Right chaps here we go, lots of you rolled up your characters on Monday, so we will have the first intro adventure starting next week. due to numbers I will need to split up the parties, and run one each other week, till we get the intro out of the way. Then we will have a better idea who is up for the long haul so to speak for the campaign...

We have set the characters in 1920's London and here is our motley crew so far...

(Sam) Sebastian Sinistair, 61, Professor

(Noah) Francesca Enstein, 26, Doctor (very good looking  :cool3:)

(Mike B) Captain Wyatt Power, 26, Soldier (USA)

(Tom L) Rupert Everard, 25, Journalist

(Mike E) ...................., 25, Clerk

(JD) ......................., 44, Ex Clergyman , Twin Brother to Randy (see below)

(Jack) Randolph Charles Hammerman ..............., 44, Police Detective

Will all players who have not given me their character sheets, post here with the details (as above), and all players who have not yet given their characters names, please post here as well..

Also feel free to use this thread to write down a brief back story to your character, what they do for a living, their likes, their hates, the more the merrier..

Also please note, that I will be giving all the characters a little present before we start playing, being it a quirk, a phobia, a guilty secret or something much much worse..... :cool3:

Rupert James George Everard - journalist - 25

He lives in a small flat above the Punch and Judy pub on fleet street and works for the Daily Herald.  He is from a rich background, his family are landowning aristocracy in North England, but he is a third son and when he shunned the opportunity of a commission in the army during the war (a common occurrence amongst the landowning aristocracy), choosing instead a career in journalism, he was disowned and completely cut off.  He always plays down the richness of his family to his friends, who get the impression they are very powerful and slightly sinister. 

Therefore, Rupert is posh, good looking, gentlemanly and suave, he knows how to deal with people and exert control on those in the lower classes due to his upbringing.  He was a keen water polo player at boarding school and is an exceptional swimmer, he is also an accomplished horseman, having been brought up on a background of hunting etc. He has a good education but was lazy at school so is not exceptional.  Nonetheless he knows his way around a library and his emersion in boarding school debating societies etc have given him an ability to fast talk his way out of situations.

Rupert wears expensive but aged and slightly tatty clothing, usually a 3 piece suit of some description.  Among his possessions are a few family heirlooms including a solid gold pocket fob watch presented to him by his father on is 18th and a silver plated fountain pen which was in his top pocket when he ran away from home.  But he is largely penniless due to his job as a journalist.

Captain Wyatt Power, US Army

Badly injured in the Great War, Power's face is heavily scarred from shrapnel. Thanks to his father, a Virginian Congressman, he was able to retain his commission at the end of the war allowing him to have a career of sorts. Power thinks of himself as a true soldier of the South and is proud of his background.

Power comes from an old Virginian family. His grandfather was Col. Power who commanded the 18th Virginia Brigade from 1864 until the end of the civil war when he joined in the local electoral commission and helped ensure local voting laws were complied with. Wyatt still carries his sabre to this day.

Wyatt's father is Patrick 'Pad' Power. A loose cannon in his youth with a love of card games. He was since matured and invested wisely in various industries. Unlike many of his peers, he feels Europe will again be ripped apart by war and has a strong interest in a rifle manufacturer. Seeking to gain further advantage he used his contacts to ensure Wyatt remained in the army and is hopin he will achieve a significant rank to help the family gain lucrative contracts. He is currently in his second term as a congressman and likely to achieve a third.

slight delay to the start, but this gives me time to reread the rules (not played in over 15 years) and prep the first adventure..
Also gives players time to roll their characters , and or add fluff..

I aim for the first session to be Monday 21st May..
However I it is not going to be possible for me to run two seperate scenarios at a time, and we do have too many players for one group. So the way I am going to do it is the first 6 players who can play are in the group on that monday, other players can step in (if they want) when the orginal players cant make it.
I will keep a written account of where players are on this thread, so everyone can keep up with the storyline..
Before we start the big campaign later on, we will then know which players like the game etc and want to carry on playing..

Warning: As I want to have a slot 2 game of something, I need players who are up for this to be at the club by 6:30, no late starts for this sorry chaps...
