I've been involved in one aspect or another of the adventure games hobby for the past twenty-five years. Started playing in 1987. (First game? Champions, followed by CyberSpace, the Iron Crown cyberpunk game for Space Master, their sci-fi Rolemaster spin-off.) Was hired by InQuest Magazine in 1996, where I started my editorial career. Since then, I've done work for Green Ronin, Malhavoc Press, Dream Pod 9, and White Wolf. I managed two different game stores in the metro Boston area in the 2000s, and am now working primarily freelance. Still gaming after all these years.

I have a weakness for good coffee and bad puns.

Welcome to the site, André! It looks as though your answer concerns the old or classic World of Darkness. This question concerns the new World setting: Requiem, Forsaken, Awakening and so on.

comment Is using the term “gypsy” in a game racist?
@Flamma They did apologize for that, and WoD: Gypsies, and spent a lot of wordcount and time trying to walk that back.

@Sardathrion I think that the OP is imagining something that someone could conceivably join, like a travelling band, rather than something necessarily born into.
