How to create a character....
There are two ways of doing this........
A) If you own your own rule
set then you can construct a character on your own. This character has to
be cleared by me before we play. No superhumans will be allowed and I will
take the liberty to change some values and details, if I feel it is necessary.
Your character is totally inexperienced when it comes to
the Cthulhu mythos, so your character have not read any tomes and have no
B) Give me a background and
I will do the rest. If you choose this option then I want to have an answer
on the following questions:
1) Do you want o play a male or female
2) Name and Age: This will affect the experience of the character and which skill will be available for him/her.
3) Colleges and Degrees: Is the Character highly educated in formal schools or a person who has gone through "the school of life"?
4) Profession or Title/social status: What's the formal title of character's occupation or social status? ( for example Professor, Doctor, Baron, Count ect.)
No ideas for suitable profession....check this list out!
5) Birthplace/ nationality
6) Appearance : Describe the physical appearance of the character.
7) Additional background: Give me a short background description. What has this character done in his life before he appeared in this adventure.
The more details you give the more inspired will I be, which could be important when I fill in the blanks in the Character formula.
