I believe that cascades normally... on the odd numbers.

I know its hard to see the new posts on this VERY long recruitnig threads so I'm just posting this again so its easy to find the latest blurb.Repost:
Its that time again... the Hoffmann Institute is recruiting for 1 or 2 more agents!

All the details are listed in post #1 here.

left-aligned image
In a few months we'll be hitting our 15-year anniversary. Our team is currently at 6 members but they are taking on a big mission to take down an infamous creature (you'd know the name but I don't want to spoil it) and are thinking that having a little extra meat shields help is a good idea.

Please don't let the non-mainstream system keep you from applying. Its a simple skill-based system that 5e players (and oddly Fate players) will find familiar. All the rules and details are provided by me in the game forum.

Please feel free to ask questions here or PM me.

Thanks! Savoy

Character Notes/Interview:
"I have been accused of being a severe, humourless, man. The truth is that I am an extremely severe man. My work demands it; my life has demanded it. When you are privy to the secrets that lurk just beneath the surface of this world of... yours? Ours? Theirs? I don't know anymore. Nevertheless, you quickly realise either you will break, or you will not break. Invariably, most break. I, however, did not. Better I had broken, I think. There is no blinding yourself to the full majesty of the universe once it has been revealed to you.

My peers call me eccentric, a folklorist and an 'esoteric expert'; I do not blame them for this as I would call myself so if I were like them. I mind their names for me... less than they realise. Folklorist is better than Auf, Changeling. That was the name given to me as a child. Never Fintan, just Auf. Am I actually Me, or am I some fairy-folk replacement with the memories of 'Me'? I wondered this endlessly when I was younger, but I no longer care.

In being born and kidnapped, in a manner of speaking, by the very idea that fairies had stolen the 'real' Me; regardless of whether they actually had or not, I was forced to learn what no child should ever know. Now, I refuse to be cursed for making my way by exploiting that knowledge."

Wow Oghain, I know you are still working on it but ... you're killing it! I'm marking you completed but feel free to keep playing around with it until you are ready. I'll know when you make it public.

Great job!

I definitely want in!

I already have a character concept: a former FSB agent who specialized/es in the human side of spying and, when she was with FSB, getting kompromat. She may have some psychic type abilities, maybe a little telepathy or a little Deanna Trois-type empathy. She may also be a psychologist. Unlike in James Bond movies, she's not going to be stunning, more "girl next door". She can work her magic on the boys (and some girls), yes, but she can just as easily get hired as a file clerk or tutor.

That's the broad concept. Need time to work it out, maybe with GM help as I haven't played this system. I found the Alternity 2.0 rules online, though. I'll get this together PDQ.

Just to double check something, is there a particular limit within which you'd like us to stay for doing the little blurb thing at the end of our application? I'm not planning on doing a massive massive bio, but if say, two paragraphs of the size I have already is definitely too much, that would be useful to know.

Nope, no limit. Just do what is fun for you and gives us an idea of what you're thinking.

Consider my app complete. I dig into the "interview" sometimes to tweak the writing, but the backstory won't fundamentally change.
