I've waited quite awhile to make this post but its been awhile coming. A bit back I had proposed to start a small chronicle to help segway and test our players in new interesting ways. Now that things have settled down, we're all on friendly terms, and have a better understanding of each other, I'm actually following through.

The Premise

Unknown to the world a brood of kindred have slept the ages away in torpor hidden and virtually untouched until the modern age. Due to the machinations of the kindred and human world your long slumber has been disturbed. Upon waking you find yourself in an alien and incredibly different world from what you may have known. The problem is due to the drastic ammount of time spent in torpor, your mind has some what deteriorated and you cannot remember much about your life before waking. Though there are some inklings of who and what you were before, you are for all intents and purposes a blank slate, a newborn in a world you know very little about.

The idea is to allow players a chance to play a character outside their comfort zone. More often than not players gravitate around certain archetypes, clans, and nature/demanors. Through this I hope to allow everyone to explore and experience different types of play from different points of view in an open user - friendly environment. This chronicle will be using Vampire: The Masquerade Revised rules.

Mechanics

Characters

For this chronicle the character sheets will be created and handled for you. Each sheet will have a certain theme, and the players would be expected to roleplay the characters based on the information provided. The basics of their personality will be defined by their starting Nature/Demeanor as well as their starting attributes. There will be 20 sheets made, and each player will have the chance (on a first come first server basis) to roll a d20 as to claim that particular sheet as indicated by the number of their roll (you roll a 20 for example and you become the player of sheet 20.) There will be no re-rolls except in the case of a tie, in which the player whom rolled the number first gets the sheet and the other player has to re-roll. Sheets will be presented after the rolling is concluded.


Development
As the players progress through the chapters, they will not be granted XP as per normal. Instead they will be granted progression dots to show that they are remembering slightly more of their life from before their torpid sleep, in which they can distribute freely. Players who do exceptionally well, and voted by the community will be allowed an extra dot to distribute as they see fit. At base each of the sheets will have much less "power" than a normal fresh made VTM character.

-------------------------------------------------------------

If you have need of anymore information do post your questions or comments here. Everyone is welcome, not just the players of the current chronicle but also everyone whom visits the forum. There will be 20 spots open for players and it will be first come first serve on what sheet everyone gets. I'm hoping this will help get some of the people interested in playing into the game, even if they have minimal knowledge of the core rules.

Also after discussing things with Radical21 there is also talk of tying in the result of this exercise with the main chronicle going on. Those joining will be able to help shape the community of kindred within our burgeoning world.


Again if you have any questions or comments, or interest in joining please do post on this thread.

There is no set date for start as of yet, but I plan to start on most of the preliminary work that I need done this week. It all depends on how much interest is generated and how many players decide to join. Do note that once the chronicle gets underway that the opportunity to join will be closed, so if you DO wish to play you'll have to do so with everyone else. Again there will be 20 reserved slots, and those not taken will be lost.

Sounds like fun. I'm in, as long as it won't interfere with the current chronicle in any way.
I'm a pretty regular poster, so it shouldn't.

I am interested to see which character archetypes we're looking at.

I am in as well.

Don't think it will interfere, Play by Post tends to have 'off- time' when waiting for other people to post so having two PbP games is a good idea.

No one is too new :> and everyone is invited. I'll start getting things together this week and next. That should give everyone else enough time to chime in if they are interested.

I'm in as well!  It's fun and exciting trying to role play out of a comfort zone.  I feel like this roll is going to be like a game show who's name I can't remember off the of my head.

Big money, big money, no whammies, no whammies, STOP!

I'm glad to see everyone is on board. I'm just putting the finishing touches on the sheets right now, so we'll start dice rolls tomorrow. I decided since not so many were opting in, to only go with 15 sheets, so it'll be a D15 (I know odd but its more than enough.)

Anyway, after everyone gets settled with their character, you'll be able to assign your own virtues and therefore humanity/willpower. (Standard 7 points.) I'll go ahead and make a thread for the rolls when we can get started, then setup the intro after everyone finalizes their sheet and if they have any other questions.

I encourage more people to apply to fill up all the slots, and if needed have me make more sheets :>

Theres still a few sheets left. I'll leave this open for another day or so. We should be getting started tonight though if everything goes as planned. I'll set up OOC and IC threads when ready.
