Welcome to the world of Darkness!
The Hunt is a Hunter: The Vigil game demo put out by white wolf Publishing. It's intended to give new Players and Story Tellers a taste of the Hunter template, and includes all of the rules, notes, and variations needed to play the game. The module is free, and can be downloaded at RPG Drive Thru.
Your Story Tellers are Exewon and myself. We're both new to the World of Darkness system, and wanted to learn how to run a game. Although we're both familiar with the rules and character creation, this will be as much of a learning experience for us as it will be for the players, so through the game we'll accept and encourage constructive criticism and advice.
The Purpose of this game is for new players to get a handle on the rules for World of Darkness. We welcome experienced players as well--in fact, your presence in the game is appreciated! If you have little or no experience in World of Darkness, please apply; we'll be describing the rules as we go. If you have lots of experience, please apply; we'll be encouraging you to help the rest of us learn!
This game will be held in ArcaneDesperado's School of Darkness forum, where folks can gather to ask questions about the WoD system. So expect this game to be a concrete example of play.
The Characters of the module, being a demo, are pre-generated and ready to go. We'll be accepting applications mostly based on interest, willingness to learn/teach, and role-playing ability. World of Darkness is an RP heavy system with simple mechanics; it's much more about the story than it is about rolling dice, so you'll be encouraged to get deeply involved with your character! They are:
Raimundo Guttierez: A gang member who never got out, and rose to lead his own crew.
Karl Rivers: A one time investigative reporter for the Philadelphia Inquirer who was fired for promoting his wild conspiracy theories.
Sgt. Andrea Taggart: Another in a long family line of cops, she rose the ranks with Gabreski, and is now his right hand woman.
Det. Jack Dean: A detective with a rough upbringing who's out to fight the Good Fight, jaded though he's become.
We've accepted one player, and are looking for four more. In your application (which can be put into this thread--please keep it to your first post so it's easy for us to find), let us know your experience with World of Darkness (and with Hunter in particular), your experience with Game Mastering (or Story Telling in WoD in particular) if any, and which character you'd like to play. But most importantly, tell us why you're interested in playing with a couple of newbies. Do you want to learn alongside us? Do you want to teach as you can? Or are you just looking for a good story?
Any players who apply but are not accepted are more than welcome to join us as readers.

Finally, no prior knowledge is required to play in this game. The demos are there specifically to give new players a taste of WoD without them having to go out and buy a bunch of material first. You won't even need this module if you want to play: all of the relevant game material will be made available to you. If you want to pick up the module, please do, but don't read the story if you're intending to play: you'll ruin the surprise for yourself!
If you have any questions, please let us know. We want this to be as informative and enjoyable for everyone as we can. Thanks for your interest, and post away!
Lt. Vince Gabreski, Sgt. Andrea Taggart, and Dets. Jack Dean and Darnell Waters belong to the Special Cases Unit, created by the Mayor's Office to help stem the growth of gangs in the city of Philadelphia. Recently, they were contacted byAgent Carver of Taskforce: VALKYRIE, and asked to follow up on some strange activity at a downtown warehouse. In their first supernatural encounter, they came up across a group of Ghouls--and Waters didn't make it back.
