Hi. I'm just about to start an online d20modern campaign based on the magazine weird newjersey, and i'd like some help choosing my character portrait. we're starting out at 3rd level, and i'm going to be a fast/charismatic hero, starting occupation dilletante. i'm a 21 year-old student at princeton from greenwich, ct, and it's important to me that my character be cute and trendy. i'm not snotty, just popular and a little naive. my name is portia. please let me know which of these pictures you think suits me best, and if you have any ideas for a rich-sounding last name, i'd appreciate that too. if you have any questions about my character, i'd be happy to answer them. this is my first post to this community, and i am pround of my geekdom. yay!

thanks for your input!

I'm going to say the girl with the read hair, unless you want to be ultra trendy. I'm not to good with names but maybe Roland it can be of Scottish or French decent.

And I hope you don't mind me asking but do you live in the New Jersey area. I myself live about 20 minutes from Princeton.

thanks. i don't mind being ultra-trendy, and yes, i do live in nj, but i live in north jersey. do you read weird nj.

Wow that was fast. ^__^

I've checked out the website. I love stuff like that. I've read up all the stuff about the Jersey Devil. I now have my boyfriend (who is from CA) afraid to ever set foot in New Jersey. I live in PA, but it didn't help me because I live in Bucks County. So after he watched signs he kept asking me if I lived on a farm. >_<

Well, I still like the girl with the red hair but if you want to go ultra then the girl with the blonde and black hair. But I definitely wouldn't go with the girl in the white dress why to snotty looking.

I understand your boyfriend. I'm afraid to set foot in America let alone NJ!
29th-Jun-2003 11:36 am (UTC) - Hah!
You and me both, Australia is a much nicer place to live :D
12th-Mar-2003 10:29 am (UTC) - i like the redhead too
i'm dming this and i just picked princeton college as the school the characters go to out of the blue. but i've never been there. maybe you could give me some pointers about the area and some indication of what the school's like. email me though, don't post here. don't want my players reading up on it. heh!

Ho-ho! I don't believe this. This is the best RPG assignment I've had in months. It reminds me of the hoax "Male gamer wanted to join group of female players" message that hits the newsgroups every now and then. Oh dear.

Go for one of the last two. Why? They're my favourite. The uber-Geek in me says go for the second last since the hair won't get in the way while you're trying to absail down the side of buildings or dodge through closing doors.

Some posh name suggestions: Ackermann, Agelington, Aitken, Alexander, Aston-Smith, Bailey-Duller, Bancroft (my favourite), Barfield-Marks, Bayles, Blakemore, FitzWalter, Flowers, Frogmorton, Galloway, Hague, Hammersley, Harding Jones, Longchamp, Lumsden, Masters, Mayberry, Overton, Parrington, Pemberton, Pilmore-Bedford, Rearney, Richardville, Standinoughte, Stemptford, Strange, Strickland, Teasdale, Templeton, Unsworth, Vaughn or Wescombe.
Do I win?

wow! that helps a lot! as for the last name, i have to clear one of those with another player because he's decided to be my little sister. many good choices though! and the last 2 are my favorites as well, but i tend to learn toward the multi-colored hair.

As a male DM for a group of five female characters, am I a hoax then? They even made a community to chronicle their adventures: heroestales.

And I'll just say it right away, it is possibly the most amusing campaign I have run yet.

(Note, if you do pop by the community, and recognize some elements there, do not reveal anything to the players. They have no idea where things stem from. Luckily, since I would probably be shot for breaking book canon. :) )

Female characters are ten a penny. It's female players that are rare.

If you have five female players whom you GM in real life then you're more likely to be a hoax than you are to be real! But this doesn't mean you're not real.

I did pop by the community. I spy MUSHers!

Ah well, will just have scan and upload a picture or two later, then. Must get back home to Norway first though. Or on second thought, one of the players (Yes, they are indeed MUSHers most of them) suggested using a digital camera and just popping off a shot from that. :)

Until then, you will just have to keep believing whatever you wish. :)

Heh. You can't photgraph MUSHers! It's against the cosmic rules of MUSHing. :)
24th-Mar-2003 11:23 am (UTC)
Ah. To clarify, this is for the moment a true tabletop RPG, where we sit around the same physical table. It'll be moved to a MUSH with d20 tools later on, when I go back to Norway. :)

Oh now really!

3 out of the 5 of us mush, not counting the DM (he mushes too!)

And yes, we are in fact all female players... believe it or not!
