Totally. I was just responding to the fiction as it occurred.

And, a little peek behind the curtain, he was upset about his sister behaving unsafely, not trying to stifle her morality.

Re: The New Night (OoC)
I'm waiting for Amanita and Jake.
The other players from the crime scene are not active anymore, right? :(

Re: The New Night (OoC)
We have had some attrition.

Let's have a story-beat where everyone reconnects via text-message and shares their current plans.

There is the text channel where I have posted a message and there are no news in there.

Re: The New Night (OoC)
I'm still here. Neither myself nor Amanita are particularly well-suited to solving mysteries, so I guess the next move is going to see the mother?

Re: The New Night (OoC)
Jake, Amanita, I feel like I'm taking over the scene, and this is not my intention. Would you be kind to start the dialogue first? I would like your characters to shine as well.

Re: The New Night (OoC)
It seems like there's nothing more to do at Heelena's place. I guess we have the address of Alondra's current apartment, from Tolbert. If anybody has any other ideas instead of going there, let me know.


quote:
Tolbert meets all of you face-to-face at the intersection of two side streets. [...]
"The victim's name was Alondra Barber. She was a twenty eight-year-old female, Black, casually employed at a dry-cleaner, and lived two streets from here.

Re: The New Night (OoC)
If there's nothing else of interest or no other ideas, I think we can skip directly to Alondra's apartment.
Amanita, Jake?

Re: The New Night (OoC)
Lilith was asking about smell & vampire senses, which brings up a point that I wanted to address.

Each of you is playing a different representative of the shadows. Unlike in games where the lore is firmly established, Urban Shadows allows the players to contribute to the boundaries of your archetype's abilities. Lilith has established that vampires can go out into daylight as long as not too much sun hits their skin.

Now she is asking if vampires have advanced senses. The source materials are conflicted, so we can create our own reality. I suggest this: Vampires can have very powerful senses related to hunting healthy humans. Perhaps they can smell blood or hear heartbeats. Obviously the greater corruption, the more powerful their alien senses become.

Re: The New Night (OoC)
Then Lilith would try to smell/hear if there is anyone in the apartment. Do I roll let it out or is not needed?

Re: The New Night (OoC)
I'm going to get it, but I don't know if I need to insist on changing this game over.

You guys need to make a roll something to enter the door. It could be manipulating someone, to demand that the building superintendent open the door? Or it could be some sort of Let It Out roll to open it up.

Currently, you can tell that no one is making a lot of noise in the room.

Re: The New Night (OoC)
Okay, so Amanita's player has decided they can't play with us any further.

Can everyone who IS still playing sound off, please? I know we still have Jake and Lilith.

Re: The New Night (OoC)
OK, so do you want to just a favour to your new hacker friend? That's fine. So, is there anything else you want to do while your waiting for that information to be returned to you?
