Vampire: the Requim

  • May 17, 2014 · 5:00 PM

A new World of Darkness Vampire : The Requim will be beginning in Murfreesboro. This group will meet once a month for a slightly longer play time (4-5) hours. In between game sessions players will be encouraged to continue Roleplaying via email or the facegroup group page. Currently we have 2 players and a ST (GM). We also have a venue. Direct PvP will be discouraged but indirect PvP encouraged.... this means in the game there will be laws about vampires directly killing one another openly, but third party plots, schemes, power plays, all the traditional Vampire themes are welcome. If you are interested please let me know as we have just recently began to put this together and already spots have started filling up. Looking forward to hearing from interested players.

    Had an absolutly fabolous time! Thank you for everyone who came. We ran a one shot adventure as a way to get to know each other. Next game we plan to start the campaign. I will update the schedule soon but we should be playing the second weekend of the June. Me and my wife are due to have our first child at the beginning of July so I'd like to play on the early part of June just incase the little one comes early.

    Final update before the game. All characters must be freshly freshly changed vampires and that's it. See you all on Saturday. Also I will have pre generated characters with back stories available

    We are meeting at the student union. ( the new one not the KUC or the James Union Building). The summer hours are only until 8pm so we will probably need to move the start up to 4. This will only be a problem for the first few games and then the hours will be back to normal. The July game will probably have to be moved to later in the month as me and my wife are due to have our first child in the beginning of July. Will 4 pm be a problem for anyone?

      Yea, that's earlier than I can manage. But don't let me alone hold you up.

    Hey everyone, Game is set for 5 pm at MTSU student Union building third floor. We will just find some open space as there is always some available. I really need character ideas and character sheets so we can minimize the bookkeeping before the game and so that I can write the best story for you all to enjoy. Hope to see a lot of you there!

    Can a newly turned Russian immigrant and blog writer survive the hot and sweltering nights of New Orleans?
    Will I ever stop typing things in my Announcer's voice? Find out in the first thrilling episode of Blood and Smoke™!

  • Andy K.

    I lied... about that being the last. I will need backstories or any other relevant information you want me to have concerning your character as well.

    April 18

  • Andy K.

    Last Update. I need your characters if you are wanting to play. I am setting a cap of 2 weeks from now. If I do not have your characters by then I will consider you not interested in playing anymore.
    Please submit them to [masked]

    I need characters to properly craft the best story for all of us.

    Good morning everyone, Just an update to help in character creation. All characters must be recently embraced (meaning in the past year) and will be considered neonates.
    the setting of the game will be New Orleans and you can be recently relocated to the Big Easy or have been from there originally. Influence, Allies, Resources, Knowledge...How these will work in my game will be aplayer with dots in given areas of influence/resource etc will have access to rumors/facts (which is which will be up to you to find out) that other players will not have immediate access to. For instance if you have Influence/ Allies with the local police force you may hear rumors not otherwise known. A Player with more dots than another will of course hear more rumors. These rumors will be given out before each game and can be used however you want.

    Just an update for everyone. I am working diligently in crafting our chronicle. The current plan is to have a first meeting in which to meet and great, and then we will be playing. Slight change. I will be allowing Bloodlines.
    Also I will be releasing City Setting and a brief that will include all the known facts. I am going to base this off your stats in some way and give bonuses to people that have resources dedicated to different covenants and whatnot. So not everyone will be starting the game with the same known information / rumors.

      I don't have the required blood and smoke rules. We need to meet up so I can get started on making a character or do you want me to wait till the first meet and greet? Also is this going to be tabletop or larp?

      April 14

    • Andy K.

      Concerning wether or not we will be a LARP. It has crossed my mind and several people have inquired on this subject. for sure we will not be a boffer LARP, if anything we may spread out from the table a do a dramatic LARP but this will depend on the consensus of the group. If 10 people do show up as I'm expecting this may be the only way to run the group. If we do LARP the only thing different people will need to bring is a deck of cards as that is what you use instead of dice.

  • N.F.I.

    If this ends up being at a time my schedule allows for, I'm definitely interested.

    April 11

  • Andy K.

    Just an FYI for everyone. We will be using the new updated rules from the God-Machine Chronicle. So in the course of reading and researching clans, covenants, and characters please use " Blood and Smoke" the new updated rulebook for Vampire: The Requim.

      What about bloodlines?

      April 9

    • Andy K.

      I do not believe "Blood and Smoke" included bloodlines. I know bloodlines added depth but they also added complexity becasue STs and others had to keep up with just that much information. Although not set in stone as I am not home to fully review this, I think we will probably not use them. One major reason for this is the God Chronicle updated all the merits and added alot of depth there to the point players should not need bloodlines. Right now we are just going to use the Blood and Smoke rulebook, and the GoD Machine Rule Chronicle (although I believe everything in the GMC is in Blood and Smoke)

    Lastly. We are not being harcore. Players can RP as much or as little as they want between games. totally up to you. We realize people have lives and this is a game, so have fun. but we do hope that players will take certain things seriuosly. Attendence is one,, and the other is the minor deadlines like character submission. The reason for this is to help the STs make the best game possible for you all, the players. Without your characters sheets, backstories, etc we as STs cannot craft stories in which we include you to the best of our ability. Thank you all again for your interest and I look forward to hearing from you through email and even more look forward to getting this game up and going.

    All public Roleplay between meetings must be placed on this Facebook page. This means if within reason you meet or do anything that other players would without alot of effort be informed of or have knowledge of you must post on the group page.
    Any private dealings, conversations etc you must CC myself or the co ST in an email. If you chat through gchat or texts or something then you must summarize the conversation to a ST. In game if the STs are not CCed, or informed then it never happened. This is set in stone as we cant have things just pop up, or Metad. There will be a few other housekeeping things we will discuss at the first meeting as well but nothing major. Also I need everyone interested to please email me so that I can comprise an email chain. My email is [masked].

    Okie dokie everyone. I want to first thank everyone for the their interest in the game. I am going to leave this open until Saturday evening to give others a chance to RSVP. After that we will be setting a first meeting date which will be an informal introductory meeting where everyone can come and meet the other players. At this time I will ask everyone to have their characters ready as this meeting will also serve the players as a chance to introduce their characters and begin the "Dance" so to speak. We have at this time around 10 players and are still accepting more. I have coordinated with another Storyteller and because of the number of interested people we will be working together as Co Storytellers. Here is a rough outline of things moving forward. After we close RSVPs I will begin taking character submissions. right now I would like to restrict things to the core rule book/ blood and smoke. There will also be a facebook group page formed.

    Hello. I played VtM many moons ago. It was always my favorite RPG. I'm an older (43 year-old) family man, and would really like to give VtR a go. I get that a lot of the fun from RPGs comes from how players mesh, so if my age and status are a detractor, no biggie. I get it and would harbor no problem ill feelings.

      Age will not matter. I am 32, several guys playing will be in ther 30s and another in his 40s so dont worry about that.

  • Zak S.

    What day will you hold it on?

    April 7

    • Andy K.

      Currently the day is up in the air as we wanted to gauge interest first. I do know it will be sometime on the weekend, and again one time a month. This could be anywhere from Sat/Sun mornings to Fri nights.

  • AndyG

    Hi there, I've never played in this genre before so I'm curious as to the depth of expected knowledge?

    April 7

    • Andy K.

      You wont have to be an expert at all so dont worry about that. Knowledge of the genre and the mechanics is preferred, especially since the style we are playing you wont want to be a fish among sharks if you get me.

      April 7

  • Zak S.

    I would like to attend, and I'm sure my husband would find it a lot of fun as long as it didn't conflict with Requiem here in Nashville.
