Red Hand Chronicles is a site for telling stories in the World of Darkness. This is not a 'freeform' writing forum; we use the Storytelling system (using God Machine Chronicles) to help shape and guide our stories. In part this means RHC is a gaming site, but ultimately the goal of RHC is to provide a safe environment to create awesome stories about the things that go bump in the night.
Given our chosen medium (these forums) you have to write to participate on RHC, but this does not mean you have to be a writer. Amateurs, professionals, hobbyists, newbies and veterans - everyone is welcome, and we celebrate everyone's unique talents and creative contributions to the telling of our stories.
Red Hand Chronicles currently features three chronicles:
Newcastle: Tides of Madness is a Vampire chronicle set in modern-day Newcastle, England. The Praxis of Tinanmuòe has been held under the unwaivering control of the Queen of Hearts for as long as anyone (Kindred or Kine) can remember, however, even She cannot elude the oppressive weight of time. As the Bloody Queen approaches eclipse, would be successors plots and position themselves for the dark nights ahead.
Wolfridge: High School is Hell is meant as a more lighthearted venue. Wolfridge is set in the fictitious small town of Wolfridge, Wyoming and centers around life at the local highschool. The chronicle begins on the first day of high school. But Wolfridge isn't just any old town in the American west... this sleepy little community has one of the highest populations of People (both Blood and Uratha) in the United States. Teenagers and werewolves... what could go wrong?
The Circus: It's Intense is a Mage chronicle and is intended to be a more intimate experience. Our newest chronicle follows a travelling circus across the country who uses the excitement of spectacle to awaken the mysteries of a hidden universe. Join us as a mage, our re-imagined sleepwalkers gifted with illuminated abilities, or one of the gullible masses! Step into the ring and prepare to be amazed!
Chronicles are open-ended, permitting players to join at anytime, so please please visit us at redhandchronicles.com!
