Vampire Through the Ages

A Tale Told Through the Ages
Vampire Through The Ages

February the Third, In the Year of Our Lord 2009

 The players, some of whom had never played Vampire:the Masquerade before, were instructed to make characters as mortals first.  Each of them were given a fifteen-minute to a half-hour period detailing and role-playing their Embrace, the act of their Sire draining them of all their blood and returning a small amount of his own vampiric blood, transferring the Curse of Caine.  Details of the Embrace are listed in the characters' bios as necessary.

The players were not even allowed to choose their eventual Clan.  I (the StoryTeller) chose based on the personality of the character, background, and the direction the plot would eventually take them.  The players accepted in good grace, though latecomers to the group were allowed to choose their Clan with their character creation.  After recieving their Embrace, the players then finished their characters, with the full compliment of Backgrounds, new skills and upgraded Abilities, and Disciplines.

February 17. 2009 - New World, Strange Enemies and Stranger Friends
Session 2

Beginning the quest to hunt down the Crimson Knight, and meeting the Salubri healer San-Jean.

March 3, 2009 - A New Host of Trials
Session 3

The Party meets (and battles) werewolves, faeries, and a mage and his magics in one night!  Brock develops his love for horses, Sir Philip sends an innocent horse to its death, and the group has to fight an entire tower and its mage master.

March 17, 2009 - Why We Never Let Bishop John Have Nice Things
Session 4

The party tracks the Crimson Knight back to the road, and decides to ambush him at the abandoned abbey they met San Jean.  A final battle ensues, and Bishop John wins eternal glory by jumping from the second floor of the abbey with a church pew, driving the Knight into the ground and staking him in an incredible stroke of luck.

March 30, 2009 - Reaping the Rewards
Session 5

The party is acknowledged competent by Mithras (and the party grows to hate the Prince) for their success.  The staked Knight is handed to a favored childe of the Prince for diablerie, and the party is tasked with another special mission, to take down a bothersome preacher called Hector the Heretic.  The party's sole conflict in transit is against some unwise brigands, and the group learns just how superior they are to common mortals as immortal Kindred.

April 14, 2009 - Closing Down the Heretic
Session 6

The party finds not only Hector, but a stash of artifacts under the old church overlooking the sea in Lincoln.  The party faces some tough choices.

April 21, 2009 - Two Un-Live Crew
Session 7

Brock and Sir Philip alone confront a host of enemies when left to their own devices.  They discover a cave full of wonders, foreshadowing the kinds of mystical encounters they shall face in the future.

April 28, 2009 - The Night of Incomplete Notes
Session 8

Bishop John missed out this session, but my notes are incomplete.  A little help on this night please?

May 12, 2009 - New Soldiers, New War
Session 9

The party, now divorced from London's intrigue, now calls Lincoln and its werewolf problems home.  Fortunately, silver becomes more than just currency, as they dispatch several angry Garou.

May 26, 2009 - Lovely New Friends
Session 10

The party gets to know and love the Prince, a Malkavian vampire with a serious identity crisis, and Brock has a fling with the Spanish advanturess Alejandra.  Combat included some peasants and werewolves, but spotty notes means I can use some help.
