Hmm. Lawyer, Real Estate Agent, Student; with a probably arts degree of some description. I'd say not knowing each other makes most sense.

I'll try to finish tonight.

I dunno, a Real-Estate man knowing a lawyer doesn't sound that outlandish. ;)

Depends on type of lawyer; but it was all knowing each other that seems a bit off.

I would like for Ashley to already know at least one of you when the game begins if possible.

She goes out most nights looking for vampires or demons to slay.  Albeit, solitary vamps or demons.  As a normal human she knows her limitations and isn't going to pick a fight with a horde of them.  If your character goes out hunting, you may have ran into her.


Or...have you ever been injured in an accident?  Did the insurance company of the moron who caused the accident try to pay you next to nothing?  Did you hire a lawyer who relentlessly harrassed the insurance company until you got the settlement you deserved?   If yes, you may have retained Ashley's legal services before.

Who likes booze?  Alex's time is spent on a few different things, including some monster hunting on the streets (downtown Brooklyn is very safe these days), but he also works as a bartender at a nice place in Battery Park.  It's not glamorous, but it gives him enough money for a place to stay, no one asks too many questions, and every now and then the right sort of people come through to pick up some interesting information.

The bartender seems more likely. She couldn't possibly afford a lawyer even if she needed one.

Lack of money wouldn't prevent you from hiring Ashley.  She takes your case for zero money up front, then her fee is 1/3 of whatever settlement she gets you.  She gets you $3,000, then $1,000 of it goes to her.  She gets you $30,000, then $10,000 of it goes to her and so on.



Ashley's been known to have an after work drink.  I think her knowing Alex from stopping in to his bar could work.

Barry's a habitual drinker. The place being non-glamorous would actually make it more likely that he'd swing by after a long job or a tough break- he'd be looking for a bar where he could belly-up and get a drink, not a nightclub.

Seems like we might have a winner.

How about this:

Everybody knows Alex before the game starts since we've all been to the bar before. Then when all four of us meet for the first time, Alex will recognize everybody and handle the introductions.

I feel like we're in the wrong RPG system.  After all, we're all meeting in a tavern... :D

Given this universe example would be we all meet in a cemetery, I like the avoidance of the stereotype!

Next time I run DnD, everyone will meet in a cemetery...

What actually might be interesting, is that not everyone knows the same person.

For example, if Barry does real estate for renters and for people.. on the poor side, Daphne could know him. And he knows Alex. And Alex knows Ashley as well. Daphne's got depression issues; not drinking issues though. Daphne's not a regular or social drinker; so it seems somewhat unlikely that Alex would know her that well.

More
"Her? Yeah, I've seen her around from time to time. Don't really know her deal though."

Rather than

"Oh yeah, that's Daphne. Let me introduce you."

That scenario sounds fine by me if Barry's player can work with that connection to Daphne.

I see no objections.

So, are we all cool with Daphne's recent suggestion on who knows who?

Barry does "specialized" real estate. Some of that will, at the end of all that, be low-rent. Or small. Basically "affordable". So that works out fine.

Excellent.

Guys, don't take Ashley's photo too seriously.  She looks quite normal. That's just a placeholder photo until I find one I'm going to submit to rpol and then use.


So boss, what's the status on us getting started?

The current status is "your director's on jury duty with limited access to the net until tomorrow".  :)

I second that.

I managed to dodge that bullet two years ago.  Got a jury duty notice, then moved to a new city before the dates came up.

I'm still interested and willing to play on the chance the GM comes back.
