And how do we connect an English Journalist with a low-level Mafia Goodfellow?

He's writing about gourmet honey.

Well maybe he doesn't have to be English, or he moved here a long time ago, and there's no reason a journalist shouldn't know people in the mafia.

This is why I ask, Gemini.


I suppose I could loosen the "Childhood Friends" angle. I want the characters to at least be good friends, though.

Well depending on how long you want the p.c s to have been friends, he could have been here 5 years or pretty much all his life, I don't really mind.

Alright. You guys finish tweaking and give me some background, and we'll get started. You can iron out your relationship here in this thread so we know just how long you've been friends, etc.

We might still add another player if someone shows more interest, but for now, it's a two-man show.

I got my sheet finished. Now I just need to write up his backstory. How is he to know this Englishman?

That signature gear makes me a little ill. :)

As for the friendship, perhaps a young Master Hayes came to the US with his family for a time during his teens, and you met in school, then he went back to the UK, grew up, and became a successful journalist.

Tricked out to look inconspicuous.

That might work.

I figure my character is the son of an Irishman and the sister of another low-level mafia member, and he was only able to get in because of his uncle, though he has never been able to rise through the ranks because of his parentage.

He's done some time for a robbery he was involved in, and they could definitely get him for a RICO violation if they ever looked into him too closely. He lives upstate now and raises bees. He got interested in honey after they helped smuggle in a shipment of the gourmet stuff back in the late nineties. They keep him upstate as their car guy now, and he does work mostly with shipments.

He was in the army for a while in the nineties as well, between the gulf war and the return to Iraq, so during the boring years. But he could have met a reporter during that time, if he was stationed somewhere. But our reporter here looks to be too young. He's only twenty-nine, whereas my guy is about thirty-six. I guess I could change that to make it work, but if you want us to be childhood friends, that's not going to be easy. Looking at Richard's skills, I see that he has Savoir-Faire (Mafia). Maybe my guy did a job in England and that's how they met? I'd be pretty interested in learning how an Englishman got such high Guns skills. No easy access to pistols over in England is there?

So, let's say the Englishman moved to the US a long time ago, and he grew in the same neighborhood as my character. Maybe he was even involved in some low-level mafia operations in his youth, perhaps with my character.

I would be potentially interested, but I've never actually played in a PbP, so I'm not sure how this works properly.
