This series is a part of an ongoing drop-in and drop-out campaign, but we will be pulling from the wait list if a player is unable to make it! You do not need to be familiar with the game system or story so far to jump right in, we’ll take good care of you! I will email everyone on the RSVP list to confirm attendance. In case someone needs to drop, I will reach out to folks on the wait list!
This is a series that will span three different game systems to tell one story: the story of the Brinkwood and the brigands who dare to take on the vampire lords. This is an experimental series and players should be willing to be flexible with playing any of the systems and playing different characters throughout.
In The Face Of Our Despair: a collaborative storytelling game about a group of fae guardians fighting a doomed war in a forest that falls to vampiric corruption. A one shot to tell the tale of the fallen fae, a doomed forest, and the fae Mask it created. We will have one game of this per season to serve as a flashback to current events.
Brinkwood: Blood of Tyrants: You are a brigand, a commoner radicalized by tragedy who has decided to forsake their old life and flee into the woods to plot a rebellion. Cardenfell is your home, a kingdom on the brink of open revolt against the vampiric nobles and factory lords who rule over it. All it will take is a single spark. Your spark. Whether you’re robbing from the rich and giving to the poor, or assassinating vampires and drinking their blood, every move you make will take you closer to your goal: liberating your home from the vampiric scourge of blood rent and exploitation. We will play 2-3 sessions of Brinkwood: Blood of Tyrants per season, to serve as the main storyline of the game.
Brinkwood: Refuge : The Refuge is the last place in Cardenfell that is safe from the vampires. It is the quiet heart of the rebellion. Stories told in Refuge will focus on healing from trauma, building relationships, facing the past, and inviting a brighter future. We will play 1-2 sessions of Refuge between forays and play out some of the relationships and NPCs, to serve as the side stories of the game.
