    8 pm EST that is, yes? That works for me. There gonna be instructions on how we're meeting in OpenRPG (since I've only ever used that program maybe once), or we going to get that all decided upon beforehand in MSN/AIM/IRC?

    Works for me. It means I can get into the game BEFORE I have to go to work this Sunday, then every other sunday is a striaght up day off... Of course I'll have to start setting my alarm.

    Sure, I can do that, but if it goes off longer than say..four hours, I might have a problem, seeing as how I have work the next day and all that. But I doubt it'll be that bad.

    Seven for me...sounds good. And I might have that program lying around somewhere...but I also haven't ever actually used it. IRC might be simpler for everything except for maps...

    We still on for tonight @ 5:00 pm PST? (7 pm CST for me)

    My character is ready for tonight. We never did get official confirmation about which sheet we'd be using from Kolchak, though. I used VTR's. Are we using OpenRPG? What's the channel/room/port or whatever? I'll need to set it up for tonight. Kolchak, get on AIM!

    I think IRC would be easier for our first session. OpenRPG really doesn't add as much to a WoD game as it does a more grid-and-map-based one, and IRC's a bit easier to get running. And the past few games I've done with OpenRPG have had numerous connection problems from other players.

    And it still hasn't been clarified just what we're doing for the combat situation. It's just not easy to convert VtM disciplines and mechanics to the nWoD, if it's even possible at all.

    And Justice, I could be wrong about this, but if Kolchak had intended for us to use the VtR sheet, he probably would've provided a link to that instead of the VtM one.

    I'm going to be optimistic and think that Kolchak knows what hes doing for now. I'll be idling in #Bombfell and on AIM so a poke if and when we're starting would be nice. For now... back to sleep.

    He hasn't clarified anything. On the first post it says OpenRPG or IRC, but I haven't seen either selected. Despite questions on just what we're doing regarding the VtM/VtR system mishmash we haven't had anything clarified and instead got a bunch of suppositions by one or two of us.

    All I want to know just what we're doing, seeing as how we're supposed to be gaming in three hours. How you get me not believing that Kolchak knows what he's doing out of that I don't know.

    We'll do over IRC for the first session just for everyone's convenience. How many people are actually able to be there at 5 PM tonight? From the sheets I've received, the majority are fine but there are some that need work and haven't been updated and others that are only in the partial stage at this point. Who is actually got the green light and is going to participate tonight?

    I just meant that I figured Kolchack had probably already worked out alot of the conversion stuff. Like if you have a green light he was probably able to just convert it himself.

    Anyways I'm in like Flynn for tonight. Can't wait.

    I sent in my sheet a while back and you seemed to think it was okay. So...

    I assume the same location as #odam and #bombfell. I think #vampire or #berlin would probably be fine.

    Name : Zoya Peters
    Alias : Z
    Height : 6'
    Weight : 157 lbs.
    Country of Origin : Russia
    Birth : Circa 1915
    Turned : Circa 1940
    Hair : Bald
    Eyes : Green

    Zoya was taken from Russia shortly before the forming of the Soviet Union, and was raised in America for most of her life. She lived in a mostly Russian area, though, so her thick accent remains. After her turning and acclimation to her new existance, she was involved in some unpleasentness that caused her to flee to Europe shortly after the war. Soon after finding her way to Germany, she stumbled into the business of smuggling.

    She assists with moving people and supplies from East to West, and transferring contraband from West to East. Although rumors put her with the Gangrel, she's spent most of her time associating with the similarly bussiness-minded Ventrue. Her covert activities are handled during the day by a German human who takes care of most of the mundane work. She has a fairly high standing amongst mortals and Kindred, and plenty of resources to keep herself comfortable.

    Zoya usually wears suits instead of dresses, dark things complete with vests and hats.

    Name: Terry Willits
    Height: 5' 9"
    Weight: 144 pounds
    Country of Origin: America
    Born: April 12th, 1924 CE
    Turned: April 12th, 1945 CE
    Hair: Red
    Eyes: Green

    Terry was the daughter of a well to do entrepenuer and his wife an ex-model. She grew up during the depression with enough to eat but little else. At 18 she joined the Army Nurse Corp during WW2. The hospitals along the front were a battlefield all their own, between constant artillery fire and an ever-present lack of supplies. She saw young soldiers die before her eyes, American, German, Italian, French, English, and the civilians unlucky enough to be caught in the fighting.

    During a three day leave to Paris she was turned by a Malkavian. After the war her father started a line of repair shops. Her death had driven him into deep depression and he had turend to work as his narcotic, slowly tearing apart his marriage and his life. In 1955, after getting into real narcotics, he took his own life. His wife sold the repair shops to a French businesswoman, Terry's sire. Her sire gave her the businesses, though she owns them through an alias.

    Generally speaking, Terry blends in with the social scene. Her dress is always mod though never in the wild colors of the rest of her generation back in America.

    (Appearance: 5)
    (Languages: English native, French, Spanish, German, Russian)
