[WOD] Austin by Night : Session 3 as Eile

Our wonderful ST kind of LIVES by that internet joke "I try to live one day at a time, but several days attacked me at once". His days are usually busier than my weeks. I have come to understand that it takes a zen like focus and a whole lot of aggression to get through his stuff and try to be as generous as possible to him as I can.

On the day of our last game session, a whole MONTH of days attacked him. He didn't arrive until very late, so not a lot got done- but it was still a fairly good time.

Eile has been working at the Hedge Row, and has struck up something of a romance with a colleague at the bar, TK.

[Out of character, I know that this PC is a Sin-Eater. In character, Eile knows he is supernatural, but she doesn't know what he is. She knows there are a lot of things out in the world, but doesn't have any sort of "Field Book" to help figure him out. So she's using the process of elimination, or trying.]

TK's player and I decide to run a scene, but that it will take place in "downtime", and proceed to walk all over Austin, have dinner, go dancing and then walk back to the bar. TK then decides to make a move, and puts a slow song on the music player at the bar and they dance in the dark, alone at 5 am. TK finally kisses Eile, and the evening comes to a close after a bit of necking.

The scene was very well played- there was a strong sense of anxiousness, anticipation, curiousity, interest and tenderness. It really evoked that skittish, eager, first date feeling.

The ST ran a much-needed scene for our werewolf players- OOC, I know that they finally got a totem! He then elaborated on a few issues I asked about and I got more ambiguity on my in-character living situation. (Which I find hilarious and do not discourage at all!)

We wrapped things up, but I know the crew went over to the local AllNiteDiner and another scene or two may have gone on. I had to go home, as I was due at work the next day.

I enjoy our group, even when we aren't doing anything. I do wish I could help facilitate some of the "fringe" players more, but that's a whole different post.   I had a good time overall. We'll see what transpires next game!

  1. WoD sessions are capable of such great role-playing moments. We almost had one last session, but the other players weren't letting themselves get into the scene. Opportunity lost...
