Nothing stopping you from it. Though you might have to ask is your horror the Original Chimera? A new one? The son of Chimera? Didn't some greek jerk hero define it's Anathema to be Paradox and then use one to kill it? Your character will probably if they do care about that sort of thing have to figure that out.
Thanks also, do you know at what point the book starts talking about GM stuff I shouldn't worry about?

Sure. Chapter 5 is the antagonists section and talks about our mortal enemies the "Heroes" the sanctimonious sonuvabitches who can name something as our antithesis and use it against us. As they were explained to me at Gencon basically most heroes are head spinning crazy. Out to carve a name out of our hides, and since they are in touch with the dream, they can pick up a old sword at a flea market because of the thoughts attached to it name it Excaliber claim it's our one weakness (i.e. name that sword our Anathema) and then we got a problem because that flea market piece of trash might as well be the Sword of the King until we put that hero six feet under. So skim that chapter half heartedly if you want.

Chapter 6 talks about beasts from around the world and various locations Go ahead and read up on fractured Philly there. Otherwise skim away.

Chapter 7 is all for the Story teller Skip away.

Appendix 1...Skip
Appendix 2...Reference when needed
Appendix 3...Keep handy but no need to read it.

Okay. So we have four characters submitted with a handful more who have expressed interest.

Let me finally put a deadline on this, so anyone who is still considering submitting an application knows when to get it in by. Let's say two weeks from today.

February 17th, 2016

After that I'll make my selects or—slightly more likely—move ahead with the Qalyar, LonelyWolf, Xildur and RoleplayPun

-nod- I've been chomping at the bit on this. I've been hesitant to apply to other games because I wasn't sure if this would go forward.

Seeing as how the deadline has finally been declared I'll post my character with the details I have thus far, I'll create a character sheet, possibly add a picture and maybe fine tune the details when I have some more free time:

ApplicationName: Ambrose Ulmeyda
Character Concept: Collecting Author
Family: Eshmaki
Hunger for the Hoard
Legend: Watchful
Life: Shy
Occupation: Novelist
Age: 22

3 Aspirations :
1. Finish his latest novel, Heaven Smile
2. Prepare for his first Hero
3. Find a way to obtain the Dead Sea Scrolls and keep them all to himself.

Description: Ambrose tends to wear business casual attire to maintain some degree of professional look. His head appears to be bald except for the small hairs pushing themselves up and he is very skinny despite his diet and lifestyle.


Biography: Ambrose grew up in Normal, Illinois, he was a fairly quiet and reserved child without too many friends. At night he would be plagued with nightmares of being stalked in a dark forest but with the help of sleeping pills, he managed to make it through his childhood and preadolescence. However as a teenager, the nightmares became progressively more severe until he began writing them down. He submitted his first short story, "The Cloudman", for a school contest and won first prize for his story's "vividly detailed horror".

After that day, Ambrose decided he would suffer for his new found art and stopped taking his sleeping pills. He would endure the terror of his nightmares as they became his muse. He would write nine more short stories throughout his high school career, each one improving on the last as he crafted his art, and at least two of them were published in a local magazine. At the same time, he began to read and collect horror stories and novels. Now Ambrose was always an avid reader but now it seemed like every other week he needed a new book or collection to read and reread through and soon he began seeking out rarer copies and more obscure authors.

Upon graduating from his high school and getting accepted to Heartland Community College, Ambrose decided it was time to begin work on his first novel. That same night, he finally faced the creature which stalked him in the darkness and thus began his Homecoming. He finally embraced his inner Beast and began to understand his nature as an Eshmaki Collector.

Ambrose would get a job at a local retail store to support both his Hunger and his education. For the most part, he was able to sate his Hunger and make it through Heartland before transferring to Illinois State without much incident. His friends and family seemed to grow a little more uneasy around him but he did his best to contain his Begotten nature. After receiving his Bachelor's in English and finishing his first novel, Shades of the Forest, he believed he might have found a way to coexist with his Soul.

That was until he was involved in a car accident which put him in a coma for two weeks. As his body lied unconscious, his Soul grew restless and hungry. Eventually, it began to starve and went on a rampage throughout the Normal area. The Beast gorged itself on the Nightmares of his friends, family, and several strangers. By the time Ambrose awoke, the Beast had already sated itself but had created an atmosphere of paranoia for those around him.

Ambrose then quietly moved away to Philadelphia after getting a publishing deal from a local agent. Now he spends much of his time writing his newest story while searching for the books which sate his Hunger. In particular, he hunts for the rarest copies of horror stories and the oldest and most obscure occult texts. At the same time, he searches for others of his kin as well as stories of his own Beast so that he may learn more of and refine his nature.


Also one more question, should I state what monster I want my character to be specifically?
