Promethean



The previews for White Wolfs next World of Darkness game Promethean: The Created is well underway. Initially I was a bit sceptical about it, as I thought WW would keep to close to their established format, even if the game is a limited series of five books. Sure they will stick to the 5x5 splat format but the social splats are very different due to prometheans not havning a proper society. There also seems to be a lot of other differences in the basic concept that makes it uniqe enough for a new game. Most importantly, the more I hear about the details of the game the more I look forward to trying it out. The concept of someone who is not human at all but wants to be is something I have often wanted to play in various rpg:s but for never gotten around to do. Yes, Data is one of my favourite fictional characters.
