I'm here!

By "Shasta City", is it roughly a fictional version of Mount Shasta, CA?

And do I just follow normal rules for character creation?

Shasta was a gold rush “boom town” and on the route for ‘49ers to their prospecting sites. According to Wikipedia, anyway. It was scrubbed after Pacific Railroad put their tracks through Redding. Which might be a good bit of story hook, now that I mention it.

Anyway, I like the area and have always marveled at the statue in Yreka. Big mountain, gold diggers, Native Tribes; a land wrought with danger, surely

For character creation, yes, a standard creation is fine. I know there are a few dice rolling methods for stats; roll 2d10 for each and assign them how you like, them modify them appropriately. Probably want to decide what type of character you want first as the gun fighting strongly favors Coordination.

If it’s ok by you, I’d like to make this game focus as little as possible on the racism and sexism of the time. Mainly since it takes place pre Civil War era.

What kind of character are you thinking about?

Have any specific story types you want to avoid?

Well, I was doing a little research, and figured that was the area you meant. All the notes I made are at work, but basically my character's grandfather moved from Missouri to Oregon for the fur trade in the 1830s, then headed south to Northern California when gold was discovered. He sent for the family, but died before we reached him.

My character grew up with seven brothers and sisters, so we all hunted to support the family. I was moving to Oregon with my fiance', but he was killed during the voyage. So with no husband and all the brothers and sisters who came with her busy with their own families, she's determined to follow her grandfather's footsteps, whether trapping, prospecting, or taking advantage of opportunities!

She's not a quick-draw artist, but she's a really good shot, and a skilled woodswoman. She's not familiar with mountain survival, though, or prospecting, but she figures she can learn.

Stat rolls
Dice Roll:
2d10 5, 2 Total = 7

Dice Roll:
2d10 7, 3 Total = 10

Dice Roll:
2d10 5, 3 Total = 8

Dice Roll:
2d10 8, 4 Total = 12

Dice Roll:
2d10 8, 2 Total = 10


10, 13, 11, 14, 13. Wow. That's...horrible.

Strength: 10 - Average for active men
Coordination: 14 - Quite fast, has some reputation
Observation: 13 - Notices things that have changed
Stature: 6 - A few people who know her realize she's OK
Luck: 7 - Call her "Lucky"

Okay, not as bad as it seemed. Though I do seem to recall a rule somewhere about "if you don't like your first rolls, you can reroll".

Well, I don’t know about about a refill, lol... but how about 6 extra points to put wherever you want?

Do all your siblings live in the Shasta Area?

Oh, forgot to ask...do the six points add on 1 for 1, or do I recalculate bonuses?
