About the adventure

In The Ruined City, people are rebuilding from the ashes of a war that no one knows the cause of and escape is impossible as they are surrounded on all sides by belligerents who do not know the faces of their own countrymen. You are part of a group of hardscrabble survivors who are trying to make sense of the foggy political landscape that has seized your home and the monsters that are rumored to prey in the streets upon the helpless. The long night is coming. Protect what you can, improve what you must, and survive above all else.

Additional Details

How to prepare

Players will need a Mic and access to Discord and Roll20. It is preferable that players have access to the Mage: The Ascension 20th Anniversary Core Rulebook but not necessary. Players should have a rough estimate on the type of Player Character that they would like to play (Personality Wise). Pre-generated Characters are available.

What I provide

I will provide the scenario, host a dedicated Roll20 Virtual Tabletop for the player's group, a dedicated Discord server with current and previous players of my Virtual Tabletop games and provide time outside of active game time for character creation.

Gameplay details

This game will be dealing with the horrors of war and the vistas of human greed, malevolent thought, and in-human monstrosities. All sexual content takes place off-screen (scene fades to black) and never between unwilling participants (including NPCs). There will be a discussion with each player to determine their preferences for content to include content that they do not want to see in game. I have had good feedback from all of my players regarding personal and group limitations. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
