Hey, all. Sorry for the interruption, but I've got something that may be of interest to those of you who play World of Warcraft. I'm setting up guilds specifically for White Wolf fans. The emphasis will be on roleplaying. And what makes our guild different is that, through use of the MyQuests AddOn, I'll be setting up actual quests you can go on and complete for actual tangible rewards: money, equipment, promotion within the guild. The quests will be largely tongue-in-cheek White Wolf references, but firmly set in the WoW universe.
If you're interested, the guilds are Lupus Albus for the Alliance and Salmu Kalb for the Horde. The website is wow.wolf-spoor.org.
The Trinity Storytellers Handbook is taking a long time to finish. Far longer than I thought.
So rather than keep everyone in suspense indefinitely, I'm just going to release the parts as they're finished. Hopefully this should keep some of you interested, and maybe encourage faster completion of yet-unfinished chapters. ;)
Keep in mind that content may change as chapters are released. See the Downloads section for the files, and discuss everything in our forums.
In case any of you are curious, this summer I am going to expirement with a Trinity LARP using an amalgamation of the new MET and the old Storyteller version of the game. One rule is vital to what I am doing: all things must be as simple as possible, even at the cost of realism. I hope to have some real info posted in the next few days, so anyone that wants to advise or lurk, join the community. http://www.livejournal.com/userinfo.bml?user=odd_trinity
(xposted from my own journal; edited 9:11 PM to correct mood icon and finish final question)
camwyn quoted her answer to lots42's question "What would your favorite fandom be like if it took place a hundred years earlier?" In the same spirit, I'll quote mine:
As I noted on camwyn's journal, one of the people working with me on the Trinity Storytellers Handbook is writing the alternate settings chapter, one of which involves Trinity's psions appearing in the early 21st century (instead of the early 22nd) in place of Aberrant's novas. You'll get the details if we ever accidentally get our shit together and finish the book.
If the Nova Age had happened from 1898 to the mid-20th century, things would have been sufficiently different to deserve an entire post. If the Hammersmith Incident (from Adventure!) had happened in 1822, the Inspiration Age would probably have looked downright Gothic (if not actually Gothic-[Steam]Punk).
But, again as I asked J., does it have to be a whole century? I've long thought that the Trinity Universe might have been an interesting place if the Inspiration Age, instead of ending in the forties/fifties and taking most Inspiration with it, had segued into a Stalwart Golden Age which became a Nova Silver Age. Alas, that wasn't what Andrew Bates and company had in mind.
Comments, anyone? Particularly on the early Nova Age?
