Wednesday, 3/24/2010, we had an "online LARP" session on IRC. Everyone who attended (including Joshua Talltrees, Sybil Angelis, Koko, Fleur Childe, Melanie Kellis, and Katrinka) received 1 xp for attendance and 1 xp for good roleplaying. Fleur Childe and Koko also received 1 xp for heroism and 1 xp for learning curve, and Fleur Childe received 1 xp for First Appearance.Renown
: Everyone who fought Howls-at-Luna (i.e. everyone except poor Sybil) got 0.1 Glory; Melanie Kellis gets 0.1 Honor for dragging Howls-at-Luna to justice; Koko and Fleur get 0.2 additional renown, their choice of either Glory or Wisdom (or 0.1 each), for attacking Howls even though they were far weaker than him, and for comforting and healing Sybil.Howls-at-Luna got -0.6 Wisdom for succumbing to a berserk frenzy; -0.8 Wisdom for succumbing to the Thrall of the Wyrm; and -1.2 Honor for trying to rape Sybil during his frenzy!
There are two packs forming. One is Melanie Kellis (Black Fury ahroun) and Nadjia Korsakov (Shadow Lord ragabash); their totem is likely to be either Isthmene or Grandfather Thunder. The other pack is Joshua Talltrees (Uktena theurge), Draws-the-Net (Glass Walker galliard), and Sybil Angelis (Black Fury theurge). Once the packs have been active for one full month, the alphas will receive 0.3 Honor.
There are several new garou in South Florida including cubs (Koko, Fleur Childe, and Will Emberstone) and visitors including the powerful Silent Strider Alexander Slayer-of-Legends; the Fianna ragabash Aurora Rider from the Amazon; a lupus Fianna from Boston; two Get of Fenris garou, Astrid “Strikes-Swift-in-Fury” Eriksson (Ahroun) and Katrinka Frey (Philodox), and the Get of Fenris kinfolk Carl Sinclair who has been claimed as a mate and punching bag by Sybil Angelis. This is enough to form an entirely new pack, or to fill up the other two packs nicely. In addition to Carl Sinclair, there are several other kinfolk of frightening levels of competence such as Christina (an investigative reporter) and Clarissa (apparently a former military commando), up to and including a Glass Walker who is a "technological theurge." Any garou who mentors the cubs and/or kinfolk (i.e. teaching new players about the game rules and/or the setting) will receive both Honor and Wisdom renown!Judges-Not's judgement upon Howls-at-Luna
will be intended to rehabilitate him rather than punish him; she can see that his situation has warped his mind, and she needs to deal with the root causes of his behavior. It will also have a separate aspect intended to help Sybil including restitution as appropriate, although not vengeance. She will first ask Sybil, as the victim -- oh, wait, that's not politically correct, so Judges-Not would call her the "survivor" -- of the crime, she would like to have happen. Depending on what Sybil asks, Judges-Not might approve it. As I said, restitution without vengeance.
Judges-Not wants to have Howls-at-Luna "rehabilitated" by basically giving him anger-management training but more importantly teaching him exactly what is mistaken about his anger; that not all leeches are evil, and neither are all "wyrmbringer" garou; that it's wrong for him to expect kinfolk women to fall at his feet, especially when he treats them so poorly; that women can dress attractively or even provocatively without necessarily meaning to taunt him; and that they can behave affectionately to him without wanting to sleep with him.Our next session
will be a garou-oriented game on Friday (tomorrow) starting at 10pm GMT / 6pm Eastern / 3pm Pacific.
It is perfectly appropriate for new players who are unfamiliar with the game to show up for the session, as long as you have a basic idea of your character; or simply to watch the scene.
The game will be a Moot and will take place at the Sept of the Watchful Eye in Alaska. Many garou of South Florida will be traveling there to participate in their Moot and tell tales of renown, including the destruction of a half-dozen leeches and their fomori servants in Miami.
The online game will actually be hosted by the Watchful Eye online game http://WatchfulEye.wikidot.com
and their Storyteller will run it.
Their game is on the DarkMyst server which can be reached at http://www.darkmyst.org/?page=webchat
