World of Darkness – Ep28

World of Darkness – Ep28

Behind the scenes, the Ventrue pulled the strings.

In the early 1990’s a publisher named White Wolf created a campaign world called the World of Darkness. This setting, and the games in it like Vampire the Masquerade and Werewolf the Apocalypse, became a mainstay for gamers that were tired of the passé and people who were new to gaming that wanted something that they could grasp on to.

 

We talk about this setting, the games incorporated in it, the company that produced it and the fans that turned on it.
