Yeah, there's a surprise.

You are a Fiona! This free-spirited Seelie house
has adopted the cause of the commoners in the
noble courts. They are very passionate and
prone to strife-ridden romances.


What Changeling noble house are you?

This is me, jumping on the RP bandwagon...

Name: Lisa
Alias: Roane, selkie, Aiobhell


Years roleplaying: Counting the very first time Jason got me to play Champions on a choir tour bus, 14. On a semi-regular basis, 9.
Favourite characters? Jake, Janie, Marisol
Least favourite character? Hellcat, my first regular Champions character. She was ever comic book stereotype you can imagine, and not in a good way.
Male or female characters? Almost entirely female. I've done male NPCs, and three very short-lived male PCs.
Oldest character? Still active, that'd be my D&D elf ranger, Liana Silverwillow, four years. First character ever, that'd be Hellcat.
Newest character? Charity McMullen, my Slayer in 's Buffy game.
Most popular character? That would probably have to be Jake, the selkie I played online for about three years.
Character you've never played? Aislinn, Jake's daughter--no, I never really played her.

Which character of yours would be most likely to...

Jump off a bridge? Caitlin the satyr
Get drunk and pass out? Caitlin again--she has, regularly.
Kill somebody in a very unorthodox way? Marisol the Ailil sidhe. Or possibly Jake, who did kill someone with a sea shell once.
Get married? Jake, who did get married.
Be far too hyper for their own good? Elen the childling boggan.
Rape somebody? Val, the Shadow Court troll.
Be raped? Probably Jake, she was a little victimy at times.
Get lost and refuse to ask for directions? Liana
Get lung cancer? I don't know that I've ever played a character who smoked regularly.
Star in a horror movie? Janie, my Deadlands character. Her life is a horror movie.
Star in a whore movie? Caitlin. See above, "her life, etc".
Star in a video game? Liana
Make the world a better place? Jake. At least, she'd try.
Have a torrid gay love affair? Gotta go with Caitlin the satyr again.

Relate each word to a character of yours:
Love: Jake, Liana
Hate: Janie
Money: Marisol
Seduction: Elena, my old Shadow Court Leanhaun baroness, Marisol
Lies: Marisol, Val
Tragedy: Janie, Jake
Manipulation: Marisol
Violence: Val, Janie
Politics: Jake
Fire: Kit, Caitlin's younger self, essentially
Ice: Val

Would you ever...
Play a prostitute? Been there, done that. Kit turned (non-RPed) tricks for heroin
Play a musician? My first MUSH character, Rhiannon, was a street musician homeless runaway teenager satyr from an Irish family. Hey, at least she didn't have red hair.
Play a pilot? Sure, if the concept came to me.
Play a homosexual? I've played bi, so why not?
Play a pedophile? Maybe NPC, I can't envision a decent PC concept for that.
Play a politician? With the fae, everything's politics.
Create a character for the sole purpose of smut? Yeah, I have. :P
Play a character who commits incest? Let's not delve too deeply into Marisol and Sebastian's past, shall we?

Geek alert

I knew I was in trouble when Mer was counting on me to have updated this morning. Apparently I do need a more interesting life.

Gaming is very much on my brain lately, both computer and RPG. Dark Age of Camelot is sucking me in, without the level of frustration that EverQuest caused. The cats hate the game, by the way, because it means I'm not sitting on the couch, and therefore am not available as a lap. I know I've been playing too long when they start circling my feet and whining.

Also, Mer's Buffy game is taking up headspace too. Weird stuff is starting to happen, and Charity isn't reacting like a normal human being (i.e., running away when scary monsters show up). On one level it bothers me, because I try to play normal humans as normal humans instead of as roleplaying characters. (That might not make sense to anyone but me. You know, where you do things because that's what you do in a game, as opposed to what a normal person would do?) But on the other hand, Charity isn't a normal human, she just doesn't know it yet. So I'm trying to rationalize my non-normal behavior (i.e., kicking a demon instead of running away), as her Slayer-ish side coming out. I guess I just kinda feel a little rusty, roleplaying-wise.

Also, it looks like I'll be running Changeling again soon. This, I feel geeked about. I was really disappointed in how my last chronicle ended. I sorta botched it as a GM, and the ending wasn't satisfying for me or the players. But, after a lot of talk between me and Dawn and Jason, we're going to start a new chronicle in the same world, just a few years later. I have some ideas of what I want to do. I'll just need to dig out my old notes to see where I was going. :) Honestly, I wasn't nearly as comfortable running 7th Sea or Tribe 8, just because with Changeling, I knew the system and my world cold. So this should be fun.
