[Sorcerer 1880] W.C. Temple

21 November, 2008

Peter, Søren and I are playing Sorcerer via Skype again, this time in a London anno 1880 setting primarily dreamt up by Peter, who also agreed to GM this time. This looks very promising indeed, and this is my player character.

The Most Reverend William Charles Temple, bishop at Westminster Abbey.
STA 3 Reliance on medicines
WILL 3 Upper class
LORE 4 Solitary Adept
COVER 3 Anglican Bishop
HUM 3
Price: Pompous (-1 to social rolls among commoners)
Telltale: Neck cloth coloured in blood.

Back of character sheet:
Dean Starkey and Lady Starkey (COVER), Ivy McNeil (sister) and Fergus McNeil (financier), Herbert M Temple MP (brother), Archibald Dickens, London House, (PRICE), Stone Tablet from British Museum, Hazel Miller (LORE), Mr X, Letter from Mr X (Kicker).

Kicker
William, dressed in civil clothes, is on his way home from a late visit at Ms Miller’s. Temple’s knees are shaking because they have had carnal pleasure for the first time, and Hazel – Ms Miller – showed him how not to make her with child. A well-dressed gentleman approaches him and hands him a sealed letter with the words: “I believe this is for you, Sir,” whereafter said gentleman disappears in the London night. The seal bears a mark unlike anything William has ever seen.
As soon as William is safely home in his London home, and has changed into his night gown, he carefully opens the letter without damaging the wax seal. It is written in blue ink on very thick paper.
“Sir,
And Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and it came to pass, when he went in unto his brother’s wife, that he spilled it on the ground, lest that he should give seed to his brother.
And the thing which he did displeased the LORD: wherefore he slew him also.

A package containing a description of Your recent – We are at a loss as to how to classify them, even describe them – shall We say ‘activities’, has been deposited with the London Times newspaper, only to be opened on two occasions, namely in case of anything unfortunate happening to the bearer of this letter or by direct instructions from Us.

Fortunately, We have arranged for a comfortable modus vivendi to avoid said contents ever to see the frontpage of the London Times. You will commence by donating your entire salary to Us.

As a lamb, you have been separated from the fold, blamed the shepherd from not keeping you safe and now among wolves, hiding, afraid, praying never to have left.

Most sincerely,”
