Character Creation Guidelines

Step I:
Before doing any stats on a sheet, these basic questions need to be answered:

  1. How old is your character?
  2. What was unique about your PC’s childhood?
  3. What kind of person was your PC?
  4. What was your PC’s first brush with the supernatural?
  5. How did the embrace change your PC?
  6. Who embraced your PC, and how was she treated after the shovelhead method?
  7. How did you meet the other PCs?
  8. Where is your PC’s haven?
  9. Do you, even after all the Sabbat has done to you, still retain any connections to your mortal life?
  10. What are your PCs habitual feeding grounds?
  11. What motivates your PC?

Step II: Character Concept
Choose concept, clan/bloodline, nature & demeanor. (See Restricted Clans)

Step III: Select Attributes
Prioritize the three categories: Physical, Social and Mental. (7/5/3)
Your PC automatically starts with one dot in each.
Rate Physical: Strength, Dexterity, Stamina
Rate Social: Charisma, Manipulation, Composure
Rate Mental: Perception, Intelligence, Wits

Step IV: Select Abilities
Prioritize the three categories: Talents, Skills, and Knowledges. (13/9/5).
Choose Talents, Skills & Knowledges.
No ability higher than 3 at this stage.

Step V: Select Advantages
Choose Disciplines (4), Backgrounds (1), and rate Virtues (5). Unlike in the Camarilla, Sabbat Vampires do not start automatically with one point in each virtue.

Step VI: Finishing Touches
Record Humanity/Path Rating (Equal to Conscience/Conviction + Self Control/Instinct), Willpower (Equal to Courage), and Blood Pool. Spend freebie points (15).
