I played waaaay too much Arkham Asylum and Arkham City over the last few weeks, then sat down to write some FATE Core stealth-action rules/ideas.  Comment here or on the doc itself...as you can see there's definitely some areas where brainstorming/expansion is welcome.

Hey, excellent! Reads much better (to me, at least). I really like this ruleset.

Humm I'm just now seeing this. I guess I glanced over it when it was posted. I'm not really certain what it has to do with CtL, but I'm not so certain it warrants anger. Am I missing something?

Read to the end.
 
My experience of code-switching between White and Black cultures, tokenism, and the burden (and obligation) that comes with it.

Here are some facts about the 1920 Republican Convention I just learned while working on a Vampire game. Ready?

* The last GOP delegate who voted for Lincoln at the convention in 1864 attended for the last time.  He wasn't pledged to any candidate. (The overwhelming majority of delegates weren't pledged to anyone, one reason the early part of the convention was so chaotic and the final part was such a backroom compromise.)

* H.L. Mencken attended the entire thing. He approved of chairman Henry Cabot Lodge's supercilious attitude towards the mob of delegates.

* Prohibition meant that the beer you could buy across the street had increased in price from five cents to twenty five cents since 1916.

* Women picketed the convention.  The right of women to vote had achieved 35 of 36 states necessary for ratification - two undecided states were GOP-controlled and they sought to embarrass/pressure the party at the convention.

* The animal symbol of the GOP in 1920 was the tiger, based on a nationally famous political cartoon depicting Republican reformers as a tiger taking on Tammany Hall democratic corruption.

* An economics professor passed out pamphlets claiming that candidate Warren Harding's great-grandmother Elizabeth was "a Negress".  Nice to know that kooks have always been overrepresented among economists...or vice versa?

* 83 of the 982 delegates to the Republican National Convention in 1920 were black.  (For comparison, around 60 of the 2,286 delegates to the 2012 Republican National Convention were black.)

* The electric spotlights used to illuminate chairman Lodge were so numerous and powerful that whenever they came on the blinded crowd screamed "TURN THEM OFF!!!"

The British Pathe' has uploaded a huge amount of their historical film footage to youtube, over 20,000 videos. If you love 20th century history like I do, you will love this. (There's some late 19th century stuff too.)

Someone said "let's have Enya for our soundtrack in this fantasy game" so I said okay, and dropped this.

I originally wrote this for a community I'm in, it got some good responses so I thought I'd share it here. It's about the 1920 Republican National Convention:

* The last GOP delegate who voted for Lincoln at the convention in 1864 attended for the last time.  He wasn't pledged to any candidate. (The overwhelming majority of delegates weren't pledged to anyone, one reason the early part of the convention was so chaotic and the final part was such a backroom compromise.)

* H.L. Mencken attended the entire thing. He approved of chairman Henry Cabot Lodge's supercilious attitude towards the mob of delegates.

* Prohibition meant that the beer you could buy across the street had increased in price from five cents to twenty five cents since 1916.

If you're looking for a free ebook with some insight into what black Americans thought were important current events from 1919-1921, check this out. (More in the comments - hopefully I can get this to post.)

The Negro Year Book was a series created by the Tuskeegee Institute. Booker T. Washington hired Monroe Work, top black sociologist, to create these and other research works for the Institute.  Work assembled the Year Books from submissions from black Americans, Africans and his own work.  This particular one, from January 1922, includes a very thorough set of important events for black Americans from 1919-1921 that Work himself put together.  They're in the public domain now and most are available on Google Books. You might not see many of these events in white-centric history books!

Here's the class!  I'm definitely going to prepare differently next time, there were some issues in how I presented dependent/independent probabilities....could be clearer...WILL be clearer! But Dylan is awesome and all went well.
