I was poking through the tags, looking for things to flag as favorites and I came across . It appears to be aliased to , but that's not accurate: There were three other Storyteller-based games published by White Wolf: Aeon Trinity, Aberrant, and Adventure!.

We don't seem to have any questions that cover any of the three, but their existence makes the synonym and it's description inaccurate. Is it worth fixing?

It may or may not be worth fixing. Since tagging follows what we need in a practical sense though, it's not possible to tell whether it's important to fix until we actually have questions that show a need to be tagged with .

Historically we had few to no questions that were actually tagged with just ; in practice it was (nearly?) always a redundant tag beside [cwod] or somesuch. My guess is that if we ever do have other games in the Storyteller system family, they'll only need game-name tags like and won't benefit from being collected together under a family-system tag.

If we have or get questions that would benefit from an independent tag though, or there is a clear and present need to encourage people to use the tag itself, we can always detach it from and make that happen! It's just not really worth it for hypothetical uses, when the practical uses have (as far as I recall) always just been as a synonym for classic WoD anyway.

  • \$\begingroup\$ nod Since those games are getting a second edition soon anyway, we can tag them with the new system tag, whatever it's going to be, and if we need to backfill, we can. \$\endgroup\$ – Jadasc May 25 '16 at 13:59
