Death is only the Beginning
NWOD Core Book which has all the character creation rules as well as a NWOD character sheet can be found at
This is also another great resource for character creation and rules
Character Creation: please follow the human basic character creation outlined in the NWOD core book linked above in Google Docs. You will have 11/7/4 skills and 5/4/3 attributes. 3 skill specializations and 7 points in merits. However I want these to be realistic and somewhat balanced characters so I would like to request no Attributes or Skills be 5’s at character creation. For the same reasons I would like to request no 1’s in Attributes (1’s or 0’s in skills are fine). I also want for any 4’s in either Attributes of Skills to have a good reason and be discussed in your backstory. For now i would like character creation to be using core books only but we can talk about other splats as the game goes on.
Backstory: You will each be creating a character for this game that has some reason to be at Kyle/Michael/Andry’s House for a Board game night, which is the setting in which this game will begin. Other than that the scope of your character is up to you. I look forward to reading over your character sheets.
1) Answering the following questions will earn you 2 extra points that can be spent in background merits or skill point based on your characters back-story. They may not be used to raise a merit or skill above 2(00) . I want to encourage everyone to really think about the character you are playing, what drives them, what their goals are etc before they plunge into the dark world of the supernatural.
Questions note if your playing yourself of course you can not answer certain questions or choose to not share those with the storytellers. I want a good faith effort in answering them but I don’t need to know your truest self of darkest secrets. For people making up their character I do require a nearly full set of answers.
2) Playing as yourself will entitle you to another 2 extra points that can be spent in background merits or skill point based on your characters back-story. They may not be used to raise a merit or skill above 2(00). I want to use this to encourage people to choose this option but from what I’ve seen so far people are already set for or against this idea….whatever.. bonus points :)
Since the conversion to a Supernatural will likely be Hunters or Mages here are these to look at so you can be familiar when the conversion comes up.
For Hunter The vigil
For Mage the Awakening
