    Well, ya, but imagine if that weren't so and all these 60s shows were set in the WoD.
    What would that make the Mission Impossible Team? or Mary Poppins and the Flying Nun?

    I'm imagining a super serious technocracy game scene ruined by "The Cone of Silence!!!"

    Ya, it's stupid but I find it funny.

      Oh, you would not be enjoying my campaign at all.

      To some degree, I wonder if you're doing yourself a disservice by ignoring the political aspects of the game. The whole thing is built around exploring philosophical belief structures and what those structures incite people to do. Even if you're not meaning to, that's going to be there.

        Oh for the story's sake I will involve politics, but I guess I should state in a tactful manner if that makes sense

          To ChristopherZacher,

          So, how's the game shaping up so far? In such a setting, I'd have liked to play a young, impressionable university student Ecstatic. Any new cool stuff set up yet?

            Well I have the general plot for the story so far setup, but not too many details in it yet as I am only about 60 pages into M20

            Is there a way to add spoiler tags here?

              So I talked to the players and they won't read in here, so here is what I have so far...


              I am thinking of having the story be about, in a nutshell, the conflict between a powerful Marauder and a powerful Nephandi.

              The Marauder as had the Quiet happen to them which pulled them into the Umbra realm of LSD. This was after a pretty huge battle with the Nephandi, and the Nephandi has no idea what happened to the Marauder when it first happened. The Nephandi who is also severely weakened realizes a decade later what could have possible happened to the Marauder and how the Marauder's essence is trying to accomplish something with the increased use of LSD in the culture.

              The Nephandi decides to somehow manipulate events that lead to the Summer of Love, where it will manipulate "darkness" to overcome the LSD movement. Such as the weird cults (Manson, Process church etc), drugs, crime, and what eventually leads to the downfall of the hippie culture, which to the Nephandi is defeating the Marauder's goal.

              The story is kind of inspired by Clive Barker's The Great and Secret Show.

                Sounds fun with a bit of a creepy vibe. The realm of LSD reminds me of this book, "Supernatural" by Graham Hancock.
                You may want to look it up.

                It's about mind altering substances, the development of civilization, and strange supernatural phenomenon.

                  Yeah, I'll add it to my list.

                  As to the creepy vibe, that is exactly what I am aiming for. I trying to have all of the games I run on my Youtube channel have some element of continuity, and this game will have a small creepy element of it too.

                          Think of Crumbs graphic novels...
                          Vietnam War...
                          Perhaps Rosswell aliens and the race to the moon...
                          What is your version of the Technocracy especially the Men in Black?

                          (Edited misspelled " moon")

                            I honestly don't have an answer when it comes to the Technocracy. I am only about 60 pages into m20th atm.
