As a fan of the game since 1st ed, I am ambivalent about this; I have my misgivings.
I really liked V20 and DAV20, but really disliked what they did to Celerity, Potence, and Fortitude. This is the edition I run now. I even created a campaign using the old Chicago by Night books which steadily established a stable political system and killed off problem children. Then I started dismantling it over time for Gehenna. It's highly detailed, and uses the encounters already written in Chicago as well as NPC's I lifted from the old tv series Kolchak the Night Stalker which is set in the Windy City just before the campaign was supposed to start in the Chicago by Night books.
I have read that there are extensive changes to the game system itself. On top of that, I have another concern.
In recent supplements, this company has been breaking with their past policy of sticking to horror and for the most part, historical accuracy, in order to be more politically correct/inclusive.
I don't believe in whitewashing history. Better to see it for what it was and deal with it, than try to delete it and forget.
I am worried that this will continue in this edition. It breaks the theme of horror outright to assume that everyone is accepted, in fact, this is what the Nosferatu are all about (they were never accepted).
