First of all, before I begin this entry, I feel the need to gloat.

I AM BECOME SALZOR: DESTROYER OF NETTLES



Yes, that feels much better. I've just got in from an hour or so attacking my garden with a strimmer. Currently the garden is looking ragged, but there are no more nettles, no more knee high grass and I'm quite impressed with how solid my roses are looking. I'm considering getting some more rose bushes, actually, as they seem to be the only thing that flourish in my garden. I'm just not sure what will go with my current rose bush, which is a silver ghost shrub rose. I'm considering getting a rose named 'Cardinal Richelieu', just because I love the name, but will purple flowers go with white?

Oh! The decisions!

Anyway, away from that. How has my bank holiday weekend been?

Absolutely lovely.

First there was my Saturday, when I met up with Matt Hope and was generally social )

Sunday was a day of gaming )

There is some rambling about the dungeon bashes I have run in here too )

I've also been having other random gaming ideas )

And today I've been gardening and soon will be social )

I hope everyone else has had a lovely weekend. Feel free to tell me about it. I always like to know...

*I had watched Resident Evil shortly before statting that base. The more time PCs spend there, the more apparent this becomes. It may be just as well that the game is ending soon, as I think I'll get throttled if anyone ever makes it down to the subterranean levels.

I asked here for story requests. And I am still turning all these stories over in my mind, but I'm slow to write and tend to get distracted. As such, these are taking a while. One day, I'll write them all. Anyway, [livejournal.com profile] twicedead gave me the words 'dark' 'shapes' and asked me to write about Tegan, my ZG Mage. And today I had an idea. The story is about a kinfolk Awakening, turning into a Mage, and how it changes everything in her mind.

It's been a busy weekend.

We lost our venue for the weekend at the last minute, so the Zeitgeist games were a bit of a roller coaster ride. We ended up at the Black Horse for most of them, which meant I had lovely food.

This evening ended with worry and fretfulness as poor [profile] lanfykins buggered her ankle and couldn't drive, so there was much rushing around to get her car to a safe place, and her safely tucked away too. Hopefully all is well.

However, to make all this better, the weather was lovely and sunny, and I had a moment of weakness and ordered a piggy bank on ebay. I'm finding piggy banks really cute at the moment. I don't know why.

Anyway, I attach a picture which I think sums up my weekend, and then I go to bed!

Good night!

In the absence of a proper update, I shall simply say that it's been fab to see [profile] headinclouds and [personal profile] red_phil, I really need to accept that the first Saturday is a bad bad day for me to try and do anything, as ZG larp stuff always somehow devours me whole, but I at least got to go and spend a couple of hours drinking cocktails with them, and also read entire chapters on DNA testing.

I also got distracted by cats, and wound up with some new catpics, and for those who have either not seen pics of my cats since they were kittens, are not familiar with their goblinlike appearance, or just find such things cute, I have put them up on my livejournal.

If you wish to pander to a sad old catlady, feel free to click here )

They are gorgeous little beasties, in my opinion.

Is it an act of love or malice when one's Significant Other gives one a Disney Store fancy dress 'Elizabeth Swann from Pirates of the Caribbean' dress for Christmas?

I'm not sure.

The damn thing fits perfectly.

I'm now having to gen up a new character for the next ZG game who might wear such a thing. Has anyone got any ideas? A Camarilla vampire who would wear an 18th century style dress? It's yellow, so lacking in the goth-y-ness.

As for the rest of my Christmas, I had a rather good day. [profile] pierot and I spent the morning together, and then the afternoon with [profile] wildrogue, [profile] imnotagoth and [profile] isalani, and it was lovely. Hopefully Elle has now forgiven me for the Frost Dragon incident.

I shall not list my hoard of loot in total, for that would take a very long time. The Elizabeth Swann dress from jez was mostly made up for by the gorgeous soft shawl and antique jewellery box he also got me (amongst other things). My family were fantastic as ever, and I had a great Christmas stocking and a selection of Good Presents, including a scanner from Dad (which jez and I may or may not have room for on the computer desk. Hmmmm...), chilli chocolate from Middle Sister (technically jez's Christmas present, but I've been nibbling) which I didn't know existed before, and a selection of history books from Youngest Sister.

I also now have more lush products than I know what to do with, which is always a good position to be in.

And now, it's Boxing Day. As John Lennon would say 'another year over'. I'm in a mellow mood today, feeling cheerful and not very pondersome which is rare for me. I am going to fiddle with photos, and in a while I shall cook breakfast.

Christmas has been good. And I am content.

This is one of my rare public entries about Zeitgeist.

Zeitgeist, for those who don't know, is a live action rpg set in the old style World of Darkness - the one White Wolf nuked. It's run indepedently of the Cam UK by myself, [profile] pierot and [profile] portilis. We currently have a Sabbat, Cam-Anarch and a Mage game (run by jez), a Garou game (run by me) and a Mummy game (run by Mike). We also have a Mortals game starting up soon, run by [profile] molez.

This weekend we have Mummy and Mortals running on the Saturday, and Mage and Sabbat running on the Sunday. It's a fun game, with a lot going on, and I know that jez, Mike and Andy would love some new players. The Magi are trying to get themselves established in London (and the Order of Hermes are still looking for their lost chantry), the Sabbat may be trying to storm Battersea Power Station, and the Mummies are probably doing Mummy-like things. The weekend after that (the first weekend of June), we have Garou and Cam-Anarch, which I KNOW some people want to come and play.

So if you're interested at all, have some kind of nostalgia for the old WoD, or just want to come and see me (*preen preen*) you would be very very welcome.

All games are held at the College Arms, which is on Store Street, just off the Tottenham Court Road.

'Twould be lovely to see folks.

*yawns*

I'm feeling really groggy this morning. I'm fairly sure this came from not having my mobile by the bed, thus leaving me with no idea what time it was. I then neurotically woke up when the sun came up, panicked I was about to oversleep, and then found out it was only 7 am and I was wide awake.

As [profile] pierot and I got in from ZG last night after midnight, this was maybe foolish.

I'm sitting here today trying to do my chemistry and struggling rather.

Some rambling about the difficulties of chemistry )

My weekend, by the way, was very pleasant. Saturday was spent in a combination of lunch with [personal profile] bringeroflight, [profile] molez and [profile] pierot, CCG games in the form of L5R with [profile] molez and then red wine and DVDs with [profile] ksirafai, [profile] pierot and [profile] molez. Sunday was all rpg type stuff, which was intense, but very very tiring.

ZG stuff. Skip if you don't play/aren't interested in a round up of the games )

And now, on to the rest of today. I'll be heading out to meet [profile] imagesandwords for a little while, and then spending this evening doing more chemistry.

*sighs*

It isn't that I don't find the chemistry interesting. Right now, it's that I just don't understand the goddamn questions!

*whimper to fade*

Just a reminder - it's Zeitgeist Cam-Anarch this Sunday at the College Arms. Time in is around 4.30 pm and time out is around 9.30 pm. It's a special session, with the Justicar sending out messages and zombies roaming the city.

If you are a Zeitgeist player it would be very cool if you could turn up. In other news, I also know that jez needs NPCs, so if you or anyone you know is:

a) not a zeitgeist player, but has a free Sunday afternoon.
b) not a zeitgeist player, but would like to give it a go and are able to try an NPC first
c) a zeitgeist player who has just lost a character/normally only plays the other games

then get in touch! You'll be loved.

Hope to see as many people as possible then!

Right.

[profile] pierot and I sat down today and worked out our approvals list for Zeitgeist Garou. Basically, everything is either:

  • Banned - Just no. Really. Behave. Now.

  • Highly restricted - If you come up with a really good concept we will talk about it.

  • Restricted - Come up with a good background and it'll depend on numbers etc already in the game. Unlikely to be more than one of this creature type in game.

  • Allowed - Gen up a PC and have fun!


The banned stuff is mostly comprised of creature types which have either been described as dead and extinct, are basically antagonists instead of protagonists within this venue, or really could not exist in the game setting, such as the Pumonca who's yava states that they die if they leave America.

Everything else is open to discussion. As another warning, the decision we've made is that we're going to allow Garou, Kinfolk and one corax (linked to the Tower of London) into play at first, and after that there will be one fera slot open for every ten garou characters that we have designed and brought into play.

We've also talked about starting rank. Cliath will be the base, with three people needed to make you a fostern, five for adren, nine for athro and thirteen for elder. Athro and Elder are going to be restricted on top of that. That doesn't mean 'no' - it means 'you need a background and a good reason'. Homid is not restricted - metis and lupus are restricted insomuch as we want at least 50% of the game to be homid, and if that starts to go by the by then we'll cut back on non-homid breed.

There are pretty much no banned totems etc - all pack totems are open, pending discussion with me and jez. Anything big has to be run past both of us.

Anyway, here is the list )

In other news, the next Zeitgeist Cam-Anarch game is going to be at the College Arms, timing in at about 5 pm and time out at 9.30 pm. The nearest tube station is Tottenham Court Road, and I'm sure most of you have been there in the past.

See you then!

Today and yesterday [profile] pierot and I started bouncing ideas for Zeitgeist Garou.

As some of you may know, I've been running the NPC Garou in London, and as such have designed a caern, and written some back history, and have a couple of NPCs wandering around the place. Jez is also coming to the conclusion that there are limits on how many games one man can run alone. He is, however, a complete control freak and doesn't want to leave me on my own, and so we are going to be running Zeigeist Garou together.

It's almost sweet, right? Either that or nauseating and cloying. I'm not sure which.

Anyway, Zeitgeist Garou.

It is meant to be based around a low level city caern, one which has recently been scouted out by a couple of packs. Influences for the game so far include Underworld (I rather like the werewolves in it - the ones who crawl through the underground, and have lairs underneath the city), Neverwhere (as is the case with all good London based larps) and probably a fair chunk of local urban myth and British folk lore. I'm definitely going for a more down-and-dirty, urban, slightly outcast feel to the game than most werewolf larps - the good and the glorious don't often come live as urrah, in my world. It will have the kind of open character generation that the other games have had, but I personally am very keen on Bone Gnawers, Glasswalkers, Fianna, Get of Fenris and Silver Fangs as the local British tribes. It will be possible to buy starting rank, but it will be expensive. There may also be a level of ST approval/control over whether or not an insta-Elder/insta-Athro etc is allowed.

Kinfolk are, as always, loved and appreciated. But they shouldn't all have numina. Some fera will be allowed, in small numbers, but will be restricted. I'm guessing some corax will be welcomed, but other races will need negotiation.

Any other questions? Opinions? Bribes?
