I have no idea how to do the points and stuff...so just do that for me. Is there a list of occupations or do I just say one. Same with Hobbies. With the chart. Do the percentages mean cost or, percentage of your points it takes?

Percentile rolls are done with two d10s. One is used to calculate the first digit and the other is the second. You want to get your percentage or lower.

You can pretty much be anything for occupation, as long as it exists in the 20's. A good way to think of an occupation is to look at your stats.

BASE STATS:
STR 15
CON 9
DEX 12
SIZ 17
INT 13
POW 10

EDU 14

Secondary Attributes:
Idea 65
Knowledge 70
Luck 50
Damage Bonus: +1D4
Magic Points: 10
HP: 13/13
Sanity 50


So you're a big, strong and fairly strong guy. You can run faster than others and you're fairly smart but you're not that tough. You're also pretty young. This means you could be alot of things, such as an athlete, college student, actor, dropout, farmer, janitor etc.

OOC: Let's just say I grabbed the note book/ orifice and be done with the whole business.

I look at the papers on the desk to see whose house I'm in, without riffling through them, then call out to see if anyone's home. Then peer through door without crossing through it.

@Zupponn, it just so happens that creating your own character is the best way to win over a GM, and your character actually makes sense with the setting. In fact, I was hoping one of you guys would create a literal investigator. You're in. Also, you need four hobby skills.

Sorry I'm late guys, today was really busy and I was just in a mood yesterday.

You quickly go inside, and grab your "war hammer". It's a very well crafted weapon you made ornately designed with a carving of a lion on both faces. It's designed to be lightweight so that someone of your meager strength can lift and swing it without toppling over. You doubt you can create anything as good as it in your entire life. As you come back out, you see the car and the two aboriginal men. You see the woman restrained in the back seat.

Sten Bos (DEX 11)
Aboriginal 1 (DEX 10)
Aboriginal 2 (DEX 10)

(61) You see the car, and smash it with your hammer. Unfortunately, all you did was dent the hood.

(16)(2) Aboriginal 1 punches you in the face. Hard. -2hp

(23)(3) Aboriginal 2 punches you even harder, aiming for your throat. You drop the hammer and stumble backwards. -3hp

Currently at 10 hp.

"Excellent, because I could use more men like you. This job pays at $6.75 an hour, as long as you promise to never form a union with your coworkers. If you are diligent and help keep this bank and it's vault safe you'll be safely employed for years. What do you say?"

You look at a few of the papers, but you don't see anything to do with the owner of the house. The papers look like reports.

"Hello?" You call out to see if anyone's home. All you hear afterwards is silence. You then peer through the other door and see a staircase.

Wait, is $6.75 above minimum wage in Canada? Because the way he says implies it's slightly higher than normal. But I'm just checking because in the US, minimum wage is $7.25.

Assuming it is, I reply, "I'd say that I'd be happy to work for you under those terms, Mr. Lupanes. Thank you for making me part of the team." I salute him after saying this, for effect.

I don't know what the minimum wage was, but Ford paid it's factory workers $5 an hour in the 20's which was pretty good for menial labour.

Okay, edited my previous post with hobbies. I mainly just picked some random things. I'm not sure if they're real skills or not.

Open door and peer out at names on address boxes and street names, then quietly open drawers in desk to look for any useful supplies.
