"All that I am and all that I have become can be laid at her feet. Had she chosen us over a confounded hollowed belief, we would have been able to share a love seldom found in this world. I will show her no leniency in the nights to come. My judgment shall be swift and final. But still I find the question creeping in the back of my mind: has she forsaken me for all time?"
-Peiter Von Khorvich

% until plot is ready: - 100%
% of plot completed in game: - 100%
Recommended Levels: - all
Recommended Classes: - all, except Paladin*
Alignment: - all, except good*
Risk Level: - Differing consequences can be expected from differing circumstances; risks can range from very low to very high.
Adventure type: - Series of mini-events (and potentially major events) that are shaped by the previous outcomes of events. Variable in scope and depth.
How to get involved: (OOC:) Send DM Nocturne or DM Strigoi a PM expressing your interest and a quick description of your character. (IC:) Find a way to catch the attention of darker individuals.

Synapse:
Undying is a two DM joint-run plotline (DM Nocturne/DM Strigoi) which caters to players who enjoy the darker and dreary gothic romances and conflicts. Most of the intended scenarios will be subtle in nature and less obvious in day-to-day life. Undead rivalry and politics, stealth and combat quests, loyalty and betrayal, mysterious and great powers moving under the veil of Old Night are possibilities. Underworld influences as well as foreign and domestic affairs can mold and shape certain aspects of the setting in the longer term.
*: Though paladins and good aligned PCs are not mainly involved, there may be later situations that call upon champions of good.

DM appreciations:

  • Out-of-the-box/out-of-game-mechanic thinking is welcome. 'Winning' mindsets are not.
  • Player acceptance of IC consequences (positive and negative) is highly valued.
  • Mature content is to be expected. Please advise if you are under the age of 18 when you are involved.
  • Characters are rewarded based on roleplay effort and endurance.

Information subject to change.

Season 1 resolved.

NCE 2014, my participation in this event will be aiding and facilitating a AMPC lead Wererat Gang.


The Theme,

The Sewers of Vallaki are notorious for the wicked dangers that dwell beneath the very feet of civilization. The tunnels have long been the territory of roaming groups of outlaw cultists, womb freaks and gangs of ferocious wererats.  

If your interested and want more back ground information to write up your AMPC application contact me by PM.

Three Words.
A story directed towards the occult and the investigation into mysterious esoteric events.


// I am looking for evil wizard types and heroes to oppose them. Yes, "Three Words" is an allusion to a specific Ravenloft module/event.

Memories of Darkness

For many years I have toiled in his shadow. He who has cursed us, all of us - poisoned this land with his betrayal and lies.
Many alliances I have been forced to make, with creatures human and otherwise. Every time I have been thwarted in my noble goals. Each time I have suffered for my cause, but I have never wavered!
But tonight is the night of my vindication, for fate has bestowed upon me what I deserve. Tonight, I claim what I have worked so hard to achieve.
Castle Ravenloft is mine. Barovia is mine. It's people are mine.
My name is Countess Lyssa Von Zarovich.
There shall be a brave new future for Barovia's people now free from the tyrant's hand.
From this day forward, Strahd Von Zarovich shall be but a memory...

- Excerpt from the personal journal of Lyssa Von Zarovich

% of plot completed in game: 0%
Recommended Levels: All
Recommended Classes: Any
Risk Level: Varies
What kind of Adventure?: Mystery, Conspiracy

Thanks to everyone who expressed an interest in getting involved in the plot! Sadly, I could not include everyone who wanted to be involved, due to a number of factors such as party size/composition, level, etc. I have notified those who shall be taking part this time.

A reminder (and disclaimer) to those getting heavily involved with this plot, that entering Castle Ravenloft is a high risk environment with the possibility of permanent closure.

For all players interested in the Silver Spring
« Reply #15 on: December 29, 2016, 06:37:09 PM »
I'm pleased to announce that this campaign will begin in the next two weeks. Those who are interested in specific updates regarding Krofburg and the campaign can sign up here, where there will also be specific forums for each faction to use to communicate with each other. Please post in the appropriate thread there.

In the meantime, those interested in being involved should be in and around Krofburg whenever possible over the next two weeks. There will be a few kickoff events in the afternoons and evenings EST, but they will involve spontaneous groups and not crowds. The Krofburg update itself, including new areas, dungeons, quests, and special content for outcast characters and roleplay, will be going in after the first of these events.

Please contact me here or on Discord if you have any questions. I will not reveal details of the new content but I am happy to talk about concepts and themes for new characters in the plot.

The Great Unraveling
"This is what the beginning of the end of the world will look like”

On the precipice of the foretold Time of Unparalleled Darkness many who have given stock to Bastion Raines' prophecy have their own understandings and interpretations of how it shall come about and how to prepare for the fast approaching terror that comes. Some whisper there are those who see no reason to wait. Why wait when you could bring it forth immediately?

After all, Ezra will recognize her own when the end comes.

% until plot is ready: 70%
% of plot completed in game: 0%
Intended Levels: 5-10
Recommended Classes: Any, casters should be cautious.
Alignment: Good-aligned may have some difficulty.
Risk Level: Medium-High
What kind of Adventure?: Mystery, The Occult, Ezrite and Borcan politics
How to get involved?: Be in or aorund the Vallaki or Wachter areas. Send me a PM with your character name, login, level, timezone, and rough hours you can be on.
