Just a quick heads-up I will be awarding an extra 25 Character Points for use exclusively on skill specialization. Each specialization costs 5 CP, so you can take 5 specializations. These will award +10 to any skill check where you use the specialization, and they help give your character more depth. Go ahead and add them to your characters where you see fit.

This will be a small house rule just for this game. In the excel character sheet, go to the Variables tab and under Character Rules, change the 1000 to 1025. Use those extra CP to buy five skill specializations.

Hey, are you guys still accepting players?  I've been reading Eclipse Phase and it sounds really cool.  I was thinking of playing a journalist, kind of a Transhumanist Hunter S. Thompson.  Let me know if I'm in!

There we go. Got the guy finished and written up. Older guy (57, huzzah), police detective, homicide squad. Investigation heavy, can throw a mean punch, shoot a gun alright, that kind of deal.

I want to take a number of languages, but I don't know if this would be useless.  Any hints or advice on this matter?

In the skills description there's a sidebar on languages. I think English, Chinese (Mandarin/Cantonese), Arabic, Hindi, and a few others are the most common
Thanos: "I am going to sacrifice the Earth to gain the love of Death"
Me: (slowly raise eyebrow) "Destroy the Earth? That would be...illogical"
Vortex: "Yes...that...would be...highly...illogical."
Thanos: "Your Star Trek references bore me."

I would allow making a Language check when speaking to someone who uses a translator to make them feel more at ease, probably with a bonus to further skill checks for social interactions with the person.

Sure, go ahead and read up on the previous posts and start creating the character. Email it to me: nightraider0[at]gmail.com

ah, yeah, just read the system.  It seems a bit too complex for my liking, I'm going to have to bow out.  You guys have fun though!

I'll be writing up that background tonight. Any word on whether or not we're getting a board?

I PM'ed Ross about it, he says he'll set it up for us. Hopefully it should be up soon.

That's too bad, thanks for taking an interest though. The system is more akin to Call of Cthluhu with rolling percentile dice under skill-based checks so it should be relatively simple once we get a game going.

Hi Dom.

I read your Google Wave and I'm checking to see if you still have room for one more player.

let me know.

Nice, there's still room for a few new players. Make sure to read on the previous posts on this thread.

What sort of character concept do you want to play?
As of now, we have a hard-boiled detective, an AGI in a human body, and a social character that is currently in creation. I also have another player interested in playing an Async.

Hmmmm.

either a spy type, or a bounty hunter.

Gives me research, social and combat skills either way.
