I still have all of my books, but haven't played in over a decade. I do miss it though, what a great PnP game. Anyone else play(ed)?

VtM LARPing? Whoa, that had to have been kind of crazy.

:lol: Yeah, we were an intense crowd. ;)

A snippet of one of our first meets:

The Storyteller (GM) allowed Vamps and Werewolves, for some reason. I chose a puppy. An innocuous Silent Strider at that. Basically a smart but weak char, much like yours truly. Anyway, the Ventrue Primogen (6th gen, IIRC) got all uppity (as they are wont) and basically got into a fight with my character. Remember, he's a weak puppy.

Well, my puppy eventually got pissed and went full Crinos on him. Now, this form granted an assload of additional attributes mostly in Strength. Now, if the Ventrue had been built with at least some Strength, it would have been a contest. Well, he hadn't. :lol:

One round later, my puppy had decapitated the Ventrue with his claws. The Storyteller then rethought the wisdom of adding puppies to the game. :lol: :twisted:

Frickin' awesome scene, and one of the very few I still remember from... oh god, 1998 or somesuch? Damn.

This is a pic, I believe, from that game. I'm the one in the trenchcoat. (You know I'm cool because I wear sunglasses at night.) The Storyteller is in the vest. This wasn't the encounter in question, though. :)



(Yeah, I'm young as hell. :lol: )

Wow never tried LARPing myself. I actually prefer PbP to PnP even because at least as GM, you have the time to consider while improvising. Not to mention it being a creative writing collaboration as well as a game. :P

Still id try it for sure. I do love RP in all its forms :D and wow Zepp what a photo!

PbM or Play by Mail

Commonwealth countries. Post is a big wooden log stuck in the ground. Not what the paper envelopes the guy brings to your door Monday through Saturday

Yank I dont see where the confusion is.

*stalks around players glaring*

*plants huge wooden log in the ground next to a line of twenty already standing*

Used to play, way back in the day. Yes, when it first came out.

Tried to get back in when Requiem came out but never really got in to it.

Played both Masquerade in the day and am the storyteller of a Requiem chronicle.
I miss masquerade though, but there is a distinct lack of groups in my area.

I have some of the old VtM books, but sadly none of my group ever wanted to play after one half-hearted attempt :( I had to be happy with the PC games.

My favorite clan is a toss-up between the Ravnos and the Tremere
