No… no, not really: it’s the new Underworld flick. Hunter: The Reckoning is just what they’re (allegedly) ripping off this go-round.
Although maybe that’s going to be a Hunter/Technocracy rip-off*.
Look, I may or may not have said some unkind things about White Wolf’s various Noun: The Gerund RPGs series in the past, but the truth is that I still have about a shelf and a half of their books – and having watched some of the Underworld flicks I am forced to admit that I muttered Man, but they ripped off the WoD something fierce in these at various points of the films. In other words, I probably have a slightly more jaundiced view about who’s being ripped off here than, say, Tycho did back in 2003.
And being more jaundiced than Tycho takes skill.
*That they jettisoned the Technocracy in the new Mage game is, of course, a sin and a crime. Just thought that I’d get that on the record.
