The Flickering Chronicles
Philadelphia. On the surface, it’s got more problems than anyone is prepared to handle. Just below the surface? That’s where the hopelessness starts. That’s where you’ll wish you could run into a crooked cop, or a cranked out gangbanger. Thing is? If you wanna start making things better, that’s the place to do it. There are things down there in the dark that make sure this city stays such a hellhole. Time to decide what to do about it.
The Flickering Chronicles is an ongoing second and third tier Hunter: the Vigil chronicle broken into smaller stories. The first story, Church & State, saw the cell persuing a cabal of slashers the media had dubbed the Bible Beaters (they, however, referred to themselves as the Holy Paladins of Saint George). After the cell investigated some cults, bizzare sex clubs, a couple packs of werewolves, and a nightclub full of the walking dead, the cell managed to take down the Beaters and stop their plan from coming to fruition. The story is recounted, appropriately, in the adventure logs.
The second story, Collateral Damage, had followed the forming of a new iteration of the cell, and their investigations into several supernatural occurances in philly. The cell had tracked and even captured werewolves, brushed up against fellow cells, penetrated a nightclub of the undead, killed a hippie, dealt with zombies seemingly possesed by ethereal owls, made flesh and blood sacrafices to a massive spider, and discovered undead reincarnations of the Bible Beaters. Collateral Damage admittedly petered off afterthe release of Geist: the Sin-Eaters.
After quite the hiatus, we’ve moved into the third story of The Flickering Chronicles, Chemical Logic. This new chapter follows two hunters, fairly new to the vigil, and very new to Philladelphia, as they tumble down the rabbit hole of the supernatural side of Philly.
- I’ve updated relevant wiki pages to reflect what was done by past cells. Essentaily, a lot of replacing “has” with “had” and “the cell” with The HFU or The HFUv2. I also removed a few bits that could spoil things for the current story that I missed on the first pass.
- The wiki now has a Cells page to untangle the 3 main cells that have participated in The Flickering Chronicles.
- More characters have been unlocked!
- Haus Rules has been updated. I just removed rules we aren’t actually using, but it’s back to definitive.
