I was always in it for the intricate setting. I was unhappy when the third edition came out, and I had to buy it to keep up with my gaming friends, and they'd pushed the storyline further toward the End. I wanted the setting, not to have their uberplot pushed on everyone who played in the game. Let the storytellers come up with their OWN frelling plot.
And now, I find after just joining some live-action games run by the Camarilla organization that they're going with this end of the world plotline.
I think I'm going to drop out and just stick with D&D from now on. Or with ST's who'll just run their games as if this hadn't happened. I'm really disheartened by this.
