[OOC] Visitor's Thread

Any visitors to the game are welcome to post here with their opinions, or questions. If anyone wishes to apply to join the game after it begins, please post your intention here, and then send me a Forum Private Message with the following:
  • Full Character Statistics (including costs)
  • A full character history
  • A paragraph describing what the character looks like
  • A sample post for the character, allowing me chance to see what kind of poster you are, and how you bring your character to life
New characters should be made using the Character Creation rules in the Marvel Universe rulebook. All characters are expected to be inexperienced with their powers, and are relative unknowns to the world. Besides those restrictions, concepts are pretty open.

"Hi, police? Yes, I'd like to report someone lurking around my place? Oh ,that's not illegal? I should say Hi? I should be FRIENDLY? Okay. But my mom told me not to talk with strangers."

Hey Thanos. How's the lurking?

I'm lurking as well, as I work on a concept/idea. Going to go see IM 2 today too for more inspiration. Also picked up several TPB last couple of days.

Lurking is fine.....current Marvel Comics history, not so good. I rarely keep up with the Earth Bound stuff, as I like Thanos, obviously, and more cosmic kinds of comics. Not to say that there haven't been some good runs in X-men, Superman/Batman, Supergirl, or Transformers.....did I mention I have all 80 original Transformer Comics and 1-12 of the Gen2 Transformers, with several Universe books and offshoots (not all of the british stuff though).

I even made a Transformer for MURPG (mind you it was a Transformers game!)

That's not as impressive/valuable as the lady I know who has the first 150 or so 'Uncanny X-Men' in her attic, but it is pretty awesome.

Iron Man 2 is awesome, and Robert is an excellent Tony Stark.

Shakespeare, I know that I sent you a character concept but I waited to re-submit until the ruleset had worked itself out. Unfortunately, I don't have any of the Marvel Universe books and am not deeply familiar with the intricate background. If you have the resources and/or time to help in character creation (or anyone lurking, for that matter), I'd love to join if you'd have me.

I'd be happy to offer help to you 5Solas. Just cobble together a concept that includes everything I've asked for (save stats). Then we can work those out together.

The system itself is really very simple, once you get over the initial "...pardon?" factor that comes with every alien system.

Okay, because of an act of stupidity on my part, I've deleted all of the messages in my inbox. This means that anyone who has sent me previous details and such will need to re-send them for me. Sorry for the mess up guys -- it's what happens when you habitually live on four hours of sleep.

I'm still lurking too, but have been busy lately with RL so I've not read the story thus far.

I'm posting an intention to write up a character to send for consideration to play a game that is on these boards run by Shakespeare who is a contemporary person not a playwright from the past who lived in England and wrote plays that people like to quote.

Whew, it is hard getting up to 200 words!

...do I laugh, or smack you with a hard-cover copy of "The Complete Works"?

I'll be looking over your application tonight or tomorrow. Should be tonight.

Oh wait, this isn't the in-character thread? Darn.

See, you could have chosen to focus on the word idle in that sentence and chosen to step it up.

I curse it too, on occasion. I'll give your FPM a look through asap, Solas.
