Alright, so.
How much does your character get paid?
Marshall doesn't get paid anything, since she's an assistant. Most of what she owns comes from things she's stolen from derelicts or during shifts.

Orange Juice Simpson is the result of a genetic experiment where an assistant fucked an orange. He is half man half orange and he isn't actually a blackman his skin is very dark orange. His nipples secrete orange juice and he is a force for righteousness and good on the station FACT: Orange Juice Simpson is more robust then Oldman Robustin and has beaten him in 1v1 before FACT: Orange Juice Simspon is the friendliest man on the station, friendlier even then Reed Glover FACT: Orange Juice Simpson has never broken the law.

Wise Guy is a clown he's a violent escaped maniac who wants to ERP with pretty lesbians on the station.

imblyings wrote:In other news, the average age of a female character seems to be around 25 years of age, with the most common age at 38% being 17 years of age. Meanwhile, the average age of a male character seems to be around 35 years of age and around 75% of character ages lie between 17 years of age to 41 years of age. Perhaps as expected, male characters outnumber female characters by a bit more than three times.

I tried making another female character after Laura, because by God if you remember Laura you know why she's gone, and it just wasn't working.
I don't know why, but I just can't think of any interesting female characters. I don't want to just have a cutesy generic bright haired uggu princess who can "hang with the boys" because she's rough and tough, but when I try and brainstorm nothing comes to me.
Bringing Finster into SS13 after ditching Laura was one of my better choices.
General Discussion wrote:Rich talk that I missed while running a summer camp

Is a "rags to riches" story interesting to you people, or does the character have to be constantly poor?
Finster was poor and lived in a Church in exchange for assisting there, but then his boxing career took off and 70 years later he's atop a throne of wealth he had to fight for.
He's tried as hard as he can to forget about being poor, going so far as to build his first factory planet headquarters on top of a freshly burned down Church.
Maybe he'd be more interesting if he was bitter, miserable, and alone, I don't know.
rosello wrote:Alright, so.

Finster works in exchange for a very reduced pay, which he insisted on.
Though he makes money selling blueprints, hand teleporters, Centcom documents and secrets, that sort of thing. He doesn't need the money, business meetings just bore him.

You'd think that getting into space would be extremely expensive and a hard lifestyle to live if you're poor.
Like, the poor would be stuck on planets, not space stations. Though I guess it could be hard to find a planet and settle if you were born in space.

Ural gets a somewhat below average salary, not starving in a box eating space rats levels, but generally just enough to live off of. He can pay his spess bills and shit most of the time (Though living in a rather small apartment probably helps quite a bit in that regard) but extraneous expenses is where finances start to get troublesome.

How'd your character wind up in space, and later Space Station 13?

August was stuck on a boring, small planet until his boxing career took off. When he was the lightweight champion of his home world, he was carted across the sector to fight the best of the best. This was cross species light weight boxing, non of that humans only crap they have nowadays.
After he was champion of the sector, he took his money and layed down plans for Finster Corp. and the like. Remodeled his home planet in his image, and he hasn't really left space since.
Obviously he approached Nanotransen for corporate espionage reasons.

Ashlyn was purchased along with the rest of the experiments aboard the genetics cloning experiment facility she was raised in, so they decided since her course of experimentation with cloning was over that they may as well ship her off to SS13

dora was a performer on the planet she grew up on, one day representatives from NT came down to look for job opportunities and she decided to go to work, originally continuing her job as an entertainer, but on the job experience has allowed her to do other jobs as well.
ryker had devoted his life as a doctor to saving people, and he decided that a giant metal death trap in space could use a bit of saving, so he took up a job there.

Marshall decided that any space station would be better living than a shitty backwater space port, so she applied as a medical doctor. And then she was Mia Karp for a while and then she was an assistant. Now she's a medical doctor again.

Chrysanthemum Thorne was a medical doctor working at Centcomm and was sent to Space Station 13 after a scandal involving an executive, and his wife. Another, higher ranked executive. Mistakes were made. The idea was "Send her to that horrible station no one talks to so this doesn't get out. Maybe she'll die too. Also, we're getting a divorce."

I love the b movie quality acting in CnC cutscenes so much.

Cabal had an interesting story and I'm glad the cnc writers had a huge fucking boner for him and gave him his own story arch in TS.
