Original World of Darkness

Welcome! This is a group dedicated to the roleplaying games by the name of "World of Darkness", released by White Wolf Publishing up until 2004.

What is the World of Darkness?
It's a set of roleplaying games setting in a world called the "World of Darkness" where you can play a wide range of supernaturals in present day, medieval times, the victorian age or the wild west. Information about the game can be found at Wikipedia or the White Wolf Wiki. The new World of Darkness is a completely different game, and is not what this group is about.
For example, this roleplay includes;
Vampire: the Masquerade
Werewolf: the Apocalypse
Mage: the Ascension
Changeling: the Dreaming
Hunter: the Reckoning

Why only the old WoD?
I (the founder) created this group because I am a lover of the old WoD but not at all fond of the new one. So I wanted a group that focused solely on the old game and it's fans. So if you connect the word "Vampire" with "Masquerade" rather than "Requiem", I'd love for you to join! If not there's plenty of other groups for you (ask, and we'll even link you to them).

Needless to say, we want submissions connected to the original World of Darkness, and only the original. Although it doesn't have to be exclusively characters it's important that some part of the game was in your mind as you created the piece. Any medium is acceptable though, literature included! Submissions are limited to 2/week, to stop people from spamming the group's inbox.

We will however be somewhat picky with what we accept. Finished pieces above sketches or larp photos, for example. Quality WoD-art is our goal with "art" being the key-word. A devation might also be rejected if it is of poor quality or covered by a huge watermark that lowers the overall visual impact of the image (small and/or discreet watermarks are fine).

Please try to put your submission in the correct folder or it will be declined. If you can't find the folder you're looking for, use "Other" as no specific folders will be created until a certain amount of deviations has been submitted that would fit into it. (So maybe we're not expecting there to ever be a need for a "Mummy"-folder.)

You are very free to suggest favorites, but if you suggest a deviation of your own it will be declined. Use the gallery instead.

If there's any questions, suggestions on how to make the group better or even if you just want to say hello, don't hesitate to note us or comment below! :heart:

Sorry for the delay. I am not often around my PC, so I haven't checked the submissions in a few days. Thank you for the submissions and the inquiry. :D

Cool group! I love that there is still so much love out there for the original WoD! However, I'm curious as to why you chose to use the Black Dog Game Studio logo for your group icon. I only ask because it's an odd choice being so specific to only a handful of White Wolf books, all of which were "adult" in nature, and hardly indicative of the World of Darkness or White Wolf in general. Just wondering.

Thank you! You have a very impressive gallery I might say as well, but I imagine you already know that! I imagine there will be a lot of love for the original for a very long time to be honest. I know there will as long as I'm around at least.

Well, I chose it since the logo for the OWoD is quite ugly and in the World of Darkness universe Black Dog was the equivalent of White Wolf before it became it's own series of published books in the "real world", so to say. I suppose I found it funny to imagine it as the collection of the OWoD roleplay... Published in the OWoD universe :) Also, I have always been a sucker for strange references, even those that might only make sense to me and the people I personally roleplay with. One has a tendency to assume that everybody will get your inside jokes

Heh. Sounds good. I'm glad there's a good reason behind it and it wasn't just a choice made of ignorance. I figured that anyone who loved the setting enough to make a dA group about it would know better, but you never know. :-)

Haha, maybe I'm still ignorant, only I am really good at talking out of my ass? ;) I'm glad it doesn't sound completely insane to anyone outside my particular circle of friends! (Especially since I am the only one of them on deviantart)
