Mummy: the Awakening
From out the light of many a
From Pharaonic splendour, Memphian gloom,
And from the night aeonian of the tomb
They brought him forth, to meet the modern ray,—
Upon his brow the unbroken seal of clay,
While gods have gone to a forgotten doom,
And desolation and the dust assume
Temple and cot immingling in decay.
-- from "The
Mummy" by Clark Ashton Smith
Summary of Mummy's Societal Structure if any
Mummy is closed
as of May 2005
The Mummy ST does not
have any restrictions on character creation at this time.
MORATORIUM EFFECTIVE 7/11/04 --
will no longer be accepting new Mummy PC's in this chronicle,
unless the ST's lift this restriction prior to the completion of "Time
of Judgment." We may consider NPC's on a case by case
basis but it is highly unlikely.
of August 2004, we know of no plans for White Wolf to provide for Mummy PC's in the new WOD 2.0, and so we currently anticipate phasing this
genre out in the course of the TOJ Chronicle. If this changes, you will
be notified here as we learn more.
players who already had Mummy PC's approved by July 2004 may
continue to play them, move them to someone else's game, or withdraw
MAKING A M:tR CHARACTER:
following is merely a "cheat sheet" or guide. You are highly
encouraged to at least buy or get access to the core book
Template that you can download HERE:
temporary sites for help on Nature & Demeanor
are incomplete but decent enough to help):
There is an actual list of concepts HERE
(link under construction). We
do realize that some of them may not fit exactly but do the best you
can. Concepts are usually a 1-2 word root-level label for who your
character is at the core (not in a supernatural sense). Examples might
be: Drifter, Intellectual, Party Animal, Politician, Misguided Prophet,
Socialite. These are stereotypes and needn't be literal; details would
be covered in your background.
Link containing examples of Concepts:
Specializations (Attributes and/or Abilities) -- If
you have a 4 or higher, you may take a specialization in something, but
the bonus rerolling ONLY is done when you are using that specific
if you have an Appearance of 4 and your specialization is
"Sexy", you only get the bonus when you are trying to
deliberately be "sexy" in your RP.
Links to use for Merits & Flaws. The VOE one is incomplete and VTM
-centric in coverage; the Pen&Paper one doesn't give details but
it DOES give the sourcebook for tons of them in every genre so you
know what's currently legal and what isn't.
