nWoD Mortals in Boston, need 1-2
Long Cold Winter - Forum
World of Darkness
Estimated Members Requested: 2
Looking for 1-2 people to join 4 that are still working on their characters. This will be a Hunter game, but I find the organizations to be really quite silly, and actually haven't got much love for any of the nWoD fluff at all. As such, you can expect that knowledge of nWoD fluff won't really help you, and may even hinder you with expectations. I'll be cleaving closer to oWoD fluff, but you don't need to know anything about it to succeed in this game.
This game will take place in Boston, MA, with a theme of Ghosts of the Past. The already recruited players are Kossil, Nighteyes5678, estlin, and McSherrie. They have created, respectively:
28 year old female archaeology student who can't seem to ever leave college
26 year old male parkour freak / contractor with the BPD
37 year old male art history professor with a drinking problem
23 year old female cop lusting after a spot on SWAT
The forum is, as yet, sparse because I've been giving them plenty of time to work their concepts out, but also because you don't need much for the setting. As far as your characters are concerned, there is no alternate history in play. The game will start
on or near June 1, 2011. You can use the internet to get information about and maps of the Greater Boston area.
Characters will run through Preludes. That is, when you write up your character, s/he should not have had any contact whatsoever with anything remotely not explainable. People s/he knows will not have connections to anything in the darkness, as far as your character knows. Whether one or more of his/her contacts does have those kinds of connection or that kind of knowledge is up to me, not you. This does not bar you from having dots in Occult prior to game start, but the information from that may or may not be useful. You'll have a sort of 'penalty', in that I'll do a second roll when you succeed on Occult which will determine if you get real information or fake stuff.
Important: This game will be written in third person past tense.
Minimum age 18.
Use the Core book only. For now.
I recommend some familiarity with some kind of fighting skill to start. Your character need not be a black belt, a sharpshooter, or any other sort of combat expert, but you should at least know which end of the gun shoots the bullets, and/or how to get out of a grapple situation. Being more competent is acceptable, just not required.
A completed sheet is not required. Have some thoughts about areas of skill, but there's no need to figure out dots for anything at this point.
I prefer biographical information as bullet points, not paragraphs.
Include a list of the
A writing sample is required, spoilered, and it should be a vignette starring your character in a routine, daily life sort of situation.

"Once upon a time, there was a young woman named Isabella who captured the heart of her King. They married and their first child was an adorable little girl, Amelie. Isabella had an older sister, though, one who was a witch and hated her sister for becoming Queen. In the dark of night, the witch stole into the nursery and placed a curse on the baby. On her tenth birthday, long after her parents grew to love her and cherish her, she would fall into a deep, dreamless sleep, never to awaken-"
