Welcome to World of Darkness Online News!

I am your host Harlequin Shadowlands and I welcome to you this little corner of the net. Where I hope as I did, when I ran for over 3 yrs, it becomes a stopping ground for the latest news, rumor and community information on the upcoming WoD MMORPG currently in development.

We are still under construction as you can see and not officially open/public but feel free to poke around, register a account as there are many more aspects to the site you can participate in if you have a account.

Any questions or feedback feel free to send me a private message or use the Email Us link on the main menu. Post in the forums as well for general comments, discussion.

Hope you come back often...

Is there really a White Wolf Vampire MMORPG in development?
By Harlequin @ 7:02 PM :: 14 Views :: 1 Comments :: :: WoD News

This is the most pressing question.. and here is the post dated Nov 16 2006 from Will, a WW staffer. It is pretty clear, you can also read it at its source.

This didn't happen at Gen Con. Things were already in motion, by then.

We've been working on MMO-related stuff for a while, ranging from brainstorming to some serious design work, though nothing you'd really call "preproduction" by any means. It's not like we're just getting started now that the legal paperwork is done.

CCP is not making the MMO. WE are making the MMO -- CCP and White Wolf, together.

The MMO is not intended as a replacement for the paper RPG. Right now, we're committed to both projects as aspects of our larger, ongoing virtual world -- the World of Darkness. Likewise, we're hoping EVE will get similar treatment, becoming a deeper setting through both MMO and paper-RPG play. The only reason I think we'll abandon paper RPGs is if you abandon us first.

The MMO will not be the paper RPG online. MMOs and paper RPGs need different things to do what they do well. We're planning on making a great MMO and a great paper RPG, without forcing either to do the other's bidding.



Also here are more links to dev interviews talking about how they can't about the WoD MMORPG...

Need Photoshop Pro...
By Harlequin @ 7:42 PM :: 1 Views :: 0 Comments :: :: Site News

Or any one skilled in any image editing software. We need some quick work on the side/top banners. Some V:tM or even better V:tR image to replace the place holders we got.

The side image has to be 216x600, larger and it gets clipped off. The top image can be more or less any size but clearly you do not want it too large.

Any help on this appreciated, feel free to PM or email me if you have questions. Thank you!
