Um, Wolven and Razgriz... I'm still here...
Would you mind bothering me to post over Skype on something before you run off ahead of me? I'm a bit writer's blocked in this one right now and it's hard when every time I'm halfway through formulating a response you guys make another two posts...

Ok! lemme look at this...

You might want to format this a little better, add some bold and underlined text to make it easier to read. Also, I think there might be a couple of typos in there. Other than that, the numbers add up to 42, so that works, and the character itself seems sound.

Alright then, just look into those changes, and you should be fine to post later tonight...

Your characters and story are good, but you lack delivery. You think you could work on making your in-character posts more coherent before you join a third neighborhood?

I don't want to give up on it yet. However, considering at this point no one has been able to contact Simple Things for weeks, he hasn't been on the forums in over a month, and he hasn't posted anything in almost 4 months, I'd vote for giving up on him and having Raccoon do something to get us unstuck.

right. Raccoon, as GM it's your job to figure out a way to get us unstuck at this point. he's holding up 5 players (6 if you count The Game but I have no idea if she'll start posting again after being unstuck) controlling 7 characters (8 counting the Game's character, 10 if you count that you were waiting on him before advancing Samuel and Taku) and he has been for months, even when he was still visiting the forums. BPS already wrote his character into inaction, it's time you do the same.

Hey I'm a new reader for the comic and I was a bit interested in this whole RP'ing thing.
I wanted to know if there are any open spots available to join Brookshire and if so, do I put a link to
My character sheet or do I just post it here :?:

(By the way I'm writing this on my IPad so It's rather difficult to type... muffins and cookies autocorrect...)

Ok, I'm REALLY sorry that I didn't get around to it sooner, I've been having a busy week that's left me exhausted.

Your character sheet is awesome and you should feel good. Go ahead and post an introduction whenever you're ready.

I do have one thing that you didn't mention about him that you should flesh out ASAP: he's uneducated, but HOW uneducated? Can he read? Can he read well? Has he read any science. history, or philosophy? What about Fiction? How's his math? Does he speak English well, or is it fragmented?
You should figure that out before he starts talking, so you have a better idea of what seemingly basic knowledge this character might not have.

Example: Rikki doesn't know alot of math, science, history, or poilitics, because he just learned how to read and doesn't have an interest. He is VERY well versed in Local Ecology, Laws, and his native Lore, however.

-Name-
Eisner Nguyen

-Character Type-
Main

-Species-
Cat (Black and White Domestic Short Hair)

-Age-
3 Human years (10.5 pet years)

-Neighborhood-
Brookshire Meadows

-Appearance-
Eisner is smaller than most cats, still being a kitten. His fur on his back and upper half of his head is black, save for a few small patches, and the fur on his belly, paws, and lower half of his head is white. His eyes are a coppery color, almost yellow. His tail is longer than most cats, and his ears seem a bit big for the rest of his head. Overall, though, he seems well proportioned. He's thin and lanky, and seems more quick than strong.

-Personality-
Eisner is an explorer. He takes the idiom "curiosity killed the cat" to a whole new level, often times getting into trouble or danger amidst is adventures. All in all, he doesn't concern himself with the opinions of others, and will go so far as to directly disregard the instructions and advice of others if he feels there's no merit to it. At first glance, Eisner is cute and friendly, and seems like the kind of cat anyone would want to be friends with. However, while he is open and willing to make friends, he can be manipulative and insensitive to those around him, sometimes without realizing it. That being said, he's never actively looking to harm anyone, and never does anything for explicitly malicious reasons. To Eisner, life is one big game, and others can either join him in the fun or get out of his way.

-Background-
Eisner moved to Brookshire Meadows with his owner, Derek Nguyen, after Derek decided to move to the town for its serenity. Derek works as a freelance writer, but currently has a job writing the tie-in "Pridelands" comic book series that goes along with the movies. They live in a small house in the residential district of town.

Derek adopted Eisner as a kitten.

-SPECIAL-
Strength- 4

Perception- 5

Endurance- 5

Charisma- 9

Intelligence- 6

Agility- 7

Luck- 6

Hi RockStarRaccon,

I'd like to be a full member and resident of Brookshire Meadows. I'm new to RPing, and I've been reading Housepets! for about a year now.
Here's a link to my character sheet: https://www.housepetscomic.com/forums/v ... 54#p419754

Thanks a lot :)

This is a pretty good sheet, but there are a couple of storyline problems I want to point out with it:
1) Edge City is a several-hour drive from Brookshire, as it's in northern California, across the desert. Yorkshire might be a better one, as there are several characters who have jobs/college there.
2) He was Declawed? That's a bit harsh for a talking animal to have that sort of thing happen to them, and would probably be illegal in several states. Are you sure you want his dad to have done that to him?


Also, funny story about Australia, since you're from there: I was on ED back when the Australian government was trying to extradite Weev from the US to imprison him for violating Australian censorship-laws. I might not be too safe taking vacations there either... lol

I've been thinking of changing over to Richmond Acres, and with the Edge City thing I was trying to emphasize the sheer distance between Clyde and his dad.
And I didn't know about the legal implications of de-clawing, I just thought that since this was a domestic fox, it would be better to nerf his abilities as opposed to a wild fox. But if it's cruel, I'll take that out. Thanks for telling me, I didn't know.

So yeah. Thanks again.

Why Richmond Acres? So far, it feels like you'd do pretty well here, actually. There've been a couple of domestic foxes here in the past, but those players left a while ago. There's also a non-domestic one named Samuel right now.

As long as the stats are 42 and he doesn't have some weird superpower, like flight, without a good drawback, I don't see any need to nerf him. Meanwhile, Declawing is a pretty extreme process which would probably be very traumatic for the animal-person, even if they didn't remember it: think about what it would be like if I removed the ends of your fingers to get rid of your nails.

The stats add up to 42, he's pretty normal for an anthropomorphic fox-pet (no powers).

OUCH. I think I should have researched before I said anything :( that's HORRIFYING.

-SPECIAL-
Nerd time! S.P.E.C.I.A.L is a simple system I'd like people to use to define their characters abilities: How strong they are, how fast they are etc. Don't panic, it's very simple, the numbers are only here as 'guidelines' of sorts, we will never actually use REAL rules. All you need to do is take 42 points, and spread them between the seven attributes bellow. You must put at least 2 points in each one, and the most you can put in one is 10, with 5 being 'average'. You need not spend all 42 points if you don't want to, but most of the RP’ers would recommend spending all the points, unless there’s a backstory trait behind it.
You forgot to delete this from the sheet when you copied it. Your stats are 42 though, so you're fine otherwise.

Good character overall. Add a few sentences about his owner, backstory, and where he lives and you should be good...
