Good evening!

As we move closer to working directly with White Wolf and their technology vendor, Knetik, we have been asked to help with beta testing www.worldofdarkness.com.

If you are interested in helping out and earning 5 National Prestige, we ask that you go to www.worldofdarkness.com and register for an account. It is free and easy.

Once you have registered, on the left hand side of the screen you will see a place for “Memberships”. Click on the little pencil icon.

The next box that pops up will show a + to add a membership. Click on the “+”. Two text fields will appear.

For the group name, type “MES” (no quotes).

For the Membership ID, type your membership number.

Click “Save”.

We will be requesting periodic reports from Knetik and awarding prestige based on the membership numbers they gather.

Once you’ve registered, feel free to play with the site. At the bottom off each page is a link to “Report a bug”. Use this early and often to help strengthen their site.

If you had previously registered, and you go to www.worldofdarkness.com, click the portrait icon on the top right after logging in, and click on ‘My Story’. Then the ‘Membership’ will appear on the left of the screen that
shows up.

All the best and good hunting!

Masquerade venue updates

Hey friends, I’ve reviewed all approvals for the VSS, and deleted the duplicate VSS.

There will be a History Game on the 24th.

Remember that if you want your character to have been at the IA Acquisition of Las Vegas, you’ll have to spend the appropriate VIP for that. If your character is at the signing during the history, and you don’t have the VIP on your sheet, your character will not have any knowledge you may have gained from the game.

I will have a host of NPCs available for players who want to have an active roll in the History game and don’t want to/can’t use their characters.

Game in July is going to be the 29th to give some leeway to the players going to MESCON.

I’m going to set up ‘Business Hours’ for me doing vampire things as an ST. This is for me to try and get things organized and reply in a timely fashion. I know some of you have waited a week or longer between replies from me, so I’m going to try and be more prompt. I will be doing game related activities on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday afternoons, 2-5, from now on. Feel free to message me on facebook, or send emails to lvcamst@gmail.com for questions and concerns.

White Wolf’s announcements at World of Darkness Berlin

From the BoD:

By now some of you have heard of White Wolf’s announcements at World of Darkness Berlin regarding their upcoming community tools for World of Darkness games, which will be at worldofdarkness.com

While we don’t have all the details worked out yet, rest assured that we have already been in discussions with White Wolf and their technical partner about these new solutions, and we have our very own Holly Houtekier, MES Director, and Ephraim Gregor, our National Tech Admin, there for in-person discussions about the path forward, and how these resources would be integrated into our tech tools. For now, expect our tools to keep working exactly as they have been, and we’ll let you know when there’s more information.

At WoD Berlin White Wolf also announced BNS is hosting Tampa By Night, which will be running September 28th-30th in Tampa FL. The MES will be holding at least 2 games there, and tickets and schedule will be out by the end of the month. This event will not be in the same format as previous By Nights, but will be a boutique experience taking place in an exciting setting environment. More information will be coming from BNS within the next couple of weeks.

Cheers,

New Masquerade chronicle planning

Hello Friends. I’ve been reading up on the new setting document for C/A and have been working on creating a VSS. I’d like to get together with interested players to finalize the Vegas setting, and get people’s opinions on the type of characters and stories they’d like to see in game.

Currently, I’m looking at a contested city. The Independent Alliance will be the controlling faction, having dealt their boons to control Las Vegas Proper and Paradise. With the rise of the Anarch movement, most of these Kindred have abandoned the outer reaches of Clark County and secured their territory in North Las Vegas. Surviving members of the Ivory Tower have moved many of their local interests to Henderson.

All of this will depend on what players are interested in, and the number of players we’ll get in the venue. I’ll be trying to run quite a few NPCs to move some of the political plots along, but again, this is speculative.

I’m looking at setting up a social on Saturday, April 29 at 3 PM to hang out and discuss the setting. The idea for this night is to meet up, discuss some of the story elements of our venue, answer any questions, and then head over to the Millenium Fandom Bar for their Vampire vs Werewolves night.

Location TBA
