White Wolf Releases the Manual of Exalted Power: The Alchemicals

A few days ago White Wolf released the Manual of Exalted Power: The Alchemicals. As the title kind of hints at you will have all the information you need on making an alchemical character. From there you will have charms and information on the protocols, gods and the automata of Autochthonia

White Wolf releases Splinters of the Wyld

Well I like when there is so much fluff and crunch that it reaches beyond the constraints of a book and makes it’s way to a PDF expansion. The book in question was The Compass of Terrestrial Directions, Vol. II—The Wyld. With titles like that no wonder the book filled up. Well now you can get the PDF extra called Splinters of the Wyld over at DriveThruRPG

Some Old News

Well I started browsing for news and guess what….most are on vacation still which means I should be too. Nobody sends me the memo. It’s ok, I can move past that but here are some things that did go on that is pretty interesting.

1. Fantasy Flight Games seem to be switching up the LCG format a bit to offer triplicates of new cards and making the packs with 60 cards in them. I guess this is good but I am not sure I am a huge fan of the LCG format. I got the Call of Cthulhu LCG from my wife and I am excited to play it but I still don’t like the concept that everyone is on the same base. I see the appeal and call me totally elitist but having played Magic: The Gathering I like having totally random boosters and having that little edge. And it’s not so much a matter of spending the most money to get the most benefits either as I am rather moderate in buying boosters. I just go with what I got.

2. Speaking of the LCG a new Call of Cthulhu expansion pack is now available. It’s entitled  The Search for the Silver Key

3. Finally have some White Wolf news. Got a new Storyteller Adventure System module entitled Through the Ebon Gate which is for Geist

4. There is a full set of maps available for Dungeon 173 over at Wizards of the Coast

The Future of White Wolf

Well White Wolf had a developer panel recently at ICC 2009  and some interesting information is coming down the pipe line.  It seems like some online tools are on the way. That would be pretty wicked as online is the way things seem to be trending to. Obviously playing in person will be a staple but digital tools for netbooks and laptops are essential. I wonder if they will head down Wizards route of subscription based services or will they be our BFF and make it totally free. You want to be my BFF White Wolf? Don’t hit my wallet
