  I've had trouble sorting through all the back posts.  Is there any way I can do Spring Heel as a Champion?

I'd like for there to be at least four Investigators/White Hats before accepting a third Champion.  Right now, we have two players who are confirmed to be playing as Investigators/White Hats.  Right now, I'm talking to a potential third Investigator via PM.  If Callie Del Noire plays an Investigator/White Hat as well (note sure if he's still interested), then you may play a Champion.

If we get enough people, I'm going to consider running two modules at the same time, which I'll customize so that they intertwine somehow.

I am nearly done with my sheet. I have been fighting with backstory a few days, and should have it posted tomorrow.

Still here, but very limited internet access for 1-3 more days.

Above Jack Wellington’s desk is a custom plaque with a quote from the Anglican book of common prayer, 1870s. 

From goulies and ghosties and long legged beasties and things that go bump in the night, dear lord deliver us. 

His desk is an antiquate hardwood piece from the time of Victoria.  The computer is year old alien ware.  Both top of the line antiques.   

Jack is a heavy smoker, but favors expensive pipe tobacco and Native American cigarettes.  If his partners let him, he will smoke the pipe inside. 

Despite his old world flare, he appreciates American muscle in his automobiles and drives a well maintained late 80s Mustang and enjoys a friendly flirtation with his mechanic Carli Jade. 

Professionally, Jack carries a sword cane and an appropriate sidearm with a concealed carry permit.  He does keep a clip of silver bullets handy, and another of hollow points. 

Jack has a middle class home in a gentrified district of downtown.  Last year, he adopted a 16 year old runaway prostitute named Kendra.   He has given a key to his fellow investigators, with a standing invitation to mooch within proper mooching etiquette, or seek shelter behind the iron bars and blend of Anglican and hexagramic wards.

Hey Marmalade, good to see ya.  Got any character ideas?

Offline Orange Marmalade

Hey kc! I do indeed! Looking at a half-demon that's a bit brawny and bookish but socially awkward. Getting him all finalized now :)

So, I was able to make Jack pretty easily as a champion.  I hope I can scale him back to detective should that prove to be necessary. 

I'm hoping this is still on, just slowed down for the holidays.

What's our status, GM? :)

Just waiting for everyone to finish up their characters sheets, then post them in the character sheet thread.

Offline Orange Marmalade

Oh! Well! People should finish then :D I sent you an update I think, is everything up to snuff?

Just added a small bit about Croixville into the original post:

Quote
Croixville is a fictional town of unrealistic size and geography and contains many elements of a large city, so... pretty much like any other fictional small town from a TV Show.  Founded in the late 19th century, this unincorporated town has a population of approximately 150,000, several high schools including Croixville High, a College Campus (Penemue College), a Wolfram & Hart branch office building, and an elected sheriff.  It is located within the fictional Chartrain County and is within driving distance of Chartrain City, a major metropolitan area.

Feel free to add any additional details you can come up with about this town in your character's back story.

Whelp, our slayer has withdrawn from the game.  No problem.  We can still proceed as planned.  ^_^

Hmm... maybe I should rename the game to "Croixville, Chartrain County" or something.  >_>

Really a shame we can't get a slayer.

 I know it's taken me longer than I should have, but with RL the way it's been the last few weeks what with the holidays it's been a bit rough to create something, but here is a bare bones for you guys to look at. Btw I added a Quality on the character sheet that can be taken by the other players if they so wish. DN and I discussed it and it's a perfectly balanced package to take. It's called the Marital Artist package.  It provides +1 Dex and +1 Con, +2 to Getting Medieval and +1 to Kung Fu with a level 1 honorable drawback which makes it a 4 point Quality.  It's different from the demon hunter package in that it's more skill focus oriented and it applies specific stat bumps rather than a random number of three and the point costs equal out to the same expenditure.

 Now without further ado my character for everyone to look over.

Martial Artist -4

Drawbacks

Minority(japanese) +1
Addiction(smoking) +1
Psyichic Visions(dehbilating) +3

Bookmarking.....Will you be allowing qualities from GoA?

Offline DeathnoteTopic starter

I'm not entirely sure what that is... but if it fits the setting, I'll be willing to take a look at it.

For now, just pick out whatever qualities you plan on using and run them by me first.

*Nods* It's Ghosts of Albion, another unisystem game. It's based on a book series that was written by the chick who played Tara.

I'm going to have to track down a copy myself, but just from googling it, it looks like there's been nothing but positive responses to that book and it sounds like it's perfectly compatible with the Angel and Buffy books.

Go ahead and use it for now.  Just be sure to let me know what each Quality does.

Noted. In my opinion, it's my favorite unisystem book. It adds a couple different aspects to the Buffyverse that I always felt it was lacking (Fae, Ghosts, and more in depth sorcery.) I bought the PDF, and I can tell you if was probably the best gaming book purchase I've made in the past 5 years. We use it constantly in my group for our games (Mostly BuffyAngel-verse stuff) and have since the book was released.

Did I see you capped Champions and Experienced Champions somewhere? Just so I know what points I'll need to go off of.

Offline DeathnoteTopic starter

Eh heh... sorry, but we already have three champions.  I won't be accepting any more Champion types until more Investigators / White Hats join.

Investigators / White Hats are, however, allowed to exchange up to 5 drama points for 2 XP per drama point exchanged (so up to 10 XP).  Hopefully, this will make the cast a bit more balanced.

*Nods* That's what I thought....I'll have to look through my bin of characters and see if I have any that are still "Investigator/White Hat" level.

The extra xp is nice though...that'll most likely help you balance things out.

Out of curiosity...since I typically play sandbox style games....How do dice games work on E?
