Oh, I like this idea...
I might go for it:)
You'd be welcomed, and if you do go for it, there's cookies. (Further expanded on in my response to Valerian.) :)
Illusions could work, with some limitations. I'd like you to expound upon a few that she can do almost without flaw that will fool most of the people most of the time. Any illusions that she tries outside of those few might still succeed, especially against only a lone victim or two, but are harder for her and more prone to failure, especially against crowds.
I hate to be cruel, but since you are so new to E and have so few posts for me to judge by, consider an exposition on how you would see her illusions working, what her strongest ones are, and her limitations to be an entrance exam for the game. If you write clearly, strongly, and with conviction, then I shall gladly invite you, especially if you can make me feel the deliciously sinful quality of your character. In other words, convince me.
It's not that I want to be a snob and be exclusionary, but a new multi-player game is a fragile thing, and a fly in the ointment at the start can be the death knell. My cruelty to you is a kindness for the whole. I hope you understand.
*panics* I know I shouldn't add another game, but I suddenly have this uncontrollable urge to play a sweet-looking, soft-spoken ingenue who has an uncanny knack of getting men to kill for her. Or maybe people (not family, of course) just always end up dead in her vicinity, and she can never imagine how or why it happens...
Valerian, I shall not twist your arm to anguish, use torment on your mind, or even sweet seduction to recruit you to our macabre family. One must enter with an open mind and an open heart and prey that they are not consumed... in the bad way. Your ideas are pure and dark, and radiate sweetly. If you join with us, there are girl scout cookies, of an ancient and secret family recipe. They are to die for.
*laughs* Interesting call Valerian. I was thinking of playing the family 'rebel', a young, normal looking guy who tries so hard to fit into mainstream society... which is why he has to hide his extra set of arms. Or, if that is too supernatural, maybe he just makes anyone outside of the family really uncomfortable with his little quirks that family life instilled in him. And everytime normal people rebuff him, he returns to the lovingly deranged embrace of the only ones who accept him.
Something along these lines could certainly work. I'm not sure about the four arm thing, but it could work, so I do not deny the concept. I've seen some of your writing, and you sold me with, "Fear sweat clings to her naked legs". Fear sweat for the win. :)
Yes, I'm picky because writing, especially for a group, is work. Working for free in my spare time is only worth it if the enjoyment is great enough.
Anyway, as to posting rates that I'd expect from players... Slow games bore me and make me loose interest. Games full of one-liners or with little character interaction bores me as well. I put up no strict guidelines, but I'd hope to see a post per player every day or two. I'll post as needed, but in all likelyhood will put up a major post once or twice a week. We all have real lives of course, and my expected post rate may be overly ambitious, but I hope not.
