Character Creation

Character creation is explained in detail on pages 34 and 35 of the core rulebook, World of Darkness. For the first session, we’re playing as mortals, so the extra rules from Mage: the Awakening and its supplements aren’t necessary for initial creation. However, feel free to reference these books when making your mortal character. The Character Creation page specifically lists off questions / issues you should address when developing your character and background.

House Rules

In the event we need to clarify a rule, or modify one, it’ll be explained here.

h2/ Table Rules

As we discover a need to control behavior around the table, this’ll be where such rules get a home.
