The World of Darkness Storytelling System has been around for quite a while, and with the recent release of the awesome God-Machine Chronicle the core rules have received a pretty extensive rules update and revision.
The rules changes range from minor to pretty large overhauls of the entire subsystems including Combat and the creation of a Social Maneuvering system. We’ll be spending the next few days going over these rules revisions, seeing what works and how it affects character creation and play. Since I’ve got a Mage: the Awakening campaign in planning stages right now, this is of special interest to me. That said, if a Chronicle Book for Mage doesn’t come up with a conversion soon enough, I suppose I could run GMC as a straight up mortals game first.
We’ll kick off tomorrow with a discussion of the Character rules starting with the new Aspirations, Virtues and Vices and Integrity / Breaking Point systems.
