Your edits are good. Feel free to move Johnny to the characters tab.

As for everyone else who is still wishing to participate in Futility, character sheets are going to be cut off in 3 days. Add me on discord if you would like to join our group.

More pirates to add to the mix. Both Kay and Oleksandr are both solid characters to add to the cast. You guys can move to the character tab.

With that, we're going to close applications and begin work on relations before I can start us off. Because of the size of the group, I'll aim to have us start off in two smaller scenarios which will serve to establish each of our characters in the story, place the cast into the world, and organically introduce the motivations that will drive the first array of subplots. I've not completely worked out the details, but it may be best for us just to start out relatively close together before a rally before we jump into things.

I'll be writing up relations for each PC with either Stella or Delilah and after that I'll start finishing up the introductory posts. Let me know if you all have any questions.

Howland looks pretty good, though I think it'd be helpful if you expanded upon personal and campaign goals. Since those provide the backbone of what will drive us through the various scenarios of the RP, it will be best to give yourself concrete things to work towards, so we don't get stuck in Cyberpunk sandbox mode. This can also help me gear subplots towards your specific character. If you want me to shop ideas with you, let me know on Discord. Once that's done, you're good to move to a hider in the character tab.

For everyone else, try to get extraneous relations done with haste. I just have to put one together for Keah, then its all hands on deck for the first post, which I've already begun.

Sorry for the late reply— Futility is mostly run on Discord at this point and I don't check the threads very often unless we've progressed. At this point in time, we're not that far along and since we lost a few members of the original cast before the RP began, Futility is going to have another round of applications. If you'd like to put in an application, feel free. Add me on discord if you'd like to ask any questions regarding lore or character creation.

I will also throw my hat into the ring regarding joining. Is there a link to the discord that this is being run on anywhere?

@Valor
Amelia is looking good thus far. It'll be interesting to have the bodyguard sort on scene for inevitable SNAFU that occurs when the Reclaim Zone gathers. The sheet created a solid picture of what Amelia's role will be within the group dynamic, though it's hard to understand the direction in which the character will be taken. I think more clearly defined personal and campaign goals could help here. Since a character's drives are what's going to give them an active role in the story and certain tasks to go after as well as helping me better direct the right subplots to them, they are crucial to any character in Futility. Everyone should have overarching goals in life, even if they may not seem immediately obvious.

What may help with that is more fleshed out background details. This is another instance that can help me give your character a more direct role in the story, rather than relying on shots in the dark to create engagement. Right now, I don't know much about Amelia that doesn't revolve around her work, which is certainly important, but the details you've added give a lot of room for intrigue. For example, what sort of acts, jobs, characters, and scenes was Amelia experiencing when working with these 'legal grey area' gangs? What made Amelia's mind change so easily when she met a security recruiter? How did her former colleagues react when she abandoned their cause? These could be great questions to answer to allow for dynamic progression and a variety of inputs on Amelia's overall story.

Otherwise, I like what you've got so far. As you work towards those major points, you're also welcome to start working on your character's relations with other characters. The table template for that is in the OOC post. I write a connection with every character with at least one of my two characters, but beyond that, every player should have at least two connections to help us avoid drawn out mistrust and lack of cooperation. Good work!

Your edits look good. I like the elaboration on the backstory. That will give me a lot more to work with in regards to the recurrence of past motifs for your character. One more thing, would you mind giving an identity to the gang that Amelia ran with? You're welcome to give it as much detail as you'd like, but I can fill in gaps if necessary. We actually had a 'Knights Gang' in Futility 1, ironically enough. If you want, you could have worked with them or create your own faction.

@MagratheanWhale
Everything looks great. Glad to have S'venia back aboard for Futility 2. Can you elaborate specifically on S'venia's goings-on/transition from the Campbell's campaign team back into her neutral role with the Broker? This is going to be important for me with regards to her interactions with Delilah and Overdriver as the old lads come together. There will actually be a number of recurring characters, so S'venia's reactions to the fiasco and where she went from there in comparison to the other crew members will be rather important, I think. If you have questions about missing details about the event, feel free to ask on Discord.

---
I'll be working on relations for the two of you today, to be finished either today or tomorrow. Delilah will definitely have a relation with S'venia, but other than that, I'm up in the air regarding other options and will draft some stuff for you guys to look at.
