Physical Description/Personality Description
Born to a family with a long line of wealthy doctors, Virago always knew what he wanted to be... a movie stuntman. His parents did everything they could to force him to be a surgeon but all it did was fuel his boundless energy. It didn't work.

While Virago was in Medical School on a visa in Fantastico his parents both died in a freak accident. Having inherited a fortune, Virago promptly dropped out and took a job as a movie stuntman. The work came naturally and Virago soon became a new rising star in the community. Sadly more realistic CGI and skyrocketing insurance rates soon put him out of a job. He turned to drugs and began to push his risk taking to the absolute insane level. He spiraled downward into a mess of paranoia, alcohol, drugs, weirdness, and spending. He would often his the underground fight clubs at night and MMA fights during the day to toughen him up.
Vir used the rest of his college fund to buy a small house and build himself a full body glove that consisted of kevlar, leather, and that insulating foam stuff, all designed to provide him protection from whatever demons haunted him without hindering his crazy stunts.

One day after playing some Final Fantasy, Virago decided he rather liked the concept of the Dragoon, and took to the streets to test it. Acquiring a regular lamp post, Virago began to train with it as a weapon, doing quite fine and killing several nuisance animals with it and even smacking around a thug or two. The look on people's faces was priceless when Vir would come flying off the roof of a three story building holding a half-broken street light like a lightsaber.

Finally... something that could finally satisfy his need to adrenaline without having to inject himself with drugs. Now if only he could find another job before his work visa expires.

Virago stands a compact 5'8 with an average slim build. He was easily able to stand in for most actors which helped make him a great stuntman.

His custom armor is a dark and slightly reflective silver, with a few (50) long loose strands trailing from the neck that fan out like a ragged cape. His hair is a messy light brown about shoulder length, with streaks of white and blond he put in for his last role and just sort of kept.

His eyes are an electric green. His skin a medium tone and teeth Hollywood quality perfect. He often wears a rave hoodie or a hat from his vast hat collection.

Virago is impulsive, crazy, brash, and unable to really hold long term friendships. He fits in well at the more eccentric scenes, at least for a little bit.

Here we go...

Name: Danyael "Romeo" Greyson

Statistics: Physical 2
Mental 5
Social 4
Skill 3
Awesome 2

Skills: Stealth
Thievery
Speechcraft
Sabotage
Computer Use

Specializations:
Sabotage: Trap Construction
Sabotage: Security Systems
Sabotage: Trap removal/bypass
Computer Use: Hacking
Computer Use: Construction/Repair
Thievery: Lock Picking
Thievery: Sleight of Hand
Thievery: High-Tech Theft
Speechcraft: Seduction
Speechcraft: Intimidation

Advantages: - Hollywood Hacker: Can hack into practically anything.
- Smooth Operator: Receivs bonuses when interacting with women in almost any situation.
- Kung Shui: No penalties for improvised melee weapons.

Disadvantages: - Casanova Complex: Is rather careless who he "associates" with, resulting in a number of angry and/or vengeful husbands.

Items and Equipment: iPhone (fully loaded)
Black leather wallet with cash
9mm pistol (with 4 clips)
Comb
Several clubbing outfits
Laptop (loaded with various hacking programs he has written)
Electrical tool kit
Apartment keys
"Thief" outfit (used when stealing from high-profile targets)
Keys to his Sazuki Hyabusa (stolen on his way out of New York)

Physical Description/Personality Description Danyael is a 6'2" ladies man, with fine black hair that reaches a little below his shoulders, and eyes that many a woman has lost themselves in. He is well built, but his physique is more for looks than for strength. He dresses well, particularly when clubbing, and is very flirtatious.

Danyael grew up in New York City, within the boundaries of the United States. His parents were nothing special. His mom had a day job working in some office building, and his dad dealt drugs and drank for a living. Needless to say, he spent little time at home. The majority of his time was spent at various clubs along the strip, where he lifted the wallets of drunks to pay for the drinks he bought the ladies. In fact, everything he now owns was paid for with someone else's money... He was well known at many of the places he frequented, being relatively popular and as smooth as can be. Unfortunately for him, his smoothness almost got him killed several times. While Danyael is very picky on the types of women he is attracted to, he shows less descretion regarding whether there is a ring on her finger or not. More than one jealous husband has aimed to kill the young man.

It seems luck alone has kept him alive thus far. But he figured it was time to get out of town. Fantastico was close, and he was sure he could get in passed what few guards there were. So he packed up his belongings, hopped on his neighbor's motorcycle and took off. He managed to convince the guys at the border that he belonged there and had just forgotten his papers, and he has been living there ever since, enjoying the clubs and the women... and the occasional thieving job he gets from one gang or another...

Both excellent, and with just the right amount of crazy awesome.

Admiral: Genius bruiser that never uses guns works wonderfully, and the disadvantage works well to your advantages for all cases. Yes. Also, I see what you did there.
Steelight: Fantastic suave spy, but I have PM'd you a note regarding the disadvantage.

I am so, so, sooooooo looking forward to the rest of the characters if this is how it's going.

I'll do my best to have a character in pretty soon. I'm thinking supposed-to-be-supercop, think Schwarzenegger but without the brains he's always supposed to have in his movies.

I don't know if it's the fact that I am midway through sobering up or just really enjoying having this game start but I am tittering about like a hummingbird on some powerful stimulants.

If somehow someone missed it, character creation is on the bottom of page 2 of this thread.

As soon as all characters are in intro posts will start going up, and Q&A threads and whatnot.

party

From years of playing modern and cyberpunk here's what I figure is a good balanced party:

1. Face - the guy to talk
2. Tech - to handle hacking and such
3. Artillery - lots of bullets
4. Heavy - the fat man on the front lines
5. Wildcard - driver, medic, scout, etc.

Luckily it looks like Steel will cover face, tech and even scout, I can cover heavy and medic, so there is a lot of wiggle room. If Almerin brings a gunner then we are pretty much set. We have all the bases covered at least for a minimum competent party so everything else is just icing on the gravy... or something.

Katie is 5’7”, with flowing red hair and green eyes. She has a rather curvy frame, but stays fit due to her deep-seated childhood training. She dresses in a practical yet classy manner that usually includes plunging necklines.

Katie McDonnell grew up in Boston, under a roof of IRA sympathizers. At an early age, Katie’s parents put her through extensive training in handling firearms, making creative bombs, smuggling, torture methods and extortion. She picked up weapons with ease, and her parents encouraged her to hone her skills. Katie also got particular enjoyment out of blowing up mopeds.

In an effort to lead a more normal life, Katie picked up gambling. Cards were her game, although anything that she could bet on she enjoyed. She lavishly spent her money betting on horse races, hockey games, and illegal fighting matches. “Double or nothing,” was phrase often uttered out of her lips while out doing what she loved best. When she won, she won big. When her luck ran out, well, that was a problem. After a few run-ins with a couple of strong arms, Katie began repaying some of her debt by working freelance for Boston’s Finest: The Irish Mob. There she began to perfect her skills at destroying rival gangs in new and exciting ways. Plus, the pay was good.

Katie didn’t have the same zeal for her parents’ homeland. Wanting to get away from ‘misplaced patriotism’ speeches from her family, and seeking a place to gamble without legal recourse, she packed up and moved to Fantastico in 2019. She spent one year in complete betting bliss before Mr. Fantasti IV disappear. The little paradise she had found quickly degraded. At least the casinos are still open…

Because I forgot to mention this earlier. The only way to refuel Awesome Points is to do something "awesome" without them. I just felt I should mention that, because I didn't.

Also, excellent character. I mean...goddamn.

If possible

I would like for this game to begin at the start of next week, and seeing how we have 3 characters done, 1 half done and one with at least a strong concept doesn't seem farfetched to ask for them to be finished by the end of the weekend.

I am extremely excited to get this going, and if anyone has any questions/changes/confessions now would be a good time to drop them because I'll be around all weekend because apparently I am too broke to drink.

Here's a concept. Meet Gerald Downhouser

Name: Gerald Downhouser

Vital Statistics

Attributes Physical 5
Mental 1
Social 2
Skill 4
Awesome 3

Skill: Combat (oh, really?) (Ranged)

Specialisations: Combat (Ranged) – Big Guns!!
Combat (Ranged) – People (that’s right, he’s good at throwing people at anything he desires)

Advantages: Hand of Stone -Unarmed attacks do lethal damage

Throw Anyone -He could throw fatso the clown, an elephant or even himself, at no penalty

Git Dow-ehn!! -Extreme capability to jump out of harm's way. Cars, buildings or explosions; as long as it’s big, he’ll dodge.

Disadvantages: Gullible means I can eat a lot? Then I’m definitely gullible. -Explanation… you don’t need an explanation. Ok, I don’t need an explanation.

Items and Equipment: Big gun 1 (he doesn’t know what it is called, but it’s big, and it’s got loads of bullets)
Big gun 2 (he doesn’t know what it is called, but it can make stuff explode AND has loads of bullets)
Handgun (his finger hardly fits in it, but hey… )
Hunting knife
Leather jacket
Spare leather jacket
FantasiConsole Portable with Braintrainer game
Ear-piece (from bodyguard experience). Doesn’t need it anymore, but it grew onto his ear.
Heavy boots
Cellphone
Fantasicornflakebars (more steroid than actual food)
Cigars (for chewing mostly)

Physical Description/Personality Description Gerald is a huge man, with an unnaturally big torso. He’s the equivalent of a minotaur with a human head, or… Arnold Schwarzenegger in his Commando days, not much difference there. He is muscle incarnate. But what he has in physical strength, he lacks in intelligence. Brains are for zombies; he just bashes anything he thinks is bad.
He usually goes clad in jeans and a leather jacket over a white T-shirt, with a crew cut and dark glasses. Yes, even at night.

Gerald once was a supercop. He fought bad guys, and he won. He was awesome. When he got a bit older, he became a personal bodyguard. It is whispered that he was in the service of Mr Fantasi IV himself, but he can hardly remember. With the reign of Mr Fantasti V, and growing crime, Gerald returned to the police force and is ready to throw some more criminals around.

"Ear-piece (from bodyguard experience). Doesn’t need it anymore, but it grew onto his ear."

I literally cannot stop laughing.

This is easily the best party...of all time.

As soon as Eol's character is in, this thing is rolling.

Hopefully...

...Eol's character will be in before the end of today.

Had an unexpectedly busy weekend and had my original plans derailed. Meetings and such this morning but should have "think time" before the sun goes down.
