In Safety's Shadow

Masked Maiden
shadow sass

Skull Kid awakes from a dream were he is not quite himself, defeating a werewolf with a roman short sword. His hatred of the moon beasts snaps him back to reality as his dream self wears the vanquished foes skin, something HE would never himself do. He shown to the door of Evening Star by Jaque who tells him theres a cab waiting. Skull Kid commands to go to the Masked Maiden and the lasombra followeds a few cars behind.

Once at the club the Malkavian attempts to free a woman of her seemingly looser date by pushing him aside and therefore skipping the line but Jaque steps in and stops a potential scene. Ly, the vampire date of this man, shares some dom/sub small talk after Jaque gets the group inside (the bouncer does not look at her ass cuz he was slipped some money). After a brief, shadow filled stand off, Jaque goes to dance after Skull Kid decides to play pool. He impresses two men playing by juggling the billiard balls on his own table. Attempting to drop them and have them find their holes Jaque assists with the tendrils, as way of apology. The two cheat their way through a game and win, though it is contested by the two men who want to take it outside. outside does not work out for them, seeing the manifestation of the abyss both, while under the influence of alcohol suffer fatal heart attacks and the keys to their motorcycles are taken. Skull Kid throws them in the dumpster.

Back inside, Vincent’s voice comes on the microphone as a cabaret starts. (Bonus to SK for his collidescope of confectionary vs carnival of kink) Vincent chooses vampyres to come taste his willing dancers, and put on a show. Skull kid and Jaque of course are invited on stage and the Malkavian is introduced by Vincent as the singer and guitarist of a band that will be playing in the near future.

Meeting at Evening Star

The guy referring to himself as Diablo has entered Santa Ana, and after a few days, made an introduction to Viper, and after some polite sass and insults, may have found someone to do business with. Learning little in the crowded casino, he did hear descriptions of Viper and Royce from Vincent while riding in the elevator. He is waiting on his human contact to return from vacation.

Jaque invited skull Kid to the casino for the first time, where he was offered by Viper to play a gig, once Morecastle the Magician’s performances end. He was also sassed by the witty businessman. Skull Kid asked Jaque for a favor and was asked to take her blood, bringing him one step into the mystical bonding. He played masterful piano, for no one but himself just before sunrise, truly moving Vincent and the two human cleaning crew members.

All players encountered Vincent, and each new member to the city has been given the card for his BDSM club, the Masked Maiden.

Welcome to your campaign!
A blog for your campaign

Wondering how to get started? Here are a few tips:

1. Invite your players

Invite them with either their email address or their Obsidian Portal username.

2. Edit your home page

Make a few changes to the home page and give people an idea of what your campaign is about. That will let people know you’re serious and not just playing with the system.

3. Choose a theme

If you want to set a specific mood for your campaign, we have several backgrounds to choose from. Accentuate it by creating a top banner image.

4. Create some NPCs

Characters form the core of every campaign, so take a few minutes to list out the major NPCs in your campaign.

A quick tip: The “+” icon in the top right of every section is how to add a new item, whether it’s a new character or adventure log post, or anything else.

5. Write your first Adventure Log post

The adventure log is where you list the sessions and adventures your party has been on, but for now, we suggest doing a very light “story so far” post. Just give a brief overview of what the party has done up to this point. After each future session, create a new post detailing that night’s adventures.

One final tip: Don’t stress about making your Obsidian Portal campaign look perfect. Instead, just make it work for you and your group. If everyone is having fun, then you’re using Obsidian Portal exactly as it was designed, even if your adventure log isn’t always up to date or your characters don’t all have portrait pictures.

That’s it! The rest is up to your and your players.
