Awesome. I'll be reporting this for movement to the DFRPG Resource Collection board. Would you mind if this thread gets used as an archive for player characters? Because I think that that would be useful.

There are some interesting stunts here, which I would like to steal for the Homebrew Stunts thread. Do you mind?

And because I can't resist nitpicking (I know it's a bad habit):

-The son of Hercules should have Supernatural Strength instead of Superhuman Strength.
-Beast Change can only raise physical skills.
-I'm not sure what the Criminal Defence Layer stunt does.
-The Catch of Preston Chauncy should have a value of [+2], not [-2].

since we will be seeing more concepts added we should probably set up a guideline or two. such as, format? minimum amount of details? homebrew powerlevels? ect...

Well, you need to post the Power Level, Aspects, Skills, Powers, and Stunts. The rest can be worked out from those. If you are using a homebrew power level, make sure to tell us what its Refresh Total, Skill Cap, and Skill Point Total are.

I'm not picky about format, but I can see why someone would be. I use a template that's a little different from the one Buscadera uses, but since both are easily legible I don't think it matters. So I would say that anything goes for format as long as it is easily understood and includes the elements listed above.

My format is just a general one I use for my purposes. As long as people post something general, I'll allow it. I'm just glad to have contributed something to the board.

@Sanctaphrax Thanks for moving it to the DFRPG Resources. And I'd be fine if you snagged some stunts for your homebrew list. Which stunts? Thanks for the catches on the character sheets. With so many floating around, it's hard to keep them in order. Criminal Defense Lawyer is a repurposed version of Canon Lawyer from Father Forthill's writeup in Our World. It would read:

Criminal Defense Lawyer (Scholarship): Avi receives a +1 bonus to Scholarship checks related to law, and an additional +1 to checks related to criminal defense laws.

Thanks for the explanation and the stunts, and your welcome for the move and the nitpicking.

I was thinking of taking Too Cool For School, Adoring Fans, and Houdini. I might also take Freeze! Police! and Quickdraw. Some of these will need new names, but they look good mechanically.

Thanks! Ryan & Jeannie were used in another game I played on a different message board that fell apart, but I can't wait to find another game to port them into. Just as a note, the ability Jeannie's Skills [-1] should be bumped up to [-2] for balance purposes, since it's essentially Beast Change but allows for the increase of non-physical skills.

I'll include a few of my own submissions.  They're all Submerged level characters I made to hurry along the character creation process when new players last joined my game.  No reason to let them go to waste.

Chosen by Death

High Concept: Wordly Representative of Death
Trouble: Dead End Job
Other aspects: haven't thought them out yet...

Powers:
Marked by Power (-1)
Living Dead (-1)
Ghost Speaker (-1)

Skills:
Intimidation +5
Guns+4
Contacts+4
Burglary +3
Investigation+3
Lore+3
Athletics+2
Stealth+2
Endurance +2
Deceit+2
Driving+1
Craftsmanship+1
Resources+1
Empathy+1
Rapport+1

Just a half-character so far, but he's kind of a gumshoe, like Harry, chosen by Death after his death... and getting the short end of the stick. He can't die by most means, but he can't heal either, he can talk to ghosts... who are most of his clients actually. He has some spare money, because he doesn't need to eat, breathe, sleep, or drink. He gets some jobs from good old Reaper, with nothing to them with: e.g. kill that blampire!! With what? You have a gun, don't you? Or something like that.
