Mage Teaser

To live in the Bay Area as a member of the awakened has always been a cold unforgiving existence, where villains stalk the night and the past comes to haunt you. The old wounds of a time almost forgotten seem to be on the verge of tearing open again, much has happened since the fall of the celestrial ladder in India and the full extent of its damages are yet not known...but soon they will be.

The SW FGotM Awakened game will be taking place on Friday the 28th starting at 8 and ending at 12. Location To be announced.

Please RSVP if you plan on attending the game so I can make appropriate alterations to the games plot to accommodate the number of players at the game. Please do this so I can also send you the "what you know" document that outlines the known history of the mage venue to both those who live in the area and those who do not. When you RSVP please also send me your precasts and a little discription on what your character does and what sort of plot you enjoy so I can make sure everyone can get a little peice of the action that I have in store.

New VSS Approved: Scarecrows Hunt

I'm proud to announce the approval of the "Scarecrow's Hunt" VSS!

While this is a Werewolf VSS, the Games in this game will focus not
include the Forsaken directly. The basic premise is: "Mortal Hunters
being manipulated into hunting the enemies of Werewolves."

While this is a VSS that is open to many of the Mortal PCs, any PC that
is transferring in will have to still get whatever approvals are needed
to transfer said mortal into a Mortals Venue. So, a normal Human with
no powers or anything would be low, while those with powers (Skin
Riders, Second Sight) will have to get higher approval. Also, the VSS
is not designed for Mortals with templates based in other venues
(Ghouls, Sleepwalkers, Ect.).

Note that this VSS will be ran infrequently, and online, at least at
first. This might change if as more players attach.

Below is the VSS; If you have any questions, please feel free to let me
know.

Name: Scarecrow’s Hunt
Domain: Dark Tower CA-22-D
Venue: Werewolf
Lead Venue Storyteller: Ron Edens
Storyteller Contact: RonEdens@aol.com
Games Hosted On: See below

Part 2: Rate each of these categories, using a 1-5 scale. 1 being
rarely, 5 being every game

Combat and challenges: 5 (The game will be based around fighting
supernatural foes, or simply coming up with non-combat ways to defeat
them.)

Character Development, personal20dilemmas and choices: 4 (Game will
include elements of personal choices, and how PC will reflect these
changes)

Darkness PC death or corruption: 5 (the PCs are taking on enemies far
stronger than they are, and being offered power beyond belief)

Drama, Ceremony and grand story: 3

Intrigue, Politics and negotiation: 2 (Could increase with PC actions)

Manners Social etiquette and peer pressure: 2 (only peer pressure,
really)

Mystery Enigmas and investigation: 3

Pace: How fast do stories emerge, develop, and resolve? I plan for
each game to be story, with a beginning and an end. PCs who wish may
perform downtime actions, but the plots will not really deal with those.

Part 3: Description of Venue

For the Forsaken, the Hunt is everything. To deny its call is to deny
their very being. After all, they are born to take up the duty of
Father Wolf, and keep the Spirit, and the Natural separate.

But the Forsaken are not alone in this task. Indeed, the humans have
always tried to stand up against the darkness, to stand the line. After
all, they have more on the line than a dedication to a long lost
spirit. It is often their own lives, and loved ones they are
protecting… and sadly often, avenging.

Such is the case in Fresno, California, where things have gotten out of
hand. For years, the Pure have ruled the area surrounding Yosemite
National Park. The few Forsaken in=2
0the area have put up a valiant
fight, but things keep coming across. Some of those things are spirit;
some are other monsters that have crossed the lines; Some are things
that simply can not be explained.

It has not been the Forsaken who have stood up to this threat, it has
been the humans! A group of Mortal hunters, known as the Scarecrow have
stood against the Shadow for years now, unknowingly helping the
Forsaken in their hunt. Using their natural team work, patients, and
courage, they have managed to save countless lives from unspoken
horrors.

But recently, the Scarecrow have been dealt a harsh blow. Cruel and
quick enemies have disrupted the former national organization, and some
of their most respected members have vanished.

To the few Forsaken who have watched, and secretly encouraged the
Scarecrow, this is unthinkable. Now, they must act swiftly to prevent
this group from vanishing, and leaving the few Forsaken in Fresno
vulnerable. They are walking among the Hunters unseen, and guiding
their actions. They are allowing their own kinfolk to join, and to
fight along side of these humans. But they must be careful. These new
hunters may guard the Line, but they may not cross. They must be given
clues, but still kept ignorant, for these are the ways of the Forsaken.

Meanwhile, the Scarecrow, desperate to stay alive, have opened up their
membership to those it might have turned back in the
past. Psychics,
and others have been invited to join them, as long as their goal is the
same… to watch the shadows, and to stand the line!

Game: At this point, I am trying to gather interest to see who would be
interested in transferring their Mortal PCs, or perhaps making a
Werewolf PC to get in on this game. The game is only appropriate for
Lesser Template PCs, but others may be allowed on a case by case basis.

Right now, there are not plans for live games, with IRC games being
possible in the future, time and participation permitting.

Cross-Venue: See above

Proxy rules: Due to the nature of the game (few active games) Proxies
will not really be appropriate most of the time. Exceptions may be
made, but are not very likely. When they are accepted, all proxies are
hard proxies. ST must be notified 24 hours in advance. If the proxing
player cannot get a person to portray the PC, the ST will assist to the
best of their abilities. In the event that no person can portray the
PC, then the Proxy will be allowed on a case-by-case scenario. The ST
reserves the right to deny a proxy based on power level, or intentions,
which are not suited to the VSS.


Travel: Encouraged.
Travel risks: a good deal. More detail to come if games actually
start.
Universal Cross-Venue Interaction Appendix, section II.E.3.:
"Characters attached to this VSS may when traveling only play i
n VSSs
native to their supernatural genre (or similarly mixed-venued)."

Experience award guidelines: Due to the infrequent nature of the game,
and the lack of downtime plot, EXP will be increased to 5 per game,
with 1 extra given to PCs whose contribution to the story is above and
beyond the normal.

New VSS Approved: Abandoned Dreams

forward to anyone who may be interested:

The VSS Abandoned Dreams has been approved.

In brief, this is a (thank you for the term, Harley) a Created Friendly
Mage VSS.

Expanded, a bit, This will be an Online/downtime only VSS that will
examine some of the themes presented in both Mage and Created (as well
as touched upon by many of the White Wolf Games.) My plan right now is
for games to be online, and infrequent at first.

As a note: while Created can be attached to this VSS, *THEY NEED TO GET
GLOBAL APPROVAL FIRST.*

Below is the VSS write up. If you are interested in linking your PC to
this game, please feel free to email me.

Name: Abandoned Dreams
Domain: Dark Tower CA-22-D
Venue: Mage
Lead Venue Storyteller: Ron Edens
Storyteller Contact: RonEdens@aol.com
Games Hosted On: Once per season

Part 2: Rate each of these categories, using a 1-5 scale. 1 being
rarely, 5 being every game

Combat and challenges: 3 (Combat less often than challenges)

Character Development, personal dilemmas and choices: 5 (Game will
focus on personal choices, and how PC will reflect these changes)

Darkness PC death or corruption: 3

Drama, Ceremony and grand story: 2

Intrigue, Politics and negotiation: 2 (Could increase with PC actions)

Manners Social etiquette and peer pressure: 2

Mystery Enigmas and investigation: 4

Pace: How fast do stories emerge, develop, and resolve? I plan for
each game to be story, with a beginning and an end. PCs who wish may
perform downtime actions, but the plots will not really deal with those.

Part 3: Description of Venue

What is a man? Is it in his mind? His body? His Soul? Should those with
great power consider themselves men at all? Should those who should be
dead consider themselves alive at all? For humans, this question is
complex, but for those who know of the mysteries of the World of
Darkness, the question becomes impossible to answer.

It is with these questions in mind that a powerful Magus formed the
Meeting Circle. A place outside of politics, and hatred, dedicated to
the philosophy of discovery, and understanding of their own soul, and
the souls of other being who occupy the World of Darkness. The Magus
invited others, Vampires, Werewolves, and other, stranger entities to
meet once a season, in the mountains of the Sierra Nevada, to discuss
these issues.

Though the mage is long dead, the tradition continues. With no one to
lead it, these beings continue to converge. With less order, sometimes
more mistrust, seeps in, but so far, things have been orderly.

But something has changed. It seems other entities have taken an
interest in these gatherings, and have their own questions they want
answered. Will the PCs come together to face this new challenge, or
will the distrust that still lies under the surface destroy them? Will
they move forward to the Goals of peace, or will they fail, and leave
Abandoned Dreams?

Low Play: Due to the nature of the game, I can not predict when games
will be held. When they do, they may only happen in Soft IRC games.
This will be updated as I get a better hold on the number of players.

Cross-Venue: Cross-venue is encouraged for this game, as it is mostly
about discovering what it takes to make a human soul. To be honest,
this game is only a Mage VSS because the NPC who started it is a Mage.

Proxy rules: Due to the nature of the game (once a season, focused on 1
story at at time) Proxies will not really be appropriate most of the
time. Exceptions may be made, but are not very likely. When they are
accepted, all proxies are hard proxies. ST must be notified 24 hours
in advance. If the proxing player cannot get a person to portray the
PC, the ST will assist to the best of their abilities. In the event
that no person can portray the PC, then the Proxy will be allowed on a
case-by-case scenario. The ST reserves the right to deny a proxy based
on power level, or intentions, which are not suited to the VSS.

Travel: Encouraged.
Travel risks: Unless current plot dictates otherwise, travel should
not be a problem.

Game On in Fresno!

Dearest of friends, fiends, and the rest of you,

Seeing as I was absent this year for my favorite holiday, I have decided, with Finley’s Tume’s blessing, to throw this year’s New Years celebration! As some of you newcomers may not know, it was on new years day, at the stroke of Midnight, when many of our founding members escaped from the hedge, and landed in Fresno. That is why we all try to get together at the stroke of midnight, to remind ourselves how thankful we are to have another year of Freedom.

So, the Celebration will begin 9pm, at the Sanitarium. Feel free to come early, and help me decorate. For those who can’t drive home, you are more than welcome to sleep in the Sanitarium.

Punch and Pie will be provided.

Out of game….

Where: My House, 1314 N Calaveras, Fresno, Ca 93728.
(did you know Calaveras means Skulls? I did not know that.)

When?

4pm: New PC Generation: We may have some new people… or some people who just want to make new PCs! Or, show up early, and help someone else make a PC for prestige!

5:30 pm: Check in, and snacks

7pm: Game On!

OK, Kids, this will be our first Live game in some time, so if you can, I’d love to see you there. Bring a friend, split the gas money.

If you have any questions, please, please, PLEASE let me know.
