Mortals of Darkness
Time Zone: Eastern
Your ST Style: I prefer to run smaller/shorter scenes that have a distinct purpose to them. I like to keep things linear and to the point.
What Players Can Expect of You: A more player centered approach. Oh, and combat. I like combat!
What is your favorite horror genre book, movie, game or other inspiration? I’m actually not a huge horror person. *gasp* The horror I do like is The Shining, American Psycho, and Cloverfield. I’m more of a crime/action genre girl. My favorite movie is The Way of the Gun.
Time Zone: Eastern
Your ST Style: My goal for players is to be engaged in the scene and to feel like the decisions they make have an impact on what is happening. Also I think saying “no” as answer is supremely boring, so I will do my best to work with you when you have an idea!
What Players Can Expect of You: Memes. (Kidding, mostly…) As previously stated, I will work with you when you have an idea no matter how out there it seems. I also will treat you with respect and decency, as that is super important to me.
What is your favorite horror genre book, movie, game or other inspiration? Oddly enough, I’m more of a psychological thriller type person vs straight up horror, but I do love the ideas of games like Outlast, Eternal Darkness, and P.T., which take away your ability to fight back and make you question your own sanity as you progress. I also love the Shin Megami Tensei series, particularly the feel of the Digital Devil Saga and Persona series.
Hunter the Vigil
Time Zone: PST
Your ST Style: Players have a ton of flexibility in my scenes, and there will ALWAYS be multiple ways to solve a problem or deal with things that come in in scenes. I run horror, mystery, gore, and will try and push your PC to make the harder decisions so that you can have that character development to become the “anti-heroes” of the setting.
What Players Can Expect of You: You can expect me to know your character and work with you to integrate it into the main plots and story, as well as paying close attention to your sheet and story hooks. I’m fair and, and I also use the “3-minute rule” for combat scenes to make sure things keep moving and we all have fun.
What is your favorite horror genre book, movie, game or other inspiration? Eternal Darkness (Video Game), Another (Anime), Resident Evil Series (Video Game), Five Nights At Freddies (Video Game), Ringu (Foreign Movie), Ju-on (Foreign Movie), Silent Hill (Video Game), Let The Right One In (Foreign Movie), Nightmare on Elm Street (Movie), Goosebumps (Book), and the SCP Foundation (Website).
Time Zone: Central (CST)
Your ST Style: I don’t believe that problems in scenes should or will have a single solution. I really enjoy story lines that aren’t just simple “Bug Hunts”. I like hard choices and sometimes even phyrric victories. I try to evoke a cinematic feel to my scenes, overall.
What Players Can Expect of You: Expect me to do everything in my power to give your PC a Moment in scenes. I try and keep my scenes moving and dynamic. Character death can happen, it’s Hunter, but I believe that a character should never die in vain. If a character dies, it should serve the Story.
What is your favorite horror genre book, movie, game or other inspiration? My love of Horror is varied. I’m a huge fan of Slasher flicks like the Nightmare on Elm Street series and Halloween and up to later gems like Hatchet. Been a lifelong fan of all things Evil Dead and love to mix a bit of camp with my gorier scenes. I love deconstructions of the genre like Behind the Mask and Tucker and Dale vs Evil. For pure horror, I look towards cerebral movies like Session 9. The Silent Hill games are great as is Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem. The presence of the Elder Sign on my arm IRL brands my love for Lovecraftian Horror.
Time Zone: Mountain
Your ST Style: I like to create and present a believable world, I really believe immersion is important and that isn’t necessarily the same as realism. All things in their place and in proper context that help pull you into the world.
What Players Can Expect of You: Oh I’m a pretty level-headed person and like to think I’m approachable for just about any issue you might have and I love tailoring stories and situations towards individuals as well as groups.
What is your favorite horror genre book, movie, game or other inspiration? I was introduced to World of Darkness by the game ‘Bloodlines’ for the PC many years ago. It was campy and a little over the top but it helped introduce the world of vampire to me (even if that was masquerade). But even as that game had it’s own silliness and strange parts it made up for everything in maintaining a dark atmosphere charged with violence, mystery, politics, and of course sex. I think all of this in equal part are important to a fun world of darkness experience and I hope to bring that to you all.
Changeling the Lost
Time Zone: Eastern
Your ST Style: I believe firmly in encouraging player-pro activity, and encouraging a collaborative narrative for my venues. This is your story as much as mine – more, really!
What Players Can Expect of You: I’m tough, but fair. I don’t play favorites, and I don’t pull punches, but I want you to succeed.
What is your favorite horror genre book, movie, game or other inspiration? I’m a huge fan of Clive Barker’s work in general, as well as the work of Edgar Allan Poe and the darker side of Neil Gaiman. Dark, gothic works crossed with a dose of twisted sensuality, a sprinkling of the carnal and visceral, and a pinch of the surreal and psychological.
Time Zone: Pacific
Your ST Style: Creative, Free-Flowing, Prone to throwing curve balls.
What Players Can Expect of You: Interesting Scenes where they find oddities both mechanically and crunch wise.
What is your favorite horror genre book, movie, game or other inspiration? Body Horror (Aliens, that whole trilogy.)
Mage the Awakening
Time Zone: Eastern
Your ST Style: Plot, Combat, Mystery
What Players Can Expect of You: To know the rules and to give everyone in smaller scenes a time to shine.
What is your favorite horror genre book, movie, game or other inspiration? Betrayal at House on the Hill (boardgame), Resident Evil series (games), Nightmare on Elm Street (movie)
Time Zone: Eastern
Your ST Style: Personal Development, Mystery/Investigation, Plot, Combat
What Players Can Expect of You: Players should expect small scenes and more personal development focus. I may even ask the players prior to a scene what they’d like to see happen and see if I can work it into the scene. When I run my own plots they will be focused on solving mysteries unless players request otherwise. I will be working in support of the Mage team bring out NPCs for Day time players. Players can expect spelling and grammar errors from me and I ask if you catch one for my education please pm me politely about it.
What You Expect of Players: 1) Story Over Mechanics 2) Let’s Have Fun 3) Be Excellent to Everyone 4) Know the Basics 5) Don’t be Afraid to Ask Questions 6) Thinking Out of the Box is Always Welcome!
What do you want Players to Know: I will try to resolve a scene in the allotted time. I prefer smaller scenes. I will warn players if scenes or actions could have catastrophic results. If a scene has a threat level that might lead to character death you will be forewarned. Leaving is a solution and almost always an option. Rarely is exiting or non-violent resolutions to a problem not allowed. Thinking out of the box is always welcome!
What is your favorite horror genre book, movie, game or other inspiration? The Alien movies, AVP, and Resident evils are among my favorite horror movies. I prefer mysteries and detective novels. Dresden Files, Christopher Moore & A Lee Martinez, books.
Vampire the Requiem
Time Zone: Eastern
Your ST Style: I tend to take a organic approach putting myself in my NPCs mindset and thinking of how they’d act or react. I like creating and using game mechanics to simulate actions not covered in the books (like building a business for example). I tend to be a little harsh with my task rolls giving slightly higher penalties than other STs might but also being generous with rewards for success. I like making players feel like they earned what they have.
What Players Can Expect of You: I won’t be around too often to run scenes but I’ll do my best to make the ones I do run come alive for you.
What is your favorite horror genre book, movie, game or other inspiration? Buffy! Magical Girls! Dungeons and Dragons! My favorite movie is probably V For Vendetta
Werewolf the Forsaken
Time Zone: Pacific (PST)
Your ST Style: I tend to lean more story driven, I really like to make you(and your character) feel involved. I also like to run a lot of otherworldly stuff as well as occult and intrigue.
What Players Can Expect of You: Respect for their wants for the story and hopefully an overall good time.
What is your favorite horror genre book, movie, game or other inspiration? I am a huge fan of the works of Clive Barker books or movies. a small list of movies I draw inspiration from is The Void, Alien(s), Dune, 30 Days of Night, The Strangers, The Thing, and Dreamcatcher. Some pop culture/creepy pasta influences are Slender man, The Rake, Shadow people, the children with black eyes, and the SCP Foundation.
Time Zone: Greenwich Mean Time Zone (GMT)
Your ST Style: Wordy!
What Players Can Expect of You: Prompt thread work done and polite, friendly discussions.
What is your favorite horror genre book, movie, game or other inspiration? I love a good body horror, and I make it my mission in life to watch at least one terrible horror movie per week. Ideally more! Zombie flicks are also usually good fun, and I’m a firm fan of Resident Evil for that reason. (Games moreso than the movies…)
