So, we can buy the starter bundle to access WOD, but do we know if using the full account will require a subscrition, or will have subscritpions? And if so will there be tiers?
Game content you unlock on Vampire NEXUS is one-time buy. That one purchase unlocks the contents of the book throughout the toolset, including the not-yet-released character builder and digital character sheet features.
There will be a Demiplane subscription available in the coming months that will provide platform level benefits like being able to share content you have unlocked with others in your playgroups and more. We will share more details about that soon.
But a fan will have several options to use the digital toolset upon full launch:
- Free - you will be able to use free content from the VtM Companion, like the Ravnos clan, to create characters, plus other free chronicle-related content that will be added before launch.
- Unlock Content - you will be able to read, explore, and build and manage several characters with any digital books you unlock with one-time purchases.
- Subscribe - you will be able to share any content you’ve unlocked with friends and more (full details coming soon).
We’ll keep you posted, thanks!
hello there, i was wondering if you had a projected date for when the next two books for world of darkness will be coming out?
The target for Chicago by Night and Cults of the Blood Gods is early August - but it’s possible it will happen earlier.
Keep you posted!
Will keep an eye out. I have all the physical copies of the books, so getting digital copies is a bit painful, but it is getting harder and harder to find a physical group to play with these days.
I am excited to see what comes of this.
Are there plans for a hunger dice roller to be used in conjunction with the voice or video?
We plan to support hunger dice once dice rolling is released for Vampire, yes - it’s on the list!
Great news! Do you have a rough roadmap of other books? I’m particularly interested in Forbidden Religions.
Will downloadable PDFs of the World of Darkness content be available with purchase of the Demiplane versions?
No ETA yet, but the goal is to have them integrated before the end of the year.
No, that’s not an offering that the World of Darkness team makes available. However, you can purchase the Renegade / Demiplane hardcover / digital bundle for a book during that book’s pre-order period or any other promotion Renegade might do that includes a PDF to get it as usual from them.
So is the toolset functional across multiple platforms such as Fantasy Grounds?
There is no formal integration - if you use Fantasy Grounds and want to use content there, you would pick it up from them.
With that said, getting content on Vampire NEXUS lets you access the content in a format that is more than a PDF anywhere on any device, with no need to have an active session going for a specific VTT. The NEXUS content can be used alongside the VTT of your choice as you play, and there is the potential for more formal integrations down the road.
We’ll share more as we get there, thanks!
So just some quick background, I am currently running a few games via Foundry/Discord. I’d love to bring everything into one silo as it can be a pain onboarding new players. I’ve poked around the tools and have a bit of feature request.
One of the biggest things when it comes to Vampire which I intend to run as a theater of the mind style game is audio (music or background noise like a club for example) and pictures. These two things tend to create a much more immersive experience for players. The challenges I’ve faced online is holding the players attention and I’ve found that these tend to pull them in and anchor them more to the game.
While I don’t think it’s reasonable to store files in Nexus for use I’d love to stream them. I get the kind of undertaking this would be from a technical perspective, it is just a thought I felt I would share.
- I did see the the share desktop feature and could mix in audio with my mic audio, it would just be so much simpler to click a button and have picture displayed or audio file played.
Hello, and thanks for posting.
I agree with the sentiment on music and ambient sound. We have some long-term goals to do something in our group playspace. Nothing to share any time in the short-term horizon, but we would love to see something happen. We’ll share more as we get there!
Thanks for the heads up, I look forward to see where things end up.
Hello, quick question…
If I buy the VtM books on Demiplane, are they shareable/referenceable by players in my game if I am the storyteller?
Content Sharing is coming down the pipeline shortly. So while you won’t be able to share anything today, for instance, I expect that we’ll have more news about when that is rolling out soon.
Does purchasing bundles in WoD work the same as in Pathfinder Nexus?
Yes, they’re functionally the same, just different offerings to account for the different books, but there’s no difference in terms of how they work behind the scenes.
