Fallen World 2.0



  • Hello, everyone!

    Earlier in the year we concluded the ‘Season One’ of the game’s plot with the Pentacle gaining a permanent foothold in Manhattan. Now the power vacuum left by the absence of the more powerful magi of the Iron Pyramid has allowed the Consilium to become a stable institution in the island, while also making the five Orders directly responsible for keeping the encroaching darkness the Seers of the Throne controlled at bay.

    As the shadows creep from the corners of the world, and the streets and Shadow teem with entities that threaten the balance of things, the Forsaken of the Clear Skies protectorate make their appearance in the concrete jungle of Manhattan, untouched by the Sacred Hunt for far too long. Behind the world Herd pretends to be true, werewolves return to remember their ancient enemies why the whole Shadow feared Father Wolf.

    Fallen World is an action/horror Mage: The Awakening and Werewolf: The Forsaken 2nd Edition game set in Manhattan, an island that Sleeps when Mother Moon rises and night falls. In the dead of the night Herd cowers in their homes, praying whatever makes the strange noises outside doesn’t come in. Players take the role of the Awakened, Forsaken, and some other stranger creatures that belong in the dark.

    After the end of Season One we paused the game for a while and worked quite a bit on player feedback given to make sure to improve Fallen World. If you want to try out the gameline formerly known as World of Darkness for the first time, or if you want a place that does things just a bit crazier, this might be the place for you!

    In the following weeks we will be processing apps and asking for player feedback on some stuff to kickstart Season Two! Come on over, meet some cool people, ask questions if you have them! We ould love to have you!

    Code update: Added a few non-standard Auspices, found that my code was stupid in the head about Auspice Skills, and fixed it. New Families arrive, old Dynasties leave. Changes are afoot.


  • Pitcrew

    I am the only standard Auspice.

    You are certainly our Standard Reference Auspice.



  • Is this arc a continuation of War with the Seers? Or is that behind us now?

    Are they ever going to be a playable faction?



  • @Derp The War of Manhattan is over, and the Pentacle managed to finally get a foothold on Manhattan.

    The premise of this second arc is that, with the absence of the demigods of the Pyramid (the Ministry heads that were responsible for the butchery of the Great Betrayal) all sort of things are crawling out of the woodwork in Manhattan, to fill the power gap. Including the Forsaken. This was meant to offer a backdrop for plot and a skelleton I can build the story around, but without being a 'YOU MUST PARTICIPATE OR YOU ARE TERRIBLE'.

    All the caucus of the Pentacle have events schedule so they can organize, and each will get their own little things to do as the game progresses. The events kick off with the Guardians of the Veil, this Sunday! It is a good time to get involved in an order, and have stuff to do. The first Werewolf event is also already up.

    The Seers of the Throne are available as a Story Point template, and their first event is scheduled for the end of next month.

    Plz someone play a Giovanni with me.

    Could use some packmates.



  • @Ganymede

    Bone Shadow, Ithaeur, Voodoo Wannabe, Eater-of-the-Dead!?

    Only if you also play D&D.

    (I iz verah meta.)



  • Eye iz nah vry metahw. Le sads.


  • Coder

    Our pack could use an Ithaeur and a Cahalith, think Leverage cross with Scandal, Crisis Management. That's the focus.


  • Coder

    This is probably self-horn-tooty but... I'm really pleased with the number of people returning, and the number of new players joining. Still small, but finding a scene seems pretty easy. Players hanging about are friendly and helpful. It's good.

    Also, way to go @SunnyJ on the wiki revamp. Looks great.

    Pluuuuuuto

    Also have a woof, but since everyone wants to be batman, there is no need to be daredevil. Working on figuring out what to do now.

    It also sucks playing the blind guy on a MU* anyhow. :P

    ... blind guy on a MU* ...

    If you pose having a service dog and then just up and let others come up and give them head pats? I will cut you. PUPPER IS A HARD-WORKING INDIVIDUAL DOING THEIR JOB.

    (disclaimer: I have seen this happen else-mu. And I point this out ICly. Loudly. And am somehow the badguy.)

    Just make pupper a HBC who can inform people of this on his own. In a New Yorker Accent.

    @Auspice My wolf isn't Batman... not even Nightwing. More like the person who always shows up late to the party, unable to do much of anything.

    I hate my work schedule.
