I thought I'd put a little something in for recruits. It seems we have a unique situation one of you might want to exploit. It is CONCEIVABLE that one of the new recruits could be a time traveler of sorts. There is an opportunity just MAYBE if Savoylen allows it for someone from the area of Charleston in the yeat 1706 to become one of our small group. You would either be a colonist, perhaps one of the lost members of the Roanoke colony? A native of the Americas before Europeans took over the area is an option. Or possibly a pirate, French, British, Dutch or other sailor/ship's officer with a reason to be on the shores of colonial America.

Frankee Grimes
Physical: [][][] Mental: [][] FP: 2/2
High Concept: Escaped Hoodoo Conjurer
Trouble: Signs of Danger are Everywhere

+4 Transmutation FX
+3 Nature FX, Physique
+2 Fight, Notice, Stealth
+1 Deceive, rapport, investigate, burglary



Stunts:
Tempered Steel: Use Physique rather than Athletics when bodily strength and hardness can be a factor in the outcome
Force of Nature: Use Nature FX in place of WILL
Shape Object (Transmutation)
Transmute Self (Transmutation - at a cost)

Frankee escaped (Freedman) from the Carolinas but carries her Hoodoo heritage with her to this day. She has seen the evil that indwells the world, and is willing to fight it with all the tools at her disposal. Though small in stature, she is both a physical and mental force. Trained as a young child to not fear her connection her spiritually, she has embraced it in order to bring forward a new world where all people have the right to live their lives with dignity.

That would be an awesome idea to play a 1700 character, but I really like what I put together already, it took me couple of hours to learn the system and think about it so I'm not willing to change it. I hope you guys will like it as well

I have an idea brewing but it's not a time period I'm overly familiar with, so much research needed...

Okay, lots of interesting characters that I'd play come to mind and restrictions normally help creativity. But I'd need a little clarification. We're saying that there's a character that's joining the team in modern times who only knows the early 1700's? If so, no matter what build you use, I'd have to think that their primary aspect would be, "Crippled by modernity." or something similar.

Is Frankee an example of a character that would work in this slot? Or... something else?

@Ssays I don't know if this is what you are asking about, but currently the team has been transported back in time to the 1700s. The idea is that the team would find the character while they are in the past and somehow bring that character with them back to the future. Obviously once we meet up with the character (in the past) said the character would help the team out in some way the proves useful.

Frankee seems to be an example of a character that would work. While I can't speak for Savy he has done similar things in the past.

Sadly, I cannot help on the time travel front. The character concept in my head rather relies on the idea of technology, so eschewing it is not an option. It does seem like a rather intriguing design space though!

Ummm. What's the date in 1706? Roughly? Before or after the invasion?

Thanks Robi, you nailed it.

I don't want to spoil it for the players, Ssays... they are still in discovery phase.

Just think what would be the most 'dramatic' and interesting time for them to show up, and you're probably right (thats how Fate works most the time).

Before everyone gets discouraged we should probably point out that there is not just ONE slot open in the game. I believe the number of new players/recruits will be determined after Sav reviews all the applications.
