Get Lost!

Warning, this post uses the "C" word. :)

As some of you will be aware, I am a member of the Camarilla (see, I told you I used the "C" word). For those who don't know, the Camarilla is White Wolf's official fan club and is the organisation that runs "sanctioned" Live Action Roleplaying games (LARP) all over the world.

I used to be a Camarilla member back in Brisbane, around the year 2000 or so, but left due to dickheads.

Melbourne has a much lower dickhead quotient, so I rejoined again though not to be a player. Up till recently I was just an Assistant Storyteller for merinnan running the Werewolf: The Forsaken game. When Changeling: The Lost was released I read it and decided that I wanted to run this game.

As a result I volunteered to be the Venue Storyteller (VST) for the Changeling Venue for the Melbourne Camarilla. I submitted the VSS (Venue Style Sheet - the official document that gives the basic details for the Venue. Each game has one and defines mood, theme, etc) in October, but due to the universe not liking the Domain Storyteller (the guy who looks after the storyteller side of things for the entirety of Melbourne) it got delayed. Theoretically it should be approved today or tomorrow, and as a result the first Changeling game for the Melbourne Camarilla will be help tomorrow night.

So, if you are interested in Live Action and are interested in Changeling: The Lost, you might be interested in coming along.

It will be held from 7pm till 11pm at the Fawkner Gardens in Melbourne, just off St Kilda Road. People might want to look at all the information I've put together for the Changeling Venue in Melbourne if they have any interest.

Due to the fact I am currently installing software on my work machine, I don't want to open a web browser until it's finished, otherwise I would include the in character invite and other important information. I'll edit this once I get a chance to look at that stuff again.

Things are bit rushed, but I think it will all work out well. So, come along and get Lost with me! :)

Edit: The actual write up on the Melbourne Camarilla site is here.

Oh you poor, poor thing.

Back in the day, I was the one who started the first Changeling chapter of the Camarilla. It was, all in all, also the reason why I left the Camarilla.

I wish you all the luck I didn't have. :)

Ah! The C Word! *hides*
I wish I could have the shiny hope of goodness but I'm afraid I'm old and wary.
I hope it goes well. =)

Well, that is a dirty little secret!

Like miss_rynn, I was involved in the first attempt to get Changeling to work in Melbourne about ten years ago. It ended as an absolute debacle and leaving that organisation was one of the better decisions I made, along with crazyjane13.

I did, however, produce two things during that brief period which I'm still rather pleased with. One was a plan by which a Changeling force could annihilate a Vampire city (estimated Kindred fatalities at around 80% during the first strike). The other was City Chess, which was guaranteed to drive plotting amongst players to a most excellent extent.

I hope you have more fun than we did, but I won't be rejoining.

Old WoD Changelings were horribly over-powered to anyone with a decent imagination. They were fun!

It should be fun, because if it isn't, I'll be walking away without so much as an apology.

I haven't looked at any of the new WoD stuff, so I've got no level of comparison. All my scheming required, though, was that first level telekinesis power and that third level scrying power. If those ones, or similar, are still available then I do recall the details of my nasty little scheme.

Although, having said that, my character back then was an Unseelie Sidhe of the Shadow Court (House Ailil, of course) allied with a Lasombra in the Sabbat. My character was masquerading as a Seelie member of House Fiona and a ghoul of the Lasombra, who was masquerading as a Ventrue.

I think we came up with the most vicious plan, but sevaine still scores major points for managing to get a Bloodhunt called against his character without having put in an appearance at a single session. All it took was some Domination, some drugs (speed, I think), a truck driver, a petrol tanker and, of course, the Tremere haven.

There was some fun stuff early on, but unfortunately the organisational structure itself tended towards being unable to maintain that.

Yay! Lost! Tomorrow will be fun :-)

Now I need to dig out the first draft of the Icebound Heart Fairest I made when Lost first came out, and see what I have to change around to fit in with the rules and such.

And I got costume stuff today! Stick-on jewels for the tears, white nailpolich and lip gloss, black-and-white top to go with the black skirt I already had...it's going to be fun :-)

Hope you have better luck than I did. Back in the day, I ran an NPC Sabbat Pack and was ST for Changeling : the Dreaming. Sorted out rules and everything.

Right up until we got told from on high it wasn't possible to have a Changeling troupe, and our Sabbat pack made people pout.

At which point, hasimir and I left.

From what you wrote, though, it sounds like the asshats have gone - so I hope it works out well!

For some reason, I didn't read this post properly yesterdy. I wish I had. I look forward to hearing how it went.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
