Previously on WTF, D&D!? we brought you the sorry tale of White Wolf and Capcom's collaboration on the disastrously terrible Street Fighter RPG. The game used White Wolf's Storytelling System to give very dumb people the chance to play as their favorite characters from the Street Fighter video game.

Zack: Alright, we're on the first page and you have referenced Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Dan Abnett. Let's just burn everything and go our separate ways.
Steve: Purify it with cleansing flame!
Zack: I hate you, Steve.
