Should ease off next week then we can get back to the game. Thanks for the patience gentlemen.


Not a problem, I am moving slowly anyway as I am so busy at work lately.


Never got a chance to get to it Caps, will try to do it this wek.


I will look through books to make sure I dont have a better option than what I already picked n finalize this weekend.

Xing Shi

He brings you to your original safehouse to rest for the evening. As you lay down to rest he begins to tell you of the traditions of the Kindred - I will tell you what pages to reference in the book when I have moment.

Alessandro Khadaji

Mario shrugs and looks at Maurizio who also shrugs, "Never heard of her, we will see what we can see Signore..."


Venice by Night – Monday March 10, 1309

Michael Santo

"Send written messages to this building addressed to Claudius Giovanni. I will send the gentleman to your boathouse. A pleasure Signore Santo".

He stands gesturing you out the door behind you which is now open.

Xing Shi

4 more Blood Points

He drops the second body from which you drank.

"Now you must lick the wounds".

Once that is done he slashes both men on the necks where you drank. Blood leaks from each man.

"There is sufficient blood to make this all look like a fight to the death. This is how we must stage all of our feeding habits whenever possible. For not only must the mortals be unaware of our presence, so too must we move as ghosts among our own kind".

"Come, let us seek shelter from the sun as the night grows short. We shall discuss more tomorrow".


Venice by Night – Monday March 10, 1309

Michael Santo

"Yes, we shall use your services as needed. Your contact with this Volkov has me concerned. I know of someone who would be willing to assist you but his price is quite high..."


Venice by Night – Monday March 10, 1309

Xing Shi

You gain 4 blood points.

"Very good my dear. Now this one, he still lives so your self-control must be iron. Do not kill him".

Self Control roll and DRINK!


Venice by Night – Monday March 10, 1309

Alessandro Khadaji

"Very well, what do you seek my new friend?" asks Maurizio.


Venice by Night – Monday March 10, 1309

Andrew the Hardy

Luag nods to the Teutons and shakes his head. "We have no further news for you. Donnach sleeps off spirits in the room you share, I just dragged the oaf in there before you arrived. I will go out and return, our diplomat meets with the French now".

He leaves, "How many of you are there?" asks Baldemar.


Venice by Night – Monday March 10, 1309

Michele Querini

"You will send an emissary to this city to meet with the contact. You must have some fop you can utilize".


Feelin sick, will respond to the posts by Wednesday to keep things going.


Finally, up and running again!


Venice by Night – Monday March 10, 1309

Michele Querini

Hans is silent for a moment. "This is dangerous news the likes of which was not understood by Sadir".

Hans is silent for some time...


Venice by Night – Monday March 10, 1309

Andrew the Hardy

All agree to the proposal.

Federico lounges in your common area between rooms as you speak freely with the two Knights.

Before either can respond to you, Luag steps out of the room that you share.

"Well met! How fare you Andrew and Federico?"

Andrew:
Remember you have a meeting with the Templar this evening as well.


Venice by Night – Monday March 10, 1309

Alessandro Khadaji

They give you an amount which seems reasonable though at the same time quite small for what these women may have to endure.

"Agreed?" queries Maurizio.


Venice by Night – Monday March 10, 1309

Michael Santo

"Knowledge after the fact is sufficient for my purposes".

Pietro contemplates what you say for a moment, "Volkov eh? I have heard this name before. This is not a small feat you would ask of myself and my resources. Indeed, it is worth more than the information you would be supplying to me. For reasons I will not discuss further, I must say no to your proposal. I can guarantee you more business if such an arrangement is sufficient payment..."


Venice by Night – Monday March 10, 1309

Xing Shi

No Name smiles, "Sup lightly from the one on the ground, your first kill. Well in your new life anyway" he adds.

DRINK!


Oi, what a crappy weekend. Anyway, work will be slowing down for me this week so I should be able to update this week at work. Thank god, I am starting to forget what the heck is going on in the various storylines!


Still here. Friday is looking like the most likely time for me to review my notes and most recent posts and update the thread.

No extra XP I am afraid :-(


Where you goin Caps?


Work is piling up instead of disappearing. At any rate, I will try to post on Sunday night as I have been very delinquent here. Bad ST!

On the bright side, I pledged for the V20 DA book so I will see what rules differ on that side as we move forward with the campaign.

Thanks for your patience folks!


Can't catch a few spare minutes.

Will post when I can! :-(


Sorry Gents still in the weeds over here.

By Wednesday work will have cleared out a bit and I will get back to normal posting.


Sorry been busy. Will try to post by tomorrow!


Venice by Night – Monday March 10, 1309

Alessandro Khadaji

"Four at the moment", Mario grins.


Venice by Night – Monday March 10, 1309

Xing Shi

Your blade makes short work of your fleeing foe.

From behind you hear the voice of No Name, [b] "Drag him back here while he still has life left". [/b[

As you turn you see No Name has the other man in a choke hold the man squirms clearly about ready to lose consciousness.


Venice by Night – Monday March 10, 1309

Andrew the Hardy

"Best we discuss such things once we return to our humble abode Andrew", replies Sir Martin.

Federico nods in response to your statement.

Within ten minutes a Gondola comes by to pick up your band and bring you back to the streets of the city. You all walk in silence...

Where do you head?


Venice by Night – Monday March 10, 1309

Michael Santo

I will assume you gave the name of the Inn as part of your response.

Pietro smiles, "Excellent. How the proceedings went is less interesting to me than the final destinations. Provide me with those for each shipment and I will double your fee, now what was your fee?"


Venice by Night – Monday March 10, 1309

Alessandro Khadaji

"For all of them or just one?" is the response.


Will update the thread at some point this week, been very busy.


Sweet. Thanks Talomyr. I will have to check it out!


Venice by Night – Monday March 10, 1309

Xing Shi

Xing you catch him as he is about to hit the street, success brings him down, failure allows him to escape.

You do not know what is taking place behind you...


Venice by Night – Monday March 10, 1309

Xing Shi

That is fine and you retain control. You passed two or three, long enough to maintain control which was the point of the exercise.

You swing your blade and it goes wide of the mark.

The Thug not even noticing you once again stabs at No Name.

ST Shadow ONLY:
Attack Dagger 5d10 ⇒ (3, 3, 10, 5, 7) = 28 Damage 4d10 ⇒ (9, 9, 9, 1) = 28 No Name Soak if necessary 6d10 ⇒ (7, 4, 3, 2, 9, 1) = 26

This time the dagger finds a home in No Name's shoulder.

Having finally gained the attention he sought after, the darkness coming from No Name's mouth vanishes and he turns on the overeager thug.

ST Shadow ONLY:
No Name Backhand 7d10 ⇒ (8, 1, 6, 8, 1, 4, 9) = 37 Damage 3d10 + 2 ⇒ (3, 1, 2) + 2 = 8 Thug Soak 3d10 ⇒ (6, 5, 7) = 18

To No Name's surprise the Thug ducks the swipe!

Xing you are up, the first thug is about 15' from the end of the alley. By the end of next round he may even be able to reach the street beyond the dark alley. Or you can continue to attack the Thug who has his back, foolishly, to you.


Venice by Night – Monday March 10, 1309

Alessandro Khadaji

Mario nearly snarls, "Who are you to speak to me in this manner? We have recently received a wind fall. If you must know I feel this type of activity may endanger the respectability we have so recently gained".

You know these guys were low down on the respectability ladder when pimping is considered respectable...


Venice by Night – Monday March 10, 1309

Xing Shi

ST Shadow ONLY:
Thug 1 Soak 2d10 ⇒ (7, 6) = 13

You nearly eviscerate your foe, he staggers backwards and attempts to stagger away in his ruined condition.

The other foe takes the opportunity to backstab the man with No Name.

ST Shadow ONLY:
Attack Dagger 5d10 ⇒ (9, 4, 9, 7, 8) = 37 Damage 6d10 ⇒ (9, 3, 3, 9, 2, 5) = 31 No Name Soak if necessary 6d10 ⇒ (10, 10, 4, 9, 7, 2) = 42

The dagger penetrates deep into the man with No Name but to the Thugs horror, no blood comes out with the knife. The man with No Name does not even flinch. He merely shifts the energy released from his mouth to the other fallen combatant. Courage 3d10 ⇒ (10, 9, 10) = 29

Xing, there are two foes, one very wounded and one fresh. What do you do?


Venice by Night – Monday March 10, 1309

Xing Shi

Your strike on the man is solid.

ST Shadow ONLY:
Soak 2d10 ⇒ (2, 1) = 3

His clothing seems to soften the blow a bit but he is certainly wounded.

He lunges at you.

ST Shadow ONLY:
Attack Dagger 5d10 ⇒ (8, 5, 4, 3, 3) = 23 Damage 3d10 ⇒ (7, 3, 6) = 16

His strike grazes your shoulder. Soak one damage with Stamina.

The other lowlife lunges through No Name again, his hands shake as he seems to be unnerved by the effects. Courage 3d10 ⇒ (9, 4, 8) = 21

The man with No Name walks to the two lifeless bodies and a stream of dark energy lashes out from his mouth over one of them.

You are up again!

Xing lashes out at one of the men with her blade growling ferociously upset that she fell like that and the new blood flowing through her taking over.

[dice=dex+melee]7d10

[dice=Damage str+3+3]9d10

let me know if i did the damage wrong. Str+3 is 6 + 3 extra for extra successes vs diff 6? If i have to many dice just take off that last ones from roll.

You had 4 successes (10's only count 1x as you do not have Melee specialty yet) so the extra damage from the successes is 0 because one success was negated by a botch. The last die was a success on damage that you lost though ;-( while the other two were not successes anyway.


Venice by Night – Monday March 10, 1309

Michael Santo

You keep your cool.

Pietro smiles warmly, though you feel a bit uneasy, something about him makes him seem trustworthy to you.

"Yes. I will pay you double your rate for the transport if you tell me where these shipments are ultimately destined for starting with the cargo already delivered. That and nothing more will be required of you".


Venice by Night – Monday March 10, 1309

Michele Querini

All that you know.


Venice by Night – Monday March 10, 1309

Xing Shi

ST ONLY:
No Name Wits+Alertness 7d10 ⇒ (3, 6, 5, 3, 4, 1, 5) = 27 Thug 1 Wits+Alertness 4d10 ⇒ (8, 2, 6, 2) = 18 Thug 2 Wits+Alertness 4d10 ⇒ (4, 10, 2, 9) = 25

Initiative:
Xing
Thug 2
Thug 1
No Name

You land on your feet with a hard thud. Miraculously, you feel no pain from that fall, a leap you would call it, and are ready to engage the foes!


No worries. Feel better, when you are a Vampire you won't get sick anymore.....


Venice by Night – Monday March 10, 1309

Andrew the Hardy

You step outside with everyone.

You are stuck on the landing of the building until a Gondola passes by.

Federico shivers, "That was a tense meeting Signore' Andrew. It is best if we stay away from them for certain".

Baldemar speaks with Sir Martin in soft whispers. Martin turns to you Andrew, "Either they know nothing or they are hiding something, I cannot determine which one. In another city, I would request a writ from a Bishop to search the house, such is the power of the Vhurch in most civilized places, here we do not have that luxury".


Venice by Night – Monday March 10, 1309

Michael Santo

Note you are alone with Pietro in this room during this conversation.

"Right down to business, I like that. Very well. You have delivered packages of living cargo to an Inn within the past week correct?"


Venice by Night – Monday March 10, 1309

Michele Querini

You follow her through the city passing by tradesmen, drunks and guards none of whom pay either of you any heed.

Finally you arrive at a broken down building in the worst slums of the city. A few eyes in the shadows watch you enter the building but none follow.

Seated on a wooden carton is Hans. He stands, "There you are Querini, come let us talk of the activities of one Sadir..."


Venice by Night – Monday March 10, 1309

Alessandro Khadaji

Mario looks thoughtful, "A moment Signore".

The two men step away and begin arguing back and forth. Finally after two minutes of back and forth whispering they approach again.

Maurizio says, "We are interested, what are we looking for and what will you pay?" Mario looks disgusted but does not state anything to the contrary.


Venice by Night – Monday March 10, 1309

Xing Shi

Xing you attempt to rush down the building but perhaps your new form has effected your balance because you slam into the cobblestones right next to the altercation.

Fall Damage 3d10 ⇒ (7, 3, 8) = 18 You take 2 damage from the fall, you may soak with Stamina as normal.

Please roll initiative as you are now engaged in combat. If you soak all of the damage you will land on your feet and just be in pain, if you fail to soak any damage you land on your back and must take a half action to stand.
