Now that we have six players signed up (or should have shortly) we need to get the PCs sorted. I’d really like to go with the Pregens as these characters to me are The Enemy Within as much as the intricate plot. It is however especially important that you like the character you are playing and are motivated to post so if nothing strikes your fancy here I could be persuaded to slightly alter the characters e.g. Walter Weltshmerz instead of Wanda, make Johan more talkative, you get the idea. Alternatively we could look at the pregens from the Oldenhaller contract or put your faith in the dice gods though I’d rather not do that if possible. For one using the pregens means we have nifty little character pictures to post at the start of your actions so we know at a glance who is doing what, more on that in the posting guide to come. Nothing quite says Enemy Within to me than those buff coloured pages.
Could you all reply to this post with your choice of characters in order of preference and I’ll see if we can make everyone happy. Any conflicts of choice I’ll resolve randomly. Alternatively if you all agree I can dish them all out randomly. Once done I’ll send you all out your individual character sheets and extra background information. Due to the time commitments of some players I’m planning to start with a first post on Friday the 18th so we have plenty of time to get everything sorted.
