                Weakness
Cannot harm another, even in self-defense.
Doing so subtracts 2 dice from all roles for
the remainder of the scene.

Any use of Valeren above the second level
causes third eye to open. Concealing an
open eye is painful and imparts a one die
penalty to all rolls.

Tentatively done crunch stuff!
I still need to talk to Kolbrandr about who, specifically, my Allies and Contacts are, but I believe all my other backgrounds are covered in my bio.

Sorry, been slacking on this - I should have it finished up today (Friday)

Offline KolbrandrTopic starter

This just came up when talking char creation. Yes, you can take combo disciplines at starting if you know from what those suckers are and have one in mind and run it by me obviously.

Does 1/3rd of its xp cost in bp sound fair? Question opened to the floor.

Offline RubySlippers

I can't seem to come up with such a long character background.

Offline KolbrandrTopic starter

Would you like me to resend you your previous character background?

Offline RubySlippers

My clan changed but that could work, so do so.  :-)

Is this still recruiting?

Likely, the more the merrier.

Still recruiting, yep! Worse comes to worse you just join in slightly after the others.

Cool.  Looking at either a Malkavian prophetess, a Lasombra nun or a Tzimsce nobleman's wife.  Any preference?

Offline KolbrandrTopic starter

I'd lean to the first or third of those, if only because we don't have anyone from either of those clans as of yet, though if the nun appeals to you, go with that.

Bear in mind with the nobleman's wife thing, you're several centuries old, if you're a nobleman's wife, that would likely be under some kind of cover identity or some suchery.

Yeah, I got that covered.  Ghouls and Vicissitude make such affairs easy.

I think I might go with the noble, actually.  Got a relatively cool concept.  Or I think so at least.

Offline KolbrandrTopic starter

Feel free to pursue it then. Let me know if you have any questions otherwise, and just remember to shoot me a character backstory first before you do any sheet work.

Offline KolbrandrTopic starter

any updates from those still working on backstories?

How are we doing sheet-wise? I think I still need to flesh out some allies/contacts/etc kinda stuff with your help too :)

Working on it.  Sorry, busy weekend.

Offline RubySlippers

I just need to do her Childer as her Allies and add them to her background. 

Offline RubySlippers

I decided not to play this.

Alright, fair enough.

I'm still in.  Working on backstory once I finish one more post.

Was hoping to get everyone's sheets in before doing comparative work of "how do they look between each other", but I'll just forge ahead with sorting out stat questions I think with Ruby dropping out.

Do you want the backstory PMing or posted here?

Offline KolbrandrTopic starter

PM first would be ideal

Offline KolbrandrTopic starter

slight delay while I scream in frustration and smash my head into my desk at Ell having eaten some of the posts I was sending out on your characters. I think the one to Kythia got through.
