roundtable notes

posted Jun 20, 2017, 6:15 AM by Peter DiGravio

At round table we went over a number of topics as the torch passed from Chris Adams to Luke as HST.  Thanks again Chris and staff for all your hard work.

Here are the notes from round table for those who were not able to make it!

POTENTIAL GAME SITE INFO:

Starting in September (right after GE) the church will no longer be usable space for us.  We have brainstormed a number of options and will begin systematically looking into what fits our game best.

Hilliard Arts Council - Brought up as a potential game site.  We would like to schedule a test game for sometime in July.

Clintonville Community Center

Otterbein University

Columbus Idea Foundry - We are reaching out currently to get relevant details

Unity of Columbus - This is the game site for OKS and we have put the president of the board in contact with Peter DiGravio to look into this as a potential CID site as well.

HOUSEKEEPING

Clean up and leave any game site looking better than when we arrived.

ITEM CARD AUDIT

There will be a new stamp soon.  When that happens we will begin an item card audit during game time.  Your items will be taken while you are in play.  If it does not have a new stamp it will not be usable. 

GRAND ELYSIUM

Is Coming! Weekend of August 25th. Please be aware that at this time there is no additional space for clan meetings.  Keep this in mind as you plan IC interactions.

We have a decorating committee and are working on finalizing decorations and IC accommodations.  If you have things you need to submit or have the staff assist with planning on GE, please let us know immediately.

Alcohol will be available. Please continue to represent CiD appropriately.  

Finally Pimp the shit out of GE! We want it to be a success and that involves getting travellers!


HOUSERULE REMINDER

We have a houserule in CID that you do not communicate with the world outside of CID when you are signed into game.  This means that there should be no IC messages going out of CiD or being read/used/acted during game on.  Please see a storyteller if you believe that you need an exception to this rule.

YOUR ACTIONS WHILE TRAVELLING

Please note that when travelling outside of CiD you and your actions reflect on our game.  That means that if you receive negative consequences  OOC for your actions you can expect them to be also upheld in CiD.

INFLUENCES

Please see Chris Pieratt's email for updates to influences and timelines.  

COUNCIL

We are opposed to signing the Code of Conduct and would like to begin writing an amendment to the CoC based on conflict of interest. 

OPEN FLOOR

ST availability and localized plots were brought up as things players would like to see more of in CID going forward

Influence

posted Jun 15, 2017, 7:46 AM by Peter DiGravio

Good morning all,
I now have the influence inbox and will be getting back to everyone as I get to things.  Sorry its already Wednesday so things will be a little late this week.  In general I will get responses to people by Thursday afternoon. Exceptions for double spends to get instantaneous results.  That said, some quick reminder to how I do this.
Influence actions occur on thursday, so that you have time to react before sunday and get actions in in response to game.
If you have a held action, tell me about it when influence resets.  You want to continue your held action, just shoot me an email each monday.
Growth, please include your current level of the influence in your growth action.  I don't have access to see your sheets.
Our rules follow dark epics for growth, attack, defend, stealth etc. On Thursday you will see if your watch/block etc was successful or not.  To this, if you are trying to track something that happened in the past, expect some roadblocks based on how much time has passed.  Last week, no big deal, last month a little something, more than that, you will have trouble.
Influence actions, If you want to do multiple actions with your influence please specify how much you want to spend on each action.  Unspecified amounts =1 to me.  Also, if you want to watch for something, that is an actions.  If you want to watch for multiple somethings, that is multiple actions.
If you are loaning your influence to someone, please send that at influence reset as well.  If I don't have an email saying you loaned it to x, they won't get it.

As always, please let me know if you have any questions.  If you tell me your goal in the email, I can help you craft the mechanics to get there.  I'm really here to help.

Influence Dictator

Grand Elysium update

posted Feb 6, 2016, 8:46 AM by Peter DiGravio

Sorry for the late notice to those that plan their vacation early but Columbus in Darkness is not going to be hosting their normal Grand Elysium this year.  We have decided this for a variety of reasons.

1. The cost: our expenses have been increasing yearly while our attendance has not been keeping up with this.  There have been a variety of reasons for the drop in attendance but as we cannot continue to lose money yearly on an event.  

2.  Lack of coordinator support: Columbus' Grand Elysium has been a staple in OWbN for over 10 years and for at least the past two years we have had little to no coordinator support.  To have national draw, you have to have national plot.  

3.  Competing events: Last year, we had Ecumenical Council 2 months before, the Gangrel Event 2 weeks before and then the Anarch Event 3 weeks after Grand Elysium.

We are planning on having an event.  We are deciding on what that event will look like and when it will be best to host that.  

Again, I am sorry for the lack of communication.  

Let me know of any questions or concerns.

Thank you for your support in the past and hopefully in the future.
