Why You Should Avoid Buying V5 - Bad News

Recommended Posts

Going by the reviews, the new v5 of V:tM is not something to write home about. It's pitched towards the mindless modern internet neonazi sorts.

This review declares that White Wolf are even dead to him now. He even recommends you buy 7th ed Call of Cthulhu instead.

Well, not having seen the finished product I find it very hard to judge anything.  However, Vampire has always been a power fantasy. Heck, I remember people from my college days who identified themselves in terms of a Vampire clan or Garou tribe. I mean, I almost thought they really believed they were vampires or werewolves. This was back in the '90s and these were as much adults as I, who plainly knew how ridiculous this was. So I'm not sure that part is new or how much the new edition actually caters to this element.

Very much so.

For myself, until I can get the final product and can see what's inside, which I've become much more curious about due to absolutely vicious hostility to it I see, I'll stay cool.

Let me know when you get to the playable character who's a paedophile.

And it looks as if the original post has now been taken down. So, nothing to see here, folks.

We shall all apparently see what all the fuss is about, come July 26th - that being a date I obtained from a very reliable source.

Otherwise, thanks for sharing.

The post was deleted because it came to light at DogWithDice doxxed one of the writers working on V5 and disseminated that information to others as part of a harassment campaign, just FYI.

Further supplemental information - both Onyx Path and, bless them, White Wolf, have released official statements divorcing themselves from anything resembling nazis and fascist apologists.

Here's the post with the links to White Wolf's and Onyx Path's rebuttals to the nazis.
