RTJ and Character Creation
Welcome to The Morrow Project JR-V13! This will be a roleplay-heavy game centered around a small group of volunteers who are attempting to rebuild the United States after a nuclear apocalypse against overwhelming odds.

A full set of requirements and setting rules can be found here, but the basics follow:

  • Human
  • Seasoned rank
  • No Arcane Backgrounds or other supernatural Edges, Hindrances, etc.
  • No serious mental or physical flaws (see link above for details)
  • No magic, mutations, or other supernatural abilities.



Your character is part of a team that has trained together for at least one year. Each team member has a designated position within the team (Team Lead, Scout, Contact Specialist, Security, etc) as well as a specialization that aids the Project's goals (Governance, Communications, Economics, Agriculture, etc). Consider these roles and where your character fits in.

RTJ format should be:

Name:
Desired Team Position:
Higher Education: [Degree] in [Major] from [School]
Character History: [Character background details]

Example:

Guy Ecsampel
Desired Team Position: Engineering Specialist
Higher Education: Masters in Applied Physics from Louisiana State University
Character History: Born in Samplesville, Louisiana... and so on.

I ran into an odd hiccup with Martin - the Gadgeteer Edge mentions needing Weird Science as both the edge and the skill...I understand the 'arcane background' edge but not the skill requirement. Hope I explained my own confusion well enough here. ;)

Ignore both requirements. Arcane Backgrounds are disallowed for this game. The Weird Science skill is an "arcane skill" functionally identical to the Spellcasting and Faith skills required to cast the spells associated with the Arcane Background (Magic) and Arcane Background (Miracles) Edges.
