    I will try to put it up late tonight, so you aren't far behind anyone else. On a bright note, if she doesn't show up I have a really good idea for the opening story.

    And the IC has finally come up. The starting story may have changed, but it should be interesting...

    I've just got to say, the way you do the pictures in your posts is really cool. We haven't known one another for long, but I am quite impressed so far.

    Thank you. Description is not necessarily my strongest of points, and as they say, pictures are worth a thousand words. So I just try to show what I have imagined in my head.

    Hello all. Back from Cthulhu and garage sales but not quite ready to post. I'm going to let this conversation go forward just a bit more before my character shows up, so that he's actually a little bit late.

    As for Cthulhu? Six characters started off, four were killed and two managed to survive but are completely mad after glimpsing the true form of Nyarlathotep. And there's a Gug loose in Seattle...

    don't feel obligated for your character to run late, I just put that because you said you wouldn't be posting last night

    Softpaws has a cell phone. She works part time, and uses her cash flow mostly for food and her phone bill, but she also pays some of the rent.

    1) remember that most garou dislike technology. Most find tech very strange and distrust it.

    2) bone gnawers have 0 starting resources. Neither trashcan or jackdaw can afford a cell phone.

    So no, sorry it's not the easy. :p
    Honestly i see a house phone and the glass walker having a cell phone. no one else.But i will leave that ultimately up to you.

    Homids tend to be less skeptical about technology, so arguably any homid who could afford a phone might have one.

    Hmmm, does the fifteen year old girlness override the Garouness?

    In this case, I'd suspect it does. Softpaws went through a few years of the public school system in the 2000's, so she would definitely use her resources to get a $50/month or so phone plan.

    To... Text people?

    The majority of the Garou nation is Homid based on the bithrates they present. Supposedly the wolf inside just makes the leary of human society, so they don't really fit in anywhere until their first change. But like i said, its up to each of you individually. Given softpaws backstory, i don't think it's out of the question to own a cell phone. Although i would ask, what is your job? unless you have fake papers, there is no way a 15 year old could be a park ranger...

    No, she isn't actually a park ranger.

    She's sort of an assistant, who is working through a program to 'get the troubled youth of the city exposed to nature'

    Obviously, she excelled in the program, knowing quite a bit about nature and being a moderately reliable person (for a teen), so she was offered to stay on as a paid volunteer. She assists with managerial duties, teaches / assists with workshops, cleans, etc.

    It's a real thing in Southern California; my step brother did it.

    Is that a reasonable source of resources 1, or should I come up with something else?

    i can deal with that. I think Illinois has some age restriction stuff that makes it hard to get a job before age 16, but its not something i really care to worry about. So its fine. you likely work at the bird sanctuary thats a mile from your house.

    I put two dots into it, and assume my pack mates invested as they said they would.

    I've got 2-3 dots to spend... Was just waiting on any other totem thoughts out of the ones I listed. We have 2 with first picks for boar, and we have 1 first pick and 1 second pick for sphinx... Was hoping at least one other person would weigh in with thoughts since the two totems are close, amongst the three of us that commented.

    Um, both are good. I don't really mind one way or another, but what are the themes and bans etc of the two?

    It doesn't look like we're a very combat-oriented pack, so if Boar is all about combat then Sphinx would be a better fit IMHO.

    The difference are as follows:

    Sphinx:
    Cost: 7
    Permanent Stat Boost: 1 wits
    Skill boost: 3 enigma
    Reknown Boost: 1 temporary honor
    Ban: can not refuse a riddle challenge


    Boar:
    Cost: 5
    Permanent Stat Boost: 1 stamina
    Skill Boost: 2 Brawl
    Renown Boost: None
    Ban: Can not hunt or eat boar/pig/pork/ham

    Personally I think the renown bonus is fairly worthless. Stamina and wits are both extremely important attributes for werewolves so I consider them even. The ban on sphinx is definitely more inconvenient. Enigma is usable by everyone, but how often will it really be rolled? We can each meditate and use it for gnosis recovery but other than that I thibk it's use is going to be reserved to a select few occassions by the person with the largest enigmas dice pool to start. Brawl is something usable by everyone, while it has a specialized purpose, it's probably going to be used more often than enigmas.

    So I think boar is cheaper, has a comparable stat boost, more convenient ban, with a more oftenly used skill boost.

    Shopping at the Kosher grocery store is okay with Softpaws. Hebrew National franks are some of the best hot dogs around, though beef and turkey bacon don't even hold a candle to the real thing.

    Ah well, the sacrifices we make.

    Let's go boars...!

    Ok then I'll allocate 2 dots (which adds up to the 5 needed) and Boar is our totem.

    We all get a stamina dot

    If you have 2 dots in resources, you may have a used vehicle or a new vehicle that you need to make payments on.... your choice.
