The wizards of Second Pass MUSH put their heads together and decided to advertise some character types we'd like to see on the grid.
Merchant/Smuggler: Think Humphrey Bogart, or Han Solo. Or River Song. The character runs an above-the-board shop in the bazaar by day, but is known as the person who can get you anything on Pern - for a price. Heart-of-Gold? Or running to their own moral code. You decide.
Computer Technician: A computer technician who is trying to prepare for a change of career before the inevitable end.
Printing Press Operator: taking on the project of a recently deceased Lord, how can this person make the technology useful for Pern?
D'ter: a troubled young protester now trying to shape himself up into the perfect blueriding weyrling. A favorite NPC of the game.
We are looking to run a hatching in late spring. Candidate ideas: students taking part in a biological survey of Pern. A potter's apprentice. Newly-arrived refugees.
If none of those appeals, we always have room for riders, crafters, students and other townsfolk, and there's a roster of adoptable NPCs. Come and join us at riverdark.net 1234 or see our journal at http://community.livejournal.com/2ndpas
