That depends largely on the ST! :) I'm always interested.

I'm STing.  It's my first Play by Post game.  As Rad said, it's moving a little slower than I'd like at the moment, but that's largely because of busy summer schedules.  You are welcome to join if you like.
The game started here: https://forums.planetvampire.com/?topic=6235.0 (https://forums.planetvampire.com/?topic=6235.0) if you want to get an idea.

Edit: also, I should add, this will be the only part of Planet Vampire that is correctly moderated.

Ok, read up on it: Sounds like a really interesting concept!

Lol, are you really all Brujah?

Now you mentioned that it was a group of "Powerful PCs"- Are we talking Ancillae-level, or badass neonates?

Badass neonates, although standard character creation rules so.. And no real min-maxing either

So- wait. Stock sheets?

You are playing Neonates, recently turned vampires.

Stock sheets?  Um.. if "stock" means sheets with stats from character creation, then yes.  If you mean like are the sheets pregen'd?  No.  You can pick your character, design them, flesh them out and make them different with merits and flaws, etc....  but there is no "here's an extra 50 xp for being awesome!"  This game isn't about being super powerful.  It's about alliances, concealing yourself, concealing your true power, and choosing your allies wisely.  I may be leaving some stuff out.  Legal disclaimer here.  Don't expect to take on the most powerful Shen of Tokyo physically or directly.

His topic is locked because he just had a bunch of stuff pop up that he has to take care of.  He was already posting more slowly than me, and so he was just letting me know he wouldn't be able to give the attention to the game he wanted to.  So, since we were at an okay spot to end his Prologue, I went ahead and locked the thread.  When he returns I'm thinking we'll just chat for a bit about his character and what has been going on in the meantime to catch him back up quickly.  We'll see how soon he re-enters.  I've told him he's definitely welcome to return when he has the time, especially since we'll be going at our summer pace for another month.

I guess it's all about your point of view.  I think Saburo's doing okay.  He could certainly be doing a lot worse.

(That's a knock on Saburo. I love how he's just blithely going along with all these people who know about vampires and the Kuei-Jin and secret stuff. I suspect it will get him in trouble sooner or sooner than that.

I suspect he may have some sort of drug-related brain impairment. Or he's just a confident sonovabitch.)

In the East, the supernatural is much closer to the surface, even if it is still hidden.

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.

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.

Nigama mentioned in another thread that if we all committed to an agreed upon minimum number of posts per week, our player characters could be part of the same story, instead of three separate ones.  I started out at only about 2 posts a month, but now I'm up to 2 per week, and I'd like to continue at that rate.  I'd also like for my character to interact with the other player characters, for good or ill.  Hopefully we could get a coterie together. 
Title: Re: Yay new PbP game!

Forming a coterie, I mean.

I'm okay with the idea as a player. As for my character, it's a completely different question. :P
Title: Re: Yay new PbP game!
Post by: Gurkhal on December 20, 2016, 03:59:52 PM
I should mention that I don't "play to win" so to speak, so joining up with my character could actually turn out to be no advantage in getting ahead in the Jyhad.

I would seem so. Reason I asked was that there was no "Its time for Christmas so I'll be off untill X"

Sorry, yeah, the holiday kindof snuck up on me. I'll be posting tomorrow when I wake up! Thanks for being patient!

No problem, I'll be eagerly awaiting the continuation of our adventures.
