How about how he got his name, or what inspired him to pick that name?

After talking with the folks who've posted interest and in progress apps. I am going to move up the application closing date, so we can hopefully get playing sooner.

I'm going to do a soft close of July 23 (0800 EST) - Post your interest, or a partial application by this time to be considered for the game.

Once the soft close passes, I will select the party once everyone has finalized their apps, or July 27 (0800 EST) - whichever comes first.

Problem is he probably got assigned his terribly generic name at creation. Adam (first man in the bible) Bowman (2001 reference) is just the sort of bland name they'd give to a deliberately bland looking skinjob. His initials are literally the first two letters of the alphabet . He could change it, of course, so he's accepted it as a name, but there's not really a story there.

Thankfully I did think think of something for the RP sample, writing it up now.

Side note, any critique of my application (when I'm finished) would be welcome as well.

RP sample's done, and now I'm at over twice the word limit for that section. It's really either feast for famine for those things as far as I go.

I'll try and get it double checked and edited down tomorrow.

A dingy bank of kisoks at your local spaceportAfter a long day of talking to beings from places he couldn't pronounce in languages he barely had a grasp on, 2nd level recruiter Davix flicked the toggle switch at his station. The exterior lights that advertised his window as open darkened. A protective barrier crackled to life, returning some illumination to his tiny part of the universe.

Davix slid out a metal bottle from his jacket pocket and unscrewed the top. The odor would tell any passerby that whatever was inside wasn't top shelf, but Davix knew it would the job done. He began reviewing the days applications in peace, taking sips and swigs between each paragraph.


Well folks, the time has come. I will be reviewing and making selections today. Thank you to everyone who has applied so far and good luck.
