    Several? Everyone of note except Mark Rein Hagen is on staff. It's pretty much the entire Chronicles of Darkness era creative staff. The Paradox era WW had no real pedigree that I could tell. Onyx Path is for all intents and purposes the true White Wolf.

    To clear things up:

    Onyx Path Publishing:
    Given the staff as mentioned above and the legal standing of Onyx Path a licensee, we've almost come full circle except for the fact that Onyx doesn't own the IP.

    Give it time. Paradox isn't likely to do anything with the IP. The WoD MMO really wasn't a great idea to begin with. As far back as the 2E releases back in the 90's, White Wolf noted that there were a great many rules inconsistencies that STs would need to resolve for any crossover chronicles. It was never said outright, but the problems largely came from Mage.

    Yeah, but Onyx Path hasn't exactly been doing a sterling job as of late, especially with Beast: The Primordial and some of their own controversies.

    Ignore the Chronicles of Darkness stuff. All the post Rein Hagen lines are pretty questionable. Onyx Path has done decently with their 20th Anniversary WoD line--everything else is irrelevant. lol

    Its not irrelevant though. Modiphius Entertainment was awarded the development of the 5th edition of Vampire The Masquerade in December last year. Considering its one of the flagship lines for the World of Darkness, that's certainly a blow to Onyx Path, and a subtle reminder that while they might be producing games in WoD, they certainly don't own the rights to it. Paradox could easily revoke their license to the material.
