A new school year is just around the corner. Can you believe it? We're senior's this year! I can't believe it. These next few years will determine our lives forever. I've dreamed about wearing this uniform forever. I wonder what opening ceremony will be like! I wonder which desk I'll sit at. I wonder if they'll sell sweet bread in the cafeteria still! I'm so excited for the most simple of things. Yes I know, I'm being silly. It's silly, isn't it? To want to care about what bento box color I should buy, or who I might get a confession from on the rooftop??? But really, there's something in me that tells me I need to enjoy this. This simple, easy going, slice of life.
Why? I'm not sure. To be honest I can't place my finger on it. It's like this egging notion that squeezes on my heart. A feeling I get sometimes to take every moment as a gift. Is that strange? To feel like I might not have a tomorrow? I know, I know, I'm rambling nostalgic. But it is! Nostalgic, that is. Hmm? Oh you know, everything. You, the air, that music. You hear it, don't you? Maybe it's just me. I swear someone keeps playing it in the music room. Playing it and I remember it. It makes me feel...sad.
No, I'm not normally the depressive sort. I know. I'm fine! Really! Pinky-swear I'm not hiding anything. Maybe I've gotten ahead of myself with the coming year. Seniors! Surely something beautiful will happen. Surely we'll have a chance to live our rose colored life! Surely this year will be inspirational, and my Senpai will help me to get ahead! I'll go to a good school, meet a perfect love, get a job I adore and grow up to have a family. You know, a perfect life. Something tells me if I want it bad enough, that's possible. A perfect...life. Oh! Goodness! Where are these tears coming from, really!? I don't understand why I'm crying. Just that...I'm terrified. Terrified I can have none of these dreams at all. How strange...

The game begins in our fair City of Abshire. Citizens from all walks of life, race, and class join the hustle and bustle of a city that refuses to quiet. Abshire itself a presence that lingers on every shoulder, and an influence in every decision. Citizens go about their daily lives, from running the streets to calling the shots at the corporate office, each facing their own darkness in the struggle towards personal dreams and desires.
CITY OF ABSHIRE IS NOW OPEN FOR PLAY!

SO! It's time for some announcements! Guess what? Story Sanctum is going into it's THIRD iteration. We have some great games coming out! Both are a custom version of "Chronicles of Darkness" Mortal. And that's about all I'm going to tell you! The rest you should go check out on the Wiki's! There is the game "CoD: Aegis Verdant" and "CoD: City of Abshire". Announcements with details on both those venues will be forthcoming, so look for those soon. So I bet you are wondering when we start accepting sheets? WELL! Good news, we have a system in place! October 15th we are going to start accepting submissions! At our chat that means something different than other chats. We open a thread where you post to be added to a sanction queue. After that, we add you to the queue and open a thread for your PC's name in the correct venue you are submitting to(you can play at both! Even if you are an Assistant in one of them!). Once you have an area set up for your PC you copy and paste the Character sheet into the correct place. This allows you to work on it at your leisure and save frequently! When it's finalized with all that we've asked you to do BEFORE you can be looked at for sanction, you will let us know as per the ST's instruction. We'll let you know when you are sanctioned! Details on this will be made known in the venue itself, so don't worry. It will be made clear shortly!
So then you're probably wondering when each game starts, but that's different per venue. As it stands right now it's looking like November 1st for Scene/game opening and XP starting. If you are allowed to play before opening scenes, the venue will make that clear. Please let me state again, these are two SEPARATE venues this time, not co-venues. You can play in both! So you will be looking at the potential of making 2 PC's this time around. That is why we want to give sufficient time to get characters in before things start. Both games will have their forums available to start planning concepts and communicating. You'll also start to see the ST's in the chat again more often so you can ask questions there or in FPM. We're stoked and ready for action. We can't wait for new games and fun to begin!

And so tonight marks the last scene for "Young Blood" and Tuesday was the conclusion of "Leviathan's Wake". Needless to say the end is here. A big thank you to all of our players and their contributions over the last year. Every ending marks a new beginning and the same can be said of SS. Before any new game info goes up, however, we're going to make sure that any site renovations are done. A reminder to save everything you want from the forums and wiki before they are gone! If you are looking at an estimation of when these new games are coming out, we're not entirely sure at the moment. More on that will come as we see how much work renovating will be. I do know the new games are being worked on in the background, so I can say that much! Stay tuned!
