cowboy!!!

next game idea

I am about to run my next session of WoD this week, and I have come up with a great idea to throw at my players.

So far, everything they have seen has been very subtle. Almost mundane infact. So much so, that when I confronted them with an unseen entity that screamed like a banshee and caused the glass ceiling above them to shatter, they became genuinely scared.

Anyway, back to my idea.

Next game, I want to start throwing a lot more phenomena at them. Big scary shadows, strange dripping water, sudden howling winds ect. And I want to make them BIG and BAD!

But, I don’t want them to take away from the slow subtle horror I have been building. so, what I intend to do is throw all this unseen nasty at them, and towards the end of the session, have them all wake up from a shared dream experience.

What are people’s opinions on this concept?

Yui Holidays

And now for something completely different...

Has anyone here ever held IC holiday parties or purchased or made holiday gifts for people in their RP groups?

A number of Christmases ago, I made all of my players "My character did [x] and all I got was this lousy T-shirt!" T-shirts, each based on something his particular PC had done in the game. ("My character took out an evil sorceress..." and so on).
