Oh God so we have two hammers, a scalpel and I guess Alex is going to be the surgeon

Well, one hammer is for after you already opened the patient and the other is to tenderize the area of the incision before you open the patient and both can work to test reflexes with your knee.

@Argonaut24 Good to see your making progress. But I will need those finished before I can give a legit yes. :) Also I stupidly thought your were making one character who was a Krogan Juggernaut. X) Not to be questioning of your skills but you sure you wanna run two characters with the post length we got going on? I mean if you got it then go ahead. But Idk if I would X)

@BattleCore With two grizzly ex-mercs we are looking a lot more like a suicide squad. X) Firefights we can handle, if we can keep from killing each other or being arrested will be a whole other thing. X)

@goblinclock Well, honestly this would be my first advanced RP and I was kinda hoping to make up the length with two characters but I think I can definitely get a couple of paragraphs for each character. But in my opinion these two round out the team, you have a sniper, assault class leader, assault class CQC, and a support class character.

@Argonaut24 Fair enough. Yeah maybe make one big post that runs both of them, or two whatever doesn't really matter. :D As long as we arnt getting one liners that give nothing to work with we will be just fine. :) Personally I have found it gets easier and easier to get length the more you push for it. But in the end you dont actually need a book all the time. Looking forward to seeing the profiles finished. :D

@Argonaut24 Awesome :) Quick bit of advice, if your ever struggling to get a post out. Something I do is try to write all my posts so they are internally consistent enough to be taken out of context of the rp and still make sense. Like you could take all the characters posts and slap them in a doc and have a story that makes sense, written from their point of view. That means maybe repeating some info and events from other peoples posts, but through the filter of how your character sees and experiences them. Gives insight into your character, and maybe gets your length if your struggling about what to say. :D Sorry. You didn't ask but... I might be overly into RPing as a hobby X) Couldn't help myself.

What I'm trying to figure out is the level of respect Emile and the Krogan would have for Alex. I'd like to think that even a crude mercenary would have that level of respect for Alex being an N7 that they won't outright disobey his command. An N7 is no joke, Shepherd has cut through multiple Blue Sun mercenaries so I think by that factor, the Blue Suns would respect Alex like one predator to another. Once again, the shadow of Shephard looms over Alex like his father.

@goblinclock
Thank you! Advice is always welcome!

@BattleCore
Theyre more than likely gonna be tough and hard for Alex but if we go with the suicide squad thought, then all the criminals will be implanted with explosive devices, but also, they're mercenaries so they are all about personal gain, getting off scotch free from the crimes they committed is I think a big factor if they follow you or not.
