More than 20 years ago, White Wolf Publishing announced that they were going to do a boardgame based on their Vampire: the Masquerade rpg. After pushing back the publication date repeatedly in their quarterly catalog, they finally dropped it. And I decided that I probably knew more about boardgames than they did, and started brainstorming how I would make the game. By 2003, White Wolf had two competing designs in development, one of which was mine. Both games got published, and now the original creator of Vampire: the Masquerade is taking a shot at the exact same subject matter.
Barnes and I were talking about doing an interview for F:AT several years ago, but never got around to it. Now I'm thinking about doing a series of articles or forum posts about my experience. I kept extensive notes during the process, regarding design, prototyping, playtesting, and working with White Wolf Games on a contractual basis. What would you folks prefer? That I continue posting in this thread, or do articles for the front page?
