Since 2014, RPGaDay poses daily questions about RPGs in August.
Since 2015, we resist by delivering daily thematic material for RPGs in August.
This year, the theme of the alternate August activity was to be “allies”. Ally-a-Day.
But what is that? The enemy appears to lower their arms. Instead of posing questions, RPGaDay2019 presents single word prompts, suddenly opening a path leading past the About towards the For.
While we do not wish to ignore the hand so offered, neither do we wish to cast out our allies because the enemy for once appears conciliatory.
Neither just RPG-a-Day nor just Ally-a-Day.
Not or, but and.
Not minus. Plus.
Day 6: Ancient + Allies
Vanya (immortal awakened dire bear) wanders the spirit realm and the mirrorlands of the Lands of the Red Star. The other powers of those places, from the demons of the continents cleaving ice wall to the kast in iron souls of the third directorate, give him, the keeper of ancient mysteries, a wide respectful berth. The servants of the state will only risk conflict with him, should he violate the borders between the worlds.
Serafina Vladimirovna Volkovna
Vanya is not the true name of the great bear spirit. It is the name, though, by which he is known to Serafina Vladimirovna (female werebear) and the seventy and one generations of her bloodline since they made the pact that made the daughters of the line into his hands in the mortal realm. They make sure that the secrets of the bear are not forgotten entirely and in exchange, they themselves partake in them, both their wholesome and their hideous aspects. Serafina Vladimirovna lives in an apartment block in Krasniy Mayak 8.
