WHO is your character? Name, age, race, and personality are all preferred.

Name: Nuclear Fusion
Age: 24
Race: Earth Pony
Personality: Skittish and withdrawn

HOW do they act? With friends, with strangers, with authority figures?

Calm around friends, soft spoken around strangers, however very serious and speaks up when around authority figures. Mares usually cause him to become even more shy and embarrassed, the only exception being mares who are authority figures.

WHAT do they want? Money, power, fame? Glory in battle or a sedentary life?

Nuclear simply wants a place to settle down and work on his inventions while living an average wastelander life.

WHAT will they do to reach their goals?

Nuclear is willing to do many things to earn the caps to this goal, including kill if need be.

Additionally, a couple of situational questions:

A ZEBRA FOAL stares at you, one you have never seen before. He asks you where his momma is, but what he doesn't know is that you passed her destroyed caravan a while ago. The foal doesn't seem to know about the accident... so what do you do with him? He'll not survive very far on his own, and seems to be a sweet, if simple-minded, child. However, your next destination happens to be many miles away, and you need to be there, fast. The foal will only slow you down. What do you do?

Take the child with me to my next destination to attempt to find him a home. Even if I'm late, as long as the matter isn't life or death I'm sure I'd be able to at least drop the kid off in a room to go to whatever business I had

A DISSATISFIED HUSBAND hires you to (covertly) keep an eye on his wife while he's out of town. While watching her from a distance, you notice that she's spending a lot of time with a younger stallion. After much observation, you find that they're very close together. The husband has mentioned that neither he, nor his wife, have children in the age-range of that stallion, nor do they have family living in the town. It's possible the mare is cheating on her husband- however, you can't find enough evidence to point either way, and confronting the mare about it could end up blowing you out of your (sizable) pay. What do you do?

Stay quiet for now and continue watching. I have no evidence, and while my imagination may run free, it's not the same as proof.

AN OLD GRIFFON confronts you. He's battle-hardened, obviously having been in a few battles in his time. When he sees you, he stops in the middle of the road, but doesn't open fire- approaching him, and beginning to talk about his strange behavior, he reveals that he's been searching for someone strong enough to kill him. Your party looks like it'll do the trick. However, he notes that he doesn't have too long to live, as a rampant disease is eating away at his years. He'll likely die within a week, but he wants to die on his own terms, not bedridden and sick, going out in a final blaze of glory. Do you grant him his wish of an honorable death, or do you leave him be?

Grant him his wish as long as he gives us a small time to prepare. He wants to die on his terms, that much I can respect and hope if something similar happens to me, others will respect my choice as well.

So, I've got a possible lineup of players:

1: sophos, Home Free, Pegasus
2: Gman64, (currently unnamed filly), Earth Pony
3: Hivana, Azure Charm, Earth Pony
4: Shady_Steps, Hot Shot, Unicorn
5: MajorSkinnyPants, Prismatic Haiku, Unicorn
6: NitoKa, Nuclear Fusion, Earth Pony

Six players is usually a good number. I'll be having everyone discuss stuff in #ContractOOC on Canternet. The game will probably start after I've gotten everything prepared and the first couple sessions planned out.

Prismatic: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc ... sp=sharing
My character is Prismatic Haiku, a 32 year old Unicorn Stallion who is wise, respectful, and a bit quiet, despite liking others being around him, but beware, if triggered at all (which would be near impossible), his anger is not something you should be looking forward to.
Around friends, he is as silent as he normally is, almost never speaking up unless the time arises or if someone comes up to him, which he will gladly engage in conversation. As mentioned earlier he enjoys the company of others. When the group is camping for the night, for most of the time he is awake, Prismatic can be found meditating, but will not be offended if somepony wants to talk and will immediately stop to shift his full attention to them. Around strangers, unless they seem like they're up to no good (Based off of clothing, tone of voice, choice of words, etc.), he'll treat them with the same respect and politeness he treats his friends with, but they will actually have to become friends with him if he is going to defend them with his life and remain forever loyal to them. Around Authority figures, he is the same, gladly following orders when given, provided the figure has positive intentions. He is fiercely loyal to both his authorities and friends, to the point where he values their friendship or respect over his own life.

Prismatic wants nothing more then to help everypony good possible, and to face evils that many would shiver and run away at. He doesn't care about pay, as long as what he's doing is what he thinks is right, and to serve his superiors, and friends, with honor. He'll go extreme on this to achieve his goals of respect, even if it means charging at a hellhound with nothing more then a Katana.

Reactions to situations
Zebra Foal: He'd take him in and try to raise him. The foal doesn't deserve to die out here on his own, there's no reason for him to, he's so young and has much to learn. Besides, all life is precious in the wastelands. He'd put the foal on his back and continue towards his destination, making sure the foal feels comfortable throughout their journeys together.
Husband and Cheating: He'd directly confront both of them at once, stating how it was dishonorable and disrespectful to do such things, saying both of them are disgraces to their ancestors. After that, he'd inform the husband of what he saw, regardless of evidence or not.
Old Griffon: Obviously, this Griffon has seen some combat, and it would be honorable to go out like this. He promptly agrees to the Griffon's terms, but also challenges him to an honorable one-on-one duel. If he declines, he will then proceed, but if he agrees, they will battle it out, where the Griffon will go out in a blaze of glory.

Sorry for the wait, but presenting Explosivo!

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AocfmDHzRv0GdHpWQUxJWlBLQ1BDTWRsUHdsZmY4T3c#gid=1

Explosivo is a 14 year old pink coated orange maned (somehow wildly uncontrolled, yet held in pigtails) Earth Pony, with a love for anything that explodes (balloons, explosives, bubbles (soap and gum), inflatables, whatever), as well as a soft spot for sniping.

No matter the person, she's mainly gonna try and spread cheer however, make them smile, and give a bit of sunshine to the wastes.

The main thing she wants is to cheer up everyone, and barring that find a lot of entertainment for herself, MoM outposts are good for both ends.

The best she can do to reach her goals is anything in her power, provided that's a bit limited, but she'll work on it.

Zebra Foal: Cheer him up and bring him along, he'll no doubt bring someone joy and he'll probably feel better.

Dissatisfied Husband: Confront the wife, do what she can to keep it under wraps but push comes to shove forget the mission, in the end caps are just caps, and her joy is the main importance.

Old Griffon: Do what she can to cheer him up, when that inevitably fails help him find his challenge since the honorable death will bring him cheer. I mean, being blown up or sniped by a small filly isn't that honorable.

Wispy Smoke, 21, unicorn

Wispy is a laid back colt from a small town where his family ran a small hookah bar. He's always been content living in the wasteland until they were attacked by raider. Now he travels the wasteland looking to see what all is has in store. He knows about living on the road more than the factions that walk it with him but he's never quick to judge someone on who they are or what they've done.

With friends Wispy is a real pal who will stretch his neck out for them every time. With strangers he always tries to leave a good impression and is always looking forward to call them a friend. When it comes to authority figures Wispy always makes sure to watch what he says and always makes sure to treat them kindly, after all, treat others as you would want them to treat you.

All Wispy is looking for right now is a new step in his life. He's looking for a segment where if he were to tell someone about his life he would have plenty to say. Though his long term goal is to open up his own hookah bar in a bigger city.

Wispy is willing to go through just about anything to live a fulfilling life because many say that just can't happen in the wasteland but he wants to prove it can. He's willing to go job to job to raise the caps for him in the now, and for the long term.

THE ZEBRA FOAL: Wispy would get down to the young zebra's level and explain to him the accident he saw, and offer him to join Wispy. I mean no one knows for sure if the caravan was his mothers, for all they know she could be out there looking for him... right?

A DISSATISFIED HUSBAND: Wispy would tell the husband exactly what he saw, for all he knows it could be someone they know in the town. If the husband seems angry at hearing that simply tell him it's best just to openly talk about to each other. It's better to know things than to live with the thought of doubt.

AN OLD GRIFFON: After hearing his story Wispy would gladly accept his request and fight with all of his might but only if he will tell him his name. Not a lot of people in the wasteland get to die to their terms, let alone honorably. Then if the griffon is slain Wispy would make sure to give him a proper burial with a tombstone with his name and probably say something along the lines of, "Though we have only just met, it was nice to see someone not give up until they were satisfied. You could have thrown yourself into the wasteland and let the first thing you see just defeat you, but you beat it. You could have taken your own life, but you didn't. you fought with fire in your soul that would not go out until it faced a worthy foe. I glad I was able to help you in the end, I'm glad you're at peace with yourself."
