There are 2 kinds of people in the world: those who don't like dragons and those who enjoy living.

Personally, I want to be a Mage.  Yup.

i dont mind different races to be added but if the game is about vampires then it only make sense that any playable race has vampirism. Nobody complains about a game where everyone is a healthy human, so i dont see a problem with everyone being a vampire in a vampire game. So yeah, variety of races is fine as long as they all have vampirism :)

Er, are you familiar at all with WoD??  A werewolf with vampirism?

Seriously though, this game is about Vampires and Humans so I doubt there will be any other playable races.

they havent confirmed its only about vampires, it is called "World of Darkness" if it was only about vampires they rightly should have named it Vampire : The Masquerade or something close to that im pretty sure they will add more than vampires and humans just by its name

From this article on PCGamer.com where they interview Reynir Hardarson the creative director it seems like players are going to start off human and then all become vampires :-


PC Gamer: Are we all vampires? Can I just play as a human and not turn?

 

Reynir Hardarson: Yes.

 

PC Gamer: Will I be able to compete though? Will I be as powerful as the vamps?

 

Reynir Hardarson: No. Not as a non-immortal. Part of the transformation is that immediately you become a lot more powerful in different ways…

 

PC Gamer: So it’s a decision that players can make? “I’m don’t want to roll with those guys?”

 

Reynir Hardarson: Yes. The game begins when you die.


 

 

True enough though, it doesnt specifically say that there will or wont be other races.... "As a non immortal" you cant compete, so you might be able to be things other than vamps such as warewolves etc.

Mage:

Akashic Brotherhood. 

There is NO miracle patch.

95% of what you see in beta won't change by launch.

Hope is not a stategy.

I watched their entire presentation that had at CCP's fanfest, and at one point somebody asks about other races.  The response to the question was that not at launch as at launch there will only be vampires, but he does mention that the lore behind WoD includes werewolves and mages and such.  He insinuates that they plan on adding other races in later maybe with expansions etc.

They function similar to a race, so they would count as one in this game.

For anyone else, this article gives a good summary of the races.  Many of them, of course, stem from humans.

I'm hoping Hunter and Werewolves make it in quick.

Mage would be fun too, but it'd obviously not be so free form. That's going to be true about all the games tho' I guess from their pen & paper counterparts.

Changling and Kindred of the East a lil' lower on my to see list, but if they showed up I'd be happy too.

Personally I'd like to see the game eventually have it able to be started just plain ol' d10 Human. Then see what happens from there. LoL

I used to play MMOs like you, but then I took an arrow to the knee.

You can be human. Apparently you can stay human if you want but you won't be very powerful.

Geist. By far the best of the WoD games. 

Or perhaps ... a Hunter, especially with so many Vampires around.

One thing I would like to see out of a World Of Darkness game is the eventual inclusion of Mage and Werewolf. I would absolutely play if, when or if they include Mage, they included the Technocracy as a playable faction. Some of the best Mage games I played in were the ones in which we played as the Technocracy. 

If it is truley a sand box game as CCP is stating, than hopefully players will even be able to chose to play as Sabbat or Camerilla.

Mage would be awesome .. the wall they might hit in development is, that truly you can customize your spells to such a degree that how would they standardize it without losing the flavor of Mage entirely? You can literally create spells using the different schools of magic 'on-the-fly' as many of the players in our table top do. I'm not syaing this is impossible to do in a computer game but I think the mechanics would have any designer scratiching their head for years and making compromises taht might turn the hardcore Mage fans off.. Alot of the Mage game spells comes down to a ruling by the Storyteller who decides whether or not what the player wants to do is even possible and a "You'll need this many dice to pull that off." 

It would be interesting to see how they handle this.

The other WoD templates are much more straightforward and allow a lot less tweaking. Some Geist powers are determined by the player but on the whole they are standardized. Vampires and Werewolves would probably be the easiest to transition into a computer game. Do you think they could bring Mage to MMO and truly maintain the integrity of the Table-top? I have to say, I am a bit skeptical.
