Did somebody die (a char)? Or did a player leave us?

Bunn left, summer was pretty much a 4 player game, so I opened it up again since you and NOA hadn't been around much. Now that you're back, another player or two will put us put to a full complement.

I am interested in creating things. For science!

Once trying to perfect humans, Ziou has created many mutant creatures and abominations in the process. Many of his experiments either die by his hand or killed by so called heros, the heritics of science. It is not his fault humans he experimented on drowned, burned, suffocated, bleed, and other various ways to death, t is not his fault they are inferior. And he is most certianl not crazy, after all he does not experiment on himself until he knows for certian that whatever was implanted in humans is safe for him to use. He has not found any yet, but eventually he will!

Skills wanted:
Surgeon/autopsier
Taxidermist
Bioenchancement

Quarg and ALB expressed interest simultaneously, so even though I was looking for 2, I'm going to allow 3. Their characters, along with Synch's will be introduced the next morning, gametime. Synch's character has been pretty much set, but I'll work with Quarg and ALB to flesh out theirs in the time between now and when they start. For the new players, just want to give you a heads up that my current update schedule is Sunday/Thursday, with the opportunity to update in between if I have actions for everyone.

Have a look over the game intro stuff (feel free to catch up on game progress if you'd like) and let me know if you have any questions. Some of the game mechanics as stated early on may have changed in the interim, I haven't looked over those recently to make sure they are current.

Draft Character:
Lady Kew Dart MacIver

Description: She looks like a tall skinny boy with short red hair and green eyes. At just under two meters tall and as strait as a post, she seems either too girlish to be a handsome boy and too boyish to be even called 'attractive' as a young woman. The odd, slightly slanted green eyes and brown skin with naturalyl red head point to her mixed ancestry. She tends to dress in long pants make of dark blue canvas, a man's white dress shirt, a school blazer (Immortal College, Oxford), a fedora and riding boots.
[Height]=1.80 meters
[Weight]=74 kg
[Eyes]=Green
[Hair]=red
[Skin]=dark Caucasian

Background: Kew is the daughter of the Baronet Angus ' The Paper King' MacIver, a spark of remarkably little note except that he invented the paper clip and the machine to mass manufacture them. Which made him something of an oddity in England, a spark of unremarkable genius but startling wealth. His daughter went to the best schools in England where, she too became renowned, for the invention of quick drying hot glue...and demonstrating its ability to render clanks inoperable. She won the Fighting Clanks Event at the British Clank Games eight years ago with the smallest winning clank known, Mr. Fusion (nothing more than a heated glue pot on wheels with a fireman's pump). Which is her trademark of small, simple, elegant, and function type of designs.
Kew was recruited by the Thames House out of University. Kew is known to work for Queen Albia as one of the Queen's trusted 'Fixers'. A woman who can destroy a clank with a yard of string, gum, and last weeks newspaper.

How has the Baron caught her? Is sending her here really his plan or her plan? Or is it her plan that he knows is her plan so now he wants to know why so it is his plan to find out why? And where is the horse?

Aptitude: Chemistry....

Items:
A metal box of Paper King┬® paperclips from size 0 to 9
A pair of black glasses
A pocket multi-tool consisting of a knife, screwdriver, spoon, file, bottle opener, awl, pliers, and wire stripper
A metal cane that is actually a series of graduated containers increasing in size.

I'm not good at metric, despite being a scientist and using it for flavor here. (Silly American measuring) I glossed right over just how tall and thin she is.

Same problem here Spider I just used my quick rules of thumb rather than a real converter and made some serious errors on height (5'11") and weight (165 lbs) of the original archtype...
