Mysterium Magnum Winter Premium weekend.

Well it’s fast approaching, as in it’ll be here in about a week, so I figured I’d mention a few things on my blog if any of you reading this are in the Camarilla, and are likely to be in Melbourne next weekend.

Melbourne Premium Weekend 6 – 8 July 2007

Big fancy type event thing where you can play three games on one weekend, here in Melbourne, our public transport is gold and win.
Friday night – Mage 7pm to 11pm

The Free Council, with the support of Shearer, Horner and Slaine (whether or not those mages like it), are hosting a charity gambling festival type thing. All Awakened are welcome. Come one, come all, bid some money and help some disadvantaged minority group somewhere in the world.

Also come because I’m running the damn event as storyteller, supported by my capable AVSTs.
And remember, attempting to break the game with copious amounts of cheese will force me to respond in kind… and you can’t afford the kind of cheese I can for my NPCs, so play nice.

Really the best time prior to the madness at conclave later this year for order mages to get together and plot shenanigans and kill the Wicked Witch of the West (beware Perthians, I just doomed you.)

So come along or I beat you with something sharp and pointy.

Saturday night – Vampire 7pm to 11pm

Some kinda black and white ball thing to commemorate a whole bunch of unaligned vamps getting gacked after they nuked the local Carthian ruler-ship.

Come and enjoy a game hosted by my compadre, Jason Chapel. There be vampires.

Sunday Afternoon – Werewolf 1pm to 5pm

Ok, I have no idea what the premise for this session is to be. It involves werewolves, it involves spirits (big war going on between fire and ice, with violence siding with ice… it’s not my fault.)

My somewhat deranged chain-wielding rahu who likes to swear at people will be there.

Come along or else our NMC will beat you with his NMC stick (might be made of meat, I just don’t want to find out.)
That and my other associate, Alicia, will be running it. Word has it she likes kissing girls and gets rather tanked rather easily, one possibly precluding the other. So if you like potential girl on girl action (no promises for aforementioned girl on girl action actually happening, I don’t have that kinda power.) or just playing big furry combat monsters (no, not furries, werewolves,) then come to this game.

I asked Alicia what the premise for the sessions was, her response being along these lines:

<Zoi> Sure. Guarding and taking back across the Gauntlet those humans who’ve taken Embalmer and dealing with the spirit who’s hunting them in the Hisil for those who want combat, and the treaty with the Pure for those who don’t want combat.
<Zoi> Though given what a couple of people have said about their PCs opinions of the treaty, that may very well turn into a combat plot as well.
<Zoi> We’ll see.
<Zoi> As the locations for both plots are close to each other, there’s also the option for PCs to move between plots if they wish.need to.

Should be all on it. Come and play and stuff and I promise I won’t kill your characters unless you do something really stupid (opening a portal into the heart of the sun would probably count as stupid.)

Autobots, roll out!

Well put simply, Transformers would have to have been one of the best, if not the best movie of 2007.

It is made of Gold and Win.

I’ll have to wait to see what opening weekend figures are like, but for now I can safely say I’ve never seen cinemas packed out like that for any other movie in the past 7 years.

I’ve also never seen an audience applaud a movie before, a common thing for this one from everything I’ve heard so far.

Oh and the transformers are tanked up killing machines, and people do actually die.

As someone who grew up playing with the original toys, I am much satisfied by this film.

I urge anyone thinking of going to see it, buy your tickets early, and see it ASAP.

AmK out.
