Torchlight Carnival

Session 2: A Stranger Approaches!

For some reason, I get the feeling that my post titles will resemble Pokemon episode titles.

Players present: Lance (Content Not Found: Vladimir_), Mariah (Content Not Found: Sarah_), and Kyle (Content Not Found: Gorbachov). Brittany defaulted to sleeping in-game.

  • The party meets challenges as they are approached by the seemingly harmless monk known as Gorbachov.
  • With Gorbachov’s coming, it is revealed to Content Not Found: Vladimir_ and _Content Not Found: Sarah that he is in fact a mage and cataloging the supernatural folk within Eastern Europe in order to protect them. Nobody questions it or his status within the Silver Ladder.
  • The Flux, as known via successful memory check for all three present characters, appears and encroaches upon the encampment, heralded by dense fog.
  • The Winter Court, aka the home of things that go bump in the night, sent an invitation personally to Content Not Found: Sarah to the wedding of Oberon and an unnamed person. Entrance is located near Vatican City, in Italy.
  • Lance: earned 4 experience, in part to his hospitality towards the monk-mage.
  • Mariah: earned 4 experience for going through it all via Skype! Kudos!
  • Kyle: earned 4 for not killing the Shaco-rule 63 and keeping a cool head in facing new challengers.
  • Brittany: gained 2 experience, just for being awesome while sleeping. :)

No game Monday, playing Wednesday hopefully in the CC.

Session 1: Prelude

First session we had present all three characters, Content Not Found: Vladimir, Mariah’s character and Brittany’s character (vampire, changeling and human respectively). No names for Mariah’s character or Brittany’s yet.

Here’s a summary of what happened.

  • Established setting: 18th century Eastern Europe — currently a few miles out of Cluj-Napoca, camping by Hoia Baciu Forest.
  • Characters encounter mysterious crop circle in forest. After the unexpected suicide (was it?) of the carnival’s Proprietor, player characters decided to bury the Proprietor in the forest.
  • Mariah managed to successfully recover most of the carnivals currency as well as the will, which leaves the entirety of the carnival to Vladimir.
  • Brittany felt something that grazed her ankle — healing is coming along normally however.
  • Vladimir and Mariah both saw the shadow in the grave. Mariah knows what the shadow is, and what the crop circle truly is.
  • Vladimir must decide whether or not to bring the carnival to Athens, Greece now, or wait until the remaining seasonal workers leave before returning to the winter vacation area.

Mariah: earned 2 extra experience for starting stats thanks to fun roleplaying.
Brittany: earned 2 extra experience for being delightfully oblivious.
Lance: earned 3 extra experience for great voice and good internal character turmoil.

To-do’s for next session:

  1. Print out a Changeling, Vampire and WoD character sheet for next time
  2. Finish fleshing out map for immediate area
  3. Get hold of a copy of Vampire the Requiem for Lance and a hard copy of Changeling the Lost for Mariah.
