NPC Rollout
Hi, all! I've been doing for a while small fiction segments that introduce a character in an open way. These are not finished fictions pieces, but are more of an open-end narrative that gives a glimpse on the beginning of an adventure. I am currently working in night shift, so with all the free time in my hands I thought I could start sharing these with the community. I also added some more info so these became useful as adventure seeds or campaign ideas. So I'm thinking about rolling these NPCs introductions which would include one of these short stories, his character sheet (thanks to the awesome Tony Lee spreadsheet) and a small intro to the character. To avoid making extra long posts I'll be hosting the stories and char sheets on my google docs account, so be warned that I might mess the links up. Also keep in mind that English is not my primary language and that these haven't been edited at all, so please point out any mistakes you find in the text. Regarding this, if you are willing to give me a hand with editing future ones, please send a PM message. Hope you enjoy them. :)

Re: NPC Rollout
John Lee Jean When he was just a kid, his father left Earth to work in a mining Moon station. He always felt that his father had betrayed his mother and escaped on a scum barge when he was only a teenager. He never felt comfortable with the people that he met there, but it gave him the chance to teach himself the skills he needed as a scientist. He made some argonaut contacts and started making a name for himself in the realm of psychiatry and dream investigation. John Lee is reserved, but polite with the people he meets. He always seems to sport a nervous smile and is usually fidgety. His eyes tend to wander around a lot, and he is usually unable to notice things happening around him. However, when he is concentrating on any task his focus is admirable. [url=https://docs.google.com/document/pub?id=1ttrmWCV1pgEqoQ8vPBVXjlXQ51rACZh... An unexpected visit[/url] (1021 words) [url=https://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=0Ajm1_gWNcm2WdHNIaTBjYjJFQVhmcTA... Lee Jean[/url] Notes and inspiration: Inception much? I actually wanted to explore the idea of dream recording for a while, and I also wanted to write about an argonaut, as I can't seem to use those much on my games. I also hope that the links work, as this is the first time I'm sharing spreadsheets in google docs.

Re: NPC Rollout
New one: Iago Deehvra Iago was raised in the safe environment of a Planetary Consortium family. He was just a kid during the Fall, and remembers only small fragments of it. Four years ago, when he was just 15, he escaped from his parents home, convinced that he would find comfort and commodity in a freer environment, where he could develop as a person. He joined a passing scum barge called "Cradle of Freedom" and attempted to join in into the scum lifestyle. Iago is impulsive and usually egoistic. After a few years living in the scum barge and doing nothing but play videogames, he got into trouble by stealing from the wrong people. These people are now holding his body as ransom. He escaped by spending most of this money on a egocast to Mars and a small private server where he can act as an infomorph. He is now attempting to find a job or at least get back to his feet, so he can save enough for a new morph. His lack of social skills makes this rather difficult.

Unexpected call[/url] (933 words, mild offensive language) [url=https://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=0Ajm1_gWNcm2WdGVfcnhrN1Z6OTVRNEJ... Deehvra[/url] Notes and inspiration: I remember watching an interview with a kid that made money by farming/gold selling in all sort of mmorpgs, and I was kind of thinking of him while writing. I also wanted to write something more light-hearted than usual, and with more dialogue, so I was simply enjoying myself while writing and thinking of him. I actually quite enjoyed writing him.
