Character Creation

All characters will be rolled according to the standard CoC rules found in the Quickstart Guide.

For easy reference, stats are rolled as follows:

  • Strength, Constitution, Dexterity, Appearance, Power: 3d6
  • Size, Intelligence: 2d6+6
  • Education: 3d6+3

Each stat in a group can be swapped before playing. For instance, you can swap STR with DEX, and SIZE with INT, but you can’t swap INT with STR. EDU cannot be swapped with anything else.

If your character has a particularly low roll for a concept you really want to play, and swapping doesn’t help, you can sacrifice 2 points from other stats to gain 1 point in a single stat.

We’re using the Present Day character sheet.

The adventure starts in Louisiana, so feel free to come up with your own reasons for being near or in New Orleans (you live there, you’re on vacation, business trip, etc). Otherwise I’ll fill in the blanks. If I have an idea of your professions at least, I can probably work those better into the game. I suggest that there is at least 1 investigator with language points in any of the following:

  • French
  • Muskogean
  • Any of the Niger-Congo family of languages (Filani, Yoruba, etc)
  • Only long-time residents Louisiana may take points in Creole French.
