Quick Notes

When you're all done with your PC and have submitted it through Jove shoot me a heads up (via email at vampire [at] woddenver [dot] com or my AIM at iplaymyradio) so I know it's awaiting approval.

While it is by no means required for all submission (it is for some), players are welcome and encouraged to discuss concepts with the Admin before submission. I am willing to discuss everything from more plot-intensive hooks to NPC relations and whatever else you might want to play, though I can't promise every idea will be possible.

  • No attributes or abilities above 4.

  • No more than two 4s in your Attributes, no more than three 4s in your Abilities.

  • We are not supporting Mage or any sub-genre of it. Luckily Denver has a system for that! Any numina or type of hedge magic is going to be considered on a case-by-case basis.

  • Lores are not available to Mortals at creation though they may be earned in character through play. Limited Vampire and Sect Lore may be considered for some Ghoul concepts.

  • If you are creating a Ghoul, the PC's Domitor must be another player's PC. This does not apply to Independent and Rogue Ghouls. Ghouls may take Potence 1 and an in-clan Discipline of their Domitor at 1, but otherwise use the same Creation Guidelines as those below. XP and Freebies may be spent on more Disciplines.

Concepts

A (by no means comprehensive) List of Allowed Concepts:

  • Criminals, thugs and gangbangers (including porn stars)

  • Street hustlers

  • Starving artists

  • Lower-ranking church officials

  • Lower-level police officers (beat cops) and detectives

  • Medium

  • Ghouls

(Most definitely) Not Allowed:

  • Sorcerers

  • Kinfolk

  • Characters younger than 18 years of age

Advanced Concepts (that must be discussed before submission):

Putting Together the Dots
