Lucas Blackstone: You are a freak that should burn in Hell... why don't you suck Pyle's balls why you're at it!

AHHHHHHHHHH!    - Tuesday, August 31, 1999 at 22:09:30 (EDT)

Excuse my young and naive ghoul. My flight was unfortunately delayed in your beautiful city. He is back on his medication and I am sure he will not disturb you again. Do try to ignore his insolence, should he get out of line please contact me and I will assurdly see to his discipline.

Until then, I wish each of you adieu and will depart from your political discussions. Ciao.

Damn you Pyle. Damn you to hell! How you do such a thing? It is through your will alone that this LARP exists. Damn you boy, you must come through for us lest the whole thing crumble in the hands of some petty despot who will change all of our rules and wear a silly looking beret.

First the restaurant goes, then next thing you know the Wyrm's red eye will be gazing down upon us. O the humanity!

Is the Fortress our last bastion for salvation in this insane and innane world? Will the squirrels who wear pants be our saviors? Or will it be the Angry ones?

For the love of Pookahs everywhere, We Must Have A Restaurant!

Sorry to report this but, we may have some problems with Tony's! As of right now he is too understaffed to serve us after L.A.R.P. September 11th is diffently out :( However, After that game I can give him a better picture of how many people we are going to have! So dont give up total hope, but just start thinking of another possible eating place...

We (Aaron, Erica, John, and myself) are now an official White Wolf Demo team! Huzzah! I hope that this eventually will leed to us meeting new roleplayers and hopefully new LARPERs! We will be Demoing games twice a month at the Fortress. Hope to see you there... By the way, Party at the Aud is tommorow night.

Just wanted to encourage people to go see the movie, the Sixth Sense. I loved it. It's great for anyone interested in Wraith.

Ari told me you should wear pants.

Pants    - Tuesday, August 24, 1999 at 13:56:56 (EDT)

No clue. Ari just mentioned that they had to move it to Tuesdays, because they couldn't get a room big enough on Wednesdays. Traditionally GS tries to get the Purdue room, since its one of the few big enough to hold everybody. It's also possible that they got the Iowa room, though, since they've used that in the past. I'll ask next time I see some of them.

John    - Tuesday, August 24, 1999 at 10:40:45 (EDT)

John, what room did the Green Spirals get for Tuesdays? Do you know?

- Sunday, August 22, 1999 at 14:18:05 (EDT)

Hey, Aaron, I got some bad news. Just talked to some GS people; the green spiral meetings for the fall have been changed from Wednesdays to Tuesdays. Apparently they weren't able to get a big enough room on Wednesdays. Just thought I'd let you know.

John    - Sunday, August 22, 1999 at 12:33:17 (EDT)

Dear Angry Me,

No need for jealusy, everyone knows I dont do EVERYTHING for the L.A.R.P. I believe Kirk was happy (as I hope everyone is) that he is now playing in a L.A.R.P. that is featured in a White Wolf publication, thanks to me. I would like to thank The Conleys for organizing the painting of the fortress. I also would like to say that all the work done so far is mearly the beginning!! We REALLY need people this week to start passing out our new flyers to the dorms. I will keep you in touch with the details. Have pride in your L.A.R.P., The storytellers do!

Happy Pyle    - Saturday, August 21, 1999 at 23:55:18 (EDT)

Firt of all.... Pyle was only one of the people who worked hard to organize the fall term!!!! Many other people worked hard to make this term happen and many of the ideas 'were not' Pyle's. Not to belittle Pyle, but alot of other people put alot of hard work into this LARP!

angry me    - Saturday, August 21, 1999 at 20:12:57 (EDT)

Congrats to Pyle for his administative skills and organizing the new term, especially the restaurant. Although I haven't seen the Fortress yet, I'm sure it's going to look cool from the descriptions I've heard. And to all those breaking the Masquerade and the Veil....I'm still Watching!

Sorry about the page being down for so long (especially the comment page)... the server moved and was re-set up correctly, but MSU (who has the main nameserver in this area, and works with TCI) kept sending anyone who went to any of the "alagad" domain names to the wrong address. We didn't have any way to anticipate MSU screwing up and I didn't know the date that the server would be moving (it was a surprise to me too), so we couldn't announce the down time in advance. oops. Back to your regularly scheduled spinning.

Pyle! I talked to Nate and he is going to get the forms you need. If not, Aaron is going to do it under the Wiccan Study Group. Also, Aaron doesn't work on Saturday so he will be starting the flyer drive much earlier!! Everyone who is interested in helping should contact him. As soon as we figure out a time, I'll post it for all who are interesed in helping.

- Wednesday, August 18, 1999 at 09:25:19 (EDT)

While I can't speak for any of the other floors in Holmes Hall, I could probably put a flyer up on my floor, and I'd be happy to do so. 4 East is notorious for bending the rules. Just out of curiosity... why was the page down for so long?

- Wednesday, August 18, 1999 at 01:46:39 (EDT)

YEAH! IT'S BACK! Huzzah!! Now I can actually communicate with you people! Here is the scoop: I am now once again apart of the working community. I work for dTn management, which if you don't know, owns over 30 apartment complexes in the Lansing area. What does this have to do with the L.A.R.P., Pyle? Just this... I have to work mandatory overtime the next 2 weekends so I wont be able to start the flyer drive until at least 7pm on Saturday. This may be too late to get into the dorms rendering the whole purpose of this drive useless. I have yet to determine this at the moment. The other hold up is we need a form from the Student Services building to even be allowed to distribute flyers in the dorms, plus only student organizations are allowed this from. I have been trying to get a hold of Nate Bradshaw so he can have Brass Dragons get us this form to no avail. if any of you know how to get a hold of him, please have him page me. This is were I stand now. I hope to get this all straitened out quickly so we can ahead and put flyers in the dorms! Just a couple more thing: In case you haven't heard I have 2 big announcements: First: The Fortress LARP (as well as my home phone number, grrrrr) is featured in the latest issue of "The Mind's Eye Journal." Simply flip to the last page and look in the upper corner! I hope everyone is happy that they are part of a LARP that is recognized in WHIT WOLF PUBLICATION! Second: Because of my outstanding negation skills, I have secured Tony's restaurant for our use after game. I hope everyone will plan on eating to support Tony for keeping his restaurant open just for us. For those of you who have never been to Tony's, it is located a block away from the Fortress (Well within walking distance for even the laziest of larpers) next to El Azteca. They offer great food, great selection and BIG HELPINGS for a VERY REASONABLE price. PLUS SHAKES!!! I hope this will end all the after LARP eating controversy! That is all for now, KAPLA!

Edmund. I will be the first in line to choke slam you... we had a hell of a time getting Eric to let us paint because of your little paint job. And don't think you're off the hook with the red room... we left it for you to finish! heehee

Erica    - Tuesday, August 17, 1999 at 17:00:12 (EDT)

Wow!!! In my state of random laziness, people actually took over my original planned project. I'm glad someone finally stepped in. I apologize for my laziness and forgetfulness about painting Fortress, ladies and gents. I decree that *ALL LARPERS* have a fair share at choke slamming me next time they see me, or at the first Larp of the semester. Once again, I'M SORRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is all. Edmund out. By the way, the Asian has returned to do some damage!!! . . . because . . I'm Asian!

Everyone! Check out the Fortress when you get a chance! Just to show you how dedicated we are to bringing you the best LARP we can, we spent over 15 hours on Sunday painting it so that it was more condusive to a great LARP atmosphere. If you get a chance, you should thank Eric at the Fortress for letting us do it... This is just one small step in making LARP better for everyone!

Erica    - Monday, August 09, 1999 at 01:59:02 (EDT)

Aaron: Its cool. Whenever I post something like that, take it as a joke. I rarely ever write anything serious, unless its related to Vampire. Which brings me to the "not so spinny person". Once you _find_ the Chantry, feel free to _attempt_ to destroy it....

A not so spinny person    - Saturday, August 07, 1999 at 18:45:04 (EDT)

Dude, Aaron, it was a joke. I just find it ironic that Vampire is the genre that has the most in-party fighting, and not just at Fortress, but in every game, and now the Garou are about to start a civil war so near the time of the apocalypse. As for whoever the dumbass vampire is, you truly are. Reason for hiding in the Chantry: There's a big, nasty ward vs. garou protecting the one entrance. Not to mention they'd totally screw the Viel considering the chantry's location....

Claws slash/Fangs drink deep/Rake the Wyrm's throat/Close the Wyrm's eye/Shower of blood/End of time

from the Howls of Mooncaller (Red Talon Galliard)    - Saturday, August 07, 1999 at 04:25:57 (EDT)

And in the time before the final days, I saw children arise from the marriage of light and darkness. Scions of the Wyrm, ancient beyond knowing yet newly born, they hovered above the vastness of the world between the worlds, spreading their influence as eagles or vultures spred their wings./From the pits of madness and the heights of glory they came, yet their purpose remained hidden from my sight. I watched their coming and rejoiced. I beheld their arrival and I despaired. What is it they seek?/In those days, too, I saw a new star herald their coming and heard the cry of a newborn child announcing their arrival. This I saw and heard, and nothing more revealed itself to me.

from the Wanderings of Meros    - Saturday, August 07, 1999 at 04:23:29 (EDT)

And the armies of destruction marched forth, led by the child that should not be and bearing the sign of the eye of the devourer upon its brow. Against that child, nothing could prevail. The heavens shuddered once in sorrow and despair. Then all was still. In the silence which followed, I heard a voice saying, "This is what may come to pass, yet all is not unchanging. Seek, therefore, the child that you may prevent the end of all things."

from the Dreams of Guliera Moonsister    - Saturday, August 07, 1999 at 04:16:17 (EDT)

Child of Yakecen, born in sin/Imperfection lies within/Wrapped in beauty, filled with Rage/Sings the death song of the age

from the vision of Eeyarlagh Twice-Born    - Saturday, August 07, 1999 at 04:11:35 (EDT)

Two who should not be, in unblessed union join, bringing forth one perfect whole, fruitful in form but dark and ill-fated in spirit. Perfect shall the child be called. Damned shall be its mother and father. Doomed or saved shall be the world.

from the Death Song of the Croatan    - Saturday, August 07, 1999 at 04:09:44 (EDT)

When the solar winds cease their endless journey through the empty spaces, a great cry shall sound heralding the death of the sun./From the edge of nothing, from within the center of the spiraling void, a harbinger of death shall open its blood-red eye./Destruction preceds its coming,/Ruin follows in its wake./This is the first death of the universe - the death of light.

Eshtarra's Song    - Saturday, August 07, 1999 at 04:06:49 (EDT)

The orb of the Wyrm opens in the heavens, and mdness shall rule the skies/A rain of terror shall fall in drops of fire and ice, like tears from an ever-weeping eye

prophecy of Simeon Abd al Hakim - Silent Strider Theurge    - Saturday, August 07, 1999 at 04:02:16 (EDT)

It's a calm evening. The summer wind blows calmly through the woods, ruffling my long red hair. The full moon lights the night brightly. I had walked for about 25 minutes, thinking about recent events. This place is perfect. Perfect for today's practice. A small grove, full of very young trees. Trees that can't be more than a year old. I sit. Must center first. Placing my weapon in front of me, I think back to one event where I was taken suprise of. A rarity indeed. It will never happen again. Rage begins to fill my thoughts. I grab my weapon, and in an instant I'm Gaia's warrior. I flow through the forms I have practiced for these months perfectly, and lightning fast. My thoughts drift to the blood flowing out of my skin and into the air. I dash and slash. And again. I focus on my thoughts. Thoughts of shame. Shame that I have not shared with my pack mates. Thoughts that were born from one source. That source must be extinguished to rid the shame. I continue, faster than ever before . I become one with my weapon...we are one. I am one with my Rage. It fills me. I focus it. My vision blurs. In my thoughts I see my vengence fulfilled as my blade releases the burden of his head from his shoulders. I plunge the blade into the ground. Howls of Rage fill the surrounding air as I do so. I stand in a now empty grove, trees now covering the ground, breathing somewhat heavily with my claws resting on the pomell of my weapon. Resting on a blood red tear. "Yes, he will die," I say in the tongue of my people, "...he should have killed me while he had the chance." Looking up at the heavens, the Red Star gleams in the night sky....

Whoah...hey, I'm fine, not offended or anything. It just seems that Jordan's idea sounds pretty cool, a lot more fun loving and kooky than what I had planned. It's just my lack of self esteem kickin' in. I think I'll keep working on the design...I love you all...well, most of you, but I just can't commit...
Anyways..oh yeah, the red star is supposedly the eye of the worm....excuse me, I meant...The Eye of the Wyrm!!! I think that was in Time o' the Thin Blood or something. Blue shift? I've heard of red-shift, but blue shift? I guess white-wolf knows what they're talking about.
God/Monkey, I'd do anything for you. God/Monkey, just tell me what you want me to....
Go on, take the monkey and run...whoo-whoo-whoo!! I'll stop.

As interesting as the shrt discussion is I'll instead add something about the red star. The red star is part of a Garou prophecy (part of or related to the Prophecy of the Pheonix). It's coming heralds the Apocolypse. It also signals the birth of either the doom or victory of the Garou literally. On the night it appeared a perfect Garou child was born to Metis parents. the Garou are lining up into major camps, those that believe that the child is the Hero of the Apocolypse and those that think he is the Champion of the Wyrm. While the Garou get ready for civil war the child is placed into hiding. the time for apocolyse however is set. It will happen once the child has reached adulthood. And as it relates to blue shift this will coincide with the "star" reaching Earth. The reason it is more clearly seen in the Umbra than the physical world has to do with the nature of the Umbra. If a thing is more physical than spiritual it is seen more in our plane. If more spiritual than physical it ids more e asily percieved in the Umbra. The Red Star is as much spiritual (if not more so) than physical, therefore it's Umbral presence is greater. In short it exists simultaneously in the physical world and the Umbra.

If Deep Umbra is the equivalent to several light years away in the vastness of space, okay. If it means someplace in the Spirit Realm of the Werewolves, thats not okay, since every other supernatural creature can see it. The Void Engineers(Technocracy) have put a lot of effort into investigating this thing, but their ships go haywire or simply don't return.

I have to agree with Kirk. No squirrels or pants. Sorry, not that I don't love pants or squirrels, but the two do not belong together...The logo on the webpage is nice, but too complicated. We need something simple and eye catching... You think of something Ward. You're the damn graduate in Art or something!

Kirk    - Thursday, August 05, 1999 at 15:08:18 (EDT)

The red star is still way out in the deep umbra at this point too, which is part of the reason no one has yet investigated it. Guess we'll have to wait for Rage across the heavens (speaking of which, certain people have been talking about the book already. Does anyone know if its out yet???)

I found some more information on the Red Star that appeared in Time of Thin Blood. Apparently, the Technocracy has taken a notice to the new star also. According to the Void Engineers, its appearance coincided with the Ravnos Antdiluvian waking up, as well as a lot of the Technocracy's gadgets going haywire. All the craft they've sent to investigate have had to return because of performance problems. Also, the star is showing a Blue phase shift. For those of you who have limited knowledge of astronomical terminology, that means its getting closer. I knew the Guide to the Technocracy would be good for something. Anyway, laterz.

A squirrel with pants...I guess I'll think about that. Hey, I realized something today. If you replace any phrase involving money with instantly becomes hilarious.
For example: "for the love of monkey", "not for all the monkey in the world", "a fool and his monkey are soon parted", "monkey is the root of all evil", "The Color of Monkey", "Other People's Monkey", "Mo' Monkey" and my personal favorite...."Why don't you put your monkey where your mouth is?"
I tried to replace the word "honey" with monkey...but the only phrases I could think of were: "Sweeter than monkey", and "Monkey Nut Cheerios."
Anyways, I'll try to include an extra design with the squirrel idea...but the final say will have to come from the storytellers,..I think.
Nuttin' but love...

Well, it makes Disciplines like Dominate, Presence...Eyes of the Serpent....what have you,essentially more powerful, and it makes Iron Will essentially more cheaty...they should increase it from a five(is it five?) point merit to a six or seven.
In other news, Pyle's phone number has been published in an international publication...eek. Well, hopefully it's good publicity.
Further news, I'm working on designing the Fortress t-shirt, can anyone suggest any symbolism besides squirrels? Nuttin' But Love...

I was reading through MET: Journal 3 and I came across the preview for Laws of the Final Night, obviously, Laws of the Night revised. One of the things they said they are going to change, is that by expending willpower on lost social and mental challenges, you get a _retest_ instead of simply negating the power used. What does everyone think about this, assuming it happens? I see it as a justified change. I don't like the idea of someone negating my attempt at Mesmerism as an Elder Ventrue when the target is neonate 13Th Gen. Brujah. The fact I play a Tremere(all mental trait based disciplines) has nothing to do with my opinion honest...*ahem, cough, cough*. What does everyone else think?

I have decided to limit new players for the time being to the 6 Camerilla clans. I do this for two reasons. 1: So for the first time in Fortress history we can have vampire politicking. 2: My plot will be revolving heavily around the Camerilla and the year of reckoning... This will not be a permanent situation. As soon as I have 14 Cam players (enough for 2 narrators) I will once again open it up to other clans. On a case by case basis I may allow "posers", but not likely. Also, when the game reaches 14 vamps I will allow player character elders but not until. If anyone has any questions please feel free to e-mail me. Thank you in advance for your cooperation,

Everyone: With LARP coming up, we've been crunching to get things ready for fall. We definately have been working to make things better and one of the things we have done is bought 'headsets' for all the storytellers. Of course, these things aren't free and it cost $150.00 for the 4 headsets and batteries. Mike Robinson was kind enough to pay for these out of his pocket right away so we didn't have to wait. We are accepting and asking for donations to pay Mike back. If you have any questions or concerns or want to know where to drop money off, please e-mail me.
