I suspect the gaming world collectively shit its pants today

White Wolf, a publisher that has a major portion of the roleplaying market with its games such as Vampire: the Masquerade, Werewolf: The Apocalyspse, Mage: the Acension, etc., made an announcement today that they're ending it all. Yep. The Apocalypse is upon us. Over the next year or so they'll release a series entitled 'Time of Judgement' in which all World of Darkness titles will come to a glorious end. No word on what to expect from them in the future; although White Wolf does publish a few other titles, the angst-ridden World of Darkness is its core line.

I'm not sure how this will affect our game; our core material is Chaosium's Call of Cthulhu, but World of Darkness is interwoven throughout. There's no need to follow White Wolf's storyline, though. But I suspect our game has been heading towards post-apocalytpic Cthulhu for awhile. :)
