Your normal Out of Character thread, where we discuss the weather and place morbid bets on our character's rapidly rising Insanity scores. Standard stuff.
If you'd like, you can hold tight on creating your character sheet threads: I know that I have a template placed there for it, but at the moment I'm trying to collect all of my mechanical notes about your mechanical builds. So you maybe would like to wait and see what problems I noticed about your builds that you'll need to go back and fix anyway.
EDIT: Oh yes, if you have a specific sort of request about the manner in which your character is introduced in the forthcoming IC prologue chapter, by all means run it by me. Some of you may be arriving on an airplane, some will already be on Ark and suffering through school, and at least one of you will possibly be sleeping in a vat as we start.
If you need me to, I can stand in for the OD until you get someone more permanent for the job. I could either role up a whole (or most of) a character sheet, or just wing it. Maybe instead of have an actual Captain/Major/Colonel (Something happened to/prevented the original OD from showing up in time for the first attacks) the base has to make do with a more junior member, or the base Commander can run things himself.
So it seems that I have been given no choice but to watch the US World Cup game now, which I will dutifully do. After I am done with that, I shall carefully review everyone's character sheet one final time and tell you what might need to be fixed. Then we can get started on this... campaign... thing.
In the meantime, feel free to introduce yourselves and polish your character applications in the Game application thread (drop a message to me here or elsewhere if you do so).
If any of you wish to change your Unit designation to something better fitting, now is likely the time to do so. Here's my characteristically overwrought analysis of your Eva construction rolls, attempting to fit your characteristics into a unified 'timeline' of Project Eva construction to help you all out with the decision-making process. These are merely suggestions.
Be sure to watch your individual private threads for my final judgements of your character sheets. Once you've fixed any stuff I find that you need fixing, you are cleared to post a new thread with your character sheet using the Template given.
EDIT: allright, I'm operating on limited sleep tonight. Some of you have completed character notes already, some not. Expect them to be finished tomorrow!
Well, aside from one reply I'm hearing a lot of "no comment" about anyone's preferred status at the campaign start. Which is fine by me, I'll just set you up however I feel is appropriate.
Expect the IC thread sometime tonight! The Operations Director who ends up being chosen in the ongoing selection pool will make their glorious entrance at a moment of suitable drama sometime afterward.
