Welcome to our first two players, OneWayTrip and EEC. Party creation will begin once we have enough people. For now, just stick around and be patient.

Hello and likewise!  I've never played a game like this before, I'm looking forward to seeing how it goes.

Still working on it. I haven't given up on this game, it's just going to take a little while longer to get going.

Great to hear.

I imagine it's going to draw a smaller application pool than most games.

I am, as expected, receiving fewer applications than normal. Please be patient, we'll be starting as soon as we have enough people. I know I'm sounding a bit like a broken record at this point, but I really don't have much else to tell you.

In reply to The Signal (msg # 10):

That's fine. These things take time.

Totally agreed!  It seems like a pretty niche sort of a system, this seems like a perfectly normal amount of time for it to take to attract a full crew.  I'm enthused about trying it but it's definitely not for everybody.  :)

How many people is 'enough people'?  Five or six maybe?

I'm going for six. I think we'll only really need five, but I always assume somebody's going to drop the game early and I make plans to accommodate.

Thanks for the add, signal.

Hey Oneway it's Val from the other place. I was awake last night thinking of all the character possibilities for this game. I love how the character creation is meant to take place.

Is it too soon to start discussing characters?

I think it might be.

As excited as I am to get started, character creation is pretty specific, and seems to require everybody present and an order established before people "declare" their characters.

This is a feature and not a bug I think. You flat out declare what you are playing, without any of the normal "I'm thinking of playing..." kind of stuff.

So if you have anything specific in mind, you might request being closer to the top of the order?

That's correct. If you have an idea, request a spot near the top. We'll figure out characters once everyone is in.

I have two or three basic character concepts I think I'd be equally content to run with, I'll be fine with a spot near the bottom  :)

And also, welcome aboard Prof!

I have the character emotionally thrown together regardless of what class I get. Their "reason for being on the ship" and the "why they're the best at said class." But I also have my eyes set on a certain class so hopefully I'm picking the one no one else wanted.

That being said, I request spot 1.

Let's use this opportunity for something, at least. Any questions on the setting or the way the game will be working?
