Ok, this seems to be somewhat of an general OT thread. Thus before I make a character I would ask what I should keep in mind? Are we all Camarilla? What Clans are allowed? Should I think of my character as a Childer of a already present NPC or will it be a new NPC and things like that. My present idea of a character is essentially an American tourist that gets Embraced for some strange reason. My choice would be that since I personally don't know much about Japanese culture I figure I might as well start a character that has roughly my own level of knowledge, at least to start with.

One thing also that I should mention is that I have a disorder which can make social interaction a bit cumbersome for me when I don't understand what's meant. So please bear with me if I need elaboration on posts that come up. I was actually thinking for a moment about a Malkavian with Aspberger's but I know that Malkavians has some bad reputation so I didn't want to push that.

Yes, to start it's the Camarilla clans, although I think it'd be hilarious if the Sabbat thought to try their hand in the East.

The Clans that are open are:

Malkavian, Gangrel

If you really want to play a Ventrue, Toreador, Nosferatu, Tremere, or Brujah, it's possible, but we'll have to work out the details a bit more specifically.

EDIT: If there are more players that wish to play, I might be willing to open up Independent Clans and/or even Antitribu Lasombra and Tzim.

Alright, then I'll try the Malkavian and see where that leads me. Do you want my character per PM or in some thread?

I'd like to join as a Japanese punk from San Francisco turned Gangrel.   

I know very little about Tokyo or Japanese culture, but I can learn.  I don't mind doing a little research.  I don't know much about the Kuei-jin either, but that might be a good thing.  My character might not know much about them so we can learn as we go.

Nice to see Another player coming in. :)

My character is pretty much done now and its a physical Malkavian with some mental stats and some skill with medicine. I picture him as a medical student who was probably on some form visit to Japan. Either as a tourist or as a recently moved employee for an international medicine company which shifted him to Japan, and shortly upon his arrival he was Embraced.

That's the short backstory but it has some importance for some background that I would like to buy and so it should probably be discussed with the GM Before the game, just what these background stuff are.

PM is fine, sure.

There are many Japanese communities around the world, including in San Francisco. You don't need to know much about Japanese culture and in fact it would be good if your character knows about as much as you. The important thing is that you're genetically Japanese so that you *look* Japanese. Otherwise, you will stand out right from the start. If you are planning on hiding from the dangers and powers that be, I'd say it's essential. However, the Tremere character did not look Japanese and, in fact, announced his presence to the locals, accepting (so far as we could see) the limits placed on his movement and actions.

I'm looking forward to roleplaying with you both.

I could mention Tokyo by Night to a few friends if we would like more players.  I could also mention it on the OWoD Facebook page.

My finalized character sheet and backstory have been sent via PM to Nigama. 

Are we ready to start?

I still need to have my backstory approved of, but after that I THINK we should be ready.

Yup, only had a few small things left to work out about your character.

Let's wait for a sec and see how things go with just you two before we open it up to an even bigger group, especially since I have to arrange for the retirement of the current ambassadors from the Ventrue, Tremere, Toreador, and Brujah Clans.

Had a BUNCH of questions I need answered before I okay your character, but it was a fun character to read and your sire certainly had my mind running to fill in blanks about how what she's done would even be possible. But I found ways. Also a few tweaks to the character sheet might be in order.

One tiny small issue.
