Yeah, I think that's fair, though I have to admit I do like some romance. I loved GoldenEye (which was the first Bond film I ever saw in the cinemas) and I think The World is Not Enough is very underrated.

I know I pitched Jane as a medical doctor, but the more I think about it I'm not sure that quite works for an active field agent - does the Hippocratic Oath cover shooting at Blofeld?

I was curious so I looked it up.

The Hippocratic oath says to do no harm to your patients and to keep confidential any information overheard while performing your role as a physician.

So as long as you don't take on Blofeld as a patient then you don't have to refrain from shooting at him or spying on him.

Problem solved!

I would also imagine that Jane has developed a more personal version of the oath, given the change in her profession, and the requirements that might come with it. Some variation that allows her to protect innocents, or the good of humanity, rather than those intentionally acting harmfully toward others?

At the end of the day, I don't think anyone will begrudge her shooting someone about to press a nuke activation switch.

I'm very pleasantly surprised by the number of apps. I didn't think we'd get enough for a full team. Of course I will be very nervous if we get more apps!

Also it's only been a week, we've still got 2 more weeks to go.

This is brilliant! Before going on any future mission Jane will now have to check that the targets (and any related henchmen) are not currently a patient of hers!

Oh the dilemma!

The final 10 day countdown begins, spies-to-be!

If you want to tweak any of your applications, add details or specifics, feel free. I'll reassess the applications on the day, so any changes will be taken into account then, and we'll kick things off shortly after that.

Very excited, looking forward to some spy action!

Can't wait! Happy to start whenever if you even want to get rolling earlier than planned.

I've also made a few adjustments and expanded Percie's background a bit since it felt a bit lacking.

You'd better spy hard.

@Acathala: Did you have someone in mind for Tom, appearance wise? Just curious.

I've added an appearence in the other section. I don't use pictures, as I prefer to leave it up to the imagination. Also, even though it's unlikely, to avoid being sued by anyone that owns the picture.

That's understandable.

There is also the option of free stock imagery, which is permissible for any non-profit use - just a mention, at any rate.

Pixabay.com is a good source of free and legal images.

-- Update --

As the applications have slowed down, I'm going to look at making final selections this weekend, on Sunday 13th Feb. This is mainly because there doesn't seem a need to delay, and we have a good portion of applications currently.

So, additional characters can still be applied for, up until Sunday 13th Feb.

Note: This will also bring the game start date forward by 2 days, with the intended start being Sunday 20th Feb.
