World of Darkness (old or new) Craving
« on: October 12, 2009, 07:48:03 PM »
Just putting a flag up to see if I could get in on any new or existing World of Darkness games.  Clarification:  Not looking to run, just play.  I tend to prefer Vampire Masquerade and Requiem, Mage Ascension, and Changeling Lost.

I'll second this.  It would be neat to have a good group White Wolf game... I'm partial to Requiem or Masquerade, though I know a little (very little) about Changeling.  Like you, I'm not terribly keen on running the game.  I could, however, help to narrate some side-scenes if we had an appropriate ST.

I'd enjoy a WoD game too, though I tend to prefer Mage:The Awakening and Werewolf: The Forsaken from the new WoD.

Here is a game that could possibly be brought back to life.   For what ever reason it did not get off the ground.  At the time not too much interest I suppose.  A game of Vampire the Requiem.  'Nights over Lower Merion Township'.

Here is the link to the ooc thread started for the game.

http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=30097.0

I am not sure if Rubyslippers would be willing to revive her concept and run it.   Thou I be willing to take part in it.

Well we need another ST so I can play and not have issues of favortism pop up, but I'm game to restart if we can get enough players.

I set it in a more rural area where there are colleges including Bryn Mawr and should support a small vampire community. On the plus side there is no leadership per se.

I run a lot of table top NWod, both changling and werewolf. I have two games that I can suggest. However being rather new i am not sure I should ST...still I have a lot of expirience.

the werewolf game is easier to run online, I think.

So there we go...just offering.

I don't have any other books but the core book and core vampire book.

I was toying with a Supernatural themed game using the core nWoD rules and ading in some rules for that series. But all will be pretty much new hunters, if anyone is interested.

I like nWoD.  Werewolf is my ultimate favorite, though I've recently been made a convert to Hunter.  Mortal games are nice, because we all know how to play one of those folks.  I can play Vampire, though it's hardly my favorite system.

I would love to point out my game setting doesn't demand you be a vampire, mortals and even other supernaturals are fine. I just don't have rules for the others. The idea was is a haven for those supernaturals with no home per se like vampires that don't want to be bothered with politics. mages that are neutral, werewolves that are rugged individualists etc.

I'm not ruling out any particular venue except mage at this point... if you guys are into it, that's fine, but I'll pass on mage.

As far as Hunter and Werewolf, I haven't even laid eyes on the books for the nWoD versions, but I'm willing to take a look if that's what the bunch of you decide.

While one of the lures of nWoD is the INSANE amount of weird, obscure bloodlines and courts and etc., I think it would be great to have a "normal" group-- whatever venue, if we keep to the core books for ideas and don't elect to have a "Superfiends!" game, it would make the rarer courts, bloodlines, etc. special. 

I think Ruby's setting looks cool... too bad we don't have a Storyteller volunteer yet.  Senti-- thanks for the mention.  It's not easy to run a game here, though it's easier with very few players or with a bunch of independent players who are capable of taking off 'on their own' and running their own story. 

Some things to think on, if anybody likes the idea:
1- we could self-narrate until we hit a point of conflict... then, we shoot the "ST" a PM to ask for a judgement call.  The ST's input can come in at any time to direct/control plot, though, if somebody's interested in throwing out a story at some point.

2- what kind of power level?  I'm thinking medium to low. Higher-level powers mean higher-level cheese. 

3- could we consider chosing one 'primary' venue and limit to one non-venue character (werewolf in a requiem venue, for example) for every 2 regulars? 

Just some food for thought, ill-organized as it is.  Starting to get excited about the idea of playing again, though :)

I would actually be very interested in playing a werewolf in a vamp game; the muscle of the group, so to speak, not to mention a walking blood bank.

Unless you danced the spiral.  No garou would ever be a blood bank for the leeches.   Even then it be like putting two rabid dogs into a room and expecting them to share the bone.

I must admit I am not overly keen on vampire either N or 0 WoD.

I tend to find werewolf works for a group as they are pack animals. Even more so in NWoD.

I would note in nWoD werwolves don't automatically hate vampires, most take them on a case by case basis. Hell most are good neighbors compared to some other options like demon spirits. I think we can do my setting with vampires, werewolves or whatever. I will ST any mortals and vampires other than myself. I don't have the other rulebooks for the other supernaturals.

Wow!  I have some personal stuff come up, and when I come back, the thread positively EXPLODES with eagerness.  Joy oh joy!

OK, I did request Vampire, Mage, or Changeling, but it seems that a lot of people are interested in either old or new Werewolves.  Sorry fellas, but that's just not my cup of tea.

If Rubyslippers can be convinced to run with a co-ST, it seems like we have a taker and a stable of players to choose from.  I hadn't thought about a human game, so that could work, but I've never been a fan of hunters, either with a small or large "h."

That being said, where do things stand?

OK, ladies and gentlemen. It will be my first game as a GM here, but certainly not in my career.

I'm quite willing to start Werewolf:The Forsaken game, set somewhere in South Eastern Europe. The place is good for several reasons:

-Lots of rural areas with dwindling or scarce population.
-Diverse geography. You can climb down from almost 3000 meters to the seashore and then go 1600m up an island in less than 24 hours.
-Abundance of recent military conflicts, remnants from the old regimes, active organized crime...
-Rich historical past. And I don't mean the Ancient Greek only.
- Last but not least, I know the region well, so descriptions will be accurate.

I point to the first quote.  That of the original poster of this thread.   He was not interested in a W;tF game.   So instead of hijacking his thread for trying to get a game going in which he is seeking.  It would be better suited you and others that are bent on a werewolf game.  Create a new thread of recruiting for such a game.

So we should just post second topic about WoD, which would be more inconvenient, but won't be 'hijacking'? I can and it would be even easier to spot, but I don't really think that it is the optimal decision. Imagine a separate topic from me, another from Krysia, another from someone else and other topics that start to fall out of first page. Not practical, Asherah...

Your missing the point on this.  The original poster that started this thread.  Has named the games of W.O.D.  that he like to play.   I am just stating a simple fact.   I am a long time World of Darkness player,  an my venue of choice has been W;tA an now W;tF.

I am not trying to start an argument or step on anyone's toes.   But it is cheesy to exclude the main person that started this query of establishing a game.   Because it is not the venue he prefers to play in.     An to come back an say that we each should start a thread is nothing more then ludicrous.

Why another topic my setting can include a werewolf or two, well even other supernaturals its effectively neutral ground where those that don't want to play the games of their kind can come, and defend. The vamps were all Unaligned.

And everyone can play a supernatural AND a mortal who is not likely to be a hunter. Think college students, locals and others that are just normal folks who may know after some time the place is just unusual.

I just can't run anything but mortals and vampires, a co-st can handle others.

Whatever. 

It's called "good manners".  The thread was set up to propose a V:tM, V:tR, M:tA, or C:tL game, not a W:tA/W:tF game.  Now, you've basically cluttered the original poster's thread with meaningless chatter that does nothing to advance the interests that he was trying to set forth or get started.  Basic etiquette and manners suggest that you start a thread for your own idea(s) rather than taking over someone else's.

It still might be better for you to make your own thread for that. Not everyone will look here to find out you want a nwod mta game. If you make your own thread then you'll get people who are interested in just that looking over the thread. As it stands the Subject of this thread is wod old or new, not just mta.

Well as fun as it sounds I can't Storytell my characters and have fun so I was thinking one player could do that and I handle the rest. But I can only do vamps and mortals since those are the books I have.
