Blood and Thunder - A World of Darkness Chronicle

The second Massassa War has begun.

When the Avatar Storm struck, Clan Tremere used this as an opportunity to strike at it's parent, the Order of Hermes, lusting after the magickal lore and places of power of the Old Order. However, even with it's mightiest chantries destroyed and it's arch mages now gone, the Lions of Hermes have been shed of only one thing - sloth and weakness. The last Archmage of Hermes forms an audacious plan to bring the downfall of Clan Tremere, and gathers Disciples from the Order and allies from the 9 Traditions of Magick.  The Tremere must be stopped, or else their Antediluvian will transcend to win the Jyhad and bring forth Gehenna, challenging Caine himself!

This is a world of darkness crossover chronicle set in the setting of Ascension Nova (http://ascensionnova.wikia.com/). The God Machine Chronicles rules update and Blood and Smoke will be extensively used. Play as either a Mage of the 9 Traditions or a Kindred in this chronicle. This chronicle will mesh elements of both the old and new worlds of darkness extensively - The Awakened and Kindred will be taken  from Classic World of Darkness, while Hunters, Werewolves, Sin-Eaters, Prometheans, Lost and Arisen will be taken from their respective NWoD game lines.

Game sessions will be held both online and at Cranberry Cafe. Contact me for character details.

      Chris is it true? Did you cancel the game?

      April 8, 2014

  • Chris W.

    Bell! Next game is scheduled on Easter Sunday. Suffice it to say I'm pretty sure a number of us won't be able to make it. I'm sure some folks can, though, so... just letting you know if you want to push it back or something!

    Nice to meet you guys, Ronnie, Haig, and Anthony. Definitely great to see you, both Chris, Liz, Law, Joseph, Robort

    Any one here or coming?

  • Ronnie S.

    I don't think that Chris answered my Question about Kindred of the East. Their rules were nearly those of nWoD. Is that a possibility Chris? I have so many Ideas. This is because I have not Really gamed in well over a year.

    April 5, 2014

    • Kai B.

      That's my opinions on it.

      You should definitely ask Chris in person tomorrow, since it's going to be character creation session.

      When I ran KotE years ago, there are enclaves in practically every major US city. Their way of expanding and to get those that actually become one it they aren't in Japan, China, an all of those other places where they are mostly.

    Anyone going to be at the Cranberry earlier than 2pm, I was thinking of bringing Sentinels of the Multiverse Card game to play with some people. But only if there will be people there early I guess.

    What is the method of Character Creation for the various things that are playable? I want to get this character done for sunday.

    April 4, 2014

    • Ronnie S.

      I was going to play a human any way. So it is just the nWoD

      April 4, 2014

    • Chris W.

      Essentially yeah. The character sheets and everything are all the same. 5/4/3 in attributes, 11/7/4 in skills, apparently 11 points in merits. Willpower equals Resolve + Composure. Health is Size (normally 5) + Stamina.

      April 4, 2014

  • Kai B.

    Hey Chris, two questions for you....

    1. which version of demantation do you want me to use?
    2. do you want me to write up character sheets for my retainers?

    April 1, 2014

  • M. S.

    Interested depending on date change. Might play a nWoD risen or a Sin Eater.

    March 17, 2014

    • Joseph R.

      Yo rob is this the wod game Chris was talking about at the last l5r game?

      March 30, 2014

    • Robert

      Yep, this is it.

      March 30, 2014

  • Chris B.

    I've just moved the date of this game to sunday 4/6/2014. Please update your calendars accordingly.

    March 28, 2014

    • Joseph R.

      Hay Chris I wanted to know when is the date for the wod game you are making from the L5R game?

      March 28, 2014

  • Kai B.

    I believe this game is going on during the same time as Rob's game "Shadowrun: No Future" session.

    Are we going keep the time or moving the first session to another day???

    March 22, 2014

  • Kai B.

    Since we are using nWoD rules for character creations, I'll play a female Venture Invictus character possible with Malkavien bloodline.

    March 12, 2014

    • Chris B.

      Your are correct. Combo disciplines are called Devotions in Requiem, I'll convert on a case by case basis. The Vampire translation guide has all of the clans translated. Do you have access to it?

      March 18, 2014

    • Kai B.

      Yes and thanks. Now I understand.

      March 18, 2014

  • Kai B.

    I am interested. I have a kindred character in mind, but needed to be approved. At same time, I am thinking of playing Demon the Fallen or Sin-Eaters.

    @Chris - if I am playing a mage or kindred, then I would use the cWoD version. If I'm playing anything else, then using the nWoD version?? How does that work?

    March 10, 2014

    • Ronnie S.

      Has anyone did a conversion of Kindred of the East for NWoD? I have never got my fill of them.

      March 18, 2014

    • Chris B.

      Not that I know of. Unfortunately, the Kuei-jin were very closely tied to the OWod cosmology. I'll have to consider carefully before attempting conversion, considering their unique powers.

      March 18, 2014

  • Ronnie S.

    Is it Strictly Supers? Or can I play a Humie Witch or psychic?

    March 10, 2014

    • Chris B.

      I see no reason why not. Psychics will be as per the usual NWoD sources. Linear Sorcerers will follow special rules, as Hedge Magic/Sorcery in NWoD is rote-only magic that fails in front of Sleepers. Get with me on that,

      March 18, 2014

  • Chris B.

    We'll have to work out how Prometheans interface with everyone else - remember, Prometheans cause supernatural blight - but that is definitely doable.

    March 10, 2014

    • Robert

      "There's a spell for that."

      (Promethean book Magnum Opus page 114, takes Mind 3, a starting Mage could do it)

      March 10, 2014

    • Chris W.

      There's also an option that the Disquiet simply doesn't affect supernatural types - ie how the Delirium/Lunacy doesn't affect others, nor does the Beast or Paradox. Of course, there's always the Wasteland to contend with!

      March 11, 2014

  • Ronnie S.

    OOOOO, Are you Full? I WANT TO PLAY WOD!!!

    March 10, 2014

  • Chris W.

    An nWoD crossover game, Bell? Permission to play a Promethean? And how will they translate into the new Blood and Smoke rules? We should probably work this out!

    March 10, 2014

    • Robert

      Reprising our Mage-Prommie action in a oWoD fiction, nWoD mechanics, GMC update crossover game sounds utterly fantastic.

      Need details wrt online sessions and scheduling is hopefully not set in stone (saturdays are overloaded blargh) but upon cursory inspection VERY much interested.

      March 10, 2014

  • Chris B.

    I'm switching game systems, but I will be bring all relevant materials. Just bring paper, pencils and dice. I will also be rescheduling so as to not conflict with Chris Sherwood's Black Crusade game.

    March 5, 2014

  • Justin L.

    Do I need to bring anything?

    February 25, 2014

  • Chris B.

    Anyone can come! We'll be doing character creation at the 1st session.

    February 3, 2014

  • daniel r.

    Can anybody come or do you need a special invite ?
