So, yeah, getting back to it, sorry for the delay. Now let's see, first, answers:Dashenka
: Thank you!IrishWolf
: Hello, dearest stalker. I like your character concept. Using a pretense to tag along, which is entirely legitimate. I can see him with a nice mix of level-headedness sometimes bordering on laziness, and feistiness still. So, a colorful character!sinfultictac
: I like Brent! If I knew you'd make such a character, I probably wouldn't have put in the cartographer amongst the NPCs, but the way it is, it should make for some nice collaboration. Both with that specific character, with the two other character having a naval background, and so on. Beaches and shores ahoy.
On a side note, I find it both nice and funny that assuming mid twenties as 25, and late twenties as 28, the average character age so far is slightly under thirty. I'm pretty sure some MILF-themed games have lower results. I find that pretty cool personally! More on the dramatis personae later.Drake Valentine
: I am absolutely not opposed to the concept of your character. It's interesting, thoughtful, sensible, open to interractions, and can lead to interesting times. Fun ones too! However, there may be some alterations you'll have to make I fear. I hope your love of constraints won't give in for these few little things.
The first and most obvious one is that there are no orcs in this game. The closest I can allow is a typed ethnicity that are nicknamed that way. But it'll basically be a human still. If you worry about the lack of racial prejudice this might entail, just read a newspaper or two. Of course, if it's the contrary, that the proximity between real-life racial prejudice and in-game interhuman racial prejudice that worries you, just say so and I promise I'll consider more comfortable options. The second little issue is regarding your master. It's an important part of your character, so I'd appreciate a few guidelines since, unlike Zasha, you still depend on him or her. Or for that matter, how much freedom do I have with the creation involved.
I think thee was some other thing but I forgot, and a re-reading got me nothing, so let's go with that already
So, let's review our characters so far.
Briar Bloodthorn, Valkyr guard, shemale, lesbian, sailor.
Erik Carther, human trader, male, straight, salesman.
La'Ora, half-elf scout, female, bissexual, trailblazer.
Talin West, Westernesse bard, male, heterosexual, rumormonger.
Jahaari Mund, human apothecary, male, bissexual, doctor.
Zasha snowbourne, human maid, female, unknown, "entertainer".
Brent Bullwood, human sailor, male, heterosexual, mapmaker.
Gogrim, TBD slave, male, heterosexual, pit fighter.
Unknown, TBD liquor dealer, male, unknown, bountry hunter. Unknown.
Six males, two females and a shemale. Which is quite surprising for a game where I said I wouldn't myself handle erotic relationships involving the bearded gender. But, in a way, that means I can put all the more efforts exploring both the sense of wonder, adventure, trade, and interpersonal relationships that don't involve intercourse. Because they totally exist!
So, if there are still lurkers, or just people that noticed this thread, you're welcome to opt in and pitch your character, but for now, I'd like to try to at least set up things with the present cast. Of course, if half of the cast got bored of the idea in the meantime, or if you're offering a Co-GMing role, that's different.
So! I'll create an OOC chatter thread and a character thread, most likely tomorrow. And I probably will start a first thread about as soon too. Either relating to small bits of personal stories, or directly the first travel thread... I'll ponder that on my end. Of your end, keep being awesome! And feel free to chime in just because.
