I might be interested. I played Cthulhu a few times, but surely I'll need help with the character generation. And I like the idea of a game where we slowly (hmm, slowly?) discover the truth about Delta.
As for a character, perhaps I need something more on the story. If I should just make one on the spot, hmm.. Perhaps I can throw in an idea and you tell me what you think about it.
>now reviewing the post on suggestions from TrippingSerpent: extended background.
A librarian from the Library of Congress, working with a small group that manages a sector of "forbidden" books. A rational man, always considered the issue laughable. Until a certain woman came searching for him.
Thick glasses, thin, tall body; a quick metabolism, needing to eat frequently. Dark, ruffled hair, dressing in outdated clothes.
He has no social skills and lives a life of isolation, loathing company, and especially women. One of the reasons for that (or perhaps an effect, who knows) is his well hidden attitude to take pleasure in the suffering of others; he finds an outlet by hunting, when he can walk alone in forests, shooting animals not to kill but to wound them, observing their slow death, sometimes skinning them alive with a small, curved knife he always carries with him.
His reclusion was challenged once by a woman - a prostitute, he thought at the time, who found him on the street and proposed, insisting so much that he did not manage to send her away. The price settled was unusually low, and she kept making questions.
Once they were in a nameless hotel, he felt like losing all his inhibitions, making love wildly, talking all the time. It was the talking that made him suddenly alert. He was talking about the books under his custody, something he was not supposed to be doing. He understood that she was playing tricks with his mind.
He took off knife and cut the back of his own hand. Deeply. The pain made him focus and for a moment he could see the woman as something different. Then he turned the blade against her.
