    About the adventure

    Seattle is a lush, evergreen city lying between Puget Sound and Lake Washington with abundant parklands, and surrounded by towering mountains and forests. Widely known for its overcast weather, when the sun does come out, the spectacular beauty of the waterways, forests and distant mountains combine to make Seattle one of the most stunning cities in the US. Despite this lovely city and its progression it have become a ground for monsters who are willing to take advantage of those that are oblivious to the underbelly of the city. You have been dreaming about a monster chasing you, hunting you, trying to consume you. When out late at night you see these monsters in glimpses of others, but it wasn't until you confronted the monster in your dream that you realized you were the monster. You are a monster, you need to feed on fear, but that means humans are food. This game is designed to probe what it means to struggle with being a monster, you are what humans fear even though you look human it is only a skin for this realm. Will you be a monster that feeds at every moment you get or will you feed when only it is necessary? See if you can teach and survive in Seattle

    Additional Details

    How to prepare

    A player will need a mic at least, webcam is not required, discord downloaded, their own dice if they wish or to use my dice roller on discord. A player does not have to have a thorough understanding of the rules, but needs to have a bit of imagination and willing to learn the rules as we play. A player does need to have a character sheet for themselves, but doesn't need to resubmit one when leveling up.

    What I provide

    I will bring the rule book, a discord to interact in, and a plot to hunt down.

    Gameplay details

    Chronicles of Darkness 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 why has the apex gone quiet, with the added complications of the character's personal touches and motivations. 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

    The system does not have a level system in the normal sense, but characters will be considered beginners. If players wish to pre-make characters it would be appreciated, but needs to be confirmed by me. There will be pre-generated characters available, but I will assist in character creation if desired and there is time before the game.

    Players can expect

    • Combat/Tactics: Medium
    • Roleplay: High
    • Puzzles: Low
    • Experience Level: None
