    Thank you for doing that. Could you get them to post their character's motivation in the thread? How many people are participating in the game?

    Alright, kind of wish they'd post, but it's fine. I'd like to have everyone post in the OOC thread before we start the game.

    Okay, the game will start once thedarkstone gets his sheet done. An RP with one person doesn't really work.

    OK, honestly considered dropping this, but hay, why toss an awesome character down the drain. I had gotten another friend to join, but as they just started GMing their first game on the forums I'll bet they're out. But lets see if we can't gather our group back

    Though I feel it fare to warn you guys that I'm in a huge game, Dming a bigger game (over ten players each controlling millions pulling obscure rule manipulations from all over D&D3.5 , I'm new to this system, and I'm learning nWoD for another game at the same time Anywho lets have fun with it. (I'm not gonna bother looking up a way for good mechanical prowess in this despite that I have low rolls that likely warrant some)

    My wife was eaten and now I creep in the woods (still finishing up backstory/skills/equipment)

    backstory:
    Spoiler
    Show
    He was once a vary unhappy man, he lived with his wife and two children, but his life was so normal and routine that he could never really call himself happy. Sure he loved he wife and kids, but they never really wanted to spend more time with him, nor he with them.

    One day his wife mentioned seeing something in the woods, he couldn't recall exactly what, maybe an odd man or something, but he mostly ignored it saying that she had been overreacting. She agreed and let it drop not bringing it up again... than one day she didn't come home with the kids after practice. He waited a while and eventually called the authorities, but they were gone. No rhyme or reason, just gone.

    Slowly but surely a great tear opened within his life, his wife and children had left without a word, not even packing. Eventually his boss fired him as his grief began taking over in the office. afterward he hunkered down by the foot of his bed like he would when he and his wife were newly married back when he would just comb her hair, and they could both be so easily contented with that as their world, after all what else would they need but his rough callused hands and her silky black hair?

    Oh what he wouldn't give to return to those times, oh what he wouldn't give to see his wife again. Lately he had taken to reading her diary and reminiscing of their wonder days, but as he turned the page again he saw dried tears on the page of how he had so easily shrugged off her concerns, and while the last entry had shaken it off as nerves this one sounded as if it were really eating at her. As he read he saw this figure take greater and greater presence consuming her life until no longer did she mention their son scoring a goal, but instead how unnaturally tall this man was, and how thin as well, it described everything from the way he dressed to how the lighting hid his face, and even to her suspicions that he may not have a face.

    Naturally as a husband he was worried and began looking into it, but as his insanity grew he threw himself head first into this world of horror, finding everything that he could (which wasn't much), and so he took to stalking the woods at night looking for this tall man. After a night of dearly cutting some random bloke in half the husband finally decided that he would give up is house and go missing himself, tell anyone that he encountered that his name was 'Dave', and create a new life, at the same time cautioning himself to think before he leaps, sticking to bushes and waiting for that thin thin man...


    is self alleged monster hunter a fare choice of occupation for background? I figure he worked with his hands, probably construction or the like before, but I think self alleged monster hunter fits better considering that he became obsessed with it, lost his job, and probably made a point to learn things relevant to 'monster hunting' (or killing the guy his wife's with depending on how it turns out ) but your call GM

    (bridgar, please tell me if I'm doing it wrong )

    Getting the band back together? Only as long as we are on a mission from god.

    Could you post your sheet again here?

    Alright, both of you have +0 DB (Damage Bonuses) for your melée strikes.

    Now choose your 8 occupation skills, and multiply your EDU by 20. Add these points to the base chances of your occupation skills however you want.

    Then multiply your INT by 10, those are your personal interest points, and can be applied wherever you want.

    You know what, just look at the skills on my character sheet for another CoC game. It might help a lot.

    IC Thread is up, so far I'm focusing on Giles, since he has a full sheet, and a backstory, while also being active.

    Feel free to introduce your characters, we can keep it loosely freeform until sheets are done.

    How's it look now? I spent all of the points I was given, chose my skills, changed his age, named my character...gave him a job, though he's recently become unemployed.

    As for a reason for coming to Mackinac, I suppose he is likely looking for a retreat from the world. He's been dealing with mental patients for a while now, and he needs a lot of personal time.

    @Ocel

    From Mary's description, there seems to be a mixture of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and Paranoia. And since you got such a good roll, you notice that she is kind of anxious, or suspicious, you can deduce this by her looking over her shoulder every other minute.

    @Darkstone

    Sheet looks good, your free to post in the thread.

    Edit:Sorry, you can't start skills at 90. Lower them a bit, maybe to 80 or 75. Once a skill hits 90 you get a sanity point boost.
