Wraith: The Oblivion (Video RPG Review)
This isn’t Heaven.
This isn’t Hell.
This isn’t anything you could have imagined.
Death wasn’t the end.
Death wasn’t the answer.
Death was just the beginning.
So what do you do? Do you listen to the voice inside your head telling you to just let go? Or do you still fight, still love, still feel the passion that won’t let you rest? Oblivion’s the easy way out. Life after death is hard. Choose. You have eternity to weigh the condequences.
Wraith: The Oblivion. It’s not about death. It’s about what comes after.
Wraith: The Oblivion is a role-playing game set in the afterlife of White Wolf Game Studio’s World of Darkness. In the game, players take on characters who are recently dead and are now ghosts. The difference between Wraith: The Oblivion and other games of its sort are that the society of wraiths is deeply described and explains the interaction that occurs when ancient dead souls mingle socially with the more recent dead; the society is both a dystopia and a heterotopia.
