  • Help! with my Super Chronicle

    I've embarked on a massive chronicle that revolves around metaplot but still leaves room for regular stories. the plan is to take the characters through 30 years ending with the apocalypse scenarios, with the twist of actually saving the world, or with the traditions rebuilt from ruin



    The Story Thus Far
    it's 1993, The Luxor and The Black Pyramid Chantry, yes i'm using fallen tower, has just opened and the pc's where invited to join after taking out a nephandic proffesor. They met important npc's at the grand opening of the luxor. and then were sent by Ralph Cannon to help Red with his "UFO investigation" Red presented the cabal with a crazy plan to shoot down a ufo with a jurry riged missle launcher, reds a tech sorcerer with hellfire, and then scavenge the ship for alien tech. He gets abducted in the middle of the night and in the morning the cabal tries to save him by shooting down a UFO that their radar picked up. It turned out to be a void ship investigating the spacial disturbance left over from reds abduction, they killed 5 of it's crew in the initial blast. The dreamspeaker character had shape shifted into a crazy chimera monster after the ships initial defenses tried to capture them. so when they boarded the vesel he was still in chimera form so it's sole survivor Major Thomas Houston knew they where devients and attacked the pc's knock him unconscious they loot the ship and get out befor the technocracy sends a recovery team.


    The outline for the chronicles.
    The PC's will go to Doissetep shortly before it's fall where they'll uncover a conspiracy to assassinate porthos fitz empress this story would climax with Doisseteps fall and the cabal escaping to Horizon. I would love some ideas for a story their, i havn't gotten through much of horizons book yet. by 2000 the pc's should be back on earth. the first idea i had was their forced to flee Horizon Mid avatar storm The archmages would combining their power to hold off the storm while Horizon is evacuated many will be shreded by the storm in the attempt to flee and eventualy the archmagi will be overrun. the players survive the evacuation.
    the other idea i had is that the players return during the week of nightmares and witness Zapathasura and his destruction first hand, possibley raiding horizons armory in hopes of fighting him
    I would like to know what book covers the week of nightmares, and if they don't already exist come up with stats for zap, and yes I want the players to survive possibley even actually dent the damn thing befor the nukes and sun sattelite and i know that's not what whitewolf intended but "fuck you it's a creative medium" XD love that quote. after the avatar storm the players will be investigating the transmissions of the rouge council and rebuilding the traditions potentially becoming leadership figures for their respective traditions. The Chronicle could end their but i have a crazy idea. Now is where the outline blurs into just an idea I haven't looked into it too much, and i'm not sure if it's even feasible but the awsome idea is that after the traditions revocer from winter into spring, each and every one of the end time scenarios from the Ascension book will play out one after the other, with custom victory endings, the Chronicle ends proper after Hell on Earth again with a victory option.

    that's my crazy overly ambitions Chronicle outline. any ideas for how to get it form A to Z. the imediate goal is getting it from A(story thus far) to B (Doissetep)

    PS apologies for any spelling mistakes please don't point them out.

    Born in a very religious family highly against magic and the supernatural. As a gypsy, I was raised to ignore that side of my ancestry and be a very conservative and modest woman. At age 17 my parents disowned me so I moved in with my cousin, Debra. Once I turned 18 I started looking for a line of work that could offer more money. In doing so, I became a prostitute. After doing this for a few years I left Los Angeles and moved to Vegas, continuing my line of work. I ran into a striking woman named Madam Silver when working one evening, and she took me in as one of her girls. Apparently, she noticed some magic in me and discreetly started teaching me about it without telling me. After another few years, she introduced me into the Cult of Ecstasy.

    Tradition: Sons of Ether
    Mentor: Ralph Cannon
    Age- 20

    Hair -Red

    Back Story:
    Bingham was born and Raised in Las Vegas. Both his mother and father worked in the Luxor casino. He is the oldest of 4 siblings. His three sisters Kimmy 18 , Samatha 17, and Lindsey 14. He was raised in the Morman faith, but found over the years that he struggled with reconciling what he knew about science and engineering with his spirituality.
    He was truly a good boy who honored his mother and father and the commandments. He became more lax in following the words of wisdom as he neared the end of high school. One fateful night he got talked into going to a party by his friends. There he had his first drink of alcohol. He only remembered the next ten minutes before things went black. He woke up in the hospital the next day his parents looking down at him with shame in their eyes. It was his first big mistake and even though the scriptures teach forgivness it seemed he would not be getting it anytime soon from his community.
    Rumors of that night spread to the church as his father had called the bishop to give a blessing when they were unsure why he was hospitalized. From there all the girls in church and school gossiped and it left him with no prospects for dating or prom for that matter. Bingham just couldn't understand, he hadn't hurt anyone, but why was God punishing for having 1 drink. He through himself into his studies to help distract himself from how much he was hurting inside.
    By the end of his last day of high school he had raised his grades significantly. He planned to attend the university of Nevada Las Vegas to get a degree in Mechanical engineering. But he was unable to get the funding for the first year and missed the grant process entirely. His parents told him that he was unwelcome to remain under their house unless he was going to work and save money for a mission. With little

    Name: Michael McNeil
    Mentor: Listens to Wind
    Age- 26
    Weight - 180Lbs
    Height - 5'9"
    Hair - Dirty Blonde
    Eyes - Brown
    Nationality - American
    Ethnicity - Scottish and Navajo
    -Backstory
    I was raised on a large farm in the Pacific northwest where all the food came from animals we hunted or fished and all of our vegetables and fruits were what we grew and my whole life my family taught me to use every Part of the animal, using the hide to make belts, jackets and other supplies even making tents when we had gathered enough hide, Using the meat for food freezing some and drying or curing others and the organs for feeding our gardens and dogs.
    I was also taught to only take what I need from the land and we grew our own trees specifically for our firewood and replanting when we cleared an area cycling the land. We powered the farm off of a combination of several Wind Turbines and a Water mill my father and grandfather built on the river that ran through the 100 acres of land we had.
    My mother is Native american From the Navajo tribe of the american southwest and my father was a Scottish Immigrant from the highlands. I have 4 sibling being 3 brothers and 1 sister all younger than myself. Being the oldest I had to pull much more weight around the farm being my Fathers go to for aid around the farm learning how to raise animals and rotate crops, he taught me about the land and how to track I learned how to work with my hands and how to fix things; my father made sure to teach me everything I know. Over the Years I became an excellent hunter by the time I was 17 I had learned to track and dress most animals and knew how to fix anything I needed to on the farm.
    When I was 23 my Oldest Brother and I were falling some trees preparing for winter and suddenly one of the trees fell in a way we were not expecting and my Brother was mortally wounded by a Large branch and the life left him while I held him in my arms and as tears fell down my face I felt a power well up inside of me and something told me to lay my hands upon his wounds and when I did I felt the power leave my body and suddenly his wounds were healed and his breath came back to his chest it began to rise and fall and his eyes opened again I told him all would be well and his eyes closed. I looked at him and could just see that all way better and he was in perfect health
    I stood ready to go get my father to help me carry him back but I just stood stunned at what had happened I saw the life leave his eyes and now he was alive again his chest slowly rising and falling. A few moments later a man walked out of the woods and snapped me back to reality he was a native american man who went by Listens to Wind. He Called himself a Dream Speaker and offered his hand saying "You have a gift and great power let me take you to my master and he can show you how to use this power to help people" I looked at him stunned ready to tell him to go fuck himself but something in me told me to go with him and I looked at my Brother passed out next to the tree his chest slowly rising and falling I nodded Calling my father on the Walkie Talkie telling him our location and once I heard the sound of his ATV coming closer I took the mans hand. He grabbed a talisman at his chest and we both were suddenly in a hut I looked around and an old native american man before I could speak he raised a hand to silence me and said "My name is Red Hawk and you have a great power inside you if you choose I can teach you how to use this power inside you but know it will not be easy it will require you put everything you have into it but I will teach you all I know, So boy what do you say would you like to Learn?" I nodded and we spoke for hours and he told me this power I have is called Magick and told me of the power inside me and the Potential. I trained with Red Hawk in his hut learning how to change my form to that of beasts and how to heal myself and others something inside me urging me to learn and take all the knowledge to grow like I have never wanted to before.
    I Became best friends with with Listens to wind who I would later find out was a spirit mage while I was life mage and our mentor Red Hawk is a master of both and held in very high esteem in the world of mages. He was several hundred years old using his life magic to prolong his life.
    After a couple years of training I was brought to a sacred site only used for this Ceremony one in which I was killed and sent to the spirit world. I will not speak of my challenges and the things I faced here just know it was something that changed me for the rest of my life.
    From this point I was aloud by my mentor to travel the world on my own I convened with spirits in the near umbra and I ran with wolves in a form like their own. I flew through the sky over great forest, Plains and Deserts but also swam deep into the oceans, Lakes and Rivers. I have met some Were Creatures and lucky for me they were friendly enough and Thankfully aloud me to live. I recently have found a lover a Verbena and she has some friends that are mages. Maybe it is time to slow down for a time find a place to place myself maybe make my own home in the wilderness near the city

        The PC's will go to Doissetep shortly before it's fall where they'll uncover a conspiracy to assassinate porthos fitz empress this story would climax with Doisseteps fall and the cabal escaping to Horizon. I would love some ideas for a story their, i havn't gotten through much of horizons book yet.
        Doissetep it's a chantry full of intrigue, powerful mages, Artifacts, magical creatures. It could be a nice place to make a vampire-like political story, where the PC can get stuff and teaching in exchange of favors, which could get them into trouble. It could also be used for any number of stories involving high fantasy and nasty old mages.

        On the other hand Doissetep it's in Mars. So martians. They were chasing an UFO, they could be interested in finding alien stuff. Perhaps the ruins of an ancient martian civilization, filled with machinery and martian ghosts. This may be the hook that get's them to Doissetep in the first place.

        Doissetep it's also at the door of the Realm of Force, a unique place to study the Sphere of the same name populated with spirits related to that aspect of True Magick. An oportunity for any user of that aspect of magic (warning: you need Forces 2 to survive that aspect of the Realm)

        I would like to know what book covers the week of nightmares
        Time of Thin Blood.
        , and if they don't already exist come up with stats for zap, and yes I want the players to survive
        Zap hasn't stats, but he should rougly be able to barely survive 3 nukes after fighting 3 methusalems for 3 days in the midst of supernatural storm and an army of spirits (some summoned by him, some by the Kuei). So have fun with that.

        Doissetep does allow the PC to get almost any kind of mystical deus-ex-machina - including esoteric artifacts, the help of dragons and powerful elementals, angels and demons bound by oaths (and to fetishes), magical nukes, etc...all of which should require some effort to aquire from the jealous power hungry archmages.

        Ultimately, you decide how hard it's to dent zap.

        Now is where the outline blurs into just an idea I haven't looked into it too much, and i'm not sure if it's even feasible but the awsome idea is that after the traditions revocer from winter into spring, each and every one of the end time scenarios from the Ascension book will play out one after the other, with custom victory endings, the Chronicle ends proper after Hell on Earth again with a victory option.
        Ambitious. I think it's possible but would require to change more than the endings. For instance, in some scenarios "the Masquerade" breaks almost immediately while in others it holds up. The Technocracy doesn't have the same end in each scenario, in some it's disbanded or changes it's form, in others it's destroyed.

            Examples of what? About the different endings?

            If it's the different endings, you don't have more than to look at ToJ. The Technocracy in Ascencion looses the VE and ends allying with the Traditions or perishing; in the second end-word scenario they're unstoppable but divide between the idealists that join the Craftmasons and control-lovers, and they're most certainly not allied with the Traditions (albeit the idealists could); in the meteorite ending they intend to blow up the meteorite w/o asking about the plans of the Traditions; in the final ending they get killed by Al-Aswad.
