Now I've had 3 players post, including one who really put some real creative effort into his character creation, including a photoshopped calendar for his failed career, and two more people are joining! PBP is fickle!
I'm a female storyteller.
I have gamed under 2 other female storytellers. Both every Entertaining and always a good story line.
It is me but when I make a character and wrote a history that is approved by the current GM I'm I wrong to think they will at some point use some of the crap in game?
I like character driven Games when I have a smart ass punk of a kid running around tell elders to piss off I fully expect his to get throttled if not dead.
This was was easier than I thought. In terms of distinctive features, those could be added on a case-to-case basis (like heat resistance for dwarves).

So was in a gaming store on my vacation, and came across HERO. I have heard of it from people on this site, but didn't know much about it.
Scanning it, it seemed pretty neat, very flexible, complex, but not overtly.
What really rang with me was its compatibility possibilities with a Final Fantasy tabletop game.
I LOVE final fantasy, and think the world's/stories are just so well done. But translating it to the table is difficult.
