  • While not a VtR player, I can say that one of the big changes from DnD to CoD is that the former focuses on the triumphant use of force (magical or physical). CoD players can gain beats (and therefore experience) by accepting failures and complications that make the narrative more interesting, more dramatic. DnD tends to be tactical - you need to figure out which spells you should use to buff the fighters, and take out the traps or nuke the hordes. CoD has some of that, but there's a lot more strategy: who can you trust? Can you persuade your enemies to attack each other? How much of the...

    This is fun!
    • Food truck owner who works late nights feeding drunks leaving bars around closing time. She's seen a few things and keeps the shotgun under the counter. She always has a full gas tank.
    • Cleaner and authenticator of anthropological artifacts at a museum. Prefers to work alone at night since people are so annoying. Hates having to interact with the public.

    Are you looking for NPC's or possible PC's? How much detail? Off the top of my head:
    • Syrian refugee who was a doctor before he fled the civil war. He now works the night shift as an EMT.
    • Ex-boxer who was barred due to fight fixing. He works as a chauffeur and occasional bodyguard.
    • Anthropology student doing field work on obscure Protestant farming cults.
    • Professional magician who debunks charlatan psychics.
    • Con-man hiding out from heavy weights on the East Coast who think that he owes them $2.5 million.
    • Elderly priest who is the only practicing exorcist for the entire Midwest.
    • Old

  • Off topic: I read your above post too quickly and assumed that it was about Dexter's Lab, the cartoon. This provided a very interesting take on his lab as a Lair....
