[Horror on the Orient Express] Character Creation

The full Order convenes to create characters for our long-awaited run of Horror on the Orient Express! Owing to the adventure's deadly nature, everyone makes a primary and secondary character. Among the 10 player-characters created are some familiar faces from campaigns past, as well as characters from the pages of history books and fiction alike...

The campaign wiki can be found here.

  1. ah finally. I admit, I had trouble with the Achtung Cthulhu series, as it was hard for my MP3 player to play em in order, but now we get back to something I have a lot of interest in.

    Go get em, and hope you had a great Gencon

    1. Yeah, I think there were some issues with coding the A!C files. I'll have to go back and see if I can fix that for posterity.

      I'm super excited about this one. And yeah, Gen Con was a roaring success!

  2. So, you make everyone create backup characters from the beginning, and then propose adopting a health system that is meant to make the game more survivable?

    I'm going to try and not get attached to anyone.

    1. I dont know the story at all, so I am interested in how this goes.

    2. I'm making two more back up characters before the first session is how it goes.

    3. start trolling Larkins after char 4, just start playing Victor from the Deadlands game (ask if Sonovabitch can fit in the baggage car), then Sir Caligaris, and Sir Daig, and on and on into the folder of the dead.

    4. My charcter's long-lost identical twin had tracked my now-dead character down and was planning to reunite on this train before discovering their sibling's mutilated corpse, and has sworn to take up their name and avenge their death.

      Also I am completely caught up because of twin telepathy so let's not bother with introductions.

    5. CoC, where death is the goal and doesn't matter in the least.
