Now that’s a fine package of loot; but, we at SERE took a moment to think why we’re all gathering to this convention. This is a MES event, right? We’re here to LARP! So, for VIPs, we’re offering in game bonuses and gear.

Since this is the official launch of the new BNS Apocalypse Chronicle for the MES, we are offering some bonuses specifically for Werewolf: The Apocalypse:
1x GENUINE Gurahl Rubbing Dirt Talen: Traits – Restorative x2, heals up to two aggravated damage.
1x Bane Arrow: Traits – 1 automatic damage to Banes.
1x Gnostic Juicebox Talen: EXCLUSIVE TO OUR VIPS! Traits – Abundant x2, grants 2 Gnosis

For players of ALL OTHER VENUES you will get the following:
1x PVE Environmental Change Card: Usable to make a small alteration to a scene. Change subject to ST approval, not valid in any PVP actions.
Your escape route blocked by a locked door? Maybe the door isn’t locked anymore. Need to see what those suspicious folks are plotting? Hey, looks like there’s an easy bit of scaffolding to climb to peek into the penthouse. The world is your oyster with this card.
1x Rumor for the Venue of Your Choice: Get some delicious insider knowledge to the venue of your choosing, redeemed at check-in.
Who knows what juicy secrets our ST staff could be hiding. Get a whisper in your ear with this benefit to help you get a step up on troubles, or to get the inside track to power.
1x Fuel of Your Choice for Each Venue: A little extra pocket fuel to keep you going when things get hairy.

​ ​

“Hearken to me, Gaian Warrior. We have need of your strength, cunning and wisdom. We have found a periphery suitable for a seed Caern within Atlanta. Unfortunately, it happens to lie within a den of iniquity that is the front line in our war.

We cannot win without unity.

We cannot win without you.

Help us reclaim part of Gaia. Fight to clear away a bastion for freedom. Protect our elders in a righteous cause. Will you help us, warrior?”

The siege begins with SERE 2017.

Join us for two game sessions of Werewolf: the Apocalypse showcasing the opening of the new venue and new rules!

SERE 2017 takes place on the first weekend in March at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. We have these two sessions to kick off the Chronicle and weave our beginning stories together.”

Transcript:
Hi. My name is Olivia. I’m part of a Freehold in Fort Myers, FL. Things have been happening here. Bad things. Things that don’t make sense. (Whispers off to the side) I know, I’m telling them about it. There was this man named Father Ripley. He was strange but he said he was here to help us. Only he didn’t. He tried to sacrifice one of us while in the hedge. It didn’t work. And then when he failed, something…someone…took him. There was also this really famous guy that sold cars in the area. He was human. He wondered into the hedge. Now he’s back, but different. My friend Kegan keeps telling me that things will be okay. But she looks really scared when she says it. (Whispers off to the side) I’m getting to that part. It’s gonna be my birthday in March. The Freehold wants to throw me a party. Kegan even rented out this place called Koreshan State Park. There’s a bunch of old buildings and weird plants there. Kegan said some kind of cult used to live there. (Whispers off to the side) Yes I know what the goblins said. Yeah, she might be there. With all the stuff that’s been happening I’m not sure what else might be going down. There’s been rumors about something…someone, wanting to talk to us. With all I’ve seen lately, having more people around wouldn’t be a bad idea. Please come to Fort Myers. Please be here for what I hope isn’t my last birthday.
*C/A Masquerade*
VSS: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1GEndI8wLVb3TMfPljZeyIqgNBS_IHflUjPzUph4BfzA/edit?usp=sharing 

A kindred of considerable power and influence is holding his famed Succubus Club, right in the heart of Miami.

He says all are welcome, and it’s rumored that everybody who’s anybody will be there.

According to him, everything is for sale… for the right price.

Will you come to an experience that may not be come back around for centuries?

Do you have things of your own to try and sell for secrets and power?

*Vampire: The Requiem*

VSS: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1HzxcjkFIhBeCOvS1WSeGaBDt3c94u07xXQJe9jxAwRU/edit?usp=sharing

​ ​

Super speed. Super strength. Super toughness.

The occasional exsanguinated corpse.

Something is treading the line of a Masquerade breach in the Holy City. It’s clearly Kindred, but who could it be? Journey to Charleston, SC and find out.

After all – doesn’t everyone want a new friend?

*Accord*
VSS: https://docs.google.com/a/gts.mst-office.net/document/d/1487kTEOnguL5-CgkJoPUnjO9K2nziWWRipcR7hS1G9I/edit?usp=sharing

In the wake of the rebuilding of the Tower of Distant Hope, archmages across the world have found themselves stripped of their greatest powers.  In this time of weakness, opportunity arises.


For the first time in memory, Langley is exposed.  Without his magics, he is more vulnerable than he has been since the Massacre.  Can the Accord take advantage of this opportunity to eliminate one of the Truth’s most powerful Servants?
