Travel to Warpcon

Hi there folks!

Trinity Gamers has hired a coach for our trip to Warpcon.  There are a
limited number of spaces available on the bus for those who want it.  We
will be departing from Pearse Street on Friday 27th January and returning
the evening of Sunday 29th.  A bus full to bursting with gamers, all excited
about the same thing you are and no innocent bystanders to call the guards
when you talk about the Cthulhu game: It'll be deadly...

Anyone interested, contact me at this address or
trinitygamers@... and
let me know.  We'll be offering it at cost price (€30) on a first come first
served basis.  I may also be able to arrange a package that would include
con entry and hostel accomodation, though the last one is not something I
can promise right now: I'd have to check with the hostel if there are spaces
left.

Is mise, le meas
Oisín Creaner,
El Presidenté, Trinity Gamers

Need help on attitutes

Hello,

I'm running a game in the US, and looking for some input on a
situation with some NPCs for a Werewolf: the Apocalypse game. 

The setting is the western part of Co. Galway. Some 20 years ago, a
young woman is brutally murdered and her sister disappears.  Seven
years later, the mother of the women, unable to put it behind her,
walks into the countryside and disappears.  The neighbors assume she
went mad and maybe even committed suicide.  

Thirteen years later, she reappears, looking the same as when she left.

[Behind the scenes: All involved are Kinfolk with varying degrees of
knowledge about the werewolves. The family has a bean sidhe, and the
whole family knows it.  Siobhan's husband lost his temper and ripped
Shan apart.  Siobhan ran to the bean sidhe and was told that she must
leave the country; she did so without so much as a goodbye.  Later,
Colleen (the mother) asks the faerie to take away her pain, and is
turned into a tree.  The glamour has now ended.]

My question: what happens now?  I imagine this will cause a
sensational scandal, but I don't want to make life untenable for the
NPCs.  What are the likely reactions?

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I would appreciate any
input you could give me.

Re: Need help on attitutes

Hello,

Interesting question and story. As we're talking about attitudes, I
don't think you'll get any right answer but here are a few suggestions.
With rural Ireland your often talking about parishes. Even today
villages tend to revolve around the local church & graveyard, national
school, shop, pub and GAA clubhouse.
The parish priest is still an important figure but mass is attendance
is getting older. Generally thought people born in the 60's and 70's
are still attending.
People are in no way overtly superstitious. However they will respect
such things as sacred wells, fairy trees and dun's.
If a woman were to reappear in such a fashion, people will tend to be
supportive. And nosy. Old women talk.
However how much of a scandal it would cause would depend heavily on
how protective her family are. If the family is popular and tight net
it won't become an issue. People in the same area also tend to have
plenty extended family who can close ranks. Privacy is still respected.

Those are just some generalities. Ones I've experienced firsthand
mainly. I'm from the same part of the world.

Re: Re: Need help on attitutes

Largely agree with Padraic - but there is the whole generational thing,
too.  Yes, the "younger" generations - by which I mean early 30s and younger
-  (in rural and city parts) will have heard the stories and traditions of
faery folk, holy wells, bean sidhe, and the like.  But they've also got
their PS2, MP3 players, internetz - and souped up boy racer cars.  You're
talking big contrast between the generations, if you want to introduce that
kind of conflict.  Not to mention the whole new-agey pagan thing Galway has
going on :-P

Someone from the younger generation could well be calling the tabloids,
telling their college Wicca circle about what they've heard, or blogging
about it on MySpace...

Re: Need help on attitutes

Thanks for the quick responses.

So, assuming that is enough actual Fae activity that superstition
would be more prevalent than IRL, what I'm looking at is the family
and friends keeping any details to themselves, so while tongues wag
and speculation is rampant (did she go mad?  Did she have a lover in
Wexford?  She's well-preserved, isn't she? Shockin', shockin'), there
will be little buzz to outsiders -- and perhaps not to most of the
younger crowd, either. After all, the elders would probably keep such
scandalous notions to themselves, and the kids wouldn't care about the
doings of the oldsters. If it does get out to interested parties --
pagans, UFO hunters or whatever -- it could well become a problem.  I
would wonder what the priest would have to say about it -- I guess
that would depend on how much he believes in faeries and such.  I
don't think Colleen would tell exactly what happened or mention the
fae, but if the man is local and knowledgable in such things he could
probably guess.   Are priests local, or does the church move them far
from their old home?

BTW, the involved PC (Gavin, a werewolf) is the only child of Siobhan,
the woman who fled. The killer werewolf was Gavin's father. Siobhan
died 20 years later, and the boy followed some old letters back to his
mother's home.

Thanks again,

FBM

I think Diocesan priests get moved around at the whim (or necessity)
of the local Bishop.  So a priest would likely be from *somewhere* in
Galway/the west.  But priests can also be "loaned" to other dioceses,
I think, so he could theoretically be from anywhere.

Re: Re: Need help on attitutes

As a general rule, priests in a parish are not local men, but rather from
somewhere else (usually within the Diocese.)  They do, however, become very
much a part of the local community after a fairly short while, and their
terms in a parish are often quite long.

My local Parish Priest recently arrived, but the older man he was replacing
as Parish Priest stayed on as a Curate, and has been with us here for about
ten years.  Most parishes would still have more than one priest, even if
most of them are approaching (or past) retirement age.  As part of settling
in a new arrival will usually try to learn the histories and the
personalities of the parish.  It helps them integrate and become a part of
the community

This is even more prevalent in country parishes, especially among the older
people who would even still consider the priest(s) of the parish a focal
point of the community, even as younger people look further afield.

Hope that's some more useful info,
Oisín
