Ultimate New York By Night
Old World of Darkness Made New
Ultimate New York by Night is a chat-based, persistent-world Vampire: the Masquerade chronicle incorporating both official Old World of Darkness canon and unique lore accumulated from other chronicles over the years. Originally a tabletop chronicle, the game has since evolved into an online experiment, blending the depth and quality of Sanguinus with the contemporary social networking value of Skype and Obsidian Portal.
This game is slightly different from others you may have played. You are not a gamer operating an avatar, rather you are an actor and a writer composing and presenting a play in real time. While not technically free form (or dice-less) role playing, the game is laser-focused on creating drama and crafting a narrative. Dice, statistics, and rules are often blatantly ignored in favor of the narrative, and players are encouraged to explore the full extent of their character’s dramatic arc. Rules Lawyers and Power Gamers will find it frustrating, while Character Actors and Storytellers will flourish.
