__ years ago a group of paranormal exterminators saved New York City and possibly all of humanity from certain annihilation. Since their second foray into the business of saving the planet, the original Ghostbusters have taken gotten jobs from all across America and even some long distance calls they refuse to take (those phone long distance charges are just too high to justify). With their newfound brand recognition and fame, the OG-GBs were stretched too thin so they began to take on a couple more college interns to ease the load. This small step into expanding the brand eventually lead to the (arguably) lucrative business venture of franchising!

Whether this is a get rich quick scheme to you, a chance to understand the un-understandable, or you just like the idea of having what's essentially a nuclear reactor strapped to your back; you decided to buy into the Ghostbusters franchise and bring your own brand of Ghostbusting to your own front door.

For my character, I was thinking points would be gained from fights with like a large amount of enemies or after fighting a named. Hitting certain thrilling points in the story, or some player shenanigans lending to a good thrill.

For setting I'm fine with wherever, although I think reusing NY would be too stale. Maybe NJ for proximity and some spooky stuff in the pine barrens. Time-wise I'm good with both, although I'm leaning towards modern cuz I was thinking that maybe my guy likes to stream the busting, and it can have some stupid ghostbusters branded name for it.

@Jerkchicken
That's about what I was thinking for thrills as well. I don't think you guys will be fighting many hordes of ghosts and I'm not married to you getting some brownie points for every named ghost but if things look a little grim or the ghost seems like it really means business then I think I'll throw a point your way. Does that sound kosher?

@Duthguy @Jerkchicken
Alrighty, for time and setting then I'm thinking modern day-ish in Atlantic City. It would be a good fit for the first module and assuming you guys are still jazzed after that I can try to whip something together for the pine barrens or continue some plot hooks from the fist module.

One last question to shoot y'alls way; do you guys want to RP the establishing the franchise (going around to a few locations with a realtor, buying your Ecto-1 equivalent, etc) or do you want just hash that out OOC before hand and jump straight into the meat or it?

Personally, I think doing it in character could be interesting but I could be convinced to skip it based on the majority

Alrighty, in that case I think we’re good to go once character sheets are posted and approved! I’ll edit the intro post later tonight and also a fair warning, I have exams next week so I might be a little slow to begin with but after next week things should pick up a bit.

Name: David "Dave" Grayson
Appearance:

Traits and talents:

  • Brains: 4 Accountancy
  • Muscle: 2 Lifting
  • Moves: 3 Fire Weapon
  • Cool: 3 Bargain

Goal: Money
Personality: While Dave is interested in making money, he isn't willing to cheat or break any laws to do, stretching them and using loopholes is fine in his mind though. This stems from an incident in his past where his father got conned in signing a bad contract over a car lease. Not wanting to be tricked himself Dave decided to learn accounting and ended up picking free online shooters as a cheap way to kill the time. He doesn't have much interest in going to the gym though so he is a bit out of shape
Brownie points: 20

@Duthguy Not great truth be told, been trying to set up retaking a course and doing some new ones, sorry for the radio silence. I'll get this show on the road finally on the 26th, after Christmas.

@Jerkchicken Do you have a name for your character yet? Even if you're not all finished the sheet quite yet a name and a bit of the backstory'll help me whip up an opening post.

Yeah I've not been super active lately, ADHD and video games have made it hard for me to stay really focused on this stuff. Maybe I'll get around to running some stuff again when I feel the urge.

Duude I fucking know right!? I can't find the time to properly sit down and enjoy a game without a tiny voice nagging at me to get posts done.

Blurb: Go-za is another johnny-come-lately that's decided to try his chances as a streamer. More specifically, as one of those virtual streamer types. However, his success has been limited due to the fact that he is not a cartoon girl with a cute voice. Rather, his avatar is totally not a pizza head clone with far more expressiveness. While playing games is fine and all, he has a thrill-seeking core that can't be sated with games. Unsure of how well this ghost-busting gig is gonna pay, he hatched the brilliant idea of streaming his gigs for subsidizing his ventures into spooky places with the pretext that it's good for publicity should it prove entertaining to gain a large enough audience.

Notes: Not the actual name of the person, whose name I have not come up with yet. Go-Za is a contraction of Chicago deep-dish Pizza which he will argue is a real pizza.

@rocketrobie2

It's finally up

@Dark Cloud
It's the opposite for me, where I keep putting it off by a day until way too much time has passed.

Dave would be totally fine with helping Go-za maximize the profit of his streams by taking care of any taxe loopholes in exchange for less money than a professional accountant would ask
