So it looks like we may be starting the game soon. Probably in early August. I’m still finishing up all the basic setting needs so that personalities, plots, and other things are all in motion and (mostly) fleshed out when we start. Sandbox game for the win!
I AM looking at likely utilizing Google+ Hangouts and the website Roll20 (Roll20.net) for the game. This will allow us to all play without always having to be face to face and should limit the amount of scheduling conflicts we have. I’ve already stated that I will be running sessions as long as we have 3 or more players to play. If you miss a session, that’s on you. I’m not going to be coddling anyone. You either want to play, and make time, or you don’t play that week.
That’s also part of the reason I’m looking at doing the online gaming thing. This will help accommodate those individuals who don’t live very close to me. I am still willing to have people “at the table” with me playing face to face. A Laptop will still be necessary in order to work with those players who aren’t with us in person.
I am also still going to be working in some special “Drama Cards” and will be keeping close track of which cards everyone has. I think these will add a good amount of flair to the game.
Lastly, this is a Vampire game. Vampires can sometimes be backstabbing assholes when what you are doing hinders their long-term goals. Thus I will ALLOW the manipulating, lying to, and even attacking of other player characters. PvP is entirely possible although it is discouraged for the obvious reasons of group unity, possible hurt feelings, and the fact that there will already be plenty of other enemies for you to worry about.
Please leave comments and thoughts for what you are thinking, what you would like to see, or any questions!
