Nashville Unveiled

Nashville Unveiled is a twice monthly live action roleplaying game in Nashville, Tennessee. The players take on the roles of humans and/or supernatural creatures such as Vampires, Changelings, and other creatures of legend that inhabit a fictional version of the modern day world. We create stories set in the World of Darkness (a fictional fantasy universe created by White Wolf Publishing). It is basically the current world with a subtle and supernatural twist. Think "X Files" or "Fringe", only the stories are usually told from the perspective the supernatural inhabitants of the world.

New Players are welcome. No experience needed: we'll help you get started. We're a friendly and open group.  Some level of costume is fairly common, but certainly not required.  While the event begins at 5pm, the doors open at 3pm, and it is recommended you early to prepare your character.

Live Action Roleplaying is similar to a murder mystery dinner party. It is a cross between improvisational theater and a board game. Players in the group create a character that they play out over many games, developing their character and his or her relationship to the other characters.

Characters move around in a given area and interact socially with each other, sometimes with props or clues regarding the current stories that they are participating in. When two players take actions that conflict, it is resolved through non-physical means (a deck of cards and their character sheets).  This is not the "foam weapon" style sometimes seen, but rather a story and character oriented event.

You are not confined to having your character match your physical appearance: an 18 year old hipster might play a 62 year old business tycoon. Or a 45 year old woman might portray a 600 year old vampire or a priest who happens to be a werewolf.  Recently, we had a mother of two portray a five year old girl.

Finally, just in case you might be concerned: this is a form of entertainment. We do not actually think we have magical powers any more than an actor playing Peter Pan on stage believes that she can actually fly.

    Lots of research and supernatural discussion. I don't think I've ever run a game that was enjoyed this much that was that much drawing on questions. But it was fun.  I tried to get as much information as possible in play prior to the big mummy game.

    Also, it was an odd inversion of players: everybody who I thought would be there were sick or not there, and people like Craig who said they would not make it showed up. Ah, well. It wound up being a neat group to attack the current plot... after they ignored the replacement one-shot plot I created at the last minute in a panic.

    We have the greatest players ever.

    We have Vampire: the Requiem (Nashville Unveiled) and Werewolf: the Enraged (Music City Frenzy, Werewolf: the Apocalypse updated with nWoD mechanics). Games are held at Cheshire Hall on alternating Saturdays. Turnout varies between half a dozen and two dozen. Both games are an absolute blast and we hope to see you there!

    I see you guys have Nashville Unveiled and Music city frenzy. I am familiar with the world of darkness. What game(s) do you guys play which days, and what is the average turnout?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
