    Additional Details

    How to prepare

    Players will need access to roll20, steady internet, and a working microphone. No need for anything professional, inbuilt is fine. Video is encouraged but not required.

    What I provide

    I'll bring the discord server, the roll20 page, the pdfs, and the recaps between each session.

    Gameplay details

    On top of all the usual below, this is going to be a particularly goofy game. v5 has a lot of rules that lend themselves to the gritty tone its written for really well, but that's not the story we're here to tell. This will be be absurd and over the top, and painfully self-aware. When the rules are necessary we'll use them, but expect a lot of "rule of cool". If you're a 110 year old vampire and the TV show that was your touchstone gets taken off the air, well, no one told you about that before the embrace. Before we begin, we'll do a group lines/inventory and toss any ideas out for potential threads for characters. Before the first session I'm available to help out with character questions, or clarifications on themes and safety tools. This'll be on discord where we'll have a space for us to share thoughts throughout the process. When we meet for the session of play, I'll go into more detail about the safety tools, and do a little intro for everyones character before we set the group on their opening purpose. After that and future sessions, we'll create a space for Stars/Wishes and time to discuss bleed that may have occured. Before the next session I will post a recap and refresh everyone at the start to each session.

    How will character creation work

    I'll share the helpful documents and provide the roll20 where we'll keep the actual sheets. I'm always excited to help with character creation, broad themes, crunchy mechanics, potential homebrew; and everything in-between. On our server, we'll share ideas together and create our coterie. If after the 1st or 2nd session your character isn't feeling the way you thought they would, or your realize there is something else you'd rather explore, then you are welcome to tweak your character. If you want to address the changes, big or small, in fiction you always can or we can just ret-con.
