I've been thinking of running a game on here for a while, and if I get enough interest, I think it's going to be a modern supernatural game. The best decription I've got so far is if the World of Darkness Hunters (http://whitewolf.wikia.com/wiki/Hunter:_The_Reckoning) were part of an organization like The SCP Foundation (http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/). And yes I'd be taking quite a bit of inspiration from both. Characters would be "awakened" in that they'd see through the glamour of various supernatural races - as in, most of the time, they'll be able to spot a vampire/werewolf/fey/etc on sight. Many will also develop further talents, but nothing to put them on the "superhero" level - a good example of an appropriate power level would be something like the "Jedi hand wave", or being able to go unnoticed (like a personal Somebody Else's Problem field), or enhanced strength/toughness (though I think Captain America-level would be the absolute limit here). Emphasis for character skills would probably be on combat and/or research, and I'd suggest that anyone who has powers beyond seeing through glamour have a lower overall skill level.

Anyway. Anyone interested?

I'd be up for that since i got voted out of my hunter game here in town :(

I think I'm required to be interested :P

But you know I've been wanting to do a paranormal RP for a while.

I haven't played RPGs in quite a few years (my last game was some weird hybrid of Ghostbusters International, CoC and whatever interesting sourcebooks the GM had found that week), but I'm in :)

Alright, I've got a run of five days off in a row (it's been closing shifts, thus the lack of replies from me), so I'm going to write up some info for the game and either post it in a thread or link it. In the meantime, let's get some character info on here. Just basics:

Name and Code Name (if wanted - Mr Johnson can be Agent Johnson if he wants - but any code name will be less "007" and more Reservoir Dogs or American Gods - Agent White, Agent Blue, Agent Green, Agent Wood, Agent Town, etc).
Place of origin (anywhere from just the country to a specific city).
Background (doctor, police, teacher, military, etc) and any specific skills that stand out.
Powers beyond seeing the unseen, if wanted. All characters will be able to see the supernatural - that ability is what led FEND (the Foundation for Extra-Normal Defense) to recruit them to begin with.
What role the character is expected to play in FEND - research, field agents, or something a bit more specific.


For examples, here are a couple of NPCs I'll probably use (both pulled from a story Kheldarson and I are writing, which the Foundation also comes from - though there the Foundation are major antagonists).

Name: Cassandra <Last name classified> (Agent Cassandra, or just San to friends)
Place of Origin: London, England
Background: A number of odd jobs over many years. In addition to having general knowledge on a number of topics, Cassandra is highly skilled with a sword and many firearms, but favors a pistol. She also serves as a counselor for the Foundation, helping ensure that the job's stresses do not overwhelm newer agents.
Abilities: Cassandra does not age, and has never physically progressed beyond roughly 30 years of age. However, she has been serving with the foundation for ███ years, but prefers remaining a field agent over taking any higher position.
Role: Field Agent, Medical, Counseling.

Name: Mr. Black (Black has consistently refused an Agent designation or code name. His full name is classified.)
Place of Origin: Italy, or so he claims.
Background: Information broker, <classified>, and all-around jerk.
Abilities: Black is able to mimic others, copying both superhuman abilities and physical skills. His is considered one of the more powerful abilities seen in the foundation, and would be considered an EN-2 were he not working for us.
Role: Field Agent, Command.

Name: Fred Masters..Agent Silver
Place of Origin: Iowa
Background: Private investigator.
Abilities: Perfect memory, Heightened Observational Skills, and he has psychic visions * (see below)
Role: Investigator (field agent).
Skills : Basic Hand to Hand Combat, Firearm training (mostly small firearms), Knowledge of Most state and federal laws, Photography and film knowledge, Forensic Photography, Interview Techniques, Stealth and surveillance, Forensics and research/electronic surveillance.

When he first started having the visions he would pass out for hours, now even the most powerful of the visions would just bring him to his knees in pain. The majority of his visions are of the past, but a very rare few have been of the future.

First one works fine. Any mundane skills of note?

Mytical
11-03-2011, 07:24 PM
I'd say the normal for Private Investigators, whatever that might happen to be. Some minor self defense (Chuck Norris he is not). Might need to pick somebody's brain for what skills would go good with a PI. He'd definitely have small firearms training (Concealed Carry).

Edited the post for some of the skills google says is required for a PI.

Name: Siobhan (no last name) but friends call her Von (phonetic last syllable of her name). Agent Irish.
Place of origin: Boston raised but Irish born (moved when an infant).
Background: Linguist with a interest in Celtic cultures and martial arts. Fluent in a handful of languages and a master at accents. Knows basics of most martial arts but is proficient only in aikido (doesn't have any specific belt cause she wasn't trained in a typical dojo). Proficient in most small arms as well. Prefers unarmed combat.
Powers: strong empath, and telepathy with deep concentration.
Position: field agent but does research on abilities like her own when not in the field.

Kheldarson
11-04-2011, 03:48 AM
Name: Loren Carson.
Place of Origin: Roanoke, VA
Background: Street magician/bursar who makes ends meet anyway she needs to. Proficient in sleight of hand, lock picking, sneaking away, talking her way out of things, and entertaining. (Why, yes, I like playing rogues. Why do you ask?)
Powers: That sleight of hand thing? It's real. She can make small objects disappear and reappear at will. Can't be bigger than her hand.
Position: Unwilling field agent.

Three so far, and I imagine Sarlon will join in soon. Do we want to do the introductory posts like Mytical did in Section 3?

Kheldarson
11-04-2011, 04:06 AM
Up to you.

Sarlon
11-04-2011, 02:33 PM
I'll make a post soon as kabe approves my idea of the character

KabeRinnaul
11-05-2011, 03:52 AM
Alright. Sarlon just needed a couple adjustments, and I'd like to ask dragonwings to include a restriction on the telepathy - like only with heavy concentration. But, looks like we might as well get started. I think we'll go ahead and do the intro posts.

So who wants to start?

Sarlon
11-05-2011, 07:17 AM
Name and Code Name: Sarah Tolami aka agent in training

Place of origin: Miami FL USA

Background: Born on the streets she is EXTREMELY smart, an orphan at an early age. while young she grew up fast and was only recently recruited. has a small problem with authority figures, but her street smarts are a little to good for her age.

Powers beyond seeing the unseen: edietic memory (can't spell but fancy term for photographic memory), fast learner.

What role the character is expected to play in FEND: research and field work/agent.

Jay 2K Winger

Name and Code Name: Joey Monfries -- Agent Newton
Place of origin: Chicago
Background: Joey, a bit of a prodigy, got work as a profiler for the FBI (a la the BAU from "Criminal Minds") for several years before FEND offered him a job. As far as the FBI is concerned, Joey now does profiles for a private security firm. (Which, when one gets right down to it, isn't too far off the mark.) Joey has a degree of eidetic memory for anything he's read, and an intuitive grasp of many fields. He has basic self-defense training and firearms experience from his FBI days.
Powers: In addition to the standard FEND ability ("sense unseen"), Agent Newton has an ability that FEND has classified as "tactile postcognition." When touching something, he has the ability to 'read' its entire history. This lets him know an object's origin and what it has experienced. FEND makes use of this ability when researching artifacts, usually at one of its secure facilities, but has sent him into the field to investigate strange disturbances.
Role: Primarily research.

Sorry about my lack of response. Been cleaning up the house, and was up late watching Dune with Kheldarson tonight. I'll give everyone a reply Sunday morning.

Oh, and the "Foundation Files" link in my sig leads to material I've written up for the game. I'll add to it as we go along.

Kheldarson
11-06-2011, 07:12 AM
Also to note: since Kabe and I are understandably in the same house and all, when he gets busy with work, I'll be helping with the DM'ing duties. I'll mark them differently in my posts.

Heh, when I am really interested in something (and have time..work starting soon, college, low energy cause illness is acting up) might have to reign me in sometimes. :p. Right now, just anxiously waiting to see what the set up is like for wherever they are taking me :D.

Would be good, unless you want me to create it. *cackles manically* oh I mean..I could do that.

KabeRinnaul
11-06-2011, 07:30 PM
Nah, I got it. Though one thing to remember - it's modern day, so mostly modern technology (though there are definitely going to be a few supergenius types in FEND that provide some advances), and they have nowhere near the resources Section 3 did. This is less "Will Smith's Men In Black" and more "the CIA for vampires".

Edit: And there you go.

Jay, I have to say, you have been watching way too much Criminal Minds.

But I love it :D

Jay, I have to say, you have been watching way too much Criminal Minds.

But I love it :D

Only seen Seasons 1&2 and about eight eps of Season 3. So, not really all that much.

But yeah, Joey's partially inspired by Reid, and partly by Chaz from Shadow Unit (http://www.shadowunit.org) (which I need to get further into, I've only read up to the first part of the Season 1 finale).

Mytical
11-07-2011, 07:44 PM
Heh, that is ok..my character is based on Shawn Spencer from Psych (only actually psychic). :p

With as much as I have to do to catch up with homework, and my final project in Flash I might not be able to be on much in the next couple of weeks. I am sorry. So far behind that I will need a miracle to pull a B in my classes. *sighs*

dragon_wings
11-07-2011, 08:00 PM
My character's based on me. But a highly exaggerated version of me. :P I am a language fan and I am emphatic but not to the extent of my character. And I'd love to learn martial arts and how to handle a fire arm (especially since my bf would love to own a bunch of guns. :P).

KabeRinnaul
11-07-2011, 08:16 PM
With the exceptions of Browning and Winchester, who were just created on the spot, all my NPCs so far have been my old Shadowrun characters.

...yeah, I don't have any particular "this is my character basis" stories right now cause I'm running things.

Edit: And whoever Sarlon and Jay 2K are talking to. They're generic agents right now. But with only about 4-5000 people in the agency worldwide, they might get identities someday.

not on late tonight, or for the next few days....aparently in a fit of drunken tiredness I volunteered for 14 hours of overtime this week...starting tomorrow.

as for the insperation for my character....think Claudia Donovan from warehouse 13, mixed with Pete Lattimer from the same show. gut feelings mixed with above average intelligence.

and yes kabe her character lied about her age to those agents...she really is only 15

11-08-2011, 01:34 PM
I finally have a reliable net connection so here's my character (loosely based on my GBRPG character with a few changes). Nickname comes from my 'agent name' in class.

Name and Code Name: Terry (doesn't like her last name so rarely uses it)/Agent Ultraviolet

Place of origin: Santa Fe, NM

Background: Computer-science student with an interest in hacking. Planned to eventually work for one of the 'typical' federal alphabet agencies, but some undisclosed minor stuff in her past somehow prevented her from being hired. It isn't known if her self-identifying as a 'hacker' was part of that. Has experience with various paranormal investigation methods (and some 'unorthodox' weaponry, having worked closely with a certain group in the past). She has some of the plans for said weapons, but not all; they could be built, but it might or might not be easy.

Special powers: Ability to see (not perfect) into the invisible spectrum and a weird form of psychometry; sometimes she can 'shut it off', but if an item is in any way important to a present occurrence she can't. She can also communicate with wolves/werewolves (whether this means she is a werewolf herself, nobody knows).

Role: Field agent, but isn't averse to lab work.

Mytical

Kheldarson
11-08-2011, 03:56 PM
Kabe's at work right now, but if you want to ask questions or we get you in a room or something, that could work.

As soon as everybody's characters are committed (and I'll be honest, we're shortening my character's intro scene cuz he and I played it out earlier so he could start getting a feel for what he wants to do), he'll be getting into the actual plot.

A reference to Half-Life 2. Near the beginning of the game, Gordon Freeman is going to be teleported to the resistance's other base, and watches as his ally Alyx is sent ahead first. Dr. Kleiner and Barney Calhoun have a conversation while this is going on about an accident that happened during a previous test of the system, involving a cat. ("What cat?" Alyx asks, as she's standing in the teleporter.)

She goes through the teleporter successfully. When Gordon goes through shortly afterward, things predictably go wrong. (Mostly due to Kleiner's pet headcrab, Hedey Lamarr.)

But one of Barney's lines to Kleiner is "I still have nightmares about that cat."

We don't go there anymore.

Hoping i'm not too late to join in :) I've missed out on most of the other RP's around here.

If I am just ignore me :P

Name: James Doyle (The Ghost, Ghost, Doyle)
Place of Origin: Chicago, IL
Background: Small time street criminal, does his best to go unnoticed which is helped out by his abilities. Knows how to pick locks and defeat less complicated electronic security.

Can hot-wire most vehicles that can still be hot wired, jimmy locks and the like. Though he is not a trained investigator, he knows how to spot out of the ordinary details and has a sense for how to talk to people. This has helped him avoid being arrested several times.

He is proficient with small arms, but not an expert marksman by any means. Is a trained boxer, but never won any titles. AKA he can hold his own in a fist fight with other mortals, but a vampire or the like would be more than a match for him.

Abilities: Modified "Not my problem field." Unless he is overtly threatening someone they will forget having seen him as soon as they look away. This works on other senses as well. They will however remember speaking with him or asking him to do something. If seen frequently enough this effect wears off over time. IE the more time he spends with you the longer it takes you to forget him. This timer resets every time you see him. Starts at a few seconds and eventually gets to be as long as 48 hours.

"Cursed by Fate" James is at once supernaturally lucky and supernaturally unlucky. Every now and then everything just goes his way. Which makes him cringe, because he knows that shortly thereafter everything will go against him. Because of this he has days where he is a shut in.

Role: Recon, Investigation, Intelligence gathering

So, I was driving back from Philly from the Chikara wrestling show, and passed a few exits for Calverton, MD.

Most of the exits were blocked off.

oh god oh god hobgoblins are loose in Calverton

:ashamed::blink::runaway:

KabeRinnaul
11-14-2011, 05:20 AM
Oh calm down. The Hobgoblin attack was in Calverton, VA.

Calverton, MD, by an amazing coincidence, has been quarantined to track and neutralize the spread of the microbial EN known as "dread iota".

The spread is currently contained at EN-4, but will be escalated to an EN-6 if evidence is found of water source contamination. Highest priority will be given to preventing a northward spread toward Rocky Gorge Reservoir.

Bad day to live in places named "Calverton", apparently.

And sorry, first day off in a week so I slept through most of it and spent the rest generally screwing around.

But yeah, Fred's the first one to arrive to the meeting room, and has just been chatting with Winchester and Browning for a while. But thanks to you not being able to post for a bit, I was pretty much able to treat that as a fast-forward, so the next few are getting there just a few minutes after him.

Well, Sarlon's character was just delivered to the meeting room where Mytical's character has been hanging out, and you should be coming in right behind them, so you could just go ahead and have her check out some of the research department as she walks and get to the room, too.

Also yay we've been moved to Forum Games.

I should be able to post more frequently this coming week (been slammed with school and work).

Am I allowed to edit my IC posts this late in the game (keeping the endings the same)? In short, I came up with some better backstory. If not, that's cool and I'll work it in later.

I had forgotten about my character's psychometry, so will work in at least a hint of it. Other than that, just some more descriptive stuff (since I'm not 'multitasking' from class at least for now).

KabeRinnaul
11-20-2011, 05:00 AM
Woo, finally quit derping around on Fark and Minecraft and replied to the RP.

Now if I can just finish updating the Foundation Files and post those.

Edit: And now the latter is done. Still three more entries to write, but got some more in for now.

Do not let Fred hold back the rest of the group. Thanks to some rather useless people I am weeks behind on my actual classwork (been working on final project, but there is no penalty for turning in classwork late as long as I get it in by monday) I have about 4 weeks worth of material to catch up on. Yay me.

Works been insane, had a mental break down on sunday and monday.

I'm back to work now, but i don't have a solid day off between now and saturday.

and I'm kinda waiting on something to happen, shes not a very talkative person....and you don't want her bored.

KabeRinnaul
11-23-2011, 06:21 AM
Yeah. I'm going to post when I can, but I'm working long shifts at odd hours this week (including a 12-hour overnight), so no guarantees about when or how often.

dragon_wings
11-24-2011, 06:39 AM
Just thought I'd add this about Siobhan: as an empath she is a very open person. Being able to feel the emotions of the people around her does not allow her to hide her own emotions well. She's also almost completely honest, she has a hard time lying. But she keeps somethings to herself.

Oh and a description of her: average height, medium build, middle 20's, short hair dyed in crazy colors, green eyes, a warm friendly smile, wears contacts a majority of the time but can be seen wearing glasses on occasion, primarily wears jeans and t shirts with sayings (like 'duct tape is like the force. it has a light side, a dark side, and binds the world together'-saw a customer wearing that recently), has her ears pierced in several place, as well as her eyebrow, nose, and the center of her bottom lip, she has several tattoos-often in the languages she's fluent in.

Kheldarson
11-28-2011, 06:00 AM
Kabe's sick right now and work is guilt-tripping him into coming in since one of his co-workers is in the hospital. He'll make a post when he's better. And hopefully he won't give it to me >.<

KabeRinnaul
11-29-2011, 06:41 AM
Derp. Two days in a row where I've gone to work sick because I couldn't call in because we were shorthanded. Which turned into two days in a row of me running the department by myself while sick.

Mytical
12-13-2011, 08:43 PM
Going to leave it up to the GM if Fred remembers or not on this. Its a tricky thing, as Fred has a photographic memory, and not remembering something..anything would nag at him. If the memory is paranormal or not has not been established either. So I will abide by Kabe's decision :)

Sarlon

Fred was the first, and pretty much was in the center of the room. For those who can read emotions its a combination of curiosity, amusement, and a bit of confusion.

Loren got pushed into a chair. So wherever's not taken ^^

Sorry. I swear she'll calm down. Maybe.


BTW, Kabe got lucky with his schedule and I was able to beg for mine, so we're going to go see my folks this weekend. So we'll probably be offline.

Kind of ignored this one, but for the enhanced memory versus Chanlin's character, I'd say if the memory is true perfect recall (like Sarlon's character), it's likely supernatural and works to counteract, but not fully cancel it out. If it's fallible and is instead just very good but not perfect memory, then it's probably natural talent, and while the character may be aware that they're missing something, they won't necessarily know what it is.

And yeah, out of town the next three days, and going to bed right now. I'll reply to the RP in the morning.

As a fellow DM I can sympathize with not having ideas :P

I'd REALLY like to see something like the warehouse 2 episode... >.>

Jay 2K Winger

I, too, can sympathize with the whole "writer's block" thing. *looks at the myriad stories and ideas he's had and not finished*

But having more ideas is always good. I keep meaning to get into Warehouse 13, given how interesting I find that notion of "repository of mystical/supernatural/weird things." Like Area 51 in the Indiana Jones franchise. Or SCP Foundation.

KabeRinnaul
01-23-2012, 04:57 PM
Only watched the first two thus far, because we're also going through Trigun, which Kheldarson has never seen all the way through. And yeah, definitely saw similarities to SCP (though I think SCP would consider most of W13's inventory to be Safe or Euclid at best).

Sarlon

Hi. I'm the FNG Sarlon mentioned in Post #103.
Hello all.
Okay, about me...
I am a Functional Lunatic with a love affair with firearms and sharp, shiney, pointy objects. I enjoy computer games, Civil War re-enacting (Federal Signal Corps), D&D 3.5, comics, RP games, and paintball.
I have ideas for a character, but I REALLYREALLY would appreciate some feedback.
Okay... ALOT of feedback.

Happy to help provide feedback. :D

Tyg3rW01f

Name: Josiah "the Wolf" McCowan
Code Name: Mr. John W. Clark
Age: 30
Height: 5' 9"
Weight: 175 lbs of hard-earned muscle
Hair: Grey
Eyes: amber-gold, like a wolf's. His gaze is piercing and a bit unsettling.
Place of Origin: Ft. Sill, Oklahoma
Citizenship: United States of America
Place of Residency: Lochdubh, Scotland
Background: Born an ARMY-brat in Fort Sill, Oklahoma, to United States citizens, Josiah lived on military bases across the US and Europe. When he was 17, he got permission to enlist in the Marines, where he was recruited for the SEALs after a deployment to Afghanistan in the early days of the war. Soon, he was deployed with XXXXXXXXX and trained in XXXXXX, Great Britain, with the XXXXXXXXXXXXX, in conjunction with the XXXXXXXXXXXXXX.
A full 90% of Josiah's military record is Classified, and most of the black ink begins after his SEAL recruitment.
After 12 years in the U. S. armed forces, Josiah the Wolf retired to the Highlands of Scotland. He has since lived quietly in Lochdubh.

Josiah began seeing the Para-Normal at the tender age of six, when he visited the site of Geronimo's grave near Ft. Sill. Josiah's father retired in 1997, when Josiah was 15. The family began attending Civil War re-enactments; their visits to Anteitam, Fredricksburg, and Cold Harbor, however, where cut short when the adolescent Josiah passed out from Extra-Normal overload. He could never explain he had seen the ghosts of the fields embroiled in mortal combat, as if those battles had never ended.
It was his military training and time in Europe that finally gave him a measure of control over what he saw.

Powers: He can see Feylines, the "Power" of sacred places like mehnirs, Stonehenge, the Mayan temples, etc., be it residual, recent, or whatnot. In addition, he can see very strong magic in items, like voodoo hayacalls. NEVER misses a shot, and can perform this feat with any weapon -- however, he must see, touch, disassemble and reassemble said weapon, if applicable. Then there is the uber-sneak skill all SEALs posess. He has training in firearms, stealth, and Krav Maga.
Role: the back-up Agent

Tyg3rW01f
03-03-2012, 08:10 PM
there can be more, there can be less.
however, how he got his nickname is not something I know about him at the moment.
but he does see odd things... mostly the "power" of places like mehnirs and Stonehenge.

Derp.

Sorry about that. You've been witnesses to/victims of total GM burnout.

I eventually reach a point where I simply can't even think about my stories anymore. I can sit and stare at a screen for half an hour and manage to have a complete mind blank the entire time. That's pretty much what caused the sudden stop in posts - I make up so much as I go along, that when I hit writer's block, I have absolutely nothing to fall back on.

So anyway, I do apologize for the delay, and shall try to fix this. Assuming anyone is still here. Going to try and finally work out some plot points tonight, then reply to the RP in the morning.

Fred and co. are heading to the crime scene, Myt. They're actually going to the transport system currently, so you can write out how Fred responds to that.

KabeRinnaul
03-26-2012, 03:44 AM
Yep. Heading down the halls towards the transporter. They're heading through it to Division One (Washington), and from there to a small town in Virginia to see the crime scene.

Anyway. Sorry about that, work schedule and other activities haven't been kind to RP posts lately.

Just for fun, the latest addition to the Files. I need to complete a couple others before I update the actual page.
EN Classification :: "Faceless"
Threat: EN-2.
Summary: These ENs are humanoid entities which can't be identified by facial appearance. While evidence suggests the ENs possess normal facial features - they are able to see, hear, speak, and breathe normally - it is impossible for anyone to recognize them as having a face. It is instead a complete blind spot for any observers - completely unnoticed and unrecalled after breaking contact. Recordings of the ENs, whether they are photographic or video, retain this effect, with viewers simply not noticing the subject's face. Furthermore, these ENs show a disturbing capability for escaping notice just long enough to escape a confrontation - frequently faster than a human would have been able to move given the time it was unwatched.
Identification: Perceptives and non-perceptives alike are incapable of recognizing a face on this EN. The only advantage a perceptive has is that a perceptive recalls the absence, whereas a non-perceptive individual will continue without realizing anything was amiss, and frequently forgets ever meeting the EN.
Response Protocol: The EN should be kept under a close watch, preferably with multiple observers in rotation to avoid breaking contact. Agents should not engage unless the EN's activities appear to be putting human lives or Foundation secrets at risk. Any such contact should preferably be made by a senior agent with experience handling this EN, while others cover the contacting agent.

And random thoughts appear in the thread.

A special notice to all new agents.
Despite his claims, Mr. Black is none of the following:

Division Command.
A secret agent. FEND employment excluded.
Classified information.
Royalty or nobility of any existing location.
An EN-4.
A wizard.
The man behind the man.
A Quentin Tarantino character.
Immortal.
The Architect.
A quintuple agent.
Capable of performing any action solely due to being "cooler than you".
A compulsive liar. It's merely habitual.
Allergic to, or otherwise exempt from, research or field work.

Any such claims from Mr. Black are to be dismissed.


So, considering I love adding new content but am astonishingly lazy, if anyone would like to submit ideas for ENs or anomalous objects, feel free, particularly in the form of in-character reports. Also welcome are in-character commentaries on existing file entries. I'll add whichever ones amuse me the most.

(Edit) Oh, and so everyone can follow along with the current RP events, Solyn Kher is Kheldarson's major character in the original story this is an AU of.

Mine's been severe allergies (http://i539.photobucket.com/albums/ff355/kaberinnaul/allergies.jpg), holiday stuff, work, and my own short attention span.

Don't worry, I had to drop my writing/RP projects for a little while, so you're not far behind.

Also, a word to everyone - feel free to throw me a curveball or have your character do their own thing a bit. I tend to GM my best when I'm getting that sort of feedback from players, a trait I picked up years ago when running Shadowrun and D&D for my old group, walking avatars of chaos and destruction I semi-affectionately refer to as "Team 4chan".

You know your Shadowrun game has gone off the rails when the rigger tackles the decker to the floor and starts dry-humping him while shouting lines from Evangelion.

Both in and out of character.

Want to ask permission to semi borrow this idea for something I am working on. I like the idea of this roleplay, and am thinking of starting a similar themed one on this forum. Just still working on a title. It is inspired by a combination of lost girl, supernatural, and this rpg.

I was telling him about warehouse 2 and the others scattered around the world.

according to the show the warehouses were set up near the seat of power for its time (warehouse 2 in alexendria, warehouse 12 in london or england as implied by *spoiler*H.G. Wells*spoiler*, warehouse 13 in the USA)

Kheldarson
04-25-2012, 02:24 AM
I'd just request that you refrain from borrowing the Eternals and other major NPC's. They're kind of the main cast for a novel we're working on. This is just AU/extra character development while I'm working on some kinks.

Mytical
04-25-2012, 05:16 AM
No worries about that. Here is the complete premise, though I may work with Sarlon, let her take the lead..since I may not have internet for long.

If you have watched the show Supernatural .. you know about Hunters.. well..

All the creatures you've heard tell of that go bump in the night (and some that go bump in the day) are real. Unlike this group however, the characters do not 'see' them..they rely on what they know/have learned..etc. Some are actually good though, so even if you discover a creature..does not always mean you have to get rid of them. Worse..some are actually impossible to get rid of (at least permanently). That is beside the point. The characters were born 'hunters'..no special abilities or whatnot..just a lot of knowledge that the normal person does not have.

Recently, however, something has been hunting the hunters. Maybe several somethings have been hunting the hunters. After all, they are not popular in the monster circles. So the characters, the hunters, have to figure out what. Since their whole life has been learning to hunt/kill/etc creatures..they are very skilled..but they don't have normal 'jobs'. They do have cover identities (fake of course), and such, however.

If I do work with Sarlon (a good chance) there would probably be artifacts that needed to be retrieved also..making for a creature/artifact smackdown that would probably be pretty interesting.

BTW : I am borrowing the idea of the Fae from Lost Girl, the hunters from Supernatural, and it is sort of similar to this rpg (in a way) so that is how it all ties in together.

Not that Hunter was a good system....

Good idea, but horribly balanced.

KabeRinnaul
04-25-2012, 04:51 PM
Hunter was part of the inspiration for this RP, actually. I liked the concept but hated how underpowered and ineffective Hunters were. And the fact that the "warrior" type had better healing powers than the "healer" type, on the grounds that they "needed them to stay in the fight", but that's a different matter entirely. This was partially produced by trying to make Hunters effective by having them cooperate and actually know something about their foes.

Sarlon
04-25-2012, 04:52 PM
I can work with that I just wouldn't want to run a game like that.

No matter how hard Tygerwolf and Kheldarson try, Doctor Who and Torchwood aren't canon.

I think I found a better way to represent Doyle's accent in typed form that is far less offensive than the sort of stage Irish type accent he's been using. So no when he slips back to the accent, it hasn't changed, but the way I'm typing it has.

Torchwood should so be cannon :p

Sorry, we went on a trip to Boston and I didn't get around to announcing it beforehand.

I agree. I have no idea if Terry's 'other job' (Ghostbusters) could be considered canon, if not I'm sure I can come up with another way to justify her bizarre knowledge.

I don't think you'll get the full setup (the traps and containment tank, etc), but there are definitely spirit ENs, and Ghostbusters-style ghosts fit the setting just fine. Given that, using technology to detect, track, and drive away spirits would fit. It just probably wouldn't look too much like the movie. Reason being, I don't like to exclude any real things from my near-real-world settings, because it gets too easy to accidentally refer to things that didn't happen. And if the gear worked just like it did in the Dan Aykroyd movie, it would just be too strange to have pop culture get something like that exactly right.

if GHOSTBUSTERS is NOT cannon, then NONE of this whole RP makes any sense.

How is that?

Kabe, please auto Fred..for the partner he has currently (Jay I believe) I am sorry but as you know, going to be away for a bit. If Fred can not be auto'd..I can post a quick but powerful vision that puts him out of commission for a bit. (Ie puts him into a Coma before he can reveal the vision).

I have a few things in mind. I'll send you a PM, and do the post if you can reply to it. If not, I'll just include a brief auto post in with the rest of the update describing his collapse.

Yeah, while Terry does have direct access to all of the technical blueprints it might not be possible to replicate much more than the detection gear; in any event, experience could definitely be useful (feel free to take advantage of that as you see fit).

Maya may or may not be a spirit caught in a wolfdog's body due to a summoning that one of her team members screwed up (long story).

I've been posting some. I'm just trying to remember my plot ideas because contrary to Sarlon's comments in IC, I don't actually have any notes for this game. Well, I do, but they're just these (http://theuncertainareas.webs.com/rp/foundation.html). As far as plot goes, I more have a general idea and a few points I want to hit. Also, I'm getting full-time hours at work right now, so there's that. And been looking up some anime series I saw in AMV Hell 5. Current one is High School of the Dead. And also I'm lazy.

And for the record, Black is mistaken. The spider monster does not have tentacles. Instead, it has more spiders.

This is what happens when your GM style is "throw random character comments out there, then adjust reality to match."

Another big part of my GM style is "chaos is neat" but surely that has nothing to do with it.

Anyway, just on my lunch so I don't really have time for an IC post, but I should be active this evening. I think I've finally settled on what I'm doing with some things.

I tend to agree, but it does sometimes help to have a general plot in mind and gently guide things long that path. That's what I'm doing in my own game here on the boards. Speaking of which, I should go make another GM post there.

I know the feeling. I spend almost as much time world-building as I do writing my stories. From the fantasy story I started writing for NaNoWriMo a couple of years ago, to the sci-fi epic I've been steadily world-building for the last several years, and which I've almost finished the first installment...

I know the feeling.

Kabe and I tried to run something similar with friends. It was going to be a level 1 to 20+ game, but using all of the precon adventures. He's got a ton of them. But playing with two ADD friends who'd rather watch YouTube makes it difficult to get things done, doesn't it?

Mytical
06-02-2012, 04:28 AM
Ok..I have to ask. With Fred's perfect memory, the flashes...something supernatural that prevents him from recalling them completely, or given time for his mind to settle again, something he could recall?

KabeRinnaul
06-02-2012, 04:33 AM
I actually forgot he had prefect memory. We'll split the difference here. Given time, each individual flash will be recalled perfectly. However, it was simply physically impossible for him to take in everything, so he might be missing details. And it will be a while before he can sort out everything he saw.

Imagine being on the inside of a sphere, the walls covered in video screens, each showing different things. However, the sphere exists in five dimensions, so square the number of screens, and then square it again. You are somehow able to see all of them at once. That's simply beyond the level these characters work at. That's beyond the level The Doctor could work at.

Today's random FEND fact.

"The trasportation system was originally developed in the first decade of the 20th century. It's initial trial run was set for 7 PM, June 30th, 1908, with the goal of transport from a FEND laboratory in New York City, to a remote location in Siberia. The need for equivalent mass return was unknown at the time, and the resulting explosion became known as the Tunguska Event."

Quoth - A sphere of darkness engulfs a city. Strange, misshapen near-human creatures stumbling out of holes in space. A man sitting in shadows. Black and a dark-haired woman at a grave. Cassandra and the cowboy in what seems to be the Wild West. The cowboy and the dark-haired woman holding the shadowed man at gunpoint. A dark, featureless plain of swirling reddish-gray dust. A war that seems to involve the Foundation. Again the plain of gray dust, though now with a gradual awareness of some massive form in the sky above...

Meh Cthulu is a wimp. This is his older, bigger, stronger, and meaner brother.

The soundtrack for that plotline is probably going to wind up being The Dark And Endless Night (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tr89EG6cqPQ). Also the question of who's older depends on how old the Mythos creatures are, and at what point creatures have the capacity for emotion.

Mytical
06-03-2012, 03:25 PM
Hehe, I wasn't actually being serious. I honestly know very little about the elder god mythos (or great old ones, or outer gods or such), Cthulu, or its relatives. Use to know quite a bit about the norse, egyptian, greek/roman, and (very little) about some of the older Chinese legends..but almost nothing of Cthulu et al. :angel:

There is structure to an extent. In part it's not apparent because once you get past their "Super Secret Agent" image, the Foundation is actually a very chaotic organization. A great deal of that is due to Black's influence. Also they're just having trouble with containing the EN due to it's nature, as you'll see by the time I finish the post. But still, I forgot to introduce the guy who was going to be in charge last time, so we'll see what happens.

Besides, if you go too far, I can always just arrange for you to meet something appropriately horrible. I haven't used a Celestial yet, after all.

"Chaos is neat" is quickly becoming this whole game's slogan.

Also, I forgot in the last post: Today's random FEND fact.
"In 1935, a FEND operation destroyed Miskatonic University, a center of occult research and experimentation, as well as the town surrounding it. All records of the institution were destroyed as well, leaving only a handful of references in the works of horror author H.P. Lovecraft."

They really shouldn't have either. When the GM spent half the last session banging his head against a book, made it quite clear you'd done something extremely stupid, and then followed it up next session with the characters receiving a literal wake-up call in the form of sniper fire and neuro-stun grenades coming through the windows... It may behoove you to assume he's playing for keeps now.

I can honestly say though many players have died, there is only one time an entire group did..and that was in one of my fantasy settings. This group had played with me many many times..and knew that I treat dragons a bit differently then most. Dragons are at the top of the food chain for mortal creatures. It takes an entire army to take them down. So what does the group of 6 level 15 players do? Decide to raid a dragons horde. *facepalm*..at least the dragon ate well for a little.

KabeRinnaul
06-06-2012, 05:42 AM
They had a simple job. Actually, it would have been childishly simple if they'd stuck to their own plan. The job? Retrieve a copy of a certain document from a small branch office of Ares Macrotechnology (an arms and electronics manufacturer). The plan? The team arranges for an electrical malfunction, and then the gunbunny and hacker go in, claiming to be a repair crew, while the mage and heavy wait outside in the getaway car. They did well on the social roles, got inside, and took an elevator down. By this point, I was trying to stress that it was in their best interests to stick to the plan, pointing out the cameras watching them. The gunbunny even waved to one.

Everything went fine downstairs. The hacker got the information, and they were on their way back out. For some reason, the gunbunny had a sudden bout of paranoia. He carefully positioned himself out of the sight of the elevator camera, and upon getting off the elevator, held the hacker up in front of him to hide his own face from the camera - notably, the same one he'd waved to before. The front desk security, seeing this behavior, decided it was questionable enough to warrant investigation, and tried to stop them in the lobby.

The gunbunny panicked, called for an emergency rescue, and started shooting as the heavy and mage blasted their way in through the front door. After fighting about half the building's security, they didn't run until they heard the sirens approaching. They headed straight back to their safehouse and went to bed, planning on calling their contact to hand over the information and get paid the next day.

And of course, that morning began with sniper fire, gas grenades, and the gunbunny being blasted out of a window with a shotgun.

Also I promise the thing I just dropped in Doyle's lap probably isn't the stone from Haunter of the Dark (http://www.dagonbytes.com/thelibrary/lovecraft/thehaunterofthedark.htm).
