Ok-- I'm torn here. I used to Larp White Wolf (yes, I know, throw toast now) a hell of a lot. I loved a lot about the old World of Darkness, hated a lot of it too. But I left it back before the Big Shit Hit the Fan and they re-vamped all the sourcebooks.
If the right players come together on this, I'll jump in, both feet. But I will need some serious help.
Ignore this next bit if you like, not wanting to discuss it, just... trying to communicate my opinion, if it's of any bearing here.
First of all: My favorite was Wraith. I also have very little experience with it in a game setting, so shit on that. My second was Werewolf, but FUCK THAT if it's all tribe/gift structured because SOME of that shit made no sense at all. AT. ALL. Third was Vampire... great fun, mad cheese, retarded abuse of structure. No desire to ever play a prince again... three years is enough. Last was Mage. FUCK mage. Below last was Changeling... don't even want to think about it. And, in some remote corner away from everything else was Hunter... great premise, poor mechanics, not enough godly powers to get the mountain-dew chugging brats of the world out there buying up all the books.[/RANT!!!mode]
*SIGH* Ok feeling better now.
If I'm invited to be a part of this development, I'd like to stress that I really like the darkness, the horror, the mystery, and even to some degree the idea that everyone's the puppet in a great big punch-and-judy show for the powers that be.
From the very little bit I've heard about Promentheans... I would love to learn more about that, by the way... I may be interested in playing one of them, but... as with most games... what matters here isn't the mechanics, the monsters... it's the setting and the characters, it's the PREMISE. Right along with you on the FEEL of this world, Brandon. But if all else fails, we could potentially just throw something together, stealing what ideas we want.
