Making Characters

This list is no longer being updated. The up-to-date list is at Dreamwidth.

Like many others, but mostly prompted by innocent_man, I'm going to make a character for every roleplaying game that I own. As a preparatory measure, I'm going to use this post as a definitive list of what's to come. So far the list is incomplete as I'm compiling it from memory.

At this point the list isn't including PDFs that I haven't seen fit to print, because then I'd never fucking finish. I may revise that as time goes on so that I can include interesting games that I've not got a hardcopy of. Also, where I own multiple editions of a game, I'm only using the edition that I'm most comfortable with—in the case of the Old World of Darkness, that's the latest edition released. Where the edition isn't the latest that I'm aware of or may cause confusion (D&D, I'm looking at you), I'll stick it after the game name.

The list will grow as I go through my bookshelves when I get home. At present, it's not in any kind of order. Suggestions for the first few would be appreciated. Once I start, I'll link to completed characters in this post.

Suggestions? As in what we'd like to see first?

Aeternal Legends; Changeling: the Lost; Promethean: the Created; Engel; HoL; Hunter: the Vigil; Scion: Hero; Unknown Armies; In Nomine; Cybergeneration; Trinity

That should give ya a start if you want some sort of organization.
Jul. 13th, 2008 12:40 am (UTC)
Two down so far, and more to come. :)
Jul. 26th, 2008 12:24 am (UTC)
Changeling comes after Nobilis (so it'll be #16). Engel requires me dealing with a crappy generic d20 implementation, so it'll probably wait a while. Hunter requires an okay from Marketing. Scion is a possible for the near future, as is In Nomine. All the others are done.

Let me know when you're going to tackle your nightmare game and I'll do The Shadow Project on the same day. Solidarity and all.
Jul. 8th, 2008 10:57 pm (UTC)
(Character gen does take ages though).
Jul. 13th, 2008 12:41 am (UTC)
Maybe tomorrow. Anything else you want me to do?
Jul. 26th, 2008 12:25 am (UTC)
Any other games you want covered?
Jul. 23rd, 2008 05:18 am (UTC)
Nobilis! Maddeningly open-ended, to be sure.
Jul. 25th, 2008 04:39 pm (UTC)
I want to get some of the White Wolf titles done, so Trinity tonight (#14), followed by Nobilis (#15).
Jul. 25th, 2008 06:13 pm (UTC)
Jul. 26th, 2008 12:22 am (UTC)
Any others you want to add to the queue?
Jul. 26th, 2008 07:08 pm (UTC)
Fading Suns? It seems like good times, setting-wise.
Jul. 26th, 2008 07:09 pm (UTC)
Seconding Hunter, if marketing needs a gauge of bloggy demand.
Oct. 1st, 2008 02:38 am (UTC)
I would like to see a Dark Ages: Mage character.
Sep. 5th, 2009 03:12 pm (UTC)
You gotta update this list. :)
Sep. 5th, 2009 05:12 pm (UTC)
Huh. Dreamwidth cross-editing only works on entries crossposted from DW. Didn't realise that.

This list's been updated.
