I am a big of Vampire: The Masquerade and have a Toreador vampire character that I play. I also have a Gurahl (werebear) character that goes along with the Werewolf the Apocalypse universe. I love their style of dark fantasy/horror and the emphasis on character creation.

I've noticed a lot of people who have been introduced to the RP through the Bloodlines video game, which is cool because I liked the game.

Is there anyone here who really likes it? Most specifically the actual RP. I'm more a fan of old World of Darkness than Requiem and all that newer stuff.

I'm a big fan of new WoD but didn't play the old edition stuff.

Classic World of Darkness (Vampire the Masquerade, Werewolf the Apocalypse, Mage the Ascension, Wraith the Oblivion, Changeling the Dreaming, Hunter the Reckoning) etc. is my pet. I never liked Requiem especially when Toreador was removed because I always play my Toreador vampire. It wasn't the same and made me sad. I write a lot of VTM fiction on my computer. I feel like an esoteric nerd, though, because not a lot of people are familiar with WoD.

Turns out I work with the mother of one of the lead book writers/game devs for the current vampire release. That was rather mind-boggling, it came out by accident. I went online, and there was her blog, releasing errata and game mods and power refinements. Wow.

That is so amazing! I would want to pepper her with all sorts of questions about the game!
I had been wondering if I could meet her, but I'm on the east coast and she's been bouncing between her mom's and the west coast + she seems kind of reclusive to me.

But it was so bizarre -- her mom out of the blue goes, "Yeah, my daughter helps write RPG games" and I'm like "Which ones?" and she's like, "Oh, you know something about them? I don't know much, but it's that vampire game for White Wolf," and I'm like, "NO WAY, I'm currently PLAYING in a Worlds of Darkness campaign," so I googled her daughter online and found her blog and yup, Vampire The Requiem. Pretty wild.

There is something kind of wonderful about a reclusive vampire author.

So she's into Requiem versus VTM?

Well, she's a (or was, I haven't played for about a year) game rule writer for Requiem. I assume VTM has someone else writing material.
