In the old forum there is a PNP forum that rarely ever gets used. I unintentionally left it out, if there is interest in it, I'll add it. If enough people want to do non-White Wolf PNP-type games, wouldn't it be better just to make a thread in off-topic? That's not a statement but a question. Thoughts? We'll continue be primarily supporting White Wolf games, other stuff is pretty much off topic and dependent on the interest of other site visitors. As far as the site's general direction goes, driving more traffic is essential but I think generally speaking, the staff doesn't want to dilute too far away from WW games. Basically, a PNP game that is unrelated to NWOD or OWOD can be successful here, and I hope it is, but it probably wouldn't be featured or promoted on the front page.

I was actually referring to White Wolf properties.  I know I wasn't specific, but I don't think I implied that products not related to ww or vampire should be given real estate on the boards.  In context, it wouldn't make any sense.  Anyhoo, I just found it odd that there wasn't a forum catagory for WW PnP, considering that's the medium that not only puts out product regularly but is also the basis for everything else.

I only really took notice myself when I had WoD related PnP material I wanted to run by the community.  If you don't think it warrants a spot on the boards, hey no sweat.  Just seems to me that there's going to be a lot of cross-over, especially on a site called planet vampire, between people that play the PnP and the videogames.  That there's been PnP and/or canon mods for both redemption and bloodlines seems to speak to this point.

But again, it's your boat.  I just bumped into a potential blindspot and thought I'd send up a smoke signal.  No big.

Burgermeister is going to spider the old boards again and we might as well have the PNP boards too, they are part of our history, even if they aren't used much. I'll put them in on Sunday, before the new boards get the data from the old boards. I guess I read your other thread (skimmed it) and thought you may have been talking about a PNP game other than WW.

In off topic, right?  That's actually the PnP material I was talking about.  It's a system I'm considering employing to make PnP WoD \ Vampire more accessible to the uninitiated.  It's all original work (except the stats ... and the pictures I casually modified ... and well, let's face it, cc games have been around for 20 years so the format's not all that original either)  But the colors!  I hand picked, those! ( well, while looking at the cover to the WoD sourcebook .. so that's pretty much a rip too) ... but I did put all that in a blender, so hey .. go me!  (pretty sure putting stuff in a blender has been done to death too ... goddamn it, there's nothing original about it!)

I added the PNP area and modified the description of the Interactive Storyboard to include non- WW games.
