These are the final days-
The signs are clear:
Even our pups know
That this is the age of the Apocalypse!
El Tiradito. Located in one of the Old Barrio neighborhoods in downtown Tucson, The Wishing Shrine (as it is known to the locals), on any given night, glows by the light of several dozen candles lit by those few who still believe the old legend. There are several versions, all of which involve a trio of ill-fated lovers. One young man meets a violent death at the hands of a jealous husband. Since he is guilty of adultery, he is not allowed to be buried in the church cemetery. Instead, he is buried in the exact spot where he was struck dead.
Though the shrine is now little more than the crumbling facade of an old Barrio home, many (mostly locals) still come to light a candle for the man who was buried there, say a prayer for his soul, and to make a wish. Sometimes, those wishes even come true. Even those who claim not to believe the legend still avoid the place, especially at night. There have been more than a few disappearances associated with the shrine.
This, of course, suits the Garou just fine. El Tiradito, like many places in the World of Darkness, is more than it seems. Though the shrine has moved three times from its original location, it remains a place of spiritual power- what the werewolves refer to as a Caern. The Sept of The Castaway (the English translation of El Tiradito) watches over the site, as well as their kin who live among the residents of the surrounding neighborhood. Recently, though, several of those kin have fallen ill, inexplicably. No procedure, whether mundane or magical, has proven effective in treating them. There has been one death, so far, associated with the disease. The future of the Sept depends on the survival of their kinfolk. Will they find a cure in time, or will this be the last generation of Garou in Tucson?
After agonizing all weekend over which WoD game to run, I decided to come back to my original inkling and run Werewolf. I just can't resist with this big beautiful 20th Anniversary Edition tome on its way to my doorstep. There were three respondents (so far) and all three seemed to be pretty open to whatever. One wasn't a huge Werewolf fan, but I think I can make him a believer.
The date and time I have set are *tentative*. So please, if you are interested but can't make it on that date please RSVP anyway and we will work something out. I'd like to find one or two more players (no more than 6 total) for this game. The first date will be a character creation session only.
