    Me! Mememe!

    I don't really know what kind of character I'd play, though. Are we including fanlines? Specifically, Genius? Also, on a scale of one to ordinary WoD, how serious will this game be?

      ​no fanlines until the official lines have players so maybe make a official line character first, but keep the genius in reserve. One a scale of one to WoD I say 4-5 depending on the situation. There will be some goofy teen movie stuff mixed in with the serious fantasy and horror.

        OK, that's fine.

        I was just wondering. In that case, I think I'll probably have a Mage, a Mastigos with a focus on Mind who Awakened in a Mystery Play focused on the myth of Achilles, whose name he took as his Shadow Name. He's a sports-person - pretty much the stereotypical jock, if not quite as dickish, and
        very driven when he wants to do something - but following his Awakening he's been feeling as though there's something - someone - missing, and has been withdrawing a little, if not from the sport (I'm not sure what sport, precisely. Track, maybe?) then from the peer-group around it. He's also having a bit of a sexuality crisis, having started noticing boys as well.

        Does that sound OK? I'm not sure of what his relationship to the Orders would be, though. I was thinking of having his first Obsession be something like 'Who is the Spear-Carrier' or similar, referencing a figure which recurred throughout his Mystery Play, serving in the roles of friend, supporter and lover at various point. I'm not sure how the fallout of his Mystery Play would work, though, and what he actually did in 'real life'.

        And yes, I'll admit that I'm channeling The Song of Achilles for this.

          I am thinking that maybe Orders and other social splats don't come into play until later in the chronicle. at the start the PCs wont know about the orders, tribes, and such, let the horror of being a confused teenager with no one who understands flow for a few sessions before letting the social splats into play. But I am al And your PC sounds great to me.

            I am interested, but it depends on the format and timing. What kind of game would this be?

              That makes sense. Is the Obsession OK? It's my first time making a 2e Mage and I'm still a little shaky on how Obsessions work. I get that they're like Aspirations but for Arcane Beats, but I'm not entirely sure what they should be.

              EDIT: ElvesofZion raises a good point. I was too caught up in the idea.

                .
                ​Either Skype, DIscord or Play by post. I am open to any of those. Timing is probably going to be Friday nights due to my class schedule

                  from the mage core book

                  Obsessions are just like long-term Aspirations, except they relate
                  specifically to a mage’s compulsion to explore the mystical in her life.
                  They could be goals to learn or research specific things. They could
                  be player goals for the character to encounter certain strangeness in
                  the world. They could be goals to use magic in new or extreme ways

                  ​so looking into a figure from your mystery play should be fine.

                    I could do Play By Post for sure, for something more active, I could probably do Friday's after like 7PM PST.

                      Ah. That... might be awkward. What time on Friday night? I'd be fine with any of those methods, though, although Discord would probably be marginally easier.

                          Earlier would probably be better, if we're doing ti immediately. I have another RPG club on Friday evenings from 8-10. I'm fine with Play-By-Post, though.

                              Sounds good.

                              ​So, ElvesofZion , any character ideas?

                              Come to think of it, re: the high school will you be designing it, young man, or will it be more of a kind of collaborative thing?
