clover4: rpol.net Orpheus Game
Okay, the account is created! It's under:
I actually snagged Orpheus as the name, so no confusion as to what's what. The GM's name is: Josephine Wolff. My account name on rpol.net is: Abydos641
I'll see about flipping through my books and setting up some preliminary posts tonight/tomorrow. In the meantime, everyone go through your books and pick out what you'd like to play. All spirits are welcome except Organ Grinders, cause they require a bit more involvement in their creation. However, if you would like to play a grinder drop me a line, and if you have a good backstory and strong case for it, then hell, all's a go.
I'm really looking for interesting characters. They don't have to be 100 percent unusual never before seen, but just something you'd really enjoy playing. That alone is enough.
You can design knowing full well that Orpheus exists, and working for them (either many years, recently recruited, etc.) or you can create a character that knows nothing of Orpheus, and is scared as hell cause weird shit keeps happening. All ages are okay (I happen to like diversity, so a 60+ character or an 8 year old is fine by me) and use the stains, dementations, and so forth to full effect.
We are only as bright as the shadow we cast.
It might take a week to get this game off the ground, so take the time to really think about your character. I want this to be fun, involved, and terrifying.

Got it. Just registered with rpol.net Do you have an e-mail addy I could toss the character stats to?
As for the characters themselves, I've got 3 premade. Here's a brief explanation of each one. Pick one that would fit in well with the game and/or other player's characters.
1) Vox, 20-something year old prositute. Voz has multiple near-death experiences from hypothermia, drug overdoses, multiple stab wounds, and (on one occasion) being beaten ragged by the John she was with. Eventually spent the night with an Orpheus agent that slipped her something called pigment. She told the agent about all the weird shit she saw under the influence, and he offered her a job that was way better than prostitution.
Voz's Nature is Survivor, Demeanor is Rebel. Currently Orpheus has her employed as a Sleeper and classified as Banshee. If she ever dies, she'll become a Hue.
2) Dante was a good kid until the car accident that nearly killed him adn sent his girlfriend through the windshield. After that, he dropped out of college and started taking a lot of drugs. One thing led to another, and after he was introduced to pigment, he was hooked. His first near-death expereince was the initial car accident that made his life start to spiral downwards, and other near-death experiences include being shot several times and a few drug overdoses. After being released from rehap one night, Dante shot up more pigment than he'd even taken before in life life (it had been a while since he'd been high) and died, becoming a Hue.
Dante's Nature and Demeanor are both Addict, and his self-hatred causes him to lash out at the living. Orpheus agents found him hanging around his old neighborhood and immediately classified him as a Poltergeist. After making contact with Dante, Orpheus hired the Hue to keep an eye on the local pigment scene. In addition to his abilities as a Poltergeist, Orpheus has noted some horrifying but useful Stains.
3) Chip Davis always loved cars and loved the races. At a young age, he had the privelage to work on a Nascar crew, doing quick fix-up jobs on cars during their pit stops. He worked on the team for many years, and when the driver retired, Chip was nominated to take his place. Although he had several near-fatal collisons, spinouts, and fires, he always managed to have a [relatively] quick hospital stay and never hesitated to climb back into the driver's seat. Until one race in October of 2003, that is. His fuel tank caught fire and the car exploded, Chip still strapped inside. Orpheus agents discovered Chip when Nascar gave them a call that some strange going-ons were happening, like the place was haunted. Orpheus agents discovered Chip in one of teh garages, tinkering with the cars at all hours of the night. Since Chip was actually FIXING the cars (and not sabotaging them) he was classified as a friendly spirit and offered a job.
Chip Davis has a Thrill-Seeker Nature under a Celebrant Demeanor. He is a Spirit that, given his powers, classified him as a Haunter.

And so you know, I have a soft spot for Ho's and the name Dante:)
But mostly Ho's.
