Precisely what I was thinking. Genius and madness are two sides of the same coin! I was thinking more along the lines of Mulder/Lone Gunmen level of sanity at times. Mulder is happy to go chasing after so many crazy conspiracies at the drop of the hat, without necessarily a healthy and sane dose of skepticism at points. He could hardly be classified as fully sane in many respects.

Name: Oksana
High Concept: Mystical Urban Explorer
Trouble: Will risk it all for a Peak Experience
FX Aspect: Last resort: Telekinesis
 

BackgroundAddicted to the euphoria of rediscovering places both forgotten and forbidden, Oksana spent much of her childhood and early twenties planning for and then conducting elaborate exploratory missions. Medical school started as an excuse to put off adult responsibilities became a means of funding her ‘hobby’ as it became more consuming and her partners got married, had kids, or got arrested after bragging too much online.

She needed to broke away from the Urbex community and become more self-sufficient: learning to shoot for protection, and developing an inexplicable knack for - when the situation demanded it - being able to manipulate objects and her own trajectory with her thoughts. Her missions became meticulously thought-out to take advantage of whatever gaps she could find in her work-load.

With some resources saved up, she’s ready to make a career out of exploring old places in new ways.

I may swing back around to my application to try infusing a little more character to parts of it before the deadline. I feel like I should be able to get more of the character itself into two paragraphs rather than as much force-fed background.

Your app is looking good Asura You have good chance of getting in, they really need a computer person. I hope the DM will take two characters lol

I hope the decision isn't made based on one skill. Most of us could swap computers in for something not core to the rest of the character. For instance, Oksana could easily have studied computers instead of medical science, just not instead of urbex.

@all: Agreed, looking very good. I have to say you have all seemed to get the more 'fatey' part of character creation... its about story first! and I see a lot of VERY cool story in the apps we have so far.

@Ssays: You're correct... we only are looking at skills to get a sense of character. We fully expect the new people to develop and tweak skills and stunts for party synergy the first scene or two. The other aspects (other than the High Aspect and Trouble, and first story aspect) are technically open for rewrite as well during the first several scenes!

Bottom line on this is we really want your characters to be memorable - full of awesome - right out of the box. There is a balance of course, if a character turns out to be TOO much of a distraction to the goals-mission of the team, they could very well find themselves shipped of to a listen post in Teller, Alaska. I've been there, Believe me when I say, you don't to go there!

I hope that helps some... Savy

Indeed! Tech just happened to work nicely for the concept. Huzzah for that!

I did a rewrite of the backstory that I hope allows a little more flavor of the character to sink through rather than feeling like a dull biography, on the off-chance somebody wants to give some feedback upon it.

I put my background public so that the other players can read.
