    I got the stats done. Not the story though. But I can, somewhat compensate with Dawn too.

    Hm, I might be able to make mine into Eclipse without changing too much as well.

    It is either Larceny supernal, which is the main point or probably MA. I want to combo Void Style and Steel Devil. So Dawn works too for me.

    Don't worry too much about having same Caste.

    And yes, you can skip Brawl dot.

    Hmmm.
    Actually, since my idea is supposed to be a conman, I think Eclipse would suit it better.
    (and as usual, one specific interest over in the Larceny charms)

    Do you mean this? Fate-Shifting Solar Arete? A charm that can boost any roll, even sorcerous working?

    Nights probably get Socialize as a Caste option specifically so that 'conman' is a valid Night archetype.

    Not sure what you mean. But ya, Night is valid and if it does not work, I'll switch over. My concept is workable even as an Eclipse.

    Nah, I'm personally not interested in Craft - I prefer using Sorcerous Workings to lay down buffs and all.
    Although...I like Dual Magnus Prana, because it's hilarious XD

    Fuck it, might as well take Crafter/Sorcerer. I can use Sorcery as my offense and defense, anyways. Maybe Stealth to skulk around, so that I don't get discovered :p

    Here is preferable, GDoc or pastebin is fine.

    Don't go overboard, you'll spend most of your time on ship.


    Also, please put short description what your charm does and the page of that charm description. Makes my workload lighter.

    On a side note, like I mentioned to theweepingman in IRC, Chiyoko's pretty much exclusively interested in girls as far as romance goes. :p

    Neat. I'll get her sheet up here... sometime tomorrow.

    Also theweepingman how will you be handling Solar Xp? if one of us qualify for it will all of us get it or is it every man for himself? Because if we are stuck on a boat then a lot of us will not be able to fulfill the conditions for some of them.

    Huh, I could make a catgirl with the Claw, Tail and Enhanced Sense Merits.

    But I already have my picture of her, so it'll have to be another time.

    Ok my Dawn is more or less complete. I am Basing him on Himura Kenshin from Samurai X. Looks like Madara and his Iconic Anima is Madara's Susanoo.

    Just need to do the merits.

    Also theweepingman the Styles Point into the Void and Steel Devil are compatible so long as I dual wield a pair of reaper Daiklaves.

    I want to ask if I need to purchase two separate artifact ratings and get two sets of evocations/Mote commitments or can i just buy it once and Fluff Spring Razor as a pair of Daiklaves and use only 5 Commitment and one set of evocations?

    ... theweepingman, is Volcano Cutter ok? Basically, that was the thing enshrined on the isle that Emerald Blossom (changed the name slightly) entered without permission, which she then took (can't let a nice blade be alone like that, right?).

    Can take one of the lower-dot weapons instead if needed, but I'm amused by the image of the short Emerald Blossom wielding a big weapon like that. And the other blades didn't feel like they suited her, and I want a melee weapon for her.

    I'll allow it, provided you use Short Daiklave base stat.

    ...and I was going to make Chiyoko Supernal Presense.

    Eh, I'll write it up. There's enough variety in the Presence Charmset that she can take her Charms in a different direction to yours- in particular, Chiyoko is much more focused on being inspiring.

    Like Nekraa, I'll get her backstory written up in a bit, as well as expanding on Shimazu.
