About the adventure

With recent events in the city mages have had to seek sanctuary in Horizon the realm where magic is the norm and science is the paradoxical. However, this was not by a simple backlash the forces of Entropy and Dynamism nearly destroyed Seattle and those that were able to bring Stasis back have become unstable with the new norm. Is this normal or an oddity that needs to be explained? Is the Cabal doomed to only travel through the realms never to return back to Seattle or is this small reprieve just that? What of Seattle when they return will the Technocrats push the advantage or are the Traditions able to turn the tables and make Seattle a Mage sanctuary? Help tell the tale of Seattle. You are a mage, you can bend the world around you at will, but bend it to much and the universe takes its toll from you. This game is designed to probe what it means to struggle with near unlimited power and keeping it under control. Will you rely on abstinence and use your power sparingly, or overindulgence and freedom to get what you want consequences be damned?

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 on going conflict with the Technocracy. There will also be plotlines that do not directly relate to the ongoing conflict, but more of what is happening in the city. If characters focus on the political machinations and the war then it will become more present depending on the events from the other game. There will be a tug and pull from this games opposing game, with that there will be some events that will have both groups of players interacting with one another in real time. 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.
