Character Creation

You can download a character sheet here.

Character Creation is as follows:

Attributes: in addition to the free dot you get 7/5/3 or 5/5/5
Abilities: 13/9/5 or 9/9/9
5 background points, with restrictions listed below. Available are: Allies, Ancestors, Contacts, Kinfolk, Mentor, Pure Breed, Resources, and Rites. Rites should be basic (level 1 or 2) and be in keeping with your auspice.
Pools listed below for each of you.
Gifts: one each from your breed, auspice, and tribe. Select from the lists I provide.
Freebie points: 15, with the following cost breakdown: Attribute for 5, Ability for 2, Background for 1, Rage or Willpower for 1, Gnosis for 2, Gift for 7 (any Rank 1 Gifts, subject to approval)
I do not encourage Merits and Flaws, but we can talk.

No one can start with fetishes, Totem, or renown, since you are starting the game a few hours from gaining adulthood.

The Ancestors background is encouraged, but none of you can contact the old pack through it.

NOTE: This story will be taking place mostly in the Umbra, so inflated pools and spirit gifts are reccomended.
