Ahh, our thread is just overflowing with cute n' fuzzy adorableness now!
Anyway, I've received a few PMs and I guess my short description in the first post was a bit unclear so I'll try to clarify things a bit more.
The plot/storyline that this game is mostly going to revolve around is the interaction and character development between the five main characters. The rest of the characters are just support and will help to push and pull the plot in different directions. I didn't make a set goal or anything for this game since I felt that it would be more interesting to just let the characters develop and see where it goes.
So this game will mostly be focused on character development which will in turn affect the storyline as we go. Questions that may help nudge our brains a bit:
How will the clans react to each other when they're finally gathered and meeting in one place again after so many years? To the Brujah coven I'm thinking that it may just be irritating to them, having to act more refined and civilized than they usually would. The Malkavians may find it uncomfortable, suddenly surrounded by society after so many years of isolation and seclusion. The Altare? Probably feeling very uptight, enemies on their turf and yet having to treat them with icy hospitality. The wolves' hackles are probably rising as well, so many vampires that they have no obligations towards right in their faces. Unfortunately I can't say anything for the Ravnos yet but we shall see that soon enough hopefully.
Other questions and thoughts:
The trio had grudgingly agreed to share power all those years ago, but none had truly wished for it, wanting instead to rule wholly by themselves. Will they begin planning and plotting once again? Trying to gain an upper hand somehow? Perhaps leave the game of knife and daggers to their subordinates while they concentrate on the goal of having an heir possibly birthed to them (heir - more power to you, man)? Perhaps one is more important to the other, how will it play out? Perhaps none of it matters, so many years have passed? Maybe they can come to terms with the Altare's viewpoint and agree to it? Or will they continue to refuse it, sticking to the ways that have continued for so many thousands of years? Possibly, the Queen becomes too much of a nuisance, forget politics force is so much faster and more efficient. How will she react to the hostility on her own lands?
These are really just my own questions and ramblings of 'what ifs'. None of these have to happen, and most of them may not happen at all. Some of them could come to pass but end up completely different from imagined. I find it interesting to keep guessing and wondering.
How does this sound to everyone? Does this little piece of mindless thought make things a bit clearer? (Okay, I know that made no sense at all, but amuse me.)
Oh, and I'm thinking that it may be easier to just keep the game in one thread instead of in separate threads? (Of course, it's really dependent on what happens and etc so this can easily change.) Perhaps each clan starts out with short opening introductory posts of their current situation, a brief 'memory' as they reminisce in order to let the readers be up to date with where each clan and person is at, and then after a few posts of interaction start moving to meet at...Altare lands (since I'm sort of envisioning the Altare lands to be a sanctuary of sorts, what with all the misfits gathered there...aka Fangless and wolfies)? Then the rest of the interacting and whatnot can begin to truly commence there since everyone is all in one place now?
