The concept grew on me too. It took some time, but I came around. No, I never have. Kind of wish I had friends IRL who were into that kind of stuff. They all deem it too nerdy...
Not really "often", but once or twice. That's why I'm typically tightlipped about character concepts. It looks like I might be the last to this rodeo however. So I'm not really stressed about it. haha xD

At first, I didn't know whether I liked the concept of fun, but it was actually quite enjoyable. I forget; did you say you've played tabletop games before?
Nice of you to offer, but no thanks. ;P
Does that happen often around these parts? I will admit that I worry about others "stealing" my concept before I've written out a character sheet, which is why I clear the nearest hour and write like crazy to get it done. :x

Fun is where it's at, don't you know? :3
Lol, a nibble if you will? :v
Yeah, I try and do the same. I hate when I think I have a great character only to discover that somebody already beat me to the concept...

I have to say, Jim is my favorite of them all. He doesn't give a care about anything but fun. :3
Nothing wrong with a good bite here and there. :v
I'm always looking up tropes to improve my writing. Crystia is heavily based on the trope of an Agent of Chaos, for example, with a few moments of Jerkass God and Strange Girl. I just need to add a theme song to her character sheet, and she'll be in Nerdvana.

Yes, I love Darths and Droids. :3
Good, it would have gotten ugly...
Hey, have to indulge in a trope every now and then. haha.
December 29th, 2012 11:42 AMLilizuki
Now this station is now the ultimate power in the universe. I suggest we use it! (Unrelated; Have you ever read Darths & Droids?)
I'll take your word for it.
The perverse Dwarf is a fairly common trope, so I wouldn't be disheartened! Plenty of banter to be had regardless.

I'll be sure to cover up that exhaust vent, don't you worry.
I have plenty bite! Thank you very much. *pouts*
Wow, that kind of sounds just like my character...
December 29th, 2012 11:33 AMLilizuki
Of course, Darth Claire. Just make sure to get some plywood.
Unfortunately, foxes don't have much bite for their bark.
Dwarves are funny. :3. There was a Dwarf in Dragon Age called Oghren, and your dwarf sounds like him. He was a flaming-haired stallion of a Dwarf, with a mug of ale in one hand and a perverse death wish in the other.

Hey, who wouldn't want a Death Star? I would love a Death Star personally. Wait...err... You didn't hear that...
It's a skill I'm quite proud of.
Haha, that does sound pretty neat. I could see my character being a heavy gambler. He's probably going to be a drunkard too. Oh boy, my Dwarf is a mess.

Kickstarter isn't as silly as some of the petitions I've heard about on that Senate website. Building a Death Star, anyone? :v
You're wily as a fox. ;P
Well, there's the fun in making other mercenaries suffer! Crystia uses magic to twist fate in her favor, so she can make it happen for whoever pays the most. d:
December 29th, 2012 11:14 AMClaire*
When in doubt, Kickstarter! Are you kidding, I -only- have cameras that record that way. Pssh.
Maybe she could be a compulsive gambler? It would be hilarious. Especially if she was terrible at it. haha. But a good gambler, where's the fun in that. Also, yes...there is a severe shortage of evil smiley faces...
December 29th, 2012 11:10 AMLilizuki
I wish there was an evil face smiley here.
December 29th, 2012 11:09 AMLilizuki
We need to make a Kickstarter to alert the public to this deception. Do you have any cameras which record only in grainy footage, so we can collect evidence?
Nope, you did not. d:
Crystia would probably enjoy it for reasons related to her specific brand of magic. She'd be an excellent gambler.
December 29th, 2012 11:03 AMClaire*
I thought I was the only one! :3
I never stated which way Anna swung.
Haha, true. Although, my character will probably appreciate the bouncing... I had to make a male just for that reason. There were way too many women characters and the lack of balance was going to kill me. haha
December 29th, 2012 10:59 AMLilizuki
D: But Wal-Mart has alien bees in their air conditioning!
I know, but I'd rather not slog through an unfun few months before getting to meet people. :s Besides, there needs to be a chick in the mercs that isn't bouncing her boobies around all the time. d:
