I made it before a year

Posted in Other Stuff on December 3rd, 2016 by enwewn

I have not been able to game at all this year as working on and around the house have taken most of my time. I have been following Critical Role and enjoying them play. It some what of a fix for the itch. I hope to finish the recording of the Rochester game, I think I have a few more nights. The night I am on currently the recording sucks so it takes a long time to get though as I have to stop often. After I am done with what we played I am thinking of continuing the story as a fiction project. Not sure on that as my overall writing skills are not that great. Well really they are crap, but I would like to think I can do something with the story as it is. I am also encouraged by have just recently gotten back in touch with my editor friend and maybe I can get a few of the nights that I have written checked out and put up.

Well enough of this back to work I guess.

A long time again

Posted in Other Stuff on December 19th, 2015 by enwewn

Well its been too long since I posted here as life had gotten in the way. I have been keeping up with Critical Role over on Geek and Sundry for my gaming fix. But soon with a little more work I might just be able to start having a game night once in a while at my place. Still too soon to know, but maybe soon.

Way too long

Posted in Other Stuff on May 20th, 2014 by enwewn

So I really have not had any time to do gaming this year. Life is just getting in the way. Looked into the new onyx path stuff and it looks cool. We will see what life leads to the rest of the year.

Just a quick update

Posted in Other Stuff on August 29th, 2013 by enwewn

I am just writing to say that there is no current activity of games, but it is never over.

We still are not playing

Posted in Other Stuff on April 7th, 2011 by enwewn

Work schedules, school schedules, and life just keep getting in the way. We did have another Watts night and it was fun to catch up like that even if I was half asleep after a long day. I stall am hoping to get something going, but its going to have to wait until everyones life settles out again.

Its been too long again

Posted in Other Stuff on January 27th, 2011 by enwewn

Yet another long time frame that I have not been able to get peoples together to play games. I don’t know when work schedules are going to start lining up agian, but I always hope it will happen soon.

New online game

Posted in Other Stuff on May 20th, 2010 by enwewn

Working on getting schedules together to do an on line vampire game. Those of you who know who you are, get me your schedules so I can get the dates worked out.

Update

Posted in Albert Lea Game, Gaming On-line, Other Stuff on March 24th, 2010 by enwewn

I got the blog updated to the newer version and fixed all that got broke in the process. We also have a plan to start doing on-line gaming again as the schedules are getting better for that. So maybe just maybe I will get some real gaming in this year.

This has not been a gaming year

Posted in Other Stuff on November 25th, 2009 by enwewn

So yeah, I have not had much in the way of gaming come to this site all year. There has been some small hope of getting a game going at some point here soonish, but I don’t know how that is going. So until then I just keep on doing everything else.

Vampire A. Lea Update……

Posted in Other Stuff on January 24th, 2009 by Mary

Yep I am working on making the update more coherent. So please bear with me I have not forgot about you…….

Albert Lea Update ……

Posted in Other Stuff on January 17th, 2009 by Mary

Our setting is Grand old New Orleans, as if you weren’t expecting that…..hahah!!!
Our game opens during Mardi Gras….go figure again I know this was obvious. We are Pre-Katrina, year is 1987.
We open with our friends in Louis Armstrong Park, just west of Corpus Christie Church.
Our wise young fools have this Hunger that really no words can vividly enough describe. However, the idea that even their mostly favorite food is not even slightly appetizing.
In trying to figure out where they are they realize that they are not as alone they believed a few seconds ago. They are leery of each other and don’t really interact. Beacause coming their way from the direction of the French Quarter. They are college age, two males and two females all four of them are so obviously drunk as to be literally falling over each other. They are loud and obnoxious and boisterous to the extreme. But curiously what draws our new creations’ attention is not their overt behavior it is what they mean to each of them…..They know almost instictively that they can fulfill the Hunger they feel. As the partiers get closer they seem drawn to the body heat, the sound of heartbeats. Watching the jugular pound with the blood pumping through.
The first of our characters to react is Neveah. With speed that I believe even surprised her, she furiously attacked the male nearest to her position, slashing and stabbing at her victim while all the while her canines lengthened and she sank her fangs into his neck and felt the sheer pleasure of the blood trickling down her throat; all the while she is stabbing and slicing at her victim’s torso.“What a waste of perfectly good vitae!” Never mind I’m getting ahead of myself.

Our other unlikely hero, Noland went after the only male of partyers left. This was with such nonchalance that it was comical when compared to the other response. Noland was inspired by the emotional baggage he’s dragging around of his experiences with drunken people. Therefore, male victim number two really never did stand a chance. The male’s fate was sealed the moment he took his first drink of the evening. “If you believe in FATE that is!” In a flash Noland engaged his prey rather quickly and efficently draining the life right out of the male without spilling a drop of the precious vital fluid. At this point Noland a satiated his thrist and the Hunger receeds to the background of his mind. “Hehe, for now anyways!”

Tired will add more in the very near future……………

Update Done

I just finished the update to the new version I also got the old theme back so enjoy.

Albert Lea Game

Posted in Other Stuff on July 26th, 2008 by Mary

A game in Albert Lea would be awesome. A game in Richfield would be awesome too. The main basic issue with either of these is players……some would be nice. This is the roomless window story teller…..So many stories set up but no one to play them…..story of our lives especially lately!!!!

The gaming room almost there……yeah now we need players!!!!

Always the problem. At any rate just thought I should post better get some sleep as it is now 0545.

Updated version

Posted in Other Stuff on July 15th, 2008 by enwewn

Ok so I updated the version of wordpress that I was using, again. The problem is I screwed up and deleted the template files for the site. That ok, as I have needed to go though them and update them for a long time, so over the next few days, weeks, months, years, you get the idea. I will be doing something different with the site. It works right now and that was the biggest worry for me. I am also working ever so slowly at getting the rest of the rochester game typed up and at lest on the blog. I will then kick the editor in the ass and get him to review night 20 and up so I can have a finished story.

Thanks for stopping by.

Joe

update

Posted in Other Stuff on June 23rd, 2008 by enwewn

again, I am going to get some more here i swear…

WordPress Updated

Posted in Other Stuff on January 12th, 2008 by enwewn

So I couldn’t sleep. So now WordPress is up to date.

Ok so it has been a year…

Posted in Other Stuff on December 29th, 2007 by enwewn

And in this year life has gotten in the way a lot. We have been playing DnD online in openRPG still most weeks, and I have failed to get any of that up. So here we go. We added a few people, one player changed character, and we lost a few. Current playing line up is Tordain, Horis, Milltonbarry, Lilith, and Khalan with Dori sometimes. We crawled though some caves, got a bump forward and crawled though a dungeon fought a few tentacles, then a hoard of zombies and a necromancer. Now working our way back out we have ran into a wizard. Yeah that’s a years worth of play… Details would make it longer, but I don’t want to. We never got back together for a vampire game and I stopped working on the nights due to the editor not getting any editing done, but I still have the notes, so I will try and finish them out, I think it is only two or three more nights. The Albert Lea game died slowly mostly do to not getting more people, I suck with only two player, just not enough to feed off of. I bought a house a few month ago. I am working on finish the attic to give me space to game in, so once that is done I hope to make time and get peoples together to play. At the rate it is going that should be before 2009, but maybe not much. Really I hope for February of 2008, but I know how some things work out. Duluth games are all dead to my knowledge, so I will look those over. I am going to do some web page work and update a few things including Word Press. Well that is enough for now. I will type here in the not to distant future.

New Game Starting in Albert Lea

Posted in Other Stuff on July 9th, 2006 by enwewn

We Will be starting a new game in Albert Lea MN. This game is going to be a tengent off the Rochester MN game that is up on the site. In doing this I will be putting up the last few nights of the that game soon. We will be have atlest one return player from the Rochester game and three new players. These three are new to White Wolf gaming so it should be fun. I would like to include any of the other the Rochester players that I can, but do to scheduling I don’t know if that will be posable. I am looking at start this game some time around the first week in Aug. with at lest one pregame sesion to get the new players their characters and familerise them with the rules. The game itself should be picking up about six month after the last game night from the Rochester game. I look forward to getting a game going agian.

Updates

Posted in Other Stuff on October 9th, 2005 by enwewn

For those of you who want it, here is a post of the edits that Ken has just made. If you check on the web site, for the next few days at least, you will be able to find the changes. Enjoy.

Night Two

Ok, time for night two of this little ordeal of ours. Some events might have changed places, as I could not find the order of them happening on the recordings and I am trying to go by the in-game nights, not the play nights.

We arrive at the gaming location and do the weekly life update. Although this night was a little different, as one in the group had his birthday the day before. There was a nice meat and cheese tray on the table, as well as a tin of mixed nuts. Last time we had played, I was totally unprepared for the game. This time, I had a start on some ideas that could be interesting during the game. The characters all gather at Paul’s sire’s home, via the limousine. (I am starting to not like that choice. Later, it starts to show how bad of a choice it was.) They talk about the fact that they have not seen their sires for a few nights (That’s my fault for not having them ready). Then, the choice is made to go back to the office building and investigate the explosion that chased them out of it, yesterday. They return to the building and find it intact. They all enter and start back to the office where they had the meeting. They take a quick look around and find little that seems out of place, in the office. Most of the group; Paul, Gracey, James, Hannah, and Victoria, head downstairs to see if they can find the source of the explosion. Christian starts to wander the halls on the upper floors to see if he can find anything. (He will not, because I have little idea what else would be there). After looking for a while, he heads back down to the limousine.

They find themselves in the basement were they can hear some work being done. They search it out and see a couple of welders repairing a steam line. They sneak by the welders, to look in the area for anything else out of place. They get to the end of the hall where there is another set of stairs leading up and out. (As marked by the EXIT sign.) James (The one person who has played some V:tM in the past.) tells everyone to be still and quiet. He then activates “heightened senses” and takes a look around. James notices that a door in the hall seams to be out of place. They all wander down to this door and Paul is the first to barge in. (Paul and James both do a Predator’s Taint check as they enter, and pass.) They enter and find a storage room with a staked vampire in it, along with some boxes. James starts to look around the room and finds some evidence of a fight. Paul calls out to Victoria and Gracey to come take a look at the room. While they make up their minds to come into the room, James has found a few boxes with addresses on them, taking note of one that is from a residential area in town, with a familiar name and a piece of cloth with M M written on it. Victoria enters the room. (She passed the roll.) Looking around, she does not see much, other than a beat-up, staked, vampire. Gracey attempts to enter the room and starts to run away, screaming (Rolled Failed), down the hall, drawing the attention of guards (Er, I mean – welders. I kept calling them guards during the game, when they were, in fact, the welders from earlier.). Well, James takes off after her, the other two try, but aren’t quick enough and get caught by the welders. Victoria glares at one of them and commands him to sleep (using dominate, of course). This guard (welder) goes into a dazed state. Paul jumps the other guard (welder) and proceeds to beat the piss out of him. Before he kills the poor guy, Victoria yells to him that they need to go. They meet up with Christian, James, and Gracey at the limousine and head on out. In the limousine, James tells them about the address and the cloth, so Paul has the driver go to that address.

At the apartment complex, James gets out and looks at the buzzer panel. He finds one with the name he thought he knew, M. Manson, and got buzzed in without a word. He goes to the apartment number and checks the door. It’s unlocked. He enters the apartment just in time to have some young lady start screaming at him. With a few quick words, he backs out the door and goes down to the limousine. They head back to their havens, via the limousine, and while doing this, they talk about what has happened to them, so far.

Ok, that’s one more night down; a few more to go. At this rate, I might get them done before we stop playing vampire. 🙂 . Still kind of wordy, though. I had hoped to compress more, but I still like including as much detail as I feel does justice to the game.

Night Four

So, here it is: Another wonderful gaming night! Well, Hugh didn’t make it this time – had something to do with being the “best man” at a wedding in Las Vegas. Anyway, we start them off at home, just waking up from their daily rest. A few more of them decide that it would be a good night to feed. Victoria, Paul, James, and Christian all feel it is time to go on the hunt. I give them their respective rolls and tell them what they get. So now, with that over, they all decide that going back to the office building would be a good thing to do. So there goes the limousine, out and about, to pick every one up and take them back to the office building. They all waltz right in and go up to the meeting room that this all started in. They all start to look around the office. (Wits + Larceny) This let them find the hidden filing cabinets and they gained what little information there was, off of the desk blotters. A quick Dexterity + Larceny check for one of them to pop open the file cabinets and Intelligence + Larceny or Intelligence + Investigation, which gives different information. The Larceny roll could produce other information sources. Those needed an extraordinary success that no one got. They discovered files on various people, including their sires, a few other key players, and some building blueprints with addresses. (See NPC page) This was good enough for most of them, but Paul decided that he needed to do one more thing . He enlists the help of Christian and heads for the basement, as the rest of them take files out to the limousine. Once down there, they grab the body that has held some fascination for him and drag it out a side door to the limousine. Into the trunk it goes, which makes the others in the limousine ask them what they think they’re doing. He placates them with something to the effect of “it’s my limousine. If you don’t like it, walk!” In the limousine, they talk a little about what they found in the office. (What little I could tell them as I did not have much of that information ready, yet. Does there seem to be a pattern forming?) They head for Paul’s place. When they get there, Paul find his sire, Dianna and asks if she knows who the body is. She informs him that it is Jeff Orbrock, the prince’s first childe. Then, she goes on to tell him that he needs to take care of that trash. Paul asks Christian to help him move the body into the garage to hide it. After that, they all go inside to talk some more about their findings at the office. James calls in a favor from one of his contacts (City Engineer), to see if he can discover who the owners of the blueprints are. This, of course, leads to leavening a message, due to the time of night. Gracey talks the rest of them into giving her the files, so the she can read them over. (I still don’t have a clue why this worked, but hey – I’m just a storyteller.)
We run out of useable time in the evening, so I “call it” with them all getting rides home from the damn limousine. A little chatter later and we head for home, ourselves.
’till next time.

Tonight is game night

Posted in Other Stuff on May 31st, 2005 by enwewn

Well, tonight we get together to play, again. I hope to give out what experience points are remaining so that everyone is on the some page, as far as that goes. I also, will have Wednesday off to work on typing up what we get done tonight, so hopefully , the update won’t take till the last minute, this time.

Denizens

Posted in NPC Stuff, Other Stuff, Story Stuff on April 20th, 2005 by enwewn

In the larger cities of the world, there are many denizens of the night, crowding the streets. What few are listed here are but simple examples…

We with in the Darkness Unvailed playgroup have started to play the new Vampire: the Requiem from White Wolf. With this new game, there came a need for a new setting and new NPCs… I, as the storyteller for the game, have made an effort to get a short write-up on all of the NPCs up for my players and others to reference on-line; to better get the feel of what I have going on, in my head. It also reminds me of what train of thought I was on when I thought of them in the first place. As we continue to play, I will add to the list and work on fleshing out the ones that are already there. As I am not the most prolific writer or idea maker, it will take some time. If you see an NPC that you would like to know more about, drop a note here. Also, if you see one that is on the working list, but not up, give it your try to make their background.

Web site

Posted in Other Stuff on April 19th, 2005 by enwewn

Changed some of the stuff on the site it self agian… Still working with design ideas though… All the changed NPC backgrounds are now over there also…

Letter from the “editor”

Posted in Down Time Info, Other Stuff on April 19th, 2005 by Hugh

I’m doing my best to make the blog more fluent for those who can’t read Lennian [those who can, know what that is]. However, I will only be editing the Storyteller’s entries, unless otherwise requested. I will be concentrating my efforts on new entries, while slowly making my way to the beginning of the blog. This may take a while, as my time for doing so is limited. If you happen to spot mistakes, please don’t hesitate to point them out. Comments are encouraged!
Thank you for your support!

Word Press Update
