feel free to post character creation questions here. you can wait on gear for your characters until after character creation is complete. i will help there to be sure everyone has the stuff they need.

Hi folks!

I understand there's a veteran doctor from the Great War... I'd applied with Dr. Mulherin a retired US Army Cavalry surgeon from the Indian Wars, now a GP. Want to have share a practice in our rural town? (Maybe we're the vets, too, what with horses being so common in both those wars...)

Hey, guys. Looking forward to gaming with you all. I've been playing CoC since . . . a long time ago. The current quick start rules are here:

https://www.chaosium.com/cthulhu-quickstart/

It's free download from Chaosium so no foul against the RPOL rules.

Basically, you have 8 Primary Characteristics:

STR
CON
POW
DEX
APP
SIZ
INT
EDU

Allocate the following values where you like among them:
40
50
50
50
60
60
70
80

A handful of secondary characteristics are extracted from the values you allocate. As character creation systems go it's fairly simple. I joined a RuneQuest game here a couple of months back (for nostalgia's sake) and man that has become a hugely top-heavy system!

I'm playing a political campaign manager for our next great governor, Thomas William Hardwick! [OOC: He won the primary handily and ran unopposed in November 1922, back when the south was a guaranteed Democratic stronghold.]

Re: Out of Character chat
The GM seems to be running something different from what you posted, has us rolling dice for all stats.

And true to form, the dice roller hates me.

Re: Out of Character chat
The dice roller can be annoying. Have some decent ones but also a couple of not so decent ones.

I, too, am learning the system.

WWI AEF Air Service Officer. Lots of crazy vets lol
