I just wanted to point out that mine was the first thread updated. And I will ignore any attempts to convince me "it was the easiest to do" or other things that don't imply that I'm the most awesome.

Your "facts" can't hurt me, so don't even try.

Welcome to the game, Malachi. I am currently at my parents' property and when I get back to Brisbane I will update the game.

Welcome to Lordenshaw City, Malachi. Interesting trick, using the same ID for both Rogue Trader and here. It's amazingly elegant to just have both characters coincidentally have the same name. If I'd thought about it, that approach could have saved me having a bunch of different logins.

New non-player characters in the Dramatis Personae thread. Note that there are still a few more to place. Including Reginald Reginald.

Just thought I'd mention this over here:

Unfortunately, due to my work becoming extremely busy, my extended break that will leave me limited net access for six weeks, and the frequent disruptions to the game, I am unable to continue running Vampire: the Requiem. The only time I can manage RP is with my tabletop group, and we will soon be starting a World of Darkness campaign. However, there will be no time to run a WoD forum game. I am very sorry for the constant disruptions, as I had one of the best group of players ever.

Avatar, please do not hide this forum until I salvage the writing - I need to copy a lot of my work to a file.

That's a great shame. For those players who did not know, I was playing Hideo Nishi, the Japanese photographer/soon-to-become vampire-hunter. Playing the character was a lot of fun for me, and I was hugely impressed by the great effort Lore put into this game and his setting.

I'd like to be the first to thank Lore for running the game.

I will miss following this game. It was incredibly addictive.
Thanks for some incredible storylines, Lore.

I would love to know what you were planning long term for the story, if not the individual characters...

Montresor, I suspected Hideo was you.
Who else on the Watch could play a Japanese character so authentically? Especially one who seems to not be a fan of English haiku... ;)

But a Vampire Hunter? I didn't know players of this campaign were allowed to choose to play characters other than vampires. I would have really looked forward to seeing how a different type of character was played by someone other than the StoryTeller.

I'll miss playing that character, and I would have done so over the last two months more if I had of had net connection from my room (my comp had the password I couldn't remember). Maybe he'll show up in something else one day.

Anyway, I don't like the idea of playing vampires and werewolves and such because (for me at least) it robs fantastic archetypes of their mystery and horror and makes them into something more comic-book. So, the idea of playing a mortal was infinitely more appealing to me than an immortal.

aye.
I remember there was a little of that discussion when we were initially fleshing out the Sisters of Solace for Borderlands, since the source that I was drawing upon for them was a vampire short story by Stephen King...

Lore,

I'm also very interested to know what the plans were, since I won't find out about them in-game.
