  • Kicking the tires of 2E

    I'd like to try a quick little experiment; myself and a couple others create a 2E Sin-Eater each and then we make a krewe out of them.

    Nothing fancy, no house rules; just following the guidelines in the book.

    Does anyone want to volunteer?

    I'm down. And I'm thinking my Geist will be someone who died on the Titanic.

        I'm game. Been wanting to try out the character creation rules.

          And that is more than enough for this test run! Thank you.

          Since this is not intended for an actual game, we don't need to conform our concepts to a premise (unless we want). Bad news; we don't have a starting premise. So the first hurdle will be character concepts. (I look forward to getting to the Geist creation section to see how Second Chances defines the Titanic friend).

          So, who were our actors before they died? How did they die and how did it change them?
          Strictly speaking, this is also where we should pick our Aspirations (but not our Burden one; wrath upon your murderer comes later if you are Vengeful). While I have a tendancy to refine what these are as I go along the process, we should come up with at least one each, right?

            Yeah, we probably should.

              I think I'll recycle a rejected idea from 1st edition to see how far we can stretch the system...less research though. 😒
              ______

              Name: Laura Dunaway
              Concept: Dark Horse Valedictorian
              Party Girl/Slasher Victim turned overarchiever.

              ST Aspiration: Make that trip up to Sarah.
              ST Aspiration: Make up my History final.
              LT Aspiration: Stop the Smilemaker* from hurting more people.


              ...

              Yeah, it is a little out there. I did say it was a rejected concept. Basically it is that friend in a slasher flim who convinces the Final Girl to go out in the woods for a weekend getaway/camping trip/unsupervised party and then gets killed. This one came back.

              *stand in name for the serial killer/Slasher; because he gives the victim's a second smile.

                I'm am intrigued to see this experiment play out. Like a live CC session example.

                        I can't speak for everyone, but that is not my intent.

                        Well we have enough concepts now, that I think we can move on. The next step is boring and by the numbers. Attribute time, choose your catagories and place your dots.

                        I'll do mine later today. Got work to do.

                          Sorry I'm late, had something else I needed to do. Guess I'll hit two steps in one post.

                          • Put a ghost in her debt
                          • Acquire a necromancer's journals (A specific necromancer, she hasn't just got a craving.)
                          • Found her own Krewe
                          Geist: The Devil Dog (though she is known to call him "Pooky.")

                          Attributes

                              I'm sorry for being late; I've had technical difficulties.
                              Anyway, here it is.

                              Okay, do we want to move on to Step Three (Skills)? The numbers are not complicated. The fun stuff happens after.
