Partially due to time constraints on me due to a busy/hectic weekend, and also in honor of memorial day, I'd like to have a discussion this Monday. On Friday, we had a memorial for games past, and you are still welcome to post there for your favorite game that died before it was ready. Today, I'd like to talk about a character that you want to play.
Often we have characters in mind that, despite wanting to, we just haven't been able to play them in a game. Maybe no one else runs that kind of game. Maybe it just never fits in, or otherwise wouldn't work out. Either way, we want to play, and have been so far denied this pleasure.
For me, it's simple. I want to play a mech pilot. Specifically, a mech pilot in a war story. I've had a few chances to do this, but have never just been able to go all for the mech angle on it. Not even (necessarily) the ace pilot, but just a solid all rounder or something. For me, this is hard as not many people are into mechs as much as I am. Still, some day I'm sure I will. Even if I just have to talk someone into running Heavy Gear again.
How about you?
