Create your 2005 self as a character sheet.


Concept & Identity

Players will start by playing themselves… or at least, WoD versions of themselves who made slightly different, generally darker, choices. The story will start in 2005 when the players are awakened to magick, and establish themselves as a coven…. and then skip ahead to 2016 when the players have become more competent mages, and possibly diverged further from their counterparts in reality.
