Veils and illusions, like what Molly uses, would fit very well with a thief-type. Nothing like being able to go invisible, or nearly so, for someone trying to steal things.

Your read my mind, Jeremiahh ;-) After a loooong character creation session with HH (thank you, Hairy!!!),  I think we cooked up a pretty awsome character :-)

Well at least post the concept and some Aspects, then, 'cause I'm still wracking my mind over appropriate Aspects  :-(

can't think of a reason why not.  We're still in mid-stream on char-gen and city building.
any objections, H2?

 Sweet thank you both. I will begin working on a character tomorrow as I have to finish work today. You have no idea how much this means to me. :)

Is there still room in this game, or have you filled up?

We might be able to wedge you in, amigo, but it's gettin' a bit tight around the edges.
And good to see you were able to get back in!   :-)

Welp, it's official, college taking precedense over online stuffs. Keagan Krogh is out of the running, but I do hope the game will take off nicely with the rest of you.

Enjoy yourselves  :-)

...seems like every time we lose one, another pops up in their place.

Which is a good thing, I suppose, seeing as how games die because of lack of interest.

Welcome aboard.  I'm Reiji, and it seems right now I'm the only one of the crew up, so...any questions you have, direct them to me.

I guess a quick summary of what's already been discussed would be all I really need.  I've got the pdf's, I'm in a SotC game and I've read all the books up to Turn Coat so I'm fairly grounded on when it comes to generalities.

That any handy info you might think I would need to know.

Okay. 

"Let me sum up..."

Right now, the characters we have are the following.

One Pure Mortal - a hit squad leader for the Venatori Umborum  (or as you'll hear me refer to them, the Machine Gun Masons)
One Champion of God - the new earthly leader of the Knights Templar, destroyed during the Crusades by Nicodemus & the Denarians.
One Emissary of Power - a son of the Egyptian god Set who gets a lot of crap because of his dad's reputation.
One Focused Pracitioner - a dancer who has Avatar-style Firebending powers.
Three Wizards - two Wardens, and one under the Doom of Damocles.
One Custom Template (approved by GM) - a Kitsune thief of arcane goodies.  (Or at least, that's what I've gathered.)

The refresh level is Chest Deep.  Starting points are 8, and 30 skills points.


Current setting for the game is post-Katrina NOLA, and we're trying to decide on possible plotlines and threats and important places within the city.

Thanks!  I'm going through the character generation thread right now and it's a little overwhelming to take in all at once.

Wow that is a lot of characters, me getting in would bump that up to 9.  Still, if there's room, I'll definitely take it.  Idea in my head so far is a Scion, half-human half-dragon.  I looked at Emissary of Power and wasn't interested in being someone's agent, more into being an unfortunate by-product.

A few character suggestions, if you're still debating. 

1 - While we have plenty of magic-users (Wizard/Sorcerer, and the both the Emissary of Power and the Focused Practitioner have Channeling), we are missing out on having Fae magic.  A Faerie Knight (of an as-of-yet unnamed Court) would be a way.

2 - If you don't want the Emissary of Power's Template, the other option for a Scion is the Changeling Template.  If you went with the Changeling-type option, here's what it would mean for you.  The more power you accumulate, the closer to your supernatural parent you would become.  So, basically, if you accumulated more power, you'd be more dragon-like.

I forgot about that bit.  That might be an issue that needs to be discussed with others.

Perhaps.  One thing that you could take that would help a draconic-appearing character would be Glamours.  One the other hand, you could go the Thomas route, and only have your draconic features manifest whenever you use your powers...

That's what I was thinking of, maybe taking the human guise stunt.  Or make him sort of like a were-creature in that he needs to shift into another form to get access to some dragon-y goodness.
