Kindred: The Embraced - A Challenge to Onyx Path
Back in 1996, there was a short-lived drama series known as Kindred: The Embraced based around the Vampire: The Masquerade RPG. I remember watching the episodes when they originally aired and those who has also watched them originally or on VHS or DVD, they know how much of a flop it was. The series is often referred to as Kindred: The Embarrassed.
I recently had the chance to watch the series over again as I helped to introduce it to one of my friends. Even he realized how wrong they got things translated from the RPG.
With all the 20th anniversary editions of the original World of Darkness books that Onyx Path has been releasing, I thought that perhaps it would be a good time to possibly revive the idea of a TV series... without the Aaron Spelling influence.
So I offer a challenge to Onyx Path to start a Kickstarter to make this a reality. Vampires have been made popular for quite some time with the releases of the Twilight movies and TV series like True Blood and The Vampire Diaries.
With good casting and better writing, I feel that a this could be a viable product. Oh, and don't keep the original title.
