Forum Status/Updates

Post by Chris Shaffer on Tue Jul 01, 2014 6:42 am

So as of this point, the forum is still a work in progress. I'm still working on character creation guidelines, a list of available bloodlines, and working on a post explaining the system I'm using for taking over the city bit by bit. There's also going to be a rules page establishing how things will work during downtime, a few other basic necessities, and so forth.

I do have basic setting stuff; enough to get people prepared for a character creation session, at least.

But if there are any questions I can answer now, just ask in the General Info forum and I'll get to them ASAP.

By the way, in case you missed it in the 'Primer' post, the book that we're predominantly using for this game is this one: Blood and Smoke: The Strix Chronicle. If you're not familiar with the new rules updates to the World of Darkness, this should help.

If you're not familiar at all with the World of Darkness, here is a free resource that might be able to help. It's mostly got the old rules, but the rules in there combined with the Rules Update have pretty much the entirety of the basic system.

Some basic character creation guidelines and a list of bloodlines are now available. A proper list of house rules and conversions is in the works.

Okay, all that's missing at this point is conversions of the bloodline mechanics (some of which are easy, some of which less so) and a proper write-up for my 'taking over the city' rules. Both of those will be ready by the 26th, even though there's a chance that that might become another session of building characters and player orientation.

Okay, 'taking the city' rules are posted. I've also made a couple of little tweaks and updates to the character creation guidelines and house rules. Aside from stuff I've mentioned in the house rules, I've clarified some of the approval levels of the Merits and now Herd is Mid-Approval regardless of level (basically for 'so I know what the Herd means' reasons). Some of the bloodline conversions are taken care of. Still working on the rest. If there's anything I seem to be missing, please let me know.

The bloodline conversions should be up. When possible, I kept them as close to the original functionality as I could for simplicity's sake. But at the same time, I made sure they remained in line with current powers (for instance, Disciplines that dealt aggravated damage before now just deal lethal to vampires).

I think I've got all of the basics and bare minimums covered. If I've missed anything or screwed anything up, let me know. Other than that, I'm putting together some more setting stuff and taking a closer look at the Merits in other supplements (in particular, the recent clan books) for possible inclusion. I can't make any promises on those, though, as many of them already have equivalents among the Merits in Blood and Smoke.

Okay, in case anyone missed it, I added a bit on LARP gestures and such to the basic rules and systems thread. Also, because it's another of those 'I'm so used to following it anyways I don't even think about it any more' things, there are a few basic hard rules I put in the first post on that thread (so they're not buried at the end). I'm also going to turn this thread into a general forum status thread for major updates and what have you.

I've added the rulings we came up with on the fly tonight regarding the Informed Condition and city-claiming rolls, as well as the thing about roll limits.

For those of you who haven't flown with me before, this is just a part of the process of running with a system I haven't run before. I actually kind of find it fun and exciting to figure out these little fiddly bits as we go. I'm weird that way.
