Cast Notes: Jimmy
I'm posting these character creation topics under your characters, which I thinkhope means you can edit these pages directly. These topics are open, but feel free to request an additional private thread or send a PM if you want to discuss elements of your character you'd rather keep quiet. I'll start it off by copy-pasting the most recent character info I can find from the general purpose thread, and we can go from there.

Jimmy: I really, REALLY want to see you spread around your bond dots more. Having so few bonds is kinda a disservice to your character and his backstory in my opinion and more diverse spreads are more interesting to storytell. And I'm loath to use 5 points for any single bond or affliction. I'd say 3 should be your upper limit, just to keep things spread out and diverse enough. And definitely anchor that cat! You need more anchors really.

I'd say something like this:

Bond 3: My pet cat (anchor)
Bond 3: I have a drinking Problem
Bond 1: I have bar-friends in every port (Collection of Anchors)
Bond 1: The bottle of Jack I was drinking when I lost my memory (anchor)
Affliction 3: I have no memories of my past prior to commencement
Affliction 1: I am unusually good at making friends with all sorts of folk
Affliction 1: No one beats me at drinking or drinking games

It's up to you what your anchor details are, but the Cat should be a mundane anchor, the bar friends be a mundane anchor, and the bottle of jack be a wondrous anchor (that probably has a power related to memories or dreams but ultimately your call but I think the thing should be magical and very much related to your memory loss).

I posted this from the Dramatis thread in case you missed it.

In reply to Reyfus (msg # 2):

The reason i don't want to have any living anchors is that i don't feel like jimmy would put them at risk. I might use the jack bottle though.

But as much as I'd like to emphasize the cat and drinking bond i gotta admit you have a point.

Sure I'll use the new spread. Just let me edit it in.

Ok i edited how i liked it. I don't want to lower those 2 bonds since by putting them to the max it helps emphasize them along with making them more important parts of my character.

Also the friendships are emphasized by my high interest level in making friends.

But number one if changing my character leads to discomfort then i tend to not do it.

Edit thanks for the ideas tho.

Well while I still think you should branch out a little, you can - over time in game - reallocate your bond points as time goes on. So maybe now Jimmy feels his whole world is basically a cat and a bottle of Jack but over time maybe he will find people, places, and/or things he cares more about and find his bond points spreading out.

I do approve of you tweaking your afflictions though.

True true if the cat ever dies then I'm definitely relocating the points to some of you suggestions. Things might change anyways.
