Hey everybody!

Your tainted bounty hunter here!

I assume we are gonna do debt swaps, or should I keep the ones I got before and assume those former players are NPCs?

Hi! I'm Lilith, the Vamp.

I'm willing to trade debts as well: the second one from my character sheet - it already has some text, but i think it was some left-over text from a copy-paste.

Hello hello!

I'll be your friendly neighbourhood Spirit of Fire and Vengeance!

I'm super excited to finally play a Revenant. I've been wanting to for ages and ages.

EDIT: this is what my Debts look like.

1. Someone mourned your death, truly and deeply. You owe them a Debt.
2. Someone tried to get justice for your murder, but failed to lay your soul to rest. They owe you a Debt.
3. Someone has already come to rely on you and your powers. Ask them what unique need you fill. They owe you two Debts.

Just realised you cannot see my character details. Here, my debts:
1) Someone makes sure you get fed regularly. You owe them 2 Debts.
2) Someone relies on you for their fix. They owe you a Debt.

3) Someone bears responsibility for you becoming a vampire. They owe you a Debt.
My father? Or should we change the debt? (questions for MC)



I could take one or these both from Amanita:
1. Someone mourned your death, truly and deeply. You owe them a Debt.
2. Someone tried to get justice for your murder, but failed to lay your soul to rest. They owe you a Debt.

The first one would be interesting, as it implies either a personal relationship or that Lilith was all wrapped up in the crime family that killed her family.

If we went with a personal relationship, perhaps something Amanita did as a mortal caused Lilith to become a Vampire?

In reply to Amanita Jezra (msg # 6):

I have added the Vamp's questions in my description. I was born a vamp and I don't not really hate it.
I don't know Amanita's history, but we can go with any of the options. Which one you like/fits better (friends or death by accident/casualties/had to do it)?

BTW. Are there formatting rules for the IC channel? (MC?)

Here is my debt layout:

Debts
-You’re protecting someone from a dark power. They owe you 2 debts.



-Someone is trying to save you and keeps suffering for it.

You owe them 2 Debts.


Amanita, I was thinking about this one for you and me.

quote:
2. Someone tried to get justice for your murder, but failed to lay your soul to rest. They owe you a Debt.


As Jake became tainted after something awful happened to him when he was human, he made the deal for vengence he has yet to gain. As he does not want to see other people wind up like him, even if demonic patrons are not involved in your case, he may have tired to put you to rest. In fact, if Jake killed the person who killed you-it ended up causing you to be trapped as a restless spirit because Jake screwed up. You came back to get your vengence, but now you cant...

Lilith, as Jake is involved with a lot of supernatural goings on, he might have hooked you up with some willing blood dolls. He knows a guy who knows a guy...

Hello All,

You want to know your fate?.... Umm... you will realize the power of friendship, or whatever. *backs quickly away*

My Debts are:

Someone helps you understand your dreams and visions - You owe them 2 debts.

You've had a dire prophecy about someone, but you down know how to help them...yet - You owe them a debt.

You are helping someone realize their true potential through your visions. They owe you a Debt.

In reply to Carmen Martinez (msg # 9):

Carmen might have had a dire prophecy about Jake...before he made a deal with his demonic patron. Maybe you tired to warn him, but he did not belive in the supernatural back then.

Conversely, you could be trying to figure a way to get Jake redeemed somehow. Of course, he's not very helpful  on that matter.

I think that's all of our new people. I'm glad everybody's getting along so well. I'm also going to create threads for each faction. Mortality, power, night, and Wild so that you can hopefully divided up these conversations a little bit more. Otherwise, a single out-of-character thread tends to get hard to follow.

Hello, this is Samael Thornglade, your friendly (and compleeeetely turstworthy) Fae eye-candy reporting for duty. I have the following debt-lines to decide:

quote:
•Someone broke an important promise to you and swore they
would make it up to you. They owe you 2 Debts.
• You are keeping something hidden for someone. They owe you
a Debt.
• You entrusted someone with a dangerous task. Ask them if they
succeeded or failed. If they succeeded, you owe them a Debt. If
they failed, they owe you 2 Debts.


Is someone specifically interested in some of these? I am open to any faction/playbook connections, but would prefer PCs as it ties the protagonists in a tighter knot =D.

Wow! That sounds terrific! Also it seems that Carmen has some serious ink on her. Samael has a sleeve worth of roses and vines too. I was thinking of making Samael a tattoo artist (and perhaps an escort too). Perhaps Samael has made some of the art on Carmen?

Hi, everyone. Jessica The Hunter here. Here are my 3 debts:

» Someone has enlisted you to protect them from something very
dangerous. They owe you a Debt.

» Someone keeps you equipped and supplied. You owe them 2 Debts.

» You consider someone a friend even though the friendship keeps
bringing you trouble. They owe you a Debt.

For the first one I'm thinking one of the less combat oriented archetypes would be a good fit. So perhaps The Aware, or The Oracle? For the other debts, I'm open to whoever volunteers.

In reply to Carmen Martinez (msg # 9):

It has a lot of room for improvisation. Lilith has a Seductive demeanor and is looking for someone to kill (revenge, as her father wishes).


In reply to Samael (msg # 15):

» You are keeping something hidden for someone. They owe you a Debt.
Lilith needs a specific dagger to kill someone. Samael was able to find it and he keeps it hidden for now.


In reply to Jessica Addams (msg # 18):
Considering your description, I'm not sure if you want Lilith to be involved in your debts. But if you would like to:
» Someone keeps you equipped and supplied. You owe them 2 Debts.
Lilith knows what revenge is. Blood for blood. She's a Private Detective and has some access to police resources (guns, confiscated things, you name it).

» You consider someone a friend even though the friendship keeps bringing you trouble. They owe you a Debt.
A friendship between a Hunter and a Vamp? Considering your past, it sounds like a good fairy tale :)) But why not?

Maybe Lilith keeps Jessica well equipped, and supplied? Jessica could see it as a necessary evil. She spares one vamp, but in doing so she can hunt other more dangerous monsters.

In reply to Jessica Addams (msg # 18):

Samael is not a very good fighter, so I might be interested in some protection. Though I do not have a clear idea YET who/whta might be the dangerous party.

Unless someone has a good idea that would fit, then I will gladly concede.

This sounds perfect. Samael has a nice and slightly enchanted garden where all kinds of things might go missing... like they were in the Faerie itself =D.

Collecting things together from Samael's point of view:

@Carmen Martinez: I help you interpret your visions. I write down 2 debts you owe me.

@Jessica Adams: I have enlisted your protection, danger pending =D. Owe you 1 debt.

@Lilith Voss: I have your dagger. You owe me 1.

I still have to offer these two:

quote:
•Someone broke an important promise to you and swore they
would make it up to you. They owe you 2 Debts.

• You entrusted someone with a dangerous task. Ask them if they
succeeded or failed. If they succeeded, you owe them a Debt. If
they failed, they owe you 2 Debts.


Jake or Amanita, want to get to know a Fae? I assume that Danielle and Grecia are not PCs anymore?

EDIT: Carmen, the intro questions ask me about who is my closest confidante in the city. Thinking about the relationship between them, Carmen might fit the bill. What do you think?

Maybe someone from the 'old country' came looking for you to bring you back to your fae king/queen? Ether Jake could have been asked to deal with that person, and killed them, which kept you here on earth, or he failed to kill them but it kept you off thier radar for now.

Jessica, this is a possiblity:

-You’re protecting someone from a dark power. They owe you 2 debts.

What might have happen is that another demonic patron may have targeted you for death. My patron wanted you to stay alive as it weakened him  to keep you around. While you may not like it, Having Jake pitch in was useful.
