I've been thinking about LJ games

...and I think I'm going to go with Werewolf: The Apocalypse, because I've actually got ideas for it (which is more than I can say for Dark Ages: Fae. It's a great game, but that alone won't make up for my utter dearth of ideas for it).

I probably won't start the new Werewolf game until September, but I'll be working up rules and character submission guidelines in the meantime. Those of you interested in playing can point your browsers to emshadows_ooc, the OOC Community for this game; I'll be posting rules and updates on the game there in the coming weeks.


Players should be Cliath (Rank 1) Garou from the continental U.S., Canada, or Europe. I might be convinced to take a (very) small number of non-Asian non-Garou Fera PCs with appropriately engaging background stories. Given the bad blood between the Garou and the other Bête, though (hmmm, something about the "War of Rage..."), I'd like to keep non-Garou PCs to a bare minimum.

The players will begin the game at the Caern of the Windriders in Rock Creek Park in Washington, D.C. From there, they will travel to the Court of the Three Treasures near Kyoto, Japan. The PCs' mundane "cover" will be as students studying abroad, so please keep that in mind as you create your character.

The characters will be attending the (fictional) Miyagawa School, a private, coeducational facility with classes from kindergarten through college, which is administered by the Court, and thus has numerous Fera and Kinfolk among both the staff and student body.

A caveat: This will NOT be a combat-heavy game. Characters created solely for combat will be at a disadvantage here. If you're looking for a game that's little more than a linked series of brawls, this is not the game for you.

More to come...

This may be fortuneate. We were in need of cash so I put my Werewolf books on the eBay, but there were no takers.

Ooh, shiny! I've been wanting to play Werewolf for a long time. Please keep me posted on the game. Meanwhile, I'll borrow the Werewolf books from The Game Loft and start thinking of a character concept.

The Werewolf: The Apocalypse Revised Edition rulebook would be a must-read (though the Second Edition one would do if you couldn't find Revised. Some of the rules were changed from 2nd to Revised, though).

Other than that, most of the other supplements are just icing on the cake. Merits & Flaws can be found in the Player's Guide to the Garou. Player's Guide to the Changing Breeds and the appropriate Changing Breed book would be good to look at if you wanted to play a non-Garou shapeshifter (one of the "Fera").

It figures. I start reading a WtA novel, and get hypped up for that setting, and then I read this. :D

I will, however, admit that I'm a bit disappointed at the lack of DAF, but my book hasn't come in yet (stupid computer/amazon/me), so it's all good. I'll resist the urge to submit a wolf-aspected pooka character. ;)

So, are the characters supposed to be lost cubs? Or can they have any background?

The characters can have any background. They'll be starting out at Rank 1, which means they'll have been through the Rite of Passage (as opposed to Lost Cubs, who'd start out as Rank 0, and not have gone through the Rite).

Does that help?

mmmmm...
Midori,

Could I play that non-wolf were I was dreaming up and told you about at the con? I know you want to keep the non-wolves to a min. but she is the character that refuses to get out of my head.

PS. how are you guys and the kits?

Re: mmmmm...
Sure, go ahead. So far, you're the only non-wolfie player, so it's OK.

And we're good - all four of us. :) Hope you're doing well, too.
