Charity Drive – Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital

During our March games the Domain of Shattered Antiquities will be hosting a charity drive for Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital in Portland Maine. This drive was suggested and is being organized by Miranda Chadbourne.

Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital is a leading pediatric hospital north of Boston. Their Children’s Life Department organizes a “Take it and Read it Library,” a collection of books for children of all ages to choose a book to read during their hospital stay. These books stay with the child, and are not returned. These books are small gifts to all sick children and their siblings a way to get away from what’s troubling them.

We are asking for donations of NEW books. All books should be appropriate for readers between the ages of newborns to young adults.

In lieu of books, any cash donations can also be given during game time. The cash will be used to purchase other books, or small toys such as coloring books or crayons to give with the donation.

Books will be collected by Miranda during Apoc and Masq on March 9th, and by Laura or an ADC during Sabbat and Space. Prestige will be given for donations. As per the guidelines in the Membership Handbook, for each $2 worth of items or money donated to a local sanctioned philanthropy, 1 general prestige point is awarded.

If you have any further questions please feel free to the DC at nhma.dc@gmail.com.

Apocalypse Game Note-

This Book Drive has been sponsored by the players from “Teeth Around Your Neck” Apoc Pack, who will be hosting a baby shower for Amy Hofman. Should any player wish to have their character give a book for an in game baby shower, but is unable to donate to the book drive, index cards will be provided for the character to write which books would have been given.

Alternatively if players are interested in donating more than one book we will set up a table with up for grabs books to be given at the baby shower.

Shattered Antiquities at Arisia

The Boston domain will be running three recruitment games at the Arisia convention, January 18-20, Werewolf: The Apocalpyse, Vampire: The Masquerade, and Space: The Infinite Edge. The schedule and teasers are below. We hope to see you there!

Werewolf the Apocalypse

White Hill (4th), Saturday 7:30pm – 11:30pm

One of the few left, you have reached out to anyone who could hear you. From wherever you come from, you arrive here, the Sept of the Last Hope, Gaia’s last shred of existence on this decaying ball of dirt. You’re not alone, others have heard your call and joined you. The warder has made accommodations for the handful left. Now is the time to gather your allies, resources, and wits before you make the final push. You’ll need to strike deep at the heart of the Wyrm before hope is lost. 18+ only.

This game is outside of the regular chronicle, and will use a light version of the mechanics.

Space Infinite Edge

White Hill (4th), Sunday 1pm – 5pm

500 years ago one of the largest interstellar cruise lines left the Core to take the nobility on a cruise they would never forget. They succeeded, after a fashion; they received a signal from within the event horizon of a black hole. Investigating the signal brought the ship into contact with a powerful entity, which quickly possessed the ship. This mythos entity now feeds upon the souls of those who come on board. It loves Humanity. It always has, and it always will. 18+ only.

This game is run in chronicle, and characters played will earn standard and event XP.

Vampire The Masquerade

White Hill (4th), 7pm – 11pm

Boston Minds Eye Society. Gehenna was a lie. For centuries the forces of the Camarilla and the Sabbat waged a bitter war over the fate of vampire kind. After the dust settled and Caine did not return, the two factions are left to forge an uneasy truce. You take on the role of one of the ambassadors from the two factions meeting to craft the treaty in favor of your people. Can you secure the future of your faction or will your rivals claim dominance? 18+ only.

This game is outside of the regular chronicle, and will use a light version of the mechanics.

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!
