Swith I laid out how I felt in that feedback survey. Sticking with Galli is going to be better for us in the long run, and better for the setting too.

Maybe. But it has to be something that everyone agrees on; otherwise it isn't going to work if one person's view dominates.

I think literally everyone did agree on it. :p Bielefeld is a place I'd like chars to visit, but not a useful main setting; its value, at present and for practical purposes, is nostalgia.

Basing the RP just off nostalgia would slowly siphon the fun away, so yeah I agree with that sentiment

PERSONIFICATION LIFE
CHARACTER APPLICATION


PLAYER INFORMATION
NS nation nickname: SCU

Skill Level (beginner, intermediate, advanced): Upper Intermediate or Advanced depending on focus level

How often can you post? Very regularly, schedule permitting


CHARACTER PERSONAL CHARACTERISTICS
Character Name: Samuel Christian Uttley

Character Gender: Male

Species (nation personification, human, alien, etc): Post-scarcity Human

Age: 25

Appearance: A slightly tall, but solidly built young man with deep green eyes. He keeps his long brown hair back with a headband or bandana. His face is intermediate, not entirely sharp and strong jawed but not rounded either, with a layer of short stubble kept clean.

URL to Character Picture, if any:

Character Occupation: Chemistry Consultant


OBJECTIVES
Primary Objectives are your character's main goals. This should be the thing that drives their part of the plot. When not engaged in stories, these are what occupy your character's thoughts or keep them busy. Examples include: acting on a desire to become a powerful and respected leader; attempting to overcome some horrible thing in the past which hinders the character on a day-to-day basis; seeking to break out their shell by overcoming profound shyness (getting involved with stories); comping to terms with a major flaw that inhibits the character from reaching full potential; etc.

Secondary Objectives are minor goals. These should be an undercurrent for your character when they are engaged in stories or on their free time. Examples include: acquiring weapons and becoming proficient with each one; improving sundered relations with a companion; improving their reading comprehension; mastering news spells; researching a cure for a plague; etc.

Objectives such as "making friends" or "finding love" are NOT acceptable. Please put much though into your character's objectives - they are what flesh out your character and one of the most important aspects necessary to portray the character as 3D.

Primary Objective: Spread his hedonistic and chaotic worldview or find a partner willing to be along for the ride with him. Ultimately he seeks to indulge in the joys of life but has never felt complete without a true soulmate by his side to enjoy the experiences with.
Secondary Objectives: Attend concerts, experience new things and taste, feel and see the world, make music, synthesize or tinker with chemicals and recreational drugs.


MUNDANE SKILLS
These do NOT require points. These are the average, daily things your character can do. Examples are "drive a car", "speak one Foreign Language", "play a guitar", "write poetry". Some mundane skills come from your bio and are freebie. A soldier has gone through Basic training. However, Medic, martial arts or sniper would be a Specialized Skill or Talent.

List Mundane skills here
Drive
Swim
Speak Arabic
Write Music

SPECIALIZED SKILLS AND TALENTS
These are specialized skills that set you apart from the average person. You have 7 points to spend here. Examples are swordsmanship, sniper, coercion, medic, wizarding, piloting etc.

  • Ability 1 and Points Spent: Superb understanding of organic chemistry and pharmaceuticals. 3 points
  • Ability 2 and Points Spent: A familiarity with criminal and underground elements able to supply contraband. 1 point
  • Ability 3 and Points Spent: Outstanding physical health. 2 points
  • Ability 4 and Points Spent: Basic self-defense skills. 1 point


OPTIONAL SUPERNATURAL CHARACTERISTICS
You have 7 points to spend here on supernatural skills or abilities. Sonic Scream, Levitation, Spell Casting, Shape Shifting etc. Superman MUST have his kryptonite thus weaknesses are things which inhibit the ability. Restrictions are what can't they do with their power or what balances it. They can only use it when they genuinely need it? They can't use it for more then five minutes without serious side-effects? Some things are allowed without points. A pegasus has wings thus it can fly. A raptor is fast thus no points are spent in speed. These "natural" abilities should be listed here, however. What isn't allowed: teleportation beyond a few feet; the ability to alter or go back/forward in time.

    Restrictions:
MAGICAL OR SPECIAL ITEMS
If it's not on this list, your character doesn't have it. Magical items are rare and hard to come by. Please list what they can/can't do - treat them like a supernatural thing. Items not allowed: anything that can alter time; anything that allows a character to teleport beyond a few feet.

List:
1 cartridge and injector of nanites capable of cellular and chemical repair

EQUIPMENT
This is what your character has on their person at the very moment when they are pulled from their home dimension. Don't abuse this. They won't be clutching an entire bunker.

List:
A small travel bag containing clothes and two pairs of shoes.
A omni-pad, basically a smartphone built into a chip in his palm.
Several small bags of various recreational drugs
A Union Passport

BACKGROUND
Be detailed please. You must explain how your character aquired their skills, talents, abilities, and special items. Wrap your primary and secondary objectives into it.

Education or Training: 4 years at Menoa Prep Highschool, multiple classes in traditional Arabic language and Music, 6 years at Menoa University with a Major in Pharmaceutical Chemistry and a minor in Pharmaceutical Law

Character Background/Biography: Born to upper-class parents in the city of Menoa, Samuel was exceptionally well provided for as a child, never having to want for anything. His parents could afford private tutors and extra classes so Sam excelled in school, his wealth and social status also made him popular among his peers. Despite his apparently ideal life Samuel suffered severely with Depression in his teen years, it was at this time that his fascination with Drugs and chemicals at large developed. By the time he had graduated high school he had experienced much more than people of his age thanks to lax parents and endless money, his summers had been spent attending music festivals with friends or partying days away at second homes.

However, Samuel still failed to find a sense of happiness in his life and had never fostered a real relationship with anyone. As he went into college he decided to take his love of chemical intoxication and make it into a career, the almost non-existent drug laws in the SCU permitting him to experiment and break new ground in mind altering substances. With a well paying and secure job Sam now seeks to fill the void of meaning and connection that has bitten away at him for so long.

IMPORTANT FINAL STEP:
One paragraph that sums up your character. This paragraph is what we'll use on your player tab on the first page of the thread. This MUST be brief. Your tab will contain a link to your application so people will have full details.
The nickname you go by on NS: SCU
Character Name: Samuel Christian Uttley
Image Link: n/a
Brief Description for Bio: A rich, privileged young man who has grown jaded with his comfortable life and now seeks a person who he has a deeper connection with and who is willing to travel and experience new things with him. His love of Drugs and Chemistry go hand in hand and his intelligence has allowed a early mastery of the chemical sciences.

Please direct questions to the OP or the CoOPs. Thanks for applying. Bear in mind that it can take several days for applications to be approved; check back often.

Hiya SCU. The OP, Cer, is dealing with RL, work-related stuff so he asked me to take a look and offer some feedback on goals, etc.

Tech stuff: The omni-pad might not be compatible with all the other stuff found in the IC. You'll need to ask before pulling data from other devices. You also won't find familiar signals while inside the dimension.

He might come from a post-scarcity society but he'll be in an environment where Residents have to grow, manufacture or otherwise produce whatever they need (unless they can pool money to buy it). Nothing is in abundance except cultist cocaine. :p

I see you RP with Sunset! He's delightful. Er... that's not feedback for the app.

Goals: Cer won't accept "find a lifemate and enjoy life" as a goal. He needs things that are more concrete, otherwise a character really doesn't serve much of a purpose. What drives him? What about him would make him a valuable resource to turn to? What holds him back? What does he seek to overcome? These are the things that initially shape him and allow him to grow as time progresses IC.

Your concept is good, but you'll need to boost your points a bit.
Ability 1 and Points Spent: Superb understanding of organic chemistry and pharmaceuticals. 3 points

A superb understanding would be four or more points. Three points means he knows it, same as all the others at his level in his field. Having a superb understanding doesn't mean he can actually accomplish anything, either. This is where goals and skills tie in.

Sure, but the techpriests can fix him up, same as they did for everybody else who asked.

The liquor flows freely around Sandy, too. Also soup.

Though that is a pretty interesting piece of culture shock to RP: "You... have to... work for stuff?"

Keeping Galli AND frequenting Bielefield would actually be an awesome idea. I support it; the player-added bits to Bielefield gave it a more personal touch, and it has so much going for it...plus, characters could get news and goods if they really wanted from it.

On the flipside, Galli has more adventure. Both would be great together.

Again, I would be interested in some worldbuilding, although my ideas of good cyberpunk are, like, Deus Ex.

My day thus far:

* awoken far too early by some sort of electronic alarm going off. We eventually concluded that it wasn't in the house, and it wasn't anything of ours beeping outside. But we still up far, far too early, and already unhappy.

* I seem to have had far too much fun on the rowing machine, and I think I've pulled a couple of abdominal muscles. It was a great workout, but now even the sitting upright thing is challenging. Walking is occasionally exciting.

Plosting is gonna be a wee bit slow tonight.
