Thanks Urban Dictionary!

I can't understand why White Wolf hasn't published an updated Vampire: the Masquerade (V:tM)for the new World of Darkness (nWoD, contrast to old World of Darkness as oWoD). I mean, it just seems like printing money to me! Wouldn't...everybody buy it? You could revise it to your hearts content, even. Make whatever you want to be optional, optional. I mean, off the top of my head-- you could make all 13 of the clans into Vampire: the Requiem (V:tR) style bloodlines. That is one section there. You could make rules for different covenants-- maybe the Camarilla, the Sabbat, the Iconnu, & the Black Hand. Optional. You could include rules on how to make the V:tM clans jive with the V:tR covenants, or how to use the V:tM sects with the V:tR clans. If you asked me, I'd make all the V:tM clans as their own distinct clans, but without signature disciplines...then make the V:tM signature disciplines into common bloodlines. That is, how about making nWoD V:tM clans with all basic disciplines; exempli gratia make the Malkavian clan disciplines be Auspex, Obfuscate & Nightmare & then have common bloodlines like the Malkavian antitribu who get Dementation, or Camarilla Malkavians who get Dominate or Daughters of Cacophony who get Melpominee. See-- you can reconcile continuity, which fans get off on. This is just the sort of stuff I think about, sometimes. Anyhow, these are the kinds of books I want from White Wolf, & I hope that this summer's Mirrors is the start of them fulfilling that promise, something in the vein of Mythologies, which I thought was a great book but which doesn't look like it is dripping with alternate rules & new disciplines. Really, that is the angle to play up; don't players buy books to see what new powers it has?
