Due to circumstances beyond his control my dear friend Ehlamjanx has been forced to withdraw from the game. This leaves the top slot open. While the game can and will continue without a lead detective, I would far rather have someone in that role.
There are three options available:
1) The character created by Ehlamjanx is available for another player to take over as is. Not only is this mandated by the game rules of play, but EJ has expressly given permission. Players are allowed to post in their own style, of course, but in this option I would expect the player to try and keep the character's personality as consistent as possible.
2) If a player likes the character of Lt Gunselman but feels they cannot play him as is, I will consider allowing a revised character with the same name, but with different attributes. This has already happened once in the game with the character of Cassidy Locke. If you would like to take this option, please submit a revised character sheet to me by PM for approval.
3) I will also consider a totally new character, who can be assigned by the chief of police (played as a NPC by myself) to replace Gunselman, for a reason I will come up with. Rules of character creation as detailed in the opening posts of this thread apply, obviously. Please submit a character sheet for approval.
If I get more than one applicant I will consider them on relative merits. If I only get one (or less) over this weekend it will end up being "first come first served"The character sheet for Lt Frank Gunselman can be found here.
Obviously, please read the rules etc at the start of this thread before applying. If you are able to glance through the IC thread and Case File thread too that would be helpful. You don't have to read the entire OOC thread but reading the first two posts there would be a good idea. If you wish to take over Lt Gunselman, either as-is or modified, you will need to read the IC and Case File threads before posting IC. If you want to create a new character then you could, in fact, have your character "read" the threads IC, as a new lead detective taking over the case would probably not know any more IC than you know OOC...!
