  • It looks like recruitment has been slower this time around than a few years ago, so I'm not really expecting many more people to hop on here to pitch a character concept. All of you have offered interesting ideas and seem excited and open about how to fit those characters into the current setting, so unless we suddenly have a bunch of more applicants come out of the woodwork, it looks like we have our party starting to form:

    1. Kvitebjørn Kong Valemon - Lynx, Thyrsus animist/college student
    2. Second Chances - TBD, Moros or Thyrsus
    3. DrSteve - Morganna, Mastigos soccer...

  • I love this so much! I think this is an awesome character concept and will really help to bolster the group.

    I don't have many questions, and I imagine that you'll answer most of them as you further flesh out the character more.

    I'll look through old print sources to see if I can find an Obrimos Guardian Legacy with Matter ruling. If you have a particular desire for a Legacy that we can't find in other print sources, we can always create one together, and just say there are only a handful of members in the local Consilium....

  • Also trying to tag Second Chances - any idea of at least which Path you might want to play? Assuming you're still interested in the game and able to play?

  • Hey, if you would rather play an Acanthus, please don’t feel obligated to pitch a Moros character concept. I would rather not have more than 2 of the same Path but if the Acanthus character you pitched is who you are more interested in playing, then work on fleshing out that background more.

    Both characters seems really cool and could find ways to fit in with the CofD Chicago setting.

  • Not pretentious, but I am very interested to learn more about Rene’s history before her Awakening. Your character concept emphasizes how she will view Supernal truths and the Fallen World now that she has Awakened, but who was she before? What was her relationship with her brother before their respective changes, and how is it now?

    Remember that the characters will all be newly awakened, essentially within the past few weeks. So I really want to see characters with really well defined backstories. Bonus points to relationships with characters I can use as NPCs to easily bring in...

  • Neat ideas as a start. Do you see this character as having a professional background in law enforcement before becoming a PI? Or is that a new role or idea since she Awakened? As you work on fleshing out the background more, please also think of ways her interests and background might tie in with the Chronicle-specific setting details in the introductory OOC and IC threads.

    Is Sylia the sympathetic name or did you mean Sylvia?

    You are welcome to keep her as Acanthus, but I’m curious, what are your thoughts about Moros? Definitely would lend itself well to detective...

  • Second Chances DArchon5 squidheadjax - Just a reminder in case it was lost in the past few pages, but when you have time, please use the following format to pitch your character concept.

    Concept: Summarize your character concept in one phrase or short sentence.
    Sympathetic Name:
    Shadow Name:
    Path:
    Order:
    Legacy:
    (If you have one in mind)
    Virtue:
    Vice:

    Background: Please provide a brief narrative summary of the character concept, taking into consideration how your background may fit into the greater Mysteries described in the introductory...

  • I would say sure, pitch the character concept in a way that sounds the most fun for you. If you want the sibling NPC to be more influential or available to help you out, make sure that you take an appropriate number of dots in a relevant merit, such as Allies, Retainer, and/or True Friend.

    I will say that I know very little about Changeling so I’ll need to read up on it more if you end up joining us. But I’m all for crossovers when implemented thoughtfully and tastefully.

  • Hi, thanks for expressing interest! Due to my own personal life and work obligations, the reality is that we probably aren’t going to be moving at any breakneck speed. I would like people to be able to post on average ~2-3 times per week, or at least weekly during times when you’re really busy. If you think that is unrealistic with your schedule, let me know....

  • All I need from you right now is to update your character sheet so it matches the changes you were thinking of making. If you want to change your background at all as well, consider what changes you want to make and enter those as well. If you can’t make those yet until our other members have entered drafts of their sheets, that’s ok too....

  • Awesome, glad to hear you are interested! No rush, like I said in the recruiting post, if there is more interest than openings, I’ll be selecting players who have the most interesting ideas and seem like the best fit for the group. Let me know if you have any questions....

  • DrSteve - Just wanted to say that you’re officially in, in case that wasn’t clear. Looking forward to playing with you!

    I have also posted a recruitment post on the RPG.net forums. It seems like they are way more active. Hoping that draws some more interest.

    If I am somehow able to access RPG.net from work, I might suggest that we migrate there to play the game. I’ll let you know if I suggest that.

  • I love these additions to the background. Thanks for taking the time to flesh this out. I think they offer a deeper, richer perspective on Hannah/Morganna's personality and history.

    As far as the local setting goes, Sleepers would not know anything about the supernatural components of the Highstorm, but in my Awakened Chicago, Sleepers are aware of the very unusual weather patterns and have basically just grown accustomed to "freak weather" events. Most of them probably just take it in stride or even take pride in their ability to live in a city with such weird phenomenon....

  • DrSteve - Interesting character concept, thanks for expressing interest in the game!

    I have a few questions looking at the overall character sheet and the background.

    (1) What is Hannah's new relationship with her ex-husband and children now that she has Awakened? Do they still live in the Chicago metro area? Your aspirations suggest that she still sees her children, but I wasn't sure from your background what her new relationships might be with her former family. I also wonder if there is anything else that ties Hannah to Chicago specifically; did she move here after...

  • Recruiting for "soft reboot" of my Mage: the Awakening 2E PBP game

    I previously ran a Mage: the Awakening 2E play-by-post game here on the Onyx Path forums, with the chronicle named "The Supernal Suburbia". It ran successfully for almost 2 years, but became inactive due to personal issues and work obligations on my part that prevented me from actively dedicating enough time to keep the game moving.

    I am now attempting to restart the chronicle, and because almost all of the original players are either MIA or have bowed out, I am going to use the same setting and most of the same NPCs but we are doing a "soft reboot" of the chronicle....

  • For you two who are already committed to the "soft reboot" we are planning, here are some additional details regarding character concepts and creation.

    We will continue to use the existing OOC and IC threads for the game. It's easier than starting from scratch in a new thread, I think.

    Follow normal character creation rules, with the following exceptions: Begin with Gnosis 2 instead of Gnosis 1. However, you cannot spend extra merits to begin with Gnosis 3. This essentially gives you 5 extra merit dots (if I recall correctly), but you can start with a little...

  • That’s a neat idea. Probably lends itself to Obsessions about interacting with a variety of ephemeral entities, which makes it easier for me to introduce some for plot hooks.

    I think what we can do is have the story pick up around the time as this one went on hiatus, maybe just after the Consilium meeting. The NPCs I have introduced will still be in the game, but depending on the new PC cabal composition, the Shields of Dawn may or may not be the de facto mentors for your characters.

    I’m giving the rest of the original players until Monday to join and then I’ll...

  • Ok! I can totally work with that. I really have enjoyed this setting and I've put a lot of thought into creating the NPCs and some of the Mysteries involved.

    It makes a lot of sense that over the past few years you would've thought about Lynx and reflected on whether or not he matches the type of character you would enjoy playing, or the concept you've created for him. My own interest in which Path/Order I would like to play if I was ever a Mage player has changed, so I can imagine that your own vision of Lynx could change as well.

    A few questions:
    - Do you still...
