Brit is of course Approved, Light! I'd like if you make him currently a part of the team. Maybe he's a new member, and this is his first official race with the rest. Or maybe he's been with them for a little while now.

Its your choice man I can make him a new blood If you wanted. :). what should I do now either way?

Hey Knyghtskye!

Overall your character sheet looks good. However, I would like another racing oriented weakness from Takeo. Currently really the only thing racing wise he is not good at is drag racing. Most of the races that we do will be obstacle course oriented, so I'd like him to have a particular section of the obstacle course he is not strong out. Take off, drift portions, straight aways, etc.

@Light, go ahead and move your sheet over to the Character Sheets thread, then feel free to start posting in the IC

Posting interest, I want to bring an old character from a dead game. I will updating and fixing it to work in this game, but the concept is the same.

I will try to get down on Tuesday, when I am back home.

Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide
Clint Shaw


Age: 27
Height: 6'0
Weight: 175lbs
Hair: Long (currently) an Brown
Eyes: Hazel

Current Occupation: Collusion Repair Specialist (Not formerly trained), Painter, "Gambling Cowboy"

Hobbies outside of racing: Football, gambling,drinking, shooting, grilling and fucking

Appearance/Style:  Clint is not the "trendiest" of dressers and is rather "simple" in his taste. Jeans, boots (cowboy) and cowboy shirts or a T-shirt. He has not worn a suit since his parents forced him to go to church when he was a teenager. People have poked fun at his over sized belt buckle but he takes it in stride, more so when he reveals the back has a bottle opener which makes it easier to pop open some beers and start the good times. He talks with a Texan draw and shows proper manners (attributed to his mother). It rare to see him without a cowboy hat, some traditions don't die.
     
Personality:  Clint works hard and likes to relax hard. When it is time to work he is an efficient machine with a work ethic and discipline not seen in men his age. When work is over he loves a good beer, meal and a football game. He does not like the club scene but does enjoy hitting up a local dive bar for a round of pool (Where he can hustle his fair share of good players) or a local gambling hall or casino. Clint is a "goes with the flow" type guy and is not quick to anger and get crazy but can deliver a mean punch if pushed to far. If there is a rodeo in town you better believe you will find Clint there. Clint does carry a fire arm on him but he has never been forced to draw it on anyone.

History:  Clint always imaged a life outside of Bonney Texas. His father ran the local car shop/gas station, his mother taught at the local elementary school and he was the town football hero. It was the type of town where everyone knew everyone else's business and the only child could not wait to get away. Clint was born carrying a football (or so his father claimed) and played most his life. His teenage life consisted of girls, football and working under his father at their shop. Unfortunately Clint was never much for mechanic work, like math (another failed subject) he understood the basics but excelled in another aspect of car work, body repair and paint. His family encouraged him to pursue both football and auto body repair, unfortunately after an injury in his senior year his hopes of a life in the NFL came to an end.

With his one escape out of Bonney cut short he turned to collusion repair and packed up his truck and left to make his own way after Highschool. Clint ended up in Florida working at a small repair shop as the collusion repair specialist and painter. Despite is lack of formal training, his work was quickly noticed and offers from bigger shops paying more started to come in. A few years of living in Florida introduced him to many things the small town "cowboy" knew little about, the most influential being street racing. Many people gave him shit about driving his truck to late night car shows and races but those who hired him to paint and install their (body) kits always spread the word on his expertise.

In time he got the money for a Nissan 240sx and started to race it, mostly losing until he swapped out an engine and had a few modifications done to the car, the most expensive one to date being a Sr20det engine which pushed the car up to 210hp, 255 once full tuned.

He heard Tampa was a good scene and decided to move out that way. Clint lived in his truck a few weeks while he worked at a new shop, until he met Marcellus Smith and learned they needed a roommate. Clint moved in, met them and made new friends.
 

Current Situation: [You don't really need to fill this in yet until after we've worked out the character histories together. Just a sentence or two if you want.

Car: 95 Nissan 240sx with Sr20det engine and s15 body kit, fully tuned at 255 hp
99 Ford Ranger, Work truck/Daily Driver


Relationships:
Star Freyman
I met Star before I ended up moving in with all of them. She hung out at a bar I visit on occasion to hit on women and ended up beating her at pool a few times. Later I found out that she was friends with Blake the bar tender and any attempts to hit on them was normally rejected, I guess her friend told her about me. When I finally met them through Marcellus and knew they would be my future room mates I pretty much put these two on a "most likely not going to happen" list. It doesn't help that I bring chicks over and I have been caught more than one nailing them on the work shop bench in the garage.
Demi Etherson
     
Juliana Dang
Jewels is cool girl, I met her long before we became room mates doing some body work. I didn't think much of it past that encounter until I was introduced to her and the rest of the people Marcellus lived with. Soon enough I moved in also and we became room mates. Jewels is the princess type, likes keeping her nails and hair done and I appreciate that and days she lays out by the pool in a bikini. Hell, I appreciate when all our female room mates do that. We do have one thing in common, she likes to eat my meat and by that I mean when I grill, not that I would reject her if she wants to saddle up and give me a ride.       
Blake Richardson
I hit on Blake a few times at the bar only to be shot down. I met Star here also, figure the two are friends. I might have salvaged my chances with Blake after I moved in if I had not been caught fucking that Spanish foreign exchange student on the workbench in the garage. We are still cool, I am not sure if Blake shared the story with the other girls, I doubt they have been spared a sight of my ass, I sleep nude and the bathroom is in the hallway.
Jason Sullivan
I met Jason after moving into the house. After learning he was a former solider, I pretty much didn't ask him about his time in the service or any of the details. We hang out as a roommates, share a drink or two but the conversation never gets past idle chit chat. In the garage we tend to stick to our own projects and help each other as needed but the most I can do is hand him tools, I don't get all the electronic stuff.
Adriano Guillermo
Adriano seems cool enough, even when he challenged the cat to a staring competition. We have a few things in common, mostly our hectic work schedules. I think all the guys tend to hang out well together, the ladies are different. We are guys, despite some trash talk on races we get along well and can drink and grill on the weekends. His accent is a little hard to understand but I bet it is a damn good panty dropper. 
Marcellus Smith
I met Marcellus through his uncle at a shop I freelance at once in a while. We went out for beers a few times and started hanging out, he was the first person I befriended since my move to Tampa. When I heard about their plans to move into a house and they were looking for more roommates I jumped in. I been living in my truck for a few weeks beforehand, never really having the time to settle in as I was hustling for work and I had a string of temporary relationships that finding a bed of my own was a big concern.

Me and Marcellus devolved a rivalry of sorts, he is a FWD driver and I have faith in RWD. We raced a few times and we seem to be trading wins and losses. Maybe once I get enough money and get my car to its final tune I will have that edge to give him a nice loss streak. 
Mr. Muffles
I never really liked cats a lot, but this one is alright and has a pussy wagon and I respect that. Jewels doesn't know,  I toss the cat meat of the grill from time to time.

Hey guys!

I am actually thinking of just making him a support character, as in not a racer. I like the idea of being the guy in a truck or possibly a motorcycle.

At the moment, my idea is to have him arrive from Tampa looking to settle in, but if there is some people with that same plot I can work something out.

Maybe, he heard Miami has a better racing scene = more work. He is already well known in Tampa as a great painter body repair guy.

Hey Aiden! Your sheet looks fine, you would just need to adjust it for this game as opposed to the other one.

I'd like to make him someone that is already friends with the main crew. He can be new to Tampa, but currently we've filled out all of the "unfamiliar character" slots.

That works, maybe he has been around. He sticks out like a sore thumb at racing events with his truck. Maybe be new as a racer, keeping his 240sx and debut with a few losses. (Maybe tie into the main group that way, work my way up to that SR20det engine?)

Maybe you don't react well to people overtaking you, or vice versa. In system terms (I use a self created system for each race) it would mean you'd get a negative when trying to pass someone, or when trying to stop someone from passing you.

Kathleen Williams


Age: 21
Nickname: Kitty, Black Cat (Hacker Alias)

Current Occupation: College student with a job in fixing computers.

Hobbies outside of racing: Hacking, Computers, Singing, Writing, Stealing, Drawing

Appearance/Style Description: She has a gothic-punk look at all times. Two tattoos on her body are well known, one of a little devil just above her naval and another of a blonde woman with black wings on the small of her back. Piercings all over the place (lip, bellybutton, vagina, tongue, eyebrow and ears of course).
     
Personality: Aside from her looks, Kitty can be a very nice and loyal person. She loves riddles and is very good at them, she is the type of girl that does not give out easily to anything she set's her mind into. Those who know about her hacking however know very well to not bother her while she is working, when her headset comes in that means leaving her alone and she would make everybody know full well if they decide to bother her.

History: [[Will add more if people want to be related to her]]
Kathleen was born with a very different childhood, at first people thought that she had mental problems as she had trouble communicating with people and often times stared at random stuff for hours on end. She had a very hard school life and had trouble making friends. When her parents decided to take action however they discovered something amazing, she was a calculated genius. The reason that she seemed to stare at random stuff was different but often included some math problem or something like that. She continued with her life in school normally even though she could graduate three years earlier. It was one night while walking that she discovered street racing and since then she has become obsessed with it. She picked up hacking awhile later and became a well known name around the globe as a hacker that often fought for peoples rights.

Current Situation: Current studying mechanical engineering and Science.

Car:



Strengths:

Calm Mind:Learning it from hacking she can keep calm in most situatons. She does not make any rash decisions and thinks everything. When Racing that translate to never freaking out during a race and keeping a calm mind.

Genius: She is a true genius, she can solve math problems easily and will just take a couple of seconds to find a logical solution to just about any problem.

Hacking: She created a entire new persona called Black Cat online, hacking to even the pentagon. She is very gifted in any computers and just a few people knows it.

Connections: Due to her hacking skills she has connections in that area, she is able to get the best deals for computer parts.


Weaknesses:

Socially Strange: Even though she can talk fine now she still have some trouble getting to trust people fully. Not really caring what anybody says about her she is often just hanging out with the few people she call friends.

Too Confident: While driving she can be too confident in her skills allowing her to get sometimes in trouble due to her overconfidence.

Physically Weak: She has no idea how to defend herself and relies on others to often defend her. She is scared of confrontations with people and often times just retreats into her own little fantasy world inside her mind.

OK, so here is my completed sheet! Hope she looks OK? Would love some feedback. I was thinking that Jamie is new to the area and she either runs into someone and gets talking about racing or she meets the group at a first race which she attends by herself? Any thoughts?

Jamie Rosa Mendez


Age: 21 Years.

Nickname: N/A.

Current Occupation: Mechanic apprenticeship. (Though she's done this kind of thing since she was young, so knows what she's doing. She's just not making much money.) She has been fixing up cars pretty much all her life from the age of 4, with the help of her father of course. She also considers herself a formidable driver, though more of a joyrider in it for the adrenaline rush.

Extra Eye Candy: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

Hobbies outside of racing:
♦ Sports/Exercize - She enjoys taking part in things like dance, yoga, kick boxing and gymnastics as well as working out at home and at the Gym when she can.
♦ Dance - Mostly untrained; she did a few ballet classes when she was younger, but didn't keep it up. Her love of dance mostly implies getting down to a heavy bass in a club, rubbing up on someone she barely knows.
♦ Spending Money - Money she doesn't have. Though it doesn't necessarily have to be hers...
♦ Working Her Tan - She loves to just hang out on the beach and chill under the sun in as little clothing as she can manage; she doesn't like tan-lines.

Appearance/Style Description: Standing at 5'2" (158cm), Jamie is a curvy and athletic girl with mixed roots. Those roots being that she's a quarter Mexican, a quarter Taiwanese and half Caucasian. Jamie has long, dirty blond/caramel brown hair that just about reaches the small of her back. Her eyes are a dark brown, almost a chocolate colour. Her skin is tanned; a nice natural shade of bronze. She has a couple of piercings; her bellybutton and her ears. Jamie has one tattoo; a feminine rose and vine pattern along the spine of her back, reaching between her shoulder blades to beginning of her buttocks. She very much enjoys keeping fit and working out, so she a bit more toned than someone else of her stature may be; she does a work-out every night and enjoys going to the Gym when she can. Her style is somewhat promiscuous, though she just thinks it flirty, bubbly and fun, a bit like herself!
     
Personality: Jamie is an adrenaline junkie at heart. She's daring and isn't afraid to try new things. On one hand, Jamie can be a really friendly and helpful person to pretty much everyone. On the other hand however, she can be a bit grumpy at times and refuse to take instruction; she's a very proud girl. She's extremely bubbly and has been told she's quite a likable person; however that doesn't always mean she wants to make friends. Jamie is also a very touchy-feely person and likes to be intimate with everyone if possible. As a mechanic, Jamie is very good at her job and enjoys driving/being driven very much but can sometimes get distracted easily and veer off topic on occasion. She likes to think she's one of the best at her job, but at the same time Jamie really loves to learn new things; not only about cars. All in all, Jamie is a very trusting character, though shes not gullible enough to believe everything that's people tell her. She's a very honest, down-to-earth girl and at the end of the day, she'll tell it like it is; no mollycoddling.

History: Jamie grew up in a loving household that included her mother and father and their 4 dogs; Benny, Patch, Razzle and Jude. The area they resided in wasn't exactly Boulevard Avenue, but it was better to have a house in a shitty neighborhood than not have a house at all. As far back as she can remember, Jamie had always been roped in with helping her father work on his and his friends cars; it was his only other passion other than her mother. She did enjoy the work, but more than the labor, she enjoyed her dads company. Of course, she loved her mum too, but they didn't spend half as much time together as her and her father. Her dad promised her when he'd finished fixing up his beautiful Ford Mustang that he would take her for a spin in it and when he left her, he would leave it to her. Of course, she was extremely excited though she wasn't pleased at the idea of her father leaving her. When she was 16, her father was murdered in a drive by shooting right out the front of their family home. It tore their world apart. Rather than sticking closer as a family, her mother distanced herself and Jamie found it hard to living with her. Her mother even tried selling the car her father had left for her, but Jamie protected it and promised she'd get it up and running so that she could move it to another location. Not only did she feel she wanted to fix it up for herself, she wanted to get it running for her fathers sake as well. Upon her 18th birthday, Jamie moved out of the house to live with a friend in her apartment in the city, taking her fathers car along with her, though it was never completed.

Current Situation: Is already a part of the group and is living in the house with them all between fixing up cars at the shop. Thankfully her housing issue has been sorted, though she's still lower on cash than she would like to be.

Car: A 1992 Honda Civic Si. (Modified.)



Strengths:
○ Her looks - Jamie knows that she looks good and she isn't afraid to use her looks and gender to get what she wants, whether that's winning a race or something else entirely. Because of her looks and her personality, she can also fit in easily with any group, therefore being the perfect 'bait' or 'spy'.
Good with a Spanner - Obviously, Jamie is a mechanic and this helps her not only earn money, but tend to her own car with complete confidence.
○ Determination - When racing, she wants to win and that's just how it is. Her determination helps her concentrate and keep her eyes on the prize.
All-rounder - Jamie has solid fundamentals when driving; she OK at turning, OK at starting a race and OK driving in most conditions. This doesn't mean she has no room to improve, because she has a lot of time to go before she's considered a great racer, but she has everything she needs to get to that point.

Weaknesses:
○ Easily Distracted - Jamie struggles to keep on topic most of the time and if she spots something that interests her, she usually doesn't have much self control in approaching or talking about it.
Sensitive - Probably an understatement. Jamie can be a little emotional and this sometimes makes her reckless during any situation.
○ Lightweight - ...Another understatement. Jamie cannot take her alcohol whatsoever, but this doesn't stop her drinking it and partying it up. She is easily persuadable and will give in to peer pressure easily. This trait often leave her in messy situations.
Slow Reactions - Simply when racing, Jamie can get panicky and is slow to react to things. This can often leave her losing out and that sucks for her, since she likes to win.
○ Drifting - She's not amazing at controlling herself for one, let alone controlling the car in such a way. Plus, it totally wrecks your tires and she doesn't have the cash to splash for that..

Alright, revamped everything and polished where needed. Hope this is okay! Planning on starting her off at the races already when approved.


Olivia 'Violet' Johnson


Age: 21

Nickname: Violet or Vy

Current Occupation: Retail Sales Associate

Hobbies outside of racing: dancing, gaming, partying

Appearance/Style Description: Violet is very keen on being a fashionista, albeit one on a budget. When she sees an article of clothing she likes and its too expensive, she will spend the rest of the day hunting down something similar. Her wardrobe runs from baggy jeans, tank tops, and combat boots to tiny skirts and belly shirts and 'fuck me' pumps.
     
Personality: Violet is a woman with little to no filter on her mouth. She speaks her thoughts, no matter how unnecessary or crude they may be. She is an avid fan of cursing and raging, especially when someone pisses her off. That being said, her loud and boisterous nature is what makes her so much fun to be around and party with.

History: Olivia is a Miami native who has had to work hard in order to receive everything she has. Her parents unfortunately passed away when Olivia was 15, leaving her and her younger siblings in the care of a stern aunt and uncle. Fed up with their rules and how they ran the household, Olivia worked hard throughout high school and received a scholarship to the nearby university. She wanted away from them and if going to college was an option, she was sure as hell going to take it. She still feels a little guilty about leaving her brother and sister behind, but she tries to go by and see them often.

Olivia was introduced to the world of underground racing only two short years ago through her friend Takeo, who she had known since her freshman year through a matter of circumstance. Olivia soon found she had a knack for drifting and regular circuit races, which tended to draw many drivers with lots of cash. Olivia's first race she brought in with a huge load of her scholarship money. When she won that back and them some, she realized she was hooked. During the days she picked up a job at a local fashion boutique, where she would use her earnings to fix and tune up her vehicle.

Current Situation: Work and working on refining her kickboxing skills

Car: 2010 Mazda RX-8 (Matte violet paint job)



Strengths: Persistent: She will never give up or stop at anything to achieve what she wants.

Drifter: While not the best drifter in the entire world, she is certainly not the worst. While she enjoys a traditional race, hugging corners and curves bring on a huge adrenaline rush.

Speed Demon: Put the peddle to the metal and lets burn burn burn!

Dancer: There is something in the way she moves...

Weaknesses: Road Rage: To say that she doesn't take losing well is a bit of an understatement. She has been known to get quite aggressive if she feels like she has been wronged or cheated in any way, which quite frankly happens often.

Wears her emotions on her sleeve: Olivia is not unlike an open book, expressing or displaying her emotions in such a way folk always know how she is feeling. While it makes her easier to deal with, some have been know to take advantage and manipulate her.

Loose Cannon: Olivia's penchant for the danger has gotten her into trouble more than once. While not exactly a felon, she understands that her disregard for the rules of the road are to blame. This however does not stop her from trying to have some fun.

I still plan on putting a character in, its just been a rough weekend.  I'll definitely have him up tonight.  He's going to be an American driver from Pittsburgh with a police record and gambling addiction.

Pink cars are all the craze these days.

@Divine, Approved!

@Snorkle, your sheet looks good however we already have enough "new" people. Go ahead and retool your Current Situation to reflect that you are already a member of the Miami crew, and living inside of the Beach House with them.

No worries! I'll do that (: Wasn't sure so it was worth a shot, haha.

EDIT: Is that OK?
