I know Vim, I have seen him around before. He is a good writer. He can make a smooth character in any background. And although sex may be his final goal, he can go the extra mile and describe in detail how he got there. (And the 'how he got there' is what you want, the story.)
I do have an issue with him, though: Vim, you tend to hug the spotlight and screentime. You are very active and start a thread with every character. That's not how this is going to work. It stifles the roleplay and intimidates less active players. So if you want to play, play nice. Participate in one exchange or maybe two, but not more. If you feel bored, vent your excess energy in another thread. Don't hog this roleplay.
PS: I have decided to play the captain myself. This seems to be the only way to give this group of drifters and misfits a sense of direction and keep the roleplay on track.
I don't think I've ever gotten the impression that I stifle roleplay or intimidate others.
If anything I've seen roleplay slow to a crawl when I'm inactive and pick back up when I become active again.
If I like a game, I do get into it, and my goal is to include others, not scare them off.
I was interested in the captain partly because no one else wanted to play him.
I'm still interested in the game. I love Firefly, I haven't yet gotten a good Firefly RP on E, and I really enjoyed previous RP with Caela.
Not playing the captain opens up a whole bunch of new possibilities, but I will come up with something. Since we seem to have a full crew (captain, pilot, engineer, muscle), I'm thinking of a passenger, either a female Companion or a male former soldier turned bounty hunter. Either character could hire the ship's services.
Just to clarify, it's Vin, not Vim.
