

I did. I ran a long running GURPS Vampire campaign with my grad class and their respective boy/girlfriends, including my girlfriend-- now my wife-- who was also in the same department.

Great game world to play in. Wish them the best.
