How to answer when GM Fiat is included in RAW?

Is the [quintessence] tag quintessential?

You're sort of asking the wrong question here. No tags are needed; tags being “quintessential” or “really needed” are not requirements we apply to them. All that a tag needs to do here to justify its ...

Changing [new-world-of-darkness-2e] to [chronicles-of-darkness]

old-world-of-darkness goes to world-of-darkness — the way it was all the way back. (Jadasc's answer) We really should make new-world-of-darkness an alias for chronicles-of-darkness. The Onyx Path ...

Changing [new-world-of-darkness-2e] to [chronicles-of-darkness]

It should be noted that the official stance of Onyx Path (and by virtue of being the only mouthpiece I can find for the new White Wolf, presumably White Wolf), that 'New World of Darkness' branding is ...

Should we rename/synonymise [larp-mes-camarilla] -> [minds-eye-society]?

The MES in the tag is meant to represent "Mind's Eye Society," but the most common name for that organization is still "The Camarilla." In fact, at the national meeting a few weeks ago, the Board of ...

Am I allowed to ask questions about Vampire: The Masquerade -- Bloodlines plot here, or should I go for Arqade?

I think this depends heavily on how the question is phrased. Questions that are purely about the plot belong on Arqade. Questions that try to understand the plot of the game from the perspective of ...

Should all Mage the Awakening questions have the 'rapidly evolving' post notice?

It doesn't need the Rapidly Changing template message — either the answer is knowable and answers will be submitted, the question will get closed as unclear, or it will just remain unanswered until an ...

Am I allowed to ask questions about Vampire: The Masquerade -- Bloodlines plot here, or should I go for Arqade?

If you want to ask more like the kind of question you asked, you should just go to Arqade or Scifi. The original version of the question was really not appropriate for our site. It reads like this ...

We should clarify that the [world-of-darkness] tag is only for the "old"/"classic" line

It used to be that world-of-darkness was the umbrella tag for all editions/lines/etc., as well as representing the setting(s) called “The World of Darkness” across editions, as you say. We nailed down ...

Question on the tagging policy on World of Darkness questions

That tagging proposal was written in 2014. World of Darkness tagging was updated again in 2015, making that 2014 tagging schema out of date as a reference. In the 2014 proposal (which I wrote) the ...

Should we rename/synonymise [larp-mes-camarilla] -> [minds-eye-society]?

Per this suggestion here I've renamed the tag to the-camarilla-minds-eye-society, with larp-mes-camarilla and minds-eye-society as synonyms. This way both names it's well known by get covered. We can ...
