Just a quick reminder that downtime and influence actions must be submitted to LVCamST@gmail.com no later than midnight tonight.
Also, please make sure your character is current in the database. The database is the only official record, and the character sheet there is what will be used for resolving downtime and influence actions. Please let me know if you have any questions or need any help with the character database. https://portal.mindseyesociety.org/
Cam/Anarch is this Saturday 6/25, check in at 7:30, game on at 8:00pm, at Shimon and Janelle’s, 1189 Bear Head Street, Henderson, NV 89011.
Two new items are being added to the VSS and go into effect this game
First, Influence actions refresh at the start of game so characters will have their full suite of actions available during game, subject to normal mechanics. If there is no game in any given month, Influence actions refresh at 8:00pm on the fourth Saturday unless otherwise specified by the ST.
Second, going forward Cam/Anarch will use the same XP rule as Sabbat, awarding 20 XP for attending game (subject to chronicle cap and AGR limits) and we will no longer be awarding any downtime experience. If you miss a game you can of course still earn XP up to your cap by attending another MES game, or catch up using AGR. This keeps the Sabbat and C/A venues in sync.
Finally, I forgot to include the prestige awards for the VSS Update Survey this month. That will be included and backdated in next month’s DC report.
I started a thread on facebook about something that I want to talk about on the subject of alt characters. I think it will lead to a lot of discussion that will be easier on FB rather than email.
One of the things I found out when I took over as VST is that there are a lot of people with secret alt characters on the VSS who are never played at games and just do downtimes. So many, in fact, that the majority of downtime and influence actions I processed last month were from characters I had never heard of and never knew existed before I got access to the VST email box. There are downtime coteries comprised almost entirely of secret alts with only one or two active PCs. This is giving those couple of active PCs essentially level 7 and 9 influences with no real cost or investment, and no risk since the existence of the PCs isn’t known to the players outside the VST mailbox.
I am not particularly comfortable with this, but I want to open a discussion among the players as a whole to see what everyone’s feelings are on this. I plan to include something on this topic in writing on the VSS one way or another. I don’t know if that is going to be limits or restrictions on this kind of activity, or just a warning of what is going on so anyone who wants to get into the DT and Influence game knows they need a half dozen hard proxies to compete, or something else I haven’t thought of yet.
Thoughts, comments, ideas?
