Calendar Link: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/calendar/index.xcp?id=1763

Short Description: The children of Wellington School are special, brilliant, and strange. Are they the cause or the reason for the strange and sometimes deadly occurrences that happen around the school? You, the faculty, are about to find out.
Text/Voice: OOC will use the FG Teamspeak Server. IC will also use Teamspeak and text as required.

Other useful info includes: I am a seasoned FG GM, however this is my first time with Chronicles of Darkness. We will use the World of Darkness ruleset, which is nearly but not quite Chronicles of Darkness compatible.

Genre: Modern Investigative Horror
Newbie Friendly: Yes
Pre-requisites (esp for AL and PFS): Headset and Mic. I have an Ultimate License so all are welcome.

Sounds interesting. I would like more information on day, time, and character creation.

All the details are in the post above :)

I'm interested in trying this out, if the timeanddate thing is correct, I should be available for this. Unless the random real life incident happens, of course.

Characters will be pregens, working on them now. Currently I have an Ex Con on the straight and narrow, a recently qualified Professor looking for work and an Ex Cop enjoying retirement and working on a Catholic Priest and one more.

VenomousFiligree,

Your story-line sounds interesting. I haven't bought Fantasy Grounds yet, but I plan to demo it over the week-- so I'm not too much the rookie and get a better idea on how it plays. A short, newbie friendly spot on your adventure board would certainly help kick me in the right direction. I used to play D&D and even DM'd a few times-- I enjoyed the hell out of it.

So what do I need to be in the line-up?

Is the ruleset working properly?
Does it open character sheets?

Hi
Adventure seemed interesting so i signed up.
I have previous experience with the World of darkness ruleset but i will need a refresher.

Edit: got a question, will i need any extra modules or rulesets installed or does the GM only need those?

No issues with my tests so far.

Good to have you, sounds like you have more experience than me! :)

I won't be making the FGDaze today. For the last 4 hours I've tried running connection tests only to keep getting failures. I've read the connection test failure thread (https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?23179-Connection-Test-Failure) but it's not changing the outcome. I'm throwing in the towel.

Unless it is not supposed to work since I only have the demo? I'll check back in before show time to see if that is the case.

Only the GM needs the connection test. Players don't need this test to succeed on their side.

Thanks, Trenloe! I wish I would have asked that four hours ago... Is there a good thread to read that might have already had this information?

Hi Nyth - you might notice that the Connection Test is only on the Create New Campaign and Load Campaign screens. It does not show on the Join Game screens.

Guys - I have sent the GM a message - Im sorry your game did not go ahead.
