I think you mean as awesome as it sounds. Link? I googled it and came up with nothing.

EDIT: Okay, that sounds good for a baseline to aim for. I think I'm going to recycle the character I made for my local Geist MET venue that never got off the ground, a Forgotten Reaper from a wealthy family, targeting and killing other rich people who use their wealth/power to abuse those of lesser station.

 I always have a hard time figuring out what to buy with my XP. It's something I always spend a lot of time figuring out.

well, 250 XP is a lot of spend, but the scaling pricing means it goes away really fast when you start spending it. :D

I just never believed the charts they have in the book. 120xp is nowhere near a "Lord of all you survey". Especially considering the simple Swat Team member out of the back of the blue book, when broken down to his base points, is a 230xp character!

Yeah, those sample characters can be kinda awful, though point costs can change dramatically depending on what you buy with starting dots.

Not that I'll complain if you increase the 'effective XP'... :D

BTW, since I didn't see it before, CammieMind's Eye Society member and proud. ;D

I have the character sheet and most of the background, but probably no picture.



Name: Maxwell Stavrikos
Apparent Age: 29
Description: Short, almost barrel-shaped with a wrestler's build. Olive skin, black hair and eyes. Always dresses in tailored suits with tasteful jewelry.
General Personality: Smooth and charming in social situations, bound to a strong sense of 'noblesse oblige' with regards to those in unfortunate economic circumstances. Utterly merciless to enemies or opponents in a fight.
Notable Quirks or Features Noticed: His skin is always hot to the touch, as if he has a fever, though he displays a normal body temperature to thermometers/heat sensors.
Attitudes about the Council: The best of a bunch of bad options. The various things that go bump in the night (particularly vampires) have a nasty habit of leaving ghosts in their wake, meaning more work for the city's Sin-Eaters. At least this is a way to minimize the damage and keep a tab on the 'others'.
If you are a leader or an elected official: Elected official

 True, I could probably put 2 dots in all Axioms and use most of my XP that way.

 In case anyone is familiar with Genius, Tes is an Artificer. :D

 Well, Tes will have a fair bit of Inspiration. But most of her Mania will be going into Wonders, yes.

 I mean.. there's two wonders she's gotta have active almost all the time...

Mania is the Genius's energy, the equivalent to Vitae/Mana/Plasm/Werewolf Energy. They can use it to heal and a few other things, but its primary use is fueling Wonders.

Wonders are Mad SCIENCE! inventions. Geniuses don't spend their Mania on-the-spot like a Vampire would spend blood to power their disciplines, they build inventions (determined by their Axioms (Disciplines equvialents)) then invest their Mania to power said devices. As long as Mania is invested in a Wonder, the Wonder operates, but the Genius's maximum Mania pool is reduced by the amount said Wonder needs for fuel.

 Glyph said it better than I could. A Genius can use Mania to pwer mundane tech or power their machines. Either way, they regain mania very slowly as far as I understand. One point a day, plus a point under specific conditions.

Of course, those 'specific conditions' can include having someone unwillingly restrained while you rant at them... ;D

You'll probably want one of the Interactive ones.

Make sure you save it on your computer first, or print it out, since it doesn't usually save right if you edit it straight from the site and try to save it.

 I could also grab the merit that let's me drain someone's energy and transfer it to mania :P

 Besides, Tes enjoys being the restrained much more....

Alright, a quick note regarding the integration of the Genius template. I downloaded the book and have been reading all morning. Now this game takes place in the Greater Chicago area, which comprises about 9.5 million people. A genius happens every 1/5,000 people. With 60% never becoming aware of what they are, and only 35% of that remaining number belonging to the PC Peerage. This still results in a total number of 266 Geniuses in the Chicago area, which when compared to the other venues is INSANE. But, I don't want to push it down to one Genius and make it so far from cannon that its nonsensical. So would you be willing to work with the idea of having Tes represent a Collaboration of Genius's that are about 9 strong (her making member 10) who have claimed Chicago as their testing ground and hence have managed to push out other Geniuses? That way we can appropriately represent the character type without overloading the game with mad scientists.

 That's fine with me. I actually think Tes's 'dark secret' would be rather well known, it isn't that big a thing.
