Anyone got any recommendations for a face claim of a Native American character? I'd sooner slit my wrists than look for any of the ones from the Twilight movies but I can't think of any others in the right age range.

It was easy for me as my character is only half native american. Though I do see how hard it may be for you. But as far as face claims go, sorry I dont really know. Perhaps just look up native american actors, or native Americans in general? Sadly there just is not many native american actors. Perhaps Adam Beach? The guy from Cowboys and Aliens.

How old, roughly, do you want the face claim to look?

This one's pretty good, I'll go with it. Thanks. I also disliked Cowboys vs. Aliens so I wasn't really thinking of using it as a source. Good call. If I ever get the chance to see A Million Ways to Die in the West that might also have a few new faces.

Anyone else who has a character sheet in the pipeline?
If so, let me know when/if you might be able to send it to me.

Updated the map with some more locations.

Still waiting for at least one more CS.

Those of you with approved characters can start planning their opening posts.  :-)

This game had a bit of a hiccup, what with RL rearing its head, but it's getting going again.  RedEve has graciously accepted my help with  a bit of co-GMing to spread out the load and time commitment a bit.

We've had a couple of players drop out, and things are going to start heating up quite soon, so this would be a great time to get involved so as not to miss anything.

If the thought of fighting zombies in the Old West is at all intriguing, throw in your hat, fire off a shot, or just let out a Yee Haw!  Or ... ya know ... just let us know what sort of character interests you and what you'd like to see in a game like this, and we'll see what we can do.

Male or female preference for new characters?

Of the current posting characters, I believe we have:

Doctor - female
Sheriff - male
Deputy - male
Storekeeper - female
Rancher - male
Outlaw - female
Farmer/Rancher - male

So either one, really, and there are still quite a few buildings / likely professions in the town that have yet to be filled.

Westerns always catch my eye. Color me interested!

And if the town is needing, I'd offer a female barkeep as my character. Every good dusty town needs a watering hole!

The Red Ruby Saloon doesn't have a barkeep as of yet, so that's certainly a possibility.  If you are interested, please email a concept to both RedEve and myself. :-)

Keep in mind that the earliest settlers only arrived in 1851 and the name of "Crimson Springs" as a proper town dates back to 1854. All significant growth population-wise would only have occurred after the Civil War ended.)

Is this one still looking? Been peeking and kind of have an idea that may work, but not sure if this is still actively seeking players.

If I may make a suggestion, someone might want to add a link to the IC thread on the first page of this thread.  There is a link to the OOC thread and the Character thread, but no link to the IC thread, which I had no idea existed until I went to the OOC thread today.  So if anyone wonders why Seth hasn't done anything on the IC thread, it's because he didn't know there was an IC thread already in operation.  And I didn't bother visiting the OOC thread until today because I thought it wasn't going to be very active until the IC thread had been created.  Silly me!   :-[

Well this certainly seems intriguing! I don't know how I missed it before!  :o

Still accepting characters? How active is the cast? I noticed there were a couple of posts in just today, but before that some posters seem to be more sparse than others.

And while I'm at it, how far into the game is everyone? ^^

The game was quiet for a while due to my absence from the forum. It's recently started up again, thanks to GypsyRose's offer to co-GM.

So yes, we are still accepting characters.

We are not far along yet, the big bad has yet to be revealed, though there is the start of an event in the game right now that might give a first clue as to what is to come.

That's a rough format for the sheet.  Please PM your concept to RedEve and to me. :-)

Also, characters that are in town or close to town, and have a reason to work together will offer the best fit, so that the action isn't spread out over a wide area.
