You should add a +1 to each of those for using your Industrial power-"1870s" would be a +1, and 1860s would be a +2. It's 1880-1889 that's the +0.

Hm, okay. Will not turn down free bonuses.

I think I'll be an adequate pistoleer then. With Keystone in hand, I'll have a 14-die pool to meld my revolver via Industrial Caul, with successes becoming bonuses to my 8-die base attack pool. Stigmata Caul lets me (creepily) scout inaccessible places, and Stillness Caul makes me stealthy and able to teleport short distances. Can only use one of them at a time, but that should still be a flexible enough power set to stay relevant when the problem cannot be shot at.

Almost done, I'm just calculating secondary stats and filling in descriptive details for things like his Geist, The Captain.

I'll wait to see who plays what... On one side I kinda feel like playing a Morbus Vampire... The other I want to play a Sin-Eater, though seems that's becoming a popular vote. I'm a bit bleh on Changeling recently, but that as a Darkling is likely my third option.

My character would be a male if that comes into people's choices.

Well like, you'd be the second Sin-Eater. I haven't heard what other people want, but so far, only one Sin-Eater's been approved.

Waiting to see if Second Sight is okay to use as a source book.

I edited it in so you probably missed it. To repeat-it's good, I don't mind you using it, but just know you're very likely gonna be at a massive disadvantage.

Well, on the upside, you don't have to worry about anyone playing a Holy Engineer and combining the two things you despise: nWoD vampires and the God Machine, given that conspiracy-covenant originated in the 1960s.  >:)

Still not sure what I'd like to play, though. I'll mull it over. Demons and Mummies are verboten, Prometheans are less than ideal for cross-splat play, you'd be least happy with Vampires... Which leaves Changelings, Hunters, Mages, Sin-Eaters, and Werewolves. Pity Beast: the Primordial is still in first draft. This is exactly the kind of game that sounds like they're aiming for. Then again, it'd be post GMC rules anyway, so it would likely be equally verboten.  :-(

  Well, I know so far that my character will be she, and will probably be a mage.  ^_^;; 

  Changeling is also possible.

Thought I'd mention about skills incase of overlap, to see what we're all doing.

I think my character will be Socially gifted.

I tend to keep physical skills on tertiary, just getting a few basics. Probably looking at... Athletics 1, Stealth and Firearms (one having 1, the other 2) with some specialty in there to help. I expect there will be combat though I quite like scouty characters...

I can change depending on what people wanna be specialists in, thats my first thoughts anyway. As a Sin-Eater, I'll probably go for Stillness as a main Key, it's pretty useful in group games that are mixed. Not sure yet on Manifestations and other Key stuff. Depends on what kind of forces we'll be fighting and what everyone else would like to do.

Subtle can be its own powerful weapon in such a game, no one would know what she is while the others gladly power game away she can have her own more modest life enjoying the color of the city as a writer perhaps.

Hmm, So I have three  choices to make a Invictus vampire that is a member of the knightly order of the thorned wreath or the burning wreath Possibly a Nosferatu maybe with a bloodline if allowed might also play a ghoul of the characters as well so I can be active in the rp during the day. Go a changeling of some color not sure yet what would strike my fancy.The changeling might be a Dusk courtier though. Third option A werewolf of the Ghost wolves might be a park ranger if the Forestry service was created by the 1920's. I would welcome any input on what direction to go to break the impasse i am stuck at.

Just realised with this being a 1920s game I can make my hard-up '20s PI from my CoC games into a nwod character! ^__^

So brilliant! I have a backstory and some general ways to place my dots. I figure a Bonepicker or Reaper Archetype would be best fitting a use of their Keyed Manifestations.

I'm going to play a struggling writer with very little going for her, except for her psychic power of Mind Control not she will know its a power just if she wants someone to do something for her they tend to do it with some focus on the person. Well there is no reason she would think her "persuasive talents" are special with strong social skills already.

Well she can only get better and should slip nicely under the radar, and a young writer working on fame and resources would fit in nicely she could work someplace as she tries to get her first novel published (when she writes it). Why does this sound like lots of young writers in the history of literature?  ;D

Sounds like we have some excellent overlap, then - both thematically and in background. My character is a Reaper, a local cop killed by gang-on-gang violence. He's a pretty physical build; high Firearms and Dexterity/Stamina, with the Industrial Caul to turn him into Revolver Megaman.

The U.S. Forest Service was formed in 1905. Of the options, I'd advocate for the Werewolf simply because they're the most 'team-friendly' towards outside supernaturals on average between their mechanics and their social attitudes. And having an expert in Spirits will definitely help us.

Funny thing. Ghost-spirit hybrids are basically geists or nascent geists...

More accurately - they look from the outside like they're the same thing, even though they come from very different origins and have entirely different means of interacting with the world. Hybrids are literally that, fusions between ghost and spirit - a geist is a ghost that has catalyzed into a more elemental spirit-like form of its own accord. So they appear identical, though magic powers that effect spirits can't influence a geist, or vice versa.

Forgot the 5xp, so is on the radar with a little fame and a writer who is at least not going hungry - that's something.  ;D

And I found a picture, she is kind of non-descript:

Yes, someone remembered our SB conversation... ;)

@Glyph, I was gravitating towards Bonepicker, so that's sealed that then. I'm going to be more thinky-facey with my character, so I'll likely have some Manifestations etc to centre around that, whilst keeping the PI thing going. I think I'm gonna have a similar backstory to your char, with my char in CoC formerly being a federal agent. I may have some link to the Great War in there, but my CoC guy never fought due to being low down in the draft listings.
