The Great Fangsby
« on: January 18, 2019, 09:49:46 AM »

1925, Upstate New York, a winding road in the Adirondack mountains.

It's been a harsh winter. The Juniper siblings were journeying together, heading home from the city where they'd acquired the new silk their parents needed for the haberdashery when the blizzard started to pick up. The eldest, losing control of the car in the conditions, put it into a ditch on  the side of the road. Cold, no way to contact anyone, they wandered into the woods, hoping to find a cabin or any kind of shelter in the bleak mountains when they come upon the long driveway to a prestigious mansion that you would find on the outskirts of the city, not here in the absent forest. Against their better judgement and with no other options, the siblings find themselves at the mercy of the  Master of the house, whoever they may be, until the storm has cleared.

(Okay, so I mentioned this before but here we go, Kira said something about a vampire RP a couple days ago and I've been thinking about it since then, also reminiscing on an old Beauty and the Beast style RPG we had going that I wanted to sort of recreate. Instead of the normal victorian/medieval backdrop, I thought the Jazz Age might find itself as a fun new way to play it out.

I will play Mistress of the house, a Vampire. My vampire rules: no garlic, no crosses, no sunlight, can turn into a bat, drinks mammal blood to feed, being turned involves first being bit and then choosing to bite back. If you don't bite back, you die. Easy peasy. Just wanted to make things clear since I know everyone's got different rules in mind usually.

Looking for players for  the siblings (at least two, three Max) as well as house servants who may or may not be vampires also, up to you. I will also play a few servants here and there when needed.

If there's interest, I'll post a card form.
