I'm thinking a pilot. Original thought was a Medical Officer, but that's close to Caitlin Bell from the other campaign. A little variety. He's got a face like a bag of dogs. Ugly dogs. But dextrous. Here are the rolls. Will submit the full sheet once I figure the skills and such.

Great, looks good! You can post your sheet in the Character Creation thread when you have time.

If you're working on character creation, you should do so in the Character Creation thread (unless you're CrackheadC., in which case you have your own thread). Feel free to ask me any questions you have about it there as well. Take your time; we probably won't be starting for a couple of weeks.

I've moved the previous game, The Ninth Planet, to the Hall of Fame. You can still read it there, but you need to be logged in to do so.

I've posted the introduction, which will hopefully tide you over. The game probably won't be starting for at least a week and a half, as we have two new players who need to create characters and I have a lot more preparation to complete.

An awesome and thoroughly thrilling introduction. Just wondering if I should play tiddleywinks instead; might be a bit less heart pounding.

They must have smelled really bad. Valerie could smell them with her head under water. :D

Yes, they did smell that bad. ;)

Pretty much. The tube allowed air into her mouth, so the odors could still get into her nose through the back way.

Yeah... we'll go with that, although I've never been able to smell anything through my mouth before. Air has to pass through your nasal passage in order to carry the odor particles to your smell recepticles. Maybe she's deformed.

I want my character to last more than two pages so I'm not going to wind the GM up. :)

I figure Lucius is on borrowed time. He's running out of Sanity... so he will either die, or go insane probably before this chapter is up. So I ain't a feared a' no Keeper. ;)
