Oh. Oh, oh! Oh! This is new! I'm getting in early! Whoa! I have a character concept, but nothing solid for a race. Lemme go put a thing together, while I actually have some time today.
I've never been super picky about posting expectations, but I tend to write a few paragraphs about once a week on a relaxed but consistent posting rotation. My forum games have a history of moving very slow, but as Dervish and Windsong over at Tiberian Ascension can attest to, I try to keep the old beasts going. :o
Humanoids, roughly, but not necessarily; I just prefer PCs that I can identify with, humanoid or not. :3
The intention was that each of our races were major players on an interstellar scale, so we've likely solved the communication barrier at least well enough for the PCs to interact.
It has yet to be seen, as I prefer to drop right into a party-sensitive scene to avoid prolonged tutorial arcs, but I imagine so far we'll be doing something about Lana's escape from her people. They don't seem too keen on letting her explore, but our characters may have some connection which we can figure out when we have enough of a party to start describing pre-existing character relationships. :D
