The Year is 1232.
For years now, the small university town of Cambridge, England, has been a crucial square on the board in the great chess game between the Brujah, Venture and Lasombra clans for control of Western Europe.
Now, things begin to change, the Tzimisce and Assamites move in from the East, a new clan, the Tremere begin to make their presence felt and now, rumours spread about the awakening of a Powerful and evil Methuselah.
And then, one evening, Servinius, Elder Brujah Prince of Cambridge is found diablorised in his bed, creating a power vacuum.
Who will succeed him? Which clan will gain control of this vital town? And why do all of Cambridge’s Malkavians seem to be disappearing?
A one-session freeform using Mind Eyes Theatre’s Faith and
Fire rule book. No knowledge of either setting or rules
are needed to play this game, but those who are familiar with the setting are encouraged to send in their own character concepts. You can even design your own and send it to me for approval. However: No Malks, (someone has murdered them all) and there can only be one abomination in the game, a Ventrue Silver Fang, which can be either male of female and goes to the first player to ask for him/her.
Please contact Jason Cebalo at least a fortnight before the Con. (02) 6241-8246 or email jason_andrew_cebalo @ yahoo.com.au (remove the spaces around the '@').

Once upon a time in a land far far away…
There once was a fairy godmother called Agnes, and like all fairy godmothers, she would bestow a blessing on a new princess or other deserving young lady, who’s destiny was to marry a prince. That is assuming she had the right size foot for the glass slipper or magical wooden clog or whatever. Agnes enjoyed bestowing blesses in fact gained a reputation for thwarting evil fairy’s curses (it pays to be fashionably late). There is one aspect of the fairy Godmother business however, that most people don’t know about, and that is the paperwork. Agnes enjoyed the blessing, but hated the paperwork ( a good blessing could take a week or two to complete the paperwork) and with time her blessings became simpler and in a way stranger.
And so it came to pass that in a time not so long ago that Agnes blessed a princess, to “Never have to face the torture that she doth face on a daily basis…”
King Frederick has offered a reward, he wants to marry his betrothed, but cannot until she graduates. She cannot graduate until her “Blessing “ has been removed. Could it be that she is the child so blessed by Agnes. Only her fellow students can discover…
And by the way, her fairy godmother is refusing to take any calls...
A freeform for various enterprising St Tyrants Students.
