    About the adventure

    Welcome to the the beating heart of Europe. Seat of the European Union and one of the two world headquarters of the UN. Politicians and power brokers of all ranks and nations make their way here. And yet for all its glamour and reputation for being a shining beacon of freedom and unity in its essence lies a twisted, horrific world. Vampires stalk the streets and prey upon the masses of hopeful refugees running from war zones as something terrible has stirred in the Middle East and it demands bloodshed. Paranoid elders walk the halls of power and broker alliances and boons that would decide the faith of many nations. The omnipresent and seemingly all knowing mages known as the technocratic union have started pursuing their crusade against the supernatural world with fanatic zeal as they strive to purge the capitol of one of their main directorates - the New world order from reality defiants be they vampire, werewolf or something else entirely. Even the dead cannot find peace as hordes of mad wraiths march out of the gaping maw at the core of the underworld - oblivion. Worse yet many of the dead succumb to madness as the ancient gods on whose corpses the underworld was build - the neverborn stir in their uneasy sleep and their insane dreams infest the minds of all that have a connection to the underworld. It is in this world your characters find themselves. Expect not a heroic tale of beating the odds and saving the day. This is not that kind of story. Rather, survive. Survive and live to fight another night.

    How to prepare

    Since we will mostly be doing this over discord I would ask you to have a working microphone and discord installed. Please also register in roll 20 if you have not yet. I prefer to see my players, but if you are feeling shy a camera is in no way mandatory. For dice we will be using roll 20 and the character sheets I will have beforehand.

    What I provide

    I can provide all necessary source material books.

    Gameplay details

    Before we get started with our story I like to hold individual talks with each of the players to get to know them, what they want to play and work together with them to create a character that best fits their desires. I only require that you come to me with an idea for a character and a general background on them as a individual. Leave worrying about the most optimal way to build your character to me. I can advise on what skills to take, what powers they should have in accordance with your plans. Please note that character creation and this individual interview process is included in the fee for our first session. You will not pay unless you play. I also like to discuss any possible triggers for traumatic past events my players can have so to avoid including them in my story. In session 0 I like to set up boundaries such as player character interactions - for example whether we will allow PVP and to what degree, anything involving seduction between player characters (It does not matter if your character has mind bending powers and is very charismatic, you cannot seduce / make another player character do something they do not wish to do), seduction and sexual interaction with NPCs (this is a roleplaying web site, not an ERP website, for this I usually propose a tasteful fade to black). During our sessions I do like using the X, N, O cards either in general or private chat. I like receiving feedback from my players, but post session debriefings seem too formal and demanding from my players to me. As my schedule is quite flexible and I can always find time for my players I prefer to receive feedback at their own convenience and I am always available for a chat.

    How will character creation work

    Character creation will be done on an individual basis via a 1 on 1 meetings with each player to discuss their character in depth. Their story, motivation, important persons in their lives and abilities. Twenty two years of character creation has developed in me an encyclopedic knowledge of traits and powers, so not to worry I can advise you on the best way to build the character you want. Of course if you already have a character, please bring them forth. I like to begin my sessions at 0 experience, but there will be plenty of room to grow and plenty experience to be had.
