Katana's and Trenchcoats
« on: July 02, 2016, 06:31:37 PM »
Welcome back to darkest...um...vancouver?

For some reason the 1980s and 90's have smashed into the modern day, leaving with a strange hodgepodge of science and technology.

But, in more closer detail, demons have been sighted in the world, and the supernatural council (tm) has put a bounty on each one killed. Deciding that they can kill more together, a group has formed to purge the unholy for the dark, rainy city (yes, no-one can quite remember the last time there was a bright sunny day, odd really).

Have you got what it takes to pick up a sword and fight?!?!!?

OKay.

I'm looking for 3 or 4 players to work together with characters created from the Game Katana's and Trenchcoats!. I would like at least one post a day

Any questions, please ask

Is this a system game?  If so, is it free to pick up?

It is a system game, and no it's not free.

This is where it can be found.

I love K&T. Im definitely up for it. Just wondering how you'd handle grandeur. But I guess that's just a minor detail in the scale of things.

But the rules are $4.99 but I'm a nerd into Highlander (movies save the source argh, all three series animated and not and the books) but open to running other sorts of characters to fit the group.

So let me get the rules and have at it.

Got the rules, I'm in.

 ;D Headshot!

Seriously they would be a deadly team against other sword swinging Immortals for you and my character gets easy meals not risking innocent mortals. Not to mention passionate, clothes ripping off, fang bearing and used kinky sex and yes she likes ripping off clothes. As for blood magic she likely will focus on something in that likely a theme from vampire lore and mean some fly, some change form, or commune with beasts so its clear these come from using the vampire life force in some way and seems cultural.

Any room for more?  I'd get the rules, but I'm a broke college student right now.  I'll have to hunt down a copy somewhere.

Background

She was born in Athens to Greek Jews of the merchant class her father dealing in salt from his own mine and her mother the progressive had at the time of nine children four sons pampered by her father and three daughters, all getting a reasonably nice education. Being skilled in music she was sent to be trained under Sappho of Lesbos one of the greatest poets of the age. Its there she was turned into a woman in the arms of Sappho and worked on her art and even studied the philosophy and natural science of the day. Then after a few years she was brought over by another vampire who foresaw trouble for the Jewish People and saw her as a powerful asset to protect them but left the world of mortals for the shadow war. Her last memory of Judith her maker was after they made love and she left her in the form of a common cat.

Erotic Event: Lost her virginity to Sappho of Lesbos and later her maker Judith and her first time fangs bared biting erotic vampire sex.

Not able to return home she traveled to Jerusalem seeing Israel become under Simon Maccabeus the first Prince Priest of Israel and fought in the battles against Immortals and mortals her home a sanctum under the city where she joined her sisters some fed on the Jewish people and she did but also protected them. And studied the Torah and saw the forming of the Talmud keeping original notes from many great men of the time. But when Pompy and the Romans came she drifted away against the onslaught selecting her fight not worth the risk so moved with her treasures to Rome.

Erotic Events: She spent time in Cleopatra's Court as a respected scholar at the Library of Alexandria making love to the Queen well after she found out what she was and found being with such a lover - intriguing.

There she lived as a wealthy Romanized Jewess and scholar for a time them disappeared again moving to Misenum and saw the eruption of Mt. Vesuvious and luckily was outside the harm and she quickly did two things spent a good sum of money aiding the survivors and giving low interest loans and then bought a huge tract of land encompassing the area around Pompii and other locations at a very generous price being generous to the survivors. But she wasn't a fool the ash will make the land rich for crops in a century and she has time. She was a patron Jewish settlers taking 20% of profits from those there from farmers and fishermen to traders and craftsmen. Then the Romans followed she couldn't do business with them as a Jew but could sell them the land back at a fat profit. But the Jewish settlements live there still.

Erotic Events: Made love to identical triplet women of her people as lovers and brought them into the realm of the night as her kind, since they were also lovers with each other, they stayed together forming a triad who went their own way.

She then left the world of mortals moving her wealth into portable means until she could make use of the first banks living in the shadows, assisting Jews forced to leave Spain or living in Ghettos some moving to the Holy Land and others to more pleasant ports of call controlled by the Muslims, avoiding exposure, collecting more treasures books and art and the hand written copies of important Talmudic works storing them in her sanctums always improved for security and care of these items.

Erotic Events; Made love to many prominent women among the arts and unusual sorts including Barney, Collet, Frida, Mata Hari and others in her Night Salon in Paris.

In World War 2 she rose to full anger once she found out what the Nazi's were doing to her people she showed them little mercy opening her coffers she funded large numbers of Jewish partisans with top quality weapons and supplies, especially in Italy and SE Europe. She spend money to move people to asia and neutral countries. And she finally came out herself hunting elusive SS backed doctors and masters of the occult they were no match for an ancient vampire filled with rage and she finally tracked down the elusive Dr. Ommermen who had overseen horrific experiments and had her hands on him eyes black and fangs bared in front of three prominent Jewish men and their family all related to her. Her words were simple: I walked the Earth for over a thousand years, I met legends among mortals, and defended always my people, I'm a monster to but even God can use a monster for his purposes - I am God's wrath and before this night is done you and all you love die! She then took him away skinning him alive, leaving his skin hanging and slaughtered his SS guards, peers and in a night of horror steeped in blood. The survivors saw her come out soaked in blood, a creature of myth and she left the memory burnt into the men and their spouses and children as she left melding into the shadows. It was the only time she killed in cold blood but took many lives and it felt good to her.

Erotic Events: Rejoined her immortal wife and well was largely monogamous with her as a source of vital blood but when not rending apart the enemy found time for fun. They left after the war each others side to meet again at a later date.

After that she watched the world turn and modernize, her role changed as she focused on aiding Jews get their new home of Isreal, she went to Woodstock and danced nude under the moon and enjoyed her existance while being a largely kind creature and ended up locally when three Rebbe moved in the men she spared so many years ago, their wives and children and others forming a new Hassidic community. She secretly funded needed things including a Yeshiva hosting original copies by hand of many major Talmudic works in a climate controlled secure library/vault.
