Storytelling Note about Metaplot
Each month, by the first of the month there will be a 2-5 word "theme" for that month. A story element of sorts that will have to do with the overarching plot of the game. Initially the theme elements will be completely staff determined but after a few months of PC action and involvement with stories then the story elements for the game theme will be influenced by what the players are doing.
Monthly Themes by Date

Beginning in April of 2015, we have made a change to our usual Metaplot Theme Bonus that is typically given out for scenes associated with the monthly metaplot theme. Instead of giving a bonus for scenes that highlight a particular metaplot theme, we are going to give a bonus to STs and +event Organizers.
What this means for an ST is, you will receive a .5 XP bonus (that is 2.5 "beats") for either STing a PRP (for 1 or more other PCs - this does not have to be an open event, it can be a specific story) or for organizing/overseeing a +event. This bonus will be limited to 1 per PC (so if you are a player who has 2 PCs you can gain the bonus on each of your characters) for the month.
If you are a Mage player, you can have the option of taking this bonus in the form of Arcane XP, rather than as regular XP - and it will count towards what is needed to raise Gnosis.
After running a PRP or a +event, please submit a +request titled ST bonus. This should be done separately from +requests to gain beats for participants in a story.
