As far as things go, I'd prefer going with the points buy, but after that freeform play. For points, in the last chronicle I ran it was standard plus the following:

Provide a pic of your character, 1 bonus freebie pt
Create a detailed location within the city, 1 bonus freebie pt, may do this twice
Create a detailed, possibly supernatural (but leave it ambiguous) event in the city's past, 1 bonus freebie pt, may do this twice.

Allows people to earn up to five freebie points while at the same time adding to the chronicle and providing ideas for the storyline.

As for my character, I'm looking at running a Ventrue.

That's great!
Should be rather simple.
How about 5 extra freebie added to those accepted as a primogen. Gives those first  as leaders more then someone who joins later.

Sounds good to me. Not looking to run a primogen though (I like the up-and-comer character.

That idea sounds good.
I don't often play positions of power/authority but am happy to do so if wanted or needed.

Okay I will get copies of the character sheets out soon.
Then let you know the start scene once everyone has finished char sheets and accepted.

Does anyone own Cat Scratch yet?  Or could I make a PC that owns the place?

No one owns it. I'd planned the three main clubs being owned by a primogen

I had the idea of a Setite who owns the strip club and maybe lets other vampires work or feed there for favors.  If that won't work, though, no worries.

I have the books on pdf and also know where you can download them.

Doubtless you're refering to a site such as drivethrurpg where one can legally purchase and download gaming pdfs. After all, anything otherwise would be a breach of rule 5 - This server is governed by the laws of the United States. You will not link to or provide warez, illegal pdfs or mp3s, and so on. Threats will be dealt with accordingly.

And I know no one is planning to do that ... right?

I have a delightful Malkavian lady who would have immense pleasure in owning a BDSM club and watching others delight in that world.

I meant to ask about player owned businesses as well. As a Ventrue, my character would likely have several business interests (all bought with points, of course).

Coolness, I should have my character up by tomorrow night.  Gotta dig my books out and all.

As far as his business interests, I'm looking at him owning a "talent" agency that is mainly a front for his adult film studio and higher end escort service, with appropriate influences to keep the police either turning a blind eye or even partaking of the wares ( it's WoD, after all).  Maybe one or two more, depending on how I work things out.

I'll be able to have a look and do the sheet later today to get up. I'm at uni at the moment and there are too many distractions, plus I really ought to do work.

Oh, the pdf I was talking about with character creation is just something I typed out, with the basic outline for creating a character.  I don't think it violates any laws or rules, since there's no real game information there (it lists how many points you get to put where, but does not provide any details or the like).

But, to be safe, I won't share it.  I'd hate to get booted for a small thing like that.
