Added a little tidbit to the list about the cell destroying vaccine and added some detail to what I mean with "likes" and "dislikes" in the character sheet template. Also added some info about day 1 and some of the goals the characters will have.

I'm still looking for more players, so anyone interested is free to apply, should they wish to join. :)

Name: Isabella Sophia Vescovi.
Gender: Female.
Date of Birth: 17th February.
Age: 21 years.
Occupation: Student.
Place of Residence: Lives in Marche, near San Marino in Italy but is studying abroad in New York, New York, USA.

Appearance: Isabella, or Bella for short, has a petite frame with a slight hour glass figure. Although the term is used more for bustier women, she considers herself to be that shape because of her small waist, making her hips rounder and bust more noticeable. Her skin is naturally sunkissed and she enjoys keeping herself well groomed and clean, yet simple, without applying much makeup. Her lashes are naturally black and thick, creating an effect of volume (though she still enjoys applying mascara and eyeliner occasionally.) The only noticeable thing on her body would be a small scar on her abdomen from a surgery to remove her appendix which she had when she was in her early teens.

Hair: Dark brown reaching to her waist/mid back.
Skin: Tanned.
Eyes: Chocolate brown.
Height: 5'2".
Weight: 110lbs.
Body Build: Slender yet toned.

Personality: Isabella is often told she's a light at the end of a tunnel, though she doesn't take compliments well and never knows what to say to that. She is bright, bubbly and friendly to everyone she meets, whether they be a homeless person on the street or a high class business woman too busy with her working day to be polite. She always, always tries her best to help any situation. This has lead to her being very stubborn. When it comes to hard situations, or even just watching a sad movie, Bella can be extremely emotion and she isn't afraid to show said emotions. Her friends sometime refer to her as an open book, so inner termoil is definitely not her thing; it's all allowed to the surface. Often is she found listening to her friends, families and even strangers problems and she always has decent advice to give them in return. This cannot be said for herself, however. She struggles to help herself once she's in some sort of trouble and can never go with her own advice. Although in some aspects she is very independent, in others she needs guidance and someone to rely on. Because of her travels and studies, the brunette has a willingness to learn and enjoys being taught new things. Bella is terrified of failure as a result of her life morals and cannot accept it in any way. She also feels that if she has started something, even if she really, really hates it, she must complete it to the best of her ability.

Postive Personality Traits: Friendly, Charismatic, Loyal, Polite, Great student.
Negative Personality Traits: Stubborn, Easily frustrated with herself, self conscious, Hard on herself, Emotional, No self control.

Motivations: Isabella wants to see the world. She wants to learn, see, hear, smell and taste new things; she wants to experience new things. This is one of the reasons she has started studying abroad in America -- her first stop on her world travels and now possibly her last.
Outlook: When it comes to her surroundings and other people, Bella is very optimistic. It's a different matter when it comes down to her. She can be quite hypocritical and is quite pessimistic to or about herself/situations involving herself. (This isn't to say she would cry and throw a fit when people are around, she would try to be optimistic most of the time, but really she wouldn't be so sure or confident and when by herself or with people she was most comfortable around she would be quite down on things.)
Sexuality: Bisexual.

Interests/Hobbies: Reading, Dancing, Exploring, Trying new things, Thrill seeking.

Likes: American food, Clothes, Shopping, Sweets, Exercising, Coffee, Romantic action movies, Lazy days in front of the TV.
Dislikes: Make up, Fake tan, Windy days, Being ill, Hospitals, Needles, Taking medicine, Ignorant people.

History: Isabella was born to an Italian household and a big family consisting of her mother, father, three older brothers, two older sisters and two younger brothers. Her mother and father were childhood sweethearts and had been together since their school days. They were always madly in love and still are to the present day, as one could tell from the amount of children they have had together. Bella and her siblings were also very close to her mothers side of the family and often visited them in Rome where she enjoyed always begged her father to take her to see the architecture of the beautiful city. Her childhood consisted of love, excitement and fun even though they weren't the wealthiest family.

It was only in her late teens that she started realizing what she wanted to do; travel the world. Isabella managed to get herself a part time job at a coffee shop in the center of town and worked as often as she could, trying to save up the money to take her studies abroad. In her early college years she was offered a scholarship of sorts and paid a small percentage of her tuition and travel fees to study over in New York, America. It was hard, leaving her family, but she knew it was something she wanted to do with her life and it was a perfect start to her travels.

America was different to how she imagined it, but ultimately she started adjusting well and things began to become easier to her; she was always great at English anyway. She stayed on site at her college with a roommate who was from Washington, USA, and the two became quite close friends within the first few months. Sadly, the girl had to go back home within the first year because of family problems and Bella's roommate was replaced with another female student who she didn't get on with very well at all. Luckily, the girl was hardly ever around; too busy partying and drinking with friends. It wasn't long after her roommate was replaced that the virus had started to spread and life as she and everyone else knew it changed forever.

Hi, Rainbow! Fancy seeing you here. ;)  Btw, I really like Isabella.

Alright. Looking foreward to see what you can come up with! :)

I have a character that I'd created a bit back and haven't had the chance to really play in mind and am working on her profile. Quick question: Is it okay if she's a college student as well? I just realized that with Rainbow's character, there'd be two.

Also, I love the way you have the game organized with certain plot points already worked out and everything. :D

Alright, finally have my character set up. Let me know if any changes should be made. And I hope it's okay that I added a small section at the end where i list what she has on hand with her.

Bailey Laurent
   
Name: Bailey Laurent
Gender: Female
Date of Birth: -
Age: 22
Occupation: Art/Music Student, Con-artist/Escort
Place of Residence: Cheap, off campus apartment near her university

Appearance:  She's Tall and thin, giving her a bit of a delicate look. Her red hair and blue eyes help her stand out in the crowd, as do her clothes. She dresses in vintage clothing that have bright colors and patterns, often her pieces clash but she manages to pull it off. She also carries a large canvas bag that slings over her shoulder and she never leaves home without it.

Hair: Red
Skin: Fair
Eyes: Blue
Height: 5'7"
Weight: 115
Body Build: Tall, Thin

Personality:  A definite spree-spirit, she often skips her general education classes to go exploring - be it on campus or around town. She tends to jump from one thing to another and the only thing she's stuck with for long is her music and art. Baily is sweet and kind hearted, always ready with a smile and a laugh. In many ways she's a bit of an innocent and tends to view the world with rose colored glasses, though she's learned how to use this to get what she needs. She also has a fiery temper and if pushed, can easily explode. She doesn't have any close friends and tends to be a bit of a loner. Also, Baily is often quiet, but once you get her going, it can be hard to shut her up.

Postive Personality Traits: Easy going, fun, friendly, inquisitive
Negative Personality Traits: Short/hot tempered, too inquisitive, slightly naÔve‎, likes taking the "easy" or "fast" way out of things
Motivations:  Exploring. She lived a slightly sheltered life before college and she wants to learn as much as she can about everything.
Outlook:  An optimist, Bailey always sees the good in any situation. That, however, doesn't mean she isn't aware of when things are going really badly.
Sexuality: Bi-Sexual

Interests/Hobbies:

Likes:  Music, art, walking around and finding new places, sharing her creatings with others.
Dislikes:  Being pressured, assignments, having to do her art or play her music as her professors instruct, being limited in any way.

History:  Bailey is the only child of two eccentric hippies. Her parents own a large bit of acreage and she lived there all her life. She was homeschooled and hadn't stepped into an actual classroom until her first day of Freshman year. Her parents were both into music, classical only, and made sure that Baily was familiar with at least two instruments. Fortunately for them she grew to love playing the violin and piano. Out of the two, however, she much prefers the violin, as it allows her to move around.

When it came time for university, Bailey decided she wanted to try living out in the real world - something her mother still hasn't forgiven her for. When she first arrived in town she was wide eyed and fascinated with everything. Not much has changed, though she doesn't quite find every little thing as amazing as she used to.

At school she's doing a double major in art and music, but she has a hard time sitting still for long and actually paying attention. She's a good student and does well - though she tends to miss class more often than not.

When she first started school she tried working and realized that adhering to someone else's schedules and rules just wouldn't work for her and quit job after job before giving up on the whole work thing altogether. After a two months of not working she fell behind on her rent and had to find a way to pay her bills. A girl from one of her art classes mentioned an escort company and Bailey decided to give it a try.

It took a while for her to get any clients, but after a while she ended up with regular men, and women, that would pay large sums to have her on their arm. She also learned how to use her apparent naivety to con them out of even more money. Since then she's been able to live a simple, but comfortable life.

When the virus starts to spread and panic ensues, she gives up on school all together and packs her bag, grabs her violin, and heads out into the city to enjoy her last few days.

Theme Song(s): It's one of her favorite pieces to play, Lady Grinning Soul.

She's carrying: In her bag - large sketch-pad (11"x14"), drawstring bag full of drawing pencils and erasers, small wooden box holding all her x-acto knives and blades, her vintage zippo lighter, iPod, flip-flops, socks, 2-3 novels, wallet, homemade lip-balm, 35mm film camera, extra rolls of film, large 32oz sports bottle filled with water, fruit, homemade granola, nail polish, an original GameBoy, and some clothes. She also has her violin case with her.

I'm in. If there's still a spot  open when I wake up....I've been up almost twenty hours now.



I have the perfect character for this.

Offline Moon Hound HatiTopic starter

Reia; great character! I'll add an equipment bit to the character sheet template. That was a good idea. Any players that have sent in their completed sheets already can sent me or post here what stuff your character is carrying at the start of the game. It's not mandatory though and you could just put some sort of description in the first post if you prefer.

DTW; Welcome aboard. Looking foreward to see what kind of character you have in mind.

I'll probably close active recruitment some time this weekend and then wait for all the character sheets to have been submitted. That probably last until next Wednesday or so. If I haven't even heard of people who haven't submitted any sheet yet by then I'll assume they've dropped out. In the meantime I'll start preparing the IC thread and such, as well as my own character.

I just want to give everyone a heads up that I wont be able to post anything on Saturday, so being that I'm the scientist, that might get in the way of things. I'm going to be travelling for about 18 hours that day, so I'll not have a chance to pot anything, except maybe really late at night (at least where I will be it will be late).

Offline Moon Hound HatiTopic starter

All Saturdays or what do you mean?

No no, just this coming Saturday. I'm flying across the Atlantic ocean :P

Offline Moon Hound HatiTopic starter

Well, no problem then, right? Like I said, I'm just gonna stop actively recruiting (this doesn't mean I will stop accepting new players), and will wait till Wednesday for the last character sheets to pop in. :P

Ah, alright well, no worries then :D

Thank you! And glad I could contribute. :)

Will be posting my own character sheet sometime soon. Got a good idea for one.

Also, as a reminder, I will be expecting people who haven't sent in their sheet to have done so by Wednesday. Otherwise I'll assume you dropped out. I don't really want to waste time chasing up on people before the game has even started. :p

Hello hello,
I was just wondering if I missed the deadline to get in this play. I read that you were talking about closing the recruitment, so I figured I would ask. I love the idea and have an interesting character idea. Anyway, let me know and I can get the CS up real quick. I knew I should ask before I just put one up. Anyway, let me know, I've been interested in a group play for a while and this is very interesting.
Thank you,
