One of the things that drew me to DnDBeyond is the character creation. I was delighted to see the world of Darkness being digitally available (hence I purchased all the books). Now there is a button stating character creation will be available early 2023, So I’ve been checking back monthly, now we’ve passed the first quarter of the year. Is there any update?
Hello, and thanks for posting and checking in for updates.
Our target for character tools for Vampire NEXUS has indeed been the first half of this year. As I have shared in recent Dev Update streams, we have made progress on the characters part of the platform itself (piloting right now with Pathfinder’s Closed Alpha, but that work also applies to Vampire since it’s all part of the same platform). Vampire and Avatar Legends are the other two games we are working on, and getting all the specific mechanics in for all three of those games is going on in parallel at this point.
We might not hit the first half of the year, but we’re going to be close - unless a black hole sun takes us all out or something, it will definitely be this year, and closer to the middle part of the year in the worst case.
We set out with this platform approach where while adding in the first game took many months, we would have scalability to be able to onboard other games like Vampire much quicker - our success depends on that since we have so many games we’re going to support. The good news is, as we have started working on Vampire and Avatar, our hypothesis about the increase in speed is proving true so far.
I’ll keep sharing more in our Dev Update streams, and in the meantime, we’ve updated the Vampire NEXUS homepage to remove the “early” to hopefully reduce some confusion.
