Shattered Antiquities is a domain of the Mind’s Eye Society, which is an international gaming organization dedicated to the enjoyment of White Wolf’s World of Darkness. We support a global Mind’s Eye Theatre live-action roleplaying game as well as social events, community service, and education.
The MES is one of the world’s largest live-action roleplaying groups, with thousands of members across six continents. Our members create characters using the By Night Studios and Chronicles of Darkenss books and play those characters in locally hosted games. Many members also travel to games and events hosted by our hundreds of individual domains and chapters, use some of the numerous “in character” e-mail lists and even attend larger events at the regional, national and international level!
The focus of the MES games are on the dramatic politics in the World of Darkness and the tragic struggles of the spirit; it is not only the violent aspects commonly associated with the fictional creatures that intrigue us. While the MES’s live-action games are its most visible product, the MES is also a social organization with a special commitment to the arts, education, and service.
The MES also sponsors many charity events to benefit good causes across the globe. Many of our chapters support a local charity such as a food bank or shelter, thus strengthening the community where they live. Some people ask why service work is so important in an organization such as ours. Quite simply, it builds our sense of community. When our members give something back to their communities-by getting together with their fellow members to do a good deed-it builds friendships and a sense of connection between members.
Our focus on arts, education, and service contributes to the culture that the MES attempts to build between members worldwide. As a community of friends, we encourage members to be respectful of others, to participate responsibly and safely at all events, and to support each other as we grow together and explore our creative interests.
