The Story Guide Posted June 8, 2015 Share Posted June 8, 2015 Monday, June 1st Early Evening Many things were said of Prince Giles Del Mar, but all could admit that the Invictus Ventrue certainly knew how to throw a party. Word spread among the Kindred community of his latest diversion for his court and subjects: a midnight safari in the countryside around Cape Town. A meeting place was set, the Belville Veladrome, and the Princeâ€™s limoes were waiting when the cityâ€™s Kindred arrived. The drive took nearly an hour and a half and lead to mostly empty field; massive tents with low tables and large piles of multi-colored pillows filled out the â€˜safariâ€™ feel. Paper lanterns lit the area in a warm glow. True to form, the Prince was dressed in the quintessential British safari hunterâ€™s outfit. He beamed at the gathered monsters and welcomed them with open arms. â€œGreetings, my fine hunters. This evening has a few rules, and then we can begin! First, the prey: scattered around the area are small camps of rhino poachers. Theyâ€™ve been a pernicious problem this year and particularly crafter for their breed of pest. Your goal is to take as many of them as you can tonight. You will receive a point for each body, with bonus points awarded for cleverness, style, and good bragging.â€ He grinned, then wagged a finger at the crowd. â€œHowever, anything that needs to be cleaned up before morning, other than the bodies brought here to camp, will subtract points. Have fun, but mind the Masquerade.â€ He gestured grandly at the tents behind him. â€œFor those not of a hunting frame of mind for the evening, you may earn points by entertaining the court back here at camp. Tell stories, jokes, dance, sing, whatever you think will please. Not all of the court is here yet, and some will go hunting themselves no doubt, but Madelaine and I will be here all night.â€ The seneschal nodded when the Prince motioned to her. She was dressed unusually casually for her in camo sweatpants, a white t-shirt, and an army surplus jacket, but her standard issue clip-board was still cradled carefully in her arms. â€œThere isnâ€™t a safety net on this one, ladies and gentlemen. The poachers are armed and paranoid. If you get in over your head, thereâ€™s no rescue waiting in the wings. I strongly suggest you team up. Points will be evenly split for team efforts and will give you more chances to earn points for style and clever group tactics. Also, the Prince prefers comedy acts and has a penchant for pop songs.â€ Del Mar clutched at his chest and bemoaned, â€œYou give all my secrets away, my dear!â€ Turning back to the gathered predators he announced with a grand gesture, â€œLet the hunt begin!â€ ST Notes and Pictures This is open RP, feel free to introduce your character and mingle. If your PC is going to go straight for the hunt, please give me a Survival roll to track them (or whatever else you're doing to find them). If you want to make rolls for entertaining the court (currently just Madelaine and Del Mar), please give me the appropriate skill roll or PM with what you want to do if you're not sure what roll it should be. Have fun, guys! Prince Giles Del Mar: Seneschal Madelaine Von Gruskov: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
