[OOC] Player Discussion

Hey guys. As promised, I've got an OOC Thread up here, so that you all have somewhere to chat / throw out questions whilst you wait for me to get finished up on my end. I've also provided below a character sheet layout, which I'd like you all to make use of when I give you the go-ahead to post up your characters to the Player Area.
CHARACTER NAME
Nickname(s):
Age:
Gender:
Description:
Character Template:

Life Points:
Drama Points:
Experience Points:

ATTRIBUTES
Strength, Dexterity, Constitution, Intelligence, Perception, Willpower

SKILLS
Skill List

QUALITIES
Qualities

DRAWBACKS
Drawbacks

COMBAT MANOEUVRES
Name of Manoeuvre, Bonus: , Base Damage:
Notes:

Name of Manoeuvre, Bonus: , Base Damage:
Notes:

HISTORY
Character Background

POSSESSIONS
List of Key Possessions
Once the above has been posted, I'd then like the player to post a reply, containing the following information:
Personality:
Strengths:
Weaknesses:
Romantic Interests:
Role within the Group:
Short Term Goals:
Long Term Goals:

Allies/Contacts: (If the character has the Contacts Qualities) Provide details on the individuals in question

Enemies: (If the character has the Adversary Drawback) Provide details on the individuals in question
The above can/will be modified as time passes, but it's a useful quick reference for me.

It's worth noting early on, by the way, that I will be adding/taking away Qualities/Drawbacks as the game progresses, based upon the story and the events of the episodes. As per the book, you will not be given experience points, or need to pay anything, if I award these traits myself due to in-game justification; if a player wants to grab new traits of his own accord then he must pay the cost, as per the rulebook.

Though it has been stated before, it's worth repeating now as a parting note: where the Buffy and Angel rulebooks differ in rules/Qualities, assume that the Buffy rulebook is correct.

Also, a question for my players: is this font easily readable? For my two games, I like to post in fonts that I personally prefer, but not at the expense of game efficiency.

My young eyes have had no issues with any of your fonts, though I understand how some people might think some of them were too small.

Okay guys, I'd like everyone -- Ergonomic Cat, Krypton, Haraphen, and SRJJJB -- to post up their character sheets in the Player Area, using the layout I've given above. I'll make each sheet Private, and then give the characters one final look through; if anything needs to be changed, we'll sort it. When all of the characters are done, we can begin with the game.

Yeah, I didn't go on the computer at home yesterday, which is where I have the sheet saved - was watching the World Cup, and generally just kind of feeling computered-out. I'll get on that tonight, for you!

Both characters have been made Private, so please let me know if anyone can access sheets not their own. In the meantime, can you both please change around your Manoeuvres a little, adjusting to the format I showed above? Just makes it a lot easier to read.

I'll look over both sheets, but the game'll only begin when SRJJJB and Haraphen have put their sheets up too, and both have been fully approved.

Lastly, I've like everyone to make a list of what threads/sub-forums they can see; of those that they can see, I'd also like to know what threads they can access.

No worries, SRJJJB, just get it up when you can. Once it's up, I'll give the sheets a final sweep; then the game will begin.

SRJJJB, your thread is now Private. I still need everyone to post on here all of the threads/forums that they can see, and make a note of those that they can access too, however.

Apparently, Cat's daughter's eager to join the game too, so I'm going to give her a chance to throw a character together before I begin the game. This isn't much of a delay since I still want to go over everyone's sheets one final time (which I will do either tonight or, more likely, in the next two days before/after work).

In the meantime, I ask everyone to double check their math; you might see a problem that I miss, assuming that there are any.

I can See that all of their character threads exist, but can't access them. Likewise, the private subforums you may or may not have are appropriately invisible. Microsoft Excel did my math for me, and they're much smarter than I...

He knows, SRJJJB; I asked him, and everyone else, to tell me what sheets they can see, and which of those they can access.
