Ok, this will be where everyone will generate/discuss their character creation stuff, askin' questions and the like. This way the actual OOC conversations are kept to a minimum. What I'd also like to do, if everyone is amenable, is setting up an IM chattroom on like Yahoo or something if we have a big enough group so the storytellers and the players can have private conversations if necessary so that other characters are unaware of certain things.

I'm still hammering out the specifics of how to work this, but we'll try and keep this thread for character creation and questions thereto.:viking:

Alright, MerrisHawk had a great idea in her thread:
http://www.mysticwicks.com/showthread.php?t=137859

And I think I'll borrow some her ideas b/c its a really great way to start out. I'm just gonna change it a bit.

We will have a brief description here of your character and i'll put up my character first. Where we will divert from MH's model is with the addition of clans, disciplines, sects and ghouls.

Everyone will start out at 10th generation. You pick your clan. Your clan has access to certain disciplines (outlined here: http://www.mysticwicks.com/showthread.php?t=136785) with a link to each discipline. You can pick three disciplines from that list. To keep the flavor of the rpg, after the end of a chronicle, if you are successful in accomplishing certain tasks, you gain another standard power. When you have acquired five standard powers, the next time you level up, you get one of the Advanced Powers (this will be a long way off so don't worry). You may only use each discipline once per night.

Other than that, we'll leave it open-ended for now. As everyone gets more comfortable we can start new chronicles integrating more of the rules into it for the more advanced players.

Remember, this is an rpg, you are portraying a character. Anything not game related, use OOC: (out of character) at the bottom of your post.

Hopefully everyone will have fun and we can get a real thing hoppin' here, GAME ON!!!:fpipesmok :fpartyfav :abanana:

Oh, almost forgot, if you have any questions, either post them here, PM me or any of the other more experienced players. ok.

Due to the constant abuse, she started to lose her sanity. She was chosen by her sire at the age of 17 because of her name. For a time, she lived with her sire, until he abandoned her.

Hmm, everyone seems to be getting confused as I've been getting a bunch of PMs. I wanted to stick to just 3 powers all together but if everyone wants to go for more I'm game. I just figured it would be easier to keep track of three powers.

Sorta like this:

Serpentis: <choose 3 powers>

OR

Serpentis <choose 2 powers>
Dominate <choose 1 power>

OR

Serpentis <choose 1 power>
Dominate <choose 1 power>
Auspex <choose 1 power>

But if anyone's up for more let me know. For experienced players its no big deal, I just thought it would be easier for newer players to keep track of. Everyone let me know.

September 20th, 2006, 01:13 PM
Well guys, I'm not sure how much time I'll be able to put into the actual RPG, but I'll always take the chance to be able to make a character sheet... also, I'm a little confused as to the details of the disciplines, I'm assuming that since we're creating new characters that we can only use the first level of the disciplines we choose... if I'm wrong, let me know so I can pick better disciplines.

Character Name: Juniper-Threase
Clan: Malkavian/Nosferatu/Brujah
Sect: Anarchs
Generation: 10th
Disciplines:

Obfuscate: Cloak of Shadows
Potence
Dementation: Incubus Passion

Physical Description: 5 foot 4 inches, average to slim build, shoulder-length chestnut hair with streaks of copper and blond, bright green eyes. Her body was slightly deformed by the Nosferatu blood, making her ears pointed, her fangs slightly longer than the usual vampire and giving her skin a slightly green tinge. To hide her deformities, she chose to adopt the punk/goth image, blending in with the freaks.

Haven: A crumby, abandoned bachelor pad on the bad end of town.


Special Details/History: Juniper-Threase is the result of an experiment of the Camerilla. She was captured as a human and drained dry by vampires from three different sects. She was first bitten by a Malkavian, followed by a Nosferatu, and finally a Brujah. She was then fed blood by all three of the same vampires. The results were unexpected, but phenomenal.

Instead of dying like the previous test subjects, Juniper-Threase’s body adapted to all three blood types, and became something unique. Her appearance changed drastically from the blond-haired beauty she was. The Malkavian blood made her almost instantly insane, shattering her mind into three identities. Each identity adopted characteristics from one of the bloodlines, as well as one of their main disciplines.

The primary identity chooses to call herself J-T. She thinks of herself as a Nosferatu, and displays many of their talents and personality traits. She is an experienced hacker, which makes her valuable and gives her a superiority complex. She also possesses the Obfuscate discipline.

The second identity calls herself Threase. She considers herself to be a Brujah, and follows the Brujah role to a T. She is passionate and quick to anger, and will use force when she deems it necessary (and she almost always finds it necessary). She has the Potence discipline to back her up, and is getting stronger everyday.

The third identity prefers to be called Juniper. She is the essence of Malkavian, which is evident from the moment she begins to speak. Almost nothing she says makes sense, at least to those who don’t pay attention. She is generally a sweet girl, and doesn’t like to argue or take lives. When confronted, she generally retreats into herself to let Threase handle the situation, or she uses her Dementation to sway the situation in her favor.

After learning her situation, Juniper-Threase escaped from the Camerilla lab and ran. They tried going to her home, but quickly realized that they would be caught if they went anywhere familiar. They broke into their own home, took everything they could carry that would fetch a price, and bought a bus ticket to Washington D.C. Then they found an abandoned apartment to stash their stuff, and began to search for more of her kind…
