Morgan Ackland:

Profile-Well first of all, I think Morgan had a really good profile. It could probably have worked in V4 and even V5 with a few touchups. She's a normal, ordinary girl, and I think she works really well as a normal girl, especially when compared to some of the less normal characters of V3.

Game-Morgan's game was pretty short. She only had 3 threads, and one of them consisted of a single post before leaving. Still, she had a good rapport with James (despite them being handled by the same handler, I think they worked fairly well and got turns in the limelight), she was fairly believably scared and freaking out and being very cowardly and afraid without being cartoonish. I think she was a strong character, and relatively consistent in breaking down overall.

Death-That formatting. There was so much format play that seemed unnecessary and gratuitous it really distracted from what wasn't a terrible death itself. It seemed cheap and I wasn't very fond of it.

Overall-Morgan was a solid character, not super standout but with no real weaknesses, and I think she was pretty realistic, although her death was excessively formatted.

Score-7

Roll me another!

Joseph Cande:

Profile-Well besides the very short appearance, nothing seems out of order. Fairly standard aside from the parenthetical notions. Emoticons, random dinosaurs, what is this? He's fairly flat though, consisting mostly of references to his obsession to ninjas, so I wasn't sure where he'd go in-game.

Game-Well Joe had even less than Morgan, and shared a thread with her, except he only like had one post there. His primary trait was being a doofus, and he attacked someone with pretty much no provocation. Still, I guess he didn't have any massive weaknesses or flaws, so it's not terrible, just kind of mediocre.

Death-Not much to say since Joe wasn't actually posted with when he died. It was a bit contrived, I guess.

Overall-Meh, nothing really standout, and really one-dimensional from what he had.

Score-5

Ready for Round 3!

Jodene wasn't good.

First, the profile. She's a completely normal person. Her profile avoids a lot of the craziness in early V3, but it almost went /too far/ in the other direction. She's a completely normal person with nothing really memorable about her. She's smart, but not really. She has friends, but she doesn't stand out. She has siblings that outdo her and career aspirations that aren't explained and there's nothing that I find any reason to care about. Also, none of her hobbies are even alluded to in the biography.

She immediately decides to play because she wants to survive... and become famous, I guess. The motivations behind this aren't explained too well, though it has something to do with proving that she's a good as her siblings. She quickly murders someone after pretending to help her, and.... then she goes inactive in her very next post. Jodene finds herself in the great Wade Wilson Inactive Massacre, in which she has a sudden change of heart and then is immediately killed by Wade in a completely over the top disgusting way while he's hallucinating that she's a succubus. This is, of course, told from Wade's point of view, so she doesn't really get a proper death post.

Her handler, "Deleted User", was a complete newbie, and it shows. The writing isn't good and the dialogue is very awkward. Maybe Jodene would have gotten better over time if she hadn't gone inactive, but... she did. So that's that.

Roll me another one, please.

So. Melina Frost.

Profile: Well, aside from the fact that I'm pretty sure the Irish Mafia isn't really a thing (according to Wikipedia, there's an Irish Mob, but that's something different), there's the fact that Melina's whole personality in-game stems from a sexual assault that happened when she was a young teen. That, combined with the fact that her own wiki page admits that she's a copy of Mariavel Varella, pretty much sets the tone for Melina's story.

Pre-game: We get a memory thread in which Melina is either thirteen or fifteen (she's stated to be fifteen, and then in a later paragraph she's thirteen? It's a oneshot so we don't get any clarification) that covers the sexual assault mentioned in her profile in really gratuitous detail. I'm pretty sure we can all understand the problem with "assault victim turns nymphomaniac", so I won't go into detail here. After that, Melina appears in the beach party thread, where she beats up Eduardo Trinidad-Villa for no reason and then leaves.

V3 Proper: As much as I was complaining in chat, Melina wasn't really excruciating so much as mostly underwhelming with a few moments of shock value thrown in. Spelling and grammar errors are pretty rampant in her posts, and for the most part they're pretty short. Melina tries really hard to pull off the "master manipulator" archetype and this doesn't work because A) everyone she meets already knows her as a manipulative bully and B ) her only tactic ever is crocodile tears, which she usually ditches in about two posts anyway. There are some attempts later on to make Melina more sympathetic and vulnerable, but by then she's already done so much crazy shit that it's a lost cause. Then she goes inactive.

Death: Melina's death was handled by SOTF Help after she went inactive, and while it was a vast improvement in general writing quality, I'm not really pleased with the fact that she managed to kill two more characters, who weren't inactive themselves, in her death thread. It was a decent enough ending for Melina's character though.

Overall: I'd be more forgiving if Melina had more of a concept than "psycho bitch who will have sex with anyone", but as it is, she's just a failed attempt at a Mitsuko Souma-style villain. If you want an all-girl death squad, read the softball team from V5 instead.

Don't be so gauche, Steve, it's beneath you."
