No worries.

thing is...

...it's easy (especially with some of the amazing players in this game) to worry so much about crafting the perfect character, the perfect post, the perfet reactions... that the game just loses the fun. It becomes a chore.

Then, you get to where you don't want to post, you lag behind, then you start to feel overwhelmed at everything going on.

Keep it simple. Where is your character when the floor starts swinging around like crazy? What does she think about it? What does she do?

That's all there is to it.

If you want to expand on this, nobody will argue. If you feel like bringing in an NPC or two, go for it. But don't feel like you have to do those things - just cover the basics, let your character's personality show through, an the rest will take care of itself.


edit: tons of typos, even for me

Also...

...to echo the boss, here: Don't sweat it if you're not an uber-Trek-geek and all the techie mumbo-jumbo doesn't come pouring right out of you. Just play the character you've got in mind and let him/her develop as they will. If you get to a point where you need some techie-drivvel or whatever, post here or send me a PM or whatever... Someone will always come running to help if you need it, I promise.

^^^^^^

Exactly what Eol just said. Don't sweat the details of deck locations, names for thingamajigs, etc. We're HAPPY to help you with that stuff.

Worry about your character's personality and how they react to situations, and you'll be fine.

But post!
