Hello all, I recently moved to North Vancouver BC, Canada and I'm looking for a campaign in my area, not a LARP, just a VtM interested in introducing a new character. I have experience and I'm eager to get back in the game, if you are DM'ing, please drop me an email, thanks!

I am Angelus, a solitary vampire who wanders the endless globe. Anyone who'd wish to join me on my seductive journey can leave me an e-mail.

Info received on 8 Sep 2000, from Deorckid (aka: Deo) <deorckid@webtv.net>

Good evening to all. For aeons and aeons in this world I have kept myself secret. I've spoken in volumes of silence to finally be heard, seen, and understood. 'I don't want the world to see me... Cause I don't think that they would understand...' is my favorite saying from the song Isis from the Goo Goo Dolls. All my silent screams only fall upon deaf ears. No one listens to the night's gentle breeze anymore. I'm here to finally announce myself to the world. Whatever this may bring, I'm prepared for these results. Some of you may see this as unreasonable, others may actually finally listen. Which ever way it goes concerns me little, for all come to me in the end. HEAR ME! I am Deorckid (aka Deo), son of Azreal and the Toreador Prince of Vernon,TX. Those of you who don't know who Azreal is let me brief you. Azreal, the Angel of Death, so that would make me the Son of Death. Yes I am Death in the flesh and Blood as you might put it. So much I have longed to tell the world, yet time as it is limits me on what I wish to say. So hear me when I speak, for in silence holds the keys to incredable knowledge. So when you go out into the night, listen to the whispers caress you all over in the gentle breeze. Feel my presence in the dead stillness and silence. Forever I speak and watch as the 'Silent Watcher'.

Amorte!
Deorckid

Hi.
My name is Sherri Craig. I am now organizing a Fan fiction/ Original Fiction/ Poetry Reading at a convention in New Orleans called exoticon. For more information on the convention you can go to www.exoticon.net.

I have a couple favors to ask of you. The first is that I can have your permission to put your site url in the program. The second is that you can pass this info along to anyone you think would be interested. There will be a few professional writers there, as well as some publishers (no big name publishers, though, unless you include Role Playing Game companies, who sometimes publish fan submissions.) Story submission is not required, but if someone is unable to attend and wants their story read, they can send it to me. All stories read will have their authors' names, bios, and url printed in the program, regardless or whether they attend or not.

Please realize that I am not asking you to promote the con. You do not have to mention the name exoticon to anyone, just refer them to me. This is a con for fans, by fans and this event is my idea to spread fan fiction. But if you wish, I can promote your site. The estimated attendance this year is 1200 people.

I am working to cut a deal for writers (for example, my husband is over gaming. If a game master runs games for a certain length of time, his admission is refunded) However, this is a first year event and I doubt I can get that deal. Though I may be able to swing a pass for you and others who have archive sites, especially if I can get together a panel discussion about Fan fic. I can also display or hand out promotional posters and other items.

Thank you for your time.
Sherri Craig

THE AMERICAN CINEMATHEQUE CELEBRATES ALL THINGS SECRET, SINISTER, AND
SPACE-AGE WITH THE FIRST ANNUAL
FESTIVAL OF FANTASY, HORROR, AND SCIENCE FICTION

Featuring a brand new 35 mm print of PLANET OF THE APES, the U.S.
premieres of POSESSED (BESAT) AND HELL (JIGOKU), and THE ARCANE
ENCHANTER, as well as in-person appearances by Charlton Heston, Joseph
Newman, Clive Barker, and Richard Matheson, and an in-person tribute to
director Nathan Juran

August 17 - September 10, 2000

HOLLYWOOD - The American Cinematheque presents THE FIRST INTERNATIONAL
ANNUAL FESTIVAL OF FANTASY, HORROR, AND SCIENCE FICTION, August 17 -
September 10, 2000. A special highlight of the Festival will be
in-person appearances by guests including actor Charlton Heston (PLANET
OF THE APES), director Joseph Newman (THIS ISLAND EARTH), and acclaimed
writers Clive Barker (HELLRAISER) and Richard Matheson (THE INCREDIBLE
SHRINKING MAN, SOMEWHERE IN TIME). Guests subject to their availability.
This festival celebrates all things secret, sinister and space-age:
talking apes, Metaluna mutants, shrinking men, caged virgins, witches,
enchanters and more!  A highlight is the new Danish horror film
POSSESSED
from Lars von Trier's Zenotropa productions. From the psychedelic
paranoia
of DARK CITY and HELLRAISER to the spectacular Hong Kong fantasia of ZU,
WARRIORS OF THE
MAGIC MOUNTAIN, to the apocalyptic visions of THIS ISLAND EARTH and
PLANET OF THE APES, our series combines brand-new premieres, genre
classics and lost treasures to bring you the wildest (and rarest) in the
world of imaginative filmmaking. Trailers for many of the films can be
seen at www.bijoucafe.com. All screenings are at the newly renovated
Lloyd E. Rigler Theatre at the historic Egyptian (6712 Hollywood
Boulevard between Highland and Las Palmas) in Hollywood.
        Our series concludes with a special in-person tribute to
director
Nathan Juran, who created astounding, mythological worlds filled with
giant cyclops, sorcerers and moon creatures in fantasy classics such as
THE 7TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD and FIRST MEN IN THE MOON.  Born in 1907, Juran
studied architecture before becoming an art director in the mid-1930's;
he won an Academy Award for his work on HOW GREEN WAS MY VALLEY.  In the
early 1950's, Juran began directing a series of imaginative, low- budget
westerns and fantasy films, including 20 MILLION MILES TO EARTH and THE
7TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD, often featuring brilliant stop-motion animation by
visual F/X pioneer Ray Harryhausen.

Thursday, August 17, 2000
The Thursday, August 17th program begins at 7:00 PM, with a screening of
a brand-new 35 mm print of PLANET OF THE APES (1968, 20th Century Fox,
119 min.) directed by Franklin Schaffner. One of the greatest modern
sci-fi films, this combination of apocalyptic action and evolutionary
parable finds astronaut Charlton Heston stranded in a strangely familiar
world; dominated by a race of highly-intelligent gorillas, chimpanzees
and orangutans.  Featuring amazingly realistic monkey make-up by John
Chambers, and a superb script by Rod Serling and Michael Wilson, based
on Pierre Boulle's acclaimed novel.  Discussion following with actor
Charlton Heston.
The Thursday, August 17th program continues at 10:15 PM with the U.S.
theatrical premiere of POSSESSED (BESAT) (1999, Zentropa/Trust Film
Sales, 99 min) directed by Anders Ronnow-Klarlund.  A Danish scientist
(Ole Lemmeke) studying Ebola-type plagues receives startling evidence
that evil may in fact be a virus, in this fast-moving nail-biter from
Lars von Trier's Zentropa Productions, mixing supernatural horror,
astrological and science-fiction motifs - and culminating in a truly
frightening climax.  With Udo Kier (THE KINGDOM) as a fanatical renegade
priest out to stop the satanic virus at any cost. Udo Kier will
introduce
the film.

Friday, August 18, 2000
The Friday, August 18 program begins at 7:00 PM with the U.S. premiere
of Japanese horror classic HELL (JIGOKU) (1960, Kokusai Hoei, 100 min)
directed by Nobuo Nakagawa. This horrifically surreal vision of the
underworld resembles Disneyland designed by the Marquis de Sade. Shigeru
Amachi stars as a theology student led astray by nihilistic pal Yoichi
Numata; their reckless pranks lead to the hit-and-run driving death of a
drunken yakuza and the eventual poisoning of a group of party guests -
after which is everyone is sent straight to Hell!  The last half-hour of
the film, featuring grotesque ogres, burning wheels of fire and
mist-filled rivers of the damned, must be seen to be believed.  Print
Courtesy the Japan Foundation.
The Friday, August 18 program continues at 9:15 PM with the Los Angeles
theatrical premiere of FUDOH: THE NEW GENERATIONS (1996, GaGa
Communications, 100 min).  An insanely perverse live-action manga,
starring Shosuke Tanihara as Ricki Fudoh, an 18-year old yakuza who
controls a gang of grade-school assassins and gorgeous teenage strippers
capable of killing in unheard-of ways. When Fudoh's own father decides
to have him eliminated, an all-out war erupts featuring some of the most
astounding action this side of a John Woo flick. FUDOH is the break-out
film from one of Japan's most explosively talented young directors,
Takashi Miike.  Warning: FUDOH features scenes of graphic violence and
sexual situations.  No one under 18 will be admitted.
The Friday, August 18 program continues at 11:30 PM with the Los Angeles
theatrical premiere of DARK WATERS (1994, Italy/Yugoslavia, 93 min).
Something strange is going on in an isolated convent on a forgotten
island in the Black Sea, and British Louise Salter, whose late father
subsidized the religious order, is bent on unraveling the nightmarish
mystery.  Just who do these nuns worship - God or Satan?  Or
perhaps a mixture of both?  Director Mariano Baino conjures up a
supernatural world of half-glimpsed madness, painting a waking nightmare
from the same vibrant palette that Bava, Argento, Soavi and Avati have
drawn from.  Primitive, real-life locations jack the goosebumps up that
extra notch.

Saturday, August 19, 2000
The Saturday, August 19th program begins at 5:00 PM with a rare I.B.
Technicolor print of THIS ISLAND EARTH (1955, Universal, 86 min).
Scientists Rex Reason and Faith Domergue are kidnapped and transported
through space to help save a dying planet, Metaluna, in this sublime
classic of metaphysical 50's sci-fi - seen here in a stunning, original
dye-transfer print.  Don't miss this rare chance to hear one of
Hollywood's living legends, Joseph Newman (711 OCEAN DRIVE) share his
memories of directing THIS ISLAND EARTH (he may also share his memories
of working at the Egyptian Theatre the day it opened in 1922!)
Discussion following with director Joseph Newman.
The Saturday, August 19th program continues at 7:30 PM with a double
header from Italian Horror Maestros Michele Soavi & Dario Argento. First
on the bill is STAGEFRIGHT (DELIRIA) (1987, Italy, 95 min). The debut
feature from director Michele Soavi (CEMETERY MAN), a former assistant
to Argento and now regarded as one of the heavyweights in Italian
horror. An escaped psychotic killer ravages the ranks of a theatrical
troupe, all the time hiding his face beneath the giant owls' head mask
formerly belonging to the murdered lead actor.  A bravura roller-coaster
of suspense that asks: will heroine Barbara Cupisti be able to turn the
tables? Or will she succumb to the carnage herself?   "The best Italian
horror film of the 1980's" - Quentin Tarantino.
Next on the same bill is OPERA, 1987, MGM/UA, 100 min. One of director
Dario Argento's greatest masterpieces, OPERA is a tour-de-force of
deliriously cinematic set-pieces surrounding the murderous production of
an operatic version of "Macbeth."  (The script was inspired by Argento's
own attempt to mount "Rigoletto"!) Argento's camera moves like a thing
possessed: swooping, gliding, tracking a bullet through a peephole, and
in one mindbending shot, whirling around the opera house on raven's
wings.
.       The Saturday, August 19th program continues at 11:15 PM with
BURN, WITCH, BURN (aka NIGHT OF THE EAGLE) (1962, MGM/UA, 90 min)
directed
by
Sidney Hayers. Professor Peter Wyngarde, a fervent debunker of all
things supernatural, discovers that his scholastic success is due to
voodoo spells cast by wife Janet Blair.  When he forces her to give up
her talismans and spells, the demonic forces of darkness descend, in
this much-underrated horror classic that rivals THE INNOCENTS and CURSE
OF THE DEMON in intelligent, hair-raising chills. Adapted by
screenwriters Charles Beaumont and Richard Matheson from Fritz Leiber's
novel Conjure Wife.

Sunday, August 20, 2000
The Sunday, August 20th program begins at 5:00 PM with a brand new 35 mm
print of the lost 60's psychedelic horror classic A QUIET PLACE IN THE
COUNTRY (1968, MGM/UA, 106 min). Avant-garde painter Franco Nero suffers
from paranoid dreams brought on by the noise and pollution of urban life
-- so he coaxes his mercenary agent (and lover) Vanessa Redgrave to rent
him
a
dilapidated rural villa where he can finally get some work done.  But
Nero's personal demons pursue him as he finds the house haunted by the
vengeful ghost of a girl killed at the close of WWII. Director Elio
Petri (THE 10TH VICTIM) creates a terrifyingly funny, surrealistic
tour-de-force that is a kinetic visual feast of  bizarre images and
juxtapositions.
The Sunday, August 20th program continues at 7:15 PM with a double
feature of the work of Hong Kong fantasy master Tsui Hark.  First on the
bill is ZU, WARRIORS FROM THE MAGIC MOUNTAIN (1982, Tai Seng, 94 min).
One of the ultimate sword-and-sorcery extravaganzas, here a disaffected
warrior under the tutelage of two monks is drawn into a harrowing
struggle amongst sorcerers and demons for world domination. Can he
rescue the beautiful princess and prevent the re-emergence of the
godlike Blood Monster? Starring Adam Cheng, Yuen Biao, Brigitte Lin and
Sammo Hung, with incredible fight choreography by experts Hung, Corey
Yuen, and Ching Siu-Tung (from THE CHINESE GHOST STORY trilogy.)
Next on the same bill is WE'RE GOING TO EAT YOU (DIYU WE MEN) (1980,
Hong Kong, 90 min). Director Tsui Hark melds kung-fu pyrotechnics with
THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE in this jaw-dropping, edge-of-your-seat
horror-comedy. In turn-of-the-century China, a suave, egotistical police
agent pursues a nefarious criminal across the river into a forgotten
backwater village where all the inhabitants just happen to be
cannibals!  Supremely entertaining and ultra-rare.

Wednesday, August 23, 2000
The Wednesday, August 23rd program begins with 7:00 PM with THE MASTERS
OF TIME (LES MAÎTRES DU TEMPS) (1982, Roissy Films, 78 min). An 8-year
old boy is marooned on an alien planet dominated by swarms of giant
bees, and an aging astronaut and two telepathic gnomes are forced to
come to his rescue, in French animator René Laloux's marvelous follow-up
to his classic FANTASTIC PLANET. Unreleased in the U.S., MASTERS was
designed by noted visual artist Moebius. A deliriously rare treat for
animation and sci-fi buffs. Production designer Moebius will appear for
discussion following the screening.
The Wednesday, August 23rd program continues at 9:00 PM with a double
feature tribute to British Horror Legend Michael Reeves. Although he
directed only four features before his tragic death from a drug overdose
at age 25, British director Michael Reeves left an indelible mark on
gothic horror with his brooding tales of madness and hysteria. First on
the double-bill is THE WITCHFINDER GENERAL (aka THE CONQUEROR WORM)
(1968, MGM/UA, 98 min) starring Vincent Price as real-life witch-hunter
Matthew Hopkins, dedicated to ridding England of suspected Satanists,
and instead falling prey to his own horrifying, repressive methods.
Co-starring Ian Ogilvy and Hilary Dwyer. There will be a discussion
between films with producer Philip Waddilove (WITCHFINDER GENERAL).
Next on the same bill is THE SORCERERS (1967, Allied Artists [Warner
Classics], 87 min) starring Boris Karloff as Dr. Marcus Monsarrat, an
elderly doctor who possesses a secret device that allows him to impose
his consciousness, BEING JOHN MALKOVICH-style, on other people and live
vicariously through them. Ian Ogilvy co-stars as the swinging teenager
taken over by Karloff's mind, in Reeves' disturbing psycho-thriller.

page 5 - Fantasy, Horror, & Sci-Fi
Friday, August 25 - 7:00 PM
The Friday, August 25th program begins at 7:00 PM with HELLRAISER (1987,
Swank, 94 min),
director/writer Clive Barker's astonishing fusion of supernatural horror
and otherworldly fantasy. Andrew Robinson and Clare Higgins star as an
unsuspecting British couple who come face to face with magical
puzzle-boxes, skeletal ex-lovers and the Cenobites, a sado-masochistic
race of pin-headed demons.  "A return to the cutting edge of horror …
inventively gruesome." - Phil Hardy.  Discussion following with director
Clive Barker.
The Friday, August 25th program continues at 9:30 PM with the U.S.
theatrical premiere of THE ARCANE ENCHANTER (1996, RAI Trade, 98 min).
Gorgeous, atmospheric Italian horror in the tradition of Mario Bava and
Riccardo Freda, from the acclaimed director of ZEDER, Pupi Avati. In
18th-century Bologna, a young novice, Giacomo, is banished for sexual
misconduct; he finds employment as apprentice to an infamous necromancer
known as the Arcane Enchanter. As master and pupil begin to practice
ancient, hermetic rituals and attempt to contact the dead, Giacomo
becomes aware of a terrifying evil waiting to engulf them.  Starring
Carlo Cecchi and Stefano Dionisi.
The Friday, August 25th program continues at 11:30 PM with CASTLE OF
BLOOD (LA DANZA MACABRA) (1964, Italy, 85 min). Alongside BLACK SUNDAY
and THE HORRIBLE DR. HICHCOCK this is Barbara Steele's shining hour and
director Antonio Margheriti's masterpiece, a gruesome, spine-tingling
and perversely beautiful hymn to love from beyond the grave. A visiting
American journalist (George Riviere) is challenged by Edgar Allan Poe
and friend Lord Blackwood to stay overnight in the latter's haunted
castle. What he finds there is unrequited love for tragic ghost
Elizabeth (Steele) and a host of undead murder victims thirsty for his
blood.
Saturday, August 26 - 5:00 PM
The Saturday, August 26th program begins at 5:00 PM with DARK CITY
(1998, New Line, 100 min).  Trapped in a city of never-ending night,
suspected serial killer Rufus Sewell and Jennifer Connelly try to evade
the omnipotent, space-shifting aliens who control their existence.
Director and co-writer Alex Proyas' breathtaking vision of paranoia run
amok combines elements of German Expressionism, 1940's film noir, and
21st-century cinema wizardry into a non-stop thrill-ride of epic
dimensions. This film demands to be seen on the big screen. Director
Alex Proyas will be traveling from his home in Australia to join us for
this screening!
        The Saturday, August 26th program continues at 7:30 PM with an
ultra-rare lesbian vampire double-header! First is CAGED VIRGINS
(REQUIEM POUR UN VAMPIRE) (1971, Harry Novak, 88 min).  One of the very
few Jean Rollin pictures that actually saw American release, CAGED
VIRGINS is a lyrically obsessive erotic poem of sex and death.
Bank-robbing waifs Marie-Pierre Castel and Mirielle Dargent flee through
the haunted French countryside at last finding refuge in the crumbling
castle of an undead count and his vampire minions. Stunningly beautiful
with a bewitching catalogue of images influenced by silent film,
surrealist painting, comic strips and a disturbingly provincial
Catholicism.
page 6 - Fantasy, Horror, & Sci-Fi
Next on the same bill is VAMPYRES - DAUGHTERS OF DRACULA (1974,
U.K./Spain, 84 min) directed by Josef Larraz. Arguably one of the most
perversely erotic, intoxicating horror films ever made, the film
features lesbian murder victims Marianne Morris and Anulka who return
from the dead as hitchhiking vampires, luring lonely motorists to their
doom as they pass the pair's creepy country estate.
Plus short, "Le Ciel de Sang" (The Sky of Blood) (1972, 3 min), a stark
B&W tale of an 18th century female vampire directed by the
Cinematheque's own Chris D., recalling equal parts Hammer and Rollin,
with a Buñuelian shock ending.
The Saturday, August 26th program continues at 11:00 PM with BERNIE
(1996, Canal +, 87 min). A hopelessly-insane man-child, Bernie, releases
himself from a mental hospital, determined to find the parents who
dumped him in a garbage chute as a baby, in French director/actor Albert
Dupontel's hilariously grotesque comedy - a kind of Frank
Hennenlotter-meets-Paul Bartel gore-and-laugh fest. After Bernie
discovers his father living in a homeless camp, he and Dad annihilate a
household of upper-crust bourgeoisie trying to "liberate" his mother.
Together, the three create a savage, tasteless parody of a normal loving
family. With Claude Perron and Roland Blanche.
Sunday, August 27, 2000
The Sunday August 27th program begins at 5:00 PM with THE INCREDIBLE
SHRINKING MAN (1957, Universal, 81 min) directed by Jack Arnold. Based
on his novel and screenplay, writer Richard Matheson's landmark sci-fi
story stars Grant Williams as a man who begins to shrink uncontrollably
after he's exposed to nuclear fallout. As he grows smaller and smaller,
everyday objects - and animals -- take on a terrifying dimension.  A
stunning re-imagining of the world we live in, from the author of I Am
Legend and countless film & television programs including HOUSE OF
USHER, THE RAVEN, DUEL, and "The Twilight Zone." Discussion following
with author Richard Matheson.
The Sunday August 27th program continues at 7:30 PM with SOMEWHERE IN
TIME (1980, Universal, 104 min) directed by Jeannot Szwarc. Christopher
Reeve stars as a forlorn playwright who falls in love with the painting
of a woman who died years before - then literally wills himself back in
time to meet her. Jane Seymour co-stars in this lovely, intoxicating
fantasy, one of the most ridiculously romantic films ever made - based
on screenwriter Richard Matheson's own novel, Bid Time Return.
Author/screenwriter Richard Matheson scheduled to introduce the
screening.

Friday, September 8, 2000
The Friday, September 8th program begins at 7:00 PM with THE 7TH VOYAGE
OF SINBAD (1958, Columbia, 87 min). Director Nathan Juran's marvelous
fantasy follows the adventures of Sinbad (Kerwin Mathews) as he battles
a phenomenal gallery of giant cyclops, two-headed birds, dragons and
sword-fighting skeletons, to save beautiful princess Kathryn Grant.
Featuring one of Bernard Herrmann's most memorable scores and astounding
stop-motion animation by the legendary Ray Harryhausen.   Discussion
following with director Nathan Juran.
        The Friday, September 8th program continues at 9:30 PM with
ATTACK OF
THE 50 FOOT
page 7 - Fantasy, Horror, & Sci-Fi
WOMAN (1958, Allied Artists [Warner Bros.], 66 min) directed by Nathan
Juran (aka Nathan Hertz.). In this absurdly surreal, over-the-top
pinnacle of 1950's sci-fi matinee thrillers, a rich alcoholic housewife
(played by drive-in icon Allison Hayes) encounters a giant alien in the
desert and then grows to mammoth proportions from his radioactive touch.
To complicate matters, her oily husband Harry (William Hudson) is
two-timing her with voluptuous barfly Yvette Vickers, and Hayes uses her
newfound size to even the score!  Much like fellow Allied Artists alumni
Roger Corman, director Juran makes every shot and every dollar count,
and keeps the action moving at all costs.

Saturday, September 9, 2000
The Saturday, September 9th program begins at 6:00 PM with FIRST MEN IN
THE MOON (1964, Columbia, 103 min) directed by Nathan Juran. In this
extremely entertaining adaptation of H.G. Wells' novel, turn-of the
century British inventor Lionel Jeffries enlists Edward Judd and fiancee
Martha Hyer in his scheme to reach the moon using anti-gravity paint.
Once the trio hits the lunar landscape, they're captured by a weird
subterranean insect race, the Selenites, and we're treated to some of
Ray Harryhausen's most enjoyable special effects.  An infectious blend
of Victorian sci-fi, sweet humor and high adventure.  Discussion
following with director Nathan Juran.
        The Saturday, September 9th program continues at 8:45 PM with a
Nathan Juran double feature.  First up is  THE BRAIN FROM PLANET AROUS
(1958, Ivy Films, 70 min) also directed by Nathan Juran (aka Nathan
Hertz.).
Atomic
scientist John Agar's body is usurped by an evil super-brain from space
and proceeds to aim for world domination with his death-ray vision!  The
new Agar also possesses an uncontrollable libido that fiancee Joyce
Meadows somehow fails to appreciate. Meanwhile, a good super-brain
tracks the evil one to Earth, hiding inside Meadows' German Shepherd
(!), in a plot to foil the insane monster. What are you waiting for?
       Next on the same bill is 20 MILLION MILES TO EARTH (1957,
Columbia, 82 min). An American spaceship returning from Venus
crash-lands off of Sicily with two passengers on board - pilot William
Hopper, and a miniature reptile, who soon grows to monstrous proportions
in Earth's atmosphere. Director Nathan Juran's first collaboration with
F/X wizard Ray Harryhausen features a surprisingly sympathetic monster,
and an astounding climactic battle at the Roman Coliseum.
    Actors John Agar and Robert Fuller will appear for discussion
between
the two films.
Sunday, September 10, 2000
The Sunday, September 10th program begins at 5:00 PM with JACK THE GIANT
KILLER (1962, MGM/UA, 94 min), Juran's most underrated fantasy film. The
film follows the adventures of a young farmer (Kerwin Mathews) who slays
a marauding giant - and incurs the wrath of a sorcerer (Torin Thatcher)
bent on controlling England. Juran skillfully blends SINBAD-style
adventure with a surprisingly-dark touch - including a truly terrifying
attack at sea by hordes of glowing witches, and a sweet-faced young
princess (Judi Meredith) who is transformed into her lusciously-wicked
mirror image by the sorcerer!
        Double features include both films for one admission price of $7
general. There is a 5-minute intermission between films. Running times
are provided to figure out the approximate start time of the second film
in the double bill.
Discussions between films in a double feature are generally about 20
minutes long. Tickets are $7 general admission.

Hi!

I'm starting up a Live Action Role-Play chapter in the vicinity of Antwerp, Belgium. We're playing Vampire: The Masquerade, so without Garou, Wraiths, Mages,... (Well, at least not as PC's ;-). Should anyone be interested, you can visit the website (in Dutch) at http://bite.to/Taxandria . Any other questions can be asked at my private mail adress.

See you soon?

Tim

There is a various color of characters in the channel tho it is still growing (only has up to 10-12 at the most).
Please fell free to stop by and watch and hopefully play.

Please excuse the email name. I made it years ago to access porn!
I'm going to Barrie, Ontario for a CPA course, and I'd like to find a V:tM or V:tLN game... please contact me.

I am also looking for some ideas on how to do the influense game, because if I can't find a game, I'll make one, and that is going to be a difficult part!
