Character Application
left-aligned image


Name: Isaac C. Heinlein (Ike)
Race: Human
Gender: Male
Class: Soldier
Age: 50
Background concept: Isaac's brain is co-habitated by an alien consciousness. It can exert influence and provide extra-terrestial intelligence in times of great need (whatever/whenever the GM would like.)

Pre-apocalyspe: During his second term of service, while scouting strange alien ruins of a dead planet (later designated HPL6966-Yuggoth), Ike came upon a chamber of jar-enclosed brains. He mind was invaded, but not conquered. The alien intelligence resides in a symbiosis of sentience, an integration of id, a paradox of psyche. Only later did the Scout Service realize something was amiss with Isaac Heinlein. He started revealing unusual insights and revelations of science and biology which, when pressed on how, he could not explain nor fully remember. The Service at first thought he was plagarizing or spying to achieve such information, but surveillance over time showed this was not the case. Neural research was done and the alien brainwaves were detected. The alien intelligence could not be isolated or controlled. The Service could not risk this unpredictable and unknown alien intelligence inside the Scouts, so Ike was mustered out. Ike learned that the government had more devious plans for him. The alien intelligence enabled him to plot an escape, identity change, and occupation. Ike is privately concerned what the ultimate purpose of his alien mind inhabitor is. He would like to excise the alien consciousness, but does not know how.

Post-apocalypse: Ike became a mercenary following the Disasters, using his old training and skills to stay alive and make a living.

Game Link is on the initial post next to the source book link. Go ahead to the story link and let me know when everyone is ready to go.

Did everybody just lose interest in this game?

Game thread is open and it's "first come, first serve." If you made an app, you're free to join.

I don't know, because I posted a game thread post. Nobody has bothered to post in response. So, I'm waiting to see what happens. If nobody shows up by Friday, I'll be doing something else with it.

I was waiting for others to post bios/char sheets before I responded to the story thread. No point writing something if I was the only one playing.

Iíve been waiting to get my sheet done (tonight!) before posting any in-character. Odd to have the interest and character applications than silence.

I think it was the "first come, first serve" approach combined with a lack of clear instructions about who was actually "accepted." This approach is a little unconventional for this site.

I'm pretty sure the doctors/technicians will show up to your catscan.

I put my sheet up. Even though itís tedious, Iíve been meaning to get the hang of the tables. Even though I followed Effeteís code, I still see errors I canít account for. For example, the AC is where Chance is; the Chance is down in the Fear save; the Pain save has Minor instead of Major; the Currently Carryingís 11.5 link is under Weapon; and Effortless Armor Class Ability is wacky. All despite the code looking right, like Effetes. Unless Iíve been looking at it too long. Anyway, Iíll try again if this ship lifts off.

Those are things I wanted to find out about this game system. Was it easy to understand or a little wonky. How can we fix the problems to make it work. But the story is cool, sci-fi and post apocolypse.

The game is intriguing and I donít have any complaints on the rules Iíve read thus far.

The coding and tables of this site are another matter I probably should have printed up the character sheet in the rules and done it the old fashion way.
