New General SOTF Discussion Thread
I could always talk to Maka about getting the icons again, but like you said, it privileges some characters too much.

(Also I think that was Clemence, not Cassandra.)

ROAD TRIP!
It's starting to look while we'll need more than one vehicle at any rate, so he could definitely be behind the wheel of one of 'em.

Classes Charcter Building
I'm not sure I understand. The classes you mention would probably be mandatory anyhow.

ROAD TRIP!
Original post updated. On top of this stuff, if anyone feels like they have something to add re: destinations, stops on the way, stuff we should do or keep in mind in the thread(s), feel free to speak up.

Paintball team
I still really doubt Cochise would have an official paintball team, but a club or just a group of students who get together and play paintball on their off time would probably work. I'll have to see if any of my concepts fit in with the idea.

Tardy for the Party
I think you got a bit mixed up. Rod is the wrestling star who broke up with Ivy and who I suggested dated Rhiannon for a bit, Curtis is the one who sells drugs (and is kinda hush-hush about it; it doesn't do to just walk up to people and go "hi, I'm a drug dealer," now does it? :P I mean, he's open enough about it to get customers but he's not exactly putting his face on billboards). Brian is the one who is probably not even going to be in v6, but I'll take stuff from his concept and make a new character from the framework so as not to screw the people I've talked to about him. Just so you have a bit on Kaylee while I write her up, I'm going to PM you a link to a chatlog I've sent a few people because it covers a few initial bases.

V6 Siblings
I might or might not do a Luz, I'll have to see where ideas fit in. But on the note of organised crimey stuff, I had an idea of my own for family (non-Luz) stuff - could work it into people's plans, have it as its own thing, we can see what works where and how. Thought to mention it in here in case anyone was interested.

Suddenly, a Relationship Thread
I'm going to send you a quick PM to see what you think if you'd like to chew on some concept stuff, since I was about to anyway. After that I'll either post here again or you can edit your post.

ROAD TRIP!
So far we're good if somebody has an RV, I've seen around that those tend to have a capacity limited by number of seatbelts - 8 seems a good figure - but there's still absolutely no problem with more people joining in or handlers putting multiple characters on the trip.

Let's get the relationship train going.
Another update: Brian is being saved for v7. I will probably take some stuff from the framework I set up for him and make a new concept so anything we ironed out can still work to some extent.

ROAD TRIP!
Multiple characters per handler should be okay - in part that'll depend on how exactly we're doing the trip though.

ROAD TRIP!
Original post edited with list of trippers so far. Don't worry if the list gets long, nothing says there can't be multiple vehicles going on the trip.

In his spare time, Asher practices Judo, but isn't very good at the martial art due to his reluctance to hit an opponent and his focus on breaking holds, dodging hits, and throws.


This wouldn't really be a problem for him since Judo isn't a striking art. That said, Rod Kanuho might get on with him pretty well, even if they're not super close, especially if Asher does any training at KCC which would be a good place to know him from. He might've made an attempt to recruit Asher for the wrestling team, but wouldn't've been particularly fussed if the answer was no; I could see some mutual respect going on there. He could or could not work at the warehouse, but I'd have to think about it.

ROAD TRIP!
"Get in, we're driving until we hit ocean."

Kingman is located pretty close to some nice destinations in the Southwest and California, so once kids are able to drive around trips up to Phoenix, Flagstaff, etc. probably happen a lot. That, and the inherent adventurousness to the idea of just getting in the car and driving off wherever, made me think - why not have a big ol' road trip as an event in pregame? Could be during the spring break, or built up to and carried out later in pregame over the course of a weekend or something. Destinations, how the thread or threads would be carried out, etc. are all things we can hammer out as things go but initial thoughts on the "where" of it all is a route like this 'un, go up to Las Vegas for a little then head on down to LA and stay there for a couple days or whatnot. Obviously methods, specific destinations, etc. will depend on how many people go and everything - if enough people sign on it might be more of a convoy than one car or RV - but it's just an initial thought. Still, road trip! Should be a really interesting opportunity for shenanigans and character-building in the Southwest, and everyone's invited to hop aboard, so who might be interested? We might want to figure out specifics as to roles, too, like if some characters would prefer to do the driving, who's taking care of food or the maps, who carries toll and gas money, stuff like that.

[Help!] I Forget Who I Have Relations With (´・ω・`)
Waiting to hear your thoughts on my people, though I did do a better writeup of Roderick Kanuho, and you can see a new concept I wrote up here.

Drugs, Drugs, Drugs
Might as well just post it as a reply then. Here's what I have so far with my first thoughts on Curtis Weldon, the rival dealer:

Quote:
 
Curtis Weldon (working name for now): So far the only concept of mine who's a white dude (unless I suddenly decide he's actually a dudette). Anime buff, powerlifter... drug dealer?! Raised in a pretty far right household but is starting to become more socially aware and, while still weighed down by some of the family prejudices, is slowly trying to broaden his perspective as sort of rebellion. Being groomed to follow dad's path in life but doesn't know if he particularly wants to. Dad might himself be involved in the drug trade and that could be why Curtis deals. Haven't decided how he gets his product but I do have one idea I'm floating by staff currently. He's Naft's Trevor's direct competition and probably undercuts Trevor by pricing his stuff very slightly cheaper than Trevor's, as well as being a nicer dude on the outside - there's a non-zero chance he sells to students from the other Kingman schools too. Powerlifts for competition as well as fun, and he's capable of some seriously impressive feats of strength. He's a member of Cochise's anime club, if not the president at least an important officer; I think the anime club is one of the ways he distributes his product, but it's also a legitimate interest. He has veto power and makes sure the creepy shit in anime stays out - he prefers the old school or more artistic stuff but is totally fine with lighter anime too. He has a genuine interest in Japanese culture and such as opposed to the stereotypical weeaboo Japan-worship, and is willing to admit the more fucked up parts of Japan; it doesn't stop him from planning a trip there, probably for the end of the year, and he might or might not want to do the slightly-cliché teach English in Japan thing. He's rather well-read in non-anime stuff too and I think tries to cultivate a cultured, pleasant image, though he's not going to go full on pretentious and wear suits to school or anything. He's a somewhat brutish looking guy, sorta the stereotypical biker image I suppose, but is courteous and well-spoken and tries to take care of his friends and customers, especially since if he's decent to people it's less likely that should they be caught with something they flip on him. He'll usually be there to coach you through your first time trying something, and he puts his foot down when it comes to selling shit that'll really fuck you up; do not ask him for something like meth, heroin or krokodil. He just won't do it.

Possible fun fact: I think he might be on choir, too, and he enjoys singing and has one hell of a singing voice. His "Ave Maria" could bring a tear to the eye.


Let me know how these guys might get on outside of being direct competitors, Naft, and y'all can let me know if any of yours might buy from him too.

School Band?
Curtis Weldon's instrument is his voice. It's beautiful.

Tardy for the Party
What Naft said. This is right off the top of my head having just got back from class stuff, so I'll think more on it and either discuss it with you or just edit in stuff later when I've thought more. I could see my first two, Brian and Roderick Kanuho (Navajo wrestler guy) getting along with both of them - they're pretty popular, at the very least in the "everyone knows of them" way, but would be pretty annoyed at any toadying. Kanuho might simultaneously respect Rhiannon's blunt nature and occasionally be a bit irritated by it - both guys would at least appreciate the honesty. Because of his rather nasty breakup with Ivy, that could be a sticking point between him and Rhiannon though. He's a senior but could be an ex of hers if you like, same for Brian, or maybe even a current fella with a bit of a distant relationship like you said, though that's more likely for B than K; most likely, any split was reasonably amicable. Something to play with if Kan is an ex of hers could be the possibility his contempt for Kingman and sort of obsessive attitude towards his training hindered the relationship. Note however that I might save Brian for v7, I'm not so sure a lot of what I've thought of for him fits the location, though it'd fit pretty well with thematic ideas I had in mind to play with; if I don't use him I'll make a new concept from bits of the framework I had set up and swap 'em in with him, similar enough in some respects to not totally screw over anyone who set up relationships with him. Neither'd be open to romantic involvement with Graciela though - for obvious reasons they'd think being with a freshman as seniors would be really creepy! If I think up a junior that'd be a maybe though - I plan to go into pregame with more characters than I plan to take onto the island, and decide who goes into the game proper as we come upon the start of v6. Also, Kaylee Lytton, the third of my initial concepts, is really pretty and also sorta in the popular crowd (fringe-ish I think) so could be a target of admiration/envy.

For Rochelle, I'll have to think on it a bit because they don't strike me as the types where she'd be immediately on their radar, let me know if anything comes to mind for you from these writeups or anything. Brian - or whatever I replace him with - would probably notice the signs of overwork and there'd be that bond of similar plights going on since he also pushes himself to the breaking point. I dunno if any of mine do tabletop stuff, I'd have to think on it, but any of the three could hang out with her and play video games and stuff. Bonus points for the idea that Roderick is a super awesome wrestler, but is about as crap at fighting games as he is good at actual fighting, and thus routinely gets his arse handed to him. Maybe she's tried to sell him on giving the tabletop stuff a try but he just doesn't get it?

Some primers on my current not-Brian concepts since they don't have full posts on them yet. First two put in pastebins because they actually got pretty long:

Roderick Kanuho

Kaylee Lytton (writeup soon; Rod took me like six hours! I'm taking a break for a bit!)

Curtis Weldon (working name for now): So far the only concept of mine who's a white dude (unless I suddenly decide he's actually a dudette). Anime buff, powerlifter... drug dealer?!
