    This is awesome news. Maybe we'll get a new Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines game out of this. I'm optimistic!!! :)

    Selfish Side Note: I started writing for a friend's website so I wrote an article about it. Check it out if you want, don't if you don't want. Up to you. ;)

    Vampire: The Masquerade

    I don't know much about both of these parties, but the chain of words above cast a Trance spell on me :freak:. Must.... resist.... but the prospects are so shiny...

    Have you played Bloodlines?

    If not, get right on that. :P

    Does the bear shit in the woods (unless it's a bear in circus, or a zoo.. maybe a domesticated one?)?

    Oh. I see. Your post seemed cryptic to me. I thought you were talking abut Vampire and The Masquerade not being known to you but you were talking about Paradox and CCP. I get it now. Sorry. :P

    IIRC some original Fallout devs are/were working at White Wolf.
    Either way, great news.

    There's no FPRPG that brings more smiles to NMAers' faces than V:tM-B, I bet.

    I hope Paradox does it right and isn't forced to cut corners like Troika was...

    The people that published Pillars of Eternity? Nice.

    Going forward will they use Old World Of Darkness or new (WOD). Vampire (pnp) underwent some changes post 2000. Clans got dropped or powers changed around etc.

    I said this over at Codex but they should do something with the Hunters. That way you can incorporate all of the various elements into one RPG easy enough.

    The prospects are pretty much slim to none, but I would really like a Kindred of the East game myself, to be perfectly honest.

    EDIT: (slightly) more likely, a Promethean game would also be just as good.

    EDIT2: I've already said this on the codex, but I'll say it again. NO MMOs.

    So, yeah, this news is making me want to play this game again. Already played through with the latest Unofficial Patch so I'm trying something new. Installing the Clan Quest Mod. Never tried it but it runs on Unofficial Patch and Camarilla Lite (which I have used before) so it's the mod that changes the least stuff as far as I can tell. Might do Final Nights at some point, not that ambitious yet. :P

    I also know I have Vampire the Masquerade: Redemption in one of my many boxes somewhere. Was tempted to try that again. Been forever since I played it and it was...okay... :P

    Speaking of which, saw someone suggest the Crusader Kings people make a turn-based successor to Redemption set in the middle ages. Sounds good to me. Would still prefer a new Bloodlines or a spiritual successor or whatever, but yeah, that'd be a good first step to getting the franchise back in the digital arena. Would require less of a budget too.

    A Crusades-Era Vampire game would interest me very much, what with real Brujah and not the rabble they have become.
