They Should Have Called it “Vampire…”
…because that’s the only element of the World of Darkness setting to be touched on here. I know this was meant as more of a behind the scenes look at the personalities that created White Wolf and not a primer on the games. I still would have appreciated a little more about the other games. How did they sell in relation to Vampire? Are there LARPers as devoted to Garou or Mages as Vampires? How about Tim Bradstreet and Tony DiTerlizzi in a room talking about how their VERY different iconic artwork’s affect on V:tM and C:tD respectively? Where are Ian Lemke and Phil Brucato? I would have also liked a foot note about Mark Rein-Hagen’s post White Wolf career.
On the whole, I DID enjoy this episode of Behind the Music. I never paid much attention to the band that created the entertainment I loved. Now, the names in the front pages of the books with the funny cryptic nick-names have faces and personalities. Thanks for that. While I may gripe that this isn’t a documentary about the World of Darkness so much as Vampire: The Masquerade, Vampire was always my favorite and this film really stirred up a lot of nostalgia. I would recommend this to anyone who played Vampire in the 90’s.
Where were the real fans?
A rags to riches to rags again story. This is how White Wolf blew it big time when they had what was probably the biggest RPG property in the world. It was sad to see, especially when the company basically took an enormous dump on their loyalest fans for the sake of a buck. Who knows, they may have still been around if not for that single event alone.
What also struck me were the ‘fans’ they depicted as being VtG fans. They were all young, thin and beautiful. They were stylishly dressed or immaculately costumed if it was a historical setting. It just seemed a bit, improbable? Believe me when I say I have met many fat goths in my time and many fat role players, I didn’t see either in the film. They all looked like fetish models, even the ones trying to look ugly. I suspect the hiring of extras or, at the very least, some very careful vetting!
