Re: OOC: Obligatory OOC Thread
Cool, so I'll just post the research results here and then I'll open up a new thread in the library for you guys to RP after concluding your research and Chiron can go meet with his guy, and take you guys along for the ride if he wants as well :)

Re: OOC: Obligatory OOC Thread
Just a heads up that April XP awards have been added to your sheets. As usual, if you want to spend some XP, feel free to PM me with what you intend to spend XP on and any appropriate IC justifications for the expenditure :)

Re: OOC: Obligatory OOC Thread
13:48, Today: Link rolled 4 successes using 9d10 with the World of Darkness nWoD system with a target of 8, rerolling 10s.  ward 7 dice + 2 HS.

That would be 1 hour of warding, not sure how many rolls I should make.

Good news: Slowly coming back to normal speed. Hopefully will be at normal speed by next week.

So you would be making an extended roll for this casting, so you can make a total number of rolls equal to your dice pool, including high speech. So it looks like a total of 9 rolls? As a reminder, I did implement the following house rule about successes on extended spellcasting rolls, so good to keep it in mind:

Cap on Successes on an Extended Casting
The total amount of successes you can distribute among spell factors on an extended casting is capped by and equal to your total dice pool for casting the spell--including things like high speech and other dice bonuses.

15:10, Today: Link rolled 3 successes using 9d10 with the World of Darkness nWoD system with a target of 8, rerolling 10s.  3rd hour.

15:10, Today: Link rolled 2 successes using 9d10 with the World of Darkness nWoD system with a target of 8, rerolling 10s.  2nd hour.

13:48, Today: Link rolled 4 successes using 9d10 with the World of Darkness nWoD system with a target of 8, rerolling 10s.  ward 7 dice + 2 HS.

So it would take her a total of three hours to maximally ward the place (9 successes?)

I'll try to writen ic post about it tonight or tomorrow morning.

Sounds good! And make sure to indicate how many of the 9 successes you are assigning to any relevant spell factors (e.g. duration, potency, area, etc.)

Re: OOC: Obligatory OOC Thread
Hey guys!

So as you all have probably noticed, Arwen's player has gone MIA for over a month now--last post was on 3/20 and last time online on 4/1. I've tried to reach out to them via PMs and rMail and have not gotten any response since my last interaction with them. I think its safe to assume that they will not be returning to the game. I hope they are doing okay IRL of course, but the game has to carry on.

Given the cabal's history and that the sanctum is literally the estate that used to belong to Arwen's late uncle, I've felt like that PC has become somewhat integral to some part of our story. So, rather than just inviting someone to come in and make an entirely new PC, I've found a player that is willing to take on the mantle and adopt Arwen as their PC.

This new player will be joining soon, but I wanted to give you all a heads up so you are aware of the change. If you've got any questions or concerns, feel free to voice them here or send me a PM if you are more comfortable doing it that way.

Thanks :)

@Acciaio, @Chiron, @Mamanu

It looks like we can wrap up the current scene with Aeon. Mamanu is gonna end up spending like 4 hours there learning the rotes from that grimoire. So he'll be done with that by the early evening of the same day (probably around 8ish PM).

After that, am I to assume correctly that the three of you will return to the crime scene to investigate further? It looks like those are the next steps, but just double checking before I close current scene and open up a new one.

@Chiron, @Mamanu

I'll post to respond to Acciaio's investigative actions, but do want to give the both of you a chance to post first as you arrive on scene and let me know if there's anything the two of you are doing while Acciaio looks around, since that will take him a bit of time anyway.

@Acciao, @Mamanu -- giving Chiron a chance to respond, since I gave each of you a bit of info to react to in the scene. If he doesn't get a chance to reply by this evening, I'll continue to move the scene forward and he can catch up once he's back :)

Just FYI -- since today is last day of May, I've gone ahead and added the May XP rewards to everyone's sheet. As usual, if you want to spend some XP, do let me know via a PM :)

Re: OOC: Obligatory OOC Thread
In case anyone's waiting on me to post, I'm actually waiting on Chiron to respond since right now it looks like there's 2 leads for the group to potentially go after. I don't have anything to add since y'all just need to RP that out and figure out what your next steps are :)

Re: OOC: Obligatory OOC Thread
@Chiron -- yes, I do need you to roll. The spell gives you no control or sway over the spirit, it just calls it to you. So if you are trying to convince the spirit to give info or do something else other than what it wants to do--which at the moment is being left alone to feed in peace--you will need to make a contested/resisted roll against it. So you can either do a Presence + Persuasion roll or a Presence + Intimidation, depending on how Chiron is approaching the situation and what sort of tone they are using with the spirit.

Please do edit your post accordingly to reflect this and the dice roll. I will reply accordingly!

Also, did you leave out Acciaio of the casting on purpose??? Just checking in case that was an honest mistake or do on purpose IC. If it was done on purpose, no worries, but just wanted to make sure you as a player understood that Acciaio also has no way of communicating or hearing the spirit, and can only see a hazy outline of it in Twilight. If it was an honest mistake, feel free to edit the post to reflect that as well.

Thanks!

Was under the impression that Acciaio could see.  Don't know if the spell roll is sufficient to cover him as well.  If not, I can attempt another cast.

No need. If you meant to include him, itís all good. You can just edit your post and add the social roll for the spirit.

I was waiting on Chiron to see whether he was going to try anything else with the spirit or not.

@Chiron -- you still with us?

Gang - so sorry, life got really interesting for a bit there, and I kind of checked out.  Should have written to give a heads up, but didn't - just didn't have the juice.  I'm going to have to drop - it's not the game at all, I've enjoyed it immensely, and appreciate the opportunity to try these rules.  I'm just really over-extended right now, and don't have the bandwith for online RP.  Please accept my apologies for any inconvenience.

Re: OOC: Obligatory OOC Thread
It does suck. Right now we only have 2 players remaining that are currently active, so it does complicate things a decent bit. I don't necessarily want to shut down the game, but I think I may need to pause things for right now and reconsider how to best move forward.

Once Link is able to come back, and Arwen's new player is settled in (they recently moved IRL and started a new job) and able to play again, I think it would make sense to pick things back up and try to recruit someone new to take over Chiron.
