  • Like Penitent Tom said, it was a specific case.




    I am going to roleplay Beltane, well some of it. Lorelei and Insincere Marguerite attended, Jacob and Calamity got up to other stuff.

    So...about the second trigger. I had a Come to Jesus moment with the players, in which I warned them I would be playing up the effects of low Clarity (hallucinations , delusions, lack of touch with reality) and that something was in the city that can do things to really warp senses of reality for PCs with less than 5 Clarity. As Jacob and Calamity had four months of...

  • Calamity’s Little Black Book

    Thursday, April 30th
    Nine years, one month, twenty-three days
    Days without stabbing: too damned many

    I promised Dr Emmett that I would start writing these again so here I fucking am. Just re-read the last few entries and it was all I could do not to just burn the damn thing. But then I might forget what happened. I might forget just how colossally fucking stupid I was. I might forget that They were right. No, I need to keep it and remind myself that when you let your guard down you get fucking stabbed.

    Because that’s...

  • It’s been about four months. It’s Walpurgis Night, one year from the founding of the Dream House. What events are taking place at the Lady by the Sea?

    This time we have Calamity and Lorelei’s coverage of the downtime.

    Session LXXXVIII


    Lorelei’s Diary


    Okay, so maybe it took me a tiny bit longer than I’d intended to pick up a new blank book to use as a diary. Like, maybe… four months or so. My bad. Things have been slow for a while, and… well, there were some things I didn’t feel particularly keen on dwelling on at...

  • It’s time to check back in with the Krewe as they investigate the lost Sire.

    Session CLXXXV

    Sara’s Stories

    Tommy poked his head out as Sara closed the front door. The rest of his body followed slowly, and he leaned on the door frame, regarding her seriously. She moved over close, putting her hands on her hips. “Is it past my curfew?” she asked archly, a wide smile taking any sting out of the sarcastic comment.

    He didn’t smile back. “No. I heard you tell Emily you’d be back. I wanted to make sure you were alright.”

    Sara...

  • As we reach the penaultimate session in the storyline, it is the raid on the Lake of Tears. The name is appropriate; Not all victories feel good, or even like victories.

    Session LVIII


    Marek’s Thoughts

    22 August 1925

    I want to find Ludovico and kill him slowly with my claws, then have Greta raise him as a zombie and I’ll do it again. When I find him he will know pain. I will give Tatiana the chance to kill him though. She deserves that after all that she’s been through. I will hurt him nonetheless for what his men did to my pack mates....

  • No problem, thank you.

    As for the second part I agree, and thought that last session went especially well. IM's before and after experiences (touched in first in the short story awhile back now this) humanizes the character a bit more, and the ending of her being togather with them this year feels very christmas-y.

  • There are OOC reasons that it was handled that way. I can't really say more than that. The best option was to move on, and let the game heal. The rest of the aspects of why the decision was made are not going to be aired out here.

  • Taidragon: Thank you so much. Yeah Speed's were amazing...only downside is other players felt less of a need due to her catching all the angles. We are all still playing in the group, just not that night or those circumstances. Thanks for well wishes, glad you enjoyed.

    Vent0: Yeah, no one is happy with it. I have asked people to write Epilogues if they can, but we will see. I will absolutely post them if so. I don't...really have specific arcs planned for my pure sandbox games (Balance of Shadows, Malibu Dream House, Night Train Detective Agency) It's all very player driven with...

  • Jacob’s Journal

    As per usual I got up early this morning so I could go to therapy. I met up with Calamity and we started off. On the way to the clinic she apologized for backing Stasia in her attempts to seduce my sister. She said that she and Stasia were like sisters, so she went along with what her friend was doing out of habit. She then expressed concerns that having done so would ruin our relationship and she didn’t want to do that. She wanted to make sure that things were still okay between us. I told her that I understood why she did what she did. I would back my brother’s...

  • It’s the final show before Christmas, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day as we wrap up this leg of Malibu Dream House. We get some story, we get some downtime, (from some characters, others will be covered start of next session) as we have the final (in world) session before Walpurgis Night. Settle in!

    Session LXXXVII

    Lorelei’s Diary

    Happy Holidays, everyone!

    I’m writing this in the waning hours of Christmas Day, 2014, sad to see the holiday season (and its effect on Marguerite’s personality) fading, but excited at the prospect...

    That really is viciously offensive and bigoted.

  • I bring bad news.

    OOC circumstances outside my control have conspired to make it impossible to continue to run Night Train Detective Agency. It is a situation none of us are remotely happy about; I think I can speak for the entire group when I say that the circumstances that compelled this were unfortunate and we all wish the game could continue.

    Unfortunately, I can’t really discuss them, for privacy reasons. I am sorry to see the game end. We all are. We had a good team, and a good game.

    These circumstances were specific to Night Train Detective Agency...

  • Time to look into the Middle Shadows Krewe. No Natalie journal due to a minor crisis, but we have a Sara

    Session CLXXXIV

    Sara’s Stories

    Emily stood awkwardly at her door after I walked in. I sat crosslegged on her bed after pulling a chair close, and gestured at her to sit. She came closer, hesitantly at first, then at a more normal pace after a welcoming smile. I guided her to sit sideways on the chair, perpendicular to the bed, and began rubbing her shoulders. “Stressful day, huh?” She made an assenting noise, her focus on my hands kneading her tense...

  • It’s time for Golden Eagle! Due to circumstances beyond my control, we only have a Tatiana journal this time. Jacob’s player was out of town and there was no Lizette due to a minor crisis. I will have a brief summery at the end.

    Session LVII

    Tatiana’s Conversations

    I was not running from the lizard, impertinent volchonok!

    There was an invisible... something with it. Probably a vampire, as they did not bleed.

    Do not speak to me in those tones! Perhaps I will add volchonok teeth to my lizard’s.

    A large number of Wolfram’s...

  • Omenseer: He does, yes.

    Last night we got to and through Christmas Morning, So next set of journals will cover the end of this segment of the story, last pre-Christmas show, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Morning. Gifts are opened, Insincere Marguerite drags most of the Motley out caroling, There is a second talk between Stasia and Elena, loves are kindled, and former enemies sit in the audience and chat.

    We will be starting up again with Walpurgis Night, The PCs getting the Dream House as their own, and two weddings a bit over a month away. Gawain and Ace will be out of...

  • It’s Winter Solstice, and the Winter Court takes control of the city. And that means a party. And our Dream House friends will be part of it.

    Session LXXXVI

    Lorelei’s Diary

    Christmas Day is just around the corner, and the excitement is almost palpable in the air… particularly whenever Marguerite is present, but I think we all feel it to some degree. I think I’m just about done putting the finishing touches on my presents for everyone. It’s difficult to work on them without any of my friends or lovers finding out what I’m up to, but I’ve been able...
