Hostel Hold Up and Upcoming Academic Conferences

A recent bold theft in Grenoble, France serves as a grim reminder to both tourists and citizens alike. Police are still searching for the culprits of the midnight theft, suspected of targeting visitors, and especially women traveling alone.

As a leader in scientific research, and a university town, Grenoble is especially vulnerable to criminals that pray visitors and guests. Local law enforcement reminds the citizens of their duty to report suspicious activity and suspected bad actors.

Travellers are urged to keep a close eye on their belongings, store valuables such as passports and credit cards separately, avoid empty areas, and travel in groups whenever possible.

8 hours, 11 minutes ago: Jenny Thorndike wrote a Downtime Journal for Maikendo

Fortunate Son

I spent a few days playing Maikendo as a regular game, trying to figure out more about it: I couldn't shake the feeling that we left a lot of the contract behind and somehow the 32-bit game felt very realistic and imbued with genuine emotion. While not a gamer, I'm professionally aware that people's feelings are usually very layered and frequently veiled... there is more to this game than it a simple glance can reveal, and if superficially delving into the world of contracts has already had such a result for me, I know being a great contractor is a must, since it will give me the tools to move forward. I'll dedicate more time to the game and to putting my life and finances in order: I'll set my affairs and wait for the next contract with a better grip on my new reality. I felt that this contract was rather merciful when I consider just how surreal my environs were and I know that if things had gone differently I might not have survived.

Apollo has a good sense of humor.

So Liv is a decade younger than me. That, uh, instantly shut down any attraction I had for her. But she was chill, we'll still keep in touch and work together. Speaking of, she asked if I wanted to help hunt something called a Mastodon in California. A magical creature of some sort. I was on board instantly. I've been itching to have something big to offer up to Artemis, to properly show off how much her gifts have helped me. I was picturing something big, with grand tusks I could carve into totems. It's a tiny lizard that feeds off thoughts. Called up Ware to help her network and field test the exo-suits. They got along great! Glad I could help Ware meet someone useful. First outing didn't go to well. Little shits managed to eat my thoughts, and I think it implanted a fear of lizards? I don't know, I'm scared of lizards now and that's weird. Too a week off to recover, went back out and bagged one. Liv owes me a favor and got to dedicate another kill to Artemis, even if it was a little underwhelming.

Day 69 I followed his car, and watched him play with his friends

I followed Ezekiel across the countryside today, watching him play around in the field with his friends. His laughter echoed through the air, sending chills down my spine. How I longed to be the one making him laugh, to be the one by his side.

But then I saw his friends, laughing and joking with him. They were taking up too much of his attention. They didn't deserve his presence. They didn't deserve him. I contemplated taking them out, one by one, so I could have Ezekiel all to myself. But I knew it was too risky, too messy. I couldn't risk losing him.

So I watched from a distance, seething with jealousy and longing. I will bide my time, wait for the perfect moment to make my move. Ezekiel will be mine, and mine alone.

When he finished up and started drinking with someone, I watched from the far corner. Polishing that knife, and staring at that other person's throat. WHO DO THEY THINK THEY ARE!?

Ezekiel went home alone fortunately enough. I watched him with hungry eyes, my heart pounding in my chest. I could feel the urge rising within me, the need to possess him growing stronger with each passing moment. But I forced myself to hold back, to control the love within me. I can't risk losing him, not now, not when he's so oblivious.

I will continue to watch him, to wait for the perfect opportunity to make him mine. Ezekiel will belong to me, body and soul. And nothing will stand in my way.

20 hours, 20 minutes ago: Zeke (ZMan) Mandela wrote a Downtime Journal for Highway to Heaven

HE WENT OVERSEAS TO A RESTAURANT WITHOUT ME!? DAY 45

I can't stop thinking about Ezekiel. His photos haunt my dreams, and I find myself staring at them for hours on end. I know we are meant to be together, and I will do anything to make that a reality.

I have gone to great lengths to learn everything I can about him. I stalk his social media profiles, google his name obsessively, and plan chance encounters in the hopes of running into him. I even stole some of his clothing, treasuring each item as a symbol of our connection.

I sleep with his clothing, inhaling his scent and feeling closer to him. I imagine scenarios where I can return the clothing to him, showing him just how deeply I care for him. And I have been teaching myself how to cook his favorite food, perfecting the recipe in the hopes of impressing him with my culinary skills.

My love for Ezekiel borders on madness, and I am willing to do whatever it takes to make him see that we are meant to be together. Our bond is unbreakable, and I will not rest until he realizes that. I am consumed by thoughts of him, and I know that our love will conquer all obstacles that stand in our way.

20 hours, 25 minutes ago: Zeke (ZMan) Mandela wrote a Downtime Journal for Sanctuary

Day 23 of watching him

I am seriously obsessed with the total transformation that Ezekiel Mandela, aka ZMan, has had. He has gone from being a confident little internet star to a total heartthrob, exuding confidence and charisma that makes my heart race. oh my god

I am completely head over heels for this guy's new persona. His social media game has gone from cute to absolutely breathtaking, and I can't get enough of it. And don't even get me started on his fashion sense - he used to be so basic, but now he's turning heads in high-end fashion that makes my heart skip a beat. But it's not just his looks that have captivated me. His newfound boldness and assertiveness have me swooning like crazy. He's finally found his voice and is taking charge in ways that make my heart flutter with excitement. I wanna talk to him so bad! But I can't just yet! I'm too shy! too much of a nobody!

I am so emotionally invested in his journey, it's unreal. I feel this deep sense of pride and admiration for him, like we have some kind of special connection. I am beyond excited to see him!

I'm gonna bump into him in the hallway! hopefull he talks to me

Oi, listen up you lot, those Govvy's think they're so bloody special, don't they? Well, let me tell you something - they ain't nothing but a buncha cunts, ye? Comin' in here like dey own the place. They should be burned

(ye YEH! Beat starts, hard)


It's time to speak out, sing the ol' song, let the truth be told
The gov'ment's full of fuckwits, meek and old
They're stealing our ages, manipulating our minds
Take a stand, leave them all behind

They think they're above us, they think they're untouchable
But we see through their lies, their actions, fuckin' deplorable
They're selling us out, to the highest bidder
They don't care about us, they're all just quitters

Why we roam the streets, like they own the place?
-
Why won't we fight killstreaks, spit in their face?

"We'll change, pretty please vote for me"
Fuck that, fuck you, little piggie go wee wee wee
_
They're corrupt as fuck Boi, to the core,

AY,
Beat stops
Haven't we been here before?

Beat drops

I'll take this journey, make the most of it
Learn from the past, I never quit
Embrace the shit thrown this way
Make the most it, gettin' paid

Let's raise our voices, let's make them hear
That we won't back down, shit's gone, never fear
Their oppressive ways, their unjust rule
Fight back, bruv, we Kings, make them the fools

(Yeh, Yeh)

I'm a priest on a mission, spreading love and bru'al salvation
But when I step to the mic, I bring fire (Damnation)

My rhymes are holy wo'er, cleansing your soul
I preach the truth, full picture: whole


I preachin' forgiveness (Fam), but don't get it twisted
-
I'll lay down the law, my words blacklisted
-
I'm a shepherd to my glock, guiding the lost
I bring the thunder (Blam Blam blam, my words are a cost

(Pay up)

So bow down to the Father, son! or become a ghost
I'm here to set your soul, turn you spitroast
I serve no King, but ey? Imma be a lyrical sire
Remember my name, 'cause Imma never retire

2 days, 5 hours ago: Izaac Laven wrote a Downtime Journal for Tales To Be Told

Almost complete

My preparations are nearly complete. I have reached out to an arms supplier and have started contacting my old man and possible recruits they they know. I'm setting up a meeting with all of them next month. I'm still trying pick whether I want to host it at my home or at a bar. Both ways I'm going to have to provide a good number of drinks. I don't need all of them to go with me in fact I only really want the ones who do it without much convincing. They need to be loyal to me not gathered with force or charmed with words. After I gather some men I have plans to make contact with some of the oil princes. They are always looking for men to defend there assets. If not them The cargo ships need help defending themselves from Somalia pirates. With one or both I can bring in a stable enough income to keep the troop running.

2 days, 9 hours ago: Seymore Alonso wrote a Downtime Journal for Crois deora

An untitled Journal

Following Sir Seymore's first quest, he settled in to allow his injuries from the battle of Templeton to heal. Nestling himself in the cozy living room of his cabin, he re-read old knightly tales, such as that of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, and pulled as-of-yet unread volumes from his shelves on courtesy and etiquette. As a knight, he knew that he would also need a mount, and set about researching a worthy steed. It was unlikely that a simple horse would suffice, so he looked through a mythic bestiary and once he had recovered a bit took a horseless, metal carriage south to acquire more books on the subject. As the month drew to a close, he began, tenderly, practicing his swordsmanship again to find that his simple quest had imbued him with an astounding increase in skill - particularly remarkable not only for the short timespan in which it had occurred, but for improvement of one already so experienced by such a great bound.

The Illumination

Illuminated Earth is a twisted reflection of the modern world where the advent of smartphones and the internet confirmed the existence of the supernatural instead of disproving it. Here, witch hunts have merit. Billionaires and Senators employ paranormal advisors and bodyguards, and everyone knows. Charlatans become pop culture icons, and each revelation inspires a new cult. The world is changing. The secret societies that pull humanity's strings scramble to adapt.

Now's a good time to move up.

House Rules

Contractors from Maelstrom Are portable, and may play in Contracts in other Playgroups.
Maelstrom grants 6 Experience points to GMs who achieve the Golden Ratio.

The Purpose of Maelstrom is to create a space for players to invest in a world in an engaging and interesting way, creating connections and relationships for their Contractors to explore.

 

Contractor Creation Rules

  • New Contractors must be submitted for approval in The Contract Discord server's #approvals channel before their first game.
  • At creation, Contractors cannot take more than 21 points of Assets and Liabilities. Liabilities count as a positive value for calculating this limit. Going over this limit requires Endorsed GM approval. New players are encouraged to take fewer than 21 points of Assets and Liabilities.
    • For Example: a new Contractor could take Hemophilia (15 point Liability) and Tough (6 point Asset) for a total of up to 21 points between both. They could not take Hemophilia (15 point Liability) and Immutable Body (15 point Asset) for a total of 30 points between both.
  • Contractors cannot be direct ripoffs of pop-culture concepts, to the point that NPCs in-game would notice the similarity. For example: you could play a heroic strong-man or a famous weapons-developer but not specifically Superman or Iron Man.
  • Contractors may not start out as a concept that is likely to disrupt Contracts (e.g. being a walking, talking fox, being as notorious as Osama bin Laden, having a bomb in their chest that detonates when they die, etc).
  • Contractors are mundane people who would see their ambitions through regardless of access to powers. That is why a Harbinger offers Gifts, and why they are willing to risk their lives for the power to make their dreams come true.
    • Your Ambition must be a core driver to your character's actions, is a large point of tension for their story, and is likely to get them into trouble. Craft your Ambition carefully and be open to suggestions and changes from Endorsed GMs in order nail it.
    • Keep in mind, however, that Ambitions can (and will) change over time as your Contractor develops. It's simply part of character development! No matter what, Ambitions are why a Contractor risks their life continuing to participate in Contracts. 
  • Customized Circumstances, Conditions, and Trophies should also be run by an Endorsed GM if the GM granting them is not Endorsed. This can be done in DMs or the server.

 

Maelstrom Contractor Limits

  • In order to facilitate more focused character concepts, Maelstrom has a hard limit on the number of Newbies and Novices that a Player can keep active. At Maximum, a Player can only have 2 Newbies and 3 Novices active in Maelstrom at once.
  • Any character housed in the Playgroup is considered active. Remove them from the Playgroup if they are no longer in-play. Moving Contractors back into the Playgroup requires Leader approval. Maelstrom is not a parking lot, please do not treat it as such.

 

Power Creation Rules

  • Cohesive Powers: Manifested Gifts must be in-line with Character Concepts and requires Endorsed GM approval.
  • Logical Flavor: Players must be able to explain how and why their power works in a given situation, otherwise GMs have license to cause them to fail.
    • For Example: a Blast flavored as a ball of fire might not work underwater. But at the same time, that same Blast power might do extra damage to enemies vulnerable to fire. GMs always have final say, but must remember to make Powers feel powerful. 

 

Citizenship

  • Active Players are expected to GM Contracts from time to time. If you have played as a Contractor 6 Maelstrom Contracts, you are barred from playing in Maelstrom again until you GM a Contract yourself.
    • This limit can be temporarily lifted if an Endorsed GM gives explicit approval to allow you to play in their game.
    • If at this limit, you may attend a game run by another GM fulfilling Citizenship.

 

Downtimes

Interacting and addressing Loose Ends, Conditions, and/or Circumstances require Moves during the Downtime between Contracts. This connects your contractor with the world in some tangible way.

  • Treacherous Loose Ends: A Contractor who waits for a Loose End's threat to manifest without taking any precautions against it during their Downtimes will see the threat revealing itself at the worst possible moment during downtime. Ask Endorsed GMs and Playgroup Leaders for Moves to help control Loose Ends before they control you.
  • Neutral/Unknown Loose Ends: Some Loose Ends are Unknown, meaning that they give the *Player* a hint of moving parts behind the scenes, but not necessarily the *Character*. A Neutral Loose End usually means that the dangers or benefits of the Loose End are obscured or up to the Character's actions once it manifests.
  • Investments: Some Loose Ends bestow benefits at the end of their clock. Investments are usually rewards for Moves and Hustles, but they might come from other sources as well. Ask Endorsed GMs and Playgroup Leaders for Moves to further your Contractor's goals.

 

--------

Notes on GMing in Maelstrom

  • All members of Maelstrom are encouraged to GM and run Moves, and no approval is required. Custom Scenarios likewise do not require pre-approval. 
    • Freel free to ask Endorsed GMs and Playgroup Leaders for feedback on your custom scenario before running it. 
    • By default, you cannot run Games or Moves for a tier that you have not played in yourself. For example, if you would like to run a Novice game, but have never played a Novice game, you must wait until you have had some experience in Novice as a Player.
  • Use GM Notes on the Story tab of the Contractor Sheet! This is a place to provide more detail about Circumstances, Conditions, and Loose Ends as well as important developments behind the scenes. Good GM notes makes it easier to run relevant Contracts and Moves for characters.
  • Keep intros concise during game time. If you want to run more extensive introductions, try to do it before playtime. Players, in general, should not need to be wheeled-and-dealed to agree to a Contract. A simple message sent to them should suffice.
  • In general, Contracts and Moves are subject to an "Exposure" criteria, especially when it comes to posted World Events. Contractors in higher Gift ranges have more freedom to affect the playgroup as a whole. At Newbie/Novice, however, the outcomes games will not ever have an international reach. Though Contractors might remember terrible things happening during their Contract, World Events might be scaled back due to meddling from The Powers That Be.
    • Don't take it personally if your World Event gets edited by a Playgroup Leader. It's part of the game and our efforts to keep consistent tone within the Playgroup.
  • GMs are encouraged to build interesting, consistent locations and organizations for Contractors to explore and engage with through Contracts and Moves. Talk to a Playgroup Leader about location development, they are happy to delegate the development of content.

 

Full Setting Description

This Playgroup uses the official Illumination Setting with slight tweaks.

Very small supernatural phenomena are rare, but not completely unknown. Fewer than 20,000 people in the US are born with some kind of basic supernatural abilities. Think, a guy who can snap his fingers to light a cigarette, slightly glowing eyes that help to see in the dark, or the ability to make a small electric spark. Very niche, not terribly useful, a cool party trick. The big supernatural phenomena are what makes the news, and what creates Illuminations. A bona-fide werewolf, an insect disguised as a human, a monstrous cryptid, or other similar intense anomalies will absolutely catch the attention of the media if they are found.

Hostel Hold Up and Upcoming Academic Conferences

A recent bold theft in Grenoble, France serves as a grim reminder to both tourists and citizens alike. Police are still searching for the culprits of the midnight theft, suspected of targeting visitors, and especially women traveling alone.

As a leader in scientific research, and a university town, Grenoble is especially vulnerable to criminals that pray visitors and guests. Local law enforcement reminds the citizens of their duty to report suspicious activity and suspected bad actors.

Travellers are urged to keep a close eye on their belongings, store valuables such as passports and credit cards separately, avoid empty areas, and travel in groups whenever possible.

Strange, Unconfirmed "Metahuman" Conflict in Russo-Ukranian Conflict

"Unconfirmed anonymous leaks of a possible superhuman conflict in the Russian-occupied territory of Ukraine."

(A recent upload on CryptoLeaks shows a strange, tall, muscular, and possibly metallic woman falling out of the sky and landing on a BTR-90 APC, crushing the back half partially, while a masked bear-like person and a man wearing heavy winter clothes in summer are pulling a Russian soldier from the APC. The woman hops onto the ground nearby and the other two release the soldier. There is an unheard conversation that takes place before the woman charges the hairy man with a large maul. The large hairy man with what looks to be a bear claw strikes her head and the man in the heavy parka forms large ice knives and throws them freezing her arm. She falls over incapacitated and is disarmed and taken prisoner before the other two depicted retrieve four men from the back of the APC and leave.)

Eccentric Billionaire Advocates for Enhanced Human Sports Leagues.

"This is Dave with Channel 5 News, we're coming to you today with a couple of unexpected guests; Dr. Minghua Szeto and the catgirl known online only as Smoldep." The camera pans to an odd couple, a vaguely Asian-looking, fem-presenting person with one blue eye and one green and walnut-colored hair, pale but otherwise average-looking, and a tan-skinned, freckled, pink-haired catgirl.

"Dr. Szeto I understand you are here to advocate for 'enhanced human sports leagues' is that correct?" Dave inquires, opening the line of questioning.

"I am, the idea came to me when I met another young gentleman who could not be present today. He's a magically gifted semi-professional surfer, inspired by such luminaries as Joe von Barish..." Minghua nervously begins to explain.

"Ah yes, I think we all remember 'The Surfing God's appearance at the Tudor Nazare Surfing Championship almost a year ago now." Dave responds, remembering the reports detailing the supernatural events of last year's competition.

“Enhanced surfing is like, gonna be the most epick sport of all time. It’s gonna be way cooler than the Olympics or whatever. Think of all the crazy plays ya’ll are gonna see from magickal competitors. TLDR W magical surfing championship, L regular sports.” Smoldep interjects with a crazed gleam in her eyes.

Dave seems a little put off by the sudden excited interruption from the internet gamer catgirl.

Minghua uses this to continue to their point, "Exactly, my friend, in fact, looks at John von Barish IV as an inspiration, and it gave me the idea that if there were leagues that were regulated specifically for these enhanced individuals to compete the spectacle could be an incredibly innovative field of entertainment."

"I see. So why are you wanting to start with surfing? Doesn't it seem like an obscure sport?" Dave inquires incredulously.

"In part because of Brody's sport of choice is surfing, and Mr. von Barish's rather public display following his win at last year's championship. It seems that the air around the sport is especially ripe for supernatural involvement." Dr. Minghua Szeto answers earnestly.

"Well, I can definitely say there is precedence there." Dave answers before continuing, "As for you Smoldep, will you be competing? And how did you come to be a catgirl?"

"Oh, these things?" she gestures at her ears and tail "I gottem through Gen Wyld."

Dave gives her a moment to elaborate further before concluding, "Well I think that's all we have time for. Our next guest is a..."

The news continues into the morning, and internet hits on "Enhanced Human Sports" swells for a time before suddenly being silenced, many suspect Elon Musk's involvement.

The Altruistic Construction Worker!

A news reporter stands at his little desk in front of a camera, holding a script, he brings up his arm, with a photo of Ricter there.

"Meet Ricter! Outed as being a supernatural being, yet that hasn't phased him away from his Altruistic good side. He was reported to have helped in subduing The Horned Serpent responsible for poisoning the waterways around North and South Dakota and many deaths!

He was seen working to put out the Great Michigan Fire with a number of others, saving many lives, direction traffic, and putting out suffocating fires!

Now just recently, he has gone out of his way to build the equivalent of a million and a half dollars worth of houses! Donating them to family that have lost their home in the terrible Michigan forest fire... Oh how amazing he is, despite all the discrimination he has gotten for just being special. This is why we must live and protect them! Supernatural people are good! Look at Mark Collins and Iryna! now we have Ricter too!"

 

The man starts going on a rant as it can be heard from the background "Cut! CUT!!!"

 

Multiple articles will drop as well, bringing attention to Ricter and the stronger idea that with super's help, humanity WILL recover from world problems and may even advance further!
