Now, let me preface this by saying that an open role-play thread doesn't need an out-of-character thread; but it seems to me that these forums deviate from the usual formulae that were once imposed on me in other (now tragically decrepit) RP boards. So, if any of you are inclined to inquire about the IC thread or feel some need to post a character sheet (which you shouldn't, this being an open RP), feel free to act on those impulses. If you want to scrutinize my role-playing ability, and I wouldn't blame you for doing so (my being new to these forums), then ask me anything you like. I have nearly a decade under my belt.
And it's fine to hop in the IC without posting here, first. I was reluctant to make this thread in the first place.
