The Subnet: World of Darkness Character Creation

I have an excellent resource to share with you today. The Subnet is a wonderful website devoted to the various games in the classic and new World of Darkness ranges. It is primarily set up as a resource for building characters for each of these games.

I recently used the website with a friend who was creating a new character for a Vampire: the Masquerade game that I was running.

Subnet is broken down into section for each game, which are further divided into different categories such as, in the case of Vampire: the Masquerade, Clans, Disciplines, Paths and so on. Within these categories there are several subcategories organised by theme or just alphabetically. These make finding individual rules much easier, as they are usually spread across several books and can in some cases be rather elusive.

It is therefore useful not only for designing a character, but also for giving a single, easy resource to keep track of all of the rules for your character’s various abilities. I’ve found it useful as a GM and at least a couple of my players have used to to help them design their own characters.

The site has a few broken, mislabelled or dodgy links and it does look like a relic from the 90s, but so is the classic World of Darkness, so all is fine. The website can be found at
