Character Creation

1. As the GM, I have the right to approve or disapprove of a character concept, skill, or artifact. That's just the way it is. I'm pretty easy going about most stuff, but there are just some things that you will actually have to role play your way through rather than relying on a sheet that says you can or can't.

2. I may request that you right a short backstory justifying a certain skill or the creation or finding of a certain artifact - especially if I feel it is a particularly powerful skill or item.

3. Unless your PC is a trump artist, you must take a power that allows you a way to travel across shadow rather than relying on trumps alone. If none of the currently available powers seem appropriate for your character concept, come up with a different power that allows for cross-shadow travel and discuss it with me. I can guarantee you right now that no new powers that grant this ability will be brought on board for less than 20 points, so if you want to go this route, put some effort into fleshing out the power so you don't end up wasting points. If you're not a big fan of Pattern or Logrus, don't forget to check out the various magicks and other powers available as taking some of them will allow you to meet this requirement.

4. Characters will be worth 150 points. Two questionnaires will be made available to you. These questionnaires are optional and worth an additional three points a piece. Up to four additional points will be awarded for backstories that are submitted prior to game start.

5. Attributes will be split into four categories: Strength, Psyche, Warfare, and Endurance. Selling down to Chaosian levels will gain you three additional points, to human level six additional points, and to subhuman level (if you dare) will gain you ten additional points.

6. There will be no buying of allies. You have to make them the old fashioned way - earn them.

7. Your character must have at least one Amberite parent.

8. As far as artifacts and creatures go - go for it! Send me your ideas and I'll give you a point value for them.

9. The game has a partial powers component to it - so if you really want the ability to shape shift yourself a poisonous tail that can grab people and throw them down - but don't want to pay the points for any other shape shifting abilities - pm me and we can discuss how many points your tail is worth…
