    @Tonberry: I apologize if I missed it, but I cannot for the life of me find Junoís aspirations anywhere. I canít give your character personalized beats without this (or at least not as easliy), and these help me develop future scenes and plot points. If Iíve missed them, please repost them for me, and include them on your character sheet.

    If you havenít written them yet, please get them done ASAP!!!!

    Oh, FFS, did Mythweavers eat my info again?

    Show

    Short term- Get a handle on this crazy lifestyle. She was groomed to be a housewife. Now she's in a rock band full of werewolves and is trying to adjust how she was raised with what she has now.

    Short to long term: Avenge her father. Her father was not challenged. He was not attacked in honorable combat, but the Coward got the drop on him with a silver tipped rail spike, and murdered him just to get his ancestral klaive. Juno is always on the lookout for information pertaining to either the sword's whereabouts, or her father's killer. Bringing him to justice won't bring back Poppa, but it sure will make her feel better towards...


    Long term: An accomplished Werewolf- Juno was not supposed to become what she is, going by her family's opinions. The Blood Talons almost didn't accept her either-- if not for the feeling of heavy obligation to her father's legacy and because she was utterly fearless during her initiations to the point where she scarred her own throat to earn their respect. She has a deep-seated fear/understanding that nobody expected much out of her, that she is going to fail. She wants to be able to stand on her own and become a respected werewolf. She doesn't care if she makes new legends or tales, she just wants to do a good job and have it be met with approval, those of others sure, but maybe her own as well.



    EDIT/TL;DR: Get used to the crazy world. Find father's killer and father's klaive, earn respect and approval from both others and (ultimately) herself for having the brazen guts to alter her own fate.

    Thank you Tonberry. My one thought is that with the short term aspiration, would there be any way to clarify or simplify? What do you mean by get a handle on the rock and roll life? Can we come up with a more tangible or specific event that works in this way? For example, get payed for the bandís first gig (maybe not coming to terms with it, but probably getting payed helps), or have a performance with the band that positively affects another person. While you donít have to choose these, these examples would give me an idea of a scene or scenario I could fit in or would have a better idea of when the Aspiraiton is fulfilled.

    The OOC post was simply, that I knew one of your aspirations would be regarding the family blade, and I wanted to have this conversation before I described the knife Juno finds.

    Juno has confidence issues. I'm guessing with the first aspiration she just wants to perform well, maybe affect/touch the audience (specifically the audience and not the pack she's "stuck with") like the way you suggested.

    Also, I'm assuming the knife isn't her father's but I'm excited anyway.

    Ok. So have a performance where Juno knows she touched the audience.

    And yes, similar enough that itís likely of the same origin, but not the same klaive. But take a beat please for moving closer to your second aspiration

    I would like each player to take 4 beats. Each of the three pack aspirations were approached, and one for finishing the scene. Please add these to your character boxes, refill WP, and include your character box in your next post. The start of the next scene is being written now, and should be up soon.

    So, to explain what the hell I just wrote, the Bogatyr story is what Juno has been told about her Poppa's klaive as an explanation to where it came from. I was originally going to present it as part of her backstory to explain why the thing means so much to her and her family, and to give ideas to Bennosuke over what the sword actually does in case she ever got it.

    Since I had no idea that Juno would find a scorpion knife, I decided to present the story anyway, but now the veracity of it is entirely in the hands of the GM. Maybe there's Five Deadly Venoms (look it up) worth of klaives, maybe there's some truth to it, or maybe anything, really. In any scenario I'm actually more excited since I don't know, OOC, what's up.

    I just wanted to give more of her perspective into the matter, so that Juno isn't just going "Sweet, Free Knife!" and make it more of a conflict.

    ...By the way...

    Do I have to attune that weapon in order to figure out what it does? Or is there gonna be trial and error involved?

    So, before I respond IC, I need to know who is going to the whaling museum and who is staying to clean? Donít worry, there will be plenty to learn with both tasks. Right now it appears the groups so far are:

    Cleaning: Juno, Blaze?, Bear?
    Museum: Kara, Solomon

    Please confirm or clarify. Feel free to do so IC or OOC.

    @Tonberry: I think you may be thinking of WtA or maybe 1E rules. To identify the purpose of a Fetish or Talen, roll Int + Occult (per page 146). Perhaps Juno asks Blaze to help with this. To use a Fetish, the player rolls Resolve + Composure - Fetish rating, or burns an Essence. Hope this helps.

    And in regards to the discovery, as I was not fully aware of this origin story for the weapon, I had not factored it in. However, I will leave you in limbo needing Juno to do more investigation/research to figure out what is going on. I had Juno discover the object because she had a really strong score, but because I didnít want the fulfillment of the aspiration to be as simple as one good roll. Plus it would be hard to explain what the knife was doing there. However, now Juno has a mystery that is all her own to solve.

    Joke was more in the lines of "Wait, what is happening", but reading again, it does assume we're already walking, so here I go:

    Edit: that's one success, not for very long; either by physical capacity or disposition.

    @TC: That is fine. I will amend my last IC post. Sorry, I was simply trying to keep things moving.

    @Ladorak: 1. Sure, but at a -3 penalty (it is rather... esoteric ) 2. Yes. As I said during recruitment, this game was going to be heavily influenced by Lovecraft, as I thought millennia old inter dimensional horrors fit very well. And in real life, New Bedford is in many ways like Innsmouth, and I would not be surprised if HP was inspired by a port town like New Bedford if not the very town, and the locals are almost certainly a poorly veiled reference to the Cape Verdians who populate many such towns. Iím glad you got the reference. 3. Perhaps he existed, but this was intended to be a bit of an Easter egg, so I donít think Solomon would be like; ďlook at that so meta reference to HP Lovecraft guysĒ.
