We do have cookies and very good coffee at the home office though. And did I mention nice legs on the secretaries as well as at least one teammate?

If you're not familiar with our game here are a few fun facts I recently discovered!

* Dark*Matter The Hoffmann Institutes' first posts were on or around Feb-17, 2006.
* Ruffly 987,290+ words have been written in our game threads.
* About 5,444,271 characters make up in-game posts.
* If printed as a hardback book, it would fill around 3,900 pages.
* Currently there are 4000+ posts in the main OOC thread (not counted in any of the above)

I'm going to post a few archetypes we think would be helpful to the current team sometime today.

Thanks for the PMs and interest expressed so far. I think that would help answer a lot of the questions I'm getting.

Thanks for checking out our advert.

- Savoy

So a pole of our players came up with the following list of preferred candidates but YOU ARE NOT limited to these at all.

We will consider any application regardless of... race, color, religion, sex (including gender identity, sexual orientation, and pregnancy), national origin, age (40 or older), disability, genetic information, species, plane of existence or planet of origin.

Occult librarian or bookworm
Fae-Touched Loremaster
Alien Hunter
Well-heeled Playboy Adventurer
Ghost Hunter Scientist
Conspiracy-Theory Prepper Gunslinger
Dresden Files-style Priest

I don't know how to incorporate his ability to 'talk to machines'. Is it skills? Perks?

That sounds like an FX skill. Probably PSI- Unless Sav has a Technomancy skill group

Thanks, Savoy! Unfortunately I don't think I can be what you're looking for.

Though now I'm amusing myself with the thought of a vampire librarian.

I find all of this rather enticing, but I don't believe I could give you a character that would compliment your current crew/fill one of the concepts you have put forth above.
ADD: All of my ideas are mundane humans with vaguely LEO backgrounds that saw/experienced something no one believes, because "People are Dumb". I like playing detectives.

Name: Dmitri Caruso
Archetype: Anarcho-Taoist Illuminati Agent
Character Concept:

 


 



Key Skills/Abilities/Talents

Academics - Secret/Illuminati History
Culture (Illuminati) VS Awareness
Empathy
Profession (visual arts)

Taoism FX
(not sure what these things do, so not sure about emphasis)
- confidence
- energy spiral
- not doing
- peace
- permeation
- talisman

Traits
- Alertness
- Defensive Stance
- Elusive

If I have points, I wouldn't mind adding some parkour (acrobatics, athletics) and martial arts (hand to hand), even if just 1 pt.

Rank - New recruit, maybe a contractor, whatever makes sense to you.

This character is steeped in the lore of The Illuminatus Trilogy (my favorite book of all time, I think). Those books are HIGHLY satirical and so I am picturing this to be a parallel and more serious version of the events. In the books and with my PC I expect the truth to be very slippery.

If you have comparable secret societies in-setting that I should replace these with, let me know.

Also, I don't write this much for posts. I prefer shorter snappier posts that allow others to yap in sequence better. I find a leaner post is often better for my reading experience. I tend to do more think, speak, act, than adding setting details as I tend to think that's more the GMs bailiwick.

That's all I got.
