Actually, i've been looking through it and don't know if I will run it as it seems a bit intensive to use in an online game.  I will probaly run one or two other things instead or during it.  I have my own ideas I can use and then if it goes well, I'll think of using tatters.

London will still be the setting unless anyone objects strongly and would like to see another one for the 1920s.

I noticed something, my CoC books don't have the point buy method in them.  Is it one-per-one exchange on the attributes?

Oh, yes it is. 1 point gets you 1 stat point.  Its not too bad, it gives you essentially one low score and two really high ones or one really high one and a bunch of medium scores.  They use it in cthulhu: dark ages.

I'm only using it since I can't be there to watch everyone make characters.  But then..I have never seen a powergamed cthulhu character.  Everyone is equal in Great Cthulhu's tentacles...

It works.

And ...  powergamed ... CoC character?

 ???

I can't even think of a way to manage that.  Even giving max attributes everywhere, allowing a character to do magic from the start .... no, that character will die -faster- than the rest, I'd bet!

OK, Valerian and Shadowheart are in.  I could use at least one more player.

I'm in but I think we worked out that I'm the bait?  lol
Do we need to work out what reason these players would be looking for my character?

Well you might want a character to actually play as.

I've downloaded the quick start rules and am eager to play.  I'm going out of town early for the holiday weekend however and won't be able to post much over the next several days...

Ok, so far I got two characters with 3 more on their way.  I know that of the five we have: An author, a professor of botany (it was botany right?  I don't have it in front of me at this second) and an archeologist.  So far all the characters are female with the exception of one.  I'm thinking all the pcs, with the exception of the male, are members of a women's club.  Essentially the club is for women who are above the norm in their time.

I will decide how to get the male pc in as soon as I know what Beatrice is playing :)

Ok, so far I only have 3 characters.

We have:
Margaret Higgings (author) played by Shadowheart
Sara Carlyle (Botany professor) played by Valerian
Andrew Carson (student/cricket player) played by Beatrice Black


Last call for anyone else who is interested.

I've been looking things over and have a few questions (I only have the quick start rules).  I might be missing it but how much do things cost in point buy?  Thanks, -L

Its not in the quick start rules is why.  You have 100 points to buy your attributes.  You also have your skill points (based off of Edu and Int).  It's one for one.  Email or message me if you have any more :)  I can also check over it.

I would like to RP a really creepy house as a Shogoth!

No honestly. Are you planing on a follow-up round or something? I just had a look at the system and I don't think I will get into it anytime soon. That's why I would like to ask if it's ok if I just read along your RP-Round and maybe join the next time?
