Erebos: House of Darkness

Erebos is a role-playing game based on White Wolf's very own 'Vampire the Masquerade: 20th Anniversary Edition'. Set in the modern nights era, in our very own fictional New Babylon situated in the heart of the Napa Valley, players may craft their characters and journey through
the World of Darkness as they see fit, and over the Internet rather than seated around a table.

Register today to join us and craft a character that will grow, and journey through New Babylon
(or around the world if that is your desire.) As you prosper in this adventure, we hope you enjoy
your stay at Erebos and become a vibrant part of our friendly community!

General Inquiries

- Handler Name/Alias: Max

- Contact Info: max366@yahoo.de


- How old are you? 43

- What interests you that you want to apply to Erebos?
I love playing VtM, and there are not that many online chronicles existing, unfortunately. I was searching in the internet for another chronicle where I can play.
I like it that here are factions. Similar like in Vampire Requiem...that´s the only thing I liked about Requiem really, I couldn´t get used to the clans. I prefer the clans of the oWoD, and at Erebos these are existent, and factions as well, that´s a good combination in my opinion.

- How did you find out about us?
I found a link to this forum at rpg-directory.com.

- Do you have any experience role-playing?
Yes, I have been playing VtM since March 2004 (so it´s already ten years), first Larp and P&P, but in the last few years I have been playing only in online chronicles.

- Will you seek a position of leadership within our family or are you content with standard membership?

Yes, my character would seek a position of leadership. I´m willing to dedicate time and energy to acquire and keep such a position. If my character succeeds is another matter, and I wouldn´t be unhappy if he doesn´t, but I like the challenge, and I prefer to play in a chronicle where players have a chance to gain such positions.


Basic Character Concept

Character Name: Alan Percy

Age: 134, of which he has been 81 years a vampire (born 1880 as Alan Ian Percy, who became 8th Duke of Northumberland; ghoul since 1920, embraced by Professor Darius Grimm in 1933)

Faction House of Choice: Tenebros

Any other Affiliation besides the House Chosen: Camarilla, House and Clan Tremere

Notable Enemies: None yet

Character Role/Occupation in House: I´m not sure if I can choose something already? I suppose Business Tycoon might fit best. He might be aiming to become Demagogue later on.

Place of Residence:
As Tremere Regent of Las Vegas he resides in the Chantry of Las Vegas and has a private luxurious haven in that city, too (If that city is not possible I´ll choose another one, but Las Vegas would be great for this sinful Tremere ;))

Brief Physical Description:
Alan is 6´1 tall and has long, very light blonde hair and looks about 40 years old. The way he looks and moves, it has a very noble bearing.. Always wears classy, elegant, slighly extravagant clothes, mostly dark. He wears expensive silver jewellery (rings and chains) and has mostly a black cane with him.

Sample RP:
(This is from the character background of Alan´s Sire Professor Grimm)

The Professor wasn´t aware how wrong he was, and that vampires existed indeed. He had in fact already been watched by a vampire for years. Winfred Brook, Tremere Ancilla and Regent of Oxford had some control over the university, it was the field of his personal influence. And so such a hard working tutor like Professor Grimm would of course be noticed by him.
The Professor virtually had no private life. Unlike most Professors he wasn´t married, he only lived for his work. He had studied two subjects at the same time, not only history of art but also archeology, and now he was Professor of those two subjects.
He was the kind of person Regent Brook was looking for...to be possibly embraced sometime. As he was a possible candidate there was a file about him, Brook´s contacts at university reported to him about the Professor regularly.
But Regent Brook wasn´t someone who tended to make rash decisions. For now he was just watching. And he liked it a lot anyway if someone had reached a mature age before he got embraced. He himself looked like a man in his fifties.
Regent Brook also liked it that Professor Grimm had a reputation of being strict and demanding. He also knew that it wasn´t easy for the Professor in England because of being half German. And yet he had persevered. That showed that he was strongwilled. To be strongwilled enough to persevere even in the most hostile environment, that was important for being a Tremere, that was at least the Regent´s opinion.

Some years later Regent Brook finally wanted to meet his potential Childe in person. Through the dean of Christchurch College (whom the Regent had influence on) the Regent made an appointment with Professor Grimm. The Regent introduced himself with his real name Winfred Brook and asked the Professor for a favour. Was he willing to help him to find a valuable artifact in Egypt? This was supposed to be a test.
"It is a magical Scarabeus."
"Magical? So it better shouldn´t get into the wrong hands."
The Regent didn´t notice the intended irony but took it seriously. The Professor in fact didn´t believe that this was really a magical artifact. Magic in general was mostly just humbug in his opinion. Tricks and make-believe, but towards this gentleman he prefered to be polite instead of telling him his true opinion.
"Indeed, it shouldn´t", the Regent replied.
"So you should be very careful, especially if you manage to find the artifact. I will pay for all expences. The dean has agreed that you do this for me."
The Professor liked such journeys, and he was very interested in Ancient Egypt anyway, and so he agreed to do it.
He took Alan with him. Luckily the Professor had already learned Arabic, so it wasn´t a problem to communicate in Egypt. In just two weeks he managed to complete his task, and so they came back to Oxford. Another meeting with the Winfred Brook was arranged. The Professor noticed that this mysterious Mr. Brook seemed to be quite impressed.
"So what kind of magic has this Scarabeus in it?"
"I can tell you that in detail later and a lot more about magic, if you are interested."
"Yes, that would be fine."
Professor Grimm was simply curious what kind of tales that man might come up with, still not taking this quite seriously.
"Come to this address, tomorrow at 11 p.m.", the Regent said and gave him a business card.

Why was it that this man only could meet him at night? But the Professor didn´t wonder about that for long, he simply went there the next night. It was a big manor. He wasn´t aware that this was the Chantry of the Tremere, he thought it belonged to Mr. Brook.
A servant opened the front door and led him to an office, it was the Regent´s office, and Winfred Brook went with him into the adjoining laboratory. There was a tiny homunculus, only about one feet tall. First Darius thought it was a doll, but then his host spoke to it.
"This is Melvin, my homunculus. Melvin, this is Professor Grimm."
And that "doll" replied!
"Good evening, Professor Grimm."
The Professor was dumbfounded, for the second time in his life, and he just stared at this tiny being, totally stunned.
"This...can´t be real", he finally uttered.
"Oh yes, it is, Melvin is a very good assistant. You might also be able to create one later on. If you agree to become part of our family. I am making you this offer tonight. If you decline, I will delete this encounter from your memory and you can continue your life as normal."
Delete this encounter from his memory? That sounded impossible. But Professor Grimm also hadn´t believed in the existance of a homunculus until now.
"I belong to a clan that does blood magic. A vampire clan."
A vampire clan?? This man was a vampire?! And the Professor had mocked Alan for longing to be turned into a Vampire. If only he could tell this to Alan now. But the Professor would have to make a decision, he obviously wouldn´t get out of this building with that knowledge if he said No.
The Regent told Professor Grimm a bit more of what the Tremere did and about Vampires in general. And finally came the crucial question.
"Do you want to become a Tremere? It is an honor to have been chosen for that."
Was it? It didn´t feel like that to him, not yet, but the prospect of getting to know about things he wouldn´t have dreamt of existing was tempting. Inviting. He couldn´t possibly throw away this opportunity?
The Regent knew of Tremere who hadn´t been asked if they wanted to become a Tremere, but in his opinion a possible candidate for the kiss should get the opportunity to make that decision himself.
"Yes, I want to", the Professor finally replied.


Role-Playing Questions

- Define god-modding, power-gaming, and meta-gaming in your own words.

God modding:
That includes f.e. making other player's characters do or say things (without these player´s consent), or assuming important facts about a scene without consulting the other players involved, mostly in order to make your own character look more awesome.

Powergaming:
That´s when not storytelling is what is the most important thing, but you just just play to win and to make your character look awesome, not caring about realism and how other players feel about this. Whatever your character does, he succeeds, f.e. has suddenly new skills when he needs them, has accidentally excactly the right equipment with him, miraculously avoids all damage in combat.

Metagaming:
OOC knowledge influences your IC decisions. This is inevitable to a certain extent, but it can be handled responsibly or very poorly.
Responsible play involves keeping track of what your characters would and wouldn't know and playing their knowledge levels realistically.
Bad metagaming is using OOC knowledge to give your character IC advantages that aren't fair to or fun for other players.


- Give a brief overview of who or what you believe your character is?
Alan is a charismatic Bon Vivant, mostly charming, but he can be ruthless as well. seeking to enjoy unlife to the fullest, thinking he deserves the best. He grew up knowing he´s somebody special, the next Duke of Northumberland. He is quite vain, cunning, persuasive, manipulative, loves to seduce and to be in the centre of attention. Alan is ambitious, striving to be respected, willing to risk a lot for a high gain, keeps working hard to improve his status, but at the same time he is indulging in his hedonistic tendencies as much and as discreetly as possible.


- Regardless of your character's actions, does s/he believe in the Masquerade?

Oh yes, he doesn´t want to be seen as a monster by those mortals he seduces, and knows he would be if they knew he is a vampire, so he takes good care to pretend he´s mortal. And he doesn´t want to commit any offence against the traditions of the Camarilla, otherwise he would be seen as a criminal.


- Have you read the Community Guidelines (Rules) and agree to abide by them?

Yes, I have read them and am willing to abide by them.


- Any final questions, comments or concerns?

I´m a German, my English is quite good, but it´s not my mother tongue.

I can´t download the rulebook, character sheet etc. - if I try I just get to a page where is stated: The requested URL /files/V20_1-Pagev2_Neonate_Interactive.pdf was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

In another chronicle I am already playing Alan´s Sire Professor Grimm, but I would love to play the Professor here, too, later on. Might that be possible if they belong to different houses and haven´t got any contact any more (f.e. because by now they dislike each other)?

Wanted to go ahead and let you know I have uploaded a .zip file with all of the files. Not sure why you are receiving that error as I have checked with another member and it works for the both of us. May I ask what browser you are using? I view it just fine in Firefox. Anyways, here is the zip give it a try and let me know if it works. Thanks :D

As for your application it all looks good to me. I will allow some of the others to comment on the application but I don't think they'll have any objections to any of your answers thus far. As for playing Alan's sire, I don't have any problems with it, no. Welcome to Erebos, I hope you enjoy your stay, and I look forward to RP'ing with you in the future. :) After character creation is finished and all the fancy paperwork we can discuss leadership positions available. We're even looking for a storyteller or two if you'd be interested and have the experience.

So without further ado, the next step in the process is to create and flesh out your character to include character sheets. Reference our Player's Handbook section and post the Biography in the main Character Construction forum for review. If you need any assistance, do not hesitate to ask!

Welcome to Erebos: House of Darkness community, Max! :)

It's great to have another European on the boards (I am Polish, but reside in the United States.) I hope you are able to find your way around the place as we're still getting a few things 'sorted out'. If you have any questions, comments or concerns - please feel free to voice them in this thread, or the Suggestion Box - or even PM one of the Staff - whatever you prefer. Your application has been approved, so it looks like it's onto step #2 - getting your Character Sheet set up. Should you need assistance - again, the Staff is here to serve, so just give us a shout via PM, Shoutbox or in thread, and we'll try to assist you as much as we can. We don't currently use a VOIP to communicate given the low numbers of active members (as we're just trying to get this show off the ground, so to speak), but we use Skype for group calls, if needed.

I look forward to Role-Playing with you in the future and once again, welcome to Erebos. :D

Glad to hear that. So I´ll start with the character sheet.

I´m using Opera. Thank you for the zip, luckily it worked to download it.

Is it possible for a Neonate to become Ancilla during the game? That wouldn´t gain Alan extra dots for attributes etc. (like for characters who are already Ancilla at character creation), but of course he´d be happy about gaining Camarillastatus.

What about Thaumaturgy rituals, can I pick any?

Edit:

> We're even looking for a storyteller or two if you'd be interested and have the experience.

In principle I´m interested in that.
But we don´t really know each other well enough yet...you might like to get to know me a bit better first.

I was ST in a Larp chronicle, and I enjoyed it very much to develop plot ideas.
I used to write novels, so I like it generally to construct plots and to portray various persons. The bad side of being an ST was, that my Nosferatu who had been a PC until then became an NPC, and that meant he couldn´t do anything out of his own initiative. He only investigated things if PC came to him and asked for information.

In online chronicles I have seen it that STs were playing normal NPC (who had more dots on the sheet as newly created PCs, but didn´t gain XPs during the game) when needed, but also had an equivalent to a player´s character who was created like a PC, played continiously (mainly for fun and not so much for plot purposes) and also got XPs. Might that be possible here, too?
In that case I would be even more tempted to become ST...if my character Alan Percy can be played like a PC and gains XPs. I wouldn´t mind if all other characters I play are normal NPCs.

Once I was ST in an online chronicle, but I was the only ST, that was only manageable because there were only few players. It worked fine as long as there were still five players (although it was a bit stressful to do everything on my own), but when two of those five stopped playing and no new players turned up, that was the end to it. It was set in Finnland ("Helsinki by Night"), with a Tremere elder als Prince.
I´m half Finnish (my mother is a Finn and my father a German, I grew up in Germany, but can speak Finnish and have visited my relatives in Finnland often), so I enjoyed it a lot that I could bring in my Finnish background.

For what kind of tasks would you need someone? Contributing plot ideas and playing NPCs, that´s something I would surely enjoy.
I know a lot about the Camarilla and about most Camarilla Clans (except the Gangrel, who are in some chronicles still part of the Camarilla, in others they aren´t). I know the basics about the Sabbat and the Independents, but not enough to play anybody old of these clans adequately.
I can play Ventrue, Tremere and Brujah best (that´s what I have played most often, also an elder of each of those clans), but I can also play Toreador, Nosferatu and Malkavian well enough (Neonates and Ancillae in any case), and I have read the clanbooks of all those clans (2nd edition).
Strangely enough, Clan Gangrel was never my thing really, so I played only once a Gangrel, and it also didn´t appeal to me to play a Giovanni, Setite, Assamite or Ravnos, even when there would have been the possibility.

But even if I remain a player, then my third character should be a Maledictus badass.

Hi Alan! I thought I'd offer some comments - hopefully they won't confuse you, hehe.

While it's not disallowed, I don't think it would be encouraged. We have characters here who are in the same houses for instance (and are played by the same person), but they are no Kindred relation to one another. Though I imagine that since we're all following a type of 'honor' system here and that we trust each other not to meta/power game, doing what you mentioned should not be a problem. *grins*

Is it possible for a Neonate to become Ancilla during the game?
Looking at your character as I first read it, I thought he'd be Ancilla anyway - since he's over 100 years old. Did you want to start him off as Neonate for role-play purposes, then?

The bad side of being an ST was, that my Nosferatu who had been a PC until then became an NPC, and that meant he couldn´t do anything out of his own initiative. He only investigated things if PC came to him and asked for information.
I don't see why you would have to give up your character if you were on Staff. The same honor system applies. With the way ST is ran here, there is no one person assigned to oversee a single storyline. A ST will simply never rule on the actions of his or her own character (he or she will leave it to the other STs), strictly for ethics purposes - and that's about the only guideline to keep in mind.

For what kind of tasks would you need someone? Contributing plot ideas and playing NPC, that´s something I would surely enjoy.
As you said above - most definitely - though the focus would likely have to involve the Triangle/Power & Survival Struggle amongst all the houses of Erebos (current and former). I'd hesitate to bring in any new, powerful and unstable elements until the groundwork for the main conflict has been solidified - but I doubt it will take long if people remain active and write daily. As for clans, I think Brujah, Tremere and Gangrel is what is needed most. Nosferatu and Malkavian wouldn't hurt either (those two are always SO entertaining to both play AND watch!).

But even if I remain a player, then my third character should be a Maledictus badass.
When you first applied with Alan, I thought he would be going with Maledictus - so imagine my surprise when you chose the sycophant house (Tenebris). *chuckles* I can't wait to see your character in action - welcome to Erebos!

I think Elena here answered just fine, so if you have anything else you wish to add or ask please do not be afraid to do so. Adding on to the ancilla portion I don't see why they couldn't be elevated to ancilla status through the chronicle, even more so if they aren't gaining any attribute/skill points etc.

Though I suppose I should address one thing, mainly concerning the following

I'm sure it's rather obvious by now that we're a rather trusting administration/staff group. I prefer to give grace before taking it away. Simply meaning, you have the freedom until you do something with which I revoke it. After all as Elena stated a few times, we're on an "honor" system and I hope we're all honorable, and friendly enough to play our characters without a need to powergame, metagame, etc. after all RP is viewed to be something as fun. Now, obviously, not everyone's characters will get along and generally I will allow those whom do not wish their PC's to be killed to have such done against them without prior expressed permission, or unless something happens within RP to really merit it (such as a unilaterally excellent fuck up or mistake on the player's own part) partially because I prefer to have a friendly group with which we can all be to be frank friendly. I'm rambling now so I'll stop :p

It was stated in the rules that as a first character players can create a Neonate with no lower generation than 10.
Or does "Neonate" just mean "Neonate dots", so 3 discipline dots instead of 4 for Ancillae?
I thought it means status Neonate, so I was thinking I play Alan as an old Neonate. But it can be very different what is considered to be old for a Neonate. In some chronicles it is very early to become an Ancilla with less than 100 active years as a vampire (and it doesn´t count if you´ve been a ghoul for 100 years before that).

A ST will simply never rule on the actions of his or her own character (he or she will leave it to the other STs), strictly for ethics purposes - and that's about the only guideline to keep in mind.

That sounds all very good, under these circumstances I could imagine it very well to be ST.

Hmm...I´m having second thoughts on this...maybe he truly is better suited to be a Maledictus.
I was beginning to think myself, that he´s somehow far too harmless if he belongs to house Tenebris. He surely could succeed there, but he might be a lot more fun to play if he´s part of the badass club. :D

I'm sure it's rather obvious by now that we're a rather trusting administration/staff group. I prefer to give grace before taking it away.

That´s great, that makes me feel very much at ease and welcome. I was once allowed to play two characters who are lovers, with the restriction that they can meet secretly but are not allowed to help each other, as it would be unfair to have a powerblock. And indeed they didn´t help each other.

Alan and his Sire were lovers, too, but it was sadomasochistic love-hate relationship. The Professor has a bit of a short fuse, and Alan enjoyed to enrage him, and the Professor enjoyed punishing Alan. They knew each other already when the Professor was still teaching at university and Alan was a student, their secret relationship began when Alan was 18.
But I´ll best post the backstory, then you can read about the details.

I would quite like it if they just hate each other by now...the Professor could have a new secret lover who´s his ghoul now. Alan would be still obsessed with him but would hate it to have been replaced by some youth. That could be another reason why he´s in a faction that is evil and opposes the other factions.

I wonder, how is it possible to post the character sheet here? The only method I can think of is to print it out, then scan it, and to post the scan.

I believe, and it should, state that new players to VtM would need to request permission from the Staff to create an ancilla otherwise they would be required to make a Neonate. Given that you've LARP'ed as well as participated in other online chronicles, I see no problems with you have him as an ancilla.


As for posting your character sheet if you have a PDF Viewer, such as Adobe PDF even, you should have a "View" tab and upon clicking on it it should enable you to view the sheet full screen. Then we simply print screen, paste into paint, save, and upload to an image hoster.

O.K., so I obviously misunderstood this. I thought it is meant players who are new in this forum should play a Neonate first. In another forum it was like that - your first character had to be a Neonate (no matter how much experience the players had), and if you played there a few month you could apply to play a second character who is Ancilla.

Then I´ll rather play Alan as an Ancilla, it would fit better to that character really. So I´ll make alterations on the character sheet.
(Edit: I´ve done that now and edited my character sheet post.)

Is it also like that on Windows 8?
I´ve got a new notebook and I´m having trouble with Windows 8 (with various things that I could handle a lot better with Vista and Windows 7). I can see the sheet on PDF viewer, but there´s not a big selection of things you can do. There´s "save as" and "print", but I didn´t find a possibility to paste the sheet into paint. But it doesn´t seem to be a PDF Viewer, but a PDF Reader what I´ve got here, whatever the difference might be.
Maybe I´ll best use the method of printing and scanning after all, that´s at least something I manage to do...as soon as I get access to my parent´s computer and scanner.

After you've filled out the sheet in Adobe Reader, try going into EDIT in the menu, then Select All. I normally use my Mouse to left-click + hold down button and then select the entire sheet area, scrolling down as needed so I get it all highlighted. Then I click the "Take a Snapshot" option (still in Edit) and copy/paste the snapshot into Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop, Paint - or whatever image editor I have on hand. Finally, I save it as a desired file type (PNG, JPEG or GIF), and upload it to Imgur. Voila!

P.S.
I know this must have come across as horribly complicated, hehe. I'm not especially good with giving directions. :oops:

Thanks...it is compatible indeed. And now I´ve got a menu with lots of possibilities, that´s a great improvement.
But it seems to me that this is only for free for 14 days, and then I would have to pay for it.

Yeah, that's what it says - but I've been using my free version for long past that, and it's still fully functional when it comes to the basic stuff (like editing and saving) which is really all I need it for.

By now I noticed that the basic stuff that is for free is quite enough. I could make a "snapshot" of the sheet and paste it into Paint. Well, that´s what I wanted. I don´t need the extras I would have to pay for (I hadn´t even activated the trial version of those), so I´ll simply keep the basic version that is for free.

Brilliant. :) Well, then - Alan - I guess you're all set to begin RP. If you have any concerns on how to begin or any ideas you want to run past people, feel free to post it in the Character Construction forum.
