They are the Gifted. Feared for their unique powers, they have been hounded for centuries, and forced to practice their Arts in secret.
The time for hiding is over.
A Time of Reckoning draws near. It marks the end of an era and the beginning of a new one -- or the destruction of all things. The choices the Gifted make will determine what the future will hold.
Alrighty, did try to start a Witchcraft game before, but it didn't work out all that great. Before I work too much on this, I want to try and find out player interest and whether they would want to play rule based or free-fore. Book is be eden studios and be downloaded for free from drivethrurpg.com. Please peeps, help me out in this one. Updates would be like once a week at best with times for three or possibly more weeks between updates especially in nov when I have a month long field op but will try and get blackberry so I'll have mobile internet usage.
Oh oh! Me loves me some occult! I'm kind of bogged down trying to learn 4e right now, so free form would be a little easier, but if it's D20 based it shouldn't be too hard to figure out.
Yeah let us know some more information and I think all of us could create a lovely little coven together for you
I download the book too. The system looks interesting. Pretty similiar to WoD and the Serenity RPG as far as character creation goes.
Hey Eol: Remember that game where you played that spanish dude and the setting was in the 1800s ish. That's what this game reminds me of, except we're set in the present. The setting as presented in the book seems very neat! I really enjoyed reading the various stories.
I'm interested as well. It would depend on what you have in mind, Vesper, as far as posting frequency, how long you expect the game to take in real life, how long you expect the game to take, and the type of game (problem solving/ hack-n-slash/ character development/ etc). Also, hearing how dedicated you are to this game would be good too.
"This is a one-shot adventure that will involve the PCs hunting down and rooting out some evil that is threatening a certain place. It will require some investigating work and likely some combat against various mooks, before you actually face the BBEG.
"I expect this adventure will take six months to complete, at the rate of one post per week. I expect players to be committed to that and I will be looking to update every Sunday to move the game forward. If you miss two weeks, you're out. Sorry, but we want to keep the game moving.
"I already know I'll be busy during the month of December (exams and christmas and such) so we'll likely take a hiatus there. Otherwise, I hope to see this game though! "
That's just an example of what I'm looking for. I think it will also help us as players to know if we can realisticly commit to playing this game.
Regardless, I have a concept in mind as well. Likely a second sight or a second sight / divinely inspired character priest.
I also think have a "high bast" character in the party would be cool. It would be like a PC playing some persons familiar. Very neat idea!
Anyway... would love to hear more from you, Vesper, about the game. Looks like you have lots of interest!!
Good ol' Alejandro... *smiles*... that was a fun character and game, too. You're right that this has the same kind of feel to it... and my brain's been churning it over since I saw the recruitment. And then you read through the rulebook and all those short stories and such... *shudders*...
Soooo,I've been playing with a character idea already...
