I'll get a post up for Roggi ASAP. I figure we can keep this day going for a little bit, given Nick's supposed to be off gallivanting with Riley.

So despite the fact Willow was mostly intended as just a temporary stand-in while Nick and Riley are off unraveling murder mysteries, I'm enjoying writing her far more than I ever anticipated and have started having a bit of a hankering for a 1x1. Don't suppose anyone fancies it?

And now for something different.

Maximus Augustus Aelianus/Max August - Wizard, arcane consultant and snappy dresser

Age: Old enough to remember when Caesar wasn't a salad.

Species: Human. Wizard. Absolute legend.

Appearance: This dapper chap.

Personality: They say a little self-confidence will take you a long way. If that's the case, then Max could use his to pay for a return trip around the world. Twice. Having been a practicing wizard since beards and robes were en vogue, he's a veritable font of knowledge when it comes to the arcane - he's also more than a little self-impressed, to the point where he can become a little unpleasant. Despite his external demeanour he's not an entirely awful guy; he's just forgotten what it's like to be short-lived and lacking in power.

Background: Maximus Augustus Aelianus has been treading the world since a time when arcane rituals were just something you did of a Sunday afternoon. He's lived through wars, the rise and collapse of empires, religious persecution, witch hunts, economic collapse and numerous 'intellectual enlightenments' which turned out to be 50% student drinking and 50% complaining about the ruling class without doing anything. His career started off in old Europe and, with growing persecution against the magical, moved to America when the Colonies were still a thing. Since then he's made a name for himself as a go-to source for magical development, contributing to the design and construction of numerous non-mundane projects such as the Grey Market, the non-mundane underground and the Statue of Liberty, which he insists could "never have been built by Gauls." These days he spends his time rubbing elbows with high society on both sides of the magical divide, lounging around his Manhattan penthouse or antagonising Nick Reyes for personal reasons.

... And Nick was jealous of the good looking elf.

Andrew “Mouse” McGregor – novice shapechanger (shapeshifting apprentice mage want to be..)

Age: 20

Species: Human most of the time, cat some of the time.

Appearance: Andrew is tall and thin, athletic looking young man. He has brown hair and blue eyes, and a trace of fuzz for a mustache. His skin is pale and completion clean. His clothing is immaculate, dressed in pressed jeans and a white oxford button down shirt, blue if he is living on the wild side. He has a handkerchief in shirt pocket and another in his pants pocket if the first one gets dirty. He wears black running shoes, because he says they are more comfortable.

In his cat form:Image

Personality: They say that curiosity killed the cat. That is Andrew. He wants to know and learn more about the non-mundane side of the world. He has a tendency to disregard those in authority and do his own thing. Andrew picked up the nickname “mouse” when he was in first grade. He was quiet and sneaky. Not maliciously so, just when he got board, which was most of the time. He would be out of the room, out on the playground, or in the library. His teacher, would clip a bell on him so she could hear when he was moving around. Andrew likes to be noticed.

Background: Andrew grew up in a lower middle class home. When Andrew was hitting puberty, his magic started to develop. It was when he was at his Grandfather’s house, after his grand father had died, that he found an old book with some strange writing. He took it home. He tried to figure out what the writing said. After a few weeks of researching, he read the first page. He changed into a cat.

Now changing into a cat is a little disturbing. Think about going from walking on two feet to four, having a tail and ears that swivel, being able to see differently, and having to deal with dogs. It took him two days to figure out how to change back, he was reported as a run away during that event. Changing back to human without clothing in the middle of a park, is not a good thing.

Now being a cat has been an interesting thing for Andrew. Crash a teenage girl’s slumber party, no problem. Want something, cat burglar. Yes, Andrew has not always used his power for good, maybe for fun though.

Now he is trying to figure things out.

We'll have to ask Forge how fitting it is, but I had a quick 'Dive Bar' search on Spotify so I had some background noise for my next post and thought I would share - Dive Bar Essentials .

That playlist's absolutely amazing. I endorse that being the sound of Nick's jukebox.

Name: Adara Iliopoulos

Age: 28

Appearance: she is here Dark eyes, brown hair, and probably human. She stands at about 5 feet and 6 inches.

Personality: Quick to laugh and quick to chat. She talks a lot, but she doesn't say much. Constantly seems a little on edge, to the observant bystander.

Hey guys. Just a quick prompt to say that you might wanna slow things down a bit. As I've mentioned, there are a fair few people participating at the moment, and while I know that slowing down is tough when you're on a roll, it's important not to charge too far ahead so that everyone can keep up.

Depends. Are you asking to play as Pete, or to use that image for your current character?

You guys could always take it to PMs to do some back and forth between your characters and then post it as one, bigger lump less often.

I was asking to play as him. The image was to give people a visual of what he looks like.

I'd prefer original characters only, buddy. Sorry. Just to avoid bringing existing lore into the tavern.

Just take inspiration from him; make a character with bits of his personality and mannerisms you find funny.

Seal, if the GM says no non-original characters, I'm afraid it won't matter where you post your request. In this thread, the decisions are down to Forge.

Alright then. Would it be to similar if I made my own wacky birdman character based off that one? :)
