Looks like we have a great motley crew here to begin the adventure.

The next step is in choosing your adventuring partners.  You can form whatever groups you want...or adventure solo.  This is a GM-led story, so I will make sure you have plenty of adventure regardless of the choice you make.

I'm aiming to kick this off Wednesday 10/10.

I’m usually on evenings, and some late afternoons, with the rare all day.

I can see Brie, having had interaction with most of the people listed before the Dark:
Jessica Cooper – Doctor: visited place of work, either ER, or Office.
Timothy Rayne – Electrician:  Could have done some work on the wiring at her place of work.
Arthur Richards – Convenience Clerk:  Store where she buys sodas and snacks, and the occasional TP, close to work or home.
Christopher Phoenix - Aeronotic Mechanic: actually I’m stumped here lol
Rachel Greenbaum – Pickpocket, Thief, Junkie: number of possibilities, found Brie different drugs in her experimentations, picked her pocket…
Lancerious Trouwers – Tracker: her poaching phase possibly, or ran across him while on some other nature curiosity.
Reia’s char: dunno until I see the write up lol

So, I am open, or can fly solo, though I must admit, partners make it easier to be creative.

Excellent.  Since were segueing from recruitment and proceeding into casting and other pre-production planning, I have established a thread for such discussions here:
http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=154215.0

The game is still open to newcomers, but the recruitment "window" will be closing shortly...

I can do solo then meet up with a group is fine with me.  Are you going to be starting us off in certain places? I was looking to tie my character in properly I was going to have him home on leave from the service when shit hits the fan.

Depends on who you team up with.  I'll pick the starting locations based on the outcome of those discussions in the Pre-Prod thread.

Sorry it took me so long to get this in, but here's my character. Will she work?

Bailey Laurent
   
Player name: Reia
Character name: Bailey Laurent
Gender: Female
Age: 22
Height: 5'7"
Weight: 115
Occupation: Art/Music Student, Con-artist/Escort


Description

Physical: She's Tall and thin, giving her a bit of a delicate look. Her red hair and blue eyes help her stand out in the crowd, as do her clothes. She dresses in vintage clothing that have bright colors and patterns, often her pieces clash but she manages to pull it off. She also carries a large canvas bag (her friends tease her because of how huge it is) that slings over her shoulder and she never leaves home without it.

Personality: A definite spree-spirit, she often skips her general education classes to go exploring - be it on campus or around town. She tends to jump from one thing to another and the only thing she's stuck with for long is her music and art. Baily is sweet and kind hearted, always ready with a smile and a laugh. In many ways she's a bit of an innocent and tends to view the world with rose colored glasses, though she's learned how to use this to get what she needs. She also has a fiery temper and if pushed, can easily explode. She doesn't have any close friends and tends to be a bit of a loner.

Background: Bailey is the only child of two eccentric hippies. Her parents own a large bit of acreage and she lived there all her life. She was homeschooled and hadn't stepped into an actual classroom until her first day of Freshman year. Her parents were both into music, classical only, and made sure that Baily was familiar with at least two instruments. Fortunately for them she grew to love playing the violin and piano. Out of the two, however, she much prefers the violin, as it allows her to move around.

When it came time for university, Bailey decided she wanted to try living out in the real world - something her mother still hasn't forgiven her for. When she first arrived in town she was wide eyed and fascinated with everything. Not much has changed, though she doesn't quite find every little thing as amazing as she used to.

At school she's doing a double major in art and music, but she has a hard time sitting still for long and actually paying attention. She's a good student and does well - though she tends to miss class more often than not.

When she first started school she tried working and realized that adhering to someone else's schedules and rules just wouldn't work for her and quit job after job before giving up on the whole work thing altogether. After a two months of not working she fell behind on her rent and had to find a way to pay her bills. A girl from one of her art classes mentioned an escort company and Bailey decided to give it a try.

It took a while for her to get any clients, but after a while she ended up with regular men, and women, that would pay large sums to have her on their arm. She also learned how to use her apparent naivety to con them out of even more money. Since then she's been able to live a simple, but comfortable life.

At the time of the black out she's on a cross-country trip and the bus she was riding broke down on the highway.

Additional Notes:
Baily is often quiet, but once you get her going, it can be hard to shut her up.


Skills

PRIMARY skill (1) (what your character is BEST at.  CANNOT be martial.):
Con-Artist: Using her looks and perceived innocence to get what she needs/wants. This isn't fool proof, but it usually works.

Major skill (2) (things your character is GOOD at.  One may be a martial skill, but CANNOT be gun-related):
Farming/Growing Food: Given how she was raised, this is a natural instinct for her.
Off Grid Living: Growing up she didn't have anything electronic and learned how to do things the "old fashioned way."

Minor skill (5) (things your character can do with reasonable competence, though not excellence.  Three may be martial skills, two gun-related):
Horse Back Riding: She knows how to ride well enough and can somewhat stay on a horse at high speeds.
Swimming: A fun sport that she does to help her relax, she can do a basic free-style stroke and float.
Running: Another fun, relaxing sport for her. Her technique leaves a lot to be desired, but she can hold out at an even pace for a good distance.
Carpentry: Hammering things together is easy enough, though her designs aren't always that sturdy.
Fishing: Her father always despaired when it came to fishing with her, but she can catch at least one out of five fish.


Elliquiy stuff

Sexual orientation: Bi-Sexual
Limits: Scat, Vore, Extreme Gore, Being submissive
What I want out of this game (i.e., "rape and pillage," "find out stuff," "plotline," etc.): Have fun, find out stuff, plotline, learning to deal with a world where there are no electronics

Edit: Changed one of her skills to better suit her.

Still got room for one more? :D

Player name:      Steppenwolf
Character name:   Gloria Rorschach
Gender:         Female
Age:            22
Height:         5'7" (170cm)
Weight:         110lbs (50kg)
Occupation:      Small-time drug-dealer
Description:      Sharp; single-minded; wily and ingenuitive. Gloria comes from a well-to-do background, which she spurned in her youth having fallen out with her parents, and since the age of 17 she has been fending for herself. She never really had to work; she left home with a comfortable bank account, and having initially turned to stealing whenever she needed money, she has for the last 2 or 3 years been selling cannabis, and occasionally pills and cocaine. She is morally very flexible, and sexually feisty, if a little submissive. Her hair is dyed red and she has green eyes. Her measurements are 32C-25-35.



Primary skill:      Lock-picking.
Major skills:      Tae Kwon Do (red belt); seduction.
Minor skill:      Stealth; climbing; running; swimming; pick-pocketing.

Sexual orientation:   Straight
Limits:         Scat & watersports.
What I want:      Plot & development; I'm open to my character being raped or abused, anal sex and group sex though it's far from necessary.

So…. When do you think it’s ‘ok’ to lose morality and start shooting people with a crossbow? Day three-ish?

Speaking of your character...do any of the existing threads appeal to you?  Or do you want one of your own?

I pictured her waking up and the power being gone; nothing more. If you'd like to assign me a thread, I'll fit into it. I guess she could have her own thread, or she could go to the OnCue Mart to get fresh food when she realises that the outage is going to lead to rotten goods, or anything else you fancy. I'll adapt!

In an urban apartment. Where were you planning on placing most of the action? Will it be mostly urban or suburban, or a mixture of both? My character can live in an apartment in either, in an ordinary block of flats. Amenities are within walking distance, the area is nice - not hugely expensive but certainly a nice and pleasant area.

It's going to be a mix.  Maybe the apartments are behind the OnCue store?
