  • Well, the fortnightly pace is continuing for 2019, and since I'm out of town again this coming weekend it'll continue another fortnight at least. Hopefully we can get back to weekly games shortly afterwards. Anyway, after the action packed adventures of last time, we settled in for a game a bit more focussed on uhhhh how do we deal with a packmate sitting on 10 Aggravated Damage?

    Session 20

    The Scream of Slaughter's breath was still steaming from its broken body when the Harbingers felt the approach of something new. The tarp covering the hole in the roof above their...

  • The weirdest thing about designing the books with this in mind though is that they're no longer sitting on a shop's bookshelves waiting to be picked up and flipped through to inform purchase decision making. These are books generally being purchased by people who know in advance that they want to play, or at least confident enough to take that risk. I agree that reading cover to cover is for the minority, but it feels unnecessary to design the books so that they hook prospective players in the first few pages. It's pretty clear from the contents page where the character specific stuff is, and...

  • Yeah, this never fails to frustrate me. I'm invariably the GM running the game, so having the information presented out of order (presumably in the hope of scenarios like the ones Second Chances and ArcaneArts mention, that the players will start thinking up characters straight away before they have the full context) is pretty meaningless in terms of "sucking me in" and just makes me feel like I need to reread the first chapter again to fully grok it. Meanwhile I've never had a player try to read a rules book cover to cover, so having the character-related stuff presented up front is...

  • Yeah, we've gone back and forth a little on how to handle Renown in the game. We actually ended up removing the experience cost for it, because early on the players were both gaining Renown at a relatively brisk trot and not gaining beats very quickly (it always seems to take my groups about 5-10 sessions to get into the groove of beat generation). That left them in so much experience debt that they didn't really feel like they had control of their characters' progression. I think Aed, who had gained a point of Glory for taking on the Herald in the underground Shadow on his own, reached a point...

  • Session 19

    In a small home in the dead of winter, a Werewolf named Regan and a Claimed named Adele drank tea and ate biscuits while they waited for a score of hunting crows to find their prey. Regan learned many new things about his new friend. She worked as a fortune teller, a fact which grew more ominous as he came to understand the nature of the creature sitting across from him. Her essence had long since seeped into the mirrors among which she made her home. The visions seen in them, of an older Regan scarred and haunted, were a manifestation of that essence. His eager questioning...

  • Boy that session was long and dense, introducing two new significant NPCs in Wade and the woman on Orchardville Crescent. There were a lot of great roleplaying moments that I really liked. Aed winning Wade's help by offering him a hot meal did a great job of highlighting just how sad the Ghost Wolf's plight must be, while Old Man Mountain and Regan bonding over music was just cute, and the Iule-Aaron phone call made for a good laugh. I feel like we got to really cut loose and have a lot of fun with a pretty broad selection of the NPCs, new and established, this game.

  • Session 18

    The two packs left the gently discorporating bodies of the slain spirits, and the ruined cadaver of the Magath, behind them as they ventured back out into the tunnels. Only Dorian paused, spitting on the body of his pack's former totem. They followed the current in the dark until they reached the ladder they had used to enter the underground river system. That was when a figured stepped out of the darkness, illuminated by the faintly glowing lightbulbs near the entrance. A voice boomed, accusing them all of trespass. The figure was thin, a man with a scraggly growth of...
