With the announcement of Vampire: The Masquerade 4th Edition by Onyx Path Publishing, the team of World of Darkness: Gotham has decided to scrap plans for the implementation of the 20th Anniversary edition into the site's infrastructure.

Making a switch would require a lot of work on the back end, especially with the various web forms we use to drive Character Creation and the Character Dossier.

In order to avoid having to update twice over, the World of Darkness: Gotham team has decided to wait until 4th edition is released before updating web forms.

We will continue to cherry pick our House Rules from all editions as we always have; this includes 20th Anniversary. However, implementations will be done slowly over time rather than in large, one-time update.

As rulings are made and precedents set, areas of the wiki will be updated to reflect those precedents.

This will conserve development resources for other community improvements.

Web forms will continue to be as they are with dynamic form fields used for new abilities and other traits. For example, our dynamic Secondary Ability form fields can be used to add Primary Abilities introduced in 20th Anniversary.
