Remember White Wolf, the company behind VAMPIRE: THE MASQUERADE and WEREWOLF: THE APOCALYPSE? Those games were big deals back a couple of decades ago. At the zenith of their popularity they inspired an unfortunately short-lived television series and at least one mass murder by a group of really disturbed teenagers. (Note: This last was in no way the fault of the makers of the game. I mention it only as a curiosity and because it was a major news story at the time.) The property was acquired recently (very recently, in fact; October of last year) by a new parent company, Paradox Interactive, and working with a new publisher, By Night Studios (Love that name!), White Wolf is making a comeback! (For a lot of fans they never truly went away.) Plans are underway to bring us MIND’S EYE THEATRE: WEREWOLF THE APOCALYPSE. (Also digging on their use of the older, classical, stage-based spelling of theater.)
This new gaming book is designed specifically for LARPing. That’s “live action role playing” for those not in on the lingo. It sounds like a lot of fun, and packed with full-color artwork and photographs created by illustrator Scott Harben, it ought to be pretty to look at, too. The makers of the game are asking for your help to get everything up and running. Click the link below to go to the Kickstarter page and help these guys out. You can get some cool swag and extras in the process. When will YOU rage?
