    Would people please try out this format that the other PCs in my other game are using? Makes it really easy for me to view your sheet. Here's an example: http://forum.theonyxpath.com/forum/g...838#post922838

    Also, try and find a picture to represent your character too!

        I think a literal computer spirit works better than a Seraph, considering supernal entities have no support anymore.

        Edit: and consider Professional Training, it give Contacts 2 at the start and then 9-again on two Skills, in your case Computer and Science.

        What's the availiability of an ATV?

          I am working on the new format. I don't know how to do spoilers so it involves a lot of scrolling, I am sorry about that. If anyone can tell me how to do spoilers, I appreciate it if you would tell me. The sheet is up where the background was.

          Edit: I figured it out.

            I meant to ask if a Resources 3 purchase can buy one.

              Thanks Tambov, I'll take a look. And I quoted a post with the format in it Wtay. Just a case of changing the entered information with that of your own character.

                History




                Background
                Phillip Pittman was always fascinated by the unknown. He certainly was more fascinated by things that go bump in the night than by his job as a dietician. His determination to capture a cryptid (on camera or otherwise) pushed him to comb forests around the supposed sightings with his drinking buddies.

                Awakening
                On one of his searches, he got lost in the woods. High from deprivation, he went further on the trail. Somewhere along the way, the trees began to grow to gigantic size. Finally, he encountered an impressive creature (details tbd) and stalked it. Even as it eluded his grasp, he Awakened, beholding the majesty of the Primal Wilds. (Could make the hunt successful, with a primitive spear)

                Personality
                Curious, somewhat reckless, enthusiastic about the occult.

                Daily Life
                Phil works as a junior dietician (tbd if in Lakewood or Denver proper). Every other weekend, he and a couple of friends go into a bar, get a couple of beers, and go to the mountains looking for Bigfoot and other cryptids.

                      Long-term: Small life, like bacteria, is purged. Increasingly bigger life begins to weaken or leave the area, first no insects, then no vermin. Eventually no stray animals remain in the place

                      Immediate: Aseptic: everything seems artificially clean and quiet and the smell of disinfectant permeates the ambience

                      Signature: Places and objects seems like recently disinfected, like the usual procedure with medical tools

                      Tilt: +1 Stamina

                      Aspirations
                      - Contact the buhddist comunity of Denver
                      - Learn about alternative medicine (Acupuncture, Reiki, etc...)
                      - Develop his magical persona (Long Term)

                      Obsession
                      Understand the process of death and birth from a magical viewpoint (when does soul set in, when does it leave, can the process be averted, manipulated, replicated?)



                      History


                      Background
                      Born the only son of a traditional bostonian couple that had suffered a couple of abortions, Marvin didn't seem long for this world. Sickly and weak since birth, the child managed to survive the first day of his life against all odds. Then he lived for a week. Then a month. Whether it was little Marvin's determination, the obsesive love of his parents, or something stranger still, the fact is that Marvin succeeded where his stillborn brothers couldn't and managed to grow up to became a child, then a teenager and finally a young adult that was the pride of his parents.

                      Although his health was always precarious at best, or maybe as sort of strange compesation of nature, Marvin demonstrated from an early age a vivacious ingenuity and a sharp intellect. Good natured, he decided to use his prodigious faculties to help those like him and so, with the blessing of his parents, he studied to became a doctor. His analitical mind and strong memory served him well and he graduated as the first of his promotion.

                      Now Marvin is growing old, his parents died not a couple of years ago and he visits their tomb and that of his stillborn brothers every week. Married to one of his younger colleages and co-workers at the hospital where he used to work they still have no child of their own. On one hand the job at the university consumes a lot of time, and Marvin secretely fears that he may be incapable of siring healthy children as happened to his parents. He doesn't want to visit more small tombs the weekends.

                      Awakening
                      Marvin Awakened only recently, barely a couple of years ago, during the last moments of his parents life. Loosing that emotional anchor made somenthing snap inside the mature doctor's soul which went through Stygia wraped up in the appearance of a gargantuan and barren hospital. His rational mind and sort of materialistic view of life took a 180ยบ turn when he not only could no longer doubt the existence of souls and and an afterlife beyond the physical death of the body, but he could see prove of of it every single second. He left Boston with his wife for a change of scene, he started to teach at the Denver medical school, while his wife worked at the children's hospital, being one of the best maternity experts in the state.

                      Personality
                      Calm, cold and profesionally detached while at work, Marvin is warm and welcoming around his close ones. Despite not having children, or perhaps due to that, he is quite paternal with younger men and women, caring about their life and achievements. Back in Boston he used to have a close relationship with one of his patients that acted as a sort of foster son. He misses that kind of conection dearly. His great support is his wife, the love of his life and also one of the people that he most respects, both as a person as as a doctor. He has no qualms in pointing out she is the smartests and more talented of the couple, though you could hear her saying the same about him. They complement each other, despite their differences.

                      Daily Life
                      Marvin and his wife, Melissa, decided to leave their native Boston, after his parents passed away. They work every day hand in hand to help all the people in the community, each in their respective field. Him preparing a new generation of medical prodigies, she helping bringing new life into this world. Marvin has started to do a kind of side job, though, more related to his newfound vision of the world. He is the man any supernatural can go for help of a medical nature, be it the diagnosis of an eldritch disease or the miraculous healing of griveous injuries of questionable origin.

                        Yes, I would still like to go with that if that's ok.

                        Thanks for everyone for entering character info. I'm prioritizing review of characters for my original game, as I've been advertising for it longer, but I will try to review these over the next few days as well.

                          Subscribed to see how Bardo does in this chronicle. I always pictured him a lot differently than what his picture shows.

                            The original Bardo (now Witch Doctor) was indeed quite different looking. I sneaked a reference to Phoenix in the History section, in case crossover hapens)

                              I see. I actually changed Phoenix's hometown to Louisville, Kentucky. But, I'll change it to Boston just for crossover possibilities. Plus, it's a mage city, so it fits well with his backstory and gives him a reason to go there in any future chronicles.

                                Note that maybe none of them were mages at the time they met this time around.
