This game will cover the three chronicles campaigns, with few stops or detour.

The characters will have to be changed from one scenario group to the next. Old characters will move on and eventualy die, becoming icons of the present and the past. They will leave legacies for your next character to uphold or names to clean. Sometime both.

I do not like player versus player, so I won't foster this kind of game, but you might get faction or personal missions. Also, I won't allow Heretics.

To keep the legacies alive from one character to another, as there might be anything from 50 years to 1000 from one campaign to another, I'm asking players to create a lineage that their successive character will inherit from. However you define your lineage is how people who recognize your character will expect him to behave and the model against which they will be judged. (this can usually be either a lifestyle, education or thievery roll)

As an example, someone from a known amorous lineage will be expected to hit on anyone with a pulse. Girls knowing this reputation might try to shun him or fawn over the playboy they think he is. Some people will always interpret his words in the worst way to prove he is nothing but the dog his grand father was !
In this example, the descendant of this lineage can try to get away from the reputation of their family or embrace it fully. And, quite importantly, only those who have a reason to know about those background might react. (A store clerk won't know that your family favourite past time is mass melee, unless your are doing it on TV, are making the news regularly or you already told him)

The RTJ will have to specify a lineage concept and a short background for the first character.

The lineage description will include a general reputation, some inkling on their activities and a prominent ancestor. All of this can be a short paragraph.
Lineage in this game are generally blood lines, but they can also be any group of people that has a reason to stay coherent through the centuries (some sect or club, a military unit,...) though those will have to be a little more detailed than a family. The ancestor can be your first character. You can also include a description of the lineage relationships with any group that cross your mind. If you have some idea about what you see in the future of the lineage (will they follow in Cybertronic, will they try to get back to earth, will they give their third sons to the Brotherhood after the first War,... ?) don't hesitate to include it ! And don't forget your characters can later betray their lineage, that's not a problem. Some ancestor between the first and the second dark legion war can have defected from Capitol to Mishima - or may have been exfiltered against his will.

The character will be built using Modiphius character generator (http://mc3.modiphiusapps.hosti...age/CharacterCreator), with the 12 point option (Mc manual P. 35). You will provide details about the choices that you made and the event that happened. As the game start, the character will be a member of the Luna Police Department, either as a freelancer or on lease from his corporation. The era of play will be the first Dark Legion War, I'm allowing career extensions and we will use ageing rules. At that point there is no Brotherhood nor Cybertronics and I'll allow only one player from White Star at first (I advise interested player to have another concept ready). Later players will be able to join directly as White Star, Brotherhood or Cybertronics.

The characters that comes after can get away from the lineage, but they will inherit from it nonetheless.

Please, at least try to fulfill the RTJ. I'm asking for something a bit more specific than a paragraph with half a character concept. I'm not waiting for a novel but two paragraph with the specified content are a minimum.
