@shatterspike1 See this question and its answers for some additional tips on mixing and balancing various nWoD groups. Hope you'll find some points useful. :) rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/11631/…

comment How can I have a mixed game of nWoD without having a thematic mess?
It's not the system's ability to handle 8 players what I find extreme (although I have my doubts about running a combat scene in nWoD with 8+ participants incl. NPCs) but the idea of running an effective nWoD horror session w/ that many people (unless you're playing a zombie apocalypse, but even then the scare factor and the tension would probably be very low, esp. compared to a 3-players-game.) (n)WoD itself seems to have been designed for a max of 5 ppl: see the number of faction choices etc. Our group has always liked beginning play w/ mortals. It's scarier: more humane & more personal.

@aramis We've played a number of moderate length campaigns using these guidelines, and they worked for us. As for what's standard and what isn't, and what the "feel" of the WoD, especially the nWoD is like... your mileage may seriously vary. (As for the gradual introduction: it's simply an extended prelude, which is quite an official recommendation, see Character Creation, nWoD p34. and Preliminary Story, nWoD p196.) To me, for example, the suggestion in your own answer that nWoD could work well with troupes of 6-8 players seems rather extreme, as I think the ideal is 3, with a max. of 5.

comment What is a good way to handle a multi-plane adventure?
I'd give this answer an extra +1 for recommending Planescape, and +1 for the way you worded that recommendation. :)
