You probably read my little rant earlier about how we don't need a companion, but we can certainly have one if we want. And, it's been established that "readers" exist in the Firefly universe as well. However, as useful as it might be in real life, I think that may be a bit much for this game. Maybe a Companion who isn't a reader, or a reader who in all other respects looks like a down-and-out vagrant? I don't know, don't let me tell you what to play, but I think she's too perfect.
Quote from: NiceTexasGuy on December 16, 2011, 11:47:57 AMAlso, her strengths and weaknesses. I don't really see being a good companion as a weakness, for one thing. I can see where it would limit her options in some cases, but that's like having large muscles won't allow a guy to reach into a small gap between walls. It may be a limitation, but it's certainly not weakness.

Quote from: NiceTexasGuy on December 16, 2011, 11:47:57 AMAlso (and this isn't just directed at you, Kaya) is I think there's a natural tendency when creating a Firefly character to fill him or her full of angst. Sure, there's crime, there was a war, etc, so it's to be expected. But at the same time, what fun is a ship full of emo characters?
Quote from: Teke on December 16, 2011, 04:31:26 PMAs for Kaya's character, while I do think that she indeed might be a little too... overpowered would be my word, much like Ruby's initial character(or rather, still standing character). I mean, she's a registered companion AND a reader. That pretty much could be the definition. However, with her backstory she could very well be the most wanted person in the whole 'Verse, if Kaya is willing to change a couple things. So, Kaya, see what you think of these.1. The accident was not covered up, and instead she is being actively hunted for the man's murder.2. The Alliance's secret military does know she is a reader, and either was already secretly using her as a spy(she doesn't know), or want to bring her in to use as one.
Quote from: Teke on December 16, 2011, 04:31:26 PMAlso, I would hope that at somepoint, or repeatedly, she takes on customers whose minds she reads contain either really good or really bad news concerning the ship or crew, but because of that credo, she won't tell them, and instead probably tries to take care of it herself, which may lead her into trouble and needing to be saved.
Quote from: Teke on December 16, 2011, 04:31:26 PMAlso, it could be interesting when she has another "accident" involving a high profile person in the outer worlds, and we have to somehow dispose of the body and get away from someone because of it. Last thing, if she is JUST getting outside of the core, she will have absolutely no contacts out in the black, so she's not going to be all that good until she starts making contacts and getting referrals. Just some thoughts!
QuoteMaybe the charges the authorities have on Bel aren't that serious (or rather, not something they can make stick?) but they want to arrest her and make a deal hoping to turn her against Chang.
Quote from: lore on December 17, 2011, 03:35:42 PMI think I might throw together an app for a surly doc with a good heart but a bedside manner that leaves something to be desired.
Quote from: NiceTexasGuy on December 16, 2011, 06:14:30 PMHow would she be getting referrals or doing business by electronic means if she's wanted?
Quote from: Teke on December 16, 2011, 06:18:41 PMAs for her getting work while wanted, I think that then leads to the secret military storyline better. She was able to slip out of the core and maybe now she has to change her name, but they don't know where she is, so even though she stand out, they're not hot on her trail.
