    Two things:

    1) My own rules tripped me up when I looked at your Merits section, lol

    2) I would change out your computing specialty to something you do with Computing, instead of a specific programming language.

    Sorry for the delay on my end.

    I'm currently out of town without my mage book.

    Thank god for finding that char sheet generator however.

    As soon as I am back at my place I can put a sheet up.

    The various WoD wikis have a bunch of Mage resources.


    Failing that, I have a Mage book if you need anything particular.

    Hmm. Interesting. I really like your background section (also flooooo for making me look up unprepossessing :P).

    A few questions:

    1) You have no rotes listed.
    2) Do you have a standard Retainer or a Sleepwalker Retainer (see Mage)? Do you want to flesh that character out or should I?
    3) You can change your specialties to Athletics (Running) and Socialize (High Society).
    4) Don't forget, folks, you start with Mana equal to your Wisdom. (And a full Willpower allotment, although that doesn't get marked down.)

    How's Keith connected to DEM?

    huntresssig.jpg
  • CorbiusCorbius Shepard Registered User regular
    edited February 2011
    He has been investigating into DEM as part of a larger piece in Wall Street and the larger financial institutions.

    This is before the big collapse so not a lot of reporters are sniffing around at that point.

    He'll need a long term clandestine placement in the company, but presuming that, okay!

    Your attributes and skills aren't adding up right, and you've got unspent merits/arcana dots.

    Like you have 6/5/3 for attributes and 12/9/4 skills when it should be 5/4/3 and 11/7/4, and you have 3 unspent dots in merits and 1 in arcana

    edit: actually you have 4 unspent merits, high speech is free for pentacle mages

  • CorbiusCorbius Shepard Registered User regular

    Yeah I was worried my math was wrong on there somehow. I'll go change it.

    You can spend merit point to raise attributes and skills tho correct?

    Nope. It's not like bonus points from oWoD

    edit: if you're having a hard time justifying places to put merits for your character, please consider donating points to the shared sanctum.

  • CorbiusCorbius Shepard Registered User regular
    edited February 2011
    That must be why it wasnt adding up, thought that was possible.

    And sure, I can throw the extra merit dots to the shared sanctum.

    Before you do that, look at Occulted from Mage - it's pretty resonant for an investigative journalist.

    Also if you're going deep cover, consider trading out your Resource dots for Status (DEM) to represent your cover role.

    This has gone on long enough. MyDcmbr, you have until I get back from Seattle on the 9th to submit a character or you will be replaced.

    I'm a bit confused about the setting; why were the characters gathered there?

    Sorry about not posting - disappeared down the hole known as magical cards for a few days.

    As for the reason why: Longstrider's gathered you on behalf of the Consilium to discuss forming a cabal. I'll be furnishing this in-character, of course, once someone's ordered coffee.
