@Melkor I don't think Aerandir is being hostile just because he disagrees (and provides unwanted criticism). The game will be better with you than without you so I hope you guys can talk it out and clear up any misunderstandings.
Cool thread. Are you looking for a straightforwardly good and heroic cast, or do you have room in the game for characters of dubious motivations and questionable methods? For example will you accept assassins, warlords, Machiavellian schemers, that kind of thing?
@rocketrobie2 I could run this RP with a small cast of, say, four dedicated people. A combination of that many characters (two initiates/rookies and two upperclassmen, for example) would be enough to explore multiple personality dynamics within the group and make it feel alive despite being mostly populated with NPC's.
If @Dead Cruiser is in, and I'm willing to play a young, dumb DMPC, then we have enough to start, cuz a personal friend is already interested as well. But finding a fifth person would be ideal so I don't have to resort to a DMPC.
@Dead Cruiser Sure is. Not as necessary as the Vice story or the Gaijin Rider articles for basic research, IMO, but it sets a tone, especially for those who want to see a slice of the scene's origins in the early 70s.
