Hi Space Players!
As most of us are aware, Christmas falls rather close to our game this year. Please fill out this survey and we’ll see about keeping our regular game date or moving it, based on who is available.
Please submit your responses by noon on December 8th so that we can let everyone know the plan during the Domain Meeting on Saturday.
Thank you!

November Featured Game of the Month: Sunday 11/11

Vampire the Masquerade: Sabbat

Event Teaser

For centuries Wadim Bishop of Faith, one of the triumvirate who oversaw the Diocese of Essex, ruled from his seat of power in Ipswich. In the fetid swamps of his domain he worked ancient Thaumaturges bargaining with the spirits that called the land home. Wadim disappeared alongside his fellow Bishop Neron during the siege of Boston and now Wadim’s wards and pacts go unattended.

In recent nights strange creatures have been seen wandering the wild places of the diocese. Lumbering mounds of rot, dancing lights, and wailing spirits of the dead are all seemingly drawn to the swamps of Ipswich. The activities of the foul constructs prove too great of a threat to the Diocese risking to damage the fragile stability the Sword has constructed in Essex.

Archbishop Olek Dziedzic has called together all willing members of the sword to offer council and strength of arms in dealing with these abominations. You are summoned to gather at St. Mary the Assumption Parish under the security of Bishop Tristan Morgan. Together the Sword of Caine shall confront these threats and spread the glory of the dark father. Praise Caine!

Werewolf The Apocalypse.

Event Teaser

The Sept of the Eastern Skies has long fought to keep what they claim, routing enemy after enemy. Now the enemy brings new weapons to the table, bringing the very land itself to rumbling and screaming agony. The city flees from Boston Commons as the supernatural hides itself no more. The spirits cry out for help before the heart of the city is destroyed.

This will be a relatively concise meeting to put out our domain level project and objectives and get connected to people interested in participating helping out with these efforts.

Core Topics.
* Outreach and Recruitment
* New player engagement and support.
* Social Media, Web, and Wiki presence and support.
* Domain Policy Development (OK Checkin, Bleed, Emotional Intelligence.
* NWoD Events, interest development and OWoD / NWoD “cross pollination”

If time allows.
* Social Events (especially Non-Game Day)
* Lighting, Sounds and Props.
* Staff and Player Resource development.
* How to get and how to fixing your Prestige.

Going forward I plan to run “office hours” between our two OWoD game to offer player and story support.

I look forward to seeing you all.
