Character Creation Questionnaire

When coming up with your character, think about the following questions. The answers do not need to be long (Like a sentence would be sufficient), but if you should think about them. I may ask you to elaborate on an answer I find interesting and want to work into the game. Also please no stereotypical "I had no friends and family and lived alone"-type non-answers please. The point of this is to generate plot hooks. No promises but if you do give me something during this stage that ends up being a plot hook for the entire group, I might throw you extra XP as it gets resolved.

  • What is your apparent age? What is your actual age? When did you die?
    • For this game I'm going to ask that everyone's PC's Embrace be relatively recent—within the past decade or two.
  • How happy were you with your human life?
    • What did you do for a living? Did you find it fulfilling? Would you still be doing it now if you hadn't died?
    • What was your relationship with your friends and family?
      • What do they think happened to you? Are they still looking for you?
      • What unfinished business do you have with them? Are you still keeping tabs on them?
  • How do you feel about being dead?
    • Who was your sire and what was your relationship with him or her like?
      • How did your sire find and Embrace you? Did your sire approach you pretending to be a mortal, or were you snatched away into a back alley somewhere? Etc?
      • Why did your sire choose you for the embrace? Do you even know?
    • How do you feel about your Clan? How well do you fit it's stereotype?
      • In other words, if you're Nosferatu, does it bother you much being ugly? If you're Ventrue, are you as arrogant as other Kindred believe those in your clan to be? Etc.
  • How do you deal with the "logistics" of being a vampire?
    • What are you feeding habits like? What are you typical hunting grounds? What method do you use to find and isolate your prey?
    • Where do you prefer to keep a haven? Why? Do you look for luxury and comfort or more practical concerns like security?
  • Why are you in Las Vegas?
    • Our games assumes that you just arrived in Las Vegas. The first session will involve the prestation, where you present yourself to the Prince and he gives you permission to hunt in Las Vegas. You may have just died in Las Vegas, or may have needed to leave your "birthplace" and travel to Las Vegas for some reason. So what was the reason?
      • Did you die in Vegas? What's the story there? A bachelor's party gone horribly wrong?
      • Did you die before coming to Vegas? Did your sire kick you out of your place of death for some reason? Why Vegas as opposed to any other town you could have gone to?
    • What did you think of Las Vegas before arriving there? Did you always want to visit while you were alive, or did you think the town was disgusting? Did any specific element of the city (magicians, gambling, prostitution, etc.) appeal to you?
