I was just wondering if anybody wanted to run any one of the White Wolf game types(Vampire, Werewolf, Changeling... etc.).

I wouldn't mind joining one, but is there a topic in here that's already collaborating that?

What would you like to play? I'd be willing to run a tabletop mortals or mage: the awakening game if there are players willing to come.
The hordes of hades all need to ship their dorm rooms home. Right now.
The leviathian has a job that will take 12 hours to run, but they need it in 2.
The four horsemen want to know why my store isn't open 24 hours.

My day's great. How's yours?

I've played Mage the ascension before, how much different is ascension to awakening?

Where to start....

Mechanically, the games are similar. You roll D10s and count rolls over 8 as successes. Your mage has spheres and combine them to create effects. Awakening relies more on dynamic casting (tell me what you want to do and what spheres you are using) than on rotes.

The major difference is in the factions. In Ascension you joined a tradition that dealt with both how you did your magic and what your goals were. In Awakening you choose a Path, which deals with how you do your magic, and an Order, which deals with what you do with your your magic. These factions are more openly in competition with each other, which brings some fun inter-character conflict.

Overall, Awakening is more philosophical and arcane than Ascension was, imho.

Wikipedia has a good primer on the setting, if you don't want to track down the book:
http://en.wikipedia....:_The_Awakening
The hordes of hades all need to ship their dorm rooms home. Right now.
The leviathian has a job that will take 12 hours to run, but they need it in 2.
The four horsemen want to know why my store isn't open 24 hours.

My day's great. How's yours?

Yeah, that's fine. A little sad that in Awakening that Prime weapon summon was shelved to level 4. Oh well.

If we get a handful of people, yeah I'll join a session.

Sorry the for delay. I was sorting through old module ideas to see what I could make work for an Anime Convention. I'll post a blurb for the game on this forum sometime this week. Would 5pm Friday work for you guys? If not, what times would?
