1920s is defeintaly the winner then over Modern Japan and the 1890s. I'll be out of town Saturday and Sunday but in the meantime whoever is interested can send me the following:
Your character's stats (I would prefear if everyone uses the 100 point build buy. No score higher then an 18 except Education which can be as high as 21. Everything else is figured out as normal. If you decide to have a score of 3 in something for some reason then I would be okay with a stat of 19. If you just wanna be random and use the dice system then go right ahead).
A backstory/history. Doesn't have to be long..just give me some idea of who they are. If you wanna leave something vague then feel free too but I might just use it in some..way then.
A list of three npcs. These npcs can be friends, enemies, allies, rivals, family or contacts. Anything from your mother who lives above you to that hooker who works around the corner. Be creative but try not to go overboard.
Anything particular you are interested in/looking for in the game. This could be anything from "I wanna get a chance to do something awesome." too "Can I get tentacle raped?" or "Can I not be tentacle raped?"
If you have any questions then let me know. Pm or im me.
Almost forgot, location and tying everything together. My thought is this, the game will be set in Arkham, Mass. The easiest way to get everyone together is to in some way be connected to Miskatonic University. If anyone wants to be a student then let me know cause there are actual guidelines to playing a student (just stuff like how high certain skills are).
Just cause it is set in Arkham though does not mean that your character has to be from there orignally. You do not have to play an American but at least make sure your character knows how to speak English (otherwise things will be hard for them).
