Iridium, still open for your character, soon as I see them I'll post them in the Approved Characters. :)

So, feel free now to come over to the OOC thread and let's move to next step shall we? ^^

I don't think he'd mind one or two extra people for the sake of turn-over just in case :3 I'm not entirely sure how many people he officially has at the moment either.

My concept is basically a Xenobiologist/Face. A rather attractive woman who can be both a medic and a scientist - Also tasked wih cataloging the native wildlife and flora for optimum exploitation. She is, however, not really a combatant.

Noted, I was just trying to get the thread together last night... ^^;

Raziel;
if you get a character sheet together, you will be much welcome! As Amarlo says, the more the merrier as we all know how Group Games can go later down the road. I plan on reopening recruitment here between each Mission anyway, though we have yet to kick off with the 1st one, so lets get a big old crew going and see who makes it through. :)

Iridium, she sounds great. I was looking through and kckolbe was right, we do need a few more sciency skills. I'm eager to see what you come up with. :)

I'd be keen to give this a go - just downloaded the Void PDF and I'll have a look over it! Are you still up for more people?

And if so, what kind of role is most needed at the moment? I'm pretty flexible, probably leaning towards playing a female character but could do male if needed more.

Background:

Born on corporate-owned Venus, Mei-Li hails from the Cherion Medical Conglomerate - A company with a keen interest in (and substantial wealth from) tending to the medical and psychological needs of spacefarers, always on the lookout to corner another share of the market. The daughter of a minor corporate functionary, Mei-Li's parents had enough pull to get her into the Cherion Conglomerate's prestigious medical program, which she took to like a duck to water.

To the surprise of her family, rather than join the corporate grind, Mei-Li chose to sign on with the UWC Wardens instead...Possibly to get away from the all-enveloping aegis of the corporations, or just to strike out on her own and see the world. While trained as a researcher, her primary role is that of the ship's doctor and counsellor - A reassuringly amiable presence, her striking beauty has made her job substantially easier...Or at least made more a rather effective bedside manner.

Despite being a decent shot with a handgun, Mei-Li isn't really a combatant. She prefers to avoid the 'rough stuff' whenever possible, though she'll be more than happy to patch up her side afterwards. The novelty of her new life hasn't quite worn off, just yet, and she's actually quite upbeat about things...Though that might simply be her relative lack of experience talking. 

Equipment:

ACC-44 Holdout (Or possibly a Heavy Pistol, if she's really expecting trouble.)
Medical Kit
Wrist Computer

We're actually even at the moment, though if Raziel joins with a male character we could do with another female to once more keep the fields even, so that works. :)

I'd say another Investigator would be good. I'm making an Enforcer to join the crew and keep the Mission continuing and debug any problems. We'll have three Enforcers, two Researchers now with Iridium's lady, but only one Investigator. I'd really like another one if you could help with that. :)



Iridium, Mei-Ling is amazing! I counted only 50 skill points, so I think you forgot to add your 3 pts in Homeworld skills to her skill list, otherwise she is great and approved!

I'll get to posting her in the approved characters thread once I know what you're doing with the homeworld skills and if you wanted to make any quick edits to her skill list because of that, otherwise feel free to post in the OOC thread and get to making bonds with the other characters and sorting out what gear Mei is going to be purchasing for the Mission! ^^

Great - lock me in for a female Investigator. I could make her be the pilot, perhaps? I'll get working on a character sheet, hopefully sometime in the next 24 hours :)

We could definitely use a pilot.  Mine can handle co-pilot/astrogation duties, but definitely is not the one you want in control.

Hello and welcome to all!

The characters are currently setting off to land on Mars for their first mission after being briefed... I am after a few masculine characters to fill a gap formed, ideally I'd like to take on two new players in the game, who'll be local Martian agents who meet up with the rest of the crew upon landing and join in their Mission.

The game is only a few pages in and no-one has much time to bond yet, so it's a great time to come and join in! We are a moderately active game with a great party of crew members!

If interested, pitch me your character here, check the approved characters thread and why not have a go at making up a character sheet! The Void is Pay what you want as a pdf rpg corebook and everyone involved in the game is social and cool!

The game is active, but if you're eager for some SF and horror, please come and join us! ^^

I'm interested.  I'll need to download the source material and give it a quick read.  Just to start I'm leaning towards a medic (a male version of the doctor from Outland) with a few unexpected skills.  If your crew includes too many of the researcher/medic types, I can go with something more combat oriented.

Offline Amarlo

I personally think a combat medic would be great if you wanna go in that direction!

We do have someone who specialises as a medic, it's hard to say exactly what I think the group needs, though your character will be standing in for Eric having moved on from us, so I think it's best to look at the approved character list here and see where you could slip in and excel. :)

https://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=230075.0

I do think the crew needs more bridge based and face skills, though having a combat medic would be good with those things. I look forward to see what kind of character you cook up, either post them here or PM me directly. :)

Offline Captain Whitebread

And now, for you viewing pleasure.......


Name: Liam Kithcannon
Age: 35
Ethnicity: Caucasian (Welsh)
Homeworld: Mars
Height: 6 ft
Weight: 200 lbs
Hair: Brown
Eyes: Hazel



Profession: Investigator
Physical Description: At six feet tall and two hundred pounds, Liam should stick out in a crowd.  He doesn’t.  Somehow he manages to blend in to almost any environment, cruising around the edges of a crowd.  He can best be described as 'non-descript’.  People have a hard time picking him out of a line-up or remembering exactly what he looks like.
 
Personality Traits: Liam is a people watcher.  He doesn’t miss much and his memory is like a steel trap.  He never gets lost and he’s never late.  He’s quiet, almost shy and most people take his silence as a sign of limited intelligence.  He’s anything but stupid.

He prefers the silence and utility of bladed weapons; the never run out of ammunition and they never put holes in the windows that keep the unfriendly atmosphere at bay.  If all else fails, he’s got his fists.

Liam does his best work in ‘civilized’ places.  He’s not a fan of being away from the safety of the controlled atmosphere of the containment domes.  In his spare time, he enjoys cooking for friends.  He's widely known for his spectacular pastries.

History:  Liam became a cop because he thought he could make a difference.  When he realized that he was doing nothing to stem the flow of illegal narcotics, he resigned and moved into the private section.  He had developed a  knack for spotting things when he was a cop; that ability served him well as a bodyguard.  This, combined with his ability to pilot almost anything, drew the attention of the Wardens. 

He’s still trying to stem the flow of illegal drugs, even though he is aware that he can do little to affect the flow.  His efforts do little to slow the raging tide.  It doesn’t mean he won’t throw a courier or two out the nearest airlock, or send the dealer to the nearest doctor for a new kidney.

Good stuff! :)

I'll look him over with a better eye in a few hours when I'm a bit more refreshed and that. That being said, on a quick look over he looks like he'll make a great addition to the crew. Things are going at a pace I'm feeling should match well to your approval that Liam can meet up with the crew when they reach Martian soil to join in nice and smoothly. :)

I think we can fit one more man in.

We already have a guy who is a bit of an Engineer, but there are a whole shed-ton of skills and things to specialise in, including multiple Engineer type skills. I recommend looking at the other Approved Characters first and then making up somebody so that noone's thunder gets stolen.

That said, there are currently 8 crew members now, two of which are NPCs, so I'd say check the pdf out and see where your character can fit in, one NPC will be placed on the back-burner and with yourself, 8 is doable for a crew.

That'll be it for now then. :)

I'll keep things open for others to apply, though people will be back-ups until I feel it's best to slip them in after yourself.
