Ahh, that is what they are calling it now.  :)

Well Agatha is 23 and single, Irish and works with volatile machines.  I'm sure that makes her the unsavory type in most eyes in the Wild West.

Sorry dear, you are so deliciously unsavory it hurts. ;)

Marcus is not an unsavory type, he is far from an outlaw.

Margeurite isn't unsavory!

She's the very top layer of the cream of society, she's attended balls in both White Houses and she's been presented at Court in London.  She's even visited Paris, France - with her father and against her mother's admonition, but still!  She rides as well as any cowboy, but she sits side-saddle, her manners and her dress are impeccable.

Never mind those nasty rumors coming out of the Chinese slums in Sodom, they can't possibly be true.

PRESENTED at Court.  Technically, that means formally introduced to the Queen - though for Margeurite the whole affair was rather impersonal.  She only saw Victoria in the Audience Chamber, as the Queen elected not to attend the ball later that evening.

Oh yes we will.  I am sure Marguerite will be a topic of conversation at Ladies Tea, as will the slums.  Marguerite is too yummy not to bring up

The OOC Thread is now up, as are the related Doomtown threads promised earlier.  Please feel free to post your Public Knowledge sheet, if your character has been approved.

By the way...

What is "Veteran o' the Weird West"? 

It's a 0-point edge so I imagine any upside is balanced by a down-side.

It's a mixed bag - it grants bonus skill points, but it also comes with a completely random flaw.  There's a particular story requirement to earn it, so in the interest of not divulging spoilers, I'm preferring that only players who are familiar with and have played Deadlands before take it.  The hindrance can be pretty crippling; things like insanity, blindness, the loss of a limb, a 5 pt enemy...

I believe I shall have to throw my hat into the ring. With all of these freewheeling women and their improper attitudes towards behavior and knowledge, I imagine Gomorra could use a fresh young schoolmarm.

Just as a general note - I'm intending the game to go live tomorrow, but that should in no way deter people interested in joining or creating characters.  The more the merrier.

I saw this and wanted to say that I'm looking forward seeing her around.  School marms are always fun, especially in a town such as Gomorra.   :-)

It would be fantastic to have a character with connection to Gomorra's schoolchildren. Onneca is a civic-minded character and I've already hinted at her love for the local children with the bodega description here: http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=167462.msg7849213#msg7849213

It would also be excellent for Onneca to have some sort of friend or associate who wouldn't approve of her lifestyle, as so far everybody she knows seems to potentially be just fine with it, and I would like to represent the attitudes of the times in some way so that her angst makes sense. More harsh words, fewer coming out parties with a saloon girl popping out of a cake.

I agree Dhi.  I fully expect Agatha to have trouble from others regarding her sexuality.
