Friday Morning Thoughts

It's Friday morning. The end of the work week is nigh, and I'm glad for this. Work is busy this morning, as it usually is on Fridays, but that's good as it's keeping my mind off other things.

The weather has cooled off somewhat here in Ottawa, thanks to major thunderstorms that came through the area yesterday, but the temperatures are climbing again though the humidity is relatively comfortable. This might allow me to get out and do some walking again during the weekend, as my body and lungs just couldn't take the humidity. That said, the pollen counts are high today, so my allergies are bothering me something fierce.

Seeing as how it's Friday, the Friday night gamers will be meeting this evening to continue playing games. We're going to be starting a brand new Atlantis: The Second Age RPG adventure tonight, so I'm looking forward to that.

Nothing much else to say at the moment.

Chill 3rd Edition Character Creation - Jillian ("JJ") Jones

As most folks know, I'm pretty excited about getting to run the latest incarnation of a classic horror rpg. Since I'm getting ready to run the Chill 3rd Edition RPG that has just come out from the folks at Growling Door Games on my three gaming groups, I thought I would post up here a detailed example of character creation for the Chill 3rd Edition Roleplaying Game.


Game: Chill 3rd Edition Roleplaying Game
Publisher: Growling Door Games
Degree of Familiarity: Pretty decent. I ran the original Chill RPG from Pacesetter Games for a good chunk of the 1980s, and also ran the Mayfair Games version of the game published in early 1990s. I haven't run it in a few years, but the new edition just came out, so I've got basic familiarity with this incarnation of the game, and am just doing the best I can.
Books Required: Chill 3rd Edition.

Please note that this post is extremely long, as I've gone into the game mechanics a bit in terms of character creation, and have provided background on the character and the choices. Hence the majority of this post is behind the cut. That said, there is some of the game mechanics and descriptions of game world elements that I've skimped on in this write-up, so if you want to know more, just drop me a line in the Comments.

And there you have the character that I created for the Chill 3rd Edition Roleplaying Game. This character took me about 25 minutes, plus I would say another half-hour of leafing through various sections of the Chill rulebook and aspects of character creation and development.

Comments and feedback are welcome. :)
