Sure thing,

So 2 ideas I've been toying with are:

1. A tinkerer, someone who loves to toy around and experiment with all the wonders of this age, Radio, Automobile. It's almost like magic and I've got just the knack for it.
2. The university professor. He's a bit dated and wishes times were simpler. Nowadays everybody is always rushing of to somewhere and nobody has time for common courtesies anymore.

So do you guys have a preference for one or the other?

ps, is there a way to switch of the CAPTCHA confirmation needed everytime I want to post, it is really annoying.

Once you hit a certain threshold of post count, the captchas magically go away.

Bit of a shame PBF board posts don't count ><

Both ideas will work for me. A favorite on your part, laps?

I'm intending to play a talker, and if we're doing more role-playing than combat, then perhaps another talker might work.

Desmond is slick, but Desmond is more streetsmart than book-smart.  Both of the options provided are viable to me since they involve different kinds of book-smart.  The interactions should play out well.

The choice is yours then, Mr. Fly. Please give us a background and stats based on the previous posts in this thread.

I've had a look at our slick PI and decided to go for the tinkerer.

James is a CUNNING 22 year old who is currently between jobs. His love for all things technical might have to do with his knack for OPERATIONS. He is pretty smart and is known as quite a PERCEPTIVE man. People tend to overlook him though. It isn't that he is actively avoiding people. He just doesn't like to be the center of attention and thus he tends to be a bit STEALTHY. He could have been a well off architect or something but James was always more interested in toying with machines than with worldly gains. He has recently fallen on harder times and while not homeless he has had to steal some supplies from the local radio shop to be able to keep working on his latest project. He's building his own Amplitude Modulating Radio.

His tricks are:

Electrical systems
German (the scientific language before WW2)
Recognizing songs/Tunes


If you have any comments just let me know.

Work on the story's introduction has started.

@dragonfly, can you please explain in a little more detail what it is James does for a living? Is his tinkering merely a hobby, or does he try and make money out of it?

While it used to be merely a hobby. Currently he is trying to make some money with fixing people's stuff. As mentioned he is in between jobs so he clings to any opportunity for work. Last week he repaired old Mrs Robinson's her radio for a couple of bucks and the broken parts he had to replace. (you never know when you need some old pieces of electrical wire and magnetic coils.) The week before that he replaced a piston in Jefferson's car so he could pay this month's rent.

(BTW I'm going on a trip tomorrow so I wont have time to post until the end of next week probably)

Incidentally I will be travelling in the US and will have spotty 'net connection for around 2 weeks.

But that's only happening from next week onwards.

That's alright. Like I said, no rush. I'll take my time to flesh out the introduction properly. Enjoy your traveling.

Right. First off, apologies for the lack of action on my part. Life has been playing silly buggers with me over the past month and a half, but I have managed to corner and subdue it. It won't do it again any time soon.

This enables me to turn my attention to the task at hand. I'll shortly be updating the IC topic as well, but not before these public service announcements:

For the IC post, you've managed to copy my format quite nicely. However, I would kindly like to ask you to pick your own color for the text, so the different posts become more easily distinguishable. Contrast and legibility are king. If you find yourself restricted by the options the text editor offers, feel free to pick another one from this list, for example. They don't all work, but you should have plenty of choice. Do feel obliged to amend your previous post as well.

Quote
Any parts in the IC thread that in fact aren't in character, such as dice rolls or questions from the player to the storyteller, can go in quote fields.

Additional formatting requests may follow.

As indicated previously, use Rolz' Dice Roll button to generate roll results, including the image in your post. It goes without saying I expect you to abide by the first result rolled. I trust both of you well enough not to let me and/or yourselves down on this one.

That being said: back to weeziness.

To add a little flavor to the proceedings, check out this album for use as a soundtrack.

Guys, I'm out. There just isn't enough happening for me to keep it interesting. The speed of posting, and thus the story is way to slow for me to keep me motivated enough to play.
LuckyDee, if you ever want to play a game in real life, just let me know.

Understandable. It hasn't been too hard to find a moment to consider the game, but contrary to real life stuff, you're constantly having to pick up the vibe again in order to produce something meaningful. Which - with a full time job and a part time education - has been harder than I'd expected.

Sorry to see you go, but no hard feelings.

@thelaptop, what are your thoughts on this?

If you don't mind a story-telling dialogue between you and I, I'm game to continue on.  The progress is a little slow, but it doesn't seem to be a problem to me, mostly because it's more role-playing and less combat/dice mangling.

Righteous. We'll keep on like this then, for now.
