How's this?

Jane Dent


Jane is an average female human of the average age of 29 earth years. She lives an average life in a average village in a average European country called England on an average planet called Earth. She grew up an average life, with average parents, went to a average school, made average grades, on to an average college, where she earned an average degree. Then got an average job at an average radio station in average London. Before 3 years ago where she moved to the average village to get away from the average city. All in all, Jane is very average, and there's not much especially interesting about an average Jane.

In fact, she's quite boring. Most of her friends are in advertising, she's not much fun at parties, she tends to be a bit of a Debbie Downer about life. Actually, being why she left London. Jane has an worrisome habit of worrying too much, and for a person of worry, such a city is just too worrisome. So, in the hopes that she would reduce her worry. She moved to an average English village.

Not only that, but there was a nice little average local radio station there.

So, she begin an average country life in an average little white house, on a average green hill, on the edge of an average little English village. But little does she know, that her life is soon to become very unaverage, much to her dismay.

Horray. We still need three more. The Trillian arch type doesn't have to be from earth per say, just a brainy person that actually knows how to run shit.

Given Trillian's relationship with Zaphod, I want to know who is playing the Zaphod type before committing myself.

Or I could be Zarniwoop?

I'm still in, and I'm pretty sure Russ is still in. Can't really speak for him though

I'm undecided.

Seriously, it depends on who ends up as the Zaphod type.

Perhaps I should do Zaphod, instead? The character is rather more important than Trillian - who disappears at the end of the first Radio series and second book...

You know, Trillian and Zaphod don't have to have a relationship. Like Nicci said, she just has to be the only one who can make stuff work. No reason to be totally cannon with all of this.

Also, there's other options

The only real characters in the book were Zaphod and Dent. You need zaphod for the crazyiness and Dent for the dead pan english viewpoint of everything that is going on and finding it just tedious overall.

Exactly. They are the driving forces in the books, and I am still in as Dent. Rereading the books and everything.

I just picked up the first book to reread the trilogy in four parts. I agree Zaphod and Dent are the main drive but they need Trillian quite a bit and it wouldn't be the same without Marvin and Eddie.

Well our lovely GM is gonna play Marvin and Eddie. Then I'm sure we'll get another Trillian. I'll check in with our Ford when I catch him around

So are we going to start this some time in the near future? If I'm accepted as the Zaphod type that is?

What do I have here? 2-3 players? Would like to get 4 to cover the 4 main character arch types. You cannot just forget about Ford and how fruity he was.

Also I've read all 6 books, the audiobooks, and the radio series multiple times.

We don't have Russ for the ford type? Alrighty I don't wanna jump the gun just excited for it. I'll have to hash out a character anyways.

We might. IDK. I'll find out. Give him a reminder. If we do then that just leaves the Trillian type.

So...I'm a big fan of the movie, but I haven't really read the books or listened to the radio show (I didn't even know there was a radio show :( ) However! I'm a huge fan of sci-fi, I really loved the movie, I enjoy comedic relief, I consider myself a competent writer and would be willing to put forth the research necessary to make a great Trillian (Zooey Deschannel is gorgeous btw) :) [I have a towel in my trunk]

Let me know

Is any roles still up for grabs or am I too late for the party? Just reread the series and though 'Man, I should totally make something on E like this!' and then this showed up.

4 ,I'm pretty sure Russ is on a Hiatus from RP'ing in general. Real life I think got to him, as it does so many of us
