I also have a sheet that could be used, simple .txt like Josietta's.  Makes copy/pasting it into a post quite easy.

KotE is also a different game, that's like saying Werewolves are too powerful compared to Neonates. The Wan Kuei have their own disadvantages, though, and their disciplines cost as much as Mage spheres to increase. Vampires have it easy by comparison. Becoming one of the Ten Thousand Demons is basically torture, hell, torture and some more hell on top.  XD

But isn't that the fun part? I always loved the depth of depravity you could go into with those characters. And yet there is this almost ritualistic pattern in which you have to increase your powers. The complexity is delicious!

A.txt sheet would be alot easier to handle and send through PMs at least.   So that works fine with me.

I go to sleep for 8 gorram hours, and you people blow up this thread. Jeez.

Anyway, yes, Seattle may be close to Forks, but any sparklers will be punished and destroyed. And having a character sheet, .txt or otherwise, would be amazing, as myth-weavers doesn't (why have you betrayed me!)

Yeees. It is. I'd love a good game of KotE ... only found one once on RPOL, but it was ... well, terrible and best not spoken of. Ahhh, to cultivate Bakemono in the torture gardens ... hm, I may have to read up on the terminology sometime, but my first pick would be a Devil Tiger. Plenty of things I'd love to do with other Dharma, including the forbidden ones, but that would require actual games to exist.

Speaking of sparkling, one time, in a VtM game a while back, I was playing a Malk who was a trickster by Nature. One day, he set up a trick; you guys know the 'bucket of water' trick, where someone walks through a partly open door, and there's a bucket of water balanced on the top of it? So the person gets doused?

Well, my Malk did that. But, instead of water, it was glitter.  First one of his Coterie to come through and get glittered, my Malk made a bit of a drama fit (drama student before the Embrace), and weeped over how his dear friend had acquired "Edward Cullens' Disease".

They were not nearly as amused as everyone else was.  >:)

I feel like I'm looking at an Exalted character sheet, actually. The Attributes are exactly the same, in any case. And yes I know, most WW sheets are just copy pastes, but this more so.

Most WW character sheets do look similar with minor differences to whatever type you are playing, IE in Werewolf you would have Gnosis and Rage.

Also, Hades can't get online until his computer is out of the shop, so he likely won't get back to us for another day or two.

As someone who is currently on a borrowed machine because her computer died, I sympathize.

Since he can't get here, anyone mind helping me make a character then?

I spoke to him on the phone a few minutes ago and he still has a good bit of rules and info for character creation to add. So I'd hold off on making characters but writing up backgrounds is a good idea.

I might go with a Toreador for once.  I've never gotten to actually play one.

And someone has to show the world Toreador don't have to be simpering idiots, right?

I'll wait until the aforementioned updated requirements before I do anything though, I'm totally interested and would like to play but I'll hold off on write-ups until I know what's wanted.

Hmm, debating between Toreador or Gangrel. If I go Gangrel, I can't shake the idea of a somewhat handsome man in a nice suit, taking you for everything you got as you sign away your company, then he flashes you a sharktoothed grin and tells you it was quite fun to duke it out with you...Although, that might be more served by a Ventrue.

I think what I got in my head was a friend's old Shark Shaman from Shadowrun 3e and then, in the wild chaos that is my mind, it became a Gangrel who 'hunts' among the corrupt elite. But hey, chaos is a good thing. Right?

Notes
Backgrounds
Allies
Daniel maintains close ties to Brian Philips, the news director for KIRO channel 7, sharing ‘dinner’ with the man and his family once every couple of weeks, using this connection to keep an eye on local stories and very occasionally manipulating them as necessary.

Contacts
Daniel keeps track of one of the younger anchors at KING channel 5 news, as well as a reporter for the Seattle Times, occasionally trading favors to be kept apprised of changes in the network and paper’s policies as well as occasional copies of stories that have been buried.

Herd
Brian, Sandy, and their daughter’s “dinners” tend to be more for Daniel’s benefit than theirs.

Influence
While he uses this influence in any active capacity only sparingly, it is nevertheless valuable to have eyes, ears, and hands in the television and print news media.

Resources
Nearly a century of unlife has left Daniel with a surplus of available funds.  While he does not manage his money directly, he is capable of evaluating finance specialists well enough, and impressing them enough, to feel relatively secure that his assets are being managed well.

Retainers
Daniel has two ghouls, Janet and Simon, who act as secretary/legal proxy and driver/bodyguard respectively.  In addition to this, he maintains a relationship with a very young Toreador, acting in a mentor-like capacity to young Oscar.  While normally a Kindred retainer would probably cost more than a single point, Daniel’s relationship with Oscar is weaker than that of a usual retainer, and is intended to represent Oscar taking Daniel as a Mentor as much as anything else.

Status
Daniel has spent a great deal of effort making himself a valuable Camarilla asset in Seattle over the last decade and a half.  He has garnered some respect—and potentially some enemies.

Flaw
Enemy
Daniel’s first attempts to move into the media met with unmitigated failure, as an attempt to overtake control over an Omni Television station’s news network met unexpected and stiff resistance.  He saw an opportunity to move into another station and took it rather than extending a protracted influence battle, but made an enemy of the station manager along the way.

Daniel is unaware that the station manager is not fully human.  The station manager is equally unaware of Daniel’s state.  This is probably best for everyone involved, as should either of them become aware of the other’s ‘condition’, things may escalate from behind the scenes maneuvering into a bloody battle very quickly.

Specialties
Attributes
Intelligence: “Just As Planned”
Manipulation: “What is he up to?”

Abilities
Expression: Cynical Satire
Subterfuge: “Never suspected a thing…”

History
History
Born in France early in the prior century, Daniel was a writer who saw a great need for social change in his country as he watched the first World War rage across the nation.  His writings, though never terribly popular, found traction amongst a particular sort of young firebrand, and he caught the eye of several soldiers that found his criticism… lacking.  Caught alone one evening, he was beaten to within an inch of his life, and would likely have died were he not saved by his sire.

Embraced that very night, Daniel quickly discovered that while his sire had targeted him for the Embrace for several weeks, and found his works terribly amusing, there was little tolerance for challenging the Camarilla’s social structure.  Growing bitter and cynical, at first, Daniel found himself floundering in the pool of sharks that was the European Camarilla, and it was quickly apparent that he would find nothing but ridicule and punishment for his dark, biting sense of humor.

It was early in the 1940s that Daniel determined to leave for America.  His sire was not pleased with the decision, but it was not until the Germans Blitzkrieg overran much of France that Mikhael finally chose to allow it.  Daniel could never know that Mikhael never thought his vessel would arrive in America.

Daniel found it difficult to settle in America, at first, but by the 1960s had found that America, like Daniel himself, had grown tired of watching a world tear itself apart.  His writing enjoyed a surge of popularity during this period, but it was little more than a passing fad, as the peace movements and social changes of the 60s were no place for the bitter, jaded cynicism of a man who watched his country burn twice.

The 90s saw Daniel’s writing grow popular once more, and during this period he even tried his hand at songwriting, though he found himself woefully unsuited to it, and returned to his preferred milieu of social commentary and bitter parable.  His books found a small cult following for a short while, but never found more than mediocre success.  Still, it was better than nothing, and Daniel has never given up on it.

When the Baron joined the Camarilla, Daniel saw in this a chance, an opportunity, and for the first time in his unlife seized it with both hands.  After a few initial stumbles, he found a bit of stable ground, and has determined that this will be his hill, one way or another.  He’s found a home, and a certain countercultural acceptance for his work.  For the first time in over a decade, Daniel feels he may finally have found home.

And he will be damned if he watches this one burn.
