Fair enough.


Sorry, thought I'd have some time this weekend, but it was not to be.

I've got the basic mechanics and background down - there's a bit more fluff in my head that needs to get put down on paper.

Plus equipment. Which is mostly a plane, since that's sort of the point of the character. :) I'll try to sort that out tomorrow.

Luck: 3d6 ⇒ (1, 4, 4) = 9


Looking for 2 more players to join our group for the next chapter. The setting will move to New York in 1925.

7th edition quick start rules are fine for character creations, all characters should have some link to Jackson Elias. 6th edition rules are fine to generate skills.

Please be aware Call of Cthulu is a very adult game dealing with adult themes and situations. Also as the setting is the 1920s there is likely to be attitudes and situations which reflect the period such as racism. This will be included to some extent in the gameplay (although to a toned down degree) and is there not to condone or accept the attitudes but to add flavour to the game and to reflect the situation at the time.

Recruitment will be open until 9pm GMT this Friday. Please post submissions below and I will select the lucky two.


I'll Try:

Str: 3d6 ⇒ (3, 2, 3) = 8
Con: 3d6 ⇒ (2, 2, 6) = 10
Siz: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (5, 6) + 6 = 17
Dex: 3d6 ⇒ (2, 6, 2) = 10
App: 3d6 ⇒ (5, 2, 1) = 8
Int: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (3, 5) + 6 = 14
Pow: 3d6 ⇒ (6, 3, 5) = 14
Edu: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (6, 4) + 6 = 16
Luck: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (3, 4) + 6 = 13

A smart, erudite, corpulent investigator who does things with flair...sounds like PT Barnum, cool

20s or 30s (20-39 years of age):
Make an improvement check for
EDU.

1d100 ⇒ 59

"Come One! Come All!" Tiberius flourishes his hand in a grand wave. His voice drops to a sinister baritone. "See the mind bending, brain melting abominations from the deepest circles of hell. Those with heart conditions should not dare enter. Even describing these obscenities might cause the faint of heart to expire in fear."


Persuade and charm are pretty much the same thing, aren't they? maybe I should buy another skill with the points

Edit

Lose Persuade and add Brawl

Dot!


@littlehewy - Please feel free to create a character and we'll see if we can fit you in.


Aw gee... I'd absolutely love to, I've wanted to play this campaign for years, but if I'm being honest I'm at my limit for games. Dang it. If I'd noticed a week ago I'd have jumped, but I've just started another game. Thanks anyway - enjoy the game!


Definately interested!


This was my submission last time I tried out.
I may have to redo him though, I don't know which edition I built him in.


@Jake - that all looks fine.

@ Camris- feel free to create a character.


Thought I'd have time to finish up a character, but alas I have not.

Have fun!


Camris and Jake- welcome aboard,please post in the main gameplay section.
