    Glad you're playing, and I also appreciate your flexibility. Let's see who else is interested in playing, and which type of heroine they want to play. I think once we have 3 or 4 players, we can begin the game.

    To those considering playing, all 13 parts of the game are written, and there are multiple paths. The "boss fights" should get pretty crazy. The game is rules-light and story-heavy. There's no leveling up; you just get stuff: monster parts, divine gifts, and a sidekick if you want one.

    Olympian
    Athena favors the Amazon, though she'd favor her a little more if the foolish mortal wouldn't test the limits of her tolerance to booze

    Yay Akantha! An Amazon would have been my second choice!

    Nice! So only live for a couple hours, and I've got 3 players already.

    Akantha the Amazon, ? the Nymph, and ? the ?. I guess now's as good a time as any to open a thread where you can tell the back story of your character. No need for stats, since you don't get to choose that.

    I'm torn between an Amazon and a Huntress. Might have to roll a d2 to choose. XD

    Please pick one so that I can change my character if needed. I don't think the game will be fun with duplicate classes running around.

    Well, once your mind is made up, please post a backstory to the The Players! thread.

    While there's no rule on duplicate heroines, there's a benefit to being able to do what others can't.
    @Ireth, go ahead and make your choice. Reaver has an alternate in mind to avoid duplicates if you take the Amazon. If you take the Huntress, I expect Akantha stays.

    @Reaver, Greek name! Nice touch!

    I'm on the fence. My last character had a cool mustache. I don't know if I can play now without a mustache.

    Could she have some dwarven blood? I believe dwarf females can grow facial hair...

    When I was in grad school, one of the RA's had facial hair. She was actually quite pretty, but you couldn't help but notice the little blonde hairs on her cheeks.

    She was at least 5'10", so I doubt she had dwarven blood.

    While I'm still poking at ideas, I have a question. Would a transgender character be allowed? I was thinking of possibly an MtF Huntress (not Ariel, for those wondering). Or I could do one of two cis-female Amazons or a cis-fem Huntress. Depends on what LS rules. (Also had an idea for an FtM Nymph, but figured since he identifies as male, he doesn't count as a Huntress for game purposes despite being physically feminine. And we already have a Nymph, so.)

    *flails* This is always the hardest part of these things. I want to play ALL THE CHARACTERS.

    The heroine should be physically female. Basically, I'm taking the piggish way women were treated in myths and using that. The amazons were just there for demigods to kill and feel big--in the myths, I mean. In this game, they're awesome.

    You can have a physically male sidekick who identifies as female. I recommend not starting the game with a sidekick, but anyone can have one: man, woman, animal, Kentauride/centaur...

    Sidekicks level from "bumbling" to "legendary."

    Makes sense! I find it funny that the idea I veto'd would have been more fitting than the other trans character, but that's life. XD Oh well. I shall keep poking at the things.

    Yeah, technically your FtM nymph works. Plus it's interesting that a member of an all-female race would identify as male. I'm not opposed to the idea of a tg character. It just makes parts of the story clumsy if you have a physically-male heroine in the mix. The world still sees this character as male. If she tries to bathe with the nymphs, Artemis might shoot her. (Not that I'm going to play Olympians like that... but she really did kill a Peeping Tom in one of the myths.)

    *nod* Oh, she definitely would stay away from Nymphs. I would think the gods might understand about how a person views themselves compared to how the rest of the world does... but then, the Greek gods aren't always known for being nice or understanding.
