Session Roundup #12

A very quick check in, as I am near to passing out. We played a session of Mage: The Awakening, No Justice Like Mob Justice tonight, as run by the Wonderous Clever Shieldhaven, you know, like you do.

Learning Rotes is going to be a really good thing for us. We're all still operating on 100% improvised spells, and doing pretty well, though the bar for success is high. I blew through really _all_ of my willpower, adding dice to various things I wished to do. Mostly pulling info out of people's conscious thoughts, and a tiny bit of psychic assault. By the way, heavy Stamina was completely the way to go, because I keep spells running all the damn time.

This time, we were investigating the disappearance of an acquaintance of Ikarafox's character, Saint. Well, we could have been chasing down Banishers, but changed it up at the last minute. There was... too much to explain, but it involved a running joke about chickens, shark-ghosts (though not really), and an Abyssal cultist cannibal (really). It ended... maybe well? Well right then. We'll see if Four-Color's character, Sequela, and I wind up arrested for murder or not. We'd just better hope that the security cameras caught the part where the janitor with the crazy teeth jumped on Stands-In-Fire, then tried to eat my character's face after he'd hit her with just a little bit of psychic bashing damage...

Ah well.

Seriously though, good times.

Also, I ought to have commentary on the Portal 2 co-op, now that we've finished it, but that'll wait for a more awake time.


  1. Yeah, y'all have been doing stuff on consecutive days, not really giving your Willpower time to recover on its own (or time to refill your Mana reservoirs from the Hallow). I figure this will lead to y'all looking for ways to satisfy your Virtues and Vices, or taking a few days off between now and the Consilium meeting.

    Or not. What do I know? ;)

  2. My next plan is actually to use the fact that Surya says that he hasn't eaten in a few days as an excuse to go and have a superlatively large dinner before we continue fighting evil, today. ;)

    Incidentally, I don't mind using up willpower-- it is there to be used, after all, and I kind of like the codifying of effort.

  3. Let me suggest to you that if you can think of a way to make this gluttonous excess work out to your mild disadvantage, it will fit into the spirit of the rule more cleanly, and that will make your Storyteller happier. ;)
