More Updates:

For the game, we will not use concepts, but we will us the risk factors and worst thing you ever did.

The PCs are members of a (fictional) counter-terrorism unit run by the FBI who have been trained to handle biological, chemical, and nuclear terrorist attacks. They have been quickly assembled to investigate a possible "test-run" attack at Mimetic Solutions, a content screening office outside of Iowa City, by an unknown agent using unknown means. More details to follow at briefing.

Build all characters with the above in mind, using the standard rules of spending 10 points on investigative abilities and 60 points on general abilities.

Might be a good idea to post the investigative skills we were thinking of for our characters so as not to overlap a ton. I'll post some details when I get my character concept down.

I see your game, candyman. "Shoot at the monster, it'll work, really".

Nah, that's for when we all go insane and start plugging each other.

I can't believe that you would suggest that I, of all the RPPR members, would design a game where the players were meant to kill one another. For shame.  8)

Wait, it's not pvp like the GURPS hobo fights Ross was going to run?

Nothing like it.

That was GURPS.

This is Fear Itself.

Totally different PvP.

No, it's actually because having no combat skills lets you take double points in fleeing.  Patrick wants to make sure none of us have anywhere to run.

I got chills. We're so doomed.


EDIT: Thinking I might make my character as the team's Medic, if that's alright.

Cool. I'm thinking forensics specialist, or maybe intelligence analyst.

I suppose I should put up Skype info if I want to get in on this game.
