Out of Character Chat

Portland, Maine
August, 1928.
Steven Gilbert is a wealthy businessman, a leading exponent of the bourgeoisie of the roaring twenties. He sees his heritage project going up in smoke, when Timothy, his only six-year-old son, disappears.
A group of investigators will try to find his missing son. The group may include:

1) Police detectives
2) Private detective hired by Gilbert
3) Relatives or friends strongly motivated to find the missing kid

But Timothy´s disappearance is not the only gloomy burden weighing on the Gilbert family. Alyssa, Timothy's mother, committed suicide one year ago, and the reason for such an extreme action is still obscure.

Turstrigo:
I'm thinking of playing as a former WW1 nurse, who's a relative/friend of the family.


Nice, go ahead!

jp1885:
a mind to play either a beat cop, drafted in to help the detectives, or thier secretary, who possesses a few investigative skills of her own. Whatever you prefer

The secretary with investigative skills would work best. Go ahead!

VictoriaSilverwolf:
If nobody else wants it, I could play the role of the police detective. If somebody wants it, I'd be a concerned relative.

Mr. Handy:
I was thinking of playing a private investigator who specializes in finding missing children, but I could play the police detective if nobody else wants to do it.


So we have two options:
1) VictoriaSilverwolf plays the police detective and Mr. Handy plays the private investigator
2) VictoriaSilverwolf plays the concerned relative and plays Mr. Handy the police detective

Either option for me is fine. You guys decide.

It sounds like Victoria would prefer to play the police detective and would only play the concerned relative if nobody else wants it, whereas I'd prefer the private investigator and would only play the police detective if nobody else wants it, so we should go with that.

Since we already have a relative on board, it seems to make sense to have both a cop and a PI on the case.

Just saw the above comment, so that seems to be settled.

So, these are the characters so far:

Kathryn Adams

Player: Mr. Handy
Occupation: Private Investigator
Specialized in locating missing children. Hired by Gilbert to find his son.

Michael "Mike the Ogre" O'Shaugnessy
Player: VictoriaSilverwolf
Occupation: Police detective.
The detective investigating the case.

Ivy Ripley
Player: jp1885
Occupation: Police Secretary
She is O'Shaugnessy´s collegue and secretary, also investigating the case.

Turstrigo is still working on his character, who will be a relative of Mr. Gilbert.
As soon as the character is done we´ll start with the first scene.

I opened a “Cues” thread to list all the cues the group has been gathering. So you don´t have to search for them throughout the old posts.

Writing this now to give you plenty of notice, but I'll be on holiday from 24th May to 1st June with little or no internet access.
Feel free to NPC my character while I'm away.

Thanks for the note in advice. I think we´ll be able to pause the game for those days.
