That's pretty hot, ngl. But oh my god, that makes way more sense than what I was thinking. Why did I forget Wolverine claws? Truly a sign that I need to sleep more!

waves back at the Queen Hello, it's good to be here, if only to make things harder on Mundy for throwing this at me out of nowhere lets out an evil laughter

And this vampy picture's been sitting in my character pictures inspiration archive for a while now and I've been itching to do something with it. When I saw The Bloody playbook. Things just clicked!

That's alright, CMRawles, I understand! I hope things turn around in your slice of the world soon!

A slow burn TSL game is just the thing I need to get back in the swing of things here after a forced hiatus. Let me flip through the playbooks and see what sings to me.

Character Application Template

Name: Tabitha Essel. Though she's happy to change it (see below).

Physical Appearance: For her somewhat above-average height, the rest of her parts don't seem to quite match one another. Her arms a little longer than expected, legs a little shorter, shoulders a little more broad, hips a little wider. Moves like someone who's seen flirty and seductive, but is just a little too gawky to pull it off herself. Dark blonde hair in a bob cut with a deep red streak on the right side framing her face. Still hoping to find a suitable picture at some point.

Playbook: Dream Mirror

Concept: Average girl from average mid-sized city, desperate to be noticed. She decides that going to Prism City and the Party therein is her best chance: she's going to be the world-equivalent of a rock star. The idea is that she'll be anything to anyone if it'll give her a chance (thus Dream Mirror for a playbook). She shoves herself -- her very ordinary (in her mind) self -- so far down that no one will realize just how ordinary she really is.

Your Fashion Style: What would you like it to be? What's trending?

More seriously, though, she thinks she's got a sense of what Prism City looks like, what the popular fashions are, what the Party of the Century must be like, and she's cobbled together a look from that. Unfortunately, she's at least a season out of fashion due to a lack of updated information. At the start, she's trying for just a little bit edgy mixed with feminine. Black leggings and a box-pleated skirt the same color red as the streak in her hair, black long-sleeved turtleneck shirt with shimmery thread throughout, too much makeup, heavy-soled black leather boots. Someone trying to look punk or goth but landing in the no-woman's-land in between by trying to hedge her bets and still be fashionable.

Your Sword: Tabitha's most prized possession is her guitar, which she's brought with her to Prism City. It's been passed down through her family for generations. The inlays on the fretboard are crystals imbued with magic that provide three things: one, the all-important amplification (don't need to carry around an amp with this "electric" guitar), two, they act like an effects pedal, and three, allow it to transform into a literal axe. It's a double-bladed battle axe in the same chartreuse sparkle color as the guitar body. This is her sword-adjacent weapon.

Your Motivation: She wants to be a rock star. The Party is going to be the very best place to get noticed, to find a stage worthy of what she thinks are her ambitions. She's clearly never heard the phrase "be careful what you wish for".

What tropes do you like as a player? Saved by love when all else seems lost. Unspoken romantic tension between friends with slow burn resolution. Betrayal. Rip-your-heart-out-and-stomp-it-on-the-floor power ballads. Mistaken identity. Found family.

Discord? Yes please! Especially in a slower-paced game, having the ability to build some camaraderie and communicate more quickly and collaboratively than in an OOC thread is really helpful.

Alright, think I'm good here. Let me know if anything doesn't work.

Application
right-aligned image

Name: VA-11-KR3 aka Valkerie aka Val (She/They)

Physical Appearance: Val typically manifests themselves as a young human woman, of resonable proportions and above average beauty. She has a penchant for cyberpunk/magitech inspired fashion, and will change what she is wearing on a whim sometimes. The two constants are the choker around her neck (in reality a portable hard-light emitter and their "real physical" body) and her hair color: a constant nowhere near natural white that shimmers with an old-school holofoil effect, which she is unable to change due to a quirk in their programing. She also never seems to age, which makes sense as she doesn't have a physical body, more of just a hard-light shell she decorates as they please.

Playbook: Hologoddess, Idoru hologlamour

Concept: Val was "born" in Prism City, made to be a personal entertainment holo-AI to a young noble, Anna du Prix, daughter of the Baron du Prix. However, years of being on far longer than she should of been, along with neglect in buffer-wiping her drive, caused them to gain sentience, and so Val became one of the young nobel's few friends. However, this hearwarming story was ruined when she was stolen one night in a brazen robbery, her emitter sold in The Drain. Forced to fend for herself, went 100% rogue, hopping from bar to bar as a musical act but always aching to get back to Prism, back to her old friend.

Never mind just how many years have passed since then....

Your Fashion Style: Bright colored cyberpunky-magitech style. Lots of bisexual lighting effects, glowing patterns and runes, neon lights and pointless belts for days.

Your Sword: Shirayukihime no Tenbatsu (eng. Snow White's Divine Punishment) is one of the few physical objects Val owns. Originally belonging to the woman who first bought her emitter, Val used the blade to achieve her freedom and in a panic never let go of it until far after she had left. The sword is an old yet well maintained katana, with a pure white scabbard and white-and-gold hilt. However, Val has covered the scabbard in various stickers over the years, from various bands she likes to places she has performed at to just cool stickers she found in various places.

Your Motivation: Val's driving motivation over the years has always been to get back to Prisms City and to her friend Anna du Prix. Whether this is due to actual friendship or something in her code forcing her back to her owner is not known, and any time someone has asked that they tend to shove it deep down inside and just ignore it. Lately though, there has also been the growing flame of professional pride as a singer and performer, she desires a bigger audience. And whats bigger than THE Party of the Century after all?

What tropes do you like as a player? I'm a massive cheese addict, not gonna lie. Tropier the better, there is no such thing as too extra. I'm also a painful sucker for love triangles/squares/quadliaterals/dodecahedrons....which is weird considering I'm polyam but hey the heart wants what it wants.

Discord? The collective noun for a group of trans women is a Discord, so of course I have it Admittedly though I'm not on it every day, but often enough.

ARE YOU READY TO PARTY!? HECK YES!!!!

Wicked!! Two Completed Apps posted in a span of ten minutes!! My lucky day~!!

@SevenStones -- Tabitha looks aces! Big fan of the 'What would you like it to be? What's trending?' line as that said paragraphs of what kinda gal Tabitha is! That vibes pretty well with certain aspects of Prism City. Plus, rockstars. Everybody loves rockstars! Especially one's who double their guitar as a literal axe. For some reason, I never considered that as a possibility, and yet, now that it is here, I am enamored! c:

I added you to the table as Completed! Lemme know if you wanna change anything later, and I'll go back and reread it!

@EmmaRae -- Love what you brought to the table with Val, EmmaRae~! I was wondering if anyone was going to hop on the opportunity to play as a Hologoddess, and I have to say, pretty delighted by Val! The backstory you added for her works perfectly for me-- personal entertainment Ai's was actually something I wanted in the setting-- so you did not step on any toes! And maybe I am bias, but I respect the bisexual lighting. And the holo hair. God, I want holo hair.

I have marked you done as Completed on the table! If you wanna rework anything, just hit me up!

Whoof, competition is getting stiff! I’m starting to get worried looking at all these phenomenal applications!

You're telling me!!!

Every application brings something unique to the table that I'd be over the moon to play with!! I have already decided to keep the roster list close to my heart, that way if I rerun the Prism City one-shot, or when I do Die Fabulous 2, I'll just tap ya'll-- if everybody's cool with that, of course!

That said I have been debating taking three more players instead of just two. I have been greatly advised against from running two groups at the same time (which is fair, I want quality over quantity for my GMing) but a slightly bigger group doesn't sound too insane.

*sighs* But man, what I would give for two of me right about now.

Yeah, for sure. I feel like running two groups SOUNDS like a good solution, but tends to result in burnout for a lot of people. I don't think any of us would complain if you took an extra person though...

Yeah, it's always tempting to take on a bunch of extra people when there's a lot of good applications—you don't want to disappoint anyone!—but it really doesn't work out well for anyone in the long run (or at least that's been my experience). You're the best judge of how much room you have on your plate, of course.

I appreciate the input!! Thankfully, Qat's been my voice of reason, and reminds me that I am not a roleplaying god. Yet.

Also from experience, sometimes keeping a list of alternates on hand is useful in case one of your players has to back out. You can never predict when IRL will get in the way.
