I'd be more than interested in playing.  Mage is my favorite WoD game.  :)

Very nice. I just googled 'mage WoD' and read about both of them, cuz I'm inquisitive like that. Both seem quite fascinating, and I'd be more than willing to join a game in either setting.

I posted the Character Sheet. I'll see about posting a premise and starting a character thread later tonight. The main books I'll be using are the Core WoD book, Mage: The Awakening, Armory and Armory: Reloaded. If you have another book you'd like to use lemme know. If you don't have the books I've listed, then lemme know and I'll see what I can't do to help. The internet after all is a wonderful thing.

The story will take place in New Orleans, starting date is August 22, 2005. I have a story idea in mind, but a lot of the smaller details will be tailored to the Cabal proper.

Well, I think I know what might be happening but I won't say anything.  ^^;

Is it standard character creation other than having 10 Merit points instead of 7?  Are there any particular restrictions?

Has this yet begun?  If not, I may want to join.  I do have a few questions first, though.

Can you give me a general idea of the themes involved in this game?  I'd like to have an idea of what type of story I would be involved in.

What kind of conflict should we expect to see?  Will this be Players vs Environment, Players vs Enemis, Players vs Rivals, Players vs Players, Players vs Self?

How are the Paths & Orders involved in this story?  I notice in your Character List that the council seems to be made up of representatives of the Paths, rather than Orders or Cabals.  Can you tell me something about why that is?  (Either in character historically, Out of character thematically, or however you want to look at the question)

I'm new to Elliquiy.  Is there a game thread that I'm not seeing?  Are you limiting starting Gnosis to 1, or can it be raised with Merit dots, as usual?  It looks like no starting XP, which usually signifies young characters; is that an accurate assumption?  How old/long awakened do you want characters to be?  Are there certain elements that you require/forbid/suggest for backgrounds?)

When I play in a game like Mage, I like very much to feel a part of the setting, and to interact with the elements intrinsic to it.  Is there anything about your setting, other than the real world New Orleans, or the core M:tA(NWoD) material, that is a visible, significant part of the setting?

No the game has no yet started, and as for all of your questions Tomalak, why don't you play and see?

I ask these questions so that I can determine whether or not the game sounds like fun to me.  After all, if I don't see any chance of the game being enjoyable, why play?  On the other hand, perhaps the game would suit my style, in which case, I'd hate to miss it.

If your intent is to withhold information regarding thematic & general plot type in order to be mysterious, then I respectfully request that you state mystery as part of the theme when describing your game. 

I know how disappointing it is to have a player leave a game that's currently in progress.  One of the reasons I believes this happens is because the participants are not on the same page regarding what they want to get out of the game.  Don't you think the game would be more fun if everybody knew what kind of game to expect going in?
