    Alright folks. Couple of things.

    If you haven't submitted a mythweavers character sheet, please go ahead and do that. If you can't, we'll work something out.

    Also gonna ask ya'll to do a tiny bit of work. I'd like everyone to give me a few things. Namely :

    A backstory. Doesn't need to be long, doesn't have to be short. Just give me an idea of who you are. Post them openly in the thread.

    A goal. Same deal, post it openly.

    A dirty secret. Something your character wouldn't want the rest of the group knowing. PM THIS.

    A secret goal. Same as above. PM THIS.

    A quick sum up of who your contacts are. Nothing lengthy, just make them actual connections, not just NPCs 1-4. Post openly in thread unless you feel something should be secret.

    Okay, okay, so I didn't get my character sheet done before the weekend...I just got a puppy the other day, you see, and she's been commanding most of my time. However, I GUARANTEE that I will finish up first thing this morning when I get home from work!

    I already put up my backstory.

    Jack's goal? He wants to pay back the debt his coach owes, and he wants to be well-paid for doing what he does best: knocking heads together. For the time being, he doesn't have any long-term plans beyond that; life is simply too chaotic.

    Contacts: his coach from college, Andrew Feldspar, to whom he remains close, and is the reason he's doing all this. Joann McGregor is a decent person; their relationship is mostly business, but she's cordial, as she sees more benefit in being pleasant to him than coldly ordering him around. Freddie's a stand-up kinda guy, and before Jack came along there wasn't really anyone he could really spar against—not a whole lot of trolls at that gym, and even fewer at their caliber of skill, so they got pretty close. Dr. Somers runs the gym partly for the money, but he's also subtly teaching them why to fight, not just how; he hasn't told them this, but he's slowly developing a widespread network of local muscle to keep neighborhoods safe, along with a few friends from med school. Jack's dad Kevin's not what you'd expect from the father of a troll: 5', 100 pounds, soft-spoken. He's devoted to his son, though, and gave up a lot to make sure Jack would be treated fairly and given what he needed, particularly when his wife Janet died when Jack was in middle school.

    I'll try to get those to you later tonight. One of my co-writers is bugging me to get one of my chapters done for his chapter so I've been focused on that.

    Alright guys, after a long day of reconsideration, I figure it's best if I withdraw my submission for the immediate future. I tried three times today to sit down and finish character-building and had to care for the puppy instead each time. I figure you guys don't want to keep waiting on me during the actual game either.
    But I can be available as a backup in the future in the event you lose somebody! So feel free to hit me up in that event :)
    Good luck, guys!

    I would still like to play, but this weekend I've been fighting dementia and insanity from an abscessed tooth. I've hardly had any sleep since Friday. Unfortunately, my dentist doesn't work on Friday's and the other options in town are butchers. I'll be getting this taken care of tomorrow and will finally be clear headed enough to give my character the thought required.

    Psssh. It's not a PbP game if there aren't constant obstacles keeping people from posting. Trust me. I did this for over fifteen years.

    But I understand.

    This is a maptool game, not play-by-post. :D

    We made our first foray into Shadowrun last night. Maptools failed us, so we went with a combination of Vent and the CF IRC channel.

    Things we learned.

    Jack, Krysten and Nails are really bad with computers. In fact, Jack and Nails might not even know what they are.

    Never leave bodies unattended! Or just kill everyone.

    Check the dumpster!

    Being invisible does not make you sneaky.


    Quote of the run. :

    Krysten - "Don't you want Mr.Johnson? It was his idea! We can go get him, he's right there. It will literally take three minutes."

    Jack - "No...That would give us a bad reputation."

    Krysten - "Getting killed gets us a bad reputation! It gives us the WORST reputation!"

    In my defense, I thought Shadowing would make me sneaky. Karma will fix it.

  • Captain CarrotCaptain Carrot P'burg, MTRegistered User regular
    So, when are we shadowing today?

    Spoiler:
  • A Dabble Of TheloniusA Dabble Of Thelonius Registered User regular
    Good point!

    Running shall commence at 5:30 cst. Same vent info as last time. We'll be sticking to IRC instead of maptools, as it worked pretty well last week. Good practice for our imaaaaaginaaaatiooon.

    We might start a bit late to make room for some folks scheduling, but if we have most everyone there at 5:30 that'd be swell.

    He said with a smirk, as he flipped the nano aluminum plated trash can into the air, and turned it into a death blossom of shrapnel using only his fist, incinerating all those around him by sheer speed, as their blood, did the incinerating.
