About the adventure

It was a normal night nothing out of the ordinary for you. Just the cold ocean air creeping along your skin, you remember feeling as though you were being watched the whole time, but could never piece together where the voyeur was. You tried to shake the tail, but again nothing came of it just the feeling of being watched hanging over you throughout the night. When you went to bed down for the morning all you can remember was a face cut and lacerated with weeping wounds standing over you. You have woken up in a room that is pitch black and feel the need to eat something, the others around you seem familiar, but you do not fully recognize them. There is light creeping in through a closed door. As you get out you realize you are in some sort of labyrinth how do you get out, how do you handle the things locked in with you.

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

I will state it here that I am using V20 for lore as well as some aspects from the book, but the mechanics will be using BNS LARP rules, because I find it easier to run the game as well as bring people in. If you do not have the book the link at the bottom of the paragraph should be able to help you. 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 Sabbat. 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. https://vamp.bynightstudios.com 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.

How will character creation work

I will have some pre-generated characters available for players to pick from if they would like. However, players are more then welcome to create their own characters and I will be scanning over them to make sure that they are not too far out there. Again I am using the BNS rules and using the link provided can help you create a character. https://vamp.bynightstudios.com
