Patrick let me know last night that he can't play, so I have an opening if anyone has time to set in and play tonight.

I could play, though I've never played Fear Itself and don't have any of the books.

How are we dealing with capped abilities?  Are we going to iron those out just prior to gametime?

I was thinking about playing something of a more (read very) beurocratic character before seeing the background text.  Now that I see that, I'm going to look at it and rethink to what would be more fitting...

Basically I liked the idea of him finding comfort and solace in buearacracy and "order."  Not to say he is trapped by the system (ideally I would have liked him to know how to move through it and use it to his advantage), he just like the consistency and sameness of it.

I'll probably be logged onto Skype from now until the game (though I might be away for up to an hour or so at some point)...

Well if you've got 9 bucks, it's available as a PDF download.

I am so bummed that I won't get a chance to play this game.

I agree with Jon/Bill, the intro for this game was amazing. It really piqued my interest.

Jon, if you plan on running the game using the CoC system, I am definitely in.

I don't have a problem learning the Fear Itself system, I would just need the time to walk through it. Seth was kind enough to offer me that chance, but unfortunately due to time and location, I would be late for the game.

However I am familiar with the CoC rules and I would love to get a chance to play a game with a group of you guys, if you wanted to get a game running.

If you plan on running this again Seth, let me know a few days ahead of time and I will put in the due diligence, familiarize myself with the Fear Itself system (or walk through it with you) and carve out a nice large chunk of time to dedicate to what sounds like a lot of fun!

Hopefully this will make the cut as an AP on the site.

Anyway, feel free Jon or Seth to send me a PM with any details. Also, I am available for discussion most evenings if any of you want to go the Skype/Gmail/Yahoo route...

Good luck with the game tonight guys!

I'll be AFK until 6:00 CST because I'll be making and eating dinner. We can iron character issues out at 6:00. If we are a player short, I may provide you with some quickly drawn up mooks to act as muscle.

In game update, the director also provides each of you with a basic floor plan of the office building. The numbered areas are used for navigational purposes.

Pretty much no matter what you do, your dude will be built for action.  There are like 10 skills and you have 60 points to spend.

Also, I'm drafting this dude

Also, I might miss a bit of the 6:00 segment as I'll probably be having dinner then.
