Midwest Palla Grande '08
Hello everybody!

We have gotten everything finalized for Midwest Palla Grande 2008 in Decatur, Illinois on October 24th and 25th.  All the ongoing information can be found at the following website: http://tcw.oneworldbynight.org/pg08

So far the site includes Pre-Registration information (as well as links to pay via PayPal, with no minimum pre-reg amount requirement to hold the event), Hotel Information, Character Submission Information and Staff Contact Information.
The cost for the event is being kept just as reasonable as last year (Pre-reg: $8 one night, $15 both nights, at the door: $10/night).  The hotel costs at America's Best Value Inn are also affordable, starting at $45/night or $80/Fri-&-Sat for a double-bed room, and these are fairly nice.  The hotel is within close proximity of several restaurants and there is a bar/lounge on site at the hotel.
So come!  Have fun!  Get your Sabbat on!

A HUGE Thanks and request again
Heya folks,

First off, a big huge honkin thanks to all those who were able to donate and help out my bro Rem, he could not have survived without everyones help, seriously.

He is still however in rough times, and if any can help it would be greatly appritiated still. Seriously folks .50 cents would help him honestly.

Below is a donation tab direct to his paypal, I know that some of us are wrecked after Midwinter, and we both understand, but if anyone can help it would be greatly loved.

Help out my Brother
On October 4th, my older brother Rem was riding his motorcycle, 1980 Harley FLH bobber, down High Street here in Columbus. If your not familiar, High St is one of the two busiest streets in Columbus, it runs North South right by OSU Campus.
Anyhow, some dumb whore thought it would be a wise idea to not look before she opened her fucking driver side door. My brother Rem now has a steel plate in his foot, and three steel rods in his toes. Insurance has taken care of some of the bills, but for everything he needs.......... the numbers are really scary, and he makes Pizzas, and is looking at being out of work somewhere between 6 weeks and 6 months depending on the surgeries yet to come.
Both he and I have no problem admitting to be pretty simple guys honestly, but I can honestly say that without him in my life none of you would know me now.
If you can spare some cash to help him out, I have created a PayPal account for him,

Please.... if anyone can help, he more than anyone deserves it, even if it is only a dollar.

Midwest Palla Grande 2007
(X-Posted to  oneworldbynight and midwest_larpers)

Hello All!

I just wanted to send out this reminder to everyone who may be interested.  We have gotten everything finalized for Palla Grande 2007 in Decatur, Illinois.  All the basic info can be found at the following website:


So far the info on the page includes Pre-Reg information (as well as links to pay via PayPal), Hotel Information, Character Submission Information, Experience Information, and Staff Contact Information.  The rest of the information will be updated shortly.  However, I wanted to let people know that we will be playing on November 2nd and 3rd.  The two nights will be at different locations.  The first night will be held at Millikin University at Lower RTUC.  We will be providing a map to the site on campus so that it is easy for travelers to find, and we will also be providing rides from the hotel to said site for those in need.  It's a very awesome site that is fairly large and helps to set an awesome ambiance with the proper decorations (which we have mounds upon mounds of).  For more info regarding the Millikin campus, please feel free to check out their website ( http://www.millikin.edu/).  The second night will be held at the actual hotel.

The cost for the event is very reasonable (Pre-Reg: $8 - one night, $15 both nights, At the Door: $10 - one night, $20 - both nights).  And the hotel costs are even more reasonable, with rooms starting at $39.00 per night for a double-bed room.  And these are fairly nice rooms.  When you book your room, be sure to let them know that you are with the "One World by Night Event".  Depending upon how many rooms we book, we can even possibly get further discounts on the rooms.  The hotel is within close proximity of several restaurants and there is a bar/lounge on site at the hotel.

We will also be giving out prizes for things such as best costumes and good roleplaying.  I think we have some pretty interesting and fun prizes lined up for this year!  We also generally provide food at least one of the two nights.  So come!  Have fun!  Get your Sabbat on!  I hope we hear from many of you soon!

"Shadow Of Crimson"Vampire by Gaslight LARP at SalonCon

The Shadow of Crimson is a Live Action Role-Playing game set in White Wolf’s Victorian-era Vampire world. The game will emphasize role playing and character interaction but will also include political intrigue and problem-solving for individuals who wish to tackle the growing problem presented by Jack the Ripper.
The game will use a simplified version of White Wolf’s Minds Eye Theatre rules, but game mechanics will be largely secondary to acting and to socializing. Individuals who are unfamiliar with Live Action games, or even role playing games in general, are still invited to try their hand at what is essentially improve acting in a friendly, fantasy Victorian setting.

Now for the IC Stuff:
Kindred of the Camarilla,
     Prince Ezequiel Ramiro shall be holding a semi-formal Court on the evening of Saturday March 17th in the year of our Lord, two-thousand and seven.  The Court shall include formal introductions of both the Primogen and City Officers, as well as introductions of any and all visiting dignitaries.  The Court shall also include an announcement from Prince Ramiro regarding what is expected of each of his City Officers, which will include any additional announcements he has regarding such positions.  There will also be a discussion about the current investigation regarding the disappearances of the Kindred in this area.
     There will also be a short Primogen Meeting before the Court.  The Primogen Meeting shall take place at 7:30 p.m.  Any Primogen who expect that they will not be able to attend should send a Clanmate in their stead (preferably their Whip).  The rest of the evenings schedule is thus:
  • Formal Introductions at 7:45 p.m.
  • Announcements from Prince Ramiro at 8:00 p.m.
  • Investigation Discussions at 8:30 p.m.
     It is expected that the discussion regarding the investigations shall wrap up at roughly 9 to 9:30 p.m. at which time the Kindred of the area may stay around to discuss any important issues they might have for the Prince or the Court (or the area in general), those who are interested may assist in the investigations taking place, or you may do with your time as you see fit.  However, do not forget that we are a city in caution currently.  The wise Justicar Streck has asked us to come to this area for good reason.  We should keep that in mind with all that we do.  Good evening and I hope to see you all in attendance.
In Humble Service;

Tell me why I should still be a member of OWBN.

Honestly, I'm to the point where I need a good reason. Maybe three good reasons.

Sorry for the interruptions
That being said, I wanted to take a moment to clear up some rumors that have I have heard.
I am not, I repeat NOT Storytelling a game on sunday evenings, I have no intention to story tell any game on sunday evenings, and I most certainly DO NOT want to start a game with the intent of competeing with Columbus in Darkness. I wish them only the best, I would be honored to still consider myself friends with all the storyteller staff, even thought we do disagree on certain aspects of game.

Game On.
