So how are we doing housing and vehicles, can we team up to acquire them?

Do you want us to do purchase rolls now or wait?

Hello all,

I am your Dedicated Hero with a strong medical background.

Just don't call me 'House'


Come on now, I hear you're feeling down
Well I can ease your pain. Get you on your feet again
Relax, I'll need some information first
Just the basic facts. Can you show me where it hurts?

Those of you who have sent me private messages regarding character sheets, I'll look over them this weekend and let you know if you need to make any changes.

Regarding housing, you can assume that your character has a house/apartment/condo appropriate to his/her economic status (based on Wealth bonus). I'll also allow you to start with a vehicle appropriate to his/her economic status if you feel it is necessary.

Characters will not start out knowing each other and will not have any experience with Shadow or the supernatural.

What's everybody shooting for long-term? Advanced classes and all that? I'm leaning towards Battle Mind, but I'd like to see what everyone else has planned.

Hello!  Wassup?  I'm gonna introduce myself by yanking Makera's move;

Back in the back
Of a Cadillac
Number one with a
bullet, I'm a power pack
Yes, I'm in a bang
With a gang
They've gotta catch me
If they want me
To hang


I'm going to be playing Irwin Bishop, a or the Face Man.  I'm going with Charismatic with a potential splash into Tough if things get that far.  My general concept is that I'm that actor in that thing you saw that time but can't quite remember.  The B rated action movie star.  And oh my, if y'all have a sense of humor and like your cheese to be Velvetta, then we should get along smoothly.  I played this character concept in two conventions and a table top and it went over quite well.  :)

Jorge... Sweet.  Any thoughts on possibly being a limo driver on the side?  Just, because, it gives us a reason to interact / have some sort of connection right off the bat.  It was an idea that immediately struck me.  Sorry if it's too much.  :)

I might attend; I just won't be interested in the swords and axes; give me a light mace or a dagger any day.
I might be the jester or the stage performer.

Oh, Devin makes all kinds of things, and yes most at a ren-fair would be looking for swords and axes but he makes other weapons and armor upon request. He also makes 'day-to-day' things, nails, hinges, cookware that kind of stuff.

He might also stand out as he is a big Norse looking SoB wandering around in a kilt, and working the forge in it as well.

If he's got a signaturr mark, your character may be one of those 'artists' if you don't mind opening up the box a little... Because I think yes, my character is the sort to have a suit of armor in the corner and a wall full of "cool looking" swords. He wouldn't go to a Renfest without being invited, because it wouldn't cross his mind. But once Irwin learned what a Ren fest was, he'd go and have a good time.

What do you guys think about me sort of moving my build towards the secret agent? Is it something that has potential without getting smoked?

If you are asking about a touchmark, his is an anvil with two crossed hammers and the initials D.S. there will also be a date depending on the size of the item it will be a two digit year or a four digit month/year.

If you are asking about a signature stile, he keeps his arms and armor functional (within the local laws) and stays away from the fancy designs.

Re Irwin : I have no problems with your character working towards becoming a spy/secret agent/etc. as long as they don't start any wars or work for the 'bad guys'.

To everyone he meets he stays a stranger
With every move he makes
Another chance he takes
Odds are he won't live to see tomorrow

  Ok so Warren is finished, He's a tough-guy detective that took redundancy from the police force in Britain to move to America and conduct a one-man search for his missing niece. You'll usually find him in the cheaper bars looking for missing husbands on a bender, or at the police department harassing one officer or another about a case he's working. He stands a little over 6 feet tall and has a very heavy build. He has pale blue eyes, short-cut dark brown hair and a clean shaven face.

It probably seemed longer to her. Post has been changed to a more accurate estimation.

Wonder what the people upstairs are doing? I'm sure they are at least talking to each other.
