Dark Reflections
An Underground Theatre Production using By Night Studios edition of Vampire the Masquerade. The game premise is a continuation of events in the Charlotte venue of UT. Since last November, the kindred of the city have done a fine job of stabilizing the city, but something darker then even kindred lurks around the corner. Rumors of something called the cure have spread. The cure for what, maybe you could be the one to find out, the one to hold the legendary cure in your hands.The World of Darkness (or WoD) is the name given to two related but distinct fictional universes developed by Mark Rein-Hagen. Both World of Darkness settings have been used for several horror fiction-themed role-playing games that make use of the Storytelling System. These include Vampire: The Masquerade, Werewolf: The Apocalypse, Mage: The Ascension, Wraith: The Oblivion, and Changeling: The Dreaming. A live action role-playing game (LARP or LRP) is a form of role-playing game where the participants perform some or all of the physical actions of the characters they are playing within a pre-determined space for a pre-determined span of time. LARP may be considered a form of improvisational theatre.

Writing for Roleplaying Games
Not how to get a job writing for role-playing games, but how to write for them so they'll want you to do it again. What are editors, developers, and publishers looking for? How do you give it to them? What do you avoid?
