A couple of things. We've been getting great character proposals and truly appreciate the effort everyone's putting into their characters. With that in mind, I'm leaving this thread 'Open' through Friday Night for folks to have time to finish up any proposals they're working on and submit them for consideratation. Over the weekend through Monday we'll be working with you here and I see us making a decision on who's moving onto the next stage of things on Tuesday at the latest. As an FYI the next stage involves clarification of powers and integrating the approved characters into the game, meaning hashing out connections with other characters and finalizing bios and reputations and such.
Only thought it was fair to give everyone a heads up.
Now onto a bit of feedback:
@ Juggtacular - I like the edits to the bio and Flaw, nicely done. Thanks for answering the questions posed to you, and here are couple more for you:
- How often does he throw parties?
- How does he both excel in classroom and at sports?
@ Sephora - Maya is a very interesting character, love the writing sample and the fact that she's an uber-jock, including the poor grades. Koodos on a flaw that will spark RP, as a lot of characters can be tasked to help your character/help her slack off. Re: Power choice, I'm ok with a power copycat but would rather not see someone who 'takes away' another person's powers... It'd make her a buzz kill to play with super-wise... NOT to tell you what power to take but a 6' tall, faster as the wind weather manipulator would be kind of cool... Especially since it would draw her 'out of type' as it's not a physical power in any way... But there's lots of places you could take her.
@ JamesSureWould - There's a lot of fun to be had in Cameron. Yay! Theatre geeks! I like how you wove the flaw into the writing sample and his power sounds fun too (Why hire a cast of thousands when you have me?) I do need you to think about how the OCD will spark RP... I see it as a fine Personality quirk, but the purpose of the Flaw is to open up RP with other characters... I'd be happy to be proven 'wrong' so share your thoughts on that, or think of some other part of him to highlight for this
@Batman4560 - Ryan has potential and is nicely written, but I have the same concern about his Flaw(s) as I do for Cameron. They're all cool for character depth and 'color' but I am not sure how they'll help start RP with others and they're all over the map. Could you focus on one thing and draw it out, meaning talk about how it would help serve to engage others in RP with him?
@AribethAmkiir - Nichole's proposal was really well written. I was going to ask you about the flaw but you expanded on it nicely in your bio and I really liked your writing sample. I would like to ask you to 'pick a type' to focus on... Girl Next Door feels like her 'look' and attitude (maybe - very approachable and likable, etc) so highlighting her Artsy-ness would be AWESOME and spark a lot of RP.
@Birchleaf - Looking forward to seeing what you come up with for the Class President, it's very much a role I'd like to see filled by a player :)
