OOC: General Discussion.

This thread is for general Out of Character discussion, whether game-related or not. There is a separate thread for character creation, but feel free to ask questions here if you want.

Just a quick comment about background, I'm not interrested in the characters history per se, your background should help make sense of your character and any wild and unussual skills you might have.

Here is the description for one of the charaters from the last set of playtesting.

Sukhveer Toor:
She is dark-haired, laughs a lot, tips in at 140 pounds, is 5 feet 5 inches tall, is 26 and will probably get a divorce unless her parents can arrange for her to marry a mountain climber. Her parents are traditional Indians who want to see their daughter succeed, but are better kept in the dark about Suhky's non traditional past times.

A Computer programmer by trade, she went to UCL(University College London), where, when she wasn't away with the university Venture Club studied Computer Science and maths. She left university three years ago and has been employed by Argos Trading, a faceless City forex trading firm ever since. By the time she left university with a 2:1, Sukhy had climbed Mont Blanc, Mount McKinley and made an attempt on the Eiger. Since she left University there have been three peaks in the Himalayas.

When she isn't climbing, Sukhy runs the eight miles into work every morning and works out most evenings. Sukhy has taken up Krav Maga after an unfortunate incident with some drunks one night last autumn when she was returning home. Last year she used her annual bonus to pay for some flying lessons although hasn't found the time to continue with it since.

Hope that gives you some idea of the sort of thing I'm looking for.

Sounds good. I need to think about character concept, but I'll get something pretty quick. Right now just leaning towards the dusty old professor. I actually haven't played one of those yet. ;)

I was thinking of rolling up the professor, but my unique ability to roll 7 or less on EDU for all my characters persisted again. Rest of the stats were fine, but that 1 throws the whole character in the garbage unless I want to be 80. At least it was higher than my guy for the pit. Crap, just crap. Now I need to come up with another character with a 2nd grade education.

Hahaha, so much for that. G was gratious enough to let me have a re-roll. Invis-castle slapped me across the face and said you were an uneducated slob before, and you still are!!

I rolled a 7 again on 3d6 for edu for the awesome 10 and still in high school. So I'm thinking of doing something besides the prof. It's all good.

Liz has been on holiday in Paris, and she has just gotten back on her return flight. She is from London, though she goes to school at Cambridge.

Ok, character created with a bit of background. Not sure how he will fit in yet, but I'm sure we can come up with something. ;)

I've added some equipment to my character sheet.

Also, since my flight just landed, shouldn't I be in Arrivals rather than Departures?

It's funny, but I was in Heathrow in early May 2008 during a trip to London.

All worked out don't worry :)

Kit wise - no camera for the holiday or does she rely on the smart phone?
