Chronicles of Darkness in Seattle
Chronicles of Darkness, Vampire: The Requiem 2nd Edition on Discord
About the adventure
Chik-chik-cha-chik-chik-chika-chik-cha-chik-Ding Everything happens for a reason is what you were told when growing up, but you didn't realize that this was true. You wander through the streets of Seattle seeing that everything and everyone seems to be playing a part in a play, but they do not realize their thoughts were already scripted out for them, even when they rebel against the thoughts they are still tied to their role in this play. Chik-chik-cha-chik-chik-chika-chik-cha-chik-Ding You only realized the events after you experienced the Change, the city became more flat and muted, as if props on a stage. Your favorite server's smile no longer genuine now just a forced smile. You see this, but you do not see or know who the director of this melancholic play. Those like you have said to stay away from some areas of the city, because they are backstage. Chik-chik-cha-chik-chik-chika-chik-cha-chik-Ding They say that the director is something beyond understanding. They say that those who go against the Mandate see beings that warp the mind, even worse than those seen in the Underworld or Arcadia. They say it is angels performing their duty, not the Seraphs or Cherubs that the Church preaches. No these are machines and beings that no one wishes to see in a dark alley. Chik-chik-cha-chik-chik-chika-chik-cha-chik-Ding Who ever the director is, seems to have less control of those who experienced the Change. Through their will and cooperation they have been able to stake out sanctuaries for their kind. However, the laws apply outside of these areas. "Death Begets Death. Choruses Beget Cacophony. Exit the Stage and Forget. My Place is to be Hidden. Impersonation Begets Death." Those who have been tempted or foolish enough to disobey these laws have met the punishment in their own time. Chik-chik-cha-chik-chik-chika-chik-cha-chik-Ding Would you like to join an ongoing game that is always active and the game world is always changing and moving? Well then come join Chronicles of Darkness in Seattle. It is a constant game of Chronicles of Darkness, that allows for players to make different groups and explore different on going mysteries, whether through voice chat or text.
How to prepare
The only preparation a player will need to do is have discord installed, be ready to play, and have a basic character idea. The character does not have to be created or fully developed it can be something as simple as a skeptic or teacher to a detective that is done with all of the bureaucracy or an occultist that has been talking to the other side as far as they can remember. All players should also have a discord account.
What I provide
I will bring the rulebook and have a story prepared for them, along with a discord server that is considered in game and for play at anytime.
This game is a play by post game and considered to be active "24/7." Players can interact with one another at anytime on the server provided. Chronicles of Darkness, and its other game lines, use the storyteller system which requires the players to roll 10- sided equal to an attribute and skill to succeed at tests. Any dice over 8 is considered a success, but if the roll comes up with no successes then the roll is a failure, but if you only roll one die and it is a 1 then it is a dramatic failure. Though there are conditions that could influence rolls as well as how characters react to certain events or beings. A usual session will be centered around a current mystery, whether that is a simple murder case or a cosmic being trying to control the city, with the added complications of the character's personal touches and motivations. However, this game is going to be active "24/7." Players can interact with one another at anytime on the server provided, and admins will be available to run plot for players that are looking to run one of the active missions, which should last for an hour to four. Safety Tools: I use two major safety tools, X card and lines and veils, with weekly check ins. The X card can be used at any point if a participant is uncomfortable with the content happening in-game. When the X card is used by tapping the card or typing an “X” in the chat, the group can change, rewind, or skip the content. Lines: are subjects that are never brought up or into the game, any player may add to the list. The current lines are: Sexual Assault of any kind. Veils: are subjects that are alluded to but never directly brought up or into the game, any player may add to this list as well. The current veils are: domestic abuse. Weekly Check Ins: is where I ask the group before each game if there is any Lines or Veils that the players would like to add to the list whether on a permanent basis or temporarily considering life happens and we are not fully active in each other's life.

How will character creation work
There is no levels with the character's but characters will be new to the darker side of the world. I will go over character creation with the players to make sure that they have a character that they enjoy and works well with others. However, if a player wishes to create a character on their own and being checked by me they are more than welcome to.
