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.

This is the character I'd like to play - Danny Wilkes, Marrow Spirit

Danny Wilkes was a decent guy, a student at university studying vetinary science and politics, if a little intense for most people. Especially when it came to his causes. Danny was a very passionate about his causes, flitting back and forth between things such as human rights marches, petitions to stop the bulldozing of woodlands so the city can put in yet another big box store, and chaining himself to the front door of a cosmetics company in protest of animal testing. On the side, he also hacked into corrupt company databases to mess with files, broke into testing facilities to liberate animals, and even managed to drop a paint bomb on the lead designer of a clothing label known to use real fur.

He never really had many NDE's to speak of - a couple of beatings by police or other lock-up inmates and the like - but that didn't matter, because a year ago, Danny was killed. Not by angry CEO's who had had enough of his meddling, but by his compatriots in a protest march about logging. When the police turned on the water cannons and the tear grenades, the mob scattered, knocking Danny over and trampling him in the rush to get away. He existed as what Orpheus would class as a drone, acting out his tragic march with no end in sight, and manifesting as a stray ghostly animal of some description. After Orpheus elevated him to full spiritual consciousness, instead of moving on, Danny decided he could still do good, especially now that he didn't have the limitations of either a police record or a body to hamper his efforts, and now works with Orpheus on their cases. The only thing he doesn't like about the company is that, because they don't know exactly what he is, they are subjecting him to the same sorts of tests cosmetic companies did on animals. If it keeps up, Danny doesn't know what he'll have to do.

Wonderful! Send me a message on rpol.net, and I'll add you to the group. I'll leave it to you to work out your stains and abilities. Send me an e-mail with your final character bio (including the ghostly bits). Also, something I like to know, family dead or alive? How many, ex whatever floating about?

Little plot bits that can make for a more in depth/individual character line.
