   You all know this story. 

   It's the middle of the night.  The farmer's duaghter is in the outermost barn on the property making out with her boyfriend from the city.  They're both sweaty, down to their underwear, and the things that go bump in the night sneak through the barn door. 

   A few seconds of screaming later, the two kids leap out of the loft, half naked and white as a sheet, they scramble to their feet, running for the farm house faster than they knew they could run. 

   Five laughing monsters bound out of the loft after them, fangy mouths on protruding jaws in otherwise all too human face.  Their bodies are burly humans', but their fingers end in horible claws and they bound after the terified teenagers on kangaroo legs. 

   The city boy goes down, but the farmer's daughter, strong from a lifetime of solid work, pulls him to his feet and they run on, weaving between haystacks, about too pass a group of strangers with swords and guns. 

   That's part of the story you don't know. 

   "Take the ghasts." 

   The part where we bump back.


   *   *   *

   Mr. Gerald Montegue sits on the board of directors of the Crysalis Corperation.  Seemingly a law abiding megacorp, Crysalis is in fact the pawn of The Children of Chaos, a cult determined too prepare our war torn world for the coming of an elder god known as The Endless One.  Along with money and influence, they wield powerful sorcery and the Rite of Transfiguration--a powerful ritual which sacrifices the souls of their upper management and key agents for the power to become monstrous dohanoids. 

   Having aquired a New Earth Goverment contract to build an Archology here in Kansas, Montegue is able to move thousands of his people into position to do his dirty work. 

   All that stands in their way is a motorcycle collecting occult scholar... 



   ...a Nazadi sword-saint with a taste for old movies...




   ...a playful fox...



   ...and you.

Color me intrigued. I just stumbled upon the PC title Dark Corners of the Earth and am finding myself enthralled by the Cthulhu mythos. I would love to be involved. Are you dealing with character sheets? What would you need from me, if you're still looking that is?

Good morning and well met.  :)  I am indeed still looking for players! 

I'd be happy to help you with your character, either over a messenger, through Private Messages, or in the game's OOC.

Interested again. I'll be putting together a tager for this, a man with a taste for speed. Got some ideas going, posting a character here or the character archive (I imagine you have one already, if your last show of organisation is to trust muse) when ready.

  For those who want to play Parapsychics, I have house-ruled the starting parasychic package to make them able to keep up. 

  Likewise, I'm cutting spell costs in half. 

  (We already have a White lined up, though.)

What's the difference between Regeneration 1/1 die and Regeneration 1/3? As near as I can make out, 1/3 regenerates more vitality in Tager form.

I would be interested, Would a Intelligence agent be acceptable. I was thinking that i grew up the town that their looking to build the archology and  OIS  gets a hold of me and turns me into a undercover agent watching the town and watching and reporting anything of note to the OIS.

M.R, we've already got that roll. 

i think the big thing we're missing is a field sorceress.  Let's see if I can come up with a list.... 

*  *  *

C.H., the first number for Regeneration indicates that--in human form--you regenerate on HP/Hour.  The second number is how much you regenerate per round in Ta'ge form.  3 means a flat rate of 3 HP/Round.  1d means a 1d10 per round.

I wish I could find somewhere in the book that is actually spelled out. >_< Not that I don't believe you, I just wish that the book said that in any of the index entries where they talk about regeneration or even the page on tager rules.

So with character creation points and points gained from getting drawbacks is specializations in skills worth 1 point.

You can only do it once at the start, but to Focus in two skills costs 1 Character Point. 

I wish I could find somewhere in the book that is actually spelled out. >_< Not that I don't believe you, I just wish that the book said that in any of the index entries where they talk about regeneration or even the page on tager rules.

*Chuckles*  i wish they'd do a better job of numbering their pages.  i think what your looking for is core book page 172.  (But I had to go to 177 to figure out what page number that is.) 

C.H., knowing your normal tastes, may I recomendn checking out the Nightmare, the Vampire, and the Efreet?

Yeah, I already looked at those. ;) You know me too well. I decided on Nightmare.

Say, how does having 1d10 regeneration work with being injured enough that your regeneration is halved or quartered? Do you roll 1d5, or do you roll and half the result?

That one I want to check on, but I suspect it means you regenerate every other round.  ^_^;;

That'd suck. Although better than the static regenerators, who have to round down and get their regeneration rate cranked down to 0. :/
