I guess the Samurai chooses

Chooses very carefully, if he is wise

I believe that is the intent of the passage, that the Samurai chooses, and thus the display of the Mon is symbolic on the individual level.

Oh I know all of that. I was asking where each character would allocate their mon.

Why the big secret for that Vortigern?

Josuke wears his family mon on the left, and his school's mon on the right.

It'll become evident in your first scene together, anyways. So it doesn't really matter; I was merely curious.

I'll begin working on the opening post from Monday onwards; the game will begin shortly after. Elpresidente's PC, when submitted, will be introduced as soon as possible.

Edit!: I should be in front of a computer for a good few hours next week, and so will be looking to try and get the first game post up at that time.

Go ahead and welcome Foxtrot to the game guys, and to the site as a whole.

Foxtrot: go ahead and put your sheet back up in the forum that I have Privated for you. We'll work more on it therein, and I'll let everyone else know when the process is concluded.

Welcome aboard Foxtrot. So, Unicorn shugenja, huh?

I've only just realised that I've not asked this before: how old is each player's samurai?

Counting Foxtrot, who has already sent me a fair bit of character info, I've got for the game a total of five characters. At an absolute maximum, I could accommodate a sixth PC; this final slot could, potentially, be filled by a friend of mine (currently offsite), or elpresidente, who I still have yet to hear from.

And still no courtier, correct?

Correct. Provided social interactions are handled carefully, and someone's thrown a few points towards skills aimed at interaction, then not having a courtier shouldn't be too big of a loss.

My friend, if she decides to play, might well remedy this lack of character forte. Would suit her play style, I imagine.

Thanks all. I ask merely for descriptive detail in the first post.

Hajimemashite, fellow samurai and samurai-ko.

I'm Foxtrot, and after struggling to for many hours to create a shugenja I could feel passionate about playing, I gave up and decided to make a courtier instead. Her name is Utaku Katsumi of the Clan Unicorn, a 17 year old student of the Ide Emissary School. I won't give much away now, but I am very excited to see how her story unfolds - she has, I think, a very compelling backstory that I encourage each of you to explore in our RP as I will each of your own characters.

PS: It was completely my decision to make a courtier, I didn't do so to simply fill a slot. I most always play social characters in my games, and I just needed to wait until a suitably inspiring character concept came my way to make one.

Also, I think it appropriate to mention that this will be my first PbP RPG. I just found the forums and registered on them 3 nights ago. As such, I may be a bit awkward until I learn how the medium works. I've already read the stickies, but if any of you have some advice for a PBP noob, I'll gladly take it.

Anyone potentially interested in a character tie-in pre-game, PM me. I tend to favor such things over meeting everyone in game in the beginning of things. Especially in PbP, as anything that slows down the game even further in a PbP is bad, IMO.

Please be sure to run any character tie-ins by me, also via Private Message. I'd like the opportunity to address any potential issues that might arise from prior meetings, given the setting (few as they might be), and also need to edit the game's first post where necessary to accommodate the finer details (if necessary).

Foxtrot: feel free to post any questions you might have in this thread, whenever they arise. I'll answer them as soon as possible.

I've changed the title of your character thread to match the new PC. Please be sure to address the questions I've left you, so that I can get your character approved before the first post is due to go up (Monday onwards). Also, I assume that this would mean that your Private Message questions no longer require an answer?

There we go character is up. I've her sat ready to post fully formatted in a text file for the last week an a half and just not found anywhere with a decent enough patch of internet. I'm back now though so normal service is resumed.

Okay, I'll give the sheet a look over as soon as possible; barring serious problem with the sheet, you should be ready for the game's start.

Did you look over Vortigern's sheet (posted previously in this thread) to make sure that your characters are not too similar?
