Story Tellers

Mortals of Darkness

Hestia

Time Zone: Eastern
Availability:

Your ST Style: I generally go with the flow, and try to focus on telling a good story, while also making sure people have fun and enjoy themselves.

What Players Can Expect of You:  I’m super open to being approached, and am always happy to help.
What You Expect of Players: Communicate! Guys, no one can read minds, espcially not through the internet. So make sure to communicate with me.
What do you want Players to Know: I’m having the most fun as a staff member, when the players are happily playing in the story. It’s a game, let’s have a blast guys.

What is your favorite horror genre book, movie, game or other inspiration? My favoirte game by far are both of the Outlast games, while I can’t actually manage to play them, they are fantastic and very good at setting the mood of a horror game.

Prometheus

Time Zone: Pacific
Availability: Generally after 2pm Server time, with some mild exceptions, and not on Wednesdays.

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 You Expect of Players: A little faith and good communication skills!
What do you want Players to Know: All scenes are are going to have an effect on Scenes to come. Sometimes Failure happens, but don’t worry! I’ll use it to torm… help make your story more interesting!

What is your favorite horror genre book, movie, game or other inspiration? Disease Apocalyptic Settings (Think 28 Days/Weeks Later.) Body Horror (Aliens, that whole trilogy.)

Tsukiyomi

Time Zone: Eastern
Availability: I work nights M-F (and during the day some Saturdays) So typically weekends are best for me to run stuff.

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 You Expect of Players: “Don’t be a jerk” pretty much covers it.
What do you want Players to Know: I do work full time, but I will do my best to be available for you guys! And I am relatively new at STing, so I am looking forward to learning and growing in the position. Big Grin

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

 
Athena

Time Zone: PST
Availability: Weeknights After 5pm PST and most Weekends.

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 You Expect of Players: I expect my players to be patient with the translation and integration of the hunter rules, and excited to explore ALL of the themes of the game. Also, while we PLAY sometimes an antagonistic role in the Chronicles of Darkness world IC, players should never be antagonistic OOC.
What do you want Players to Know: I prepare for scenes, reading and learning as much about your PC as I can. You can always expect that while there may be many roads given to you, there is always going to be something for you to do in my scenes…they just may need a little more uncovering. I promise any work you do will be rewarded. I don’t tend to spend a lot of time describing things that don’t matter, and in the end, I simply want my players to be epic in my scenes, just as much as they want to be epic.

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).

Vampire the Requiem

 
Astolfo

Time Zone: Eastern
Availability: Currently I’m available every other weekend and on Mondays. The first week of August I’ll be on vacation.

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 You Expect of Players: I want players to be upfront in their goals and concise. If you have a gripe bring it to me ASAP I try my best to find solutions.
What do you want Players to Know: I’m a softie at heart. I have trouble holding grudges. I have a horrible memory please be patient with me.

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

 
Grendel

Time Zone: Best Coast (Pacific)
Availability: Typically after 6pm

Your ST Style: I try to be fairly sandboxed in my approach, and let players have a fair amount of freedom to approach any given situation in a variety of ways. I also tend to enjoy running as much ‘weird, creepy, supernatural happenings’ just as much as more conventional vampire storylines.

What Players Can Expect of You: I want to make the game as interesting for you as I can. If you have hooks in your background, I want to use them. If you have other ideas for things you’d like your PCs to be involved in, please let me know.
What You Expect of Players: To be open-minded and to conduct themselves in a congenial manner.
What do you want Players to Know: If you’re feeling stuck or lost, please let me know. I am more than happy to help IC or with ideas OOC. Also, don’t be afraid to fail; I’m a huge fan of failing forward.

Nox

Time Zone: Mountain
Availability: Later afternoon/Evenings

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 You Expect of Players: The same kind of respect and kindness I plan to give to every one of them, and hopefully a certain passion and creativity when it comes to their characters to really keep me inspired as well.
What do you want Players to Know: Creativity is key in this game, I dislike being asked how I should proceed. While I’m happy to help if somethings confusing I want to see your own creative solutions and goals come forward in your play. There’s never really a wrong course of action, though there can be deadly ones.

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 vampire experience and I hope to bring that to you all.

Mage the Awakening

JedI

Time Zone: Eastern
Availability: Weekdays After 10:30pm PST and on Weekends.

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 You Expect of Players: 1. Have fun. 2. Know the basic rules
What do you want Players to Know: Your PC might die and that is ok. We are not targetting you specifically. This mage game is meant to be harder than others and hopefully, a harder game means more fulfillment once completed.

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)

 
Themis

Time Zone: Eastern
Availability: Subject to change around the December holiday season: Mon-Wed is pretty open mornings/Afternoons; Thursday: by appointment only; Friday No scenes; Weekends: By appointment only.

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.

Khalid

Time Zone: Pacific (PST)
Availability: Fridays I a free after 4:30 PM PST, Saturdays I am not available(D&D night), Sunday – Tuesday I am free after 7:30 PM PST, Wednesday and Thursday I am off. (Of course these times may change due to real life, work, and what not.)

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 You Expect of Players: Respect given in return.
What do you want Players to Know: I am tough but fair. Also, we are here to have a good time so let’s just play!

Some pop culture/creepy pasta influences are Slender man, The Rake, Shadow people, the children with black eyes, and the SCP Foundation.

Loki

Time Zone: Pacific (PST)
Availability: Can be random, most of my time is open on Mondays and Fridays 1-8/9pm

Your ST Style: Tough. I’m not one to give out free candy. You want something good you will be going through hoops to get it, but I in turn make the reward a bit better than normal. Mystery, Misdirection, and Horror.

What Players Can Expect of You: While my st style will be rough and tough, I’m really easy to get along with. I will take the time to get to know your characters and use them to the best of their abilities. I am a huge fan of combat as long as the timing goes quickly, 3 minute rule fan.
What You Expect of Players: A little patience can go a long way. I tend to be a lot more patient than others. You work with me I work for you to make this all run smoothly.
What do you want Players to Know: My intention is to really make wolf shine. Too many times I have seen wolf be too lax, too many sunshine and rainbows. Its meant to be brutal, and that’s how I intend to go about it. Be prepared.
