Untold Secrets in the Emerald City

Chronicles of Darkness on Discord

Chronicles of Darkness


About the adventure

Every city has their secrets, cryptids, and urban legends. The Man with a Hook Hand, Cropsy, the Mothman, and who could forget the sewer gators. Seattle is no different, but they have the luxury of the cryptids being outside the city limits. After all Bigfoot could never exist in the city, but the city still holds onto secrets and forgotten places. The Troll of Fremont Park may be publicly known for the true Seattlite, but still some do not know it exists and even fewer know that it is actually alive. Ogopogo is Washington's Loch Ness Monster, but again few have heard of it, and some have seen it just to be told they saw nothing. What happens when you see too many secrets? Are you able to ignore them or do you need to find them all and solve the mystery. This game is going to be one of two ongoing biweekly game. This game is going to be devoted to the various mysteries and oddities in the city of Seattle. There will be things working in the background that will connect each mystery to the next and the greater mystery for those that enjoy Chronicles of Darkness. The players may choose to participate during the off week through downtime actions. The Great Fire Spirit will be an ever present aspect of the game, but is not the only one there will still be ongoing plots and mysteries as there are in any city that is a part of the Chronicles of Darkness.

Additional Details

How to prepare

A player will need a mic, at least, webcam is not required, but encouraged, and a discord account. 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.

What I provide

I will bring the rule book, pre-generated characters to choose from, and years of experience and knowledge of running this game line.

Gameplay details

The game will be focused on what the characters are doing and how they are handling and dealing with the odd events going on with the city. If characters focus on their own personal problems then the game will start to shift towards those more personalized plots. Character choices will always impact the story even if it is not immediately recognized. All plot will be living and breathing plot whether for good or ill. Lines: Sexual Assault Bigotry (Cannot be done in game) Racism (Cannot be done in game) Extreme & Graphic Descriptions of Torture Veils Sexual Content (Fade to Black) Bigotry (May have elements in their backstories, with approval) Racism (May have elements in their backstories with approval) Child Abuse (May have elements in their backstories with approval) Content Warning: I have highlighted the major warnings as I see them from running this game line regularly. However, other tags may come into play and will be discussed before these elements are brought in.

How will character creation work

Characters will be created at session zero along with me and the rest of the group to try and connect the characters and to help start integrating them with the story that is being told. If you are joining after the first session I will schedule a time to meet with you for a session zero and hopefully with the other players to help bring you in easier.
