In the World of Darkness, everyone's struggle is personal. So every player character here gets plenty of one-on-one Storyteller attention. However, the personal nature of one's struggle does not mean that they are alone. Sometimes they meet others who are on their own path, and when they do, it's always interesting.
(Three more posts detailing how this works if you're interested)
The stories one would read in most of the New World of Darkness books are not about an entire party (as represented by Coterie, Pack, Cabal, etc), but an individual's trials, tribuulations, and struggles. It is about them, not the group they are in. To this end, everyone in this group is a player character *and* a Storyteller. Someone STs their player character(s) and vice versa.
We might have many characters and each of us is on our own path with our own interests, we share the same universe, and we're bound to happen upon each other just as we do in real life. Joe and Jane might have an interest in the same obscure medical records that are rumored to be stored in this old warehouse. They might have different reasons for wanting them, but they both do. And so, they happen upon each other in their quest.
Do they fight over the documents or cooperate? It's up to them, and a third ST will have to be present for it. In either case, though, they will have their cooperation or competition, and they will both -- hopefully anyway -- keep going from where they left off. Maybe they'll meet again, but maybe they won't. Who knows.
This is why you should join: to help determine that.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What kind of character submissions are you accepting?
A: We will run any kind of character you can get an ST for, except fan splats.
Q: Who is STing, and what will they ST?
A: Currently, there are two STs. What's available is Vampire, Mage, Werewolf, Promethean, and Changeling. Anything else is up for grabs if you compel one of us.
Q: How do you determine the stories that get incorporated into the Crossroads metaplot?
A: If the current controller of the group (myself, for now) finds them appropriate for the setting. Admittedly, this is a completely subjective call, so the main rule is: make your story and your characters compelling.
Q: Will you accept V20 or other oWoD characters?
Q: Where is this located? Which city, specifically?
A: Wherever you want your character to be. There is no single location this takes place in. This enables you to have a character that's on-the-go, as some people have already made.
Q: Then how will these characters ever meet?
A: Good faith metagaming. If you want your character to meet someone else's character, they can go to the other one's city. People move. People travel. It wouldn't be called Crossroads if you didn't wander, meet, and keep going anyway, would it?
