|selling HUGE collection of cards
||[28 Aug 2009|04:27pm]
Hey there! I've been collecting and playing V:tes for a long time, and I have cards all good condition ranging from a Sabbat to the sword of caine expansion.
I basically was buying a box of each over time and slowly was unable to play anymore. This is the two best kept boxes of cards. (I have some unplayed cards, but I can't find them right now.)
I'm moving and I'd like to recoup some money for that. And also lighten the load.
I don't have a definitive list, but I can check for things if someone's really desperate to know if I have one or two cards.
I'm asking for $300 or best offer at this point.
Please make offers that you think are fair/make sense.
I'll pay for shipping which might be around 50 bucks for this huge box I have.
There's more than 3000 cards in these two boxes, and all the cards from the boxes you see (pre made decks) are in the boxes.
Please PM me or you can comment on LJ.
See the group of cards here:
I'd rather them go to a really passionate player, but I'm putting them up on ebay soon.
***I'm also throwing in a large print of a sexy vamp girl from the creator of DAWN, Joseph Michael Linsner. It's signed by the creator and is valued at $30.
Let me know if you're interested! Thanks so much!
|Looking to Sell a Small Jyhad Collection
||[28 Jul 2009|08:48pm]
I'm looking to sell a small collection of original Jyhad cards, all except for one in Mint/Near Mint condition. You'll need to cover shipping which I'll work out tomorrow (prefer to US/Canada only). Full list is an an Excel file at: http://www.marcbiagi.com/misc/jyhad.xls. I'll even throw in my paperback. Here's a quick summary of what I've got:
Mint to Near-Mint Condition
78 Vampire Personalities
9 Vampire Library Cards (Green backs)
18 Rare - 9xR, 9xR2
72 Uncommon - 48xU, 24xU2
432 Total Cards
"The Eternal Struggle: A Players Guide to the Jyhad" (Paperback in Good Condition)
I wanted to offer it to the peeps in LJ first before going to EBay. Prefer payment via PayPal.
Send me a note directly if interested with an offer and I'll send a pic of some of the collection directly back (I gotta take it first...lol). We can work out details outside of the thread.
And sorry in advance if I've violated any rules here on the board...didn't see anything forbidding sales posts.

I hope you don’t mind me posting here. I am a casting associate working on a documentary for MTV’s series True Life. We are currently looking for real vamps and psi vamps who would be interested in participating. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d be interested in applying or just learning more about the project.

It's been a while, since someone posted anything in this community, so I'm not really expectig a lot of comments here (thou the more, the better).
Since I saw Mistress Fanchon in the preview of KoT I was dreaming to make a deck with her. So now, after a few days of thinking and designing, I present to you my idea of a deck (thou I should probably mention, that quite a few ideas were offered by corvis_linda)

|Keepers of Tradition?
||[15 Nov 2008|10:28am]
How would you little bastards feel about a release event for Keepers of Tradition?
It comes out on the 19th of November and I haven't heard a damn thing about it.
I would like to do a release event either that weekend or the weekend of the 29th.
Misty in Madison would prefer the 29th, but I don't know who would be in town for any of it.
Let me know what's up as soon as you can.

Black Miracles and Lies
The last time I saw such prophecies, Constantinople burned, but its ashes gave us the Sabbat. As then, many will burn, their reddish embers filling the Final Nights like dead stars. Is this our end? No, but it is a transformation. My sire once spoke of his sire and said "change breeds itself and at one point, the head must bite the tail to start the cycle once more."
-Sascha Vycos, Angel of Caine on the prophecies of the Kaymakli
The sound of her boots on the hard stone floor echoed around the confined space as Mercy, Knight Inquisitor stepped into the small
chapel in the Temple of Eternal Whispers. She stood for a moment
before the statue of Caine, father to all her kind, before drawing her
sword from beneath her long black coat, setting it on the ground
before the altar, and kneeling in prayer. Mercy prayed for guidance,
and she prayed for strength.
For years, Mercy had been chief Inquisitor of Montreal, leading the Kindred of the city in their efforts to expunge the too-frequent infernal threats to the city. In that time, she had never dealt with a threat on par with the one she was currently confronted with. Helena, a Toreador elder, who wore the infernal taint like an intoxicating perfume, had appeared among the Kindred of Montreal and turned the city on its head.
Everyone who had encountered her had fallen under Helena's spell. The Librarians were tripping over themselves to hand over their secrets. The Widows sheltered her, worshiped her. Even Archbishop Benezri, once strong and vigilant, had grown sullen and silent, implicated by his feeble inaction.
Mercy had reported the situation to her master in the Inquisition. She had demanded soldiers, action, and blood. They had responded with questions, lines of inquiry, and promises.
Among the pack leaders of Montreal, only Ezekiel had been quick to pledge his support to her. He had insisted that the Black Hand was prepared to serve the Inquisition. Ezekiel was naked in his
opportunism, more interested in deposing Benezri than confronting the
true threat. He could be used, but not trusted.
Mercy was prepared to do what was needed, alone if need be. Support would come once the stakes had been made clear. She would isolate those who opposed her, starting with the weakest among them, and tear their minds and bodies apart. Mercy would provide a graphic
demonstration of real power, of the price of opposing the Inquisition,
of the costs of supporting the infernalist. She would learn of
Helena's purpose in Montreal, and then she would set her trap.
Mercy prayed for success. She prayed for a miracle.
Jan Pierterzoon sat comfortably in a sumptuous boudoir on the ninth floor of the Chateau Frontenac, the main landmark of Quebec City. Deep in thought, he waited patiently to be introduced to Prince Annabelle, Tremere Lord and Regent of the Quebec Chantry. The city was completely under Tremere influence, a powerful stronghold.
"Monsieur Pierterzoon?" said a ghoul at the door. Jan snapped out of his reverie. That was the same ghoul that had picked him up at the airport. Arsene de Blainville was his name. More than 250 years under the same Tremere domitor, if he remembered their little talk correctly. That's some kind of patience.
"May I present to you Prince Annabelle. Madame," said the ghoul while moving out of the way.
Prince Annabelle entered the room. Brunette, with long hair, wearing fashionable glasses and a perfectly fit suit, she seemed more like a scholar than a sorceress.
"It's a pleasure to finally meet you, Mr. Pierterzoon."
"Je suis enchant," he replied with a strong Germanic accent.
"Yes. Your file mentioned the fact that you speak fluent French, if I remember correctly," she retorted with a smile.
"You must be kidding me," she replied. "You must know that we maintain files on-well-everything!" She chuckled. "Let's forget about Tremere procedures for a while and tell me about the reason you are here. Please, tell me. What is the disaster that brings you here?" Could she already know? He thought. Had she just read his mind?
"The Camarilla requires your help in a most important matter. We have a problem in Montreal."
Again, she laughed. "We always have a problem in Montreal. We all do here. But to what are you referring?"
"A powerful Kindred is hiding in Montreal, with a piece of metal that's causing us a lot of trouble. That vampire must be destroyed, as well as the object." After a pause, he continued. "It's a female Toreador. She is on our new top ten. Helena is her name."
Prince Annabelle was now dead serious. "And the object is?"
"A piece of scrap."
"You came all the way here in Quebec City to ask for my help, but you figured that you could hide sensitive information from me. I'm disappointed. What is the object?"
"If the rumor is true," Jan began, "it's an engraved disk with ancient writing about the end of the world."
"Yes. If the rumor is true."
She waited for him to continue.
"That disk might be related to the incidents of this summer. It's been used as a recruiting tool for our enemies. That's why it must be destroyed," he said, with great emphasis on the last four words.
So, the disk is more important than the Toreador, she thought.
He continued, "Soon, many of our agents will go to Montreal to destroy both vampire and disk. You are expected to participate."
"3But we will. We are, after all, the Camarilla's humble servants. After Clan Ventrue, of course," she answered back with a grin.
After a moment, she asked, "Do you require any sustenance? It's pretty easy to hunt all around the castle, this time of the year. Or perhaps you have more specific needs. If so, Monsieur De Blainville will help you. Ask him for anything, your heart's desire."
"Perhaps." With a bow Jan took his leave.
Minutes later, in his chamber, Jan Pierterzoon was satisfied. He saw it in her eyes. She was intrigued. She would participate. Sunrise was near. He put himself to bed. Tomorrow, he would be in Boston. His first task would be to find someone in charge. His second task would be to persuade them to help, at a reasonable price.
Helena entered the abandoned old tenement building impatiently. She followed the stench she had been tracking for several city blocks as it trailed down a rotting, crumbing staircase. She did not hesitate as she crossed the threshold, though she knew what was waiting for her below.
Scattered candles illuminated the large, barren basement. The cellar floor had been torn away, the foundation ripped up in rough circle to reveal the dirt beneath. The ground was stained, soaked in blood, excrement and bile. For most of her very long span, Helena, queen of queens, would have been repulsed by such a foul location. Of late, her unlife had traveled down much less savory paths. She showed no reaction as she stepped into the circle, her red leather boots sinking into the muck with a soft sucking noise.
He moved from the shadows at the edge of the circle and Helena looked him over as he approached. The fine suit, swept-back silver hair, and regal face, lined with age, must have once belonged to someone who considered himself important, respected, secure. This poise was belied by the alien yellow eyes betraying the presence of the demon inhabiting the decaying mortal husk.
"Helena. My humble home has never been graced by someone so
magnificent, nor one so welcome. Even the legends of your beauty do
not do justice to the reality of it. This is truly an honor." His
voice was somehow both hoarse and unctuous.
The demon raised a clawed nail to her lips, one eye closing in a lazy, grotesque wink. "Shhhh. Whenever that name is uttered, there's a little Inquisitor who pricks up her ears."
As his finger withdrew, Helena was rocked by a vision. She saw a pile of writhing bodies, animal and human, Kindred and kine. Atop the mound stood the Decani demon, working through the pile of flesh with a multitude of insect arms, its face inhuman and monstrous. The screams lingered in Helena's ears even after the vision faded. She was shocked to her core by the brief glimpse of what lay behind the thing's genteel facade, and paused for a moment to regain her composure.
"The Fragment. I want it. You are going to bring it to me." Helena fixed the full weight of her gaze upon the demon, a gaze that had bent and broken Kindred and kine alike for the last several millennia. Metathiax's reaction was to blink once and run his tongue across his lips contemplatively.
The demon circled her slowly, whispering into her right ear, then her left. "Ah, yes. The Kaymakli Fragment. They know you're here and now they know what you want. They've hidden it, haven't they? Hidden it from you. But not from me. Nothing in this city is hidden from me. Of course, I will get it for you... for a price..."
"A price? Haven't I already paid my price?"
The demon smiled. "You have paid a price. You have offered a prize, a most wondrous prize. But not to me. What have you given me? Nothing. Yet. But fortune has smiled upon us both. After I perform this service for you, there is something you can do for me. There is a trifle for which you are uniquely qualified, a task that will have
inconsequential cost to you, but will be of immense value to me. There
is a curse, a spell, ancient bonds that trap me, hold me to this spot.
You can break them."
"I will get you the Fragment. You will see it with your eyes, hold it in your hands. From it, you will learn the truth, the truth about the father of your kind, and the Dark Mother as well. With it, you will teach this truth to others and draw them to your cause. And then, Helena, you will set me free."
Black Miracles and Lies is a constructed Storyline Tournament.
Except as noted in these instructions, the tournament will follow the
Standard Constructed Tournament format and current V:EKN rules.
There are no special deck or crypt restrictions for this event other than the normal Standard Constructed Tournament rules.
Each player will receive one Kaymakli Fragment promo-only card. This card is legal for this storyline event and players may include it in their decks.
This Sabbat vampire may allow you to draw 5 cards from your library as
an action (discard afterward). This infernal minion may move 3 blood
from the bank to a vampire in your uncontrolled region as a +1 stealth
action. Any minion may steal this equipment as a strike.
Each game will begin with a copy of Kaymakli Fragment, uncontrolled, in the middle of the table. While it is uncontrolled, any minion may
equip this card as an undirected action. If the center copy of Kaymakli Fragment is burned, remove it from the game.
A Camarilla vampire with the Kaymakli Fragment may burn it to gain 3 pool as an action.
Each game begins with central, shared crypt of 6 vampires. These
vampires are custom-designed for this event, not legal for play
outside this event, and may be controlled by any Methuselah. These
vampires do not have group numbers and can be played with vampires
from any groups. While they are uncontrolled, any Methuselah may look
at these vampires at any time.
There are a number of vampires that are easily swayed to take part
in the events of "Black Miracles and Lies". At the end of your
influence phase, any of these vampires may be moved from your
uncontrolled region to your ready region if they have blood counters
equal to at least half their capacity (rounded up).
These vampires are:
Any infernal vampire
Any of the vampires from the Shared Crypt
Any of the vampires from the special Invitation List (a list of
specific vampires that reside in Montreal or are likely to be involved
in these events)
As a master phase action, any Methuselah may do one of the

region and move to your own uncontrolled region, including any cards
