So there are currently 5 players accepted to the game, but this does not mean this will be the final group.  I will continue adding players that i feel might be a good fit, and will ultimately decide who is in the final circle based on group interactions and finished characters.  So, if someone disappears with no reason given or expected return for example, or if they dont do those things that i request of them (such as NPC's and location), they might not make the final cut.

This is not meant to scare anyone, just that if you have been allowed into the game so far i believe you have creative merit and i would like you to have the opportunity to mingle and talk to the other players.

I will be traveling to Mexico for a week and will have sporadic access to rpol, as such i have admitted everyone who has applied so far (i head to the airport in just over an hour)  So please, feel free to mingle, flesh out some characters sheets, talk to each other, but just know why i may seem a bit absent until my return.

Make sure you post your characters history, bio, and character sheet for everyone to ready and comment on in the character creation and discussion thread.  This is so that everyone can make character adjustments for the betterment of the group.

i have opened the game up for more players to be set in a different terrestrial direction/location.  So you will notice that most of you have a (C) for chiaroscuro and that the new people will be getting a different designation so everyone knows what part of the world they are in.

If i ask a question but it is not in red, then it is a question that your character does not answer.  If i ask a question and it IS in red, that requires an answer from your character in the next post.

Moving forward, if everyone could post the results of your dice rolls as follows

13:14, Today: Storyteller botched using 9d10 with the White Wolf Exalted system with a target of 7 with rolls of 2,2,4,2,1,6,2,1,6.  illustrative purposes.

There is no real reason other than i prefer it.  So... thank you!

So, if it has been more time than what i deem reasonable in the story thread, and people are not responding, i will leave it open for other people to jump in so that we dont get bogged down waiting for one person to post.

Which i will be doing now in the main thread

I posted this elsewhere, but ill go ahead and post it here as well for everyone including the new players.  You are empowered to not confine your answers and responses to only my prompts, but to expand on your answers. To help create the scene and the universe we are playing in.  You are encouraged to narrate other things happening, and be ingenious.

Siren is a really great example of this, (not that anyone else isnt doing a good job) and i encourage everyone to look at her threads as an example of what im trying to get across here. You can tell she loves to write, has a lot to say, and is not afraid to take some narrative control of the scene.  This not only helps to take some of the creative burden off of me (especially since there will be so many of you), but also helps to ensure that she is playing the type of game she wants.  I can look at her writing, and get a feel for whatever it is she wants to explore with her character.

This includes creating NPC's, or taking control of existing NPC's in ways that make sense with how i have presented them, or adding to the history, or personality of existing NPC's.  Im not going to get mad if you try to get creative, go for it.

So, i really need everyone to fill out character details with both their actual character sheet, as well as character description.  Specifically where it says view or edit description.

This is so that i can refer to it without having to keep everyone's RTJ or Search throughout the character creation discussion thread.  To encourage this, i will simply not be posting or engaging with anyones character further until this is complete.  It is bothersome for me to have to search around to try and refer to everyone's backstory to include and make engaging hooks, so if you cant at least do this to assist me i see no reason why i should go out of my way to include you in the game.

EDIT**  To be clear, i want everyones backstory, goals, appearance etc.  All the stuff that makes your character more than dots on a sheet.  Basically, all the stuff/more if relevant, that i asked for in the RTJ

Everyone please post your combat statistics somewhere on your sheet.  I would like your Join Battle dice pool, To Hit dice pool, Damage dice pool, Defense, Soak, as well as Mental Defense Values.  If there is any other relevant information such as charms that you want to reflexively use, then please post those as well with a note of when, what, and why.
