[nWoD] The Omerta Masquerade [Recruiting!]
« on: November 25, 2014, 08:24:10 PM »
I had a thought. World of Darkness is a lot of fun, but there's a weakness to the setting: It's in modern day. And modern day, while fun, is a little boring-we LIVE in modern day. And one of my favorite things to do is take an established system and throw it into a crazier setting.

So with that in mind, here's the set up: World of Darkness in 1920s era Atlantic City. Boardwalk Empire meets Supernatural, in a way. Vampires with tommy guns, Changlings making magical booze, werewolves in goddamn suits!

So come on. Who's interested? Who wants to ride the everflowing river of booze and sex all the way to the top? Who can take control of Atlantic City, while everyone from the Seers of the Throne to the True Fae to every single Vampire Coterie try to take it from you?

Alright, so, some rules:

Approved Books: All 'core' splats (WtF, MtA, etc) with the exceptions of Demon and Mummy. Additionally, Changing Breeds has also been approved. Everything else, PM me.

Use Pre-GMC rules (if you don't know what it is, then don't worry. Just make a character according to the Core Book and your preferred splat) for creation.

All characters will receive an additional 5 Experience Points. Not much, but it's meant to reflect your character's 'lived' experience up to this point in the game. Additionally, everyone will start with full pools of whatever you use to power your, well, power-Vitae, Essence, Mana, Plasm, whatever.

I'm interested.
As for crazier settings, there's also Umbra in the WoD.   ;)

  Interesting concept, Angie. 

  I'm pretty burned on vampires right now, and terrified of anything that smacks of PVP, but you have my attention.

I encourage people to play anything that ISN'T vampires, to be honest. This may reflect poorly on me as a GM, but I really fucking hate nWoD vampires and want them all to burn. That being said, if you wanna play a vampire, go ahead.

As for PvP...I dunno. I encourage people to work together, as there's going to be stuff you can't handle, like spirits being the domain of mostly Werewolves and Thrysus Mages, or ghosts being the realm of Sin-Eaters and Moros Mages (Mages can do a lot, but eh). Plus, everyone will have talents and Merits related to certain things, so I encourage negotiation and deals more then fighting.

I really need to get done with school.  Roarin' 20's Changeling would be a lot of fun.  Unfortunately I have 5 more months to go. 

Great concept though!

Character building will be as normal, with two things:

1: I'm tossing out GMC for now. I could try to convert everything over, but I'm not about to kill myself over it. So, we're using regular, vanilla, caffeine free WoD.

2: Everyone will get 5 XP at start, to reflect that you've been around the block in either mortal or supernatural life (or both!). It won't be much, but you can probably get a couple things with that.

And 3: I said two, yes, but my game my rules. Demon is the only 'official' WoD splat I'm disallowing, mostly because I haven't played with it yet. The fan-made supplements are also disallowed as well. I'd love to let Geniuses and Princesses in, but Genius is a little overpowered and Princesses don't exist in 1920.

Interesting. I've always wanted to play in a roarin 20's game. What are your thoughts on the Changing Breed book? On all the minor official splats really. I love the off kilter by the wayside splats better than I do any of the major splats for NWOD.

Huh, it's new, but it looks well done. Changing Breeds hereby receives the official stamp of approval!

Stamp!

If anyone else wants to involve the smaller, minor books, check it over with me.

Well, that's cool, because I prefer playing a Mage.

This thing was up for three hours and got quite a bit of response, imagine if I posted this when people weren't busy with Thanksgiving!

Anyway, this is now an official recruitment threads. Bring me your sheets! Myth-Weavers has an amazing one if you're over there!

An evil voice inside me whispers 'Mummy'. It must have the nefarious intent of throwing any and all inter-splat balance out the window. Of a helicopter. Above a volcano. Someone, help me resist the siren call!

Isn't Mummy a fan-made splat? Anyway, your evil voice is denied as I disapprove Mummy with the Giant Middle Finger of GM Disapproval!

Then it gets the Middle Finger because, like Demon, I haven't played it yet.

*chuckles* I'm currently thinking about a mage girl who's either a bootlegger or a burlesque performer--or just a torch singer.  :) 

Some questions: 

Do you have a plot in mind?  Or is this mostly just a romp? 

Will there be much sexual content?  If so, what category?  Player initiated only?

There will be plots, though not much of an overarching plot-this is mostly you guys trying to wrestle power away from a myriad number of groups that don't want you to have it.

Sexual content: I'm going to put this in extreme just so I'm covered regardless of what happens. I may have an NPC try to seduce a player or two, but you have my word that I won't do anything NC. Like, it's not even a thing where I'll ask your permission, I just will not do it. I personally ask that you guys shy away from it, but I also won't stop you.

Good to k now that ahead of time.   In that case I'd like to know some of the gender mix of the applying characters so I can contribute accordingly.
