    Darn, I was hoping for a more classical steampunk, with tophats.
    But I can work with this.

    Oh was also thinking about adding the Healing attribute. just one lvl to show off the Spark-est nature of the guy. Basically, he can stitch something back on, and it will work just like normal.
    For no logical reason.
    Or should that be its own attribute? We could call it Stitch Up, or Frankenstein.
    EDIT: Just a thought, what attribute/skill best works like this?

    Know what.
    Harrison's last name is now Hollowick.
    Doctor Harrison Hollowick. Sounds more original.

    So, I can't get the vampire thing to work out in my mind since the setting looks more medieval. (I was aiming for gentleman thief vampire) And we already have a Sherlock Holmes inspired char. So, I had to scratch that. Probably a little bit too ambitious.

    So Vin, how about this:

    Concept: Cat-Thief
    Notes: "Nekojin" Template? What are cat/beast hybrids in the 'Old Kingdoms?' Girl-Genius inspired race created by mad scientists that eventually got free and propagated like well, cats. Or something more Dracula-esque horror/elder-magic like a race of abyss denizens that now inhabit the world above? If second option, could I have shapeshifting into full-cat cat-boy with devilish personality? If first option, maybe I can play up the more instinctive part of cat

    Stats (template-less, provisional)
    Body 5
    Mind 5
    Soul 4

    I suppose I'll just post what I have so far.

    __________


    Johan Edelbart is basically the result of a mad scientist stitching together a bunch of corpses, stuffing enough seemingly random junk into the mess and then letting it all get hit by lightining to create a Frankenstein knock-off.
    The mad scientist soon died, as they are wont to do, at the hands of an angry mob of villagers, while Johan escaped.
    And since even an abomination against nature needs to eat and there were preciously few career options for gigantic, hooded strangers without any appreciable skills or crafts, beyond being freakishly huge and strong, he soon became a bounty hunter/armed guard for hire/adventurer/mercenary/whatever else you may call it.

    There are a few ways to go about it- Not too sure about having tribal catpeople roaming about, but if you want a catgirl, you can go ahead and have the character be the experimental construct of some mad scientist...

    [Notices Nicknumbers' write in]

    ... Yeah, that would probably be one way to do it. Or you could do the Jaegermonster thing too, I guess.

    Depending on how much you want to be Holmes, you lack a disguise skill.

    Otherwise you might want to look into getting yourself some gadgets or something.

    No idea.
    Just try to think of some utility stuff that fits your character and then look into how to get it to work with this system.
    Even some rather specialized equipment, you normally leave at home, or some backup weapons or tools would be fine.

    Added Swarm and a few other skills, abilities along with some fluff.
    My thought is Harrison learned the spell just to see if it could work.
    It did. Unpleasant feeling however, being torn apart form the inside out into crows are all you, all one mind with 330 eyes, bloody horrid headache after. So he really doesn't use it that often.

    Comments?

    So, let's see... I think I've got it. Need help with the languages skill though, since I don't know which languages are spoken. What does the wonderful GM think?



    Felix happened when the resident mad genius decided to study alternate forms of lycantropy. Well, Felix was his name before, and he dislikes Subject Nº25. The result was what was essentially a much smarter cat in human proportions. His first few years weren't very happy, stuck inside a cage and 'tested', and as soon as he got a chance he killed his maker and fled into the world.
    Thieving started as a way to live by but soon evolved into the thrill of the hunt. Felix is after all a feral cat, a predator, and the prey in the human world are riches and glittering objects.

    Just had a thought.
    The whole groups home base may be Hollowick Manor.
    I'm the guy who might be bank rolling everything.
    That cat better not steal anything.
    Trust me, the good doctor will notice.

    Better yet, the doctor did notice the cat. And then proceeded to catch him. Now the cat owes the doctor, or they have a bet going, or the doctor just supplies the cat with a roof, warm milk, tender meat and catnip. Of course, the cat will deny it.

    "Edelbart, stop fidgeting, Its only an arm. What? Why does it matter it belonged to a woman, it's the only one that fits. No, I cannot 'find you a better one' It's the only one I've on hand. Pun unintended. Why? Because if I took the time to find you one that was the right size, with minimal decomposition, the arm that was once attached to your shoulder now would be not but decomposed ooze and bone. Just trust me on this, you massive idiot. Keeping you working is of more import then clinging to your illusion of masculinity. I know from your creators notes that your testicles belonged to a hermaphrodite. Yes, yes I'll keep it between us."

    Hmm, I just noticed my Combat Technique is actually 3 (-6p) instead of 2 (-4p) since I have three techniques marked down, and so I actually spent 402 points.
    I like those techniques so I'm going to lower my Skil: Architecture from 4 (-4p) to 2 (-2p), to even it out.

    A highly renowned student at *insert nearby* university. Known for her track and field accomplishments and her perfect singing voice. At a young age she fell victim to a mad Spark's experiments which left her with a terrible burden and knowledge of the underworld she wishes she could forget. But it has also given her the tool she uses to protect those she cares about the most. A powered armor that she currently uses to fight off anything that might threaten that which is most dear to her, Elena Mirai, a fellow student at the university and the person that brings sunshine to her life. Unfortunately, as is the case with most Sparks, madness runs closely with genius, and to use her armor she is forced to sing while it is in use, causing her great pain as it forms through her skin, something she has learned to power through.

    Well, yeah. But really, I already have Wanted, and it's not like Felix socializes with the common people. At most he spends time bragging (displaying his prey) or gambling at seedy places (playing with his prey), where Isms don't matter that much.

    Just a thought, none of our Characters seem to fit a medieval era, perhaps a steampunk Renaissance?

    this isnt a Completed page but something to show what I am planning... Thinking about adding in a Companion Nightmare(Horse) for my remaining Points Summoning it from the Pocket Dimension...
