New game, open to new players!
"I am myself just as much evil as good, and my nation is--
And I say there is in fact no evil;
(Or if there is, I say it is just as important to you,
to the land, or to me, as anything else.)"
-- Walt Whitman
The Agent hauls some nuggets of yellow metal that shine dully in the lamplight. You aren't sure what he's getting at, haven't been since you agreed to come up to the woods north of the big metropolis to do some hunting. It all seems so distant, so dreamlike, ever since you saw that foreign girl in the woods --
"What is gold?" he asks.
"Gold's an element, a metal --"
"Wrong! What about your friend, what does he think gold is?"
"Gold was an element when I went to school," said I.
"It has not been an element for two weeks," said the Agent. "And except for the General, and the Professor who discovered it's true nature, you youngsters are the only people in the world who know it."
This is going to be a session of Lamentations of the Flame Princess: Weird Fantasy Role-Playing, which is a game I was turned on to by rummaging through a friend's attic! In play style, it plays a little like a simplified DnD, but in content, it focuses on the gothic, weird, macabre, encouraging elements of grindhouse horror -- which I find to be a close philosophical twin to some of the themes in World of Darkness. Ergo, I am hoping there will be some interest here!

Disclaimer: I am trying my hand at GMing/Storytelling. Please bear with me. I am doing it fueled by the purest desperation of simply never finding a game on when I can attend sessions for it. I hope some of you will join me in this endeavor.
If anyone has a suggestion for a space (I am not a huge fan of Au Bon Gout, but will use it if absolutely need be), please let me know!
