  1. Welcome back! I DM'ed you the RPG/WS invite in Discord.
  2. Life is just a series of things coming up, it seems. Still, I'm glad you're able to stay in your current place- it's much easier to find somewhere new to live when you have a home already.

  4. Now available in PDF and print-on-demand from DriveThruRPG: Trails of Ash and Bone for Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition! It’s a mistake to think of vampire as simple parasites that latch on to an unlucky victim and drain them until they drop. No, they’re not ticks. They’re spiders. Kindred lure victims into their webs and form a ring of protection and sustenance around themselves. And spiders, like vampires, are cunning. They ensnare the small and the weak, but some bind the strong and the mighty. Think of the spider when you consider the vampire’s herd, the vampire’s retainers, the vampire’s allies. They’re all theirs, caught in a web surrounding a predator. Some even fool themselves into thinking they want to be there. They think that proximity to the predator is a boon, or maybe, just maybe, the predator will see them as a creature with a use greater than sustenance. Do not fool for the lies of the vampire, recruit. Throughout their webs are trails of ash and bone, from all their friends, loved ones, companions, and cultists. The vampire cannot help but be the hungry spider. Trails of Ash and Bone includes: Four stories, each of a different theme, one set in the forests outside Copenhagen, another in decadent Atlantic City, one in arcane Florence, one the last in urban Birmingham.A set of fully playable ready-made characters, enabling a group of Vampire players to jump straight into one of these stories.New Loresheets and Oblivion Ceremonies, expanding the range presented in Cults of the Blood Gods. Also available: Cults of the Blood Gods Virtual Tabletop AssetsLet the Streets Run Red Virtual Tabletop AssetsCults of the Blood Gods desktop wallpaper Plus!

  5. Surviving is the most important part, definitely. And, yeah, fun can be a little harder to find, sometimes. I've been working on my last semester in college, and for fun I've mostly been hanging out online with some of the folks from the forums, here, since Matt has been kind enough to let us keep running the games we were playing. I've been really cautious about in-person socializing, because while our local vaccine rollout has gone surprisingly well, there are several people in my immediate family who are still high-risk and haven't been able to get vaccinated yet. I miss being able to see my friends. I miss hugs. But it'll be fine. What kinds of things are you doing to entertain yourself these days? Also, hi, Matt!
  6. Hi! I think things are going as well as can be expected, between course work and the pandemic. I hope you've been well!
  7. It's also perpetually in open beta.

  10. Hi! D20 Modern/Future has some useful resources, but, yeah. The attribute-based character classes and clunky progression didn't endear the game to me, although I really wanted to like it, and M&M made character creation a massive chore. Unfortunately, the only resource for Aberrant d20 I know of is the core rulebook- I never saw any errata published (even as third-party content), and a quick search through my favorite online RPG book hoard didn't turn anything up. That being said, there are people on the forums who have actually used the d20 versions of the game, so hopefully they'll have some advice regarding the nuts and bolts and applicability of the system!
  11. They beat Caestus Pax? Whew. That's a very high-level campaign, yeah. He's the leader of one of the major Nova groups, Team Tomorrow. To repeat Matt's question, do you have the books you need? (Secondary question: Do you know which version of the system you're using?) Also, what kind of character do you want to play? Aberrant allows for a considerable amount of flexibility, but it's easier to help create a character and work up power sets if you know what kind of niche you want your Nova to fill.
  12. All of this. The more information we have about the type of game you're joining, what kinds of characters are allowed (and what kind you're interested in playing), what resources they're using in terms of rule sets and books, and so on, the better we can help you. A lot of the books for the different versions of Trinity are available online, for example, if you don't have them- and almost all the people who read/post here regularly are familiar with both systems. Also, welcome!
  13. This is a quick write-up I did for anyone interested in participating in the group outing Autumn will invite the teens to on her family's property. There's no obligation to be involved, obviously- my thought is that it would be a good opportunity for roleplay, character development (specifically with regard to some short-term aspirations), and general shenanigans apart from all the externally-driven drama of the plot. If your PC would be interested, they're welcome to attend! We can work out the "hows" and "whys" in Discord. That being said, it will be brought up IC in some fashion as well, to give people the opportunity to ask questions or make suggestions. If there are any specifically OOC questions, comments, or concerns, I'd like to hear them! -Vivi Group Camping Proposal Location: The campsite is a broad, roughly circular clearing of mostly bare, packed earth on the edge of a slow-moving creek, surrounded on three sides by tall, narrow pines and a few smaller deciduous species. There is a fire pit dug in the center for cooking and heat, and plenty of seasoned firewood already stacked between a pair of small trees. There is no running water, no wifi, no electricity- no man-made hookups or tech at all. That means no microwave, no USB charger, and no plumbing. Phones and GPS still work, but the absence of development makes the place feel more remote than it actually is. In the event of an emergency: the site is roughly 4 miles from Autumn’s house (~2 miles off the road from her grandparents’ driveway). An ATV could get back there without much problem, but the trail isn’t meant for full-sized vehicle traffic. Getting back there: Autumn’s mom is willing to allow a few (3-4) vehicles parked in the driveway overnight, so carpooling may be a good idea. It’s entirely possible to walk the entire distance in about an hour and a half, or less if the pace is more than “leisurely” (at least one character intends to do this). What to bring: This is just a list of practical recommendations and suggestions to give you an idea of what your character might want or need to have on-hand. It’s not intended to be exhaustive or all-encompassing. -Entertainment. Cards, books, musical instruments, fishing tackle and gear, games, or your own personal electronic devices and charge packs- whatever your character would want to do with 1-2 days away from everything. A few of the bulky/expensive items could probably be foraged from Autumn’s house, or her grandparents’ garage, if someone really wants a canoe or kayak or something. Other ideas: Star charts, binoculars, a journal, homework (ugh), etc. -Food and drinks. Water. For practical purposes, the creek water can be safely boiled, but you’ll want plenty to drink depending on activity level. Stuff for meals and the means to cook them will be provided, but snacks or anything special your character wants/requires will need to be brought along. -Clothes. Basic, sturdy, comfortable outdoor wear. Good quality sneakers or hiking boots (preferred). Light jacket for early morning and evening temps in the 40s; layers are a good idea. Whatever your character needs to do the stuff they enjoy- swim clothes, towel, sandals, etc. -Basic necessities. Standard toiletries, whatever your character needs for general good hygiene. Insect repellent (more for ticks than mosquitoes). Sunscreen. The usual. There’s a first-aid kit, but it never hurts to have more than one. Flashlight and/or lantern. -A bag. You will need this to put your trash in. -A tent, sleeping bag, blanket, pillow, etc. Autumn can furnish a couple, but either everyone’s cramming into 2-3 tents, or other people will need to chip in. -Folding chair, blanket, beach towel, etc. to sit on. The (Basic) Rules of the Site: -If you bring it in, you take it out. If it’s here when you arrive, it stays. -If you don’t know what it is, don’t touch it. -Do nothing to alter the camp site. -Don’t feed the animals. Who's invited?: All core PCs.

  17. Dave has expressed interest in continuing this game when he's able to do so. Although I'm not sure how many people will still be around then, I'm going to do my best to hold this space for him until either that time comes, or he decides to transfer things to another site. Expect to see periodic comments from me here until then. Also, if any of you have questions or comments, feel free to leave them here as well!

  21. I know Dave's having computer issues at the moment, hopefully we can get those resolved and open up shop again.
