Well, I suppose it is time I got around to introducing myself, especially after being a pest to several of the Old Hands here at OP (thanks everyone, for the help, especially to Wolfhound, KillerVP, and PhoenixMark).

I've been lurking around here for almost a year now, working on my site "Shadows Over New York":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaigns/shadows-over-new-york during this time, learning from the great sites here, and striving to make my site comparable. And now, that my campaign is in full swing, with 'official' synopsis of game sessions up, and Character Journals to follow as soon as the 1st episode wraps up, I thought I should say 'hi' and invite oyu all to come by and take a look at what I and my players, have created.

I practically stumbled on Obsidian Portal, and I am glad I did. The community here is fantastic, and it has quickly become such an invaluable resource to me as a GM, that not only will I be using it for my other campaigns, but some of my players have also asked me to spin up sites for when they run campaigns. Keep up the fantastic work guys.

Peace and Long Life,
Keryth

    The first Episode of "Shadows Over New York" is complete, and the Character Journals should be up by this weekend (3/17/13), or so my players have informed me they will have them to me by. I am excited to see what they each have assembled, and feel fortunate that each of my players is writing something.

    Episode Two begins this Saturday, so take a look and see what fun and mayhem my players and I are concocting

    Peace and long Life,

    I'm sure I "favorited" SHADOWS OVER NEW YORK quite a long time ago, but I guess I haven't officially said "HI" so....

    I know I'm new around here, but, your site and campaign have certainly impressed me. There's alot of information here, and alot of effort into providing it. The site itself is impressive and your synopsis are straightforward. And, i love the information from your players as well.

    Do they help you with the site or is it all done by you?

    Most of the work is done by myself. Everything from the video, to the layout, to the content. The one thing I've not done is the buttons. One of my friends (he plays Andromeda in the campaign) is a Graphic Artist, and makes all of those for the site. Oh, and the in-character journals are done by the players.

    Well, I left a comment on your site. Episode One seemed like it was a ball, and the writeup your players did were fun to read, even the /really/ short one. Keep up the good work!

    What do we see? We see interesting characters, an enjoyable story line, all kinds of things. Keep up the good work and here is hoping more people find this amazing campaign.

    Episode 2 is even more interesting than Episode 1 was.

    Well, Episode 2 is nearing completion, and should finish up this coming session.

    Alot has happened to the group, as they have gained a former enemy as an ally, though not everyone trusts the 'Terminator-inspiried' assassin that was reprogrammed by their resident Daughter of Aphrodite (with some assistance from her friendly A.I. associate)

    Adn episode 2 comes to a close. The ending of it even surprised me. The PC's were determined to not let Lazarus escape another time, and jeopardized everything to stop him.

    Synopsis is up, and Episode 2 Journals, as well as Episode 3 setup, should be following in the next few days

    To update everyone on the Campaign

    First, we're July's Campaign of the Month, which is truly awesome.

    Second, we've now entered into Episode 4 and alot has happened.

    To synopsize...no, not enough time, let me sum up.

    Someone or something has been draining the power from The Muse, Calliope. The group has discovered that this is most likely being done utilizing Homer's Writing Tablet, which has unique properties. The Tablet was stolen, at the behest of Lucky Lucciano, from The Museum of Athens, two years ago. However, it has since been taken from Lucciano by parties unknown.

    Andromeda Spiridakos has gained a protegee in the House of Life Magician, Susanna Hoffman, while cheating on the White Council Mage, Siobhan Chu. David Lyton has acquired a necklace from Lady Ariel of Summer, which allows him to transform into a black panther. V.S. Ramachandran has been recruited by the forces of Heaven to fight the demons of the Underworld and the machinations of Hell, gaining Soulfire, by receiving the Badge fo The Lone Ranger from Judas Iscariot in St. Patrick's Cathedral. Jane Blue has entered into The game, experiencing her first Quickening. Terri Foster has taken a more aggressive stance, and gained a third form to change into, while also being declared The Celery Queen, by many of the lesser Fae of New York. Charles Fisher has renewed his relationship with fellow wizard, Dr. Patricia Fairlane, while taking up the sword and mantle of a Warden of the White Council. While Cameron Tam, our ex-terminator, has gained a soul (thanks to V.S. and the inspiration of Calliope) and has left the group temporarily, to lead off the vile forces of The Shop, who seek to capture and return her to the cold, assassin she once was.

    Only in Dresden is something called "The Celery Queen" a compliment! Nice work Keryth.

    Well, the chaos and fun continue. Our intrepid band learned who stole The Tablet of Homer form Lucy Lucciano. Much to their chagrin. Curtis Manning, ex-CTU agent, thought dead for several years, revealed himself as the host of the Fallen Angel, Lasciel. Using Oberon's Wedding Band, he had controlled the Hand of Summer and The Hand of Winter, to steal the Tablet from Lucciano, and gave it to, 'The Master'. In exchange for the Sword the group discovered that Ellistrae, the Hand of Winter, had deposited in MAcleod's Antiques back in EPisode 1, Manning would give them The Ring as well as the identitiy of 'The Master'

    Actually, kind of awesome twist there. Keep it coming

    Latest update to the Campaign is up, and it's a doozie. Lots of character growth, as V.S. Ramamchandran deals with his recent recruitment by Heaven, and his breakdown not only gets him a call from the absent Cameron Tam, but a visit from the Archangel Michael himself. Andromeda Spiridakos continues to have issues in her personal life as the repuercussions of her dalliance with Dr. Blake continues when she runs into ex-Girlfriend Siobahn Chu at a restaurant, the scene getting her in the Papers. David Lytton deals with the fact that the Sword so many are interested in, an ancient elven blade that causes those it touches to face the truth of their own lies 9a power V.S. believes can kill Fallen Angels), is to be born by his elven love, Serena Elessidil. And in all of this, the group debates whether to kill the Host of the Fallen Angel, Lasciel, or to believe that the Fallen Angel seeks redemption

    In addition, the campaign is now two people away from joining the "Century Club" here on OP.

    The latest - After a drawn out conflict, the Fallen Angel, Lasciel, has been utterly destroyed. The redemption? All a fallacy. The Hand of Winter and the Hand of Summer are free, and The Ring of Oberon is now in the group's care. However, the group find themselves not much closer to the source of the power drain from The Muse, Calliope. They have one lead, an audio recording of Lasciel's host, Curtis Manning, speaking with Nikolai Tesla, the head of The Shop, regarding the tablet, and a delivery of it to a second party.

    In addition, the group debates what to do with The Ring. turn it over to Warehouse 13, as Jane wants to do? Turn it over to Serena Elessidil, as David wants? Destroy it as Charles and Andromeda want?

    Latest update is up - The group decides what to do with The Ring of Oberon after a visit from The Leanansidhe convinces Terri Foster that giving The Ring to Queen Mab would be a BAD idea. Investigations into the person responsible for Calliope's power drain continues, leading to a former student of Charles Fisher's (who also happens to be working for his current romantice interest, Patricia Fairlane)

    Episode 4 continues, becoming the longest Episode of the Campaign so far.

    The group finally dispose of Oberon's Wedding Band, but not before The Winter Lady and The Lord of the Underworld duke it out in the plaze of the 9/11 Memorial, trying to obtain the ring for themselves. A four way battle with the group in the middle erupts as the Red Court Vampires of The Escobado Cartel make an attempt to seize the ring as well and the group faces off against Vampiric KGB Colonels, Hellmouth Vampires, Manticores, and Ogres.

    Episode 4 Rolls on.

    The group begins to think that the Zoe Washburn working with Adrika is not the REAL Zoe Washburn. Radiation is detected at Adrika's home in Brooklyn, by the Faeries fo The Celery Queens Guard. And the group meets with the Gangster Lucy Lucciano, to form a temporary alliance to deal with the forces at Adrika's home.

    The episode's conclusion draws near as a battle at Adrika's home in Brooklyn ensues.
