Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Cinematic Unisystem
The gang's all here. . .the Scooby Gang, that is, or at least your local branch of it. You've been on the trail of a local group of vampires who somehow managed to get their hands on a mystical thingamabobber of some sort... Turns out that the artifact is Haruk's Medallion, an amulet that gives vampires and other nasties the illusion of a soul- -which means any vamp with it doesn't have to be invited to enter someone's home! So you're all chasing down the vamps, who flee into a creepy abandoned house, of course. You've no choice but to follow them inside. . .
"Dark Rooms" is a BtVS event for up to six players. The Buffy RPG runs on the Cinematic Unisystem, which is very easy to learn and uses only 1d10 for all rolls (no prior experience necessary.) Familiarity with the Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Angel television shows will help players get into the spirit of the game but is not required to play. Partially-created characters will be completed at the table before the game begins. The character "type" bases will be: Clown, Delinquent Joyrider, Geek, Goth, Jock/Cheerleader, Medic, Musician, the Popular One, Tough Guy/Gal, and Watcher. The potential "templates" added to them will be: Demon Hunter, Former Initiative Commando, Magician, Martial Artist, Occult Investigator, Psychic, Robot, Slayer, Superscientist, Totem Warrior, Vampire?, and Werewolf.

The fate of a kingdom lies in your hands and you must choose a path to glory. What cause will you fight for? Who will you leave behind? How will you be remembered?" - Hero's Banner, the Fury of Free Will - a roleplaying game by Tim C. Koppang

THE WORLD IS MY ASHTRAY
Some gifts for the Kindred under star-strewn nights,
Some for the Awakened on this ball of stone,
Some for the Garou ’neath Luna’s pure light,
One man who took them all his own
In a world of darkness, where the shadows lie.
One man who stole them all, one man who twined them,
One man who claimed them all and in his life combined them
In this world of darkness, where the shadows lie.
Investigative Consultant Mission Briefing
MISSION TYPE: Extreme Fumigation / Retrieval of Unknown Artifact
Travel to New Dijon, Quebec, Canada, and recover an artifact from unknown entities (Shadow‐Blue to Delta Green class entities most probable), before an Enigma‐class mortal can retrieve it.
LOCATION: New Dijon Graveyard.
The city of New Dijon lies in the Quebec province of Canada, and was, for the most part, a typical town until 1 year ago. It was home to only a few thousand, most of which didn't survive "Hell Night", an event which occurred late in 2007. We've received a very personal account from our client, apparently a collaborator in the event, that the following events actually occurred: The city's dead rose as one, and an army of dead bodies marched on the city. The police reacted as quickly as possible, and ended up calling for military backup. Due to the extreme nature of the request, they got it. The military moved in, and with apparently unknown assistance, was able to battle the force back to the graveyard from which it had originated. After the graveyard was wiped clean, the attacks were ended. The following was taped during an interview with our client, regarding the disturbance: "Yes, I was there that day, in New Dijon. I was following the one we knew as Oracle, and we received signs while on the interstate that something was gone wrong from the Messengers. We pulled into the city, where rots (P.L.E.‐possessed bodies) were destroying the city en masse. When we reached the graveyard, the destruction was unthinkable... there was a giant storm, throwing thousands of spirits into the air, and a hole in the sky that seemed as if it had torn open into Hell itself. With the aid of the man Traveler, Oracle was able to shut the hole. In the aftermath, I believed I spied the source of the outbreak... a single, small object, which despite my ability to view, was beyond my grasp." "Recently, the one known as Oracle has gone renegade to our cause, and is traveling with all speed towards New Dijon... I believe she seeks the item from the graveyard, for untold evil purposes. She must be stopped, and the artifact recovered." Our data shows the graveyard to be two miles within the town, which has only recently begun recovering from the event. Many people were institutionalized following the deployment of the Canadian Forces, and the events surrounding what our client called a "Hellstorm". Some of them were eyewitness to the events, and may still be sane enough to back up his accounts.
The primary objective of this mission is to reclaim the spiritual object at the centre of the graveyard, and return it to HQ. Our contact on this mission says it resembles a small ash‐tray. All other things aside, this needs to be recollected. It is possible that some shadow‐class entities may also linger in the graveyard following the New Dijon "Hellstorm" incident, and as usual, they are to be fumigated if they stand in the way of the object. The woman known as Oracle, according to our client, will be able to see even unmanifested spirits, and employ destructive powers of an unknown nature against them. Though she appears as a normal woman, most marked by her long white hair and a wild look in her face, it is possible that she may be a Jason, or employing some other unknown power to use against both in‐the‐meat agents and ghosts. She is to be considered extremely hostile, and to be terminated if encountered. Oracle: Enigma‐Class Red. Another first on this mission is our client has demanded to assist us. He claims to have the same powers to view the undead as Oracle, and for us to refer to him as "God45". He will be in New Dijon by our arrival, and trying to deal with any defenses the graveyard has from what he describes as "a meat perspective". God45: Enigma‐Class Green. Time is of the essence. Get on the plane.
The Orpheus Group has had no previous experience in New Dijon, due to the hesitancy of the Canadian government to legalise projection technology. What we know of Oracle, we have heard from God45. You're truly on your own on this one. Be careful, and stick together.

Signup + Guest Signups
Me... as said previously: I'm wanting in on Grindhouse and I'll have a non-ENworld guest type person with me (Daniel knows her already...) who'd like in on that game as well. A 3rd player will be joining us in the PM and wants in on Hero's Banner...
So how should we handle this sort of situation?
Unofficially, the sign-up requests are:
EKB, requesting to be (a) Bastard in the Grindhouse game
Donna C., requesting either Scarface or Sunshine in the Grindhouse game
Donna C. - a Fighter Expert in "The World Is My Ashtray," leader of the Sentai/Red Team
Jim C. - ??? in Hero's Banner
Danke schoen, y'all...
PS - Added a "mission briefing" to the original "Ashtray" pitch. A PDF of pregen descriptions and thumbnail pictures will be coming soon.

I spoke with Doctor Steve today and he informed me that we should be able to lock things down on the Helm's Deep scenario by Wednesday. More from me on that in two days.

Hooray for Hero's Banner!
And to all my players in the AM BtVS game, if you want to think about what combination of template and archetype you might be interested in playing, that's great, but there's absolutely no reason to choose ahead of time. I will probably have people submit their top three choices on index cards or something of the ilk, since it's possible more than one person might be interested in the same character type. (After all, the Slayer is the Chosen One, even if there's at least two running around by this point...)
