About Me

Welcome! I am Beara. I am a professional story teller and Jr Story Teller for SPbN. Kent's project was my first serious project playing WoD and after a few months I wanted to try to more involved. After starting in April 2022 on the ST team I have had WAY too much fun learning the lore and introducing my own brand of horror to the the Kindred in the city. Welcome to the city and lets have fun!

Table Rules

I use various tools to help make the table safe and fun for everyone:

Session 0s are used to start the game, opening up with communication, setting expectations, and discussing any safety tools that will be used at the table.

Lines and Veils set the boundaries of the games. Lines are hard limits for content the group doesn't want to participate in, this means that content will not be in game, referenced in game, or alluded to. Veils are soft limits, meaning that when the content arises it might be mentioned, but not described, or it could mean that when the content shows up, it results in a “fade-to-black.”

Open-Door is an assurance that anyone in the group can take a break from the game for their own safety and well-being without judgment.

Debriefing is a way to reflect on the game. Identify possible issues, highlight the good parts, and work through potential emotional bleed.

Safety Tools

  • Debriefing
  • Lines and Veils
  • Open Door
  • Session 0
  • ...and any other tools the table finds useful!

Content Warnings

Content warnings are notices that potentially sensitive topics may come up during the course of play so that players can prepare themselves to adequately engage or, if necessary, disengage for their own wellbeing.

These topics may come up in active play:

  • Animal Abuse
  • Betrayal Between Players
  • Blood
  • Body Horror
  • Creepy Crawlies
  • Demons
  • Drug Abuse
  • Emotional Abuse
  • Harm to Animals
  • Harm to Children
  • Human Trafficking

  • Spiritual Themes
  • Stalking
  • Suggestive Themes
  • Suicide
  • Terrorism
  • Torture
  • Violence Between Players

Veils

Veils are things that happen off screen in a game. They are things that are allowed to happen, but do not occupy “camera” time, as it were. The easiest way to deal with veils is to let the scene fade to black.

These topics will never be addressed in active play:

  • Sex

Lines

Lines are things that are not in the game at all. They are not alluded to or done off screen.

These topics are hard lines in the game we do not cross. They simply do not happen:

  • Sexual Assault
