Season 6 Dates!

by Ralph on Wed Jun 12, 2019 10:28 am

Prospectors!


Today I spoke to the new Camp Director and I was able to get tentative dates for season 6.


However, that came with a big caveat that I need everyone to understand. Going forward, all Prospects Dates are to be considered tentative until at least 60 days out. The camp will not secure our dates until 60 days out in preference for larger groups.


The XOs will inform everyone when we have confirmed dates so you can make appropriate plans.


Without further ado; here are the Season 6 Dates.


Game 1 - September 13-15

Game 2 - October 25-27*

Game 3 - December 13-15

Game 4 - January 24-26

Game 5 - March 6-8

Game 6 - April 24-26


* The game 2 date may move to the following weekend, Nov 1-3.


Let me know if you have any questions.

Hello,


I'm stickying this post here because it's recently been brought to our attention. It looks like sbcglobal.net currently has our registration emails blocked. I'm working on fixing the problem, but in the meantime, please use emails from other providers to register - we'll hopefully get this fixed soon, but *just in case*...

S5E6 DATE CHANGE - New date April 19-22.

by Ralph on Thu Mar 14, 2019 1:50 pm

All,


I just got word from the camp that they need to change our final date for the season. They have asked us to move to April 19-22.


On the good news side of things, this means we will no longer need to have a shortened game.

If you have multiple forum accounts...

by Brian on Fri Feb 08, 2019 9:45 pm

Please don't forget to link your accounts if you happen to have multiples. This ensures XP is tallied correctly for your accounts and allows you to quickly switch between them with a simple dropdown instead of having to log out/in repeatedly.


Thank you

S5R2.1 Released

by Ginger on Wed Jan 30, 2019 11:02 pm

Changelog:

Feeding on Changelings now causes Enchantment.

Change to Enchantment - Enchantment no longer causes forgetting; it now causes Rationalize.

Rationalize - A new power to protect the Veil and secrets. Currently only used as part of Enchantment.

Parrying - You may not parry packets, bullets, or physical ranged attacks.


Removed Trapping - Trapping is not yet ready for prime time; rules team has pulled it for now.


Minor changes:

Lucid Dreamer merit - changed to reflect new Enchantment rules.

Shattering Crescendo - fixed.

Clarity in Obeah tree - removed 30 second charge timer

All references to Iron as a special material have been replaced with Cold Iron.


Answers to questions, before you ask them!

Changeling Itemmaker: Coming soon! If you need Changeling Fetishes, (either the Item background or because you are a Nocker) please drop a PM to Rules Team and we will help you build it. Alternately, you may wait until the Itemmaker is ready, and collect your tag at a future date.


Trapping: also coming soon! It just needs more polish. We will publish as an appendix when it is released.


Gift of Enchantment and Enchant Object are two names for the same power. We will clean this up with the next edition.

Clarity will remove enchantment

Shaking off will remove enchantment.

Ending an Enchantment early (eg Clarity, Shaking off) does not avoid the Rationalize effect.

Enchantment does not interact with Mental Overwrite effects.


Changelings do not need to spend Glamour to enchant Vampires who feed from them.


Cold Iron is a special material, just like gold or silver.

Normal ‘metal’ weapons like swords and guns are not Cold Iron

Changes to S5R2 Rulebook

by Ralph on Fri Jan 25, 2019 12:00 am

The XOs have coordinated with the Storytellers and Rules team to make the following changes:


We are releasing the Shadow Arts of Contempt and Delusion.


However, we are also putting a rule in that says you may only know one tree from Seelie or Shadow arts.


This is intended to be temporary (likely though the rest of the season, possibly longer) until additional arts can be developed.


Additionally, based on the passionate feedback from some of our players, Rules Team will be reviewing the "Vampires feeding from Changling rules" at their next meeting. More news on that next week.


We thank everyone for their continued patience.
