For the first session of the game, we mostly cleared up administrative stuffs. Everyone but Bobby was there over the course of the evening, and I think everyone had at least a character concept by the end. We went over the powers of the Chancel, and also did Three Things True for Aestas Hiberna. I think everyone did a great job, especially since only one person had ever gone through the process before. We’ll get used to it as we meet new NPCs or visit new places.
A couple of things I wanted to make sure we recorded. I let everyone know a few things that will be important for the start of the game:
We’ll be entering game two weeks before the opening ceremonies for the 2010 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles. About two weeks ago IG there was a rather large Excrucian attack on Earth. One of the largest in memory. Aestas Hiberna’s power was severely weakened, and while all of you were lucky to survive, not all of the Nobilis in your Familia were. Your Chancel is fine, but there are concerns about what would happen if something else goes wrong. Aestas Hiberna is expecting the Summer Olympics to go well, so as to re-establish your seat of power.
We will officially start the game on 7/19. Updates have been made to the Characters section of this campaign, especially for Aestas Hiberna and the Chancel. I have also given profile power to Russell and Rookie, as they’re the only two people I know have an obsidian portal login. If you register with the site, I can invite you onto the campaign, and you can control your character page.
Game soon! Huzzah!
