Building your Sheet:
(vampire/mortal per vtm)
Name: Your character's name .
Player: Your name / nickname (only Admin will have access to this information and the only reason we ask is to help us keep character per. player counts accurate).
Chronicle: CT (or something simular)
Clan: If Kindred, list your clan (Ie: Gangrel). If mortal, list "Mortal"
Generation: If Kindred, list your character's numeric generation (Ie: 6 or 6th). If mortal, list "N/A" or leave blank. DO NOT USE DOTS IN BACKGROUND FOR GENERATION. Based on how we've structured the game, your generation is a given. Use background dots to better flesh out your character.

Concept: Simple one or two word description of your character's career / career path (Ie: Criminal, Journalist, Student, Hooker, Thief, Unemployed, Varies, Jack-of-all-trades, etc.).

MORE ABOUT DOTS FOR ALL CHARACTERS: in the Attributes portion of the sheet you automatically start with ONE dot in each line. This means that no one (except Nos, double click on the appearance dot to remove it, this dot may be used in either Charisma or Manipulation if you choose) will have less than one dot in any of their Attributes. You also start out with ONE dot in each of your Virtues. Every other section starts with ZERO. Furthermore, for all characters, Kindred and Kine, Willpower is = to Courage.

rating x 6 for all Disciplines. This is both a curse and a blessing of being Clanless.
