  • Looking to play Demon: the Decent

    I have been reading through the Demon: The Descent as I have a great interest in running this game, but whenever I read through a new system I don't really get a feel for the game and mechanics unless I run through it as a player and so far finding anyone who has played it has become somewhat difficult.

    For this reason, I thought I'd seek out a game on the official forums.

    I'm basically looking for an already assembled group I can join--preferably with an experienced Storyteller--so that things run fairly smoothly and I can learn the gameplay mechanics properly. Whether it's with experienced players or fellow novices works for me.

    I own copy of the core book, revisions for 2nd Ed of CoD, as well as the Flowers of Hell Players Guide.

    I should state that I am actually well versed in classic WoD settings and have run quite a few games, but am an amateur when it comes to the new settings and lore mainly because it never held much interest for me personally.

    But when I heard the rave about Demon I decided to take a look and was pleasantly surprised by the setting and the style of the game and wanted to try it myself.

    Any games with open spots or any recommendations would be appreciated

    Thank You :-)

    Ive run a short DtD game before. Im looking to play the darn thing myself. If you don't find a game I could give you some pointers I learned from the short experience I had with the setting.

      Also it always makes me laugh how when there is any activity in these DtD threads, the view count starts increasing quicker.

        Lol, actually yea any advice would be greatly appreciated. I have read a few play by posts and seen some character concepts thus far, but still, have not found any live games. A real pity.

          Alrighty a'here I go:
          Tips (From my experience with Demon)
          1. If it doesn't make into the game don't worry about it. Demons got a lot of cool stuff (Gadgets, Hacking Infrastructure, Facades, etc), but trying to include it all got over whelming for me and my players.

          2. Think of ways complications can be turned into assets. I didn't present any possibilities to turn problems around on themselves, so me and my players didn't get the full espionage experience.

          3. Demon powers are OP. If it feels like the players are just relying on there powers, then they are. Let them do it, but every once in a while through a wrench into the scenario.

          4. Secrets, secrets, secrets. I would normally have things out in the open. It's a game of ciphers, secret locations, and passwords. Really push this, but don't force it.

          5. Take it slow. My greatest failure is I let things progress too quickly, denying my players time to stop and think about what was going on.

          6. Keep Covers simple. I had a player that had a Cover within a Cover. It got complicated quick. Keep it simple.

          Some of these are common sense, I suppose. Some of these are because I'm a poopy GM, I suppose lol. Hope this little tid-bit helps. If you have any questions about the setting itself, please don't hesitate to ask!

                I would like to play as well. I am not familiar enough to run it, but I could certainly play it! I have only played Demons in cross over games.

                  Lol yea in truth I would like to run one, but I always prefer to start as a player before going too deep into running a game, I feel I get a better understanding from someone with experience taking the reigns as it where.

                    I just finished at my college. So I'm off now. So I can run if you guys really want to play. Though I rather play lol.
