    About the adventure

    Seattle a city divided by water, a city that pushes for equality and progressive measures hides a rather darker element. At night the city is still alive, people still live their lives. However, the roads and ferries or life blood of the city is choked up with black sludge. The people live their lives, but do not notice the disappearances or deaths that happen every night. It is easier to live in a world where nothing is wrong then to realize that you are not the top of the food chain, you are not safe, and instead being hunted and stalked by something that is so similar to you that you would mistake it for human, but instead it is your predator. However, this predator has decided to make you one of them and now you need to learn the new world and yourself. Players play as freshly turned vampires that are being released into the new world, will you choose to hold onto your former life as best you can or evolve into the role of predator with ease. Most in the society you have join are as fresh as you are and you need to find and make your place in this new world. This game is focused on players and their decisions. Everything in the world is able to be interacted with and more importantly effect the story whenever they are touched by the players. Even if a plotline is not being investigated or dealt with they will still be moving along in the background. If you are looking for a game where you set the pace of the adventure this is the game for you.

    How to prepare

    The only preparation a player will need to do is have discord installed, be ready to play, and have a basic character idea. The character does not have to be created or fully developed it can be something as simple as a skeptic or teacher to a detective that is done with all of the bureaucracy or an occultist that has been talking to the other side as far as they can remember.

    What I provide

    I will bring the rulebook and have a story prepared for them.

    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 what is the leader of the city hiding, 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

    There is no levels with the character's but characters will be new to the darker side of the world. I will go over character creation with the players to make sure that they have a character that they enjoy and works well with others. However, if a player wishes to create a character on their own and being checked by me they are more than welcome to.

    • Combat/Tactics: Low
    • Roleplay: High
