Here is the new skin: The Ancient

https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B47DgdQMaNxiYzcxQnhrY1kwME0

It's about playing a cosmic horror in the flesh of a teenager. I think it can work, but I would like to hear from you what you think and, if you would like to play it, to see if it truly works. It seems fine.

I dont know the link of the image. That was an image sent to me by a friend. If anyone can tell me, I would be glad.

There's things I like about the Skin. I think I'm a sucker for the skins that revolve around special Conditions.

I would argue strongly against the backstory "Someone thinks you are a menace and fights you" - Starting out, simple antagonist relationships are rarely fun (Developed in play, complicated oppositional relationships are often fun).

I think I would inject more "What does it mean to be a teenager and to be an ancient?" in regards to how the Skin plays, And "What does it mean to be a teenager, while there's an ancient running around?" in regards to how the Skin effects other people.

You are right about the background. I will change it

I changed the background to:

Someone is, for some reason that you cannot
grasp, undecipherable for you. You just can't
understand them. You must know what makes
them special. For now, they gain 2 strings
on you

I also added in "Playing the Ancient":

...What does
it mean to be a teenager and an ancient? And
for the other players, what does it mean to be
a teenager and to have an ancient walking around?
