UktenasymbolAs the masses rush across the planet – app in hand – in search of small animals to enslave, this web enhancement considers how such a fad could be positioned into the World of Darkness (specifically the setting for Werewolf: the Apocalypse).

It provides a precis of the Pentex involvement and how the app has been integrated into the business practices of some of the company’s subsidiaries, as well as suggesting some plot hooks for Storytellers.

Whilst this is written for the Werewolf: the Apocalypse setting, it could easily be re-purposed for any of the World of Darkness lines.

UktenasymbolIn Episode 22 of the Midnight Express Podcast, Pete and I discussed Samuel Haight, ‘The Skinner’ from Werewolf: the Apocalypse.  Presented here is a distillation of chronicle ideas to use the most infamous of Garou in your own chronicle.  These ideas position Haight as a possible saviour of the Garou Nation, and the Rite of Sacred Rebirth as a desperate weapon against the Wyrm.

In the wake of our last Web Enhancement, Episode 19 of the Midnight Express Podcast featured the Knights of the Cold Watch from the Changeling: the Dreaming source book Shadow Court.

This web enhancement offers three developed NPCs with plot hooks for your old World of Darkness chronicle.  Each personality has background, role-playing hints and ideas for short-term stories or longer chronicles.

LotNAs a new initiative for the Midnight Express Podcast, we’ll produce web enhancements for some episodes starting from this month.  These short articles are designed to present an NPC, plot hooks, locations, or any other idea that can be easily used in your own chronicle or spark a story for a longer-term game.

The first is from Episode 17, and features the Daughter of Cacophony used in the Shard segment of the episode.  It doesn’t provide stats, but does cover her background, role-playing hints, and plot ideas for vampire chronicles, and for hunters.

Our next enhancement will be Changeling-themed, and should be out concurrently with Episode 20.

MagecoverOf all the Storyteller system games, Mage has perhaps the greatest affinity with the pursuit of knowledge.  The resources and locations of the chronicle need to reflect this.  One asset to the chronicle is the presence of a local (or nearby) university that can serve a range of functions from information resource, to employer, or even recruiting ground for the next generation of Ascension warriors.  This article aims to outline some of the uses of the university for Mages that can be applied to both Tradition- and Technocratic-based stories.

I have used some of the material on Mr Gone’s site.  You can support this fantastic site by using the links on it the next time you purchase WoD products.  Every little bit helps to keep this accessible to the community (I’m not affiliated with Mr Gone, but I do feel strongly about supporting those folk who provide a service like this).
