Attributes


All attributes (Physical - Strength, Dexterity, Stamina; Social - Charisma, Manipulation, Appearance; Mental - Perception, Intelligence, Wits) start out with one dot ( X ) each.
Primary: 7 dots
Secondary: 5 dots
Tertiary: 3 dots.

This means that if mental is your primary attribute, you have 7 dots to spend on the mental attributes. So, you could put 3 dots in perception, 2 dots in intelligence, and 2 dots in wits, or something like that. Doing that would give a 4 perception (because you start out with 1 dot in each attribute) 3 intelligence, and 3 wits.

So, if your secondary was social, you would have 5 dots to spend. So, if you spent 2 in charisma, 2 in manipulation, and 1 in appearance, you would have a 3 charisma, 3 manipulation, and a 2 appearance.

Tertiary, like say, the only one left, physical, you would have 3 dots to spend, being your least strong area of attributes. So, you could put 1 dot in strength, dexterity, and stamina, giving you a rating of 2 in each one.

~~~~~
Abilities

Primary: 13
Secondary: 9
Tertiary: 5

This works the same way, except that you do not start out with one dot in each thing. So, if Talents were your primary ability, you would have 13 dots to spread out amongst the selection of talents. The categories are as follows:

Talents - Alertness, Athletics, Brawl, Dodge, Empathy, Expression, Intimidation, Leadership, Streetwise, Subterfuge.

Skills - Animal Ken, Crafts, Drive, Etiquette, Firearms, Melee, Performance, Security, Stealth, Survival.

Knowledges - Academics, Computer, Finance, Investigation, Law, Linguistics, Medicine, Occult, Politics, Science.

Along with many other Secondaries (more specialized abilities) that will be listed at a later date.

~~~~~
Disciplines

You have 3 dots to spend on disciplines.

Example: For a Brujah, the Disciplines are Celerity (quickness), Potence (strength), and Presence (Heightened appeal to others, leadership). You could spend a dot in each discipline, or put 2 in Celerity, and one in Potence, or 3 in Presence. What ever combination that adds up to 3.

Your clan determines what disciplines you have. Here are the clans and their disciplines:

Brujah: Celerity (quickness), Potence (strength), and Presence (Manipulating others view of you)

Gangrel: Animalism (Control of Animals and the Beast Within), Protean (physical animalistic adeptations), and Fortitude (resistance to attacks, fire, and sunlight, to a degree)

Malkavian: Dominate (Control of others Will), Obfuscate (Hiding from others), Auspex (Sight beyond Sight).

Nosferatu: Potence (strength), Obfuscate (Hiding from Others), Animalism (control over animals and the beast within)

Toreador: Celerity (quickness), Auspex (Sight beyond Sight), Presence (Manipulating others view of you)

Tremere: Dominate (Control of others Will), Thaumaturgy (blood magic), Auspex (Sight beyond Sight)

Ventrue: Dominate (control), Presence (Manipulating others view of you), Fortitude (stamina)


~~~~~
Backgrounds

You have 5 dots to spend on backgrounds.

The backgrounds are:

Generation: each dot spent lowers your generation. You start at 13 before you spend any dots.

Resources: wealth 3+ MST approval

F
ame 3+ MST approval

S
tatus - 3+ MST approval

M
entor: Each dot increases the strenght of a person who looks after you. Consult MST

H
erd: Each dot increases the number of humans you can drink from without fear. Kind of like, they are used to you. My character uses street people, for example.

R
etainers: People you can call on for services.

A
llies: Humans who will help you. They are usually well placed in society.

Remember, Backgrounds need to have a written history to accompany and explain them. The higher the levels, the more we expect to see a character fleshed out in her history to explain how she acquired these things and maintains them.

~~~~~
Virtues


You have 7 dots to spend on virtues.

You start out with one dot in each of the following, and may dole out the 7 in any way you wish.

Conscience, self-control, and courage.

Humanity equals Conscience + Self-control.
Willpower is equal to your courage rating.

*If your character chooses a path, it is not Self-Control/Conscience. Each path dictates whether it is Self-Control OR Instinct and Conscience OR Conviction. If you don't have them right, or dont plan to play them, dont take them. Stick with humanity. Remember, characters not on humanity look IMMENSELY dead. Worse than the most Goth type person you've ever seen. Marilyn Manson looks like a beauty

~~~~~
Merits and Flaws (on the tab that says "Back" for those using the Excel sheet)

Merits & Flaws

Each human being is different, and as people are diverse, so are vampires. One way that we can use to bring a character to life in role playing is to give her those little quirks and talents that make up an individual.

Merits and Flaws are exactly what they say they are. You may use any free points you have left over from you character sheet to add a merit, depending on how many you require for the merit. You may generate free points by adding flaws. For reasons of fairness you may have no more than 7 points of Merits, and 7 points of Flaws at Character Creation.
