Rare & Unusual and You

Post by ST Jonah on Thu Apr 07, 2011 2:28 pm

So let's face it. Things in the R&U category are typically pretty crazy to place and would be fun to see in one format or another. Though, because of the rarity and usual aspect of the core character it becomes a bit harder to bring into play.

What happens when Joe Blow comes off the street from a game somewhere in the wilderness and asks us to play that 8th Gen True Brujah? Or asks if they can be a Kinfolk with Sorcery? Or hell, even wants to be an abomination? Well we as a staff take a look at a following list of things. This is in no way conclusive or absolute, but it is a start of a thought. Feel free to discuss of course! This post is open for review.

1. What is your track record with our game?
-Have you been an active player? If so, how long?
-Have you been an active supporter? If so, what have you done?
-How often do you attend our game?

2. What is your track record with the surrounding games?
-Have you been ejected from a game before?
-Do you have any chronicle level or org level censures or strikes?
-Has this idea/character been played in a previous incarnation of some sort?

3. What is your proposal like?
-All R&U items will require the character to have a detailed background. This
will be reviewed for relevancy.
-Can the character work without the R&U aspect?
-How will your story mesh with the story in place? What sort of contribution will it
provide?
-Why do you want to play this concept?
-How does this character compare to the current base power level of our game?
-What is our current R&U count?
-Is this going to be a locally played character or intending for travel?

Usually questions like "Why do you want to play this concept?" or "How will this concept add to the gaming environment and story to this game?" help.

That falls under section 3 of course. Those questions can be answered by the core questions listed. Of course they're good things to keep in mind. Added in on the original post Smile

"Why do you want to play this concept?"
-Can you prop my awesome abomination? I think it'd be wonderful to see one in play and see how these little peons would be able to take him on. Combat Rawr!

"How will this concept add to the gaming environment and story to this game?"
-As you can see in my background it wasn't necessarily his choice to become this. I mean he was on his way to greatness and all and some Vampie got all fanged up on his neck, yo! Can you imagine the moral dilemma that they would have to go through when the realize it? He's still fighting for Gaia after all. See on page 4? How he's all tough n' stuff with the Prince of Defiance?

Don't forget the part where my Verbena mage mentor offered to teach me Sphere magic to help combat the forces of darkness currently eroding my half-vamp half-garou soul.

Would you guys like me to post the R&U Bylaws here? I already went through the effort of making it look lovely and legible and smart for my forum. It would be a simple copy and paste thing that could be a nice reference. Seriously less than no effort at all. (I already checked, the post would work perfectly well. ^_^) If the ST crew would like to have that made available for players here, I'm happy to help out. I'm also happy to put updated versions up when they come out; I'll be doing the work anyway, so I might as well help out other games when I've got the chance.

Not right now, thank you. Since or OOC section is available without signing in, we're sorta avoiding that.
