    Well, looks like everyone is on board. While at PAX, I'll probably spend some of my downtime writing up shizzle for this. I'll post a final schedule sometime over the weekend. Also, check your private messages. I sent you guys a little more information about character creation. :winky:

    Hey all, haven't posted in this because I didn't know the thread existed until this morning.

    I'd like to get in on this, if I can work the schedule around my family. Most weekdays are good, the later the better. (Bonus points if it's after the kiddies get to bed.) I'm PST, so I realize that starting at 9:00 my time is probably not reasonable.

    I'm leaning towards the Occult Scholar, but I need to check out my options a bit more to be sure.

    Any squishy character wanna convert to a Mech/Engel pilot to even out the groups a little bit? A 4/3 split would be nice. <3

    Playing a semi-sinister Vampire Tager for OiS is awfully tempting :twisted:

    When we're you thinking of running each game?

    Inbetween the two Tagers, an occult scholar, and a psychic soldier, the normies are starting to sound more like an Eldritch Society force than an OIS one.

    Okay. First off, Squishy Group is tentatively meeting at Thursday 6:00 PST/9:00 EST. Is this too early or too late for anyone? Please let me know. <3

    Second, Engel Group, there are two of you and Saturday evenings look like they work well for both of you. Unfortunately, if we want to get the group up to three, we probably won't be able to do it on Saturday. ProfMoriarty, you said you can only do it Saturday. Any chance you can do it some other day? If so, let me know. If not, I'm fine with running a two person Engel group on Saturday evening at say 8:00 EST?

    I wrote up an intro story while at PAX and I'll edit it tomorrow and then post it tomorrow. That will start the IC thread. Please engage in some free form PbP action. The thread is, ideally, for role playing involved with the more dramatic aspects of the game. These include character's personal objectives, intragroup dynamics, etc. The IRC sessions will focus on missions that the characters are engaged in.

    Also, regarding the multitude of Tagers in OIS, in the section on the Eldritch Society, it mentions that they have formed back alley relationships with GIA. I assume that this is likely to extend to OIS as well, so that's the hook we're using. If it becomes an issue, I might change it, but that's what we're sticking with so far.

    Unless you want to delay until 8:00 PST/11:00 EST, I can't do Thursdays(I could do up a squishy character fast enough.) Otherwise, I can do Mondays and Sundays.

    So I've been thinking I might want to switch over to a mecha pilot, seeing as how my intelligence agent would be the only (relatively) normal guy in a team of space-mutants and mindbenders. And to even out the ratios a bit more.

    Well, Jeffe is playing an Occult Investigator. If Rainfall switches, he may go with a squishy-type. OIS does need normal peeps.

    Engel group is gone. :( But now we have a six person squishy group. Pick whatever you want to play as long as it is human sized. Don't worry about the wealth of Tagers and such. Also, you can be a sorcerer. OIS sorcerers are bad ass because they get legal access to all sorts of cool texts. ;)

    Now, as far as time, is everyone comfortable with 8:00 PST/11:00 EST? I know it's fairly late, but I can stay up if you guys are willing to do so. Unfortunately, with everyone's schedule, it seems that Thursday is really the best night.

    I can make Thursday at that time, but I'd prefer not to if we can work something else out. 11PM EST is later than I'd like.

    Also, a pox on you for dropping Engels.

    Just out of curiosity, would you be cool with a White Xenomix, Kakos?

    Because otherwise I was just thinking of a Tager or a normal human, but a White Arcane Investigator could be fun times.

    EDIT: So I made a white xenomix character just for kicks. Here you are!
    Name: Nevy
    Race: White Xenomix
    Profession: Federal Agent Allegiance: OIS
    Defining Virtue: Peaceful | Defining Flaw: Insecure

    Actions: 1
    Movement: 9mph (22/5ypt)
    Reflex: 6
    Orgone: 14/14
    Vitality: 11
    Drama Points: 10

    Agility 6/Adept
    Intellect 7/Adept
    Perception 7 /Adept
    Presence 4/Novice
    Strength 4/Novice
    Tenacity 8/Expert

    Language: Novice (Nazzadi, English)
    Literacy: Adept
    Regional Knowledge: Novice
    Computer: Adept
    Criminal: Novice
    Law Enforcement: Novice
    Observation: Adept
    Occult: Novice

    Dodge: Novice
    Marksman: Adept

    White
    Authority/3
    Nightvision
    Duty: OIS/2
    Shadow Walker
    Chronic Pain
    Alluring/1

    Para-Psychic Abilities 1-Sensory 2-Environmental 3-Somatic
    ESP: Student | Psychometry: Student
    Cheats:
    Erupt Psychometry – 2
    6 Skill Points – 3
    Increase Orgone by 2 – 1

    Background: Nevy may not be the best field agent in the OIS, but she has a talent for finding the clues on the crime scene. Quiet and unassuming, she does the job she's told and rarely goes above and beyond, which has left her in a low-ranked position throughout her career, even ignoring the fact that she is one of the rare White Xenomixes. Her peculiar genetics do make her an unexpected agent of the OIS, though, and her Parapsychic abilities have been key in cracking a few cases.

    Appearance: Nevy, like all White Xenomixes, is white from head to toe. Small and slight, she keeps her hair cut shoulder-length, and tries to blend into the background, although her unique genes make that almost impossible. Still, she has that allure that all Xenomixes share, and when she smiles she can become truly beautiful, but those smiles are rare. Long white scars across her back testify to a childhood of abuse, and when nervous she rubs her fingertips along them.
    Nevy tends to dress in all-white clothing, in the usual Nazzadi styles, although she lacks any form of Nazzadi tattoos.

    Hmmm. So, I am reluctant to allow a white xenomix because of the timing. The game will take place in 2085, so the oldest white xenomix character can be is 18. However, they are unusual and do have some peculiar gifts which would make them desirable to an organisation like OIS. So... I guess my answer is "let me think about it." I'll get back to you sometime tomorrow. However, in the mean time, throwing up a alternative character might be wise.

    So, it is Thursday (or close enough) morning and I am going to say that the game is going to happen at 8:00 PST/11:00 EST. What we do will depend largely on how many people show up and what people show up with. If everyone shows up with a character, we'll start playing. If not, we might spend this first session discussing characters, the group dynamics, the setup, etc. So, be there or be square.

    The location will be IRC @ irc.slashnet.org, #cthulhutech

    Portable Computer (tricked-out PDA)

    Cheats: 12 skill points - 6

    Appearance: Several occult symbols of warding are tattooed along her neck, her naturally red hair is streaked with darker read, making it look like she just stood in a spray of blood for a few seconds. Claire's eyes are an entrancing hazel, and she dresses to maximize the advantage her nigh-perfect figure gives her, while still managing to hide most of her lightly-tanned skin.

    Background: Claire works as an undercover investigator for the OIS, after having gotten caught at the early age of 16 trying to facilitate an illegal trade between two big players in the market. Most of her old pals still don't know that she's gone to the side of the law, and she uses that to her advantage, although it's put her in a few tight spots when she needs to choose between her cover or her duty to the NEG. Still, like most people in the OIS, she has a vague idea of what the stakes are in this war, and she doesn't want to let the world down... unlike her father, whose reputation is a constant black mark on her record.

    There are certain things that can bring a man to the point where no one single life no longer matters anymore, for Willem Venroe that came with the eradication of his family- with the exception of his son. Who now instead of being an innocent boy would be seen as Willem's chance at vengeance- a avatar of retribution against the Migou.

    Already a scientist within the Ashcroft Foundation, the death of his family drove him to new heights within the scientific community and eventually would lead him to come into contact with a promising scientist by the name of Anton Miyakame. While Miyakame was still a relative unknown , Venroe saw great potential in the group he was now a part of and devoted his heart and soul to the development of the Engel project. To the point of even using his own son for testing of early synthesis interface models.

    When it became clear that these early test pilots were not compatible and could never be of use to the foundation or the NEG. William essentially disowned his son; the disappointment that his son would no longer be part of the revolution of the Engels was something William could not handle.

    With little formal training or education outside of his father's private tudoring and tudors , Arrik had very little skills he could put to use in the real world. The NEG army seemed like his only option .....

    But he is intercepted by an agent of the Eldritch Society who also serves as an NEG officer and looks through Arrik's odd history seeing *potential*. He offers him "special" training still under the pretense that he is within the NEG army. After months of training, the group of young men were sent into the field
    only Arrik came back.

    The officer seemed disgruntled , not at Arrik, but at the situation . But an odd smile came across his face, well at least we have one candidate..."Perhaps its time I show you something"

    Within months, Arrik had been made aware to the situation of the Eldritch Society and their shadow war. And with the vouch of his recruitment officer under his words "Whereas you may not have been meant for the Engels, perhaps you were meant for something higher." - he soon underwent the Rite of Sacred Union.

    And he came out with the vampire symbiote now apart of him.
