Hello to ALL ex ZG PLAYERS....

I meant to ask this ages ago, but never got round to it.

I didn't attend the final battle IC, although I wish I could have; so all my knowledge of the 6th Age is somewhat piecemeal and second hand.

If you have the time - and I really hope you do - please can you list your characters, their venue, and in a brief sentence or two what they did or where they went in the 6th Age?

I don't require an essay or saga, it's more like a CV - what were they, where were they, and what did they try to do or become in the 6th Age?

I'd like to know for curiosity's sake, and also I think it would be a lovely 'afterward' for the ZG chronicle. (Above and beyond the 6th Age stories which have been written here already.)

C'mon, fill this in for everyone, for all of ZG and the crazy frustrating epic brilliance it entailed!

I know also that in ZG cannon everyone was encouraged to walk into their own sunset (as it were) and that there's a possibility some of those might conflict. In this case, please offer up the neutral option if it impinges specifically on another character/re-occurring NPC/etc.

For example, "In the 6th Age, I kill X' is not the best thing to say. However, "X is my enemy and I seek to thwart or destroy them whenever I can" is perfect and brilliant.

Perhaps what I'm really really after, is a set of notes and people who bridge the 6th Age and therefore getting a clue as to how long it lasts and whether there will be a 7th Age or even what it might be like...

For example:

Ash (bastet/kitsune/luna/etc) - Kicked Anhelios in the nuts and managed somehow not to die. Found Rkleish reincarnated as a god of mischief. Kicked him a lot for dying and leaving her. Eventually killed the Furies and became the Goddess of Vengeance. (It would have been 'righteous vengeance' but she liked Horus too much to stab him.) Still works towards a 7th Age of Harmony and is adamant that's what Rkleish owes her. If given the chance would happily kill Scythe or Pints or a couple of other people because of the part they played in Rkleish's death previously. (No, she is not very logical about this.)

Bedlam/Cinnamon (vampire methuselah of oh-dear-gods) - She can world walk and so left as Malkav was awakening. She'd seen Gehennna before, didn't want to see it again. She took all the Malks and the insane people who would follow her and left the universe for a different one. Her aim is to keep Bedlam alive and care for the insane. She'll visit again in the 6th Age but not get involved unless she needs to.

Black Keziah - (Dark Ages Sabbat Demon Slaying Grail Knight thing of Doom)- Hadn't been around for a long time as the ZG Sabbat made her despair. She probably turned up to the Final Battle somewhere, kicked demon arse and then spent her time 'porting between Cairn Doon and the ZG 6th Age, killing demonic things wherever she could.

Mercy (mortals, killer space-psi-mutant-android of doom, kinda Leslie Penhaligan's daughter)- Grabbed Eric the Ratkin and fought beside him on the Final Battlefield until it looked like either of them might die at which point she removed them both to wherever the matrix in her head allowed her to map to.

Seraphim - (Dark Ages Gargoyle) I have no damn idea. She would have fought, but whilst she loathes Tremere and demons with a visceral passion, she's old and smart enough to know that sometimes you hang back, away, or hide so there can be a greater victory tomorrow. She'd be on the side of high humanity types at any rate.

Doc Holliday -(mortals) Don't know. Last I knew his 'Holliday' persona was on the wane and the normal modern day 'Lucas Crane' was on the rise. But since Lukas thought Holliday was better than him, and Holliday would have done anything to keep Kate safe, who knows? There's a very high chance he's dead, but if so he died defending the one he loved.

Malice Harpy of Chester - Oh, fekk knows. She was an unbelievably ancient and evil bitch. She'd probably be on the side of the demons, but in a lovely and subtle way, trying to sell out the Cam if she could =P

Any other details, NPC or mayfly character not mentioned you're welcome to ask about, and that would be shiny.

But most shiny of all would be this post being archive to a host of stories and characters in crystal brief for the 6th Age.

You never know, that way maybe we could play a 7th...... =)

Alexander Ryder, Thinks Twice - (Uber spiritual Theurge) Got lost in the Labyrinth. Very very lost (Why did I take Explorer as a Nature again?). Is apparently due to resurface at the turn of the 6th Age to be mentor and guide to those heroes who would turn the world on.

O'course after an Age in the Labyrinth, he might not be entirely in his right mind when he returns.

On the other other hand, he volunteered for the Labyrinth run, so he probably wasn't in his right mind to start with...

I think I did this back on the main LJ, right after the game ended.

The Spirals

The Black Spiral dancers expand their Hive of the Red Star and by and large dedicate the wasteland left where London vanished to Hecate, the Incarna of Anthelios. They set up work camps and lead the war against the remaining caerns in Britain. They continue to hunt for the damned island that gives the resistance in the London region some measure of hope. They never find it.

They are ruled by Daniel Final-Night, a Rank 9 Galliard for a number of years before he vanishes alongside his two packmates/mates, Elektra and Twisted-Blade and a young slave girl. The Black Spirals are then lead by the Lieutenant, a monstrous Ahroun, permanently trapped in a dragonesque form after the last of the mokole dreams were consumed by the Green Dragon.

Daniel, Elektra and Twisted Blade become partial allies of the resistance around the world, with their detailed knowledge of the Wyrm's structures and plans. But their long term aim remains the destruction of Gaia and the Wyrm, as the true death of the world is the only way a future can be born.

Dove, the most vanilla Garou in zeitgeist, died in the battle of the Apocalypse. Spitting defiance in the face of the fallen Glass Walkers.

Rehema (Rae Mackenzie, Mummy): Wanders the world with Kansas, ostensibly purifying polluted water supplies and ensuring the weather is decent enough for the crops to grow. Actually, the main effect of this is to keep hope and compassion alive in the world.

Summer (Memory of Summers Past, Garou): Takes her cubs onto the Ridgeway, where she teaches them to defend savagely against all comers (and eat the ones on two legs). Nobody else wants the Ridgeway all that much, so as time goes on the less built-up areas of Oxfordshire become increasingly left to the wolves.

Natasha Sinclair (CamNoAnarch): Natasha's fate depends partly on what Christian does. Left to herself, however, she's not actually particularly motivated to carry on living. She's already completed her lifework. And the brooch does indeed survive the thousand years of darkness unscathed; to turn up again finally in hands that once knew her work well...

Sulien Tremilin (Garou): Gone forever.

...though Sulien does have a daughter, begotten on her by the head of House Balor, the King of the Shadow Court, who was born for the thousand years of Winter.

Rosalie does OK :)

Petra vanished, along with the last world-egg. There is, however, somewhere way out beyond the edges of the Deepest of Deep Umbra, another Near Umbra and another Realm. This one has a pile of scrappy Dreamspeakers Zach persuaded to leave, and a few lost Void Engineers trying to do something right. It's also got a startling array of local wildlife, some of it startlingly reminiscent of a world a long way away. There's a voice that sings to the spirits there; She calls herself Gjarti.

Jade faded - or, at least, wasn't seen again. On the other hand, a surprising number of monsters turned up dead or missing over the next centuries; and once in a very rare while the humans they were threatening talked of a skeletal humanoid figure in a white porcelain mask moving almost too fast to see. You always become your own nightmare, in the end.

Mhairie is the Maeljin Incarnate, the Queen of Sin; the last of the Chosen of the Wyrm and the only one of the Incarna to maintain a physical body. She loves antiques, comfy chairs and long chats about anything; but sadly almost anyone who looks at her loves her and only her. She's the Wyrm's weakness and the end of the Age, and she's waiting for Arthur to bring Excalibur and slay her. In the meantime, though, she gossips and sips wine and smiles and dreams of Jamie who isn't dead. That was the deal...

Ellen's dead and gone, slowing the unstoppable.

Then only character I really had surviving at the end of the world was Aken. He will have continued to expand his mystical haven beneath the remains of London, offering sanctuary to those in need of it, especially those of a magical nature, who come under his purview as a minor deity.

And yes, the idea of a 7th age is a good one. I was considering trying to get something going with a contact based system, but sadly the site I was thinking of using is no longer available :(

You know, I think I missed this too, so yeah... I have no idea for sure but I'm gonna take my best guesses

Access - Managed to survive by porting to a new dimension, along with the entity he'd sold his soul to.

Shadow - He died facing down the massed armies of the Wyrm, fighting to protect those few Kin that he'd sworn to protect. Abadoning his pack, his friends and the Nation for his own ideals, he died fighting for what he truely believed in.

As for my other characters, I think they were dead by the time I stopped playing due to going completely bug nuts!

ext_20269: (Cats - Sally&Myrddin)
From: [identity profile] annwfyn.livejournal.com
Firinne - she ended up living in an underground city with Pintz, and when nearly all the vampires were gone, she reinvented her particular faction of vampires as the Memory Keepers, sometimes also called the Breathless Ones (the latter being nicked from elsewhere) and they tried to survive so that that which had gone before could be remembered. I think (tho this may not have happened) that she lived to become old, cold and without humanity, but lived long enough to hand over Pintz sword to the next King, the one who rose again to usher in the Seventh Age and by that time there was nothing left at all of the woman who had once lived.

Tegan sacrificed herself utterly and put all that she was into her island in the Thames, which became the Isle of Apples, a kind of Avalon, a little bubble where the Wyrm didn't take hold, where people could live, where there was warmth and something clean and where flowers could grow. And she was the tree at the centre of the island. Nothing more. Nothing less.

Sunshine picked up the Last Daughter of Eve and together they vanished. And I don't know what happened to her after that. No one ever did. She prefers it that way.

Colonel Farqhuarson fell down a very deep hole during the Final Battle and died along with most of the remnants of the British Army. This did not stop him, and them, coming back asmoderately pissed off Wraiths. Made the Shadowlands a hostile environment for the Forces of Evil(tm)
Caspian, well, he saved London. Cost a few thousand dead to power the ritual but using 36 Masters of Time, Entropy, Forces and Prime can do wonders, even if it is the same Mage repeating himself. Detached London from the world and kept it safe throughout the 6th Age having expelled supernaturals, both good and bad, as part of the process. Sacrificed himself, 36 times over, in order to act as protector and guardian of London.
