    Genre: Hard SF survival horror.

    Difficulty Rating: 4 – Difficult – Life is hard. People tend to have their own motivations, danger lurks everywhere, and information is a valuable commodity. Failures are sown into the flesh.

    Profession: Expert in a non-combat field.
    Possessions: All gear is considered OSP (on-site procurement).
    Profile: I need a physical description suitable for the whiteboard, a personality synopsis, justification for competencies beyond the profession and basic necessity, and the top three motivators for action (What things make the character feel they must take action?).
    Restrictions: No untreated mental/physical drawbacks of 2 or greater, no social drawbacks of 3 or greater

    Session #: date
    Name: C M NC NS
    Keiran Lockley (Darren): 0 1 0 2
    Ken Lee Tse (Alex): 1 0 0 0
    Sam Sterling (Phil): 1 0 0 2
    Tim Seger (NPC): 0 1 0 0

    1 NS: To everyone that showed up, thanks.

    Scene 1 – Keiran, Ken, Sam, and Tim emerge from hiding

    Keiran Lockley: 1 M for actively applying metaphysical-type abilities in pursuit of his goals
    Keiran Lockley: 1 NS for roleplaying very true to character despite negative in-game effects

    Ken Lee Tse: 1 C for actively applying combat skills in pursuit of his goals
    Ken Lee Tse: -2 NS for meta-gaming by assuming the players would not RP true to character and making decisions based on that invalid reasoning

    Sam Sterling: 1 C for actively applying combat skills in pursuit of his goals
    Sam Sterling: 1 NS for roleplaying very true to character despite negative in-game consequences

    Tim Seger: 1 NC for tactically responsible noncombat action in pursuit of his goals

    Notes

    Alex: Stop metagaming. Darren and Phil are perfectly good role-players and assuming they are not is an insult. Think of Ken, Keiran, Sam, and Tim; not Alex, Darren, Phil, and Xy.

    Darren: Your action posts should be in present tense. Save future tense for intentions or as part of tells.

    Xy: Pay attention to the damn game, you’re the GM.
