As you guys may or may not know White Wolf, the company behind the popular World of Darkness rpg games (Vampire the Masquerade etc.) have teamed up with CCP Games to work on a new World of Darkness MMORPG.

World of Darkness Banner

The game is stated to focus thoroughly around power and politics. Definitely no Twilight crap.

For the moment the game is set to focus on the Vampires, although further races from the World of Darkness will be added later on.

Vampire the Masquerade

One thing which really intrigues me is that it has been suggested that players will be able to become Princes of locations, with the support of other players, and will be able to call blood hunts on players within their domains.

Having just got into Vampire the Masquerade I am really excited by this and will be watching its progress eagerly, although at the moment CCP Games seem to be more concerned with getting more employees.

Are any of you interested in a World of Darkness MMORPG? How do you think it will fair?
