I am considering writing a demo scenario for Anima called Tears of Vikyris. It will be playable in 3-4 hours and will contain all that is needed to play it including a setting summary and simplified rules. I have done similar scenarios for CthulhuTech (http://www.portalsee.../misc/ctech.htm), Blue Rose (http://220.127.116.11...og_princess.pdf) and True20 (http://www.sdc.rpg.n...geTeaGarden.pdf).
Anyway, I am getting my copy of Anima for Christmas. Though I have a reasonable knowledge of the game, I don't know the details. So I have some specific questions arising from my prospective story and it would be very helpful if they could be answered before then. They are:
1. From the artwork , it appears that there are angel and demon-like beings in the setting. Is this true and can they be PCs? From what I have read, the setting includes Christian concepts so I assume that these beings are at least partially similar in concept.
2. Is it possible to have offspring from human and angel/demon pairings? Actually, the more pertinent question is there anything in the rules as written to prevent such offspring?
3. Is it possible for a PC to change their appearance and mask their true nature, say an angel-like being seeming human for lengthy periods of time?.
4. Is there a calender? If so, what is the current year?
Thanks in advance.
