Allow me to suggest a placeholder, like so:

Prosciutto Gedankenwurst has impeccable fashion sense, something he learned in the sartorial pits of (colony where personal appearance is of great social importance).

Work out the details of where and what the sartorial pits are if the character concept gets selected.

Pick a large planet with thick atmosphere, warm temperatures, and a short day. Navabharata looks good.

Well done!

sir_pudding deftly lodges his tender, leaving Luke Bunyip alone to face the horrors of my terrible characters!

The men I sent to Luke's house with electric cattle prods have done their work well! His battered and bleeding hulk promised to get around to it some time.

I'm curious how you are going to make the selections. I suspect that all of the tenders are pretty good.

So am I. However I do it is sure to be easier than getting five people to reach a consensus choice among 4! (= 24) possible assignments. The viking hat's decision doesn't have to be optimal so long as it is a decision.

Yes, but only some of them make points or ask questions about FLAT BLACK that would never have occurred to me. For instance, I would never have seen the analogy between the Mayflowerites and the Jews of the Diaspora and Babylonian Exile. Only some of them represent players hitting personal bests.

That is really cool! Now I feel like I should go back to the drawing board and be a little less cliche. :(

Knock yourself out! We're waiting on that unbearable slug of a bunyip anyway, and I'm far more of an outcome guy than a process guy.

And Jeff has already lodged one revision.
