    I only have one “internal monologue” for Sebastian and then he is done....and yes...one new Aspiration which you’ll love in the way that Sebastian’s mind
    makes wild leaps.

    He aspires to topple the Autumn King and if necessary take his place

    :)

    @ER: I do like that! What Aspiration are you replacing with it?

    @Erulasto: That is pretty bad luck.

    I simply want to apologize for being MIA the last few days. Taking care of the puppy, plus a certain amount of self imposed stress/guilt about my and my wife's work schedules in relation to taking care of the dog has left me very strung out lately.

    (I won't bore you but put simply, we both work long hours, but want the best for the dog without leaving it alone all day. Fortunately, we have figured a few things out)

    I am working on an IC post now.

    @ER: If you say you are certain about that, I will update it on your character box.

    Again and again, my sincere apologies everyone. As the puppy gets older, less roudy and lets me sleep more, my post rate will normalize. He already has not had any messes in the apartment for an entire week and is less active in the middle of the night. IC post coming in just a second.

    Hey all, my sincere apologies again. To say the last few days have been kicking my butt would be an understatement. On Monday I was at work till after 9pm, and yesterday, before the end of work all I had to eat or drink all day was a small bowl of cereal we give to patients and a little carton of milk.

    Anyways, my post rate should be improved for the rest of the week!

    Reggie's next step, once he has the time, is a direct visit to the catering company, looking to set up a face to face with the CEO. However he will also take a change of clothes, one fitting the company's dress code.

    Regardless of his success setting up a face to face he will use Mask of Superiority (loopholed with the uniform) to gain free access to the building and the company accounts. From there he'll be winging it. Said contract gives status 4 in the organisation, would that be enough to essentially order myself a discount?

    New aspirations;

    1. Sort out the charity gala
    2. Find a gift to officially welcome Songbird to the group
    3. Find out where the disappeared changlings are going

    Sorry everyone for the delays. I was just in the dead center of something called a bomb cyclone (?) which has been terrific fun!

    Power is back, and internet more than a trickle, and cellular service (yes, even that for a time!) so...I’ll be looking forward to getting caught up soon

    ER appears to be a little MIA ATM, I believe due to the disaster that happened in his hometown. I have reached out to him but have not heard back. If need be, I will NPC his character till he is ready to return.

In the spirit of the game and the holiday, I am giving every character one free Halloween beat! I'm not going to tally it up in this post, but you will find updates in your character sheet.

    Hey folks,

    Thanks for the patience and understanding. My father is doing well, all things considered (heart attacks and cardiac catheterizations aren't fun) and life has returned to some normalcy. Took a bit longer than I'd hoped, but I feel confident that his health is stabilizing to the point where he isn't going to have any major issues going forward. So long as he starts looking after himself a bit better.

    Sorry once again!

    Hey all, I've been doing some soul searching and some reviewing on the Will Power recovery mechanics for 2E games, and I want to bring up some thoughts/points and a house rule for everyone to give their feedback on.

    While mundane mortals can simply rest to regain WP, Vampires, Werewolves, Changelings ect are not human and do not easily recover WP. Instead, in 2E the game has the concept of Anchors, which are comprised of Touchstones and Virtue/Vice equivalents. These are called anchors, because they are what help keep the monster tied to their prior mortality. Their mechanics are meant to encourage character driven tension by encouraging the player to put their character in uncomfortable situations as they struggle to maintain their humanity/harmony/clarity (of course this all started with vampire so it may make more sense in that context). So characters are encouraged to explore the duality of their character's monstrous nature and go out of their way to interact with their touchstones to further character/story development and are rewarded with Willpower recovery.

    To clarify the rules of 2E as they exist now:
    -Only mortals can recover WP with time (including a night's rest and between game sessions).
    -Supernaturals can gain 1 WP by doing something that fits with their virtue/vice equivalent.
    -Supernaturals can regain all WP by doing something very very dramatic that fits with their virtue/vice equivalent.
    -Supernaturals gain 1 WP by "defending" their touchstone, and all WP if the act is very "damaging"
    -The recovery of all WP can only occur once per game session per Anchor.

    Honestly, I like the concept behind these mechanics, and I want to propose a few simple house rules to encourage their use, and make it easier to recover WP.
    1. A single WP is simply gained by choosing to interact with your Touchstone. This could be anything from stalking them, to spending money on them. This stacks with the defending the Touchstone mechanic. It will be up to me as the ST to make the interaction meaningful and help drive the story forward.
    - AND if we skip ahead by a few days of in game time, it is assumed
    2. Characters regain all spent willpower between "game sessions"

    Can I have responses as to which house rule players would prefer between option 1 and option 2?

    Hey all, sorry for being MIA, the rest of this week kicked my butt. For what it's worth, I will barely be working next week and can promise a much improved post rate for the next couple of weeks.

    In regards to the discussion, in this OOC thread and others, it seems most players are in favor of the house rule of gaining WP by seeking out Touchstones. Specifically, I believe Ladorak has voiced his support for it. However, I will wait for Ohiska and ER's feedback.

    And IC I guess I am waiting for the team to decide on their next move. It sounds like you want to "Go after Marv", but have not decided on how you are going to do that. Please feel free to give me an Int+Politics + Relevant Status Merit dots (City/Night Reveler's Freehold/Any Court within the Night Reveler's) to see what you know about Marv.
