- Here's my rough outline for my character. I'm not completely happy, suggestions welcome.Jason FrixJason has spent quite a bit of time on the SWAT team, and so is considered a
valued resource. However, he has recently been under scrutiny for his erratic
behavior. It's understandable, of course. You can't expect a man to be just fine
and dandy three months after his wife and daughter are gunned down in a gang
firefight. But after a few weeks, Jason was back on the job, so everyone thought
he was okay. However, something seems to have broken inside. Jason is a man on
the edge of sanity. He treads the line between morality and animal brutality like a
drunk walks the white line on the side of the road. So far, no innocents have been
hurt, and this is the only thing that keeps Jason on the force.Savvy: 12 "Experienced"
Sense: 8 "Reckless"
Guts: 15 "Tough-as-nails"
Meat: 12 "Lifts Weights every once in a while"
Responsiblity: 3 "They will pay"
Instinct: 17 "Vengeful"

As for the character itself, I like the looks of it, except the only
issue is I want all the characters in this game to have a minimum
Responsibility of 5. And you are aware, right, that you can lose
control of the character when you blow a Lapse check, right? I mean,
if that's what you want -- and I suspect it is -- that's cool, but I
figured fair warning is in order.

channel and some time to make a character, it's all good.
People have been posting characters here. Here's the ruleset:
Don't let the grim art scare you off. Standard 50 points, minimum of
10 in Guts and 5 in Responsibility.
- Okay, I should be on IRC tonight for Unsung... If I'm idle, I'm probably
eating dinner, and will be back. If people don't want to play this
Thursday, let me know, I can push it off to next Thursday. Sorry for the
short notice, it's been a busy week.
