"Do not believe what the scientists tell you. The natural history we know is a lie, a falsehood sold to us by wicked old men who would make the world a dull gray prison and protect us from the dangers inherent to freedom. They would have you believe our planet to be a lonely starship, hurtling through the void of space, barren of magic and in need of a stern hand upon the rudder."
They are mostly correct: the world is a lonely place, making its slow orbits around the sun, and desperately in need of direction. It is not, however, a wholely natural world, and it is not devoid of magic. Even to these nights, the undead have clawed their way into the upper echelons of society, shapeshifters prowl the countryside, and worse horrors still cling to the underbelly of society.
It is a World of Darkness; or it was, but that seems poised to change. This very evening, a hikikomori keys the final character in his complete, unabridged translation of the Voynich Manuscript, while a punk in a hole-in-the-wall club inspires a riot that will leave a city shambles. In the deserts of the Middle East, a field medic draws her pistol and fires a shot instinctively into the sky -- and knocks a sniper's bullet from the air. In Chicago, a firefighters arrive on the scene of an inferno in time to find a young woman stumbling from the fire, wreathed in flame -- but she does not burn.
For millennia, they slumbered -- but tonight, the dragons wake.
...What This Is
If You Are Interested:
This an Exalted: the Dragonblooded campaign set in modern Las Vegas for three players; players will not be first-come, first-served, but rather selected from submissions after a week or two.
Any in-game smut stuff will be done according to everyone's O/Os and will be totally optional. I'll never force sex scenes or anything like that onto anyone unless they express to me that they want it to happen. If people get too distracted with bedmaashing to focus on more important stuff, I reserve the right to oust them.
Answering these questions is important, and your answers to all of them will help me make player/character selections.
What Aspect your character concept is, as well as a brief summary of the sort of character you would like to play.
Why that character would be in or around Las Vegas, Nevada, or why they might want to return there or be drawn to the city.
How other characters might know your character (to help form a tight-knit circle without having to Meet In a Bar.)
How often you'll be able to post if you're accepted.
All Rights Reserved, etc. Posting a character does not guarantee acceptance. Posting a lazy concept or a concept that doesn't engage me at all will make it hard for you to get a spot. If I find your character concept offensive (or offensively bad), I will say so. If you're curious if your concept falls under any of these umbrellas, feel free to post and ask
! My goal is not to be enigmatic about this kind of thing, just to make it clear that I have no intention of putting up with characters that won't be fun for to Storytell over.
Also appropriate: talking about the idea, and expressing what sounds fun (or what you think might be more
fun) in a game like this.
