We're currently in the IRC in our own little chat room if you all want to talk about characters and all that.

GCA 3 uses third edition, GCA 4 uses fourth. I have both. I am a very sad Gurps GM...

You can also load the files for Gurps third into GCA 4 and it works just fine for third ed of course...


Let me see if I have time for this. *Smiles* I may be overcommitting myself.

Ok, I have the character sheets up but I haven't gotten the coded copy up yet.  I just wanted to make sure they work before going any further.  Check the bottom of the first post on the first page guys and gals.  Thanks!

You can always copy the image, write on it with a paint program, then send it back to us.

You really don't want to see how bad I handle the Paint program lol.  Joking aside, that is a good idea I'll admit.  :D

The OOC and IC threads are up guys and gals.  There's no rush, but just wanted to get those going before I passed out for the night.  :D  I'll better organize our information threads and stuff in the OOC tomorrow, promise.

Sadly, I'm a little overburdened with games as it is, but I'm going to try and keep an eye on this game.

If my load lightens up some time in the future, would it be possible for me to hop in?

Also, one question/slight CoC complaint: in the computer game, it looks like nothing corruption-y happens to your character unless you do it - you're almost never forced to drink succubus milk and such, for instance, it's all done by choice, and there's usually no benefit aside from the corruption (which is a benefit to the player, but to the character, it's generally not so much).  Is there going to be something in here that makes corruption either a bit less optional or more beneficial from the character's perspective?

Well, the way I'm planning to work this, the 'transform options' that come with using the items, would actually entail both advantages, and drawbacks, as well as the usual infusion of corruption. Plus, depending where you are in the 'dark world' you'll slowly pick up corruption from the environment itself. I'm entertaining the notion that corruption might (very) slowly burn off while in the 'light world' side, though any transform effects would stay.

I couldn't enter chat to discuss characters, but I'll probably go with a male bookworm of some kind. What are the rules of alchemy?

Hmm. That's interesting. I've been in most of the day..

Alchemy is a skill, but it is not in the main book. You'll need the Magic sourcebook.. which I do have. *chuckles*

I have a lot of stuff going on already, but I failed my Will roll to avoid coming in here and expressing interest. CoC and GURPS... just too hard to resist!

Um... are there still any openings left?

Well, hello there, Luna! And yes, currently we have three players, four counting you.

We've heard concepts for a healer, a rogue, and a warrior, I believe. Also, I take it you are familiar with the system? if so, then great! One more player that actually knows what they are doing. *grins*

Welcome abaord Luna.  ;D

And SneakyGuy, I'm not sure how that might work but if you want to send an experimental Character Sheet, we'll go from there and see how things go.  There are some tech references in the core book that Dorian sent me but from what I could tell they were more centered around armored suits, some flying stuff, things like that.  I don't want this to turn into a sci fi game so if you can stick to simpler tech like repeating crossbows or something similar we should be good.  Otherwise surprise me and you could quite possibly get lucky.  :D

I'll keep my tech stuff along the line of locks (I'll also take lockpicking), repeating crossbows, clocks and fucking machines :P Where are the skills for ranged weapons, by the way?

Heh. I'm going to make my character start off with little or no sexual experience. Hopefully, I can go through the game without being turned into a sex crazed beast.  ::)

I'll try and have my character up my tomorrow.

Lol no problem Tydorei, and becoming a sex crazed beast is half the fun of CoC lol.  Sneaky Guy, I don't know for sure where the range stuff is, sorry dude.  But otherwise what you got there sounds alright to me.  ;D
