  • Passion is a feeling of great intensity toward a particular person or activity. To love something or someone with a passion means you feel almost a burning drive to be involved. Loves; passionate by nature and by choice, driven to explore my imagination.

I'm excited to join.  I've decided to make the young ladies fresh nurses, I think they might have more opportunity in the story as a whole That way.

I just have to look up the ages that a nurse might be back then to start in the hospital. Also, is there a hospital named already in the game?

Here is some information I found on nurses in the time period for the game.  I will have my ladies as nursing students in one of the hospitals, if that is alright.
In the early 1900s, the autonomous, nursing-controlled, Nightingale-era schools came to an end. Schools became controlled by hospitals, and formal "book learning" was discouraged in favor of clinical experience. Hospitals used student nurses as cheap labor. In late the 1920s, the women's specialties in health care included 294,000 trained nurses, 150,000 untrained nurses, 47,000 midwives, and 550,000 other hospital workers (most of them women).

Sandelowski finds that by 1900 physicians were allowing nurses to routinely use the thermometer and stethoscope, and in some cases even the new X-ray machines, microscopes and laboratory testing. Nurses for the first time could supplement their subjective observations with scientific tools. Most nurses remained at the bedside where they used the new technology to gather information for doctors, but were not allowed to make a medical diagnosis. Their subjective bond with the patient remained their primary role.

I was thinking to build an Conartist/pickpocketeer, youngish woman, down on her luck. (Older brother who was her guardian, dying in the War and bank taking her family house under her) SHe was forced to seek some work in the city, not really finding anything (and way too proud/moral) for prostitution. All she was good was talking to people, and from there, she learned ways to get what she wanted, working oddjobs here and there, conning Jhons.

Would that sort of character be accepted?

Yes, that's fine. You can find our rules and some other useful links in the first post of this thread. If you have any questions, either ask them here, or PM Kane and me about it.

There are always open slots. Depends on what you'd like to write.

I'll have to give it some thought, then I can compose a character, submit it and all that business.

Sounds good to me. There's links in the first post of this thread, for the rules, character creation, etc. If you have questions or need anything, just ask here in the thread. :-)

Figured I post it here.

We've got a post count (updated once or twice a week), can be found in the Plotting Thread.

Just wanted to put that out here. :-)
