A sad day for D&D geeks everywhere.... [Mar. 4th, 2008|02:09 pm]
Blood And Darkness ~ An Algonquin, IL Live Action

I am interrupting the flow of things to announce that Gary Gygax, co-creator of the Dungeons and Dragons game, has passed on. He was a cool guy, with a dream of bringing people together to play games. I remember when I first met him. I was about 10 years old when my father introduced me to him. I defended him when my friends back-talked him and how he just soaked up lots of money from pimple-faced kids. He was a good guy and an even better DM. He led thousands of people to the world of fantasy and hopefully in the afterlife he is meeting with J.R.R. Tolkien and many others who introduced fantasy to the populace. My father knew him as a friend, so  say a prayer for the man whom we knew so well. Perhaps this is a bad omen for D&D 4.0.

Gary Gygax, you will be missed.

Update [Feb. 8th, 2005|05:23 pm]
Blood And Darkness ~ An Algonquin, IL Live Action

silverdust_wolf
The Victorian Age Vampire LARP has ended, and I have weeded out the ones who really did not "stick" about. I have had a request from a previous player to run a Dark Ages LARP. I will be announcing it to four particular players who are still interested in playing a Vampire LARP. Why am I going Dark Ages? Because one of the four people requested as such. On thursday (I hope) I will be hosting a discussion group, and possibly a character creation process. I want to know what these players think, and what they want in the next LARP. I will have a rule about recruiting new players as well. If someone wishes to bring a "new" player into the game, they have to tell me about it atleast a week in advance. This new player has to set up a meeting with me during the week and before game starts. The new player who comes in will have to be a childer of the person who brought in the new player. I hope this system will work, it is better like this than to go out and find players. This way players can pick people they trust. As it is my judgement is not all that great.

Underway..and WOW a POST!! [Sep. 14th, 2004|12:25 pm]
Blood And Darkness ~ An Algonquin, IL Live Action

Game will be at my house (Betsy's) this week. As far as in game things are concerned. I am officially full, no more new players. Reached the max of players countage. ST's need to meet at my house at 5 instead of 5:30. We have things that need to be discusssed.

In game happenings:
Another death has occurred on the north end of London. The woman had her tongue, her lung, and her heart taken out. The Vampire chronical is still a mystery as to who is the actual writer. So far we know that it came from the desert sands, which could be dangerous...The malkavian Prophect has been believed to have breached the masquerade by presenting this to the London Cam. Also a ghoul from the Arcanum was found and questioned, clearly his memory was wiped out before the Cam ever got to him.

Out of Game happenings:
Two, possibly three new players. New rule of game, no one goes outside alone, no ifs, ands, or buts. My house this week, and an ST meeting before people start showing up.

Till next we meet

Why no Tremere? [Jul. 12th, 2004|07:55 pm]

The Tremere have all fled to Venice, Italy to re-group themselves, and consolodate their losses. They have better things to do other than hunt down what the camirilla BELIEVES to be a mortal killer.

Characters [Jul. 12th, 2004|07:54 pm]
Blood And Darkness ~ An Algonquin, IL Live Action

silverdust_wolf
Alright I only have 12 places to be filled, 3 weeks till game start, and hopefully several ST meetings. I thought I would list the character "ideas" Not concepts...but ideas to those who are interested in the game. A wonderful note of importance...NO TREMERE I place my foot down on this.

The list of charries:

Toreador:Primageon
Toreador:Photographer
Toreador:

Malkavian:Primageon
Malkavian:Suck-up(sire's favorite)
Malkavian:Prophet
Malkavian:Secretary/investigator

Nosferatu:Lingistic, out of towner
Nosferatu:Underground knowledge

Gangrel:Police connected
Gangrel:Werewolf connected

Ventrue:

These are the character "ideas" I came up with. Yes some are blank, but those are the ones I had no idea where to place. Here's the intro again, with a few added things.

The Basic Story is focused around Jack The Ripper, a deadly man in the Victorian Age. The Prince has disappeared without a trace, and it is up to the players to investigate what happened to her. The city fears that Jack The Ripper has her in his grasp. Can you find him before the Sabbat do? Can you solve the mystery of the Ripper?

Starting a LARP! [Jul. 3rd, 2004|03:41 am]
Blood And Darkness ~ An Algonquin, IL Live Action

beautifuldorian
This is Jingle Hopper here, making our LARP's first entry for our storyteller, Bootz. Bootz runs this gig; Jingles is just the narrator who likes to make websites and LJs. Our other lovely narrator is the Crimson Jester; together, the three of us have plenty of madness for a nice LARP... which is why we're running one.

This LARP is being held in Algonquin, Illinois. It's a Vampire: the Masquerade game, Mind's Eye Theatre, set in Victorian London. We're currently trying to recruit people to play in this game, so if you're interested, please, either post a comment here, or drop us a line at algonquinlarp@yahoo.com.

If you have any questions, or would like more info on the game, or even just have snazzy ideas for ways to make the poor Toreador Primogen look bad, leave us a comment. ^_^


Added Quote from Storyteller:

Yes I am The Head Storyteller Bootz. The Basic Story is focused around Jack The Ripper, a deadly man in the Victorian Age. The Prince has disappeared without a trace, and it is up to the players to investigate what happened to her. The city fears that Jack The Ripper has her in his grasp. Can you solve the mystery? Experienced Players please, if you have played the game, but forgotten a few things, we are willingy to re-teach the things you have forgotten. People who are underage MUST have a parental approval. See Below

I (parent signature) allow my son/daughter to take part in this freelance acting group.

Make sure to include the FREELANCE ACTING GROUP. It is very vital. (anything else I missed narrators..please include it...'cause I feel like I missed something in there) {Jingles: Yes, we're our own Player's Company, and, as Crimson Jester mentioned, such things look great on applications...)

Costumes are not a must, if you wish to show up in costume, then you may. Notebooks are advised, but also, NOT a must. (to write down notes and things that happen in game.)
If I missed anything else my dear dear Narrators, please include it. If Players have any further questions feel free to e-mail us. We want to make this game fun and interesting. It is Victorian Age, Vampire The Masquerade, Mind's Eye Theatre. Run by Dusty Productions.
