  • FGoTM – Ft. Worth, TX – July 27th

    Posted on by scrc

    Hello, Region of Love! I am pleased to announce another upcoming featured
    game of the month for the South Central Region! We will be hosted by Ft.
    Worth, Texas which is nicely located for travel! The staff has done a lot
    of work already toward putting on a great show, so I look forward to seeing
    everyone there! Please take a look at the details below:

     
    *Domain Coordinator: **Kenneth Emch**
    Email Address: **warshire1@yahoo.com**

    Acting Coordinator(s): **Katie Henderson**
    Email Address: **Ritorimisu@gmail.com**

    Acting Coordinator(s): **Mariel Rushing**
    Email Address: **Mariel_rushing@yahoo.com**

    Domain Storyteller: Devon Weir
    Email Address: **FtWorth.DST@gmail.com**

    Primary Venue/Storyteller: **Katie Henderson**
    Email Address: **ritorimisu@gmail.com**

    Secondary Venue/Storyteller: **Daniel Walker**
    Email Address: **nickeldan@gmail.com*

     

    *Schedule:

    **Saturday-**

    **Noon – Staff Arrives at the Marriott for FgotM meeting
    12:30pm – Changeling set up and Admissions
    1:00 pm – Game on Changeling
    6:00 pm – Changeling Game off
    – Changeling clean up
    – Requiem set up
    – Requiem Admissions
    6:30 pm – Regional meeting
    7:00 pm – Requiem Game on
    12:00pm – Requiem Game off
    – Requiem clean up
    12:30pm – Evacuate premises
    – Travel to afters (IHOP)
    1:00am – Eat and Soft RP

     

    **Storytelling Particulars: **We ask that character sheets be submitted to *
    *FtWorth.DST@gmail.com** **no later than July 20**th**. Characters
    submitted by this deadline will be given a small in-game benefit by the DST
    as a token of appreciation for helping us plan for this event. Characters
    may be submitted after the 20**th**, or on the day of the game, but will
    receive no in-game benefit. In addition, two downtime forms are available
    for players to fill out and submit with their character sheets. Players who
    submit the downtime form will be considered full-1 at the start of game for
    either blood or Glamour. It will also make the characters for which the
    forms are submitted eligible for potential in-game content. This is not a
    guarantee of in-game content, but the more we know, the more we can plan to
    entertain the players. Each form should include any downtime actions
    relevant to attending the FGotM, such as how the character prepares for
    travel or housing, gifts created to present to other characters, or NPCs
    the character would try to contact. All downtime actions MUST be approved
    by the player’s principal storyteller prior to consideration for the FGotM,
    so be sure the forms are copied to the proper Storytellers as well.*

     

    Players who do not submit the downtime form should reference the relevant
    VSS for information on feeding or harvesting.

     

    For the duration of this event, travel restrictions set in the VSS to and
    from Ft Worth are lifted. It is simply not feasible to police every
    incoming character to a regional event. That said, we would appreciate
    players volunteering to encounter the described opposition in order to help
    us maintain the theme and spirit of our current venues.

     

    Keep in mind that proper character sheets require the statistics for the
    character, a proper and complete experience point log, and a list of any
    relevant approvals. For powers not found in the core book, a reference must
    be provided prior to the game. We are a domain getting back on our feet,
    and every ounce of help you, the players, provide, the more stellar a
    production we can put on for you.

     

    Teasers will be published as soon as possible.

     

    Also, we are requesting any players who would like to portray NPCs to
    contact *FtWorth.DST@gmail.com* <FtWorth.DST@gmail.com> as soon as
    possible. Thank you!

     

    *Location/Directions:
    **Marriott Hotel: San Marcos Room and Adjoining Terrace**

    players get involved in Ft Worth, as well as offer guidance on how to break

  • First Annual MES National Event: San Antonio, TX!

    Posted on by scrc

    SCR,

     
    Good evening. Some of you may have realized we were working on something big recently, and until even tonight I could not even let most of my RC staff know of this possibility. For some time the South Central Region has prided itself on a great number of firsts: the first Camarilla National Event, the first Regional Event, the creation of the Featured Game of the Month program, and now we can add to it the honor of hosting the first Mind’s Eye Society National Event in April 2014, here in San Antonio, Texas!

     
    This will be an upgrade to SCaRE and will have all the great things we were going to contribute to what was a Regional Event led by our own Rebecca Morgan, now with the additional support of the National level of the organization to make this event truly awesome. A sincere thank you to Houston and OKC who both put in bids that could have easily hosted this event, and it is because of the strength of all our bids and our membership that we were asked to take this intrepid step for the new organization.

     
    Thank you all for being amazing, and lets get ready to host the organization here in the SCR.

    (National Event Announcement below my signature)

    ———- Forwarded message ———-
    From: MES NCA <nca@mindseyesociety.org>
    Date: Thu, May 16, 2013 at 11:47 PM
    Subject: [Us-announce] MES National Event and the Regional Event Schedule
    To: List – US Announce <us-announce@lists.mindseyesociety.org>

     
    Members of MES, ****

     

    The NCA’s office has some exciting information to put out! ****

     

    The first is in regards to the MES National Event. It has been expressed,
    often and loudly, that there is a desire for MES to have their own National
    Event. Unfortunately, there are still only 12 months in the year and they
    are full already. The challenge was figuring out how to add a National
    Event without diluting the quality of the Regional Events.****

     

    For 2014, we are going to try something new and will “upgrade” one Regional
    event to host the National Event. The Regional Officers have supported this
    idea and we are moving forward with it. For the 2014 MES National, the SC
    has graciously agreed to let us upgrade SCRE while we create a formal
    procedure for future national events.

     

    The First Annual MES National Event will be in San Antonio, Texas in April
    2014! We are very excited to have Rebecca Morgan of the SC as the National
    Event Lead. More details will be released once they are finalized and all
    calls for positions should be anticipated soon. ****

     

    The second announcement regards the regional event schedule. One of my
    goals from the moment I was hired was to create an established schedule for
    regional events so that members could better prepare. This also allows for
    a 2-year all call for bids, giving us much more time to plan events.****

     

    The schedule has been created by working with the regional officers to get
    feedback on desirability as well as limitations created by the holiday
    season, a fall CCP Hosted Con, and other factors. It’s impossible to
    accommodate everyone, but I’m proud of the results. 2014 is a little off
    because of changes needed to get regions decoupled, but beginning in 2015,
    the schedule is set. The schedule is below and will also be available on
    the NCA website. All calls for the remaining 2014 conventions, as well as
    the 2015 cons, will begin shortly.****

     

    2014:****

    January – SWRE
    April – MES National hosted by the SC
    May – NERE
    June – GLRE****

     

    2015 (and all odd years):****

    April – SERE
    May – NWRE
    June – NCRE
    July – ECRE****

     

    2016 (and all even years):****

    March – SWRE
    April – SCRE
    May – NERE
    June – GLRE****

     

    My thanks to the RCs, RSTs, and Becca Morgan, ANCA Contracts and
    Scheduling, for all their work to make this a reality. Questions about
    anything in this email can be directed to my office.

  • South Central Regional Charity for 2nd Quarter 2013

    Hello Region of Luv. First allow me to apologize for sending this from my
    personal email but we are still in transition so please bear with me. As
    many of you know, West, TX was recently devastated when the fertilizer
    plant in their town exploded, taking a large portion of their town. At
    least 14 people, many of them first responders, lost their lives in the
    incident and our thoughts and prayers go out to their families. Then a day
    later, there was a flash fire at the Exxon Refinery in Beaumont, Tx which
    injured at least a dozen people, 4 of them critically. It is now, in the
    wake of disaster when we as a people truly shine and step forward and give
    of ourselves to help others. With this disaster in our own backyard, we as
    a club find ourselves faced with an opportunity to step forward and show
    others why we are the Region of Luv.

     

    In light of those recent events, we will be supporting those communities as
    our South Central Regional Charity. Everyone is encouraged to help in any
    way that they can. There are several ways you can help and some of them are
    listed below.

    Please Note that if you are turned away from donating blood for whatever
    reason, you may still claim prestige for the failed donation.

     

    So what if I can’t donate blood? Well you can provide transportation for
    others who can donate.

     

    *Transportation for **Blood Drive** = 10R per trip *(max 20 per month)

     

    Money: The American Red Cross exists to provide compassionate care to those

    aid in the area.

    Donations can be made at www.redcross.org.

     

    *$2 = 1R *(max 30/month)

    * *

    Items: In a time of disaster when so many have lost so much, donations of
    items are greatly appreciated. Listed below are items which are needed and
    prestige for each item.

    donations. We encourage you to go out and help at these collections sites.

     

    *1 Hour = 5R **(max 30/month)*
