Sorry! Actually Shepard is not a available character for story reasons.

I have updated the recruitment thread to reflect the addition of stats that was made at the beginning of our current arc.

Is this still recruiting?  I have so many great ideas now that I've noticed this!

I'm not 100% sure, so I would leave it up to a GM to answer. If it is open, though, then welcome to GPaW, and I look forward to any character you pick! :)

Its probably because there is already a Male Shepard.

"We'll bang, okay?"

I said it. Dammit.

Jokes aside, it's possible. GMs will likely keep whatever happening with that guy/gal secret for a bit, though, since there probably can only be one Shepard around.

What's the gender balance between characters like at the moment?

I picked a list of games that give me options from both genders, so either is fine.

For now, my top list is this, and I'd like some feedback to see which is the best option.

X-COM: Enemy Unknown - The Volunteer.  A personal favourite, this.  I just love the new XCOM remake. Can be either gender.

Xenogears - Fei, Elly, Billy or Emeralda.  Gives options for both genders, and different skillsets as well.  A physical beast, a magic monster and two differently diverse options.  Also a longtime favourite, and I never liked the new Xenosaga as much as I did the original Xenogears.

Nasuverse - Like from Melty Blood series.  Plenty of options there for both genders, and some of those are seriously diverse in their powers.

Sanctum series - Any one of the Core Guardians. Both genders available, and this is a more support-technical bent of Protagonist.  This one made the top list because of the many, many hours of fun I have had with my friends playing this on LAN.

Those are the top 4 contenders at the moment.  I've got plenty of others under consideration as well, but I'm probably going to go with something from one of these.  Thoughts?

Only one of those I've heard of is xcom, because someone has an xcom character. Doesn't keep you from picking xcom, just so long as your choice isn't Megan Chulski lol

You should make what you want. Male or female. You don't want to be stuck playing a character that you're just not that into.

:) but that's my opinion.

That's probably the other xcom, the XCOM: The Bureau.  I'm going with XCOM: Enemy Within.  Anyway, I'll be working up a sheet for Xcom's Volunteer, Shaojie Zhang then.  Decided to go with him, as his backstory is more interesting to me than Annette's.

Is character submission via pm to Lobster?

Also, regarding the stats, is it 4 points you can distribute as you like in addition to 1 starting point in the 4 stats, or only those 4 starting single points in the stats?

Anyway, I'll get to work on this.  Should probably read some of the story threads written thus far too.

Since Megan (my character) is a Psionic like Zhang then you might be interested in having his intro be him Meeting up with Dr. Heinrich Dresner. An X-Com scientist (from the Bureau) who has a device allowing him to locate Psionics.

And stats start out like this....

Strength: 1

Agility: 1

Stamina: 1

Power: 1

Reputation: 0

That's a blank template, basically. The 4 points are additional, add them as you please to any of those values. You can also add to Reputation if you would like.

Okay, character submitted to review.  If it passes muster,  then it's time to start thinking where to make the intro.

Since Megan (my character) is a Psionic like Zhang then you might be interested in having his intro be him Meeting up with Dr. Heinrich Dresner. An X-Com scientist (from the Bureau) who has a device allowing him to locate Psionics.

This is not a bad idea, at least the Dr. would want to speak with Zhang at some point, as he is very unusual for a human psychic.
