 Well since we seem aimed towards a more CSI style with a mix of ass kicking, action, and investigation....

 All over the Soul Society, spirits have been going missing. For the past month, over a hundred souls have vanished. It has been limited to the poorer districts, for the most part, so no fuss had been made. But in the last two days, spirits in of of House Bourbon's estates on the border with Albion (England's Soul society) have gone missing. In response, Roseille d'Bourbon has formed a Special Investigation Division to find out just what is going on.

Okay, so for the reason we met, we say we formed a task force to investigate and deal with the missing souls. Shall we convene and decide how our characters are connected, for example, the opinions our characters hold?

 Goofed up a slight bit on the sheet, forgot Aspects.

 For a character, you only need to worry about:
A High Concept
Quote
First, decide on your character’s high concept. This is a single phrase or
sentence that neatly sums up your character, saying who you are, what you
do, what your “deal” is. When you think about your high concept, try to
think of two things: how this aspect could help you, and how it might make
things harder for you. Good high concept aspects do both.

A Trouble
Quote
Next, decide on the thing that always gets you into trouble. It could be a
personal weakness, or a recurring enemy, or an important obligation—anything
that makes your life complicated.

Another Aspect
Quote
Now compose another aspect. Think of something really important or
interesting about your character. Are they the strongest person in their
hometown? Do they carry a mighty sword known through history? Do they
talk too much? Are they filthy rich?

 Figure out your six approaches. Each approach is rated with a bonus. Choose one at Good (+3), two at Fair (+2), two at Average (+1), and one at Mediocre (+0). There are some example setups in the section.

 I THINK that is it, for now. I'm sorry I'm so bad at explaining this, I'm a really crappy teacher :/

 edit: it would be worth it to take a loot at Fate Core as well. That has examples of play, more explanations on how things work, etc. FAE is designed as a quick read.

How I did what?  I just put in my basic concepts where indicated, and followed instructions about the plusses.  At any rate, the pdf is available here.  http://www.faterpg.com/  It is fate accelerated.

Not entirely sure how well I did, and tried to fit her approaches to match her personality as well was something we were missing. Very small and light girl would be not too bad at sneaking, is the rationale.

Haha. I suppose I'm going to take the rather aloof approach, but with a "whatever it takes to complete the objective" attitude.

 Sorry guys, I'm going to be a bit distracted for the next week (watching my little brothers while my mom and other brother goes to pick up yet another brother from Submarine School in Conn), which means I probably won't be able to get an IC up for another week.

Oh yeah. Something I should have asked about before. How is this going to be executed? Usually for the pen and paper people gather around with dice and paper etc. in several different sessions. I assume we will be doing it on the forums etc. but it seems like it would be strange. A turn order, perhaps?

 OOC is up. I'll be putting up the character thread and a brief IC soon, rather sapped on energy to do much with it right now :/
