Pardon a newb question.. I haven't done much here yet, and I am looking at running a WoD. How do people do dice rolls? Is there something built in here, or do you have your players roll in realtime and post, and go on faith/honor system?

Also, try This link.
It's an archive of threads from a game here called School of Darkness, which aimed to help players get acquainted with the system. The whole forum seems to have been archived now, so you probably won't get direct answers to questions there, but there's a lot of good information there to sift through. I ran a demo game there a while back, and learned enough to run a full fledged game; I really suggest it as a place to look around.
As for dice rolls, the simplest way is to make a narrative post, then put your requests for rolls in a spoiler tag. For example, you tell your bit of the story, then in a spoiler tag write: "Okay, I want a wits+composure roll from everyone (for perception) and an intelligence+subterfuge roll for the two characters trying to lie their way into the club."
Then those characters post their rolls, and you continue the story accordingly. Make it clear what penalties or bonuses they get to rolls before you ask for them, and there won't be any trouble with players posting before you're ready.
