General OWoD RP Thread?
« on: March 27, 2009, 04:05:48 AM »
after a good bit of random conversation on the SB, it has come to my attention that this place needs just kinda a general OWoD RP thread, does it not?

Maybe some kind of bar that's neutral ground for supernaturals, (thinking Lar's night club from Angel?) just for people to bring in some personas and have a bit of fun as their favorite supernatural.

sound good?

I always thought that sort of place would be nice.  Unfortunately, the old world of darkness always seemed a bit too tense for everyone to set aside their differences and just have a drink.  You know that the werewolves would be talking trash to the vampires, and the technocracy would try and raid the place sooner or later.

Of course, I'm always willing to bend things for a good bit of fun.  You won't see me complaining if the ahrouns and brujah have a friendly arm wrestle.

well, first there's the fact that it's easier for people to hate each other if they don't know each other. Then there's the fact that neutral ground doesn't mean no fights, it means if you pick a bar brawl you're getting thrown out.

My guidelines? meh, none really, it's just to be a casual IC RP thread, I'm not even going to worry about mechanics, people can worry about that themselves if they care and it comes up.

Awesome...could make it at the Succubus Club...*sighs remembering all the games held there*  That place was always riddled with more than just vamps.

Zeon Twilight and I were thinking of bringing our two characters from the old WoD LARP we go to at Dragoncon. Me as an 8th gen Brujah and him as a former member of the Order of Hermes. We will be posting soon if you will have us, thanks for the awesome opportunity!

Might be tempted to but my only OWOD characters were a hunter (though she was the ex slave of a vampire) and a mage.  Maybe make up a Glasswalker?

I doubt that a Hunter would feel very comfortable in the company of leeches; but if you wished to write up a mage, there's no real reason why a Hollow One or some other sort of an Orphan couldn't get along famously with the Kindred. I might put together one of those myself.

What about an Innocent, a Martyr, or an Avenger who was willing to ally with some supernaturals against others who were worse?  Innocents are friendly toward supernaturals; while a Martyr might be convinced to sacrifice themselves so that a leech would not prey upon an innocent.  My leech enjoys nothing better than corrupting some innocent or other good soul...

Yup, and Ecstatics and Verbena and Hermetics and even Sons of Ether work well.  Dreamspeakers and Akashics tend to be prejudiced against Kindred, and Euthanatos basically have a "shoot on sight" policy.

Those could fit in, true enough: sorry to say, my instinctive reaction to Hunters has been coloured by the common "psychos hearing voices telling them to kill" stereotype. And a splat isn't supposed to define every aspect of a character's personality anyway, so it's quite possible to come up with a (semi)plausible explanation why even exceedingly unlikely characters might have a reason to spend a while at the club. A HIT Mark on a reconnaissance mission? Well... Maybe.

Hmm. Speaking of the Technocracy, are we talking about 2e or Revised era here? Or just ignoring the metaplot completely?

She was a martyr in fact.  She had been a vampire slave until she had killed him bad became a hunter, sacrificing herself to save others.
