  1. Sorry for not being online in forever... Just life hit me and I didn't have the energy to try build a player base.... If anyone is interested I've been having some ideas for games that could be done via roll 20?
  2. Where to now? I would like to help form up the party at this point. But you have at least one lead which you can choose to follow it... Or make your own lead. So where to? You have the wheel.
  3. The fat old man takes a moment to process the information. He has an expression that is reminiscent of an old, under-clocked, cpu trying to be as impressive as when it was first bought. He gives a nod. Not a nod of acknowledgement, nor one of disinterest. No, this was merely a nod of 'fair enough, get on with it then.' The grumpy pig, of a man, closes his eyes and waits for movement. Only to then suddenly roll open his eye, like a Venetian blind, and coughs, "oh, and take Carmen and Garratt with you, if you can. My only good eye", the man points at the abyss that once held an eyeball, "foresees that they will be useful in your endeavors."
  4. Leonards returns to you momentarily and, pleased with himself, replies "The office says that there is a meeting already scheduled in town. Head into the city and find the Cafe Beauregard. Mmr Webb has reserved a room to discuss many important tings."
  5. Oyadina waits a few moments to see if Webb would respond himself and then speaks up, "We're here to discuss the precognitions some of us have had this last evening... Perhaps you have some light to share on the situation Master Silhouette?" Silhouette, one of the generic tuxedo wearing teens then responds "well actually I've heard of these stigmatics down at the church on Ottery Road. Maybe they are collaborating with enemy intelligence to give us the vision?" The middle-aged man snorts and exclaims, "if that were the case why would they show us the image of a storm?" After, precisely, 4 seconds the, now, drunkard man opens his question to the floor "well?"
  6. Over the next few hours the old Nordic man makes a trip out to 'obtain alcohol.' At exactly 3.21pm the man returns with two old bottles mead still with the security tabs attached. The man exclaims, playful and loudly, that you should hold bottles out at arm's length for him. He then, methodically, reverts his left arm into the blade it always was and cuts the top off the bottles with one swipe. After taking a large gulp, perhaps even a pint, of the liquid. He grins, showing the rusted and worn molars that the man wears with pride and announces "I give you Aunty Nancy!" A frail woman, in her early 80s, walks through the door and gasps... However, that gasp is quickly replaced with a snarky comment "How, the fuck, do you know these tings Oya?" The wrinkly lady, with faded coloured skin, stumbles over to the old biker man, with the tennis balls attached to her walker dragging across the wooden floor, and gives him a hug of compassion - If lacking any real warmth or strength due to her age. Moments later Mrs. East, which currently appeared to be an English woman in her early 20s. Her skin smooth and had a tint of fire, inherent of her Arabic heritage. Her eyes appear shifty, but kind, and her blood red lips gives you a small grin, not one that could be replicated by a Cheshire cat; but kind nonetheless. Two minutes later, two slender young men in there teens walk through the door. They both appear pretty low-key and are pretty clearly wearing facades, perhaps even of the same person. The time is now 4pm but one of the lesser Agents speaks forward "So why did you call us here?" Mmr. Webb's keen eye notices Mrs. East go an odd tint of pale white and crimson red as the underling, clearly, spoke out of place. -------------------- OOC: Maybe we should run things in real time with time freezes around when a scene starts (like this)?
  7. I wouldn't mind playing in an OWOD mage game... I've never actually played owod mage and I don't have the PDF yet as I didn't have funds when the kickstarter was a thing.... But I do have a strong grounding in Awakening and I use a lot of flavour from owod in my Mage game... I also learned Awakening by the practices so I would just need to learn how Entropy is flavoured in comparison to Fate and Death... Or I could just avoid that Sphere for simplicity? (I for one am a big fan of the Technocrats after they got their own book.... It made them so much more interesting)
  8. "You have wisdom beyond your years in this realm Webb. To think my husband, Xango, had his doubts about you to begin with." The old stout man chuckles and continues "You have a solid plan and one that I believe that you should follow through with. We'll see if the others arrive with more information... And after that I hear Mrs. East has a job lined up that needs to be handled with discretion. Seeing as you had the initiative to call this gathering, if you want the job, it's yours." OOC: I will continue this on around 8:30am (GMT+10) and will be available until 12pm, and then from about 4pm my time... I will introduce more NPCs at that point and it will be ideal for players to jump in, even just for soft roleplay until they have character sheets sorted out.
  9. The old man makes a grunt that could easily be interpreted as a sigh. Not a sigh of dismay nor a suspire of relief... The noise was simply was, an entity in its own right, a warning and a statement of peculiar regularity. He takes the copper and leather eye patch off with gusto and the hole where, presumably, this covered and forgotten eye had once been, seemed whole. It looked like crystallized darkness, fog with every star in existence facing towards you. Oyadina smirked and calmly confirmed, "Indeed, I too have had similar precognitions. I see much potential in you, Webb, tell me, how would you deal with this situation?" ---------------- Sorry about not replying sooner on the first post because of the time zone gap... I will be available tomorrow to answer more quickly as I should be at a computer for most of the morning... But I should be able to stay on for another hour now.
  10. Mmr Webb receives no response (unless a PC wishes to do so). However, at precisely 1pm you hear the roar of classic World War II era Harley Davidson motorcycle. A large man with a white-grey beard, bronzed, green gold teeth and an eye patch that makes him look rather pretentious or a part of the cast for Pirates of the Caribbean arrives and walks into the cafe. He awaits for you to identify him Oyadina and then, rudely, stumbles into the room with two women that are clearly wearing lingerie under their sensible, if a bit romanticized, business wear. Their hair is dark. A pitch of black that flows in waves. But not waves in the conventional sense. No, these waves drip and drop and cover one another forming a smooth edge concealing the frequency of the tide. The ladies take a seat on the other side of the room and the middle aged man begins to mutter, "Mrs East and Aunty Nancy shouldn't be long. I heard that they have informed some of our other operatives as well. But before they arrive. Tell an old man..." He laughs at his own joke, "..why you have called this meeting?"
  11. Pitter patter, pitter patter. A voice whispers "There's a storm coming... Can you hear it?" It's comforting, like honey spread on butter and crusty, toasted, bread. The caramel voice fades into the waves, that is reality, and the rain continues. Pitter patter, pitter patter. You gasp for air, as light suddenly pierces your pupils. The shear intensity is blinding and burns like nothing you have experienced since the fall... Where are you now? --------------------------------- Game on! Everyone starts on full Aether, Health and WP. All replenish in real time... Except for Aether which you will need to collect using actions. You get 1 major action, per day, per Resolve. A Major Action is not just one test. But something that would require a scene or an extended effort to do. (Driving to work and making deal with a co-worker doesn't count as a Major Action - unless that deal effects the story -. But going to a night club that is believed to be a front for enemy intelligence is.... Also, you can tag onto other people's Major Actions for free. )
  12. Has anyone called dibs on a PC Sheriff? If not I've come up with a new PC idea last night that I really like: Mr Sandman - Lance/Mekhet
  13. Over the next few weeks, I will be written up 'Software Files' which contain Lore associated with parts of this History. I will be writing these in order of popular demand. So, if there is a part you would like to learn about. Then leave a comment and I'll prioritize. I have copied and pasted it from the VSS to here. Sam A Brief History For The Fallen I will expand upon these over the next few weeks with a dedicated history thread. As such, I will be writing out the expanded Lore in order of popular demand. Let me know what you would like to read about first! 1970s The year was 1971. The air was fresh, Jimmy Fouche was still president and the city was at peace. The God Machine designed, programmed, it this way and allocated a constellation of four very important angels to protect the software and they stood there diligently. You could see them from the top of buildings. They stood there as star above the sky pointing in the four directions of the compass surround the moon. Oyadina North, the leader and Sword of the God Machine. Lachina South 'Aunty Nancy' Nancy the Engineer. Helegba East the shield to protect the moon and Xango Westhor, the social specialist. It was a good system an effective system until May 21 - The First Night of Falling. 1980s Since that long and fearful night of '71 the four custodians of the land ran. They traveled around the world to try find inner peace. However, they were hunted by there previous master for years on end. It had been at least 16 years since any member of the star system spoke to one another. They had, individually, seen the world. For North to South, East to West. But, the only place that felt like home was Cape Town. The constellation regathered on that night of the 12th of August 1988. They came together with the realization that unless they worked together, none of them would be complete. None of them would be safe and they could never be free. Much like a compass they were all fashion from the same stone and, as such, were useless apart. That evening the Ring known as the Constellation was formed. 1990s The 90s were a difficult time for The Constellation. They faced adversity from many foes. - The God Machine had reestablished control of the city with their absence and Cape Town was its fortress. The Demons tried to establish a presence and little by little they succeeded causing several Angels designed to hunt down ring to fall and join the cause. It was the dark day of August the 5th, 1995, that the ring formally recognized that to expand, and to continue the fight against the God Machine, The Constellation had to become an agency. As such the, 10 demons smiled as they signed the paperwork to form the first temporal agency of Cape Town. - The Constellation was growing. 2000s As Y2K approached The Constellation had a plan that could put the God Machine back on the back foot for years to come. It was simple and, in fact, was inspired by human error. They snuck into compound X, a precious stronghold for the God Machine as well as a vital piece of infrastructure for the important data files associated with the city. The Agency worked together, editing the God Machines files so that rather than moving onto January the first the software would error and record it to be the 0th of January 1990. This was the Second Night of Falling as the God Machine's tools and infrastructure drastically malfunctioned due to this virus. The Third Night of Falling was the God Machine's own fault. On the 6th January the remaining Angels created a code that would realign the dates to the mortal world thus saving all future pieces assets. The sudden date and time change awesome caused some angels to fall. 2007 By year 2007, The Constellation temporal Agency declared Cape Town to be an Angel free city. - A sanctuary for Demon kind. 2009 The storm begins. Increased reports of missing persons and domestic violence. As well as a greater than average rain fall in the wet season. 2010 Reports of God Machine infrastructure being formed on the outskirts of the city. Particularly Rooi-Els, Betty's Bay and Pringle Bay. 2012 On the 21st of December the Demons of Cape Town were sombre. This day is now known as 'The Day the Angels Returned'. Helegba was kidnapped by the God Machine and taken back to enemy infrastructure at Kleinmond. Then, on Christmas Eve, the original Ring of Demons that formed The Constellation went to save East. They succeeded and Oyadina successfully Angel Jacks into an enemy cover 'Amelia Jones'. 2014 Oyadina uses a lot of her influence to manipulate the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design to name Cape Town the World Design Capital. In March the following train stations were closed for 3 weeks due to flooding: Van Der Stel, Simon's Town and Sunny Cove. 2015 Intel suggests that the God Machine is trying to reclaim Cape Town. - Increased sightings of enemy intelligence in the city.
  14. I'm happy for text write ups, but this is a good sheet for Demons: http://mrgone.rocksolidshells.com/pdf/DtD/DtD5-Page_Interactive.pdf And this one looks pretty good for Demon blooded: http://mrgone.rocksolidshells.com/pdf/DtD/NWoD_GodMachine_Fractal_Offspring_Latent_2-Page_Interactive.pdf
