I use whatever the person wants me to- it's not that serious to me, but it is to them. When writing, I tend to use they. But in that case, I'm dealing with a construct.
This is also my way, Comrade Chuck.

Non-gendered/nonbinary pronouns I ran across in some books years ago. They were memorable and less clunky or error prone than using they/them because it doesn't directly map to a plural when you want to indicate singular.
Yeah, makes sense.
As a random trivia, Bulgarian (and probably all languages from the same group) has three grammatical genders, the last of which is sometimes mistakenly translated as "neuter"...but it's more exact to call it "middle" or "average", as in mathematical average.

Yeah, I've seen several different options - zhe was the one that seemed least klunky to me, though there are a lot.

Yeah, I'm familiar with the concept, just hadn't met the ve and vr. OTOH, it was really fitting to use artificially-constructed pronouns for a construct PC:thumbsup:!
I just thought that Telok might have come up with this by himself, by going from VR instead of his/her and extrapolating to ve...which would have amounted to going over the top for a forum challenge:thumbsup:!

Yeah I'd say that, given how it's apparent that there are real people who want to use pronouns other than he, she, and they, a person has a solid foundation if they want to use an alternative gender neutral or non-binary pronoun because to them individually the connotations of "they" are too indicative of a plural. It has the added bonus that the more people use those additional pronouns in writing, the more they can become normalised as part of everyday vernacular for people who want to be identified with them.
In my observations, it doesn't really work like that. But that's neither here nor...anywhere, actually:grin:!

I think my view on this is a lot less carefully thought out than other people's here.

If someone tells me their name is "Dave" I'm not going to insist on calling them "David" or "Davey". Same applies here. Just a matter of manners for me.

System :: Microlite20
Version :: 2012 Edition

Today I'll roll up a character in Microlite20, another free system that
weighs in at a whopping 1400 pages in two volumes. Much of this is bumpf
though, and the actual core rules are only about a dozen pages. It's
another oldschool D&D-inspired game, though with only three attributes
instead of six plus another four skills.

Attributes are 4d6 drop lowest, and I ended up with my DEX higher than
the others so I chose a halfling rogue character, who gets an additional
DEX bonus plus extra damage when sneaking up on an unaware foe.

Code:
Name:         Bletchley
Race & Class: Halfling Rogue

STR : 12 (1)
DEX : 16 (3)
MIND: 12 (1)

Physical     : 1
Subterfuge   : 4
Knowledge    : 1
Communication: 1

HP   : 17
AC   : 13 + 2
Level: 1
GP   : 27

Light Crossbow (1d8, 80ft)    Backpack
Sling          (1d4, 50ft)    Belt Pouch
Dagger         (1d4, 10ft)    Bedroll
Leather Armour (+2 AC)        Oil Flask x 10
Thief Tools                   Flint & Steel
Traveller Outfit               Shovel
Hooded Lantern                Caltrops x 2
Signal Whistle                Waterskin
Rations x 4

Backstory: Bletchley was a restless kid from a peaceful halfling village,
who used to drive the other villagers mad by snaeking around and playing
harmless pranks. One day a party of adventurers passed through the
village and Bletchley was inspired- he had to become an adventurer
himself, go on adventures, defeat evil, and return with riches and renown.

System :: Dungeons the Dragoning 40k 7e
Version :: Telok's

Shorty loves fuzzy bunnies. When steel girder fell on head fuzzy bunny spirit came to save Shorty. Now Shorty is official druid. Shorty and Bun-Bun do stuff for big chief druids. (Originally the concept used daemonhost for extra toughness or atlantean for extra casting and both gave abjuration magic to help. This one uses wraith because its funny and I havent used that yet.)

Squat wraith druid and immortal animal companion.

Stats: str 2, dex 1, con 5 (tough it out), int 1, wis 5 (unsurprised), will 4 (fearless-ish), cha 2, fel 2, cmp 2.

Skills: brawling 3, athletics(con) 1, ballistics 2, animal ken(cmp) 4 (calming voice), scrutiny(cmp) 3, perform(fel) 2, perception(wis) 1, medical(wis) 3, common lore(int) 1, craft(int) 1.

Backgrounds: backing 2 (druid council), artifact 3+1 (wraithbone heart - roll warpy crap twice and pick one), mentor 1 (wise old druid), contact 1 (dragon).

Species: squat, size 3, +con, +common lore, +craft, +2 size for resilience calculations (really just +1 resilience).

Exaltation: wraith, dematerialize (spend 1 resource to get phasing trait for turns = max resolve or go into the umbra), 2nd death (gain undead type & ignore crits - instead lose resource = wounds), deathsight (see the umbra at will & spend a resource to see dead person's last sight), ghost dice (resource spent for extra dice on rolls does lol-bad weirdness on 1s and lol-good weirdness on 10s & optional rule is roll warp crap if any 10s but ignore results of 75+ on the d100 table), resource = ectoplasm equal to resolve (will+cmp) & lose 1/day unless "adopt the trapping of death" & regain 2/hour in umbra & die if in umbra and at zero resource and take more wounds.

Power stat 1: cast augury spell with power+wisdom for the casting roll.

Class: ovate (druid track level 1)

Starter 600 xp & load up on hinderances: clueless (-1k0 bluff intimidate & social combat refute actions), illiterate (200xp buy off later), intolerance - construction & repair workers (-2k0 socials), all thumbs (-1k0 all machinery & electronics & tech), fast asset (+2 speed & x7 run in light/no armor), no one tougher squat asset (use con instead of dex for defense), +1 composure, +1 artifact background, druid's oath (for healing & transmutation spells roll warps twice and choose as long as no metal armor & kinda mostly respect nature), healing magic 1 (shield other spell - take wounds inflicted on another), armor prof light, animal companion, veteran (+wis +animal ken +enemy - that girder was no accident).

Gear: Hand Weapon, Las Pistol, 2 e-clips, Knife, Quilted Vest, Robes, lucky rabbit foot Charm, book of Poetry.

ToDo: 1 feat exits ovate for improved animal comp. feat, 100xp for healing 2 & cure wounds spell, 100xp for spell focus healingn(+5 result on successful casts). Maybe consider getting a high quality cyber-brain in play to up int to 2 & get into cleric for abjuration magic?

Hp 18, resilience 4, armor 0 & 3 body & 5 gizzards, defense 34, dodge pfft!, perception 6k5, speed 5 & run 35, mental defense 15, resolve 6, resource 6, devotion 6 (luna), hero points 2.

Gun 2k2 for 2k2 energy, penetration 0, 30m, 30 ammo, reliable.
Brawl 4k3 for 2k1 impact, penetration 0, inflicts fatigue

Phasing: pass through physical stuff, +10 stealth hiding inside stuff, only hit by magic & magic weapons & power weapons.
Undead type: immune to eat, sleep, breathe, fatigue, bleeding, stunning!
Casting 6k5 or fettered 3k3 but you only need to cast Shield other once a day, roll 3 warps and choose one if you keep exploded casting dice or pesh the spell.

Edit: forgot the bunny

Sir Brion O Shea is lucky to have a generous uncle. His own father is a landed knight, but poor, and his resources were barely enough for Sir Brion's oldest brother to be properly outfitted as a knight. Brion always had a great relationship with the common folk, which impressed his uncle (who as the elder was much wealthier than Brion's father) and led to Sir Brion also becoming a knight. Sir Brion loves all of his family dearly and does not know that his oldest brother might begrudge Sir Brion's fortune and harbor some jealousy at Sir Brion's 'undeserved' luck.

9-12 Incapacitated The character may try to stay up with a TN15 stamina roll. If successful, he may continue to act, but with a -3D penalty.

Hei (renamed Faith): 1d

Special notes: She is an alchemist fang seoi (feng shui) master. Given the time and ingredients (she has a pouch with basic ones), she can make other potions as well, using Occult Knowledge. She also has three prepared potions:
Potion of Flame Breath
Potion of Stone Skin (6 hours duration)
Potion of Yang Hei Restoration

Brenda is a PR person (reflected in her Charm) who has been doing faang seoi work as family tradition. She was, however, uninterested in her family's Shaolin Tiger style, and moved to practice JKD, which she mixes with Capoeira.
However, she took as fish to water to her family's external alchemy, so the head of the family (her mother, in that case) didn't press the matters. (If the girl comes back, she'd teach her. If not, a family style is not to be revealed to outsiders!)

Note: Tony is a master of Internal Alchemy, as opposed to Brenda's External brand. He can make himself faster, able to jump higher, and so on, by rolling the relevant skills (with a lower difficulty as assessed by the GM).
However, he needs to expand Yang Hei, and he only has 3 points of that. Rest and recovery might be necessary.

Bio: Tony grew up on the streets, and knows them better than most people. Then he fell in with a Hung gar master who was also a respected faang seoi. He adopted him, taught him his skills and Tony is continuing his legacy, protecting mortals.

Day 21: Swashbucklers of the 7 Skies

Name
: Eloy Ruiz
Foible: Loyal to the Colronan Throne

+2 [Good] Nationality: Colronan Royalist
+2 [Good] Motivation: Duty to the throne
+2 [Good] Past: Tutored by Thiago Arroyo
+2 [Good] Colronan Musketeer*
+2 [Good] Aristocrat: Knighted
+2 [Good] Minions
+2 [Good] Gear: Father's Sword

Fencing schools:
Nangatrad (4pts) [Idiom: Acrobatic; Weapon: Saber; Situation: On Cluttered Ground; Maneuver: Parry]

Techniques:
Tactical command (1pt) [Idiom: Authoritative; Situation: When in battle; Situation: Has highest rank]

Background:
Eloy is and always has been burdened by expectation and obligation. His father and hit father's father were both knights in the king's musketeers. That he would follow suit was a matter of honor and duty. Every moment of his childhood was carefully managed. When he was old enough, there were tutors for every subject: math, science, business, history (especially military) and theology. But his favorite was swordplay, under the tutelage of the great Thiago Arroyo**. The old man was everything young Eloy wanted to grow up to be. And in the evenings, oh the music he would play!

Eventually Eloy indeed followed in his forebear's footsteps and joined the Musketeers in the king's service. He had grossly underestimated how downright political being in the king's service would be. From his years of tutelage, he was prepared for a soldier's work. What he hadn't expected was the jockeying for favor and position among the musketeers themselves. Being something of an idealist, it sickened him, and he soon grew to resent being in the king's service.

Rather than seek a way out of service and bring dishonor upon himself and his family, he sought a way around. He would volunteer for any and every special assignment that was sure to take him from the court and the company of his fellow musketeers. He was sure to carry out each of these assignments with the utmost care and excellence, and before long developed a reputation for being a highly regarded special operative. Now he answers to none but the king himself, entrusted with only the most critical of missions on the king's behalf. He is given an unprecedented amount of freedom to carry these out as he sees fit. For his newest assignment, he's going to need a crew...

Day 20 (Delayed)

System: Tunnels & Trolls
Version: Deluxe
Publisher: Flying Buffalo Inc.

System Notes: I went with standard random chargen here; the character starts at 2nd level due to his high Charisma score (since level in T&T is determined by the tens digit of the highest ability).

Name: Mal'Thel
Kindred: Elf
Type: Rogue
Level: 2

Height: 6'0"
Weight: 200 lbs
Hair: Blonde
Eyes: Green

Strength 13
Constitution 6
Dexterity 16
Speed 12
Intelligence 16
Wizardry 16
Luck 10
Charisma 24

Combat Adds: +5
Carried Weight Possible: 130 lbs

Rogue Skills: Magical Attunement (can learn spells and start with a spell at first level), Talented (one extra Talent at first level; extra Rogue-related Talent at every even-numbered level)

Talents: Gambling, Seduction, Stealth, Streetwise
Spells: Knock Knock

Armor: Light Leather
Weapons: Medium Sword, Medium Dagger, Medium Pocket Sling, 15 Lead Shot
Equipment: Basic Delver's Package

Backstory: Mal'Thel is a roguish yet handsome elf who disdains honest work and avoids it as much as possible. He supports himself by gambling, the support of his..."patrons", and the occasional bit of petty thievery. Needless to say, he has a knack for acquiring enemies too, so he seldom stays in one place for very long. He's decent enough with a blade or his sling if it comes to it as well, but to him, fights are something best avoided.

System :: Convergence Point
Version :: 1.9

21) Chris (Christa) Sato
Purist note: I can not find the correct spelling for the Japanese name that shifts between male and female by adding one syllable. There were several. Rather than do it wrong, I opted for an English equivalent (from the dub).

All this set of characters are based on the "anime" of The Neo Frontiers. The full anime series Neo Frontiers is not supposed to focus on any particular character but follows several characters throughout the course of the series. Although each one gets to be a star in one episode some just continue to follow their life. They are all interlinked around the high school "stage" characters. They will be at the level of when they first appear in the "anime".

Name: Chris (Christa) Sato
Core Trait: Human Wrangler of The Neo Frontiers Era
Mal


When we first meet Chris (EP 3), he is a classmate in the same grade as Simone, Kaede, et all. He has a more distinctive round face and light brown hair (longer than most males we see in the show who all have shortcuts). We will see Chris around the school in the background.

In EP15 (I believe), the audience sees Chris again. They are talking at the Frjtz with a girl in a school uniform that they seem to know. The girl has that round face and light brown hair. It is Kaede who says, "We will see you later, Chris". "-ta." (making it two distinct syllables). You can see her face scrunch up, as she kicks herself. But Christa continues on unfazed.

Christa has a job as a hostess /wrangler for a restaurant/cafe. We see it twice in the series. Simone and family for just a dinner in EP10, Christa seated them and was on screen for like six seconds. The second was Episode 15, when Kaede, with her family, came in for her birthday (making a big deal about going to a restaurant). Note: This does show the difference in the girls' different social and economic statuses.

The restaurant in question is The Blue Stage. It is a retro-music themed restaurant. The Servers are all Bio-Meken of famous singers of an earlier time. Upon occasion, a server will "do a set" on the stage; then go back to serving. Christa is the hostess in a more restaurant sense, taking reservations, assigning tables, and getting servers. (All while wearing a cute black dress and an animation error.) We'll see her in charge of the bio-meken, directing and helping them along.

The Bio-Meken we see are Norma Jean (Marilyn), Elvis, Crosby, and some other artists I could not place/ name. (Nor can anyone else I talked with.)

Chris/Christa is a Mal. (A term we did not get until Series 2)

Mal (M au ll or pronounce as Mall or Moll in English ) This is an in-world slang term for a Boy that is very feminine in appearance or a Girl who is very masculine in appearance, to the point of confusing people. They often have body languages that go with this look. (Their biologic attraction may be reproductive or other). The term comes from an Idol (and a media show they were on). For many, Mals are an ideal of stylish good looks. They are often well dressed and very composed... as well as slender and athletic. Tragically, the inspiring Idol, Projat Mal died in a plane accident just as their personal career as an actor and solo act was just taking off in series 2.

However, we don't get to meet the media star until series 2 except for one brief reference as somebody tries to put on their audio disc in a player in series 1.

Note: In the Neo Frontiers Era, they seem to pronoun based on how you are dressed/ act. So a Boy with a feminine appearance will be addressed female.

Note: In Series 2, we will see Christa again. Norma Jean is her roommate (?). She has a new hostess job at a much higher class restaurant. She is both the hostess and is in charge of the marionette meken servers. She is also dressed in eveningwear and has serious jewelry on. She has a very feminine shape at this point, so some degree of intervention occurred.

When I first saw the video I caught something that looked funny. It was like an animation error where you could see an "unsightly bulge" in the waitress/ hostess's skirt. Later it'll be pointed out by the owner of the video that whom I thought was a female character with an animation error (twice) was being voiced by a male actor in the Japanese version. "She" had a deep female voice in the English dub. (Later my friend pointed out voice credits for "Chris" were the same as "Christa".)

The bits in episode 15 stuck in my head. Chris becomes Christa in the middle of series 1 and no one comments on it. Nobody blinked that this person was dressed differently or even existed. The only thing we get is a weird bit of dubbing which was Kaede going Chris - Tah making it two distinct syllables instead of putting it all together. Which is an obvious oops. It is a very different world from ours.

There is a whole subsection on gender and such in the Neo Frontiers because of this one character.

System :: Pugmire
Version :: ---

It's Dungeons and Dragons, but you are dogs! The basic premise is that
humans vanished mysteriously eons ago, and now animals have become
sentient and rule the world. All that's left of the precursor civilisation
is relic artefacts and vague commandments "be a good dog!"

There's nothing much wrong with the system that I can see, but to be honest
I am getting burned out on D&D derivatives and too much cutesiness gets grating
after a while. There are lots of cute pictures of dogs in adventuring gear
though, so be prepared to go "awwww" frequently as you flip through the
rule book.

Code:
Name: Viktor Wolfhound
Calling: Hunter
Breed: Runner
Background: Free Dog

STR: 13 (1)
DEX: 17 (3)
CON: 12 (1)
INT: 10 (0)
WIS: 14 (2)
CHA:  8 (-1)

Stamina points: 11
Stamina dice: d10
Proficiency bonus: 2

Defense: 13
Initiative: 3
Speed: 35 / 50

Tricks: Speedy Runner, Respected by Strays, Simple Weapon Aptitude, Natural Explorer
Skills: Know Nature, Survive, Traverse, Sense Motive

Traits: What is most important to me is learning what the Old Ones would have expected of me.
        I am inspired by my bond to the outdoors.
        No matter what I can't resist my insatiable curiosity.

Viktor is a hunter formerly in service of the city. Not getting along with people
generally, he found himself spending less and less time in Pugmire and
now spends most of his time outdoors, only very occasionally returning
to the city. Viktor is a very good boy. Yes he is. Such a good boy.

System: Dungeons & Dragons
Version: Rules Cyclopedia with GAZ7: The Northern Reaches
Publisher: TSR/Wizards of the Coast

System Notes: The Gazeteer series of supplements for BECMI D&D often included variant rules for character creation that incorporated the background material in the supplement, and The Northern Reaches is a good example. It has tables for fleshing out the character's story before they became an adventurer (family background, early experiences, etc), as well as a personality mechanic system that seems to be heavily inspired by Pendragon.

Backstory: Thora of Clan Fynmark, or Thora the Quiet as she is sometimes known, is an apprentice mage in the Kingdom of Vestland. She lives outside the town of Sudorn, on Vestfjord Bay, and studies with a wizard who has a small tower in the town. Having been raised in a fishing family, she is also a skilled sailor, and dreams of sailing away from Vestland to explore distant lands and seek out arcane knowledge, or perhaps heading west into the hills and forests to delve into forgotten tombs and ruins. Anything is better than a life of mending nets and boatfuls of herring.

System: Codex Martialis
Version: 2022

This is one of the pre-gen characters which comes with the Road to Monsterberg adventure series.

1674341529294.png

Kalina Krol Age: 33 Origin: Prussia, Poland Estate: Patrician

Character sheet here

Appearance: Kalina is slim and tall, with intense grey eyes and long dark hair. She is well dressed with a certain elegance, and sometimes wears some noticeable jewelry including a few talismans. Other times she puts away her weapons and her jewelry to wear her beguine’s habit which is similar to a nun’s habit.

Arms and armor: Kalina has a sidesword and a latchet crossbow which she typically carried on her horse, now that she is on foot she sometimes carries the sword strapped to her hip and sometimes rolled up in a bundle. If she has armor it is worn beneath her clothing.

Personality: She is fairly quiet, but extremely judicious in her comments, often thinking of things that the others hadn’t considered. Her words carry a great deal of weight, and she was effectively one of the three leaders of the group during their voyage from Belgrade to Krakow.

History: She does not discuss her purpose for being in Hungary, but it is known that she was close to the inner circle of Fra John of Capistrano. And as soon as he died, she had little to say about him.

Language: She speaks Low German at an expert level, as well as Latin and Polish

Private Bio: Though she is dressed like a humble Beguine, and she is in fact a widow, Kalina has the bearing of a member of the elite. Indeed, her family the Krols are prominent both within the German-speaking Danzig patriciate and among the Polish gentry in Prussia. She was working secretly on behalf of Danzig to keep an eye on Fra Capistrano, who she followed from Breslau all the way down to Hungary (and is now somewhat retracing her steps). The Prussian Confederation and her relative in the Danzig Senat were very concerned that Capistrano was going to rabble-rouse on behalf of the Teutonic Order, which could affect their war with the Order. They will be relieved by the news of his death.

Her current mission is to proceed to Breslau where Capistrano still has followers, learn their plans, and more generally to determine if the Silesians intend to interfere in Prussia. Kalina is an excellent Spy, with great skill in diplomacy and stealth. She has a knack for convincing people what she wants and she can learn what people know, talk them into or out of things, or just confuse them fairly easily. She is attractive and not above using her looks to advance her goals. She can change her appearance considerably, from a nondescript Beguine most people would ignore, to a much more striking style hard to ignore, especially for men.

Fighting Strategy: She carries a self-spanning latchet crossbow, which she will use when fighting at a distance, though it does not cause great damage and is mainly useful for hunting small game. She carries a sidesword and knows how to use it, though she prefers to avoid close combat. She secretly wears a fine mail corselet under her habit which will help her stay alive in a fight. Her most important fighting Feat is her Distance Fighting MF, which grants her a Free Dice on Active Defense so long as she has room to move back. When fighting in close combat she will use one MP to attack and 2 for Defense or movement: stab and retreat. She will also use her Sidestep and Ringen MF (Free Dice on any grapple attempt) to avoid grapple. If Grappling is inevitable, she will switch to fighting with her small dagger, and use Ringen MF to try to throw her opponent.

Magic: Kalina is a spellcaster of some skill (Sage 2nd level). She carries a powerful Talisman of Freyja, which is active, and grants +2 to Spellcraft rolls, +2 to Bluff and Diplomacy (above what is on her sheet), and +1 to Defense in combat (above what is on her sheet). She knows the spells Dance of Idise, The Flight of Devana, and Holda’s Disguise. She is eager to learn more Cunning Magic if there is any opportunity.

Special: Flattery (Free Dice on Bluff or Diplomacy attempts toward people of higher status), Detect Status (Free Dice on any skill check related to determining someone's social or political status), Peace of God (when wearing her habit, Free Dice on any Bluff, Intimidate or Diplomacy check related to evading a fight, robbery or harassment), Patron (can call on the city of Danzig for help or it's associates), Researcher (Free Dice on any knowledge check with access to a library or equivalent resource).

TardisCaptain TardisCaptain aw, man! I was just thinking about Cyber Generation the other day as a possible game to try out for the challenge. Not sure if my old book still lives or where it is if it's still around. That's a lot of games though.

I ended focusing on Savage Worlds to really get a feel for it, cuz I tried it out for the first time last week and it really hit the sweet spot for simplicity, with enough customization. Started reading Mythras today and might try it out as well. But Cyber Generation brings back memories, granted I only tried it out briefly in the 90s.

Wanziipah's parents are both well-known in their community for their skill at healing and spiritual guidance. They tried to guide Wanziipah to follow on their path to act as a helpful resource for their neighbourhood, but Wanziipah wasn't interested. He saw but didn't understand his family's comfortable but modest lifestyle, and saw the ecstatic reactions of Ollama fans when their teams won and the glittering lives of the star players. Wanziipah was determined (and maybe desperate) to win that acclaim for himself. He spent all of his spare time as a youth at the gym working out or the local Ollama field practicing. His parents saw his obvious determination and, although a bit disappointed, supported him in his passion. Wanziipah went professional as soon as he could and his skill and theatrics quickly made him a crowd favourite.

However, it seems some of his parents' teachings may have sunk in, despite Wanziipah's best efforts. He has begun to feel that his fame is perhaps a bit limited. Sure, he has endorsement deals and fans, but is only respected as an athlete. Wanziipah is starting to want more, to be recognized as worthy even outside the arena. Although not selected for training - yet - Wanziipah has started following around Suyata (marshals and troubleshooters) and barging in on their missions, hoping to impress them enough to be offered a role. Then he'd be able to show everyone that he's more than just another athlete!

Character 22
Game: The Laundry
System: BRP

Name: Holly Jordan
Age: 24
Personality: Nutter. Your character can safely be categorised as insane, though they are functional and able to work within the organisation of the Laundry. Rational thought and problem-solving methods are neglected: insane leaps of logic are the primary means of attaining goals.
Fetish: Company. A character suffering from a fetish becomes unreasonably obsessed with an object, person or condition.
The fetish becomes an emotional security blanket or the object of an obsession (see ‘Obsession’, page 73). If the character is denied their fetish, they must succeed in a Resistance roll with their POW vs. the potency of the disorder to remain in control. If the character fails, they suffer severe distress.
Treat this as an episode of temporary insanity.
Profession: Lawyer
Lauundry Assignment: Counter-Possession
Wealth Level: Affluent

Possessions: Clothing, Pocket Money and Savings, Photograph of Parents, Secure Smartphone, Personal Ward, Warrant Card

Background: When other people are with her, Holly seems perfectly normal. In fact, her high POW means she appears more stable than many employees of The Laundry. It's only when left to her own devices she crumbles. Proving that insanity is no barrier to getting ahead in The Laundry, she has achieved the prestigious position of an entry level Counter-Posession Exorcist. Her seemingly random but notably accurate flashes of insight are already marking her out as one to be watched for future promotion. As long as her personal life doesn't get in the way. She has had a string of disastrous relationships, often with her fellow co workers. The most notorious was the time she dated a Deep One Hybrid. Still, she is determined to climb the ladder of The Laundry corporate structure and is likely to either go far or crack up completely under the pressure.

Ivan Zovko and head of a rival crime family. Petra's death means war between the families, and both
families want Dominik dead for what he's done.

So, despite no ambitions of ever going into space, Dominik and his own girlfriend, Valentina, find themselves
aboard the first freighter they could book passage on. It cost them every credit they had to their name.
They don't know what they're going to do at the ship's next port. But they'll think of something.
They gotta keep moving. They'll think of something...

Chargen Notes:
I'd initially imagined a man with a grand and illustrious criminal career, and in typical Traveller fashion managed to fail my survival roll only two terms in. So, here we have a classic example of reimagining the lifepath based on die rolls.

System :: Convergence Point
Version :: 1.9

Day 22 April/ Sakura Sato
All this set of characters are based on the "anime" of The Neo Frontiers. The full anime series Neo Frontiers is not supposed to focus on any particular character but follows several characters throughout the course of the series. Although each one gets to be a star in one episode some just continue to follow their life. They are all interlinked around the high school "stage" characters. They will be at the level of when they first appear in the "anime".

The Dub of series 1 calls her April. The Dub of series 2 (and the credits) call her Sakura. The purists can not blame me for this one.

Name: April/ Sakura Sato
Core Trait: Human (Middle School) Student of the Neo Frontiers Era


April is a tomboy at this point in her life. She is very physically active and a gymnast in training. She is seen playing with the boys more than once. (And possibly the most stylish tomboy out there.) However, she seems to be able to switch to "girly mode" on a dime. She dresses nicely and acts differently when she does. We can see her sibling's influence here.

April is a minor character in series one. She is often being dragged about by her sibling Chris/Christa. Sometimes she is with her father (for non-explained reasons), whom she has wrapped around her little finger. (See the bits of dialog around several of the Chief's press moments if you don't believe me.) She has a few lines of dialog throughout the series, but most of them are fairly unimportant. She seems to serve no purpose but to inflict comedy on The Satos.

It is safe to say, this changes tremendously in Series Two. She becomes the main Mystic Warrior in the series, "starring" in more episodes than any other character. She is one of the main reasons we can tell Series One and Two are actually related.

Note: Since it seems Series Two took on its "significant thematic changes" during the time the OVA was being animated, I wonder what the plans for her were in the original outline for the second season.


Description: Obviously a Sato family girl. She looks much like her sibling. She has the same light brown hair. Hers is long and usually in a curly pony tail. (It is well taken care of and sometimes curly.) She has a fairly round face, but more of a heart-shaped one. She is currently a tween, so lots of changes to come. She normally dresses in "play wear"/ boyish clothing. They are better coordinated than most children. However, when she "gets her girl on", she is quite striking. Even the mayor comments on it.

Write Up Convergence Point

Name: April/ Sakura Sato
Core Trait: Human Middle School Student of the Neo Frontiers Era
Lv 1 /EP Mod 1.25 (1.1 -.3 +.45)

You know from a gaming perspective, starting her at level one in Series One could explain her seeming starting competence in Series Two. She hasn't earned a ton of experience, but some... enough for a head start. And then she has a "radiation accident"/ Origin moment, changing her around some.

Potential: 10 pts +.25x
Potential is used in some urban fantasy chronicles, and a few comic styled chronicles. It gives the character "potential" to grow into a meta set for some "special power". This potential can be spent at any time appropriate to the story, often to ignore a death impairment (or other equally bad things). [The character with potential is bitten by a vampire will be a 10 point of vampire powers vampire, or the spectacular firey car accident could grant them fire powers.] Her actual write-up, if you had only seen Series 1 would not include this. We have the advantage of knowing she is the central character for Series 2. So I opt to give her potential.

Day 22

System: Zenobia
Version: N/A
Publisher: Zozer Games

System Notes: This is another Zozer game that uses its own system rather than a Cepheus variant, set in the eastern Mediterranean towards the end of the Roman Empire (3rd century AD). It's a historical fantasy setting rather than straight history, though, since magic and mythological monsters are features of the game.

Name: Azi
Culture of Origin: Aramaean
Social Class: Slave
Past Experience: Gladiator

Might 3
Fate 5
Hits 20
Craft 3
Learning 2

Lanaguages: Aramaean (Fluent), Imperial (Basic), Ionic (Basic)

Skills: Killing Blow, Streetwise

Armor: Leather Cuirass, Helm
Weapons: Spear, Short Sword
Equipment: Tunic, Sandals, Cloak, Pack, Flint and Steel, 3 Torches, Waterskin, Pouch, 30 Denarii

Backstory: Azi never knew his real family, having been orphaned at a very early age. He was raised as a slave and was trained as a gladiator from the time he could first hold a sword. He grew to become a formidable fighter, and traveled through the Empire waging combat to the entertainment of the crowds. With success came money, and with money, he was eventually able to purchase his freedom. Having become a wanderer and adventurer, he has come to the city of Palmyra to find work. Since fighting for money is what he knows best, that's likely what it will be.

System :: Tinyd10
Version :: Fantasy Core

Another fairly obscure free system today: Tiny D10. There's not much to
say about this system. It's a bit dry, looks reasonably serviceable, but
I think it's unfinished. For example, you roll for money but on the
equipment table no prices for anything are listed, so I didn't know what
I was allowed to buy or could afford. I didn't put a whole lot of
effort into this one.

Code:
Name:  Grognar Grumblebeard
Race and Class: Dwarf Wizard

Aspect: 0
Intellect: 2
Power : 1
Reflex: 0
Toughness: 5
HP: 6
PP: 5
MP: 7
Gold: 206

Skills: Crafting, Prestidigitation, Spellcasting, Splash Effect

Grognar is a rare example of a dwarf more apt with spells than with
metallurgy. Reluctantly leaving his mountain halls for the promise
of riches, he eventually found an adventuring party to join and,
despite his cantankerous temper, has become a valued and respected
member of the group.

Character a Day 2023: Day 5: Bulletproof Blues​

Bulletproof Blues was my first writing credit. It wasn't much, but it helped me get over the imposter syndrome symptom of not being a writer because I wasn't published. Of course, there's a lot more where that came from. But at least I can look at the game and see that I contributed to it.

Name: Carter “Shard” Waring
Epithet: The Prism's Light
Identity: Public
Origin: Altered
Archetype: The Mirror
Motivation: Passion
Team Affiliation: Solo
Base of Operations: Los Angeles,CA, USA
Range of Operations: Global

Description​

Age: 36
Nationality: Dual United States/German Citizenship
Height: 6'3” (190.5cm)
Weight: 152 lbs (69 kg)
Hair: Black
Eyes: Green

A lanky 6'3” stature makes Carter look more gaunt than he actually is, but his thin frame hides a power that seems to radiate from his dark green eyes. The style of his hair depends on what state his mind is in- whether it's a coiffed fro or a tangle on top of his head. He doesn't wear a costume, but is rather a more flambodyant dresser, his dress being more avant garde, though it's not an affectation- it's just how his mind works. Tattoos of various types haphazardly entertwine on the cavans of his light coffee colored skin, with multiple earrings and one nose ring in his left nostril almost an afterthought.

Personality​

Many who do not know him mistake him for shallow and flighty, but he is usually deep in his own mind, visualizing the world through a unique lens. Music and colors stain his sight, he can't remember if he's always been this way, or if it is because of the power he now possesses. But it is a struggle to pull himself back to more a mundane focus. He can do it, but he finds few things that entice him to do so.

Carter's personality drives his use of his powers- he's more concerned with the outward expression of his powers rather than the effectiveness. He might use his mimicked powers in a manner that is totally alien to the person that has had them for years, while ignoring more obvious uses.

History​

Carter doesn't remember his father, other than shapes and images, and a name on a birth certificate that says he was a German citizen. He loves his mother now, but he realizes its her loss that makes it so. In reality, though he allows himself the illusion that she tried, she was an addict with Munchausen's by Proxy. The worst part of it is that he did have issues and is on the spectrum, but that wasn't what she expressed his condition as – it was too abstract, and didn't get her the meds she needed for addiction. Her overdose was in many ways freeing, though he found himself in the not so tender embraces of the street, he at least knew that the street was not suppposed to love him. Music and art were his way from the mean streets, and though he struggled, the beauty of it didn't judge him nor want him to be anything other than what he was. He worked at a small bespoke mirror/glass shop to make ends meet. He didn't mind the work- it gave him inspiration for his art, and he was able to take remainders to use in his studio. His boss also sometimes helped him move his art, and introduced him to clients. One of those clients wasn't what he seemed, and the piece of art that he commissioned Carter to do changed him. He's not sure how or why, but he found he was able to augment his performances with whatever his mind could dream up- and the drugs he took meant that his mind was able to dream up some really outrageous things. Where he was a virtuoso musician and talented artist before, his new abilities allowed him to fuse the two into something new. Soon he found himself signed and thrust into the spotlight. But for himself, he still resides in his mind, making wonderful sounds and colors.

The wise ones say that Beoin's foolishness will one day lead him to turn away from his companions to carry on a fight, a prophecy of shame that preys on his mind.

Day 23) Richard Husband
All this set of characters are based on the "anime" of The Neo Frontiers. The full anime series Neo Frontiers is not supposed to focus on any particular character but follows several characters throughout the course of the series. Although each one gets to be a star in one episode some just continue to follow their life. They are all interlinked around the high school "stage" characters. They will be at the level of when they first appear in the "anime".

Name: Richard Husband:
Core Trait: Human A.A. Administrator of the Neo Frontiers Era


He is one of the minor characters that help illuminate various sections of the world in the Anime.

We saw him once with Mr. Howerhousen and congratulated the Hornet for The EP rescue and landing. Yet, he is a very important man locally, with a very important job.

His is a story of hard work and putting in his time. He got his college degree in Astronautical Engineering. Unable to get an engineering job, he worked an air/space traffic control job (which is a UZ job with the Ministry of Air and Space, which is now....@). He worked his way up from the screens and into the offices. He did special projects. He worked with unions. He understood the science behind the ships his ministry was building. He eventually took on a position in the prestigious Astronautical Agency. He is now the director for the local spaceport and all A.A. facilities in and around The City. The town's big employer is the A.A. They are assembling parts of ships and beacon satellites. Launch equipment too. He is being groomed for a regional directorship and eventually a high position in the ministry.

We most people talk about The Agency they're talking about the Astronautical agency. Because the Astronautical Agency or AA (and spin-off agencies and companies that are basically AA extensions) are the main employers and most important companies currently. They are the main driver of The Neo Frontier of Space – and other areas. They do science and engineering of habitats, space, and spaceships. (Some of this science spills over into other areas. So when most people say the agency they mean the Astronautical Agency. This change in popular usage has provided cover for others.

Day 23: D6 Fantasy

Code:
Name: Bret Stone
Concept: The Sheriff of Shadow River
Setting: Uresia

Agility:         4D      Intellect:       2D
  fighting:      5D      Acumen:          4D
  dodge:         5D        investigation: 5D
  melee:         5D        streetwise:    5D
Coordination:    3D+1      tracking:      5D
  marksmanship:  4D+1    Charisma:        2D+1
Physique:        2D+1    Extranormal:     0D

Advantages: Contacts
Disadvantages: Code of Honor

Background:
Nobody voted for him, nobody appointed him, and nobody challenged him. By now, not even the Duke of Shadows would refute his claim to authority. Bret Stone is the Sheriff of Shadow River. He's a former soldier turned crime investigator. He doesn't involve himself in every crime. Victimless and petty crimes are, by and large, of no concern to him unless the duke or his men request assistance. It's the strange, unexplainable, arcane or just plain brutal crimes that concern him. Left unchecked or uninvestigated, these are the events that will tear a community apart. He'll be damned if his community is torn apart on his watch.

System :: Dungeons & Dragons
Version :: 5e

A bit pressed for time, so I just created a NG Tiefling Cleric with D&D Beyond.
And with the whole OGL rug-pull fuckwittery it might be the last time I
ever touch something D&D-branded, at least for a good long while.
