“For Auld Lang Syne” basically means “for the sake of old times.” That pretty much summarizes why this Obsidian Portal site exists.
My wife and I met in college back in the mid 1990s during the heyday of Vampire the Masquerade and VLARP. Come to think of it, many of my good friends today I first met as their goofy ‘blood sucking alter egos.’ However, for me Vampire was just the delivery system that brought me to Werewolf the Apocalypse. Playing these silly games (LARP and tabletop) was a big part of being ‘young geeks in love.’ When I first met my future wife, she played Vampire. I set about to change that… and must admit was successful beyond my wildest expectations.
Significantly… she didn’t just borrow my books, she bought her own. That’s when I knew she was ‘The One.’
Many of our fondest gaming memories originate in the fictional old World of Darkness and involve the Garou that live, fight, and die within it. Though games and gaming groups come and go, Werewolf the Apocalypse will always be ‘Primus Inter Pares.’
