    Star Scenes

    Unless an ST is running a plot Shards are social Scenes.


    No Reveals
    • This includes tossing around powers.
    • Exception(s) are Hardening Masks and Obfuscate 2. Vampires are expected to Blush.
    Open Scenes, Public Locations
    • All threads in the City Shards Forum are to be open scenes and publicly accessible locations. These may lead to private Scenes, which should be approved by the participating venue's HSTs for PM or Social Group Scenes.
    • If the location is one of our player owned Sites, please do not take liberties; i.e. claiming an entire banquet room of another player's restaurant.
    • If it is NOT a Site, then the Scene needs to be at a completely neutral location. Not a location where one character works, etc. This keep the Scene neutral and no one derives a benefit which they haven't paid for.
    • Werewolves should be aware of what territory the scene is taking place in. If it is in another pack's territory you are trespassing, unless you have gotten permission in advance.
    Participation
    • The scenes will enter continuity when they complete - just like other non-sticky's.
    • Your character may be a total of 2 City Shards at the same time.
    • Shards will last one month so that they may enter continuity. Expect the threads to be closed at the end of the month.
    • When posting a scene please specify a time of day. If a time is not specified and a vampire shows up it is assumed to be after dark.
    • Please play in your chosen venue for six month before opening a Shard. You're still welcome to enter ones other players have created.
    • Characters must be recognized by their venue's hierarchy, or in the process of being recognized, to participate. Shards aren't an outlet for Lone Wolves.
    • Shards can be used for mentoring (teaching Fighting Styles, etc), but only if both venues follow the same restrictions for gaining such.
    • You must have a 'real' avatar/playby. No anime, art, etc.
    If you have any questions, please reach out to a member of the Edge of Darkness Staff. Feel free to post questions or clarification in this thread. Be good to one another

    Shades are an experimental type of 'half' character -- one that isn't involved in regular venues, doesn't have a full character sheet, or earn XP. Other than that, it's whatever you want them to be (although supernatural Shades should be limited to Changeling, Mage, Vampire, or Werewolf). They can even be retired characters or characters from closed games, or simply character concepts you never got around to finishing or want to try on for size.

    Shades will only be featured in Shards, although they're more than welcome to 'graduate' into full-blown toons and go through the Character Approval process

    The standard character limit does not apply to Shades.

    Even though Shards should be mostly social, in case a Shade needs a dice pool or wants to be above average (Striking Looks, etc), here are the nuts and bolts:
    1. Assume that all Atts are 2
    2. Assume any Skill test runs that Skill at 1
    3. No 'free' chargen Merits
    3. 3 discretionary 'dots' to put anywhere (this is how to pay for Merits)

    So much like the current Retainer system, these 'universal' dots could be spent, say 1 for PRE (for 3) and 2 for SL (for SL2), giving you a good-looking, personable halfsie. Or 2 for STR and 1 for Brawl if it's a cage fight (total dice pool 6). Or 2 for STR and 1 for a FS maneuver.
    Don't hate the player, hate the game.
