    My character isn't turning out as I envisioned (my fault). Going to try a revision tomorrow and see if I can get it right.

    Okay, I am back from the Edinburgh Fringe, have gotten job stuff on the move and have recuperated enough to think about this. We're climbing back on the horse here:

    Tami

    I would like an update on your character and whether you are intending to play.

    Lord Falcon

    Got a couple of points that need addressing:

    1) We're going to need to have some highly significant conversations over PM regarding your backstory because while... this is all... technically possible to have, it will need a certain amount of discussion and potentially shifting some stuff around as I have my own Russian mob stuff going on which would drastically effect things you can and can't do in game.

    2) So your power is effectively Moody Blues from Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, is that how it works?

    3) Socialising is effectively a Charm skill, right? Or did you envision it being a broader skillset?

    --------------------------------------------------

    Once I've finalised these two characters, I'll drop gang breakdowns into the thread and start workshopping PC specific stuff over PM.

    Then we can kick off.

    Sounds good to me...

    I think I'm going to back out. I'm just not happy with my character and I can't get her background to work out. Sorry about this, Nik.

    I've cleared out some space in my PM box, Nik. Fire away!

    Ooh, I don't watch Jojo so I didn't know such a similar power existed in a mainstream series. Nice. Yeah, Moody Blues is pretty similar.

    Talisa has to mark get close enough to mark a target person or object, and the target stays marked after she goes away. She then can watch events in her mind's eye as if she was tagging along beside that person object (rather than physically reenacting events) but only up to 24 hours in the past from the point in time she marked the target.

    Yeah, I guess Charm is a good word for the skill.

    Quite all right, sometimes it's not meant to be. I'll remove you from the cast list.

    It's normal that I haven't gotten a PM, right? It's been a while since you said you'd start PM'ing players so I'm just making sure it's not a case of there being a msitake.

    Nah, I felt it wasn't right to move onto workshopping until the cast was nailed down.

    At present, workshops haven't begun. Once I finalise Falcon, then we get to that.

    In at least one fictional world, you just stated you would assassinate Falcon. ^_^

    I just saw it as Nik building dramatic tension.

    That said, I am not so tired that I can't make things happen. PMs have been sent to some of you so workshopping can begin.

    Hoopla baby!
