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.

What else should you know

If you are interested in playing please send me a message on here, an email, tyalpa@gmail.com, with the subject of the game, or connect with me on discord, Seavale TAP#0695.

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 is magic being so unruly, 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.
