News

Now available on DriveThruRPG in PDF and print on demand: Wraith: The Oblivion 20th Anniversary Edition!

All the stories they told you about what it would be like after you died? They were wrong.

There is no Heaven and there is no Hell. There’s only the Underworld, with the ravening maw of Oblivion at the bottom and the impossible dream of Transcendence at the top. And in between, all the Restless Dead.

Are you ready to join them?

Wraith: The Oblivion is the Storytelling game of passion and horror. Take the role of a ghost whose unfinished business won’t let them rest.

  • Protect the things you love in the lands of the living, or travel into the deeper Underworld to become a citizen – or an enemy – of the ancient Empire of the Dead.
  • Learn the forbidden Arcanoi, ghostly powers that can terrorize the living or wreak havoc on the dead.
  • Fight the pull of Oblivion, the endless void that seeks to drag everything down into it, and come face to face with its corrupt Spectre servants in an endless Labyrinth filled with nightmares.
  • Walk the streets of the eternal city of Stygia, where the crumbled monuments of antiquity rise one after another, a thousand destroyed cities blending into one.
  • Set sail on the never-ending storm of the Tempest with a wordless Ferryman at your side, or seek the legendary Far Shores, where it is said that every wraith can find peace and contentment.

So don’t go into the light. You’ve got more interesting things to do in the Underworld instead.

Twenty years ago, White Wolf published what many have regarded as their darkest, bleakest, and most mature gaming achievement. Largely disconnected from the rest of the World of Darkness, yet tied to it by fetters of unresolved issues from their lives, the characters also had to face the compelling whispers of their own dark sides, their Shadows.

This 20th Anniversary Edition of Wraith: The Oblivion returns to that darkly compelling world and both compiles and completes the concepts of the previous two editions.

Led by legendary Wraith: The Oblivion developer Rich “Deadguy” Dansky, our writing team consists of Wraith veterans like Bruce Baugh, Lucien Soulban, Jackie Cassada, Nicky Rea, and Clayton Oliver, as well as familiar names such as Charles Andrew Bates, Matthew Dawkins, and Lillian Cohen-Moore, and they one and all dedicated themselves to making Wraith: The Oblivion 20th Anniversary Edition the most playable edition yet – while not losing the incredible depth of setting and emotion that Wraith is known for.

With the release of Wraith20, we’ve rounded out the 20th anniversary edition core rulebooks of the original major World of Darkness releases: Vampire: The Masquerade 20th Anniversary Edition, Vampire 20th Anniversary: The Dark Ages, Werewolf: The Apocalypse 20th Anniversary Edition, Mage: The Ascension 20th Anniversary Edition, Wraith: The Oblivion 20th Anniversary Edition, and Changeling: The Dreaming 20th Anniversary Edition. Thank you to everyone!

    Does the premium version have the glossy, shiny, hologram design on the front cover?

    Thanks.

      I’m not sure what you’re asking. Wraith has never had a “shiny hologram design.”

      The Deluxe will have a black leatherette cover like the other Twentieth Anniversary Deluxes. No hologram or glow-in-the-dark, alas… But it’s going to be rad. Of course, this PoD version is totally rad, too!

    Done with the core books? What about Hunter and Demon?

      Like all of our license, those books need to be greenlit by WW. If they were, we’d love to do them!

        Please, make it happen! 🙂

        We need a Hunter 20… and a Hunter-Net app! Like the old Hunter-Net mail list back in the 1999-2000s… but for the 2020s…

    As Someone who missed the Kickstarter will there be opportunities Premium version?

      Like other deluxe editions, any overstock remaining will likely end up on IPR at some point.

    Do the 20th anniversary editions require any of the WOD/COD core books? Or do they stand on their own?

    • Ian A. A. Watson
      August 18, 2018 at 2:27 pm

      The Chronicles of Darkness is a completely different setting and system, so no, none of those books are required.

      Each edition of the World of Darkness — in this case, Wraith: The Oblivion 1st Edition and Wraith: The Oblivion 2nd Edition — has been a standalone rulebook. The 20th Anniversary Editions don’t change that. They’re all standalone rulebooks, just like their predecessors.
