About to play Metro 2033. That should be fun!

Let me know how it is, I've been thinking of picking that one up.

I'm ok with the concept. 
3084  Roleplaying / Role Playing Sign up and OOC / Re: Anyone interested in Hunter RP? (oWoD) on: March 19, 2010, 12:15:23 pm
Progress check.

Out of the people who posted that they were interested we currently have...

TheLastOutlaw:  Character sheet and backstory.

Firesolved:  Character sheet, backstory in progress.

Cheez:  Getting a copy of the rules to work on his character sheet.

Raryn:  Getting a copy of the rules to work on his character sheet.

Cricco:  No update.

Log: No update.

Helmi:  No update.

This is as much for my reference as anything.  It appears we're on track to start next weekend provided I get some more backstory info in but even that seems to be on track.  Have fun =)

Mercy is one of the virtues, my character is an Innocent which is one of the three Mercy creeds.  If you had an Avenger your virtue would be Zeal instead.  Every charcter starts with three virtue based on their creed.  If you want more info on the Creeds and Virtues White Wolf has a decent wiki here

Conviction and willpower are a little more complex but in a nutshell it's how you use your abilities and "level up".  If you can gain 10 conviction you can cash them in and get another virtue point which can then be spent on more "edges" (which are your cool powers.)  Edges come in level, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and you can't buy a higher level edge until you have the preceding level.  In other words you have to buy 1 before you buy 2 and so on regardless of how much virtue you have.  I'll give you more detail later when I get home and get to my books.

Triggers are optional details you can add that describe what action or method your character uses to activate an edge.  Virtue is the path your character follows, Mercy, Vision or Zeal.  Characters start with 3 virtue and usually use them to buy their level 1 and level 2 edges.  Your first 3 virtue points are always keyed to your creed but you can earn virtue in other paths dependant upon your characters actions.  All of the edges are creed specific and are listed in the Mr Gone PDFs. If you need details on what the edges do let me know.

Brandon just turned 18 and should be in the middle of his senior year of high school right now.  Instead he’s recently dropped out and decided he’s going after his dream of making it big with his band; DeathWish.  They’ve been doing well lately, getting a nice following in the local club scene and he’s made enough to get a small apartment in a not completely shitty part of town and a decent motorcycle.  He has a guitar, a place of his own and hangs out in clubs all night getting hit on by hot chicks, he figures life is about as good as it’s ever going to get.  At least it’s better than his past.

Brandon grew up in a decent suburb of Brookvale, his parents had money and belonged to the right social circles, the fact that Brandon was constantly in trouble was the only thing that held them back, or so they always told him.  Brandon had never felt very close to them anyway, in fact more often than not he wasn’t home; instead he spent his time downtown hanging out with “bad influences.”  In the last few years Brandon has become an accomplished petty thief and if he had to he could make a living just through that.  He’s seen both sides of the tracks and believes that people are equally likely to be “good” or “bad” regardless of where they’re from or what their background is.  In fact his moral compass has been floating in a sea of gray itself lately.  Generally speaking he believes people are more good than evil but he’s seen his share of evil as well.

Brandon has always had a morbid fascination with death and the afterlife.  His mother tells him it’s because he watches so much of that “trash” (horror movies) but Brandon knows better, he knows it’s because there really is an unexplainable side of the world.  He had grown up not far from the old abandoned Brookhurst Manor and from an early age had seen the unexplainable there more than once, culminating in an ill advised adventure where he spent the night there during the summer after his eighth grade in school.  He never told anyone what he had experienced there that night but it further fueled his interest in the “unexplained.”  But it was around this time that the premature streak of gray in his hair first appeared as well as his chronic nightmare problem.  Brandon is naturally intelligent and inquisitive but isn’t much for book learning.

Time to post your sheets and backstory.

Hey Helmi, good to see you again.

EDIT:  FUCK YEA.  I finally found my missing Hunter books, my character sheet and backstory will definitely be up tomorrow.
3089  Roleplaying / Role Playing Sign up and OOC / Re: Anyone interested in Hunter RP? (oWoD) on: March 17, 2010, 11:37:02 am
I'll be posting my character sheet and backstory either later today or tomorrow.

So here are the basics for character creation.

Step 1  Pick your concept, creed, nature and demeanor.  

Fire covered these pretty well earlier but I'll recap.  Concept is the characters overall theme.  Examples are streetwise punk, homeless guy, divorced mom, serial killer.  The options are endless.  Creeds have already been loosely discussed for more info feel free to ask or even google the white wolf wiki.  Nature and demeanor are like Firesolved already said, nature is who your character really is.  For example Zealot is a rogue by nature meaning he's looking out for himself above all else and gains conviction by furthering his own agenda.  Rebel is his demeanor, its the face he puts on and what most people perceive him as.  The editable PDFs I linked to earlier have every White Wolf nature/demeanor already loaded in drop down boxes.  Most are pretty self explanatory and you can make up your own if you want.

Step 2.  Choose attributes.

Every attribute gets 1 dot filled in automatically.  You then have 6, 4, and 3 points to spread across each category, Physical, Mental and Social.  Just pick which category gets which priority.    (You know you want to build a socially inept tank :p)

Step 3.  Abilities

No ability goes higher than 3 at this point and these do NOT get one free dot to start with.  Spread your points out 11, 7 and 4 to Talents, Skills, Knowledges in any priority you prefer.

Step 4  Advantages.

You can spend 5 points in backgrounds and spend your 3 starting virtue points (edges).  I personally would prefer that no character starts with arsenal greater than 1 and even then I’d like to talk about why they have a gun in the first place.  I played a campaign once where the story teller let a starting character begin with arsenal 5 and the whole thing became roll dice to shoot stuff which isn’t all that much fun.    Again, the Mr. Gone PDFs are great because all of the backgrounds and edges are in the drop down boxes.

Step 5.  Finish up.

Mark your starting conviction (according to creed, everyone starts with 3 except avengers, martyrs and waywards start with 4)  

Spend your freebie points.  You get 21 points to spend at this point with the following restrictions.

You can’t raise conviction over 8 points.
You can’t buy edges or virtue with freebie points.

Freebie point breakdown is as follows.
Attributes 1 dot = 5 free points
Abilities 1 dot = 2 points
Backgrounds, willpower, conviction 1 dot = 1 point

I’d prefer backgrounds or abilities not be raised above 3 dots without talking about it first, other than that go nuts.

Between this and the PDF character sheets you should be good to go, if you have any questions on specifics let me know.
