Wait. I just realized that we are supposed to play as if we ourselves, the players, were who were being RP'd. Am I right? Because that's like Twilight Zone weird.

Would it be possible to play as someone else?

Yeah I suppose. I put that in place so that it became sort of a What Would You Do? question, but I think that may be a bit limiting. While I'm not going to change anything, let's just say that I have no Idea who or what you are actually like. So, you can be a different average human ;)

I suppose it is a bit, and I see absolutely no reason that someone couldn't use their powers for comedy.

Thanks. That's great. I will get an app and going. I have two thoughts. One, a police officer who walks a beat. Two, a tv news cameraman. Either would be interesting. Your suggestions are welcome.

(Next week for me is going to be awful and hellacious. But after then, I should be able to be active some).

Don't worry about being too active, I intend for something slow and undemanding here.

Full name: Matt Le Mar
Age: 37

Appearance: Image

Height and weight: 5'10, 225 lbs.

Field of Expertise: Video tech, some electronics maintenance

Skills and strengths: Photography, primarily video but does have experience with stills. Knows a lot of the technical details of getting his rig (camera) working and operating. Has done a number of shoots in bad weather, so he doesn't get as fazed by that. Has also gotten some knowledge of the internal politics behind who gets to present on evening news shows, due to having to live through it daily. Lifting up the video camera regularly has made Matt above average in strength.

Weaknesses: Despite his physical strength, Matt isn't skilled at combat. While he's been on the tech side of newscasts, he would be nervous having to speak in front of people or in front of a camera. No family and drinks more than he should. He isn't on the fast pace for promotion at his news agency, often being passed on for other cameramen.

Personality: Kind of a mix of humorous, gruff, and cynical. Gets annoyed at news pricks but has learned to bite his tongue when needed. Not really a leader, more of a follower.

Short Bio and Starting Location: Matt Le Mar got into news and video production in college at the University of Michigan. With average grades, Matt's mind got into working with the tech side. For some reason, it complemented his abilities and he just found his niche doing it.

After graduating, Matt applied to news agencies all over, and was taken on in Indianapolis. He's been a steady worker for the Channel 5 News, an NBC affiliate. Working with reporters, Matt has gotten his fair share of prima donna egos and behind the scenes undermining. While he hasn't advanced to a more prominent reporting city (like Chicago or St. Louis) - and his contributions haven't won any yearly awards from press agencies, Matt does his job and earns his pay.

Lately, Matt has been working with an anchor, Brett Clark, who is tracking down a serial killer in Indianapolis and is about to break the story...

Sample: Here's a sample from an awesome RP I hope continues.

I see no reason for the world not to fall into chaos either in game.

Speaking of which, I intend to have the IC going soon, this Sunday at the earliest, so we all have that to look forward to.

The Cosmo Sheldrake song that inspired the title has been turned into an iPhone commercial, so that's pretty cool.




Full name: Everett Sheen
Age: 24
Appearance:
Image

Height and weight: 6'3" 145 lb
Field of Expertise: Bachelors in Biochemistry/Politics Minor
Skills and strengths: A quick learner, with an affinity for the natural sciences, he has a green thumb, a decent natural charisma, and generally positive outlook on life. Growing up he was taught sailing, horseback riding, and hunting.
Weaknesses: Very willing to share and make concessions, wears contacts and is blind without them, can't swim, probably an alcoholic
Personality: Everett is friendly and caring and formal and smart. Optimistic and eager to please, he has a habit of pointing out the obvious. He likes to laugh, but hasn't had a good excuse to in a while. He also tends to live in the now, the world be damned. He is shit for preempting situations or foreseeing danger, but is extremely capable of getting himself and others out once they are in the fire. Everett loves a challenge and will sometimes experience things merely for the experience, He is somewhat fearless, if not also soft-spoken. He is a firm believer in complex solutions for complex problems and the influence of soft-power.
Short Bio and Starting Location: He grew up in a stereotypical, happy, Republican family. Kinda. He was born to a jack-of-all-trades Father who went from job to job. His Mother was a lawyer and the only person in their home town to make six-figures, or so the saying goes. Unfortunately it wasn't meant to be and they split up when Everett was very young. Everett and his Father ended up moving in with Everett's grandmother until he could find a housing situation, which didn't take long because they had set up a small real-estate company around the time he was born. It was in these conditions that Everett was raised, under the care of his decidedly large family. He had a fairly religious Grandmother who was Everett's primary female influence, which gave him his formal nature, especially around women, and accounted for his Catholic up-bringing. His Grandfather was a retired mill-worker and Hobbyist gardener, whom with Everett spent many of his summer days aiding in the weeding of the large subsistence garden that dominated the site of the old mill, one of their many properties. Here he developed his green thumb. This was also aided by his "Uncle", an old gentleman close to the family. He had a severe drinking problem and was known to get very serious when he drank, but got along really well with Everett. He was generally cited with giving Everett his keen interest in wildlife and why he went to school for Biochemistry. His mother was a far flung aspect of Everett's life, a well from which money came and that insisted he was put in the best private school the UP had to offer. Where he was the youngest student to ace the Advanced Biology courses and was taking college level classes as a junior. His first aunt gave him his horse back skills, second gave him cooking, third was music, and fourth was writing. Everett had two other aunts and uncles, but those four had moved away to various locations, thus Everett's ability to speak Spanish and his knowledge of Australia. His Father's jack-of-all-trade style meant that Conor had grown up in conditions of experience, fixing pipes, cars, electrical, construction, driving tractors and vehicles at eleven. When he graduated highschool, he started going to college for biochemistry, where he did remarkably well, paying very little out of pocket due to scholarships. He did most of his lab work with bacteriophages. Eventually landing a job with the CDC fresh out of college as a lab technician. He'll be starting in Atlanta, Georgia.
Application Code: 56


This is Everett, everyone say hi!

The IC starts tomorrow, so get ready!

Good to hear the IC's starting soon. I'm still in the middle of a busy and frustrating week, so I may not be able to post tomorrow. We'll see.
