Quote from: Paka<snip>This Tuesday I will be meeting with a group of 6, 3 guys and 3 gals to make our swashbuckling pirate cell for Conspiracy of Shadows. This is my transcript from memory in an attempt to get a character out of her, always a similiar stubborn process with her insisting that she has no ideas until she does.JA - I don't have any ideas.Me - You said the same thing when we made up your CatPC and you had plenty of good ideas.JA - No, I don't. Me - You don't have to play.JA - I LIKE playing.Me - ...JA - I just don't have any ideas. There's nothing inmy head.Me - That's okay. Jeff hasn't e-mailed me a conceptyet. Every gamer makes up their character in adifferent way. S'okay.JA - But I don't have any ideas.Me - Yes, you do. Youa re just too shy to share them.What about a character from a book? Swordspoint, thatis a dark, swashbuckling book that you dig.<snip>
