Scras's Renaissance of Darkness
« on: November 04, 2011, 11:45:57 PM »
I feel I should preface this with two facts.

1. I have had a s**tty s**tty day, and am currently on my second bourbon.

2. looking back at the OOC thread, I've started a lot of games and not finished them. I am not pleased with this. As such, many of those games were spur of the moment creative outbursts. I have been considering on this for a while and I have been messing around with the Old World of Darkness. I want to run a game for more than just my wife.

I have sent a number of personal messages to people who have gamed with me in the past, and are still somewhat present on the site. Once I get a few notifications of either sure, maybe, or I'm washing my hair I will post more details.

on the table:
Vampires: Brujah, Gangrel, Malkavian, Nosferatu, Toreador, and Ventrue
also related: ghouls.

Weres:
Garou - hunters and killers of Gaia
Nuwisha and Kitsune - tricksters and teachers
Gurahl - keepers of the land
Bastet - seekers and keepers of secrets
Corax - messengers
Ratkin - waste disposal, population controllers
Mokole - Gaia's memory, chosen of Sun
Ananasi - architects and planners, spies and assassins
Nagah - Healers
Rokea - stewards of the seas

Shapeshifters or shifters - lesser shapeshifter that can only assume human or animal form, no between or hybrid forms. Also isolated from the Umbra. Can assume multiple animal forms, but to do so they must have either spent a great deal of time around said animal, or killed one and ritually consumed its spirit.

Wraith - Risen corpses, or possessed human victims.

Changeling - i dont know. Open for discussion, but more Raksha from Exalted than Changeling the Dreaming

Mage - lots and lots of words. open to discussion.

Pariah pokes the thread

Is this going to be going anywhere?  The used book store up the street a ways actually has some old WoD books laying around for cheap.
They were immediately and absolutely recognizable as adventurers... They were hardy and dangerous, lawless, stripped of allegiance or morality, living off their wits, stealing and killing, hiring themselves out to whoever and whatever came. They were inspired by dubious virtues.  China Mieville - Perdido Street Station

I managed to score a free copy of Werewolf: The Apocalypse for Halloween at DriveThruRPG, so I've got the rules for the Garou at least.

Got a little behind on schedule, apologies.

If you don't have a core book that's fine, I can help fill in the blanks around what can be found on the internet.

as for characters we have:
A Child of Gaia werewolf
a Khan mystic
and
an Entropic Mage

Just popping in to let all my players know that the game is still going to happen, it's not gone to development hell.

I've been caught up in doing other things, (drinking was involved this weekend) but plan on getting things rolling soon

Was at a congress (no time), contemplating what to do in-game, actually. No idea so far.

I personally need something to react against - right now it seems more in your court.  I do not know how far I can go with starting events.

Given 0 experience with the system, I'd like someone else to go first :)

What valadaar said.  I responded to the character prequel in IM, but wasn't really sure where to go from there.  A little more guidance would be nice, as I too have no experience in this system yet.

Character intros are the next step, everyone has a lead for getting to Vixenburg and the Lake Croatan area. Let us all know what you look like, and get a general idea of what your character is beyond the stats on the sheet (likes, dislikes, etc)

I wanted to write something involved but at the moment, I'm swamped. There has been a new round of honeydoo chores that have popped up, and I've been under a lot of stress.

I do apologize, but simply dumping the game and saying better luck next time is not an option. This game is just getting off to a rocky start

Aleksandr Anatoljevic Belgorov

Appearance:
A large muscular man pushing forty, with a full beard and unruly black hair.
Slightly slanted blue eyes.
Mixed Caucasian - central Asian descent.
Scars from various fights.
Appears 'unhewn' but tidy. Prefers woodsman's clothing, or turtleneck and jacket while in civilization. Rarely does he don a suit - though the contrast between his bulk and a cultured attire makes him stand out.
While schooled in English, amongst other languages, he has a marked Russian accent.

Personality:
Positively friendly and social, though direct. Self-assured, energetic, pro-active. Loves life with its highs and lows. His coat of civilization is very thin, though, and adopted and cast off at will. While he has a personal sense of honor, consisting mainly of loyalty, keeping his word and taking responsibility for his actions, he will take whatever action he deems necessary, disregarding mercy and other such trappings if necessary.
Aleksandr is very passionate for the cause of a Motherland for Gaia's children, and surprisingly open-minded when it comes to dealing with other supernaturals.
His emotions are large and fierce; when he loves, he does so with all his being, when he hates, it's not a little thing either.

Likes:
Hearty cuisine (meat, potatoes). Practical things, especially when they are well made. Interesting spirits, whether for discussions, tests of mettle or affairs. Honest laborious down-to-earth people.

Dislikes: Decadence, wastefulness, stupidity, parasites of all kinds.

Am I doing this right?

I'm planning on using this channel for the OOC communications.

I want to post initiative order for combat

Aleks - 6
Terance - 6
Fomori Joe - 5

Dossta, can you shoot me a character sheet?

Layout of the Ready'Roll:

The building is a large rectangle, wider than it is deep. There is a single door, offset to the left side of the building front. The cashier island is directly in the middle of the store, and butts up against the rear of the main room. If you go right when you come in you'll find the common seating area, a collection of formica topped orange booths, the coffee stand, and the newspaper rack. To the left of the cashier station is the store proper, two rows of shelves, with displays and goods piled up in the corners and around the periphery. Cold case coolers line the left and rear walls, and the restrooms are tucked into the corner. Stepping towards the bathrooms reveals five doors, two are locked, and lead to the cold case coolers. Men to the left, women to the right, and finally an exit to the rear of the building. From the cashiers island to the exit is approximately 30 feet.

Tried to find a floorplan of a gas station, and talk about search overload

If the game is waiting on my post, sorry.  I'm still waiting for a reply from Scras about my char's next action.  Not really sure where I come in the initiative order, either, so I feel it's best to wait until it's sorted out.
