Why does the incorrect spelling of "vicissitude" lead to this page?--142.58.126.15 (talk) 04:20, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

Could some version of the WoD cover be uploaded as an image for this article under fair use? The current image is somewhat puzzling as it appears under the section detailing the history of the rulebooks but seems to have more to do with in game lore than anything else. A precedent seems to exist: I checked two other rpg pages (Dungeons and Dragons and Warhammer 40k) and those both had copyrighted covers. Anyway, just putting it out there for any autoconfirmed users who come by. HeathrowArchives (talk) 08:21, 8 November 2010 (UTC)

The other world of darkness sections have their rulebooks up too. I think it would be fine. Most wiki articles about books have a picture of the cover on them. Svenxix (talk) 01:56, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

Should it be mentioned that the World of Darkness is now switching over to a PDF/POD system? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Reflections of Memory (talkcontribs) 02:03, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

Since this is a role playing game, shouldn't this have an RPG info box on it? In reality WoD covers more than just pen and paper role playing so it might be better to include the info boxes in each of the sub pages, but that would get a little redundant. Svenxix (talk) 02:00, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

I know that White Wolf is now referring to their older material as "Classic World of Darkness", but "Old World of Darkness" still seems to be much more commonly used among the fan community. 67.60.251.221 (talk) 04:52, 26 January 2012 (UTC)

Well if you can find some place that references it, go for it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 32.144.170.174 (talk) 16:44, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

Referencing Other Rule Systems[edit]

I'm a new editor, so please forgive me if I inadvertantly break etiquette. As I read through this page, I noticed the explanation of the rules for the nWoD make many references or comparisons to the system for the oWoD. This implies a familiarity with those systems on the part of the reader. Should this section be edited to eliminate the assumption of that familiarity? Or should it be perhaps edited to include a brief comparison between the two systems as a separate paragraph or section?Lotus Watcher (talk) 17:46, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
