This game is on hold until I’ve wrapped up two of the other stories.
To say that 1996 was a difficult year for the Kindred of San Francisco would be an understatement.
It took two months for the Primogen Council to fall apart. The Brujah and Ventrue Primogen are both dead and the Prince has gone missing. The Nosferatu and Gangrel Primogen abandon their posts to search for their missing Prince while the Toreador Primogen abandons San Francisco in search for friendlier waters.
Now, a newly chosen Council is left to pick up the pieces and find a new Prince before the Kindred of the city get restless. To make matters worse, a police detective who seems to have ties with the former Prince is starting to ask questions that endanger the Masquerade.
The Embraced is set following the events of the hit television series Kindred: The Embraced. For those unfamiliar with this amazing show; Kindred: The Embraced was an American television series very loosely based on the role-playing game Vampire: The Masquerade. The series premiered on Fox on April 2, 1996, and ran for eight episodes before it was canceled on May 9, 1996.
While this game uses the world of Kindred: The Embraced for it’s basis, it will also pull concepts and ideas from Vampire: The Masquerade. As such, basic knowledge of the both the TV series and the RPG would be greatly appreciated for participation in this game.
For those familiar with the events of the series, there has been one minor change made to this game’s plot. Julian never returned from his trip with Caitlin, as such Cash and Daedalus left to find him and Lily fled San Francisco. This clears out the council for new characters and lets the players try to pick up the pieces.
For those unfamiliar, to ease the burden of watching the show, you can check out the Digging for Diamonds podcast where the hosts watched every single episode and provided insightful and witty commentary tracks about it’s plot and setting.
Character Creation Notes
Portraits are required. No picture, no entry.
Treat the Backstory as a writing sample. I need to evaluate what kind of writer you are to get a feel for what your moves will be like.
Tense (Past, Present, or Future) and Perspective (First or Third Person) can be move dependent. I’m not concerned with keeping a cohesive narrative, just an interesting one.
Speed is set to Casual but not that over weekends I’m not active.
