Happy New Year Patrons of the Underground!

Midwinter is this week, and we’re incredibly excited to be bringing amazing new event games and officially launching Werewolf: The Apocalypse! We also have something wonderful planned for our traditional event game shwag, so we can’t wait to see you all.

In the meantime, here are the IC teasers for our games…

Werewolf

Winds of change are blowing into Milwaukee… A Child of Gaia by the name of “Cool Lake Breeze” has coordinated with high-ranking members of the Concordat of Stars and the Sanctum of Gaia in an effort to realize a major step toward more cooperation amongst the fractured garou. Bearing the spark of hope, they bring with them the seed necessary for a shard caern to be created in Milwaukee as a bastion of Gaia. This seed represents the fragility and need to protect our last glimmers of hope, our sole purpose: to see the return of the Wyld and stave off the forces of the Wyrm. But while hope is yet within our grasp, those that would see that light snuffed out linger still on the edges of our best efforts. We must be wary that they do not turn our chance at minor success into monumental failure…

Sabbat

The din of the previous year still echoes the death of a Cardinal, the fall and liberation of a Diocese, and the Sanctification of a new Cardinal by the Regent himself. Now, a meeting of the Prisci has been called in the dead of winter in Milwaukee, and concern has been raised on the survival of the Sect. Whispers in the night say that the Serpents have begun a ritual that will bring about the end of days; the Sword is wary of such rumors, but do they dare ignore this one?

Cam/Anarch/IA

Many things move in the shadows, and they whisper rumors in the darkness. Kindred travel to Milwaukee as the Prince holds a gathering to mourn kindred lost, while Di Zagreb plans a gala to celebrate the alliance of all pillar clans. However, the friendly exterior is of a facade. Tales spread of the Tremere Justicar presenting a vague gift to Hardestadt, which is gaining the attention of many rival factions. The Anarchs have their own worries, as a sister of the Movement claims to have valuable information on a new enemy. The Independent Alliance view all these stories with hungry eyes, as these events can be twisted to suit their own ambitions. The stage is set for large changes and massive consequences. One thing is on everyone’s mind: Opportunity. These nights are uncertain, and many reach out to mold them to their own ends. What will you do?

 

Greeting, Patrons of the Underground!

Just a quick note to let you all know we’ve done a major update to our Troupe List on the website. We’re excited to have brought on several new troupes so far in 2016, including Olympia, Winston Salem, Little Rock, Joplin, Tulsa and a game in Japan!

Find it on our website here!

Patrons of the Underground,

We have heard from a lot of patrons that they are interested in playing Sabbat and Blood & Betrayal (the BNS game) in Las Vegas, and that these two events are at the same time.

In response to this, we are switching the UT out of character social and the UT Sabbat game. This enables Sabbat players to not miss their game should they want to play in B&B.

As such, our LVbN schedule is now:

  • Thursday Night: UT Sabbat in the Sky Villa
  • Friday Night: UT Out of Character Social in the Sky Villa
  • Saturday Night: UT Camarilla/Anarch in the Sky Villa

Thanks!

EDIT: This position is now filled. Thank you all!

 

Patrons of the Underground, are you an organized, creative person who wants to help connect, lead and organize our Sabbat games? We’re currently looking for someone who would be interested in being our Sabbat Organizational Storyteller.

The Sabbat Organizational Storyteller is an administrator and member of the content management team. The Sabbat OST is the primary point of contact for all Lead Storytellers in the Sabbat Venue for Underground Theater. Any Sabbat Lead Storyteller may reach out to the Sabbat OST to receive clarification on rules questions from the content management team or for assistance in plots. The OST works with LSTs to prepare selected plots for elevation to a regional, national or organizational level story. The OST also works with the Canon and Continuity Storyteller in the management and implementation of all canon NPCs, as well as NPCs or institutions whose actions have a massive effect above the city level of the troupe (such as The President of the United States, The Chancellor of Germany, the FBI, or the CIA). The OST is also responsible for the creation and running of the Sabbat Venue’s five year national plot, attending regular Content Team meetings with the Vice President, Canon and Continuity Storyteller, and Camarilla/Anarch Organizational Storyteller, and other duties as assigned by the Vice President.

If you’re interested in helping us make this organization an amazing place to play Sabbat, please send your gaming resume (including both player and storyteller experience) to vicepresident@undergroundtheater.org
